Why Do People Vape CBD Oil?
One of the common reasons some people prefer vaping CBD rather than ingesting it, for example, is because of how it takes effect in your system. With vaping you're inhaling the CBD; it goes through your lungs and then you exhale out the vapour. As that happens, the CBD has an almost immediate effect, causing feelings of relief and an energy boost similar to caffeine.
CBD oils, and other forms that can be ingested, can take up to an hour before any effect is felt. For some people who are suffering from conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, or anxiety and depression, this is not giving them the instant relief that they are after, so they prefer a much quicker method of getting CBD into their system.
How Do You Vape CBD?
You can vape CBD in a variety of ways. Every vape is different; however, they all have these basic parts to them: a battery, an atomizer (which is a heating element), a mouthpiece and a chamber to hold whatever you want to vape. The atomizer vaporizes the CBD. When it comes into contact with the chamber, you can inhale the resulting vapour through the mouthpiece.
Types of E-Cigarettes for Vaping CBD
There are two distinct styles of e-cigarettes that can be used for vaping CBD. The first type is the Vape Pen, which is used for concentrates. It has a chamber with a heating coil in the bottom that vaporizes the CBD isolate, which you place directly onto the coils. The only problem with vape pens is that the coil must be replaced frequently as it eventually burns out. Each coil can cost up to £20 every time, meaning it can be taxing on your wallet and your vape pen.
The second style of e-cigarette creates the vapour clouds used by vaping enthusiasts all around the world. This is the “tank style” vape. Tanks use e-liquid, which is usually a mixture of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavourings, and in this case CBD. The heating coil inside is usually wrapped with cotton, nylon or silica wick to absorb the e-liquid into it.
Types of Tank Vape
When it comes to tank vapes, there are two variations: ones that need to be disposed of and ones you can refill. The disposables are also known as “cartomizers” because they use pre-filled, disposable holders normally made with cheap parts, which can be of low quality. If used without proper knowledge, the coil and wick can start to burn, leaving everything inside the vape tank unusable. Users can add their own e-liquid to refillable vapes, whether through pre-filled cartridges or completely made from the ground up.
For tobacco smokers or vaping beginners, a vape tank you can refill is the most common style that most vape users use. It can also be customised extensively, which makes it the most cost-effective vape to own; however, for someone who has never smoked or even touched a vape, a refillable pen that uses CBD concentrates rather than e-liquid is also a good alternative. This is much more suitable for people starting up who would rather use a standard vape pen that isn’t as customisable for the sake of simplicity.
How Can Vaping CBD Benefit Me?
Vaping CBD has a one up on normal concentrates and e-liquids: it isn't addictive. Both tobacco users and even e-cig users can get addicted to nicotine; it gives you feelings of relief, sure, but as stated it is highly addicting to the point you can end up wanting more within 30 minutes of smoking a cigarette or using up one standard e-liquid cartridge.
CBD e-liquids and concentrates, on the other hand, do not contain any nicotine. This means that not only do you get relief and other medical benefits from it, but you are also not inhaling anything addictive, so you can reduce how much you need to vape a day.
