CBG – What is it?
Hemp contains hundreds of various types of organic substances. One group of these substances are phytonutrients, or cannabinoids. While CBD, or cannabidiol, is talked about a lot, there is a yet another important cannabinoid – CBG, or cannabigerol. What is CBG? It is a cannabinoid related to CBD and THC.
CBG oil is a product that contains higher concentrations of CBG than CBD oils. CBG is a still little-known cannabinoid and there is not as much research on it as on CBD or THC. Nevertheless, it is a substance worth talking about and it is good to know a little about it.
CBG – effects
Cannabigerol or CBG – How it works ? What properties does it have? What is its application? Does CBG help with anything? Does CBG have any effects? The answers to these questions are worth looking for in the research on this cannabinoid.
Cannabigerol, like other cannabinoids, affects the endocannabinoid system in our body. And it is through this system that CBG affects the rest of the human body. What properties does CBG have? If you are wondering what properties CBG has, then you can certainly find an answer to that question in the scientific research that is being carried out on the subject.
CBG – research on how it works:
- has antibacterial properties 
- participates in the process related to the synergistic effect of cannabinoids 
- supports the fight against Huntington’s disease 
- helps fight neurodegeneration 
- supports patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) 
These are just some of the studies that point to CBG’s positive effects in naturally supporting the body during various types of diseases.
Research on CBG
CBG research is not as extensive as research on other cannabinoids. CBG is also not as popular or well understood as CBD or THC. While these CBG studies that are available point to interesting conclusions, it’s important to remember that this is still not enough data to say with 100% certainty that cannabigerol is a safe substance with no negative effects related to long-term use. However, there is ongoing research on the anti-inflammatory properties of CBG, its neuroprotective effects or the alleviation of the side effects of chemotherapy.
CBG – How to use
It all depends on your individual needs and the manufacturer’s recommendations, as well as the product you have at hand. The use of CBG will depend, for instance, on the concentration of the product. The higher the concentration, the smaller portions you can consume to provide yourself with the same number of milligrams of CBG as in the case of other concentrations. It’s also a good idea to read the manufacturer’s recommendations. The suggested servings should be stated on the package. A yet another important thing to consider is whether your CBG oil is a full-spectrum product or just a CBG isolate. This also affects the way CBG should be used. And finally, it’s a good idea to listen to your body. Always start with small amounts of the supplement and then gradually build up your ideal serving of CBG!
CBG – Where to buy
What is most important when shopping for these types of products? CBG oil should be bought only from a proven, reliable manufacturer! It’s extremely important not to fall for poor quality hemp products and also not to consume products that may be untested and full of dangerous substances, such as pesticides, heavy metals, or mould and yeast!
When offering CBG, a store should also provide you with the relevant product tests regarding the production lot from which the given CBG oil is sourced. It’s good if the store also provides tests for the content of phytonutrients in the oil. CBG isn’t naturally found in large amounts in hemp, so it’s a good idea to find out the actual content of each cannabinoid and of course the one we’re most interested in, CBG, before buying.
CBG – price
What is the price of CBG oil? The price of CBG depends mainly on the quality of the product and the concentration. On the Internet you can find CBG oils at a price of about PLN 80.00, but also those that cost nearly PLN 1000.00! Why the differences? The reason for this is the concentration.
CBG vs. CBD – differences
CBG differs from CBD primarily in its chemical structure. These are two different cannabinoids. Importantly, both are non-psychoactive! What also sets them apart is their content in hemp. CBG is found in very small amounts in the plant compared to CBD, which is the main cannabinoid in true hemp.
CBG vs. THC
The first, most striking difference, between CBG and THC is that one of them is a psychoactive substance. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, while THC is known for its psychotropic properties. They also differ in their chemical structure and in the amounts in which they are found in hemp. CBG is a cannabinoid that can be found in the plant in trace amounts. THC, on the other hand, is contained in large amounts, for example, in cannabis.
