This is the second product I’m testing by The Healing Connection, the Spanish brand that is making waves across Europe in the CBD industry, following on from my review of the Pet CBD oil.
I’m now taking a closer look at the Healing Connection CBG oil, something I’m always a fan of testing out and don’t feel there is enough of currently on the market.
This is the latest product in their range, following on from their CBD oils, balms and capsules.
How Much CBG Do You Get?
You will get 5% CBG and CBGA combined, while this is a 10ml tincture, meaning 500mg of CBG/CBGA.
They utilise CO2 extraction methods on the cold pressed organic hemp oil, derived from hemp seeds. THC was recorded under 0.05% on the batch-related analysis.
Which Carrier Oil Do They Use?
Keeping it all hemp based, they use 76% hemp oil and 24% hemp extract. Hemp oil is packed full of essential fatty acids, as well as vitamins, meaning it isn’t just the bioavailability of CBD that you’re benefitting from.
Is This 100% Organic?
Something I’m always keen to check up on, due to how highly porous hemp is, I’m happy to say it is organic.
They use organic industrial hemp, in accordance with the common catalogue of varieties of agricultural plant species, accordant to the applicable EC regulations.
This is incredibly important to check, to ensure the CBG oil is free from pesticides, heavy metals and other residues you don’t want to find.
How Much Do You Use?
While cannabigerol oil is a relatively new area for most, even the more experienced CBD users, with not many products on the market, the general recommendation around dosage is virtually identical to CBD oils.
You should therefore aim not to have more than 70mg of CBG in a 24 hour period.
A tincture such as this should contain around 240 drops, which would mean each drop should contain 2.08mg of CBG/CBGA.
They recommend starting with one drop and then gradually moving up to 5-8 drops per day, based on your body and the effects. I skipped the gradual process as I know my body is very much used to the consumption of cannabinoids and went straight for 6-8 drops per day.
As with CBD oil, I took it in a single dosage in the evening, 45 minutes before I went to bed, but you can adapt your timing and dosage based on your personal requirements.
