Do CBD flowers smell like weed?

As more and more people turn to CBD flowers, also known as hemp flower, for immediate calming and pain relief, it is currently in extremely high demand. After all, this is the cannabidiol (CBD) in its purest form before being extracted and used in various CBD products like oils and edibles. CBD flowers, like their renowned relative marijuana, have a strong "skunky" scent, according to some who have tried smoking them. That is absolutely possible. After all, both plants are members of the same plant family. But do they actually have the same smell? Let's check.

 

What is CBD or Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many cannabinoids included in the cannabis plant, along with THC, the chemical we most often link with weed. People use CBD to reduce the symptoms of anxiety, pain, oedema, and other conditions. Alternative to conventional treatment, CBD is thought to improve both physical and mental health. It does not produce the same "high" feelings as marijuana. While marijuana has a significantly higher level of THC, CBD is derived from hemp plants, which only have a THC content of 0.3 per cent or less.

Because it is cannabis, CBD does indeed smell like weed. Contrary to popular opinion, neither hemp nor marijuana are real plants. None of the scientific fields, including botany and medicine, use these words. Cannabis flowers smells similar no matter which cannabinoid it contains. Cannabis is referred to as "hemp" when it has a THC content of less than 0.3 per cent because terpenes, not cannabinoids, are what give it its strong scent.

Cannabis smells slightly differently depending on the strain, and properly maintained buds are the only ones that retain their pleasant smell. Because of the terpenes it contains, CBD flowers have an extremely strong odour. Every cannabis strain's flower naturally contains terpenes and aromatic oils that can also be found in a wide variety of other plants. Every hemp strain includes dozens of different terpenes, each of which has its own unique aroma. These fragrant plant oils work together to give cannabis strains their unique flavours and smells.

 

Does CBD flower smell like marijuana?

Yes, by scent alone, CBD-rich hemp flowers can almost be mistaken for THC-rich marijuana. In fact, testing samples in a lab is the only way to distinguish between marijuana and hemp (apart from smoking it). These similarities can cause law enforcement officials to get confused, rewarding the discreet hemp smoker.

Does CBD flower taste good?

Yes, smoking or vaping CBD flower typically results in a nice taste. Your hemp flower will likely taste well if it smells good.
