What Is CBD Vaping?
By now it is a term I know all of us are familiar with. If not, congratulations on your successful journey through the universe and welcome to Earth! I’ll assume you arrived here through one of those metal monoliths.
Ok. Now that I'm finished alienating my audience, we can talk a little bit about vaping and how it pertains to CBD, what kind of vape products are available to me, and what are the benefits?
Vaping is the act of inhaling the vapor of oil that has been heating into a gas. There are two main types of oils used: Hemp-seed oil and CBD oil.
These are commonly confused with each other so it is important to know the difference.. And the difference is this:
What Is CBD And Hemp-Seed Oil?
Hemp-seed oil derives from the seeds of the cannabis sativa plant. It does not contain any THC, so you will not get high inhaling hemp-seed oil; it also contains minimal CBD too.
For this reason, it is not often used for recreational purposes. Hemp-seed oil is preferred for its higher amounts of nutrients and other bio-active components.
CBD oil is in fact made from the cannabis sativa plant itself, not its seeds. CBD oil can be broken down into three categories: Full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD-isolate.
Full spectrum means the product has all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa plant, this includes: THC, CBG, CBN, and others.
Broad spectrum means the product will have all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids, minus THC.
CBD isolate just includes CBD and nothing else.
Why Become A CBD Vape God?
Vaping is by far one, if not the most, popular way for consuming hemp-derived products. To many consumers it is the most obvious way to use; meaning, I believe vaping is viewed as the standard.
Most people tend to associate cannabis with smoking and vaping is the new way to smoke.
At least this was my line of thinking (who is the alien now?). Personally, I was not not aware of the many different products that were available before I got into the CBD business.
One reason why vaping remains so popular is because it gives you an immediate effect.
One of my favorite things to do is use a vape pen after a long day at work - or after writing a killer blog.
This way I get an instant relief from stress that continuously builds all day long day, as stress loves to do. This might not be the same for all, but I usually begin to feel the full effects of CBD after 15 minutes of inhalation.
This is fantastic when compared to edibles, which usually take upwards of an hour before they begin to take effect.
We find that most people typically find their own routine/strength with vaping CBD pretty quickly. This form of CBD is great for situational, as-needed relief.
Another benefit to vaping is the economical value, especially if you choose E-liquid vapes. These allow you to refill the cartridge after it empties.
Even with standard vaped you will only need to buy the actual vape pen, the base that heats the oil, once.
What Are Vaping Strengths And Which One Is Right For Me?
When consuming CBD by tincture, capsule, cream, or edible, most people will use the product once, maybe twice a day. Just like you would for any other supplement that you have added to your daily routine.
You wouldn't apply lotion every fifteen minutes or take an Advil every hour, right? The opposite can be said for vaping CBD; vaping is something you can constantly come back to as the day goes on.
The right amount is entirely based on the user, which usually depends on how the day is going.
Most people find best results when they take a couple of puffs in the moment they need relief. Then, take a few more puffs as the night goes on.
Because the onset for effect is the fastest when it comes to vaping, it’s very easy to find the right amount for you.
What Are The Safety Concerns For Vaping CBD?
One downside for using vapes is product waste. This is something you might have never given any consideration, but you are essentially losing half of the product through exhalation.
Now, this isn’t as extreme as it might sound. Half of your oil shouldn’t be viewed as going to waste. It is just something to take in consideration when purchasing hemp-derived products.
Edibles might take longer to set in, but you have a higher efficiency rating; vaping will give you instant relief, but with less efficiency.
What we tell our customers when they ask about vaping is this: The doctors will tell you the only thing that is supposed to go in your lungs is air.
We say this not because vaping is harmful, but because it is the truth. As obvious as it sounds, your lungs were made with the intention to only inhale oxygen. Plain and simple.
Now, this might not be what you were wanting to hear. It is difficult to explain the relationship between smoking and your lungs. There has not been any evidence to show that smoking CBD is harmful like to you much like E-cigarette smoking or hookah is.
You have probably been made a ware of some health issues in relation to vaping. These negative health issues center on Vitamin E acetate, which is only found in nicotine based vape products.
As of yet, there is no evidence of legit hemp-derived vapes containing vitamin E acetate. When I say legit, I mean the product has been approved by the U.S Hemp Authority, which is the leading voice for anything CBD.
This is why we at Certified Hump Hub only sell products from companies who have been approved by the U.S Hemp Authority.
So, as long you avoid buying from shady retail stores that do not care about the authenticity of their merchandise, you will not have to worry about Vitamin E Acetate.
