CBD Flowers Ultimate Guide 2022: Everything You Need to Know

What do many people think when they hear “CBD”? One of the first things that may come to their minds is “CBD flowers”. In this article, we would like to provide you with all the essential information about this product, uncover the topic of CBD flowers in many aspects, and give data in our ultimate 2022 guide. This information could be useful for those who would like to start taking CBD as well as experienced CBD consumers. Let’s go!

What is a CBD flower?

The CBD flower (or CBD bud) is a part of the hemp plant, the dried and cured flower of the plant containing high levels of CBD and a decent trace of THC. Usually, the amount of THC inside CBD flowers is less than 0.3%. CBD flower can be the base of other CBD products like CBD and hemp oils. CBD flowers are one of the traditional CBD products.

There is a misconception regarding the meaning of CBD flowers. If you think that CBD flowers are the same as cannabis, you are wrong. The main cannabinoid of CBD flowers is CBD and the amount of THC is less than 0.3% while in weed flowers, for example, it is higher (there is more information about both cannabinoids in the next section). Also, we have a post on our blog that refers to the topic of differences between cannabis, hemp and so-called “marijuana”.

CBD flowers can be grown outdoors or indoors, but in the latter environment, they offer substantially increased quality and potency. At Marry Jane, we produce CBD flowers indoors only from the highest-quality Swiss hemp. Moreover, we provide third-party testing to make sure our products comply with all the laws, standards and requirements.

Possible effects of CBD flowers: Do they have psychoactive effects?

According to several studies, CBD itself is non-psychoactive. On the other hand, THC, the other compound present in the plant, has such effects. Since there is almost no THC in CBD flowers, they can not have a psychoactive effect.

Actually, the possible effects of CBD flowers can depend on the body’s reaction to the product. People are different, and their bodies will show different effects and to different levels. That’s why it’s important to listen to your body and not to overestimate yourself before taking CBD products in general and CBD flowers in particular.

The possible main effects of CBD flowers are:

  • Combating anxiety, stress and depression
  • Better sleep
  • Pain relief

On the other hand, it is important to know about the potential side effects of CBD flowers. They are the following:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Dry mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lung disease

To minimise side effects and get the best from CBD flowers, it is recommended to consult a medical professional before taking the product, purchase the flowers only from trustworthy brands and choose only third-party tested products. 

Are CBD buds legal?

The question of CBD flowers’ legality is one of our cornerstones because, at Marry Jane, we support only the legal use of CBD and products containing it. In many European countries, CBD buds are legal as they contain an allowed amount of THC (less than 0.3%). In Europe, Switzerland allows the highest level of THC, which is 1.0. However, there are still countries in Europe and beyond where CBD flowers are illegal.

Remember that CBD legislation is changing rapidly and can differ not from country to country but also from region to region inside one state, so it’s highly important to check legislation on CBD at global and local levels. In our blog, we have a post about international travel with CBD with tips that could be interesting to you.

How to use CBD flowers?

If you don’t know what to do with CBD flowers, this section is definitely for you. There are several ways CBD flowers can be used. The most common include the following:

  • Adding to food or drink (CBD flowers are edible and can be ingested in foods such as cookies or capsules and drinks like tea);
  • Vaping (The flowers can be vaporised with the so-called “dry herb vaping” method);
  • Smoking (CBD flowers can also be rolled in a special paper and smoked).

Depending on the consumption method, the absorption time of CBD can also differ. Different ways of taking CBD flowers can require extra items or tools. If you lack the items for perfect CBD flower consumption, you can order them in our online or physical stores.

Smoking vs vaping

Smoking and vaping are two of the most popular methods of CBD flower consumption. In this section, we will tell you about the differences, as they can be easily confused.

  • First of all, there is the need for different devices. For smoking CBD flowers, you need rolling paper, while for vaping them, a vaping device made especially for “dry herb vaping” is required. Note that this vaporiser differs from devices made primarily for vaporising e-liquid.
  • Then, they differ on a chemical level. Smoking burns the botanical material while vaping does not. Being heated, the material reaches just the required point where it is not burned but produces steam with the activated cannabinoids.
  • Yes, flowers are not burned while vaping. There is no smoke from it, just vapour. This means that vaping is less smelly than smoking CBD flowers and might be a better decision for indoor use.
  • The steam is much smoother, can be more pleasant than smoke and tastes better.
  • During vaping, CBD flowers can last longer.
  • The possible effects of vaping and smoking CBD flowers can also vary. This is probably because the burned essences one inhales can have additional side effects on the body.
  • And the financial aspect. Vaping CBD flowers is more expensive than smoking due to the equipment mentioned in the first point.

With all these differences, the most important thing is to listen to your body and consult your doctor before taking CBD flowers in either a smoked or vaped form.

CBD varieties: Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid?

Some people think that all CBD hemp flowers are the same. This is not exactly true. There are three main groups of hemp strains: Indica, Sativa and Hybrid. The Indica group of strains are known for their possible sedative effects, so they can be used at night. On the other hand, Sativa strains tend to provide an energetic/uplifting effect and can be used during the day.

The difference between the two has been eliminated by crossing different varieties over the years. Today, almost all varieties are ‘hybrids’, that is, a combination of both. Also, the possible effects of each group are wiped out as more mixed strains come in. Despite this, Sativa is still considered to give a calming effect and Indica, on the contrary, a possible energising effect.

What can determine the possible effects of the strain? Besides the content of CBD and THC in the product, terpenes presented in the flowers play an important role. Other factors like soil and climate type, harvest time and fertilisation method can matter.

With a variety of options, it can be difficult to find the perfect one. Marry Jane is your guide to the world of CBD, and you can always contact our professionals to ask for any information on this topic.

CBD vaping fluids vs flowers

In one of our previous sections, we already analysed different methods of consuming CBD flowers, particularly compared to smoking and vaping. Here, we would like to review the types of products that can be used with these methods: CBD vaping liquids, also called e-liquids (for vaping), and CBD flowers (for smoking).

  • According to different people, the possible effects of CBD flowers are more distinct than those offered by CBD e-liquids.
  • CBD flowers are 100% natural products, while CBD e-liquid contains some chemical transformations and additional substances (like solvents that can potentially become toxic when heated) before it becomes the final product.
  • As CBD e-liquids have additives, unlike CBD flowers, their total CBD content is lower than in the latter.
  • CBD flowers can be cheaper in the long run than CBD e-liquid.
  • CBD flowers and CBD e-liquids by Marry Jane cannot offer identical flavours, so each product offers something unique.

For sure, this is a question of taste. Both of them have their fans, and you can find two lines of these products in our online and physical stores. Find the product that best suits you.
