Nowadays, there are hemp cigarettes for sale everywhere around the U.S., and you might be asking yourself, are these products safe and legal? Why are people smoking these? Yes, they are legal in the U.S., but they can be bought only by people over 18 or 21 years of age, depending on the state. Many tobacco consumers are smoking hemp cigs and hemp cigarette tubes as an alternative to traditional cigarettes, as they don’t contain tobacco or nicotine. However, the risks associated with inhaling carbon monoxide and other chemicals are still there. Keep reading to understand why everyone is talking about this new hemp trend.
Where can I find hemp cigarettes for sale?
As they are legal in the U.S., you can find hemp cigarettes for sale online or at your local dispensary. Pay extra attention when purchasing these online as you would when you are buying any CBD product. It is also crucial to make sure you purchase organic hemp cigarettes that are locally harvested to avoid inhaling any unwanted chemicals used in the hemp plant. Most of the reputable brands will have laboratory test results available on their websites, so keep an eye out for those.
Out of the U.S., hemp cigs may or may not be legal, depending on the laws for cannabis in your country. In some places, CBD and hemp are legal, but only for medical use, so you may face some significant bureaucracies when trying to purchase such products.

Are hemp cigarettes safe?
The answer to this matter is not simple. The short answer should be that no, these products are not safe. When smoking a hemp cig, you’ll be exposed to chemicals such as hemp smoke and carbon monoxide, known to the State of California to cause reproductive harm and cancer. But hemp cigs are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes and electronic cigarettes. Currently, in the U.S., there’s an outbreak of severe lung diseases associated with vaping products or electronic cigarettes. Many teenagers are using these gadgets to inhale nicotine and THC, leaving the health authorities in an alert state.
Although this product cannot be used to treat addiction to nicotine, many users are smoking these to wean off cigarettes. Without nicotine, the hemp smokes will less likely cause addiction and can also briefly give the user the benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. They also contain no THC, so one can smoke this and enjoy the effects of CBD without the risk of getting high.
So why are people using hemp cigs to quit smoking?
Some of the most commonly known withdrawal symptoms when one tries to stop smoking nicotine (whether they smoke traditional cigarettes or vape nicotine) include anxiety, insomnia, depression, headaches, and nausea. Although researchers say that more evidence is needed, many believe that CBD may be an alternative to treat those same ailments.
By trial and error, many people who are trying to smoke less or stop smoking are turning to hemp cigs and finding relief to their withdrawal symptoms because of the CBD effects. Although some people have mentioned feeling a smell somewhat similar to marijuana’s, most reviewers of these cigarettes are satisfied with the overall body relaxation they reported after smoking it. This is not a smoke-free alternative, as one would still be exposed to the risks of carbon monoxide and other chemicals.
What about organic hemp cigarette tubes?
Cigarette tubes made from hemp can be used to roll any type of cigarette one wants to smoke, such as tobacco, hemp flowers, or marijuana flowers with THC. The advantages many users see in the use of hemp cigarette tubes include the slow-burning paper and the biodegradable filter that is environmentally friendly. It’s a known fact that traditional cigarette butts leach toxins into the environment and can take up to ten years to dissolve.
Now that you understand more about hemp smokes and hemp cigarette tubes, you can make your decision about quitting smoking nicotine or switching to a less harmful alternative. Please be mindful that we do not condone or suggest smoking in any way. Make sure to consult with your physician if you are planning to quit smoking and don’t know where to begin.
