Vaping CBD: The Full Guide on How to Get Started
Finally, the complete guide on how to vape CBD is here! Look inside and find out all about the benefits of vaping CBD oils and the best CBD vape products.
Using a vaporizer as a delivery method for CBD has exploded in popularity. Many people prefer vaping CBD because of how rapidly it can provide relief and how easy it is to control the dosage. Vaping devices can seem confusing to get started with, but they are quite simple.
Let's walk through the different parts and Learn How to Vape CBD!
How Vaping CBD Works:
Vaporizers have four main components: Battery, Tank, Heating Element, and CBD Vape Oil.
The battery powers a heating element inside of a tank that heats the liquid to the point of vaporization. As you draw on the tank or cartridge vapors, travel into the lungs to rapidly deliver CBD to your bloodstream. The solution used is very similar to the types used in nicotine e-liquid, just without the nicotine. There are many delicious flavor options for CBD vape juice like our Vape Craft Candy Watermelon or Vape Craft Strawberry Custard. The best part of all is that you can use all of these liquids with most refillable vaporizers on the market.
What is in CBD Vape Juice?
CBD Vape Juice, also commonly referred to as "CBD Vape Oil" or “CBD E-Liquid” consists of three main ingredients:
VG (Vegetable Glycerin) - VG is a thick, clear, and naturally occurring substance that has a slightly sweet flavor. Vegetable Glycerin is the primary producer of the "clouds" users exhale when vaping.
PG (Propylene Glycol) - PG is also clear, but much thinner, with more throat hit and synthetically made. Although synthetically made, Propylene Glycol is non-toxic and safe for human consumption. This liquid also has no flavor, so it tends to be better at highlighting flavors or terpenes that are sometimes used.
CBD (Cannabidiol) - CBD, is one of the two main active ingredients found in the marijuana plant. Unlike its more well-known cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-psychoactive. So you can safely consume CBD without the "high" or euphoric and sedative effects that most experience when using cannabis products that have THC.

What Kind of CBD is Right for You?
The differences between these two types of CBD vape juice are easy to understand if we break down their names.
Isolate, remain alone or apart from others. CBD is isolated, and these products have no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids.
Full-Spectrum CBD contains a whole variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. When extracting cannabinoids, they don't isolate the CBD, and the solution is left to include others like CBG and CBC. These other cannabinoids are known to have some effect, and when used together, they create an "entourage effect." The cannabinoids combine forces and often offer more significant pain relief. There has been some concern with Full-Spectrum CBD vapes oils and drug tests, due to a small percentage of THC that remains in Full-Spectrum products.
Rest easy; federal law mandates all CBD products be extracted from hemp and not marijuana. Hemp is required to contain less than 0.3% THC, so some THC will be in Full-Spectrum tinctures but not enough to make you feel any psychoactive effects or show up on a drug test.
If you are concerned about the effects of THC or testing positive on a drug test, the safest CBD liquid for you will be CBD Isolate. You will get all the benefits of CBD with the peace of mind that there is no THC.
What Strength CBD E-liquid Should I Use?
Most CBD vape liquids come in 30ml sized bottles and range in potencies between 500-1200mg. But, let's go ahead and break down this a bit further:
500mg/30ml = 16.7mg of CBD per 1ml
1200mg/30ml = 40mg of CBD per 1ml
Understanding how much CBD you will be ingesting per milliliter can greatly help you find the dose you need. Most people start around 20-40mg of CBD total for the day, but factors such as weight, type of pain, and amount of pain can raise or lower this starting point.
The best part about vaping CBD is how easy it will be to adjust your dosage. Start by vaping 1ml of your liquid, wait 10-30 minutes for relief, and if you still have pain, try vaping another .5-1ml. If you are still feeling uncomfortable, try upping your dose around 5-10mg at a time.
While all things are better in moderation, it is important to note a report from 2011 that found that humans can well tolerate doses as high as 1500mg.
What Kind of CBD Device Do I Need?
CBD vaporizers come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles.
In this next section, we will go through a few of the most common types and their pro & cons.
Disposable CBD Pods:
These are great options for beginners and very similar to all-in-one disposable devices, but with added benefits. Disposable CBD Pods generally come with two separate parts: Battery and Pod. The pods are single-use and disposable, while you keep and recharge the battery. Many different pod flavors are available and make it easy to swap flavors throughout the day. These are great for people who like using a variety of flavors and change them often!
All-In-One Disposable CBD Vapes:
One of the easiest devices to get started with and most simple to use. These devices are considered "all-in-one" devices and single-use. They come pre-charged, pre-filled, and ready to vape. Another benefit of these devices is that they are more compact and convenient for vaping on the go. Disposable CBD vapes do come with some drawbacks. These devices are single-use. So when your battery dies, or it runs out of the liquid, there is no way to recharge or refill the mod, and you will have to throw it away. Disposable CBD devices are perfect for beginners!
Refillable CBD Devices:
These devices come in the widest variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, mostly since you can also use them for nicotine e-liquids. Being able to refill your tank comes with some significant savings in the long run. The initial startup cost of your device may be more expensive, but you will be able to buy larger bottles of CBD vape liquid that will be a better deal. Just grab a bottle of Naked 100 Hawaiian Pog CBD vape juice, a device and you are set!
Do you already use a nicotine vape device? Then CBD carts might just be the perfect fit for you. More commonly called "CBD Carts" are pre-filled CBD atomizers. They use the same 510 connection many popular devices use and are simply screw into the top of the device.
If you do not have a device already, we also offer CBD cart compatible batteries here.
How to Use a CBD Vape?
Disposable and pre-filled CBD vapes are ready to use as soon as you get them!
Simply place to your mouth and inhale slow and steady. Start with 5-10 puffs then wait a few minutes to feel the effects.
Refillable devices can be a bit trickier, but are simple if you follow these couple steps:
-Fill tank/pod and WAIT 5-10 minutes for the liquid to saturate your tanks heating element
NOTE: The waiting period after filling is essential. Most vaporizers use cotton wicking to keep the heating element saturated. If your cotton has not fully absorbed your liquid, you risk burning your coil. A burnt coil will likely need replacement.
-Screw tank onto your battery
-Turn on, inhale, and enjoy your new device!
Benefits of Vaping CBD:
A significant advantage of vaping CBD over smoking CBD flower is cannabinoid retention. When burned, cannabis flower can lose many cannabinoids from excessive heat. Whereas with vaping, up to 90% of these cannabinoids will be retained for your enjoyment. Another benefit of vaping CBD is that you will no longer have to worry about offending odors. Vaporizers offer much less smell compared to the traditional burning of cannabis flowers.
Vaping CBD is a fantastic way to begin your journey with Cannabidiol!
