New studies are indicating that CBG may effectively help to combat Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a particularly resistant “superbug.” This quality could be comparable to prescription antibiotics used as a last resort, without the known side effects of these tricky antibacterial pharmaceuticals. While research is still being conducted on this vital subject, we recommend that our readers consider addressing their health over an extended period, by consistently choosing maintenance doses of antibacterial herbs, spices, and foods.
CBG vs. Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria
Two main types of bacteria are relevant to this article: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Gram-positives, like MRSA, have a single-layered, but sturdy membrane. The gram-negative bacteria have two membranes, leading to a more significant challenge in treatment and a higher risk to public health.
Cannabigerol truly shines when used against MRSA and other gram-positive bacteria. However, it does not have a compelling direct effect on gram-negative bacteria such as Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Despite this, using CBG and potentially other cannabinoids, in conjunction with pharmaceutical antibiotics, may help to break apart the additional membrane surrounding gram-negative bacteria effectively destroying these pathogens.
This multi-faceted approach supports the concept that a variety of natural antibacterial sources is the way to go. These minimal side-effect items can be purchased at the grocery store, wellness shops, and more. Garlic, which helps to combat both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, will take a unique approach when compared to, say, turmeric, which affects a particular selection of bacteria in specified ways. Perhaps including a variety of natural compounds in our daily consumption, including CBG and CBD, could enhance our overall well-being.
Regardless, we can definitively say that taking in natural foods and approved dietary ingredients can lead to improved microbial and bacterial balance in the body. Enjoy natural products for their incredible potential, but be sure to fuel your system with plenty of colorful fruits/veggies, exercise, outdoor adventures, and positivity.
