This week I tried CBD Cigarettes from American Shaman, a CBD company that’s spreading the word about the benefits of CBD. These hemp-based cigarettes offer a different kind of smoke break.
The hemp-based cigarettes come in packs of 20. There are four different flavor options to choose from: original, grape, cherry, and menthol. They are 100% tobacco and nicotine free, and every pack comes with a QR code on it so you can scan it and immediately pull up the pact’s test results.
The CBD cigarettes come packed with cannabinoids. Each pack contains 40 mg of CBD, 16 mg of cannabigerol (CBG) and 2 mg of cannabichromene (CBC) per unit, according to the company.
A distinguishing factor about this company is that they have a Compassionate Care financial assistance program to help veterans and those who are low-income. If you fall into any of those categories, simply go to their website, fill out an application, and wait to be approved for a discount. A doctor’s name and number are required on the application, so please do not try to abuse this discount.
These cigarettes are made with high-quality, USDA-grown hemp. As such, they are completely non-psychoactive, containing less than 0.3% of THC. They are priced at $9.99 per pack — so depending on where you reside, they are either average price or a little above average price for cigarettes.
I tried all four flavors. The original doesn’t have much of a taste at all. So if you’re just looking for the CBD and nothing else, it’s a great option. The other three have a little flavor bead in the filter that is activated when crushed. My favorites were the grape and the cherry. The menthol was ok, but was nothing to brag about.
The filters on these cigarettes allowed for one of the smoothest smoking experiences I’ve ever had. I didn’t cough, or burn my lungs. In fact, I could barely tell the smoke was in my mouth, and there was minimal aftertaste. I don’t smoke regular cigarettes, so I don’t know how different this experience is to tobacco.
Compared to other CBD products I’ve tried, these had the most results for me. After smoking, I felt a noticeable change in my energy and mood. I felt way more relaxed, and even more focused. As such, I would recommend these to college students to help them focus when studying, to those who want to focus at work, or for the older adults to just relax in general.
I think these are a great alternative to smoking regular cigarettes, and even to smoking cannabis high in THC. When money was tight, I was drawn to smoking these so I could save my cannabis for better times. I also used these to pack a CBD-rich bowl, then sprinkled some keef on top for a super chill smoke sesh.
I imagine that, for people who want to quit smoking, these CBD cigs are a great way to slowly wean yourself off of tobacco. But I am not a doctor, so don’t take medical advice from me.
These are probably my favorite CBD products I have ever tried, and I have been recommending them to everyone I know.
