The product contains a unique assortment of hemp’s phytocannabinoids, plus terpenes, flavonoids, and other valuable hemp compounds. The oil is rich in CBD and other naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids (including e.g. CBC – cannabichromene, CBN – Cannabinol, CBG – cannabigerol, Caryophyllene oxide).
Storage instruction: Store in a cool, dry, dark place and avoid heat, light and humidity. Keep out of reach of small children.
*Supercritical CO2 extraction (SCE) is an innovative process and a type of supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) that allows extraction of cannabinoids without using toxic, flammable, or reactive solvents (e.g: methanol, ethanol, chloroform, butane, or hexane, which are still currently used extract process in other). The unique property of supercritical CO2 allows it to acts as a solvent and extract the full range of cannabinoids, vitamins, and terpenes from hemp plants in a single operation. Supercritical CO2 is not reactive, thus does not react with the extracted compounds, preserving them, and avoid introducing unwanted compounds . CO2 is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use in food preparation.
In a 2015 study on animal models of Huntington’s disease, CBG was found to be “extremely active as a neuroprotectant.” Treatment with CBG improved movement and recovery in mice with Huntington’s and protected neurons from degeneration. CBG also showed highly potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
In a few studies, CBG & its synthetic analogue has even been shown to promote neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells. Together with CBG, CBD “induced a substantial increase in net neurogenesis by a CB1 receptor-dependent mechanism (Wolf et al., 2010). “
CBG for the Brain
CBG stands for cannabigerol – a cannabinoid compound currently being studied for its potential pharmacological properties. CBG is the precursor to CBD, CBC, and THC. It’s sometimes referred to as the stem cell – mother of cannabinoids. What does this mean? “CBGA (the acidic, inactive form of CBG) changes, is broken down, and becomes the base molecule that other cannabinoids form from,” including THC, CBD, and CBC.
CBG can affect the body by increasing anandamide levels. Anandamide is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid that helps regulate many biological functions, including appetite, sleep and memory. Like THC, anandamide acts on CB1 and CB2 receptors to produce its effects.
When it comes to brain chemistry this cannabinoid does more than respond to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. This cannabinoid can also inhibit the uptake of GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), a brain chemical that regulates the activity of neurons. When GABA is inhibited it can reduce anxiety and muscle tension. The effect of CBG on GABA uptake was found to be greater than both THC and CBD in one study. Pharmacologically, GABA uptake inhibitors are already used to treat anxiety.
