What is CBG?
Cannabigerol (CBG) is the result of CBGA, the acidic precursor for this pivotal cannabinoid. It is considered a minor cannabinoid because it is typically available in relatively low volumes compared to major cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabiol (THC) (under one percent).
