In a world where CBD is fighting hard to distance itself from the negative connotations of marijuana, today we bring you a product that looks amusingly similar to weed: hemp flower buds from Industrial Farms! In this review, we’ll be going over three different strains: Sour Diesel, Magic Jordan, and Green Gas. Some of these strains may sound familiar to you but rest assured, none of these strains have more than 0.3% THC, the legal limit for any CBD product. This is a little bit of a tricky product to use if you’ve never tried hemp flowers before, so we’ll review the company, pricing, and appearance, as well as go over some ways to use these flowers and which method we preferred.
*Lab results can easily be found on the product descriptions of their website, or by scanning a QR code on the physical product.*
As mentioned in the introduction, I received three different strains of hemp flowers from Industrial Farms. The packaging was very simple and easy to open with just a tear-off strip. One thing I didn’t like about this type of packaging was the name of the particular strain was only a sticker on the tear-off tab on the top of the packaging. If you decide to buy more than one variety of these hemp flowers, make sure you keep track of which is which since it’s easy to get confused (all the packets look the same). I ended up placing the tear off tab in the packaging so I would know which one was which, but you can write on the package as well (a sharpie worked well). A large square sticker is on the front that displays the company name, size, product type, as well as a QR code that you can use your smartphone’s camera to look up. The back of the packaging is completely see-through, which lets you see the color and size of the hemp flowers. There is a large white sticker on the back that states the product is produced in accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, as well as a disclaimer that the product contains less that 0.3% THC. The disclaimer also states that while the effects are not intoxicating like the real marijuana strain, you may not notice the results until 2-3 hours later after you’ve used the product. For this reason, they caution against operating machinery or driving, as it may cause drowsiness. For all health concerns, definitely consult your physician before trying this product for the first time, especially if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Now that we’ve gone over the product packaging, company, and pricing, it’s time to dive right into the actual review of the product!
