Our connections to superior genetics means you’ll grow the best plants, with the finest flowers. In the end, you’ll have a superior CBG product to sell.
Considered the mother of all cannabinoids, CBG is where THC and CBD come from. As one of the most abundant compounds on a hemp plant during its flowering stage, you’ll have no problem extracting CBG from hemp flowers if you harvest your crop correctly. However, because CBG is responsible for producing other elements found in the hemp flower, it’s not so abundant by the time you’ve sent your crop away for processing. This makes CBG oil more valuable, and products containing it more expensive.
Because of its tricky nature, hemp farmers looking to produce CBG may consider harvesting their plants earlier in the flowering cycle. The ideal extraction window, for the largest amount of CBG, is somewhere between six-to-eight weeks.
While the cost of CBG currently means you’ll find it in fewer products, using CBG today is best done by ingesting it. Other options are available if you want to apply it directly to your skin, but shopping around you’ll find many products are edible. Just be prepared to pay a little more than you’d expect.
Selling CBG oil in its pure form, as a tincture, is most common. This enables you to ingest it quickly in whichever way you prefer. You can place a few drops on your tongue for quick absorption, or add it to your food or a beverage. You may also find CBG in a protab, which is a pill you can easily swallow.
Also available is CBG isolate powders. This is a unique product that functions as an additive. Being over 99 percent pure, a little CBG powder goes a long way. You can add it to the CBD product you currently use for a little boost. It also works when added to beverages that include milk, or any dairy product, for the best absorption rates.
You’ll find CBG in traditional favorites like gummies, but it’s also popping up in the most unlikely places. Edible CBG products include both gum and toothpaste.
Another popular delivery method for CBG is through vape cartridges. These often have citrusy notes, and can cost less, on average, than tinctures.
Unlike products containing THC, CBG will not get you high. In fact, it may have the opposite effect on consumers, giving you a more clear-headed and functional feeling. Still relatively new in products, CBG may help those dealing with anxiety. It can also increase the production of dopamine, which helps regulate things like mood, sleep, and even appetite. It has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which may make it useful in dealing with a variety of conditions, from high blood pressure to IBS.
