Is CBD Flower Legal In All 50 States?
Thanks to the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 CBD products that contain less then .3 percent of THC are now 50 states legal. This act separated Hemp from Cannabis and put it under the control of the FDA. There is some grey areas on cbd edibles and other types of products that are cbd and can be ingested like cbd oil and such but the FDA is aware of this and is in the process of revising its regulation as of 2019. CBD Flower as long as it conforms to the less than .3% standard is completely legal.
The Effects & Benefits Of CBD Flower
The benefits of smoking cbd flower is much like the benefits of smoking medical grade cannabis minus the psychological effects. One benefit you get from smoking or vaping CBD flower is that there is what is called the entourage effect which just simply means that when all the cannabinoids are present they work together to give you greater benefit and since low levels of thc exist in the flower versus using a concentrate or an isolate you get the full entourage effect without the high!.
The effects and benefits of CBD Flower:
- The biggest benefit to cbd flower is when you smoke it you get immediate effects within minutes which makes it perfect for people with anxiety, ptsd or anyone that needs immediate relief.
- The entourage effect since all cannabinoids are present in cbd flower even tho the thc is at a lower level than in the cannabis plant.
- A mellowing relaxing effect while still being clear headed. Perfect for people in high stress environments that need to mellow out and still be alert and completely clear minded.
- Helps with chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, seizures, ADHD (studies are currently being done), arthritis, bipolar disorder ( studies are being done), depression, Fibromyalgia and it has shown some cancer fighting properties. These are just some of the things that CBD can help you with. Its also great for something as simple as a post workout supplement to help with muscle soreness.
Like with anything else that you smoke there are some down sides to smoking cbd flower since anything that is brought to the point of combustion creates carcinogens. It is still way better for you then smoking tobacco related products.
Will CBD Flower Cause You To Fail A Drug Test?
The answer to this question is a tricky one. Due to the sticky nature of THC and cannabinoids and the fact that a simple urine drug test can give a false positive just because cannabinoids are very much alike and even a 0 thc product like a cbd isolate can cause a false positive. So that is the bad news on that.
Now here is some ways to combat this if it happens to you. You will want to request a blood test or a hair follicle test which should not cause a false positive which should then clearly show that you are not taking anything illegal.
The other issue is that peoples metabolisms are different and thc does accumulate which can make a urine test give a false positive.
So if your taking a cbd product and you are in an environment that is very strict on drug testing you might want to request a blood or hair follicle test to prevent having to deal with a false positive in a urine test.

Why is it perfect for people that get paranoid on cannabis?
It’s just like cannabis without the psychoactive effects. Since it lacks large enough amounts of thc and only contains small amounts of that cannabinoid there are no psychoactive effects. The only thing you will notice is a mellowing effect but there will be no high. Think of it almost like a body high. You get all the effects on the body with non of the mental aspects that cause paranoia or anxiousness.
Can you get to high a dosage from CBD Flower?
It is possible to get too much cbd in your system and have adverse effects. Mainly things like nausea, diarrhea and anxiety are symptoms.
The best way to prevent this is to take it easy and slowly smoke with some pauses until you get the desired effects and no more. Everyone’s endocannabinoid systems is different and therefore the best method is too slowly take a small dose and then ramp up until you get the desired effect and then coast until it wears off and you need more.
A CBD overdose won’t kill you but it can be uncomfortable.
Hemp CBD Flower Vs High THC Cannabis Flower.
Hemp flower and cannabis flower are pretty much the same except for the THC levels in each plant. Hemp has much lower levels of thc present where cannabis has a higher dosage which is why a marijuana bud will get you high and a hemp one will not. You will get the same body benefits but the hemp flower will leave you clear minded and relaxed where the cannabis will have a psychoactive impact.
