Hemp has been around for centuries, and we are still learning about its many uses. Hemp buds can provide many health benefits to those suffering from specific ailments. How can something so tiny have so many benefits? We’ll break it down for you.
What are hemp buds?
Hemp buds are premium flowers harvested from hemp plants. While hemp started as being mainly grown for fiber and grain, it has many other benefits. The same applies to the hemp buds themselves.
Benefits of Hemp Buds
You won’t get high off of hemp buds, but they offer many of the same benefits as marijuana. Some hemp bud users believe that the buds offer better advantages when compared to traditional marijuana. Users believe hemp buds are believed to be suitable for the following:
- Users with anxiety and depression
- Pain Relief
- Anti-Inflammatory Issues
- Potentially aiding in cancer treatments
- Controlling seizures
How do we get the benefits of hemp buds?
Hemp buds are a great source of terpenes. Terpenes are compounds that give plants their smell and flavor. They also offer medicinal benefits and may enhance the effects of CBD.
Hemp buds also contain higher levels of CBG. CBG is another element found in cannabis. CBG has been shown to have the following:
- Anti-inflammatory Properties
- Antibacterial Properties
- Neuroprotective Properties
Hemp buds give you all the medicinal benefits without the psychoactive effects.
How should I use hemp buds?
People that regularly use hemp buds will most likely agree that the best way to get their benefits is to smoke them. Smoking cannabis has been scientifically proven to be more bioavailable. Bioavailable means that your body absorbs cannabis more naturally than if eaten or applied to the skin.
Potential Side Effects of Hemp Buds
As with most things, smoking hemp buds has some side effects. However, smoking cannabis is not considered nearly as dangerous as smoking cigarettes. Some smokers even use hemp buds to help them quit cigarettes. Though you may experience some side effects such as:
- Dry Mouth
It seems as if some people out there are trying to infuse hemp buds with THC. We wouldn’t recommend trying this as THC is much more potent, and we don’t have all the facts yet. The best thing to do is research whatever products you are interested in and buy from a reputable seller.
