These products aren’t the most popular form of CBD delivery, but they do serve consumers looking for a joint-like smoke.

Joints, hand or machine-rolled cannabis cigarettes, are a wide part of both marijuana and broad culture. While cannabis joints are commonly consumed for their psychoactive effects, but a different type of cannabis joint provides the curative benefits of CBD without the THC high also exists.

Known as CBD or hemp joints, and sometimes called cigarettes (although they don’t contain tobacco), these products aren’t the most popular form of CBD delivery, but they do serve consumers looking for a joint-like smoke.

It’s going to smell like weed because it’s the same plant.

Hemp is cannabis sativa, as is the THC-containing marijuana. Varieties that have been cultivated to produce CBD-heavy buds that do not contain enough THC to produce an effect can be considered legal hemp. CBD smokes won’t get anyone high, but might garner some inquisitive sniffs and raised eyebrows in public.

CBD cigarettes are (usually) legal.

CBD joints filled with non-psychoactive hemp, are legal so long as the herb contained within meets the federal guidelines, primarily that it contains less than the 0.03% THC threshold.

Cannabis Cigarettes

Hemp joints provide the same healing benefits as CBD.

Cigarettes made out of CBD-dominant cannabis provide the same functionality as other CBD preparations, such as pills, edibles, topicals, tinctures, and concentrates, although it might be one of the least efficient delivery methods, as is the case with THC.

Smoke from hemp cigarettes is not healthy.

Smoke from burning plant matter, including cannabis, contains carcinogens, although the risk of cancer from smoking a CBD joint is the same as that of a THC-containing cannabis joint.

The health and wellbeing qualities of CBD makes it worthy of a spot in the rotation.

An occasional hemp joint full of CBD can provide a relaxing, pleasurable pause on life, especially when pain and inflammation relief is more pressing than a head buzz.

A hemp joint might not be for everyone, but pre-rolls with CBD-heavy legal buds are part of the varied cannabis market and available for the sore, sleepless or anxious tokers not looking to get high.
