If you make your own CBD oil, cook with hemp, or use a lot of hemp for any other purpose, then it might make sense to buy it wholesale. You can usually buy bulk quantities for a much better price overall. Luckily, hemp wholesalers are becoming easier to find, so you should have your choice between at least a few different companies. Here are a few tips to follow when buying bulk hemp flower regardless of who you buy from.
Make sure you like the strain you're buying.
There are so many different hemp strains out there. Over the past few years, especially, growers have really been experimenting with different genetics to create hemp strains that contain more CBD, more CBG, and a variety of other cannabinoids. You used to be able to assume most hemp you bought would be high in CBD, but that's not necessarily the case anymore as some growers are selectively growing high-CBG and high-CBN strains. So, before you buy a bulk quantity of hemp, do some research about the strain you're about to buy.
If the seller has lab results to show you the cannabinoids concentrations, that's awesome. Look them over. If the seller does not have these reports, then do a little research on the strain to get an idea of its average cannabinoid concentrations. Make sure those are in line with your needs.
Make sure it is shipped in breathable packaging.
Hemp needs to be dried out before it can be packaged and shipped. However, there will still be a small amount of moisture in the hemp when it is packaged. If the hemp gets sealed up in a totally non-breathable bag and sent through the mail, where it may be exposed to warm temperatures, then the hemp might grow some mold. So, you want your hemp to be packaged in breathable packaging for shipping.
Most wholesale companies should be on top of this, but it does not hurt to check before you order. If a company is used to shipping a shorter distance, and you order from further away, they may need to take some extra precautions with your order.
Buying hemp flower in bulk is a great choice for many who make their own CBD products. Just make sure you do your research into the strains you're going to buy, and also check that your hemp will be sent in breathable packaging. Enjoy!
