CBG Dosage: How Much CBG Should You Take?


When you try a new cannabinoid product, it’s important to ensure that you are using the correct dosage. Cannabinoids such as CBG do not get you high, but if you take too much, you might not experience the benefits you expect.

Today, we will be discussing the specifics of CBG dosage. We’ll cover everything from what CBG is to the factors that you should take into consideration when determining your ideal dosage. You’ll know the right amount of CBG to take by the end of this article.

What Is CBG?

Let’s first and foremost cover what CBG means.

Cannabigerol, one of many cannabinoids in cannabis plants, is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Cannabis would not be the same if CBG wasn’t present.

Here’s an explanation:

CBGA is the precursor of CBG, and it’s also called “the mother of cannabinoids.” CBGA is one of the base compounds that cannabis plants produce during their growth. CBGA is broken down by the plant as it grows, resulting in cannabinoids like CBDA and THCA.

You can probably guess that CBDA and THCA are then transformed into THC and CBD, our two favorite cannabinoids. While only a small amount of CBG remains after this transformation, the plant would not be what we know it to be today without its precursor.

CBG is not psychoactive, so you won’t get high from consuming it. The compound binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors, creating a powerful supportive effect throughout the body. CBG is used for a variety of reasons and in many forms.

CBG is legal in the United States under the 2018 Farm Bill. You can easily order online and have your products delivered to you.

How to Dose CBG

You should be cautious when you first start using CBG to get the best results. Starting doses don’t fit all, unfortunately, for cannabinoids, including CBG. There are several ways to determine the dosage that works for you.

Start with a small dose, no matter which cannabinoid product you are using. This is usually 5-10mg for most products. If this dose is not strong enough for you, you can increase the milligrams slowly by 2.5-5mg. You can do this until you find a dosage that suits you.

Start with lower doses, like 5mg. You may want to begin with a higher dose, perhaps closer to 10mg if you’re using a capsule.

It’s important to know and be responsible for how much CBG is consumed. If you’ve never used CBG, even if your tolerance is high, you should still start slowly to allow your body to adjust to this new cannabinoid. Do not rush through the process. It may take some trial and error to find the perfect amount for you, but it’s out there.

Dosing Considerations for CBG

You’ll need to take into account a few factors in order to determine your CBG dosage. You should consider your body chemistry and cannabis tolerance as well as the product type and why you are consuming it.

When determining the dosage of CBG, you should consider your body chemistry—things like weight and metabolism. CBG will probably work at higher dosages if your body is used to requiring high doses. You’ll also need to take a higher dose if your body is larger. A smaller person with a faster metabolism may be able to stick with a low dose based on body chemistry.

You also need to consider your tolerance level for cannabis. If you have been using cannabis for a while, your body is already familiar with cannabinoids such as CBG. You’ll need to start at a higher dose if you have never used CBG before. You don’t need to start out with a high dose as it’s still a new thing. Start with a moderate dosage of CBG to see how you react. You can gradually increase the dose if it is not strong enough.

You should also consider what type of CBG product you are interested in and why you would want to consume it. CBG products have different effects. Edibles are more concentrated and last longer, while CBG flower is instant but quickly fades.

You won’t require as high a dose of CBG if you are using it for acute pain or complications. For severe complications, higher doses are likely to be needed.

Before you purchase any CBG products, take some time to think about your body chemistry and tolerance to cannabis, the reason you want to consume it, as well as how you plan to use it. Once you’ve established these factors, it will be easier to determine what is the best dose for you. Remember, the dose you start with doesn’t need to be your permanent dose. You can adjust your dose as needed.
