What is CBG oil and what are the benefits of this cannabinoid?

CBG oil is becoming increasingly popular, just like CBD oil. But what exactly is it and what are the benefits? You can read it here!
You've probably heard of CBD oil, but did you know that CBD is far from the only interesting cannabinoid that provides many health benefits? One of those cannabinoids is cannabigerol (CBG), which you take in the form of CBG oil. CBG is particularly popular because of its positive effect on the nervous system and digestion. Would you like to know more about CBG and what exactly the benefits of using CBG bring? Then read on quickly.

What exactly is cannabigerol (CBG)?

CBG is one of the most fascinating cannabinoids out there. The substance occurs naturally in cannabis and hemp plants and fulfills a stem cell function. This means that the CBG that the plant produces is converted into other cannabinoids over the course of its plant life, such as CBD, CBN, CBC and THC. So one could say that CBG is the origin of all the good things that cannabis plants have to offer!

Special varieties of cannabis plants are used to make CBG oil, such as White CBG, Super Glue CBG and Jack Frost CBG. What is special about these varieties is that they convert their CBG very slowly. This means that an extra high content is present in the plant when harvesting, which is then extracted using cold CO2 extraction, together with the other cannabinoids present. By diluting this extract with a nice hemp seed oil, a purely natural cannabinoid oil is created that is extra rich in cannabigerol. 

What are the similarities between CBG and CBD? 

Both CBD and CBG are non-psychoactive cannabinoids: substances from the cannabis plant that do not make you 'high'. The similarities between the two are therefore great. Both substances work affects your endocannabinoid system, which plays an important role in mood regulation, memory, digestion and temperature regulation, among other things.

Differences between CBG and CBD

However, in addition to similarities, there are also differences between CBD and CBG. In addition to the molecular structure, an important difference is that CBG usually occurs in much lower levels in plants. Partly because of this, much less is known about CBG than about CBD, into which a lot of research has already been done. However, several small studies show that CBG can have great value for people who want to improve their digestion and memory. 

What are the benefits of CBG oil?

And just like CBD oil, the use of CBG oil brings a large number of benefits. We have listed the most important benefits for you below.

Cannabigerol is good for digestion

Although research into CBG is only in its early stages, there is anecdotal evidence and studies showing that CBG – even more so than CBD – has beneficial effects on digestion. A study shows, for example that CBG had a positive effect on laboratory animals with irritable bowel syndrome. 

Promotes your nervous system

There are also strong indications that CBG is beneficial for the brain and nervous system. CBG ensures better regulation of the substance anandamide, a neurotransmitter that is responsible for the blissful feeling you can sometimes get. Especially in people with chronic pain and memory problems, the release and breakdown of anandamide is often disturbed, so it is likely that CBG helps with these types of complaints. However, more research is needed to properly determine this.

Safe and legal

A third important advantage of CBG is that, just like CBD oil, it 100% legal is in the Netherlands and many other countries in Europe and North and South America. CBG oil is also safe to use. Buying, possessing and using CBG is therefore not illegal and does not entail any risks.

Easy to use

Taking CBG oil is simple and easy. You place a few drops under your tongue and let it sit there for about a minute. Then you swallow it. In this way, the CBG is immediately absorbed through the mucous membranes in your mouth and starts to work within thirty minutes.

CBG strengthens the effect of CBD oil

Are you currently taking CBD oil and would you like to strengthen its effect? Then it is possible to increase the dose of CBD, but you can also use CBG oil for this. CBD and CBG enhance each other's effect thanks to it entourage effect that occurs when multiple cannabinoids are taken together. 

Pay attention to the quality of your CBG oil

As mentioned, the use of CBG oil is 100% safe and legal. For this it is of course important that you choose good quality CBG oil. Pay particular attention to the CBG percentage and the brand. Reliable brands have test results that show that the CBG content is correct and, for example, there is not too much THC in the oil. Are you ordering CBG oil? via Dutch Vitals?
