What is CBG and what are the benefits? Most people have heard of CBD and THC, but a lesser-known cannabinoid is CBG. It’s worth learning about CBG benefits, of which there are many! And the effects of CBG are different from those of CBD and THC*. Let’s take a look!
What is CBG?
Without getting too scientific, Cannabigerol aka. CBG is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found within the hemp plant. CBG naturally transforms into other phytocannabinoids such as CBD and THC as the hemp plant matures.
CBG is being studied for its many health benefits, including reducing inflammation, inhibiting cancer growth, having antidepressant characteristics, and more.
CBG Potential Benefits
CBG alone doesn’t cause intoxicating effects—in other words, it won’t get you high like THC. In fact, CBG has even been shown to counteract THC’s psychoactive effects, like paranoia.
CBG is being studied to treat pain, psoriasis, anxiety, depression, and as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. So far there has been less in-depth research done on CBG compared to CBD, so we are anxiously awaiting further research to be released to fully understand its potential.
How are CBD and CBG Different?
CBD and CBG each offer a different feeling when consumed. CBD is often described as calming and relaxing, while CBG benefits include providing a lighter, more uplifting sense of relief.
Phytocannabinoids increase the production of our own endocannabinoids by interacting in various ways with our Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Research indicates that CBD prevents endocannabinoids from being broken down, meaning they will have a larger effect on your body. CBG is being researched for its may be unique among its ability to interact with a range of the body’s receptor sites in addition to those specific to the ECS.

When used together CBG increases the effect of CBD, this is known as the “Entourage Effect”.
When looking at the CBG benefits, the two cannabinoids work together along with hundreds of other cannabinoids as part of the “entourage effect” in our Organic Full Spectrum CBD Oils. The entourage effect means that the naturally occurring compounds found in hemp plants work together to increase the therapeutic benefits of each cannabinoid. CBD by itself has many potential benefits, but when it’s paired with other cannabinoids like CBG that are found naturally occurring in the hemp plant (Full Spectrum), you can enjoy CBD and CBG the way nature intended.
