People use cannabis products to treat different conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression and even inflammation. Medical cannabis users consume products such as tincture oils, capsules, vapor oils, topical creams and edibles. Smokeable medical cannabis is a relatively recent phenomenon.
In the past, anyone who smoked cannabis was definitely a recreational user with a hit of marijuana. But things have changed, and when you see people smoking cannabis, they may actually be smoking CBD hemp flowers and not marijuana.
There is still a lot of illegal marijuana on the market. So buy your pre-rolls or hemp flowers from the best CBD flower companies to avoid low quality cannabis.
Does CBD Flower Get You High?
CBD flower is just a roll of cannabis buds rich in cannabinol (CBD). But not all cannabis buds are CBD flowers. Only hemp plant buds with less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are packaged as CBD flowers. Since hemp products with a THC content of 0.3% or less are legal in the United States, CBD flowers are legal.
Although CBD flowers may look like marijuana, the two are completely different products. Marijuana comes from cannabis strains with a high THC content, while CBD flower comes from the hemp plant, which has lower levels of THC. THC is the psychoactive element in cannabis, and it’s what gets you high.
Cannabis buds that make marijuana have THC levels of 12% to 20%. CBD flowers come from hemp varieties with very low THC content. Although hemp flowers may contain traces of THC, the level is too low to cause any psychoactive effects.
Does CBD flower have any benefits?
The use of CBD flowers has increased since hemp became federally legal. CBD products have been popular for quite some time, but in the form of tinctures, oils, edibles, and topicals. But CBD flowers have given CBD users another option to consume CBD.
The main benefit of CBD hemp flower is that it offers a rich blend of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other chemicals present throughout the cannabis plant. When you use CBD flowers instead of isolates, you can get a lot more benefits.
People who have always smoked marijuana and want to take advantage of its therapeutic benefits without the side effects can benefit from CBD hemp flowers. THC can cause unwanted side effects such as paranoia and anxiety.
Many people opt for CBD flower because of the entourage effect. Although each of the cannabinoids in the cannabis plant can offer unique therapeutic benefits, they work synergistically, meaning they are best when combined in their natural proportions.
You may want to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of CBD, but it is most effective in the presence of other cannabinoids. CBD has a low affinity for CB1 and CB2 receptors, but interacts with them in other ways. When you use CBD flowers, the other cannabinoids can bind to the endocannabinoid receptors, increasing the benefits.
How to use CBD flower
You can take CBD flowers in 3 ways:
Smoking CBD flowers is an excellent option for marijuana smokers. There is no difference between your regular joint and a roll of CBD flowers except for the THC content. Thus, today’s smokers can enjoy the medicinal benefits of cannabis without getting high.
Since CBD hemp flower is legal, you can get hemp pre-rolls from a licensed dispensary. This is an excellent relief for smokers as they no longer have to buy their joints from the back streets. They can be sure that their joints are safe and of high quality.
Vaping is also another way to consume CBD flowers. For those who want to inhale CBD but don’t want the side effects of combustion, vaping is a safer option. It is becoming more and more popular, especially among young people. The process heats the CBD flower without burning it, but releases cannabinoid-rich vapor.
Smoking and vaping offer high cannabinoid bioavailability and the effect is fast. Cannabinoids reach the bloodstream within minutes. If you prefer inhalation and want immediate effects, you can consider vaping or smoking.
Edibles are also a great way to take your CBD flower, but you have to understand that its effects don’t appear quickly. Edibles undergo presystemic metabolism or first-pass metabolism, a process in which ingested drugs pass through the liver to be processed.
The first-pass effect significantly reduces the concentration of cannabinoids, resulting in lower bioavailability. Therefore, taking edibles with CBD flowers would require higher doses than smoking or vaping to get the same effects. Edibles also take longer to take effect. You may have to wait an hour or more to feel its effects.
CBD flower is an emerging cannabis product with a whole range of cannabinoids to ensure the effect around cannabis. It’s the same with broad spectrum isolate, only it’s not processed.
