The Farm Bill of 2018 has enacted numerous new hemp-related programs and freedoms throughout the United States, which has opened new paths for the cultivation, research and sale of hemp products including hemp cigarettes. But in some states, like Kansas, it’s also created more questions for lawmakers and law enforcement. As a result, some hemp-derived CBD products might be legal, but it can be a bit murky.
So, are hemp cigarettes legal in the Sunflower State? And if not, what are?
In this article, we’ll go over:
- Benefits and Uses of Hemp Cigarettes
- Is It Legal To Buy and Sell Hemp Cigarettes in Kansas?

By now, it’s likely that you’ve seen the many forms of hemp and CBD, be it tinctures, edibles, or vapes, which can all be legally bought in the state of Kansas. But one particularly popular form of CBD has been smokable hemp, which is convenient and enjoyable for many individuals while posing its benefits. And as we’ll see, it may even help curb a smoking habit.
Benefits and Uses of Hemp Cigarettes
Hemp is a plant closely related to marijuana, except it doesn’t possess the same enough THC to get the user high.
However, hemp is rich in cannabidiol, or CBD, among several other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, which many a rapidly growing number of individuals are beginning to turn to in order to relieve their pain, anxiety and lack of sleep.
Industrial hemp has been extracted to create all kinds of CBD consumables from tinctures to topicals, but many CBD enthusiasts are growing to enjoy hemp flower smokables: specifically, hemp cigarettes.
Keep in mind that inhaling any kind of plant matter might not be the best thing for your lungs. That being said, hemp cigarettes can be used as a non-carcinogenic, nicotine-free alternative to tobacco products. Plus, the lack of nicotine in hemp cigs makes them non-addictive and has even helped individuals quit smoking.
According to research from a blind study at University College London, nicotine-dependent subjects who were given CBD reduced cigarette usage by 40%, while those who took placebos noticed no difference.
Additionally, enjoying hemp flower in its whole-plant form leaves it full of all of the naturally-occurring phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavanoids. 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 Kansas?
While the Kansas hemp law SB 282 officially removed CBD from the definition of marijuana after the 2018 Farm Bill, this only applies to hemp-derived CBD isolate products.
So what about CBD cigarettes and other forms of smokable hemp?
Currently, it’s a bit unclear.
State law HB 2167 states that it’s unlawful to manufacture or sell a.) cigarettes containing industrial hemp, b.) cigars containing industrial hemp, e.) liquids, solids, or gases containing industrial hemp matter for the purpose of vaping, or f.) any other consumable hemp-derived products containing any ingredient from the plant that’s prohibited by the Kansas food, drug and cosmetic act.
That being said, there’s nothing in the law regarding the possession of hemp cigarettes, implying that while Kansas citizens might not have the easiest time finding hemp cigarettes for sale in Kansas, they shouldn’t have to fear any legal repercussions.
However, keep in mind that hemp looks and smells a lot like marijuana, which is illegal in Kansas, so it’s recommended that if you do decide to smoke hemp cigarettes, keep it discrete.
But when you shop with Mr. Hempflower, we make sure to keep the process easy and discrete for you, so all you have to do is relax.
Choosing Quality: Where to Buy the Best CBD Cigarettes in Kansas
Hemp flower cigarettes can be legally purchased in most dispensaries, smoke shops, and wellness stores, but we know that online is often still the most convenient way to shop.
No matter where you shop, though, make sure that the brand is reputable, and always check for clear labeling and a certificate of analysis.
Let’s talk about the easiest, safest way to guarantee quality hemp cigs: by shopping online with Mr. Hemp Flower.
Quality means putting in the extra time and effort to makes something special–even if its just your smoke break.
While some brands just fill their hemp cigarettes with ground-up hemp flower and boast the product’s “purity,” we think there’s still plenty of room for extra goodness. That’s why we step it up by adding kief to our signature blend.
The kief in hemp flower is made up of the resinous glands that house the CBD and terpenes, and while it may be super-fine and light as dust, just a pinch can transform your hemp smoking experience.
On top of that, our CBD 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
Standards start with transparency, and that’s why all hemp cigarette brands should include a certificate of analysis from a third-party lab that’s easy to access.
When you see our lab tests, you’ll see not only the attention and care we put into making this product worthy of our customers, but you’ll see the spectrum of terps you’ll be enjoying.
Here are some of the main terpenes found in the proprietary blend for our CBD cigarettes.
On our site, we have all of our certificates of analysis fully accessible, and you can see our lab tests for hemp cigs here.
(H4)Alpha-Bisabolol-1.31 mg/g (.13%)
You may recognize this terpene from your steaming cup of chamomile tea! With its delicate, floral aroma, alpha-bisabolol is a soothing terpene reputed for its possible effects on anxiety and depression, as well as chronic pain, research suggests.
Guaiol-1.02 mg/g (.10%)
Guaiol is a terpene known for its clean, cypress scent and antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. On top of that, it may also be a viable source of defense against systemic inflammation, which could be applicable to multiple forms of pain.
Beta-Pinene-.626 mg/g (.06%)
While beta-pinene has evidence as a pain-relieving component, this terpene may also help those with coughs and for clearing passageways thanks to their expectorant properties.
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 one of a few caryophyllene-based terpenes and is known for an aroma found in black pepper, hops and cloves. Due to its high potential for neuroprotective properties, caryophyllene may be an especially useful terp against chronic pain and inflammation.
The laws are still a bit murky when it comes to hemp cigarettes in Kansas: while smokable hemp’s illegal to sell, but nothing in the new law bans the buying or possession of it.
Currently, hemp oil is legal to buy and sell in Kansas, but smokable hemp is not.
Industrial hemp and its derivative CBD are allowed in the state of Kansas, but only for CBD isolate, which can be manufactured into a variety of CBD products. Smokable hemp, such as pre-rolls, hemp cigarettes and joints, are not legal.
