Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
Birthday Cake Hemp Buds
Birthday Cake Hemp Buds, Birthday Cake Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain that is created through a cross of the insanely delicious Girl Scout Cookies X Cherry Pie strains. Like it’s name suggests, this bud has a crazy tasty flavor of fruity vanilla skunk with a hint of sweet nuttiness upon exhale. The smell is a little mellower, with a sweet skunky pungency that has a slightly vanilla overtone. These buds have a super frosty appearance, much like a birthday cake, with large and dense oversized heart-shaped light forest green nugs that have sparse fiery orange hairs. Although this bud is best loved for its flavor, the effects are just as enticing. The high starts with a happy and euphoric uplifted effect that launches your mood into the sky with a complete wiping of any mental pain or racing thoughts. As your mind soars with giddiness, your body will fall into a deeply relaxing and sedative state that immediately locks you to anything you’re sitting on. You’ll fall victim to a deeply sedated state that will eventually lull you into a deep and peaceful pain-free sleep. These effects and its powerful THC level of up to 24% make Birthday Cake Kush perfect for treating chronic pain, insomnia, headaches or migraines, muscle spasms, and inflammation.
What can CBD oil help me with?
A growing body of cannabinoid research points to CBD’s ability to positively modulate pain, anxiety, and sleep. These are the three areas with the most support for CBD in health.
In addition to these applications for CBD, people buy hemp products to help with their mood, control nausea and appetite, offset the symptoms of migraines, and treat psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions.
How do I take CBD oil?
CBD oil is most commonly delivered in a tincture format. To take CBD oil, place the desired dose into your mouth or under your tongue (which increases absorption amount and speed), holding it there for up to a minute. You can also mix CBD oil into food and drink.
How much CBD oil should I take?
The prudent approach is to start low and go slow.
One rule of thumb is to take 1 drop of CBD oil per 20 pounds of body weight—so a 140-pound woman might take 7 drops of CBD oil. The amount and/or frequency of CBD can be increased over time.
Dosing for general wellness versus for sleep regulation or anxiety will vary. Anecdotally, CBD users often share that single, higher doses are useful for supporting sleep, while regular and lower doses are more helpful for combating everyday stress.
Full-spectrum vs. isolate: What’s better?
CBD oil products come in two different formats:
Full-spectrum CBD oil incorporates all of the compounds present in the hemp plant, other cannabinoids (including no more than 0.3% THC), terpenes, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids. This full spectrum of hemp bioactives is closest to nature’s design of the plant. Only full-spectrum CBD triggers the “entourage effect,” a synergy that a full array of hemp plant compounds (cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) provides. The entourage effect helps with mood and anxiety disorders.
Then there’s CBD isolate. As the name implies, CBD isolate contains just concentrated CBD, with no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or essential fatty acids.
You should always choose a full-spectrum CBD oil.
