When people think of the CBG cannabinoid, they typically think of products like tinctures, edibles, and topicals. However, certain strains have been bred over the years to present a higher CBG potency than other strains. Smokable hemp flower, while a niche sector of the industry, is gaining popularity. But how do you know what strains are high CBG potency strains?
This list is a starting point down the rabbit hole of CBG smokable hemp flower.
A great starter smokable hemp flower, White Widow averages around 15% CBGa and less than .3% THC, according to Mr. Hemp Flower. The Beta-Pinene terpene present in its profile offers a spicy, earthy, and fresh flavor.
According to Fern Vally Farms, Sour G CBG flower is a Sativa-dominate strain that offers a 7-8% CBG potency. The lower potency is good for those just beginning to try CBG until they know how it impacts them.
When your watch has ended, John Snow may just be the CBG strain for you. According to CBD American Shaman, this Sativa-dominate strain averages around 20% CBG while staying under the .3% THC potency range.
