Description of Cannabigerol (CBG)
Cannabigerol was isolated, characterized, and synthetized by R. Mechoulan and Y. Gaoni in 1964. CBG is non-psychoactive. It is the central biosynthetic precursor to many cannabinoids. For that reason CBG is often referenced as "mother of all cannabinoids."
Geranylolivetol plus numerous other supplier-based synonyms.
IUPAC Name: 2-[(2E)-3,7-dimethylocta-2,6-dienyl]-5-pentylbenzene-1,3-diol
Molecular Formula: C21H32O2
Cannabigerol (CBG) Properties and Effects
- An inhibitor of voltage-gated sodium (Nav) channels (M. Ghovanloo et al., 2022)
- Non-pychoactive (R. Mechoulam et al., 1970)
- Muscle relaxant
- May be anti-proliferative in cases of prostate and colorectal cancer
- Antibacterial (MRSA)
- Appetite stimulant (in cases of anorexia, cachexia)
- Anti-parasitical (leishmania)
- Pre-clinical trials suggest potential benefits in treating neurological disorders such as Huntington's Disease.
Cannabigerol (CBG) Receptor Binding
Endocannabinoid system (ECS) and CBG:
Endocannabinoidome (eCBome) and CBG:
- TRPV1 (significant agonist)
- TRPA1 (significant agonist)
- TRPM8 [inhibitor (antagonist)]
- 5HT1A serotonin receptors (moderate inhibitor)
- Alpha-2-andrenergic-receptor sites (agonist)
- Full/strong agonist Ki ~1-9nM
- Moderate agonist Ki ~10-99nM
- Weak agonist Ki ~100-999nM
- Very weak agonist Ki ~1,000-up nM
(The reader is reminded that a smaller Ki is associated with the strongest effects.)
