Our CBG hemp flower contains 12 to 14% CBG with frosty, silver trichomes covering the bright green hemp buds. These CBG-rich hemp buds have a citrusy and hoppy aroma with hints of chamomile and piney fresh mountain air.
What’s the difference between CBG and CBD?
CBG stands for cannabigerolic acid which is the seeds converted into tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), the precursor of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). Most hemp strains contain only small amounts of CBG, but new CBG-rich hemp strains are now available. Because CBG hemp flower is still a less common variety, it often comes at a higher cost.
CBG is the parent molecule of THC and CBD, which have different molecular structures and different interactions with the endocannabinoid system. Unlike THC, CBD and CBG are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high. Our CBG hemp flower contains less than 0.3% delta-9-THC.
Isolated, each cannabinoid has its own beneficial properties, many that overlap. When CBD and CBG are taken together, the benefits of the CBD are believed to last longer and be more pronounced. CBG also suspected to amplify or synergize with the other cannabinoids and terpenes in full-spectrum products.
