Cannabigerol (CBG) is becoming more popular with every passing day. Over the last few years, new methods have substantially reduced CBG production costs, and this cannabinoid’s differences from CBD are drawing an increasing amount of attention.
Industry leaders have taken special interest in this cannabinoid. GVB Biopharma even recently launched a scientific foundation to find out more about this coveted cannabinoid. In this list, discover five product ideas that draw the interest of hemp consumers by showcasing the unique properties of CBG.
1. Antimicrobial CBG cream
Research is being conducted to determine the potential antibacterial and antifungal properties of cannabigerol. After years of examination, the international cannabis research community has concluded that the antibacterial properties of CBD are minimal at best, but the opposite may be true for CBG.
Regardless of the eventual results of ongoing research into cannabigerol’s potential antimicrobial benefits, consumers have quickly learned to associate this cannabinoid with bacteria-fighting properties, and antibacterial-oriented CBG topicals have already arrived on the market.
You can grab a hold on this trend by producing a CBG-infused cream or balm that includes peppermint oil, tea tree oil, or eucalyptus oil since each of these essential oils are also believed to have antibacterial properties. Add some lavender oil into the mix for added aromatic bliss.
2. Digestion-boosting CBG capsule
Cannabis scientists have recently become enamored with the potential digestive benefits of CBG. While CBD does not appear to directly impact your digestive health, researchers are keenly interested in the potential impact of CBG.
Consumers who suffer from digestive conditions generally aren’t interested in flowery, gimmicky products. They simply want something that works and that’s easy to use. For these purposes, nothing fits better than oral soft gels, which deliver the benefits of CBG directly into your digestive tract without any mess or hassle.
Both probiotics and aloe vera are also believed to aid the digestive tract, so it might make sense to produce a CBG capsule that contains one or both of these beneficial ingredients.
3. Antioxidant CBG tincture
Like CBD, CBG has been researched extensively for its potential antioxidant properties. Based on existing studies, it seems reasonable to conclude that many of the active components of Cannabis sativa could have antioxidant benefits—even terpenes and flavonoids may reduce oxidative stress and help with inflammation.
To this end, CBG makes sense as an addition to tinctures that already contain CBD and other components of non-intoxicating Cannabis sativa. You can use a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD or CBG extract as a base and simply add the isolated version of the other cannabinoid to round things off. To infuse your tincture with additional potent properties, consider adding cannabinol (CBN) isolate into the mix as well.
4. Water-dispersible CBG digestion drink
Recently, fermented, non-alcoholic drinks like kombucha and water kefir have gained mainstream acclaim due to their purported digestive benefits. Since fermented drinks contain lots of probiotics, experts say that you should indulge in kombucha or a similar beverage after meals to improve the usability of your food.
Research also indicates that probiotics can help with various digestive ailments, making kombucha popular among individuals with digestion diseases.
What could be better than a tasty fermented drink that’s infused with CBG? Some bulk cannabinoid producers, such as GVB Biopharma, can make CBG isolate or distillate into a water-dispersible powder, which blends perfectly with fermented drinks. Just remember to provide instructions warning consumers to shake their CBG drinks before consuming.
5. High-potency CBG vape cartridge
Veteran cannabis users and hemp newbies alike are intrigued by the potentially unique properties of CBG. When you want to experience the full benefits of a new cannabinoid for yourself, there’s no method more efficient or effective than vaping.
Companies like GVB Biopharma can make CBG distillate into a crystal-resistant vape fluid that provides excellent results and offers a crystal-free shelf life of over three months. Whether you already offer vape products or this is your first foray into the vaping industry, producing a CBG vape cartridge is a great way to capture the unique benefits of this non-intoxicating cannabinoid.
Fuel your CBG dreams with reliable bulk ingredients
CBG extracts are only as good as the company that produces them. GVB Biopharma cultivates its own CBG biomass and uses clean, efficient processes to render this base ingredient into distillates and other types of extracts.
Within the next few years, experts expect CBG to reach a level of popularity rivaling that of CBD, so now is the time to get in on the ground floor of the next non-intoxicating cannabinoid revolution.
