If you’ve recently heard about CBD and are thinking about using the popular food supplement, then you may be wondering how to use it. Along with CBD sublingual oil that can be either placed under the tongue or mixed with food and drink, vaping CBD Vape Oil are two of the most popular choices. If you’re new to vaping, or have been consuming CBD Oil and are keen on some alternative flavour options, then this brief guide to vaping CBD is all you need.
What is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation given to the chemical compound cannabidiol. One of over a hundred chemical compounds called cannabinoids (try saying that in a hurry), which are found predominantly in the Cannabacaceae species of plants.
This family of plants include; the illegal kind of cannabis that is commonly reported, as well as the industrially cultivated hemp plant. The other cannabinoid you may have heard of is THC, which is the cannabinoid known for getting high due to its mind-altering properties. It’s for this reason that cannabis, otherwise known as skunk, weed or grass, has such an infamous reputation and is thus, consequently illegal.
CBD Vape Oil, also known as CBD e-liquid, is similar to the nicotine-based e-juice that smokers will use to substitute their smoking habit, to help them become smoke-free. Rather than nicotine, a concentration of CBD is combined with a blend with common food ingredients Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG). These liquids are used in the majority of e-liquid to help produce visible vapour clouds and enhance flavour profiles.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
Products sold in the UK such as VSAVI’s CBD Vape Oil, contain CBD that has been extracted from legally grown hemp. This means that you can consume CBD legally and free from any fear that you might be doing something naughty.
While the recreational use of cannabis is illegal, it’s versatile cousin, industrial hemp can be legally grown and farmed with a license. For centuries hemp has provided a seemingly endless list of uses due to its hardy and fibrous properties. Hemp can be used for making anything, from building materials and rope, to textiles and paper? During Henry VIII's reign, if you had a certain amount of land, it was illegal not to grow hemp. To provide the textiles and ropes needed for sails on ships, farmers were asked to provide the necessary materials in the name of the king.
Why Should I Vape CBD?
Using CBD products is great for those looking to support a healthy lifestyle naturally. Due to the way a vape pen warms and vaporizers CBD, vaping is considered by many to be one of the fastest ways for your body to absorb the CBD molecules.
If you’ve tried using CBD sublingual oil, then you may know that the natural taste of the oil can be a little earthy. If you want to use CBD but are not so keen on the sublingual oil, then choosing to vape will give you a few more options as far as flavour is concerned. As well as unflavoured CBD vape oil, VSAVI produces not one, but two ranges of flavoured CBD Vape Oil. Choose to compliment your CBD with the aroma of Apple, Strawberry, Mango, Lemon, Peppermint, Peach, Blueberry, Orange or Vanilla.
For an alternative to the perhaps more conventional flavourings, why not try CBD infused with terpenes. An essential oil found in all plants, fruits and vegetables, terpenes is responsible for how our food and drink smells and tastes. From the earthy barbeque flavours of OG Kush to the sweet citrus of Lemon Haze – experience the true taste of nature with these terpene infused e-liquids.
Which Kind of CBD Vape Oil Should I Buy?
Depending on whether you want to experience the natural taste of CBD in all its glory, or fancy adding some flavours to your vape, the all-important rule for which CBD vape oil, is to make sure it’s CBD oil intended for vaping. Also known as CBD e-liquid and CBD e-juice, it is hugely important that you don’t try to vape CBD oil that is intended to be placed under your tongue. This oil is typically used orally or topically and is usually mixed with either olive or coconut oil. Vaping this kind of CBD oil will not only taste super disgusting but will also do damage to your vape pen.
CBD e-liquid is available in several strengths and concentrations. If you've never used CBD before we would always recommend starting on the lower strength of 100mg of CBD per 10ml bottle of e-liquid. If you’re used to using CBD, simply opt for the strength you would usually use.
Aside from strength, your choice of CBD vape oil will be largely down to you and your preferences. Fancy something sweet? Choose a strawberry flavoured CBD e-liquid. Fancy yourself a connoisseur of unusual flavours? Opt for full-spectrum CBD vape oil; a CBD oil that has been produced to include all of the extra nutrients, minerals and flavour that the hemp plant is known for.
Buying a CBD Vape Pen
If you’re new to vaping, then choosing your first vape pen doesn’t need to be a complicated or daunting process. For those keen on a fuss-free experience, choosing Vapour2’s CBD Vape Kit is all you need to start vaping CBD straight away. The kit includes a rechargeable battery, refillable e-liquid tank, USB charger and your choice of CBD e-liquid from VSAVI’s range of vape oil products. A classic e-cigarette style that is both affordable and easy to use.
If you’re looking for a vape pen with a little more style, then something like the XEO Void is available in a range of nine colours that include a chameleon, lime punch and gunmetal grey.
If you vape already, then you will more than likely have a vaporizer at your disposal. If you vape with a box mod, you need to avoid sub-ohm vaping as well as vaping at high temperatures. If you use a vape pen with variable temperature settings, keep your heat on the lowest setting - CBD is best vaped at around the 2000c mark.
How Often Should I Vape CBD?
There are no rules for how little or often you should vape CBD, though a good guideline is to take between 7 to 10 puffs on your vape pen, every three to four hours.
