Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD Hemp Flower?

CBD hemp flower is the smokable bud of the hemp plant. CBD is found in the greatest abundance in the flower of the hemp plant and smokable CBD flower is a premium-grade CBD source for your smoking pleasure.

The hemp plant can be grown indoor, outdoor or in greenhouses and is cared for with extreme attention in order to secure a premium crop. Once the CBD flower is harvested, it gets cured (dried) before the buds are trimmed by hand and packed for consumption.

Harvest of hemp flower usually takes place in October of every year in an event known as “Croptober”. Indoor growers may harvest multiple times per year since they “trick” the plants into faster flowering cycles and boost the hemp flower with powerful added nutrients.

The buds of industrial hemp look, smell and taste just like cannabis but they do not create any psychoactive effect in the consumer. Most consumers smoke CBD buds for the therapeutic benefits of the terpenes in hemp and the rich cannabinoid content.

CBD flower is also known as:

  • CBD bud
  • CBD weed
  • Smokable CBD
  • Hemp flower
  • CBD bud no THC

Will smoking CBD weed make me high?

No.

The “high” feeling that is associated with cannabis is caused by the delta-9 THC and delta-8 THC cannabinoids (and some other forms of THC).
In order to be classified as hemp, the flower must contain 0.3% THC or less. THC levels below .3% are not anywhere near enough to make you feel high. It does, however, help you feel relaxed and mellow. Depending on the terpene profile of your chosen premium hemp flower, you’ll get a different effect.

Is It Legal To Buy And Smoke CBD Buds?

Hemp has been legal at a federal level in the U.S. since December 2018. Some states, however, try to prohibit the use of smokable hemp due its physical and aromatic likeness to cannabis and the difficulty it’s causing law enforcement in telling the two apart.

However, it is proving difficult for states to go against the federal regulations and many lawsuits against states are taking place right now. Compliant online retailers of hemp flower, like OG Gardens, can sell and ship hemp products to all 50 states.

In order to be compliant with federal law, the hemp plant needs to contain no more than .3% Delta-9 THC.

Is the hemp flower lab tested?

All the hemp flower we sell is lab-tested to verify its contents. We pride ourselves on being premium suppliers of only the richest, cleanest, most aromatic flower available on the market.

Go to individual strain pages to see the lab results for that specific strain.

In order to qualify as industrial hemp in the United States, the delta-9 THC content needs to be equal to or below .3% of the dry weight. All our partner farms provide us with a full level of transparency into their testing and manufacturing process so that you can go through the buying process knowing that you are getting a clean and legal product.

Is the delivery discreet?

Yes — If you are not ready for your mailman to know about the benefits of smoking hemp then you can relax…

All the outward appearance of the shipment looks like any other package you would receive from any other online retailer.

Since our premium CBD hemp flower is very aromatic, we make sure to pack in a way that none of the aroma gets out of the bag and that nothing about the outside packaging gives away what is inside.

What Are Cannabinoids?

The most well-known parts of the cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa) are tetrahydrocannabinol THC and CBD cannabidiol. These both come from the cannabinoids family.

Cannabinoids act as chemical compounds that connect to cannabinoid receptors in the human body, producing specific effects. The essential receptors are the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which help the brain and nervous system run smoothly.

Cannabinoid molecules mimic the body’s natural endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system uses endocannabinoids to regulate the body’s overall functioning, also known as homeostasis.

The most common cannabinoids in CBD hemp flower are CBD A, CBD, CBG and CBN.

What does strain mean?

“Strains” in flower products are the slight variations between one flower and another within the same family of plants.

A hemp strain is simply a variation of the plant that has a unique genetic lineage resulting in a unique flavor profile, terpene profile and cannabinoid content. Although the variations may look very small between the strains, the effects can differ greatly.

You also have phenotypes which are variations within a strain.

To make things easier, cannabis and hemp strains are split into three main categories. Indica, Sativa and Hybrid.

Simply put, Indica strains make you feel sleepy or relaxed, Sativas are uplifting and focusing and Hybrids are balanced blends of the two.

Are there any side effects of smoking hemp buds?

If you experience any unwanted side effects when consuming our products you should stop consumption immediately.

  • Feeling sleepy

How do you consume CBD flower?

CBD flower is very versatile!

You can smoke the ground up buds in a joint, bong, pipe or blunt. Many people prefer using a dry herb vaporizer for the best flavor and easy dosing.

You can even cook with the buds, make oils or CBD butter. You are truly only limited by your imagination.

Why Smoke CBD Hemp Flower?

People smoke CBD for a number of reasons. Depending on the CBD percentage and terpene profile of the strain, you will get a different beneficial effect. Some people smoke it to help them cope better with the mental stress and anxiety of everyday life while others smoke CBD flower for the therapeutic and sleep promoting benefits found in the terpenes.

You can also smoke CBD for the pure pleasure of it or to mix with THC flower for more controlled effects.

Can I Vape Hemp Flower?

You sure can! Vaping CBD flower is perhaps the best way to enjoy its flavor and aroma. Just make sure to get a high quality dry herb vaporizer.

Does Hemp Flower Show Up In Drug Tests?

Could it? Yes

Will it? Hard to say…

CBD flower is a full-spectrum hemp product and as such it does contain small but legal amounts of THC. THC is commonly tested for during drug tests and CBD flower can trigger a false positive for cannabis.

Most over-the-counter drug tests are not sensitive enough to pick up on the small amount of THC found in hemp flower, but if you are subject to drug testing and may lose your work or freedom due to a failed drug test, we recommend using CBD isolates over full-spectrum products.

Are There Side Effects To Smoking CBD?

Your body may react negatively to any natural or manmade chemical that you consume. Everyone’s body chemistry is unique and some people have intolerances to things like gluten, certain foods, and medications.

Some uncommon side-effects include: Dry mouth, red eyes, munchies, feeling drowsy, upset stomach and nausea.

How To Choose The Best Smokable Hemp Flower

Hemp flower strains can vary greatly in terms of aroma, taste, effects, cannabinoid makeup, and several other factors.

Generally, sativa strains are preferred by users for daytime use as they usually stimulate the mind and provide less of a deep body relaxation when compared to indica-leaning varieties.

Indica’s conversely are recommended for end of the day use for relaxation and as sleeping aids as they give users a deeper calming body sensation.
We recommend you try several strains and see what works best for you!

How to keep your CBD flower fresh?

You definitely want to store your CBD buds with care. Leaving them exposed to contaminants, heat and other elements will impact the effects, quality and flavor of the buds.

Best is to store the fresh buds in their original packaging, or sealed mason jars in a cool dark place.
