Wild Hemp (American Juice Co.) has been a leader in the smokable hemp and CBD industry since 2018. All of Wild Hemp’s products are made from USA grown hemp flowers from the iconic mountains of Colorado. Wild Hemp’s products are USDA certified and also lab tested and guaranteed to be under the 0.3% THC limit enforced federally.
Wild Hemp features hemp products of all sorts - from tinctures to CBD gummies to CBD lotion and now hemp cigarettes (Hempettes™) - they have it all. Wild Hemp sent over three flavors of their Hempettes™ for me to try, and I was eager to sample the different flavors: Classic, Pineapple Blaze, and Sweets.
Wild Hemp Hempettes™ come in packs of 20 cigarettes stored away in a standard cigarette box. The front, back, top, and bottom of the box feature a combination silver color with the Wild Hemp leaf logo evenly distributed over the silver parts of the background. For the classic Hempette™, the box is green and silver. For the Pineapple Blaze Hempettes™, the box is yellow and silver while the Sweet Hempettes™ features a red and silver box.
The sides of the box feature federal and state of California specific warnings for combustible products and remind you that underage sale of this product is prohibited. Wild Hemp also includes their website URL and a note stating lab reports can be found online. The lab reports for the Hempettes™ were done by Kaycha Labs.
The classic Hempettes™ test in at 9.582% CBD and 11.412% total cannabinoids. The Hempettes™ - Pineapple Blaze test in at 7.233% CBD and 8.499% total cannabinoids while the Hempettes™ - Sweet test in at 7.914% CBD and 9.439% total cannabinoids. What this means is that there is at least 50mg of CBD in each hempette, and smoking it is one of the most bioavailable ways to consume CBD. That is to say, you’ll feel it nearly instantaneously - definitely a heck of a lot sooner than if you ate that much CBD as an edible.
As I pulled the foil away from the classic Hempettes™, I smelled a wholesome and familiar earthy smell. Overall, I liked the taste of the classic Hempettes™ the most. Maybe I’m just old school but there’s something about the taste of hemp smoke that hits a calming nerve for me from the first drag, even before the CBD starts coursing through my veins and across my blood-brain barrier to affect my mental state and make it calmer.
Once the calm feeling hits, it doesn’t leave. I found myself more talkative than normal - the usual telltale sign that my social anxiety has melted away. Everything from the smell of flowers on the plant to the smell of well-cured flowers and even the smell of second-hand smoke from flowers elicit this response from me and Wild Hemp’s hemp hits the nail on the head.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
I liked the smell of the Pineapple Blaze Hempettes™ the most out of the box and the taste when smoked was a close second to the unflavored, original Hempettes™. The smell of the Pineapple Blaze is lightly fruity and sweet. When smoked, that blend ends up being almost tangy and a little bit sour - but still pleasantly sweet and definitely tasty.
Overall, I couldn’t tell much of a difference between this Hempettes ™ and the other flavors; however, I did notice that the effects weren’t as immediately strong as the classic flavor. I don’t know if I was feeling the difference in CBD percentages or too focused on the added flavoring; either way, it was still enjoyable and relieved both physical and mental stress.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
The sweetness of the flavoring in the Sweet Hempette™ is tempered by the earthy tones of the hemp flower, creating a very pleasant blend. The sweetness wasn’t saccharine and it didn’t have any fruity notes as the Pineapple Blaze did. Instead, the Sweet has a deep and long-lasting smell and taste when smoked. If I had to describe what makes the Sweet different from the other flavors of Hempettes™ with one word, I’d say it has a warmer taste and smell to the flavor
I really enjoyed this flavor because it reminded me of the kind of candy flavor that you choose to take your time with and savor instead of chewing up quickly. Each of the Hempette™ flavors has different CBD and other cannabinoid levels which means the effects aren't exactly the same. I felt that the Sweet Hempette™ had more of a physical calming and relief effect on me than mental - at least when compared with the other flavors.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
Wild Hemp Hempettes™ are available in 3 different flavors and contain over 1000mg of CBD in each pack. Wild Hemp has really done a great job with the Hempettes™ and everyone from regular THC/CBD users to those trying to quit tobacco cigarettes should give them a try! Even the fact that the hempettes come with a modified filter shows how much Wild Hemp thought about the design of their product. Hemp is a lot more sticky than tobacco, and a complete cotton filter will often be way too mucked up by the end of a cigarette. These are a well thought out product and they deserve a try.
