Why smoke CBD Hemp Flower?

In case you haven’t noticed, CBD products have gotten really popular recently: oils, tinctures, capsules, edibles, topicals, and more!

But it turns out that there’s something even more powerful than all of these: CBD hemp flower.

CBD hemp flower is CBD’s most natural form. While smoking hemp flower might sound strange, it’s actually the easiest and most time-tested way to get your CBD.

What is CBD Hemp Flower?

Think of CBD hemp flower as conventional cannabis’s mild-mannered sibling. Made from the budding tops of the mature hemp plant, hemp flower is high in CBD but very low in THC.

Many CBD hemp flower strains match their low THC content with an ultra-high cannabidiol content of 7-10% or more. CBD hemp flower’s ratio of CBD to THC is off the charts. No wonder it has such relaxing, anti-stress qualities.

So … why smoke hemp flower? Good question. Here are some of the top reasons CBD hemp flower is loved by our customers.

Reason #1: CBD Hemp Flower is delicious

This first reason is one of the most obvious reasons to smoke hemp. Hemp flower looks, smells, and tastes delicious!

While the term “hemp” may conjure up mental images of fibers or rope, hemp flower has come far enough in recent years to rival its high-THC sibling, cannabis. CBD hemp flower is full of flavorful terpenes — just like the cannabis strains you may or may not enjoy.

Smoking CBD hemp flower just wouldn’t be worth it if it didn’t taste delicious. Thankfully, that’s not the case. Many of our customers say that the taste of our hemp flower is their very favorite thing about it! And with 20 iconic strains in the Cannaflower catalogue, there’s something for everybody.

Reason #2: CBD Hemp Flower kicks in fast

Another good thing about CBD hemp flower? It kicks in fast.

Unlike what you’d see with CBD oils or tinctures, you don’t have to wait around for the effects to kick in, wondering whether or not you took enough. Hemp flower is so fast-acting that you can feel its effects immediately. Its cannabinoids and terpenes directly benefit your brain and endocannabinoid system.

With the very first inhale comes feelings of peacefulness, bliss, and calm. There’s practically no risk of anxiety, either, since all our hemp flower tests in at less than 0.3% THC.

Reason #3: CBD Hemp smokers engage the ‘entourage effect’

While modern medicine tends to focus on the isolation and purification of chemical compounds, studies have shown that hemp works differently.

Its active ingredients actually work far better when they’re taken together. Science calls this compound + compound synergy the “entourage effect.” These active ingredients include dozens of cannabinoids, hundreds of terpenes, and all sorts of flavonoids and antioxidants. Even the best full-spectrum hemp oil can’t capture it all!

But CBD hemp flower can. It’s completely unprocessed and features everything you’d expect to find in hemp, including CBD, CNB, CBG, THC, terpenes, cannaflavones, and more.

Reason #4: CBD Hemp Flower could replace nicotine

Could CBD hemp flower help cigarette smokers ditch the habit?

This might sound too good to be true … but it’s not. Studies have shown that the cannabinoids in hemp flower may have anti-addictive properties!

And the real-world experience of our customers backs this concept up. People who are addicted/dependant on nicotine often report that their cravings are down.

How to choose the best CBD Hemp Flower

Finding your next favorite strain of CBD hemp flower is actually pretty easy. Just choose a strain whose terpene profile you enjoy!

Terpenes are the aromatic compounds that give a hemp strain its characteristic taste. Figuring out the terpene content of any given strain can give you a better idea of the strain’s flavor, aroma, and effects.

Here’s a list of some of the top terpenes to look for:

Myrcene | This tropical terp is relaxing and sedating. It’s largely responsible for cannabis’s infamous “couch lock” effect.

Limonene | A delicious citrus terpene, limonene has a uniquely energizing effect.

Linalool | Linalool is best known for being the primary terpene in lavender. As you might expect, it’s very relaxing.

Beta-caryophyllene | This spicy terpene has both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Pinene | This earthy terpene may improve cognitive function and improve cardiovascular health.

Eucalyptol | The primary terp in eucalyptus, this terpene seems to be a powerful antioxidant.

Can I smoke CBD Hemp Flower?

Of course you can! Smoking CBD flower, in fact, is one of the fastest and most powerful ways to get your CBD. “Cannabis sativa L. is possibly one of the oldest plants cultivated by man,” says cannabis expert and ethnobotanist Dr. Ethan Russo.

And much of the plant’s popularity was due to what happened when ignited. The historical record certainly backs up this idea. Need some examples? 4,000-year-old cannabis residue has been found in Egypt. The ancient Hebrews may have used cannabis as part of their religious ceremonies. Hemp goes back far enough in China that it seems to have inspired the letter “ma.”

The idea of smoking often gets a bad rap today. But scientific research and real-world experience show that smoking hemp is actually beneficial! It appears that the benefits of hemp’s anti-inflammatory cannabinoids are far stronger than smoke’s harms.

Not to mention that smoking CBD is fun. Those of you who’ve tried it will know that it’s an immersive experience! First, there are scents and flavors and aromas. Then comes a wave of relaxation as the hemp’s cannabinoids begin to enter your bloodstream and soak into your endocannabinoid system. It’s almost a biochemical reminder to sit back, relax, and realize that life is good. While full-spectrum CBD oil and other delivery methods have their place, we can’t think of a more enjoyable way to get healthy.

Many users say that smoking hemp is just as relaxing as having a few puffs of tobacco or a few glasses of wine. Getting your CBD via inhalation is practical, too … especially if you’re doing so with the help of a tasty hemp flower pre-roll.

Can I vape CBD Hemp Flower?

Yep — you can vape Cannaflower’s premium hemp flower, too!

Many of our customers actually like vaping better than smoking or any other method. Some of them say vaping makes it easier to appreciate the nuances and complexity of their favorite strain’s terpene blend.

It’s true: you can easily vape Cannaflower nugs in a dry-herb vaporizor, volcano, or vape pen. Vaping’s growing popularity means that dozens of premium tabletop convection/conduction units are also on the shelves. Regardless of your budget, it should be easy to find something that fits your individual needs.

Vaping offers extra health benefits, too. Hemp users and medical professionals alike agree that vaping is gentler on the lungs than smoking bongs or joints. Even people with asthma can usually vape hemp flower free of side effects.

As if you needed another reason to choose vaping, here’s one more: vaping is convenient. You can vape in the car, during a hike or walk, or on the job. (Just as long as it’s CBD, not THC, you’re vaping.) There’s no need to bring lighters or rolling papers with you.

If you haven’t already, consider vaping some premium CBD hemp flower and experiencing the benefits for yourself. We think you’ll love it.

When can I smoke CBD Hemp Flower?

People new to smokeable hemp may wonder if smoking it at certain times is better than others.

While there’s definitely no bad time to smoke hemp flower, there might be better or worse times, depending on what strain we’re talking about. Our customers have found that Lifter makes an excellent morning strain. Bubba Kush, on the other hand, has pleasantly sedating effects that make it ideal in the evening.

Finding the strain(s) that are right for you is a process, so don’t be afraid to play around with different options — at different times of the day — until you find what works for you!

What makes CBD Hemp Flower so great?

THC and CBD, as amazing as they may be, are just the start. Hemp flower is rich in other phytocompounds, too! Researchers have uncovered tons of “active ingredients.” These include trace cannabinoids, terpenes, flavones, chalcones, and additional phenolic compounds. It’s no wonder they call the plant a “pharmacological treasure trove.”

In a pretty cool example of symbiosis, these plant compounds bind to many of the human body’s built-in receptor systems. These systems include the endocannabinoid system, endorphin system, endovanilloid system, serotonergic system, and dopaminergic system.

It’s true: CBD’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system is just the beginning. The hemp-derived terpene beta-caryophyllene binds to the body’s CB2 receptors just like CBD does. (You don’t have to know all these nitty-gritty details … just know that hemp flower works holistically through a variety of pathways.)

And while many of the compounds in hemp flower are produced in truly trace amounts, every little bit counts. And remember the “entourage effect” from earlier? Cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids seem to work better together.

How is CBD Hemp Flower made?

Hemp, like any other type of cannabis, is an herbal plant that grows annually. It’s also what’s called a photoperiod plant, which means its growing and ripening cycles track with the sun.

We harvest our indoor hemp flower at the peak of its perfection. How? By using cues such as bud development, trichome color, cannabinoid testing, and smell. Our hemp products are also extensively lab tested (and taste-tested, of course) before their release to customers.

Hemp bud has been around for millennia, though recent legal changes mean it’s experienced a recent resurgence. Hemp cultivators are now breeding CBD back into many of the most popular cannabis strains. These strains include OG Kush, Bubba Kush, Hawaiian Haze, Sour Space Candy, Lemon Drop, Rainbow Sherbet, Sour Tsunami, Lifter, Elektra, and more!

Strains that are CBG-rich and CBN (Cannabinol) are also in development. Many of these strains taste and smell just like the high-THC originals. They feel just as good, too … minus the sometimes-unmanageable side effects.

Why has smokable flower become so popular? Probably just the fact that CBD and our chemical makeup are a match made in heaven!

What makes our CBD Hemp Flower special?

Let’s start with the product quality. Our CBD hemp bud is meant to win over even the most dedicated cannabis connoisseurs. It’s not mass-produced like another company’s CBD flowers might be. No way!

Instead, our flower is grown organically using proven natural methods. We use an organic super-soil that has several advantages over other growing mediums. This soil’s natural organisms and probiotics help to keep our plants’ roots happy, healthy, and strong.

Once the time has come, our hemp is harvested at the peak of perfection and lovingly hand-trimmed. After being trimmed our indoor CBD flower undergoes a meticulous 60-day curing process. This process brings out the best of its flavorful terpenes.

Our hemp CBD also stands out because of what it doesn’t contain. Our organic process uses no synthetic nutrients, herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides. At Cannaflower, we believe nature knows best.

Many of these substances are dangerous to consume and even more toxic to inhale. Even synthetic fertilizers that have been labeled “safe for use” aren’t actually safe. They can create carcinogenic compounds once heated and ignited.

The difference between synthetic and organic methods is tangible. Most consumers agree that organic hemp flowers taste better than strains grown with synthetics. Growing hemp in rich, living soil allows it to develop a more complex terpene profile. Organic hemp also offers a smoother smoking experience. There are no residual chemicals from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to create a harsh afterburn.

Is CBD hemp flower legal?

Yes — CBD flower is fully legal nationwide as long as it contains under 0.3% THC (Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) by dry weight. You can thank 2018’s Federal Farm Bill for hemp’s legality. This bill legalized hemp cultivation, processing, distribution, sale, and transport.

Those who smoke legal hemp flower may also encounter blind spots when it comes to drug testing. That’s because the initial “point of care” tests use antibodies that can confuse CBD and other cannabinoids for THC. This type of false positive is rare, but it does happen. If you’re going to smoke hemp regularly, we’d recommend that you let your employer know first. And don’t be too concerned. A false positive can always be corrected by confirmation testing that distinguishes between THC and CBD.

Interestingly enough, Delta-9 THC is the only hemp-derived cannabinoid that’s illegal. Other psychotropic cannabinoids, like Delta-8 THC and THCv, are entirely legal as long as they’re produced from industrial hemp. This has inspired some cultivators to produce strains that contain more of these cannabinoids than usual. Others have developed strains high in CBG, a unique cannabinoid with impressive antibacterial qualities. Some strains are even rich in CBN, a slightly psychotropic cannabinoid that can be great for sleep.

What is the age limit for CBD Flower?

For smokable CBD flower, the legal age limit is 18. Other CBD products are okay for people of any age to take. While CBD products generally aren’t sold to minors, parents can freely give hemp-derived CBD to their children. Even the FDA has approved certain forms of CBD for children with epilepsy.

The path that led to CBD’s legality, in fact, was forged by parents who noticed just how much the cannabinoid helped their epileptic children. It would be a little hypocritical to claim that children should never use CBD — it’s just that smoking CBD probably isn’t their best option. All that said, even young adults seem to benefit from smokeable cannabinoids. Research has correlated cannabis use with lower risks of binge drinking among college students.

Considering that one of these activities (drinking) impacts motor control much more than the other, we know which activity we’d choose! Even high-THC cannabis doesn’t tend to have the downsides that alcohol consumption has.

How are hemp buds different from marijuana?

The biggest difference is the CBD content. Compared to marijuana, CBD flower strains have way more CBD and way less THC. Hemp may also have higher amounts of CBG, CBDa, and CBDv, while marijuana may have more Delta-8 THC, THCa, and THCv.

Marijuana tends to have slightly different terpene profiles, too. Most strains place an emphasis on relaxing terpenes like myrcene, which give it that infamous “couch-lock” effect. Hemp flower, on the other hand, is often rich in more energizing terpenes like beta-caryophyllene, eugenol, and humulene. Marijuana plants can also be shorter and stockier than hemp, with thicker stalks and denser, heavier buds.

But most of these differences are slight. Hemp and marijuana are both members of the cannabis plant family, after all, just with different cannabinoid profiles. Low THC, high CBD cannabis is called hemp, while high THC cannabis is called marijuana. Today’s hemp looks and smells just as good as your favorite cannabis strain.

The last difference we’ll mention is an obvious one. Hemp buds are federally legal, while marijuana buds are not. If you’re going to smoke marijuana, make sure your area’s laws allow it first. And never smoke prior to driving or operating machinery.

What are the benefits of CBD and CBG Flower?

Hemp flower is great at promoting what researchers call homeostasis (full-body balance). It all starts with stress reduction. CBD hemp flower’s most popular uses include alleviating pain, anxiety, inflammation, and sleep-related issues. It’s thought that CBD offers these benefits by activating the endocannabinoid system. The ECS, in turn, prevents the breakdown of certain endocannabinoids in the brain.

The way that cannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system plays a role in regulating perception, pain, stress, appetite, energy, memory, sleep, fertility, and many other physical processes that affect your overall wellbeing. In addition to being powerfully balancing and often relaxing, CBD flower may:

  • Lower stress and anxiety, including generalized anxiety and social anxiety symptoms
  • Improve sleep, by helping to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and making it easier to stay asleep, thanks to soothing and sedative effects
  • Decrease muscle and joint pains, and help to manage chronic pain and involuntary muscle twitching
  • Improve mobility and comfort
  • Promote “relaxed mental focus” and concentration, due to its calming but uplifting effects
  • Alleviate symptoms associated with epilepsy and seizure disorders (in both children and adults)
  • Help to manage digestive symptoms, such as those caused by IBS and inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Reduce psychotic symptoms associated with conditions including schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and psychosis
  • Decrease TMJ symptoms, including pain in the jaw
  • Potentially help to reduce addictive behaviors by decreasing anxiety and cravings

You’re most likely to experience these benefits when using “whole plant medicine.” This type of product leaves the hemp plant’s compounds fully intact instead of using isolates that have gone through more processing.

High-quality CBD flower offers what is commonly referred to as the “entourage effect,” which describes how various compounds in hemp work together synergistically to produce a heightened and more powerful effect. Not only is it more affordable to use bud, but you’ll also experience the benefits immediately. That means less time waiting for relief to set in, and more clarity on which dose is right for you.

One of the most appealing things about CBD’s benefits is that they often come with little to no side effects. The same can’t be said about many prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Another nice thing about flower? You don’t have to rearrange your entire day around it. You’re free to partake of hemp flower at virtually any time of day or night. And you don’t have to avoid driving, watching your children, or getting work done afterward. Hemp flower can be carried along on the go, too.

Because there are many different types of CBD flower, benefits will vary depending on the specific strain that you choose. This comes down to the exact percentage of CBD and other cannabinoids in each unique strain. Some hemp flower strains are more uplifting and energizing, while others are more calming. People may choose to use different strains during the day than at night to achieve desired effects.

CBD may be used in combination with conventional medicines to offer even more benefits. CBD has also been found to have an “opioid-sparing effect,” so much so that some CBD users are able to wean off of opioid medication.

That being said, in the United States, as of late 2020, for legal reasons CBD/hemp can’t be included in products marketed with therapeutic claims. This doesn’t mean that it isn’t a valuable addition to your wellness routine, just that you probably won’t see CBD flower for sale in the same ways as other supplements or medications.

Are there any side effects of CBD Flower strains?

CBD is generally considered safe to consume and non-intoxicating. However, like with any supplement (or even medication), it’s possible to experience certain side effects, especially if someone takes a large amount.

The good news is that while CBD may cause temporary side effects in some people, they are usually very mild and go away relatively quickly. Keep in mind that you will not experience a “high” feeling from inhaling or ingesting CBD. The risk for feeling anxious from CBD is extremely low. Possible side effects that may be caused by CBD can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Dry mouth
  • Lightheadedness
  • Low blood pressure
  • Drowsiness (in high doses)
  • Loss of sensation/numbness in certain parts of the body
  • Changes in appetite (although not nearly as strong as with THC)

People who take medications daily should be aware that there could be interactions between CBD and other substances. Those who take medications for epilepsy, high blood pressure, and/or high blood sugar should speak to their doctor prior to trying CBD.

Will CBD Flower show up on a drug test?

It’s highly unlikely. Drug tests are designed to test for THC, not CBD, and our flower contains such low amounts of THC that it’s completely safe.

Even if an extremely rare false positive drug test occurs, don’t panic! Just ask for confirmation testing, which will provide a more accurate result.

How much CBD is safe to take?

People can choose to take a wide range of doses depending on their specific symptoms, overall health, body size, and goals.

Research suggests that taking 300 milligrams of CBD daily by mouth is safe for most adults. This type of dosing can be continued for up to 6 months (there is less research available that has focused on the effects of taking it for longer).

Some adults can take even higher doses for a shorter duration if they are using it to control more serious symptoms. Few other substances — even natural substances — have such a large “buffer” between the right dose and a dangerous dose. In fact, CBD is virtually impossible to overdose on.

To prevent potential side effects, it’s generally recommended that you start with a low dose. You can gradually increase dosing as needed by taking about 25 to 50% more each week. It’s best to discuss taking high doses with your doctor first, especially if you plan on continuing use for many months. Before giving CBD to a child, we also recommend getting your healthcare provider’s advice and discussing the pros and cons.

Disclaimer: It is still not entirely known if CBD is safe to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Because existing studies have excluded pregnant and nursing women, experts recommend erring on the side of caution in these situations until we know more.
