Demand for CBG, short for cannabigerol, is on a steady incline right behind the similar cannabinoid you are likely familiar with – CBD. Both of these powerful hemp-derived molecules are capturing the attention of the nation recently, especially in these unique times when health and wellness are at the forefront of many discussions.
If you are one of the millions who are seeking natural ways to either improve or maintain your health, you have probably heard about CBG. Often referred to as the “mother of all cannabinoids,“ CBG is known to deliver a wide range of wellness benefits completely naturally. CBG got its loving nickname because of the way the compound evolves in the lifecycle of the hemp plant. In short, CBG is most prevalent in the early stages of the plant. As the plant matures and as a result of photosynthesis, CBG-a (cannabigerol acid) synthesizes into other well-known and highly effective cannabinoids like CBD, CBC, THC, and more.
The mature hemp plant actually contains only small amounts of the very powerful compound CBG, as the majority of the CBG-a that was present in the young plant essentially transforms into the other impressive compounds. When researchers looked closely at the powerful ingredient, they realized that CBG was capable of offering a wide range of benefits to consumers. They found that it is so robust that it can interact beautifully and profoundly with the human body and the endocannabinoid system.
Like CBD, hemp-derived CBG is completely legal in the United States. The Farm Bill legalized all derivatives of the hemp plant in 2018, with one important caveat: The final product cannot contain more than .3% THC. When you shop with a trusted retailer, your hemp-derived CBD products will deliver innumerable benefits and be psychoactive free, so you can start feeling your best quickly. Just how quickly? Well, that depends.
Feeling the Benefits: Administration Method Matters
When you make the decision to take any wellness product, you probably don’t feel like waiting around for very long to experience results. If you’re going to exercise patience, you shouldn’t have to waste it on your wellness supplement.
When it comes to CBG, it’s important to know that the specific product you choose can influence how long it will take to feel results. With so many options on the market today, you can enjoy CBG in several ways – some that will result in you feeling results quickly, others that will take a little bit longer but then also last a little bit longer. Here’s a glimpse into some of the most popular CBG products on the market today, and how they may work once you consume them.
- CBG Tincture – If you want results quickly, a CBG tincture is the way to go! Without a doubt the absolute fastest way to deliver the compound to your bloodstream, a CBG tincture can deliver results in as short as 15 minutes (some consumers report even faster results, but everybody is different so, of course, results can vary). A CBG tincture (sometimes called oral drops or oils), is CBG in a liquid form. Tinctures are so fast-acting because of the recommended administration method: sublingual.
While it is possible to use a CBG liquid in other ways, like in a milkshake or a smoothie, for example, the sublingual administration method gives the powerful compound a shortcut to your bloodstream that is remarkably efficient. Everyone has microscopic blood vessels that exist in the membranes under their tongues, and when you squeeze a CBG tincture under your tongue and hold it for at least 60 seconds, the penetrable blood vessels absorb the compounds quickly and deliver them straight to your bloodstream. Any other administration method would take the product through your entire digestive process before it can absorb into the bloodstream, taking longer to deliver results.
- CBG Edibles – When you want long-lasting and dependable support, an edible containing CBG is an attractive and delicious option. Designed with a perfect blend of ingredients to make your experience tasty and beneficial, edibles often feature unique and versatile flavors as well as a carrier oil to help the cannabinoids absorb thoroughly into the body as it travels through your system. First, read the label closely so you have control over your dosage, then, like any other tasty snack, simply administer your product by consuming it!
Edibles are definitely the most delicious way to enjoy CBG and other cannabinoids. Individuals can experience benefits for several hours throughout the day as it slowly releases into your body through your digestive system and penetrates your bloodstream continually as it digests. Edibles (as well as any other CBG-infused product you can consume), are great to take in the morning if you need all-day support, or in the evening if you need help sleeping through the night.
As you can see, how quickly you experience results depends on the type of product you take and how you take it. Another very important thing to consider is the quality of your product. When you purchase CBG from a trustworthy retailer, you can feel confident that no matter which product you choose, it will be safe, pure, and highly effective.
The Hemp Doctor: Superior Quality Hemp Products
Because CBD, CBG, and other hemp-derived compounds have gained such momentum in the wellness industry, it seems like you can find hemp-infused products just about anywhere. Before you spend your money on the first attractive label you see, it would be in your best interest to do a little bit of research to make sure that your product is absolutely safe, legal, and trustworthy.
Because cannabinoids are not regulated by the FDA, some retailers will make claims on their labels that are simply untrue. This can be dangerous for consumers, and frankly, a little bit scary.
