Putting the Hemp Flower Together – In the Beginning was a Hemp Plant
Hemp is a plant with a stalk, leaves and a flower. Every part of the plant is used but the hemp flower, only on the female hemp plant, is the most valuable and the most used. Hemp flower is also referred to as the CBD flower or the CBD bud.
The hemp flower matures from bud to flower when it secretes cannabinoids and resins. This secretion attracts pollen from the males which in turn produces seeds. The exact percentages of CBD vary from flower to flower and is dependent on the particular strain of the hemp plant. Putting the hemp flower together does also take a look at the fact that th highest percentage of CBD comes from plants which have been bred to produce larger flowers and to better express high percentages of CBD.
Putting the Hemp Flower Together – Then There are the Natural Compounds
There are a great number of phytocannabinoids in the hemp flower, but we generally hear about CBD or CBG. Research is on-going continually and continually more cannabinoids are discovered and more benefits uncovered. Some cannabinoids mature sooner than others and like CBG, it splits into creating other cannabinoids.
Terpenes are the next most prominent natural compound and is primarily responsible for the aromas but recent research shows they have their impact with health benefits as well. So when you purchase your hemp flower nug, observe which terpenes are in it to know the aromas and the other health benefits you can expect.
Even though not talked about as much, putting the hemp flower together also requires looking at the enzymes and flavonoids. They may be lesser compounds but they are what make up the entire flower and beyond that – the Entourage Effect.
Putting the Hemp Flower Together — Talkin’ Crystals
Trichomes, the set of fine crystalline hairs, are not always visible to the naked eye except when it ripens, the trichomes are visible as a heavy frosty coat. Certain trichomes contain resin glands that create the terpenes and other phytocannabinoids. The abundance or lack thereof are also a determining factor of high-quality hemp flower. The ripe trichomes are potent and delicious. Heavy frosting of trichomes laden with terpenes is a much-desired characteristic of a top-shelf CBD hemp flower.
Putting the hemp flower together requires a look at these trichomes which are not only on the hemp flower but before harvest, they start appearing on the stalk and the leaves. These trichomes, though tiny, have a stalk which holds the head up. The head is all the cannabinoids form and is vital to the maturing of the hemp plant.
“All The Kings” Last
The hemp flower is a fascinating unit of health, recreational fun and all the aroma you can handle when you do the smoking or vaping. Even though cannabinoids are found in other places in the hemp plant, they highest concentration of them is in the hemp flower. That is the reason hemp extract is taken from the flower almost exculsively.
