CBD is one of the proliferating markets with sales projected to reach into billions in the coming year. With fast-evolving research, the new healing prospective of this prodigy molecule is unveiled almost daily.
Of all CBD-infused products, CBD oil has quickly emerged as the most admired way to experience the benefits of CBD. While CBD oil is gaining popularity in the Health and Wellness world, there are also benefits to be had from smoking High CBD strains.
Hemp flowers or Hemp buds are exciting new results of the Hemp and medicinal cannabis movement. Hemp is a strain of Cannabis sativa plant and ‘hemp buds' are the flowers of the Hemp plant. CBD flower is non-psychoactive, unlike THC buds.
CBD flowers are just as efficacious as CBD oils in curing a broad range of ailment, thanks to the intricate network of receptors found all over our body and brain, called the endocannabinoid system.
CBD, whether smoked or ingested as oil, impressively aids in illness like Acne, Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Arthritis, Bipolar Disorder, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Inflammation, and Multiple Sclerosis. Also, CBD assists in a wide range of cancer-related symptoms, like nausea and pain.
While CBD flower and oil are too identical in terms of their therapeutic potential, certain benefits are exclusive to smoking (and vaping) CBD flower.
Hemp buds when smoked escalates the bioavailability of the CBD significantly- the degree and frequency at which CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream. The higher the bioavailability, the more effective the CBD will be and one of the key factors is the mode of administration.
By far, smoking and vaping CBD buds provide the most bioavailability. It is also the fastest and most effective way to feel the effects of CBD. CBD flowers carry a broad range of Cannabinoids, Terpenes, and flavonoids, and they can be experienced simply by smoking. Smoking allows you to experience the entourage effect– the synergistic nature between compounds that make them more coherent in conjunction than alone.
Smoking hemp flower almost certainly exposes you to fewer cancer-causing carcinogens than smoking cigarettes does but that doesn’t mean there are no threats at all. Any kind of smoke is menacing to our lungs – whether it’s from a cigarette, hemp flower, or campfire. Smoke irritates the lungs and increases the risk of chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, cancer, and lung disease.
Vaping CBD lets you circumvent the damaging carcinogens associated with smoking, but low-grade CBD products may contain toxic propellants and thinners. That’s why it’s mandatory to buy the highest quality products when choosing your CBD.
With the passing of 2018 Farm Bill, Hemp flowers are federally legal in all states of the USA. The legal amount of THC that is permitted in a CBD hemp plant is less than 0.3% – well below the threshold to induce psychoactive effects.
