Hemp is what we refer to as the workhorse of the cannabis plant. The marijuana plant is primarily used for smoking, vaping, edibles, tinctures, and more because of the higher THC content that produces the intoxicating high effect.
Hemp, on the other hand, is successful because of its low THC content. The hemp plant contains less than 0.3% THC and is excellent for those not looking for a high. Hemp has found other uses in society, including textiles, food, body care, and even medicine. However, the thing that is becoming more and more popular is the hemp cigarette. Let’s explore some of the value that hemp smokes can offer.
Everything You Want To Know About Hemp Cigarettes
As the world of cannabis changes, new products are popping up left and right. Hemp cigarettes are fast rising into stardom, and for a good reason! Let’s go over everything you need to know about hemp smokes and some of the reasons they are becoming more and more popular.
Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana
Before we dive into the benefits of hemp, we want to describe the difference between hemp and marijuana when it comes to the cannabis plant. Like we mentioned above, the main difference between these two is the percentage of THC cannabinoid. Hemp is a term used to classify varieties of Cannabis that contain 0.3% or less THC content. It’s also used to describe non-intoxicating Cannabis that is harvested for its derived use in many industrial products.
Marijuana is the term that is used to classify varieties of Cannabis that has more than .3% THC and is known to induce psychotropic or euphoric effects on the consumer.
Hemp smokes are becoming more popular. They can replace the tobacco in regular cigarettes and instead use cannabidiol rich hemp with low THC levels. They are also known as CBD smokes or CBD cigarettes.
Why Hemp Smokes Are Increasing In Popularity
We get a lot of questions that reference hemp smokes and their relation to tobacco and nicotine. Are they actually safer?
The tobacco and nicotine mixed with other ingredients found in cigarettes are more potent than even narcotics like cocaine. You’ve seen the Surgeon General warnings about the harmful effects that come with smoking standard cigars and cigarettes. Nicotine is known to be a precursor to hypertension and cancers, which can be prevented. Plus, nicotine is highly addictive and significantly deteriorates the quality of user’s lives. Though they may help relax smokers, their side effects aren’t worth the famous “nicotine buzz.”
On the other hand, CBD is a cannabinoid, a compound with the potential to activate the endocannabinoid system receptors in our bodies. The endocannabinoid system is essential in boosting the signal for homeostatic reactions. Homeostasis is defined as the state of internal stability within the body. It’s essentially the process in which we maintain inner balance with things like body temperature, water levels, and salt levels.
CBD VS Hemp Cigarettes
CBD in hemp smokes might help with tension in muscles and a feeling of calm, and there have also been some links in relieving stress. Though THC is known to cause increased psychoactivity, CBD smokes are made from hemp with THC’s shallow doses. When you smoke hemp, you’re not going to get that high feeling or any addictive properties.
We think that CBD cigarettes are leading the future when it comes to CBD products. Our hemp smokes can give consumers the same feeling they get when they smoke typical nicotine cigarettes, with many better advantages. Both can induce sleep and relaxation and help calm a smoker down in high-stress situations. However, hemp plants are organic and contain way fewer health threats. CBD smokes off higher bioavailability than other forms of CBD, which means you can feel its effects faster. Smoking hemp means the CBD goes into direct circulation at the same rate as oxygen diffusion in your lungs.
We should mention that there is still a trace of THC in hemp cigarettes, which means that you will most likely fail a drug test if smoking regularly.
