Jas Sum Kral Nuggs slated for April. A few months ago, we published a story about the new Jas Sum Kral cigars. A story that shook the internet for a few days, the Jas Sum Kral Nuggs. And why did that cigar create so much attention? Well, because it is infused with CDB, cannabis oil. And now Riste Riastevski, owner of Jas Sum Kral, has announced a release date. 

The cigars, two blends with two different kinds of CDB oil, will be available from April this year. And only in states that allow CDB. We reached out to Riatevski about his international distribution and he said he’s open to selling internationally as long as it’s legal yet that the cigars are infused in the United States and not at the factory in Esteli as CDB is still prohibited in Nicaragua. And that might be a problem for his European and Asian distributors, as tobacco products shipped from the United States have a tariff of 25% (for European countries, we don’t know the tariff in Asian countries), as where tobacco shipped from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic or Honduras have a zero percent tariff. That 25% will make the cigars very expensive.

Ministry of Cigars - Jas Sum Kral Nuggs

Jas Sum Kral Nuggs

Now Jas Sum Kral owner Riste Riatevski didn’t want to wait. He created the Jas Sum Kral Nuggs. He is releasing these cigars in early 2019. Besides owning and operating Jas Sum Kral Riatevski also owns and operates a CBD oil company. CBD is one of the compounds in the cannabis plant. It is the one that has therapeutic uses. It relaxes, it relieves pain, it has anti-inflammatory properties, and it helps against epilepsy. According to some doctors, it can even cure cancer. 

But the downside to CBD oil is the taste. it is very bitter so Riatevski was looking for a way to make using CBD oil pleasant. He combines his two companies for this special project. Together with his molecular scientist, they found a way to add CBD to the cigar. And while making it absorbable through the mouth and tongue of the smoker, since you don’t inhale cigar smoke. The technique is very advanced. More advanced than spraying the tobacco leaves with a CBD solution. That is how a few other companies try to create a CBD cigar.

It does not get you high

The cigar does not contain THC. THC is the compound that makes you high. All the CBD that Ristevski is using is American grown, non-GMO, and 100% organic. The oil is filtered through a 14 stage filtering to ensure that only the best and cleanest oil is used for the JSK Nuggs. The line will come in two wrappers. Firstly a Habano wrapper that will offer a euphoric, uplifting feeling. Secondly, a Maduro wrapper that is calming, relaxing, and soothing.

Jas Sum Kral beat some of the biggest names in the industry with this project. Ristevsku is the first in the premium cigar industry to combine CBD and tobacco into one product. There are other CBD cigars out there, but not in the premium segment. If the JSK Nuggs will make it across the pond is a question mark at the moment. Jas Sum Kral has distribution partners in several international markets.
