Light cannabis flowers, also known as CBD flower or CBD inflorescences, are marijuana flowers without THC (or rather, with THC at negligible percentages) but with a high content of CBD, the beneficial cannabinoid in hemp. They are therefore hemp flowers selected for their high CBD and low THC content that are carefully harvested, cured and dried, and then vacuum-packed in order to preserve their aromas and properties as much as possible. Contrary to popular belief, hemp and marijuana are not different plants. Both are Cannabis sativa and the only difference is the dominant cannabinoid.
CBD flowers and marijuana are two variants of Cannabis sativa and therefore look very similar. They also have a similar smell since this aroma depends on the terpenes that both variants contain. The main difference is the THC content: the CBD flower contains less than 0.2% THC, whereas marijuana can have more than 30% THC. It is the THC that has psychoactive effects, which is why the CBD flower does not produce the same intoxicating effect as marijuana.
This substantial difference is not clearly visible, which is why distinguishing CBD flower from weed is difficult if one does not have an experienced eye. Experience is what helps most to notice differences in smell and appearance. What is obvious to even the most inexperienced are the differences in plant shape and leaf size.
Indeed, hemp plants grow tall and thin compared to marijuana plants, which are shorter and bushy. Marijuana plants also produce more flowers in dense clusters, whereas hemp flowers are more sparse.
In addition, hemp plants grow thinner leaves than marijuana plants, which tend to have thicker, fatter leaves.
However, it must be taken into account that in recent years when CBD strains are increasingly sought after/cultivated these differences are becoming less and less obvious.
There is no simple answer as to how long CBD stays in the system. It depends on a number of factors such as: physical and genetic factors, the last time it was taken, dosage and frequency of use. In any case, CBD disappears from the body relatively quickly. If used orally in about 11-28 days, if ingested in only a few hours.
Most drug tests select THC, rather than CBD. However, as mentioned, CBD contains traces of THC and efficacy and timing of detection also depend on the different types of tests.
In urine tests, the detection window for THC depends mainly on the dose taken and the frequency of use, but, in general, traces can be detected between three days and two weeks after the last intake.
Hair tests detect drugs over a long period of time (up to three months) but are very rare for THC and CBD for commercial or legal reasons. As are saliva tests through which drug components can be detected within minutes after intake and can last up to 36 hours, depending on dosage and frequency of use.
With regard to blood tests, on the other hand, the speed with which THC is eliminated increases considerably: only about five hours after intake. However, THC metabolites and thus CBD can be present for up to a week.
Note that if CBD products are consumed in large quantities and on a regular basis, this test, like the others, may detect it for longer.
The ways are different and the choice depends on personal taste and needs. The most popular is the joint, otherwise known as the ‘rod’. Rolling a joint is quite simple and inexpensive. All that is needed are long papers and paper filters. It is advisable to use a grinder, which will make your weed easier to roll. Tobacco is often added to decrease the overall cost of the joint.
Another method is the bong: an object that cools the smoke through water. The weed to be smoked is placed already chopped in the brazier and then ignited with a lighter. While lighting, one only has to ‘pull’ with the mouth resting on the top, and the smoke will do the rest.
The cilum is perhaps the oldest instrument invented for inhaling the fumes of burning hashish or inflorescence. It does not have the division between brazier and mouthpiece where the lips rest, it resembles a long hollow truncated cone with a filter stone inside.
Finally, the vaporizer is an electric tool that allows the herb to be heated without burning it, i.e. without combustion and thus in a way that is healthier for the lungs. The inflorescences are brought to the point of evaporation of the active ingredients, which are responsible for the above-mentioned beneficial effects. Vapourisers save on the amount of weed to be used and guarantee the quality of the smoke to be inhaled.
A popular variant of pocket vaporisers is the Volcano, a table-top vaporiser very popular in Amsterdam coffee shops. It differs from the vaporiser in that with a Volcano you inhale from a balloon that slowly inflates during the vaping process. It represents the healthiest way to take cannabis.
With some care and the right equipment, extracting the oil from the inflorescences is within the reach of any adult and results in a safe product. Of course, it will not have the same quality as professional CBD oils that follow more complex methods of extraction and filtration to achieve optimal concentrations. However, it is a viable solution for those who like to try their hand at self-production and will still yield a satisfactory product. Here is how to make cannabis oil using a simple and effective method.
