What is a Hemp Flower?
The size of the hemp-derived CBD market is growing at fast rates, and yet many consumers are still unsure of where this type of product comes from. With all the CBD-infused products out there, a lot of people may not realize they are all derived from hemp flowers.
Let’s take a look at hemp flower and see what it can bring to the table:
Hemp Flower versus Biomass
Growing the hemp flower requires a bit more care, especially when it comes to harvesting. If biomass growers can rely on commercial methods, flower growers need to show extra care to avoid damaging the plant.
Hemp CBD biomass is harvested and sold with most plant materials included in a product, meaning it includes the flowers, stems, leaves, and stalk. Hemp buds are harvested, processed, and sold as-is, without these other parts of the flower.
Hemp versus Marijuana Flowers
Cannabis aka Marijuana, and hemp plants are members of the same species. Both contain over 100 cannabinoids, and the highest quantities are found in the flowers of the female plants.
A major difference is that hemp contains 0.3% of THC or less, the psychoactive compound of cannabis. If a cannabis plant has less than 0.3%, it’s legally considered hemp and a higher content is considered cannabis.
What Products Can Be Made From Hemp?
You can find any sort of product derived from hemp, similarly to cannabis, such as edibles, essential oils, or the dried hemp bud flower which can be used for smoking. It’s important to note that the laws regarding smoking or vaping hemp vary widely across the US.
