CBD vs. CBG

We want you know the differences between CBD vs CBG and when and how to use each. We think cannabis sativa plants are amazing and want to do our best to share helpful and easy to read information. So, here’s an abbreviated response to one of our most commonly asked questions: What is the difference between CBD vs CBG?

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) has become one of the most popular healing compounds in recent years, thanks to its popular sibling, THC. Although CBD does not create a psychoactive effect, this therapeutic oil can have great benefits on the mind by working with our cannabinoid receptors in the brain (CB1 & CB2). These receptors are part of the entire endocannabinoid system responsible for controlling pain, inflammation, and neurological function. Use CBD to:

  • Improve sleep 
  • Decrease pain and inflammation
  • Help skin conditions
    • Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory for skin 
  • Relieve anxiety

CBG

Cannabigerol (CBG) is the third most-prevalent cannabinoid found in the plant. Like CBD, CBG does not induce psychopharmacological effects, meaning there is no “high” like you may get with THC. Since CBG strains are a little harder to come by, these powerful products can become expensive and limited. Acrely Farms grew a speicifc White CBG strain last year, allowing us to create our 1000mg White CBG Tincture. This new Full Spectrum tincture contains a high concentration of CBG, as well as CBD and CBC, increasing the often talked about “entourage effect.” Use CBG to:

  • Improve focus and energy
  • Reduce gut and intestinal inflammation
    • Found to help with IBS relief
  • Strong antibacterial
    • Has been shown to help with MRSA and other bacterial infections
  • Decrease neurologic symptoms 
    • Aiding in pain relief
  • Helps smooth muscle contraction
    • Increasing muscle function, allowing for a decrease in blood pressure
  • Fast acting for anxiety
