Then, he made an odd promise, for a guy brandishing a glass pipe and a lighter: “It won’t get you stoned,” he said. “It’s CBD.”

CBD is one of the many chemical compounds in a class called “cannabinoids” that naturally occur in cannabis plants. While THC is the most famous of cannabinoids for its ability to get us high, CBD is a rapidly rising star for its capacity to deliver mental and physical benefits without the giggles, paranoia, or couch-lock. Eaze, a marijuana delivery service that operates in California, reported an “exceptionally high” demand for CBD in 2017, which led the company to quadruple its product offerings in the category. Chris Kelly, a representative of Tikun Olam, an Israeli company at the forefront of medical marijuana, calls Avidekel—his employer’s highest-CBD strain—the “golden child” of its offerings. Rolling Stone deemed it one of the five best strains of 2017.

This is often called the “entourage effect,” or as Lester Grinspoon, a psychiatrist and professor emeritus at Harvard Medical School calls it, the “ensemble effect.” (Like so much of the research surrounding cannabis, which is heavy on anecdotal evidence and light on hard science due to marijuana’s status as a Schedule I drug, the entourage effect is the source of healthy debate.)
Our buds express extremely large and plentiful trichomes because they’re grown in almost absurdly ideal connoisseur conditions in our organic, indoor facilities. You’ll find that Secret Nature buds are much stickier than hemp nugs you’ve tried from other brands — Secret Nature is also more potent and tastes better.
With outdoor grows, it’s almost impossible to preserve trichomes since quantity outweighs quality. Indoor buds are usually stickier, however, in part because they’re also handled more gently.
Why is CBD flower so sticky?
These trichomes can contain any number of different cannabinoids. Just because it’s sticky doesn’t mean your bud is weed — it might contain a dominant cannabinoid other than THC.
What is the most potent CBD flower?
Really, any place is suitable for grinding as long as it’s clean, level, and out of reach of younger hands. The important thing is picking a single place where you’ll grind all your plant matter to keep the seeds of future messes from taking root.
