A warning: if you haven’t already, you’re going to be hearing a lot more about Cannabigerol or CBG in the coming months and years.
Remember how CBD seemingly exploded into the public awareness? It went from an obscure holistic remedy to the most buzzy alternative health supplement on the planet.
Now, CBD has become a household name. Celebrities have their own brands. Medical doctors are offering it to patients to aid in healing and health maintenance. You might even give it to your pet (which you should).
So be warned, CBG is next. Keep reading to learn about this exciting cannabinoid that is about to take the market by storm.
What is CBG?
CBD or Cannabigerol is another cannabinoid compound found in the industrial hemp and cannabis plants. It is one of the more abundant and common cannabinoids behind THC and CBD.
In some ways it’s similar to CBD. But they also have distinct differences.
CBG is more energizing and uplifting. While it is not psychoactive like THC it does give the user a mildly pleasant mental feeling that is great for being productive and alert throughout the day.
How Does CBG Work?
Like all 112 other cannabinoids CBG works with your Endocannabinoid system. It fits into the Endocannabinoid receptors in every cell in your body like a key fits into a lock.
And, it has similar benefits to other cannabinoids. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, it reduces pain, and it is an antioxidant, among many more similarities.
But CBG is really exciting because of how it is different than other cannabinoids. It is the one cannabinoid that we know about that produces noticeable boosts in energy and cerebral function.
CBD can make getting into flow easier, enhance focus, and give you alert energy to power through your day without using stimulants like caffeine.
It’s a great supplement to take with your coffee in the morning because it will reduce the jitters caffeine can sometimes give you. Or, you can replace your morning cup of coffee altogether with CBG.
That being said, it’s not something you want to take before bed. But there are other cannabinoids that help with sleep.
Should I Add CBG to my CBD Product Line?
If you offer CBD to your customers, or are thinking about starting your own CBD company, CBG can give you many of the benefits that CBD does. And, there’s lower competition in the CBG world right now compared to the CBD market.
If you want to offer your customers something in addition to CBD, that has similar but also distinct benefits, CBG is perfect for you.
You can recommend it as a morning supplement that can be taken with or without CBD. You can sell it as a pain reducer, anti inflammatory supplement, or a nootropic-like brain enhancer.
If you think your customers would like any of those benefits then it would be wise to provide them CBG.
As more people look to use more earth-based supplements and products there is going to be increased demand for healthful supplements for all times of the day. CBG is the perfect morning supplement.
