What Is Greenhouse Hemp Flower?

greenhouse cbd hemp flower

Traditionally a ‘greenhouse’ is any glass housing facility for the purpose of growing plants that require protection from cold or extreme weather. Here at Colorado Breeders Depot, we use a greenhouse, which is actually several buildings, to grow thousands of pounds of hemp each year.

By specializing in bulk flower production, we can offer wholesale CBD flower online for almost any size order needs. Any smaller ‘popcorn’ nugs that are bulk harvested get used to make our specialty CBD products like our Caviar pre-rolls and our tinctures.

Using the greenhouse, our sturdier hemp flower genetics can flourish with ample space to stretch and grow tall. Lighting costs diminish greatly thanks to the 300+ days of sunshine that Colorado is blessed with annually. Similarly, the space and sunlight allow the hemp flowers to hit maximum potential for both size and potency. Constant photosynthesis often results in a more potent, higher-CBD content within greenhouse-grown bud.

Our plants in the greenhouse require less attention and exactness, but we still baby them and check daily for any sort of deficiencies in nutrients. Grow teams in our greenhouse settings expertly ensure the cleanest, most natural growth process. None of our greenhouse flower uses synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Only natural essential oils are used in our growing process.

Is Greenhouse flower Still Smokable Hemp Flower?

All of our greenhouse-grown flower is smokable and safe for human consumption, but this does not ring universally true. Some companies grow industrial crop outdoors depending on their location, but some use greenhouses. Industrial hemp or any hemp plant grown utilizing non-organic chemicals to prevent diseases or nutrition deficits should not be smoked due to the risks of consuming these substances. Similarly, some greenhouse grow operations cannot prevent pests from getting into their greenhouses and the flower can be full of mites, other bugs, or insect feces.

Colorado Breeders Depot prides itself in organic practice growth methods which means all-natural pesticides and nothing synthetic touches the soil or plant. Again, this cannot be said for every company. Similarly, some grow operations don’t mind using synthetics or chemicals to help keep their plants “healthy” and growing despite improper practices or nutrient levels.

We make safe and clean growing practices for our smokable CBD flower a top priority, no matter where we grow it.

Can All CBD Hemp Flower Be Grown in Greenhouses?

Unfortunately, no. We carry several indoor strains that would do terribly if grown using natural-light methods and schedules. Humidity and CO2 control is much harder to accomplish with bulk grows and larger spaces. These indoor genetics are so fussy that we refer to them as ‘diva’ strains— one wrong move and they refuse to perform. The constant sunlight would simply be too much and the plants would become stress, therefore produced subpar flower.
The strains we grow in our greenhouse are hardy and bred to be sturdy and thrive using sunlight. This hardiness also allows them to yield more flower and thrive growing close to other plants.

Greenhouse Flower & Potency

Is all our greenhouse bud less potent that our indoor strains? The short answer is: no. The long answer is that every strain is different and every yield of said strain is different. Potency is never guaranteed or 100% predictable, due to the possibility of various grow practices, soil quality, water quality, and carbon dioxide presence. For those that use CBD for pain, the more potent the bud, the better it is for these soothing effects.

The greenhouse method employs the sun. Millions of lumens hit the plants and continuously feed them nutrients, constantly photosynthesizing, and therefore growing much bigger flower buds than some indoor strains. These greenhouse strains thriving in the sun can be more potent than indoor strains. Allowing the plant to use all these excess energy makes for higher CBD flower and larger percentages of minor cannabinoids.

We post all of our COAs in each strain’s product page for you to compare and contrast a complete cannabinoid profile of all of our premium hemp flower.

Growing Bulk Greenhouse CBD Flower With Care

We definitely have more plants per hand in the greenhouse, but only because there is so many more plants. These strains require less devotion but still receive equal attention overall. All of our greenhouse flower is hand-manicured and tested daily for health and nutrient content.

Our greenhouse projects are dotted across Colorado and several other states, allowing individualized teams to focus solely on caring for these plants during their growth. While our indoor grows are all at our main headquarters, we handpick the members of greenhouse teams we trust to put love, care, and attention into these sun-loving CBD hemp flowers.

Greenhouse Hemp Is Cost Effective

The sun provides unlimited lumens. This alone saves tens of thousands of dollars each month in our own resource cost, and these savings are passed on to the customer. The greenhouse buds are easier as we have years of experience and familiarity with them. If we save money, you save money. The price differential between indoor and greenhouse translates purely to cost of production and not a comparison of quality.

Buying wholesale CBD bud grown in a greenhouse is cheaper than wholesale indoor strains, not because they are worse in quality but because we simply have more of it growing due to space! Be sure to check out our bulk deals and our ever-changing monthly specials for even more savings.

What’s a “greenhouse” when it comes to hemp flower?

Traditionally a ‘greenhouse’ is any glass housing facility for the purpose of growing plants that require protection from cold or extreme weather. Here at Colorado Breeders Depot, we use a greenhouse (actually several buildings) to grow thousands of pounds of hemp each year.

By using the greenhouse, our sturdier hemp flower genetics can flourish with amble space to stretch and grow tall. Lighting costs diminish greatly thanks to the 300+ days of sunshine that Colorado is blessed with annually.  We are able to pass on these savings to our customers in the form of very competitive prices.

Our plants in the greenhouse require less attention and exactness, but we still baby them and check daily for any sort of deficiencies in nutrients.

All greenhouse hemp flower is smokable, right?

In the world of hemp as a whole, the answer is no. All of our greenhouse-grown flower is smokable and safe for human consumption, but this does not ring universally true. Some companies grow industrial crop outdoors depending on their location, but some use greenhouses.

Colorado Breeders Depot prides itself in organic practice growth methods which means all-natural pesticides and nothing synthetic touches the soil or plant. Again, this cannot be said for every company, which means the presence of pests is possible, which means bug poop on the flower you’ll be smoking. We think that’s pretty gross.

Similarly, some grow operations don’t mind using synthetics or chemicals to help keep their plants “healthy” and growing despite improper practices or nutrient levels. We recommend ensuring you are consuming safe and clean flower if you are shopping elsewhere, as we ensure all products we produce for consumption is grown with you in mind first and foremost.

Can all hemp flower be grown in this greenhouse method?

Unfortunately, no. We carry several indoor strains that would do terribly if grown using natural-light methods and schedules.

Do these strains get less attention by your grow team?

Absolutely not.  We are known for the attention we pay to all of our strains. We definitely have more plants per hand in the greenhouse, but only because there is so many more plants. These strains receive equal attention overall. All of our greenhouse flower is hand-manicured and tested daily for health and nutrient content.

What are the benefits of consuming CBD hemp flower?

The list of potential benefits from CBD hemp flower continues to grow every year. The non-exhaustive list of possible positive effects include PTSD symptom reduction, inflammation reduction, lessening pain from cramps and Crohn’s disease, uterine pain, appetite stimulation, anxiety reduction, better sleep, arthritis symptom reduction, and quelling symptoms of glaucoma.

This is not a list of proven medical benefits, but research-driven and anecdotal examples of the ever-growing series of positives that using hemp flower can yield.

How should I consume hemp flower for maximum benefit?

While smoking hemp flower is by far the most popular method of ingestion, it is understood that the lungs actually absorb vapor much better than combusted plant matter in the form of smoke.

Using a vaporizer to consume our product is the most effective way to get cannabinoids into your body. Vaporizing hemp flower is a smoother way to ingest and can even leave less lingering odors behind as well.

What are the effects of using CBD hemp flower?

Using CBD flower in smaller amounts can promote mild stimulation and mood-boosting properties. By attaching to certain receptors in your brain, CBD hemp flower has been found to reduce anxiety, cramps, upset stomach, insomnia and glaucoma symptoms.

While we cannot tout medical benefits of using CBD, there is clearly a reason so many people have turned to using the best CBD flower on the market.

What are the effects of using CBG hemp flower?

CBG is recognized as a stimulating, slightly energetic cannabinoid. Using CBG flower can result in mood uplift, a slight increase in energy and a general sense of well-being. The cannabinoids in CBG flower have shown reduction in cramp severity, nausea and seizure potential or severity.

While using CBG flower does not get you ‘high’ in a traditional sense, the potential for pain-relief, mood-improvement and physical stimulation can feel extremely enjoyable.

What do hemp buds feel like to the touch?  Are they sticky? Fluffy?

Not all hemp buds feel alike. Some strains thick with a coat of sticky trichomes will feel much different than a light, fluffy nug that is covered in loosely packed buds and long red hairs. If there is a specific feel you are looking for, be sure to check out hi-res photos of each strain, or reach out to us to find out which strain in stock is the stickiest or the fluffiest.

Can I mix it in tea? Are the effects different from eating it?

Absolutely! Simply infuse our premium hemp flower as you would ordinary store-bought high-quality tea.  Place your ground-up flower into a strainer or infuser and soak in simmering water for about 20 minutes. This will allow the plant to convert CBDA into usable CBD for your body through a process called decarboxylation.

After simmering, decant into a mug or however you want to store it. Some people combine teabags at this point, or just add a splash of cream. The effects of making a hemp flower infusion in liquid should feel very similar to eating it, because your body is processing it the same way. It may hit you faster because the stomach can process liquids a bit easier than solid foods.

Can I eat it?  Are the effects different from smoking it?

Cooking with hemp flower is rising in popularity as another way to ingest CBD, CBG and a slew of minor cannabinoids. The effects are different than being smoked, as they do not come on immediately. Because your body has to process the cannabinoids in the gut, it can take an hour or more to feel the subtle effects of hemp flower-infused dishes.

The effects of eaten hemp flower can potentially last longer and provide relief in a softer way. We don’t suggest just eating the flower raw, but instead activating the chemicals using heat and infusion. Check out some suggestions on how to hemp-ify your snacks

Is hemp flower legal?

Since 2018, any and all COA-validated hemp products or derivatives from hemp have been legal on a federal level. Since states and local ordinances can override Federal legislation, there is a possibility your city or state continues to ban hemp flower.

Be sure to make sure you are behaving within legal limits before purchasing. We are happy to help you ensure your locality allows possession of hemp products.

What are the benefits of using hemp flower?

Studies continue to show more and more of what cannabinoids can do. Some studies show that it can relieve internal inflammation from IBS and Crohn’s disease.

Hemp flower has been proven to reduce ocular pressure found in glaucoma patients. Reduction in anxiety symptoms, as well as stimulation of CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain make for a potential mood-boosting effect. CBD increases GABA in the brain which can have some effects mood as well.

This is not marijuana–the lack of a ‘psychoactive high’ makes for an immediately effective plant that will not slow you down or take you out of whatever you are working on.

Can I smoke hemp flower and pass a drug test?

All of our hemp flower meets local and federal requirements for THC content, but some tests can detect at lower levels than our flower. Hair-based drug tests are very unlikely to result in any failing quantity in your system, but some oral/urine tests have incredibly low thresholds for THC.

There does exist the possibility of failing a drug test due to heavy use or accumulation in your body. While CBD is legal and cannot cause a failure, the modern drug testing limits for THC can mean even hemp flower can result in a failure.

What does smoking hemp flower taste like?

Terpenes play a huge role in what a hemp strain will taste like. Some of our strains are high in limonene and can taste a little like citrus on the exhale. A strain heavy in pinene will have a piney, earthy flavor. There are so many ways terpenes can interact and combine— every strain has a different profile. We are happy to give further details on any specific strain’s flavor, just send us your questions!

Will my breath smell like with cannabis if I eat or smoke it?

While cooking with hemp flower often dilutes the taste down to a minimum, smoking hemp flower can leave your breath smelling a bit smokey. While tasting the terpenes is a joy for many hemp flower consumers, sometimes discretion is important.

Consider our concentrates which taste fantastic but won’t linger as much as smoking a joint. However, all you need is a mint to avoid this potential issue.

Is there a difference between CBD flower and CBG flower?

There is a noticeable difference between CBD flower and CBG flower. Our experience is that CBG is softer, a bit more subtle than CBD— especially for users who are experienced with consuming CBD flower.

For us, there is a cleaner mental uplift that follows smoking CBG that is not as perceptible in CBD. While the plants and nugs may look similar, their terpene profiles and their cannabinoids differ greatly, offering up two unique experiences that are best experienced firsthand.

CBD flower has a tendency to feel a bit more relaxing than CBG flower, but both synergize well among their respective profiles and definitely synergize well when combined.

Is CBD hemp flower more medicinally helpful than CBG hemp flower?

While we can’t give any sort of medical testimony or tout any medical benefits, we will tell you this: Both CBD and CBG have a very real effect on the brain and body. CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid in most hemp flower, but in recent years CBG has begun to earn respect as “the mother of all cannabinoids” because it is a precursor to all over cannabinoids.

Thankfully, we offer hemp flower chock full each of these compounds, so you have a chance to sample and see what works best for your needs and what you will enjoy more. Everyone’s biochemistry is different and reacts to CBD hemp flower and CBG hemp flower a little differently.

How do you ensure the quality of your hemp flower?

Quality control is of utmost importance. Every single step of the way, we are triple-checking our plants’ health and wellbeing.  We use state-of-the-art grow rooms and a greenhouse system that has been mastered over the years to provide high quality, consistent results. Don’t listen to us…let our customers assure you that Colorado Breeders Depot provides the best possible quality premium hemp flower.

What makes your hemp flower better than others?

We have been active in the hemp breeding and growing industry for much longer than many new upstarts. We slow-cure all of our flower, hand-trim and provide premium nutrients so that our flower grows incredible, densely packed buds overflowing with CBD.

Pouring love and care into the soil ensures a happy plant, and a happy plant ensures happy customers. Our hemp flower stands out among the crowd through consistency, reliability, strength and looks. We challenge anyone to find a better crop of the strains we offer.

How is hemp flower different from strain to strain?

Different hemp strains contain different cannabinoid profiles and different terpenes. One strain can be higher in CBN than another, smelling musky and skunky, while another can have lower CBD content and balance itself with a lemony aftertaste because of its terpenes.

We post all of our COAs beside different strains so you can choose the strain that might be best for you, and we will soon be posting terpene profiles as well. Finding the terps and cannabinoids that work for your needs takes a bit of sampling, but we are here to help pick the strain(s) which work best with your body and experiences.

How can I find out a strain’s cannabinoid profile?

Each of our strains is lab-tested and comes with an up-to-date report with the current harvests’ cannabinoid profile. Every single strain page on this website features a photo of the latest report for that specific strain.

We are more than happy to go over these profiles if you have any questions on how to gain the most knowledge from these strain profiles.

Can I drive after I smoke hemp flower?

Because hemp flower does raise GABA and anandamide levels in the brain, there may be a mood-altering potential for each user depending upon each individual’s particular natural reaction to the chemicals in the flower.

Therefore, we, and most of our industry colleagues, always recommend users become familiar with before hopping right behind the wheel. Since hemp cannabinoids contain practically no intoxicating THC, there is no THC-induced chemical risk to driving after smoking hemp high in CBD.

Some CBD users report that very large doses can cause some feelings of relaxation or sedation, so it’s best to learn how your body interacts with all 200 known cannabinoids found in our hemp flower.
