Newsflash: CBG Varietal Makes a Splash
In case you haven’t heard, the cannabinoid known as CBG is in high demand this year. Strains that are high in CBG are typically very low in THC and have their own special profile. At Hempire State Growers, our CBG varietal—Matterhorn— is a real beauty. Almost 17,000 individual plants of this coveted cultivar grew abundantly this season on our farm/s. The charming shape of the Matterhorn plant was easy to spot in the HSG fields. It looks a bit like an ostrich—full body, long neck, and plenty fluffy!
Why CBG? There is growing evidence that CBG may have a wide range of health benefits. Scientists believe that CBG binds to certain endocannabinoid receptors in the brain that mitigate anxiety and pain. Some researchers claim that CBG also minimizes inflammation and nausea, enhances focus, and works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells. If even one of these claims is true, CBG will prove to be the next rock star cannabinoid.
Matterhorn is a European CBG-rich cultivar created by Matthias Ghidossi, founder of the company Swiss Cannabinoid. Its flower has a delicious lemon-lime, earthy aroma and effervescent citrus flavors when smoked.
