A top shelf hemp bud is a high-quality cannabis hemp product. It is also most expensively priced hemp flower, but top shelf means much more.  The cannabinoids and the terpenes as well as a wide range of other natural compounds in the CBD hemp flower are what provide the plethora of health benefits in CBD hemp.


Identifying Top Shelf Hemp Flowers – Three Characteristics

The first question we will answer here is what is top shelf? A top shelf hemp bud is a high-quality cannabis hemp product.  The typical top shelf hemp bud does these three things:


  • Displays an exquisitely pleasing flower structure,
  • Demonstrates abundant terpene profiles,
  • Possess a high cannabinoid profile and content.


When you purchase your selected hemp bud, you may do it first by how it looks just because when it is visually pleasing it affects your desire to have it. So, it is important for the top shelf hemp bud to be visually appealing even though it does not affect the taste. Look at the color looks because the brighter the colors, the more hair and trichomes (frosty crystals), the better. The trichomes are who hold the cannabinoids and terpenes as well. The more frosty it looks, the more potent it will be.Identifying top shelf hemp flowers also involves but very much of importance there is on the abundance of cannabinoids. This is where the high CBD content is calculated as well as all the other cannabinoids which are also important contributing factors to the health benefits.


Identifying Top Shelf Hemp Flowers – Cannabinoids and Terpene Profiles

The cannabinoids and the terpenes as well as a wide range of other natural compounds in the CBD hemp flower are what provide the plethora of health benefits in CBD hemp. Even when there is the 0.3% THC which is the legal limit, all these compounds work together to enhance its effectiveness.  Some think that CBD hemp isolate is best because it is pure CBD but unless you are allergic to other compounds, CBD isolate is not more effective. And besides, it is impossible to smoke or dry vape a CBD isolate hemp flower. The isolate applies to CBD oil capsules, gummies and other manufactured products but not the hemp flower nug.


The CBD hemp flower strains are multiplying quickly much to the delight of hemp enthusiasts globally. And breeders are finding out what the consumers are interested in both health-wise as well as for the effects they most enjoy. The breeders do not know everything because there is the personal preferences that come into play when deciding which hemp flower to purchase.


Both the cannabinoid profiles as well as the terpene profiles are what make a flower potent in effects and health benefits. It is common knowledge that cannabinoids are responsible in large part for the health benefits but now we know through extensive research that terpenes have their own impact health wise. It’s important to find out what the percentage of CBD is but these cannabinoids are also important — CBGA, CBC, CBN, and CBDV.  A hemp flower strain with 14-15% or more CBD, indicates strong effects.  Identifying top shelf hemp flowers means getting involved in researching the terpene profile of the hemp flower as they are mainly the reasons for the savors to the flower when you smoke or dry vape or liquid vape it.
