I'm looking into getting my dad to try CBD in a nebulizer as he's just come out of the hospital with a serious chest infection, they thought he had covid, but all 3 tests came back negative. Can you even put CBD oil in a nebulizer?
He has agreed to give CBD a try as he has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and I want to see if it will help him. Will CBD help COPD? He has already had the same lung collapse twice in the span of 4 years, and 2 heart attacks in the past year with 4 stents placed in the main heart vessels. He knows he's dying, and we all know he's not going to get better; since then I've started researching cannabinoids and medicinal cannabis.
As I've mentioned: I'm looking for the best recommendations of CBD oil, he is in a lot of pain, constantly breathless. Also, what would the best cannabis oil dosage be for COPD?
We're not ready to say goodbye yet.
Please help, and thank you.

There is no enough research to prove that CBD can cure chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), although the early signs are encouraging. Early research shows that CBD can help COPD patients breathe more easily by opening up the bronchial passages. Some individuals who have used CBD for COPD have reported positive results.
Before using CBD on COPD, you should be very careful especially since there isn't enough research on this subject. Advocates of CBD nebulizers say it is the safest method of taking CBD products. There are several advantages of using nebulizers, just as there are also disadvantages. One advantage is that nebulizers can deliver CBD without combustion. Another advantage is the higher and faster bioavailability of CBD emulsions. A disadvantage is that nebulizers can only work with special emulsions since most CBD oils are hydrophobic. If you want to use a nebulizer, you should go for special CBD oils with suitable chemistry that can work with a nebulizer.
Apply extra caution before taking CBD for COPD. See a doctor before taking CBD products along with any other prescribed drugs as CBD products can affect the metabolism of some drugs. Do not stop your medication because of any CBD product as this may be dangerous. Consult your doctor before taking any action to avoid further complications.

There are several ways you can consume your daily dosage of CBD oil. One method, putting CBD oil in a nebulizer, has gained popularity in recent years.
Let me take you through some of the pros and cons of nebulizing your CBD oil and recommended CBD oil that you can use. Also, I’ll take you through cautions and warnings you should keep in mind if you decide to nebulize your CBD oil.
CBD oils and nebulizers
Before you nebulize your CBD oil, it's important you understand that nebulizers diffuse water-soluble preparations. Oils are aquaphobic, meaning they don't mix with water. For this reason, it's hard to nebulize your CBD oil.
Thus if you want to nebulize your CBD oil, you have to use the nanoencapsulation method. In this, CBD emulsion is loaded into a jet nebulizer and is converted to tiny fine droplets like mist.
Advantages of nebulizing your CBD oil
Although vaping and nebulizing may provide a faster method for CBD absorption, the latter doesn't use heating. This means that intake doesn't change the chemical composition of CBD except for its physical state.
It provides an easier way to ingest CBD without irritating the throat and lung issues. This is helpful to individuals suffering from lung complications.
You evade the risks of decomposition and deposition of harmful compounds associated with vaping and smoking CBD through nebulizing.
Disadvantages of using CBD oil in a nebulizer
Expensive to purchase a special CBD nebulizer.
The cost of CBD emulsion is higher than that of CBD oil per dose.
If you can afford to purchase the CBD nebulizer and emulsion, you can now realize the full health benefits of a diffused CBD in managing COPD and asthma.
