Patients in Missouri are dying to open dispensaries, and while the illegal market is still alive and well, the more we learn about the CBD (hemp) flower, the more people are willing to turn it around. Given that the marijuana program in Missouri is currently MEDICAL, more than 55,000 patients have received their patient cards. Many of these patients turn to cannabis for a variety of reasons, but many cite chronic pain or anxiety as their biggest motivators.
While we wait for dispensaries to start delivering THC products, the high-quality CBD flower is now available, does not require permission from the state to purchase, and can often help with conditions – only without the high. This may sound crazy for those who insist that high is the best part of consumption, but not everyone likes to bake, and not everyone enjoys drinking.
The CBD flower looks, smells, digests and smokes just like our favorite weed. They even have great names for their strains! But – did you know that the inhaled flower of CBD is quickly absorbed into your bloodstream and CBD is transmitted directly to your brain in 3 minutes or less? This is an exciting prospect for someone in excruciating pain or someone on the verge of an unpredictable panic attack.
The effect of smoked CBD flower usually lasts only 30-60 minutes. Therefore, you will need to smoke CBD flower often if you need it often throughout the day – fortunately, CBD flower is much cheaper than THC pimple and requires fewer strokes (subsequently more medicine for your money) to get immediate benefits. Another benefit? Missouri has some of the most talented hemp growers in the nation – which means you can buy locally.
Have you tried CBD flower? Would you try it for pain if you knew it wouldn’t make you bloat?
