CBG v.s. CBGa

what is the difference? 

CBG works by binding to both of the body’s cannabinoid receptors where it’s thought to play a role in enhancing pleasure and motivation, regulating appetite and sleep, as well as alleviating pain. CBGa, on the other hand, is known as the “mother of all cannabinoids” because it is the precursor cannabinoid that eventually develops into CBD or THC.
