How CBG Relieves Inflammatory Pain

Opinion by Jake Crossman

Cannabigerol, more commonly known as CBG, is considered the stem cell of cannabinoids. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has more potent anti-inflammatory effects than CBD because of how it interacts with CB2 receptors in your body, which are the receptors responsible for pain and inflammation.

This interaction makes CBG potent and effective for relieving inflammatory joint and muscle pain. The effects of CBG are incredible, and the more we learn, the more astonishing CBG begins to seem. Even new research from the National Library of Medicine suggests CBG as an anti-cancer, Alzheimer’s, and IBD treatment.

How CBG Relieves Inflammatory Pain

CBG, much like CBD, is entirely organic and naturally occurring. It is not synthetic or produced in a lab environment. The extraction process used for our CBG is very delicate since the extraction must be done on very young and immature hemp plants. This early extraction allows for the full benefits of CBG, which are extraordinary. 

Some of the many benefits of CBG are as follows: 

  • Fighting inflammation
  • Reducing pain
  • Reducing joint and muscle stiffness
  • IBD and Crohn’s relief
  • Treating glaucoma
  • Treating bacterial infections

The main benefit that we are focusing on today and probably the most noticeable when taking a CBG supplement is its ability to fight inflammation in the body. 

How Inflammation Is Reduced With CBG 

According to Webster’s dictionary, inflammation is “…a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.” There are two types of inflammation. The primary type of inflammation your body uses to heal itself is acute Inflammation, which comes on rapidly as the body’s response to trauma or an injury. For example, if you are skiing and sprain your wrist on a fall, the body’s response is sending blood to the affected area. While this is not a bad thing, the trouble lies in the second type of inflammation called Chronic Inflammation. This type of inflammation can lead to a host of health issues.

A variety of different factors can bring on chronic inflammation; the most notable of them are listed below:

  • Obesity
  • Allergens
  • Stress
  • Sleep problems

In a study published by the National Library of Medicine, scientists compared common acute inflammation treatments versus taking CBG. The result of the study was that CBG is more effective in treating inflammation than taking over-the-counter medicine. They also found while doing testing that CBG not only dramatically helps reduce inflammation but also has adverse effects on weight gain and can help prevent early signs of obesity. 

In the study, the patient suffered from chronic inflammation and knee pain due to severe arthritis in the knee. In all clinical trials, the CBG outperformed the anti-inflammatory effects of standard anti-inflammatory medicine such as Tylenol and hospital-grade medication. 

How CBG Relieves Inflammatory Pain: Final Thoughts 

CBG is the clear choice in treating inflammation, whether acute or chronic, simply because of the other health benefits associated with CBG.

CBG has many benefits that are still being discovered every day. The future of holistic medicine is looking extremely bright; as this research continues, USA Medical will deliver the best quality products to ensure our customers are happy and healthy.
