CBD Vaping vs. CBD Edibles: The Pros & Cons

August 15, 2018

If CBD is new to you, it is important for you to know something about the different ways to consume it.

That said, I shall discuss the difference between CBD vaping and CBD edibles, so you can make the most informed decision for yourself. Both CBD vapes and CBD edibles deliver symptom relief,  can give you a lift, or help you relax, but they effect the body and mind differently.

Vaping CBD

Smoking high CBD hemp or cannabis flowers can sometimes be harsh on the lungs, which is the reason why many CBD consumers prefer vaping. Vaping is a discreet way to take CBD and is very likely the fastest way to experience relief.  As an added benefit, it is easy to carry a vape pen around with you when you are on-the-go.

What is Vaporization?

With vaporization, there is no actual combustion of the hemp or cannabis, so it doesn’t produce any smoke which causes damage your lungs. Vape pens heat the hemp and convert it into a vapor. Vapors are humidified water, and are smooth and soothing when inhaled, unlike smoke which is dry and irritating.

How Do Vape Pens Work?

Vape pens have a central heating element that gradually heats up cannabis, oil, or wax to between 350 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. This vaporization method heats up the product to right below the degree of combustion.  The CBD is then vaporized by using an atomizer. Since the CBD product is not burned (combusted), it doesn’t produce harsh smoke. Instead, you inhale a soothing vapor, which is easier on the throat and lungs.

CBD Edibles

CBD edibles take up to two hours to work, but their effects last hours longer than vaping.  Many consumers report that when they are looking for a long duration of relief, CBD edibles are their “go-to” delivery method.  In addition to its longer duration, edibles act directly on the digestive system to reduce nausea, decrease intestinal inflammation, and provide nutrients.

Why Do Edibles Take Longer to Work?

When you use a vaporizer, the CBD is absorbed though the lungs and goes directly into the bloodstream and the effects are nearly immediate.  However, when you consume an edible, the CBD must first be metabolized by the liver.  After one to two hours, the effects of the CBD in the edible are felt, and some consumers remark that the experience can be more intense than when the CBD is vaped.

What Types of CBD Edibles are Out There?

You name it, they’ve made it with cannabis. Now the same thing happens to CBD. The days of simple, homemade brownies are over, my friend! You can buy CBD gummies, churros, cookies, brownies, dark chocolate, beer, smoothies, wine, and just about anything else you can think of — all infused with CBD. There are even cannabis chefs who create mouthwatering concoctions for you on the spot in luxury restaurants. Yep — CBD edibles have come a long way from your mom’s kitchen. Explore your options and find your favorite.

No matter which CBD consumption method you prefer, giving yourself several options can help you choose and select the best method for you. If you are a medical cannabis patient, try both and determine which provides the best relief for medical symptoms. If you’re just looking for a way to relax and unwind, you probably already have a personal preference. Be safe and enjoy your CBD no matter which route you choose.
