Educating all about CBD hemp strains is important because the strains are multiplying fast. The type of strain is what determines the effects and the benefits. Even the name of the strain may say a lot about the effects and what you can expect from the smoke, the vape
All About CBD Hemp Strains – What the Strain is Born With
The parents of the new strain tell a lot about their off-spring. All strains are either Indica, Sativa or Hybrid. The Hybrid can be Indica dominant or Sativa dominant or it can be 50/50 Indica/Sativa. When hemp first “came out”, many thought that Indica types were marijuana only. But that is not true. Hemp also has Indica types which calms and quiets and gives a restful night sleep. When a marijuana strain is Indica, it gives a couch-lock with heavy sedation because that is what happens with high THC content with other Indica qualities.
All About CBD Hemp Strains – What the Strain Displays
The color of the CBD hemp strain does not make the savors, but it does add to the entire experience. The color is determined by the parents of the new breed partly.
First quality CBD flowers should be from light to dark green. Bright, robust coloration generally signals a high-quality product. It is also true that top quality hemp flowers tend to be some combination of green and purple.
All About CBD Hemp Strains — Golden Pistils
Another color factor is the beautiful golden pistils in the hemp flower which is also a mark of a high-quality flower. The CBD hemp flowers are often covered with numerous colored pistils. Tiny hairs in the colors of orange, brown or rarer red, pink and purple represent the maturity of the flower. Their presence is a clear signal of a high-quality product and it is proof that it is in the controlled cultivation with an expert farmer.
The abundance of the tiny hairs does not affect potency but does mark a high quality.
All About CBD Hemp Strains – What the Savors the Strains Have
The savors determine the effects of your experience when you smoke the hemp flower nug or dry vape it. But you must look deeper to find the why of the savors. The why is the terpene profile that you find in any one particular hemp strain. Usually there are multiple terpenes and they not only provide the effects, but they also have medicinal benefits.
Terpenes are one of the many compounds in the hemp flower. The terpenes provide the therapeutic properties and strong savors come from. The hemp grower may know close to what terpenes will develop in the plant according to the strains he or she has crossed to create the hybrid strain. Hemp oil manufacturers often add in a natural flavor like peppermint so that the flavor is more consistent than the terpenes provide.
Caryophyllene Terpene Savors — Smells woody or like cloves with a taste that is spicier than usual. The taste also coats your throat with a peppermint feel.
Myrcene Terpene Savors — Is responsible for the “dank” smell of hemp. It has the flavor of mango as well as that all familiar dankness.
Limonene Terpene Savors — Possesses a sharp, fruity aroma. Interesting enough, it does not taste like citrus juice but is still relatively sweet.
Pinene Terpene Savors — Distinctively piney and found in pine trees. Fortunately, it does not taste like pine sap, but has flavor of earthy and minty.
Humulene Terpene Savors — Provides a significant woody aroma. Tastes of the earth with a powerful hops undertone.
Linalool Terpene Savors — Present in lavender with floral aroma. It is a light, crisp taste resembling lavender and ice cream.
Terpinolene Terpene Savors — Smells like many different things all at once. It is a fruity flavor as week as floral and herbal.
