CBG feels uplifting and energizing but also calming and soothing, especially when taken with CBD
CBG works directly and indirectly with your endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Your ECS is a complex biological network of two receptor types, endocannabinoids, and enzymes. Each ECS component regulates core functions such as sleep, mood, stress, appetite, pain, inflammatory response, and immune response, bringing your body to a state of internal equilibrium, also known as homeostasis.
Like CBD, CBG has some affinity with your CB1 receptor but mainly acts as a competitive antagonist instead of an agonist. Receptor antagonism means it prevents THC and its variants from binding fully to CB1, thus reducing a euphoric high and potentially treating obesity and substance abuse.
