  • What is CBG?
    Cannabigerol (CBG) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. CBG is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the "high" associated with THC. CBG is often called the 'mother of all cannabinoids' because it is the precursor to other cannabinoids. As cannabis grows, almost all of the CBGA in a plant converts to either THCA or CBDA. As a result, CBG content is around 1% or less by harvest time in most strains. However, thanks to advanced selective breeding, we now have access to strains that produce CBG in high concentrations. CBG is believed to interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates various physiological processes such as mood, appetite, sleep, and immune function. The cannabinoid has been researched for its potential therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain-relieving), neuroprotective, and antimicrobial effects. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of CBG.
  • How is CBG different from CBD?
    CBG (cannabigerol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but they have some key differences: Chemical Structure: CBG and CBD have different chemical structures. As a result, they affect the endocannabinoid system (ECS) differently. Concentration: CBG is far rarer than CBD in hemp and marijuana plants because the cannabinoid converts naturally into other compounds. CBD is the second most abundant cannabinoid; however, genetically modified CBG strains allow cultivators to produce flower with high concentrations of CBG. Interaction with Receptors: CBG and CBD interact with the ECS differently. CBG is believed to interact with both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS, albeit with low affinity. On the other hand, CBD has a more complex mechanism of action, as it does not directly bind to CB1 or CB2 receptors but modulates their activity and interacts with other receptors in the body. Potential Effects: While CBG and CBD are being studied for their potential therapeutic properties, they may have different effects. CBG has been suggested to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, neuroprotective, and antimicrobial effects, while CBD is commonly associated with its potential benefits for anxiety, pain relief, and epilepsy. Research: CBD has been more extensively researched compared to CBG.
  • Can you fail a drug test from CBG?
    While CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, it's important to note that using CBG products, like any cannabinoid product, could potentially result in a failed drug test for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis. The reason is that full spectrum CBG extract (like what we offer at Bhuvi Farm) contains trace amounts of THC. While the content is below the legal limit in the US of 0.3%, using full spectrum CBG products daily could result in a compounding effect and trigger a positive drug test for THC.
  • Does CBG get you high?
    No, CBG is non-psychoactive. Even in large amounts, the compound doesn’t have the affinity to bind with CB receptors in a way that delivers a high.
  • What are the benefits of using CBG products?
    While scientific studies on CBG are still limited and further research is needed to understand the cannabinoid, some of the potential benefits associated with CBG may include: Anti-inflammatory properties Analgesic properties Neuroprotective properties Antimicrobial properties Gastrointestinal benefits Mood and anxiety support Research on CBG is still in its early stages, and more studies are needed to fully understand its potential benefits, safety profile, and appropriate uses. Therefore, CBG products should be used cautiously, and it's always recommended to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before using CBG or any other cannabinoid product, especially if you have any underlying health conditions or are taking medication.
  • Why is CBG called “the mother of all cannabinoids?”
    CBG is often referred to as "the mother of all cannabinoids" or "mother cannabinoid" because it is the natural precursor to other cannabinoids. This means that before THC, CBD, CBC, and other cannabinoids are naturally produced during the plant lifecycle, they begin as CBG. The cannabinoid is synthesized through enzymatic reactions that convert CBG into other cannabinoids as the plant matures. Enzymes within the plant break down CBG into different cannabinoids by converting it into THC, CBD, or CBC, depending on the specific enzymes involved and the environmental conditions.
  • Is CBG legal to use and purchase?
    Yes, CBG is 100% legal in the United States as long as the THC levels in the product are 0.3% or lower. All our products are legal in 50 states, and Bhuvi Farms is a licensed hemp producer.
  • Where does Bhuvi Farm source its CBG?
    All our products are made with the hemp we grow at Bhuvi Farms. From seed to sale, we handle every step of ensuring our customers have safe products. Buy your cannabinoids directly from the source with Bhuvi Farm!
  • How is CBG extracted from the hemp plant?
    There are many ways to extract cannabinoids from raw hemp flower. However, we use the purest, safest way possible, free from solvents or dangerous chemicals. Our extraction process is done using heat and pressure, ensuring no chemicals are left behind, lowering the quality of the final product.
  • How do I use CBG products?
    CBG Oil – Use CBG tincture daily by dropping 1 serving under your tongue and allowing the oil to absorb into your bloodstream. Increase your dosage as necessary. CBG Topicals – Rub a liberal amount of cream or roll-on directly to the source of pain or soreness. Make sure your skin is clean and free from any cuts or lacerations.
  • Can CBG products help with anxiety?
    The ECS is a complex cell-signaling system in the body that regulates various physiological processes, including mood, stress, and anxiety. CBG is believed to interact with both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS located in the brain and central nervous system. Some preclinical studies in animal models have shown that CBG may have anxiolytic effects, potentially reducing anxiety-like behaviors. However, these studies are limited, and more research is needed to understand the effects of CBG on anxiety in humans.
  • Can CBG products help with pain management?
    While more research is required, some preclinical studies suggest that CBG has pain-relieving properties that could improve mobility and the overall quality of life for people with pain. Check out this meta-analysis of the research titled "Novel CBG Derivatives Can Reduce Inflammation, Pain and Obesity" for more information.
  • Can CBG products help with inflammation?
    Again, more research is needed, but our limited studies look promising. Researchers believe CBG could have anti-inflammatory properties, especially regarding IBS (inflammatory bowel disease.)
  • Can CBG products help with sleep?
    Many companies will claim that CBG has sedative properties or can help make you fall asleep. However, no concrete research suggests the mechanism or results in patients in a clinical environment. Furthermore, while CBG does show promise in possessing properties that can help people get better sleep, we haven't published any significant peer-reviewed studies on CBG and sleep. A study is currently being conducted with 100 veterans suffering from sleeping disorders. Their sleep is monitored using a Fitbit before and after taking 25-50mg of CBG daily. We will have more information on this study as soon as we have the results.
  • Are there any side effects associated with CBG products?
    Most people using CBG products don't experience side effects; however, experts believe they are possible. Below is a list of possible adverse effects associated with CBG: Dizziness Changes in appetite Diarrhea Sedation Headaches Dry mouth While these side effects are rare, taking CBG in moderation is essential when trying it for the first time or using a new product.
  • How long does it take for CBG products to work?
    The results of CBG products are typically observed over a period of time. We suggest using CBG daily for the best results. You may experience the effect immediately or notice them slowly as the cannabinoid builds in your ECS.
  • How should I store my CBG products?
    Always store cannabis products out of the reach of children in a dry place away from direct sunlight in an air-tight container.
  • Can I take CBG products if I'm currently taking medication?
    Consult with a doctor before using CBG if you are on medication.
  • How do I know how much CBG to take?
    We recommend starting with a low dose of 5-10mg and working your way up to higher concentrations of CBG. Most people find their ideal amount between 25-75mg, but everyone processes cannabinoids differently.
  • Do Bhuvi Farm's CBG products contain any THC?
    Yes, our products contain small amounts of THC, under the legal limit of 0.3% set by the 'Farm Bill.'
