The Ultimate Guide To Smokable Hemp Flower And The Top Strains

CBD Hemp Flower Is A Booming Market

The seemingly ever changing status and regulation of CBD and smokable hemp across the country can be confusing, but the demand for CBD flower continues to rise. According to Green Market Report, consumers are choosing smokable hemp flower because it “tastes, looks like, and smokes like marijuana does, without any intoxicating effects. It provides all the positive sides of CBD, and no negative sides of THC, so it is sort of the best of both worlds.” Besides the more well known effects of CBD, research also proves that smoking the best hemp strains also provides additional health benefits like relaxing the body while keeping the head clear, as well as calming symptoms associated with stress, anxiety, pain and inflammation.

What Is A Smokable Hemp Flower? 

Smokable hemp flower is exactly what it sounds like, flower from the hemp plant that you can smoke. It’s similar to marijuana in its treatment but has low THC content (the compound that makes you feel “high”) and high amounts of CBD, along with additional cannabinoids that are known to relax the body and mind, like CBG. These naturally occurring chemicals exist in the hemp plant and are then treated in the same way as high-THC marijuana. This means that the treated hemp flower can be smoked as a CBD or CBG joint, or used in any way that the marijuana flower can be used. The hemp flower can also be used to extract CBD oil or CBN oil that can then be used in tinctures, gummies, lotions and beyond. Because of recent regulatory changes like the Farm Bill, passed in 2018, you can buy smokable CBD and CBG flower products online.

What Are The Benefits of Smoking Hemp Flower?

Smoking hemp isn’t all fun and games. In fact, there’s plenty of research to suggest that consuming CBD flower has a wide range of benefits in both the short and long term. While CBD oil extracted from the hemp plant is beneficial over a long period of time, smoking the treated hemp flower has an immediate effect. CBD flower is proven to reduce the symptoms of anxiety, stress, pain and inflammation. In addition to minimizing negative symptoms, the benefits of smoking hemp also include increasing appetite and having positive effects on mood and energy levels. For those observing a sober or sober-curious lifestyle, smokable hemp flower has also been known to decrease nicotine cravings and can act as a replacement for high THC products, particularly if someone is experiencing negative effects of the intoxicating psychoactive component in marijuana. Talk about a flower with power.

Quick Effects of Smoking CBD

Smoking CBD flower is proven to be the quickest way to experience the full effect of smokable hemp. As mentioned, many people consumer CBD for anxiety, as it is one of the most well-know effects of smokable hemp, but smokable CBD is also proven to aid symptoms of pain, stress and inflammation when used consistently. For those who smoke CBD as a tobacco alternative or to reduce their marijuana use, the best smokable hemp can mimic the quick buzz and lasting calming effects that cigarettes and traditional THC joints provide, without the same negative consequences.

Common Misconceptions About Smokable CBD 

There are a lot of misconceptions around the effects of smoking hemp, so we’re here to clear some things up. People seem to think that hemp and marijuana are different plants, but they both actually come from Cannabis sativa. The main difference is that marijuana has been bred to have high levels of THC (to maximize the intoxicating effects of the plant), while Hemp has been bred to have high levels of CBD.  That being said, people seem to think that CBD flower is completely non-psychoactive, but that’s not necessarily true. When smoking CBD joints, you’ll still get some psychoactive effects (similar to the buzzed feeling you get when you drink a cup of coffee or sneak outside for a tobacco cigarette), but unlike marijuana (with high levels of THC), smokable hemp is non-intoxicating. Hemp contains all of the beneficial compounds of the Cannabis sativa plant, without the impairment and intoxication that comes from marijuana. 

Hemp Flower Buyers Guide

For a product that’s supposed to calm you down, buying the best CBD flower sure is confusing. We have some tips for you to get the best buds out there. When selecting your smokable hemp flower, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. First, start with the company before you explore strains. As a consumer, it’s important to know how the hemp is sourced, treated and delivered to you. Make sure they test their hemp through a third-party lab and make sure you know where in the world your flower is coming from. Basically, transparency is key. You don’t want any secrets when it comes to your nugs. And like anything else, check out consumer reviews and to see if they’re a credible company.

Once you’ve weeded out questionable weed, you can start thinking about your strain. When it comes to smokable hemp flower, there are three main things you should keep in mind. The first thing is potency. This usually presents itself as a percentage and if your flower is coming from a transparent company,  you should also be able to see their third-party lab reports to verify that percentage, along with any additional cannabinoids present. Now we get to the fun part, the second thing to look for when buying grass is flavor. Smokable hemp is a booming business, so with so much to choose from, you might as well buy the tastiest CBD flower available. Flavor is dictated by terpenes, but if that’s too confusing, head to consumer reviews to hear what fellow tokers have to say. Lastly, the third thing to consider before you purchase is the effect, because it’s all about feeling baby.

The Science Behind Hemp

For something bred to chill you out, there sure is a lot of science involved. To introduce you to the nerdy stuff, we’ll start by answering the question: “what is CBD, exactly?” CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol - one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most prevalent of all cannabinoids, coming after THC. Both smokable hemp flower and marijuana flower are members of the cannabis sativa species. It’s a leafy green shrub responsible for the wonderful world of weed we’ve all come to know and love. Any cannabis plant with more than 0.3% THC is considered to be a marijuana plant according the the federal government. Meanwhile, CBD flower is considered to come from plants with under 0.3% THC, making their byproducts federally legal. Want to dig deeper in the nerdy stuff?

Why You Should Choose CBD Flower

Let’s be real, there are countless reasons to choose CBD flower. Whether you’re adding it to your rotation of tobacco, alcohol and marijuana or exploring a sober-curious experience, smokable hemp flower will add a meditative aspect to your daily ritual. It will take you back to the days of smoking your first joint, or inject a little nostalgia for a time you wish you could remember. It can be a subtle escape from stress or a grounding component to your day. CBD, CBG, CBN and seemingly countless other hemp based cannabinoids can provide physical ease and mental relief to start or end your day, without the intoxicating properties of the plant’s psychoactive cousin, marijuana. It seems like there are as many reasons to choose CBD flower as there are benefits to smoking it.

FAQ

What does hemp flower do?

Unlike marijuana, which has high amounts of THC (the compound that makes you feel “high”), smokable hemp has high amounts of CBD along with additional cannabinoids that are known to relax the body and mind, like CBG. These naturally occurring chemicals exist in the hemp plant and are then treated in much the same way as high-THC marijuana so it can be smoked as a CBD or CBG flower joint in much the same way as traditional pre-rolls. The hemp flower can also be used to extract CBD oil or CBN oil that can then be used in tinctures, gummies, lotions and beyond. Because of recent regulatory changes making smokable hemp federally legal, you can buy smokable CBD and CBG flower products online.

Are hemp flowers illegal?

In a nutshell, no. The Farm Bill passed in 2018 defines “hemp” as, in part, “acids, […] with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol [(“THC”)] concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

All smokable hemp products made by Dad Grass utilize the hemp plant and have a THC content at or below the legal limit of 0.3%. Although, you must be 21 or older to purchase or consume the best CBD flower and enjoy our CBG flower. Any marijuana joints that have a THC content above 0.3% are regulated on the state level, so you’ll need to check-in on your local cannabis laws. In the meantime, Dad Grass has plenty to choose from when it comes to legal hemp products like CBD oil and CBN oil, offering a perfect balance of cannabinoids that you can buy online and enjoy in any state.

Will CBD show on a drug test?

Worried about your smokable hemp showing up on a drug test? You might not have to worry too much. According to a 2020 article from Healthgrades.com, “CBD flower will not show up in a drug test because drug tests are not screening for it. Hemp plants may well contain THC, however, so you can fail a drug test after consuming products that have above 0.3% THC. If you take CBD oil (or CBN oil), you should plan accordingly if your work or activities require you to undergo drug testing.” As always, when buying CBD or CBG flower (especially online), you should be aware of where and how the company is sourcing its flower from and exactly which cannabinoids are hiding in your pre rolls. Dad Grass will take away some of your stress, all of our products are verified by third parties for quality and potency, meaning all of our flower and joints have less than 0.3% THC.

Does CBD flower smell?

You bet! Our organic CBD flower will delight the senses long before you light up your smokable hemp, and you can thank terpenes for that. These molecules’ role in our CBG flower, CBD oil and pre rolled joints is massive. Terpenes are the essential plant oils that give scent to various plants like fruits, flowers and trees along with hemp plants. According to The Natural Farmer, “unlike other botanical species, each strain of cannabis has a unique terpene profile.” It turns out that these scents play a big part in the full symphony of 500 or so cannabinoid molecules produced by hemp and cannabis plants alike. It’s the full symphony that makes their flowers valuable, and has our flower, joints and CBN oil so enticing.

The hemp plant is everywhere these days.

Why? Because the method of consumption plays a critical role in how it makes you feel. Inhalation is still considered to be the best delivery method because of how quickly the body absorbs it.

Now put that in your pipe and smoke it!
