Did you know that pre-rolled CBD joints are on sale in the UK?
That’s right, you can legally buy joints filled with nothing but CBD-rich cannabis (legally known as hemp as it has low levels of THC).
But what are CBD pre-rolled joints and where can you buy them?
What are CBD pre-rolls?
A CBD pre-roll is simply a joint (a long, cigarette-like roll-up that is used to smoke cannabis) that’s been already rolled and filled with CBD flower (CBD-rich hemp flower grown legally under licence with low levels of THC).
These ready-to-smoke hemp joints are the latest innovation in the world of CBD. In fact, the use of CBD flower is itself a pretty new phenomenon, only becoming popular during the last 12 months.
The popularity of CBD flower follows the huge recent surge in demand for all CBD products, most notably CBD oil.
CBD flower may be superior to many more common CBD products, however. This is because hemp flower is raw and unprocessed, therefore containing a full profile of cannabinoids (not just CBD), terpenes (responsible for the smell of plant), and loads of other beneficial plant compounds.
Benefits of CBD pre-rolls
Accessible to all
Pre-rolled CBD joints make CBD flower a lot more accessible and less intimidating. After all, not everyone who wants to smoke CBD flower is a seasoned stoner with expert rolling skills.
Rather, from what I’m seeing, the interest in CBD flower is far from limited to people who already have experience with cannabis.
In my opinion, CBD flower is the most effective hemp-derived product I have come across. Therefore, it’s no surprise that it’s proving popular with people who wouldn’t traditionally be associated with cannabis use.
Not only that, but you can also buy CBD pre-rolls online and have them delivered to your door. All you need to do then is spark it up and puff away.
Not everyone enjoys the ‘high’ associated with THC consumption. But these people can still benefit from cannabis with CBD flower as it has negligible levels of THC>
When you smoke CBD-rich hemp, the CBD is absorbed almost immediately via the lungs into the bloodstream. This makes it one of the quickest-acting methods of consuming CBD.
By its very nature – raw and unprocessed – hemp bud offers a full-spectrum of cannabinoids (including small amounts of THC and many other minor cannabinoids), terpenes, flavonoids, and other beneficial plant compounds.
As mentioned above, the hemp used in CBD roll-ups is 100% natural. The only processes it goes through prior to being rolled up in a joint is trimming and drying.
Anxiety and stress
CBD has been found to be effective and reliable at reducing anxiety and stress. CBD pre-rolls are, therefore, a good option for people who suffer from chronic stress or anxiety.
CBD has also been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory.
I used CBD flower myself to quit smoking tobacco and I feel it helped me tremendously. Because of this, I believe that CBD pre-rolls may be most beneficial to smokers looking to kick the habit.
Not only does the pre-roll replace conveniently replace the cigarette, but CBD has also been found to help the brain to get over an addiction.
This 2013 study found that smokers reduced the number of cigarettes the smoked in a week by consuming CBD, while a more recent study suggests that CBD can affect the attention bias of the brain and reduce cravings.
CBD pre-rolls are also use to people who want to cut down on their THC intake or even those who want to use cannabis but don’t enjoy the psychoactivity of THC.
