CBD is an increasingly popular remedy for people wanting a natural solution for their ailments or medical conditions.
Whether it’s for insomnia, chronic pain or anxiety, CBD is being touted by many as a fantastic all-around solution that leaves you feeling calm and relaxed. However, when it comes to consumption, not all CBD is equal and when it comes to vaping, it things get even more complicated. There’s CBD Vape Juice which is vaped in an appropriate vaping device similar to those used for nicotine e-liquid.
This contains CBD Extracts infused into a carrier substance that turns it into vapor. Then, there’s CBD Flowers which look similar to conventional cannabis flowers and are ground up and put into a vaporizer for dry herbs, then heated by a small oven. Yea, it’s a little complicated as mentioned but fret not! We’re about to unwrap it for you in the most transparent and straightforward way.
CBD Vape Juice
CBD Vape Juice is also known as CBD E-Liquid and CBD Vape among other nicknames. E-cigarettes have been around for approximately ten years and thousands of people have given up smoking thanks to them. They are considered an effective nicotine replacement system. Although the jury’s out on the long term effects of vaping E-cigarettes, it’s believed they are better for you than smoking.
A few years ago someone had the idea to infuse vape juice (which is made up of two food-grade substances called PG – Propylene Glycol and VG – Vegetable Glycerol.) Extracted CBD is mixed with the carrier liquids at various concentrations to offer people a choice in terms of strength. CBD Vape Juice contains no nicotine, is non-addictive and comes in a range of different flavors. You’ll need an appropriate vaping device or vape pen but a few minutes of research in the right places will get you right on track.
CBD Flowers are also referred to as CBD Buds or Hemp Flowers. They are specially cultivated, CBD-heavy strains of cannabis that contain only minuscule amounts of THC – the compound that gets you high. A wide range of CBD Flowers is available – mainly online – from vendors who specially cultivate their plants on Organic farms in the US and Europe to ensure high CBD and low THC. There are Sativa varieties of CBD Buds that are best used in the daytime for an uplifting feeling.
Then there are Indica CBD Flowers which are recommended for nighttime use and to treat things like chronic pain. CBD Flowers can be rolled into a joint or smoked in a pipe or bong, but they can also be vaporized in a suitable vaporizer. Desktop vaporizers like the Volcano and Arizer Extreme Q are two fantastic devices for vaping CBD. Portable options include The Mighty and the Firefly 2 vaporizers which are handheld and can be used when out and about.
Whether you ultimately decide to take your CBD in Vape Juice form or to vaporize it in its raw form always make sure you check that the CBD Flowers you’re buying come from reputable vendors who provide easy-to-read and transparent third-party lab results. Also, make sure you check the CBD profile of the strain you’re interested in, confirming it has the right CBD concentration for you (and of course little to no THC.)
If you want to give up smoking and enjoy the experience of vaporizing flowers or herbal material, vaping is a great option and is considered way healthier than combusting plant material into the lungs. Always do your research in advance and always read the label.
