CBG vs CBD

What is CBG Used For?


CBG is a cannabinoid found in hemp plants that has been a recent topic of research & discussion due to its similarities to CBD. Using an oil tincture that contains high levels of CBG is a great way to give your endocannabinoid system that extra push when your regular CBD intake isn’t giving you enough relief.

First of all, what is CBG?

CBG stands for cannabigerol. It’s a cannabinoid expressed in hemp plants that is similar to CBD. But it’s less widely known and thus CBG-rich strains are harder to come by & more rarely grown. CBG is, however, becoming more and more popular as more research is conducted to understand it’s true benefits.

How will CBG make me feel? Will it get me high?

CBG is a non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating cannabinoid (just like CBD). This means that smoking flowers with high CBG levels or using other products infused with CBG will not get you high. But CBG does react with both CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors in the body, just like CBD. So researchers are hopeful that it could have similar therapeutic impacts when used in similar ways to CBD.

Is CBG better than CBD? What’s the difference?

CBG and CBD are two separate cannabinoids, which means they are similar in some ways and different in others. A good way to think about cannabinoids in this sense is to compare them to citrus fruits.

Think of cannabinoids like you think of citrus!

Take oranges, for example. Rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamins B1 & B2, high in calories & carbs, etc. The orange is a delicious fruit that comes with loads of nutritional benefits. So, yes, oranges are great. But so are lemons! Since when do you have decide on one? Adding lemons to your diet will assist your nutrition in ways that oranges will not. Why not have an orange when you feel like it, and have a nice glass of lemon water when you feel like it?

Each fruit comes with it’s own unique benefits; just like cannabinoids

Lemons naturally have more fiber & protein than oranges. Freshly squeezed lemon juice also has more vitamin C than orange juice. And similarly, limes come with their own unique benefits. Cannabinoids are no different, they all have their similarities as well as their differences.

So why should I use CBG oil?

We recommend using CBG oil as an addition to your existing CBD regimen. It’s a great “as-needed” product, for days when your typical daily CBD serving is just not cutting it. For those days when you could use juuust a little more relief.

Good for those with severe endocannabinoid deficiency

We also recommend CBG oil for those that may have a more severe endocannabinoid deficiency. Because our CBG oil tincture is very concentrated with such a high level of CBG, you won’t experience any lag or dullness by combining this tincture with your normal daily dose of CBD. Instead, it will help you achieve that balance and stability that you are ultimately striving for.
