CBD Hemp Flowers Smoking Benefits
Now that you learned a bit about hemp buds, it’s time to find out some key facts surrounding smoking them.

#1 The Entourage Effect
Once you start exploring the CBD flower product marketplace, you will find that there are hundreds of products for sale. In fact, the global CBD market is forecast to exceed $22 billion in value within the next two years.
Some products that have had the most popularity among consumers include CBD capsules and CBD oils.
Those products are ideal for many individuals, but they typically only contain CDB isolate. Product with only isolated CBD mean that consumers miss out on the whole host of benefits other hemp plant components provide.
When smoking hemp buds, you can avail of all the benefits of CBD. In a lot of cases, the beneficial properties of CBD are enhanced by all the other cannabinoids present in hemp buds.
Hemp plant cannabinoids work in synergy with flavonoids, terpenes, and other active compounds to provide smokers with a more enjoyable experience and enhanced health benefits — this is often referred to as the entourage effect.
While CBD isolate can provide many beneficial properties alone, when taken in combination with all the other compounds found in hemp plants, those beneficial properties are often significantly boosted.
#2 More Rapid Results
When smoking hemp buds, you’ll start to experience the effects of the active ingredients at a more rapid rate than you would if you consumed a cannabis edible or hemp oil.
The reason for this is that smoking enables active agents to get into your bloodstream faster.
When any product is consumed orally, there is a delay before the active ingredients enter your bloodstream, as they have to pass through the digestive system. The potency of products consumed orally is also often reduced.
#3 You won’t experience any psychoactive effects.
The majority of people associate the smoking of all types of cannabis-derived products with “getting high”.
If you opt for high-CDP hemp flower buds, however, you won’t experience any psychoactive mind-altering effects.
You’ll get all the benefits of the CBD cannabinoid, but as the THC concentration in those products is less than 0.30%, you won’t get “high”.
#4 Cooking is advisable.
To ensure you get the most out of CBD and various other cannabinoids, you should ensure the mixture is fully heated before trying to smoke it.
Heat activates that beneficial compounds in the cannabinoids to make them more accessible to your body.
#5 What’s the dosage?
The dose of hemp buds required can be more tricky to determine than when consuming other types of CBD products.
Therefore, it’s advisable to begin with small doses and slowly add more as needed.
If you want stronger effects, you can always increase the dose.
By taking the approach of working your way up, you avoid the chance of consuming more than required. It also stops you from burning up all your CBD products.
#6 Perfect your inhalation technique.
It might surprise many to learn that when smoking hemp buds, there is a correct way to inhale.
Try to inhale deeply and slowly.
Envision yourself filling your lungs around two-thirds full of smoke. Doing this enables you to absorb more cannabinoids and ensures you get the most efficiency from your hemp buds.
Try to pause between inhales for a minute or two as well. Doing so will help you to get the most out of your hemp bud supply and avoid overdoing it.
#7 Purchase high-grade hemp buds.
To get the greatest benefits from hemp bud smoking, it’s crucial that you select a high-quality product.
Unfortunately, it’s often not easy to know which CBD products are of high quality. Some things to look out for include:
- Made from organically grown hemp that has not been exposed to toxic pesticides.
- Find out where the hemp originates from — ideally, you want to buy hemp buds that were grown on a US farm to decrease the risk of toxin exposure.
- Opt for products containing high concentrations of CBD for the most potent effects.
- Buy terpene-rich products to enjoy enhanced benefits from the entourage effect.
If you can find a supplier that meets all of the above criteria, you can be more confident that you’ll get safe, effective hemp-derived products.
