CBG for Anxiety & Mental Health
Cannabis and hemp possess a virtually infinite potential for the world of health and wellness and have already proven to be both physically and psychologically beneficial by amateur and anecdotal experience and scientific investigation. Cannabigerolic acid—also known as CBGA—is one of the many derivative byproducts of hemp, and emerging studies are beginning to highlight its amazing benefits in the realm of mental health.
What are CBGA and CBG?
Before we dig into how CBGA and CBG can help your brain, let’s take a quick look at what they are and how they work.
Both CBG and CBGA are cannabinoids, and they share this classification with better-known cannabis derivatives, like THC and CBD. In its acidic form, CBGA (sometimes written as CBG-A) breaks down into one of the many cannabinoids. In some instances, it may break down into CBG.
Right now, CBG research is in its infancy. Compared to many of the other cannabinoids, it hasn’t seen as much scientific or social interest. However, with technology and efforts surrounding cannabis legalization growing daily, more studies are being conducted on CBGA and CBG than ever before.
CBG works by binding to both CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain, nervous system, and immune system, providing full-body benefits and protection. Once in your body, CBG helps to increase the production of anandamide. Anandamide is a neurotransmitter that helps with pain regulation, sleep cycles, appetite, and motivation/mood.
Because this cannabinoid is lesser-known and less studied, CBG is more difficult to find in the marketplace. While you may find CBG for sale at a local dispensary, it’s not a common item to find.
Fortunately, Myriam’s Premium Hemp Products online store is always open, and we stock plenty of CBG oils and tinctures. Keep reading to explore more about CBG
Does CBG Make You High?
No! CBG does not make you high.
CBG is a nonintoxicating cannabinoid, unlike the more popular ones like THC or THCA. Taking CBG does not impact motor function or perception, and is safe to take if you prefer to avoid intoxicants.
CBG for Mental Health
Aside from its many physical benefits, CBG has been shown to improve mental health. Its use has been reported to alleviate a variety of psychiatric symptoms, and respondents in one study even lauded CBG as a more effective treatment plan than their conventional medicinal routine.
CBG & Anxiety
Anxiety is a huge problem in the modern world. We are constantly surrounded by stimulation, and our stress will often morph into anxiety. While there are plenty of treatments available, many of them often cause negative side effects, or just don’t give you the relief you want. Fortunately, CBG is different, and can safely be taken alongside other methods of alleviating anxiety.
Does CBG Work for Anxiety?
CBG has been proven to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, and studies suggest that it does so without the negative effects of many standard pharmaceuticals.
While we don’t know exactly why this is, we do know that CBG promotes muscle relaxation. Paired with its ability to promote dopamine production, CBG mimics the way we naturally deal with anxiety.
Think of it as a massage for your mind. When you’re feeling stressed and anxious, you’ll often find a spot to relax and unwind. When you’re lounging on your sofa, you’re relaxing your muscles. At the same time, your brain is releasing plenty of dopamine, which is responsible for happy thoughts and positive feelings.
CBG for Depression
Thanks to the release of dopamine, CBG also doubles as a potent ward against depression.
Many of the physical effects of CBG are also linked to common causes of depression. One of the most common is chronic pain, which is often relieved by CBG’s anti-inflammatory properties.
For individuals with other ailments, such as AIDS or cancer, CBG is also shown to stimulate appetites. As a result, many users report feeling more energized, as they are naturally encouraged to eat a hearty meal after using CBG.
Where Can I Get CBG?
We’ve already mentioned it, but let’s look a little deeper into the issue of availability. Because CBG is not one of the more popular cannabinoids, it tends to be harder to find.
