CBG gummies are one of the best types of CBG products on the market today. They typically have a long shelf life, are very easy to package and transport, are pleasant tasting, and often come in fun shapes. Although they do not carry as strong of an effect as other product types (such as concentrates), their ease of use, taste/smell, and packaging make them very appealing for many individuals.
What is CBG?
Cannabidiol (CBG) is one of the naturally-occurring compounds found in cannabis that comprises up to 40% of the plant. It belongs to a group known as cannabinoids which act upon specific receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain; it’s this action that provides the plant its healing benefits. CBG products typically contain negligible levels of THC – which means they do not provide a psychotropic (‘high’) effect — and are therefore legal in most markets.
Cannabis vs. hemp: what’s the difference?
Although cannabis and hemp both come from the same species of plant (Cannabis Sativa), there is a difference between them; namely, that cannabis contains high levels of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), whereas hemp naturally has much lower levels. Although technically illegal to grow in most countries due to its high THC content, it’s allowed for oilseed or fiber production under strict government supervision, making hemp-derived CBG products 100% legal worldwide!
What are CBG gummies?
CBG gummies are very similar to their ‘candy’ counterparts, the only difference being that they contain CBG and no psychoactive THC. This is made possible by extracting high-quality CBG isolate from industrial hemp. Gummies come in a variety of shapes and sizes — typically fruit-flavored — and can be customized upon request with different flavors or cannabinoid profiles, allowing users to titrate their dose of CBG precisely.
Why use CBG gummies?
CBG gummies and other edibles provide a very pleasant alternative to the typical ingestion methods for cannabidiol: smoking and vaporizing. They’re also much easier to consume than other types of products such as concentrates or capsules; they taste great; and best of all, they’re fun to eat!
Best CBG gummies and edibles are best for:
People who want a long-lasting effect: edibles take longer to digest than other products such as concentrates or capsules; this allows them to provide a much stronger effect that lasts several hours — usually between 4 and 6 — which can last up to 24 hours in some cases. Those desiring more potent CBG therapeutic effects should consider using CBG gummies.
People who don’t like the smoking or vaping experience: whether you dislike the potential smell of smoke, respiratory irritation caused by hot smoke, cost of vape cartridges, or simply find it less pleasant overall – there are many reasons why people choose not to smoke cannabis when treating their medical conditions. Instead, they look for alternative ingestion methods such as CBG gummies and edibles.
People who want a fun way to take CBG: let’s face it – most of us started using cannabis because we wanted to have a good time! Unfortunately, that can be hard when one isn’t feeling well or unable to partake in conventional social situations. Thanks to their sardine-like packaging, however, CBG gummies allow you to take your medicine just about anywhere without causing trouble; best of all, they’re delicious!
People who need discretion: many people are forced to live with chronic pain or other conditions discreetly due to the negative stigma attached by society. Even though these symptoms may not be socially embarrassing, some feel the need for privacy; CBG gummies are the best for this!
Please note that with all edibles it is best to start low and go slow. Titrating one’s dosage ensures that you obtain optimal therapeutic relief without unwanted side effects or adverse reactions.
