Frequently Asked Questions: CBG Capsules
What is CBG?
CBG is the scientific abbreviation for Cannabigerol, one of over 120 naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. CBG is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, meaning it won’t create a “high” like THC does. Cannabigerol (CBG) is the precursor to all cannabinoids. Known as “The Mother of Cannabinoids”, this non-psychoactive molecule transforms into the more common cannabinoids (CBD, CBN, THC) as the hemp plant matures. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that interact with the human body through the endocannabinoid receptors located throughout the body. Cannabigerol (CBG) is a rare, minor cannabinoid found naturally in the hemp plant. CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid because most cannabis plants contain only small amounts of CBG. Some hemp plants are bred to produce higher levels of CBG early in the plant’s life cycle, limiting the production of other cannabinoids, which creates hemp that can be used to make CBG products. CBG works like other hemp products by binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors to produce varying effects on the body. If you’ve tried CBD oils and felt little to no effect, CBG oil could be the solution that fits best with your body chemistry. Because each person’s genetic makeup varies, different hemp extracts produce different results. Furthermore, it’s possible to build tolerance to other hemp products after extended use. If you’re looking for a change of pace that may work better for your body, consider trying our line of high-quality organic CBG capsules.
CBG VS. CBD
CBD and CBG both derive from cannabigerolic acid. But while they do have a lot of similarities, they are also very different cannabinoids. Starting with some of the similarities, both CBD and CBG act on the endocannabinoid system, and share a wide array of potential benefits. For example, cannabinoids have exhibited antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties in a wide array of studies. On top of that, both CBG and CBD mediate the psychotropic effect of THC, i.e. they reduce the “high”. And they have both been observed to participate in the entourage effect, magnifying the therapeutic effect of each one when administered together. An advantage that CBG has over CBD is the way it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. While CBD’s ability to directly interact with the brain’s cannabinoid receptors is limited, CBG binds directly to the CB1 and CB2 receptors and provides more direct effects to the system. Outside of their organic properties, CBG is much harder to extract and produce than CBD. Due to the scarcity of CBG in the cannabis plant, its production is a much more expensive and often more delicate process. Most companies choose to focus on the extraction of CBD isolate, making CBG products comparatively rare and much more expensive. CBD and CBG have similar effects on the body, but they achieve those effects differently. Although CBD is the more abundant of the two cannabinoids, research suggests that the effects of CBG are stronger.1 That observation is likely explained by the way the two cannabinoids interact with the receptors of the largest regulatory system in your body, the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Those receptors are CB1 and CB2. CBD has a low affinity with CB1 and CB2, meaning it interacts with these receptors indirectly without binding. CBG binds with the ECS receptors and interacts directly, so the therapeutic potential is more potent. CBG also enhances the therapeutic potential of CBD through a phenomenon known as the entourage effect, a theory that explains how the many phytocannabinoids, plant terpenes, and other components in cannabis plants interact to magnify and multiply the effects of the others.
Does CBG make you high?
Hemp-derived CBG won’t make the user high or experience any intoxicating effects. The compound that gives users the “high” effect is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is present in high levels in marijuana. Legally, hemp-derived CBG products can’t contain more than 0.3% THC. This amount of THC is not nearly enough to create a high at all. All of our hemp products contain far less than the legal limit of THC, but we also offer THC-free products too.
Is CBG Legal?
All of our CBG products contain less than .03% THC, meaning they are federally legal in all 50 states and American territories, as well as in many countries around the world.
Hemp-derived CBG has been legal on a federal level since the 2018 Farm Bill passed, which decriminalized hemp and hemp products. Legally, hemp products can’t contain more than 0.3% THC, the intoxicating compound found in cannabis.

Where can I buy CBG?
Where does CBG come from?
The acidic form of CBG, cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), is the first cannabinoid to develop in cannabis plants. As crops mature, natural plant enzymes convert CBGA to the acidic forms of CBD and THC. CBGA, CBDA, and THCA are converted to CBG, THC, and CBD as the acidic components break down from heat and UV exposure. As the CBD content of the plant increases, the CBG content declines. By the time most hemp crops are harvested, there is little CBG left to extract, most often less than one percent. Although the CBG content is considerably higher when crops are harvested before reaching full maturity, harvesting crops before they reach their peak significantly reduces the CBD content. Growers interested in elevating CBG levels of their CBD products have been investigating natural methods of cultivating plants with higher CBG content.
In the early stages of growth, hemp begins producing cannabigerolic acid (CBGa), and as the acid inside ages with the plant, it creates two byproducts: CBDa and THCa. Eventually, these acids convert into all the 120+ cannabinoids we know of. Thus, CBG is often referred to as the mother of cannabinoids.
As Cannabigerol is continually transforming into other compounds, there’s not much present at any given time during a plant’s life cycle. For this reason, its importance has been overlooked for decades, but recent research has shined a light on its potential benefits.
What are CBG capsules?
CBG is naturally formed in hemp plants and is extracted in order to activate and isolate the compound. This is done through extraction from the hemp plant and decarboxylation, or heating. The CBG extract is then added to carrier oils such as hemp oil or other oils to create a consumable CBG oil product. CBG in oil form can be taken as a tincture placed under the tongue or as a water soluble.
Should I buy CBG or CBD?
Determining which cannabinoid you should buy requires some trial and error, as your genetic makeup will affect how your body responds. We recommend beginning with one or the other, and, if you aren’t satisfied, you can always switch. However, keep in mind that all our products feature a mixture of cannabinoids with a central focus on one core cannabinoid. So, while the main ingredient in our CBG tinctures is cannabigerol, there are also healthy amounts of CBD in them as well. Similarly, our CBD tinctures contain low levels of CBG. You’ll experience the benefits of both CBD and CBG in all of our products. It’s just that, depending on the product you choose, you may or may not be getting enough of the particular cannabinoid that fits best with your body chemistry.
Is CBG the next CBD?
Although CBG has considerable therapeutic potential, it's unlikely that CBG will replace CBD as the premier cannabinoid any time soon. Most often, CBD users interested in the health and wellness potential of minor cannabinoids like CBG find considerable benefit in selecting full-spectrum (and broad-spectrum) hemp-derived CBD products that contain all the plant-based cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in the same ratio as the original plant source.
But not all CBD or CBG products are created equally. The best quality products are sourced from non-GMO hemp seeds, cultivated using natural farming practices, and tested for purity and potency. To ensure you are purchasing the highest quality products, it's important to shop with a reputable CBD company that provides access to third-party test results. You can use third-party test results to verify the CBD content, CBG content, and that the products you select are free from heavy metals, microbial contamination, and solvent residue from the extraction process.
How do I take CBG Capsules?
Our bottles recommend taking (1) capsule per serving.

What’s the difference between CBD and CBG?
Both CBG and CBD (cannabidiol) are cannabinoids that naturally occur in hemp plants. They are different compounds within the plant and have different effects on the body’s endocannabinoid system. Both CBG and CBD are non-intoxicating, meaning they won’t create any “high” effects in the user. One difference between the two is that they work with the body’s endocannabinoid system in different ways. CBD doesn’t directly bind with the ECS receptors as CBG does. CBG binding to these receptors elicits different responses than CBD. Sometimes full-spectrum CBD oil will contain traces of CBG. Hemp products that contain CBD, CBG, and other cannabinoids are known to create more effective results due to the entourage effect.
How is CBG Extracted?
Cannabis plants, including the hemp plants used to produce hemp oil, produce CBGA (cannabigerolic acid), the forerunner to the three major cannabinoid precursors: THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid), CBDA (cannabidiolic acid), and CBCA (cannabichromene acid). CBGA is broken down by enzymes in the cannabis plant and by heat and UV light to “funnel” the CBGA toward one of those three main lines. From the CBGA leftover from this conversion process, a lower amount of CBG is formed via decarboxylation. Because the CBGA is transformed during these processes, very little is left behind. Some CBG strains of cannabis have been bred to produce large amounts of CBG from the cannabigerolic acid, which comes at the expense of lower levels of the other cannabinoids. Another method to preserve high CBG content in hemp oil is to perform extraction on the plants at about 6 weeks into an 8-week flowering cycle.
What Are the Benefits of CBG oil?
The potential benefits of CBG looks very promising. CBG has more benefits than we can list here, so we definitely recommend Googling for the most up-to-date research
How Does CBG Make You Feel?
While CBG is not a stimulant, it does give a feeling of energy and focus that is similar to the effects of coffee. Users report being able to focus on one task for longer periods of time, with increased levels of productivity. A common use of CBG is as a pick-me-up which has a much more controllable serving size than coffee thanks to the use of a precise dropper. Overall, CBG effects on the perceptual level are more of an “upper” than a “downer.” CBG can also help your digestive system continue to feel like it’s functioning properly, as many of the cannabinoid receptors CBG interacts with are located in the digestive system. In addition, many users report mood support from consistent CBG usage.*
How Do You Pronounce Cannabigerol?
This cannabinoid is actually pretty easy to pronounce once you break it down. Canna-Bi-Gerol, or C-B-G. “Canna” is pronounced a bit like a slurred “can of,” as in “a canna beans.” “Bi” is pronounced with a short “i” sound, like if you dropped the “g” off the word “big.” And “gerol” is pronounced like “Gerald” minus the “d.” Put it all together, and now you can say “Canna-bi-gerol!”
CBG for sale online?
CBG is not as common as CBD due to the higher costs associated with its production. While full and broad-spectrum CBD oil products often come with CBG in their formulas, it is usually contained in trace amounts. If you are specifically looking to add CBG to your routine, our recommendation is to buy CBG from a reputable source that does third-party testing, like Simple Leaf.
Side Effects of CBG?
At this time, we can only rely on consumer reports and animal studies, but CBG seems to be well-tolerated and produce little to no side-effects. However, CBG may interact with certain prescriptions, especially medications that carry a grapefruit warning. It’s always a good idea to talk to your trusted medical professional before adding any new substance, including CBG, into your daily routine.
