High CBG strains for PTSD?

I've noticed an immediate effect compared to cbd flowers wich are usually around 8%cbd and dont do much for me, more like a stony tired relaxation close to nothing. The cbg buds are around 15%cbg and i feel it in the eyes. for a lack of better words it feels more activating while chill at the same time but not tiring, like a tiny internal smile.

edit:
no idea if it would help with ptsd.

No ptsd here either, but I have been trying a lot of ace seeds' strains the last few years, and there's a few of them that are somewhat rich in CBG. What these strains have in common in my experience is they make me smile, as @zaprjaques said. Anecdotal experience for sure because I haven't even read anything on the subject but the mood improvement was noticeable enough with a few strains, that it made me check the cannabinoid analysis on their website looking for a connection which was indeed CBG content. Could be a coincidence of course :)

Which ones made you feel that way? I too am a fan of Ace genetics. They're solid.

Kali China, Congo, Thai chi, Nepal jam and especially Tikal. This is my favorite strain I have grown in a while.
Thanks man. I've grown Nep Jam and Tikal and liked both. I last grew Tikal in 2010 or 11 so I'll give that another run. I've always wanted to run the Congo too. Interested to see how Hinduras might be also.

Wow! And 0% THC, interesting. Have never smoked anything with that cannabinoid profile.

Congo is a good plant. The effect is a little "colder" than others, closer to the effect of a coffee, but I like it.

I made Tikal seeds last year. Your nickname looks spanish, if you are in Spain I could send you a few seeds if you want.

There
This thread is not about isolate.
There's not a lot of info on the cbg strain, the seeds are quite pricey to try them out blindly. I bet they do get you high, maybe not from the cbg but that's not how weed works. The interaction between cannabinoids, terpenes etc is what should give you the complexity in the effect I guess.

Evidently the Zara is cultivated on a large scale https://www.rqspro.com/zara-cbg

I have on multiple occasions had former soldiers tell me about their success with CBG strains to knock out PTSD. I wonder if @RobFromTX has heard about any of this or knows about this

This website says CBG increases energy and relieves stress which seems like the magic combo https://cfah.org/what-is-cbg/. This website boasts of a CBG hemp strain with 18% CBG http://www.cbgseeds.com/

As a side note I want to smoke a strain with equal parts THC/CBD/CBG in the neighborhood of 7-12% each Or maybe as others have said - it is better to mix buds to achieve the effect - mixing equal parts of a pure cbd, pure cbg, pure thc, flowers in a joint

Why is it evident? Do you say that because it is grown for the medical industry?

Fascinating stuff indeed! I'll try any new weed out there once. Ofcourse you know the effects of PTSD are far ranging and different for everyone. I have a buddy from the service that loves CBD. It does great for his symptoms. Me it just makes me feel like i drank a schlitz malt liquor :confused: I find that pure sativa strains help relieve a lot of my symptoms better than mainstream hybrids. Helps with my anxiety and they do wonders for my tinnitus

I appreciate your kindness and generosity, but I am not in Spain. A former Spanish colony though, Nuevo MĂ©xico :tiphat:
