A better quality of experience awaits those that choose to smoke their cannabinoids rather than vape. With all of the controversy surrounding vaping at the moment, we decided to share why we think smoking hemp is better than vaping.

  • Pure, unadulterated CBD-rich flower
  • Full spectrum “entourage effect”
  • Visible quality, not possible in vape cartridges
  • More aromatic and pleasurable 

Smoking Hemp Vs. Vaping

The demand for CBD hemp flower is increasing rapidly and many sales outlets are running out of smokable flower and hemp pre-rolls faster than they can stock them, as demand outweighs supply.

As the smokable hemp flower market grows, so too does the amount of care and attention given to it, as farmers realize the value of cultivating premium quality hemp flower, legal at Federal level, that has the potential to rival its marijuana relatives, when it comes to looks, taste, and smell. 

With so many different methods of consumption available, we thought we’d take the time to tell you why we think smoking is better than vaping, and why we think you might enjoy smoking our CBD joints more than you ever imagined possible.

Pure, Unadulterated CBD-rich Hemp Flower

When you buy CBD hemp flower (like some Lifter or Special Sauce), you get the flower and nothing but the flower. For us, holding the most phytocannabinoid-rich part of the plant in your hands is all part of the experience and we love being reminded of the fact that CBD does in fact come from Mother Nature.

Extracts can be made from the stems and leaves of the hemp plant as well as the flowers, and while there isn’t necessarily anything wrong with inhaling an extracted CBD oil, we prefer smoking it… pure, unadulterated CBD flower wrapped in the finest papers you can get your hands on.

Whether you’re smoking or vaping, you’re inhaling something into your lungs and we like being able to see what we’re inhaling first.

The Entourage Effect

When you pack a joint with pure hemp flower, you can also be confident that you’re getting a robust mix of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other phytochemicals, that were naturally cultivated within this beautiful plant.

There’s a lot of evidence to support the fact that all of these compounds work together in synergy, through what’s called ‘the entourage effect‘, in order to produce enhanced effect and consume experiences.

Smokable hemp flower, unlike oil extractions, preserves all natural plant compounds in varying amounts as prescribed by Mother Nature herself.

The Visible Quality of CBD Flower

Another reason why we believe that smoking is superior to vaping is because, whether you are looking at CBD flower online or you have it in your hand, you can check the quality of the product, right there and then, when you know what to look for.

Similar to the flowers belonging to its marijuana relatives, premium hemp flowers will sparkle with resin crystals that are chock-full of cannabinoids.

Not only should you look out for the crystal-like dust, but brownish hairs on the buds signify that the plant was harvested and cured just at the right time for optimum flower quality.

When it comes to other CBD products, apart from the packaging, they all look the same and unfortunately you’ll never get the chance to lay your eyes on the original plant material.

A Full Sensory Experience

Smokable hemp flower is not only a feast for the eyes, but an absolute delight for all the senses. It smells and tastes divine thanks to a group of aromatic chemicals produced by only the most intense smelling plants.

Lemon, peppermint, cinnamon, cloves, and hemp, are all examples of plants that contain terpenes, and these terpenes are much sought after, not only for their fragrances, but also for their contributions to the wellness industry, most commonly in the form of essential oils.

The terpene called limonene is also found in the rinds of citrus fruits and will lend an unmistakable citrus smell and citrus taste to hemp flower. Linalool, on the other hand, which is also found in lavender flowers, offers a more floral taste and aroma.

A variety of terpenes can be found in hemp flower, creating distinct flavorsome blends, which is why people often have favorites when it comes to one strain of hemp over another.

No matter which way you look at it, smell it, taste it, or touch it, smoking CBD hemp flower provides a far superior sensory experience to vaping, hands-down.

Smoke CBD as a Tobacco Alternative

You can also use your smokable hemp flower as an alternative to tobacco in marijuana spliffs to help reduce the potency of the marijuana you’re smoking, or just help to make your joint last longer.

Tobacco is addictive and deadly, so by using your hemp flower as a mixer for your marijuana, or as an alternative, you eliminate your need for tobacco, and increase your intake of cannabinoids at the same time.

A Superior Experience

Smokable hemp flower is also more versatile as you can smoke it, or bake with it, and you don’t ever have to worry about running out of battery… as if you needed more reasons why smoking CBD is better than vaping it! For us, above all, we love the superior quality of experience that smoking flower offers, and we think you’ll appreciate the difference too.

At Green Unicorn Farms we search long and hard for the cleanest, richest, most aromatic CBD hemp flower available in the country. We only share what’s worth sharing from the most experienced hemp growers and we love the fact that you can see the quality of our flower as soon as it arrives on your doorstep.

What’s more, if it’s been a few years since you’ve rolled your own then don’t fret as we also sell a range of hemp pre-rolls and CBD joints to get you started too.

Enjoy a higher quality experience and kiss your vape goodbye.
