While cannabinoids have been around for a good long while, it wasn’t until recently that CBG strains have been developed and made available for consumer use. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill making hemp and the cannabinoids within legal to grow, it’s now possible to gather enough of the small amounts of CBG within hemp to actually be usable. CBG hemp flower is considered the “mother” of cannabinoids because it’s where all other strains of cannabinoids are synthesized from. If you’re interested in giving it a try, let’s look at the most popular CBG flower strains.
Jack Frost CBG
The Jack Frost strain gets its name from the frosty trichomes that cover the flower. These trichomes contain about 13% CBG and feature a sweet flavor terpene profile and a hoppy, earthy smell that becomes a crisp pine and zesty citrus when lit. Jack Frost will help you mellow out and melt away the stress and anxiety of your day.
Super Glue CBG
Of the most popular CBG flower strains, super glue CBG is by far the strangest looking of them by sporting purple-green buds and orange hairs. Don’t be put off by its appearance, however, as this flower is covered in thick trichomes that include a lovely taste and a hefty 22% CBG. This is a great option if you find yourself needing a heavier dose to really relax and wind down at the end of the day.
If you know your THC, you may be familiar with “The White” variant of cannabis. This is a CBG variant of The White that produces large frosty flowers containing a good 20% CBG in place of the THC. As per the Farm Bill, White CBG has less than 0.3% THC because otherwise the plant would have not been considered hemp. White CBG sports a creamy-lemon smell and an equally potent taste.
Lemon Cream Diesel CBG
As the name suggests, Lemon Cream Diesel has a strong but sweet citrus taste most akin to lemons. This strain is popular for not only being highly relaxing but offering a decent buzz throughout your body without intoxicating you like THC. In fact, rather than putting your mind in a haze, consumers have found Lemon Cream Diesel to help them focus on their tasks.
