CBG, cannabigerol, is a phyto (plant-based) cannabinoid compound. Cannabigerol occurs in a variety of hemp CBG strains, usually in minor concentrations. Non-psychoactive strains of CBD hemp can also feature a range of minor phytocannabinoids, including CBC, CBN, CBDA, etc.
Each of these compounds has as much character and potency as CBD. The attributes, dosages, and applications of these individual compounds simply haven’t been explored or discussed as much as cannabidiol.
The Next Big Cannabinoid
Each cannabinoid has as much potential as CBD. With every cannabinoid that we begin offering in isolate or broad-spectrum form, we are providing a new turn-key solution that relates to the activation and harmonization of many valuable physiological pathways.
Cannabigerol oil just happens to be our top pick for the next big cannabinoid contender. On the surface, cannabigerol creates experiences and reports similar to CBD use. With a closer examination of the facts surrounding CBG, it is clear that CBG exerts new, beneficial influences over a variety of targets that CBD is unable to provide.
This partially explains the “entourage effect,” which occurs when multiple cannabinoids and related cannabis/hemp nutrients are taken at one time. Imagine that taking CBD will illuminate unique neurological cellular pathways in the body, as vibrant as strings of holiday lights. Then, adding CBG would activate an additional portion of this luminescent system, with slightly different, yet relevant and expanding coverage.
When taking multiple hemp-related compounds (which can include flavonoids and terpenoids, both found in Broad-Spectrum CBD) your beneficial endocannabinoid related cellular activity receives a serious, and well-rounded boost. By selecting to maximize one specific cannabis powerhouse, like CBG, it allows the compound’s nuanced potential to work deeply with and entrench itself into our associated cellular networks, creating lasting holistic support.
Herbal Health CBG UK Solution
This incredible cannabinoid product is easily enjoyed. Just like our classic Broad-Spectrum CBD tinctures, our CBG oil for sale is available in 10ml bottles. These items are powered by pure crystalline CBG isolate.
Our 2.5% blend contains 250mg of CBG suspended in 10ml of liquid. The 5% blend features 500mg of CBG within the same volume of fluid.
The dosage guidelines remain the same for all minor cannabinoids. The FSA recommends a 70mg per day maximum, which can be broken down in as many doses as you please. Each treatment of CBG will count towards your daily total. If you love these formulas and want to stick with straight CBG, have at it! Many consumers find the experience just as valuable as pure CBD.
If you want to really leverage the entourage effect, try splitting your total 70mgs between CBG isolates, Broad Spectrum CBD, and isolated CBD. The joys of nature have provided complete plants brimming with perfectly balanced life-giving organic compounds. Hemp plant material, which has been relied on for physical and wellness support for millennia, was untampered by selective extractions for a majority of recorded history. Honoring these natural, broad arrays of compounds is an intuitive way to maximize the use of herbal medicinals.
The ability to select a few of your favorite cannabinoids and maximize them is also proving to be physiologically beneficial. Research across the world has shown that unique spectrums of cannabis/hemp compounds can be used as targeted approaches to a variety of symptoms. By respecting this wild, natural, and inclusive preference for variety, while still enhancing the extracts with our scientific precision, we can quickly discover a robust, manageable selection of cannabinoids that will support our unique biological conditions.
CBG Tincture Formula
Our cannabigerol formula is suspended in a natural carrier oil, which maximizes the absorption of this natural compound. For best results, select your desired mg concentration of CBG by using the 1ml dropper attached to the bottle?s cap. Reference the packaging details for additional dosing information.
Once the correct volume of CBG has been selected, use the dropper to place the chosen oil under the tongue. Then hold the product under the tongue, with the lips and jaw in a comfortable position. After approximately seventy-five seconds, swallow the CBG tincture.
This method of administration is known as sublingual application. By holding the oil under the tongue it allows the suspended CBD to interact with the cells of the mucous membrane of the mouth. This membrane draws in a portion of the CBD, depositing it quickly into the bloodstream. The remainder flows through the digestive tract and is absorbed as usual.
CBG, CBD, THC, all the cannabinoids you can name, have affinities for fats. By placing any of these compounds into a carrier oil, their bioavailability automatically increases. Lipids interact with various membranes along the digestive tract, allowing fat-loving molecules (in this case, CBG) to quickly permeate through the cellular walls, entering into the bloodstream at an increased rate.
Once in the blood, the cannabigerol, and additional ingested cannabinoid compounds, will circulate until they approach their selected cellular targets. Several cellular mechanisms and supporting signallers play a role in the interaction between cannabinoids and our cannabinoid receptors. One of these is a lipid raft formation in cell walls, which makes it possible for the integration of specific fat-loving cannabinoid components. The additional consumption of healthy fats in the form of these oil carriers is likely to allow for a higher affinity for CBG and CBD activity at their final cellular targets.
Non-Psychoactive CBG ~ Lab Test Approval
Our cannabigerol isolate is 100% non-psychoactive. The only compound in cannabis shown to alter consciousness reliably is THC. Even our Broad Spectrum extracts have been refined to eliminate THC, so it stands to reason that our CBG isolates have been whittled down to the highest expression of their pure crystalline form.
We leverage third-party lab testing on every batch of our Herbal Health products. These results indicate the purity, potency, and dose consistency of every batch. The oil in our CBG tincture is guaranteed to contain an evenly distributed concentration of cannabigerol in direct agreement with product labeling.
With this straightforward and refined potency balance, our customers can easily experiment with their CBD and CBG dosages, knowing that each future order will contain products with uniform amounts of their cannabinoid ingredients.
THC free products are allowed to be sold freely without restriction. Miniscule 0.03% THC concentrations (per dry weight of the product) are permitted in full-spectrum extracts. These products will never create a noticeable high, but they may cause false positives for marijuana drug tests. Non-intoxicating hemp can still contain these trace amounts of THC, even though you could never consume enough of it to get high.
In response to the presence of this natural, beneficial, yet regulated component of our non-intoxicating hemp varieties of cannabis sativa, we have opted to refine all of our tinctures to remove any possibility of THC consumption. We do, however, respect other distributors who attempt to provide an authentic hemp experience by leaving their compliant full-spectrum products intact.
CBG Supplemental Activity
CBG engages the following biological targets:
- CB1 Receptors (Antagonism)
- CB2 Receptors (Agonism)
- 5HT1a Receptor (Antagonist)
- Alpha-2 Adrenergic Receptor (Agonism)
- COX 1/2 Enzyme (Inhibition)
CB1 and CB2 receptors both have a tremendous amount of potent attributes. As you can see, CBG both stimulates (acts as an agonist) or inhibits ( antagonist) a few endocannabinoid related targets.
CBD acts as a potent yet indirect stimulator for CB1 receptors. This is achieved by cannabidiol?s ability to prevent the breakdown of Anandamide (AEA), one of our central endogenous cannabinoids, which has a powerful affinity for CB1 activation. The consumption of both CBD and CBG together creates a beneficial and well-balanced activation of this endocannabinoid receptor.
In response, our endogenous cannabinoids and their related receptor expressions will quickly regulate their expressions to optimize the endocannabinoid system and to provide physiological support. As we add in unique cannabinoids, which help to tone and optimize the endocannabinoid system from various angles, balance and harmony are achieved.
CBD and CBG both interact with 5HT1a serotonin receptor sites helping to tonify its beneficial expression. Modification of this serotonin receptor is integral in the formation and support of positive moods. CBD does not share CBG?s alpha-2 adrenergic receptor agonism and COX 1/2 enzyme inhibition. These unique CBG qualities help to support anti-inflammatory and stress-relieving activities, which establish a perception of welfare.
We have covered quite a lot with this cannabigerol overview. Yet, there are still many facets waiting to be examined. Doing a quick take comparing CBD and CBG can quickly become a rich experience. Understanding the implications of specific CBG related cannabinoid receptors can also tell us much more about the common uses of this valuable hemp compound.
