How to Take CBG Oil 101
Hemp, CBD, THC, and now… CBG? What is this new strand, and why is it becoming popular in products? Here’s what you need to know before you learn how to take CBG oil:
What is CBG?
Like the other three components, CBG is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Without getting too into the science, CBG is believed to be the precursor to other cannabinoids and therefore enhances the properties of CBD, THC, etc.
What is the difference between CBD and CBG?
Other than a different chemical structure, both components target the same receptors in the body. In particular, both can also help with feelings of anxiety. However, CBG has a more direct pathway, whereas CBD has an indirect path. While both connect to the same receptors, CBG is more effective and potentially faster.
What can CBG oil help?
There have been promising studies conducted on CBG’s effects. A 2018 study showed that CBG has anti-inflammatory properties and therefore can help reduce pain. Research also shows CBG has high potential in helping reduce pain and symptoms for those with gastrointestinal conditions such as IBS, IBD, and Chron’s disease. Its multifunctionality makes it perfect for anyone, from athletes to those with office jobs.
How is CBG used?
Now to answer the question you came here for. CBG, like CBD, comes in capsules and tinctures (oil droppers). The latter tends to be more popular because it can easily be mixed into snacks, beverages, or other products. For example, some people prefer to use CBG and CBD oil. Some brands, like Goliath Nutripower, make it easy for users with their Full Spectrum Oil including both cannabinoids.
What is the most effective way to use CBG?
While there are several methods of using CBG, the most effective way is by taking it sublingually. This way, it bypasses the digestive system and goes straight into the bloodstream, as opposed to capsules and gummies. A few quick drops under the tongue will be most convenient and efficient!
What is the best CBG oil dosage?
Every product will have its own recommended dosage that should be labeled on the product packaging or website. For our Focus CBD/CBG oil, we suggest taking one drop under the tongue and holding it for 90 seconds before swallowing. It’s also excellent to add into protein shakes and smoothies!
