Cannabigerol: The Medical Potential of the Weed Ingredient
Cannabigerol is a chemical found in the cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike some of the other ingredients, cbg does not affect thinking and has many possible medical applications such as for neurologic disorders, cholesterol levels, or appetite stimulation. Humans have not been studied with cbg yet but animal studies show cbg to be safe and effective. In these same animal studies, cbg was shown to be able to penetrate the blood brain barrier, an obstacle that many other cannabis components cannot hurdle. The body metabolizes cbg into another cannabinoid called CBC. CBC is another well researched compound that has been shown to have anti-cancer properties. Cannabigerol as a component of cannabis could be very helpful for certain ailments and the fact that it may be produced in one’s own backyard could make it an even more attractive alternative.
Liferesearchco Cannabis is one of the most well researched plants in history and is rich in components such as terpenes, cannabinoids, chlorophyll, alkaloids, and more. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds found in cannabis that affect the human body. The two main cannabinoids are CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). While these two chemicals have been the most studied, there are over 100 different cannabinoids found within marijuana. Each can have different effects on the body, both therapeutic and psychoactive.
Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. The earliest written document recorded by humans using cannabis dates back to 15th-13th century BC China. Cannabis was considered a “superior” medicine back then compared to other plants. In the 20th Century, cannabis (or more accurately, extracts from cannabis) was made illegal in the United States due to political reasons, cultural prejudices, and severe stigmatization of the drug. Many researchers now believe that this was a mistake and that cannabis should be looked at again for medical purposes, especially now that science has advanced to the point where marijuana can be used precisely.
Cannabigerol is a component of cannabis that has not been as well researched as other parts of the cannabinoid family. It also does not affect mind function like CBD or THC do, which makes it different from many other compounds found in marijuana. While many other cannabinoids decrease the appetite of a person, CBC can stimulate the appetite. This is where it may have some use in treating obesity. It has also been shown to increase cholesterol levels in mice, which has potential applications to treat cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis.
These Topicals are Highly Effective for Chronic Pain Relief!

It also contains comfrey, St. John’s wort and arnica to help relieve discomfort.

Actually, what you have done is the right thing for your problem. I always recommend against using topical agents on the sacrum, unless you have been diagnosed by a good practitioner as suffering from a mild herniated disc or slipped disc like low back pain or sciatica. (If you are trying to reduce inflammation in the sacral area, you should be applying a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent such as ibuprofen to the sacrum.) You will see more improvement with rest and exercise than with topical agents.
For chronic pain, you need to target the source. Find a practitioner with experience and knowledge of the underlying cause of your pain. It is not just one thing.
You mention your use of topical agents on the right side. The right side is governed by the liver, so liver problems may be causing this problem. If you have a liver problem, the topical agent may not be the best one for you. You might do better with an herbal liver detox (such as Milk Thistle) or an herbal liver supplement.
I recommend applying Full Spectrum CBG Rosin Salve to the right side of the spine but not directly on blisters. It is too rich for that, and it will likely cause a burning sensation. A well formulated topical formula may help, but if it is formulated for pain, it should be non-steroidal, like Ester-C or oral hydrocodone. The latter works well for nerve pain that is not nociceptive. Topical meloxicam, which is a kind of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, works well for that purpose.
