Not all CBG and CBD products are created equal
The way cannabinoids make you feel is a central theme in the wild and wooly world of CBG, CBD, and cannabis more broadly. Connoisseurs will tell you that body feel and "head change" vary from product to product—some with wildly disappointing effects. "That CBD I bought off [insert large corporate marketplace website here] didn't work at all!" to "Yes! This feeling is where it is at for me."
First, potency, metabolism, and product quality are essential factors when shopping for a CBG gummy. Next step, consider dosage now that you have a high-quality tested and true CBG gummy. Is this your first time trying CBG? Then like any other cannabinoid, slow and low is the tempo. Connoisseurs recommend starting with 10-12 mg of hemp-based cannabinoids (CBD or CBG) one hour before bed or when you have the time and space to relax. If, after 30 minutes in, you don't feel anything, add 5-10 mg to your regimen. And always consult your physician before taking, particularly if you are on medication, pregnant or breastfeeding.
What does the science say?
CBD and CBG interact with your endocannabinoid system in different ways but together can offer complementary results. For example, both show potential therapeutic promise in treating anxiety and depression. Of course, cannabinoid research is in its infancy, but anecdotal evidence drives the scientific community to further their inquiries into CBD, CBG, and other cannabinoids. We will continue to share with you as we chase their findings!
I took a CBG gummy; now what?
Both CBD and CBG are non-intoxicating, so do not expect an extreme head change. Instead, what you are looking for can be best characterized by a dear friend and connoisseur, "It feels like stepping out of a steamy shower—that level of relaxation and relief."
For a better idea of what to expect, let's hear directly from our customers who take our CBD:CBD Calming gummies:
DUDE!!! Those calming sweets! Are FREAKING AMAZING! I've had a terrible week, and they were exactly what I needed to help me out the last couple of days. I take CBD oil daily, but it must be the CBG…it was like CBD on steroids. And I want to eat them all because that flavor is delicious. You all really perfected the taste; it's like candy.

I have tried a lot of different types of CBD out there. From tinctures to gummies to multiple brands but noticed zero results. I bought these on a whim one day and waited to use them until I had some anxiety. (For me, anxiety comes in the form of a bad stomach ache.) I ate half a gummy, and about 15-30 minutes later, my stomach ache was totally gone, and I felt completely relaxed. I have NEVER experienced results like that from CBD. I was so excited about it I have been telling all my friends and family. 10/10 would recommend! Also the flavor is so unique it makes the experience all the more amazing. My forever go-to from now on.

I feel like the gummies are performance-enhancing drugs for my brain so I take them when I study and take tests.

Last word on CBG, for now
While we wait with bated breath for the research to teach us more about the healing potential of CBG and CBD, the most important thing is to listen to your body. As esoteric as that sounds, it is so important. In all aspects of our lives, especially when experimenting with CBD and CBG. Keep a journal, and track your stress levels, dosage, and sleep. Treat yourself as your most precious patient because you are.
