CBD is the new star of the health and wellness world. The non-psychotropic cannabinoid is used by many to help relieve pain, get to sleep faster, and to reduce inflammation. And while CBD oil is grabbing all the headlines, a new product is fast becoming very popular in the UK and Europe – CBD hemp buds, or flowers.
Raw, dried hemp buds with high levels of CBD look like regular weed, smell like regular weed, but do not get you high like regular weed. When smoked, vaped or cooked with, however, they do provide a relaxing body-high and a mind-calming effect.
Because of a lack of mind-altering effects, CBD hemp buds are perfect for daytime smoking sessions, as a tobacco replacement, or as a substitute for potent ‘street weed’, which can cause negative effects such as anxiety and paranoia.
Personally, I like to mix high-CBD hemp flowers with a small amount of regular weed as a way to counteract the potent effects of high-THC and to allow me to experience a more subtle and enjoyable high.
I have put together this directory to help you find and locate high-quality hemp flowers in the UK. I have personally tried many of these strains and can vouch for them. If you any input or can give some feedback on any strain or company, please comment below or send me an email. Thank you.
