Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBG?

CBG (Cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It is considered a “minor cannabinoid” due to the low presence of CBG found in fully grown hemp. It is also the precursor molecule to both CBD and THC which has earned it the nickname “the mother molecule”. CBG acts directly on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain, allowing for it to have a more powerful effect than CBD. More and more studies are being done on the therapeutic benefits of CBG products, but the results are already showing unbelievable potential.

What is the difference between CBG and CBD?
There are a lot of similarities between CBG and CBD, but there are also many differences. CBD has many benefits however, most of these benefits occur through indirect interactions with the endocannabinoid system, while CBG has shown to work directly with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain. What this means is that CBG can provide similar benefits as CBD but more directly and more effectively. CBG also has a long list of benefits that CBD does not.

Another fact about CBG that most people don’t know is that CBG is the precursor molecule to CBD and THC. CBG will cast a shadow over these primary cannabinoids in the world of natural therapeutics, as more studies are completed and released to the public.

Minor cannabinoids refer to the many cannabinoids found in hemp plants that are found in a significantly low concentration relative to cannabinoids like CBD and THC. Although there is much research to be done on minor cannabinoids, many of them have shown to have incredible therapeutic benefits. The list of minor cannabinoids is extensive but there are a few popular cannabinoids that really stand out such as: CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol) and CBC (cannabichromene). These cannabinoids are found in such small amounts that the cost for isolates and distillates rich in these cannabinoids can reach up to $50,000 for a kilo (1000 grams).

What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system is a widespread neurological system that plays important roles in the central nervous system’s development, synaptic plasticity, and the response to endogenous and environmental insults. The endocannabinoid system is comprised of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), and enzymes. The enzymes are responsible for the synthesis and degradation of the endocannabinoids. Essentially, it maintains our bodies homeostasis- the biological harmony in response to the changes in our environment.

Terpenes are found in endless combinations in hemp. They can be isolated and utilized for a variety of purposes.

When terpenes are use in conjunction with cannabinoids they add to the “entourage effect”, which provides more benefits to the user. Different combinations of terprenes and cannabinoids create different effects.
