Better mood. Better focus. These are key things we want more of in our everyday lives.

If you read our post on the difference between CBD and CBG, you may know what CBG is on a surface level. 

This post intends to inform you -- to the best of our knowledge right now -- of CBG’s potential as a supporting agent in cognitive function. Or more specifically, as an Earthly compound that has shown great promise in mental clarity and focus.

CBG, or Cannabigerol, is a lesser-known, yet important, cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. While researchers are only beginning to uncover CBG’s benefits, we already know it is a key ingredient of what makes the hemp plant so amazing. Put plainly, it is the mother of all cannabinoids that all cannabinoids are created from.

According to a medical review by Dr. Joseph Rosado, MD, M.B.A, and Chief Medical Officer, “CBG stimulates brain cell growth, fights tumors, serves as an antibacterial, and fights insomnia.”

Because a large portion of society is on the hunt for natural supplements that improve focus, boost mood, and aid in quality sleep, this is a huge deal.

Zakah Life is the first company to introduce a naturally-occurring, TRUE full-spectrum CBG-rich oil to its product line. When taken daily, our full-spectrum hemp oil capsules work to support mood and focus, manage daily stress, assist with inflammation from exercise, and maintain homeostasis in the body. 

Zakah Life's exclusive patented dilution methodology and lab-tested CBG product have the potential to bring mental clarity and focus to the user. Something we can all get behind given the onslaught of COVID-19-related news, the upcoming election, and everything in between.

How Does CBG Work?

All external cannabinoids (like CBD, THC, and the near hundreds of others) interact with the internal cannabinoid receptors found within our bodies. Our body’s anandamide levels, in particular, may be most affected by CBG, which explains the mood-enhancing benefits.

Anandamide is a neurotransmitter and cannabinoid-receptor binding agent that functions as a signal messenger for CB receptors located in the body. Its Sanskrit name, “ananda,” translates to “bliss” or “joy,” indicating its properties as mood-enhancing. This is why it is referred to as the “bliss molecule.”

From the same medical review mentioned above, it was reported that CBG may have the power to increase our body’s anandamide levels, helping to regulate foundational, biological functions like memory, sleep, and appetite. 

Again, things that many individuals struggle with daily. Especially in the age of the coronavirus, when so many things are uncertain and unpredictable, and therefore, anxiety-inducing. 

In addition to helping regulate memory, sleep, and appetite, CBG is also noted to block serotonin receptors in the brain, suggesting it could be useful in treating depression or other similar mood disorders. 

And because this trusty compound acts on your central nervous system without producing a high (that’s from THC), its potential medical uses and benefits are exciting to scientists, researchers, and anyone looking to boost their mood, focus, and energy healthily.

CBG's Promising Potential

While we are in no way making any claims about what CBG can heal or help with as it pertains to a person’s physical or mental health, some studies (so far) indicate CBG may have higher efficacy in neuropathic pain than CBD. Different studies have linked CBG with antidepressant effects.

Because we are not medical doctors and our products have not been evaluated by the FDA, they therefore are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. 

Research on CBG’s medicinal properties is still in its preliminary stages, but the results (so far) have shown consistency in improving one’s overall health by stimulating appetite, protecting neurons, and soothing inflammation.

As we continue to uncover more benefits of CBG, we hope you stay safe and healthy. In the meantime, please give our CBG CAPSULES a try, and let us know what you think.
