Hemp Flowers

When it comes to cannabis, it comes in two basic varieties. One is what many refer to as marijuana, and the other is hemp. Both of these types of cannabis produce buds. When it comes to marijuana, this is what consumers are after as this is where the high concentrations of THC exist. When it comes to hemp, however, many people do not appreciate how valuable the flowers or buds actually are. Hemp flowers, in fact, offer many benefits that other parts of the hemp plant do not.

Hemp flowers just like the flowers that come from medical cannabis or medical marijuana plants can be dried and smoked in your preference of a bowl, joint, or blunt. Hemp flowers, however, contain very low concentrations of THC if any at all. The flowers from hemp plants, however, tend to be much higher in CBD content than the buds or flowers produced by medical marijuana.

Just like with medical marijuana there are many different strains of hemp flowers available today that offer a wide variety of different cannabinoid profiles. When it comes to hemp though they are not known as strains but rather cultivars.

Some of the potential health benefits offered by hemp flower include but are not limited to the following;

  • Reduced Stress
  • Reduced Anxiety
  • Reduced Depression
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Increased Focus
  • Increased Energy
  • Decreased Addiction to Nicotine and Other Harmful Substances

Raw hemp flowers can also be consumed in many different ways. Let's look at a few ways in which consumers can benefit from the cannabinoid and terpene profiles of hemp flower.

Juicing Raw Hemp Flower

Juicing raw hemp flower is a great way to benefit from the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the plant. Juicing is in fact the preferred method for many patients that are looking to receive the potential benefits that cannabinoids such as CBD may offer. Juicing is not only safe and discreet, it is a very potent and natural way of benefiting from hemp flower.

Juicing raw hemp is also quite easy. The preferred method is to simply juice it as you would any vegetable within a standard vegetable juicer. You can also use a wheatgrass juicer if you prefer. It is advised to always use fresh hemp flower and not dried bud however when juicing for the best results.

Smoking Raw Hemp Flower

Smoking raw hemp flower is a very common consumption method. This may be due to the fact that this is how patients and consumers have chosen to consume marijuana for many years. Smoking offers an almost instantaneous effect in comparison to consuming raw hemp flower through juicing, in edibles or in tincture form. It is also one of the easiest consumption methods.

Unfortunately, it is thought to be the most dangerous by many. This is because when you add flame to any dried herb material and it combusts it releases potentially harmful carcinogens which in this case would be inhaled by the consumer. While these carcinogens are minute if only consumed from time to time, if you smoke raw hemp flower on a regular basis, they could potentially present some form of hazard to your health though it is quite unlikely.

Dry Vaping Raw Hemp Flower

Dry vaping raw hemp flower is becoming a great alternative for those who prefer an inhalation method but would rather not smoke. Vaping is also thought to be much safer and healthier than smoking due to the fact that no combustion takes place therefore potentially harmful carcinogens are not present like they are when smoking. There are many different dry vape vapourizer devices on the market for purchase today. Some of them can be easily attached to your existing vape pen while others are standalone devices. Most dry herb vapourizers require your bud or flower to be not only dry but also ground finely for the best results.

Making Tinctures with Raw Hemp Flower

Tinctures are a very popular way of medicating with hemp and other cannabis varieties. This isn’t new either. In fact, there are references to people making hemp and cannabis tinctures in cultures globally dating back hundreds of years. Making tinctures from raw hemp flower can be done in a few different ways.

One of the most common is to simply submerge hemp flower in an airtight container and fill it to the top with a high proof alcohol. You then simply allow the concoction to sit for several weeks, occasionally agitating the container to mix the contents. Then you simply strain the alcohol and separate it from the flower material and you have hemp tincture on hand for taking internally or for using on cuts and scrapes to sanitize the area as well as assist with healing.

These are just a few of the ways in which you can benefit from the consumption of hemp flower. Which method is your preferred? Do you have a cultivar that you absolutely love? Let us know in the comments below!
