While you might think of smoking as being a consumption method reserved for tobacco or cannabis cigarettes, smokable CBD is also available.
By smoking hemp buds instead of cannabis buds, you are able to smoke CBD without any of the effects of THC, since industrial hemp typically contains less than 0.3% THC.
What are the benefits of smoking CBD?
Smoking CBD comes with many benefits. We’ve rounded up all the reasons why you might want to give smokable CBD a try.
It won’t get you high
One reason why many people are drawn to smoking CBD over cannabis with THC is that it can’t get you high. While CBD is an active compound found in cannabis, it isn’t responsible for the psychotropic effects of the plant; THC is.
Smoking CBD alone could therefore be an appealing option for those wanting to avoid the intoxicating effects of cannabis, those wanting to experience the effects of CBD alone, or those who are intimidated by the effects and legality of THC.
Another benefit of smoking CBD is that it is legal in most states. Provided your CBD hemp buds contain less than 0.3% THC and meet other guidelines, you can happily smoke CBD without breaking any laws.
Has a high bioavailability
As well as being non-intoxicating and legal, smoking is also an effective way to deliver CBD into your bloodstream, where it then induces its effects on your body.
Bioavailability refers to the percentage of a substance that actually reaches your bloodstream, and smoking performs well for its bioavailability. Smoking cannabinoids has been found to deliver an average bioavailability of 30%, which is an impressive number, especially when compared to some other consumption methods (1).
