It’s no secret that much of the research investigating the effects of hemp have focused on the potential impact of CBD (cannabidiol), but in recent years, there has also been considerable interest in some of the other cannabinoids commonly found in hemp plant extracts in lower concentrations. Of those minor cannabinoids, CBG is attracting a considerable amount of attention, and for good reason!
CBD and CBG have similar effects on the body, but they achieve those effects differently. The two cannabinoids interact with the receptors of the largest regulatory system in your body, the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Those receptors are CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.
When CBG and CBD are paired together, the entourage effect occurs, giving you the synergy of other cannabinoids and terpenes, which elevates the wellness potential of the CBD.
