What is CBG Flower?
CBG stands for Cannabigerol. It is a natural cannabinoid like CBD and THC that is only produced in cannabis plants. Typically, CBG is known as a “minor cannabinoid” because the plant normally produces small amounts of it (1% or lower). But now, with selective breeding, growers can generate strains with high CBG content, upwards of 20%! This makes CBG the dominant cannabinoid in this type of flower.
Although cannabigerol is the dominant cannabinoid, these flowers will also naturally contain other cannabinoids like CBD, THC, CBC, CBN, and more. Other cannabinoids present can intensify the effects of CBG when taken in combination with each other. This combination results in the “synergistic effects” of cannabinoids. Additionally, CBD flowers will have natural terpenes and flavonoids, which may add to the synergistic effect.
What’s the Difference: CBG vs CBD
Most people are familiar with the cannabinoids CBD and THC. So what separates CBG from other cannabinoids? First of all, CBD and CBG, at the molecular level, have entirely different chemical structures.
CBG is usually produced early in the plant’s lifecycle. Then it converts into one of three known cannabinoids (CBD, THC, and CBC) later in the lifecycle through UV exposure or heat. In a way, cannabigerol is the “parent cannabinoid” to these other cannabinoids. Luckily, farmers can now yield high CBG strains with modern grow tactics before it converts to another cannabinoid.
As you can imagine, CBD and CBG share many qualities that overlap, such as calming and relaxing effects, which makes them similar. Although many people claim CBG offers more energetic effects than CBD, perhaps making it a better daytime option. Like CBD, CBG will not get you high. However, it may offer some qualities CBD doesn’t, like reducing optical discomfort or antibacterial properties.
Why do People Use CBG Flower?
CBG offers many of the same benefits as CBD and THC without getting you “high.” If you research hemp cannabinoids, you will find they have many potential benefits. Here are some of the reasons why people prefer to smoke this particular flower.
Cannabinoid Rich Delivery:
Smoking this flower is a great way to deliver CBG and other cannabinoids to your endocannabinoid system.
Inhaling this phytocannabinoid is the quickest way to enjoy its benefits.
Smoking this flower combines CBG and other cannabinoids plus terpenes and flavonoids to create superior synergistic effects.
Heat Activates Phytocannabinoids:
When you smoke hemp flower the heat can activate phytocannabinoids by a process known as decarboxylation.
May Help Curb Nicotine Dependencies:
Some cigarette smokers claim that smoking CBG flower seems to reduce their nicotine cravings.
Smoking can be Social:
Some people feel smoking flower can be more socially enjoyable than using other cannabinoid applications.
CBG applications can be expensive to produce because it is a “minor cannabinoid” in most cannabis strains. Smoking CBG flower may be the most cost-effective way to intake this cannabinoid.
