Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 28, 2021) – Sweet Earth Holdings Corp. (CSE: SE) (FSE: 1KZ1) (OTCQB: SEHCF) (“Sweet Earth” the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has launched a line of cannabidiol (“CBD”) hemp cigarettes to be marketed under its wholly owned brand name, “Sweet Earth Smooth”. The cigarettes have the feel and draw that people are accustomed, but without the harmful substances found in tobacco. The cigarettes are made from 100% naturally grown US hemp flower that is rich in non-intoxicating cannabinoids like CBD and cannabigerol (“CBG”) and is completely free of tobacco, nicotine, or additives. In addition to the benefits of CBD and CBG, each cigarette is rich in terpenes, like pinene, limonene and myrcene. Sweet Earth’s cigarettes are sold on its online portal, https://sweetearthsmooth.com, which is separate from its skin and body care and pet care product portals. CBD cigarettes are an all-natural substitute to tobacco and research indicates it to be an effective and non-addictive substitute for those hoping to quit smoking1, in addition to containing an array of substantiated benefits (Table 1).

Research also reveals that method of consumption plays a critical role in how long it will take to feel the effects of CBD. Marilyn A. Huestis’ Human Cannabinoid Pharmacokinetics4 highlights increased bioavailability and expedited delivery of desired affects, approximately three minutes with CBD via inhalation. Conversely, when ingested, CBD is first sent through the digestive tract and metabolized in the liver, where it is broken down before finally being sent into the bloodstream. This process, known as the “first-pass effect,” takes place when cytochrome P450 (CYP450) oxidases enzymes in the liver, reducing CBD concentration and sending the remainder to the bloodstream and eventually throughout the body.
