But for many, hemp and CBD are a mystery. Because of stigmas created by false narratives, many believe that using CBD products can get you high, or that people use them recreationally for other purposes. But the fact is, the hemp flower has incredible medical benefits.

Beyond books and books of anecdotal evidence, cannabinoid and hemp use have been shown to have therapeutic benefits like reducing nausea in chemotherapy patients, treating chronic pain, and helping MS patients.

Read on to learn more about the hemp flower, what it is, and how it is grown.

What Is A Hemp Flower?

A hemp flower, otherwise known as a hemp bud, a CBD flower, or CBD bud, is the flower that comes from the hemp plant. It has a high content of CBD, terpenes, and other phytocannabinoids.

What’s Makes Up A Hemp Flower?

A hemp flower is just the bud that comes off of the female plant. Contained in that bud are varying amounts of CBD, phytocannabinoids, aromatic terpenes, trichomes, grains, and more. It’s a simple flower, but one that can smell, taste, and affect the user differently.

How Is It Grown?

Each flower and strain is grown differently. Depending on the farming and manufacturing process, hemp flowers may be grown indoors, hydroponically, or through other various methods.

In addition, strains and varieties may be mixed for their aromatic qualities, CBD, and other phytocannabinoid contents, visual elements, and color. Other times, hemp flower strains will be cultivated to include and mix in different cannabinoids like CBG.

What Makes Hemp Flowers So Popular?

Hemp flower is popular because of its diversity. Cali Vali carries six varieties alone. Users like the flower because it allows them to use it at their own speed, and in the way they like. They can use rolling paper to make their own blunts, or mix and match different strands for their aroma or flavor profiles. Hemp flowers can also be used in as little or large a quantity as is wanted by the user. It’s a relatively affordable option for getting the most use out of the flower.

What Makes Hemp Flowers Different Than Marijuana?

Hemp Flowers are different than marijuana. Marijuana, of course, contains THC, which is classified as intoxicating, while Hemp and CBD products do not. This is because CBD or Hemp products contain less than .3% THC. As such, they are classified as nonintoxicating.

Hemp flower and marijuana bud are often confused, as they look very similar. But in recent years, and because of the growth and sales of CBD products, and the Farm Bill of 2018, their differences and classifications have been brought to the forefront, as CBD use continues to skyrocket.
