What is CBD pollen?
CBD is increasingly popular with users across the world. Not only does cannabidiol (or CBD) help many regular users sleep better and reduce their stress levels, it’s also perfectly legal in most European countries as long as the THC level remains below a certain threshold.
CBD is available in many different formats. Depending on your use case, you can opt for CBD oil, teas, creams, legal cannabis buds, and even resin, also known as CBD pollen. CBD pollen is a delicate product that is also practical and easily portable, but it’s still underappreciated by the wider public. Let’s take a look at CBD pollen, how it’s made, and its main advantages.
What are the benefits of CBD?
Before we get into the manufacture of CBD pollen, let’s quickly review CBD, THC and the differences between them. Both are molecules of the Cannabis Sativa, or hemp plant. Cannabis Sativa has been cultivated for thousands of years for many different purposes. Humans have used the various hemp varieties to create rope, clothing and oil alongside a variety of other applications. Cannabis Sativa extract with a high concentration in THC has psychoactive effects (i.e, it will make you high) and as a result is a banned or controlled substance in many European countries. Cannabidiol on the other hand has physically relaxing effects, but will leave your head perfectly clear.
CBD has a number of reported benefits. According to users, it improves sleep, promotes relaxation and generally contributes to a more positive mindset. Some medical studies indicate that it may have a positive impact on the symptoms of certains diseases, but more research is necessary.
What is CBD pollen?
Pollen is an airborne substance produced by plants that enables them to reproduce. It is an important part of some traditional or alternative medicine regimes, due to its supposedly immune-boosting properties.
CBD pollen is relatively unknown compared to other CBD formats such as oil and flower. It’s collected from the flowers of the hemp plant and carefully filtered to ensure that no pieces of bud remain in the end product. Once harvested, the pollen is heated and compressed to create a small “pebble”. CBD pollen should be kept in an airtight container at a stable temperature, out of direct sunlight.
How should you consume CBD pollen?
Whatever you do, don’t smoke CBD pollen. It’s made to be consumed orally, either in a relaxing infusion or sprinkled over a salad for an earthy, natural flavour with subtle lemony notes.
