CBD products come in so many different forms these days from topicals to gummies, tinctures, roll-ons, drinks, and more. Despite all of these products available everywhere from your local smoke shop to gas station, sometimes nothing beats smoking CBD flower. The issue is that you can’t always find the same quality flower or pre-rolls at your nearest shops. Many people trying to quit tobacco are looking for reliable CBD flower to smoke and wondering if it’s as harmful to their lungs. Respect My Region’s CBD pre-rolls come with all-natural, pesticide-free Wisconsin-grown hemp flower that’s rich in phytocannabinoids and tastes hoppy and sweet.
Because both involve carcinogens (aka fire,) smoking tobacco and CBD flower are both obviously damaging to your lungs. The main difference is that cigarettes come with a mountain of chemicals and additives while good CBD flower is just that—pure flower. Even additive-free tobacco still contains nicotine, which is highly addictive. But, smoking CBD flower might still be an unpleasant experience.
The reason that smoking CBD flower might be harsh is that it’s either not cured properly, is old, low potency, or just has weak genetics. When you smoke it, it may have a weird taste, make you cough excessively, or give you a headache. Smoking clean, tested, and high CBD hemp flower will be smooth, and may quickly produce anti-inflammatory effects. High-quality CBD flower should smoke with a similar smoothness to top-shelf cannabis flower.
The Effects of Smoking CBD
Smoking CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce varying effects. Our bodies consist of two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 & CB2, that are found in the central nervous system, immune system, and peripheral nervous system. CB1 is largely responsible for all of the psychoactive effects that THC provides, while CB2 handles all of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD. By interacting with these receptors, cannabinoids may produce a wealth of healing effects.
Tobacco vs. CBD Hemp
It’s common knowledge that nicotine is addictive, cigarettes are full of chemicals, and that smoke is bad for your lungs. But, what effects do smoking tobacco really produce? It may create a calming, anxiety-relieving effect both mentally and physically for a period. But it doesn’t seem to help with pain management or more serious conditions such as epilepsy and certainly not cancer.
CBD has shown signs of being helpful for serious conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s, and doesn’t contain any chemicals if it’s grown right. Smoking CBD is harmful from the standpoint of inhaling carcinogens but consumed in any form outweighs any benefits tobacco or nicotine provide. Current studies, albeit still in its early stages, also suggest that CBD is non-addictive.
Our all-natural CBD pre-rolls come from Wisconsin-grown hemp flower that’s rich in phytocannabinoids and tested rigorously throughout production. Each tube comes with two high CBD pre-rolls that contain .7 grams of flower with up to 15% CBD. These are the kinds of pre-rolls that you can smoke at any time of the day to potentially find relief.
CBD Gummies & Tinctures
If you’re worried about the effects of smoking CBD, Respect My Region has several full-spectrum products worth trying. Since our CBD tinctures are taken sublingually (under the tongue,) the effects might be felt almost as quickly as smoking one of our pre-rolls. They also come in three different moods to Refresh, Boost, or Chill out your day.
For more lasting effects, our vegan, gluten-free CBD gummies might deliver the relief you need—and they actually taste good. You don’t need to smoke CBD to get a potent, full-spectrum experience that will encourage the entourage effect. We like to make sure our customers have easy access to the best full-spectrum CBD products they can find in the United States.
