CBD and CBG - what is the difference?

In general, CBG is only helpful for certain problems (treating glaucoma, relieving pain, helping to treat skin problems and promoting bone growth) - for these it can be much more effective than CBD, but the range of these problems is not wide. For other problems and common complaints, CBD products are recommended.

Yes, of course. By combining cannabinoids, it enhances the final effect - the components of hemp are synergistic (mutually reinforcing).
