,As we launch TheCBGGurus line of products, we thought it relevant to shed some light on the mysterious subject of hemp flower.

What is it, how might one use it, and why? We will answer all of these questions, and hopefully spark more in this conversation about the ins and outs of smokable hemp flower.

What is Hemp Flower?

The hemp flowers (buds, or nugs) are the inflorescences of the cannabis plant, much like the flowers on a cherry blossom or tomatoes on the vine. These flowers are the female reproductive organs of the cannabis plant, allowing the cannabis plant to make seeds and create offspring.

The vast majority of the medicinal compounds found in cannabis accumulate in these flowers. Once mature, the buds are harvested, dried, trimmed, and cured, taking on a form familiar to anyone who’s purchased a dime bag from their local herbalist.

 

Hemp vs. Marijuana

 

So, what is hemp and how is it different from Marijuana? While the words hemp and marijuana describe the cannabis plant, the distinction between hemp and marijuana is a legal one.

To paraphrase the 2018 Farm Bill which legalized the cultivation of hemp: Hemp is Cannabis with a Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of less than 0.3%. As some of you already know, THC is the infamous cannabinoid commonly found in ‘marijuana’ cannabis varieties. It is responsible for that ‘stoned’ sensation.

In contrast, hemp cannabis varieties accumulate significant concentrations of other cannabinoids such as CBD or CBG, while containing a minuscule concentration of THC.

How To Use Hemp Flower

How might one use this hemp flower? Once in its dried form, hemp flower can be used in a variety of ways.

Most commonly it is ground-up and used for smoking. Therefore, you can use hemp flower in the same ways as marijuana is used. Hemp flower can make a fantastic addition to your next bowl, joint, or bong. It can be used by itself or in conjunction with THC dominant cannabis.

Hemp flower can also be infused into various culinary oils, or have its components extracted with a variety of techniques. However, it is highly recommended that you leave the infusion & extraction to the trained & licensed professionals. These processes can be difficult to preform properly and dangerous to varying degrees. Instead use an infused tincture to add hemp to your food and beverages.

Benefits of Using Smokable Hemp Flower

So why smoke hemp flower? We believe that a surprising number of people from different walks of life could benefit from smoking hemp flower.

 

Combine with THC Cannabis

 

For all the stoners out there, young and old, you’ll be happily surprised when you discover the unique and enjoyable effects of mixing your ‘good good’ with CBG and CBD hemp flower!

High quality hemp flower, such as TheCBGGurus Grape Soda CBD 100% Organic hemp flower, is packed full of Terpenes, which will tremendously enhance the flavor of your ganja, and cultivate a more nuanced and therapeutic experience. Combining hemp with your THC can decrease the occurrence of negative and anxious thoughts and create a more clearheaded high. For a more aware, uplifting, stimulating combination, we reccomend sprinkling some CBG Bubble Hash on top of your next THC bowl or joint.

 

Use CBG for Daytime, and CBD for Evening

 

Furthermore, by choosing between CBG and CBD dominant hemp varieties, you can fine tune the intended effects to suit your needs.

Both CBG and CBD offer healing anti-inflammatory effects. However, CBG favors increased awareness, energy and focus, while CBD favors a relaxing, soothing effect.

Stressed out and achy? Grind up some relaxing, soothing, CBD Flower and observe stress and inflammation wash away!

Lacking motivation and energy? Perhaps the uplifting focus of some CBG Flower is what you need!

 

Substitute Hemp for THC

 

Hemp flower could also make a great substitute for your THC cannabis when being ‘high’ isn’t quite appropriate to the circumstances. For those who live in a jurisdiction where marijuana is illegal, hemp flower is federally legal and can be shipped to your doorstep through USPS.

Hemp flower is also non-intoxicating when consumed on its own, so you can have the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without the intensity of its psychedelic effects.

For those curious souls who have never tried smoking cannabis before, hemp flower can provide a pleasurable, safe, legal alternative. Many of our customers who “haven’t smoked pot since the 70s,” or had an experience with weed that was “a bit too intense,” enjoy the mellow and nostalgic effects of hemp flower. Our pre-rolls are packed with 100% certified Organic Hemp Flower make a great option for those looking to enjoy a mellow cannabis experience.

Although everybody’s bodies are different with unique sensitivities, for some, hemp flower provides an opportunity to experience the healing power of cannabis without the overwhelming anxiety, intoxication, and risk of incarceration that users of marijuana might experience.

 

Our Hemp Journey

 

On a personal note, since I discovered hemp flower more two years ago, it has become an indispensable source of healing in my life and part of my daily ritual.

I love how CBG hemp flower enhances my awareness and mood without the jittery angst I might get from a cup of coffee, and how CBD flower soothes my aches and pains after a long day of farming. Hemp flower has changed my life for the better, and we hope to help others in need discover their connection to and healing through cannabis.
