Everything You Need to Know About Hemp Cigarettes

Everything You Need to Know About Hemp Cigarettes

When it comes to the cannabis plant, hemp is the real workhorse. 

Cannabis divides broadly into two types. The marijuana plant is primarily used for human consumption, whether by way of smoking, vaping, edibles, tinctures, or some other form. That’s because of the higher THC content that sets marijuana apart, and the intoxicating effects it has on its users.

Hemp cigarettes are categorized by their extremely low THC content. The hemp plant used contains less than 0.3% THC, meaning it’s non-psychoactive, mostly CBD, and won’t make you high. Instead, hemp has many other medicinal and practical uses in society, from food to body care to medicine.

But did you know that hemp could be purchased in cigarette form? Let’s explore the value of the hemp cigarette.

Why Smoke Hemp?

If, as we discussed above, the hemp plant has a negligible THC content, why would anyone bother to smoke it in the first place? It’s true that you won’t get high, but hemp contains cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound that offers many helpful effects. Users have found success in lowering their anxiety, reducing physical pain, and even treating more serious ailments with the help of CBD.

Additionally, hemp-derived CBD cigarettes are far less damaging to your health than tobacco cigarettes. They don’t contain the addictive chemical nicotine and lack the carcinogenic additives that are so dangerous to tobacco smokers.

Why You Should Get Your Medical Marijuana Card

Veriheal has satisfied millions of patients nationwide by giving them access to these benefits

  • Larger purchase limits
  • Peace of mind
  • Enhanced legal protection
  • Access to higher potency strains
  • Save up to 25% on cannabis purchases
  • Skip the line at the dispensary

For that reason, many cigarette smokers are turning to hemp cigarettes to help them kick the habit. Doing so allows them to continue the habitual behaviors of smoking while at the same time eliminating the toxic and addictive substances from their routine. Switching from tobacco cigarettes to hemp could be the healthiest choice you’ll ever make.

Where to Get Hemp Cigarettes

Unfortunately, some states are in the process of modifying their legal regulations to prohibit the sale of hemp that has been prepared for inhalation. For example, Louisiana House Bill 491, passed in June of 2019, states that “[n]o person shall process or sell [a]ny part of hemp for inhalation.” North Carolina, meanwhile, is still debating whether or not to criminalize smokable hemp.

It is frustrating to see the laws regarding the sale of hemp move backward in this way, even as so many states are making strides forward in terms of legalization when it comes to not only hemp but marijuana as well.

The fact that the laws are a little bit different in every state makes it impossible for any large nationwide providers to sell hemp cigarettes, so the best way to find them is at local dispensaries. Consult the regulations in your state, as this may help you determine whether hemp cigarettes are something available to you. If you’re unsure, visit a CBD dispensary and ask the people who work there. They should be well acquainted with local laws and will be well equipped to answer any questions you may have.

What to Expect

If you acquire hemp cigarettes, you may be wondering what to expect when you smoke them. Because of the very low THC content, you can rest assured that you won’t get high or feel any intoxicating effects. You are likely to notice some other effects, however. Chief among these is relaxation, both physical and emotional. You might also experience intense focus or mild euphoria.

If you want to plan your experience more carefully, first consult with a physician to be sure that these types of products are right for you. You can also visit a dispensary and seek the advice of a budtender. They are likely to have a few different strains to offer and can help you choose the perfect hemp cigarettes for your personal needs.

I have a number of medical/emotional issues that I’ve been dealing with most of my life. I read about the benefits of hemp and decided to give the cigarettes a try as I am a medical cannabis patient for some of these issues. I have to tell you that I am absolutely blown away by the hemp cigarettes. They really help me to relax without the cerebral effects of Cannabis, which I am not always a big fan of all of the time. I happen to be a retired CPA/MBA and former college professor, so I am a highly educated individual. Most of my issues deal with free floating anxiety. I have been able to get through each attack with the help of Cannabis Which my Physician prescribed.
