You may have heard about the benefits of CBD, but been hesitant to try it because of its similarity to marijuana. Here’s the deal: smoking CBD flower will not get you “high.”
In fact, to be classified as hemp, CBD flower must contain less than 0.3% delta-9 THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid) by dry weight.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss these 5 benefits of smoking CBD.
Smoking CBD works fast
Smoking CBD increases its bioavailability
CBD flower is always going to be full-spectrum
Smoking CBD is affordable
Smoking CBD is easy and accessible
Smoking CBD works. Fast.
Of all the ways to take cannabidiol, smoking CBD works the fastest. When combusted and inhaled, cannabinoids come in contact with your lung tissue and enter your bloodstream almost immediately.
Smoking CBD increases its bioavailability.
Bioavailability- “the proportion of a substance which enters the circulation when introduced into the body and so is able to have an active effect.”
As opposed to eating and sublingual ingestion (tincture drops under the tongue), smoking CBD increases its overall bioavailability— sometimes up to 50% over the aforementioned methods.
Because CBD itself isn’t water-soluble, it doesn’t readily absorb into the bloodstream in your mouth or in your digestive tract as it does when vaporized CBD enters your lungs.
Get the benefits of full-spectrum hemp by smoking CBD
You may notice descriptors like “broad-spectrum and “full-spectrum” when buying CBD products. Each describes a slightly different way of making and consuming cannabinoids.
By smoking CBD flower, you’re consuming “full-spectrum” hemp, meaning that all the cannabinoids present in the hemp plant are still present in your product. Many believe that this is the best way to consume CBD as it provides the users with the entourage effect— aptly named for the effect produced when all cannabinoids work together to provide feelings of calm and relief.
Smoking CBD is relatively affordable
Because hemp flower requires relatively little processing or added labor, smoking CBD is one of the most affordable ways to consume the most milligrams of CBD.
Avoid the mess by smoking CBD
Another favorite method of consuming CBD is through CBD edibles. It can be fun, rewarding, relaxing, or whatever you decide to make it.
But if you want to skip the fuss, or if you just don’t have time to do some baking, you can always pack a bowl of CBD and be on your way.
