One of the biggest reasons I was hesitant about getting started with CBD was that I was not a smoker.
One of the misconceptions I had was that the only way to inhale hemp and CBD oil was to smoke it ‘stoner style’ (like a joint).
The good news is that technology has solved many of the problems that come with smoking. Vape devices and vape juice have replaced dry flower, paper, and the cancer causing agents that burning them produce.
The Pros and Cons of Inhaling Cannabis Oils
There are advantages and disadvantages to all three methods of taking Hemp, CBD, and Cannabis oil
The biggest advantage that inhaling has over other methods is that you will enjoy the effects of your oil much sooner than with other methods.
(Edibles have to be digested before they hit your blood stream, increasing the amount of time it takes for you to feel any effects.
The only disadvantage is that the effects wear off sooner than with edibles or topicals, not a bad thing if you are looking for fast acting temporary relief.
When I feel myself getting frustrated, irritated, or if I have acute temporary discomfort, I use a vape device.
What Is a Vape Device?
A vaping device is a kind of vaporizer that heats up the oil just before it reaches the combustion point.
This releases only the necessary cannabinoids without other harmful byproducts which come from traditional smoking.These devices use ‘vape juice’ rather than dry flower.
Vape devices use ‘juice’ ( also called e-liquid) instead of dried leaves or flowers. Usually, vape juice is made of a mixture of glycol and vegetable glycerin. These safe (and vegan!) compounds create the vapor that delivers the oil to your body.
Vape juices can use nicotine, CBD oil, hemp oil, or cannabis oil (both psychoactive and non-psychoactive) as its main ingredient. But for the purpose of this article, we focus exclusively on CBD vape juice.
What Is CBD Vape Juice?
CBD vape juice is also known as CBD e-liquid and cannabis e-juice. It is a convenient and beneficial method for consuming CBD.
Like the oils and topicals, CBD vape juice wont get you high. But you will still get the healing benefits of hemp and cannabis without the psychoactive effect that makes the plant infamous.
CBD vape juice comes from either hemp CBD oil or marijuana CBD oil.
But for any oil to be considered legal, it must contain less than 1% THC. Hemp oils sold on the market and used in CBD vape juice usually contain about 0.3% THC – the stuff that gets you high and that governments frown on.
Like most e-liquids, CBD vape juice comes in a variety of flavors and strengths ranging from 100 to 1,000 mg. The higher the milligram dosage, the stronger the effects are.
If you are just starting out, I suggest you experiment with lower dosages, measure the effects for yourself, and then consider stepping up to higher dosages later in your journey!
How To Use CBD Vape Juice
If I am being completely honest, I was a little intimidated around veteran ‘stoners’. They knew how to roll tight joints, how to pack ‘bowls’, and use other paraphernalia that looked like science fiction.
I still wanted to be able to get the on-demand effects of smoking my CBD oil without the complicated rolling, packing, and engineering.
Using CBD vape juice was the solution that I am glad I found! Here is how the process works:
- Shake the bottle well before using to blend the vegetable glycerin with the CBD oil.
- Separate 20 drops in the cap of the bottle and add these drops to your vape cartomizer. A cartomizer is the part of your vape that is filled with absorbent material that soaks up your CBD vape juice. This material is wrapped around an electronic heating coil that releases the vapor when its activated.
- Once you are juiced up, wait a few seconds for the CBD vape juice to accumulate at the tip of the cartomizer.
- Switch the vape on to inhale the vaporized juice in and off to stop as much as you want
