Anxiolytic Effects of CBGA
Hemp’s Mother Cannabinoid Presents Drug-Free Anxiety Management
Anxiety is the most common mood disorder worldwide.
It can be defined as a neurotic fear or uneasiness about the future or some other external factor. We’re also referring to chronic anxiety, a long term condition that causes significant disruption or discomfort in day-to-day life. However, Anxiety is simply part of the human experience. Those labeled “disordered” only experience anxiety to a greater degree than those who may be less sensitive to the perceived causes of anxiety. In any case, anxiety disorder constitutes a massive drain on human thought and energy all over the world.
The problem is so widespread and places such a severe burden on society that anxiety awareness should be common sense.
We should all take steps to understand and empathize with someone who suffers from chronic anxiety. More importantly, we should act to whatever extent we can to help them feel accepted and loved.
Fortunately we live in an age where the power of natural medicine is being brought to bear and made accessible to everyone.
How CBGA Fights Anxiety
CBGA is the original phytocannabinoid biosynthesized in the hemp plant from olivetolic acid and geranyl pyrophosphate; it is later converted into the other cannabinoid acids via enzymatic processes.
The anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) potential of CBGA largely overlaps with its antidepressant properties.
CBG has been shown to reduce the anxiety response in rats, and the presence of CBGA+ increases Anandamide which is the body’s natural “bliss” chemical.
In other words, CBGA makes you calm through natural processes and not risky psychotropic drugs.
CBGA reduces anxiety because it reduces inflammation and enhances whole body homeostasis via the endocannabinoid system. This dynamic is compounded by the Entourage Effect.

Cannabis science pioneer, Dr. Ethan Russo’s study on Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency 2 explores the role of CBGA’s anti-inflammatory effects in irritable bowel disease. Another study in Gastroenterology3 published similar results in an in vivo experiment.
These findings become more significant in conjunction with evidence linking gut inflammation to both anxiety 4 and depression 5.
CBGA reduces oxidative stress all over the body and especially in the gut, where inflammation is more likely to cause anxiety and other mood disorders.
CBGA May Be A Solution To Your Anxiety
Anxiety is a universal human experience that nevertheless takes a heavy toll on society at large. As conscious people, we should all do whatever we can to help counteract the disorder. Prescription drugs have limited efficacy and severe side effects.
We should all value independence from a less than equitable medical system.
The bottom of this issue is a question of global healing on the societal level – mind, body, and spirit.
Invest the energy to discover the natural, self-healing solutions that work.
There are many documented self-healing modalities but CBGA is especially compelling for several reasons.
Unlike other methods, CBGA is time and cost effective. Anyone can use CBGA extracts, even those with limited affinity to practices like high intensity exercise and meditation.
Thanks to the Entourage Effect, CBGA is especially suited for current cannabis users and those who already have good self-healing habits. Rising anxiety rates are a global issue that demands an answer that’s accessible to everyone and that makes CBGA hard to overlook.
