CBG hemp flower is a type of hemp flower rich in Cannabigerol (CBG).
A new addition to the hemp space, CBG flower is an internationally sought-after hemp flower that allows users to enjoy the benefits of a minor, but essential cannabinoid.
Just like CBD flower, CBG flower is non-intoxicating and naturally contains very low levels of THC. Meaning, smoking or vaping CBG flower is not going to get you high and is completely safe to use by every adult.
– Minimal / No Side-Effects
– May Protect Against Colon Cancer
– Can Lower Glaucoma-Related Pressure
– May Reduce Tumor Growth
– Used to Spot-Treat Acne
What is CBG and Where Does it Come From?
CBG comes from hemp, doesn’t get you high, and may also provide wellness benefits – much like CBD cannabinoids.
Researchers describe CBG as a minor cannabinoid because cannabis plants produce smaller amounts of the substance compared to major cannabinoids like CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBG typically makes up less than one percent of the cannabis plant by weight.
Often referred to as a “mother cannabinoid,” CBG is the organic compound that CBD and several other cannabinoids originally started as. Inside cannabis plants, CBG is in its cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) form and acts as an elementary unit to several other cannabinoids.
Difference between CBG & CBD
Slight molecular differences between the two substances result in significantly different CBD and CBG effects.
Research indicates that CBD molecules can partially bind to CB1 receptors – cannabinoid connectors located in the brain and that make up half of the endocannabinoid system – which may be the primary reason why it works against THC effects.
By contrast, CBD appears to have a lower affinity, but can still affect these receptors in another way. Instead of binding with the receptors, they may instead block them from interacting with other substances.
