There’s some overlap but also some unique attributes to CBG that stand out. To know whether you like it more, less, or the same as CBD flower — you’ll have to try some for yourself!

Appearance, labeling & first impressions
The CBG buds come in an airtight bag and the big label on the front lets you know it’s CBG flower from Dr. Ganja. It’s clear as day, which I appreciate from any product. The front label also tells you this hemp flower was grown in the USA and contains less than 0.3% THC.
When you flip the bag over, you get even more details. It shows the percentage of CBGa (which turns into CBG upon heat/combustion), the percentage of CBG and terpenes. It also has a QR code that you can scan with your phone, which takes you to the lab report page on Dr.Ganja’s website. From there, you search for the CBG flower and scan the lab results.
As for the appearance of the buds, I could tell they were hand-trimmed with a lot of care. As the name of the strain suggests (The White), these buds were adorned in crystals, and the blondish-orange hairs and light green leaves brighten them up even more.
Aroma & Taste
The smell upon opening the bag was a delight for my nostrils. It has a fresh floral smell, with just the right amount of sweetness and a hint of clove. Based on the terpene profile this made total sense, especially with the amounts of caryophyllene and bisabolol present.
Sadly, I did not use a dry herb vaporizer to enjoy these beautiful nugs, I smoked them from a joint. The combustion process of lighting up the joint takes away a good amount of the flavors. However, from other reviews on this flower, it appears the flavor is subtle and fresh, with some woody notes.
Testing process and experience
Before writing this review, I smoked the CBG flower on three different occasions. Once in the late evening, and twice in the mid-afternoon. As mentioned earlier, I smoked these using a pre-rolled joint. And each time, I took around 6 to 8 hits. Each one was very smooth. I took a few really big pulls just to test the “smoothness factor” and each time the draw was nice. No harshness or cough. That was a welcomed treat.
As for the effects, they didn’t make me feel sleepy, just really relaxed. My level of alertness also increased. When I smoked this right before bed, I thought it would make me super tired. After all, it was my bedtime and I was already feeling drained from the day.
But instead of giving me the sedation I’ve felt with certain CBD strains, my eyes became clear and focused. Not in a caffeinated type of way though. I felt very present and aware. It was a nice feeling without being extreme. I would describe the sensations in my body the same way. A gentle, welcomed relaxation compared to a deep, knock me out relaxation.
I gotta say, I’m a fan and can definitely notice the difference between CBG and CBD strains. They’re unique from each other, but have lots of benefits.
Final verdict: Aromatic & smooth smoke that offers pure relaxation
This hemp flower reminds me why I enjoy smoking. That tantalizing smell upon opening the bag, the ease, and smoothness of taking a hit. And most of all, the fast-acting effects that put your mind at ease and restore harmony in your body.
Basically, Dr.Ganja’s CBG Hemp Flower has all the good stuff that makes you appreciate the hell out of plant medicine.
