Study finds more than half of CBG products contained wrong amount of CBG

According to research done by Leafreport, over half of CBG products contained a different percentage of the cannabinoid than stated. Of a total of 38 products tested in a cannabis testing lab, 48% was highly accurate (within 10% of what was stated), whereas the remaining 52% contained either more or less CBG than the label said it did.

"Out of 38 tested products, 18 (47.4%) got an A, 13 (34.2%) got a B, 5 (13.1%) got a C, and 2 (5.3%) received an F. In other words, over half (52.6%) had inaccurate CBG levels. However, all 15 products advertised to contain broad or full-spectrum CBD were correct. That’s a great result, since our previous reports found at least a few products that carried the wrong type of CBD extract," the Leafreport researchers shared.

"We also discovered that, out of 24 products advertised to contain both CBG and CBG, only 4 (17%) were accurate for both. Seven products (29%) were accurate for CBG but not CBD, 8 (33%) were accurate for CBD but not CBG, and 5 (21%) were inaccurate for both. These results suggest that it’s harder for brands to meet label claims for two rather than only one cannabinoid."
