CBD is the new star of the health and wellness world. The non-psychotropic cannabinoid is used by many to help relieve pain, get to sleep faster, and to reduce inflammation.
And while CBD oil is grabbing all the headlines, a new product is fast becoming very popular in the UK and Europe – CBD-rich hemp flower, or CBD buds.
Raw, dried hemp buds with high levels of CBD look like regular weed, smell like regular weed, but do not get you high like regular weed.
When smoked, vaped or cooked with, however, they do provide a relaxing body-high and a mind-calming effect.
Because of a lack of mind-altering effects, CBD hemp buds are perfect for daytime smoking sessions, as a tobacco replacement, or as a substitute for THC-rich cannabis, which can have some negative effects such as anxiety and paranoia for some people.
Personally, I like to mix high-CBD hemp flower about 50/50 with regular THC-rich weed. The CBD works to counteract the potent effects of THC, allowing me to experience a more relaxed and enjoyable high.
What is CBD flower?
CBD flower is the raw, dried flower of the hemp plant. Hemp being a legally-grown variety of cannabis that has low levels of THC, the compound responsible for the ‘high’ associated with cannabis use.
Instead, hemp can produce high levels of CBD and other cannabinoids like CBG and CBC.
These cannabinoids, along with the rest of the plant’s essential oils, are made in the flower, which, after harvesting, can be cured (dried), trimmed, and then smoked/vaped/processed just like regular cannabis.
Is CBD flower legal in the UK?
High-grade CBD flower has been on sale in the UK since no earlier than late 2017, when I wrote this, but is it actually legal?
It’s not entirely clear. While CBD-rich ‘hemp’ is being openly imported into the UK and sold in full view of the authorities with little interference, it is still cannabis and is probably illegal.
However, any laws against are not being widely enforced and there are signs that even police forces are unsure if hemp flower can be lawful.
How to take CBD flower?
As it’s just like normal weed but without the high, you can use it just like you regular weed. That means:
You can grind up and roll CBD flower into a joint, smoke it in a pipe, or even a bong. Of course, smoking is not the healthiest options as it can damage the lungs.
I love vaping CBD flower. And the quality and affordability of dry herb vapes are improving all the time. They offer a safe way to inhale cannabinoids as they don’t combust the plant the plant material, as combustion creates many harmful chemicals. Here is our list of the best dry herb vapes in the UK.
If you have any experience making hash cakes or weed brownies, then transfer your skill to hemp flower and make yourself some CBD treats. Just like regular weed, CBD flower can be infused and used in countless tasty dishes and gastronomic creations.
