You’re likely familiar with the terms tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), but have you ever heard about cannabigerol (CBG)?
Many think it’s something new in the industry when, in reality, it’s always been around.
So, let's take a closer look.
CBG is a rare cannabinoid with a handful of nicknames.
Some have dubbed it the “Granddaddy” of all cannabinoids, and others often refer to it as the “Mother.”
In any case, CBG is one that deserves respect (just as the nicknames imply.)
Because CBG is the most fundamental cannabinoid from which CBD, THC, and all other cannabinoids come from.
Studies have shown that CBG reacts with our endocannabinoid system to improve our body’s homeostasis and balance. The studies also dive into learning more about how CBG works by itself and other cannabinoids.
CBG has been observed to have excellent therapeutic potential in combating pain, reducing inflammation, and similar to CBD, it doesn’t contain the psychoactive properties that might get you “high.”
With no psychoactive properties and a varying range of therapeutic uses, you may be wondering: How come it’s not as wildly popular and mentioned as it’s relative CBD?
This is because it only exists at very low levels within a mature cannabis plant, and production for this cannabinoid can be quite costly. For this reason, you may also hear it referred to as “the Rolls Royce of cannabinoids.”
As the information on CBG unfolds thanks to ongoing research, breeders have been able to use the findings to their advantage and conduct genetic manipulation to grow cannabis plants with higher yields of CBG.
This Citrus CBG strain contains 14.887% total cannabinoids with <0.3% Delta 9 THC and is organically grown and hand-trimmed with tender love and care.
Of course, the bud is tested through a 3rd party lab to ensure purity and compliance and carefully monitored by our quality assurance specialists.
