CBG has attracted a lot of attention, but it is not widely available. Few companies offer CBG because it is difficult to extract and not as abundant as CBD. We offer an extensive collection of CBG products, including full spectrum CBG oil, a THC free CBG tincture, CBG isolate, and CBG softgel capsules.
Like CBD, cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive naturally occurring hemp compound. It's earned the impressive nickname The Mother Cannabinoid because it is the precursor to all other cannabinoids. It transforms into THC, CBD, etc., as the plant grows. For this reason, CBG is more abundant in young plants.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBG AND CBD
So why would you buy CBG oil instead of CBD? There are many similarities between the two, but far more CBD research is available. That’s because public interest in CBG is relatively new. Cannabigerol studies that do exist show promise in a multitude of areas. CBG is slightly more expensive since it is rare and challenging to extract.

FULL SPECTRUM CBG OIL
Because cannabigerol isn't as plentiful in adult hemp plants, extracting the desired amount of CBG for a full spectrum product is difficult to achieve. Due to this challenge, many extractors blend CBG isolate with CBD extract. We carefully select Colorado hemp with high-CBG content to make a whole-plant extraction possible. Just like our other full spectrum products, Extract Labs' CBG oil contains a host of minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and other phytochemicals that naturally occur in hemp. It's suggested that these individual parts work together to increase the extract's effectiveness in a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.
BROAD SPECTRUM CBG TINCTURE
Our Broad spectrum CBG tincture is a THC free alternative to full spectrum oils. If you must avoid THC altogether, broad spectrum oil is your best option. This, too, is a whole-plant extract and provides the same potential entourage effect, minus the contributions of less than 0.3 percent THC included in full spectrum tinctures.
As the name suggests, isolate is pure CBG in powder form. It is the best option for those who only want CBG without any other cannabinoids. CBG isolate is just as versatile as CBD isolate. It can be mixed with other hemp extracts to create custom blends or added to homemade beauty products. And because it is tasteless, it works well in recipes. We offer 1000 milligram individual portions. We also provide bulk CBG isolate ranging from 5 grams to 500 grams.
While CBD tends to get the lion's share of recognition from the wellness community, CBG could be as important. In fact, CBG products may equally help reduce anxiety, as well as fight inflammation.* Furthermore, some believe that CBG may play a large role in brain health.* Cannabigerol combined with our Extract Labs CBD products is a one-two punch against life’s physical and mental stressors.
