If you're looking for an alternative to traditional nicotine cigarettes, AltSmokes’ premium hemp cigarettes are made from 100% American-grown hemp and deliver a relaxing experience without tobacco or nicotine.

AltSmokes’ hempettes are the latest and greatest hemp cigarettes that are taking the industry by storm. Whether you're looking for a healthier alternative to tobacco or simply want to find a way to relax, AltSmokes offers a superior hemp product for the modern smoker.

Who Is Alt Smokes?

From the rolling foothills and great smoky mountains of Tennessee, comes a hemp brand made for smokers of all stripes. A hemp brand that values quality, all-natural products with visually striking packaging.

Based in Smithville, Tennessee, AltSmokes began as a simple but powerful idea over the holidays in 2019. CEO Bryan Wyka and President Crede Colgan joined entrepreneurial forces to create one of the best CBD cigarettes on the market today.

A good hemp cigarette starts off with high-quality hemp.

Since 2018, Crede had been growing hemp. The duo came up with the concept of creating hemp cigarettes that use premium hemp for a better taste and flavor than everything else that’s out there. Shortly after, they went full steam ahead with the operation and literally hand-rolled thousands of hempettes.

They began selling, passing them out, and seeing how the public reacted to them. They were an instant success.

AltSmokes stands by a simple credo, according to Wyka in an interview with the leading trade publication B2B Wholesaler Mag: to help deliver “a cleaner, smoother, filtered smokable hemp product that helps people chill out and overcome nicotine addictions.”

What Are Alt Smokes’ Hemp Cigarettes?

Hempettes aren't your traditional weed joints. They’re made of hemp flower with low THC (0.3%), just CBD from the hemp plant. It's the perfect way to chill and relax without the high.

AltSmokes works with farmers in Tennessee to grow American-grown hemp made from 100% premium hemp flower.

No tobacco. No nicotine. 100% premium-grown hemp flower.

It’s that simple.

What Makes AltSmokes Stand Out Among the Rest?

Full-Spectrum Hemp

Apart from delivering full transparency of the hemp inside the hempettes, AltSmokes delivers a superior CBD cigarette because they're one of a handful of companies that don't remove the CBD from the flower before it manufactures its product.

Cannabidiol (CBD) elicits relaxing and clear-headed effects without the high feeling you get from smoking THC. Along with other minor cannabinoids, CBD’s relaxing effects are amplified for a chiller experience.

The What, the How, and the Why of Hemp Cigarettes

Consumers now have access to a novel and exciting product option in the ever-evolving market for cannabis and hemp-based goods: hemp cigarettes.

They provide an alternative to conventional tobacco cigarettes and even cannabis products with a high concentration of THC, as they are made exclusively from the hemp plant.

But can you explain exactly what hemp cigarettes are? How are they put together? And how do they stack up against more conventional types of tobacco products? Let's just jump right in.

What Are Hemp Cigarettes?

Although they both come from the same plant, hemp cigarettes are not the same as marijuana cigarettes.

Hemp cigarettes are created solely from the hemp plant. Although hemp and marijuana are both derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, marijuana has a substantially higher THC concentration than hemp does. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC for short, is the chemical that gives cannabis its psychoactive effects.

Because hemp contains just trace levels of THC (less than 0.3%, as required by law), smoking hemp cigarettes will not cause one to become “high.”

How Are Hemp Cigarettes Made?

Harvesting and Drying: Just like marijuana, the hemp plant needs to be harvested and dried properly in order to be used. This procedure guarantees that all of the moisture will be extracted from the hemp while protecting the cannabinoids and terpenes that are responsible for its distinctive flavor and scent.

The hemp that has been dried is next cured, which is a procedure that helps it to become even drier and for its tastes to develop.
After being cured, the hemp is next ground into a powder of a consistency that is acceptable for smoking.
The ground hemp is then rolled into cigarette papers before the next step, rolling. Sometimes, in the same manner as with regular tobacco cigarettes, a filter is included.

Hemp Cigarette Laws

Hemp was removed off the Controlled Substances Act as a result of the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which made it possible to legally cultivate, sell, and consume the plant in the United States as long as it contained no more than 0.3% THC.

Therefore, if they match the THC criterion, hemp cigarettes can now be sold legally across the United States. However, it is of the utmost importance to understand the local state laws, since some states may have restrictions or differing regulations surrounding hemp and the products made from it.

Taste and Effects of Hemp Cigarettes

When compared to smoking ordinary tobacco or cannabis with a high THC content, hemp cigarettes provide a unique and enjoyable alternative.

The flavor is typically described as having overtones of earthiness, woodiness, or a mild sweetness, and it also has undertones that are suggestive of cannabis.

Even while hemp cigarettes won't induce a psychoactive high, many users say that they have a tranquil or relaxing sensation after smoking them.

This is likely due to the high level of CBD (cannabidiol), which is found in hemp cigarettes. Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is becoming increasingly popular because to the possible therapeutic benefits it offers, including effects on anxiety and inflammation.

Hemp Cigarettes vs. Tobacco: Health Considerations

Although it is essential to point out that breathing in any kind of smoke might pose risks to one's health, preliminary study and knowledge suggest that hemp cigarettes might be less toxic than their counterparts made of tobacco:

Hemp, in contrast to tobacco, does not contain nicotine, which is the highly addictive component that is found in regular cigarettes. Because of this, there is less of a chance of becoming addicted.

Cigarettes made from tobacco typically include thousands of compounds, the majority of which are hazardous and can cause cancer.

Even though the combustion of any plant material results in the production of tar and possible carcinogens, hemp cigarettes do not include any of the additional dangerous compounds that the majority of tobacco products do.

As was previously noted, hemp is a source of CBD, which is a cannabinoid that has been investigated for the possibility that it possesses therapeutic effects.
The final word

Hemp cigarettes are an exciting alternative to tobacco products since they do not include nicotine and they contain CBD. There is the potential for these cigarettes to provide health advantages. 

However, just like any other product, they should be used in an appropriate manner and with a full comprehension of the potential benefits as well as risks.

If you are thinking about trying hemp cigarettes, it is always a good idea to seek the advice of a qualified medical practitioner and to purchase products from companies that have a solid reputation like Altsmokes.
