What is CBG Oil?
In its natural form, CBG is bound up in the hemp plant. While there are ways to use the CBG found in the plant, such as smoking or cooking with the material, those aren’t attractive options to many people. In its pure, isolated form, CBG is a powdery substance. However, CBG isolate powder lacks other health-supporting cannabinoids and terpenes, and most especially loses out on the “entourage effect.” One way to produce CBG Oil is to reconstitute the oil from CBG isolate and a carrier oil, with the option to add in other cannabinoids and terpenes to recreate the entourage effect. CBG Oil can also be produced from the aerial parts of CBG-dominant hemp strains, which naturally contain other cannabinoids (such as CBD) and terpenes found in the plant. Our CBG Oil is enhanced with our proprietary nanotechnology process, which shatters microscopic particles in the hemp oil apart and increases the purity and potency of the CBG locked up inside.
What Are the Benefits of CBG oil?
CBG has more benefits than we can list here, so we definitely recommend Googling for the most up-to-date research. The CBG cannabinoid is known particularly for its support of the digestive system and for the almost coffee-like energy and focus it gives. It’s also known for supporting healthy skin, and like CBD, CBG’s effects may also help manage everyday stress and maintain a positive mood.
How Does CBG Oil Make You Feel?
While CBG oil is not a stimulant, it does give a feeling of energy and focus that is similar to the effects of coffee. Users report being able to focus on one task for longer periods of time, with increased levels of productivity. A common use of CBG is as a pick-me-up which has a much more controllable serving size than coffee thanks to the use of a precise dropper. Overall, CBG effects on the perceptual level are more of an “upper” than a “downer.” CBG can also help your digestive system continue to feel like it’s functioning properly, as many of the cannabinoid receptors CBG interacts with are located in the digestive system. In addition, many users report mood support from consistent CBG usage.
What is the Difference Between CBD and CBG?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabigerol (CBG) are both cannabinoids found naturally in the hemp plant. They are produced at different stages of the plant’s life. As the young hemp plant grows, it begins by producing CBGA, or cannabigerolic acid, which is the precursor to all cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The process continues as CBGA is then converted via enzymes, heat, and UV light into THCA, CBDA, and CBCA. Each of these precursors undergoes chemical changes to become (respectively) THC, CBD, and CBC. From the CBGA that is left over after this process, a small amount becomes CBG. So while both CBD and CBG start out as CBGA, each cannabinoid is formed at a different stage of the hemp plant’s lifecycle.
