If you are a vaper, you may have heard about the incredible health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), and you may be considering getting a CBD vape liquid. In this article, we’ll look at all the components of a CBD vape liquid so that you can make an informed decision. But before we do that, we need to look at some basic things about CBD.
CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Unlike normal vape liquids, CBD will not get you high or give you a buzz like normal vape liquids that contain nicotine. Although CBD is derived from the hemp plant, it does not get you stoned. This is because it is different from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the main psychoactive component in the cannabis plant. Although CBD and THC have a similar chemical structure, they have different effects on the body. Moreover, most CBD products on the market are sourced from industrial hemp. Hemp has less than 1 percent of THC, but a high level of CBD.
Now that we’ve covered the basics let’s look at the components of CBD vape liquids
Vegetable glycerin is one of the base ingredients of vape liquids. It is thick, colorless and has a slightly sweet taste. Vegetable glycerin contributes to the cloud production of e-liquids. It is usually derived from coconut oil, palm oil or soyabean oil. Vegetable glycerin is not only used for making e-liquids but also has other uses such in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.
Propylene glycol is another base ingredient in vape liquids. It is also used in other products including foods. It is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. Propylene glycol contributes to the intensity of the throat hit that you get from vaping an e-liquid. Unlike vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol has no effect on the flavor of e-liquids because it is tasteless. Some people are allergic to propylene glycol. Therefore, you will find some e-liquids on the market that do not contain propylene glycol.
E-liquids come with varying levels of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. If you are new to vaping, experiment with different concentration levels until you find what you are comfortable with.
E-liquids come with all types of flavors. You will find e-liquids with all kinds of flavors including dessert vapes, breakfast vapes, candy vapes, and a lot more. The flavoring used in e-liquids are food-grade and are safe for vaping. You are likely to find an e-liquid with the flavor of your favorite treat.
Regular e-liquids come with nicotine. However, CBD e-liquids are infused with CBD. CBD e-liquids come with different CBD concentration levels. If you are new to using CBD, it is best to start with a low concentration level. You can choose to increase the concentration level if you are not satisfied with the effects that you get.
Vaping CBD allows the compound to get into your bloodstream quickly. There are many health benefits of vaping this compound. Instead of vaping CBD, you could also choose to get a CBD vape liquid and mix it with your favorite e-juice.
