PALM BEACH, Florida, July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Although cannabis is a complex plant with more than 400 chemical entities, the cannabis industry has — for the most part — remained fixated on two particular cannabinoids: THC and cannabidiol (CBD). But other cannabinoids are starting to emerge into the spotlight. According to The Journal Of Cannabinoid Medicine: "One of these so-called minor cannabinoids is cannabigerol (CBG), which is gaining attention for its proclaimed anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties. While CBG has yet to match the mainstream appeal of CBD, this cannabinoid may soon play a starring role in everyday consumer products as it quietly demonstrates a wide array of highly intriguing medicinal benefits." The pharmacological effects of CBG described in the scientific literature include: anti-fungal, anti-insect and anti-inflammatory activity; neuroprotective activity; stimulation of appetite and enhancement of the death process of cancer cell. Dr. Itzhak Kurek, CEO and co-founder of a Northern California biotech company that uses bioinformatics (a combination of biology, computer science, and mathematics, among other scientific disciplines) to improve medical cannabis… over the last few decades, scientists have left a paper trail of research that shows just how fruitful this relatively unknown cannabinoid could be." Mentioned in today's commentary include: Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB), Rapid Therapeutic Science Laboratories, Inc. (OTCPK: RTSL), Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: NEPT) (TSX: NEPT), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: OGI) (TSX: OGI), KushCo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: KSHB).
The article continued: "More research is needed to fully understand what CBG has to offer from a medicinal standpoint, but existing studies have already presented several reasons to be optimistic about the therapeutic potential of CBG. Antibacterial Properties: CBG has been identified as having remarkable antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. For instance, in a 2008 study published in the Journal of Natural Products, researchers found that CBG could be a potential treatment for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a type of staph infection that is highly resistant to certain antibiotics.
