In 2021 hemp-derived products are all around you, and if before many associated the hemp plant with CBD, products with new cannabinoids start to appear on the market. CBG that has many similarities with CBD, is gaining the attention of consumers and retailers. CBG tinctures, edibles, and softgels are now available at various stores, and if you wish to try one of these, you may have doubts if it’s going to make a good match with your CBD products you have recently acquired or have been consuming for a long time. If so, here’s everything you need to know.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation almost every American has heard in their lives over the last few years; it is short for cannabidiol, and it is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. It has been booming in popularity since the 2018 Farm Bill made all hemp-derived products federally legal. Since then, innumerable retailers have been selling wellness products containing CBD. However, both hemp and marijuana-cousin plants in the cannabis Sativa plant family feature CBD; the CBD products on the market are hemp-derived. According to law, only products from hemp containing up to .3% of THC – a psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant, are legal for selling and consumption. Marijuana has much higher THC potency, so it remains federally illegal.
Hemp-derived products are safe to consume, don’t cause mind-altering side effects, and are available at countless stores. Millions of consumers across the U.S. have tried CBD and incorporated it into their wellness routines. As the hemp plant has much more to offer than only CBD, researchers, and manufacturers have begun extracting other cannabinoids from it to create new and innovative wellness products, including those with CBG.
CBG, short for cannabigerol, is also amongst hundreds of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. It has recently been growing in popularity, and new wellness products featuring this compound appeared on the market. It’s quickly gaining popularity amongst CBD admirers, and more retailers featured it in their product assortment.
CBG, compared to CBD, is a rarer compound and mature hemp features only 1% of it. It’s much more challenging to extract and acquire large amounts of CBG for use in wellness products. However, CBG is born in the cannabis plant as a cannabigerol acid, CBG-A. Then, thanks to photosynthesis, it’s converted into cannabinoids and plays a role in producing such famous compounds as CBD and THC.
Although CBG is so rare in mature hemp, it’s more abundant in the young hemp plant – at the early stages of its development, and to extract more of the compound, manufacturers need to catch the perfect moment. Thanks to extraction methods such as the CO2 extraction method and the solvent extraction method, CBG can be acquired from hemp and added to trending and innovative wellness products for millions of consumers.
Taking CBG and CBD together
As hemp-derived CBG is becoming more accessible to consumers, many started wondering if it’s safe to take CBG and CBD together and if either of them will counteract the effects of one another on the human body.
The short answer is that not only CBG and CBD are safe to take simultaneously, but by doing so, you may increase the effectiveness of both cannabinoids; here is how:
The Entourage Effect is the theory suggesting that when more than one cannabinoids enter the bloodstream, they become more effective than only one. So cannabinoids work well together and can be more effective as a team rather than individual players. It means that if you’re already using either of the popular cannabinoids, you can confidently add another one to your routine and expect boosted effects.
Taking CBG and CBD together is an excellent idea to see well-balanced results. Cannabidiol indirectly interacts with your endocannabinoid; It stimulates enzymes that produce endocannabinoids. On the other hand, cannabigerol directly interacts with your CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, making these two compounds a match made in heaven.
Although CBD and CBG may deliver astonishing results, it all depends on the quality of the products you choose. Countless retailers claim to offer the best solutions on the market, yet not all can prove the ingredients’ quality and compounds in their products.
Several aspects determine if CBG and CBD you select are worth investing in, such as the origin of hemp, production methods, third-party lab testing, packaging, and ingredients in the bottle. The internet is full of choices, and it can be easy to find desired products in just a millisecond, but it’s tough to select between so many options. Shopping for wellness products shouldn’t be that overwhelming, and you should confidently acquire top-grade products without much worry.
