CBD e-liquid is the fluid used in electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) and vaporizers. You will, therefore, need either an e-cigarette or the vaporizer to use CBD E-Liquids (or CBD vape juice, as it is sometimes referred to).
Vaporizing CBD E-Liquids has proven to be a quick and effective way of administering CBD. As opposed to CBD oil, which has to be absorbed via the mouth or stomach, the CBD in vape liquid diffuses almost immediately into the bloodstream via the lungs, resulting in a high yield and rapid effects.
In fact, CBD e-liquids have an almost 100% absorption rate. This makes them popular with those who desire fast-acting effects, such as sufferers of pain. Vaping CBD is also popular with those who enjoy the act of inhaling, such as smokers.
However, as CBD e-liquid is a relatively new product on the market, a lack of regulations and ongoing discussions on best practices means that not all CBD e-liquid is the same. In effect, different companies are using different base oils and ingredients, and some of these may be more suited to vaporization than others.
As mentioned above, the fast-acting effects of vaporizing CBD e-liquids are favoured by those who require immediate relief from pain, but it can also be a convenient method of application for people who prefer not to swallow capsules or oils, or people who enjoy the act of smoking.
With so many people using vape pens these days, vaporizing CBD e-liquid can be done discreetly when you’re out and about in public, around friends or even at work, making it useful for treating various conditions that require a regular dosage, such as anxiety, depression, stress, arthritis, migraine, nausea, and more.
How much CBD you should consume depends on a number of things, such as the condition you are treating or reason for taking CBD, any medications you may be on, time of day, etc. Starting slow and experimenting is the only true way to find what works for you.
Different e-liquids will also have varying concentrations of CBD, so it is always best to start off with a small dose, say one or two puffs once or twice a day, and up your intake until your symptoms are relieved or the desired effects are attained.
