Hemp flower, the good, the great and the extraordinary

What is hemp flower?
A hemp flower is the dried flower from the hemp plant, related to the cannabis plant just slightly different. The flower contains a full spectrum of cannabinoids as well as terpenes.
Terpenes are the scents of everyday life from your back garden to your cleaning cupboard, they are what make up a plants smell. Due to the flowers amazing health benefits and its similarity to cannabis flowers (besides the THC) hemp flower has become extremely popular throughout the world in the last few years. Making its way to normality for a lot of people.
Hemp flower can taste, smell and look like high THC cannabis only it doesn’t produce a significant amount of THC. Instead, it tends to produce high amounts of cbd among many other cannabinoids. Like THC it can be smoked, vaporised and eaten. Whole hemp flower is still somewhat of a grey area in the UK, some say its totally legal because its within the UK’s THC limit ( 0.2% ) and others say its totally illegal. Always check with your countries rules and regulations.
What are the medicinal benefits to hemp flower?
Ill start by saying this, smoking anything is not going to be good for your lungs. However, hemp creates a whole lot less harmful carcinogens than tobacco. If you haven’t smoked before id highly recommend using a vaporiser such as the sapphire by storm (link site) and the dynavap (link site). Vaporising hemp is greatly more beneficial and safer.
When combusting flower, you lose a lot of the potency from the cannabinoids like cbd, on the other hand vaporising will keep more of that potency therefore acting more effectively. I myself use hemp flower daily to improve mental health, eliminate anxiety and keep negative thoughts at bay. It’s also great for the highly relaxing, slightly euphoric effects, dependant on the terpenes present.
