Everything You Need to Know About CBG (Cannabigerol)

What exactly is CBG or Cannabigerol?

Science has identified over a hundred distinct cannabinoids, with many more being discovered as cannabis research continues to expand. As new cannabis terms enter our lexicon on a daily basis, you may have heard of Bulk CBG Distillate, which is actively competing for attention alongside THC and CBD.

Cannabigerol, or CBG, has generated a lot of buzz in the cannabis industry in recent years due to its novel properties (more on that later) as well as the fact that it’s a new cannabinoid for consumers and medical users to experiment with. In more mature markets, new blended products with CBG, THC, and other minor cannabinoids are hitting the shelves, promising new experiences and purported benefits.

What Exactly is CBG?

One of the most intriguing aspects of cannabigerol is that CBGA, the acidic form of CBG before decarboxylation, is the precursor molecule for the two most abundant phytocannabinoids in cannabis and hemp, THCA and CBDA (Nachnani et al., 2021). There’s a reason it’s been dubbed “the mother of all cannabinoids”: it truly is, according to cannabis molecular chemistry. CBG Distillate Wholesale is also known as a “minor” or “rare” cannabinoid, and even high-Bulk CBG Distillate cannabis strains produce much less of it when compared to high-THC or high-CBD plants. It wasn’t until recently that this previously unknown cannabinoid, previously known only to scientists and extraction experts, became a hot topic for businesses. The compound’s obscurity is rapidly fading these days, as the arms race between cannabis companies to provide new and distinct experiences to customers, particularly in mature markets, shows no signs of abating.

There is still much to learn about CBG Distillate Wholesale, but preliminary research suggests that it is one of the most promising new cannabinoids for medical use, with properties that may aid in a wide range of future therapies. According to the same article, Bulk CBG Distillate may become medically useful for everything from neurological disorders like Huntington’s Disease to multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s, as well as antibacterial properties that help patients with inflammatory bowel disease. CBG is promising but largely untested in this setting, as it is elsewhere. Another study on three synthetic CBG derivatives (HUM-223, HUM-233, and HUM-234, also known as maleic acid salts) found that they had analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties (Kogan et al., 2021). In the same study, HUM-234 specifically prevented obesity in field mice fed a high-fat diet. This suggests that CBG Oil Wholesale may even be useful in the development of derivatives that aid in the treatment of obesity—imagine that! Even though almost no commercial cannabis businesses will be looking for something as specific as HUM-234 ratioed with other cannabinoids, we can be certain that the use of plant-derived CBG will expand into a wide range of medicinal and recreational applications.

The Effects of Any Given Hemp or Cannabis

The effects of any given hemp or cannabis product are what many purchasers care about at the end of the day, and CBG offers a wide range of possible effects. While CBG is not a psychotropic cannabinoid (it does not get you “high” like THC), it does activate what the Kogan study refers to as “classic” CB1 and CBR2 cannabinoid receptors in our brain (Kogan et al., 2021). Anecdotally, many people report that CBG Distillate Wholesale has a stronger effect than CBD isolate-based products, which has certainly fueled demand. There are numerous articles on the internet claiming that CBG is the perfect remedy for everything from energy enhancement to sleep to appetite stimulation, but businesses and prospective customers should exercise caution when making or believing such broad-stroke effect-based assumptions word for word. CBG affects everyone differently, especially when combined with other cannabinoids or taken in certain mood-stimulating situations. This means that businesses should proceed with caution when it comes to CBG marketing, and they should keep their messaging on a high level.

While we’ve mentioned it before, it’s worth remembering that hemp and cannabis are the same plant species, but they have different physical characteristics and legal distinctions. CBG can be derived from either, but where the Bulk CBG Distillate comes from determines what you can do with it and where you can sell it. In the United States, hemp-derived CBG is governed by the 2018 Farm Bill, which classifies it alongside other primarily hemp-derived, non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD and CBN. While hemp-derived cannabinoids are less psychoactive than cannabis-derived cannabinoids, this does not mean that businesses can create any CBG-based SKU and sell it across state lines. To be compliant, any hemp-derived product containing CBG must still contain less than 0.3% THC. CBG is typically decarboxylated for use in edibles and tinctures, but raw high-CBG flower is also available. All of these products meet the THC limit. While not as common as CBD, new CBG Oil Wholesale online stores that are virtual clones of their CBD-focused counterparts are springing up all over the place. This opens up significant opportunities for businesses to use CBG Distillate Wholesale in a variety of ways, particularly in markets where THC can be legally sold for medical or recreational purposes. As we’ll see, smart businesses are already incorporating CBG distillate with THC into everything from gummies to beverages, and many cultivators are working hard to obtain high-CBG Oil Wholesale strains in order to offer traditional dry flower or dabbable concentrates with high Bulk CBG Distillate content.

How Is CBG Made?

While cannabis and hemp plants can produce a wide range of cannabinoids throughout their lives, Wholesale CBG Distillate is a metabolic precursor to all other major cannabinoids, though different cannabis and hemp strains have varying final concentrations of CBG after maturation. According to anecdotal evidence, younger flowering plants may contain more than older ones. At the moment, the majority of commercially available CBG-infused products are primarily made from hemp, beginning with crude CBG oil and then refined through the distillation process.

Jack Frost, John Snow, Sour G, Lemon Cream Diesel, and White Widow are a few of the most popular high-CBG hemp strains available for purchase by farmers today—but don’t confuse them with their high-THC counterparts that many readers will be familiar with. Many of these hemp strains and others with allegedly high CBG levels are available online from a variety of retailers, but their top-tier cannabis cousins, which are high in CBG, THC, and other cannabinoids, are much more difficult to obtain. This is due to the high cost and time involved in pheno-hunting high-CBG strains (the process of selectively breeding plants and then testing them for specific physical traits and/or chemical production), and once a winning mother plant has been established, it is rarely shared. Beyond processing high-CBG cannabis plants, many extractors prefer to distil crude CBG from hemp to obtain the purest possible CBG oil. Because few, if any, cannabis or hemp strains produce CBG at the same levels as CBD or THC, even more thorough processing is usually required to produce a high-quality end product.

For companies looking to produce crude Wholesale CBG Distillate, ethanol extraction is frequently used due to its high hemp processing throughput. This is a difficult segment of the market for newcomers to enter unless they have significant investment behind them. Many existing small and mid-scale CBD ethanol extractors, for example, have been largely wiped out of the market over the last two years as massively-scaled, highly-efficient competitors with building-sized ethanol extraction machinery have entered the space. Precision Extraction’s equipment powers some of these massive operations. Many high-output ethanol systems are prohibitively expensive for hemp businesses, and they have very large footprints that necessitate a large amount of licenced square footage. As a result, most businesses find greater profitability by purchasing crude CBG and refining it with a less expensive distillation setup, as previously mentioned, or simply by purchasing CBG distillate to then use with the products they want to make.

Considerations for CBG Business

The manner in which your company intends to market its CBG products will be determined by a number of factors, including whether or not you have a licence to process THC (or just hemp), whether your company is vertically integrated (and grows its own material), and, most importantly, what final SKUs you intend to produce. A quick Google search reveals that almost anyone can buy CBG distillate online for per gramme or less if they want to make their own products or run a business. However, extractors with access to the right hemp can produce it for much less than that. Processors can often charge a reasonable premium for the additional cannabinoids over non-blended competitor products in many cases, particularly for THC/CBG combo products. Even Wholesale CBG Distillate-only products sold online tend to be more expensive than their CBD counterparts due to their scarcity.

CBG Oil Wholesale, like CBD isolate, can have a slightly bitter flavour for some people, so making sure that any tincture or edible formula is made with its taste and aroma in mind is critical. The most successful cannabis companies that sell edible products of any kind understand that it is the combination of effect and flavour that keeps customers coming back, not just one or the other. There are numerous ways for a hemp or cannabis company to market CBG products, but finding the sweet spot of brand and SKU fit that has the greatest potential to appeal to a given company’s target market takes time and effort. To be successful, businesses should conduct a thorough analysis of what is already available (if anything) in their space and conduct a detailed competitive analysis to determine the best possible product(s) to make.

A few forward-thinking companies are capitalising on the CBG trend in ways other than standalone CBG SKUs. WYLD, the world’s largest edible manufacturer with licences in no less than seven states and sales in the hundreds of millions of dollars, is one of the most well-known. Each serving of their “Hybrid-Enhanced” pear-flavored gummies contains 10mg of THC and CBG. WYLD also sells minor cannabinoid THC-complementary gummies, such as those containing CBN and marketed for their sleepy effect.

Keef Cola’s latest CBG, CBN, and THCv beverages, which come in different flavours and are also marketed based on specific possible effects such as energy or balance, are another great example of innovation in the “minor” cannabinoids category. While new products leveraging minor cannabinoids to differentiate themselves on dispensary shelves are appearing in most states, it is not too late for your company to get in on the action.

The Competition For Hemp Extractors

The competition for hemp extractors or resellers operating online and drop-shipping to all states where it is legal is fierce across both product types and SEO. If you don’t already have a strong presence in this market, creating sales volume will necessitate long-term investments in both formulations and digital marketing. Because there is a lack of outstanding branding in the space, savvy business owners can capitalize on Wholesale CBG Distillate by combining robust marketing and sales budgets with passionate employees. The CBD isolate market, on the other hand, is much more saturated and increasingly difficult to break into as a new business unless you offer a truly novel product line. If this is what your company intends to do, make sure to investigate all of the available options, as well as which products appear to be the most popular and what their price points are. After you’ve strategically planned everything, certain gaps may begin to open up that make sense for your brand, whether it’s chocolate, vaporizers, tablets, or something entirely different.

There is more room to maneuver for businesses that are licensed processors in the THC space. Because THC is so complementary to minor cannabinoids, you might find yourself in a smaller box depending on the state you’re in. It’s critical to conduct a similar strategic analysis as mentioned previously, but in mature markets, go even deeper to discover where your brand might be able to break through. If your company primarily sells chocolate, releasing a vaporizer simply because it appears feasible may not make much sense to your customers. The same is true for a concentrate-based company attempting to launch a CBG edible if they do not already have established THC-based edibles on the market.
