Your Guide to CBD Hemp Flower Buds

CBD Hemp Flower buds continue to grow in popularity. Sales have quadrupled over the past two years as users enjoy both the medicinal and recreational benefits of CBD products. CBD buds are more potent, pure, and abundant in phytocannabinoids than other CBD products available on the market.

If you are just getting started using CBD hemp flower, you need to have a baseline understanding of CBD hemp flower buds and how the effects they produce. Knowing about the CBD bud can help you choose the right strain and get the best results. 

What Is a CBD Bud?

The flower of a hemp plant is called a bud. This part of the flower contains the highest concentration of cannabidiol or CBD and the lowest concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. The distinction is important because CBD produces a different - often lesser - effect on the brain than THC.

CBD buds grow in the wild. However, the product you consume is often grown on indoor and outdoor farms. The products are grown and processed to maximize quality and potency. While some growers add chemicals to their plants, others grow them organically. A CBD bud takes between three and four months to blossom.

Remember. CBD hemp plants and cannabis plants are not the same. While both plants have some of the same properties, cannabis plants contain high levels of THC. Hemp plants contain high levels of CBD. For this reason, hemp flowers do not get you high. Cannabis flowers do get you due to the psychoactive compounds contained in the plant.

Two Main Types of CBD Buds

There are two main types of CBD hemp flower buds.

1. Sativa

Sativa CBD is a CBD hemp flower strain that's categorized as Sativa-dominant. Sativa flowers are often light green with orange hairs. Their long slender leaves and tall, fluffy bud are easy to identify.

Sativa strains have a reputation for producing an uplifting effect. Once you consume the Sativa CBD bud, you should feel a boost in your mood. You may experience an increase in energy or mental clarity. Some people experience a higher level of creativity after consuming Sativa hemp flower.

2. Indica

CBD Indica plants are short and stocky with bushy greenery and chunky leaves that grow wide and broad. They grow faster than Sativa. The Indica plant also produces more buds. Indica strains often have higher levels of CBD, but the THC content isn't necessarily less.

Once you consume Indica CBD hemp flower, you should feel a relaxing sensation. The Indica plant relaxes both the mind and body. For this reason, people often take Indica CBD to reduce anxiety or stress. It is also good for relaxing the muscles and reducing chronic pain.
