While the whole CBD craze has definitely died down a bit since its first surge of popularity, the cannabinoid is still seeing high demand, and more strains that focus on high CBD% are appearing to cater to it. But what makes this cannabinoid so popular in the first place, and why is it still relevant to smokers worldwide? To answer this question, we’ve listed some benefits that smoking CBD does to the body, as well as some other advantages of getting your CBD dose exclusively from hemp.

It Provides a Relaxing Feeling

Just wait a few minutes after smoking your first roll of CBD hemp, and you’ll immediately start to feel its effects. CBD is most famous for its calming and soothing effect on users, which can help out a lot when you get stressed out from your day at work. Note that this is different from getting a high out of THC, though, as it’s not strong enough to get you couch-ridden.

It’s Anti-inflammatory and has Medicinal Properties

CBD isn’t just used for getting a good night’s rest, though. The craze behind CBD lies in its medicinal benefits, particularly in its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also used to treat a wide variety of disorders and illnesses.

For example, studies on CBD have shown that it can relieve pain. So if you’re suffering from a simple headache, smoking some CBD-rich hemp can help clear your head. Other than pain relief, there’s also research that points to CBD having the ability to reduce acne. You’re also less likely to suffer from heart-related disorders and even cancer, according to certain studies. Finally, CBD’s known to lower one’s blood pressure, giving more options for those who suffer from it.

It’s important to note that none of this is an exact science, though. CBD may be a popular cannabinoid, but it still doesn’t have a lot of research put into it, due to the complications surrounding the legality of cannabis in general. These studies may point to all these benefits, but they aren’t certain, so keep that in mind. At the very least, you can smoke with a little peace of mind knowing that CBD has some benefits to it.

It Can Help with Anxiety, Depression, and Addiction

One other known use of smoking CBD hemp is that it helps cope with mental and psychological issues such as depression and anxiety. While this may not work for everyone out there, users with these disorders have reported its positive effects, which may warrant a try if you’re going through something similar. Even addiction (particularly nicotine) can be mitigated, as hemp rolls provide a healthier substitute to cigarettes.

What makes this even better is that currently, most anti-depressants are either heavy on the side-effects or have the possibility of leading the user into substance abuse. CBD oil has shown signs of being a good substitute for popular drugs on the market for curing depression. And with hemp strains being so high in CBD, smoking some of it should be just as good as ingesting the oil variant.

Now, let’s look at what CBD hemp, in particular, has over other CBD sources in the cannabis family.

It’s Relatively Cheaper

Marijuana is a pretty expensive plant, and if you’re buying it just for the CBD, it’s just not worth it, even though some strains sport high CBD% in dry weight. Fortunately, users can get their fix of CBD without having to buy themselves some kush. Hemp offers relatively high doses of CBD that rival even the strongest marijuana strains, and with a lower price tag, it can be a clear winner in some situations.

Getting CBD Through Hemp is Legal and not Intoxicating

One of the benefits that hemp has over marijuana is its legality and the fact that it isn’t federally illegal, unlike its THC-high counterpart. For those who aren’t familiar with federal legality, here’s a quick rundown - while individual states can consider certain things legal (in this case, cannabis), on a federal level, they can still be illegal. This means that it’s only a matter of time before the state starts to enforce banning or restricting cannabis usage unless certain laws are passed to prevent it from happening. So even if your state legalizes marijuana, it’s always the safer option to smoke hemp instead.

What’s more, is that you won’t have to worry about getting too high out of smoking it, so you can work on some projects or activities right after a good smoke. There’s no need to keep yourself tied to your apartment or house for the rest of the day. 

Marijuana will still have a place in the cannabis community for many different reasons, but that doesn’t mean hemp is the inferior second choice either. It’s got advantages over marijuana in different ways, and it’s worth considering the next time you make a purchase.
