Question I get asked most. Can you smoke CBD?
Yes, CBD can be smoked through CBD vapes, CBD cigarettes, CBD pre rolls, and raw CBD flowers. However, after the recent controversy surrounding CBD vapes, most people (doctors) no longer suggest you smoke CBD in this form… but I have a few cartridges that I still use due to the convenience of discreetly and not smelling like a high school teenager on my lunch break 🙂
What are the benefits of smoking CBD?
The benefits of smoking CBD are that it offers the most effective route of delivery. CBD inhalation has the most rapid effect and means that the benefits of smoking CBD can be felt almost immediately after use.
A route of delivery is the phrase used to identify the path that a substance takes when it enters our body. Inhalation is the fastest route of delivery and the most rapid way to experience the benefits of smoking CBD because the substance can travel directly to the brain without being disrupted by our circulatory system.
Non-intoxicating and won’t get you high
CBD-rich hemp flowers closely resemble the appearance and smell of marijuana, but will not bring about any negative psychoactive effects. Hemp flowers are CBD-rich and low in THC (below .3%), offering a calming and relaxing sensation, without getting you “high”.
Offers a natural alternative to vaping
When vaping first rose to popularity in recent years, many believed that it was a much healthier alternative to smoking. However, this thought has been debunked after a rise in vaping lead to a national health epidemic of lung injuries and illness.
The vaping health crisis caused scientists to take a closer look at common ingredients within vapes, and currently, the ingredient of concern that scientists believe may be the culprit is the vitamin E acetate present within vape solutions.
If smoking is your preferred route of delivery when it comes to your daily dose of CBD; CBD flowers, CBD pre rolls, and CBD cigarettes allow you to smoke the raw hemp plant itself – no ingredients added.
Helps to support healthy inflammatory function
Inflammation is on everyone’s mind these days because for much of western society, it’s become a chronic issue. Chronic inflammation is known to lead to achey joints, stiffness, and pain, among other issues. CBD has been shown to help support healthy inflammatory function.
May assist those looking to quit nicotine cigarettes
Thanks to a recent study published by NIH: National Library of Medicine, there’s evidence to prove that CBD may help people looking to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes.
Supports a calm mood
Whereas marijuana has been a go-to for those struggling with stress, recent literature shows that the high amount of THC within marijuana may enhance feelings of anxiousness or paranoia.
CBD, the calming cannabinoid within marijuana, is present in a higher content within the hemp plant. Therefore, the benefits of smoking CBD from a hemp plant might be the better option for those struggling to calm the mind. It has also been confirmed that CBD may be helpful in improving the symptoms of anxiety.
