Much research has been undertaken on the positive attributes of both THC and CBD. As CBG is usually only found in smaller trace amounts in these two compounds it has been not studied to a great degree. Geneticists have spent years finding the recessive gene and activating it to produce high CBG strains.
CBG is often referred to as the ‘mother’ cannabinoid or the ‘stem cell’ cannabinoid. This is because all phytocannabinoids start out as CBG. The trichomes within the flower trigger the reaction that converts CBG into THC, CBD, CBN, etc.
CBG is the abbreviation for Cannabigerol and is one of 113 cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa genus which includes the hemp plant. Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 States however cannabis-derived CBD is still considered a grey area of legality in many states. CBG flower is now widely sold in many stores and smoke shops across the USA.
We are seeing the emergence of many new CBD and CBG hybrid tinctures and products and quite a few stand alone CBG products. It has been widely touted as the next CBD and its applications include skin care, topical to relieve inflammation, ingested to fight cancerous tumors and as an antibacterial and antimicrobial.
Just like CBD, CBG mimics the effects of two main cannabinoids produced in the body. These receptors are CB1 and CB2 receptors. The Endocannabinoid System is responsible for regulating many of the body’s essential functions. When something is out of whack through illness, disease, or high-stress the body systems can suffer. This can lead to anxiety, depression, and further illnesses. It is believed that CBD & CBG can step in and supply the Endocannabinoid system with these essential and necessary cannabinoids when the body is unable to make them.
These are some of the benefits from supplying the Endocannabinoid System with cannabinoids:
- Memory and learning
- Stress responders
- Immune system function (anti-inflammatory)
- Moods stabilizer
- Perception of pleasure and pain
- Sleep Cycle
- Cardiovascular system
- Skin cell formation
- Endocrine system function
- Reproductive processes
CBG Skincare Products
Expect to see many more Hempstrax CBG Products hitting the market over the upcoming year with an emphasis on skincare. We sell a really great skincare line using CBG Isolate.
Hempstrax CBG Facial Cream
This wonderful new Hempstrax CBG Facial Cream for the face is very luxurious and moisturizing. We have added 1,000mg of CBG Isolate to smooth and repair the skin deep beneath the surface. There are numerous products containing CBD for the body but is quite uncommon to find CBG products on the market. This has a lot to do with the extraction. This Facial Cream has been shown to reduce fine lines and leaves skin feeling rehydrated and fresh and even has some significant potential medical benefits associated with its use.
This moisturizer works well on all kinds of skin, but its best effects are on more mature skin. Its cooling rosehip and hibiscus formula works effectively to minimize the look of fine lines. Awakening Serum works well on mature skin. The cool, hydrating serum acts quickly to boost skin’s moisture, while vitamin-rich rosehip extract gives the appearance of fuller, firmer skin, reducing the visible appearance of aging.
This Hempstrax CBG Facial Cream works best as part of a complete skincare regimen. Tone with our Rosehip and Hibiscus Toner. Follow this with our face serum and then complete with our SPF 50 day glow moisturizer. Its a light smooth moisturizer leaving your face with a fresh glow.
At night toner, serum and our Facial Cream. Massage lightly into the neck and face patting the eye area.

CBG is an extremely healing compound that can assist in keeping skin supple and moisturized. It is also anti bacterial which is beneficial when treating skin prone to breakouts and acne.

Ever Tried CBG Tea?
Its amazing! At OC Wellness Solutions, we have created a Hempstrax CBD & CBG Blend Tea.
Our favorite pick is our Rose Petal Black Tea infused with CBD & CBG flower. Many companies just add distillate to their tea. We decided to take a fresh innovative approach by adding CBD & CBG Flower. We are the only company to add CBG Flower to tea and the results are amazing.
Our enticing Rose Petal Black Tea is a CBD & CBG Blend. It is a wonderful pick me up. It is the perfect way to start the day or to get you through the 2 pm slump. It’s delicious and fragrant and can be enjoyed hot or iced.
At OC Wellness Solutions, our hand-selected Lifter Strain of CBD flower grown organically in California is restorative and relaxing and it is the perfect way to start the day. We have combined a fragrant Rose Petal Black Tea with the incredible medicinal properties of CBD & CBG. Our Organic flower is de-carbed at a low temperature to make the cannabinoids readily available to the body. It is then mixed through our unique organic Rose Petal Black CBD Blend Tea.
Rose Petal Black Tea:
This tea is blended in late summer when the roses are in full bloom and at their most fragrant. Our Rose Petal Black Tea is also also known as ‘Meigui Hong Cha’. It combines rich Keemun tea and red rose petals. Keemun is a small leaf tea from the Qimen county of Anhui province, best known for English Breakfast blends.
Although there is a whole universe of rose varieties and flavors, we believe the ideal petals for combining with Keemun come from the red roses native to Qimen county in China. They have a distinct sweet, cooling aroma that lends great balance to the blend.
Our Rose Petal Black CBD Blend Tea pairs well with rich and slightly spicy foods. It also makes a delicious iced tea. One of our favorite recipes is to prepare a sauce from Rose Petal Black and serve it over vanilla ice cream.
Black Tea Leaves, Red Rose Petals, Natural Rose Essence.
Steep the tea bags in boiling hot water for 3-5 minutes and then re-use the teabags several times. You will love the results!

We provide the teabags already made up with 1/4 gram of flower per teabag. This tea does contain a small amount of THC and it is compliant with government regulations.

This brings us to Flower….
When we decided to stock CBG flower we looked for the best strain. We came across White CBG which is organically grown by our farmer in Oregon. It’s delicious and fresh with a citrus note and it is an award-winning strain.
We use this strain in our Moroccan Mint Tea, Pear and Ginger Tea, Rose Petal Black Tea, Golden Turmeric Tea, and our Black Mango Tea.
