CBG is an excellent anti-inflammatory cannabinoid and may help diminish breakouts and reduce redness in acne-prone skin. It is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants can help reduce visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, skin dullness, and ruddy tone. Our CBG Cream is an excellent option to aid in skin care and contains 0.00% THC.

How are CBG and CBD similar?
CBG is known as the “precursor” of all cannabinoids, as the acidic form of CBG, cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), helps to form all other cannabinoids. Because of this, CBG is found in higher amounts in younger cannabis plants before CBD and THC are derived from CBGA in older plants.
In most strains of cannabis, CBG only makes up 1% of the total cannabinoids, compared to CBD, which makes up approximately 25%. Due to the difficulty of isolating CBG, cannabis-based products containing CBG can be rare and expensive. However, CBG has a lot of potential benefits to offer users.
CBD is the most common cannabinoid. Its rapid rise in popularity can be attributed to a driving need from health-conscious patients seeking a more natural and gentler approach to drugs and medication.
CBD is found in reasonably abundant amounts in cannabis, and due to this, there is a large variety of CBD-based products available for purchase. These products include CBD oils with CBD extract mixed with a type of carrier oil, like MCT; CBD tinctures; creams; ointments; capsules; and vapes.
All cannabinoids, including CBG and CBD, interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) within the body. The ECS is a complex cell-signaling system that works to restore balance by regulating many body processes. Cannabinoid receptors are part of the ECS and are found throughout the body, immune and nervous system, and brain.
When cannabinoids bind to these receptors, researchers believe it enhances the function of specific neurotransmitters, which play a role in sleep regulation, appetite, mood, and pain relief.
