Top 10 Best CBD Flower

Cannabidiol (CBD) can be consumed in several ways – from tinctures to topicals. CBD flower, one of the most popular methods, is considered by many to be the purest method of CBD consumption. CBD flower refers to the hemp buds picked off the cannabis plant and dried prior to consumption. These hemp buds can be used in several ways, the most popular one is by smoking them.

Smoking CBD flowers is one of the quickest ways to feel the effects of CBD. This is because CBD inhalation causes it to enter the bloodstream through our lungs, typically occuring within seconds and providing users with near-instant relief.

Furthermore, CBD flowers come in a variety of strains – offering different cannabinoid and terpene profiles which may provide support for various health conditions. Throughout this article, we are going to share with you our favorite CBD flower products and brands currently on the market, as well as what makes them so special.

Like the smoking of any plant or substance, however, there are some health concerns associated with smoking hemp flowers. Despite the health risks, many CBD users still opt for smoking as it can be one of the most relaxing ways to consume CBD. This is particularly true for users who also smoke cannabis or tobacco as it is a familiar sensation.

We invite you to follow along as we take a deeper look into the best CBD flower.

CBD American Shaman offers a pre-roll of their CBD-rich hemp Cherry Wine strain. Even though pre-rolls tend to cost more than hemp bud, they can be a much better option for newcomers who may not have smoking equipment or have no experience rolling for themselves.

However, if you do have the proper equipment or do not mind rolling, you may get a better deal purchasing CBD American Shaman CBG flower strains. These come in the traditional bud form and can be purchased in the John Snow Flower or Lemon strain. Each purchase comes with 3.5 grams of flower.

  • CBD flower can only be purchased in 4-gram tins

While Koi CBD’s selection of CBD hemp flowers is slim, they offer some of the highest-quality buds currently on the market. This comes as no surprise as Koi CBD is one of the most reputable brands currently out there.

Koi CBD currently offers their flowers in three different strains – Bubba Kush, Legendary OG, and Sour Space Candy. They also offer pre-rolls in four unique strains, including Hawaiian Haze, Lifter, Special Sauce, and Sour Space Candy.

The only major downside we found to Koi CBD’s selection is the fact that their buds can only be purchased in 4-gram tins. While they offer a reasonable price compared to competitors ($24.99), they do not give you the option to save if you want to purchase more.

On the other hand, Lifter is another strain that can provide you with a burst of peaceful energy and is more suitable for users looking for a strain they can smoke throughout the day.

For further information on what each of these strains has to offer, we suggest you look at Blue Ridge’s website. You will find the certificate of analysis (CoA) for each strain where you can find the cannabinoid and terpene profiles and levels.

Tweedle Farms Pros:

  • Most strains can be purchased in full buds, small buds, or shake
  • Many strains have indoor and outdoor options
  • Strains available in a 4-pack Mystery Strain option

Tweedle Farms offer a healthy variety of CBD flower strains – enough strains to keep you coming back for something new, but not too many that you feel overwhelmed with options. They offer strains with varying levels of CBD potency, and each strain is available for purchase in multiple sizes.

One thing we like about Tweedle Farms’ products is that they offer their strains in different formats. For example, the AC/DC strain can be purchased in small buds or shake. Another one of their strains; the White CBG, can be purchased in indoor buds, outdoor buds, or shake.

Since the different formats of each strain carry the same effects and cannabinoid content, the main reason to pick one format over the other is the price. Indoor buds are the most expensive per gram, followed by outdoor buds, small buds, and finally, shake which is the cheapest format of any given strain on a per gram basis.

With a visit to Tweedle Farms’ website, you will find plenty of information and analysis reports for each strain. If the information still leaves you unsure which strain is best for you, you can always opt for their 4-pack Mystery Strain that allows you to try new strains that may help you find the best strains for your unique needs.

Each of their 8 strains can be purchased in 3.5-gram or 7-gram jars. Alternatively, if you are looking for a smaller option, they offer their Suver Haze and Lifter strains in 1-gram bags. In addition to the different sizes of flower, Hempzilla offers some of their strains in pre-rolls, like the Hawaiian Haze and Lifter strains.

While their products include some notable strains like Sour Space Candy, Purple Space Queen, and Lifter, they also include some less popular strains, such as Super Nova CBGa, GalactiC-Punch, and Q-17 CBDa. Some strains can also be purchased in “Private Reserve” which means the product is produced to the highest standards of cannabis flower curing.

Weight options and pricing vary depending on the strain. While most can be purchased between 7 grams and 28 grams (1 ounce), some specialty strains like CBD Caviar (moon rocks) can only be purchased in 1.75 grams to 3 grams.

What is CBD Flower?

CBD flower is the flower of the female hemp plant. When the plant reaches maturity, it will produce a bud (also referred to as the flower) that contains numerous cannabinoids and terpenes. While the natural purpose of these compounds is to attract pollen from male plants, they have also been found to have potential health benefits when consumed by humans.

Not all hemp buds will look the same or have the same effects. This is due to the cannabinoid and terpene profile which varies from one strain to another. Different strains will have different concentrations of CBD, cannabigerol (CBG), and numerous other cannabinoids.

What is the Difference Between Hemp Buds and Marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are nearly identical and are both considered cannabis plants. What separates the two is their cannabinoid levels, particularly the levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Marijuana contains higher levels of THC which is responsible for the “high” people often associate with cannabis. On the other hand, hemp buds contain higher levels of CBD which does not produce the psychoactive effects and does not get its users high.

Under federal law, a cannabis plant can only be defined as hemp (or hemp seed) if it contains 0.3% or less THC – a percentage low enough that it will not cause psychoactivity or the impairment typically associated with marijuana.

Is It Legal to Purchase CBD Flowers Online?

Under the 2018 Farm Bill, industrial hemp is 100% legal to sell. As mentioned above, however, these plants must contain less than 0.3% THC in order to qualify under this regulation.

At the same time, it is important to note that if you live in a state where marijuana is recreationally legalized, you may come across high THC concentrations in some hemp buds. To be certain of the contents of the flower you’re buying, we suggest you look at a manufacturer’s certificate of analysis (CoA) for the particular strain you’re getting. This will identify the cannabinoid profile of the originating plant and indicate CBD and THC levels.

What Does Smoking CBD Flower Do?

Smoking CBD flowers have similar effects to other CBD products. Many users report feeling a sense of relaxation, both in the mind and body. Additionally, numerous studies have reported that CBD can help with several health conditions, including anxiety, pain, and seizures.

One of the perks to smoking CBD flowers as opposed to other methods of consumption is the fact that it enters your bloodstream quicker through the lungs. This subsequently produces almost immediate effects. Such instant relief is ideal for those with conditions that require prompt attention, such as anxiety.

What Are The Best CBD Flower Strains?

The answer to this question is ultimately a matter of preference. Some people prefer a strain that will wake them up and keep them focused while others will favor strains that help them relax and get to sleep.

In order to identify which strain is best for you, we highly suggest you do some research into your particular ailment or needs along with the cannabinoids and terpenes that have been found to help with related symptoms. From there, a quick Google search will inform you of the strains that have high concentrations of the cannabinoids and terpenes you should be seeking.

To give you an idea of how different hemp strains work, here are some of the most notable strains out there:

  • ACDC – also referred to as AC/DC, this hemp strain is known for its relaxing qualities without causing users to feel drowsy or sleepy.
  • Cherry Wine – known for its enticing aroma, Cherry Wine is considered a well-rounded hemp flower for its balanced CBD and cannabinoid profile.
  • Hawaiian Haze – known for its pick-me-up qualities, Hawaiian Haze is an ideal strain for those looking for a hemp strain that can keep them focused and energized.
  • Lifter – as its name suggests, this strain boosts calming energy which many refer to as “lifting the spirits.” Due to its versatile cannabinoid count, Lifter has an ability to also produce an entourage effect.
  • Special Sauce – While Special Sauce is known for its great flavor and scent, it also is a fan favorite for its relaxing effects.

Our Criteria for Best CBD Flower

When it came to choosing the best CBD flower, we had 4 important criteria in mind. These are:

  1. Growing Method – We made sure every hemp bud on this list was grown organically. This means no pesticides or trace chemicals were found in the final product.
  2. Certificate of Analysis – It is important for us to know exactly what is in our hemp buds. One way to identify the cannabinoid and terpene count with each strain is by looking at the certificate of analysis (CoA). This can also inform you if the product contains any contaminants or traces of pesticides.
  3. Company Reputation – Being as the CBD industry is currently unregulated, we made sure to only look at well-known brands that are known for taking their product development and customer safety seriously.
  4. Customer Service – We understand that there are a lot of newcomers to CBD who will most likely have a lot of questions to ask. With that said, we made sure to only choose companies that offer quality customer service.

Safety and Side Effects of CBD Flower

Admittedly, smoking anything is not exactly good for your lungs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cannabis smoke “can harm lung tissues and cause scarring and damage to small blood vessels.”

With this information, it is important to understand that smoking hemp long-term (i.e. on a regular basis for a long period of time) can have negative effects on the lungs. For this reason, if you plan on using CBD regularly, we suggest going with an alternate consumption method like tinctures or edibles.

However, the occasional hemp pre-roll is likely safe enough to be enjoyed. And seeing as CBD flower can have a different effect from other CBD consumption methods, we suggest giving it a try.

CBD is often hailed for having little to no side effects in comparison to prescription medications. However, some users have reported mild feelings of the following side effects coinciding with their consumption of CBD:

  • Appetite changes
  • Diarrhea
  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Weight changes

If you are currently on any prescription medication, we strongly recommend consulting your doctor before consuming CBD – flower or otherwise. While rare, there are some medications that have been reported to have negative interactions with CBD.

Finally, there currently is not enough evidence of CBD’s safety for pregnant or lactating women. Therefore, if you happen to be pregnant or lactating, we would recommend you avoid consuming CBD entirely.
