Cannabigerol is a novel, well-tolerated appetite stimulant in pre-satiated rats.

Anorexia and Cachexia Obesity

Key Findings

Here, we demonstrate for the first time that CBG elicits hyperphagia (excessive hunger), by reducing latency to feed and increasing meal frequency, without producing negative neuromotor side effects. Investigation of the therapeutic potential of CBG for conditions such as cachexia and other disorders of eating and body weight regulation is thus warranted.
