Opening our storefront has allowed us to hear and witness so many more product reviews/suggestions than we were exposed to before. Talking to customers every day gives us so much useful insight when navigating our product line, and making recommendations to others. After hearing so many testimonials regarding our products containing CBG, we’ve decided to drop a new line of CBG GUMMIES :p
New to CBG? CBGA (AKA cannabigerol acid) is CBG's original form before it is decarbed/heated. It's produced in the early stages of a cannabis plant's growth. As the plant matures, enzymes break CBGA down into other cannabinoids that we know and love (CBD & THC). This is why some refer to CBG as the 'mother of all cannabinoids' - it's what major cannabinoids start as. It's also why CBG is typically found in lower concentrations once strains have fully flowered.
To put it into perspective, Imagine a caterpillar (CBGA). What was once a tiny worm has now gone into its cocoon (enzymes break it down) and out comes a beautiful butterfly (CBD & THC). BUT don’t forget this butterfly would not exist without the caterpillar.
CBG has so many amazing benefits that our customers have been taking full advantage of. CBG provides relief from: Digestive issues, IBS, pain, insomnia, neurodegenerative diseases, Crohn's disease, Glaucoma, leaky gut, and nausea— it even fights bad bacteria as a super anti-microbial. Cannabis interacts with the endocannabinoid system within humans by binding to either CB1 or CB2 receptors. These receptors play an active role in regulating mood, appetite, pain response, and more. Specifically, CBG binds to our CB2 receptors - these receptors are mostly expressed in the immune system and play a big role in how we respond to diseases.
We’ve had customers tell us that our CBG products have completely changed the game for them, and we felt it was time to bring on a line of CBG gummies. Our existing CBG products include our CBG + CBD Moon Pops, our Vegan Gummies (CBG + CBD) , the Relax Vape Pen and our smokable flower strain “The White.” Now, we’ll be expanding that selection to include 25mg and 50mg CBG gummies in all of the Moon Flower flavors you know and love.
It is important to note that CBG is non-psychoactive, and can even reduce the effects of THC. Take too much THC and now you have a case of the scaries? CBG works wonders to counteract the negative effects of THC, so it never hurts to have some on hand if you like to push the THC ~limits.~ However, this is a full-spectrum product (contains trace amounts of all sorts of cannabinoids including THC) therefore, it will still cause you to fail a drug test!!
CBG can also be a great alternative for those using CBD to combat anxiety, because CBG doesn’t cause drowsiness in the way that CBD sometimes does— It’s perfect for daytime use!
Moral of the story— there isn’t much that CBG can’t do. Moon Flower believes the more cannabinoids, the better. This is why we’re so excited to finally be able to offer this option to our customer base. We hope you give it a try, and love it as much as we do. <3
