CBD Vape Additive: What Are Its Benefits and How to Use It?

CBD vape additives have gained popularity in recent years as a convenient and versatile way for vapers and smokers to add some CBD into their routine. In general vape additives are made from CBD mixed into a base of propylene glycol (PG) and sometimes vegetable glycerin (VG). These are common ingredients in e-liquids. These boosters or vape shots are available in various strengths and are mostly unflavored (though flavoured versions do exist) to blend seamlessly into your favourite liquid. This offers a highly customisable experience. At Harmony we offer Pure Base, a premix of CBD in propylene glycol (PG) - that can be incorporated in any other e liquid to add a dose of CBD.  

Key Takeaways

  • Versatile and customisable - CBD boosters can be mixed with your favourite e-liquid
  • Vaping allows for quick CBD absorption - providing a fast onset of effects
  • Harmony offers Pure Base - a premix of 1000mg CBD in PG

Vape CDB Additive: What is it?

CBD vape additives are designed to be added to your favourite vape juices - turning them into CBD vape juices. If you already vape it's a fantastic way for you to gain the benefits of CBD while still using your preferred vape flavours. 

If you're looking to buy CBD vape additive - there are many options. But it's essential to choose one that's high-quality and comes with certificates of analysis. Harmony's Pure Base 1000mg CBD per 10ml Booster is a popular choice among CBD enthusiasts.

Here are some benefits that CBD additives can provide:

  • Since you're the one adding CBD yourself you have full control over the amount of CBD you add.
  • You can continue using e liquids you already enjoy and turn them into CBD vapes.
  • Instead of buying multiple CBD-infused juices you can just add CBD to your existing collection.

It's worth noting that you will be adding the CBD directly into your juice - which means you want to ensure you're not adding too much. Start with a lower concentration (add less booster) - monitor how you feel - and adjust accordingly to find the perfect balance.

How to Use CBD Vape Additives

To start choose a high-quality CBD vape shot (for example Pure Base from Harmony). Then add as much CBD as you would like to your favourite e-juice - following this simple process:

  1. Shake the CBD booster bottle well before using it to ensure everything is evenly distributed.
  2. Start with a low dose of CBD - especially if you're new to it.
  3. Add the CBD additive to your e-juice of choice by adding a few drops directly to your vape tank. 
  4. Shake your vaping device briefly for an even distribution.
  5. Vape as usual and enjoy the benefits of your new CBD e-liquid.

Benefits of Using CBD Vape Additives in Vape Juice

CBD vape additives are growing in popularity as a versatile way to incorporate the potential benefits of CBD into your daily routine. By adding a few drops of  additive to your favourite e-liquid, you can enjoy the effects of CBD while you also still use your current vape setup.

One of the main advantages of vaping CBD is its faster absorption rate compared to other modes of taking CBD. Vaping transports the compound directly into your bloodstream rather than having to pass through the digestive system first. This mean you can begin to feel the effects very quickly compared to for example using CBD oil or topicals [1]. This immediate biofeedback also makes dosing a lot easier and controllable. It also makes CBD infused regular e-liquid an attractive option for those who are looking for rapid relief from stress [2], anxiety [3], or discomfort [4].

CBD Vape Additive: Safety and Quality

CBD (or cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid typically extracted from hemp plants from the cannabis sativa family. It has become very popular for its potential therapeutic benefits. It is not to be confused with its cousin THC - the psychoactive compound in cannabis causing a "high" effect. CBD additives don't cause intoxication [5]. In the UK and EU legal CBD products must contain no more than 0.2-0.3% THC (depending on where you are located exactly) to comply with regulations. This is to ensure that CBD vape additives will not have any psychoactive effects or get you high. Top brands will happily share certificates of analysis of their products to declare the amount of THC present.

Another essential factor in ensuring the safety and quality of CBD vape additives is the use of high-quality ingredients and maintaining the highest standards during production. Harmony is committed to offering premium products to UK and EU customers - our liquids are made in clean room environments using quality ingredients and adhering to strict regulations. So you can enjoy your CBD without having to worry.

One last thing to consider is the presence or absence of nicotine in your CBD vape additive. When selecting a booster, opting for products with no nicotine will ensure a safer and more enjoyable experience. 

By sticking to these guidelines you can enjoy a quality CBD vaping experience that is safe for your body and mind. Remember to always consult your doctor before trying new products or supplements if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns.
