What's The Difference Between Hemp Flower And Weed?

Hemp flower often gets overlooked when people are shopping for CBD products. Many people looking for relief aren't aware that they can get the same cannabis smoking experience without the high.

Often hemp flowers also have a greater amount of CBG in them than regular flower. The dual action of CBD and CBG can provide better relief than CBD alone. Join us as we take an in-depth look at what hemp flower is, how it's different from smoking THC-rich flowers, and where you can find the best hemp flower on the market.

What Is Hemp Flower?

Many people are often confused about what hemp actually is. Don't let the name confuse you—hemp is cannabis, ganja, marijuana—it's all the same thing. The only difference is hemp strains have almost no THC in their flowers. Breeders have been able to breed out the THC from hemp strains, leaving a high amount of CBD, CBG, and other cannabinoids.

Now you might be wondering—how can that be legal to buy outside of a dispensary?

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC are legal on a federal level. As long as the hemp flowers have about 0.3% THC or less, it's perfectly legal.

How Does Hemp Flower Compare to Regular Weed?

Smoking hemp flower provides a very different experience from smoking regular THC-filled flowers. For starters, CBD and CBG flower won't make you feel high. That means that you'll be able to function perfectly fine throughout the day. That also means that there's no risk of experiencing:

● Dry mouth (cottonmouth)

● Red eyes

● Overwhelming anxiety

● Lack of focus

Just because you won't feel the high from THC doesn't mean you won't feel anything. Hemp flower can still make you feel calm, relaxed, and unstressed. The effect from hemp flower can be described as clean. The brain is clear and sharp, but there's a strong sense of well-being within the body.

Of course, different people may feel different effects. Some feel energized, while others feel a little more sleepy. After all, CBD has many potential therapeutic benefits. Scientists studying CBD have found that it may help:

● Reduce pain

● Decrease anxiety and depression

● Protect the brain

● Lower blood pressure

The other great thing about CBD is that you can't have too much. A study found that people who took massive doses of CBD concentrate had almost no adverse reactions. The only effect of having a lot of CBD is a feeling of drowsiness. Of course, that may be great news for those who want to use CBD to help them get a good night's rest.

What Is CBG?

Perhaps you've never heard of cannabigerol (CBG), but it's another cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant. Usually, it's found in tiny amounts alongside THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids.

In regular flower, THC and CBD are the most abundant cannabinoids. Since there's a tiny amount of THC in hemp flowers, CBG can play a more significant role. The interesting thing is, CBG is actually the father of all cannabinoids. That's because CBG is the first cannabinoid formed on hemp when it's growing.

THC and CBD are both produced from CBG as the hemp plant matures. However, there's always a little CBG that remains after the flowers are ready for harvest. In theory, CBG has effects that are similar to both CBD and THC. In practice, CBG doesn't have any psychoactive effects, just like CBD. However, CBG does provide the potential benefit of both CBD and THC. CBG provides a clear head and stimulating effects and may help:

● Reduce pain

● Stimulate appetite

● Lower blood pressure

● Improve focus

Who Is Hemp Flower For?

People who want the ritual of smoking without the high. CBD and CBG flower smells and tastes just as delicious as regular flower. That's because hemp flower still has all of the terpenes you'd find on any regular flower. With CBD and CBG flower, you can maintain a clear head the entire day so you can focus on what you need to get done.

Hemp flower is also great for those who need the benefits of CBD and CBG quickly. CBD or CBG oils, edibles, and tinctures can sometimes take hours to work their magic.

Since hemp flowers are smoked or vaped, the effect is felt almost instantaneously.

Hemp flower is also excellent for people who are trying to quit smoking nicotine. Having a joint of CBD and CBG hemp flowers can replace the cigarette experience. Even the science says that CBD may be beneficial for those trying to quit addictive behaviors.
