Vaping has now become one of the most popular ways to use CBD. There is a wide range of products and oils available to use, and many people have started reaping the benefits.
CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, occurs naturally in hemp, a similar cannabis plant to marijuana.
It has many beneficial properties and can help alleviate symptoms associated with:
CBD can be used in many forms including edibles, CBD oil tinctures, creams, and the most common – CBD vape.
However, if you use, prescribed medications consult your doctor before using a CBD vape or other product.
Side effects of the CBD vape
The research into the effects of CBD is still very new. A recent study concluded that there were some effects associated with its use.
The most commonly documented side effect was mild drowsiness, which was highest among first-time users. Evidence shows that this can subside when the CBD vape is used regularly.
High doses probably cause drowsiness, so if you’re starting, stick to a low or medium amount which has shown to produce an opposite effect.
Other effects include a euphoric feeling, hunger (or ‘munchies’ as it is known colloquially), and red eyes – which are wrongly associated with being high.
It was found that compared to many prescribed drugs, the side effects of CBD are less pronounced.
When it comes to dosages, there is no one answer for what will work for you.
Many factors will affect the dosage, including:
- Symptoms being treated
- Strength of CBD juice
These factors together will yield different results for each person.
Typically, a cartridge with 100mg of CBD can provide 1-2mg of CBD with each toke. Depending on the pen and strength of the CBD juice, you can take a bit more or less than that.
Will a CBD vape get you high?
[Unfortunately :D] CBD will not get you high unless it is derived from marijuana plants that contain THC.
Most CBD created for vaping is extracted from industrial hemp, which only contains trace amounts of THC (only up to 0.3%) and is not enough to get you high.
If you are concerned about failing a drug test, however, there are many THC-free options.
Additionally, CBD moderates the high that THC produces by preventing the break up of THC entirely. If you ever feel like you are too high from regular marijuana use (in the places that it is legal), you can use CBD oil, and it will help with reducing anxiety and paranoia typically associated with THC.
Other ways to use CBD
A CBD vape is not the only way you can use it, but it just happens to be the best and most popular.
There are also oral tinctures, patches, creams, drinks, edibles, and CBD isolate powder.
CBD isolate powder is very diverse and can be used to make edibles as it usually has 99% pure CBD. You can add it to your favorite recipes or make CBD infused butter or oil for cooking.
Stay safe when using these products because while fun, they can still have adverse effects. Maybe try experimenting, or mixing them up once in a while, and always make sure to chat with your doctor before you try them.
