Is CBD flower Legal?
Yes! CBD flower is derived from the hemp plant, which is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. "The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 was a proposed law to remove hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC) from Schedule I controlled substances and making it an ordinary agricultural commodity. Its provisions were incorporated in the 2018 United States farm bill that became law on December 20, 2018." Found on wikipedia. Alive Market has a hemp license for our small batch farm in Southern California
This question is so common!
I overheard a women at lunch ask her friend, "do you wanna walk down to the river and smoke a CBD preroll?" Her friend almost fell off of her chair! "Do I want to get high? We might get in trouble, what if we get caught?" She asked. "NO! I said CBD!" She explained.
This is a common question we get all the time. I understand why it is asked often, It looks and smells just like cannabis you would find at the dispensary. However, just like the CBD tinctures, body butters etc, CBD prerolls and flower are LEGAL!!!
To make a CBD product, like a tincture or body butter, the raw hemp flower is extracted into a high CBD concentrate. That concentrate (for example, distillate) is then mixed in with other ingredients to create the body butters or tinctures. This process is necessary for these type of products, however you can actually smoke or cook with the raw hemp flowers.
CBD flower is in its raw form! No extraction process, just trimmed up and ready to be consumed. CBD prerolls and flower are still under 0.3% THC and very high in other cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBDV to name a few. CBD flower is also very high in terpenes, which also have incredible benefits!
Smoking CBD flower is growing in popularity recently because the amazing effect that CBD has on our body, works very fast when smoked. Instead of waiting 20 minutes to an hour, to feel the effects of the cananbinoids, you will feel it immediately when smoking CBD flower.
The best time to smoke CBD flower or prerolls is with your morning coffee, before or after a work out, after a large meal and even before bed!
