To stay up to speed with the current vape news , and understand more about vaping CBD oil, here are some of the things you need to know.
Is Vaping CBD Oil Safe
Recently vaping has been shed under a bad light with a lot of scary information on the damage vaping can cause to your lungs. This fear-mongering has led a lot of people to be wary of vaping and for beginners, this can turn them off of vaping completely. Now while there is some merit it only occurs when consumers use illegally bought products bought from an unreliable source.
The fact is vaping is a safe way to consume CBD as long as you ensure you buy all your products from a reliable, reputable source.
CBD Oil Made for Tinctures is Different from CBD Vape Oil
One common factor that most people are unaware of is the CBD oil that is usually used as an oral tincture or for cosmetic use is quite different from CBD vape oil that is usually used for vape shop. CBD is an abbreviation of cannabidiol one of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. CBD is usually obtained from hemp. Once it is extracted it is infused into different products such as CBD oil and CBD vape oil. To make CBD oil the extract is diluted into the oil. However, you should note that this oil should not be and can pose a serious health risk.
CBD vape oil despite its name does not contain any oil. A better label for it is CBD vape juice. It is also commonly known as e-juice or e-liquid. To make CBD vape oil, CBD extract is diluted in base fluids like vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol plus flavorings making it easy to inhale. You should also note that since CBD vape juice is made from food-grade ingredients, it can be ingested.
The Difference between Full-Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate
As you interact with CBD vape oil, you are certainly going to meet these three terms. These are the three basic forms that CBD vape oil comes in
Full Spectrum– this form contains all the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant including THC (though in trace amounts less than 0.3%). This type of product is the most suitable for creating the ‘entourage effect’ (a theory that claims that cannabis works best when all its cannabinoids work together rather than alone).
Broad Spectrum– this form contains all other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant except THC, which is removed during initial extraction. This product still creates the ‘entourage effect’ but without THC.
CBD Isolate– this is a form that contains the purest form of CBD. All other components are removed and it usually contains about 99% of pure CBD.
Can Vaping CBD oil get you high?
Fortunately or unfortunately depending on your preferences, CBD cannot get you high. Though CBD is one of the two active components in the cannabis plant, it is not psychoactive. This is means that it does not cause the ‘high’ that is famously associated with marijuana use. The component responsible for this is THC, the other active component found in the cannabis plant. CBD usually made for vaping contains less than 0.3% of THC which is not enough to get you high. Furthermore, CBD might moderate your high as it prevents your body from fully breaking down the THC.
Is CBD vaping legal?
Well, this will depend on where you are. In 2018 under the Hemp Farming Act, the federal government made all hemp products including CBD legal in all 50 states by labeling it an agricultural product rather than a schedule 1 narcotic as long as the product contains less than 0.3% of THC. However, there is still a lot of grey area on the legality of CBD products. While the product may be federally legal, things may be different when it comes to state laws. Each state has different restrictions with some states restricting it to medical use only.Your best option if you do decide to vape CBD is to check out your state laws just to be sure.
The fact is, vaping is a safe and effective way to benefit from all the perks of consuming CBD. If you are thinking of taking up CBD vaping ensure you have all your information right and use products from a legitimate source.
