Non-psychoactive, full of flavor, non-addictive – we are big fans of hemp smokes. A CBD cigarette presents an opportunity to participate in a ritual without the side effects presented by tobacco or marijuana.
Although we’ve extolled the virtues of hemp cigarettes many times over, let’s focus on the three big ones mentioned above. Each is a benefit for which we’re grateful because they simply allow us to enjoy a smoke without the “extras.”
No high in hemp
Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the legalization of industrial hemp in the U.S., the number of ways you can consume hemp-based CBD and experience its benefits has increased tenfold – including smoking pure hemp flower.
So how is smoking a CBD cigarette or a CBD pre-roll different than smoking a joint? There are no psychoactive effects. CBD is naturally very high with the hemp flower, while THC is naturally very, very low – and since THC is the catalyst for a marijuana “high” – the same effect isn’t possible with hemp cigarettes or other smokable hemp flower products.
Bring on the flavor
When consumed in its purest form, the hemp flower packs a flavorful punch. Why? The almighty terpenes. Terpenes are the aromatic compounds in CBD Hemp Flower responsible for its characteristic aroma and flavor profiles. Think of them like the hops in beer.
Terpenes do more than tease the nose and taste buds; they are also purported to enhance the effects of CBD. This is the elusive “entourage effect,” which happens when all the compounds in a hemp-derived product work together with the body’s systems and bring more comprehensive benefits.
Some hemp cigarette brands spray their flowers with terpenes in an attempt to enhance flavor and effect. Not Redwood Reserves. We carefully grow our and cure our CBD flowers to preserve the naturally occurring terpenes that pack true flavor.
Smoke without remorse
Tobacco cigarettes contain nicotine, which is one of the most addictive substances out there. Every time you smoke a tobacco cigarette, you’re feeding that little nicotine demon and perpetuating the cravings. It’s the main reason quitting tobacco cigarettes can be so difficult.
CBD cigarettes have zero nicotine. In fact, a pure filtered hemp cigarette should have nothing but what the flower provides, i.e., no additives, no preservatives, no addictive chemicals – just pure hemp flower that leaves your mind and lungs clear to get on with their normal functioning.
But wait – there’s more.
Although we’ve already covered 3 of the reasons CBD cigarettes are superior to other cigarettes, there are other benefits worth mentioning. First, the chill. Smoking hemp flower provides the fastest delivery of cannabinoids to the system, so the CBD effects of calm and relaxing occur much faster than other CBD consumption forms.
Secondly, CBD cigarettes have been shown to help folks kick the nicotine cigarette habit. A quality hemp cigarette (like ours) will look and feel like a real cigarette. They’re discreet while still providing that hand-to-mouth habit smoking perpetuates. We actually go into quite a bit of detail on how CBD cigarettes can help you quit tobacco cigarettes in this blog post if you want to learn more.
Our desire to enjoy quality hemp cigarettes led us to create Redwood Reserves. We focus solely on the taste and CBD content of the flower used in all of our products, so you can truly enjoy a top-quality, craft CBD experience.
