Is the most commonly known cannabinoid, but has been found to be the most potent. There are bound to be more cannabinoids as research expands and more states legalize cannabis.
CBG is now gaining traction in the cannabis industry. Therefore, we’re here for you to answer any questions you might have about CBG or all of the amazing properties.
First – What Is CBG Anyway?
CBG (or cannabisbigerol) is a cannabinoid that can be found in cannabis. It works just like CBD and THC. It interacts with both the body’s CB1 or cannabis receptor type 1 (and the nervous system), and the CB2 (or the immune system) CBG1 receptors.
CBG, or the “parent”, cannabinoid of cannabis, is the source of all cannabinoids. CBGA, which is also known as cannabis cannabigerolic and cannabigeolic acid, is produced in the cannabis plant. When it’s exposed to heat, light UV or enzymes, CBG will turn into the cannabinoids that we know best, such as CBD.
Researchers have been able to spend a lot more time with the cannabis plants. This has allowed them to extract particular cannabinoids, and harness these for their positive properties. CBG does not cause intoxication when it is isolated. However CBG offers many potential medicinal advantages that could make CBG a strong contender in cannabis’s cannabinoid market.
CBG can get you high?
CBG will not make you feel high like delta-8. CBG does not cause you to get high. It actually helps to balance THC’s potency. CBG acts to “buffer” the THC, which keeps it high-tolerable but below trip-level (think acid and shrooms).
The benefits of cannabis use don’t just stop at getting high. CBG, like CBD still has many health benefits. It can be used to treat pain and provide physical and mental therapy.
What is CBD wax and how is it different from other cannabis waxes?
“Wax”, is the general term for high potency cannabis concentrates and extracts. CBG waxes do not differ from CBD or THC except for the CBG component. CBG waxes may contain large or small amounts of other cannabinoids, depending on what brand they are.
CBG wax is best smoked using a Dab Rig. You can also use it to make a blunt, a joint, or to be topped on top with a pipe’s bowl. CBG wax can be used infusions to create edibles for cannabis. CBG-wax infusing edibles can help ensure that you get the correct amount of cannabis and a consistent flavor for your dank recipe.
CBG: What are the Benefits?
Similar to THC, CBD and its cannabinoid sibling THC, CBG has been shown to be effective in treating many of the ailments that whole-plant cannabis is capable of treating, including:
- Pain relief

CBG, a type of cannabinoid known for its medicinal properties, is capable of helping people in many ways. You can use it to supplement your usual smoke or bud session and reduce anxiety, paranoia, tension, and other side effects of too much THC. It is important to talk to your doctor about CBG before you start using it, especially if there are any allergies to cannabis or cannabis-derived products.
