The Farm Bill of 2018 established a Federal definition of hemp flower that distinguishes it from marijuana, which contains THC and is still illegal in several states.
However, the state of Hawaii has had quite a long and complicated history with hemp flower and CBD, and many of these complications have occurred in the past year.
With the ever-changing rules, it’s hard to keep track of what is and isn’t legal; let alone figure out the best hemp cig brands to buy.
We hope, this will clarify tour biggest hemp questions when it comes to CBD and hemp cigarette laws, as of August 2020.
In this guide, we’ll cover:
- Is It Legal To Buy and Sell Hemp Cigarettes in Hawaii?
- The Benefits and Uses of Hemp Cigarettes
- Where to Buy the Best Hemp Cigarettes
Benefits and Uses of Hemp Cigarettes
Hemp flower and hemp-derived CBD have become immensely popular in the past few years. Perhaps most notably in the form of CBD tinctures, though the industry’s expanded to a wide variety of other products, as well; particularly hemp and CBD smokables like hemp flower cigarettes.
While CBD cannot get you high, it does pose its own benefits, and there is some particularly poignant evidence on how it may affect inflammation.
To understand why people love hemp cigarettes so much, it helps to understand a little bit of the benefits potentially brought on by broad and full-spectrum hemp, and as we’ll see, how it may indeed help curb a smoking habit.
While it should be addressed that there is no 100% guarantee of safety when it comes to inhaling the burnt plant matter of any kind, hemp cigarettes could make a safer alternative to carcinogenic tobacco products. Plus, the lack of nicotine in hemp cigs makes them non-addictive and has even helped individuals quit smoking.
According to a University College London blind study, subjects with a nicotine dependency were given CBD reduced cigarette usage by 40%, while those who took placebos noticed no difference.
Plus, you’re still getting the same benefits of CBD and terpenes that you’d enjoy from any other CBD product, but more quickly and without the digestion process of tinctures or edibles.
We also invite fellow licensed vendors to take a look at our wholesale site, where you’ll find organic, USA-grown full spectrum hemp, along with all the premium smokables, edibles, and full-spectrum tinctures your business needs, and at an unbeatable value.
Is It Legal To Buy CBD Cigarettes in Hawaii?
In September of 2019, health officials mandated the removal of over-the-counter CBD products after an islander was hospitalized from a respiratory illness caused by vaping, and Bruce Anderson, Director Hawaii Department of Health announced that they were focusing for the time being on how to ensure CBD product’s safety.
As of late, CBD products, including CBD cigarettes, cannot be legally bought in the state of Hawaii without a prescription, but there’s been a recent update that may be quite promising: in July 2020, the Senate unanimously passed a bill that will legalize the farming, processing, and sale of industrial hemp in Hawaii.
With that in mind, we encourage fellow licensed vendors to take a look at our wholesale site, where you’ll find organic, USA-grown full spectrum hemp, along with all the premium smokables, edibles, and full-spectrum tinctures your business needs, and at an unbeatable value.
Where to Buy the Best CBD Cigarette Brands in Hawaii
CBD cigarettes or any other CBD products are illegal in Hawaii unless you’re a prescribed medical marijuana patient. In this case, Hawaii citizens can legally purchase hemp cigarettes at a registered dispensary.
That being said, finding CBD products in Hawaii are not impossible despite the mandate, as you can still buy CBD online and even in some physical stores.
But with limited local selection, ordering from the mainland may be worth it, especially when it’s Mr. Hemp Flower.
Quality & Customer Service
Quality means putting in the time, effort, and manpower into creating an amazing product, and when it comes to your smoke break, there should be no exception.
That’s why we make our hemp cigarettes with kief, and not just pure hemp flower alone.
For those who don’t know, kief is made up of the resinous glands in terpenes–basically where all the good stuff is, but ultra-concentrated. And while it’s as fine and light as dust, just a pinch can alter your entire experience.
On top of that, our hemp flower cigarettes are nicotine and tobacco-free, making them a popular alternative to traditional cigarettes.
Last but not least, we have unbeatable customer service. Here are some of our reviews from real customers:
“Love this company and every one of their products!! Amazing quality products and great customer service/updates on orders.”
“Good stuff and excellent customer service as well. The total package!”
“These kief and hemp smokes are great. The filters remove all the tar making the experience much better. will order more soon. also, the service is excellent.”
Our customer service representatives are easy to reach with any inquiries you might have, which you can submit here. On a typical business day, we usually answer our customers’ questions within 3-4 hours.
A Close-Up Look: Lab Tests, Results and Terpenes
Of course, every CBD supplier should include a certificate of analysis that’s been run by an independent lab, accurately showing the contaminant and cannabinoid levels, along with the terpene profile associated with the hemp cigarettes (or whatever product is being sold).
Our certificates of analysis are always easily accessible, so you can rest assured that you know exactly what your hemp cigarettes are made of.
Alpha-Bisabolol-1.31 mg/g (.13%)
Also known as a-bisabolol or levomenol, alpha-bisabolol is a sweet, sometimes spicy terpene most notably found in chamomile. And while it may indeed help calm the nerves, alpha-bisabolol holds especially prominent research as an analgesic and neuroprotectant, making it an excellent candidate for managing pain.
Guaiol-1.02 mg/g (.10%)
This earthy terpene is found especially in cannabis and cypress, is known for its antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, but it may also be a viable source of defense against systemic inflammation.
Beta-Pinene-.626 mg/g (.06%)
Beta pinene has an especially piney fragrance, and while it, too, has evidence of working well against pain symptoms, beta-pinene also acts as an expectorant, meaning that it helps promote the clearing of air passageways to help treat coughs.
Beta pinene has a piney fragrance that lends a deep, rich aroma to our hemp cigs while adding to this smoke’s overall relaxing effect.
Trans-Caryophyllene .464 mg/g (.05%)
Trans-caryophyllene is known for creating a robust aroma ranging from hoppy to peppery, and as one of the longest-known and longest-researched terpenes, caryophyllene has been shown to act as a neuroprotective agent by interacting with the CB1 and CB2 receptors to bring down inflammation.
You don’t need a license to buy hemp cigarettes in Hawaii, and while you do need a license to sell raw hemp flower materials, you do not need a license to sell processed hemp-derived products.
Hemp cigs can be bought from licensed dispensaries throughout Hawaii, but you can also buy them online to enjoy maximum privacy and discretion.
Industrial hemp is being grown and processed in Hawaii, but only for the purpose of medical use, and requires a prescription to obtain.
