Why should I take care of my gut health?
More and more research is being done on the incredible complexity of the gut and its importance for our bodily processes. Numerous studies have been able to prove connections between gut health and general well-being. Many aspects of our modern lifestyle, such as stress, too little sleep, processed and sugary foods or even taking antibiotics, can put a strain on our intestinal flora and in turn cause us to struggle with a bloated belly, a feeling of fullness, but also impure skin and low energy.

Nuleaf Naturals Full spectrum CBG oil 15ml – learn more here!
CBG has shown to help managing different symptoms of digestive issues. There have been a few studies that show CBG can relieve intestinal inflammation. The researchers conducted the study on rats and found that inflammation in the intestines is controlled by the ECS. Inflammation is caused because of an overactive immune response so that the gut can be free of suspicious micro-organisms. CBG helps balance this out so that our intestinal lining is not destroyed.

Gut Feeling – Prebiotic explained
Prebiotics are foods (typically high-fiber foods) that act as food for human microflora.
Prebiotics are a type of plant fiber that feeds the good bacteria in our gut. Probiotics are foods and supplements that contain live strains of healthy bacteria and yeasts. Both prebiotics and probiotics are essential for gut health and can improve digestive issues
Prebiotics are types of indigestible fiber that are as critical to the health of your microbiome, and therefore the health of your body, as the microbes they feed. So, when tending to your gut, it’s important to give the beneficial bacteria residing there the prebiotics they need to flourish.
They promote the increase of friendly bacteria in the gut, help to maintain a healthy digestive system and can even boost your immune system. Prebiotic foods have also been known to support a healthy metabolism and maintain overall good health.

How CBG oil can support your gut health
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis.
CBG’s antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties mean it has the potential to improve gut health. CBG may also fight against the ‘bad’ bacteria that cause intestinal inflammation.
CBG has also been shown to have powerful antibacterial properties.
Cannabinoids like CBG, work naturally with the human body’s Endocannabinoid System to produce a wide variety of potential health benefits.
Supercharge Your Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) comprises three component parts: endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes. These work together to create homeostasis, or simply put, a state of balance within the body’s internal systems. The ECS interacts with numerous parts of the body, constantly making precise adjustments in order to maintain a consistent state of equilibrium.
Endocannabinoids bond with different cannabinoid receptors in both the central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as in immune cells — the two primary receptors being CB1 and CB2. Then, special enzymes go to work, helping to break down any already-used or excess endocannabinoids, further assisting in maintaining homeostasis.
Common benefits of CBG oil reported in customer reviews include:
- Pain relief (especially neuropathy pain)
- Overall boost in mood typically seen as a reduction in anxiety or depression (associated with improved sleep)
- Improved Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and generally gut health. Read more about IBS on our blog here!
