In its early days, the vaporizer (or e-cigarette) became a popular option for those looking to quit smoking. Instead of inhaling smoke and nicotine, users could now inhale a nicotine-rich vapor to feel the same effect. The evolution of the vaporizer has taken on a new identity over the past few years, with some excluding the ingredient nicotine altogether to appeal to an audience of non-smokers. As of today, there are vaporizers on the market that specialize in essential oil blends, herb blends and the popular CBD oil.
Vaping CBD-infused juice is becoming more common—and for good reason. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to create therapeutic effects including anti-anxiety, anti-inflammation and pain management. Types of CBD oil products on the market comprise of tinctures, salves, capsules, isolates and topicals, but vaporizers seem to be the quickest form to take effect.
Here are ten of the most frequently asked questions regarding vaping CBD oil:
Is Vaping CBD Safe?
Yes, vaping with a high-quality CBD oil is considered safe with little to no toxicity. When it comes to vaping CBD oil, safety largely depends on the quality of the product and its ingredients. Vaping itself is merely inhaling a liquid in its vapor form, which is perfectly safe. It’s worth researching the ingredients in the CBD liquid you are considering purchasing to ensure there aren’t any potential harmful chemicals in the juice. Strong or excessive chemicals can irritate your lungs or dilute the CBD.
While usually rare, it’s worth noting that some users may have a potential allergy to the materials of the vaporizer.
Will it Make You High?
No, CBD does not contain any psychoactive effects and will not make you “high.” This is one of the main differences between cannabidiol and marijuana. CBD is one of the 80 plus active ingredients found in the hemp plant, a subspecies of the cannabis sativa family. It’s mind-altering counterpart—THC—is the compound that gives marijuana users a high. Since the CBD is extracted from the plant, it contains no (or only trace amounts of) THC.
Where Can You Buy CBD Vape Juice?
Purchasing from a reputable CBD vendor is the best option. Since the Food and Drug Administration does not currently regulate the CBD industry, it’s hard to know exactly what you are getting in products when it comes to quality ingredients—or CBD at all for that matter. With that said, read reviews and do research before purchasing CBD from a company to ensure you know exactly what you are paying for.
Will it Appear on a Drug Test?
In short, CBD should not cause you to fail a drug test. Drug screenings look for the cannabinoid THC to see if a person has been using marijuana. However, if a user is consuming more than 1,000 mg of CBD per day (the average is 120 to 160), trace amounts of THC may trigger a false positive. This isn’t something most users will have to worry about as long as the THC level is less than 0.3 percent, which is the legal limit for CBD products.
What Does it Feel Like?
While THC can make you feel sluggish, drowsy or hungry, users typically have a different experience when using CBD. When the CBD oil interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system, it can lift your mood, relieve chronic pain, and induce a state of relaxation. Vaping CBD has an advantage over other forms of CBD since it acts quicker in the system. After entering your lungs, it travels right into the bloodstream. Effects are felt within minutes.
What’s the Difference Between CBD Oil and Hemp Oil?
Hemp oil is too vague when used on its own, since it could mean two different types of oils. With an array of products and names on the market, it can be hard to differentiate products and benefits. CBD can come from the hemp or the marijuana plant. In the case of purchasing CBD online, CBD oil labeling is the same as full-spectrum hemp, since full-spectrum means it comes from the stalks, leaves and buds of the hemp plant. On the other hand—hemp seed oil—extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant, does not contain CBD.
If you are looking for a CBD-rich product, make sure to look for “full-spectrum hemp” or “CBD” on the label.
Can You Vape a CBD Tincture?
No, you should not vape a CBD tincture. Tinctures are not made for refillable vaporizers. They are meant to be taken sublingually. If you are looking to vape CBD, look for CBD-infused vape juice or CBD oil vape liquid.
Which Vape Pen is Best for CBD?
There are different types of vaporizers you can purchase. Two of the popular options are refillable CBD vapes or disposable CBD vapes. Disposable vapes have a shelf life and include the CBD cartridge as part of the product. On the other hand, you can purchase a vape that has a refillable cartridge for CBD e-liquid. It depends on overall preference.
How Do I Know My Dose?
There is not a universal dose for every person, since so many factors are involved. A few of these factors include CBD concentration, body size and the condition being treated. A good rule of thumb is to take 1 to 6 mg of CBD per 10 pounds of body weight. This number may vary depending on the individual’s level of pain. For example, if you are 150 pounds, it is recommended that you take somewhere between 15 and 20 mg of CBD per dose. Usually, the vendor’s website will have a recommended dosing guide, specifically for their line of products. It’s always a good idea to speak with your doctor if you are unsure of the dose or if you are taking existing medications.
Is CBD Legal in My State?
Yes, CBD oil is legal in all 50 states as long as the product is derived from a licensed industrial hemp farm, with THC levels less than 0.3 percent.
