This exciting range of CBD vape oils are relatively new to the vaping scene.
What Is CBD?
It’s an an acronym for cannabidiol which of one of many dozens of compounds that are found within the marijuana plant.
Most people will have heard of THC (the part which gets you high) but CBD is the second largest component that can be extracted from the plant – or more commonly from industrial hemp – without any psychoactive properties.
It may not get you toasted, but it does carry all the potential health-boosting properties which many believe the plant offers.
Until quite recently, most people took CBD via a form of oil – usually in an oil which is taken orally via oral sprays or oral drops. With the emergence of vaping, the logical next step was to find a way of mixing the oil into a form of e-liquid.
Let’s make one thing absolutely clear right away – CBD vape oils/e-liquids do not get you stoned! That is contrary to their whole point. These products are an extract of hemp that is specifically removed from all but a minuscule trace of THC.
Marijuana/hemp has long been thought to offer potential health benefits – so much so that almost half of US states now make some kind of provision for the plant’s medicinal application.
If the nation with some of the toughest anti-drug laws on earth makes such concessions then there must be something in it… right? That’s for you to decide, but primarily the reason why people vape high strength CBD vape oil is for some kind of perceived benefit.
How Does It Work As An E-Liquid?
CBD e-liquids work just the same as any other kind of juice.
They are commonly comprised of a blend of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG), with added flavourings and an active compound – in this case cannabidiol rather than nicotine.
Buying CBD E-Liquids
There are a few things to keep an eye out for when shopping for CBD e-liquid, and this is one of the reasons why these products lend themselves to being purchased online.
Some companies will provide a full list of the active cannabinoids within their range, allowing you to easily search for the purest e-liquids possible.
Just as with standard e-juice, reputations are hard won in a highly competitive market and the cheapest is not always the best value.
Be wary about trying to vape any kind of oil – 99.9% of devices will not be able to handle it, and it’ll just destroy/clog your atomizer. If you want to vape CBD oil, then we recommend specialist high power CBD vaporizers for this purpose.
