Hemp cigarettes are one of the most in-demand products in the cannabis market today. Both online and physical retail stores have responded to this demand by keeping CBD cigarettes in stock. With the demand only expected to grow, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to explore this latest trend in the cannabis industry.
What Are Hemp Cigarettes?
Unlike a traditional “joint”, hemp cigarettes or CBD cigarettes are not made with marijuana. Instead, they are made with flower from hemp–a classification of cannabis strains that contain less than 0.3% Δ9-THC
While hemp contains a low concentration of THC, it is rich in other cannabinoids, including Cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is a naturally occurring property in cannabis that is completely non-intoxicating, which means it will not induce mind-altering effects on the user. Instead, research has shown that CBD helps to regulate various functions in the body by interacting with receptors throughout the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
Research and Reports on the Potential Benefits of CBD Cigarettes
Hemp cigarettes, and hemp CBD products, in general, have attracted a lot of attention as a potential source for a range of benefits.
By acting on receptors throughout the ECS, researchers believe that CBD can help improve and maintain various functions of the system including pain perception, memory, mood regulation, stress response, sleep moderation, and more.
Due to its relationship with receptors in the brain, there has been extensive research on CBD as a potential treatment for a range of mental conditions including stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and sleep disorders such as insomnia.
Will Hemp Cigarettes Get You High?
This is one of the most common questions people have when it comes to trying hemp cigarettes for the first time.
Since hemp cigarettes do not contain THC–the cannabinoid primarily responsible for cannabis’ psychotropic properties–hemp cigarettes will not get you high.
However, it is important to only purchase from trustworthy and reputable retailers in order to avoid purchasing a poorly regulated “hemp cigarette” that contains more than 0.3% Δ9-THC content.
In addition, you should always check a product’s lab report in order to confirm that it contains less than 0.3% Δ9-THC and won’t get you high.
At Timbr Organics, all of our products are rigorously tested by a third-party facility, and lab results for each of our products can be easily accessed on our Lab Reports page.
Are Hemp Cigarettes Legal in the United States?
CBD and all naturally occurring cannabinoids once appeared on the controlled substance list of the United States government.
However, the Senate removed all CBD products from this list in 2018 in a piece of legislation known as the Farm Bill.
Since that time, hemp flower containing CBD has been legal to purchase in all 50 states.
To earn classification as legal, hemp cigarettes cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC.
Be sure to check laws in your state since some states require people to have a doctor’s prescription to purchase hemp cigarettes.
Are Hemp Cigarettes Bad for You?
Many people first become interested in CBD for health benefits. They also want to know about any potential negative effects from smoking hemp and whether it is comparable to smoking tobacco or marijuana cigarettes.
It’s important to understand that smoking anything is inherently harmful.
This is especially true if you become a heavy smoker. We recommend checking with your regular doctor before using any type of hemp or CBD product. The smoke produced by a hemp cigarette is similar to that of a marijuana cigarette. That means the lining of your lungs can sustain damage over time.
Some research studies indicate that smoking cannabis is less of a health risk than smoking tobacco. Although cannabis can cause lung damage, there has not yet been a positive link between using it and developing lung cancer or colorectal cancer. One of the most surprising findings with these studies is that cannabis can actually help fight some types of cancer.
Will Hemp Cigarettes Cause You to Fail a Drug Test?
Like the previous question “Will Hemp Cigarettes Get You High?” this is also a very common question amongst those who are considering giving hemp cigarettes a try.
Drug tests are designed to detect illegal substances such as cocaine, methamphetamines, or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While hemp cigarettes do contain CBD and other cannabinoids, they do not contain THC; and therefore, should not cause you to fail a drug test.
However, it is very important to only purchase from reputable sellers in order to avoid purchasing a poorly regulated product that contains more than 0.3% Δ9-THC.

Before trying CBD or hemp flower products, it is strongly advised to conduct your own research and consult with a licensed doctor. While the World Health Organization considers cannabidiol to be “generally well tolerated with a good safely profile,” more research is needed to properly evaluate the safety and efficacy of CBD for general use.
