Our CBG buds contain 12%-14% CBG with frosty, silver trichomes covering the calyx. These buds have a citrusy and hoppy aroma with hints of chamomile and piney fresh mountain air.
What's the difference between CBD and CBD?
CBG stands for cannabigerolic acid which is the seeds converted into tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), the precursor of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA).
CBG is the parent molecule of THC and CBD. CBD and CBG, unlike THC, are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high. They occur in different concentrations in the plant and have unique chemical structures.
Isolated, each cannabinoid has its own beneficial properties, many that overlap, but when CBD and CBG are taken together, the benefits of the CBD last longer and are more pronounced. CBG also amplifies the other cannabinoids in full spectrum products.
Trim/cure: Trim was acceptable, a little leafy but not bad by any stretch, and the cure is good. The bud seems a little dry, but since I use a dry herb vaporizer, this isn't a problem for me. If in doubt, drop it in with a moisture control pack to partially rehydrate it if you feel it needs it.
Smell/taste: It smells very faint. Not loud at all. Smells mostly like a clean Pine scent, almost like a faint whiff of pinesol. Semi floral. The taste was very mild and clean. I was vaping using my CFX through a dry bong, I’d imagine smoking this would taste like nothing.
Effects: after a full oven in my CFX, I had a mild body effect going on. It was clear and clean feeling, though mostly underwhelming. My head felt clear, no cloudiness or sedation. There's not a lot to say about CBG flower's effects by themselves.
However, after taking time to sit with the CBG effects and note them, I loaded up my CFX with a bowl full of Elektra and ripped that till it was fully extracted. Oh wow. That mild clear body buzz really intensified the Elektra’s body effects and I got some significant relief from the chronic pain in my shoulder. I had a bit of mood elevation where I felt happier and more prone to laughing, but not like with THC. I felt very clear minded, and my body felt like it was full of a clear light.
CBG strains, at least right now, are underwhelming on their own, but really blend nicely with CBD bud. I don’t have any THC bud to blend it with to see what that’s like, but I’d imagine it would enhance the experience in a similar way.
Gret smell and taste. Very deep body relaxation! This is very valuable to someone with extreme chronic pain.
It's just a bit too pricey. Eventully these CBG strains will be affordable when the hype fades off.
Let me start by telling you how this stuff tastes: unlike any hemp you've had so far. I tasted lime, lemon, pepper, hops, dates and fuel. On the back end I tasted dill. YMMV.
Effects are very subtle but very pronounced when you pair it with your favorite strain. I did two tests one alone and one mixed with another strain. When I did it alone I was nonplussed. I did feel like some of the pain in my back subsided by 20% or so and I got a nice, warm calm feeling but it was mostly a body sensation. After a good 1.5 hours I had a regular CBD strain of flower. WOW. I would say CBG is an amplifier (longer and stronger) for other strains as I had very similar experiences when I mixed cbg and lifter. The lifter felt much, much stronger and it lasted about 50% longer.
I would def. buy this again
