What is CBD Hemp Flower?
CBD Hemp flower is the raw, dried cannabis bud from any cannabis plant containing less than point three percent Delta 9 TCH - legally classified as hemp by the 2018 farm bill. While almost identical in appearance to high THC cannabis flower, hemp flower is most often cultivated for its alternative cannabinoid profiles which highlight CBD (cannabidiol), CBG, and CBN, among others.
Can I smoke CBD?
Absolutely, you can smoke CBD! One of the simplest and most readily available ways to consume CBD involves smoking or vaping the dried CBD flower. Not only is smokable CBD flower gaining popularity because of the ease of consumption but inhalation is also recognized as providing one of the most bioavailable means of delivery for CBD. That means that more CBD is actually delivered through smoking than by any other method of consumption, providing more value to the consumer. Recently, there have been many vendors entering the market who specialize in offering smokable CBD flower that is cultivated to the same exacting standards as medical-grade cannabis.

Is CBD Flower Legal?
We're often asked if CBD Flower is legal or not. The short answer is, yes, all of Cannaflower’s CBD Flower products are 100% legal.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation and sale of hemp at a federal level in the United States. This allows growers to cultivate and sell any part of the hemp plant as long it is grown under a state growing program and tests less than point 3 percent Delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis. While this legislation states that hemp is legal federally, the farm bill defers to the state in terms of regulatory legislation. Therefore, individuals should take it upon themselves to become familiar with their own state's legislation in regards to CBD flower and hemp. Check here to find information about your state.
Since legal CBD flower looks identical to high THC cannabis, we often recommend keeping the packaging with the product to avoid any confusion in regards to the nature of the product.
What are Terpenes and what do they do?
Terpenes are the aromatic oils that give cannabis it’s distinct taste and aroma. Each strain has the potential to develop a unique combination of terpenes that is responsible for giving that strain its particular aroma and flavor, such as citrus, diesel, earth, or berry, to name a few.
What’s the difference between Indica and Sativa?
When looking for the best cannabis flower with low THC for your needs, you are sure to come across the classifications of indica, sativa or hybrid. Indica strains are commonly said to be physically sedating and are often recommended as evening strains to wind down and relax before going to bed, while sativa strains are known to be energizing and uplifting and pair well with work or social activities. The vast majority of CBD flower strains, however, fall within the hybrid category, which represent some combination of both indica and sativa and present a more balanced flower.
