Bulk CBG Isolate Buyer’s Guide | GVB Biopharma

Posted 2 years ago by GVB Biopharma

Reviewed by Alissa B. Daschbach MA BS MH

CBG isolate is an ultra-pure cannabinoid extract that contains greater than 98% CBG. While cannabigerol (CBG) is similar to cannabidiol (CBD) in many ways, these two cannabinoids differ significantly enough to create a unique market in CBG products. In addition, GVB Biopharma CBG isolate can be combined with other cannabinoid extracts to capitalize on a potential form of cannabinoid synergy called the entourage effect.¹

Since CBG Isolate is in powdered form, it’s easy to add bulk CBG isolate to almost any product type. Learn more about the potential uses of CBG isolate and why GVB Biopharma is one of the world’s premier producers of this niche bulk ingredient in this guide.

What is CBG isolate?

The Cannabis plant produces 100s of cannabinoids, including cannabigerol or CBG. CBG is a non-psychoactive compound that is typically found in very small amounts in mature hemp plants. CBG isolate is a type of hemp extract that has been purified so that almost all other substances aside from CBG have been removed. GVB Biopharma CBG isolate routinely tests at ~99% purity, which makes our CBG isolate one of the purest options on the market.

While other forms of CBG isolate consist of tiny amounts of CBG from low-yielding hemp plants that have been cobbled together post-extraction, GVB Biopharma derives its bulk CBG isolate and CBG Distillate from plants that have been bred to contain high levels of cannabigerol.² Not only is deriving CBG isolate from high-CBG plants more efficient and environmentally friendly, but it also requires less processing.

In GVB Biopharma CBG isolate, nearly all traces of compounds other than CBG have been eliminated. This powdered extract contains non-detectable levels of THC, which means that if our CBG isolate contains any THC at all, there isn’t enough of this intoxicating cannabinoid present to register with even the most advanced testing equipment. GVB Biopharma CBG isolate also does not contain detectable levels of CBD, CBN, CBC, or any of the other cannabinoids, which makes this simple extract easy to work with.

Now that the CBD market is largely established, consumers are turning to buy CBG for variety and in response to growing interest in this cannabinoid’s unique properties. including the potential to treat neurologic disorders and inflammatory bowel disease.³ Whether you choose to combine our CBG isolate with CBD or offer standalone cannabigerol products, there are plenty of product categories that consumers are learning to associate with CBG.

Which product types are ideal for CBG isolate?

GVB Biopharma CBG isolate can be used in any products in which CBD isolate is currently used. For instance, this powder can be added to tinctures, capsules, and other orally ingested products, and CBG is also becoming highly popular in topical products due to growing awareness of this cannabinoid’s potential dermatological properties.

Like other isolated cannabinoid products, CBG isolate is easy to work with, and since this product is ~99%-pure, it’s easy to calculate dosages when formulating CBG products. GVB Biopharma CBG isolate is ideal in products that seek to capitalize on the potential benefits of cannabigerol specifically, and this bulk ingredient is also uniquely positioned to add value to CBD products.

By simply combining CBD isolate and CBG isolate, for instance, it’s possible to market products as providing cannabinoid synergy.4 CBD isolate products that target consumers who don’t want to consume any THC, for instance, have traditionally suffered from their lack of entourage effect potential, and this drawback can be countered while still eliminating THC with the addition of CBG isolate.

Why is GVB Biopharma the best source of bulk CBG isolate?

GVB Biopharma CBG isolate stands apart from the competition due to our firm commitment to producing this product using high-CBG hemp plants. Since our CBG isolate comes from hemp plants that are already high in CBG, less agricultural space and plant material is wasted, which results in better bulk ingredients offered at fairer prices.

Since our CBG isolate is incredibly pure and sustainably derived, this extract offers better reliability and results than competing bulk CBG ingredients. In addition, our strict oversight over every stage of the production process ensures that our bulk CBG isolate meets or exceeds the highest regulatory and compliance standards.

Currently, GVB Biopharma is one of the world’s most popular producers of wholesale CBG isolate, and we attribute our success to our firm adherence to multi-stage testing, total transparency, and state-of-the-art extraction and production processes. Our clients trust us to deliver reliable CBG isolate with lightning-fast delivery times, and in this section, we’ll discuss in detail each of the factors that sets GVB Biopharma apart from our competitors.

Testing and Quality

All GVB Biopharma products are tested multiple times throughout the production process. First, we test the seeds that we use to grow our hemp crops to ensure that they meet our purity and quality standards. While our hemp matures from these verified high-quality seeds, we engage in constant quality control measures to ensure that no pesticides or other toxins contaminate our crops.

We test our hemp flower immediately after harvesting to make sure that our quality control measures were successful. Then, we test the crude extract that we derive from our hemp flower to ensure that no residual solvents are present. Once THC and the other unnecessary components in this crude extract have been removed, we test our proprietary CBG isolate to ensure that it includes the target concentration of cannabigerol that makes it such a useful extract.

You have the option of buying our CBG isolate and manufacturing your own products or allowing us to infuse CBG isolate into pre-made white label products that you can then market yourself. If you select this all-encompassing service, we will test the final product before shipment for purity and potency.

Very few cannabinoid producers take such stringent measures to ensure that the CBG isolate they produce is high potency and free of contaminants. Lab reports are readily available for both our bulk CBG isolate and our pre-made products that contain this type of cannabinoid-rich CBD concentrate.

Certified Producer

At GVB Biopharma, we proactively seek any and all certifications that may be relevant to our business operations. We were one of the first hemp facilities in Oregon to receive food-grade certification, and we work extensively with local fire marshals to ensure that all of our facilities are compliant with fire safety standards.

Most importantly, GVB Oregon is ISO 9001:2015 certified and holds an NSF International’s Good Manufacturing Practice Registration for dietary supplements. NSF International is a leading certification agency that verifies a manufacturing facility has the proper methods, equipment, facilities, and controls in place to produce dietary supplement products in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s regulations on dietary supplements.

GVB also recently received our Handling certification from California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and has started producing Certified Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), which affirms GVB Biopharma’s position as one of the industry’s leading hemp processors. 

Each of our certifications speaks to our commitment to maintaining the highest levels of quality control and quality assurance possible. Furthermore, we observe all OSHA workplace safety standards, and fire code requirements at our facilities to ensure they are free of hazardous contaminants. 

Regardless of any claims, we may make about the quality of our bulk CBD isolate and other products, third-party validation is necessary to confirm the purity of our products and the integrity of our organization. Every certification effort we have pursued has proven that GVB Biopharma is one of the nation’s most reputable suppliers of CBD isolate and other cannabinoid extracts and finished products.
