CBG for Anxiety & Depression: Does It Work?
According to research, CBG has the ability to:
Decreases anxiety: CBG has displayed strong anti-anxiety effects and a muscle-relaxing reaction, both of which are connected to the same nervous system. CBG has had an intensified effect on relieving symptoms of ADHD and elevating energy and focus, both of which have links to overall mental health.
Increases dopamine: Studies suggest that CBG strongly activates a2 adrenergic receptors and enhance the absorption of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid is an amino acid working as the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain), Meaning: that it can boost dopamine levels and induce a relaxing effect on the mind and body, which can help lessen stress, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and help increase focus and energy.
Increase serotonin: Studies show that CBG is a potent 5HT1A receptor antagonist. Meaning: it can block the receptor resulting in more serotonin levels in the brain.
According to a patient survey of CBG-predominant cannabis use (the first to document self-reported efficacy of CBG-predominant products), which included 127 CBG-predominant cannabis users, found that (51.2% of patients) reported use of CBG-predominant products solely for medical purposes, and (36.2%) reported use for medical and recreational purposes.
The 127 cannabis users who smoked CBG-dominant cannabis strains reported that it was most commonly used to treat anxiety (51.2% of users), depression (33.1%), chronic pain (40.9%), and insomnia or sleep difficulties (30.7%).

What is CBG?
CBG, medically known as Cannabigerol, is famous for its therapeutic benefits and antibacterial properties. It’s widely referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids because when cannabis plants start to grow, they produce CBGA, which is CBG in acidic form. As the cannabis plant matures, CBGA breaks down, forming other cannabinoids, mainly CBD and THC.
Both CBD and THC start as CBGA.
CBG became more accessible and affordable with the recent discovery of high-quality CBG predominant cannabis strains, such as Super Glue CBG.
Cannabinoid Receptors: How Do They Work With CBG?
CBG and other cannabinoids are processed in the body by something called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system consists of molecules and receptors that help keep us in balance.
Our body contains two primary cannabinoid receptors—CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are found in the nervous system and brain, and CB2 receptors are located in the immune system and other areas.
These plant-made cannabinoids interact naturally in our bodies; they behave similarly to endogenous (internal) cannabinoids to relay messages within the endocannabinoid system.
CBG binds with both cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 without activating them, while THC and CBD interact differently with them.
Potential CBG Effects & Benefits
Studies show that CBG has excellent therapeutic benefits, both mentally and physically, but what truly distinguishes it is the fact that it’s non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t get you high.
So you can enjoy its benefits during the day, doing your regular routine without worrying about being high.
Top 5 Known Benefits
Some of the possible benefits include but are not limited to:
- Reducing anxiety and managing stress.
- Relieving body aches and discomfort in general.
- Increase energy and focus.
- Treat inflammation.
- Help with eating disorders (an appetite stimulant).
CBG has been shown to have anxiolytic qualities. It provides muscle relaxation and increased dopamine that can contribute to decreased anxiety. It is also said to improve energy and focus, which is linked to a better overall feeling of well-being.
According to the first patient survey of CBG users, the self-reported therapeutic effects of CBG were: it helped treat anxiety (51.2%), it helped alleviate chronic pain (40.9%), depression (33.1%), and insomnia/disturbed sleep (30.7%).
CBG Side-Effects: Anything To Worry About?
Adverse effects of CBG are mild to rare. Most users didn’t report any side effects, while a minimal number reported mild symptoms such as dry mouth and dry eyes.
Tell Me The Difference Between CBD and CBG?
While CBD and CBG may look to have similar benefits, the way they interact with the body is different. CBG works on the receptors, while CBD helps to produce and regulate endocannabinoids.
Studies show that CBG works best when paired with CBD. When two cannabinoids are combined, they create a phenomenon called the entourage effect, where the cannabinoids work in synergy to enhance and elevate their benefits. The entourage effect is significantly present when CBD and CBG are together. That’s why most CBD products have CBG in them.
So a full or broad-spectrum product is the best way to go.
CBG Products: What Should I Look For?
Potency: means how many mg of cannabinoids are there per ml/g of product. You need to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth!
Ingredients: we all know that ingredients don’t lie, check and see if your product has quality, organic, and natural ingredients that are free of artificial flavors, GMO-free, and most of all is HEMP-DERIVED!
Credibility: think of brand transparency and integrity; do they have the right percentages? Do they publicize their lab reports showing that to be true? What about their money-back guarantee?
Price: if it’s too good to be true, it probably is! Just use this easy formula “the number of mg of cannabinoid in the product x the price per mg” currently, the price per mg of CBG is $ 0.14.

Can you Legally Buy CBG Products Across the US?
The 2018 Farm Bill federally legalized hemp and all its derivatives, which includes CBG.
As long as hemp-derived products contain less than 0.3% THC, they can be legally sold in brick-and-mortar stores and online.
If you live in a state where marijuana is legal for recreational use, some products may contain additional amounts of delta 8 or delta 9 THC. So always make sure to double-check the THC content of your product.
Can CBG Get You High?
While by itself it’s non-psychoactive, some full-spectrum products can produce an entourage effect that some claim to be a euphoric feeling.
If we look at the full-spectrum products, they contain a percentage of THC and CBD. The THC percentage may not be enough to get you high, depending on the product.
CBG’s ability to help with anxiety has been well reported by users and research. CBG-rich products can alleviate anxiety and increase energy and focus.
According to a user survey, most respondents reported a greater efficacy of CBG-predominant cannabis over conventional pharmacotherapy when it came to helping with anxiety, pain relief, depression, and increased energy and focus.
