With so many oils and supplements available on the market today, it can be a tricky task to know which one to go for. We've put together this handy guide that will break down everything you need to know about CBG oil before you place that order.

Alongside CBD and CBN, CBG is fast finding its place as an everyday supplement to support well-being. But what is CBG oil? This high-quality product certainly has plenty going for it, but it's a relatively new feature on the market. Let's take a look at why this could be the cannabinoid oil for you.

What Is CBG Oil?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of dozens of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. While smoking and vaping are just a couple of ways you can enjoy the cannabinoids in cannabis, the introduction of cannabinoid oils has seen a considerable surge in popularity over recent years. Because of their high concentration of key components, ease of use, and handy size, many people use them everyday as a morning supplement or meal accompaniment.

The prominent cannabinoids we've come to know are THC and CBD. However, many others are being harnessed for their potential effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS)—a series of receptors in the body that interact with internally produced and plant-derived cannabinoids. CBG is no different, and is appearing more and more frequently in various cannabinoid preparations.

Our CBG oil is highly concentrated and contains a quality blend of cannabinoids and terpenes, including medium amounts of CBD. This is to make use of the entourage effect—an occurrence where different compounds synergise to boost their impact on the ECS.

What Are The Effects Of CBG?

CBG is not psychoactive, meaning there is no high associated with ingesting CBG oil. Like most supplements, CBG oil is generally taken as a means to support a healthy lifestyle. As with all cannabinoids, CBG interacts with the ECS to some degree. This system has numerous functions, with the potential to influence memory, learning, digestion, metabolism, and more. Once ingested, CBG oil will begin to take effect in 30–60 minutes, with the effects lasting several hours.

While there is ongoing research into the effects of CBG and other cannabinoids, there is not enough information to say that it has a therapeutic impact at this time. But its support of the ECS is undeniable.

How Cbg Oil Is Made

How CBG Oil Is Made

Using industry-leading techniques, CBG oil's journey begins with the milling of mature hemp plants. This process is carried out to harness all of the cannabinoid, terpene, and flavonoid-rich leaves and flowers.

These phytochemicals are then extracted using advanced supercritical CO₂. This is a method that uses precise heat and pressure settings to bind CO₂ to cannabinoids and other compounds, isolating them for further purification and filtration. The extract is then combined with a hemp seed oil carrier and bottled, but not before undergoing thorough quality checks. With each batch independently tested, you can administer CBG oils with complete confidence and peace of mind.

How Do You Use Cbg Oil?

How Do You Use CBG Oil?

There are several different ways you can use CBG oil. As the bottle has a handy dropper, many users tend to administer a few drops sublingually (under the tongue), holding the liquid in their mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. Many state that this is the quickest way to use oils and activate their effect on the ECS.

Other ways to use CBG oil include adding it to food and drink. Adding a few drops to a salad or even a cold glass of juice can be an easy way to consume the oil, especially if you are not keen on dropping directly onto or under your tongue. It is worth noting that CBG oil is not suitable for cooking. Heat can lead to the cannabinoids and terpenes being destroyed. As a guideline, 3–4 CBG drops should be taken up to three times a day.

Which Cbg Oil Percentage Is Best?

Which CBG Oil Percentage Is Best?

There is no definitive answer to this question. Instead, it all comes down to personal preference and needs. It is also worth considering how much CBD you want to go along with your CBG. Oils are currently available in concentrations of 2.5% CBG + 2.5% CBD, and 5% CBG + 2.5% CBD. However, as a rule of thumb for any new supplement or oil, it may be best to start with the lower-strength product first. That way, if you want to increase your dose over time, you have the option to do so.

Whichever concentration you choose, you can rest assured that you’re getting the highest-quality product available. Not only do our CBG oils contain key cannabinoids and terpenes, but they are also full of plant protein, antioxidants, and omega fatty acids—all of which are essential to support well-being.

Combining Cbg With Other Cannabinoids

As CBG is not a psychoactive cannabinoid, there is no chance of getting high when using it, which means you can look to use it alongside other supplements and oils. Of course, dosing recommendations will vary from person to person, so it may be worth trying CBG oil on its own before introducing other cannabinoids (aside from CBD).

Ultimately, you can safely experiment with other cannabinoid preparations alongside your CBG oil. You may find that CBG oil works well alongside CBN oil, or even with your favourite THC-rich strain. Just record your findings and take it slow to find the best combination for you.

How To Store Cbg Oil

How to Store CBG Oil

Storing CBG oil could not be a more straightforward task. As it is a perishable product, we recommend keeping your CBG oil in a cool, dark place such as a fridge. This will allow the oil to maintain its quality. Just be sure to give the bottle a shake before each use. With a shelf life of six months, you'll have plenty of time to make the most of your CBG oil before having to place another order.

Is Cbg Oil Safe?

Our CBG oil is free from harmful and harsh chemicals. Every batch is independently tested and goes through thorough quality checks. With only the best ingredients, you can rest assured you are getting the finest quality available. Research is still underway surrounding the effects of CBG. However, there are no reported side effects among those who ingest it.

Since our CBG oil contains some CBD, it is worth noting the (mild) side effects associated with this cannabinoid. Again, it's about finding a balance and dose that works for you. Those taking prescription medication should consult their doctor before taking CBG/CBD oil as it may potentially disrupt the metabolism of certain types of medication.
