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 some conversation about the ins and outs of smokable hemp flower.

So what is hemp? To paraphrase the 2018 Farm Bill which legalized its cultivation: 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 that is partially 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.
The hemp flowers (or nugs), are the inflorescences of the cannabis plant, much like the flowers on a cherry blossom or or tomatoes on the vine. The vast majority of the novel medicinal compounds found in cannabis accumulate in these inflorescences. Once mature, the inflorescences are harvested, dried, and cured, taking a familiar form to anyone who’s purchased a dime bag from their local herbalist.
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. It 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, as these processes can be difficult and dangerous to varying degrees.

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

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

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.
