Redwood Reserve sent over a twenty pack of their Class A Hemp Smokes with the new white filter for me to try. Besides Hemp Smokes, Redwood Reserve also features other CBD products such as CBD Pre-Rolls and CBD flower from the Redwood Reserves.
Founded in 2019 in Mollala, Oregon, Redwood Reserves is the name of USA Hemp’s newest line of CBD products that continue their longstanding dedication to providing quality hemp flower to the masses. As they proudly claim on their website, Redwood Reserve does not cut corners - and you can see that company mindset shine through from the product website to the product packaging to the product itself.
Redwood Reserves first launched their Hemp Smokes with just a six-pack available, but are now selling their twenty packs!
The Redwood Reserve Hemp Smokes arrive in a beautifully decorated folded pack of twenty, featuring smooth white, black, and red colors. The box is white, grained wood that features the silhouette of a redwood forest - a throwback to the Pacific Northwest region that produces so much of America’s cannabis.
The bottom of the pack also features “tasting notes” that allow you to know what to expect, taste-wise. For this batch of hemp flowers, the advertised tastes are citrus, earthy, and sweet. The hemp smokes themselves are almost indistinguishable from a tobacco cigarette unless you look through the open hole and notice some green.
Each smoke packs a whopping 0.8 grams of pure hemp flower in it, which their testing has shown works out to about 100mg of CBD per smoke - how much of that you ingest will depend on your body. That means there’s over a half-ounce of hemp flower and 2000 mg of CBD conveniently machine rolled up for you to take on the go. Speaking of the hemp flower, Redwood Reserve only uses hemp flowers that are grown in Oregon’s Willamette Valley with the Redwood family’s tried and true all-natural method: only water and sun.
When you open the box, you’re greeted by the same familiar cigarette box packaging down to the foil covering and pull out roach strip in the top. The smell of hemp will hit your nose as soon as you tear off the foil. I found it pleasant, and not too overpowering.
The smell is distinct if you know what you’re looking for, but also lacks the alarming “loud” notes that THC laden cannabis flowers usually have. That is to say, you don’t have to worry about bothering anybody with your second-hand smoke as it’s much more pleasant than tobacco smoke - just make sure to smoke at allowed locations.
When smoked, the flavors mentioned on the box really come out in force. The sweet and citrusy tastes nicely complement the earthy tones. The Hemp Smokes’ perfectly cured hemp flower stays lit without the addition of chemicals. The long cotton filter allows you to take large hits without burning your lips. I took long drags that filled my lungs and noticed that I had instinctively started holding the hemp smoke with my fingers in a peace sign configuration, not an OK sign configuration - as all smokers are prone to do.
The relaxation is real. Even without THC, there are hundreds of other non-psychoactive cannabinoids that can synergize through the cohort effect with the CBD in the hemp flower. On top of the noticeable chemical effect, I know that a large part of my enjoyment was from a purely psychological fount, as well. Even though it’s been years since my last cigarette, smoking Redwood Reserve Hemp Smokes brings back all the positive memories, without any of the guilt.
In my simple mind, I think: Nicotine by itself is possibly carcinogenic - CBD by itself is not. I didn’t feel the physically addictive urge to have another one within a few hours - I was still enjoying the relaxed state which stayed with me for several hours. With dinner, I smoked another Hemp Smoke and that carried me all the way to one of the most comfortable and uninterrupted nights of sleep that I’ve had in weeks.
Ease of use: 4.9/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
Redwood Reserve Hemp Smokes is a twenty pack of pre-rolled hemp smokes - and they’re perfect for on the go smoking. They’re made of pure hemp flower and will provide you a reliable dose of CBD without any of the THC effects. If you’re going to carry a pack of something around to smoke all day - make it Redwood Reserve. Your body will thank you.
