Did you know that hemp flower looks just like marijuana flower and has almost exactly the same benefits without the intoxicating high? And thanks to the passage of the Farm Bill in December of 2018, hemp is federally legal.
What Is The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana?
The term “hemp” is used to mean cannabis that contains 0.3 percent or less THC content by dry weight. Hemp flower also generally contains high levels of CBD--around 10%--so the wellness benefits are significant. Hemp flower has the same other beneficial plant compounds as marijuana including other cannabinoids like CBDA, terpenes, and THCA and can be used to support relaxation, focus, sleep, energy and more.
How Do I Pick The Right Strain of Hemp Flower?
Similar to marijuana, hemp flower is typically categorized by three primary strains: Sativa, Hybrid and Indica. Each strain has valuable medicinal properties and effects that should be considered.
Sativa strains tend to have a more cerebral effect and can elevate mood, emotion and creativity. Sativa strains can also be helpful for combating stress, anxiety, and depression. Indica strains are more associated with full-body effects and can be helpful in minimizing aches, discomfort and joint stiffness. Indica can also help promote deep relaxation and sleep. Hybrid strains produce a more balanced effect, combining the benefits of Sativa and Indica strains.
As the cannabis industry evolves, experts are starting to lean away from these widely used terms and starting to use cannabinoid and terpene content to determine general benefits and effects.
Terpenes also play a powerful role in how different strains taste and affect you. One of the most common terpenes found in cannabis strains is Myrcene, which can be a powerful sleep and relaxation aid. Another popular terpene in Limonene, which is commonly known for its ability to elevate moods and help relieve stress.
Our Cherry Blossom hemp pre-roll, for example, is a hybrid strain that has a lovely sweet and floral aroma with cherry and berry flavors. A touch of the terpene Caryophyllene gives Cherry Blossom hemp flower a bit of peppery heat on the lips and in the nose when smoked. Relaxation from Cherry Blossom washes away stress and discomfort and leaves you calm and content.
