And the quest for high quality legal CBD flower continues! — I am happy to say that we just received a brand new shipment of legal CBD flower! This time, it’s from a company called “CBD Hemp Direct”.
There was an option to get 5 grams for $30, but since the CBD flower supply has been running a little bit low, I decided to get the 30 gram package for $80.
That’s only $2.66 per gram! One of the best prices we’ve seen so far for CBD flower!
The flower from CBD Hemp Direct was packed in a foil like plastic package first, and then inside of a standard priority mail paper envelope.
It was a little beat up when it arrived, but no holes and no smell.
The main reason I’m giving it a 10 of 10 is because it was delivered so quickly. I only ordered it 3 days ago on Jan 18.
I actually have no idea if it came today (Sunday the 21st) or yesterday. It arrived on Saturday the 20th. But either way, that was blazing fast.
The design is very simple and nice. The actual package is very nice. It’s smell proof and re-sealable. Much better than some other packaging I’ve seen.
Testing Grade 5/10
Safety testing: No (-5)
Potency Testing: Yes (+3)
Terpene Analysis: Yes (+2)
First Smell 5/10
I opened the bag and immediately took a good smell. There really wasn’t much there at all. There was some smell, but on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give the smell a score of 2. Not bad at all, just not much there.
I had to update this section because after I initially opened the bag the product came in, I put it all into a glass jar. I left it for several hours, and when I came back, the smell was definitely a lot better.
I’m not sure if it’s the paper /plastic packaging, or if I just wasn’t smelling clearly at the time.
Bud Quality 7/10
Based on the photos from cbdhemp.direct (flower looked really dark and low-ish quality), I really wasn’t expecting a lot. But when I actually got some of the buds out of the bag, I was very pleasantly surprised. Actually kind of shocked when I saw how big some of them were.
Not only did the buds look nice, but they were in great condition and nicely trimmed. Moisture content was great. Not crispy dry like some other’s we’ve seen. If there wasn’t such a lack of a strong terpene smell, I’d think they actually were cured well.
Flowers were also noticeably covered in trichomes, and semi sticky to the touch.
I should say that these buds do have
some quite a few seeds. That might be a negative for some, but it’s a positive for someone like me who saves seeds for cultivation. I was able to pick about 10 15 good looking seeds out of a 1 gram bud. This isn’t anything close to what I found in Kanapinis’ flower, but it’s worth mentioning.
Vaping Taste 6/10
Even though there was not much smell inside the bag, there was definitely a nice smell when breaking apart buds. And that nice smell also translated into some really great vapor flavor as well. Very mild and pleasant. Sweet, floral, and a little skunky.
I vaporized about half a gram of the flower and the effects were great. Like vaporizing other CBD products, you get a kind of heavy feeling in the eyes, and then feel really calm. It’s very pleasant.
Overall Value 9/10
Like I said, I really wasn’t expecting a lot based on the price and the photos from the website, but after seeing it in person and trying it, I can definitely recommend this product.
It’s not the best for sure, but it’s very close to, if not the best value I’ve seen for legal CBD flower.
Thumbs up for sure!
