How does CBG work? An interview with Dr. Ethan Russo

How does CBG work? Is CBG safe? Am I going to get high taking CBG? Is CBG habit-forming? These are some of the most common questions people have as they search for natural wellness solutions. With so many options available available what should you look for in a CBG product?

As millions of people begin to take a proactive approach to their wellbeing, finding the answers to these and other questions can be elusive. Grocery stores, dispensaries, and online stores sometimes offer conflicting answers. Sometimes the information is confusing, as many of the terms you will encounter are unfamiliar to consumers.

It’s common to seek answers from and insights about cannabis from healthcare practitioners, but these trusted sources may not be familiar with CBG, CBN or even the more well-known cannabinoids. Your family doctor or general practitioner may not be able to offer answers.

To get the answers to some of the most common questions people express about cannabis and CBG, Daygold co-founder Liz FitzGerald traveled from Portland, Oregon to Vashon Island, Washington, to interview cannabis medical expert, Dr. Ethan Russo.

Dr. Russo is one of the most well-respected people within the cannabis industry. He is a board-certified neurologist and has been researching the medicinal benefits of plants, including cannabis, for 30 years.

In this video interview, Dr. Russo explains:

  • what the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is and what it does
  • what to look for in CBG and hemp oil products
  • the importance of testing
  • how he formulated Daygold based on his decades of research
  • the entourage effect
  • how to get the benefits without intoxication
