What Is CBD Oil?

CBD is a cannabinoid and is one of the many compounds produced by the cannabis plant. In fact, it is actually one of the two most common substances, with the other being THC. Unlike THC, CBD does not contain psychoactive properties that get you high when ingested.

CBD oil extracted from the hemp plant, specifically from low resin agricultural hemp from pedigree seeds. Hemp is used over other cannabis plants because up to 40% of CBD can be extracted from it. This number is significant compared to other plants.

With this in mind, CBD is the second most abundant compound produced by the hemp plant. The most abundant is THC, meaning this is the reason why people think that CBD oil can make you high. However, this is not the case.

During the extraction process, CBD is isolated from THC in order to satisfy government regulations before being sold. All CBD oil products must not contain more than 0.3% THC in order to be sold legally.

Another reason why hemp is used over other cannabis plants is that it has lower resin levels. This is important as it’s necessary to cover regulations, in that any resin that comes from any part of a marijuana plant is deemed illegal.

A lot of farmers actually think CBD oil as a byproduct of industrial hemp used for a variety of other purposes, such as producing paper and rope. Some will even sell unused hemp to those that want to extract the CBD oil, but there are others that are starting to extract it themselves as a ‘dual-purpose’ practice.

 

What Is CBD Vape Juice?

CBD vape juice is a mixture of CBD oil and carrier liquid designed to be used with a vaporizer, a device that heats up the oil to produce a CBD-filled vapor for inhaling.

There is a wide range of CBD vape juice flavors available that can emphasize the hemp texture or come as fruity and exotic sensations.

Vaping is one of the most popular ways to consume CBD oil as it can get into the bloodstream quicker than other methods, so the effects can be felt and enjoyed at a much faster rate. It also avoids breaking down the cannabinoids, unlike when it’s passed through the digestive system.

 

How To Vape CBD Oil Effectively?

To vape CBD oil effectively, you must first determine your dosage, choose your vape and your flavor.

Determine Your CBD Oil Dosage

There are a few factors to take into account before you can determine how much you should take, such as your height, weight and, if you are using CBD oil for medical purposes, the severity of your condition.

If you are new to vaping CBD oil, you must start with the smallest possible dosage. If you don’t feel the effects, gradually increase your dosage until you can. 

It’s best to start small as if you do too much, your body will remove it from your system – and it won’t be a pleasant experience.

Choose Your CBD Vape

Does Vaping CBD Oil Get You High?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions around CBD oil. The simple answer is no, vaping CBD oil will not get you high. This is because any CBD oil sold must have no more than 0.3% THC present, which is not enough to impact on your brain, so no matter how much you vape, you will not get high.

If anything, your lungs will give out before enough THC is absorbed before you would feel the effects. This means that anyone taking CBD oil for medical reasons do not have to worry about their mental clarity or capacity.

But even though CBD does not have any psychoactive effects, you will still be able to feel it working once you take it. Once it is taken into the lungs, it is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream so even after one or two puffs of your device, you will notice the CBD.

How Safe Is It To Vape CBD Oil?

safe cbd

In its purest form, vaping is simply heating up a substance to a point where it creates vapor to inhale. In theory, this shouldn’t do much harm at all but when you inhale something as opposed to eating it, the risks involved can change.

Vaping CBD oil is safe but there are some risks you need to be aware of. Because it’s much more efficient at getting the CBD into your system, you should always err on the side of caution with vaping.

The strength of vaping CBD is claimed to be around four times as much as compared to other ways to take it but there is no real evidence to back this up as of yet. So while the benefits can be felt much better, the same could also be said with regards to the potential side effects of vaping CBD.

The biggest risk with vaping CBD is the dosage. There are currently no standards set by authorities so there is nothing to go by except for the suggestions of the CBD companies themselves. 

The nature of vaping itself is another risk of CBD vaping. It’s not fully understood yet so again, it’s important to be aware of this.

 

CBD Vaping Side Effects

side effects

The previous section mentioned there are some side effects of CBD vaping. While they are not extreme and will not do serious harm, here the most common side effects of CBD vaping: 

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • More irritable
  • Change or loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea

While these side effects are common, they are usually only temporary. Compared to the possible side effects of other medications, they are considered minor. For example, it’s better to feel slightly nauseous than many of the side effects you would feel from traditional medicine.

One way that CBD oil is used is to help relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety. Prescribed drugs for these conditions can result in insomnia, increased anxiety and stress, sexual dysfunction and more. Because of all these possible side effects, a lot of people stay away from traditional medicine. In their eyes, the negatives far outweigh the positives.

Common CBD Vaping Mistakes

vaping mistakes

Here are some of the most common CBD vaping mistakes and how to avoid them.

Not Looking At Concentration Levels

At first glance, it can be easy to convince yourself that you’ve found a great deal: getting a 100ml bottle of vape juice containing 25mg of CBD, while you could have got only 10ml with 25mg of CBD.

However, the 10ml bottle has a higher concentration of CBD compared to the 100ml bottle. So while the big bottle looks like the best option, the CBD will be too diluted and you won’t feel the effects, if at all.

If you want to spend more money, base it on the amount of CBD rather than the vape juice.

Confusing Hemp Oil With CBD Oil

This is a very common CBD vaping mistake. Hemp oil is not the same as CBD oil. People get confused because it sounds the same but it tends to be much cheaper than CBD oil.

However, hemp oil contains little to no CBD at all. This is what makes it so cheap.

Vaping Pure CBD Oil

CBD oil is not for vaping.CBD oil is an oil and oil isn’t meant to be vaped.

The product to vape is CBD vape juice. Do not vape anything else apart from CBD vape juice.

Don’t Buy CBD With Nicotine

CBD degrades when it is mixed with nicotine. If you find CBD vape juice with nicotine, stay away from it. You are wasting your money and you will be harming your CBD vaping experience.

If you smoke and want to vape, keep it separate from your CBD.

Using A Large CBD Kit

This final CBD vaping mistake will prevent you from using a large vape kit. Big tanks and large coils will make your CBD seep out of the holes. 

This is because CBD vape juice is a lot thinner than normal VG vape juice so your device will be prone to leakage. Stick to the devices we mentioned earlier and you will do just fine.
