However, vaping can present unique benefits that both new and experienced CBD users should consider.
Since the internet is bombarded with all sorts of information regarding CBD, we know for some it can be a little overwhelming. With this in mind, we have put together some information to clear any confusion about vaping and and present the benefits it has to offer. If you are considering trying CBD vape, then this guide will help answer any questions you may have and hopefully give you an insight on vaping CBD.
What is Vaping?
Vaping hit the markets during the early 2000's and grew into a phenomenon worldwide. Unlike traditional smoking, users of vaping inhale and exhale a 'vapor'.
The devices used to vape contain a mouthpeice, a cartridge, a heating component and a battery. The e-liquid or e-juice may or may not contain nicotine. The choice is completely up to you. Vaping does not contain tobacco, which is why the trend has been so popular, especially for those looking for an alternative to cigarettes.
The heating component of the vaporiser pulls energy from the battery to heat the e-liquid. When you inhale the vapor travels through the vaporisers air path to create clouds. Vaping does not create second hand smoke, rather it creates a second hand aerosol. Unlike regular tobacco and cigarettes, vaporisers typically produce a pleasant odor. Whilst the vapor produced looks thicker than smoke, it quickly dissipates leaving nothing.
Majority of people only use e-liquids in a vaporiser, but you can also use other materials such as dry herbs and waxy concentrates.
Vaping with CBD Oil
CBD is used in vaporisers for a number of different reasons. It could be they are former cigeratte smokers and are wanting to give up, they dislike the taste of the oral CBD drops or they find that vaping CBD works best for them. An alternative to oil drops, some people simply prefer the experience of vaping CBD.
For vapers, the CBD Oil can be enhanced with a variety of flavours to make the experience much more enjoyable. You will find CBD in bottles or cartridges, depending on the vaporiser you are using. If your vaporiser has adjustable heat settings you can tweak them to experiement with yeilding highest concentration of CBD vapor. Some may also find that they have to keep their setting below a certain temperature to ensure they dont burn the terpenes found within the CBD vape oil.
What is in a CBD E-Liquid?
CBD e-liquids contain either a full spectrum CBD oil or an Isolate CBD. Often at times, manufacturers blend the extract with a carrier liquid, such as an MCT oil. Most vape liquids contain vegetable glycol (VG), propylene glycol (PG), or a mixture of both. PG and VG are popular for different reasons. PG creates a stronger throat hit and VG creates thicker clouds. E-liquids that do not contain VG or PG require a different carrier liquid, such as MCT oil.
Flavouring is also a common addititive in CBD e-liquids. Some manufacturers use artificial flavouring, while others opt for a more natural flavouring such as Terpenes.
The Benefits of Vaping CBD
Inhalation has a higher bioavailability than other methods of consumption. When vaporised, CBD enters directly into the blood stream through the lungs and is not processed anywhere else in the body. This allows for a high percentage of CBD to be absorbed into the bloodstream. This means faster acting results with effects being felt almost instantly. Other methods such as oral drops and edibles can take up to 30-90 minutes before effects take place. As you can imagine, for people wanting quick relief, vaping would be an ideal method.
CBD is not intoxicating. Unlike THC, CBD can produce highly theraputic effects with any intoxicating feelings. Although for some these intoxicating effects are not necessarily a bad thing, there are many people who do not want to feel intoxicated.
Vaping is very discreet. By vaping CBD, it allows users to consume CBD in public and remain discreet. With a vape tank or vape pen, a dose of CBD is never further away then your pocket or bag.
What are the Different Vape Options?
Some vaporisers are catered towards beginners while others take more practise to use. The type of vape pen you choose will be dependent on how experienced you are with vaping and how customised you want your vape experience to be.
When learining how to vape CBD oil, there are three main options to choose from: Pre filled vape pens, Disposable vape pens and Refillable/Tank style vapes.
Pre-Filled CBD Vape Pen
Also known as vape starter kits, these pens are typically catered for beginners. The pre-filled pens have two components, a battery (the base) and a cartridge. They are generally cheap to buy and are very simple to use. Just simply buy whatever cartridge you want, screw it onto the battery and your good to go! Once your done with the cartridge, just throw away and replace with another of your choice. The good thing about pre-filled cartridges is that you can easily swap them if you wanted to. So if you have a few different strains or flavours, then you dont need to finish the cartridge before swapping.
Disposable CBD Vape Pen
A small, stand alone device that is just a little bigger than a cigarette. Disposable vape pens come pre loaded with CBD and have only one compartment. They are cheap, convienent and discreet. They come already loaded with CBD and dont need any charge before using. These devices are easy to use and are ideal if you are wanting to try CBD vape for the first time, travelling or on a night out. Ready to use straight from the packaging, the disposable pens are perfect if your on the go.
Refillable or Tank Style Vapes
Tank style vapes (vape mods) are specialised vaporisers that fit a large amount of oil. They tend to produce large, bellowing vape clouds and are popular with experienced vapers or former smokers. As the tank/chamber is refilled, you can actually experiment and create different blends based on what flavours or terpenes you'd like to add. Vape tanks are also designed to enhance the flavour and longevity of the vaping liquid. This can avoid daily refills.
How Much CBD Should I Vape?
Like other CBD products, the dosage and strength varies from person to person and can be dependent on the outcome you are trying to achieve. However, we can provide recommendations to get you started and help you discover the right serving size for you.
When new to CBD its always best to start off low and work your way up if needed. We recommend starting off with a little in your vape and taking 1-2 inhales as and when needed. This is a good starting point. Continue this for a few days and note how you feel after.
If the results are not what you were hoping for or as expected, then gradually increase the inhales by one every time until you reach the desired effect.
Some considerations to remember is that there are many variations to vaping. For example, the length of your pull will affect how much CBD enters your system. A lengthier pull will introduce more CBD into your body as opposed to a shorter pull. You can try to keep your pulls consistent or experiment with different pull lengths until you find the one that works best for you.
Your situation can also determine how much CBD you will need to consume. You may require more CBD in a situation where you are targeting specific concern. Remember, as you are experimenting with how much CBD to vape, it can help to note how you are feeling beforehand.
