CBD Cannabis? I thought Cannabis got you high…
For many people, taking cannabis is just a bit over the top. Maybe they are intolerant to the high amount of THC, or they have some other issues which don’t let them use the plant without potential side effects.
As a result, many people experience things such as severe anxiety, vertigo, vomiting, and so on. The list is pretty big. And this is fine. People are different, and thus, they react differently in specific situations. It’s what makes us humans.
The side effects of cannabis are rare, and in most cases, you won’t be getting them (don’t be scared). Still, for that handful of individuals who do get them, the question arises – is there a way to consume cannabis and enjoy its effects without the possible sides? Yes, there is. CBD flower.\
In this article, we’ll talk more about this type of flower and CBD products in general. If you aren’t aware something like that existed – don’t feel bad. It’s a relatively new thing, and in this article, you’ll learn the basics of it and why it’s becoming more and more popular in the last couple of years.
So, if you are a cannabis lover but don’t want to experience nasty sides that can occur – we have something for you. Stay tuned to see what it’s all about.
What Is a CBD Flower?
CBD flower is a type of cannabis bud that helps you feel relaxed – the same as cannabis. But, one thing that makes CBD flowers different from a regular cannabis bud is the fact that it lacks the hard high you get from the real thing. If you ask other people, this can be both a good and a bad thing. Of course, someone who likes potent cannabis and doesn’t mind getting slight vertigo or anxiety will say that CBD is weak and that you should just stick to the real thing. But, CBD products aren’t tailored for users such as those.
We can freely say that it’s now apparent that THC and all cannabis-related products have a lot of benefits for the health of people who use it. Of course, it goes without saying that to experience those benefits, you mustn’t overdo it. There is a thin line between using cannabis because of its beneficial aspects and abusing it. But, the fact that only ten years ago, cannabis was treated as a harmful “drug” and had the worst stigma possible around it makes you realise that we’ve come a long way. Nowadays, in many countries, cannabis is legalized, and in most states, you can use it freely with a prescription for medical reasons.
Still, cannabis, in all of its glory, can have some harmful effects when using, such as the ones mentioned above. This is where CBD takes the spotlight. CBD products will give you positive effects from cannabis while dampening the bad ones which can occur. As a result, you can enjoy the excellent session of smoking, without feeling anxiety or vertigo after it. So, in a nutshell, CBD products such as CBD flowers are made for people who can’t tolerate the classic cannabis plant because of the bad side effects it has – but still want to enjoy the high and relaxation.
Does It Get Me High?
This is a good question and has been a matter of debate for many years. Of course, CBD products don’t hit as strong as the real stuff, but they are far from weak. And there are types of flowers which can hit very hard. The short answer is – it all depends. If you are a veteran cannabis user that has years of usage under the belt, then CBD products might be too weak for you. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t feel the effects.
You’ll feel them, and the more you use the products, the more apparent it will be that they can hit reasonably strong. On the other hand, if you find out that a regular joint isn’t for you and that you experience bad side effects, then CBD flower serves as a perfect substitution, and you probably won’t feel any difference. In any case, you’ll surely get a good hit.
As with standard cannabis, there are different variations of CBD flowers. It comes with a different percentage of THC and CBD in it, and based on those numbers, you’ll get more or less high. The way CBD works, as mentioned above, is by enhancing the THC effects without really getting you super high. You’ll feel a general relaxation, pain relief, and bliss. A general rule here is that if the flower has a high ratio of CBD to THC, it’s a good pick. This means that the bad THC effects won’t hit you hard, but you’ll still feel the sweet hit of good old THC and its positive impact. You can start by consuming relatively low doses of high CBD flowers and work your way towards higher doses.
And let’s face it, smoking joints which have only a high amount of THC is a bit outdated. Cannabis products are always upgrading and thanks to the new technology, you can now have a CBD joint that will hit you decently hard and maximize the positive effects of cannabis. How cool is that?
Are There Other CBD Options That Are More Effective?
CBD isn’t a new thing (relatively), and you can find tons of different products on the market. CBD flower is just one of those, but you can also get CBD oils, CBD pens, CBD cookies, CBD concentrates, and so on. If the height is too weak for you, you can first try another flower that has a higher dose of CBD in it. Or just take more of the same flower. If that doesn’t work, you can try something else. CBD oils that are used with a vape will surely hit you hard, and edibles such as CBD cookies are something which isn’t for everyone. Even though it’s a CBD product, it’s still an edible which means that you’ll nevertheless have a hard hit after some delay.
All in all, there is something for everyone. CBD products are very versatile, and you can be sure that you’ll find something which suits your needs.
Try It Out
Even if you weren’t familiar with CBD products up to this point or you knew about them but rejected the option of trying them out – you should try them. You have nothing to lose, and if you ask us, something like CBD flower is a perfect starting point in the world of CBD. We can bet that once you go CBD, you won’t be going back to the regular stuff.
