Vaping is now the most typical way to take CBD as emerging markets have seen the influx of several CBD-infused and vape products each day. Many people turned to CBD to quit smoking or to consume less nicotine. With the many options available, it’s normal to express doubts and ask questions about vaping CBD.

This guide will answer your questions and clear your doubts about vaping CBD. We encourage you to read to the end and discover some facts you probably didn’t know.

What is CBD?

The cannabis Sativa plant has many active compounds; one of them is CBD, also known as cannabinoids. CBD has therapeutic properties which explain its growing popularity in recent years. It is consumed in different ways and for various purposes. Many take it as a recreational drug to relieve pain, anxiety, or to treat an illness. However, many experts have warned that misuse could lead to adverse effects over time.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is yet another active compound found in the cannabis plant.

Unlike CBD, it is rich in psychoactive properties that create the feeling of “high” when taken. However, CBD has some health benefits that are similar to that of THC. This allows you to enjoy its therapeutic effects without the high risk of addiction associated with THC.

To date, researchers are still looking for the benefits of CBD. That doesn’t mean that there are none. However, it is believed that CBD has more potential health benefits when vaped than what experts claim. This may be the reason why many CBD users prefer pure vape juice to other vaping liquids. Below are some of the various ways CBD can benefit us medically.

  • Treating epilepsy

Many years ago, various studies were conducted and there were speculations that CBD can be used to treat epilepsy effectively. The results showed that it could reduce the frequency of seizures. This propelled the FDA to approve Epidiolex (a CBD-infused drug) to treat epileptic patients and even children as young as the age of two.

  • Anxiety

Many studies claim that CBD is beneficial for the treatment of anxiety. There are certain CBD-infused drugs and supplements that could alleviate anxiety triggers. These include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and anxiety disorders. However, more research is needed.

  • Pain and inflammation

Several animal studies have shown that CBD has anti-pain and anti-inflammatory properties. Even though few human studies have backed up this claim, Health Canada has approved a combination of THC and CBD drugs to relieve pain.

CBD is used to treat a wide range of medical conditions such as arthritis, period pain, sleep disorders, acne, and depression. However, the dosage must be monitored to achieve desired results.

Now that you know the benefits of CBD, how can you vape CBD?

How to Take CBD

Users can take CBD in different forms. That way, they can easily apply a consumption method that aligns with their health needs. Here are some of the ways you can take CBD.

Edibles

CBD edibles are available as gummies that are tasty and affordable. There is no guesswork here because you know what you are consuming.

Oil and tinctures

Most CBD users who can’t take pills or capsules may choose CBD oils and tinctures. They are oils infused with CBD and placed under the tongue using a dropper. Due to their constituent compounds, the body quickly absorbs them.

Capsules and pills

They mostly serve as a systematic treatment for various illnesses such as pain, epilepsy, and other disorders. Unlike oils and tinctures, capsules and pills don’t absorb quickly into the bloodstream.

Creams and lotions

There are many topical gels, lotions, and creams infused with CBD for treating a wide range of skin conditions such as acne and eczema. Also, most manufacturers infuse CBD into their skincare and makeup products too.

Vaping

Vaping CBD is the fastest and most preferred way to feel the effects of CBD because it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. CBD made for vaping is the inhaled vape juice after it is heated up to vapor point.

How Do I Vape CBD?

If you are new to vaping, you may want to start with a vape pen. They come in disposable cartridges that contain your favorite CBD juice. Just follow these steps:

  • Switch on your vape.
  • Inhale the mouthpiece (most devices may need you to press a switch).
  • When the vapor has settled in your mouth, inhale it into your lungs gradually.
  • Hold it in and exhale gradually.
  • Repeat the steps for every hit.

Vaping CBD: How much should I take?

It’s highly significant to consider dosage before vaping CBD. Because there is no known dosage when taking CBD in any form, it’s only normal to start with a low dosage and watch how your body reacts to it before increasing it gradually.

Note that CBD-infused drugs and supplements have different variations. Before you consume any, you should check the label to see the amount of CBD infused into it. Perhaps, in the future, a recommended and safe dose may be available for the different forms of CBD.

If you are new to the world of vaping or you are considering trying a particular CBD product, we advise you to seek medical help to discover the right option for you.
