At no point in history have people been more accepting of the benefits of having cannabis as an option for pain relief and medication than today. And one of the quirks about continually shifting opinions is people new to it find deciding whether CBD is right for them a tiresome process.
This guide is meant to be a neat, short, medical term-free introduction to CBD, it’s benefits and if it’s the right option for you. Keep in mind that everything new has some sort of learning curve, and vaping CBD oil is no exception.
Whether you’ve tried it before and just want to know what the effects of extended use are or you’re looking to try it out for the first time, this guide is a great resource to get you on your feet.
Let’s start with the basics.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is an extract from cannabis buds and flowers. It can also be extracted from various other parts of the hemp plant with lower concentrations of THC.
To cut a long complicated story short, CBD does not contain the same chemicals as THC, often associated with the high. For which reason, it’s often more used medicinally and holds little appeal for recreational users. It does, however, have the benefit of providing therapeutic effects.
CBD oil has a whole host of benefits, but the main factor that attracts people to them is the fact that it can be enhanced with different flavors. Of these, fruit flavors are the most popular. And since it has no psychoactive effects (read: it can’t get you high), it can be purchased without a prescription. It’s also, often referred to as vape juice or vaporizer liquid, depending on the company you’re dealing with.
CBD oil is commonly used by people with a range of conditions, from anxiety and depression to more serious health conditions to escape the adverse effects some prescription medication brings about. Some patients are prescribed CBD oil for pain relief and keeping away nausea.
CBD also has anti-inflammatory qualities, which make it an excellent choice for preventing complications like acne.
Keep in mind that before using CBD oil to treat any conditions you may be experiencing, always consult your doctor beforehand.
Among the most popular ways to consume whatever form of cannabis a person can get their hands on is vaping. In simple terms, vaping involves heating the cannabis into a fine vapor – but none of this involves burning it like normal smoking. It’s thought to be much healthier because you don’t have to inhale any burnt plant matter.
There are three different kinds of vaping devices (vaporizers) available to the general public: table-top vapes, dry herb vapes and concentrates, also known as oils, which are the most popular kind out there since they are small, cheap and discrete – ideally designed for people on the move. Naturally enough, CBD oil can only be used with pen vapes.
Depending on the kind of vaporizer you use, it either activates when you place it in your mouth, or you’ll have to press a button to get the heater started. Once the CBD liquid is heated up, it turns into vapor, which you then inhale.
The process of picking out a CBD vape juice is more a matter of personal preference than anything. What is recommended, however, is to start out with lower strengths before you start using higher strength CBD oils – ie. 250 mg before you move up to 500 mg and higher.
The other factor that will potentially come into play is what taste you prefer your vape to have. There are well over four hundred flavors to choose from more common tastes like vanilla, coffee, and strawberry to more esoteric tastes like kiwi and lava flow.
Some vape juice manufacturers also provide their product pre-steeped. Steeping essentially means that the liquid has been given time to mature – and the taste left to become more refined and balanced out – before being placed on the shelf for purchase. Otherwise, you’d have to figure out the right conditions to store the product, so it attains the perfect mix of flavors.
Another factor to be on the lookout for is the relative clearness of the vape liquid. In general, the clearer it is, the better its quality is likely to be. Treat it just like you would treat your water – the clearer, the better.
The primary advice regarding how much CBD to vape is mostly along the lines of ‘start small and go on from there.’ That’s hardly all-encompassing, however.
There are tons of other factors that go into how much CBD oil you should take. These include your age, tolerance, weight, and, above all – what symptoms you’re trying to treat, if any.
Typical CBD strengths vary as follows (in mg):
50 – 200 (low)
201 – 500 (medium)
501 – 1000 (high)
2000 – 4000 (very high)
Effects of CBD vape oil
For the most part, there are usually no noticeable adverse effects of vaping CBD oil. However, as with all drugs, their effects vary from person to person.
The usual symptoms of having vaped include a feeling of euphoria, calm and pain relief. It doesn’t come about instantly, of course, but then it takes effect sooner the more you use it.
Some minor recorded side effects associated with vaping CBD include a feeling of drowsiness, lethargy, dizziness and dry mouth. However, these often only occur once a person has taken the CBD oil in high dosages. If you happen to feel any of these symptoms, stop vaping, drink a glass of water and lower your dosage the next time you decide to vape. Either that or cut your vape oil with another e-liquid to lower its concentration.
