CBD is the abbreviation of Cannabidiol, a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical and does not give users a ‘high’. Although only extracted recently, CBD has quickly grown in popularity and is currently being researched in relation to a wide range of health issues, including anxiety, chronic pain relief and insomnia. If you’re interested in how to vape CBD juice, we have the answers to all your questions.
Why should I choose to vape CBD?
There’s a wide variety of CBD products currently available, including topical creams, orally ingested pills and drops, and even snacks like gummy bears. So, why should you vape CBD? The answer lies in bioavailability. This is the proportion of a substance which actually enters into circulation in the body and has an active effect. A WHO Critical Review Report on CBD from 2018 reported that aerosolised CBD yielded “higher bioavailability than oral administration.” CBD taken orally has slow delivery and an estimated bioavailability of 6%. In comparison, vaporised CBD is rapidly delivered and has a reported average bioavailability of 31%. This means that vaping is a much more effective method of taking CBD. However, this is only based on the current research, which is very limited.
The outbreak of EVALI in the USA during 2019 caused concern regarding vaping and e-cigarette products. The cases have now been strongly linked to Vitamin E Acetate, which was used as an additive in e-cigarette products containing THC. Due to the extraction process for CBD, the levels of THC present in our CBD e-liquids are non-detectable and we never use Vitamin E Acetate.
How do I determine CBD Dosage?
CBD e-liquids do not contain nicotine, but the method of measuring the levels of CBD in an e-liquid are very similar, which makes them easy to understand. CBD strength is measured in milligrams. A 100mg strength CBD e-liquid contains 100mg of CBD in total. A 10ml bottle of 100mg strength CBD e-liquid will contain 10mg of CBD in every ml of vape juice. All LiQuid CBD e-liquids are sold in 10ml bottles, which means that as long as you know the size of your vape tank, it will be easy to work out your daily CBD intake.
The FSA recommend that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg of CBD a day. Although it is a naturally occurring chemical, CBD has only been extracted and sold as a separate product very recently. Much more research is still needed to determine all the side effects it could have. The FSA also recommends not using CBD at all while pregnant, breastfeeding or regularly taking medication. It is recommended that you talk to a doctor before using any CBD products to ensure that they are suitable and safe for you to use. However, it is important to recognise that CBD products, including our e-liquids, are not registered as medicines and should not be used to treat illnesses.
What CBD strength should I use?
The best CBD strength to use really depends on personal preference. Make sure to consider how often you are planning to vape and what results you are hoping to achieve from vaping CBD, as well as the FSA recommendation to not exceed a daily dose of 70mg. It is always better to start vaping CBD with a lower strength, as you can always increase the strength of your CBD vape juice after you discover the effects it may have on you. Some people have reported side effects from CBD, such as dry mouth, hunger, red eyes and sleepiness. If you notice any of these side effects while vaping CBD, you may want to decrease the strength of the CBD e-liquid you use or speak to your doctor.
How do I choose a CBD vape juice?
The first things to consider when choosing a CBD vape juice are what dosage of CBD you want to take, and which strength e-liquid will allow you to achieve that. When you’ve worked this out, you can enjoy selecting the flavour of your CBD vape juice. If you already vape with nicotine, you may already have flavours you know you enjoy. At LiQuid, our CBD e-liquids are blended with popular, existing flavours, so keep an eye open for your favourites. We’ve also developed a CBD shot that is flavourless, allowing you to vape CBD with any of our 0mg Shortfill flavours.
How do I vape CBD?
Vaping CBD is as easy as vaping any other e-liquid! Make sure to clean out the tank of your device, or consider buying a separate device for vaping CBD if you also vape with nicotine e-liquids. Start out with small puffs and wait for 5-10 minutes. This will allow you to get an idea of how the CBD will affect you. The best advice is to start slow and work your way up to the dosage and effect that you want. There’s no rush, and it’s impossible to unvape any puffs you’ve already taken!
