There are many ways to enjoy smoking hemp flower. There are vapes, cigars, hemp cigarettes, and so much more. If you have never tried smoking or vaping hemp flower but are interested, this post is for you!
What is Hemp Flower?
Hemp flower is the dried flowering buds of the hemp plant. Since legalization in the 2018 Farm Bill, consumption of hemp flower has grown exponentially over the years and for good reason, as smoking hemp flower delivers a wide range of benefits to consumers. In the United States all hemp flower must have 0.3% or less of Delta 9 THC to be federally legal, and though it is not enough THC to induce euphoria, it does contain trace amounts.
There are two main types of smokable hemp flower: dry herb and concentrates. Dry herb is simply whole hemp flowers that have been dried and cured. Concentrates are concentrated oils that have been extracted from the hemp plant and are much more potent than dried flower alone.
Different Ways to Enjoy Hemp Flower
When enjoying hemp flower there are a few ways to administer the flower and enjoy the benefits for yourself. Here are some of the most popular ways to consume hemp flower:
Prerolls are a great way to get your hands on some quality hemp products. Prerolls are dried hemp flower that has been put into a cone shaped paper tube. They are typically filled with one gram or less of dried hemp flower and are great for a quick smoke session.
Moonrocks offer a more potent dose of hemp flower. They are dried hemp buds dipped into a concentrate, typically hash oil, and then are rolled in kief.
There are many types of cigars with hemp in them. Some cigars are made with 100% hemp, while others are a blend of hemp and herbs. Hemp cigars come in many flavors, and often times are made with infused papers to add additional flavor.
Hemp cigarettes are great for a discreet smoke session. Hemp cigarettes are cigarette style tubes filled with dried hemp flower with a filter. They are ideal for easy and accurate dosing.
Infusions, Distillates, and Isolates
When it comes to smoking hemp, the types of products you can consume are almost limitless. Whether you are looking to calm your muscles after an intense work out or relax after a long day, there is a hemp smokable for you! Along with the many ways to enjoy hemp flower, there are also various infusions that can be added to the flower to boost the effects even more. Here are some of the most common infusions we see in hemp flower:
Hemp distillates are highly concentrated cannabinoid extracts from the hemp plant and are often added into hemp flower, prerolls, cigars, and more to boost the potency and effects the flower delivers.
There are various infusions available to add into hemp flower. Two of the most popular are terpenes and botanicals. By adding terpenes and botanicals, not only does it alter the flavor of the flower but also adds additional benefit for the consumer.
Isolates are purified extracts that contain a singular cannabinoid, such as CBD or CBG. When added into hemp flower, isolates help boost the therapeutic benefit felt from the consumer.
Smokable hemp flower is becoming increasingly popular as a way to obtain the benefits of hemp, and with a variety of options for hemp smokables to choose from, the only question is which one should you try first?
