CBD Flower Description
Hemp or CBD flower is bred for its high cannabidiol content and contains many beneficial minor cannabinoids while maintaining a THC content of less than 0.3% in the dried flower. Hemp flower is enjoyed for its calming effects and relief from a multitude of ailments by influencing the human endocannabinoid system.

What is CBD Flower?
When it comes to differentiating cannabis from hemp, genetically speaking, there is very little difference. The term “Hemp” is legally defined as cannabis containing less than 0.3% THC. While hemp and traditional cannabis are extremely similar, the biggest difference between the two is that the low levels of THC in hemp make it much more difficult, if not impossible, to get “high” from smoking the dried flowers.
Hemp flowers contain relatively high levels of cannabinoids including cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), and again, low levels of THC (<0.3%), which work in concert to produce a wide range of effects. With the absence of high levels of THC, dried hemp flowers allow for a highly functional experience.
Does CBD Flower Get You High?
Although CBD flower is non-intoxicating and will not get you “high”, there is a wide range of noticeable, beneficial psychoactive effects. Cannabinoids regulate many vital functions in the body, and can contribute to relief from anxiety, promotion of healthy sleep patterns, major reductions in stress levels, and can even reduce the intensity of cravings relating to addictive substances. Hemp and traditional cannabis share many similarities. However, hemp flower is classified as having a THC content of less than 0.3%, and unlike traditional cannabis, generally does not produce the same range of terpenes. Terpenes are known to modulate the effects of cannabinoids and enhance the effects. Habit remedies this issue by extracting terpenes from traditional cannabis and infuses the hemp buds by curing them together in glass jars under a controlled environment. This process is similar to how whiskey is aged in barrels. Just like whisky absorbs properties from the barrel it’s aged in, our flowers are given time to absorb the unique properties of the cannabis terpenes we extract and are only made available for sale once the curing process is complete.
Is CBD Flower Really Safe?
Habit hemp flower is lab-tested to ensure it is free of harmful pesticides and heavy metals. Hemp can be extremely effective at drawing pesticides and heavy metals from the soil, so it is important to check if the flower has been lab-tested for safety to ensure it does not contain any harmful substances. There has never been an overdose or serious adverse event reported from the use of hemp flower. Consuming cannabis flower is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or children under the age of 18. Anyone with pre-existing medical conditions should check with their physician before consuming cannabis flower.
Is CBD Flower Legal?
Hemp is now legal in all 50 states under the 2018 Farm Bill. Each state has its own specific rules and regulations for compliance. As a general rule, as long as the combined THC and THCA content is less than 0.3%, hemp flower is considered legal.
Keep in mind, because hemp flower still contains small amounts of THC, it is not advisable to consume it if drug testing may be an issue within the next 30 (urine test) to 90 (hair test) days.
Is CBD Flower Legal to Ship?
Hemp flower is legal to ship in all 50 states, given that the THC content is less than 0.3%. It can be difficult for mail security personnel to determine if what is being shipped is truly hemp, or cannabis, without a lab test. On rare occasions, shipments may be detained until proper verification from the seller is provided (such as a lab test, or declaration). If you receive a notification that your shipment has been held up, do not be alarmed as this is normal and is not a cause for concern. Verification will be provided and shipments are generally released within a couple of days.
How Much CBD Flower Should I Use?
The amount of hemp flower one may need will vary based on a few factors. An individual’s weight and metabolism, along with the potency of the flower, will vary the amount needed for one’s particular goal. When smoking hemp flower, the onset of the effects will be felt quickly. So, taking one “hit” at a time from a pipe or hemp joint until the desired effects are reached is a safe way to determine one’s individual needs. Generally speaking, the flower would not need to be weighed out, just break off enough to pack into the bowl of a pipe or other smoking device and have a ball.
Reported Effects of CBD Flower
Generally speaking, the effects of hemp flower are extremely mild and pleasant. Although there are many nuances to the effects based on the specific cannabinoid and terpene content of the flower, the most prominent effects include relaxation, stress relief, promotion of restful sleep, regulation of energy levels, and potential relief from musculoskeletal and nerve issues. The effects from hemp CBD flower are non-intoxicating, meaning it will not cause any distortion in time or reality, and should not have any negative influence in logical decision making.
Common Uses for CBD Flower
Many people find cannabis flower to be extremely helpful for a multitude of ailments. The most common reasons for consuming cannabis flower include relief from anxiety and promotion of restful sleep. Cannabinoids contained in hemp flowers work to reduce stress levels by suppressing the production of cortisol, the “stress hormone”. The human endocannabinoid system plays an essential role in regulating many vital functions including the immune response, metabolism, appetite, memory, the central and peripheral nervous system, and even the reproductive system. The cannabinoids in hemp flower work synergistically with the human endocannabinoid system and can be effective in balancing disorders potentially associated with the functions it regulates.
What to Look for When Buying CBD Flower
When purchasing CBD flower, it is most important to ensure the flower is lab tested for pesticides, as well as heavy metals. Beware of sites making extraordinary claims, and make sure to compare prices so as not to overpay. Growing quality hemp flowers takes years of experience. Understanding the needs of the plant, learning to spot nutrient deficiencies, knowing exactly when to harvest and how to provide the proper environment for the flowers to cure all play a role in the finished product. Photos, lab tests, and strain information can give you a decent understanding of the quality of the flower before you purchase.
Where to Buy CBD Flower
