CBG flower is a hemp flower with high levels of CBG. Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the 100+
cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it will not get
you stoned. It typically converts into CBD and THC as the hemp plant grows, but some strains of
industrial hemp specifically produce high levels of CBG in order to take advantage of its beneficial effects.
Like THC and CBD, CBG reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the human body, but each cannabinoid
provides different effects.
What is the difference between CBD and CBG?
CBD (cannabidiol) and CBG (cannabigerol) are phytocannabinoids, or compounds produced by the
cannabis plant. Both CBD and CBG bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body. Of the two, CBD
has been more extensively researched, while CBG is the “next big thing” in hemp products. Neither
compound is psychoactive, meaning while they may have beneficial health-supporting properties,
they won’t give you a “high” or “stoned” feeling.
What does a CBG flower do?
The CBG flower provides the body with CBG, which binds to cell receptors in the body called CB1
and CB2 receptors. Your body naturally produces endocannabinoids which themselves bind to these
receptors as part of the body’s internal messaging systems. By using these receptors, CBG is able
to produce its health-supporting effects.
What are the benefits of CBG flower?
CBG flower is good for supporting a wide range of health systems, including mood, energy, sleep
patterns, and muscle and joint function. CBG, or cannabigerol, may also help modulate the
paranoia-inducing effects of THC in marijuana users.
Does a CBG flower get you high?
CBG flower will not get you stoned. The cannabinoid in marjiuana that causes the drug’s “high” is
THC. The other cannabinoids in the plant, including CBG, do not give a “stoned” or “high” feeling
when used. In fact, some marijuana users report that CBG can counteract the negative effects of
marijuana in users who have overindulged.
