How to Consume CBD Flower? The Only Guide You Need

CBD flowers, what are they?

What are CBD flowers?

The base. CBD flowers are the large buds - or buds - that grow on female Sativa L cannabis plants and more precisely female hemp plants.

They are harvested when they reach maturity and offer the same flavors as cannabis, as they are rich in terpenes and flavonoids - the compounds responsible for the unique smell and flavors of each cannabis genetic.

After curing and drying, the flowers are offered for sale as in the TealerLab CBD Shop for the beneficial effects they provide, due to their high CBD content.

CBD flowers therefore have the appearance, taste and smell of cannabis flowers.

However, they differ from these on one significant point: the THC content.

And therein lies the hack – CBD flowers are grown from hemp plants, which by definition contain a tiny concentration of THC – less than 0.3%.

Too low a THC level to cause a psychotropic effect - that's why your CBD flower doesn't get you high.

How to consume CBD flower

I see you coming...Yes yes, even without getting high, CBD flowers have a lot to bring you.

There are different methods to benefit from the benefits of CBD through the consumption of these flowers. Each having their advantages and disadvantages depending on your personal desires and needs.

We wrote this guide for you so that you can get the most out of your CBD flowers. Overview of the best ways to consume CBD flowers, here we go!

How to Use CBD Flower?

First thing first: Why is the method of ingestion important?

How you choose to use the CBD flower is of paramount importance as it will influence

  • The effect of CBD on your body
  • Its rate of absorption by your body (the level of CBD that enters your bloodstream)
  • Its speed of assimilation (the time it takes to act)
  • The duration of the effects (The same dose of CBD will have a different effect and action time depending on the method of ingestion.)

Simply put, your body absorbs cannabinoids in different ways depending on the method of ingestion.

How to Choose your Consumption Method?

🥦 The first thing to determine is the expected effect of CBD consumption

If you just want to relax every once in a while, a quicker, shorter method - like inhalation - may be more suitable.

If you want a more lasting impact, for example during your sleep or for anxiety, other methods - such as ingestion - will be more suitable than others.

🥦Another factor to consider is bioavailability.

Bioavailability is the fact that depending on the method of ingestion, different levels of CBD will end up in your blood to produce an effect, even if the starting amount is the same.

For example, some methods like inhalation allow most of the CBD dose to enter the bloodstream, while with others, almost no cannabinoids enter the bloodstream. I'll give you the details later in this article.

How to Use CBD Flower? Guide to Consumption Methods

Your body has CBD receptors, called endocannabinoid receptors.  , which are found in your brain, liver and under the skin.

Methods of using CBD flowers must therefore meet the need for CBD to reach these receptors through our bloodstream to create their effects.

This is why the different methods to benefit from the benefits of CBD flowers are:


which are so many ways of absorption by your body so that the CBD reaches its target - the endocannabinoid receptors.

Methods of consuming CBD flowers

I'll explain what you need to know about each method.

💨 CBD Flower Inhalation

Inhalation is simply the action of absorbing something through the respiratory tract.

Inhaling CBD flower is the most effective method of consuming CBD because when CBD flower is vaporized or smoked, the CBD along with other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the lungs.

The effects are therefore felt much more quickly than with other methods - after about a minute. And in 10 minutes or less, you absorb 34-56% of the CBD inhale.

By bypassing the digestive system and reaching the bloodstream through the alveoli of the lungs, inhalation absorbs more CBD at once and much faster too compared to other methods.

Which makes this an important benefit of inhaling CBD.

There are two ways to inhale CBD flowers:


➡ Smoking CBD Flowers

This is the most common consumption method for CBD flowers - especially among the Tealerlab gang.

It consists of mixing the crushed or chopped CBD flowers with a little tobacco or pure, and rolling them into a joint, pre-rolled joint or smoking them using a water pipe.

This method is the least recommended because even if CBD presents no danger, it is a little different when the cannabidiol molecule is smoked. Smoking CBD flowers with or without tobacco produces combustion, which can reduce the effects of CBD, and the thick smoke that is inhaled carries tars and other harmful substances which are deposited in the respiratory system.

While vaporization can get around this by heating the active ingredients just below the point of combustion, it's still best not to choose inhalation if you're not already a smoker or vaper.

Smoking CBD flowers

Vaporize the CBD Flower

For those who are tired of hiding to enjoy their plants, vaporization is an increasingly used and appreciated method because it allows you to consume CBD flowers anywhere, discreetly without odor and smoke.

Vaporizing flowers simply involves heating your flowers, without burning them, to release the CBD that you inhale through a vaporizer (not to be confused with vaping e liquids or CBD concentrates )

When CBD flowers are vaporized, the result is a vapor (and not a smoke) that is much less aggressive and harmful to health than the fumes produced by combustion.

In addition, without being stingy, it is much more economical to consume CBD flower by vaporizing it than by smoking it because it burns less quickly and more of the active ingredients are preserved.

In short, vaporizing CBD flowers allows you to enjoy the benefits of inhalation without the drawbacks of combustion.

You will be able to enjoy the benefits of CBD thanks to the better bioavailability without inhaling harmful substances. Any benefit.

Vaporize the CBD flower

Choose the right temperature for vaporizing CBD flowers

To get the most out of vaporizing CBD flowers, you need to choose the right vaporization temperature.

I'll quickly explain to you:

Too low a vaporization temperature and the CBD evaporates poorly. But if you heat too much, the hemp will burn and therefore release toxic substances.

To perform at its best, CBD must be vaporized between 160 and 220°C. The choice of vaporization temperature depends on the variety of cannabis and the desired effect.

If you want a calming CBD vaporization, you can heat the product between 160 and 180°C.

At higher temperatures, above 190°C and up to 220°C, the vaporization of CBD will then be more effective in relieving severe pain, sleep problems or depressive states.

Finally, if you use weed to vaporize CBD, the temperature must be adjusted according to the humidity level of the plant.

Very dry herb vaporizes very quickly and may require lowering the temperature. On the contrary, if the plant is too humid, it may be difficult to extract the cannabinoids. Some vaporizers then allow the cannabis to be heated between 130 and 150°C to perform a flavonoid cycle before vaporizing the CBD.

To summarize, to properly vaporize CBD flowers, you must heat them to a temperature between 160 and 220°C, but this can vary depending on the herb used (more or less dry, more or less strong in CBD), d 'where the importance of choosing a functional vaporizer.

🧁 Ingestion of CBD Flowers

Another method of consuming CBD flowers is to ingest them.

This route of administration simply refers to eating, drinking or swallowing your CBD flowers.

Ingested CBD flower offers some nutritional benefits over inhalation. Hemp contains proteins, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that will be preserved if you don't smoke them.

ingestion of CBD flowers


Can you eat CBD flowers? Yes, but only in certain circumstances.

We definitely don't recommend eating your CBD flower raw.

Not only do raw CBD flowers taste bad, but the cannabinoids only activate when exposed to heat – called decarboxylation.

So eating raw CBD flowers will not produce any effect. Cannabinoids must be activated by heat so that they can be assimilated by our body.

How to activate CBD to ingest it?

You need to heat your CBD flowers to a certain temperature for the decarboxylation process to take place.

Each cannabinoid reacts at a different temperature, for example, for CBD, the molecule must be heated between 140°C and 180°C for decarboxylation to occur.

The easiest way to decarboxylate your CBD flowers is with an oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 140°C
  • Grind or crumble your flowers by spreading them on a baking tray
  • Heat your flowers for about 30 minutes
  • After the 30 minutes, the hemp flowers should be brown and golden with a crumbly texture.

➡ Ingestion of CBD Flowers: What You Need to Know

Whatever the form, CBD consumed orally always ends up in the same place: the stomach.

Instead of entering the bloodstream directly, ingested cannabinoids are subject to a first-pass effect.

This long journey distinguishes CBD edibles from other modes of consumption.

Let me explain: THE

Indeed, when you ingest CBD orally, it faces the “FIRST PASS EFFECT”, which means that once the CBD reaches your liver, it will be broken down by enzymes to significantly reduce its deliverability.

The explanation is that CBD products that are consumed orally are ingested directly into the digestive system. The liver will have to ensure that it metabolizes the CBD and returns its active components to the blood system, thus allowing the activation of endocannabinoid receptors and therefore the effects of CBD.

On the other hand, the liver will block part of the ingested CBD and only release a smaller percentage into the body.

Clearly, when you ingest a 10 mg capsule of CBD, less than 10 mg will actually be absorbed. We talk about bioavailability .

Therefore the absorption of CBD orally takes much longer than with the inhalation method, since the cannabinoids must reach the digestive system to be assimilated.

Ingestion of CBD

That said, what is a disadvantage for some may be an advantage for others.

Due to this first pass effect, the effects of CBD are slower and are felt only 30 to 60 minutes after taking but the effects, in general, last longer than other methods. (up to 6 hours).

That being said, the two ways to integrate your CBD flowers are:


    ➡ CBD Flowers in Infusion

    The most recommended method for consuming CBD flowers remains infusion.

    Indeed, CBD infusions are easy to make and allow the plant's molecules to be kept intact to take full advantage of their anti-inflammatory, anti-stress and antioxidant properties.

    However, it is important to understand that CBD is fat-soluble, which means that it does not dissolve in water .

    To transfer the CBD to your infusion water, you will need to add a fat . The fat-soluble CBD will then be dissolved in the fat and will be ready to be assimilated by your body.


    1. Boil water.
    2. Add the fat (coconut oil, butter, etc.)
    3. Insert the CBD flowers: must be placed in a tea strainer or tea ball, before soaking them in hot water.
    4. Allow the flower to infuse for between 5 and 10 minutes.
    5. Enjoy your infusion!

    CBD infusion

    It is recommended to consume CBD flowers as an infusion one hour before bedtime to promote sleep and sleep better, while the soothing effects of cannabidiol are felt.

    Although the molecule takes longer with this method of ingestion, the effects will be more lasting and last up to 7 hours.

    CBD infusions and teas can also be consumed at any time of the day. CBD helps you gain motivation, but also concentration.

    >>> You also have the choice of purchasing CBD infusions already prepared. Our infusions are effective and combine the relaxing virtues of CBD with plants with recognized benefits.

    ➡ CBD Flowers in the Kitchen 

    Another way to consume CBD flowers is to cook them. This way, instead of drinking them, you can eat them.

    With this technique, the CBD will also be digested by your liver and will therefore have slower, but more lasting effects.

    Just like for an infusion, you must combine CBD flowers with a fatty substance.


    The simplest way is to make pastries by first creating butter enriched with CBD.

    1. Grind or crumble the CBD flowers to obtain a powder
    2. To melt the butter
    3. Mix the two
    4. Leave your preparation to infuse over low heat; the longer you let it simmer, the more intense the effects of the CBD will be.
    5. Filter everything to recover only the infused butter. You can now place it in the refrigerator so that it regains a solid shape and subsequently make cakes, cookies or pies.

    Cooking CBD flower

    CBD pastries or candies are delicious ways to consume CBD and feel the powerful long-term effects.

    Effects begin 1 hour after ingestion, due to the digestion stage and can last up to 7 hours

    Having become legendary, space cakes can be infinitely varied: chocolate cake, cookies, anything is allowed to enjoy a moment of relaxation.

    Finally, we think about it less but CBD flower can be used as an aromatic herb and incorporated fresh or dried into dishes.

    Be creative and don’t hesitate to add some to your plate at lunch or dinner time!

    🥦 Finally, How to Store Your CBD Flowers?

    To enjoy your CBD flowers as long as possible, it is important to store them well.

    CBD flowers can be stored and consumed without problem for up to 6 months to 1 year after opening the sachet.

    Several factors have a direct and significant impact on the degradation of CBD. If you want to keep your flowers as long as possible, here are the things to avoid :

    • Light: Light can damage flowers to the point where they no longer produce their benefits.
    • Air: Air deteriorates the aromas found in the terpenes of the CBD flower. It can also speed up the decomposition process of the dried plant.
    • Temperature: Too high a temperature can alter the cannabinoids contained in your CBD flower. In general, it is recommended to store them in a place where the temperature does not exceed 21°C.
    • Humidity: It is very important to protect your flowers from humidity. The latter can lead to the appearance of mold and completely destroy the product.

    To summarize, it is therefore advisable to keep your CBD flowers in airtight packaging, stored in a dry place, protected from light and at room temperature.

    🥦 Summary: Using CBD Flowers

    • CBD flowers can be inhaled or ingested
    • Inhaling absorbs more CBD at once and much faster too compared to other methods.
    • Vaporization allows you to enjoy the advantages of inhalation without the disadvantages of combustion.
    • When ingested, the effects of CBD are slower and last longer than other modes. (up to 6 hours).
    • In infusion, the fat helps you better assimilate the CBD.
    • In cooking, decarboxylation is a necessary prerequisite.
    • Avoid excessively high temperatures (170°C is a good average and do not exceed 220°C).
    • Between uses, store your flowers away from humidity, light, heat and children.
