Learn more about major & minor cannabinoids
There are approximately 150 identified cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. These cannabinoids are broken into categories of ‘Minor’ or ‘Major’. Major cannabinoids, like THC and CBD are widely know and have been studied for some time. Conversely, minor cannabinoids are relatively new, just being studied and are present in plants in low levels, usually less than 1%.
CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid. Because it is a precursor from which all other cannabinoids are synthesized, CBG is often referred to as the “mother” or “stem cell” of cannabinoids. CBG is studied for its many properties, including its ability to help calm inflammation and help kill bacteria. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid.

Learn more about CBG's effects on the skin
Our bodies contain an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which has receptors CB1 and CB2. In the skin the purpose of this system is to help maintain healthy skin function. CBG interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Once CBG enters the epidermis (skin), it penetrates to the basal and subcutaneous layers where it helps calm inflammation, reduces blemishes, purifies pores, balances sebum (oil) production and assists with cellular turnover.
