CBG is short for cannabigerol. CBG is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, which has a long history of medicinal use. At Green Garden Gold, our CBG is derived directly from the hemp plant to ensure that no THC is harvested. THC is the chemical compound found in marijuana which leads to the feeling of being “high”. CBG is also found in marijuana, but the component itself does not cause the “high” or intoxication that THC can. Research supports the claim that consuming CBG is not harmful in any way. Instead, CBG often provides benefits for consumers’ well-being, including pain relief and reduction of swelling.
CBG, known as the “Mother of All Cannabinoids”, is the parent of CBD, CBC, CBN, and THC. CBG not only may provide potential health benefits to the endocannabinoid system but to the central nervous system as well — without causing a high. There are many similarities between these two cannabinoids. Studies have shown that both cannabis compounds have the potential to treat various medical conditions without the negative side effects sometimes caused by pharmaceutical medicine.Shop CBG Products Here
The CB1 Receptor
CBG does not make you “high.” While the CB1 receptor perfectly binds to THC, which causes the feeling of being high when THC is consumed, CBG does not share this perfect bind. CBG is similar to CBD in that both have a different chemical makeup than THC and do not perfectly fit into your CB1 receptors. This means that CBG does not cause the feeling of being “high.” However, CBG does bind to other parts of the endocannabinoid system and can impact consumers in other ways that may provide potential medical benefits.
What Happens if You Consume CBG and CBD At the Same Time?
When we consume CBG and CBD, our bodies take in hundreds of cannabinoids. Each one of these cannabinoids activates with unique effects and benefits. Their behavior may change in the presence and mixture of other compounds. This is called the “entourage effect.” Essentially, the effects of hemp extract are strongest when they are taken together. When individual elements are isolated, the benefits are weakened. When CBG and CBD are consumed in tandem, the benefits become more tangible. Both CBG and CBD compounds have similar benefits. For example, they are both known to have antidepressant and anti-inflammatory properties, among many others.Shop CBG Products Here
As mentioned above, CBG has antidepressant properties which may help with anxiety and depression. CBG is also known to be a natural option for treating conditions such as:
- Neurodegeneration — CBG is being closely studied for its ability to combat Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
- Glaucoma — CBG may help reduce intraocular pressure.
- Some Types of Cancer — Help reduce the size of tumors
- Bladder disorders — Influence the bladder to decrease the frequency of contractions
- Appetite disorders — The components affected by the CBG molecule activate appetite compounds
- Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS) — Its anti-inflammatory properties may help reduce IBS.
- Eczema and psoriasis — As mentioned previously, CBG owns anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce the onset of Eczema and psoriasis symptoms.
Is CBG Safe?
CBG is completely safe. It is a nonpsychoactive compound and does not intoxicate you in any way, unlike THC. CBG is safe to consume when sourced from a reliable CBG store and consumed in reasonable doses. It is recommended you start with no more than 30mg per day. Consult your physician if you have particular medical concerns. For our part at Green Garden Gold, we are a certified and regulated CBG retailer. Green Garden Gold has an in-depth and rigorous hemp-extraction process to make sure that we provide the purest and cleanest CBG products possible. While research on the side effects of CBG is still underway, the current indicators are encouraging. Studies have noted its low toxicity with no significant side effects observed when taken in normal doses.Shop CBG Products Here
Is CBG Legal?
CBG is legal in all 50 states, thanks to the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the “Farm Bill.” The Farm Bill also created regulations for hemp farmers: as long as the hemp is produced in a manner consistent with the Farm Bill, federal regulations, state regulations, and is farmed by a licensed hemp grower, all practices are lawful. We at Green Garden Gold take pride in our work — the farmers we partner with plant and grow all our CBG products legally and ethically to deliver absolute quality for our customers.
