What's CBD or CBG?


CBD is otherwise known as cannabidiol. One of the best-known cannabinoids in a hemp plant. It has no psychoactive effects and has promising effects. Every being has an endocannabinoid system that helps the body maintain a healthy balance. CBD indirectly slows down the excretion of natural cannabinoids that are produced by the human body. It binds directly to cannabinoid receptors that are involved in physical and mental health. It helps with anxiety, chronic pain, and arthritis. It helps treat cancer and reduces cancer cell growth.

  • Antibacterial effect
  • Reduces tumor growth and metastases
  • Reduces epileptic seizures

  • Relieves ADD / ADHD symptoms


CBG is an abbreviation for cannabigerol. It is also an effective substance in a hemp plant like CBD. It is not psychoactive and does not have a narcotic effect. It is represented in approximately 1% of the entire hemp plant. CBG is a promising cannabinoid used to treat glaucoma (glaucoma) - the use of CBG reduces intraocular pressure. CBG is also known for its ability to relieve pain due to its analgesic ability. It also helps in the treatment of skin diseases. It increases the production of natural "moisturizers" on the skin, which helps against dry skin. It is also a great helper in bone healing. Therefore, we recommend taking during the treatment of fractures and convalescence.

THC and CBD are already very well-known and health-proven phytocannabinoids, which occur naturally in the hemp plant. Cannabigerol, CBG for short, is another cannabinoid from the hemp plant which has equally positive properties. It also has great potential but is not known yet. In this article, we explain what exactly CBG is, how it works and what health benefits it has.


CBG is an ingredient found in hemp. Like around 100 other cannabinoids, it can be extracted from the hemp plant. CBG is formed from the CBG acid and CBGA and develops further to THC and CBD. It serves as the basis for the important ingredients, namely cannabidiol acid, cannabichromene acid, and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. CBG occurs primarily in young and under-mature cannabis plants. The older the plant gets, the less CBG it contains because the CBG then forms THC and CBD. Cannabigerol can practically only be obtained from young hemp plants since the highest proportion is present here.

Even if CBG is not yet well known, it has numerous advantages and health effects, which however only play a minor role. Nevertheless, it can have a very positive effect on certain complaints. This cannabinoid should be given significantly more attention.


Cannabigerol is mainly found in young plants that have reached an age of around 6 weeks. To produce CBG, this can also be obtained from hemp seeds, whereby only a very small proportion can be found here. The cannabinoid is extracted from food hemp by a special extraction method. Ultimately, it is mixed with hemp seed oil, an ideal carrier oil with an excellent fatty acid pattern, to form the CBG oil.


Cannabigerol is practically the precursor to CBD. This means that there is a large proportion of CBG in the young cannabis plants, which is then converted to CBD under the warmth of the sunlight as well as during the drying process. Even though CBG is the precursor to CBD, there are some differences in the effects. Although these are relatively low, they mean that you have to weigh up whether your CBD or cannabigerol (CBG) is better.

For example, CBG has a very positive effect on problem skin, sleep, and mood, but is less useful for complaints with the intestines and digestion or pain treatment. CBG is said to be useful for eye complaints, such as glaucoma. This is because cannabigerol can lower the intraocular pressure, causing the tear fluid to drain. In the case of CBD, this has not yet been found in the studies. CBG should also be used to support nausea. In contrast to CBD, CBG is also said to promote appetite. In general, however, it is certainly advantageous to add both phytocannabinoids, because together they are particularly effective due to special synergy effects.


Cannabigerol is often used in people with flaky problem skin and who have eye problems. Due to the antioxidative effects, it protects and cares for nerve cells. Since CBG is a natural remedy, there are usually no side effects. Also, it does not make you addicted, and as can be read in many forums, people with eye problems are convinced of CBG. It is used in many different ways, it is best to drop it under the tongue. CBG has a somewhat bitter taste of its own compared to CBD oil. Furthermore, it can be applied to the affected area, which has proven particularly useful for scaly problem skin.


As with CBD oil, the package leaflet of the CBG oil should be observed. Here too, it is important to start with a small dose, which can then be gradually increased. So the body can slowly get used to the cannabigerol and there are usually no side effects.


If the CBG oil is used properly, side effects rarely occur. If the dosage is too high, nausea and vomiting may occur. Diarrhea cannot be ruled out either.

Various doses have been tested in studies and studies and the maximum therapeutic dose is 300 mg CBG per kilogram of body weight. This means that a person weighing 80 kg can take up to 24 grams of CBG. This corresponds to around 5 tablespoons, which usually no one eats. Furthermore, the active ingredient no longer has a therapeutic benefit. Because here too, a lot doesn't always help a lot.


CBG oil should always be stored away from light and high temperatures. It is important to ensure that the container or vial is always tightly closed after use. This is the only way to ensure that the oil cannot oxidize. You also have to consider that CBG is enriched with a carrier oil. This usually has an expiry date. Depending on which carrier oil was used for the CBG oil, the drops should be used up by this date.
