2. Cannabigerol (CBG)
The medicinal effects of medical marijuana would not even be possible without CBG. CBG could be considered the original cannabinoid from which all the others like THC, CBD, CBC and all 66 others are made from. It is the stem cell of the hemp plant and the cause of a wide variety of benefits.
CBG can help to stop the uptake of GABA in the brain, this action has relaxing effects on the muscles and can reduce stress and anxiety in the individual.
3. Cannabichromene (CBC)
CBC is present in almost all hemp plants in some amounts and has powerful anti-anxiety benefits.
