You may have heard of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, which has gained popularity over the recent years for its array of health benefits. But have you heard of CBG?
CBG, also known as cannabigerol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant and it has been gaining popularity in the world of wellness. If you are a vaper or someone who is curious about the potential advantages of CBG, then you may want to know more about its usage. So, let's explore further.
What is CBG?
CBG is a non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp plant. It is often referred to as the "mother of all cannabinoids" because it's the precursor to other well-known cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC. CBG is found in very low levels in most cannabis strains, making it a rare and valuable compound. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that CBG is the parent of both CBD and THC - without this compound, CBD and THC wouldn’t exist.
CBG interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, which helps to regulate a range of functions such as mood, sleep, and pain. When CBG is inhaled through vaping, it binds to the cannabinoid receptors in the body, helping to enhance the effects of CBD by potentially increasing its bioavailability and potency.
What is CBD + CBG used for?
CBD and CBG can be used together to potentially enhance the benefits of each other. While CBD is primarily used for reducing anxiety and improving sleep, CBG is known for supporting the nervous and digestive system. When used together, CBD and CBG may support the entourage effect, which suggests that the combination of multiple cannabinoids can be more effective than isolated cannabinoids. This effect may lead to a more comprehensive and potentially more beneficial vaping experience when CBD and CBG are used together.
By binding to the two types of cannabinoid receptors in our body, CBG works to support our body’s endocannabinoid system. CBG supports optimal regulation in the body by mimicking these naturally occurring endocannabinoid compounds. CBG is safe to consume even at high doses.
CBG can also be used to ensure a smooth feeling inhale on a high strength CBD e-liquid, and prevents discolouration and crystallising over time.
In summary, CBG is an additional part of the hemp plant which is a pre-cursor to CBD. CBG offers broadly the same effect as CBD, but when the two elements are taken together, they can offer a stronger effect then taking just CBD isolate.
Is CBG psychoactive?
CBG exhibits zero psychoactive effects, which means ingesting or inhaling CBG will not get you “high” and will not alter your perception in anyway. This is because CBG does not bind to the same receptors in the brain as THC, which are responsible for the psychoactive effects. CBG also has a very low affinity for these receptors, further reducing the chances of any psychoactive effects.
Is CBG legal?
In the UK there are no laws that govern CBG specifically. The most important thing that determines whether a CBD product is legal is the percentage of THC it contains. CBD is legal in the UK, provided it is derived from an industrial hemp strain that is approved by the UK and contains less than 0.2% THC.
It is important to purchase any CBD or CBG product from companies that provide clear reporting on how much THC their products contain.

How can CBG be used to enhance your e-liquid experience?
CBG can enhance your vaping experience by promoting a sense of relaxation and calmness, making it more enjoyable and satisfying. CBG is also known for its potential to support both the digestive and nervous system, providing an additional benefit to those who are looking to improve their overall wellbeing. By incorporating CBG into your vaping routine, you can enjoy the benefits of this powerful cannabinoid while indulging in a pleasurable experience.
What is the difference between CBG and CBD?
It all comes down to the way in which the two compounds interact with our body. CBD works indirectly with our endocannabinoid system by interacting with our CB1 and CB2 receptors and “encouraging” them to receive our body’s own messages. CBG interacts directly by binding to the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in our bodies.
Is CBG better than CBD?
Both cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate various bodily functions such as mood, sleep, and pain.
CBD is commonly used for promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety and stress, and alleviating pain and inflammation. CBG on the hand, is used to potentially address digestive issues, glaucoma, and also inflammation to name a few.
While CBG and CBD share some similarities, they are both distinct compounds with their own unique properties and potential benefits. Ultimately, the choice between CBG and CBD depends on your specific needs and preferences, and they can both be useful in their own unique ways.
