Hemp flower is the flowering bud from the (industrial) hemp plant. Hemp is from the plant species Cannabis sativa and has recently became a Farm bill SEC.7606 protected cash crop. Federally legal hemp flower for retail contains 0.3 percent or less of Delta- 9 THC and is typically high in beneficial CBD (cannabidiol). Even though Hemp flower is legal it still must be used responsibly due to the fact it looks, smells and burns the same as marijuana. Since this product does have a slight amount of THC some hemp smokers have also been known to fail certain drug testing.
What is CBD (cannabidiol)?
CBD is one of several cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant species. This specific molecule is non-psychoactive, and will not alter cognitive function or bring about the marijuana "high" feeling. Over the past several years the use of CBD in many forms have increased. Since this time the health and wellness benefits have increased as well.
