While the CBD or Cannabidiol oil is touted to be derived directly from the cannabis flower, the CBG Flower isn’t quite the same. CBG refers to “Cannabidiol Guided.” In the acidic form of cannabidiol, or CBG. CBG is the principal parent molecule, which allows for the manufacture of all other known Cannabidiol oils. It is believed that some of the active ingredients in marijuana are generated from CBG.
Many believe that CBD and Cannabidiol are identical, but this isn’t true. The two aren’t even close. While it is common to find both contained within a given product or marketed as being “Cannabidiol,” it is important to understand the difference between the two, especially when it comes to the benefits of using them.
While they are both non-psychoactive, they work in different ways. Some experts argue that the benefits derived from CBD may outweigh those of the non-psychoactive CBD and it is the benefits of using the two together, which should be the deciding factor for most consumers.
The two cannabigerol flowers contain no cannabidiol (the substance which provides the therapeutic benefits) and instead contain cannabidiol which has been extracted from a variety of other plants. The white big flower extract has been proven to have more beneficial effects than the other kinds of extracts. It is also considered to have more anti-oxidant benefits than red or black CBD.
Many have referred to CBD as “Hemp Flower,” but it is a cousin of the cannabis plant. Like cannabis, it produces a high level of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. However, unlike cannabis, it does not contain a substance that produces the intoxicating effects that are often associated with it.
Many consider the therapeutic benefits of the CBD to outweigh any intoxicating effects which may be found in its derivative, THC. There is some evidence that suggests that Cannabidiol may be less addictive than THC and may cause fewer side effects. Most likely the CBD has less of an intoxicating effect than THC and is considered a safer compound.
As with other pharmaceuticals, the cannabidiol contained in the CBG Flower and industrial hemp plants is not suitable for use by anyone who has abnormally low blood sugar or diabetes, is pregnant, or might be undergoing hormone replacement therapy. When used by adults, it can be used in combination with other medications, as long as they are prescribed by a doctor. Consuming the flower can also lead to an increase in appetite and weight, and may cause insomnia, depression, anxiety, and irritability. There is no known cause of this symptom.
In recent years there have been numerous studies conducted on the subject, and many studies that show the benefits of the CBG Flower are inconclusive. Many researchers state that further research is needed to confirm the benefits of the CBG Flower and that further studies should focus on THC only, and not the CBD and other phytochemicals.
