CBG Tinctures / Oils
Most people are familiar with the cannabinoids CBD and THC. So what separates CBG from other cannabinoids? First of all CBD and CBG, at the molecular level, have completely different chemical structures.
CBG is usually produced early in the plant’s lifecycle and then it converts into one of three known cannabinoids (CBD, THC, and CBC) later in the lifecycle through UV exposure or heat. In a way, cannabigerol is the “parent cannabinoid” to these other cannabinoids. Luckily, with modern grow tactics farmers can now yield high CBG strains before it converts to another cannabinoid.
