Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is enjoying great popularity with more and more people these days and pretty much everyone is familiar with the substance. Not in vain, because it is considered to be calming, sleep-promoting and generally very beneficial. It’s also completely natural and doesn’t cause any side effects. CBD is often taken in the form of oil, but did you know that you can also buy the flowers and use them straight away? In the following sections we will tell you what the benefits of the flowers are, how they are used and what effect they have.
What is CBD anyway?
CBD is a cannabinoid found in female hemp plants. In contrast to THC, which is also found in plants, CBD is not psychoactive and has no sedating effect. It is considered absolutely harmless and not addictive. For this reason, the substance does not fall under the Narcotics Act in Germany and can be legally acquired and ingested. Most of the time you can find CBD in the form of oils, tablets or capsules, but you can also use the pure flowers in different ways. We will present the advantages and properties of these to you below.
What are CBD flowers?
CBD flowers are the flowers of the hemp plant. These contain CBD, but no THC. They don’t get you high, are legal, and absolutely nothing to make you a ‘stoner’ as many people mistakenly think. They also contain cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids and, unlike CBD oils or tablets, you can be sure that the flowers are an unprocessed and therefore often purer product.
How are the flowers used?
The powerful flowers are usually inhaled to absorb the ingredients through the lungs and maintain the positive effects on health. This means that the flowers are first crushed and then smoked. You can roll the flowers into a cigarette, for example, or use a pipe designed for this purpose. If you prefer a gentler variant, a so-called vaporizer can also be used for inhalation. This heats the flowers without burning them, thus protecting the respiratory tract.
If you don’t want to inhale the flowers, you can alternatively add the flowers to your food or prepare a soothing CBD tea. To do this, the flowers are heated on a low flame for about an hour together with some fat (for example coconut oil) so that the ingredients can unfold. This tea is wonderfully digestible and relieves nausea. The perfect solution for people who don’t want to smoke the flowers.
What is the effect of the flowers?
The effects of CBD flowers on physical and mental health are enormously positive and more and more people swear by the powerful substance. One of the advantages is that it works quite quickly after ingestion, thus relieving symptoms. CBD not only alleviates general well-being, but also has a pain-relieving effect, stimulates the appetite and helps to sleep. Help with epilepsy and asthma has also been observed.
Not only do CBD flowers provide relief for physical complaints, people with mental illnesses can also find relief. The substance alleviates anxiety disorders and can help with ADHD and depression. Since CBD does not cause any side effects, it is definitely worth a try and often helps with the first use.
Where do I get the flowers from?
Since the flowers are considered a dietary supplement and are becoming increasingly popular, they are quite easy to get hold of. The easiest way to buy the CBD flowers is through online shops. You will now find a wide range of suppliers here and can conveniently order the flowers to be delivered to your home. Alternatively, you can also try well-stocked head shops, because the flowers can often be bought here too.
When buying, however, it is essential to pay attention to the quality and origin of the flowers, because unfortunately there are always black sheep that offer flowers of poor quality. Of course, these do not have the same positive effects as high-quality specimens. You should therefore pay particular attention to the fact that it is EU industrial hemp, which is listed in the EU variety catalog, because this way you can be sure that it is a certified product that is safe for consumption. If you observe these criteria while buying CBD flowers, then nothing stands in the way of safe consumption and you can sit back and relax and enjoy the great effects.
CBD flowers are easy to get and easy to use. In return, however, you have a whole host of beneficial effects on your body and mind. They are soothing, easy to digest, calming, and because they contain no THC, they will not get you high or affect your productivity. So if you suffer from psychological or physical complaints and would like to try a natural option first, then the flowers are a great alternative. Even for people who do not want to smoke or inhale, there is the possibility of consuming the flowers as tea and Even so, the positive effects can be felt. Just give it a try, you will certainly not be disappointed.
