The cannabis market has been getting more crowded in recent years with a lot of CBD and hemp products. Since it has many medicinal qualities, the only confusion among the people is about the mode of consumption. CBD is available in many forms like pills, oils and also in the form of topical creams and lotions. Smoking CBD infused cigarettes or dried hemp flowers is also an effective mode of infusing it into the bloodstreams. Since smoking CBD has a lot of similarities to smoking weed and nicotine, many people are still hesitant to try such mode because they don’t know whether it is safe or not.
Is CBD Smoking Safe
It is evident that smoking nicotine or weed will cause many ill effects on the user. It will not only offer a high but can also lead to addiction. The researches about smoking CBD is still progressing. From the available reports, it is evident that CBD smoking products will not be having any trace of nicotine, therefore it will not cause addiction to the users. Currently, there is no evidence about the long term effect of CBD smoking.
Does It Get You High
CBD smoke products are made from dried hemp flowers and not from the cannabis flower. This will reduce the risk of getting high because THC or the element that offers a high effect on the users of cannabis is only 0.3 percentage in the hemp plant. Moreover, the absence of a large concentration of THC will also help in improving the mental health of the user.
Smoking Increases Bioavailability
CBD smoking products has a high bioavailability compared to other CBD products because it will reach the bloodstreams directly through the lungs. Other products like CBD edibles and topical creams are also effective but they will have to surpass the digestion process or the protective layer of skin to reach the bloodstreams. Hence it will reduce bioavailability. Even though smoking CBD can reach the systems faster, it will not stay in the system for a long period.
If a person is still hesitant to smoke in CBD and does not like to consume it orally, another option available to them is vaping. Vaping is similar to smoking because it is a method of inhaling CBD in vapor form. It is better than smoking because the products used for vaping is more purified and it will not harm the lungs of the user.
