CBG Flower FAQ
What is CBG Flower?
CBG is known as the parent, or mother, cannabinoid. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerolic acid (CBG-A).
Specific enzymes in the plant break down CBG-A, and direct it down one of three main cannabinoid lines - tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).
As with CBD, CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, so you get similar potential medical benefits without getting 'high'.
What is CBG flower good for?
CBG Flower is another form of hemp flower that is high in Cannabigerol (CBG) content.
It has been shown that like CBD, and other hemp products in the cannabinoid spectrum, CBG can interact with CB1 receptors, which may be part of the reason behind its therapeutic effects and other potential benefits.
Studies have shown that CBG has also been found to be effective against inflammation, Chron's Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, cancer, and even fighting dental plaque and bacteria.
Of course, further studies need to be done, but CBG has shown tremendous promise for treating a wide range of medical conditions.
When it comes to the benefits of its flower form specifically, it's commonly used as a quick way to consume CBG and feel relief and other potential benefits quickly, similar to how others will tend to prefer CBD Flower over slower acting alternatives, like CBD Gummies.
What's the difference between CBD and CBG hemp flower?
Two things in common that are shared between the two minor cannabinoids is they both are known for their medicinal properties and potential benefits related to them, and also known for their soothing therapeutic effects that will arise when used.
However, when it comes to the actual difference between the cannabinoids themselves, the reality is that although they are closely related, they play separate roles in what makes cannabis, well... cannabis.
The easiest way to put it into layman's terms when it comes to the science behind it, is that some of the main cannabinoids that are more popularly known (CBD, THC, and CBC), actually are the result of the CBG-A, the acidic form of CBG, being broken down by enzymes in the cannabis itself.
This is why it's commonly referred to as the mother plant, since the more mainstream cannabinoids we all know actually derive from CBG.
Does CBG Hemp Flower show up on drug tests?
Like CBD and other minor cannabinoid related products, it's normal to wonder if using them will cause a drug test result to come back positive after a cannabis drug assessment.
Due to CBG, along with CBD, being non-psychoactive cannabinoids, the chances for them being screened for specifically during any assessments you take are fairly low.
The main compound that is usually screened for is delta-9 THC, which is the main cannabinoid found in recreational marijuana and known for its psychoactive effects.
Because of this, it should be noted that a fair amount of hemp products on the market are not completely free of traces of delta-9 THC, as the federal limit for for hemp products allows for them to have up to a .3% THC Content. As always, double check your hemp strain suppliers and their third party lab-test results to ensure that your hemp flower has the appropriate levels of desired cannabinoids.
