White CBG – Our White CBG delivers an enlivened calm that is noticeably different from a CBD flower. Definitively on the upbeat spectrum, this is a great choice for anyone looking for a near zero THC option in hemp flower! These big beautiful CBG buds are frosted and dense and have a subtle and unique flavor profile. Our flowers are packaged in odor proof jars and the nose is understated, like you’d expect from a CBG flower, but noticeable notes of sweet citrus and warm earth serve up an inviting first impression.
White CBG is not a CBD hemp flower strain. If you have questions about the differences between CBG and CBD, the first section of this review will familiarize you with CBG. it might be best to start here, but if you are already familiar with cannabigerol, you can skip the next two sections to continue with the review itself:
If you’ve come to the SourceBody™ website, odds are you are familiar with cannabis and have an understanding of terms like THC, CBD, and their differences. What is less widely well known and understood is CBG, or ‘cannabigerol’.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is another cannabinoid, just like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). CBG is in fact the chemical precursor to both THC and CBD. Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is what forms prior to tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidolic acid (CBDA).
In layman’s terms; CBG is the ‘mother’ of THC and CBD. Without CBG, there is no THC or CBD. Enzymes within cannabis strains are synthesized and either turn the majority of CBG acid into THC acid or CBD acid.
To avoid the majority of GBGA immediately getting converted to CBDA and THCA requires extensive cross breeding of hemp strains and genetic manipulations. SourceBody™’s White CBG strain is a result of such cultivation. When cultivators are attempting to grow a CBG crop, they have to harvest early, giving the strain less time to convert into other cannabinoids like CBD and THC. It is a very difficult, and costly strain to produce. That’s why some have come to call it “The Rolls Royce of Cannabinoids.”
Origins & History
Neither CBD nor CBG have the psychoactive elements of THC. Both CBG and CBD interact with the same chemical receptors in the body, and both are believed to have anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, as well as antioxidant effects.
There is a lot more research available on CBD than there is on CBG, however we do know that CBG functions differently than CBD. And despite the fact that CBGA is the precursor to CBD, CBD is entirely distinct from CBG, both in terms of its abundance in cannabis plants, and in terms of its chemical structure. While CBD has primarily indirect interactions with the endocannabinoid system, some studies show that CBG interacts directly onto the endocannabinoid system through the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors.
Some researchers believe that CBG works as a to mitigate the psychoactive effects of THC on the endocannabinoid system.

Our official position with regards to our full-spectrum hemp products and drug tests:
Our products do contain less than .3% THC and an array of other rare cannabinoids. Because of this, we CANNOT guarantee a negative drug test. If you are worried about passing a drug test for your employee or other reason, we do not recommend taking our products as there is a chance you will test positive.
