The hemp plant is cannabis’ high CBD cousin. Its popularity has continued to rise after the Farm Bill passed in 2018. You can find hemp products in various retail and online stores. Most of the time, it will be in the form of tinctures, topicals, and edibles. But you can also smoke hemp just like regular weed.
In flower form hemp may help to reduce stress, anxiety and can even be an alternative to smoking nicotine.
Kushy Dreams is a hemp CBD company that sells luxury hemp flower and prerolls. Over the last few weeks, I have tried three of their strains, including the Create flower, Dream flower, and half gram prerolls, and the single gram Hustle. The final product in this series of reviews is the Relax strain.
All of the Kushy Dream packaging were lightweight and portable. The single-gram prerolls come in simple easy-to-open glass tubes. This preroll was labeled simply with ‘Relax’ and a QR code for batch information. Just like the other Kushy Dream products, I wish there was more information about the flower directly on the packaging. You can find more information on their website. It lists the flower in the Relax pre-roll as a sun-grown indica strain with 16% CBD.
Looks, Taste & Smell
Right out of the container, it has a berry fragrance, a little cabernet-esque. Unfortunately, the taste isn’t quite the same. It’s not unbearably terrible; it just doesn’t have the vibrant flavors I anticipated after smelling it.
I had a similar experience with the Hustle preroll, so I think I’m just not a fan of the flavor of hemp in big hits. It tastes like dry grass. I did enjoy the taste of the Create flower, the Dream flower, but I smoked them in smaller portions.
Relax is beautifully rolled, just like the other pre-rolls from Kushy Dreams. They all burn quite beautifully, nice and slow without any running.
This pre-roll is called Relax and categorized as an Indica, giving me the idea that it would chill me out. So I smoked Relax in the evening, close to bedtime, hoping it would help me wind down. I did smoke throughout the day, so I was a bit high already when I sparked this joint. After smoking the CBD pre-roll, I felt clear-minded, and a bit energized. So it had the opposite effect of what I was hoping for. I did get a pretty intense dry mouth, too, so make sure you have a refreshing beverage handy.
The Relax preroll was a mild, pleasant experience. The act of smoking was more relaxing than the effects I experienced, but I can see why someone would want to reach for this as an option to unwind at the end of the day.
The effects of all the Kushy Dream products were relatively mild. I’d recommend them to someone looking to get light benefits from CBD but not looking to get high. I think it’s best as a nicotine replacement and a way to reduce stress possibly. I’d probably reach for the half-gram Kushy Dream pre-rolls if I were at a party. They were my favorite out of the products I tried.
The Relax preroll retails for 15 dollars. Kushy Dreams ships its products anywhere in the US.
