Buying CBD Flower In The UK - A Guide
Since time immemorial the cannabis plant has grown wild. Historically speaking it is only in relatively recent times that humans have taken a serious interest in its cultivation to serve specific purposes such as medical needs.
While initially much of the interest was focused on creating strains rich in THC, the benefits of CBD oil are finally getting the recognition it deserves.
THC Versus CBD
Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the chemical in the cannabis plant that produces a psychoactive effect which is why it has become a highly controversial part of cannabis cultivation.
In addition to its recreational use (often illegal), THC can also provide numerous medical benefits for both physical and mental conditions.
Cannabidiol or CBD oil is the compound in cannabis that can soothe and relax the body both physically and mentally. This is what makes it so effective as a treatment for a wide range of conditions.
However, attention has largely been focused on CBD oils effectiveness in the treatment of spasms, especially as experienced in epileptic fits.
Although CBD is an illegal substance in many areas, it is slowly being legalized. In the UK its use has already been legalised and CBD products are now readily available in mainstream retail outlets.
High-street brand CBD products are most likely derived from hemp, a derivative of the cannabis strain, Sativa.
The highest strengths of CBD in cannabis products are most like derived from the Cannabis Sativa strain and may only be available from niche retailer outlets specializing in medical-grade CBD products.
Choosing The Right CBD Flower & CBD Bud
When considering which CBD buds and CBD flower will be the best match for your particular condition, the most important thing to look for is the strength of the CBD product.
It is vital to ensure that the CBD strength of the ingredients will match the severity of your condition. In addition, if you will be smoking or vaping CBD flower, you may want to also consider the taste.
Fortunately, the resurgence of interest in cannabis in the UK has encouraged the development of CBD buds and CBD flower in a wide range of flavors.
This means that there is a good chance that you will find a taste you like or that, at the very least, will be acceptable to you. If not, you may want to consider using other methods to consume your CBD flower.
Using CBD Flower & CBD Buds
Vaping CBD flower is a modern alternative to getting the medicinal benefits of CBD flower and you may find it a better way of consuming your CBD buds and flowers.
There are several benefits to vaping CBD flower as opposed to smoking them. It appears that vaping CBD flower can help keep the flowers and buds at their best when subjected to changes in temperatures. It is also a very cost-effective method that can help save you money.
Dry vaping CBD flower offers users the same levels of convenience and speed that regular smoking does with the added benefit of removing the harmful effects of smoke.
Admittedly, vaping CBD flower does require the additional purchase of a dry herb vaporizer but these are very affordable as a one-off purchase compared to the ongoing purchase of papers required for smoking.
If neither option appeals to you, other options to consume your CBD oil include CBD oil drops, CBD capsules, CBD edibles, CBD e-liquids as well as CBD topicals.
