What is the difference between CBD Hemp Flowers and CBD hemp Oil?
CBD Hemp Flowers are the dried buds of hemp plants. Grown legally by licensed hemp farmers, hemp flowers have been developed to offer high levels of CBD and negligible levels of THC (less than 0.3% in the U.S. and 0.2% in most of Europe). Although it’s CBD oil that is grabbing all the headlines, CBD hemp buds are becoming more popular by the day.
*CBD hemp flowers are unprocessed, which means they are guaranteed to have a full profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and many other unique compounds. CBD in oils may not be from whole plant extractions.
Now Oils that contain concentrations of CBD are known as CBD oils. They usually consist of varying amounts of CBD, as well as a base oil (or carrier oil). This base oil – often hemp seed oil, MCT oil, or another common oil – helps deliver the CBD to your bloodstream, as CBD doesn’t absorb very efficiently by itself.
CBD oil can be formulated in varying concentrations, the most common being between 3% and 40% potency. It can be administered subliminally (under the tongue), topically (via the skin), or added to food and drink.
*While oils can be used in a variety of different ways, as mentioned, CBD hemp flowers are even more versatile. Ideal for vaping, smoking, cooking with, making tinctures from, hemp buds can be used in numerous creative ways.
