There are many ways to consume a hemp flower, but smoking is still one of the most popular ways to benefit from this amazing plant. Smoking hemp provides instant relief. The active compounds (mainly CBD) in hemp flower are absorbed rapidly through the lungs, so smoking provides relief within minutes.
CBD flower (hemp) is easy to consume in a joint, bong, glass pipe, or dry herb vape. If smoking hemp flower isn’t your thing, then you can use hemp flower to make your own edibles or CBD oils.
Hemp flower can contain a variety of cannabinoids including things like CBD, CBG, THCa, CBDa, and many more. Many people believe that using hemp in its most natural form as a dried flower is the best way to enjoy it.
Are you wanting to find enjoyable ways to get the benefits from hemp flower? Do you want to learn about other ways of consuming CBD flower without smoking? Please read on to learn about some of the most enjoyable ways to consume hemp flowers.
Consume hemp flowers in a joint or preroll
The easiest way to experience the benefits of CBD hemp is to buy quality joints or prerolls. Rolling your own joints is an affordable way to smoke hemp products. However, many first-time hemp users find the rolling process too fussy and time-consuming. And, after all, consuming hemp is for relaxation and getting rid of stress.
CBD flower prerolls are easy to use and take with you wherever you go. The advantage of pre-roll is that you can buy packs in different strains. These are convenient, quick, and cheap.
We offer an affordable selection of beginner-friendly hemp pre-rolls to get you started.
Use hemp flowers in a pipe or bong
Smoking hemp flowers in a pipe, bong, or beaker is one of the most enjoyable ways to get the benefits from hemp. The reason pipes or bongs are popular is because they are easy to use and provide a smoother, calmer experience. In addition, bongs aren’t as harsh as smoking as they deliver superior taste and prevent hot smoke from irritating your throat.
Also, many regular users say that smoking hemp flower in a pipe or bong results in a more pleasant and richer taste from the flower strains. It’s also quick and easy, just break up a small amount of flower, put it in your piece, and enjoy.

Vape hemp flowers to enjoy them
You can consume smokable hemp flower in a dry herb vape that extracts hemp’s goodness without burning the flower. These devices heat the hemp to a lower temperature, vaporizing the cannabinoids and releasing their potent effects without burning the flower. Igniting the plant and inhaling the smoke has far more carcinogens and is much harsher. This process results in a smooth, tasty experience.
The DaVinci IQ2 Vaporizer offers a super clean hit and is one of the most advanced vaporizers on the market. This is a staff favorite at East Coast Herbalist and a great way to consume flower.
If you’d prefer to buy something easier to use and cheaper, you can always go with a hemp vape cartridge. Cartridges come in a variety of strains and different ratios of things like CBD, CBN, CBG, and Delta8. Check out our vape selection HERE.
How to cook with hemp flower
High-quality dried hemp flower is also commonly used for cooking. The most popular types of CBD edibles are candies, brownies, cookies, and cakes. The high-fat content of these delicious home-cooked delights allows for optimal cannabidiol absorption in the body. You can also add hemp flower to a slow-cooking recipe to benefit from the goodness that hemp offers. Common fats used to infuse hemp flower are olive oil, butter, or coconut oil. Then you can just add the infused product into the recipe as it is called for.
How to make CBD oil
Making CBD oil from high-quality dried hemp flower is an excellent way to use hemp in recipes, salad dressing, or topical salves. To release active ingredients like CBD in hemp flower, activate them through a process called decarboxylation. This changes the CBDa (acidic form and precursor of CBD) to CBD. This process involves applying heat to the flower. Decarb can be done by lightly breaking up the hemp flower onto a cooking tray and putting it in the oven for 90 minutes at 360F.
Once the flower is decarbed, you can slowly cook it directly into your oil of choice or butter. Here is a recipe to make a potent homemade full extract cannabis oil (FECO) at home. You can then take the FECO and incorporate it into your favorite dish using oil, butter, or another fat.
