CBD Bud and High CBD Strains

CBD buds not only look like weed but also smell like weed. Rest assured, there isn't much else similar between the two, as CBD buds will not give you a high.
So why do people still smoke it, you ask?
The increasing popularity of CBD buds is due to their calming and relaxing properties. The compound, which is naturally extracted from the hemp plant does not interfere with any of your cognitive abilities and is considered safe and legal in the UK. As for the smoking part, it is the quickest method of introducing CBD into your bloodstream.

Are CBD Buds Legal in the UK?

CBD is considered legal here in the UK, as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC. This regulation has let the industry grow at a fairly rapid rate. It is now possible to purchase CBD at your local pharmacies and hemp stores.
Although CBD oil is widely available throughout the UK, CBD flowers are still considered grey area products, so they are often labelled as incense, tea flowers, or souvenirs.

CBD Buds vs. CBD Oils: What’s The Difference?

CBD Oil:

CBD is derived naturally from the hemp plant. The THC along with any other unwanted cannabinoids are removed during this extraction process. The result is pure CBD oil. There is often a direct correlation between the effect of oil and the way it's extracted.
The pure CBD extract is then diluted with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil or MCT. This allows you to regulate your CBD oil consumption.

CBD Buds:

High CBD bud strains contain a trace amount of THC, unlike CBD oils. This method of CBD consumption is widely recognized for its therapeutic and non-psychoactive effects.
CBD flowers are known for their quick application, as smoking gives CBD the fastest entry into the bloodstream. These flowers contain numerous cannabinoids, most of which are removed during the CBD oil extraction process. It isn't certain how these cannabinoids work individually, but together these compounds synergize to create CBD's therapeutic effects.

How Do You Use CBD Buds?

In addition to its use as incense or a souvenir for your aunt, CBD buds are generally smoked or vaped. The process involves heating the buds (in order to activate the various cannabinoids) and inhaling the vapour/smoke. The smoke itself is non toxic and harmless to the user.
An estimated 1.4 million UK patients that use THC-rich cannabis prefer combining it with CBD flower inorder to minimise the undesirable effects of weed and maximise the relaxation.

How Do CBD Buds Feel?

Smoking or vaping CBD flowers is different for each strain since there are several types. Each strain produces a relaxing effect regardless of the strain you smoke. CBD has the ability to soothe and relax one at a psychological level without altering their cognitive abilities.
In addition to being soothing physically, regular users report their minds remain unperturbed thus allowing them to focus on whatever task is at hand.
Starting from a low dosage is recommended, as you do not want to have any adverse effects. There is no one size fits all dosage because each individual's diet and metabolism are different. In addition, you might want to try a variety of strains before deciding which one works best for you.
