As you enter into the realm of CBD, you may be overwhelmed by the wide range of products and the differences between them. In this guide, we’ll be going over all things hemp flower. But don’t worry, we’ll start with the basics.
First, what is “hemp flower?”
Hemp flower is the dried, mature buds from a female hemp plant that have been cured and trimmed of their unwanted leaf, and contain a high concentration of cannabidiol (CBD).
Is hemp flower the same as cannabis flower?
While looking nearly identical, hemp flower and cannabis flower are not the same. The main difference: hemp flower does not get you high. Hemp flower contains virtually undetectable levels of THC and a high CBD concentration. By contrast, cannabis flower typically has low CBD levels and psychoactive levels of THC.
Choose a hemp flower strain
Similar to cannabis flower strains, different strains of hemp flower may offer users different experiences. Consider your reasons for taking CBD. Are you looking for something to use before bed, or in the morning? Are you looking for a daily strain or one to smoke from time-to-time?
We’ve found the most popular hemp strains to be:
- Lifter CBD Strain
- Hawaiian Haze CBD Strain
- Sour Space Candy CBD Strain
- White CBG Strain
- Special Sauce CBD Strain
- Suver Haze CBD Strain
- Stem Cell CBG Strain
Get to know the terpenes in your hemp flower
When choosing hemp flower, don’t always use CBD levels as a determining factor in your purchases. By this point, you’ve likely heard about terpenes. Terpenes are rising in popularity as a result of increased knowledge and education about the individual contents of the hemp flower. The experience from your hemp flower may even be swayed more by terpenes than CBD.

Top reasons people choose hemp flower as the best way to consume CBD:
While there is no one “best way” to consume CBD, we’ve compiled 5 of the top reasons people buy hemp flower:
1. It’s the fastest-acting way to consume CBD
Smoking fower is the quickest entrance for cannabinoids to reach your endocannabinoid system (ECS) as a result of direct and immediate combustion. You’ve taken a shot before, right?
2. People enjoy the act of smoking/tasting hemp flower
Some people love the taste and smell of cannabis, but don’t prefer the high. Others say the act of smoking helps with concentration. Hemp flower is a great solution for both.
3. Hemp flower is versatile and can be used in bongs and vapes
Get fancy and have fun with it. Whether you prefer rolling up your flower, hitting it out of a bong, or throwing it in a vaporizer; hemp flower does it all.
4. It can be mixed with cannabis for a lighter high or to conserve your stuff
Ever wish that you could smoke a whole joint, but can’t because of too much THC intake? Mixing hemp flower with your cannabis is a great way to mellow your high. Mixing also helps you conserve your cannabis. Win, win.
5. To provide an alternative to people trying to stop smoking tobacco
