Where do CBD and CBG Come From?
By Jaci Schreckengost
CBD and CBG are now common terms with products all over the market. You can find these cannabinoids in drinks, tinctures, bath bombs, roll-ons, and so many other products.
Where do CBD and CBG come from?
Both Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabigerol (CBG) come from the hemp plant.
CBG is the cannabinoid that the others begin as. Eventually, through the growth of the plant CBG will become other cannabinoids, such as CBD.
The determining factor of whether a cannabinoid is CBD or CBG is when it is harvested. With that, you might be wondering, aren’t they basically the same?
Not even a little bit. The timing of the harvesting process makes a huge difference in the cannabinoids. This previous New Highs blog post examines the differences between CBD and CBG.
Will it make me feel “high”?
No — New Highs products are full-spectrum products from the hemp plant, however there is less than .03 percent of THC in the products.
It’s completely safe to use our tinctures either orally or topically to work with your endocannabinoid system. If you’d like to learn more about that, check out our website’s FAQ.

How are New Highs products made?
New Highs products are food grade C02 derived from sun-grown organic hemp grown in the great state of Oregon.
Oregon is one of the few states with consistent labeling regulations on CBD and CBG products. We use third-party testing from PIXIS Labs to be completely transparent about our products. This Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is always available on the front page of our website.
New Highs products are crafted to be unique and elevated above the market standards — and that starts with where and how we grow our plants.
