Cannabidiol (CBD) can be consumed in various formats: topical application, oral absorption, ingestion, and smoke inhalation. CBD can be enjoyed in a gummy or in a variety CBD recipes for smoothies, salads, dressings, dinners, and desserts!
Bottle & Stone is proud to offer high quality organic full-spectrum CBD oils and sprays extracted from USA-grown hemp. However, we believe it is essential to also explore other methods of consumption, notably smoking CBD, to provide insights for our community on their wellness journey.
The primary reason behind the popularity and buzz of CBD is that it is a non-psychoactive compound, naturally derived from hemp, that offers therapeutic benefits. CBD can help to alleviate anxiety, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, and enhance cell-to-cell communication within the nervous, immune, and hormonal systems.
CBD is generally well-tolerated and does not elicit mood-altering sensations of euphoria. While CBD does not make one “high” and is not typically consumed recreationally, there is a community of enthusiasts who find peace and pleasure in experiencing the Entourage Effect through smoking.
The Ritual of Smoking CBD
For those who enjoy smoking in solitude or socially, the tangible experience of holding the smoke object in between their fingers and inhaling and exhaling can be profoundly mentally and physically comforting. This ritualistic pattern offers a sense of relaxation, aligning with the therapeutic effects of CBD through mechanisms of action in the body's endocannabinoid system.
The major therapeutic benefit of smoking pure organic CBD is that it produces a rapid onset of effects. Inhaling the smoke of pure organic CBD bypasses liver metabolism, entering the bloodstream directly. This delivery method provides higher bioavailability, offering more immediate relief compared to other consumption methods.
The rapid onset bioavailability of smoking CBD may offer peace of mind to those who do not wish to rely on pharmaceutical or synthetic solutions for swift pain relief, knowing instead that they can reach for a conveniently pre-rolled and natural solution.
Ongoing clinical trials explore CBD's potential in managing substance withdrawal, headaches, fibromyalgia, and symptoms of conditions like pediatric epilepsy and cancer. For individuals post-surgery recovery, CBD may modulate pain signaling to allow for a more comfortable and relaxed healing process. For patients of Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis, CBD may provide relief in response to neurological symptoms of chronic pain.

Is CBD Smoke “Healthier” Than Marijuana or Tobacco Smoke?
While smoking can elevate or enhance the experience of taking CBD, the question of whether CBD smoke is "healthier" than marijuana or tobacco smoke is multifaceted. Smoking, regardless of the type of substance, poses inherent risks to respiratory health. Always consult with a healthcare professional and ask about the right dose and format for you. Furthermore, you should always stay informed and aware of the legal regulations of CBD and CBG in your city and state to ensure safe consumption.
Smoking CBD in the format of a pure organic CBD pre-roll offers the ritualistic comfort of smoking, without commercial additives, like those found in cigarettes. Thus, it is important to purchase any form of CBD through reputable brands that undergo third-party lab testing to verify its purity as well as compliance to the legal limit of THC below 0.3%.
