New York Hemp, CBD, CBG, & CBN Questions
What is CBD?

CBD is one of the most prominent naturally occurring compounds found in hemp and cannabis plants. When CBD is extracted from hemp, it can be processed in many forms including ingestible oils, topical salves, smokable vapes, and edibles. 

Known as cannabidiol, CBD interacts with receptors in the body’s Endocannabinoid System to deliver an array of wellness benefits. Research shows CBD is also a potent anti-inflammatory agent.

What is CBG?

CBG (Cannabigerol) is considered the “mother cannabinoid” of hemp and cannabis plants because it can transform into compounds like CBD and THC under environmental conditions, like heat, age, and light. 

CBG binds directly with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body’s Endocannabinoid System to support internal balance. Reported CBG benefits include improved sleep and skin health with the proper CBG dosage.

Check out our recent blog to learn about CBG benefits, CBG dosage, and CBG edibles.

What is CBN?

CBN is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants. Anecdotal evidence indicates CBN may support better sleep, pain relief, and increased appetite due to its interaction with the body’s Endocannabinoid System. In terms of its effects, some CBN users report mild psychoactive feelings, which may result from the compound’s sedative properties.

How can I incorporate CBD oil into my beauty routine?

Due to its antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties, CBD is a powerful anti-aging ingredient in lotions, creams, face masks, lip balms and cleansers.

Will CBD, CBG, or CBN get me high?

Unlike THC, CBD and CBG don't get you high. Most research indicates CBN is also non=psychoactive, However, this cannabinoid carries a little more nuance than the other hemp-derived compounds. Some evidence suggests CBN may be mildly psychoactive at high dosages due to its sedative effects and close chemical relation to THCa (the acidic precursor to THC), All that said, CBN absolutely does not produce the intense mind-altering effects associated with marijuana.

What is the difference Between CBG and CBD?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of the precursors to CBD, which means hemp plants convert CBG into CBD as they mature and become exposed to heat and light. 

When it comes to CBG benefits vs CBD benefits, the two share similar effects as well as key distinctions. CBG is known to have the greatest effect on skin issues, sleep and appetite, while CBD is best known for stress and anxiety relief, pain, and muscle soreness.

Should I take CBG oil or CBD oil?

What is the best CBG dosage for maximum effects?

The best CBG dosage and milligrams is different for everyone, depending on their health condition, metabolism, age, weight and frequency of use.

The best way to start is with a low dosage that you gradually increase over time.
