CBD VS CBG: How They Can Help With Parts Of Your Health

by Tom Simmmons

When people used to hear the term, "cannabis," all they'd picture was a bunch of hippies smoking marijuana. Although many people still use cannabis for recreational use, it has also taken over many parts of the health and wellness world in different forms. Both Cannabigerol (CBG) and Cannabidiol (CBD) can be used to treat a wide range of things, including anxiety and even skincare concerns. 


CBD oil is primarily used for individuals who suffer from anxiety or even insomnia. If you have a hard time getting yourself to relax, sleep, and wind down, then using something like a Cannabidiol oil can do wonders. By either applying it to the temples or even the wrist, the thought process is that this sort of oil will calm your nerves and anxiety which can help you feel a lot more relaxed and more like yourself. 


In the US, the Food and Drug Administration does not have strict restrictions and guidelines on things like skincare, which can be a bit scary considering that you are putting products on your body that are then absorbed into the bloodstream. If you are worried about many skincare products and are wanting to use something more natural, then you may want to look into CBG lotion. CBG itself is great for skincare because it is an: 

  • Antioxidant: Antioxidants are great for the skin because they help protect the skin from a thing like the sun, pollution, and toxins in the air. Additionally, antioxidants also help to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots.
  • Antibacterial: Having a lotion that is an antibacterial agent will help to not only keep your skin as clean as possible, but it will also help to cut back on bacteria that can lead to acne. 
  • Anti-inflammatory: Your skin can become swollen either due to exterior elements or due to things like acne, eczema, or other skin conditions. 

Nothing is more natural than something that is grown directly from the earth. When you use either CBD or CBG, you are using something that has been directly extracted from a cannabis leaf. To learn more about both CBD and CBG for topical use, reach out to a natural drug store or provider near you, and they will help you to not only choose the right product but will show you how to use it correctly as well.
