You probably know CBD ... but what about CBG? This phytocannabinoid is moving more and more into the spotlight. The also non-intoxicating cannabigerol (CBG) is a less common but very valuable cannabinoid of the hemp plant. It is now high time to get to know it!
What is CBG?
CBG, or cannabigerol, was first discovered in 1964. It is made up of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is one of the first cannabinoids to be formed in the growing cannabis plant. So CBGa is the preliminary stage. As a plant matures, its enzymes convert the CBGA (cannbigerolic acid) into a variety of other cannabinoid acids. Later, through drying, curing and heating, for example, most of the cannabinoids develop into their non-acidic versions such as CBG, CBD, CBD, etc. Cannabigerol interacts with the body's own endocannabinoid system and can therefore be used in many ways to increase well-being and maintain inner balance.
What is CBG used for?
Many processes in the body are regulated by the endocannabinoid system, which is part of our central nervous system. In times of increased stress, this system can be overwhelmed. The consequences are noticeable imbalances such as sleep disorders, skin problems or mood swings. The valuable plant substances in hemp, such as cannabigerol (CBG), mimic the effects of the body's own cannabinoids and thus help maintain inner balance. The MEDIHEMP organic hemp essence CBG extract is characterized by a harmonious spectrum of natural plant substances. This leads to high biological activity - the so-called entourage effect - and thus to high bioavailability. As a result, CBG can have a very positive effect on problem skin, sleep and mood.
What is the difference between CBD and CBG?
As mentioned earlier, CBG helps in the manufacture of CBD. Although both are cannabinoids, they are different compounds within the cannabis plant. Both CBG and CBD are not psychotropic, which means that they are not mind altering.
CBG in cosmetics
Each and every one of us dreams of beautiful skin. Cannabinoids such as CBD and CBG have become more and more super-ingredients in the wellness world in recent years in order to be able to come close to this goal of beautiful skin. You will surely find, as we do, that with such a sensitive topic as skin care, resorting to natural ingredients, such as those from the hemp plant that has been used for thousands of years, is a logical step.
CBG cannot only be taken orally in the form of a liquid CBG extract. CBG is also used in skin care and has many fans because of its effect on our largest organ. We at Deep Nature Project have used our full competence and many years of experience in the use of this millennia-old medicinal plant and its effects for internal use for the development of our first organic-certified natural cosmetics line SATIVA BEAUTY. That is why the SATIVA BEAUTY products have a CBG and CBD active ingredient complex. The CBG part of the powerful active ingredient complex has a calming and nourishing effect on your skin. For acne, CBD helps reduce the production of sebum, which typical acne drying treatments don't. It also has an antioxidant effect and can thus slow down skin aging. SATIVA BEAUTY with the CBG and CBD active ingredient complex is also well suited for sensitive skin, because it strengthens the skin barrier.
How do I dose the MEDIHEMP Organic Hemp Essence CBG Extract?
Using MEDIHEMP Organic Hemp Essence, our certified organic CBG extract, is very easy. Depending on the application recommendation, drop the CBG oil directly into your mouth. We recommend dripping it under the tongue, as this enables it to be absorbed quickly through the oral mucous membranes. The CBG drops should stay in the mouth for a minute. We recommend taking 4 drops once a day (equivalent to 0.12 ml). Our consumption recommendations for CBG oils comply with the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) guidelines for hemp foods.
We also recommend sticking to the same CBG routine for at least 30 days.
