CBD flowers are made up of buds of different sizes: the largest ones are located in the upper part of the flower (the usual ones of La Cordobesa), while the smaller ones are in the lower part. These CBD buds have grown less because they probably received a little less light or nutrients during cultivation. In nature, it happens as in life: some grow up and become Zumosol's cousins, and others are small and graceful, due to genetics or diet. The question we are often asked in this regard is: with CBD buds, does size matter?
The small buds of a CBD flower have the same aroma and properties as their large counterparts, but certainly may have a slightly lower concentration of CBD and other cannabinoids. It doesn't always happen. There are some varieties that, due to genetics, tend to generate smaller but super powerful buds, as is the case of La Cordobesa Limonera . Others, on the contrary, naturally give large buds, like our latest harvest of La Cordobesa Helada .
However, given the risk of CBD buds losing concentration of cannabinoids in their mini version, at ProfesorCBD we offer them at a reduced price, in packs of 15 or 30 g, at €2/g (temporary offer). A fabulous opportunity to try €9/g flowers for less than a quarter of their value. As you will see, whether or not size matters becomes a relative question.
The rest of the parts of a hemp plant are stem, seed and leaves.
Now, let's talk about the origin: Spanish bud beats Swiss bud
Regardless of its size, the origin of the CBD buds does matter. Our recommendation is that you always opt for CBD buds from Spain , Italy or Portugal , where the highest quality standards are met. The CBD buds of Swiss origin that are currently abundant on the market stand out, on the contrary, for their opacity. The unintelligible analyzes are too simple and from unrecognizable laboratories: it is important that your CBD buds are accompanied by an exhaustive analysis from an independent laboratory that you find through Google, as is the case with our Spanish-grown CBD flowers . This obscurantism of the Swiss heart , increasingly frequent in Europe due to the facilities of the Swiss Government around its cultivation, is replicated in the production methods. You will often read that the CBD flower of Swiss origin is grown in a greenhouse: in a greenhouse, with natural light. However, Swiss greenhouses are not the small, controlled spaces in which CBD is cultivated in Spain, Italy or Portugal, but huge warehouses where factors as important as pests or the degree of humidity are practically impossible to control.
In conclusion, it is important that you know that not all CBD buds are created equal . And that, precisely, the size is not the characteristic that most differentiates them. Hemp is a plant that, like all plant products, absorbs part of the substances present there from the soil in which it is grown. For this reason, it is necessary that your CBD flowers always come from organic cultivation, with seeds certified by the European Union and cannabinoid analysis available. All La Cordobesa flowers meet these standards.
To sight and touch, a CBD bud stands out for being rich in trichomes or hairs (it is a sign that terpenes abound - substances responsible for the good aroma of plants and with their own extra benefits) and presenting a crunchy and sticky texture ."
