What is CBG? This is one of the most popular questions on the web right now — regarding cannabis anyway. CBG, like CBD, is a phytocannabinoid in the hemp plant. Researchers believe there are more than 100 of them, and CBG ranks at the top in terms of its therapeutic potential.
Its full name is cannabigerol and it shares many of the same qualities as CBD. For instance, CBG is also non-intoxicating, non-addictive, and deemed generally safe for consumption.
Furthermore, cannabigerol is one of the first cannabinoids to be produced by the cannabis plant. It starts out as CBGA, its acid precursor, and as the hemp plant matures CBGA converts into CBG.
You won’t find many marijuana strains with a high concentration of CBG because they’re often bred to produce high levels of THC. However, many hemp strains are rich in CBG. And given the legal status of hemp in the United States, CBG products that derive from this plant are a lot more accessible.
The most popular CBG products out right now are CBG hemp flower and CBG oil. We’re going to explain what CBG hemp flower is and tell you where to buy it. For more information on CBG oil, check out our CBG oil page.
CBG Hemp Flower
The hemp plant has four major components — a stalk, seeds, leaves, and flowers. When you see a CBG or CBD product that says ‘whole-plant’ or ‘full-spectrum’ extract, it’s referring to all these pieces.
Also, some companies say “made from aerial parts.” That means the company uses all parts of the plant that grow above the ground. Each one of these components has specific qualities and benefits.
Regarding the hemp flower, this is where the largest concentration of CBG lives. Also, the small leaves that hug the sides of the flower called sugar leaves, also have high amounts of cannabigerol in them. This is why CBG hemp flower is popular among people who want a good, strong source of CBG, without any fluff.
Additionally, CBG flower has other important phytochemicals besides CBG. The hemp flower also contains terpenes, which provide the aroma, flavonoids, omega fatty acids, vitamins, trace minerals and more. All of these plant compounds work synergistically to promote what’s called the ‘entourage effect’.
The most common way to consume CBG hemp flower is to smoke it. But, that’s not the only way. You can also make homemade CBG butter or oil from the flower. Many people do this and then add the CBG oil to a skincare product or inside a salad dressing, or to make CBG edibles.
There are lots of exciting uses for CBG flower, see how creative you can get once you get your hands on some.
CBG can provide the body with therapeutic benefits because of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Our bodies have several systems, like the immune system, digestive system, skeletal system, etc.
When we take supplements like digestive enzymes, they can help improve the function of our digestive system. Similarly, when we consume cannabinoids like CBG, they have the potential to optimize the health of our endocannabinoid system.
If you’re interested to know how CBG interacts with the ECS from a scientific perspective, we’ll share those specifics with you now.
The ECS was first discovered by researchers in the early 1990s. Scientists found that its role is to maintain homeostasis, which is the state of internal balance. This system also is responsible for the health of the body’s physiological processes, like mood, sleep, appetite, memory, and more.
One of the primary pieces of the ECS are the cannabinoid receptors — CB1 and CB2. When you smoke CBG flower or consume it in an oil form, or another method, the properties of CBG bind to these two receptors. Essentially, the binding action helps activate the ECS. This activation strengthens the system and makes its job at maintaining homeostasis much easier.
Where Can You Buy CBG Flower?
You can buy CBG flower online, or from your local dispensary. When you want to buy CBG flower online, keep a few things in mind. First, see if the company mentions the source of its hemp. Also, look for third-party lab testing reports that verify the flower is free of pesticides, heavy metals, and other toxic substances. Lab reports also show the cannabinoid profile, so you’ll know exactly how much CBG and other cannabinoids you’re getting.
