CBD Cannabis Flowers

What are CBD flowers and how do they work?
Marijuana or Cannabis Sativa belongs to the plants of the genus hemp (cannabis), from the hemp family (Cannabaceae).

The main ingredients of the cannabis plant, which especially in the flowers of the female plant, are the famous tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

The THC is responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis and causes the famous “high” whereas the ingredient CBD is not psychoactive. But there are hundreds of other cannabinoids and various ingredients such as terpenes, terpenoids or flavonoids in this ingenious plant cannabis.

The cannabinoids (especially THC and CBD) are the main components of the cannabis plant and the terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids are the components that make up the smell, color, aroma and specific effect of a cannabis plant. Thus, one strain is more creative, active (Sativa) and another strain is more relaxed and balanced (Indica).

The concentration or proportions of the different ingredients vary from strain to variety and from plant to plant and make up the specific different effects of the cannabis strain. In addition, these ingredients also work slightly differently for everyone and also depending on the type of consumption.

It is important here that the full effect of the cannabis plant arises above all in the combined effect of the many different ingredients (so-called entourage effect), in contrast to the consumption of only one of the ingredients. This is often referred to as “full spectrum”).

Our CBD flowers all come from Switzerland and are grown under the most careful and strictly controlled conditions and all contain a THC value of less than 1% and comparatively very high CBD values.

Origin – Best CBD quality through the most careful production
In the cultivation and especially in the harvesting and drying of our CBD flowers, we attach great importance to the highest quality. Our flowers are only finely trimmed after a slow drying and usually by hand and then for several weeks, up to 2 months, slowly cured (fermented) to produce a perfect, sticky, fragrant and tasting end product of the highest quality.

Through fermentation, moisture is slowly removed from the already pre-dried cannabis flowers and the chlorophyll is broken down by bacteria and microorganisms naturally contained in the plant. The cannabinoid acids THC A, CBD A are converted into the main active ingredients THC and CBD.

Slow drying and fermentation is the process that significantly increases the quality of the cannabis, giving it a unique, long-term taste and fragrance. Only through good drying and subsequent storage can a product of the highest quality be created, which is many times stronger and yet much milder when smoking – without scratching in the throat.

How are CBD weed flowers consumed and dosed?
CBD flowers can be consumed in a variety of ways. CBD flowers should not be smoked, as toxic carbon monoxide is produced during the combustion process and thus harmful toxins are produced. In addition, when burned, most of the good ingredients “go up in smoke”. We therefore recommend vaporizing CBD flowers, as it is healthier, you need much less flowers or hash and above all it tastes much better. For this purpose, there are modern devices such as so-called vaporizers such as the Dynavap or the electric vaporizers from Storz & Bickel used in the medical sector. Gladly since you invited to try all products and test all devices in our Cannabis Sommelier Shop in Zurich. You can also process the flowers and extract the ingredients with e.g. oils or butter. There are various recipes and instructions on the Internet.

The dosage is at the discretion of the consumer, as the exact cannabinoid content of a CBD flower is very difficult to determine and can also fluctuate among the different varieties. Likewise, the type of consumption is decisive. CBD extracts such as oil or wax usually have a higher proportion of active ingredients in them than CBD flowers. With prolonged storage, the amount of ingredients in the flowers may decrease, as can the intensity of smell and taste.
