Gather 'round, compadres, it's high time we discussed your intensions with that dirty weed you've been smoking. Yes, tobacco—that dirty weed that satisfies no normal need—the worst darn stuff you've ever seen... you know you like it! Wait, what weed were you thinking of???
Yes, we're quite sure that when Graham Lee Hemminger wrote the botched poem above, he certainly never thought any portion of the cannabis plant would ever make it into that dirty weed he so enjoyed. Fast forward 100 years and boutique cigar wunderkind Riste Ristevski (owner of Jas Sum Kral) has moved the needle in terms of premium cigars and cannabis-based products, infusing a Habano-wrapped blend with 20mg of cannabidiol (CBD).
Introducing the JSK Nuggs, a cigar that takes the conventional ideology that premium cigars equal premium relaxation and elevates the concept to a whole new level. As you may (or may not) be aware, CBD is a cannabinoid found in cannabis; however, differing from the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cannabinoid, CBD does not offer the same psychoactive results. Instead, CBD has begun to gain recognition for its health benefits, including treating/aiding anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, pain, and on, and on, and on... In short, JSK Nuggs may have the terminology of something that would alter your faculties, but in actuality, you're likely to simply feel a little more relaxed during your smoking session.
To accomplish the feat, Riste Ristevski incorporated an undisclosed binder/filler recipe, which is finalized in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The finished cigars are then sent to Colorado, where the CBD infusion process is performed. Smokers can expect a medium body and flavor components of cedar, cabinet spices, wild herbs, sage, lemon grass, earth, and buttered nuts.
So fire up a JSK Nuggs, grab a bag of Funyuns, and pop in that old Cheech 'n Chong DVD (scratch that—VHS), you're about to experience what Graham Lee Hemminger was really gettin' after!
