CBD hemp flower is considered to be the classic way to get your CBD dose. It resembles cannabis and can be used for vaping, smoking or making various products at home. However, it does not get you high. Just like marijuana, there is a lot of variety when it comes to cannabidiol flower with a great selection of Indica, Sativa and hybrid strains to choose from. In this article, we discuss everything you need to know about the cannabidiol hemp flower.

What is CBD HEMP Flower?

Most of us believe that cannabidiol flower is the same as marijuana. And while they look and smell similar, the effects are quite different. The cannabinoid profiles of the two are totally different. Hemp flower contains a lot of cannabidiol and very less THC, generally less than 0.3 percent. The low-THC, high-CBD profile has enabled this compound to deliver a wide range of therapeutic effects and has led to the cultivation of different strains. Its non-psychoactive nature has made it highly popular among those who look for soothing effects without the heady high associated with cannabis. 


Sativa strains are generally those that make you feel lively. If you feel sluggish and tired, you can try any of these strains to get active. Sativas are perfect during work time when you have some more meetings to handle


These strains are about calmness and relaxation. They work perfectly after a stressful day when you want to sit and relax. The difference with a CBD-rich indica strain is that you don’t feel intoxicated as you sink into your bed and watch your favorite show. 


A cross between Indicas and Sativas, hybrids offer the benefits of both in one. These middle strains of CBD hemp flower work for those who want neither stimulating effects nor too relaxing effects but something in between them. 

Cannabidiol Flower as a Supplement

Those who smoke hemp flower have the same reasons as users of cannabis – pain management. The difference is that CBD-rich hemp provides analgesic, relaxing benefits without any high. While it is not yet clear how effective cannabidiol is for pain, the interaction of the compound with the body’s endocannabinoid system regulates pain sensation. The supplement is also known to help with inflammation which is the root of so many conditions. It also works for an overactive immune system to alleviate the symptoms of various physical ailments. Hemp flower also helps with mood-related disorders like insomnia, anxiety, stress and depression. 

Is Cannabidiol Flower Right For Me?

While CBD flower is an amazing way to consume CBD, it is not the only way. If you don’t like smoking or vaping, you can look for tinctures, CBD topicals and edibles which are more convenient to use and healthier. However, if you are already familiar with smoking, you are sure to love hemp bud. Smoking delivers instant benefits of the compound as the cannabinoids enter the bloodstream through lungs which is faster than ingesting. If you are looking for instant relief, smoking or vaping cannabidiol products is perfect for you. That means you can choose from flower, concentrates or vape juices.
