It won’t be surprising to know that a lot of people have come in contact with at least a product made from Cannabidiol (CBD) however, it is a bit surprising that a large percentage of people (mind you it is still growing) have ingested at least one product made from CBD be it the CBD gummies, vape, or pre-roll joint. This is surprising because only a few years back, the CBD industry had not taken off and only a few people had an idea of what it is and what benefit was hidden in this rough diamond called CBD flower.
Why should I consider smoking CBD?
The sudden rise to recognition of CBD is attributable to the large amounts churned out by various CBD companies for research to be carried out and the awareness these companies where able to create. These companies have been able to create different methods and products for the easy use of CBD by different users, some of which include the creation of CBD capsules, CBD gummies, CBD oil and butter, CBD vape oil and CBD pre-roll joint, to mention a few. CBD has grown in popularity and stature to the extent that the various companies have started competing to be the company with the best CBD treats for pets, which tell a lot of how far the CBD industry has come. With this said, it is appropriate to bring to your knowledge that one of the most effective ways to get the most out of using CBD is through smoking. However, many people are of the opinion that smokers are liable to die young. This opinion doesn’t have a strong bind on the use of CBD through smoking and this article sets out to enlighten you about how beneficial it is to smoke CBD rather than use other means of taking CBD into the body system.
Why smoking is the best?
One of the main reasons smoking of CBD is the best method of introducing CBD into the body is because it helps the body easily and quickly feel and enjoy the benefit of CBD. Before the end of this article, we would point out some of the benefits that come with ingesting CBD. When you smoke CBD, the CBD travels into the lung, which automatically after reaching the lung travels to the heart, where it mixes with the blood and it is transported to the various part of the body within a short period, like the other methods of taking CBD. Almost all other forms of introduction have a delay period where they either have to be digested of, absorbed into the body, before they are transported into the blood stream and body system. Other reasons to consider smoking CBD include the following;
- It is non-intoxicating
- It helps in quitting smoking cigars and other nicotine products for addicts
- It is more affordable than other products
- It is a bronchodilator, i.e. it helps open up the airways, thus improving the airflow in and out of the body and this leads to an improvement of oxygen in the blood.
The above reasons and so much more, are some of the reasons why introducing CBD into the body is best done through smoking.
How does smoking CBD flower make you feel?
According to one of the founders of Kannaswiss, Serra Di Cassano during an interview with Reuters claimed that CBD makes “YOU FEEL LIKE YOU SHOULD BE HIGH, BECAUSE YOU HAVE A BODY HIGH, BUT YOUR MIND IS COMPLETELY CLEAR”. Unlike what other people would claim smoking, CBD would not get you intoxicated, as it doesn’t qualify as a proactive substance according to the definition of a proactive substance, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). With that out of the way, you should know that the way you would feel depends on the kind of CBD strain you would be consuming. Some of the strains would put you in a relaxed state, some would give you that energetic, up-tempo mood, while others would leave you in a euphoric mood, ready to be the life of the party. How you would feel when you smoke depends majorly on the type of strain you consume, although there are some other factors that come into play when consumed. Other factors include
- Your body system
- The medication you are on
- The quality of the CBD product etc.
Benefits of CBD
Like I said above, I would give you a quick rundown of some of the benefits that accompanies the use of any CBD product. Here are a few benefits of CBD, which we would expand on in subsequent articles
- CBD is Useful when battling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and the likes
- A useful in treating neurological disorder like epilepsy and multiple Sclerosis
- CBD acts as a Vasodilator, and, as such, helps reduce the risk of suffering from stroke, heart attack, hypertension, and many other heart conditions.
- CBD is useful when it is included in the chemotherapy and radiotherapy of a cancer patient, as it helps ease the pain.
Is smoking CBD legal?
This is a question that pops up every now and then when people talk about CBD with someone who is just hearing about CBD for the first few times. If you are one of such people, then it would excite you that CBD has become legal in many states if you stay in the United States of America and also in many countries around the world. The only part that might not excite you is the part where you have to ensure that the THC level aligns with the regulation placed in the state or country you reside. THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol and is the component that is responsible for the intoxication when consuming raw cannabis. However, most state and countries have set the level of THC to 0.3%. Therefore, if the THC level is 0.3%, then it is legal.
No matter the method you have chosen as your preferred way of administering CBD into your body, you would still enjoy the benefits that come with taking CBD. All you have to do is ensure that you purchase and use only high-quality CBD pre-rolls, gummies, vape oil and other products made from CBD.
