CBD smoking, is it harmful?
Products containing CBD are on the rise on the market. Cannabidiol, extracted from the hemp plant, has amazing effects on humans and animals that can enhance daily well-being.
The miracle drug from nature is predominantly offered as CBD oil, which is used orally as a dietary supplement. But also as a healing oil, which is applied to the skin, CBD oil can develop its effect.
Some users consume cannabidiol in a different way, smoking the dried CBD to get a relaxing effect like from a traditional joint. But what are the risks of smoking CBD?
CBD, the legal alternative to smoking pot?
Cannabis joints containing THC are still illegal in large parts of the Federal Republic of Germany. Even if the health benefits of cannabis are undisputed, the legal situation in Germany is not.
CBD on the other hand, which has no psychoactive effect, can be legally purchased in Germany. Not only CBD oil, but also flowers that contain CBD, but no THC, are offered for sale on the Internet, but also at stationary retailers.
In fact, for some who want to legally „smoke weed“ CBD can be an alternative, which also achieves a relaxing and calming effect.
Which CBD products can be smoked?
The market offers a variety of CBD products that can be consumed in different ways. Under no circumstances should CBD oil be smoked, as the oil may contain ingredients that can have a carcinogenic effect when heated.
CBD powders and teas are also not suitable for smoking. Who wants to smoke CBD, should use pure flowers and mix them with some tobacco. The legal smoke enjoyment then unfolds through a pleasant aroma.
Is it safe to smoke CBD?
Smoking is never harmless. Those who roll a joint with CBD, and of course use tobacco to do so, also inhale the dangerous substances of tobacco when smoking.
The natural CBD products contain a small amount of psychoactive THC and therefore should not be consumed if you want to drive a vehicle later on.
Even those who smoke a few CBD joints and are stopped by the police could possibly face charges, as the amount of THC in the blood is detectable.
Even though CBD is not currently covered by narcotics laws, you could still get into trouble after consuming CBD joints.
Smoking always brings health risks
A cigarette, even if it contains legal CBD, always poses a health risk. By burning the flowers in combination with tobacco, the body absorbs substances that can be an oncological burden for the body.
In addition, flowers that are of poor quality may also be contaminated with pollutants.
Those who choose to smoke CBD flowers should make sure that the flowers are of a high quality in order to cause as little harm to the body as possible.
Smoking CBD with the vaporizer
In medicine, CBD has been found to have an analgesic effect on humans.
Patients with severe and acute pain may find it helpful to consume CBD flowers with a vaporizer.
Here, you do not add nicotine-containing tobacco and can thus keep the health risk low.
Vaporizing the flowers allows CBD to quickly enter the body and quickly achieve an analgesic effect.
This is perhaps the best way to get the health benefits of CBD.
