A large amount of hemp, about 10-15 times the amount needed for CBD extraction, is needed for CBG purity extraction because of the lower concentration of CBG. Consequently, this raises the cost of CBG isolate quite drastically. Over time as hemp and cannabis strains evolve and become more prevalent, the cost of CBG will likely decrease.
The cannabis plant first produces Cannabigerolic Acid (CBG-A). It is the chemical parent of the cannabis plant because most of the CBG produced eventually turns into one of the three main cannabinoids: Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THC-A), Cannabidiolic Acid (CBD-A), or Cannabichromenic Acid (CBC-A). As a result of this conversion, most cannabis strains harvested properly max out around 1% CBG. CBG is non-intoxicating, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive.
It’s often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids. This is because other cannabinoids are derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), an acidic form of CBG. CBG is derived from young hemp plants because they contain higher amounts of CBG than fully developed plants. CBG is found in smaller quantities than other cannabinoids in plants – in most strains, only 1% of CBG can be found compared to 20 to 25% of CBD. CBG has a host of promising potential benefits and more research is being done into easing the production and availability of the cannabinoid.
