Tobacco smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. It contributes to coronary heart disease as well as diabetes. Because of these alarming facts more and more people are seeking to quit smoking tobacco. Here are just some of the long-term side effects of tobacco smoking:
- Increased risk of cancer
- Elevated risk of stroke
- Chronic bronchitis
- Potential brain damage
- Tooth decay
- Loss of sense of smell, taste, and hearing
But quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do. It is not easy to kick the habit. The withdrawals effects are terrible, like headaches, constipation, and so on. In addition to that, there always the possibility of a relapse.
There is, however, hope for anyone seeking to quit smoking. CBD joints and CBD pre-rolls are the ultimate solutions. What are CBD joints and pre-rolls? How do they facilitate the process of quitting tobacco? Let’s look at these questions in turn.
CBD or cannabidiol is a derivative of the cannabis plant. It is 40% of the cannabis extract. However, unlike THC, which has psychoactive properties, CBD is completely safe. It is so harmless that hemp derived CBD, which has a THC level of 0.3%, is legal all over the country.
CBD is legal and safe and has multiple health benefits. CBD assists the endocannabinoid system (ECS) found in our bodies. The ECS is responsible for managing brain functions and the immune system. CBD interacts with the C1 and C2 receptors of the ECS. This way CBD improves neural functions and the overall immune system.
Here are just a few of the beneficial health effects linked to CBD:
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved heart health
- Appetite suppressant
- Helps manage diabetes
- Pain relief
- Reduction in depression
On its own, therefore, CBD is an excellent supplement. Research is ongoing, but already people have started taking the chemical in hopes of improved health.
One area where CBD becomes a real lifesaver is helping smokers kick the habit. CBD consumption has shown to impact the neurons linked to addiction. It can, in theory, help with substance addiction. Current studies have been conducted on rats, but more potential is there. Hence there is already a growing market for CBD joints and CBD pre-rolls.
CBD joints and CBD pre-rolls:
CBD joints or CBD pre-rolls are basically joints made from the CBD flower. With the growing popularity of CBD, many producers of cannabis have started cultivating special strains of the plant. These strains are high in CBD content, with minimal THC component. This is hugely beneficial because it means that the CBD extracted from such strains will have low THC levels and can be sold anywhere in the country.
CBD flower is a cannabis bud. The buds are high in CBD and low in THC. Dried up CBD flowers can be rolled into a joint to create a CBD cigarette. The joint can then be smoked like a regular tobacco cigarette.
Hemp flower vs. Marijuana flower:
There is a difference between hemp flower and marijuana flower. Both are varieties of the cannabis plant, but marijuana has a higher THC content than hemp. Therefore, hemp flower is used to make CBD joints.
The hemp flower is high in CBD with insignificant amounts of THC. In fact, high-quality CBD joints are made from the full spectrum hemp flower. The joint contains CBD but also trace amounts of THC, terpenes and other compounds. This is much better than isolating CBD because these additional components help strengthen the positive effects of CBD.
So, hemp flower used to make joints is beneficial, and the low THC content makes it legal as well.
CBD joints provide the same health benefits as other products containing CBD. They provide relaxation, ease pain, improve brain functioning, and so one. The only difference is that while a CBD oil or CBD capsule works slowly, a CBD joint produces those same effects instantly.
Smoking CBD is the quickest way of getting CBD into your system. It instantly relaxes the mind. Inhaling CBD is simple and fuss-free. A joint takes less space and is easy to carry than, say, a glass bottle which CBD oils usually come in.
The low cost and ease are what makes CBD joints so popular. What is more, it is the perfect recreational activity, one that isn’t harmful whatsoever.
Like mentioned previously, CBD is an absolute godsend for tobacco smokers. Smoking is an addiction and smokers seek to get their fill of nicotine for the day. Once their body becomes dependent on nicotine, stopping smoking becomes a challenge.
Smokers can go cold turkey. Alternatively, they can get over the addiction by gradually reducing the number of cigarettes smoked daily. There are difficulties in both cases, there is always a possibility of relapse with going cold turkey and even gradually decreasing the nicotine intake, the withdrawal effects are present.
Smoking CBD joints instead of psychologically satisfying the smokers’ need to have a puff now and then. The oral fixation is somewhat satiated without the harmful effects of tobacco wreaking havoc on the body.
CBD pre-rolls also relax and provide a calming sensation. Even though it will not give you a high, CBD does relieve anxiety. Smokers of tobacco give releasing stress or anxiety as one of the main reasons for their habit.
As mentioned previously, CBD does have an addiction to inhibiting qualities. This, again, can help smokers wean off cigarettes easily.
Tobacco smoking has become a huge health issue. FDA has even forced tobacco companies to limit the amount of nicotine present in cigarettes. Considering the devastating health effects, more and more people are seeking to quit smoking.
One thing that seems to help smokers is CBD joints or pre-rolls. Containing hemp flower which is high on CBD levels and low on THC, CBD joints look and feel like the real thing. No, they will not get you high or cause dependency because the THC levels are just too low.
CBD joints are excellent for smokers and generally anyone seeking to benefit from the numerous health benefits of CBD. Smoking joint provides instant results as the inhalation of CBD acts faster than taking it, say, orally. So, picking up the habit of smoking CBD joints is good for you. Go for a joint, and it will only do you good.
