Amongst the many choices you have for hemp-derived products, hemp cigarettes have become an especially popular way to relax with the help of CBD, plus the whole spectrum of cannabinoids, terps, and flavonoids.
And as you might’ve heard already, cannabis is now legal in the state of Michigan, but what laws apply to hemp smokables?
Because as we’ve seen with the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp laws aren’t always so straightforward, and just because a state allows cannabis doesn’t automatically leave the rules wide open for hemp products. And sometimes, the laws can get murky, whether you’re looking to grow, sell, or possess hemp cigarettes.
In this guide, we’ll go over:

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, and lack of sleep.
And while we’ve come to see it manufactured in all forms, from tinctures to topicals, CBD enthusiasts are growing to enjoy hemp flower smokables: specifically, hemp cigarettes. And for a surprising reason!
Now, while it should be clarified that inhaling any kind of plant matter may pose health risks, hemp cigarettes are 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.
For instance, research from a blind study at University College London showed that nicotine-dependent subjects who 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.
Is It Legal To Buy Hemp Cigarettes in Michigan?
If you’re a Michigan resident who seeks a truly relaxing smoke break, we’ve got good news: hemp cigarettes are legal in the state!
As of January 2019, CBD extracted from industrial hemp was officially legalized and defined as cannabis with less than .3% THC concentration by dry weight.
As a result, Michigan’s also enacted a licensing program under the state’s Dept. of Agriculture and Rural Development, which is for those who wish to grow, process, or sell hemp within the state’s borders, although it has not yet been formally approved.
Until then, growers and sellers will have to take part in the state’s Industrial Hemp Ag-Pilot program in order to be eligible for the growing season.
While smokable hemp and CBD oil are legal in the state, it’s still prohibited to sell foods or beverages containing hemp-derived products.
Choosing Quality: Where to Buy the Best CBD Cigarettes in Michigan
Because it’s legal, you should have no problem finding CBD cigarettes in any Michigan smoke shop, dispensary, and even some convenience stores.
And shopping for the best CBD cigarettes in Michigan is great when done in person because that gives you the chance to see the product up close before buying, and it’s easier to ask sellers questions this way.
But sometimes, you’d rather shop from the comfort of your home, and we totally understand the appeals there as well.
Wherever you shop, make sure that the brand is reputable. If you’re shopping in-store, check the label for the:
- CBD content
- Net weight
- Supplement & ingredient facts
- Full-spectrum, broad-spectrum or isolate
- Batch number or QR code
- Manufacturer/distributor information
With that said, let’s talk about the easiest, safest way to guarantee quality hemp cigs: by shopping online with Mr. Hemp Flower.
Proof in the Results: Terpenes in Mr. Hemp Flower CBD Cigarettes
When you’re seeking to use hemp flower in its whole form, one of the biggest appeals is those full-spectrum benefits, meaning that you’re going to get all the naturally-occurring compounds found in hemp, including CBD, CBG, and a wide variety of beneficial terpenes.
But we also know that quality varies, and this can seriously impact your hemp cigs’ chance of reaching the entourage effect, resulting in a lower-quality smoke.
That’s why our Hemp Cigarettes are made only ith US-grown hemp, which is grown exclusively by experienced farmers throughout Colorado, Washington State, and Oregon, making for a smoke break primed for promoting the entourage effect.
Alpha-Bisabolol-1.31 mg/g (.13%)
Largely acclaimed for its calming effects, alpha-bisabolol is most notably found in fragrant chamomile, and some research even highlights its possible efficacy against anxiety and depression.
Guaiol-1.02 mg/g (.10%)
Guaiol is a terpene known for its woodsy, clean, sometimes “rosy” scent, and while plants with high levels of it have been used in traditional medicine for years, the research is still fairly new. That being said, most of the evidence points to guaiol’s potential for combating pain, like this 2010 study.
Beta-Pinene-.626 mg/g (.06%)
Beta-pinene might be most widely noted for its properties in boosting focus and mental clarity, but it’s also reported for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
And as a terpene with expectorant properties, beta-pinene can help clear the passageways of coughs, and may also be useful against pain symptoms.
Trans-Caryophyllene .464 mg/g (.05%)
Found in hops, rosemary and cloves, caryophyllene has actually been researched for longer than many other terpenes, and has been shown to act as a neuroprotective agent by interacting with the CB1 and CB2 receptors to bring down inflammation.
Quality Craftsmanship & Customer Service
While some brands pride themselves for their hemp cigs being made with pure hemp flower, we like to step ours up.
And to do this, we fill our cigarettes with premium hemp flower and kief.
Kief, which has the appearance and consistency of an ultra-fine, lightweight dust, comes from the resinous trichomes found in hemp, as well as with cannabis.
The kief in hemp flower is made up of the resinous glands that house the CBD and terpenes, so sifting together just a pinch can transform your hemp smoking experience.
On top of that, our hemp 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:
