The Best CBG Oil: What to Look For, Where to Buy
Posted on April 11th, 2023 to CBG
CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-intoxicating, therapeutic cannabinoid that can help with a long list of ailments due to its properties and benefits. From supporting sleep to relieving nerve discomfort and physical worry such as “fight or flight” feelings, CBG has many benefits to offer because it works differently in the body compared to CBD and CBDA. Therefore, many people looking to cannabinoids for health benefits are interested in trying CBG oil.
Unfortunately, high-quality CBG oil can be a bit harder to find than something like CBD oil. CBG is not the most abundant cannabinoid in mature cannabis or hemp, which makes it both valuable and prone to mislabeling by non-reputable companies looking to profit. Below we will cover what you need to know about finding the best CBG oil, where to buy CBG products, and more.
What to Look for in the Best CBG Oil Products
The proposed benefits of CBG are pretty profound. While the cannabinoid shares qualities with other cannabinoids that make it interesting as a therapeutic agent, CBG is also in a class of its own with certain mechanisms of action and positive effects. However, CBG is also considered a minor cannabinoid because a mature plant does not contain a lot of CBG unless that plant was specifically bred to contain higher levels of CBG.
It is not uncommon to find CBG oils that contain only fractional amounts of legitimate CBG and higher levels of CBD because CBG is not so abundant. Therefore, you do have to use some discernment when shopping for CBG products. Take a look at a few important factors to consider when researching a specific brand of CBG oil.
Does the Company Offer a Clear Certificate of Analysis?
A certificate of analysis (COA) is a document provided by a third-party laboratory that shows important information about a cannabinoid-based product, such as:
- Cannabinoid analysis indicating in mg/mL the amount of each cannabinoid that is present.
- Terpene content
- Whether the product contained contaminants like solvents, pathogens, heavy metals, or pesticides
The best CBG product companies make it easy for you to review a COA for each batch of products they have for sale. Be sure to look for this document available on a product page and make sure the cannabinoid analysis shows the actual CBG concentration and matching batch record on the product. Healer publishes every COA online and includes a QR code to the COA on each box.
Do the CBG Products Come with Usage Instructions?
There are a range of CBG products with varying degrees of quality and methods for using them. With so many choices, it can make getting the correct CBG dose tricky. But, doing so is essential for maximizing health benefits and avoiding potential side effects. Most products include brief, ambiguous instructions regarding how much to take that often leave the consumer with more questions than answers.
Because Healer prioritizes education, all Healer CBG product packaging includes basic usage instructions and each product comes with a step-by-step Usage Guide booklet to help you find the best results and your optimal dosage. Furthermore, Healer provides videos featuring leading cannabis clinician Dr. Dustin Sulak, to help you every step of the way, especially if you are new to hemp products. However, sometimes you just need to speak with someone. For those times, free product consultations from trained staff are available during regular business hours.
How are the Hemp CBG Plants Grown and Extracted?
Top cannabinoid-based product manufacturers are transparent about how they grow their hemp plants. For example, at Healer, we openly share that we use certified organic hemp grown in Maine specifically for our CBG oil drops. This is important to look for in a high-quality brand for a few reasons. For one, you want to make sure you are getting CBG derived from certified organic hemp and from other growing best practices. Two, the quality of the end product is directly related to the quality of the plant the extracts were taken from and the process by how it is extracted.
Where to Buy CBG Oil Products
Because finding reputable CBG oil can be so difficult, we do recommend buying CBG oil from Healer CBD. You can spend a great deal of time and money tracking down a legitimate product, and, if you’re not careful, you can end up with CBG oil that is not what it is labeled as at all.
At Healer, we go the extra mile to make sure our CBG oil gives you what you expect. Each bottle is formulated with a 6:1 ratio of CBG and CBGA for the best results. The hemp we use is organically certified and selected by Dr. Dustin Sulak for its beneficial properties and our products are batch tested by an unbiased third-party lab.
