Some people want to reap the fantastic benefits of the cannabis plant but don’t want to feel high or experience feeling disoriented or confused, but the good news is that Hemp Flowers are widely available these days and are also legal in many places. For them, smoking hemp flowers or even better, vaping, is exactly what they need!
According to the latest estimates, there are roughly 500 compounds inside the Hemp plant, although most of these compounds are yet to be researched or understood fully. One compound that is well known and very popular is CBD – short for Cannabidiol. CBD, whether in the form of oil, softgels, flowers, etc., is considered to be one of the healthiest compounds in the hemp plant as it makes the user feel calm and relaxed but not high or stoned in any way.

CBD is often isolated into an extract from Hemp Plants and comes in various different formats depending on your needs. There are CBD Gummies and Candies – for people who want to ingest their CBD via the stomach. Then there’s CBD Vape Juice (also known as E-liquid) for people who like to vape their CBD and take it into the system via the lungs. This method is preferred by many folks as the effects are felt almost immediately due to quicker absorption and is also an excellent option for ex-smokers or those wanting to give up tobacco.
These are examples of products that are infused with CBD Extracts through a process using Co2 Extraction methods. However, the latest trend in the world of CBD seems to be a leaning towards CBD Flowers (also known as CBD Buds.) These flowers look, smell and taste much like conventional cannabis but don’t get you high. They can also be added to food or more commonly ground up and rolled into a joint, put in a pipe or added to a vaporizer that is suitable for the purpose.
Hemp flowers are specially cultivated to contain high levels of CBD – used in the treatment of an array of conditions including the anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and inflammation. Due to minimal levels of THC in CBD Flowers, users feel no mind-altering properties and just leave you with a sense of well-being. CBD Buds are also legal in the US and many countries in Europe, provided they contain less than 0.3 percent of THC by dry weight.
There are a few great options available to people who have decided they want to try CBD Flowers for the first time, as well as for those wishing to move from THC-heavy strains to CBD-dominant flowers. CBD Flowers, as mentioned, can be ground up and smoked or vaporized. They also come in neat pre-rolled cigarette joints that are sold separately or in packs of three or more. Pre-rolled CBD joints are highly convenient, cost-effective and an excellent choice for those wanting minimal hassle but maximum effect.
CBD Hemp Flowers are thought to have some great benefits and have helped thousands of people to battle their sleeplessness, anxiety, and pain. While a lot of the evidence making a case for CBD is anecdotal at the moment, some legitimate scientific studies have seen a strong connection between CBD as an anti-inflammatory, and also with anxiolytic effects that reduce worry and anxiety.
When purchasing hemp flowers – whether online or via a licensed dispensary – it’s vital you check that the company you are buying CBD from sends their crops for regular testing by a third-party lab. They test the flowers for potency, consistency, and safety, ensuring they meet industry standards and don’t pose any health risks. These third-party labs test the flowers for pesticides, heavy metals and other nasties that could have found their way into the cultivation process.
Hemp flowers are high in CBD and low in THC, but they also contain a full profile of terpenes and other compounds which all work together to achieve the ‘entourage effect’ which is “The enhanced synergistic effect of all the compounds in the cannabis plant working together for the best effects.” The effects that result from high-quality CBD Buds leaves the body and mind relaxed and calm but not confused or disoriented.
Many people who use hemp flowers report they feel a calm sensation whereby a sense of relaxation comes over you. The tension inside the muscles dissipates, and invasive thoughts subside leaving you clear-headed and not foggy as with many high THC strains. The other great thing about hemp flowers is that you can use them throughout the day as they don’t make you lethargic or apathetic.
