Often ignored, CBG is the precursor for the cannabinolic compounds. In the trichome it is rapidly chemically transformed into THC, CBD and CBC. Once this precursor compound is created and moved into the secretory reservoir of the trichome the precursor it is never found in high concentrations in the finished weed. Interestingly this critical precursor has medical applications for treating glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and skin diseases. In fact, it is rarely found in the finished sativa or indica cannabis plants but it is found in high amounts in certain strains of industrial hemp that carry a genetic mutation that down regulates the production of CBD thereby encouraging the accumulation of CBG.Read More
