What is CBG

Table of Contents


NOTE– Prime Spectrum has been informed by HYPRA that we are trying to sell or misguide the public into thinking that CBD is a medicine. We have never stated it was or is. The Government continues to mislead the public and try to sell off this industry to Pharma. Ireland is the biggest Pharmaceutical Hub in the EU and one of the most corrupt nations when it comes to stealing from its people. Everything from our roads, national lottery, electricity, to our oil and gas has, been sold to private cooperation’s.

We have been hounded by HYPRA to change words and or sentences because they CLAIM we are trying to mislead the people of Ireland. How much further from reality could this be.

Like most things in life nowadays, “It is for your protection” as clearly people have lost the capability to think for themselves.

We get asked questions about certain items and we do our best to reply. The opinions in this blog and all our blogs are just that, opinions based on experience and the industry. HYPRA, it seems, want to make sure they aid shutting down companies like mine down under the disguise of “Public Protection” . It is an endless fight between FSAI , HYPRA and the corrupt to try and earn an honest living.

Please ignore the coincidence that blogs like these get viewed by tens of millions of people all around the world and they are found to be informative.

CBD is a Food Supplement used by millions of people around the world for personal reasons. Any benefits you may get from CBD are merely coincidence or placebo………………………………………………

HYPRA advices that you should stick to Pharmaceutical Medication that is approved by them and consult your doctor. After all, Pharmaceutical companies have your best interests at heart and nothing that comes from nature is of use. ………………………

If you are interested in the CBD or Cannabis Industry you will be well aware of the cannabinoid CBD or Cannabidiol. Due to the nature of the current poor laws and legislations, CBD and Cannabis have not been researched heavily. However, this is changing and as time goes on we don’t have to rely on anecdotal evidence as much. CBG has been whispered about for a good while now and some people are referring to it as being better than CBD. Some of the CBD products on the markets are spin-offs and are just niched down to make other forms of cash flow. My first thoughts are that CBG is the same thing here.


CBG stands for Cannabigerol and just like CBD and THC, it is one of 120 odd cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. THC is by far the most well-known cannabinoid as it has a psychoactive effect on the brain. CBD and CBG do not have this effect on the brain. People are looking towards CBG as it is the foundation molecule that other cannabinoids. for example, CBD and THC are created from CBG. Cannabigerol is converted into the other cannabinoids during its growth and at the end of the process, there is about 1% of the CBG left in the plant.

A Major or Minor Cannabinoid?

Due to the fact that after the conversions there is only 1% of CBG left in the plant, CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid by many. Others will argue that because it is the first Cannabinoid where other cannabinoids come from it is more than minor. Many have placed forward the argument that because the acidic form of CBG,  which is CBGA (CBG with an extra carboxyl group “A” ) it should be considered much more. CBGA is at its highest concentrations when the cannabis plant is flowering. Enzymes start to work as the plant grows and the CBGA is then converted to CBDA etc.


If you find it hard to find viable research on CBD you will really struggle to find it on CBG. As stated above there is only 1% left of this cannabinoid when the plant has matured. As a result of this breeders are trying to genetically manipulate this with crossbreeding. Prime Spectrum has read that others are looking for the best time to extract the CBG when it is at its highest in the plant during the flowering process.

Decide For Yourself

They have carried out very little research on this cannabinoid CBG. More so animals than humans. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system however they are not all equal. Each mammal is unique in its genetic makeup and the locations of the receptors in conjunction with the volume in the body are also unique. CBD works well for some and not for others due to this and other reasons. In my opinion, the same will be said for CBG and if CBD does not work then maybe CBG will and vis versa. The foundations will remain the same as you need to find a good supplier/product and find a therapeutic dose that works for you.

Potential Benefits of CBG?

Many of the following benefits are also associated with CBD which leads me back to the above point about our uniqueness, therapeutic dose, and product. It also needs to be noted that there are even fewer studies on CBG. The following reports are not proof that CBG or CBD for that matter will treat the following. They are reported as showing promise and until there are affective clinical trials they are unfounded.

  • Inflammatory bowel disease and colitis – In 2013 CBG was tested on rats. The study is HERE.
  • Huntington’s and neurodegenerative diseases- A 2015 study on mice. This study can be found HERE. 
  • A Cancer Fighter- A 2016 study looked at this in conjunction with other first-line treatments it helped with the reduction of tumour growth. You can find this HERE. A side effect of some of these treatments is the loss of appetite and a study shown HERE suggested that this was improved.

These are just opinions and not medical advice of any kind. We are complying with HYPRA who want to ensure that you understand that CBD is not a medicine and only Pharmaceutical Medicine are as they have been approved by HYPRA.


For now, I have no doubt that CBG, just like CBD is important for our health. I am happy to see that CBG (  Just like CBD ) is being studied more and more. The right people are starting to fall into the group that many of us are already in. CBD, Cannabis, and CBG could have a massive positive impact on our health and we should be looking to natural and nature more.
