It’s challenging to make: marijuana flowers or marijuana CBD? Well, we’re here to help you decide. Here are some of the key differences between CBD and marijuana flowers and some of the benefits they share. It’s up to you to weigh the different factors and determine what works best.
Marijuana Flowers: Marijuana flowers have been cultivated for thousands of years to breed more muscular strains for industrial and recreational purposes. The cultivation process is specialized, challenging work that involves both care (maintaining high levels of humidity) and precision (the spacing between plants needs to be exact). The final products are highly potent and contain high levels of THC, the compound that gets people “high,” which can be anything from a subtle body buzz to a psychoactive high. (Note: CBD is different from THC. MCT oil and CBN oil aren’t related to the psychoactive compound found in marijuana flowers.)
This leaves many people wondering what all the fuss is about. After all, it’s not as if you can’t find cannabis in its natural state on every street corner of every city in America. And since it’s legal for people over 21 to use cannabis flowers for recreation, it’s easy to assume that everyone knows about them and has used them before.
CBD flowers are not the same thing as marijuana flowers. They tend to be much more expensive than marijuana flowers and contain less THC. Many people using hemp CBD are looking to use them for their anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and anti-pain benefits. They’re taken orally or via tinctures.
-Marijuana CBD: Marijuana flowers that have been bred with a focus on high CBD levels instead of THC levels. Since CBD does not get people “high,” and it’s legal for anyone over 18 to use for medicinal purposes, marijuana flowers with less THC are the way to go for those who want all the benefits without the psychoactive effects.
CBD is not addictive like THC, so there’s no chance of developing a habit of getting hooked in any way. That absence of side effects also makes using marijuana CBD as an alternative medicine much more appealing from a safety standpoint.
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, chemicals that produce a physiological response when introduced into the body (whether they come from marijuana or not). There are more than 100 different cannabinoids, which means there’s a lot of potential for a constant list of symptoms and benefits.
Hemp CBD is a hemp extract that hasn’t been altered. It contains no THC, so it’s completely non-psychoactive and doesn’t have any of the side effects associated with marijuana. Hemp CBD can be taken orally using tinctures or vapes and can also be used to make edibles, skincare products, balms, lotions, oils, and creams.
