CBG flower is a precursor to CBD and THC. If you have been using CBD or THC for a while, you may have heard the term CBG. And given the way CBD is gaining popularity, experts anticipate that CBG too will quickly become a trend. However, for now, not many people are fully aware of it.
Moreover, many CBD and THC experts believe that CBG is more beneficial than CBD. And as a result, after a few years, it will surpass CBD in its popularity and demand. Some medical professionals also suggest that if users of CBD combine CBG doses, the benefit will double.
Both CBD and CBG come from hemp plants which are now legal throughout the US. Moreover, CBG is said to have the lowest THC even in comparison to CBD. It has several benefits, and people can use it in pre-rolls and vape form.
In this blog post, let’s understand CBG, its benefits, side effects, and how to use it further.
What Is CBG?
The full form of CBG is Cannabigerol and contains cannabigerolic acid. It is one of the cannabinoids available among the many different types of cannabinoids. Unlike others, CBGa does not break down easily into CBG. Only after the decarboxylation process will you be able to get CBG.
Moreover, manufacturers call it the mother of CBD and THC. The reason is that both CBD and THC come from CBG. Therefore, it is also easier to identify CBG. If you look at a CBD or THC bud closely, you will notice its fresh Green color.
Furthermore, when you notice a CBG bud closely, it will be White like frost. You will be able to identify it even from a distance. It is White because the CBG bud is underdeveloped and super snug.
How Is CBG Flower Different From CBD And THC?
In the image below, you will understand the chemical molecular structure of CBG and why it is different from CBD and THC. Moreover, the CBG grows acidic and does not grow in any psychoactive forms.
As we mentioned before, to get CBG from CBGa, you have to carboxylate using high temperature or light. Another difference between CBD, THC, and CBG is that the effects are subtle if you consume CBG alone.
How Does CBG Work In The Human Body?
As of 2021, there is no conclusive research on how exactly CBG works in our bodies. One thing that all experts do know is that CBG activates the endocannabinoid system and binds weakly to the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
This helps us feel balanced, calm, and relieved when we take them in small doses. Moreover, it helps in dealing with the following illnesses.
- Neuroprotectants like ALS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and other brain diseases
- Remarkable anti-cancer properties
- Potent anti-bacterial and anti-fungal (stronger than CBD and THC)
- Helps in minimizing pain
- Relieves inflammation and depression
- Helps with intraocular eye pressure (Glaucoma)
- Appetite Stimulant
- Blood pressure

Some high-quality CBG strains include White CBG, Sour G, Desert Snow CBG, White Widow, and Jack Frost. The quality of CBG to provide all the benefits without making you high is an exciting field of study in medicine as well.
