Four Important Questions About CBG Answered

Of all the cannabinoids, CBD is the most popular one. CBD and CBG are very similar as they act on the endocannabinoid system. They are both nonpsychoactive, but one is more abundant than the other. A lot seems to be known about CBD but let’s learn more about CBG.

What is CBG?

CBG (cannabigerol) is a cannabinoid found in a cannabis plant. Often, it is referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids because other cannabinoids come from cannabigerol acid. It is present in tiny amounts. In most strains, there is only 1% of CBG. It is, therefore, a scarce product. However, its popularity is growing fast due to its potential benefits.

How Is CBG Made?

Younger plants produce more CBG than fully developed plants; hence mostly CBG comes from young cannabis plants. Other strains such as Jack Frost CBG, Super Glue CBG, and White CBG also have higher CBG content.

These strains are specially cultivated to produce CBG. Cannabis growers are experimenting with cross-breeding and genetic manipulation to help produce more CBG.

How to Use CBG?

Primarily, CBG is used as an oil, but it can also be used as a soft gel. You get to enjoy the benefits of BCG whether you use it as broad spectrum CBG soft gels or oils. Broad-spectrum CBG contains all the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant except THC. The broad spectrum soft gel or oil allows you to enjoy the entourage effect, which results from using all the cannabinoids together.

Why is CBG Scarce?

CBG is very scarce because of its production difficulties. It is much easier to produce other cannabinoids, e.g., THC and CBD. Since CBD and CBG are very similar and CBD is easier to produce, manufacturers opt to produce CBD. Whenever they produce CBG, its products tend to be very expensive. CBG is potentially beneficial hence the research on easing the production and availability of the cannabinoid.
