CBG (cannabigerol) is a type of cannabinoid found in marijuana strains. It is present in most varieties of hemp and has a very low THC content. This means that CBG does not contain psychoactive properties that make you get high.
CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it doesn't cause the "high" associated with THC. It works by inhibiting an enzyme called ID-20, responsible for producing inflammation. When this enzyme is inhibited, inflammation goes down. Pets can benefit from CBG because it reduces cell anti-inflammation with no psychoactive effects.
Since discovering CBG in 1964, scientists have made significant findings on how CBG benefits the well-being of humans as well as pets.
CBG can be helpful in treating a variety of disorders that are not as responsive to more traditional medicines.
As far as pets are concerned, CBG is believed to be one of the most powerful cannabinoids for treating pets.
While it is very new to the market and there are very few studies, preclinical studies have shown some promise. The list of CBC benefits for pets:
Better urinary health
Increase in brain function
Helps animals relax and be more mentally alert
Promotes pathogen resistance
Boosts immune support
Has calming effect
Supports cellular health
Supports strong bones and joints
CBG is safe, and gentle and has shown to be very effective in treating a variety of pet disorders. It's no wonder CBG is referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids.
