Canopy Growth presents toxicity data of cannabigerol in C. elegans
Canopy Growth Corporation's Vice President of Human & Animal Research,
Dr. Marcel Bonn-Miller is giving a talk about the long-term effects of cannabigerol (CBG) in mice and nematodes at the CannX Medical Cannabis Conference.
Similar to CBD, CBG is a phytocannabinoid, with an increasing presence in the worldwide ‘cannabis’ marketplace. Despite the growing pre-clinical literature, no formal toxicity studies had been carried out using CBG
before this study, which includes data from NemaLife's in vivo toxicity platform.
