Make sure you know the difference between CBD oil (sometimes called a CBD tincture) and CBD vape juice. No, vaping CBD won't put you. Most CBD formulated for vaping is derived from industrial hemp. However, it may contain traces of THC (up to 0.3%).
But that's not enough to get you high. You May Feel Very Relaxed, But Not Drugged. CBD oil is usually a drop that is put on or under the tongue, for example, to release CBD. The oil is not suitable for vaping or inhaling and should not be used in this way at all.
If you are considering vaping CBD oil as a way to address a medical problem, talk to your doctor first. The risks associated with vaping and CBD oil are significant and may not provide the benefits you want. CBD tinctures are liquid cannabidiol (CBD) products made for oral ingestion. At Hollyweed we use “tincture” and “oil” to refer to the same thing, but it's important to note that we don't refer to vaping juice.
CBD tinctures are prepared by soaking hemp extract in a liquid. Tinctures are classically made with alcohol. Alcohol would efficiently transport the beneficial substance throughout our body (that's why we call it a “carrier”). Today, many manufacturers use food oils such as olive or coconut oil as carriers.
Hollyweed CBD oil is alcohol-free. By soaking hemp in a liquid and applying it on a low heat, natural cannabinoids are infused into the liquid, resulting in CBD oil. Some tinctures are combined with other valuable ingredients, such as hemp seed oil, to create a CBD product that maximizes its efficiency and benefits. When we consume CBD, it enters our body and reacts with cannabinoid receptors to boost the functions of our endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS is one of the most critical systems in our body, responsible for regulating sleep, mood, memory, appetite and digestion. Although hemp is considered a cannabis plant, it is very different from its cousin marijuana. Marijuana has high levels of THC, the compound responsible for giving you high and intoxicating sensations. Hemp has low THC and high amounts of CBD, which isn't psychoactive and shouldn't leave you high.
Many people have switched to using CBD products because they offer a wide range of benefits and very few side effects. Most people tolerate CBD exceptionally well and rarely experience adverse effects. Reported side effects are usually minor and go away quickly. While CBD tinctures are made for oral ingestion, vaping oils are designed to be heated and inhaled as a vapor.
Some brands may refer to their vapable liquids as “oil,” but at Hollyweed we try to avoid referring to vaporizer juice as oil. This is to avoid confusion between CBD tincture (often called CBD oil, not safe for vaping) and vaping juice (often called e-juice, safe for vaping). Inhaling smoke or vapor is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to feel the effects of CBD. The bioavailability of inhalation is approximately 40% and the effects are activated almost immediately.
However, the tradeoff is that the effects don't last as long as tinctures (3-4 hours). You should never vape CBD oil because vape pens are not designed for the compounds within the tincture. Doing so could ruin your vaporizer and potentially burn the product. The essential oils contained in the CBD tincture are not designed to heat up, and inhaling their vapors could be toxic.
Many CBD oils are also made with various chemicals or preservatives that may not be safe for vaping. As a general rule, it's always best to read the ingredient label of any product you consume to know what you're putting into your body. Another great introduction to vaping is refillable vape pens. The cartridges that contain the CBD vape juice are usually replaceable, making them extremely easy to exchange for new ones once they are empty.
You won't have to worry about cleaning or maintenance with these vape pens. Whether you're vaping CBD or using tincture drops, there's no wrong method to enjoy CBD. However, it is essential to learn that CBD vape juice and CBD tincture are two different products that should not be exchanged. Vaping CBD tincture can be extremely dangerous and harmful to your body.
You can put a few drops directly in your mouth, or you can even mix them with food or tea. As long as you don't expose it to temperatures above 320℉ (160℃), you can even cook with it. Unfortunately, however, there is very little regulatory oversight of CBD oil in general, even though vaping is one of the most popular ways to use the oil. And where these two categories overlap in CBD vaporizers is a gray area that is ready to be exploited at the risk of consumers' health.
In fact, the use of this oil in vape pens is becoming increasingly popular and the industry is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years, according to Brightfield Group, a company that studies the CBD market. While you can use your favorite vaping mod to inhale CBD and relax after a long day, many users report that they prefer to use a small pen rather than a bulky mod. To make matters worse, this lack of certification has led people to sell vaping liquid that they claim contains CBD oil when in fact it contains harmful chemicals, harming and killing people in the process. In fact, thanks to no-man's land regulation, consumer madness, and manufacturers who dilute the extract with oils better suited for salad dressings, CBD vaporizers are especially risky.
While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been struggling to research and regulate both CBD and vaping separately, the agency has allowed manufacturers to flood the market with both types of products. Some users simply like to mix CBD vaping oil with their favorite e-juice to get the best of both worlds. It's also potentially quite dangerous, and that's also true when it comes to vaping cannabidiol, the popular cannabis-derived compound known as CBD.
One of the most recent trends impacting this growing vaping culture is the desire to vape cannabidiol (CBD) oil. . .
