The Best CBG Products: What to Look For, Where to Buy

Posted on April 11th, 2023 to CBG by

Without question, CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-impairing cannabinoid that has many unique benefits to offer compared to CBD. The list of proposed CBG benefits continues to grow as scientific communities explore cannabinoids. Naturally, this also means greater interest in CBG products among consumers who are looking for relief for things like nerve discomfort and shooting aches, poor sleep quality, physical nervousness such as “fight or flight” feelings, or GI health.

As valuable as CBG is, not every CBG product you come across will be of high enough quality to offer the most beneficial experience with the cannabinoid. In fact, you can find quite a few low-quality CBG products from not-so-reputable brands. Find out how to track down the best CBG products below.

What to Look for in the Best CBG Products

To understand why high-quality CBG products are harder to find, you must first understand the basics of CBG and where it comes from. So, what is CBG? CBG is often called the “stem cell cannabinoid” because it starts out as cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). CBGA converts into other major acidic cannabinoids as a cannabis plant matures, such as CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) or THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid). Any remaining CBGA that does not convert as the plant matures decarboxylates to become CBG. Therefore, most mature cannabis plants don’t contain much CBG at all.

For this reason, you will find quite a few CBG products that don’t contain substantial amounts of CBG and have higher levels of CBD. In short, CBG can be a more expensive cannabinoid to extract. Manufacturers either need access to a high-CBG hemp cultivar for the extraction or take extracts from immature plants that still contain high amounts of CBG. Some companies looking to profit attempt workarounds to market what looks like a CBG product but only contains a small amount of the actual cannabinoid. To make sure what you are looking at is a legitimate CBG product at a fair price, there are a few pointers to keep in mind.

Buy from a Reputable CBG Company

All cannabinoid products should be purchased from a reputable company. You can usually spot a reputable brand by how it presents itself and its products, as the best companies are looking to connect people to CBG products that offer relief and not simply make a profit. As you examine a particular brand’s website, look at:

  • How transparent is the company about plants used for extraction, extraction processes, and business location?
  • Does the company offer helpful information, such as how much CBG you should take or guidance about the effects?
  • Does the brand have a good reputation with honest customer reviews and an established name?
  • Are certificates of analysis available from a third-party lab to verify CBG presence and potency?

Look for a Company that Offers the Best Types of CBG Products

Today, the cannabinoid market is exploding due to newly revealed science about the therapeutic potential and consumer interest. Therefore, you can find CBG available in quite a few different types of products, including vapes, supposed high-CBG flower, and more. Because CBG has not been extensively researched, the effects and benefits of the cannabinoid are not well-established with all consumption methods. Further, it can be difficult to determine an accurate dose by smoking CBG flower or using a CBG vape. Therefore, it may be better to stick with brands that offer CBG oil drops or CBG capsules, which are easier to accurately dose.

Watch Out for Full-Spectrum vs CBG Isolate Products

Full-spectrum CBG products are created by extraction processes that retain more of the plant’s cannabinoids including the unheated ones such as CBGA, CBDA and THCA, as well as terpenes and other beneficial compounds. Much like CBD (cannabidiol) and other cannabinoids, CBG may be more beneficial when introduced to the endocannabinoid system with other plant compounds. CBG isolate products may not produce as profound effects and may require higher doses making it more expensive compared to full spectrum products.

Where to Buy Reputable CBG Products

Finding quality-made CBG products is exceptionally important to get the best results with the cannabinoid. Therefore, always buy your CBG products from an established brand that can meet the aforementioned criteria.
