The ultimate guide to Vaping CBD
This comprehensive guide should explain everything you need to know about vaping CBD.
Why has it become such a popular addition to vape juice?
Can vaping CBD oil e-liquid get you high?
I think that the first thing we need to clear up before we go any further is this: vaping CBD e liquid will not get you high! It contains no psychoactive properties. Has no negative influence on your mind or your behaviour. It has many amazing qualities (more on that later), but getting you stoned is not one of them.
If you are looking for a vape liquid that will get you high, you need to look for one that contains Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However, you won’t find any on our site as the THC component of cannabis is still classified as a Class B controlled drug in the UK, and therefore illegal to sell and to purchase.
Is CBD oil legal in the UK?
The law changed on 13th October 2016 in the UK to recognise CBD as a medicine. Numerous studies have been carried out, and standards have been established to ensure the quality and safety of CBD, and protect people’s health and well-being. Any CBD containing product is now legally considered by the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) to be medicinal.
What is CBD oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 active cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is second only to THC for its abundance within the plant, and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s make-up.
Keep your balance – the benefits of CBD oil
The cannabinoids found in cannabis have been shown to offer therapeutic benefits for numerous conditions associated with an imbalance in the body’s homeostasis. However, it has also been discovered that CBD, in particular, has the ability to influence a wider range of receptors than just the cannabinoid variety. This may be the reason that it is showing results across such a wide range of medical uses. These include:
Anxiety and panic disorder
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Type 1 diabetes
The clinical trials continue; and researchers are also looking into the effects of CBD on alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, obesity, epilepsy, respiratory diseases, and even cancer.
There is also evidence to suggest that CBD can increase the levels of the body’s own endocannabinoids. CBD obstructs the enzymes that break them down. As cannabinoid deficiency can be implicated in a number of age-related illnesses, this is particularly positive news.
Does CBD oil have any negative effects?
There is still little long-term data available on the negative implications of CBD. However, many short-term trials have found that CBD is well tolerated in adults across a wide range of doses.
To date, there have been no significant side effects to the central nervous system, or effects on the mood or vital signs of users.
Some people have reported feelings of tiredness and/or changes to appetite.
Where is the CBD oil in e-liquid extracted from?
The CBD that can be found in our range of CBD vape juice is extracted from the least processed part of the cannabis plant, known as hemp.
Hemp and marijuana both come from the cannabis sativa plant, but they are very different.
Hemp has a long history of use, including hemp seed oil and hemp fibres for rope and blankets. Unlike marijuana, it is not grown for its buds. The buds of the cannabis sativa plant are where you will find the majority of the THC compound. Since hemp contains much higher amounts of the required CBD, hemp is the perfect source of CBD oil extraction.
Why does CBD oil work so well in e-cigarettes?
CBD oil vaporises at approximately 200℃ which is perfect for use within an e-cig. It is also nicotine free, and does not produce a high.
In conjunction with vaping, there is promising evidence that CBD use may help people to quit smoking. A pilot study posted to Addictive Behaviours found that smokers who used an inhaler containing the CBD compound smoked fewer cigarettes but did not have any additional craving for nicotine.
When you inhale the CBD vapor, you’re allowing compounds originally produced by a plant to enter your body, travel through your bloodstream and finally enter your brain. Other than intravenous application, it is one of the fastest methods of getting the benefits from the CBD oil.
What strength of CBD oil should I vape?
When you first select an vape liquid containing nicotine to help you to quit smoking. The advice is to start with a dose that most closely resembles your smoking habit, and work your way down.
However, with vape juice containing CBD oil, the advice is entirely the opposite.
Start with a vape liquid containing the lowest dose of CBD oil because Vaping CBD has an immediate effect, you’ll be able to tell whether it has the desired outcome. However, Be mindful of the effects of the dose before taking more as this will prevent you from raising your tolerance too quickly and will allow you to figure out what the right dose is for you.
What is the difference between CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum CBD?
This is a question that we’ve started to be asked since we introduced a range of Full Spectrum CBD vape liquids into our range.
To cover it in full detail we’ve created a guide dedicated to the subject in order to help you make an informed decision about your CBD vaping requirements.
