Cannabigerol (CBG)

« Back to Glossary Index




CBG (cannabigerol) is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. It’s been dubbed the “mother of all cannabinoids.” This is because cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), an acidic version of CBG, is used to make additional cannabinoids.

CBG is found in lesser amounts in cannabis plants than other cannabinoids. Only 1% of CBG is found in most strains of the plant, compared to 20% to 25% CBD and 25% to 30% THC.
