If you’ve dabbled with hemp or CBD for a while, you’ve probably learned how inhalable hemp, like vapes and hemp cigarettes, can create a highly bioavailable form of CBD, along with the rest of hemp’s full-spectrum components, and at an incredibly fast rate.
But as hemp laws have shifted with the 2018 Farm Bill, some state citizens are left scratching their heads. While many more states have legalized industrial hemp, different rules may apply to specific forms of consumable hemp, and one of these products includes hemp cigarettes.
And while hemp has been legal for research purposes in Minnesota since 2014, it’s a whole new story now that new statutes have been passed in 2019.

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.
While smoking hemp cigarettes don’t give the same intoxicating effects as its close relative, marijuana, many individuals enjoy it, and consider its effects quite relaxing.
On top of that, smoking hemp flower allows the user to access the full spectrum of hemp’s components, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavanoids, while still containing a low amount of THC.
And as you may be aware, CBD has gained a lot of traction, thanks to the growing research suggesting its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its possible correlation with creating a sense of calm.
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 Minnesota?
So now you’re probably wondering: are hemp cigarettes legal in the state of Minnesota?
As of 2019, absolutely. According to Minnesota’s statures, industrial hemp is defined as any part of the Cannabis sativa, whether growing or not, and any of hemp flower’s derivatives, such as “extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers,” so long as the plant matter or its derivatives contain less than .3% THC.
In other words, most forms of hemp can be legally purchased and possessed, and this includes hemp smokables like Hemp cigarettes.
As for selling, there are no state laws designated, meaning that industrial hemp is de facto legal to sell. However, CBD used in foods and beverages cannot be legally sold in Minnesota.
Additionally, Minnesota has strict rules regarding the language surrounding hemp: sellers cannot be advertised as something that can prevent, treat, or cure any kind of ailment, and there cannot be any claims about it altering the structure or function of human or animal bodies. That being said, these are guidelines that all hemp sellers should be taking into account lest they get in trouble with the FDA.
Choosing Quality: Where to Buy the Best CBD Cigarettes in Minnesota
Since CBD cigarettes and other CBD smokables are legal in the state of Minnesota, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding hemp cigarettes in stores.
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 CBD Cigarettes are made only with 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%)
Alpha-bisabolol is frequently found in plants known for promoting a sense of tranquility; most notably 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 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.
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
Most brands will just fill their cigs with hemp flower, and while we think this is perfectly fine, we thought we could do better.
That’s we fill our cigarettes with premium hemp flower and kief.
Known for its appearance and consistency of an ultra-fine, lightweight dust, kief comes from the resinous trichomes found in hemp, and are loaded with terps and cannabinoids.
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 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:

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.
As there are no laws banning the sale of hemp flower or hemp products, the laws go to federal, making it legal.
Yes. Full-spectrum hemp cigarettes should contain a wealth of cannabinoids, including CBD, CBN, and CBG.
Unless otherwise stated on packaging, hemp cigarettes do not contain nicotine, which renders them without the highly addictive properties of traditional cigarettes.
