Uses for Hemp Flowers
There are many ways to enjoy the benefits of our Mary Michelle full-spectrum hemp flowers. You can smoke or vape the flowers using the same methods that you might use for cannabis. You can also bake the Hemp Flowers to create a variety of tasty edibles. Soon, we will also be offering distilled versions of our hemp flowers including isolates, oils, and tinctures to create salves, pills, or other homeopathic treatments.
Smoking Hemp Flowers
Smoking is one of the fastest ways to feel the effects of the Cannabinoids (CBD), Terpenes (the aromatic particles), and the other phytochemicals, found in our full-spectrum hemp flowers. With as little as one puff you can feel it working as it enters your bloodstream. If you’re not a fan of smoking, you can use a vaporizer to inhale the vapor for the same effects.
While smoking is a quick way to enjoy the relaxing benefits of hemp flowers, a more long lasting experience can be had from adding the hemp flowers to edibles. There are two ways to whip up some edible treats. Toast the hemp flowers, then grind them into bits and add them to your recipes. The other way is to add our odorless and tasteless Hemp Flower or Full Spectrum Hemp Oil / Tincture, to your consumable creations.
Many newbies to cooking with cannabinoids make the mistake of thinking all you do is add ground up bits of hemp flower to the recipe and the job is done. The truth is the cannabinoids naturally present in the hemp plant exist in an acidic state that bodies have difficulty absorbing. Heating hemp buds (a process called decarboxylation) converts the acidic CBD into CBD that can be consumed.
The process is really easy. Before you make your CBD edibles, pre-heat your oven to 240° F. Put a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread out your hemp buds. When your oven is pre-heated, put your flowers in the middle rack and toast them for about an hour. The finished hemp buds should be slightly brown, but not burnt. Grind them up and you are ready to add them to oils, teas, cooking butter, baked goods and more. You can also use the dried herb in salads, meatloaf, vegetarian dishes and other goodies.
If you want to create recipes without any hemp flower taste, you can add our odorless CBD Oils or Tincture. It’s a great solution for baked goods, beverages and more.
The healthful and healing benefits of full spectrum CBD can be absorbed through the skin by using salves and ointments. By adding our pure hemp flower oil to make a salve, you can put the power of CBD directly on sore muscles and areas of pain.
There is no limit to the fantastic variety of edibles and beverages you can make with our CBD rich hemp flowers, oils and tincture. Here are just a few recipes you can try.
Mix high quality Chinese green tea with our full spectrum hemp flowers that have been baked and ground up. Add lots of honey, lemon and orange peels, to create a pleasant taste that leads to a very pleasant day.
Mix Chamomile, or any other nighttime tea you enjoy, with our full spectrum hemp flowers that have been baked and ground into small particles. Mix into the tea leaf and hemp flower blend some honey and orange peels to create a warm, soothing evening beverage. You might also add a shot of your favorite liquor to create an even greater feeling of relaxation.
Our isolate cannabinoids (CBD) can also be put into alcoholic drinks, such as straight spirits, mixed cocktails, beer, or wine. The combination of alcoholic drinks with isolate CBD, produces a powerful result by stimulating the endocannabinoid system. Because both the alcohol and the isolate cannabinoids are processed by the same endocannabinoid system in the human body, the combination provides a double dose of the positive effects. The commonly reported effects are full body relaxation, sleep and relief from pains and stress.
