All our CBG flowers are produced under sustainable and organic cultivation in Switzerland. Our high quality buds have a THC content of less than 1%. Thus, all CBG flowers are compliant with Swiss law and offer an exceptional experience.
Cannabigerol, also known as CBG, is another non-psychoactive cannabinoid. CBG is most commonly found in low-THC, high-CBD cannabis strains. Although cannabigerol concentrations vary between different cannabis strains, CBG contents generally tend to be low.
Are CBG flowers psychoactive?
CBG flowers are not psychoactive.
Are CBG flowers legal in Switzerland?
CBG flowers are legal like all other cannabis products as long as the THC content is below 1% in Switzerland. In Europe the THC content must not exceed 0.2%.
How do CBG and CBD differ and what are their similarities?
Affinity for cannabinoid receptors.
One difference between CBD and CBG is their affinity for cannabinoid receptors. Compared to CBG, CBD has a low affinity for cannabinoid receptors, but has a very complex effect. CBG has a high affinity for both CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, making CBG very useful in the treatment of various health conditions.
Different concentrations in the cannabis plant
Another difference is that the concentration of CBG in a cannabis plant changes, unlike CBD.
As the cannabis plant matures, the CBGA is converted into THC and CBD. This keeps the CBG concentrations extremely low. It is therefore advised to harvest the cannabis plant in its early stages to obtain a higher CBG concentration.
Cannabigerolic acid as a common origin
Both CBD and CBG have cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) as their common primary chemical compound. As the plant matures, CBGA breaks down into CBCA, THCA and CBDA, leaving a small percentage of CBGA behind. When the decarboxylation process takes place, THCA, CBDA, CBCA and CBGA break further down into THC, CBD, CBC and CBG accordingly.
CBD and CBG are both non-psychoactive.
Although both compounds interact with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), neither CBD nor CBG is psychoactive and you don’t get high from either of them.
CBD and CBG both cause an entourage effect.
To benefit from a positive interaction of the two compounds, also known as the entourage effect, it is recommended to combine CBD and CBG instead of separating both cannabinoids into isolates.
What are CBG flowers?
Cannabigerol, also known as CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is most commonly found in cannabis strains that are low in THC and high in CBD. So CBG can’t make you feel high. Unlike THC, CBG binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain. However, CBG counteracts the psychoactive properties of THC. CBG concentrations vary in different cannabis strains, but are usually extremely low, making extraction difficult.
