- CBD legalization saw a surge in CBD based products in the market and no signs of it backing down soon
- Cannabigerol, also known as CBG is a cannabis extract that is currently shaping the cannabis use in Dallas
- Dallas residents have wide access to CBG with botanists, scientists and farmers working to ensure they have high content CBD plants.
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 marks a watershed towards the regulation of cannabis in the U.S. While the crop remains significantly regulated, the law makes the production and distribution of hemp legal under federal law. In an unprecedented move, the Congress came to an agreement towards the 2018 Farm Bill final version.
The legalization saw a boom in CBD based products in the market with many distributors and manufacturers terming it as a healthier alternative medicine. Dallas residents have felt the impact with the CBD flower precisely a favorite for many users. Considering the fact that high-THC cannabis is still not legalized in Texas, Dallasites are out of choices but to crave for CBD. It will at least satisfy the cannabis craze that is sweeping the whole US.
What most people don’t know is that CBD and high-THC have a lot of similarities and can easily confuse one for the other, when it comes to the smell and the trichomes it leaves on the finger.
Though with CBD, its smell is somewhat richer which facilitates that sense of smoking once it hits the throat, and you can really feel it going down to your lungs, which is very satisfying.
Actually, the real difference between CBD and THC is that CBD doesn’t give you the high, which Dallas residents are okay with, for the moment.
CBD, a dominant cannabinoid extract in the cannabis plant, packaged as tinctures, lotions or balms has now been widely accepted in the US. As a result, botanists, scientists and growers of the cannabis plant work with genetics to ensure that they have strains that have a high CBD or THC content depending on the final use of the plant.
Where does CBG come From?
For a cannabis plant to fully mature and be ready for harvest, it may take considerably a lengthy period of time. Though in the 60s, some cannabis enthusiast found a new way to breed an all high cannabinoid plant, by identifying the spot that the cannabinoids stem from, the Cannabigerol, or CBG.
Many people consider CBG as the “mother of all cannabidiols” and CBG has been a great reference point for many scientists and growers. According to Forbes, CBG alone is really expensive to produce. There is a lot involved in producing CBG which soars the prices as compared to the regular cannabidiols.
Even though CBG is not popular as CBD, it is reported that it helps with a variety of medicinal properties. CBG has been influential towards the assistance of inflammation while showing great promise towards the fight of cancer and an active antibacterial agent.
According to medical experts, CBG comes with a plethora of benefits that exceed the expectations that other cannabinoids have fallen short. Based on a study conducted in 2017, researchers were able to prove that purified forms of CBG containing no traces of THC made mice hungry. To say the least, mice did get the munchies, a good reason as to why the consumption of cannabis is okay.
According to the Dallas Observer, they had some CBG flower at The Glass House TX, and they really loved the experience. According to them, stumbling upon a CBG flower, rest assured of some treat.
Cannabis flower looks absolutely good with a fine smell that’s sometimes referred to as exotic or gas. There are several licensed growers across Dallas, chief among them being CutivAid and The Glass House TX. Of importance to note is that CultivAid does not have any CBG products showcased or listed on its website.
Dallas users of CBG who get to purchase CBG White from CultivAid will find on the copper and black colored box will find a message.
“CBG, often referred to as the mother cannabinoid, is a key wellness component of cannabis. CBG offers a plethora of benefits, exceeding expectations and shining through where other cannabinoids may have fallen short.” the message reads.
The smell and ultimate look of CBG White can be compared to the winners of the CBD flower at the High Times Cannabis Cup. Of importance to note is that the Cannabis Cup takes place across states in the U.S. where high THC-cannabis is legal, with Texas being one of them.
Also, the CBD flower that one gets to compete with others for the cup does not have to meet or abide by the federal regulation of 0.3% or figures lower than that regarding THC content. However, CBG that you can find in Dallas is 100% legal.
At least, there are close to 113 cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant, with CBG, THC, and CBD making into the list of the three dominant cannabinoids in the plant. There’s even a substance in the cannabis plant known as Cannabinol or CBN in short. CBN has got some minor psychoactive properties. But again, it is important to note that the psychoactive properties of THC are a big reason as to why Texas is not intending to legalize high-THC cannabis.
Research concerning Cannabidiol has received significant support, especially under the 2018 Farm Bill, a reason as to why the crop is legal for funding, especially under the Critical Agricultural Materials Act.
Across Dallas, sellers are now free and allowed to sell CBG, based on the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018.
Even though scientists and the manufacturers of CBG find it to be somewhat intriguing, and the mother of all cannabinoids, CBG comes in as one of the most expensive and laborious CBG’s to produce.
Among other reasons, CBG is praised by a majority of people and medical experts with the product thought to be highly influential towards the control of inflammation. Additionally, there is medical evidence suggesting that CBG has shown some significant promise towards the fight of cancer and active antibacterial agents, a reason as to why Dallas is legally selling these CBG cannabinoids.
