Are you interested in utilizing the benefits of CBD but miss smoking cannabis, or even cigarettes? You still can! CBD Flower is able to be rolled into a joint and smoked, creating the placebo effect of smoking.
Will I become intoxicated from smoking CBD?
As it stands now, there is limited research on the topic. However, from what we do know about the consumption of CBD through smoking the flower, no, you will not become intoxicated. Though, you will not get ‘high’ you will be able to enjoy the benefits such as:
• Reduced stress
• Help with pain management
These are just a few of a long list of the benefits (Pif, 2020).
Can Smoking CBD Flower have a Placebo Effect?
The short answer to this is, yes. As mentioned earlier, there can be a placebo effect from smoking CBD flower. A 2013 study highlights that CBD has a large impact on the body when cutting out nicotine (Morgan et al., 2013). The patients that were treated by using CBD as a method to quit smoking, decreased their cigarette consumption by 40% (Morgan et al., 2013). Therefore, if you are in the process of quitting smoking cigarettes CBD is a great alternative and will actively promote the benefits previously listed.
Bioavailability and Smoking CBD Flower?
Bioavailability is a technical term that simply means “the extent to which a nutrient or Medication can be used by the body” (Dictonary.com, 2002). The higher the bioavailability in a CBD product means that the body is able to absorb it more efficiently and the benefits are more prominent (Weedmaps, 2020). It has been found that when smoking CBD flower the bioavailability is higher (Huestis, 2007). This is due to the way the body is able to absorb the CBD into the bloodstream and quickly run its course through the body (Huestis, 2007).
Why Smoke CBD Flower?
When smoking CBD Flower the smoke is able to go directly into the bloodstream (Huestis, 2007) and from there the benefits can be felt much more quickly when compared to ingesting it via oil or gummy. Smoking CBD flower also gives the consumer an excuse to take a personal minute to smoke while decompressing. This is another layer of added relaxation from CBD simply by having a different mindset on how it will be utilized.
