Where are You Allowed to Smoke CBD Pre-Rolls?

October 28, 2020

CBD pre-rolls, also known as hemp pre-rolls or hemp joints, look and smell like cannabis joints—except they’re legal in more places. Here’s where you’re allowed to smoke CBD pre-rolls.

Why CBD and hemp is legal

Hemp and cannabis are actually the same species of plant. The difference between hemp and cannabis is entirely based on a legal definition: hemp contains 0.3 percent THC or less, while cannabis contains more. 

THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol) is a chemical that can make you feel intoxicated. In effect, hemp can’t make you feel intoxicated, but cannabis can. Hemp is not smoked in order to get “high,” but for the medical benefits of CBD and for relaxation. 

Since CBD pre-rolls are made with high-CBD hemp, they are legal. 

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, it is now legal to grow hemp anywhere in the United States. The Farm Bill also made it legal to produce, sell, and use hemp-derived CBD products in every state. 

Since our CBD products are all derived from hemp, they can be bought and consumed throughout the US

Smokable CBD might be banned in some states

Recently, both North Carolina and Indiana attempted to introduce laws that banned smokable hemp

In North Carolina’s case, the North Carolina Farm Act would revise the definition of hemp to exclude smokable hemp. It did not pass the last session, which means that the Act was challenged. Indiana attempted to enact a similar law, but it was challenged and prevented from taking effect—for now.  

This means it’s legal to smoke CBD pre-rolls there at the moment, but it’s important to keep your eye on these laws, as they may change.

Practicality

While CBD pre-rolls are legal, they do look and smell like weed. At first blush, nobody can tell whether you’re smoking cannabis or hemp—including law enforcement. Even drug-sniffing dogs can’t actually tell the difference, according to The Fresh Toast.

As such, there is a possibility you’d be arrested for possessing or smoking hemp, even though it’s actually legal. Think about it: a police officer is unlikely to pause and ask you about the THC content of your joint.

We advise you to practice caution. If you’re in a state where cannabis is still illegal, it’s best to be careful and discreet when smoking hemp, the same way you’d be if you smoked cannabis. 

If you’re caught smoking hemp, you can challenge it in court—but you probably don’t want it to ever get that far. Try our CBD capsules instead.

Be considerate

No matter what you’re smoking, be considerate to those around you. Smoke of all kinds can trigger asthma attacks, and many people simply don’t like the smell. 

In the same way you wouldn’t smoke cannabis or a cigarette in enclosed spaces, don’t smoke a CBD pre-roll in a small space—particularly one that you have to share with others. 

If you’re interested in trying it for yourself, browse through our CBD pre-rolls. We have three different strains of hemp—Vibes, Balance, and Boost—each with their own effects and aromas.
