No, man ✌️
If that’s what you’re expecting, we’re sorry, but hemp smokes won’t get you high. On the other hand, if you want to quit THC or tobacco, this could be your shot.
Many people ask us if Chief Stix can get them high from both sides. But our hemp smokes won’t do that. It’s simple: the main component of our hemp smokes is cannabidiol (CBD) – which has no psychoactive effects – and our 100% organic hemp flower only contain up to 0.3% of THC by dry weight, the legal amount. So, everything’s clear. Now, you can rest a bit, sit comfortably and pay attention as we explain why. Keep reading and chiefin 🍃
Differences between hemp and marijuana
They are not the same, even at the beginning. Hemp and marijuana are grown in different ways to potentialize its uses. Hemp is the Cannabis plant that is harvested for industrial purposes, from medicine to hemp smokes, food products, clothing, building… Seriously, sometimes it seems that the list will never end.
Marijuana is the classification for Cannabis that is grown to optimize its flower production, also maximizing its THC levels – the psychoactive compound we’ll talk about soon. The plant is treated as a controlled substance, and, for now, it is illegal at the federal level.
On the other side, hemp is legal since the 2018 Farm Bill. We can grow it and create several kinds of products with it as long as it contains up to 0.3% of THC by dry weight.
So, the main difference is the quantity of THC?
Mainly, yes. The two compounds give us different effects. The delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) binds to our CB1 and CB2 receptors, causing the psychoactive effects known as being high – but it can also help with conditions as pain and muscle spasticity.
Cannabidiol (CBD) also interacts with our endocannabinoid systems, but its effects could be defined as calming and soothing. Its widely used to treat pain, anxiety, and insomnia. That’s why hemp smokes can do the trick in a restless day. When a lot of thoughts are on your mind, and you can’t focus or sleep, smoking a Chief can help you relax a little bit.
Rolling it all up
Hemp smokes can only contain up to 0.3% of THC per dry weight – the legal amount. But their CBD will get a guilt-free chill, so you know you’re getting calmer without all that dangerous tobacco and nicotine chemicals. Just a little peace and no worries ✌️
Now, you know why hemp smokes won’t get you high. If that was your intention, it isn’t for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give it a try, right?
