CBG Cannabinoid - What is Cannabigerol

Posted by Steve Breault on Aug 6th 2020

Many by now have heard of CBD or Cannabidiol, but there are other compounds in the hemp plant that are very similar.  CBG Cannabinoid or Cannabigerol is one of them that has gained some attention in the second year after the farm bill passed in December of 2018.

What is the difference between CBG and CBGa?

CBGa is the mother cannabinoid of CBD and THC, but don't let this confuse you.  You won't be converting your CBGa into THC as the process isn't that simple.  Lets focus on GBG and CBGa and what the difference is.

CBGa is the acid verision of the CBG molecule.  Both are great and you can choose to consume either, it just depends on your method of consumption.  The heating process of smoking CBG flower or CBG buds converts the CBGa into CBG by decarboxylation.  If you wish to benefit from the cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) version of this compound you would need to consume it raw or make a cold tincture without heating the plant material.  

Different ways to Consume CBG

Much like CBD, there are various consumption methods for CBG.  Some of which are currently available for sale on this website. 

CBG Oil

This is a tincture usually made from a full spectrum distillate or CBG Isolate and a carrier oil.  This is one of the most convenient methods of consumption.  You can take your bottle of CBG oil with you and put a little under your tongue as needed. 

CBG Topical Cream and Salve

If you are looking for a CBG Topical Cream or a Salve, I will be working on a formula soon in combination with CBD.  I like to use a little bit of peppermint and lavander extract as well to add the cooling and relaxing effects.  Working a cream into your hands, muscles, and joints can be a wonderful feeling of relief.

Hemp Cigars and Pre Rolls With CBG

Currently available now are the CBG Hemp Cigars and Pre Rolls.  A very convenient option for smoking your CBG Hemp Flower.  Sometimes there is no better way to wind down then relaxing on the patio with a nice hemp blunt.

Smokable CBG Flower Buds

When I say smokable, that means that the CBG Flower Buds are a high quality flower.  They are grown, dried, and cured properly that provides a clean smooth smoking experience.  You can use your typical glass peices or even vaporize the CBG Flower for an amazing taste.  

Order You CBG Online

Now that you know the difference between CBGa and CBG, you only need to decide which is best for you.  While this cannabinioid is still being studied, I am not able to speak to any medical uses of cannabigerol.
