What is CBG? Cannabigerol (CBG) is a common cannabinoid that has been getting plenty of scientific attention recently. The Cannabis plant can contain upwards of 100+ Cannabinoids, and CBG is the precursor to all Cannabinoids in immature Cannabis plants. Despite how common it is in low potencies in immature plants, CBG is still quite rare in finished Cannabis flowers at large therapeutic doses. Oregon CBD has bred a variety called “CBG White” which we have available now. Read on for more about CBG, or skip straight to our Canna-Lite page for more about our CBG White!
