The CBD flower: what exactly is it?

CBD flowers are none other than hemp flowers that synthesize a high concentration of CBD or cannabidiol. The latter is a molecule with many virtues, including relaxing and soothing properties for those who consume it without altering their state of consciousness or making them high. Unlike THC, which is also an active ingredient found in hemp and cannabis, cannabidiol has no psychoactive effects. This is the main reason why consuming and using CBD flowers are allowed in many countries such as the United States, Canada, Switzerland and France. However, it is important to note that hemp flowers and cannabis THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) flowers are completely identical in appearance and smell. The way to differentiate between them is to check the CBD level through analysis. Hemp CBD has a low THC content (less than 0.2%) while marijuana has a very high content (more than 10%).
