CBD flower: a guide to proper use and temperature in the vaporizer
The active ingredient CBD is a legal option for the medical treatment of physical ailments. What exactly CBD flowers are, why they can be legally purchased unlike hemp with THC content and what effect the flowers have, we explain to you in this article. Furthermore, in this guide we answer frequently asked questions from first-time users on the subject of application and temperature setting.
What exactly are CBD flowers and why are they legal?
The legal active ingredient CBD and the illegal active ingredient THC occur in the flower production of hemp plants. The usual hemp has a high amount of THC (a psychoactive substance that is illegal in most countries) and a small amount of CBD. CBD cannabis plants, on the other hand, have only a low THC content (less than 0.3%). Provided the THC content of flowers is below 0.3%, the consumption and possession of CBD cannabis is legal in many countries. Holistic herbal medicine, as practiced in Ayurveda or traditional Chinese medicine, uses the hemp plant as an alternative medicine for health-promoting purposes.
What are the effects of CBD flowers?
CBD hemp should be thought of as a medicinal plant, as CBD does not contain any psychoactive substances, meaning you will not get high when consuming it! Depending on the person, sensitivity and amount taken, a relaxed, pleasant feeling is established in the body without fogging the head – one remains completely sober and everyday life is not affected. However, the described feeling of relaxation helps many users with muscle pain, epilepsy and similar conditions. Some users describe the effect as energetic or sedative, depending on the strain and amount. Many beneficial properties of cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes have been clinically proven.
We recommend consuming a small amount of CBD flowers in the beginning to check the body’s reaction and only then increase the amount if necessary.
How to take CBD flowers?
CBD flowers can be taken in several ways. The most common applications are:
Smoke in a cigarette or pipe
Consume orally e.g. in the form of tea, capsules or cookies
Vaporize in a vaporizer, either as liquid or in the form of dried flowers
Numerous testimonials speak of the use of CBD liquid being less intense than vaporizing CBD flowers. Some users feel that the effect of CBD flower comes right after the first puffs, while it takes a little longer with CBD liquid.
How to fill the vaporizer with CBD flowers?
After the dried flowers are crushed with a grinder, the flower crumbs are added to the material chamber. To get the best result when vaporizing CBD flowers, the right filling is the key! The chamber should not be too full or too little material. As ideal filling quantity applies when the crushed flowers lie loosely on top of each other to allow proper heat circulation. This can be seen particularly well in a tight steam and the uniform discoloration of the spent flowers. Is too little material in the vaporizer, the CBD consumes faster without being able to develop the full effect. However is too much material in the vape, the heat can not distribute evenly. This means that some flowers are steamed “empty”, while other parts still contain ingredients that can not dissolve.
At what temperature should CBD flowers be vaporized?
The right temperature when vaporizing CBD is important because the different active ingredients such as cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes dissolve at different temperatures and are contained in the vapor. To release the beneficial substances from CBD flowers, the vape should be set at a temperature between 160° and 180°. Too high degrees will only cause the CBD to burn unnecessarily. The right temperature is found out by each user after a few trials and is usually based on personal reference.
