CBD & CBG Together? A little bit about our new 1:1 Tincture.
About CBD & CBG
While CBD is the most common and well known cannabinoid that is on the market right now (outside of THC of course) found in stores and all kinds of outlets across every city in America, there are actually many more phytocannabinoids found in hemp (cannabis). Each with their own individual makeup and properties, meaning each can be used specifically for different reasons or to target different ailments.
Though phytocannabinoids are not found evenly spread throughout the plants, there are different concentrations of each cannabinoid that is going to be found in a hemp. Our 1:1 ratio tincture of CBD and CBG, which simply means that for every one milligram of CBD there is one milligram of CBG, combines the best of two worlds together in one bottle, containing approximately 500mg of CBD and 500mg of CBG (1000mg total).
CBG, officially called Cannabigerol, is sometimes referred to as the mother of cannabinoids, as it in its acidic form (CBGA) is the precursor to both CBD and THC. In fact, CBGA can overtime transform into the precursor to many different cannabinoids such as THCA, CBDA, CBNA, CBCA, etc…, through breakdown over time, decarboxylation and various extraction methods. Yeah, that’s a lot of science stuff, we can share many other resources below for those more interested in the technical side of CBG and CBGA. CBG has
The other key component of the 1:1 tincture is of course CBD, or officially known as Cannbidiol. CBD has been very popularized over the past several years, as many have enjoyed various benefits to several types of ailments. Let’s go into more detail on what a high concentration tincture of CBD:CBG may provide.
Different cannabinoids bind or interact with your Endocannabinoid System’s receptors differently. CBD, while very interacting with the receptors, has much less binding ability to the CB1 and CB2 receptors than most cannabinoids, including CBG.
The easiest way to put it is that a profile of multiple cannabinoids, or naturally referred to as full spectrum, may actually increase the effectiveness or enhance each of the cannabinoids consumed and its interaction with your Endocannabinoid System.
An isolated cannabinoid tincture, such as a CBD Isolate, will have no entourage properties as it is the only cannabinoid present as all other have been removed. With a Broad Spectrum tincture, it can potentially have some snyergistic properties, but even with extremely low levels, it has had the THC removed via processes, which even very low levels (below the 0.3% hemp level) is still thought to vital to magnify all the cannabinoids. A Full Spectrum oil, simply is an oil that contains the natural cannabinoid and terpene profile of the plant. The Endocannabinoid System is a regulatory system, its job at the highest level is to maintain homeostasis throughout, the Entourage Effect theory essentially is that a full spectrum cannabinoid and terpene profile enhances the ECS’s ability to regulate and maintain homeostasis. Our 1:1, while containing high concentrations of CBD and CBG, also contains lower but important concentrations of CBN, CBC, THC (below 0.3%) among other cannabinoids.
Reduction in THC Psychoactive EffectsBoth CBD and CBG may help in reducing any psycho-active effects of THC, so if a patient consumes too high of levels of THC, individually either has shown to have aided in reduction of the psychoactive effects, together they may provide a more balanced and effective strategy at reducing THC induced psychoactive effects, but this can vary depending on the individual and amounts of THC.
