CBD Flower: The Result Of Hybrid Breeding Of The Cannabis Sativa Plant

The CBD flower is the flower of the famous plant Cannabis Sativa. Though the flowers rich in CBD are available today, it was not always this way. The plant Cannabis Sativa contains both tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol. But during the early phases of the plant’s existence, CBD concentrations were deficient. Later on, for research and study purposes, breeders began producing hybrid plants with low THC content and high CBD concentrations. This resulted in the discovery of the hemp plant. It is known for its medicinal usage with no noticeable side-effect of THC. This made the plant grow extremely popular even in medical environments such as hospitals and research facilities.

Type Of Flowers

A CBD flower can be classified into different categories depending upon the content of CBD, THC, and other elements present in them. There are four popular categories of this type of flower: Low THC Flowers, Significant THC Flowers, Full-Spectrum Flowers, and Indica Flowers. The detailed content study of these various categories of CBD-rich flowers is not possible in a few words. However, a brief description of all the four types is mentioned below:`

  • Low THC Flowers- THC is an intoxicating substance present in a submissive form in a CBD-rich flower. However, some plants may possess THC in higher concentrations than others. Low THC flowers are tested on harvesting to ensure a minimum level of THC content in them. This makes Low THC flowers suitable for usage in countries where THC is banned.
  • THC Flowers- Despite the illegality of THC and its intoxicating nature, there are still numerous states that have legalized marijuana and, therefore, THC. THC flowers have a significant concentration of THC besides high CBD content. This enables users to benefit from the medical advantages of both compounds.
  • Full-Spectrum Flowers- A full spectrum flower is rich in CBD, but besides that, it also contains flavonoids and terpenes, which are commonly found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. This implies that a full spectrum flower contains all the compounds of its parent plant. These flowers are stronger and more efficient than the other categories.
  • Indica Flowers- The plant Cannabis Sativa is also popularly called Cannabis Indica. The term Indica and Sativa implies the high concentrations of CBD and THC, respectively. Though both types of plants are mutually exclusive, they also occur as hybrids in nature. Indica flowers are incredibly high in CBD and contain different varieties, such as CBG and CBN.
