Cannabigerol (CBG)

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the Cannabis genus of plants. Cannabigerol is found in higher concentrations in hemp rather than in varieties of Cannabis cultivated for high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content and their corresponding psychoactive properties.[citation needed]

Cannabigerol has been found to act as a high affinity α2-adrenergic receptor agonist, moderate affinity 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, and low affinity CB1 receptor antagonist.[1] It also binds to the CB2 receptor, but whether it acts as an agonist or antagonist at this site is unknown.[1]

Charlotte’s Web Makes History in Colorado

Charlotte's Web Makes History

A New Mexico family elected to fly their infant daughter to Colorado in order to treat her for a rare form of epilepsy.  After multiple failed attempts by doctors to reduce the seizures, the family asked the hospital if they could use cannabis oil.  A few weeks passed, and with the continued failure of pharmacological drugs, approval was finally granted by hospital administration.  Doctors, with their hands tied, were unable to administer the cannabis oil.  The parents acquired Charlotte’s Web Cannabis Oil (Named after Charlotte Figi, who suffered from 300 seizures a day and is virtually seizure free today) and gave their infant daughter mother nature’s medicine.  Their daughter, who was having 15 seizures a day, has experienced a lessening of seizure activity.
