CBD Infused E Liquid: What are the Key Benefits?

CBD-infused e-liquids - also known as CBD vape juice or vape CBD oil - have massively gained popularity in recent years as the CBD product of choice for people that were already vaping or smoking. Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound from hemp plants. People using CBD vape talk a lot about its potential benefits such as reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation and better sleep [1]. An added benefit of CBD vape juice is that the effects can be felt almost instantly in contrast to other methods of taking CBD (like dropping CBD oil under the tongue) [2]. This makes it easier to establish the ideal dose of CBD for an individual user.

CBD Infused E-Liquids: Different Types

When it comes to CBD infused e-liquids you have various options to choose from depending on the type of CBD extract that is used to produce it. The two main types of CBD used for vape products are full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate.

Full-Spectrum CBD e-liquids contain a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds like flavonoids found naturally in the hemp plant. Some people prefer full spectrum CBD because it can lead to the entourage effect. This is a beneficial synergy between the components enhancing their overall effect [3]. You should be aware that full spectrum CBD does contain trace amounts of THC. The concentration of THC in full spectrum CBD must be less than 0.2-0.3% to be legal in the UK and EU. At these levels you won't feel any particular effect or intoxication from it. However it is a consideration if you are sensitive to it or undergoing drug testing.

CBD Isolate e-liquids on the other hand are made using CBD in its purest form - free from other cannabinoids and compounds. This means that they are 100% THC-free and highly recommended if you want to enjoy the benefits of pure CBD on its own or if you're new to CBD and vaping.

When using CBD e-liquids it's also essential to choose a compatible vape pen or vape kit. As long as the liquid you purchase is based on PG/VG (propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin) it should work with any standard vaporizer. If you are planning on using a CBD extract that is more concentrated and not containing diluents you will need specialized hardware. The best choice here are prefilled cartridges like the Harmony FLOW. 

CBD vape Juice comes in various strengths allowing you to customise the amount of CBD you consume. Keep in mind that the effects of CBD vapour may vary from person to person as everyone's endocannabinoid system is unique. Start with a low dose of CBD liquid and gradually work your way up until you find what works for you. 

Keep in mind that CBD vape liquids are not the same as CBD oil! The latter often contains MCT oil or other carriers that should not be inhaled. The oil can cause damage to your device - or even worse, your lungs. Stick to CBD vape e-liquid on a PG/VG base or pure extracts.

Terpene Infused CBD E Liquid

Terpene infused CBD e liquid is a popular choice for users who want to harness the unique flavours and potential therapeutic properties derived from terpenes while they consume CBD. Terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in many plants including hemp and cannabis. They can enhance the vaping experience and entourage effect in addition to offering potential health benefits.

Thanks to these small but powerful molecules there is a diverse range of vape flavours that can be enjoyed. From fruity and refreshing Mango Kush and Pineapple Express to earthy and woody OG Kush and New York Diesel - the wide variety of terpene profiles creates an appealing selection for vapers seeking new and exciting taste experiences.

How to Use CBD Infused E-Liquids

To begin you'll first of all need a vape pen that is compatible with CBD e-liquids (also known as CBD vape oils). As long as your liquid is PG/VG based it should be compatible with most standard vaping devices.

Fill the vape tank, pod or cartridge with your chosen CBD e-liquid. They come in various strengths and how much CBD is best for you depends on your reason for using CBD and personal preferences. A common recommendation for beginners is to start with a low concentration and gradually increase to find the most suitable dose.

When inhaling CBD you can enjoy the benefits of CBD almost immediately. This is because vaping is the fastest way to add CBD to your bloodstream - as it is absorbed through the lungs instead of passing through the stomach. Inhale the vape into your lungs and hold the vapour for a few seconds before exhaling. The duration of the effects might vary but they typically last between 1-3 hours. Adjust your vaping frequency, number of puffs and the dosage according to your needs. Always be mindful of your body's response and avoid over-consumption as more is not always better.

Storage also plays a critical role if you are planning on using your CBD e-liquid over a longer amount of time. Always store leftovers in a cool, dark place to prevent the degradation of CBD and flavourings. Make sure that the bottle is tightly sealed to prevent exposure to air and moisture.

Understanding CBD and E-Liquids

CBD (or cannabidiol) is a non-psychotropic compound found in the cannabis plant. It has gained popularity for its potential therapeutic benefits which according to science may include pain relief, anxiety reduction, and improved sleep, among others. E-liquids containing CBD but no nicotine are non-addictive and could in fact be utilized as a tool to combat substance addiction [4]. Preliminary studies show that CBD could help conventional smokers reduce their tobacco consumption without suffering symptoms of withdrawal [5].  

CBD is legal in the UK and EU as long as certain regulations are followed. Unlike CBD - THC is classified as a narcotic and its presence in products has to be limited. CBD used must be derived from industrial hemp and contain no more than 0.2-0.3% THC. 

Most people tolerate CBD well and its use in e-liquids is unlikely to cause any significant issues as long as there is no underlying allergy towards specific flavouring compounds. However mild side effects may occur in the case of overconsumption such as dizziness, dry mouth and changes in appetite. Always pay close attention to your body when taking CBD oil or using eliquids infused with CBD.

Benefits of Vaping CBD

As we already mentioned, vaping CBD allows for rapid absorption of the cannabinoid into your bloodstream making it a faster-acting option compared to other methods like oral ingestion or topical applications. This means you can feel the effects of CBD faster; especially helpful if you're using it to address acute discomfort or stress.

Vaping CBD offers a discrete and socially acceptable method of consumption. With many public spaces in the UK and EU allowing the use of vape devices you can enjoy the effects of CBD vape juice without drawing unwanted attention or disturbing those around you.

Besides only vaping science has shown that CBD has anxiolytic [6] and analgesic [7] properties, meaning it can help deal with anxiety and pain. It's being explored as an additional treatment option for chronic pain patients restoring quality of life [8]. It is also being looked into as a remedy for discomfort caused by exhaustive strength training in athletes [9]. Furthermore it's also promising as a sleeping aid rivaling the performance of classic medication like melatonin [10]. Last but not least topical CBD like salves and creams show various benefits for the skin [11]. 

It's important to note that while vaping CBD is considered safe it should not be seen as a medical treatment. Conventional products - even those made with premium quality CBD - are not medicine. Always speak to your doctor if you are planning to address an underlying health condition or are already taking prescription medication.

In summary: vaping CBD can offer you a convenient, fast-acting and discreet way to experience the potential benefits of this versatile cannabinoid. By choosing a reputable brand and starting with a low dose you can make the most of your CBD e-liquid.
