You might think you’ve scoured the internet of all the CBD articles, researches, and studies. After all these years, it has been a household name, and you’ve might have been a veteran consumer or a curious lurker. But are you sure you haven’t overlooked the most potent, densest part of the hemp plant? Yes, I’m talking about the flower, specifically the female hemp plant’s flower.
Studies have popped up here and there about CBD products being effective. One of them is this study where the proponent has described a large accumulation of phytocannabinoids in female hemp’s flowers, compared to other parts of the plant. It was also referred to as one of the two parts of this plant to have potent bioactive potential, the pair being hemp leaves.
Frequently Searched Questions Online You Might Be Asking Too
If you’ve read all the articles, chances are you might have missed these questions other people have keyed in the Google search engine. Read on to find out if some of these questions are yours as well.
Are CBD flowers psychoactive?
If you’re aware of the biology of this species, then the clear answer is no, it does not have any psychoactive potential. Cannabidiol, one of the cannabinoids found in multitudes, has very little amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) organically, and when manufactured into products, companies tend to remove this compound entirely. This is because consumers that take cannabidiol choose it over marijuana for its non-psychoactive characteristics. It is much more convenient, to some, to have the effects without the “high” feeling.
Other than that, some may add less than 0.3% THC, an amount that won’t induce the high feeling, just to trigger a biological process called the entourage effect. This effect happens when one or more cannabinoids work together in the body to enhance the therapeutic benefits it brings (Cannabidiol and Tetrahydrocannabinol might be two of those compounds).
Will CBD flowers make you fail a drug test?
Because of its sister species, marijuana’s a bad reputation of being a schedule 1 drug, many might assume hemp and Cannabidiol will also cause someone to fail a drug test. Many adults have workplaces that require them frequent drug tests, and as much as they want to unwind and use marijuana for recreational purposes, they are forced to refrain. But will using CBD flowers cause this failure as well?
It is very unlikely. Most, if not all, Cannabidiol products are manufactured without THC. What the tests ultimately find in your urine and other subjects is the presence of THC or its metabolites. This site: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/does-cbd-show-up-on-a-drug-test has taken into a deeper discussion about how drug tests work, and how it connects to THC and CBD. If the company you get your Cannabidiol products from are reputable (and you should make sure), then there’s probably nothing to worry about.
Are CBD flowers safe to use?
As a first-timer, who wouldn’t be worried about their bodily safety, especially if they still have the notion about Cannabidiol being just another name for marijuana? A reasonable question, and here’s nothing but the full truth: Yes. CBD flowers are safe to use. To add, they are safer than medical marijuana, and any other THC-derived products.
Studies show that this compound brings about no fatal adverse effects. It is also incapable of inducing toxicity, overdose, addiction, and dependency. In fact, it is found to help patients in their rehabilitation to overcome their relapses. The side-effects may bring only accounts for mild symptoms, such as drowsiness and slight fatigue.
It is so safe that some companies have started a line of Cannabidiol products exclusive for animals, such as cats, dogs, horses, etc. The products range from oils to treats and have so far found no adverse effects on them as well.
Are CBD flowers Legal (in my state)?
All CBD-derived products (given they are reputable) follow the policies given by the FDA. They state that any product having more than 0.3% THC content automatically becomes an unregulated and thus illegal product to use. Other than that, oils, edibles, hemp, and vape juices are all schedule 5, meaning they have low to no potential of being abused. Always be sure to check the site and their specifications found there.
No matter how much we research, it always comes to light that Cannabidiol is an ever-changing topic full of benefits and untapped potential. With these questions, we hope this knowledge about hemp and its flowers has given you additional learnings to use for either safety or awareness.
