With the rise in popularity of CBD and vaping, it was only a matter of time before the two became linked. Both have seen booms in popularity over recent years and it’s not hard to see why. But there are still some who don’t know about CBD vape or why its quickly becoming the go-to for many CBD enthusiasts.

What is CBD vape juice?

CBD vape juice is a type of E-Liquid that contains CBD and is meant for use in E-Cigarettes and vaping devices. Also known as CBD vape oil and CBD E-Liquids, these are similar to traditional vape juices except the nicotine is replaced by CBD. You can find CBD vape juice that is used for refillable devices or pre-filled-in disposable devices.

These E-Liquids are made with traditional ingredients such as PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerin) and are combined with CBD (isolate, broad-spectrum, or full spectrum) along with any extra flavourings. CBD vape juice also comes in a variety of strengths. CBD vape juice is used as a way of taking CBD that is both convenient, easy and quick to do.

It’s important to make sure that you are vaping CBD vape liquid and not standard CBD oil. CBD vape products have been designed specifically for vaping and other CBD products like oil drops are not fit for vaping.

Different types of CBD & CBD vape products

There are different types of CBD that can be used in CBD vape products. These include isolate, broad spectrum and full spectrum. Each has its own benefits and reasons for use.

Here at Cali Greens, we chiefly use CBD isolate for our products to provide the purest option of CBD. This type of CBD hosts no other compounds and is purely CBD although we often go the extra step to re-add terpenes for extra benefit.

Broad spectrum style CBD is the version of extract that includes all those extra terpenes and flavonoids present in the hemp plant.

Full spectrum is the complete extract which contains CBD, terpenes, flavonoids and some THC – for a CBD product to be legally sold and used in the UK it must contain less than 0.2% of THC.

Not only this but there are different types of CBD vape products. You can purchase CBD vape juice often in 10ml bottles which are meant for refilling your tank/pod vaping kit. These come in different CBD strengths and often have added flavours to suit your personal tastes.

Likewise, disposable devices have risen in popularity as they are pre-filled devices that are ready to use, on the go. These devices are non-refillable and single-use, filled with CBD vape juice once again with options for strength and flavour. They are commonly picked by newcomers to CBD vape as they require no extra equipment and can be used immediately upon purchase.

Why vaping CBD is the best way to take CBD

You may have already heard but CBD is touted as one of the best methods of taking CBD for several reasons. One, the bioavailability of CBD vape is the highest of all methods including sublingual drops. It doesn’t have to make its way through your digestive system and is absorbed quickly through the membranes in your lungs to enter the bloodstream more rapidly.

Not only this but you inhale a good amount of CBD with each puff, and the quick absorption time, it also means the effects of CBD activate quicker. Other methods of CBD have variable degrees of absorption as many have to pass barriers like the digestive system or layers of skin. It’s for this reason why CBD vape is one of the best methods for taking CBD especially when you need a CBD fix quick.

5 Commonly asked questions about CBD vape products

What does CBD do for you in a vape

CBD is often used as a supplement as part of people’s wellness routine, or for a number of potential benefits that are still being researched but are reported by some users. CBD in a vape is a great way for using CBD quickly and more efficiently than other methods. Some like to take their CBD vape with them on travels, pre or post-workout, and even to work so that users can take a couple of puffs to guide them through the day.

Are CBD vapes illegal in the UK?

CBD and CBD vapes are legal in the UK so long as they do not contain any more than 0.2% of THC. At the moment CBD cannot be used for medicinal purposes due to a lack of research but is instead used as a supplement.

Is vaping CBD addictive?

Vaping CBD is not addictive. CBD itself is a non-addictive compound which is why some smokers who look to quit nicotine opt instead for vaping CBD.

Is vaping worse than smoking?

As reported by many experts across the globe, vaping is much less harmful than smoking. There is still some harm associated with vaping for those who have never smoked before.

How much should CBD vape should I use?

This is dependent on you and what you want to use CBD for. The FSA suggest that you should have no more than 70mg of CBD a day. Most find it best to start off at a low strength and gradually build up over several weeks until you find the right strength for you. What’s right for someone else may not necessarily be the same for you.

It also requires a little patience as CBD works best after it has built up in your body over time, so even though you may not notice the effects straight away, if you are using high-strength CBD and one day notice that the effects are a little too strong, then you may need to lower your dose or strength.
