Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural non-psychoactive compound, derived from cannabis plants that have recently become very popular because of its potential health benefits. There are many ways to smoke CBD, like smoking hemp flowers, CBD pre-rolls or CBD cigarettes. This method of using CBD may be particularly beneficial for people wanting to quit smoking tobacco. In this article, we will cover the benefits of smoking CBD, and provide insight into why people are choosing to smoke CBD.

The benefits of smoking CBD flower

Smoking CBD is one way of using CBD to get the desired effects for mental and physical well-being without the psychoactive effects. Key health benefits of smoking CBD flower include:

  • Immediate effect – one of the biggest benefits of smoking CBD flower is that it is the most effective way to feel the effects almost instantly.
  • Stress relief – by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD products can provide a calming effect, stabilise mood and promote relaxation.
  • Pain management – people with chronic pain have reported that smoking CBD flower can help provide pain relief and minimise inflammation.
  • Better sleep – smoking or drinking CBD flower tea before bedtime can help people relax and fall asleep more easily.
  • Neuroprotective properties – some research suggests that CBD products may have neuroprotective properties that could benefit people with neurological disorders.

The immediate effects of smoking CBD

As mentioned above, one of the biggest perks of smoking CBD is that smoking CBD has good bioavailability. This means that the effects of smoking CBD can be felt almost immediately, because the inhalation of CBD allows it to enter the bloodstream very quickly, and could be useful for people in need of feeling the effects quickly.

Smoking CBD vs smoking tobacco

Smoking hemp cigarettes has sparked interest among chronic tobacco smokers looking to quit cigarettes. The main difference between smoking hemp flower and tobacco is that the latter contains nicotine which is a highly addictive substance. One of the benefits of smoking CBD pre-rolls is that it may be a good way to deal with tobacco withdrawal, and CBD’s benefits can help reduce nicotine cravings.

Smoking cannabis vs CBD oil

Choosing between smoking CBD and using CBD oil depends on personal needs. Both options provide similar benefits, the main difference is that because CBD oil is consumed orally, it will take longer to feel the effect. However, unlike smoking CBD hemp flower, using the oil is better for people who want to measure and adjust their dosage. Even though smoking CBD cigarettes is a lot better than smoking tobacco and may be a better alternative for chronic smokers, it may still have some risks associated with smoking. So for people who are concerned about their respiratory health, our recommendation is to choose good quality hemp seed oil to feel the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant instead of smoking CBD.

Is smoking CBD safe?

Initial evidence suggests that smoking CBD is a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes. However, choosing to smoke CBD flowers still has a negative effect of smoke entering your lungs. So if you are not a smoker, we strongly encourage you to consume CBD in other ways, such as using CBD oil or making tea with our premium hemp flower buds.

If you wish to try CBD cigarettes, you should always buy hemp buds or CBD pre-rolls from a reputable source with 3rd-party lab testing documents. If you are taking any medications please consult with a healthcare professional before smoking CBD hemp flower.

CBD and drug tests

Drug tests are designed to measure THC metabolites. The CBD is usually not the target of a standard drug test, however, different tests may vary in their sensitivity and the substances they screen for. Smoking a CBD cigarette may not show on a test, however, if you’re using full or broad-spectrum CBD oil, it may lead to a positive test result. To ensure that you do not get a positive test result, you should not use any CBD products that have even trace amounts of THC for at least 30 days before tests.

Is smoking CBD legal?

The first state to legalise medical use of hemp plant was California in 1996. Now the medical use of cannabis flower is legalised in 40 states. Medical or recreational use of industrial hemp flowers has been approved in 24 states and the District of Columbia.

The United States Farm Bill in 2018 legalised the cultivation of cannabis sativa plants and its derivatives like a CBD hemp flower or CBD oil, as long as the hemp products have > 0.3% THC. Smokable CBD and other CBD products meet this requirement, however, individual states might ban the use of CBD joints, so check your local laws before purchasing any CBD products.
