While their innovative early-finishing, CBD-rich strains have brought them success in the past, the duo has spent the last two years working to stabilize the nation’s first production-ready, CBG-dominant varietals in seed form.
CBG, the non-intoxicating cannabis compound whose full name is cannabigerol, has been garnering attention for its promising effects for a variety of wellness potential.
In cannabis plants, CBG is essentially the stem cell, or chemical precursor, of many other cannabinoids, and is present in virtually all cannabis plants in their early stages of flower. As the plants mature, CBG morphs into any number of the 113 currently known cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD.
Back at Oregon CBD, I inspect a fragrant nug of the “White Series,” the company’s initial strain offering into the soon-to-be-blossoming CBG market. Out of the four phenotypes of the series, we pass back and forth #103. The flower is coated thick with crystals, speckled with vibrant orange hairs and its terpene profile oozes sweet skunk. It’s hard for me to fathom how something frosted so heavily in trichomes is THC free.
My first hit produces smooth smoke that coats my mouth with sweetness. I’m not drooling high, but I feel an immediate calmness sweep my mind. It slowly gives me a boost of energy, like a cup of coffee without the anxiety.
“It’s a more profound experience than CBD, and while it does not fall under the umbrella of ‘psychoactivity’ like THC does, it does produce a noticeable change,” Seth says. “It’s perspective-altering.”
