Lets Discover CBG Flowers
Like most other plants, the female hemp plant also develops buds. But not every hemp flower is automatically a CBG flower, because the cannabigerol content is only high in those buds that have a low THC value under 5%. Our special non-psychoactive CBG flowers usually have a CBG content of up to 10% and are therefore particularly high quality.
Our CBG flowers are of course legal in and the EU.
What makes CBG flowers?
Before you buy CBG flowers, you are probably wondering what makes them so special and how they differ from CBD flowers.
CBG flowers have a high content of cannabigerol – in our flowers the CBG value even reaches 8-10%.
Cannabigerol is the “mother molecule” of CBD, THC and other well-known cannabinoids, meaning that each cannabionide initially starts as CBG before becoming THC etc. through chemical changes. Unlike THC, CBG has typically no psychoactive effects and does not make the user high.
There are great similarities between CBG and CBD, but research suggests that CBG has even more positive effects on the human body than CBD.
In contrast to CBD, the amounts of CBG extracted from the flowers are very small. In the past, the CBG content of CBG flowers was often less than 1%. It was only through many breeding and lab analyzes that it was finally possible to grow hemp varieties whose flowers had a higher CBG content.
In our CBG flower you will find a CBG content of 8-10% as well as many other high-quality cannabinoids, organic plant ingredients and terpenes. See the enclosed analysis accompanied in your package for specific details.
In terms of taste, this CBG flower offers a special experience, as its aroma is reminiscent of hops, but also of floral chamomile and the woody scent of pine.
Growing CBG flowers in Lithuania
When growing hemp plants, a basic distinction can be made between outdoor, indoor and greenhouse cultivation. Each location has its advantages and disadvantages.
Planting hemp outdoors saves money because it hardly requires any technology. In the best case scenario, water flows from the sky by itself and the lighting is also a gift from nature. Irrigation is necessary every now and then when it is hot and persistently dry, but it becomes more risky when it rains constantly: in this case the plants can become moldy. Cultivation and harvesting are no longer possible from late autumn at the latest, which reduces the yield.
When growing indoors, all factors that affect the hemp plants and thus also the CBG flowers can be controlled relatively precisely. The light and temperature can be regulated, as can the water and nutrient supply. In addition, it can be harvested all year round. However, the whole thing costs a lot more than outdoor cultivation and the yield of CBG flowers is lower on the relatively small area.
Cultivation in the greenhouse:
The greenhouse is considered a kind of compromise between the two paths. The glass walls allow sunlight to pass through, but not rain. The heat is stored inside – and various damaging influences can be blocked out. Nevertheless, care must be taken to ensure a constant supply of water and nutrients.

How long does CBG flowers last?
It is not always possible to use the flowers completely shortly after receiving them. This is absolutely no problem because our products can be stored undamaged for 12 to 24 months after they have been gently dried. However, you should protect your CBG flowers well from sunlight, air and moisture during this time. They like a temperature between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius, so they don’t belong in the refrigerator. A dry cellar or a cool room is better.
Notes on aroma-preserving storage
Over time, UV light breaks down the active ingredients contained in it and dries out the CBG flowers. It also damages the resin glands that provide the natural slight stickiness. An opaque container is therefore a must if you want to store your CBG flowers properly. The container should also be airtight, otherwise the CBG flowers will dry out and lose their delicious aroma relatively quickly. Ideally, the humidity is 50 to 60 percent, then nothing stands in the way of later enjoyable use!
How are CBG and CBD different and what are their similarities?
Affinity for cannabinoid receptors.
One difference between CBD and CBG is their affinity for cannabinoid receptors. Compared to CBG, CBD has a low affinity for cannabinoid receptors, but has a very complex effect. CBG has a high affinity for both CB1, CB2 and CB3 cannabinoid receptors, which means CBG can be very helpful in treating various health conditions.
Different Concentrations in the Cannabis Plant
Another difference is that CBG concentrations change in a hemp plant, unlike CBD and THC. As the cannabis plant matures, the CBGA is converted into THC and CBD. This means that CBG concentrations remain extremely low. It is therefore advisable to harvest the hemp plant in its early stages to obtain a higher concentration of CBG. This is the reason that CBG buds always look a little smaller due to selected harvesting.
Cannabigerolic Acid as a Common Origin
Both CBD and CBG have cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) as a common primary chemical compound. As the plant matures, the CBGA breaks down into CBCA, THCA, and CBDA, leaving a small percentage of CBGA behind. When the decarboxylation process takes place, THCA, CBDA, CBCA and CBGA further break down into THC, CBD, CBC and CBG accordingly.
CBD and CBG are both non-psychoactive.
Although both compounds interact with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), neither CBD nor CBG is psychoactive and neither will get you high. Our buds are thus aged for a more intense effect of the medicinal synergistic effects of all the plant cannabinoids.
CBD and CBG both cause an entourage effect.
In order to benefit from a positive interaction between the two compounds, also known as the so-called entourage effect, it is recommended to combine CBD and CBG instead of separating both cannabinoids into isolates.
