The world of minor cannabinoids is fascinating; each compound is responsible for a list of its own benefits and healing powers.
While CBD is one of the most popular cannabinoids in recreational and medical markets, it’s been proven that CBD works better under the “entourage effect” when paired with other minor cannabinoids like CBG.

CBG (cannabigerol) is a minor cannabinoid that naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. Plenty of research and studies have confirmed that CBG has incredibly beneficial properties like antibacterial, anticancer, and antidepressant. It is often considered the “mother of all cannabinoids” because CBG is frequently used to create other minor cannabinoids by using CBG in its acid form, cannabigerol acid (CBGA).
As mentioned earlier, the entourage effect occurs when administering a product containing more than one cannabinoid. Take CBD and CBG, for example; when dosed together in a strain or product, they work off each other synergistically to amplify each cannabinoid’s individual effects.
Since CBG and CBD are both antidepressants and can relieve stress and anxiety, expect those sensations to be emphasized when dosing a product that contains both cannabinoids. In fact, these two compounds are known to balance each other out by interacting with different parts of the body.
CBG is known to target our brain’s endocannabinoid receptors, and CBD kickstarts the creation of enzymes that produce the body’s natural endocannabinoids.
Finally, because CBD has pro-focus and concentration effects when paired with the insomnia-healing cannabinoid CBG, users often report feeling a sense of balance that keeps them motivated yet relaxed throughout the day.
