What Is CBD?
Before we dive in, let’s take a refresher on what exactly CBD is. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. There are over 100 cannabinoids that have been discovered. CBD is one of the more commonly known, right behind THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the compound in cannabis that induces psychoactive effects. CBD, on the other hand, does not have psychoactive effects.
How Does CBD Work?
These cannabinoids, including CBD, work by interacting with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a network of receptors located throughout your entire brain and body. There are two types of receptors in the ECS. CB1 receptors are located mainly throughout the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are located throughout the immune system. The compounds found in cannabis interact with your ECS in different ways.
CBD, in particular, works directly on the CB2 receptors which regulate inflammation and immune cell activity. This is the reason that many people turn to CBD for inflammation and pain issues. But we’ll get more into that below!
What Is CBD Flower?
CBD flower is made from hemp flowers. You see, generally, cannabis refers to the whole plant genus. From there, the terms are broken up around legality. Marijuana is a cannabis plant with more than 0.3% THC content. Hemp is a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC content (the legal limit set by the 2018 Farm Bill).
Any flower sold in a marijuana-illegal state must be made from hemp. Some hemp flower has CBD concentrations high enough that the flowers are simply harvested and packaged. But that’s not the case with all hemp flower.
How Is CBD Flower Made?
Some hemp flower still has pretty low concentrations of CBD. This is the reason that many varieties of CBD flower have additional CBD added after harvesting. This happens by spraying the dry flower with pure CBD isolate. This also allows for the CBD concentrations to be quite exact.
CBD Flower Health Benefits
CBD Flower has all the health benefits of any CBD product, with the additional benefits of the flower itself. Many people enjoy the act of smoking. It becomes its own ritual. And, even for those who cannot or do not wish to enjoy THC anymore, sometimes you just want to smoke! Whether you’re going THC-free for work, or because the psychoactive effects are just a little too much for you, CBD flower is a great alternative to still roll up.
CBD flower health benefits also cover all of the general benefits of consuming CBD. These include the following.
CBD’s ability to reduce pain and inflammation is the number one reason our customers are looking for it. Because of the receptors located throughout the body that CBD actively targets, it is most effective at relieving neuropathic pain. This type of pain results from a damaged or deteriorating nervous system, and is present in people with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and neuropathy.
CBD works as a sleep aid by regulating the cortisol production of the brain. Known as the stress hormone, cortisol levels in most people are highest in the morning and low before bedtime. However, for sufferers of insomnia, it is common to have unusually high cortisol levels at nighttime. Luckily, studies have shown CBD to inhibit the brain’s production of cortisol — allowing your brain to calm itself for sleep.
Many of our customers look to CBD to help manage their daily and social anxieties. For starters, that cortisol regulation reducing your stress hormone has a direct correlation with the reduction of anxiety. Further, studies have shown that CBD promotes a sustained anti-depressant effect.
A Final Word
CBD Flower health benefits are enjoyed by people around the world. Whether you can’t smoke THC for work, or THC just doesn’t do it for you anymore and you still want to enjoy a toke, CBD flower is a perfect option. The CBD will help you wind down and relax, without any of the psychoactive (and drug test failing!) effects.
