How does CBD Vape make you feel?

Are you curious about how CBD vape might make you feel? Well, you're not alone. As CBD becomes increasingly popular in the wellness world, more and more people are turning to vaping as a convenient and enjoyable way to experience the benefits of this natural compound.

Harmony - a pioneer of CBD vaping in Europe - has played a significant role in popularising this method. Vaping CBD allows for quicker absorption into your bloodstream leading to a faster onset of effects [1].  Many users report feeling a sense of relaxation and calm after vaping CBD; though, it is important to note that it won't make you feel high like THC would as it doesn't have the same psychoactive effects. 

So why not give it a try? But remember: not all CBD products are created equal! Do your research and choose high quality products from reputable sources. With the right blend and dosage you might soon discover a new way to unwind, support your overall wellness and enjoy the experience in the process.

What Is CBD Vape?

CBD, Cannabidiol and Cannabinoids

CBD - or cannabidiol - is one of many compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds known as cannabinoids each have unique properties and effects. CBD is a non psychotropic cannabinoid: meaning it doesn't produce the "high" associated with the psychoactive THC (another cannabinoid).

Vaping CBD vs Vaping Nicotine

When it comes to vaping there are some significant differences between CBD and nicotine; When you take CBD through vaping it can help you experience the effects of cannabidiol without the addictive properties related to nicotine. Many users report a feeling of relaxation and calm after using CBD e-liquid and it may even help with sleep or anxiety. On the other hand: vaping nicotine can have negative health effects including addictive qualities and potential harm to lung function.

Will CBD Vape get you High?

CBD vape will not cause a high as it does not contain THC - the psychotropic compound found in cannabis! Using CBD vape products may help you experience the various benefits of CBD without feeling intoxicated. You can enjoy vaping CBD with out worrying about impairment.

How long does CBD Vape take to Work?

The onset of CBD vape effects can be quite rapid. Since you are inhaling the CBD directly into your lungs it enters your bloodstream quickly, and this leads to faster effects [1]. Most users report feeling the benefits of CBD vape within a few minutes of use; however, the specific timing can vary depending on factors such as the concentration of CBD and individual differences in metabolism and sensitivity.

How long do the Effects of CBD Vape last?

The duration of CBD vape effects can vary for each individual: Generally, the effects of vaping CBD can last anywhere from 2 to 6 hours. This can depend on factors like dosage, concentration and personal metabolism. It is essential to find the right balance for your body! So starting with a smaller amount and adjusting as necessary can help determine what works best for you.

Is CBD Vape addictive?

CBD vape is not considered addictive. In fact CBD has been found to have potential anti addictive properties [2]; this can make it a safer alternative to nicotine vaping! As a non psychotropic cannabinoid CBD does not produce the same kind of dependency or withdrawal symptoms that are often associated with addictive substances. When vaping CBD you can enjoy the benefits of the compound without the risk of developing an addiction or negative side effects.

In conclusion: CBD vaping offers a quick and effective way to experience the many benefits of cannabidiol - without the harmful effects of nicotine or the psychotropic properties of THC.

How CBD Vape Makes You Feel

Effects on Anxiety and Stress

When you use CBD vape, you may experience a sense of relaxation and calm. Some people find that it helps in reducing their anxiety and stress levels [3]. As you inhale the CBD vapour it quickly enters your bloodstream and starts to interact with the endocannabinoid system of your body [4] promoting homeostasis and balance. You might notice a subtle soothing effect that washes over your mind and body.

Pain Relief and Sleep

CBD vape can potentially help in managing pain symptoms [5]. Whether you are dealing with chronic pain or temporary discomfort using CBD vape might offer some relief. And there’s even more: if you are having trouble sleeping CBD vape could assist in improving your sleep quality [6]. As you vape CBD the calming effects may help in preparing your body and mind for a restful night of sleep.

Focus and Mood Boost

CBD vaping may provide a gentle boost to your focus and mood. As the CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system [4] it may positively influence the serotonin receptors in your brain. This can lead to a subtle uplift in mood and improved concentration: you could experience a feeling of mental clarity and emotional balance throughout your day.

Hormonal Balance and Menstrual Symptoms

For some CBD vape may help in maintaining hormonal balance and alleviating menstrual symptoms [7] like cramps, bloating and mood swings. The antiinflammatory properties of CBD [5] can potentially assist in reducing pain and discomfort during your period; meanwhile the calming effects may help you feel more relaxed amidst hormonal fluctuations.

Exercise and Recovery

Incorporating CBD vape into your exercise routine could support your body in recovering more efficiently. The antiinflammatory effects may assist in reducing muscle soreness and inflammation [8] allowing you to resume your activities sooner. But that’s not all: the relaxation properties could promote better sleep essential for effective recovery.

Influence on Creativity and Temporal Awareness

CBD vaping might impact creativity and temporal awareness in different ways: While some users report feeling more creative and open minded,  others may experience a heightened sense of focus and concentration. The calming effects can potentially help you feel more present and connected with the task at hand - allowing your thoughts to flow with greater ease.

CBD Vape vs Other CBD Products

In this section we will explore the differences between CBD vape and other CBD products such as oils, skincare, gummies and supplements. We will discuss how each product can affect you differently and help you decide which form is best for your needs.

CBD Oil and Spray

CBD oil and CBD tincture is often confused as both involve the use of a liquid form of CBD. However: tinctures are typically alcohol based. This is making them less stable while oils are maintaining their potency for a longer time. Both forms are usually taken sublingually for quick absorption or added to food or beverages. These products are a great option if you want a discreet and convenient way to consume CBD without vaping.


  • Alcohol based

  • Can be taken sublingually

  • Shorter shelf life


  • Not alcohol based

  • Can be used topically or ingested

  • Longer shelf life

Skincare and Topicals

If you are a fan of skincare you will be happy to know that - Harmony - offers an amazing selection of CBD skincare products. These products make use of CBDs anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties [9] which might be beneficial for your skin. Topical CBD products are absorbed through the skin and can help address specific concerns in a targeted area [10]. These are a great option for non smokers looking to incorporate CBD into their routine.


  • May include creams, lotions and balms

  • Can be applied directly to the skin

  • Focus on promoting healthy skin and addressing skin issues


  • May include salves, rubs and patches

  • Can be used to target specific areas of discomfort

  • Focus on providing localized relief

Gummies and Supplements

When it comes to CBD edibles - CBD gummies are a popular choice; Capsules or softgels offer another convenient way to consume CBD. Gummies can be a tasty and enjoyable option  while capsules and softgels offer an easy to swallow controlled dosage. Both gummies and capsules however, might have a slower onset of effects due to the digestive process.


  • Tasty and easy to consume

  • Can be taken discreetly

  • Widely available in various flavours and strengths


  • Easy to swallow

  • Discreet with controlled dosage

  • Easy to incorporate into your daily routine

In summary: CBD vape and other CBD products have different methods of application, onset times and user experiences. While vaping might offer a faster onset of effects [1] - products like oils, gummies and topicals can provide a more discreet and enjoyable way to incorporate CBD into your life.

The Science of CBD Vaping

The Endocannabinoid System

When you vape CBD it interacts with your body's endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a complex cell signalling system that plays a crucial role in maintaining your body's overall balance - or homeostasis. It consists of endocannabinoids, receptors and enzymes that all work together to regulate essential physiological processes such as mood, sleep and immune response [11].

Cannabinoid Receptors CB1 and CB2

Your ECS has two primary receptors: CB1 and CB2 - CB1 receptors are mostly found in your brain while CB2 receptors are more prevalent in your immune system. CBD has a weaker affinity for binding directly to these receptors. Unlike THC, the psychotropic compound in cannabis. Instead CBD indirectly influences these receptors and can modulate the effects of other endocannabinoids [4]  resulting in a more balanced and stable ECS.

Absorption and Bioavailability

Vaping CBD allows for a rapid and efficient absorption into your bloodstream [1]. When you inhale CBD vapour it quickly passes through your lungs and enters your bloodstream - providing near immediate effects. This method of consumption has a higher bioavailability meaning your body can more readily absorb and use the CBD you inhale.

When vaping CBD it is essential to use high quality products and adjust your dosage according to your needs and preferences. Paying attention to your bodys response can help you determine the right amount of CBD to vape for your desired effects.

Remember that, while CBD has wellness benefits it is not intended to treat any medical conditions and you should consult a healthcare professional if you have any concerns or questions about incorporating CBD into your routine.

Potential Side Effects

Interaction with Other Medication

Whilst CBD is generally considered safe it may interact with certain medications you are taking [12]. Some of these interactions could potentially reduce the effectiveness of your prescribed medicine. However - they may only occur if you consume very high quantities of CBD. Nonetheless it is crucial to consult your doctor before using CBD vape products if you are on any medication; to ensure your utmost safety!

Dry Mouth and Fatigue

CBD vape may sometimes cause dry mouth or fatigue in some users - especially when used in high quantities. It is important to make sure you are staying hydrated and getting enough rest to combat these potential effects should you experience any. It is worth noting that these side effects often occur with other CBD applications and not necessarily caused by vaping products alone.

Motor Skills and Driving

In rare instances using CBD vape may have an impact on your motor skills - especially if you are consuming excessive amounts. Although this effect is unlikely you should be cautious if you plan to drive or perform activities that require heightened concentration after using CBD vape. It is always best to be responsible and ensure your own safety - as well as that of others around you!

Consulting a Doctor

Before beginning to use CBD vape products it is wise to consult with a medical professional - particularly if you have any preexisting conditions or are taking medications. They can provide guidance on whether CBD is suitable for you or if there are any potential interactions to be aware of.  Remember to always prioritise your health and well being by seeking professional advice.

Legality of CBD Vaping

Cannabis vs Hemp

When it comes to CBD Vaping it is important to differentiate between cannabis and hemp. Cannabis derived CBD comes from marijuana plants whereas hemp derived CBD originates from industrial hemp plants. The latter contains less than  0.3% THC which means it won't get you high. Hemp derived CBD is generally considered legal in most regions while cannabis derived CBD is often subject to stricter regulations.

European Regulations

In Europe CBD falls under regulations that primarily focus on industrial hemp production. As long as the hemp plants used for extracting CBD contain less than 0.3% THC - it is generally legal. This means that you can legally enjoy vaping products derived from industrial hemp without worrying about running afoul of the law. However: make sure to check local regulations in your specific European country as they may slightly differ!

Drug Test Considerations

While using CBD vape products it's crucial to remember that drug tests often screen for THC rather than CBD itself! With Harmony's CBD vape juices, which are made with CBD isolate containing 0.0% THC you can confidently continue vaping without worrying about THC related drug test complications. Be aware however, that consuming full-spectrum products with 0.3% THC or less might result in a positive drug test - when taken regularly in high quantities and for a long time [13].

Harmony: CBD you can trust

Harmony is committed to providing high quality legal CBD vaping products that cater to your needs. We only use CBD raw materials from industrial hemp containing less than  0.3% THC to ensure a smooth and legal experience. With trusted relationships with suppliers in Europe Harmony monitors and follows the current legal situation - for both your safety and peace of mind.

Choosing the Right CBD Vape Product

Devices: Vape Pens and Disposables

When choosing a CBD vape product consider the type of device that best suits your needs. Vape pens - such as the GO S Vape Pen offered by Harmony - offer a reusable option while disposables - like the FLOW - provide a convenient single-use experience. Both options can help you enjoy your CBD vape experience; so it is up to you to decide what works best for you!

Dosage and Concentration

Harmony offers a range of CBD vape juice concentrations from 30 to 600mg CBD. As a new CBD vaper it is recommended to start with lower concentrations and gradually increase as needed; experienced vapers may prefer higher concentrations to maximise their CBD intake. Keep in mind that finding the right balance is important for a pleasant vaping experience.

Full Spectrum CBD vs Isolate CBD

You will come across three main types of CBD when browsing vape products - full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD and isolate. Full spectrum CBD contains other beneficial compounds from the hemp plant including traces of THC. Broad spectrum CBD is the same, but with all THC removed. Isolate is 100% pure CBD with no other compounds. The type you choose depends on your preference for experiencing the potential benefits of whole-plant compounds or a pure CBD experience. It might be that different types of CBD make you feel different. If you are new to CBD, it might be best to start with isolate to get familiar with and feel the effects of CBD alone. Once you know how much CBD you would like to use, you can switch to another source of CBD to see how it affects the effects and benefits you feel.

What is in Harmony CBD Vape Juices

Harmony prides itself on producing high- quality CBD e-liquids using the finest ingredients: PG, VG and CBD isolate.

How does CBD Vape make you feel: A Recap

As you explore the world of CBD vaping you might be curious about how it will make you feel. Vaping CBD is a popular method of consumption due to its quick onset of effects and ease of use - Here is a recap of what you can expect when using CBD vape products:

First of all it is essential to understand that CBD is a non psychotropic compound, which means it will not get you "high" like THC often found in cannabis. Many users report that vaping CBD helps them unwind and alleviate stress giving them a more balanced state of mind. While scientific research is still ongoing to understand the full spectrum of CBDs benefits, many anecdotal reports suggest it can be beneficial for managing various forms of discomfort.

Just remember that your individual experience with CBD may vary - and it is always wise to start with a low dose and gradually increase until you find the optimal level for your personal needs. As you experiment with CBD vaping take note of how it makes you feel and adjust accordingly.
