3 Reasons Why You Should Combine CBG Flower With Weed

CBG should always be in your stash. Created with Botany Farms.

CBG is the mother of all cannabinoids. Much like The Mother of Dragons, it is a force to be reckoned with, especially because, thanks to its unique combination of effects, it is one of the many reasons hemp was legally welcomed as an alternative to cannabis.

And even if CBG won’t turn you into Daenerys Targaryen, it can give you great benefits when combined with pure THC.

You might not win the Game of Thrones, but you can have one hell of a good time. 

And if you’re in the market for CBG flower, you can’t go wrong with Botany Farms’ selection of CBG and CBG + Delta 8 buds.

It Enhances The Entourage Effect

If you’re unfamiliar with the entourage effect, we’ll explain it with a word: synchronicity. It’s the best combination of cannabinoids, where each element complements the other and bring out their best. 

The entourage effect concept, coined by Raphael Mechoulam, states that all cannabinoids work best when administered together, in a kind of synergistic way. That’s why people ofter prefer full-spectrum products instead of distillates or isolates.

A full-spectrum effect means a more balanced and enjoyable high.

Your THC Flower Lasts Longer

It’s no surprise that when you combine elements, you can make them last longer.

Some of us have added water to our shampoo bottles to make them last a little longer; in this case, adding some regular weed to your CBG flower joint can make both last a bit longer.

Not only in substance does this mean you can maximize the number of hits, but in effects as well: the entourage effect works in your favor, giving you the right high with both the focusing and energizing parts of CBG, as well as the psychoactive qualities of THC. 

Added Energy Without The High

This might be the best part of this combination.

Since CBG is also known as the daytime cousin of CBD, it’s meant to be used as a booster for your mood and focus, without the sometimes hindering psychoactive qualities of regular weed. The mix of these two flowers can give users a euphoric high without going overboard.

It’s not entirely risk-free. We’re not saying you should just smoke yourself too far.

But perhaps if you’re not the kind of user that isn’t accustomed to or ready for pure THC bud, then a mix of flowers with CBG can help you get the best of both worlds.
