In this article I will describe how to smoke Hemp, and what the minute by minute experience is like when smoking hemp.
First off, it is important to note I have not ingested any Hemp or Cannabis in a very long time. That being said, I used to be a major stoner, so I am quite experienced with smoking Cannabis.
Notably, Hemp is actually Cannabis, except Hemp has less than 0.3% THC, so the method to smoke Hemp is the same as the method used to smoke Cannabis.
The main reason I am choosing to try Hemp is because I have heard it has all the benefits of smoking Cannabis, except it doesn’t cause strong intoxication, it doesn’t cause paranoia, and it is still easy to function on Hemp.
I don’t like smoking Cannabis because it is too strong, and I want to see if it is true if Hemp has all of the benefits with none of the bad.
In the article picture above you can see my smoking setup. I got a cheap metal pipe, bowl screens to prevent the Hemp from getting sucked through the pipe, and a 4-piece grinder to properly grind the Hemp. 4-piece grinders are awesome because they collect Kief in the bottom chamber, which is super potent Hemp crystals that you can collect and smoke for a stronger experience.
4:49 PM I put the brass screen snugly in the bowl, so I don’t suck in any ash when smoking.
4:51 PM I place a potent looking bud into the grinder and start grinding. It smells extremely nice.
4:55 PM I pack the bowl, and it looks just like real Cannabis, because it is real Cannabis.
5:03 PM I got delayed a bit cause I had a phone call, but I am ready to smoke! I take a hit and hold it in, and it tastes just like real weed.
Instantly I feel a flush of warmth across my body, simultaneous with a wave of relaxation. I took a pretty big hit.
5:05 PM This is very interesting! Unlike regular Cannabis where I start to get way too high by this point even from 1 hit, I feel totally sober and my brain is still working 100%. This seems to be an incredible advantage of smoking Hemp. All of the fun of smoking Cannabis without my mind being shattered.
5:06 PM Overall I just feel happier and more relaxed, but still 100% sharp. This is incredible. I’ve always wanted Cannabis to be like this, where my mind doesn’t get blown to bits just for taking a hit.
5:08 PM I take another couple of hits. My mind still has not been blown to bits, just more relaxed!
5:11 PM The feeling of relaxation has increased, and the feeling of sedation is creeping in a bit. This is the exact level of ‘stonedness’ that I prefer, so I stopped smoking.
The amazing thing is that with the potent Cannabis out there on the streets, it never hits this perfect level where I got some good feelings and relaxation but can still fully function, it just goes right past that level even with a tiny hit. It’s nice to be able to take some hits and slowly reach the exact level of ‘stonedness’ that I prefer.
5:15 PM This definitely has the same feeling as Cannabis, just much easier to control the dose. I’m sure if I smoked a bunch more I could get totally stoned, but I don’t want to do that.
Right now I have a nice pressure in my forehead and behind my eyes, just like with Cannabis, and just feeling super chill and relaxed. This is a major stress reliever!
5:17 PM Feeling a bit more sedated, I wouldn’t mind a nap. Of course, it’s the end of a long work day so that’s a normal feeling at this time. Simultaneously though, zero paranoia and just all-around good feelings, and very little intoxication and I’m still fully functional.
5:20 PM Music is really awesome right now! Doing some writing work right now, which would be impossible if I smoked regular Cannabis.
5:26 PM The effects are steady now. Just a perfect level of Cannabis feeling with moderate euphoria and relaxation, and zero paranoia, zero memory loss, and my brain is working just as good as before I smoked.
Overall, I strongly recommend Hemp to people who smoke regular Cannabis, since clearly it provides all the relaxing and euphoric benefits of Cannabis, as well as a very nice body feeling, without any paranoia, intoxication, or feeling of being overwhelmed. Hemp is the perfect form of Cannabis for people who want to smoke but still function.
