CBG flower is hemp flower with high levels of cannabigerol, abbreviated CBG, that is one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, just like CBD which means it won’t get you high. It typically converts into CBD and THC as the hemp plant grows, but strains like The White are bred specifically to produce high levels of CBG in order to take advantage of its beneficial effects.
