CBD E Liquid 5000mg, 3000mg, 2000mg, 1000mg: What are the Differences?

CBD e-liquids have experienced a rise in popularity in the UK and EU as they are an alternative to traditional nicotine vapes or cigarettes. With various concentrations available these products offer a wide range of options for vapers interested in trying CBD-infused products. If you're new to the world of CBD e-liquids you might wonder about the differences in potency and how to choose the right product. Don't worry - in this article we will help you to figure it out!

Key Takeaways

  • CBD e-liquids come in various strengths
  • You should consider your desired effects in combination with your individual CBD tolerance and vaping style when selecting a product
  • Always choose a reputable brand (like Harmony) to ensure product quality

Choosing the Right CBD E-Liquid Strength

When it comes to selecting the right potency for your CBD vaping it's essential to consider what you want to achieve. CBD e-liquids can be available in various cannabinoid concentrations such as 5000mg, 3000mg, 2000mg, and 1000mg. Always consider the bottle size when you trying to establish the potency! While 1000 mg in a 10 ml bottle equals a strong concentration of 10% - it is only a lower 1.7% in a 60ml bottle! To reach 10% in this bigger bottle size it would have to contain 6000mg CBD.

If you're new to CBD you should start with a lower dose like 100-300mg in 10ml and see how it makes you feel. From there you can gradually increase the strength if necessary. Consider factors such as your body weight, desired effects and tolerance levels. Also think about your vaping style! If you reach for your device very frequently and enjoy long vaping sessions go for a lower concentration. If you only enjoy one or two puffs every now and then you might be better off with a higher strength. Keep in mind that CBD affects everyone differently - so it's completely normal that some trial and error is involved in figuring out the right dosage. Always follow the directions provided with the product before using or consuming CBD. 

Various CBD e-liquids are readily available - ranging from 100 over 2500 to 5000 mg or more - offering you a wide selection to suit your preferences. The type of CBD used to make the product should also be a factor to consider. full spectrum CBD e-liquids contain all the cannabinoids found in hemp including CBG and a trace of THC. They might be more suitable for experienced users. Many CBD oil cartridges - Including the Harmony FLOW vape - contain this form of CBD extract. E-Liquid vape juice (like the Harmony Originals range) might also be infused with terpenes for flavour and a contribution to the entourage effect - a beneficial synergy between all compounds that reinforces their effects.  

One last thing to keep in mind is to select a reputable brand. Brands like Harmony offer high-quality products that have been tested for purity and potency and are compatible with regulations.

What is CBD Vape E-Liquid?

CBD E-Liquid (also known as CBD vape juice or CBD vape oil) is a liquid on the basis of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) specifically designed for use in electronic cigarettes and vape devices. Cannabidiol is a natural compound derived from the cannabis plant that has various potential benefits without the psychoactive effects of THC. This means you can enjoy CBD without getting high or otherwise intoxicated [1].

The liquid is available in various strengths (100mg, 200mg, 300mg, 500mg, ...) and bottle sizes (10ml, 30ml, 50ml, ...) allowing you to choose what best suits your needs. If you're new to CBD starting with a lower strength and bottle size might be a good idea to see how your body reacts without overspending money.

Besides the various strengths and sizes there is also a wide range of flavours available - from classic mint to more exotic options like fruity or dessert-inspired profiles. This makes it easy for you to find a flavour that appeals to your taste buds while enjoying the potential benefits of CBD. Also good to know: CBD vape liquids - including all of Harmony's products - are nicotine-free for a healthier vaping experience that doesn't cause addiction.

Benefits and Uses of CBD E Liquid

With the increase of popularity of CBD along with the loosening of restrictions around its extraction and use there was also a boom in scientific studies around this exciting compound. Over the course of the last few years, CBD was found to help with conditions like anxiety [2], sleep issues [3], endometriosis [4], acne [5] and muscle soreness [6], just to name some examples. 

One potential benefit getting a lot of attention is pain relief. Studies found that CBD might act as an analgesic [7] and could be used (in addition to other treatments) to tackle the issue of chronic pain [8] or more minor aches and pains - such as back pain

It's however important to note that CBD e-liquids are not a one-size-fits-all solution for pain management and individual results may vary. Common CBD products on the market are not medicine and not made to diagnose or prevent any disease. If you have an underlying health condition you wish to address please speak to your healthcare professional first - especially if you are already receiving treatment in the form of prescription medication.

Quality, Lab Testing, and Potency

When it comes to CBD e-liquids, quality is crucial! You want to ensure the products you use are 3rd party lab-tested (look for certificates of analysis - COAs!) and made under the highest standards. Lab testing is essential for ensuring potency and safety. It helps to confirm the absence or level of other substances like psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and verify the CBD concentration - making sure you get your money's worth. 

In the UK and EU products must not contain more than 0.2-0.3% THC. This ensures that the products are not intoxicating and legal for use by individuals over the age of 18. To help you navigate the legal landscape and make an informed decision many reputable companies provide advisory information on their website. 

In summary: always opt for high-quality, lab-tested CBD e-liquids from reputable brands. They will offer a wide selection of flavoured liquids in various potencies ensuring regulatory compliance. Remember, your safety and satisfaction should be your top concerns when choosing CBD products!
