CBD joints have been gaining a lot of popularity in the past year. This is likely because they are the perfect mix of both pre-rolled joints, and vape pens. Also, if you’re into CBD joints then it is one of the best ways to get what you need when on-the-go, which can be especially helpful for those who struggle with anxiety or PTSD.
What are CBD Joints?
CBD joints use both traditional rolling papers as well as hemp papers (it’s more sustainable). The wax inside uses either marijuana flowers or hemp flowers (you can even choose which strain) and a cannabis extract (with either THC or just CBD). Most CBD joints will have both cannabis extracts and hemp extract. The hemp extract makes a smoother joint that lasts longer, but if you have high tolerance or need a stronger hit then Cannabis Extract is a good option.
CBD joints are different than traditional pre-rolled joints, in that they will not get you high. Instead these offer instantaneous relief from anxiety, ADHD, chronic pains and more. Plus, unlike traditional cannabis leaves the hemp papers won’t get you high (and they are even safer when compared to traditional pre-rolled joints).
How do they work?
The CBD cannabis extract inside the joint causes mental relaxation and relieves tension & stress at the same time. This is why these are so popular for those who struggle with anxiety or PTSD.
While the hemp extracts offer relief from cancer, chronic pains and ADHD. Plus, hemp extract doesn’t get you high. Instead the CBD extracts deliver a natural high through CBD which contains many different compounds like cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN) and cannabigerol (CBG). While THC is known for getting high by activating your CB1 receptors, CBD won’t get you high but it does offer many benefits.
The only chemicals used in the making of traditional pre-rolled joints are often pesticides and residual solvents. While most CBD extracts use only organic solvents like coconut oil. The traditional pre-rolls are also made with a lot of tobacco and are known to be highly processed and can be harmful both physically and psychologically.
So why not just smoke CBD flower?
Because it is still illegal in many states, which might make some people hesitant. Plus, the legal status of CBD flower varies from state to state. In some states, you can’t even have a CBD flower for sale. And in others, you can’t purchase it over the counter at a local shop (unless you have a medical card or physician prescription). This means that CBD flowers can only be purchased from third party shops from other states or directly from manufacturers overseas such as Bluebird Botanicals.
