What is CBG
Take a trip to your local dispensary and you will see quite an array of canna products on the market. I encourage you to talk to the budtender, as they are a wealth of information and can guide you towards the right product for your needs.
There is still a lot of stigma surrounding cannabis. It is my mission to share my knowledge and to educate on the fact that not all cannabis gets you high. There are plenty of products to enjoy that will provide many of the same benefits without the buzz. 🐝
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a one such non-psychoactive cannabinoid that I am most excited about at the moment. It is referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids and for good reason. Other cannabinoids (like CBD or THC) are derived from CBGA, an acidic form of CBG. Like THC, CBG reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, helping with pain and inflammation. Interestingly enough, CBG buffers the effect of THC by working to alleviate the paranoia sometimes caused by higher levels of THC. 🥳
When shopping for CBG products, it is important to keep in mind that CBG is derived from young cannabis plants, which contain higher amounts than fully developed plants. Therefore, CBG is more difficult to produce and more expensive.
Currently, my fave CBG product on the market are the CBG & CBD Emprise soft gels. They contain 10mg of CBG and 50mg of CBD. Personally, I take two in the morning with a cup of coffee. CBG gives me additional energy and focus. The CBD helps to calm my anxiety.
At the end of the day, we are all unique. It is always best to first experiment with any cannabis product in the safety of your own home, when you have the day off the next day.
