CBG Isolate is CBG in its purest form—a pure white powder almost exclusively composed of CBG. CBG Isolate has the highest potency of any CBG-specific products at over 98% CBG.

What is CBG?

CBG (cannabigerol), or rather CBGA, was discovered in the 1960s by none other than Raphael Mechoulam, an Israeli Professor who dedicated his life to medical cannabis research. Following the discovery of THC and CBD, Mechoulam and his partner Yehiel Gaoni isolated CBG.

CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) is just CBG that still has its carboxyl acidy group and can be found in completely raw cannabis plants. It’s one of the most important cannabinoids in existence – it’s a precursor to all other cannabinoids. It has since been rightfully dubbed, the Mother of All Cannabinoids.

Specifically, CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) is a direct line to three main cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). Once exposed to heat or light in process known as decarboxylation, THCA, CBDA, and CBCA will shed their carboxyl acid group and become THC, CBD, and CBC, respectively. When it comes to CBGA though, certain enzymes break it down and it is immediately converted to THCA, CBDA, or CBCA. This is why more THC means less CBG, because of the unique way these compounds interact and are synthesized.

Because of this, plants that do covert to CBG will have their highest cannabigerol content early in the flowering stage. In most cultivars, if left to fully mature, almost all CBG will be converted into other cannabinoids. However, as mentioned above, some hemp strains naturally produce high amounts of CBG rather than CBD or THC.
