Can You Take CBD and CBG Together?

In the wellness market lately, there is no indication that the demand for high/quality CBD will be slowing down anytime soon. Now more than ever, consumers are seeking natural wellness alternatives in lieu of chemical-based, unhealthy options that cause unwanted mind-altering side effects, and CBD is leading the charge on those healthy solutions. With so many versatile CBD products available on the market today, eager consumers have numerous options, and it is easy to find a product that fits seamlessly into one’s everyday lifestyle.

CBD is a plant-derived, completely natural compound that is extracted from the healthy hemp plant and used in wellness products and available in stores and online since 2018. Recently, another hemp-derived compound has been sharing the spotlight with CBD: CBG. You may be surprised to learn that these compounds are somewhat similar in their composition, and both offer exceptional health benefits, so they don’t actually compete with one another. Instead, the two compounds complement one another when used together.


If you want to understand why CBD and CBG are such great wellness ingredients when combined, it is best to first get to know them individually. Let’s discuss each beneficial compound.

CBD – Cannabidiol

CBD is short for cannabidiol, and it is a compound called a cannabinoid, which is derived from plants in the cannabis family. Both hemp and marijuana are in this plant family, but in the United States, only derivatives of hemp are legal, so that is what you will see in high-quality CBD products you will find in stores and online.

Hemp-derived CBD is a completely natural compound that interacts harmoniously with the human body when it enters the bloodstream, and it delivers several benefits to individuals, including improving one’s nightly sleep routine, helping one feel more relaxed and emotionally calm, reducing fatigue due to age or excessive physical activity, and more. In order to comply with the law (The Farm Bill), hemp-derived CBD contains no more than .3% THC, so it is not known to produce any psychoactive side effects upon use.

CBG – Cannabigerol

CBG is short for cannabigerol, and it is also a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. Just like CBD, hemp-derived CBG is completely legal in the United States, as long as it contains no more than .3% THC. Like CBD, CBG is also non-psychoactive.

They are both cannabinoids, and they are both derived from hemp, but the two are slightly different. CBG is known as the mother of all cannabinoids, because it is actually found most prevalently in the young hemp plant. Over the plant’s life cycle, the compound CBGa, the acidic form of CBG, evolves into CBD and other well-known cannabinoids. Because of its elite status and how difficult it is to yield high amounts of, CBG is gaining more attention. When CBG enters the body, it is dynamically absorbent and it is able to interact with the endocannabinoid system in a superior way to promote homeostasis.

CBD and CBG: A Dynamic Duo

Now that you know a little bit about each of these hemp-derived compounds, we can discuss why they are better together.

There is plenty of research to indicate that when a single cannabinoid enters the body, it interacts nicely with the body. However, there is an overwhelming amount of research to suggest that when more than one cannabinoid enters the bloodstream simultaneously, the benefits are exponentially multiplied. This phenomenon is called The Entourage Effect. The idea behind The Entourage Effect is that a team is much more effective than the individuals. CBD and CBG are both available as an isolate, which are products featuring only one specific cannabinoid in a concentrated form. However, when you use a CBD and CBG blend, the body responds much more favorably.

The Entourage Effect is considered the most desired and ideal wellness experience available on the market today, and you can experience it when you shop with premier hemp retailers like The Hemp Doctor. We offer several products featuring both CBD and CBG as well as products with a phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract as the primary ingredient, which contains several cannabinoids that interact synergistically in the body.

In the wellness market lately, there is no indication that the demand for high/quality CBD will be slowing down anytime soon.

At The Hemp Doctor, America’s Premier Hemp & CBD Dispensary, we offer several wellness products featuring premium CBD and CBG, including our best-selling CBD and CBG 2000 milligram oil tincture! This potent oral drop contains 1000 milligrams of CBD and 1000 milligrams of CBG together in one powerful product. Available in full-spectrum and broad-spectrum varieties, you can experience the very best of both of these compounds in one dose!

Of course, we can’t forget another of our incredible CBG products – our very own CBG Isolate Powder!

As we have discussed before when different cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together they produce The Entourage Effect and are much more beneficial than just an isolate alone. So why would you be interested in a CBG Isolate? Good question and here’s your answer.

You are going to find many fantastic and beneficial products throughout The Hemp Doctor’s extensive inventory. From our tinctures to our edibles, to our flower and preroll, we boast one of the best inventories in the business. However, although our full-spectrum and broad-spectrum products come with some amount of CBG, you may be convinced that you want more CBG in your daily routine but can’t find any of our products that are high enough in CBG content. That’s where CBG isolate comes in.

By adding CBG isolate to your favorite food or beverage, you can enhance any of the other CBD or Delta 8 THC products by also ingesting your CBG isolate at the same time. For example, why not add CBG isolate to your favorite beverage that you’re using to wash down your CBD softgel? This way, you can experience the powerful combination of CBG with any of your favorite CBD or Delta 8 THC products.
