Cannabigerol genetics are a relatively new development in the cannabis world and CBG Flower strains are becoming increasingly popular.
While the cannabinoid has been known about since the 60s, stable CBG genetics have not been produced until very recently. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, however, cannabis with less than 0.3% THC has become federally legal to grow this has allowed growers to establish breeding programs that emphasize a range of different cannabinoids.
CBD may have taken much of the limelight so far, but there are signs it will soon face competition from CBG, the so-called ‘mother’ of cannabinoids – It’s called this as it’s the cannabinoid that all other cannabinoids are synthesized from.
Now that high-quality CBG seeds are being developed, a lot of hemp flower sellers are starting to stock CBG strains on their shelves. This article will highlight some of the best out there right now.
First up, meet White CBG. Created by renowned seed producers Oregon Seed Company, this is a GBG version “The White,” an elite THC variety. According to the company, it produces large frosty flowers with up to 20% CBG and less than 0.3% THC. It has creamy-lemon aroma and incredible bag appeal.
This strain doesn’t have many official reviews, but according to numerous Reddit users, White CBG is tasty, potent, and definitely worth trying at least once.
Jack Frost CBG
Another new CBG strain from Oregon Seed Co., Jack Frost CBG is, as the name might suggest, covered in frosty trichomes that contains a respectable 13.5% CBG along with a small amount of CBC and an even tinier amount of THC.
Jack Frost is well-reviewed, with an average 4.5 star rating across the board. You can also find a Certificate of Analysis from DB Labs here.
Super Glue CBG
With purple-green buds and orange hairs, Super Glue is a standout CBG strain. It also has a thick covering of swollen trichomes and a lovely flavor; you can definitely taste the haze in this one. It comes in at an impressive 22% CBG.
This strain is extremely popular as it is sold by Black Tie, so you’ll be lucky if you find it in stock (it’s currently unavailable). If you’re lucky enough to snag some for yourself, the COA is available on the website.
Lemon Cream Diesel CBG
With a sweet lemon-citrus taste, this strain is highly relaxing, offering a nice body buzz and an improved ability to focus. With more than 20% CBG, it is another trichome-heavy strain.
It can be a bit dry due to a low moisture content, but that is common with CBG strains. Aside from that, Lemon Cream is a winner in all categories.
This unnamed CBG flower has a uniquely nutty aroma with earthy, hazy undertones. This is thanks to high levels of the uncommon terpene guaiol, which has a piney smell, combined with the sweet and floral bisabolol and peppery caryophyllene. White, diamond-shaped bud produce over 15% CBG and its effects have been compared to that of green tea.
An organically-grown, hand-trimmed batch of this strain is currently on offer with 1 ounce for $100 (normally $200 value). Sign up to our newsletter for the discount code.
