CBD cigarettes are increasingly becoming the next big trend in a long list of CBD products. The public’s interest in CBD cigarettes is most likely increasing due to its recognition of the differences between marijuana and hemp. In legal states you can stand outside on a public sidewalk and smoke a hemp joint; although, it looks and smells like marijuana, and you may get funny looks from people or get a cop wanting to talk to you.

Why Smoke Hemp?
It is often reported that smoking hemp induces the same mental and physical relaxation that often comes from marijuana, but without the psychoactive effects. Smoking hemp can be good for reducing inflammation, pain management, anxiety, stress, headaches, mood disorders, or simply relaxing after a stressful day. Upon smoking CBD cigarettes, smoke enters the lungs and almost immediately gets into the blood stream. As such, the effects mentioned above begin to take place right away. CBD cigarettes are considered to have a fairly high bioavailability ranging from 30 – 50 percent. This means that out of 200mg of CBD, 60 – 100mg actually get into the endocannabinoid system.
The Legalities of Smoking Hemp
Smoking hemp has been decriminalized from the federal perspective. However, the legalities of smoking it, particularly in public, remains in the individual states’ hands. If you are in a state like Nevada, then CBD cigarettes are easily justifiable. However, smoking a hemp joint looks and smells just like marijuana. Smoking hemp in public may incite cops to questioning you, so having a COA (certificate of analysis) handy, proving its hemp, helps. Simply staying away from smoking it in public works even better. However, in states where marijuana is not yet legal, hemp seems to get a lot more backlash. People tend to have less knowledge on the differences between THC, CBD, hemp and marijuana in such states.
What to Take Away
Hemp in the form of CBD cigarettes can be very beneficial to certain individuals. Hemp has a full range of cannabinoids and terpenes. A lot of the medicinal benefit from marijuana can be obtained by smoking hemp because it is essentially the same plant, but with the levels of THC and CBD swapped. Nevertheless, it is important to know what you’re smoking by seeing the lab report. Not only will that provide assurance to the levels of THC being below the legal limit, but also that there are no heavy metals, pesticides, or undesired microbials.
