How to Choose a CBD Hemp Flower Strain
Each hemp flower strain offers unique effects, aromas, and flavors. Consumers can choose CBD flower varieties by checking out strains with diverse genetics, cannabinoid contents, and terpenes profiles. After some trial and error, you’ll begin to notice which types of hemp flowers you prefer.
Indica/Sativa-Dominant Hemp Flowers
In general, sativa-dominant hemp flower strains like Lifter and Hawaiian Haze are excellent for uplifting the spirits and daytime productivity. Indica-dominant CBD flowers, such as Bubba Kush and Special Sauce, are ideally suited for unwinding in the evenings and getting a good night’s rest. Balanced hybrids like Pineapple Express make perfect all-purpose choices.
The effect of hemp flower also depends upon its CBD content. If you’re new to CBD, you may want to start with a lighter strain like Elektra with 19% CBD. Seasoned herb consumers may prefer to try stronger hemp flower varieties, such as Fruity Pebbles.
You may also choose to keep strains with lower and higher CBD content for different purposes. Perhaps, you would prefer a milder strain to ease workday stress and a more potent variety for relaxing sore muscles.
Terpene profiles can tell you a lot about the taste, smell, and effects of CBD hemp strains. Some consumers prefer the complex, fruity flavors offered by strains with rich terpene profiles like Sour Space Candy. However, other people gravitate to hemp flowers with classic tastes and aromas like Sour Diesel.
One of the best ways to test out terpene profiles is to use a dry herb vaporizer with your CBD flower. Since each terpene has a distinct boiling point, you can experiment with temperature settings to taste each one.
Another way to check the flavor and fragrance of multiple strains is to purchase a selection of CBD Pre-Rolls.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is another important cannabinoid found in hemp plants. Scientists call CBG the “Mother of All Cannabinoids” because the compound is a precursor to cannabinoids like CBD, THC, and cannabichromene (CBC). Preliminary research has concluded that CBG has many of the same benefits as CBD.
Our Jack Frost CBG Flower features a thick layer of trichomes and a refreshing pine and citrus aroma.
Benefits of CBD Hemp Flower
CBD and other compounds in hemp flower interact with receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. Our network of ECS receptors works to help keep our bodies in balance by regulating vital functions.
CBD has the ability to interact directly with CB1 endocannabinoid receptors in the central nervous system and CB2 receptors, mostly located in the immune system and peripheral nervous system. CBD also helps the body maintain high levels of our natural endocannabinoid, anandamide.
CBD Helps Combat Free Radicals
Some studies have found that CBD exhibits up to 50% more antioxidant power than vitamins C or E.
CBD Flower May Help Maintain a Glowing Complexion
Human skin is full of both CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors, which affect the performance of lymph cells, sebaceous glands, and nerve endings. A host of studies have shown that CBD can make a valuable contribution to healthy skin.
Other Beneficial Compounds in CBD Hemp Flower
CBD hemp flower and full-spectrum CBD products have a distinct advantage over CBD isolates. All of the various compounds in hemp plants work together to create a beneficial entourage effect. The most significant players that work alongside CBD are terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids.
Terpenes are aromatic oils that plants produce to protect themselves and attract pollinators. The distinct fragrances of spices, flowers, fruits, vegetables, and different cannabis strains are due to various combinations of terpenes. Researchers have also concluded that terpenes may offer a host of therapeutic benefits for humans.
Flavonoids have potent antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp plants contain at least 20 unique flavonoids that contribute to the overall flavor of each strain.
Each cannabinoid adds to hemp’s balancing power by contributing to the entourage effect. Hemp flower contains over 100 cannabinoids besides CBD, including:
- Cannabigerol (CBG)
- Cannabimovone (CBM)
- Delta-8 THC
- Cannabinol (CBN)
- Cannabichromene (CBC)
Frequently Asked Questions About CBD Flower
What is Hemp Flower?
Hemp flowers are the parts of industrial hemp plants that are responsible for producing beneficial compounds like cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Hemp flowers typically include high concentrations of CBD and must contain less than .3% THC by federal law.
How Can I Use CBD Hemp Flower?
Hemp flower is a versatile product that you can enjoy in a wide variety of ways, such as:
- Smoking: You can smoke hemp flowers in joints, pipes, bongs, or with ready-made CBD pre-rolls.
- Vaping: To preserve terpenes, try vaping CBD hemp flowers using a dry herb vaporizer. Vaping CBD flowers offers better flavor, and it’s easier on your lungs. If you enjoy vaping, you may also want to try our CBD vape cartridges.

- Creating concentrates: High-quality CBD flower is perfect for making bubble hash and other solvent-free CBD concentrates.
How Much Hemp Flower Should I Consume?
Every person has a unique metabolism and tolerance level. Ingestion methods also affect dosages. The general rule with any CBD hemp flower, delta-8, or any other cannabis product is to “start low and go slow.”
With CBD edibles, we suggest that beginners try a 10-milligram dose and gauge the results before taking more. You’ll have to wait around 90 minutes to two hours to be able to assess the full effect. At that point, you can decide to have a bit more or take less next time.
If you choose to smoke or vape your CBD flowers, begin with just a puff or two. You can usually judge the effects of smoked or vaped CBD hemp flower within 20 minutes.
Will CBD Hemp Flower Make Me High?
No, CBD doesn’t produce the intoxicating feelings that traditional cannabis does. Hemp flower and other CBD products usually impart a sense of calm relaxation and will not cause any unwanted psychoactive effects. If you are looking for a mildly psychoactive experience, you may want to try products with delta-8 THC, such as Pure Hemp Farms Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges.
Does CBD Flower Have Any Side Effects?
Most people experience no side effects when consuming CBD in moderate amounts. However, higher doses of CBD pay produce mild side-effects, such as:
- Appetite changes
- Dry mouth
Can I Consume Hemp Flower and Other CBD Products with My Prescription Medications?
Unfortunately, CBD interacts with some pharmaceuticals, making them stronger. We suggest that our customers seek the advice of a qualified physician before mixing CBD products with prescription drugs.
Will CBD Flower Register on a Drug Test?
While it is unlikely for CBD to trigger a positive on a drug screening, it is theoretically possible. Hemp flower and full-spectrum CBD products contain trace amounts of other cannabinoids, including up to .3% THC. If you have to pass routine drug screenings, you may want to consider CBD isolates, which contain only cannabidiol.
Is CBD Hemp Flower Legal in the United States?
After Congress passed the landmark Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, industrial hemp and hemp-derived products became federally legal as long as they contain less than .3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). All of our hemp flower, CBD, and delta-8 products register well under the legal limit of .3% THC on third-party lab reports. You may want to store your hemp flowers with a copy of the COA to avoid any confusion with law enforcement.
Please keep in mind that some states have maintained stricter laws regarding hemp flowers and hemp-derived products. We suggest that you consult your state and local regulations to ensure that the products you buy are permitted in your area.
