What is CBD E-Liquid?

CBD E-Liquids – sometimes called vape oils or vape juices – are a category of vape product that utilise compounds derived from hemp, most importantly – CBD. CBD E-Liquids are used with vaporizers or CBD Vape Pens which turn the liquid into vapour that can be inhaled. This method of administration is widely considered to be the most effective way of taking CBD, and any other active ingredient for that matter.

What is Vaping?

Vaping is short for ‘vaporizing’ and refers to the practice of using a device to convert a liquid into a vapour that is then inhaled. Vaping has become hugely popular in recent years, thanks to its reputation as a healthier alternative to smoking. More recently, CBD vape products have taken the market by storm.

Is Vaping an Effective Way of Taking CBD

YES. Vaping is actually the most effective way of taking CBD and any other cannabinoid. This is because it has a high bioavailability, which means the amount of active ingredient that is effectively absorbed by the body.

Vaping delivers CBD directly to your lungs in the form of vapour. From here, there is only a very thin barrier to your bloodstream, where CBD can begin to be utilised. The short journey and minimal barriers means that a higher percentage of CBD is retained as it enters the body. And the benefits don’t stop there. The relatively low temperatures needed to vaporize CBD mean that more of the cannabinoid is preserved.

What’s the difference between CBD E-Liquid and CBD Oil?

Some people use the terms ‘CBD E-Liquid’ and ‘ CBD Oil’ interchangeably, but it is important to differentiate between these two kinds of products. While it is true that the term ‘CBD Vape Oils’ also refers to CBD E-Liquids, other kinds of CBD oils, such as supplements, should not be used in the same way as these products. In fact, it is important that you definitely don’t do this. CBD oil supplements and CBD Vape Oils are made in very different ways and should not be used interchangeably. The main difference between these two oils is the type of carrier oils used.

In CBD oil supplements any natural oils can technically be combined with the CBD extract. Common carrier oils in these products include coconut oil, hemp seed oil, and olive oil. But this is not the case with vape oils. While you might assume that these natural oils are harmless – and in many settings, you’d be right – they can cause complications when inhaled.

CBD E-Liquids are made from just a few ingredients – two of these ingredients are vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) which form the main carrier substances in these products.

Full-Spectrum vs Broad-Spectrum vs Isolate

CBD E-Liquids and other CBD vape products may contain additional hemp products, including other minor cannabinoids or terpenes. Three terms are used to describe the type of hemp extract in CBD products: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate.

Put simply, full-spectrum products represent the original cannabinoid profile of the plant they have been extracted from, including THC. Don’t worry though, most products available in the UK are sourced from hemp plants which, by nature, contain extremely low levels of this psychoactive compound. By contrast, broad-spectrum products, while they also contain a broad range of cannabinoids and terpenes, will have had some ingredients filtered out.

Unless otherwise stated on your chosen product, the chances are they it has been made using an isolate extract. This means that the majority of the other ingredients have been filtered out leaving behind near-pure CBD.

How are CBD E-Liquids Made?

CBD E-Liquids combine CBD extracts with the same ingredients used to make traditional vape products (as mentioned above). These extracts do not contain oil, for the reasons mentioned earlier and may originally come in the form of a powder. These are then mixed with a solution of PG/VG with the addition of any flavourings needed for the final product.

It is important to buy your CBD E-Liquids from a trusted retailer to ensure the highest quality and conformity to manufacturing standards.

How do you use CBD E-Liquids?

Using CBD E-Liquids couldn’t be easier, especially if you have a high-quality vaporizer or CBD vape pen. The process may vary slightly depending on the kind of vaporizer you are using, but the steps are generally the same:

All you need to do is open the chamber of your device and carefully pour in your CBD E-Liquid until it is full or has reached the point indicated. This can be a bit messy so be careful not to spill!

Then, close the lid of your chamber and you’re ready to go. Again, how you draw the CBD vapour from your device will vary but most simply require you to draw a breath from your mouthpiece.

How do you clean your vaporizer or vape pen after using CBD E-Liquid?

To get the most out of your CBD E-Liquid, the quality of your vaporizer is extremely important. It is therefore a good idea to regularly clean your device in order to keep it in good working order. When you vape any kind of e-liquid or concentrate, over time,  a residue will likely begin to build up in the chamber, mechanism or mouthpiece. If left alone, this residue can lead to complications with your device and potentially cause permanent damage.

We recommend cleaning your device at least a couple of time a month to keep it in top shape. You can take your device apart into separate components. Leaving them to soak in a solution of isopropyl alcohol for a while will make them easier to clean. Clean each part separately but be sure that the electrical components of your device are not exposed to water or any other liquid!

What is the best temperature for vaping CBD E-Liquid?

Temperature is an extremely important consideration when it comes to vaping any kind of CBD product – including CBD E-Liquids. The ideal temperature that should be applied for the best experience can vary based on a number of factors, including the exact formulation of the product, and your preferences when it comes to vaping.

Different cannabinoids and terpenes have different boiling points and so, they evaporate at different temperatures. Therefore, the ideal temperature really depends on what you are looking for from your CBD E-Liquid. While some people might favour a richer and more diverse flavour, others will prioritise stronger effects. For example, CBD has a boiling point of around 180°C while other minor cannabinoids that may be present in your product can have a much lower or higher boiling point.

The same is true of terpenes. Some of these compounds – which are responsible for a significant proportion of the flavour and scent of your vapour – begin to vaporize at temperatures as low as 22°C, though most will require much higher temperatures. The best approach when vaporizing your chosen CBD -E-Liquid is to start low and slowly increase the temperature setting. This will allow you to test out different temperatures and find the perfect setting for you!

Is Vaping Healthier than Smoking?

Smoking has fallen out of favour in recent years due to its serious health implications and risks. In its wake, however, vaping has gained massively in popularity – and not only among people looking to quit smoking. But, is vaping really healthier than smoking?

Vaping delivers CBD through vapour as opposed to smoke. This immediately makes it favourable to smoking as it avoids the combustion of plant materials (this is what releases carcinogens and the many other harmful chemicals associated with smoking). While research is still in its infancy, NHS England states that vaping is considered 95% healthier than smoking.

Are CBD E-Liquids Legal?

There are a lot of frequently asked questions when it comes to CBD, but this is one of the most common ones. Thankfully, it is an easy one to answer. CBD is 100% legal in the UK and many other countries around the world.

CBD E-Liquids are also legal in the UK, along with a whole host of other products containing the cannabinoid. Nonetheless, it is recommended that you only purchase from trusted retailers to ensure compliance with manufacturing and regulation practices.

Will CBD Make Me High?

Another question that persists despite the ever-growing popularity of CBD is this: ‘Will it make me high?’. CBDE-Liquids– whether full-spectrum, broad-spectrum or isolates – are made following the same guidelines as any other CBD products.

This means that there are extremely stringent measures on the amount of THC – that’s the main psychoactive ingredient of cannabis – permitted in these products. Furthermore, the vast majority of CBD products available in the UK are made from hemp plants that contain no more than 0.2% THC.
