Nordic Oil CBG Crystals Review

CBD and THC are far from being the only cannabinoids in cannabis. The plant is full of many other “minor” cannabinoids. Among them is cannabigerol (CBG), a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that’s been steadily growing in popularity. Some even say CBG could be the next CBD.

Consequently, CBD companies are beginning to offer products containing high amounts of CBG. One such product we’ll review here is the CBG isolate crystals from Nordic Oil.

This particular product is a 1-gram isolate powder containing 97% pure CBG alongside 3% CBDV. In other words, it’s a standard isolate, but with CBG instead of CBD. This means you can use it in the same way, adding it to meals, drinks, making your own tinctures and other preparations, and dabbing.

Here’s why we think this is an interesting alternative to the conventional CBD isolate powder.

Price/Value 5/5

These CBG crystals cost €0.05 per mg. While this price is close to the average for CBD isolate powders, it’s quite low for such a unique, hard-to-find type of hemp product. The few competitor products available tend to be much more costly.

CBD Potency 5/5

With a potency of 97% CBG, this powder is about as strong as it could possibly be. Although it would be great if it was over 99% like standard CBD isolates, we can’t fault Nordic Oil because they’re offering such a unique hemp-based product.

Hemp Source 4/5

According to Nordic Oil, its CBG crystals are derived from non-GMO, certified-organic, pesticide-free European hemp. 

However, the company doesn’t provide proof of organic certification. Moreover, there are no third-party tests for pesticides and other contaminants to help us verify the quality of the company’s hemp source.

Purpose/Uses 4/5

Isolates can be used in cooking and added to drinks, formulating your own tinctures and other preparations, and other ways such as dabbing. 

Having said that, pure CBG lacks the same versatility as a full-spectrum hemp extract, as CBG interacts with other cannabinoids in the body.

Product Variations 4/5

There’s only one product variant for these CBG crystals. It would be better if there was a larger jar size option. However, we can’t take away too many points from Nordic Oil because this product is unique and difficult to find elsewhere. 

Nordic Oil also sells a concentrated CBD powder option to chose from as well.

Formula/Ingredients 5/5

There are two ingredients in Nordic Oil’s CBG crystals: 97% CBG, and 3% CBDV. Similar to CBD, both of these are non-intoxicating cannabinoids with potential health benefits. Although we’re accustomed to isolates having >99% cannabinoid levels, we think this is a great formula for this type of cannabinoid.

What is CBG (Cannabigerol)?

Similar to CBD, CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid with a wide range of potential health benefits. It’s derived from CBGa, the “parent molecule” for CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids. Interest in CBG has been steadily increasing as more research has come out about its beneficial effects.

In general, CBG is better for providing sedative or anti-anxiety effects compared to CBD, and has a very mild calming high associated with it in some cases — similar to that of benzodiazepines. Your mental capacity remains at full while using CBG, but your body feels light and relaxed.

About the Company: Nordic Oil

The company sells separate products in Europe and the United States, which is why Nordic uses a local hemp source for each continent. At this time, American shoppers can only purchase a limited number of products.

Like most reputable brands, Nordic Oil uses the supercritical CO2 extraction process to make its products and utilizes independent third-party testing.

Cost & Potency

As far as CBD isolates go, this product’s cost sits slightly below average at €0.05 per mg. However, once we consider that it contains CBG — a completely different cannabinoid that’s far more difficult to find — the value of this product goes up tremendously.

Since this product is an isolate, it has an extremely high potency of 97%. In other words, there’s 970 mg of CBG in this 1-gram powder. Although it would be nice if it contained over 99% like other isolates, the fact that it’s made with CBG instead of CBD gives Nordic Oil some leeway. This cannabinoid is much more difficult to isolate, and is found in much smaller concentrations than CBD.

Hemp Source

Like Nordic Oil’s other products, this CBG isolate is made from non-GMO European hemp. The company claims this hemp is organic but doesn’t provide organic certification or any other documents to prove this.

Meanwhile, third-party tests confirm that this isolate contains CBG and has zero THC. However, there are no third-party reports for pesticides or other contaminants.


Nordic Oil doesn’t say who or what this product is meant for. However, it’s likely intended to be a novel alternative to CBD isolate powders since CBG is another non-intoxicating cannabinoid believed to have multiple health benefits.

Accordingly, you can use this product as a regular CBD isolate powder, adding it to meals and beverages, making DIY hemp oils and other preparations, and dabbing.


This crystallized powder contains 97% CBG and 3% CBDV, two non-intoxicating cannabinoids. This formula is unique and innovative because there are very few hemp products with high CBG levels available on the market.

Nordic Oil Shipping & Return Policy

Nordic Oil offers free shipping for any order over €38.99 and free express shipping for orders over €99.99. Meanwhile, the company’s return policy states that you can receive a full refund or exchange for any order returned within 30 days of purchase.

In our experience, Nordic Oil has an excellent level of customer service, with a chatbox available on the website and a fast response time to emails.

Final Verdict: An Exciting, Novel Hemp Product

Nordic Oil’s CBG crystals are a great alternative to regular CBD isolate.

Whether you’re looking to try an exciting, unique type of hemp product, or want a different take on regular CBD isolate powder, these crystals are a good choice.

They’re backed by third-party testing verifying high CBG levels and a complete lack of THC: the defining feature of isolate powders. Meanwhile, considering how rare this type of product is, a cost of €0.05 per mg — the same price as the company’s CBD isolate — is quite low.

All in all, although Nordic Oil has room to improve by providing more detailed third-party tests and more information about this hemp source, its CBG crystals are a great product.
