Not All Hemp is Created Equal

CBD American Shaman of PA continues to establish itself as an industry leader by introducing strains of cannabigerol (CBG) hemp flower, including Jack Frost and John Snow. CBG, the non-psychoactive “mother cannabinoid”, is one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

It typically converts into cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as the hemp plant grows, but some strains of industrial hemp, including Jack Frost, are bred specifically to produce high levels of CBG in order to take advantage of its beneficial effects.

CBD and CBG bind to receptors in the body. CBD has been more extensively researched, while CBG is the "next big thing" in hemp products. Neither compound is psychoactive, meaning while they may have beneficial health-supporting properties, they won't give a "high" feeling. CBG is good for supporting a wide range of health systems, including mood, energy, sleep patterns, and muscle and joint function.
