A new CBG hemp strain is now available in the United States

CBD has recently gained attention for its medical properties, now a new CBG hemp strain is available in the United States for farmers.

High Grade Hemp Seed, in partnership with Swiss Cannabinoid, has released the new CBG hemp strain in the US, giving farmers a chance at diversifying their crops.

The potent power of CBG is a hot topic, and American hemp farmers have been anxiously awaiting the release of reliable high-CBG genetics.

The partnership between High Grade Hemp Seed and Swiss Cannabinoid is answering demand with the introduction of Matterhorn CBG, a new boutique European CBG-rich cultivar, available now internationally.

Matterhorn CBG

While THC and CBD have long been the cannabinoids of focus, researchers and hemp breeders are now teaming up to better understand CBG. Hemp genetics experts are aggressively breeding new strains that deliver high yields of CBG, over other cannabinoids.

One cannabis breeder, Matthias Ghidossi, founder of Swiss Cannabinoid, has been working for years to cultivate his own terpene and cannabinoid-rich crops. Through a science-based approach, he surveyed thousands of varietals, and in 2016 discovered that the varietal of choice should not only be terpene-focussed, but also CBG-dominant.

Working with several European geneticists and a Swiss pharmaceutical company on trials, he made a breakthrough and established Matterhorn CBG.

Matthias Ghidossi, said: “We chose to focus on CBG due to its powerful efficacy in early trials. Over the past few years, more and more research has been conducted to understand the value of CBG. The early results of clinical testing in Europe are creating a lot of excitement in the fields of science and medicine.”

Bodhi Urban, CEO of High Grade Hemp Seed, said: “At High Grade we have focused our breeding program and partnerships to ensure farmers can grow proven, strong and diverse genetics.

“That’s one of the reasons we decided to work with Swiss Cannabinoid as a true genetics partner. Paving the way in CBG has been a logical next step – both in advancing the agricultural industry and also in improving the availability of CBG products to US consumers.”

In an effort to empower farmers this growing season and lead the industry as a whole, High Grade will be giving away high-quality CBG genetics to ten licensed hemp farmers in the continental United States.

Winners will be randomly selected and announced at the end of March, 2020.

The 5 Best CBG Flower Strains

Cannabigerol genetics are a relatively new development in the cannabis world and CBG Flower strains are becoming increasingly popular.

While the cannabinoid has been known about since the 60s, stable CBG genetics have not been produced until very recently. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, however, cannabis with less than 0.3% THC has become federally legal to grow this has allowed growers to establish breeding programs that emphasize a range of different cannabinoids.

CBD may have taken much of the limelight so far, but there are signs it will soon face competition from CBG, the so-called ‘mother’ of cannabinoids – It’s called this as it’s the cannabinoid that all other cannabinoids are synthesized from.

Now that high-quality CBG seeds are being developed, a lot of hemp flower sellers are starting to stock CBG strains on their shelves. This article will highlight some of the best out there right now.

With purple-green buds and orange hairs, Super Glue is a standout CBG strain. It also has a thick covering of swollen trichomes and a lovely flavor; you can definitely taste the haze in this one. It comes in at an impressive 22% CBG.

With a sweet lemon-citrus taste, this strain is highly relaxing, offering a nice body buzz and an improved ability to focus. With more than 20% CBG, it is another trichome-heavy strain.

“CBG Flower”

This unnamed CBG flower has a uniquely nutty aroma with earthy, hazy undertones. This is thanks to high levels of the uncommon terpene guaiol, which has a piney smell, combined with the sweet and floral bisabolol and peppery caryophyllene. White, diamond-shaped bud produce over 15% CBG and its effects have been compared to that of green tea.
