There are more than 130 compounds present in the cannabis market. However, none has gained the attention like cannabidiol (CBD). It is getting huge popularity because of its medicinal properties. You know that cannabidiol is the most therapeutic extract of the cannabis plant. Another reason behind its vast popularity is it comes with almost no side effects. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not come with any mind-altering effects. You know CBD has no psychotropic properties of THC, so there is no chance of getting high here.
There are many ways to consume CBD. You can drip CBD oil tinctures beneath the tongue. You can also swallow CBD capsules and tablets. Besides, you can apply CBD ointments and topicals as well. Moreover, vaping CBD e-juice, taking CBD gummies are also popular methods of taking CBD. There are so many options to choose from. Usually, the choice of the method depends on the administration, bioavailability and convenience. Bioavailability is the measurement of the CBD which actually goes into your bloodstream. In terms of bioavailability, CBD vape juice scores high. Similarly, CBD capsules and gummies rank high in terms of convenience.
Nowadays, many CBD users are leaving these traditional methods and welcoming smoking CBD hemp flowers. The question is, ‘why?’.
The fast and foremost thing is hemp flowers are relatively affordable. You know most of the people cannot take CBD vape juice and oil tinctures as they are high in price. Here, CBD hemp flowers are comparatively cheap and possess the same quality (sometimes better) at the same time. Besides, CBD hemp flowers are usually available in dry weight which makes it easier to buy in bulk at a reduced price.
Secondly, people want to take CBD without being unconscious. Most people are afraid of being ‘high’ and that is why CBD hemp flowers are chosen as the first option. You know cannabis is actually a genus of various strains like cannabis indica, cannabis ruderalis, cannabis sativa, etc. Now, CBD hemp flowers are mostly derived from cannabis indica. According to many reports, these cannabis species are famous for their low levels of THC and high levels of CBD. It means CBD hemp flower guarantees the therapeutic properties of CBD without worrying about the effects of THC.
Thirdly, CBD hemp flowers deliver higher bioavailability. The bioavailability of CBD oil is about 20 percent at best. On the contrary, the bioavailability of hemp flower is about 50 percent. It means, if you consume CBD oil, then it will go through your digestive system first. It will lose some of the cannabinoids during the process and the rest will enter into your bloodstream.
On the other hand, CBD hemp flower puts CBD directly into the lungs and the bloodstream. No digestion is necessary during this process, so there is no system loss in this process. Thus, you can enjoy the benefits of CBD by taking lower dosages.
In short, these are the reasons behind its popularity. Marketers tend to believe that this demand will keep growing in the coming years.
