In case you haven’t noticed, there is an entire wave of marijuana legalisation efforts going on across the world (Hemp is often confused with marijuana but they are grown/cultivated in a totally different way). The most publicised efforts are those in America, where medical marijuana is now legal in about half of the country. More than that, recreational marijuana has also become legal in a handful of states and there are surely more to come. Suffice to say, the taboo around marijuana and hemp is quickly falling by the wayside.
Perhaps one of the biggest beneficiaries of this movement are indeed the medical aspects of cannabis and the potential impact of the terpenes and flavonoids on the human body whether it be stress or acne. While it might have been permitted to conduct some research before, this new way in which the world is approaching marijuana has opened up a great deal more flexibility with this topic. Researchers have been at it trying to understand and replicate the medicinal effects of cannabis without the intoxicating aspects.
One result has been the rise of so-called CBD oil. Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of 60 compounds occurring in cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. Another one is THC, which as you may know is the “psycho-active” compound that has kept a lot of researchers from really studying the medicinal uses. Until recently, the taboo of “getting stoned” has gotten in the way.
Yet CBD doesn’t produce the affect that THC has on us. That means users do not “get stoned” when they take CBD, making it easier to study. More and more evidence has piled up in favour of CBD and how it can help alleviate a wide range of conditions and symptoms. One of the most written about is the power of CBD to suppress seizures in people who suffer from epilepsy.
These positive and medicinal elements to the cannabis-based CBD oil has started to change how it is seen and allowed for its usage in many countries. Thankfully, after a long wait, CBD has finally been classified as medicine in the UK.
Vapour Popular for CBD Oil
Now that this hurdle has finally been overcome, we can finally let the cat out of the bag. We can now say that despite CBD not being legal for so long, there were many people already using it. Especially in extreme cases, it must have seemed unreasonable to ask people not to use CBD oil for vaping when it was helping them or a loved one from suffering.
Because we already know that people were using CBD oil, there is an understanding of how they were using it too. There are, of course, different way to take in CBD oil. Some people would smoke it, using such items as a water bong. Others would mix it in with foods and create edible versions of their favourite foods infused with CBD. For some, dripping a few drops of concentrated CBD oil under their tongue did the trick.
And then there is vapour. With the rise of vapour products, more and more people have understood the benefits not only of making the switch but of using it for various needs. Vaping CBD oil has itself become quite popular, offering all of the positive effects of CBD without many of the negative ones, especially when compared to smoking CBD oil.
Using CBD oil in your vapour device is as easy as it is popular. Just make sure your favourite vapour device is compatible with oils or wax. Vaping is one of the most popular ways for absorbing CBD, because it generally has an immediate effect and tastes great. It’s certainly not the only method and it isn’t for everyone, but it can be an excellent way to get your CBD.
As CBD and other cannabis oils are researched and popularised, expect to see an even greater surge of those reaching for a premium vaping device. It seems that vapour has become the go-to, to help change people’s lifestyle. This hasn’t gone unnoticed by us, and we’re happy that the vapour movement continues to make inroads in so many different ways.
