Some people prefer the delicate lily, some the passionate rose, and others adore the magnificent glow of sunflowers. Personally, when it comes to flowers, we prefer Secret Sauce, Sweet Wife, and Suver Haze. We are, of course, talking about hemp and CBD flowers. But since Suver Haze isn’t quite as familiar to a lot of people as carnations, and because people often choose their CBD flowers from online catalogs instead of florist shops, choosing these plants can be tricky. Fortunately, our top tips for choosing CBD flowers will have you picking them like daisies in no time.
Check the Lab Test
This is true of choosing any CBD product—or any product in general. Don’t put something in your body when you don’t know what’s in it. A certificate of analysis will tell you exactly what’s in a CBD product. It will tell you not only whether the flower has the THC levels you would prefer, but also the levels of pesticides and metals present in it. You should also be sure the product was third-party tested for the sake of integrity. And if there isn’t a certificate of analysis, pick a different product.
Another piece of information you’ll find on a certificate of analysis is the level of terpenes in the product. Terpenes give different CBD strains their aromas and flavors. For example, the terpene pinene has a strong pine scent. If you don’t enjoy a good old-fashioned hike through a pine forest, then a strain with a heavy pinene presence probably isn’t for you.
But scent isn’t the only thing terpenes bring to the table, and they aren’t the only things you should think about for choosing CBD flowers. Terpenes, like cannabinoids, potentially offer their own benefits. For example, pinene may have anti-inflammatory effects, and it could boost short-term memory and open up airways. If those are things you’re dealing with, then you may consider trying out something with more pinene.
Let’s be honest—if you’re buying CBD flowers, this is what you’re here for, and you don’t want to get scammed. CBD labeling can be deceptive, so it’s important to look at the certificate of analysis yourself to make sure the flower really supplies the CBD the certificate says it does. You also want to consider the CBD content if you’re new to the world of CBD. When you’re new at anything, it’s good to start slow, and as a beginner, you may want to consider something with a lower CBD content at first.
Everyone has their favorite kinds of flowers, and that’s true of CBD flowers, too. Determining which flowers you like just takes a little more effort. And when you’re ready to make your choice, we have plenty of hemp flowers for sale in our garden.
