What is CBG Tincture?

Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a cannabinoid. CBG is similar to CBD, which is also a cannabinoid. They are found in the hemp plant as naturally occurring chemical compounds. Neither of these compounds is intoxicating and will not give you a high. CBG works similarly to CBD in that they mimic endocannabinoids that are found in the body. These are called CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBG bonds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body. The brain, lungs, and vascular system are the areas of the body where CB1 receptors are found. However, the CB2 receptors are more commonly found in the immune system, reproductive system, and bones. As a result, CBG offers many beneficial effects on the body.

A CBG tincture is CBG in the form of oil with alcohol mixed in it. The alcohol acts as a preservative and allows for a higher amount of CBG in the product. A tincture typically comes in a bottle with a dropper making it easy to control the dose. A tincture is a quick way to feel the effects of CBG and is ideal for a new user. Typically, you can feel the effects within 45 minutes of using it. Tinctures do not have a scent, so you can use them without having to smell them. This is ideal for those that do not like the smell of CBG.
