While people know quite a bit about CBD, CBG is newer and has people asking a lot of questions. CBG stands for Cannabigerol, which is a newer Cannabinoid than Cannabidiol (CBD). Although they are different compounds, there are quite a few similarities between the two in how they are used.
CBG can be used in many different ways, including oils, creams, and gummies as well. CBG creams are one of the most popular ways to enjoy the benefits of the CBG compounds. As a cream, CBG gets absorbed through the pores, and then interacts with the cannabinoid system. It can help with pain relief on sore joints and muscles, is an anti-fungal, and helps with itchy skin, burns and blisters.
Most often people associate cannabis compounds with smoking, but that is actually now one of the least popular ways to consume / use these products when they’re being used for CBD or CBG. Most often now people will use them by consuming edibles, like gummies, or by topical usage like CBG creams. This is because the products are not used to get high, but rather for medical purposes. Especially when it comes to helping with pain and skin conditions, topical use is far superior to inhalation as it provides localized relief.
What Can CBG Help With?
CBG creams can be used to help treat a plethora of ailments. They can help with surface issues on the skin like rashes and even skin conditions like eczema, and can also help sub-dermally by providing pain relief in muscles and joints. All of these uses of CBG cream have been demonstrated through clinical studies, and researchers are still finding new uses as well. The CBG cream works so well to help with these issues because it is able to locally interact with the cannabinoid system directly through the skin. This happens via the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are located in your skin. These receptors of the cannabinoid system respond directly with CBG, which is why it is so effective for local relief.
CBG cream is likely to become a very popular topical treatment, and not just for specific uses like clearing rashes or conditions, but also just for general use. Just like CBD, CBG is a general anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant. These three properties mean that even just general use of the cream will result in better skin – fewer blemishes, reduced puffiness, and so much more.
