Can you combine CBG Oil and CBD Oil?14 November 2022
Information on the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids extracted from the hemp plant, such as CBD Oil and CBG Oil, is becoming increasingly complex. Many products are proposed to treat an array of symptoms and it is sometimes difficult to determine which cannabinoid to choose and in which form. Some research is being done on the complementary medicinal properties of CBD (cannabidiol) and CBG (cannabigerol) and whether combining these two cannabinoids is a good idea. Read this blog to learn about the benefits of CBD and CBG Oil used together or separately.
The benefits of CBD and CBG phytocannabinoids
Of these many cannabinoids, CBD (cannabinol) and CBG (cannabigerol) are particularly interesting. They are highly sought-after because they are not psychoactive, like THC derived from cannabis (which causes a ‘high’ but is nevertheless used for medicinal purposes. Non-psychoactive means that by taking CBD and/or CBG oil you will not feel any change in consciousness, no matter how much you ingest. You will not be ‘high’ or ‘stoned’ and in case of a drug or doping test, you will not appear to be under the toxic influence of a drug.
This particularity has allowed the European legalization of CBD as well as its cultivation in abundance throughout the world. And many patients can now benefit from its vast therapeutic potential. Research on CBD is indeed greatly facilitated and the World Health Organization has even declared its daily and long-term use safe.
CBG: the “new” cannabinoid with great potential
Even if CBD is on sale everywhere in various forms, CBG is on the other hand still rather little distributed, and research is still rare. Discovered in 1964, CBG was put aside because of its minimal quantity (1%) in the mature plant and consequently, its difficulty of extraction. However, the rich properties of CBG to fight against stress and insomnia, its antibacterial capacities, and its potential to stimulate the appetite, among other things, attract the attention of scientists, and studies are in progress.
CBG is not just any cannabinoid, it is distinguished by the fact that it is at the origin of the production of CBD and THC, and other cannabinoids in the hemp plant. Precursor of all the cannabinoids it is present especially at the beginning of the growth in the seedling before breaking down to generate CBD and THC, among other cannabinoids. Because of this particularity, cannabigerol before its decomposition has all the properties of all the cannabinoids but it does not necessarily act in the same way. Its interaction with the receptors of our body’s endocannabinoid system (ESC) is different, complementary, or sometimes more powerful than its counterpart CBD.
Are CBG and CBD Oil an effective combination?
Natural medicine is booming as evidenced by the many CBD supplements and nutritional products of all kinds that are being marketed to bring ever greater well-being. Used in prevention for optimal health but also to alleviate the symptoms of many health problems, cannabinoids are perhaps on the way to being considered as full-fledged remedies to cure certain diseases. In some areas, conventional medicine has its limits, and the side effects of allopathic drugs are pushing more and more patients to turn to the benefits of full spectrum CBD oil and CBD tablets.
The advantage of the entourage effect
One of the essential characteristics of cannabinoids and terpenes is the entourage effect. When CBD and CBG interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, they act in different ways and are therefore complementary. But in addition to this beneficial harmony, their effects reinforce each other. This means that CBD can become even more powerful when used with CBG oil than used alone, and vice versa. For this reason, the potential medicinal benefits of CBD oil and CBG oil combined are very promising in terms of effectiveness in treating stress-related pathologies, supporting the immune system or fighting inflammation.
Full spectrum supplements
Both our CBD Oil and CBG Oil are full-spectrum supplements that contain the full range of cannabinoids found in hemp plants. This opens up multiple entourage effect possibilities in both supplements when taken alone. In fact, as Full Spectrum CBD Oil already contains some CBG, and Full Spectrum CBG Oil contains some CBD as well, combining these two supplements only adds to the potential that the entourage effect offers.
How do CBD and CBG Oil balance each other?
When consumed together, full spectrum CBD oil and full spectrum CBG oil have a complementary action on the endocannabinoid system. The stimulating properties of CBD are balanced by the powerful relaxing effect of CBG to promote optimal homeostasis. While each person is different and reacts differently to the effects of CBD and CBG, it seems increasingly clear that CBG has more potency on neurological and mental symptoms such as depression while CBD is more indicated for bodily well-being and physical symptoms.
Can you use CBD and CBG Oil together?
It turns out that the properties of CBG and CBD can complement each other. This makes combining both cannabinoids an attractive option for many symptoms and conditions. Perhaps you have been a CBD enthusiast for many years like many people, and you are wondering how to introduce CBG oil into your wellness program without upsetting your body with too high a dose of cannabinoids. Everyone reacts differently to cannabinoids, and it depends on the desired effect. It is generally recommended to take CBD in the morning and during the day for its energizing and soothing qualities that allow you to accomplish all your daily tasks with maximum concentration and to have the energy to do so. In addition, the many supplements in the SupMedi nutrition line are easy to take to the office, school or gym and easily complement the CBD oil and CBD tablets.
CBG oil is recommended to be taken in the evening, a few sublingual drops will allow you to relax deeply in the evening and then slip into a restful sleep for the whole night.
The dosage of CBD and CBG
The few studies on CBG do not yet allow to determine with scientific precision how to take it in combination with CBD and especially what is the recommended dose. About CBD, although this famous cannabinoid is more known and its effects are confirmed by numerous research, the dosage is still a very personal matter. The side effects of CBD are almost non-existent or without gravity but sometimes a dose too strong at the beginning can “startle” your body and cause minor temporary discomfort. It is indeed essential to accustom your body to the sometimes muscular although natural intervention of cannabinoids. It is necessary to test, to go progressively, and to increase the dosage until you obtain the ideal dosage for you, according to your therapeutic needs, your physiology, and your lifestyle.
