Ah! the pleasures of puffing on a joint. You can't find anything else like it! There are many ways to enjoy CBD, but one of the most popular is smoking a CBD joint. Learning how to light a joint can be tricky if you've never done it before.
A joint is a hand-rolled cigarette that contains CBD flower instead of tobacco. Lighting a joint may seem straightforward, but some technique is involved to ensure that the joint burns evenly.
Whether you're new to smoking CBD flower or need a refresher, follow these steps, and you'll be an expert in no time! In this article, we'll give you tips on getting your joint lit perfectly every time.
What are CBD joints and where can I buy them?
The cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) is a component of cannabis that is consumed for its therapeutic and sedative effects. CBD joints, called "hemp joints," are made with CBD instead of THC-containing marijuana.
In contrast, the psychoactive component of cannabis is called THC. So, a CBD joint won't get you high, but it will still provide a relaxing, euphoric feeling, including reduced pain and stress.
CBD joints are available at Alive Market! Our pre-rolls are a simple and quick way to enjoy the full-spectrum CBD benefits of hemp flower. They're made from only the highest-quality organic CBD hemp and produced with the finest ingredients, including CBD flower buds that have been freshly crushed and meticulously hand-trimmed.
To ensure the quality and freshness of each CBD joint, they are individually rolled in organic hemp paper and completely sealed. We never settle for trim, shake, or inferior flower.
Guidelines on how to light a joint
First-time users of pre-rolled CBD joints often have concerns about safety and want to know the best way to light a joint. Here are the best practices to light a joint based on these five guidelines.
1. Get a lighter. Any kind of lighter will work, but a butane lighter is best.
2. Place the joint in your mouth. Hold it between your teeth and lips so the tip sticks out.
3. Light the lighter and hold the flame to the end of the joint. Rotate the joint so that the entire tip is lit evenly.
4. Inhale slowly and deeply. Refrain from inhaling too quickly, or you will burn the joint unevenly.
5. Hold the smoke in for a few seconds before exhaling.
How to smoke a CBD pre rolled joint
To those unfamiliar with CBD, the question of how to smoke a pre-rolled CBD joint may arise. If you follow these directions, you'll soon be smoking a CBD joint and feeling its relaxing effects.
1. Choose your joint.
The first step is to choose the right joint for you. If you're a beginner, it's best to start with a small joint. You can always smoke more later if you want to.
2. Grind your CBD flower.
Once you've chosen your joint, it's time to grind your weed. You can use a grinder if you have one or do it by hand. Just make sure the CBD flower is finely ground so that it will burn evenly.
3. Pack your joint.
Once the weed is ground, it's time to pack your joint. You want the joint to be packed evenly so that it burns evenly. Take your time and pack it tightly but not too tightly.
4. Twist the end of the joint.
Once you've packed your joint, it's time to twist the end, so the CBD flower doesn't fall out when you're smoking it. This step is optional, but it's a good idea if you use a small joint or are a beginner.
5. Light your joint and take a drag.
Now it's time to light your joint and take a drag! Put the end of the joint in your mouth and light it with a lighter. Inhale slowly and steadily until the end of the joint turns red.
6. Hold in the smoke and exhale slowly.
Now that you've taken a drag, it's time to hold in the smoke and exhale slowly. Don't hold in the smoke for too long, or you'll start to cough uncontrollably!
7. Repeat as necessary!
Once you've exhaled, feel free to take another drag from your joint and repeat as necessary!
How much of a CBD pre-roll should you smoke?
If this is your first time smoking, you might wonder how much you should smoke at once. Even experienced smokers sometimes wonder if they are smoking too much or too little.
An average Alive Market CBD pre-roll contains around 100mg of CBD. That is a lot of CBD for one serving. In contrast, most CBD gummies and oils contain approximately 20-50mg of CBD each. Smoking CBD provides much more potent effects than ingesting it orally.
You might only need one puff from an Alive Market CBD joint because the concentration of CBD is so high. One-half of an Alive Market CBD pre-roll contains around 50mg of CBD, so some customers divide their pre-roll into two or three smoking sessions.
What does smoking a CBD pre rolled joint taste like?
If you have smoked cannabis, you know it has a distinct flavor. Since CBD flower and THC flower comes from the same plant, they share similar tastes and smells.
However, CBD flower comes from strains that naturally have low THC. CBD pre-rolls can have different flavors depending on what terpenes they contain.
For example, Myrcene, also found in mangoes, has a fruitier flavor, and limonene tastes like lemons. A hemp terpene Beta-caryophyllene is a common terpene in hemp and tastes spicy and peppery.
Each type of CBD-rich hemp has a different combination of more than twelve different types of terpenes. Making each one smell and taste different.
Do CBD pre rolls get you high?
CBD does not make you high. People who smoke CBD report that it has powerful relaxing benefits. Depending on the strain, it might make you feel more like sitting at home or getting up and enjoying the fresh air. People who smoke CBD may have intense effects, but these effects will not change their mental state in a bad way.
CBD joints will not make you feel paranoid or anxious. Inhaling CBD smoke will give you stronger effects than taking CBD in other ways, like tinctures, capsules, edibles, or applying it to your skin.
The effects of smoking an Alive Market CBD joint will also depend on whether your pre-roll contained Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid flower. When you smoke a pre-roll with CBD in it, the effects of the CBD will be stronger than usual.
Most users report that Indica strains provide deep relaxation, Sativa strains provide invigoration, and hybrid strains offer a balanced combination of these effects.
Smoking a CBD pre-roll will make these effects more pronounced if you usually feel relaxed and sleepy after using CBD. You should start feeling the results of your CBD pre-roll within 1-2 minutes; these effects should last for around 60-90 minutes.
