Overview - Cannabigerolic Acid (CBG-a)

Description of Cannabigerolic Acid (CBG-a)

The phytocannabinoid (plant-based) Cannabigerolic-acid (CBGA) was discovered in 1965. It is the initial precursor to other phytocannabinoids. CBGA is present abundantly in the young plant but diminishes as it grows more mature and CBGA is converted to CBG.

CBGA is absorbed ~40 times better than cannabigerol (CBG), and no adverse effects have been noted (K. Amstutz et al., 2022)
