CBD Vape Benefits: Are They Worth Exploring for Your Wellbeing?
CBD vaping has become increasingly popular over the last years. More and more people seek methods to experience the potential benefits of vaping CBD. Vaping - as the name suggests- involves inhaling heated CBD vape juice. This method works faster and more efficiently compared to other forms of CBD consumption. Many individuals prefer vaping CBD juice over smoking because it offers a more convenient and discreet way to incorporate it into a daily routine.
It's essential to note that research into the effects of CBD is still ongoing. It is therefore crucial not to make any exaggerated claims about its effectiveness. Nevertheless, more and more studies suggest a beneficial impact of taking CBD on everyday ailments like stress and sleep - making it a wellness supplement worth exploring.

What Is CBD Vaping
CBD vaping is a popular method for experiencing the potential benefits of CBD. CBD (short for cannabidiol) is a non-psychotropic compound found in the hemp plant. By vaping CBD you may find relief for your anxiety, inflammation, pain or stress. By heating and inhaling a CBD-infused e-liquid you allow the compound to enter your body quickly and efficiently through the lungs. Unlike other consumption methods - such as edibles or oils - vaping offers a fast-acting experience . Many users report effects within minutes of inhaling.
When you choose to vape CBD you'll come across various devices such as vape pens - designed explicitly for CBD vaping. These devices typically use cartridges or tanks that are pre-filled with CBD e-liquid or that you can fill with your own. It's essential to purchase vape pens and e-liquids from reputable providers (like Harmony) to guarantee the products' safety and quality.
Vaping CBD is legal in the UK and the EU. However - it's crucial to familiarise yourself with local laws to ensure compliance. In general CBD products must contain less than 0.2-0.3% THC (the psychoactive compound found in marijuana responsible for the "high") and be derived from approved hemp varieties.
In conclusion: CBD vaping is a convenient, efficient and discreet way to experience the potential benefits of CBD. Ensure that you use quality products from a trusted brand like Harmony and stay up-to-date on local laws and regulations. Although vaping is considered safer than smoking, we only recommend it if you are and adult over 18 years and already vaping or smoking. For non-smokers/vapers we have a premium range of CBD oils and topicals to explore.
Benefits of CBD Vape
Vaping CBD is one of the quickest ways to feel its effects. When you vape CBD it is absorbed directly into your bloodstream. This is also allowing you to absorb more CBD per dose than through other methods - meaning it has a higher bioavailability as it bypasses the stomach and intestinal tract .
Anxiety and Stress Reduction
One of the most prominent potential benefits of CBD is its ability to help reduce anxiety and stress. Some studies have found that CBD may be effective at treating social anxiety disorder and other anxiety-related ailments . Stress relief is one of the number one reasons for people to try CBD .
Pain and Inflammation Relief
CBD has been studied a fair bit for its potential role in managing chronic pain and inflammation . By vaping cannabidiol you could potentially experience relief from these symptoms more quickly than with other methods. This also means that CBD could help you recover from exercise quicker  and help relief tension.
More and more scientific publications point towards CBD as a compound that could help improve sleep - even starting from quite low concentrations . It could help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep for longer.
Different Types of CBD Vapes
There are various types of CBD vapes available to meet your personal needs. Harmony offers a wide range of CBD e-liquids and vape pens without nicotine to choose from.
CBD and Its Interaction with THC
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. While THC is responsible for the intoxicating "high" effects of cannabis, CBD can partially counteract these effects  - offering a more balanced experience when vaping a full-spectrum CBD product that contains both CBD and THC.
Side Effects and Health Risks
When consumed in small quantities under 70mg of CBD per day no major side effects have been linked to CBD consumption. But while it is certainly safer than smoking , CBD vaping is not without its risks. We therefore don't recommend it to people that are not already smoking or vaping. If you have any underlying health conditions or are taking prescription medication, it becomes essential to be cautious and consult your healthcare provider before trying CBD vaping.
Dosage and Consumption
Determining the right dose of CBD for your needs can be a trial and error process as everyone has a different tolerance and reaction to cannabinoids. Start with a low dose (few puffs and a low concentration vape liquid) and gradually increase it until you find the right amount to provide the desired effects.
Alternatives to Vaping CBD
If you prefer not to vape - for example because you are a non-smoker - there are alternative ways to consume CBD. This includes but is not exclusive to CBD oils, edibles and topical solutions (CBD skincare and cosmetics). These methods may have different effects and benefits compared to vaping CBD.
Choosing the Right CBD Vape
When selecting a CBD vape consider factors such as the type of hemp the CBD originates from. Also look into whether the product is full-spectrum, broad-spectrum or isolate. Full spectrum contains all the cannabinoids present in the plant - as well as terpenes and sometimes flavonoids. Broad spectrum is essentially the same, but with all traces of THC removed in an additional purification process. Isolate is the purest from of CBD with no other cannabinoids - a favourite for PG/VG based liquids that are compatible with all standard vaping devices. When deciding which liquid to buy, also check for the presence of any additives or flavourings. By considering these factors you can find the proper CBD vape to suit your needs in the EU or UK market.
In conclusion: CBD vaping has become increasingly popular in the EU and UK due to its perceived benefits and ease of use. Using CBD vape products (such as those offered by Harmony) can potentially provide you with a convenient and efficient way to experience the many benefits of CBD.
It is essential to understand that vaping CBD is not meant to diagnose, treat or cure any medical conditions. However - many people may find some relief from various ailments through this method and science is slowly but surely giving reasons why. Be sure to consult with a medical professional before incorporating CBD vaping into your daily routine if you have any underlying health issues or are taking prescription medication.
Lastly: while vaping CBD may offer promising results for some individuals - it is crucial to stay informed about the latest research and regulations surrounding this industry! Always purchase your CBD vape products from reputable sources ensuring they comply with EU and UK guidelines.
