    CBD vs. CBG- What's the Difference

    CBD vs. CBG- What's the Difference

    Cannabidiol or CBD products have hit shelves in droves since Congress made hemp legal with the 2018 Farm Bill. Derived from the hemp plant, advocates herald CBD as a potentially strong treatment for issues such as inflammation and pain management.

    But what if there was a cannabinoid that did the job even better?

    That’s the claim, by some, for cannabigerol or CBG. According to New Jersey.com, CBG has been called “a better anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety treatment than CBD or marijuana,” partly because it’s less likely to make the user groggy or paranoid.

    What, exactly, is CBG?

    CBG comes from the hemp plant. That means, much like CBD, it is a non-psychoactive chemical. Which is simply another way of saying, it doesn’t get you high. As long as the content of THC ⁠—the chemical ingredient that does produce a psychoactive high⁠— is less than the federal limit of 0.3 percent, then it’s perfectly legal.


    What are the potential uses of CBG?

    CBG is present in small amounts in hemp plants, making it more difficult to extract and study than CBD. However, there has been preliminary research that shows CBG has a lot of potential to treat many different conditions, including:

    Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). A study with mice found that CBG reduced bowel inflammation, prompting researchers to call for CBG “clinical experimentation in IBD patients.”

    Huntington’s disease. A study, again with mice, found that CBG was neuroprotective when treating mice with Huntington’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder.

    Antibacterial and anti-cancer. Different studies have shown that CBG has potential as an antibacterial agent and may inhibit cancerous cell growth - although both studies were also done with mice.

    While the study findings are interesting, none have been conducted with humans. They show promise but are far from offering definitive proof of CBG’s medical potential.

    Where can you try CBG?

    While studies are ongoing, there are already products on the market that include CBG, including oils and tablets.

    While CBG cannot get you high, it could impact your mood and help alleviate anxiety and even depression. CBG is more potent than CBD, which means it’s a smart move to check with a physician before taking the product.

    Right now, CBG has more potential than proven effectiveness. But some companies are already focusing on making CBG-infused products. With more research, CBG could emerge as the more potent (and more expensive) cannabinoid cousin of CBD. Stay tuned for more updates!

    CBD for SEX

    CBD for SEX

    Much has been written and said about CBD and the multitude of benefits it may have for those seeking an alternative means for maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. This potent plant extract has been shown to be beneficial in many areas of both physical and mental health.

    And now, CBD is even being considered for its potential benefits to a man’s sexual health. It’s something many avoid talking about but read on to learn about the benefits of CBD for sex and how one product claims it could transform your sex life.

    Benefits of CBD for sex

    CBD may be beneficial in the bedroom for men for a few reasons. For starters, using CBD has a calming influence on the mind and can help with anxiety. Many men suffer from stress or performance anxiety which can quickly lead to unsatisfying sex.

    Infact, anxiety and stress is a leading cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. The potential short-term benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids could be ideal for men who prefer to treat their ED situationally.

    CBD can help you unwind and feel more at ease, which can heighten the enjoyment of the experience with your partner. It may also help you feel less inhibited and fixated on details that can disrupt those intimate moments.

    Using CBD may increase the serotonin levels in the brain which can help to elevate your mood, increase your sensitivity to pleasure and hopefully enhance your sexual desire and overall experience.

    Lastly, chronic pain can negatively impact the sex lives of both men and women. Studies show that CBD is a potentanti-inflammatory and can be effective as a means of managing pain.
