Can you smoke CBD in ragbag?

Ragbag is an ancestral practice that is coming back into fashion, most often to create a cozy atmosphere and diffuse soothing scents in your home. It is now enhanced by the innovative integration of cannabidiol (CBD) in the form of well-chosen flowers and leaves.

From the careful selection of hemp varieties to tips for preparing your own blend, learn how to create a unique atmosphere in your home, punctuated by bewitching hemp pleasures. But be warned: don't be tempted to smoke your ragbag. We'll explain why it's not a good idea and offer safer alternatives for enjoying CBD.

But what exactly is ragbag?

Before talking about this explosive combo that is CBD and ragbag, let’s first explore this concept of ragbag. We're sure some have got it wrong: no, ragbag isn't just that dodgy concoction that our grandmothers proudly kept in a little bowl on the living room cabinet and which smelled a little too strong. Well yes, that's it, but sometimes it smells really good and it feels good!

Basically, ragbag is a (tasteful) mixture of dried plants, flower petals, and sometimes handpicked spices, all delicately flavored with essential oils. The primary objective is obvious: to scent a space to create a somewhat cozy atmosphere. But there may be another objective, a little more health and well-being: to provide virtues and interesting properties such as calming, relaxation, anti-allergic action, etc. You see us coming with CBD, but we'll get to that in a bit.

Traditionally, ragbag will be made with lavender, a plant known for its soothing and relaxing effects. You can also find mint, a plant appreciated for its ability to revitalize and refresh, especially in summer. It can be combined with rosemary for its stimulating and energizing properties.

Now let's get down to business: why include CBD leaves or flowers in a ragbag?

CBD ragbag: what's the point?

We stay with the double objective of starting the ragbag: the atmosphere and the well-being. If you are an avid reader of the 321CBD blog, you know that cannabidiol is a non-psychotropic and non-addictive molecule found naturally in the hemp plant, including Cannabis L. Sativa and Cannabis Indica varieties. This molecule, which is one of the cannabinoids in the same way as CBG, CBN or CBC, shines with several physiological virtues that will do you good:

  • Antalgic effect, relieving mild to moderate pain;
  • Anti-inflammatory properties, especially in the muscles, joints but also in the skin;
  • Soothing and relaxing virtues, in particular to relieve stress and anxiety and promote healthy and restful sleep;
  • An antioxidant action, insofar as CBD and other cannabinoids from the hemp plant are able to neutralize free radicals, responsible for premature cellular ageing.

In addition to its action on the body and the mind, CBD also finds its place in an atmospheric ragbag. Indeed, CBD flowers and leaves from certain varieties (not all, we grant you) can give off a pleasant aroma and add a fruity, organic or surprising note to your living space.

The top 5 hemp varieties for a pleasant ragbag

Let's digress: not all CBD strains have a ragbag-compatible flavor. Some are a bit too earthy, pungent or even… just smell bad, like Skunks. Come on, we offer you our little pro list of varieties with sweeter, more floral, more airy aromas, for a pleasant ragbag:

  1. The Sour Space Candy: You'd almost swear it was created to spice up ragbag! Sour Space Candy develops a soft and sweet aroma reminiscent of tropical fruits, with a slight citrus note in the background. This variety will give your ragbag an exotic side with lots of pep;
  2. Hawaiian Haze: As its name suggests, Hawaiian Haze has floral and fruity notes reminiscent of tropical islands. It will therefore be perfect for a slightly light, summery ragbag that evokes idleness;
  3. The Lifter: here we are dealing with a variety with a slightly more complex organoleptic profile. The Lifter develops notes of lemon, pepper and mint. It will add an intriguing and original touch to a classic medley;
  4. Cherry Wine: With its sweet aroma of cherry and ripe wine, Cherry Wine brings a deliciously rich and sweet note to your ragbag. We recommend it if you are looking for a slightly romantic atmosphere;
  5. The Elektra: this variety is well known to regulars of hemp pleasures for its pleasant scent that mixes notes of pine, red fruits, chocolate and coffee... just that ! It will bring a friendly, gourmet and warm side to your ragbag.

How to incorporate CBD flowers and/or leaves into a ragbag?

Whether you're looking for a nice little cocooning atmosphere in your living room or a slightly more punchy vibe, we'll explain how to compose a ragbag to match your expectations. Here we go!

Step 1: choose the right hemp flowers

It's time to do your shopping. Don't panic: there are no squeaky shopping carts or overpriced organic vegetables here. You are going to do your shopping on 321CBD, the reference online store which offers you the best CBD products at the best price... and which offers you delivery, with no minimum purchase. Sour Space Candy, Hawaiian Haze, Lifter, Cherry Wine, Elektra... you will find what you are looking for by browsing our wide range of CBD flowers. Are you hesitating? Our advisors will be happy to guide you for a dantesque ragbag!

Step 2: drying the flowers if necessary

Have you ever had fresh, moist hemp flowers in your hands? If so, then you know that before using them, you have to go through the drying box. Place your flowers flat, in a dark, well-ventilated place, where they can dry quietly. Keep them away from each other so they can breathe. Like you, they hate being confined.

Step 3: preparing the ragbag

While your favorite hemp flowers are taking in the air, it's time to prepare your ragbag. Choose dried plants, spices and/or barks that can complement and enhance the aroma of your CBD. And if you want to add a little personal touch, don't hesitate to add a few drops of essential oil of your choice.

Step 4: Incorporating CBD into the ragbag

Are your hemp flowers really dry? Perfect. You can now add them to your ragbag. Mix everything gently, as if you were preparing pancake batter.

Step 5: let everything rest

Once you've mixed your dried hemp flowers with the rest of your ragbag, we recommend letting it sit for a few days. You can place your mixture in an airtight container, in a cool place away from light. This resting time allows the different scents to mix and blend together to create a beautiful olfactory harmony!

There you go, your CBD ragbag is ready! You can arrange it in a cup or a breathable fabric bag, and place it in the room of your choice to enjoy this relaxing and soothing atmosphere.

Can you smoke this type of CBD ragbag?

After concocting this cannabidiol ragbag, some might wonder, "What if I smoked all this?". So yes, it smells good, it looks healthy and yet the answer is clear, clean and unmistakable: it will be a big NO. We explain why:

  1. The Mixture: By definition, ragbag contains a mixture of many elements, including dried flowers, spices, barks, essential oils, and more. Chances are, most of these aren't meant to be inhaled. By burning these materials, you can release harmful, potentially toxic substances;
  2. Essential oils added to ragbag to enhance its scent can be dangerous if inhaled in this manner. They are designed to be used for diffusion, not to be burned and inhaled directly;
  3. The combustion process itself can also be harmful. When a substance is burned, it produces smoke that contains fine particles that can be harmful to the lungs.

A ragbag made entirely of CBD flowers, can it be smoked?

The situation is changing (a little). You've crafted a stunning medley of only CBD flower strains of your choice. The scent is bewitching, the hues of the flowers are harmonious, and a question nags at you: "Can I smoke this?".

Technically the answer is yes… but allow us to temper your enthusiasm! The smoke, even if it is only made from good quality hemp flowers, is still smoke. And smoke, by definition, is never good for the lungs. Even though CBD has many virtues, the combustion process produces potentially harmful substances and fine particles that can irritate your airways and negatively affect your long-term lung health.

In addition, imagine for a moment the fireworks of flavors and effects that a mixture of different varieties of CBD could cause. It's a bit like mixing all the cocktails in a bar and hoping it goes away. Different CBD strains each have their own cannabinoid and terpene profiles, so the experience could be unpredictable, confusing, disappointing or even downright unpleasant.

So what are the alternatives? If you want to enjoy the benefits of CBD without risking adverse effects on your lungs, you can opt for a gentler and safer method that is a bit like smoking without the side effects. We are of course talking about vaporization. This mode of consumption will heat the CBD without reaching the point of combustion, which allows you to inhale the cannabinoids and terpenes without the harmful substances produced by the combustion. And of course, there is always the possibility of consuming CBD orally, in the form of oils, capsules, or edibles.

Bottom Line: Even though 100% CBD ragbag is technically smokable, we recommend instead enjoying its flavor and looking for other ways to consume your CBD. After all, why ruin a beautiful ragbag by setting it in ashes?
