What to know about smoking CBG flower

So you’ve heard about CBD, but what about CBG? The two share many properties and both are cannabinoids, but with different effects. CBG, aka cannabigerol, is one of the over 100 cannabinoids in hemp and cannabis plants.  Although CBG has been around since the 1960s, it hasn’t received as much mainstream attention as CBD and is less researched. That said, there are still plenty of promising results from those who have used CBG flower. Keep reading to learn more about what CBG flower can do to your body and mind.



CBG Flower Can Be Energizing and Calming

Smoking CBG flower may have a simultaneously energizing and calming effect on those who imbibe. While it affects everyone differently, most people report that smoking small doses of CBG flower gives them a little boost to power through the rest of their day, but not in the way that caffeine does.

Caffeine often leaves people slightly anxious and a little jittery; CBG, on the other hand, may offer increased feelings of alertness without the jumpy aftereffects. In fact, many customers use Orange Cream CBG Flower first thing in the morning in lieu of coffee.


CBG Flower May Stimulate Your Appetite

Studies show that CBG may act as a natural appetite stimulant, which could make it useful for those who need to increase their caloric intake.[1]  CBG is starting to be used in medical settings to help patients increase their appetites and promote more regular eating. By stimulating CB1 receptors, CBG may help increase ghrelin hormones, which can have a direct effect on hunger.


CBG Flower Could Help You Sleep

Those looking for a better night’s sleep may turn to CBG flower to do to the trick. By binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBG may help relax both your muscles and your mind to promote a more restful sleep. The Delta8 Infused Cinderella CBG (Indoor) Hemp Flower strain is particularly known for being relaxing.


CBG Flower May Help with Pain Relief and Inflammation

CBG is said to be helpful for everything from migraines to easing muscle soreness. This is because of how CBG flower acts as a GABA reuptake inhibitor, which means it could have a positive impact on neuropathic and inflammatory pain. People use CBG flower for its anti-inflammatory effects and for pain relief for a variety of conditions including hypertension, glaucoma, and more.
