What are CBD cigarettes?
CBD cigarettes, also commonly known as hemp cigarettes, are cigarettes made from the flowers and other parts of the hemp plant, instead of tobacco. Depending on the strain (or blend of strains) used to make CBD cigarettes, these products contain varying levels of CBD (cannabidiol) and other cannabinoids. All legal hemp cigarettes contain less than 0.3% THC (the psychoactive molecule found in marijuana), and due to the lack of tobacco contain no nicotine. And because they are not psychoactive, CBD cigarettes won’t get you high and are federally legal in the United States.

Yes! Your CBD cigarettes are still safe. The hemp plant is a robust, oily plant, especially the flowering parts which are full of cannabinoids.

While cigarette tobacco is dried, brown and lifeless, the hemp in Shaman Smokes is still green and fresh, full of the living oil that makes this plant so special. Over time, some of this oil can soak into the paper, creating the spots you see. This is a sign that your Shaman Smokes CBD cigarettes are full of the raw hemp oil that sets them apart from other products.
