CBG in Skincare

What is CBG and how will it affect the skincare industry? 

Most people have heard of or tried CBD or THC products; a lesser-known but equally important 

cannabinoid is gaining availability in products called cannabigerol (CBG). CBG is somewhat of a mother cannabinoid in that it is first produced by hemp plants and becomes THC, CBD, and CBC once broken down by plant enzymes. 

 CBG is non-psychoactive and, much like CBD, acts on receptor sites located in each skill cell and hair follicle once it penetrates the epidermis. Once it has penetrated the basal and subcutaneous layers of the epidermis it can help with inflammation, reducing blemishes, purifies pores, balances sebum (oil) production, and assists with cellular turnover. 

“This cannabinoid will play an important role in the formulation of new products from skin serums, lotions, masks, toners, and massage oils.”
