This is a common question without a simple answer. Technically, yes, CBG is psychoactive – but likely not in the way you think. “Psychoactive” is a term that only means “affecting the mind. Considering this, everything from coffee to heroin is “psychoactive.” What many people mean when they ask this is whether or not it is intoxicating. In this regard, the answer is a firm no. CBG, like CBD, does not result in an alteration in consciousness and is not inebriating.
