If you're new to CBD and are yet to try the popular natural supplement that has taken the world by storm, then it is more than likely that you'll have a few questions that you're keen to have answered before you start.
What does CBD stand for? What's the difference between CBD oil and CBD vape oil? Should you vape CBD? But more pressing perhaps, is, how will vaping CBD make you feel?
WHAT IS CBD?
You may have heard your friends and family utter this three-letter initialism in conversation, but I bet you're wondering, what on earth CBD is. Rather than the Central Business District that you may have swooned through from time to time, CBD in this instance refers to the now hugely popular cannabis extract cannabidiol. One of over a hundred known cannabinoids found to exist in the family of plants associated with cannabis, CBD is a chemical compound that doesn't get you high like its cannabinoid counterpart, THC.
Known to support your wellbeing and healthy functioning of your organs, many use CBD as a supplement, much like they would their daily dose of vitamin C, magnesium or iron. In fact, CBD has become so popular that you're now likely to find the compound as a featured ingredient in numerous household items. From beauty products such as moisturisers and lip balms to food and drink items like chocolate, water and beer; CBD is being used by millions of people around the world daily.

CBD OIL VS. CBD VAPE OIL
Upon perusing the wealth of CBD products that are available to you both online and on the high street, before buying, you must be able to distinguish the difference between CBD oil and CBD vape oil (also known as CBD e-liquid). While they both will contain CBD, if you misuse them, you will more than likely be a little disappointed, as well as left feeling a little queasy.
CBD oil is designed to be used in several ways, but its primary function is to be taken sublingually by placing a few drops directly under your tongue. Held for up to 90 seconds before swallowing, any remaining oil that hasn't been absorbed by your mucus glands (known for their particularly direct access to your bloodstream).
As such, a few drops of CBD oil can also be added to your favourite food and drink items as a way to provide a more flavourful experience for you. Blended with organic olive oil; concentrations of CBD sourced from high-grade hemp extract are then added. This means as well as ingesting the oil; you can also use its topically on your skin and enjoy all the benefits a relaxing massage can bring.
Vaping CBD oil, as opposed to CBD vape oil, will damage your vaporiser and undoubtedly affect your experience and opinion of using CBD.
CBD vape oil is explicitly designed for low powered e-cigarettes or vape pens, and as such should only be used by those who already vape. A tool that has enabled millions of smokers to quit smoking, vaping typically includes nicotine-based, flavoured e-liquid that simulates the experience of smoking while also curbing any nicotine cravings.
Vaping CBD vape oil is an excellent alternative to nicotine-based e-liquids and more importantly contains no nicotine whatsoever. Where CBD oil is made from CBD and olive oil, CBD Vape oil contains cannabidiol and a blend of Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG); the two staple liquid carriers used for traditional e-liquid. Designed solely to vape, ingesting this liquid will more than likely leave you feeling a little queasy. If you do not vape, then it is highly recommended that you do not start.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO VAPING CBD?
As mentioned, CBD will not get you high like THC is known for. However, any effect that CBD does have on you will vary from person to person depending on a wide variety of factors. From CBD concentration to some more personal aspects such as weight and size, the good news is that any side effects you do experience from vaping CBD Vape oil will be minimal.
CBD is sold in a variety of concentrations that range from 100mg to 1500mg per 10ml bottle. As such, it is always recommended that you start at the lower end of the spectrum of strengths, and work your way up as your body becomes more tolerant to CBD.
