1,000mg CBG + CBD Oil Tincture
CBDistillery is a Colorado-based company that creates high-quality CBD products, and this CBG + CBD oil is no different. It contains about 500 milligrams of CBG and CBD each (1,000 milligrams in total). By pairing these two compounds and combining them with other terpenes and minor cannabinoids, this tincture embraces the advantages of the “entourage effect,” which may allow the user to reap more benefits from each of the plant compounds. With a 1:1 CBG to CBD ratio, these CBDistillery drops have the potential to offer pain relief and relaxation.
What is CBG?
Like CBD, CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is most abundant in low-THC, high-CBD cannabis strains like hemp. CBG reacts with cannabinoid receptors in the brain and counteracts the psychoactivity of THC.
CBG is found in smaller concentrations in the hemp plant than the more notable cannabinoids. This is because the amount of CBG in the plant declines as the plant ages.
The main role of CBG is to synthesize other types of cannabinoids, which has given it the name the “mother of all cannabinoids”
CBG is called the mother of all cannabinoids because all other cannabinoids start out as a form of CBG. CBG’s acidic precursor, CBGa, also serves as the precursor for other cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and others.
The base compound CBGa, or cannabigerolic acid, provides the original material for all other cannabinoids. It also morphs into other acids (THCa, CBDa, CBCa, etc.) under certain conditions. Once it transforms, these precursors eventually go on to become their full, respective cannabinoid forms.
For this reason, CBGa, more technically, is the mother of all cannabinoids, while CBG has been given the nickname “Princess of pot,” as the offspring of CBGa.
