What is Cannabis Flower?

Cannabis flower, also referred to as bud, nuggets, or nugs, is the smokable section of the cannabis plant’s blooms. Before consuming, the flower has gone through an extensive process including cultivation, harvest, drying, and curing. Cannabis flower is extremely popular because it can be smoked through multiple methods, such as pre-rolls, blunts, pipes, vaporizers, or bongs.

How do you consume flower?

Smoking cannabis flower is one of the most popular methods of cannabis consumption because there are multiple smoking methods to choose from and the effects are almost instant. To consume the flower, break down the buds or nuggets of cannabis into small crumbles with your fingers or a grinder. You can then place the flower in a bong, pipe, joint, or other methods and begin smoking. Depending on the desired method and dosage, you’ll typically feel the effects of smoking within 15 to 30 minutes and see the effects diminish over one to three hours.

What are the different types of cannabis flower?

The cannabis plant comes in many different variations of three species of cannabis, sativa, indica, and hybrid. Sativa cannabis has higher levels of THC and low levels of CBD,  producing an energizing head high. Typically, Sativa strains are used for individuals who are seeking a spark in energy or creativity. Indica strains tend to offer a full-body relaxing sensation due to the higher percentage of CBD. Indica-dominant cannabis is generally used for helping to manage pain and inflammation, inhibit sleep, and relax the body. Hybrid cannabis strains are created by the two different strains of parent marijuana and are a cross between indica and sativa. These strains allow one to experience a happy middle. Depending on the hybrid strain, you can soothe body aches and find the right balance for any activities.

What is a pre-roll?

A pre-roll is ground up bud or nuggets of cannabis flower that has been ground down and twisted in a rolling paper, and prepared by a designated cannabis vendor. Cannabis cultivations or dispensaries will grind, roll, and seal the cannabis flower in rolling papers, making it easier for the consumer to enjoy. A pre-roll, also known as a joint, can vary in weight, potency, size, and cannabis strains. Pre-rolls are great for first-time cannabis shoppers because they are small, portable, and take out the hassle of working with flower.

Who should buy flower?
