CBG

What Is CBG Cannabigerol (CBG) is the decarboxylated phytocannabinoid of CBGa found in heated cannabis. It is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic “stem cell” phytocannabinoid, and alongside its precursor CBGa was discovered in 1964. During cannabis’ growth, the majority of CBG is converted into other phytocannabinoids, and most strains rarely have any more than 1% of its […]

CBGa

What Is CBGa Cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic acidic precursor to CBG found in raw cannabis. Called the mother of all phytocannabinoids, it is the primary phytocannabinoid in carboxylated cannabis and is considered the stem cell phytocannabinoid, first discovered in 1964 and later isolated and synthesized in 1975. Synthases, natural enzymes in cannabis, […]

Phytocannabinoids

Phytocannabinoids in the Plant To date, over 113 phytocannabinoids have been identified within the cannabis plant, the only known plant to produce phytocannabinoids in such large amounts. These phytocannabinoids can rarely form with a 3 carbon ring opposed to a 5 carbon ring, making them propyl phytocannabinoids. THC and CBD are the two most common […]

Serotonergic System

Serotonin System and its Function The serotonin system is a major neuronal system that plays a role in various mental functions, including the regulation of anxiety, mood, cognition, perception and pain. Serotonin works by binding to 5-HT receptors, of which 14 variants have been identified, though full understanding of what each one does has not […]

Dopaminergic System

The Dopaminergic System The reinforcement and reward models of drug addiction have suggested that dopamine neurotransmission plays a key role in the motivation to use drugs. Dopamine appears to be at least partially responsible for the stimulus-reward association that is involved in addiction, and abnormal dopamine levels have even been correlated with schizophrenic and psychotic […]

Endocannabinoid System

Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of specialized fatty acid-based lipid signaling chemicals, their receptors, and the metabolic enzymes that produce and break them down. It was named after the plant that led to its discovery, cannabis, and although detected in the early 1980s, its existence wasn’t confirmed until 1992 by a group of […]
