Please to be featured in an article on Real Simple regarding CBG.  Just like CBD, CBG is a cannabinoid found in both marijuana and hemp that has non-psychoactive properties: it won't make you "high" and won't make you sleepy.  CBG is usually in very low amounts of the plants, making it one of the reasons it is less studied than THC or CBD.  However, there is a lot of interest in this cannabinoid.  

Animal studies have shown that CBG might have a role in blood pressure regulation, pain modulation, and may have some anti-inflammatory properties.  CBG may be helpful in diseases like ulcerative colitis and Huntington's disease.
