The CBD Flower – How Does It Compare to CBD Oil?
Since the legalization of hemp in 2018, the market has exploded with different products made from this plant. A member of the cannabis plant family, hemp is high in cannabidiol or CBD. Unlike marijuana, it has negligible to zero levels of THC. While the popular method of consuming cannabidiol is in the form of oil, the CBD flower is gaining popularity. When searching for pure, high-quality brands, choose Carolinabis.
At Carolinabis, our mission is to help you feel better with CBD products. To ensure quality products, we grow our plants indoors, hydroponically without the use of pesticides. We hand-trim all of our harvested buds as opposed to machine trimming. Trimming involves removing any leaves which may lead to a harsher taste. Hand trimming also guarantees minimal bud loss. Then we slowly dry the buds to maintain optimum potency producing a higher-quality product. While the FDA hasn’t endorsed CBD to treat any illnesses, some studies point to positive results with regular use.
Hemp and Marijuana Are Not the Same
Although hemp and marijuana belong to the same Cannabis plant family, they are not the same. Marijuana contains high levels of THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, the cannabinoid responsible for causing a high. Whereas by law, hemp must contain levels of THC of 0.3% or lower. In North Carolina, the Departments of Agriculture must test hemp crops to determine the THC levels.
At Carolinabis, we take the law seriously. That’s why you’ll see on our website’s product pages, the results of testing from DOA. Additionally, you’ll find testing done by an independent lab reflecting the cannabinoids present and percentages of each product.
Benefits of Using Flowers Over Hemp Oil
One of the least understood systems in your body is the endocannabinoid. It’s an intricate network of receptors in your body system affecting mood and sleep among many other processes. Scientists aren’t sure how exactly how CBD interacts with this system. Some theorize it somehow maximizes the existing cannabinoids in our bodies. Nevertheless, many people have reported positive therapeutic benefits.
Currently, the most popular form of consuming cannabidiol is through hemp oil or CBD oil. While this is a great way to enjoy the benefits of CBD, some people don’t like the taste. Moreover, a large number of people point to the benefits of using the flowers. Primarily, the flowers contain the largest concentration of cannabinoids as well as terpenes and flavonoids. Taken together they produce a greater effect than taken alone. Unfortunately, the extraction process used to manufacture CBD oil loses some of these compounds.
Not All CBD Flower Strains Are Equal
If you’re new to shopping for flowers, you might be surprised at all the options. With over 40 different strains to choose from, how do you know which one to buy? Notably, each strain has its own characteristics, including smell, taste and CBD content. Moreover, producers list varying, diverse benefits.
Furthermore, how do you know the quality of the product you are buying? Interestingly, a study done in 2017 found that almost 70% of online vendors carried products with mislabeled CBD amounts. This means the product could have more or less cannabidiol than advertised. That’s why you should look or ask for a Certificate of Analysis (COA). As mentioned above, our product pages contain our lab results for confidence in buying.
At Carolinabis, we carry 3 strains of hemp flowers: Hawaiian Haze, Suver Haze, and Lifter. Hawaiian Haze has a tropical aroma with a slightly sour, citrus flavor. With a cannabinoid content range of 18-23.3%, the buds are typically large in size and medium density. While Suver Haze has a sour green apple aroma with dense, large buds. It has a CBD range of 17-18.7%. And Lifter has an earthy flavor with a CBD content range of 16-20.5%.
The CBD Flower Packs a Powerful Punch
Some studies have shown consuming Cannabidiol helps in pain management, reduction in anxiety and depression. While hemp oil and CBD oil have been the most popular options, the CBD flower is trending. When searching for a trusted source of hemp products, choose Carolinabis.
