The world of hemp and hemp products is ever-expanding! Lately, one product that is becoming more popular is CBG flower. This is a particular strain of hemp that is high in the cannabinoid CBG. Like CBD, it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and it will not make you feel high. However, it has some different benefits and uses from CBD. So, when might you want to try CBG flower? Here are a few situations.
You want to feel energized.
Do you like the benefits of hemp flower but feel like it always leaves you a little too relaxed? If you'd rather feel more energized after enjoying your hemp flower, then CBG flower may work well for you. CBG is known to have slight energizing properties. It won't make you feel jittery like caffeine, but it should help keep you more alert and attentive during the day. Some people like to use CBG flower by day, and then a CBD-rich strain at night when they don't mind feeling sleepy.
You're not getting quite enough effects from CBD flower.
CBG and CBD can work in a synergistic manner. In other words, each one can enhance the action of the other. So if you have been using CBD flower and getting some relief, but not quite as much as you'd like, then smoking some CBG flower can be a smart move. You may feel a bit more relief from headaches, joint pain, nausea, or whatever other ailment you're using the hemp to treat.
You're mainly using hemp to relieve inflammation.
CBD is good at relieving inflammation, but some people find that CBG is even better at alleviating inflammation. So, if inflammation relief is your key goal with hemp, switching to a CBG-rich strain is wise.
Keep in mind that many conditions that hemp is used to treat are, at least in part, related to inflammation. This is true of arthritis, IBS, migraines, and even acne. If you are on an anti-inflammatory medication, using CBG flower may give you enough of a boost that you're able to cut back your dose. Check with your doctor before doing so, of course!
CBG flower is just another option in the wide, wonderful world of hemp and hemp products. If you think it might work for you, then give it a try. You really have nothing to use, as hemp is very safe with few to no side effects.
