CBD now has been a steady fixture in mainstream America. You can buy the product in retail stores across the United States. CBD kios are now popping up in malls all over the country. With CBD now hitting main street, people are slowly realizing the potential benefits of this cannabidiol.
CBD comes in a variety of different types and forms. You can also use CBD in various methods. We are here to explain to you the difference and why there is a rise in smoking CBD.
CBD is offered in three different types:
Full Spectrum CBD, CBD Isolates and Broad Spectrum CBD. The majority of CBD topicals (creams) you find in a shopping center or mall are CBD Isolates. Isolates contain 99% CBD. These are favored because CBD Isolates do not contain any THC.
If you are purchasing a tincture (sublingual), Full Spectrum CBD is more readily available. Keep in mind that Full Spectrum CBD contains trace amounts of THC. The legal limit is less than 0.3%. This can potentially show up on drug tests.
Broad Spectrum CBD is similar to Full Spectrum but with the THC removed. Since this process is more involved and expensive, it is less readily available on the shelves.
With this in mind, why is there a rise in smoking CBD?
In terms of all the types available, smoking CBD is the fastest and most effective method to take CBD.
All the other methods such as a tincture takes longer to be absorbed and the potency is reduced due to the digestive system. Similar effects could be said for topical creams. CBD creams are focused on only external parts of the body and does not interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Most of the “magic” with CBD is how it interacts with this ECS system. CBD has been shown to help maintain balance and well-being.
People who want the maximum benefits and in the quickest manner gravitate towards smoking CBD. When you smoke CBD, you quickly absorb the cannabidiols in the lungs.
We will now describe the different types of ways to smoke CBD.
CBD Cigarettes / Prerolls:
CBD cigarettes are slowly garnering attention and sales in America. More and more CBD cigarettes are selling at your local smoke shop. Customers are turning to these types of cigarettes as an alternative to traditional cigarettes.
CBD or hemp cigarettes look identical to normal cigarettes. But instead of tobacco, the cigarette is made of 100% hemp. As you know, traditional cigarettes contain a myriad of additional additives besides tobacco. One of the main ingredients that is omitted from CBD cigarettes is nicotine. Nicotine can be a very addictive substance.
Prerolls are very similar to CBD cigarettes but there are a few key differences. First thing is that prerolls look different. Example below.
Prerolls do not contain a filter and look more similar to a joint. If you are looking to smoke CBD, this is one of the strongest methods available. Keep in mind that Prerolls are generally more expensive but do contain more CBD.
Please bear in mind that since this is 100% hemp, the smell is slightly different from normal cigarettes. They do give off a “weed” like odor.
Hemp86 understands that this can be a potential issue for some users. We combated this issue by processing all our hemp with a special filtration method. This helps minimize the harshness and also reduces the smell of hemp. You can enjoy a smoother smoking experience without the judging eyes of the people around you.
There are a variety of benefits with smoking CBD cigarettes. Users want the full benefits of CBD. Nothing is more pure than smoking the actual CBD flower. There is no processing or dilution compared to tinctures or oils. You are receiving the maximum amount of CBD possible.
Besides administering CBD directly into your system, smoking it the second best way. Your lungs have thousands of blood vessels. This can quickly absorb the CBD when you smoke it.
If you are a vaper, you can purchase e-juice with CBD. If you have your own favorite e-juice, you can use CBD additives to add into the juice.
For those who are new to vaping, there are a variety of CBD kits and pens for new starters. They are very easy to use. Similar to the JUUL, you can buy pods and pens that are discrete and require little maintenance.
Vaping can be very intimidating for new users. There is a lot of information. online and can be overwhelming. No fear, we are here to help. There are only three parts to a CBD vaping device that you need to be aware of.
Part 1: The battery
Like your mobile phone or any electrical device, in general you will need to charge your vape pen.
Part 2: The vape pod or coil
These are generally located at the top of the unit where you inhale. The pod or coil will need to be replaced on a regular basis. This can be within a few days or weeks. You will know when to replace the pod or coil whenever the flavor changes.
Part 3: CBD vape juice
This is the fun part. There are a variety of different CBD vape juices on the market. A lot of major vape juice vendors are now adding a CBD line to their range. Some pods are pre-filled with CBD juice while others will need to be filled.
For those used to smoking flowers, you can purchase CBD flowers by the bud and smoke it. There are a variety of different types of flowers depending on your budget and requirement. Just like marijuana, CBD flowers can be grinded up and smoked.
CBD flowers have different strengths and attributes. You can purchase flowers with high amounts of CBD and vice versa.
CBD trim is the excess parts of the hemp plant when they process it. Trims generally have a lower CBD content compared to flowers. But it is usually lower in price. It may contain flowers also as it is generally done by hand. Be mindful that trim can have sticks and stems which can cause the smoking experience to be more harsh than flowers.
The legalization of CBD on a federal level has opened up the market. You can now buy CBD cigarettes in all 50 states. Please keep in mind that you still need to be on or above the legal smoking age.
We recommend you review the Certification of Analysis for the product (COA) to determine the amount of CBD present. This will give you a clear understanding of how much CBD and THC is in the product.
