A recent question we have been receiving a lot at USA Medical is “which CBG bottle should you buy?” This is a fair question to ask as we offer three different CBG bottles, from 500mg to 3,000mg. Let’s break down what CBG is and how it can help your body and discuss the differences between our three options.

What Is CBG?
CBG oil, or Cannabigerol oil, is a type of oil derived from the hemp plant, a member of the cannabis family. CBG is a lesser-known cannabinoid that is present in small quantities in most strains of cannabis, but it is becoming increasingly popular due to its potential health benefits. It is being dubbed “the mother of all cannabinoids” because it is the very first cannabinoid present in a hemp plant.
CBG is often referred to as a “non-psychoactive” cannabinoid, which means that it does not produce the “high” commonly associated with the use of marijuana. This is because CBG does not have the same potent affinity for the CB1 receptors in the brain as the psychoactive cannabinoid THC. In other words, CBG does not bind strongly to the CB1 receptors; therefore, it does not produce the same intense euphoric effects as THC. This makes CBG an attractive option for those who are looking for the potential health benefits of cannabis-derived products without the psychoactive effects. Additionally, because CBG is not psychoactive, it is not subject to the same legal restrictions as THC, and it is considered to be a safer and more accessible option for those who are interested in exploring the potential benefits of cannabinoids.
The Endocannabinoid System
CBG works in our bodies by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters that plays a role in regulating various physiological processes, including pain sensation, mood, appetite, and immune function. CBG interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the ECS, which are found throughout the body and play a role in regulating various functions.
CB1 & CB2 Receptors
The CB1 and CB2 receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters that regulates various physiological processes in the human body. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord, and are involved in regulating functions such as mood, appetite, pain perception, and memory. CB1 receptors are also expressed in peripheral tissues, including the liver, adipose tissue, and muscle, where they regulate energy metabolism.
On the other hand, CB2 receptors are primarily found in immune cells and tissues, including the spleen, tonsils, and bone marrow. CB2 receptors play a role in regulating the immune system, and they are involved in the suppression of inflammation and the maintenance of immune homeostasis. CB2 receptors have also been shown to be involved in regulating pain and neuroinflammation, making them an attractive target for developing new therapeutic strategies for conditions such as chronic pain and neurodegenerative disorders. The interaction between cannabinoids, such as CBG, and the CB1 and CB2 receptors is thought to be an important mechanism by which these compounds exert their effects on the body.
In preclinical studies, CBG has shown potential therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective effects. Some studies have also suggested that CBG may have the potential as a treatment for conditions such as glaucoma, Huntington’s disease, and inflammatory bowel disease. Now that we know what CBG is and how it works, let’s get into the differences between bottles of USA Medical CBG.
The differences between 500mg, 1000mg, and 3000mg CBG refer to the amount of CBG per serving in a particular product. The amount of CBG in a product can impact its strength and potential benefits. Here are some of the differences between the three strengths:
500mg CBG Oil
This relatively low strength may be suitable for those new to using CBG or those looking for a milder product. 500mg CBG products may be good for those who are using CBG for general wellness or for mild symptoms, such as minor aches and pains.
1000mg CBG Oil
This is a stronger strength and may be more suitable for those who have experience using CBG and are looking for a more potent product. 1000mg CBG products may be good for those using CBG for more severe symptoms or specific conditions, such as inflammation or anxiety.
3000mg CBG Oil
This is the highest strength and may be the most potent option for those using CBG for specific conditions or severe symptoms. 3000mg CBG products may be good for those who are using CBG for chronic conditions, such as chronic pain or neurodegenerative diseases, as well as anything else that the other doses are used for.
The benefits of CBG are clear, and as the research continues to expand, the scientific and holistic health community will fully adopt CBG as an alternative to some of the most common medications being used today. We sell three options at USA Medical because we want to offer you the ability to adapt and grow on your journey to discovering the power of CBG. Everyone is different, and the dose may differ, but the 3000mg CBG covers all bases by being the most beneficial and saving the most money over time due to the product’s strength.
No matter what dose you choose, USA Medical will be there to help you along the way – here’s to a happy, healthy, holistic life!
