Other Cannabinoids Than CBD: What Is CBG Oil?1 June 2021
We all know CBD, but what is CBG? CBG stands for cannabigerol, and like its famous cousin cannabidiol, this cannabinoid also comes from the hemp plant. In recent years, CBG has come under close scrutiny for its potential health benefits, just like its more famous relatives in the cannabinoid family. Since it’s a cannabinoid, CBG can work together with our endocannabinoid system, as well as with other cannabinoids like CBD. Because of this, CBG could have equally beneficial effects as CBD. Science keeps learning more about the implications this cannabinoid could have for us. That is why we have decided to develop our own top-grade Full Spectrum CBG Oil, with high concentrations of natural cannabigerol. Here, you’ll learn more about what CBG is, and what its potential effects on our health could be.
CBG Oil: Little Known, Big Potential
CBD is a celebrity: by now, many people know about its potential benefits for treating sleeping difficulties, anxiety, pain, and more. THC is an even more famous cannabinoid; it has quite a reputation, in fact. THC is the cannabinoid causing people to get high, but even THC is used for therapeutic purposes these days. It is used to treat conditions such as epilepsy and migraine, for instance.
These famous cannabinoids cousins can make CBG (or cannabigerol as it is officially called) seem like a minor player. The fact that an average hemp plant contains less than 1% CBG can make it seem less than impressive. Nonetheless, there is more to CBG than you might think at first glance. It is the first cannabinoid any hemp plant produces, making CBG the basis of all other cannabinoids. Without CBG, there would be no THC or CBD at all. And just to be clear: CBG will not make you high. Like CBD, it has no psychoactive properties.
What Is Full Spectrum CBG Oil?
CBG Oil naturally contains a high concentration of CBG. But what exactly does the addition of Full Spectrum CBG Oil mean? Full Spectrum means that the full, natural spectrum of cannabinoids is present in the CBG Oil. Because we use special cannabis plants for our CBG Oil, it effectively contains no THC, because the crops are cultivated in such a way that there are hardly any demonstrable values of this substance; certainly not enough to give a ‘high’ or psychoactive effect.
By processing the complete range of cannabinoids in the CBG Oil, you make the most of the entourage effect. This is an important factor determining the efficacy of CBG. CBG cooperates with many of the other substances found in the cannabis plant. We choose Full Spectrum CBG Oil to offer you the most comprehensive applicability of this natural substance. That makes Full Spectrum CBG Oil a natural choice!
What Is The Potential Of CBG?
Cannabigerol is a phytocannabinoid, setting it apart as a cannabinoid produced by plants: cannabis plants, that is. Our body needs cannabinoids to function properly. In fact, we even make our own cannabinoids; these are called endocannabinoids. Taking plant-based phytocannabinoids like CBD or CBG will trigger a response from your body similar to those produced by endocannabinoids. That is why these plant-based compounds cam help restore balance in your body.
You may think that CBG is very similar to CBD. Still, even the slightest difference in molecular structure can make two similar substances very different in their effects. The chemical structure of CBG does in fact differ significantly from that of CBD.
Studies into the effects of CBG conducted so far have mainly focused on animals. Another important thing to remember is that these trials concern high dosages of isolated CBG in animals. That means the conclusions don’t simply apply to humans. Nonetheless, some of the early results are cause for careful enthusiasm.
- It appears that CBG is able to bind to cell receptors in the endocannabinoid system. This raises expectations of CBG triggering direct responses in the body;
- CBG could also help protect nerve tissue;
- Studies conducted in rats between 2016 and 2017 seems to point at the capacity of CBG to stimulate appetite;
- CBG displays powerful antibacterial potential against infections and ‘superbugs’;;
- Cannabigerol may have similar anti-inflammatory properties as CBD, as studied by cannabinoid authority doctor B. Goldstein;
- Research conducted by the latter also hints at relaxing potential of CBG similar to that of CBD, as well as the capacity to reduce anxiety.
How To Use CBG
Like CBD, CBG is available in the form of oil products. However, unlike cannabidiol, cannabigerol is not yet widely available. Many other producers consider it too expensive and to complicated to manufacture. Fortunately, we have been able to cultivate a special variant of cannabis plants containing exceptionally high concentrations of CBG. That means our CBG Oil contains 5% active cannabigerol, while the rest of the cannabinoid spectrum remains present in the product. This is why the product is called Full Spectrum CBG Oil. As with our CBD Oil, you will not find noticeable concentrations of THC, while all other cannabinoids are allowed full room to maximise their combined effects.
Because of this full spectrum production process, CBG is present in full spectrum CBD products such as our Full Spectrum CBD Oil 5%. CBG is part of the normal cannabinoid profile of the hemp plant. That means that if you’re using our CBD, you’re getting all the benefits of CBG on top of the CBD goodness you’ve paid for. The difference between CBG and CBD supplements is in the concentrations of various cannabinoids.
Our full spectrum CBD products contain all the cannabinoids and other wholesome substances (such as terpenes, flavonoids, and antioxidants) that work together to support your health, including CBG . This combined effect is known as the entourage effect, in which the power of all individual ingredients adds up, making the whole more than the sum of its parts. Cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, and many others can cause greater effects when taken together, compared to using isolated cannabinoids on their own. That certainly makes it worth your while to always choose a high-quality full spectrum CBD product, like our CBD Oil.
