The popularity of CBD products has soared since 2009. This fame is mainly in part due to the increased support for medicinal and recreational marijuana legislation that has swept the country since then, and for the more widely known benefits with which using CBD has been credited.
Currently, there are thirty-three states where medicinal marijuana is legal and 11 states where it is both medicinally and recreationally legal. CBD, however, is entirely legal in all 50 states, as it is not like the psychoactive counterpart, THC, which is responsible for getting its users high.
Many marijuana growers are also considering the benefits of growing hemp for a variety of reasons, along with harvesting CBD flowers from their hemp crops to sell at a wholesale price. This option is lucrative for those in the CBD sales business because wholesale CBD flower is generally much cheaper than when buying in smaller amounts.
What is CBD Flower?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of over a hundred different cannabinoids found in the marijuana and hemp varieties of the species, Cannabis Sativa. To simplify the understanding, marijuana is the plant-associated predominantly with the medicinal and psychoactive properties of Cannabis, whereas hemp is associated with textiles and other lighter pharmacology.
The harvesting of a CBD flower is from the flowering tops of the hemp plant. Much like the marijuana buds harvested by medicinal growers, CBD flower looks and often smells nearly the same.
The flower is generally dried and smoked for its medicinal properties, whether THC or CBD rich. CBD flower, when smoked, gives its user a relaxed and balanced feeling. Still, it will not get its user high or make him or her experience the state of euphoria as associated with marijuana and THC. CBD can be used to counter the effects of THC. If a marijuana user feels ‘too high,’ he or she can use CBD to return to a balanced state.
CBD Flower Applications
CBD flower, as mentioned, is often smoked to deliver its effects to the user’s bloodstream. The flower can also be crushed, ground, and used as a tea, though this is much less common. You can eat it in various forms too. Whether it is cooked down and baked into brownies, cakes, or cookies, it is at the discretion of the user.
Growers and sellers of CBD often prefer to sell and buy wholesale CBD flowers. This method offers one to both sell and buy at a reduced cost, which is a far more attractive option than buying smaller, individual batches of CBD flower.
For delivery purposes, most users smoke flower out of a glass or metal pipe, or roll it and smoke the flower cigarette in a ‘joint’ style. Though there are other methods to smoking it, such as out of a dry herb vaporizer or atomizer, the latter requires devices that can be quite costly and hard to clean after use.
Considering Using CBD
If you’re considering smoking CBD through any of the methods above, you must also consider the respiratory health risks associated with the practice. If you are considering purchasing large amounts of CBD flower to sell in your shop or online, instead of purchasing small, individual amounts, look into the option of buying CBD flower wholesale.
Wholesale options significantly reduce costs associated with product purchases and allow you to keep more products on-hand when your customers need them.
