While something called CBD vape oil may sound like another millennial fad (I’m looking at you, avocado toast) vaping CBD has actually become popular with countless people regardless of age. If you want to learn more about the potential benefits of vaping CBD and how it will make you feel, read on!
What is CBD Vape Juice?
CBD vape juice, like some other CBD products, is made from three ingredients:
- Vegetable glycerin
- Propylene glycol
- CBD extract
These three ingredients mix together to give you the premium CBD vaping experience you’re looking for. Some vape juice products also have added flavours that can spice up your CBD e-liquids and put a new spin on things.
CBD vape juices trigger your endocannabinoid system as any other CBD oil product would.
How Does CBD Vape Make You Feel?
Many people ask me “how does vaping CBD feel?” or “what happens when I vape CBD oil?”
Most of the benefits of CBD apply to the vape juice in the same way they would if you consume CBD edibles or use CBD oils from tinctures. If you usually react a certain way after consuming products sourced from hemp plants, you should have the same reaction to CBD vaping.
It Won’t Make You Feel High!
Unlike smoking weed, taking a few puffs of CBD won’t get you high. This is because the THC level in CBD products are far too low to have psychoactive effects. We’re talking about 0.2% levels of THC or less which is why you react differently when vaping CBD.
For the same reason, CBD use won’t affect the results of a drug test either, provided that the CBD product you ingested or vaped is manufactured properly. Buying from dishonest merchants may lead to a situation where your CBD e-liquids have high concentrations of THC, causing you to test positive.
CBD vape juice has been known to have calming effects for customers, helping them feel relaxed for up to two hours (or longer in some cases.) Most people vaping CBD feel like they’re more at peace and that some of the things they were worried about aren’t as stressful anymore.
One 40-participant study compared CBD to prescription medications like Valium in a double-blind, placebo-controlled setting and found that it did in fact reduce anxiety. Researchers used both the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STA) and Visual Analogue Mood Scale (VAMS) to measure results.
When CBD enters your body, it activates the endocannabinoid system — a nerve signaling system that helps modulate the functions of your central nervous system. While remote tribes using naturally occurring cannabinoids found the benefits of the cannabis genus first, word has quickly spread.
Nowadays, we have top universities researching the compounds that let CBD work for pain and other potential applications. If you have a medical marijuana card for acute pain or multiple sclerosis then you should stick to your doctor’s recommendations, but throwing vape pens into the mix won’t hurt.
A 2016 study tested CBD on rats with arthritis to see how it would affect them. The results showed that CBD will not only reduce pain but also inflammation in the joints. It’s worth noting that rat results don’t always reflect on humans but it’s clear that cannabis sativa has many benefits to discover.
How Long Will It Take to Feel The Effects?
Like most products derived from a hemp plant, the time between consumption and the effects manifesting can vary from person to person. This is the same reason some people feel instant relief from CBD creams while others have to wait a bit longer.
Even smaller factors like how your vape device heats the CBD e-liquid can have an impact on the amount of time it takes before you start feeling the effects of the CBD. Finally, the quality of CBD vape oils may also have an impact on the waiting time.
Why Don’t I Feel Anything?
If you don’t feel anything after vaping CBD then there are a few things that might have gone wrong. Firstly, some people just have a naturally high tolerance to vaping CBD in the same way that certain people may not react as much after having a few bottles of beer.
Another explanation might be that your CBD vape oil is low quality or even fraudulent. If you suspect this is the case then you could buy a potency test kit to see if the CBD vape oil you bought is up to par. Alternatively, you could look at reviews on the CBD vape oil to see if similar issues have been reported.
It could be an instance where lazy sellers are using old cannabis plants to make their CBD e-liquid and CBD oil products. If you vape CBD that comes from old plants, that could definitely dilute the normal reaction you’d have from CBD vape oils.
At the end of the day, the best way to get around this issue in the first place would be to only buy CBD products from a reputable retailer with a good track record. Picking up CBD vape oil from shady sites just because they’re on discount will likely cost you more in the long run.
If you’re trying to use CBD to treat chronic pain issues and aren’t seeing the results you had hoped for after reading inspiring anecdotes, we urge you to get treatment from a medical professional. CBD vape oil is great but it shouldn’t be treated as a panacea or substitute for traditional medicine.
Is Vaping CBD Legal?
Under UK laws, CBD is legal as long as the level of THC present is 0.2% or lower. That being the case, you shouldn’t run into any issues when vaping CBD. However, we wouldn’t recommend carrying these products while traveling as certain destinations may have stricter policies around CBD.
Where Should I Buy CBD Vape Juice?
There’s no shortage of merchants to get your CBD vape juice cartridges from so taking the time to find the right retailer is definitely the way to go. If you see full-spectrum CBD products being sold then you should note that full-spectrum CBD does have higher trace amounts of THC.
You won’t see the same concentrations you would in marijuana plants but the presence of other cannabinoids is more pronounced than in products made with CBD isolate. It all comes down to your specific circumstances.
Wherever you buy, look for positive (verified) reviews and a clean track record.
As you can see, CBD vaping is definitely worth trying out even if some of the health benefits will require further research to fully verify.
