CBD Cigarettes:  7 benefits from regular use

What are CBD Cigarettes?

While similar in appearance to tobacco cigarettes,  CBD cigarettes are made with 100% hemp rather than tobacco.  As a result, CBD cigarettes do not contain nicotine and are not considered addictive or habit-forming.  CBD cigarettes contain beneficial cannabidiols including not only CBD but also CBG, CBN, and CBC, as well as a negligible (less than 0.3% THC) amount of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid.  Rather than selling packs of CBD cigarettes, many CBD brands like LOOT sell pre-rolls. The pre-rolls are generally larger and more cone-shaped than traditional cigarettes and are filled with premium CBD flower.  However, there is no high associated with CBD, nor will there be a head change like traditional cigarettes.  What you can expect is a calming effect and with regular consumption, many users report relief from pain, anxiety, and improved sleep.

Do hemp cigarettes help with pain?

If you're looking to get high with a CBD cigarette you’re going to be disappointed. Rather, CBD consumed via smoking, oral consumption, or topical application has been consistently reported to help relieve pain.  Pain is one of the main benefits that users report with moderate CBD use.

Do hemp cigarettes do anything?

Hemp-derived CBD is defined as Cannabis sativa L. containing less than 3% THC concentration. You will not get high!  So this begs the question. If hemp or CBD cigarettes don’t make you high like marijuana, then what do they do? Aside from some users describing a pleasant, calming feeling, studies and user data show that CBD provides positive effects towards anxiety relief, as well as contributing to a good night's sleep.

How long does smoking CBD last?

To be clear, smoking CBD cigarettes or pre-rolled joints does not cause the psychoactive high that its THC counterpart does.  As a result, don’t expect a high or head change after smoking CBD. Some users report a calming feeling, but nothing that crosses into the mind-altering or impaired range.  It is believed that CBD can remain in the body for 3-5 days with moderate consumption and as much as 15 days with regular or significant intake. Rather than focusing on how long CBD may or may not last, users tend to focus on the relief they are experiencing and then consume CBD at dosages that achieve their desired results.

Are hemp cigarettes addictive?

Hemp and/or CBD cigarettes do not contain nicotine and contain less than .3%THC.

Can I buy CBD cigarettes?

CBD cigarettes and CBD pre-rolled joints from companies like LOOT are available for purchase at retailers and online.  LOOT ships CBD pre-rolls worldwide, to any state or country in which it is legal to purchase CBD. While traditional CBD Cigarettes are generally made with the leafier CBD shake to achieve a similar burn rate to tobacco, Loot pre-rolled joints are made of premium ground CBD flower for maximum potency, effectiveness, and relief.

Are CBD cigarettes legal?

Yes, most forms of CBD products, including CBD cigarettes and pre-rolls are federally legal based on the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.  This means that as long as the CBD product contains less than 0.3% THC, it is legal to buy and sell. However, it’s always best to confirm the laws in your local state or jurisdiction to make sure.

Can you drive after smoking CBD?

It goes without saying that at no point should you ever drive impaired or under the influence of marijuana, alcohol, pharmaceuticals, or any other mind-altering substance. However, when it comes to smoking CBD cigarettes or CBD pre-rolls, there is less than 3% THC and no high associated due to the lack of THC’s psychoactive effects. Regardless, you should always evaluate your current state before getting behind the wheel.  If by chance you felt inhibited or impaired after smoking a CBD cigarette then by no means should you drive. However, numerous studies and anecdotal evidence from users support that CBD will not impede your ability to drive as CBD consumption has not shown to disrupt cognitive function.

Do hemp cigarettes smell?

Absolutely. Hemp or CBD cigarettes do smell virtually identical to their marijuana counterpart.  Due to the familiar smell, you will turn heads if you light up a CBD cigarette in a public area.  However, the aroma is where the similarities end. CBD cigarettes are nicotine-free and virtually THC free (less than 0.3% THC) so you won’t be experiencing any mind-altering effects or even the head change that nicotine can provide, but you may smell like a stoner. 


Does smoking hemp give you a headache?

There is no concrete evidence that smoking CBD or hemp cigarettes cause headaches. There are reports that the possible side effects of consuming too much CBD may cause appetite changes, diarrhea, weight gain, and tiredness, but nothing directly calling out headaches.

Can you fail a drug test smoking CBD cigarettes?

100% Pure CBD isolate does not contain any THC, which is the cannabinoid that drug tests usually target.  However, CBD cigarettes are not CBD isolate, and therefore do contain a fraction of THC (less than 0.3%) so there is a small chance that smoking CBD cigarettes would show up on a drug test.  As a result, It’s always best to air on the side of caution with CBD and drug tests.
