Crescent Flower FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions About Hemp Flower
The most important thing to know about hemp flower is that it is not marijuana, though the plants do look identical. Here we answer some of the most common questions about hemp flower, its cultivation, and quality control.
Is hemp flower really legal?
Yes! As of 2018, industrial-grade hemp is completely legal in the United States. That’s when the latest Farm Bill was passed making it federally legal to produce, distribute, and purchase industrial hemp and CBD products for the first time in 100 years.
What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Marijuana gets you high, hemp does not. Hemp, by definition, contains less than 0.3 percent THC, the cannabinoid responsible for psychoactive effects. By contrast, marijuana contains much higher concentrations of THC, sometimes even as much as 30 percent THC content. Hemp and marijuana look identical, and both may be rich in CBD. But only marijuana will have an intoxicating effect.
Do I need a medical marijuana prescription to buy Crescent Flower?
No. You can walk right into any CBD shop where Crescent Flower is sold and leave with beautiful, fresh hemp flowers (or you can order online right now). And remember, it’s not marijuana!
Does Crescent Flower contain THC (Delta-9 THC)?
Yes. Crescent Flower, like all hemp flower, does contain trace amounts of THC. But it always contains less than 0.3 percent Delta-9 THC, making it completely legal to purchase and consume.
Will Crescent Flower show up on a drug test?
Although our hemp flower will not get you high, it does contain detectable levels of THC. We strongly recommend that anyone who may be subject to drug testing avoid using any product that contains any amount of THC. Instead, use only pure CBD isolate products that are THC-free, such as Crescent CBD Drops.
Does Crescent Flower contain CBD?
Yes! Our strains of hemp flower are specially selected for their high CBD content. We have some of the most potent flowers in the business. But don’t take our word for it…check the lab reports that are included with each order.
Where does Crescent Flower come from?
Much of our product comes from the hemp mecca itself, California, where mild weather and sunny days create some of the best growing conditions in the world. We’re also bringing in flower from select independent farmers in other states who adhere to our stringent requirements: excellent quality control, organic practices, and plenty of love and care.
How do you ensure quality?
We pay attention to every detail of every step of the process, from cultivation to hand-trimming to storage. To ensure the high quality of our product, we have visited more than a hundred farms across Oregon, Colorado, California, and other states, sorting through tons of cannabis before choosing our partners. Once we decide to work with an organic farm, we regularly visit the hemp fields to make sure that every aspect of the operation is consistent with our high standards. When it comes to feeding, pruning, and watering, even the smallest mistakes can have a big impact on the quality of a bud. We require that hemp flowers be harvested at their peak, then slow-cured and trimmed by hand. Finally, we make sure that each crop is independently lab tested to ensure that it has all the good stuff consumers want (high CBD content, legal amount of THC content) and none of the bad stuff (mold, pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants).
Is Crescent Flower organic?
Yes! Offering an organic product is very important to us. Hemp is a phytoremediator, meaning that its roots can soak up anything in the soil. When it is grown in living soil without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial agents, it’s not just a smoother and cleaner product—it’s part of a healthier, more sustainable world.
What does “hand-trimmed” mean?
Hand trimming hemp flower is one of the final steps of hemp cultivation. A skilled trimmer shapes the bud by hand in a way that maximizes its unique beauty and potency. Trimming is an art form in its own right, and it’s one we are proud to host at our own facility.
What does “slow cured” mean?
Proper curing is an underrated but essential part of cultivating high-quality hemp flower. It involves drying a fresh-cut cannabis plant while preserving its flavor and cannabinoids. If you’ve ever cut fresh basil and hung it to dry upside down, you have an idea of how we cure our cannabis at Crescent Flower: slowly and gently, with an eye toward long-term storage.
How is Crescent Flower shipped?
Your order arrives via UPS, usually within three to seven business days. We include a printed copy of the certificate of analysis (COA) so that you know exactly what you’re getting in each shipment.
