In France, the sale of products under the name "CBD flower" refers to the different varieties of legal hemp flowers in stock in shops. This cannabis has the only particularity of having a very low THC concentration (almost zero) in order to meet the legislation in force. For the rest, it's weed!
Weed, beuh, heads, weed, Marie Jeanne, marijuana, Indian hemp, ganja, skunk, a bud and so on, are all the little names that designate "the Grail" of a cannabis plant: its female flower. It is indeed in this part that the levels of cannabinoids (CBD, THC, CBN and CBG among others), flavonoids and terpenes are the strongest. As a result, all the effects, flavors and aromas specific to a cannabis strain are concentrated in these coveted floral tops.
Hemp plants are mostly dioecious (male and female are necessary for fertilization). They are distinguished as much by their anatomy as by their composition:
Male plants produce a stock of small flowers in bells at the base of the leaves. If their presence is essential for fertilization, these flowers are of no commercial interest as such.
Female plants produce large resinous flowers that are highly valued by cannabis users. In order to guarantee sex and therefore the sale of flowers, female hemp plants are more and more often derived from feminized seeds. Their size and quantity vary depending on their situation on the plant, cannabis strains, cultivation options and maturity. It is in these flowers that the highest concentrations of cannabinoids and other interesting compounds (terpenes and flavonoids in particular) are found.
Because of this, a CBD flower for sale in a shop is a female CBD hemp flower. These varieties of flowers are harvested at maturity and manicured so that their benefits and organoleptic properties (flavors and aromas) are optimal.
Every day, a new flower of CBD France appears in the windows of the shops. If they all have their particularity, they are grouped in 2 main types by their appearances, their growths, their flowering but also, and above all, their effects:
Cannabis type sativa: fairly long growth and flowering (12 weeks on average), stimulating effect ("cerebral high").
Cannabis type indica: shorter growth and flowering (8 weeks on average), relaxing effect ("body stone")
The CBD Flower and its active ingredients
A male cannabis plant contains a whole bunch of active molecules, however, it is in the flowers of the female plant that their levels are particularly high:
Cannabinoids: molecules responsible for the effects of cannabis by acting on the receptors of the endocannabinoid system. 2 of these active ingredients are of particular interest: CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)
Terpenes: actors responsible for pollination. They give flowers their taste and smell.
Flavonoids: they give their color to flowers (interest in pollination)
The biosynthesis of these molecules is located in trichomes. These are resinous glands located on the aerial parts of a hemp plant. They are particularly found at the level of the heads. These trichomes give a frosty appearance to the flower.
If THC has long given cannabis its reputation as a drug because of its psychotropic effects, today, the benefits of consuming a CBD flower gradually contrast this stigma. Among the virtues attributed to CBD are:
its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, appetite regulation, muscle relaxation of the body...
The many benefits granted to CBD are still being studied in order to understand its mode of action but its sale is legal. If at the very beginning the purchase of CBD flower was used to mimic the organoleptic qualities of illegal cannabis, buying CBD for therapeutic purposes has become the majority.
Indeed, the deep muscle relaxation that CBD confers would lower the level of stress, anxiety, relieve some chronic pain resulting from diseases and improve falling asleep. The CBD flower then appears as a superb natural alternative to chemicals that are drug treatments (painkillers, anti-inflammatories, sleeping pills, .anxiolytics, ...). In addition, these varieties of flowers can be consumed according to different options to satisfy all its consumers:
vaporization, infusion,cooking recipe to name a few.
A CBD hemp flower available in France, as we have seen, comes from a variety of marijuana with a THC content of less than 0.2% in order to comply with the laws in force in European countries. As a result, no significant side effects are observed.
The cheap CBD Flower
As in all industries, the price of a CBD flower varies according to several criteria and in particular:
the margin of the shop
the type of crop
In cannabis cultivation, there are 3 crop options:
Outdoor: This crop allows optimal development of weed plants. On the other hand, it is scrupulously dependent on environmental factors and the photoperiod. The yield (price per gram) is therefore unstable and the flowers imperfect. However, outdoor grass has some well-marked characteristics.
Greenhouse: This cultivation is done in open ground but allows the control of environmental factors. The result is a rather stable flower harvest over time.
Indoor :In indoor cultivation, all parameters are controlled (environments, parasites, hygrometry, etc.). The CO2 level being very high, it allows the hemp plant to grow rapidly. Indoor flowers are therefore stable over time and of optimal quality. However, the lack of space confers a slightly lower yield (amount of flowers per foot) than with other growing options.
All these variabilities between one type of crop and another therefore perfectly explain the price differences found on the CBD flower market. As a result, a cheap CBD flower does not mean that the flower is of poor quality but can be explained by the type of culture from which it comes (stock of harvested flowers). It is understandable that indoor production requires more costs than outdoor, which will inevitably have an impact on the selling price. The greenhouse culture therefore appears as a good compromise to obtain a cheap CBD flower France: a great quality / price ratio! In the same way, an organic culture, natural flowers or sprayed with CBD crystals are criteria to be taken into account in the price of the CBD product.
Beware, however, of unscrupulous shops. As it has been said above, some shops do not hesitate to make a very large margin on their CBD product without this being really justified. At Bistrot CBD we have opted for quality at the best possible price in order to satisfy all our customers and all budgets.
Our philosophy: The benefits of CBD accessible to all!
Consuming a CBD flower
IT IS POSSIBLE TO CONSUME CBD hemp flowers in different ways:
Infusion or herbal tea: preparation identical to conventional infusions. On the other hand, since CBD is fat-soluble, adding a cloud of milk or one or two drops of oil (fat) may be relevant.
In the kitchen: in the form of CBDbutter (Marrakech butter)or simply by adding the flowers to the culinary preparation (space cake, sauce, salad, ...).
Vaporization: not to be confused with vaping (which uses electronic cigarette liquid)! The optimal extraction of CBD is done at 180 ° C and that of terpenes begins at 155 ° C, in order to make the most of the organoleptic qualities (aromas) and the properties of CBD flowers, opt for a heating temperature of around 170 ° C.
Combustion: to be smoked like a conventional marijuana cigarette (joint). Indeed,although it is largely discouraged to smoke a CBD flower, it is possible to divert them from their theoretical use. This method is very popular with "weed" smokers because it allows a real psychological withdrawal to the real joint. The consumer finds the same taste, the same smell and the relaxing effect of his usual "bedo" but with the side effects of THC less. Despite the combustion that remains harmful to health, the CBD joint is still a good alternative to start a gentle weaning.
Potpourri: The smell of CBD flower is pleasant but this method of absorbing CBD is obsolete. It would take a large handful of CBD flowers in a damp room to feel a subtle relaxing effect. If this type of consumption is put forward by some shops, we must be honest, it is essentially to be in the nails legally. Especially since the exposure of the inflorescences to open air and light accelerates the degradation of the active molecules.
Bath flowers: The effects of CBD will not be optimal but this absorption technique sublimates the relaxing effect that a warm bath naturally provides.
If certain types ofconsumption of CBD flowers sublimate the benefits of this molecule (vaporization, ingestion), others are nice partners in relaxation (bath, ..).
