CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of many compounds inside cannabis and hemp. Unlike its big brother, THC – short for tetrahydrocannabinol – CBD doesn’t get you high or stoned, nor does it leave you feeling disoriented. However, many people who use CBD find it relaxes them and leaves them in a good frame of mind – relaxed but clearheaded.
CBD is used around the world by people seeking relief from a range of ailments, such as insomnia, chronic pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression. CBD also rose to fame a few years ago in the case of Charlotte Figi, a little girl suffering from Dravet Syndrome; a rare form of epilepsy. Charlotte was able to reduce her seizures and improve her quality of life significantly by using CBD, where most of her prescription medications failed her.
We’re taking an in-depth look at the phenomenon of vaping CBD, with easy-to-read, simple explanations on a variety of different aspects. Let’s start by understanding a little bit more about CBD and how it’s possible to vaporize it.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a compound inside cannabis and hemp. As previously mentioned, CBD doesn’t get you high like THC, and it’s the second most prominent cannabinoid in the plants. It needs to be noted that not all CBD is equal, and that depends on whether it comes from cannabis or hemp.
CBD that comes from conventional cannabis plants often includes some THC and is what you’d typically find at a cannabis dispensary in places where it’s legal. CBD that comes from hemp is classified as containing no more than trace amounts of THC (up to 0.3%) and is used for industrial purposes as well as for CBD topicals like creams and other CBD products.
There are also different types of CBD in terms of the way it’s processed and sold, so let’s get familiar with the different terms.
There are also different ways to vaporize CBD, and this needs to be understood before you buy or try.
CBD, like other cannabinoids and natural compounds, works by attaching to various receptors throughout the body. When it comes to CBD specifically, the human body has something called CB1 and CB2 receptors. These make up part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
CB1 receptors are mainly concentrated in the brain while CB2 receptors are found primarily on white blood cells, making up part of the immune system. We naturally create cannabinoids which bond to these receptors to regulate different processes in our bodies and maintain homeostasis.
The ECS helps manage things such as immune function, appetite, sleep wake cycles, pain response, and so forth. As such, when we are ‘cannabinoid deficient’ our bodies become destabilized and no longer function optimally. In this situation, supplementing with plant-based cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) can be beneficial.
Now we have the technical part out of the way, let’s take a closer look at CBD Vape Juice specifically. We also want to educate ourselves about any potential red flags that may exist when it comes to buying this relatively new “wellness” product.
Vaping, whether E-cigarettes with nicotine or CBD, falls between a rock and a hard place as far as the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are concerned. On the other hand, although the long-term effects of vaping are unclear (as it was invented only around a decade ago), it is considered to be far safer than smoking.
When you combust any plant material directly into the lungs by smoking a joint, pipe or bong, the respiratory system is traumatized. That’s why many people cough and splutter when smoking cannabis, CBD flowers, or cigarettes. There are also various carcinogens that are released through combustion, and that’s not to mention the tar that is inhaled and the dirty ashtrays that are left behind.
That’s precisely the reason why so many people wanting to give up smoking cigarettes have done so successfully with vaping. Vaping also appears to be the best smoking cessation device to date as droves of people around the world kick the tobacco in favor of it. CBD E-Liquid uses the same principle and even the same carrier liquids. With that said, CBD Vape Juice contains no nicotine or additional ingredients other than CBD extract, carrier liquids, and in some cases, flavorings. But what are the differences between these carrier liquids known as PG, VG, and MCT?
For beginners or those just wanting to vape CBD without all the details, the take-home point is relatively simple. While it’s true that the long term effects of vaping CBD – whether inside PG, VG or MCT – are unknown, vaping appears to be relatively safe, and it’s certainly a great way to get the perfect dose of CBD into your system. The other great thing about vaping CBD is that the effects are felt potently and immediately by most people. That’s due to the delivery method for the natural compound being via the lungs and not through the stomach.
While CBD Vape Juice and CBD Edibles contain the same active ingredients, they are quite different in terms of usage and effect. This is down to what we touched upon in the previous section when it comes to taking CBD via the lungs or stomach. When CBD is taken through the lungs, the effects are felt immediately or within a couple of minutes. These effects will usually peak within ten minutes and last for a while, getting weaker as time goes by.
When you eat CBD via the stomach – in CBD Gummies, CBD Cupcakes or even CBD Oil – it takes a long time for the active compounds to take effect (up to three hours). That’s down to the long and treacherous passage they need to take through the digestive system. However, it also depends on the condition you are treating whether you opt for CBD Vape Juice or a CBD edible.
Chronic pain users will often opt for CBD edibles as they can work for many hours to relieve the pain or inflammation. As mentioned, those suffering from panic attacks or anxiety will likely prefer the immediate feeling of relief that comes from vaping.
When it comes to purchasing that CBD vape pen, there are several options to choose from. Let’s take a quick look at the different options available when it comes to vaping CBD in E-liquid.
In short, if you are brand new to the world of vaping CBD, it’s probably advisable to purchase a disposable CBD Vape Pen to see if you enjoy the experience. If you’re already a fan of vaping CBD and have some experience with it, might as well branch out a little and buy your first refillable tank or reusable pod system for that ultimate CBD vaping experience.
The Phenopen experience blew other vape pens out of the water and that’s because of two main components: The first being the specially designed battery and coil which heat the CBD to optimum temperature’ and the second is the CBD inside.
Unlike most other CBD Vape Pen and E-liquid manufacturers who use carrier liquids for their CBD such as PG, VG or MCT Oil, the Phenopen contains 100% hemp extract with cannabinoids and terpenes reintroduced during processing
Secret Nature’s CBD Vape Pen – With a replaceable cartridge design, Secret Nature’s CBD Vape Pens are both convenient and easy to use on the go. The quality of the vapor in this range, which includes five different CBD strains, is exemplary. The clouds are tasty and the effects are felt immediately.
The Secret Nature CBD Vape Pen range comes in five options – two Sativa strains for a daytime or more uplifting experience. Two Indicas, for nighttime and sedative effects. And one Hybrid for a perfect mix of the two.
The whole Secret Nature CBD Vape Pen range contains completely organic, full-spectrum CBD. Real cannabis terpene profiles are reintroduced into the CBD liquid, all sourced from boutique cannabis cultivators in the state of California.
We hope we got your attention with the above heading as it’s time to listen up. While there’s little cause for alarm as CBD is non-toxic, non-addictive and considered overall to be safe, there are some things you need to look out for when purchasing CBD Vape Pens or E-Liquids. Here are a few things to be mindful of.
If you reached the “Final Thoughts” section at the end of this CBD Vaping 101, you are now well-educated about many essential aspects of CBD E-Liquid. All that remains now is for you to make your choice and purchase the right product for you.
If we can made a suggestion, the PhenoPen Premium CBD Vaping Kit is one of the best on the market and will definitely offer the results you’re looking for.
As well as checking lab results and battery safety, it’s also strongly recommended that you search for and read online reviews from verified buyers who have already sampled the product or products you’re interested in. Many people take the time to write candid, honest reviews of the products they buy, leaving a lot of the guesswork out of the equation for you.
