Bud refers to the flowers or flowering tops of the female hemp plant. These buds contain the highest concentrations of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds, making them the best part of the plant for consumption.

CBD-rich hemp buds come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and aromas, depending on the strain, growing conditions, and harvesting techniques.

Buds are commonly consumed by smoking or vaporizing, allowing the inhalation of cannabinoids and terpenes for immediate effects. They are also used in making CBD concentrates, edibles, tinctures, and topicals.
