What is hemp CBG (Cannabigerol)?

Cannabigerol or CBG, has become the new cannabinoid buzz word for 2020. Below you will find information about CBG and why its become the 2020 cannabinoid everyone is talking about.

What is hemp CBG (Cannabigerol) and why should I care?

Hemp, that most likely contained hemp CBG, was cultivated over 10,000 years ago near today’s Taiwan. This stuff has been around, well, it feels like forever! We know that many ancient civilizations have used hemp throughout history for a myriad of both health and utilitarian reasons (fiber, clothes, rope, etc).

Recently, with new technology both on the farming and cultivation side of hemp, then during the post refinement or extraction of hemp oil. Farmers and processors have been able to isolate rare cannabinoids better than ever. CBG is one of those rare cannabinoids that Infusionz has based its new line of Hemp CBG products.

CBG, a non-psychoactive hemp compound, nicknamed the “Mother of all cannabinoids”, an appropriate nickname for CBG due to all Cannabinoids starting off as CBG, CBGA to be specific!

What is NANO water soluble CBD?

Infusionz NANO water soluble CBD products are special. Below you will find some easy to understand information about our NANO line of CBD products and why you will enjoy them.

NANO water soluble CBD has become a “buzz” word recently in the hemp CBD industry. Infusionz was reluctant to offer NANO technology until we had full confidence in the NANO water soluble CBD that we were offering. Our new line, named “NANO” is exactly what Infusionz was aspiring to offer our loyal customers. NANO water soluble CBD products that can be trusted for their quality and effectiveness.

As we continued to refine the NANO line of Infusionz products, we realized that the demand for NANO water soluble CBD products was increasing quickly. Our customers were looking for it, and asking for it consistently. We have finally delivered a superior quality product that uses NANO technology to help drive CBD throughout your body and create a very appealing experience for the user.

Bioavailability is another fancy word used quite often in the hemp CBD industry. What does it mean and how does it relate to NANO water soluble CBD?

Bioavailability, simply put, is how much CBD you’re actually getting into your body. Sure, the product package says how much CBD is in the product but you have to remember your body will destroy much of this CBD during the digestion process for edible hemp CBD products. Nano hemp CBD that is water soluble will help alleviate this, due to the smaller particle size, the human body can absorb more of the CBD and give you a “better bang for your buck”.

How much more CBD becomes bioavailable you ask? Unfortunately we’re not in a position to make any promises about the bioavailability of NANO water soluble hemp CBD. However, there are multiple resources on the internet to help you understand why water soluble hemp CBD could be considered for higher bioavailability as more research becomes available.

NANO water soluble CBD all relates to a simple concept, oil and water don’t mix! You probably remember hearing about this in school. Hemp and its counterpart “hemp CBD oil” don’t mix with water. The human body is up to 60% water! So how do we get hemp CBD oil to mix with water? The basic answer lies in breaking down the CBD particles into smaller “NANO” sizes. This helps the hemp CBD oil penetrate and incorporate itself into the water based substance. We encourage you to do your own research on water soluble NANO CBD and better understand all the benefits it can offer.

Many of the products we offer are meant to be suspended in water, including our CBD drink mixes. If you were to create an oil based product and try to mix with water you’d get an “oil slick” at the top of your beverage cup. With our NANO line of drink mixes, you don’t experience this oil slick and the CBD is equally dispersed throughout your beverage!

To summarize the information we provided about NANO water soluble CBD:

  • NANO water soluble hemp CBD just means smaller particles of CBD
  • This helps Infusionz create quality NANO hemp CBD products that can be water based
  • The smaller particles have an opportunity to become more bioavailable to the human body
  • Infusionz offers an entire line of NANO water soluble CBD products

A Guide to Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum

A lot of CBD companies are now offering products in Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum options. The popularity of these CBD options are rising due to the cannabinoid spectrum range they offer. *see disclaimer below

How CBD Spectrum Products Are Created

Typically, a whole, dried hemp plant is processed by a CO2 extraction method that uses lower temperatures to extract the oil. What is extracted from the plant is cannabinoids (like CBD and CBG), flavonoids, and terpenes. This is a preferred method because the lower temperatures prevents the loss of cannabinoids. Because of the way these spectrum oils are created, they may have a strong natural odor and flavor.

 

Full Spectrum CBD

Full Spectrum is also referred to as “whole plant’ products, as this oil has everything the hemp plant contains. This means it has a range of cannabinoids, but it also has naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and essential oils. All of these elements on their own have therapeutic value, and when combined you get what is called the “entourage effect”.

Another highlight of Full Spectrum Oil is it goes through the least amount of processing. This leaves you with an oil that gives you the most the hemp plant can offer. For those seeking to get the most out of their CBD product, Full Spectrum is definitely one to look at.

The biggest thing to consider with Full Spectrum Oil is it does contain trace amounts of THC. Up to 0.3% of this psychoactive cannabinoid can be found in these products, so for those sensitive to THC or those who can’t have THC in their system one should consider Broad Spectrum instead. Full Spectrum can also have a sedative effect depending on the individual. It’s best not to drive or operate machinery when using these products.

 

Broad Spectrum CBD

To get Broad Spectrum CBD, the full spectrum oil is put through another extraction process where all of the THC cannabinoid is removed. This process leaves the other cannabinoids such as CBG and CBN, as well as the enriching terpenes.

These products are ideal for anyone who is sensitive to THC, or those who can’t have any traces of THC in their system. They still offer the entourage effects you get with full spectrum, but without any chances of ingesting THC.

The one downside to Broad Spectrum is the lack of research done on this particular spectrum combination. From the studies that have been done on just CBD and those on full spectrum, the up and coming Broad Spectrum CBD choices show great promise with their cannabinoid family.

 

Continuing Education

One of the best places you can learn about cannabinoids is from research and studies.

This study done from 2015 examined individual cannabinoids versus a spectrum range of cannabinoids.
