you may know cbd for skincare is great, but have you tried out cbg? cbg or cannabigerol is referred to as “the mother of all cannabinoids” because ALL cannabinoids start as cbg. cannabinoids come from acids catalyzed by heat or uv light— a process called decarboxylation. cannabinoids, including cbg, interact with our endocannabinoid system, which regulates and controls the body’s most critical functions including; learning and memory, emotional processing, sleep, temperature control, pain management, inflammatory and immune responses, and food intake.
the body’s largest organ, the skin, contains a multitude of these cannabinoid receptors. cbg is the cannabinoid highest in antioxidant properties which helps to protect the skin from causes of premature aging by generating a protective layer on the skin’s surface. cannabigerol increases the productions of sebum, helping to shed dead skin cells, hydrate and protect the skin—resulting in youthful looking skin.
additionally, cbg is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory, making it helpful for alleviating skin issues such as psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, and acne. by stimulating the regeneration of skin tissue, cbg helps to protect against inflammation caused by burns and minor wounds.
not only is cannabigerol beneficial when used topically to improve health and appearance of skin, but it also provides an uplifting & energizing effect, when used internally, which promotes focus and mental clarity, improves mood, relieves anxiety, supports a healthy stress response—all without the sedation that can sometimes be caused by cbd. cbg is has the ability to help strengthen the function of anandamide—a neurotransmitter that affects the pleasure and motivation areas of the brain.
