Before and while consuming products that contain cannabigerol, it is very important to first think about safety and take several precautions that we have listed for you below:
Before consuming CBG, we strongly recommend you consult your doctor to get a professional opinion on the potential interaction between CBG and your body and mind. Moreover, CBG can interact with similar receptors in the endocannabinoid system like CBD does, so it may interact with over-the-counter or prescription medications, vitamins or supplements. The best option is to check with your healthcare professional before trying CBG. This is especially important if you are taking medications that carry a “grapefruit warning”.
Another important aspect to definitely keep in mind is the legal factor. Remember that because CBG is a compound derived from cannabis plants, it is not permitted in a number of countries and regions. To be on the safe side and to allay any concerns you might have, check the relevant international and local CBG legislation.
Despite a few promising results from studies on CBG and its potential effects on the body and mind, it is important to understand that a lot more research is needed to demonstrate the real effects of cannabigerol. Hopefully, the situation will become clearer every year with an increasing number of studies.
When you start taking CBG vs CBD products, always begin with a small dose. It is essential to understand your body’s capabilities. Also, keeping a record of doses can be helpful.
8. Possible side effects of taking CBG
What about the possible side effects you may experience after consuming CBG? There are not many studies on the side effects of cannabigerol. In fact, the cannabinoid cannabigerol is not well known to most people. The crucial role that CBG plays in supporting and generating other cannabinoids could spur further research on all of them. However, from the few studies and limited information out there about cannabigerol, there is not enough data to learn anything about possible side effects of this cannabinoid. In one article, it is stated that rats may tolerate CBG well, but there isn’t enough research to say much about the possible side effects it may have in humans. We are monitoring the situation and keeping an eye on the latest results in CBG research.
