Pure Unadulterated Cannabinoids
15.5% CBG Milled Flower
CBG Booster - When CBGA is heated (decarboxylated), it is converted into CBG and other cannabinoids. Both CBG and CBGA have different benefits and different effects when inhaled or ingested.
CBG Booster Directions - Vaporize/Smoke CBG (Decarboxylated Form):
Sprinkle budnkd CBG flower on any milled flower to boost the CBG content for vaping, smoking or other forms of inhalation.
100% Unadulterated Targeted Cannabinoids
Why choose unnecessary additives, when you can go all natural with budnkd.
What is the difference between CBGA and CBG?
CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) and CBG (cannabigerol) are two different cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, but they have distinct chemical structures and potential effects.
CBGA is considered a "parent" cannabinoid because it serves as the precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. When cannabis plants are young, they contain mostly CBGA, which is then converted into other cannabinoids through a process called decarboxylation. Early CBGA research shows anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, but more research is needed.
CBG, on the other hand, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is sometimes referred to as the "stem cell" cannabinoid because it can be converted into other cannabinoids, just like CBGA. CBG may have a range of potential therapeutic effects, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety properties. It may also have potential as a treatment for glaucoma and other conditions.
In summary, CBGA and CBG are both important cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, but they have distinct chemical structures and potential effects. CBGA is a precursor to other cannabinoids and may have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, while CBG is non-intoxicating and may have a range of potential therapeutic effects.
CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) is decarboxylated when it is exposed to heat or light. Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that removes a carboxyl group from a molecule, which in the case of CBGA, converts it into other cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, or CBG.
When heat or UV lighting is applied these cannabinoids lose one molecule of CO2 and change into their neutral form e.g., CBGA to CBG. This process is called decarboxylation. Therefore, when cannabis is smoked or vaporized, a large portion of the cannabinoids will be decarboxylated by the effect of the heat and will change into their neutral form CBG. However, if the same sample is ingested with no heat applied, they will keep its original state e.g., CBGA.
In cannabis plants, decarboxylation occurs naturally over time as the plant matures and is exposed to sunlight. However, to obtain a consistent and controlled level of decarboxylation, many cultivators use specialized equipment to heat the plant material to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time.
When cannabis is heated or burned, such as when it is smoked or vaporized, decarboxylation occurs rapidly and converts CBGA and other cannabinoid acids into their active forms, such as THC and CBD. This is why cannabis that has not been decarboxylated, such as raw cannabis or cannabis used in certain edibles, will not produce a psychoactive effect.
