What are the differences between CBD and CBG?
Asked 3 years ago
So I've noticed that there is not only CBD oil, but also an oil called CBG. What are their differences?

CBD (Cannabidiol) and CBG (Cannabigerol) are two of more than 120 cannabinoids found in plants of the genus Cannabis. Two plants of the genus Cannabis are marijuana and hemp. CBD and CBG can be extracted from both these plants.
The benefits of CBD are well documented. CBD is used to relieve a variety of ailments, both physical and mental, like anxiety, inflammation, and pain. It is also taken to generally improve wellness.
CBG also have beneficial properties. People take CBG oil to reduce inflammation, ease pain, and nausea. Research is ongoing, but CBG may be effective in fighting diseases associated with inflammation.
CBD and CBG will not get you high, they are not addictive, and have few side effects. The main difference is that CBD is more commonly known and used. If you use full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD you'll be getting some of all the cannabis cannabinoids, including CBG.
