What You Need to Know About Vaping CBD
Published May 26, 2021.
Vaping is not something new. It has been around for more than a decade, but it has gained increased popularity in recent years as laws on cannabis continue to change in the UK and worldwide.
That being the case, different products have flooded the market, making it hard for consumers to choose the right products for their bodies. Below we take you through the crucial things you need to know about vaping CBD.
What Is a Vapouriser?
A vapouriser is a device that permits CBD users to vapourise cannabis instead of smoking it, offering a discrete way to consume it.
It contains a battery that helps power the atomiser, heating the coils or wicks to vapourise the vape product without combustion. As a result, the liquid or concentrate is turned into a vapour that is easy to inhale and enter the bloodstream.
Is Vaping CBD Safe?
Cases of people getting sick or, worse, dying after using low-quality vape products are not uncommon. There has also been the question of whether vaping is safe for your lungs.
However, you can avoid most of this problem by only buying vape products from reputable suppliers. Ideally, you should only buy legal lab-tested products to reduce the chances of using substandard vape products.
Which CBD Products Can You Vape?
CBD users have different options for vaping CBD. For one, you may decide to go for CBD e-liquids (these can either be flavourless or flavoured). Other options are CBD oil and CBD concentrate products like CBD isolate.
It is important to note that not all CBD oil products are designed for inhalation. As such, you should only vape products that are meant for vapourisation to avoid bodily harm.
Vaping CBD Oil vs. CBD Flower
Vaping CBD provides different experiences depending on how you consume it. For instance, vaping CBD flower will give a dose with less CBD concentration than CBD oil.
However, since it hasn’t lost any cannabinoids, terpenes, or other active ingredients through extraction, it provides a complete experience.
On the other hand, CBD oil provides a higher concentration of CBD because the compound is extracted. Some companies add terpenes to the CBD oil after the extraction process to improve the flavor.
Both the oil and the flower will provide the therapeutic properties of CBD. However, CBD oil remains the easiest and discreet method of consuming CBD.
It's no surprise that vaping has gained popularity, especially for its convenience and the theory that it can provide fast relief from sudden panic attacks, anxiety, and pain. However, to ensure your safety, always look for high-quality products from reputable suppliers.
