What is CBD Vape Juice & What are The Main Ingredients?

While CBD has been around and used for thousands of years, CBD vape juice is a fairly new way to enjoy the cannabinoid. This is because vaporisers were not invented and widely available until 2003.

CBD vape juice contains 3 main ingredients, all of which are food-grade ingredients and so deemed safe for consumption

Other ingredients might include flavourings, depending on the eliquid you have. 

I should write here, that CBD vape juice and CBD vape oil are the same thing. It isn’t actually correct to call it vape oil, however, these terms are used interchangeably. It is really important to remember that you shouldn’t put tincture oil in your vape device. sed interchangeably.

It is really important to remember that you should NEVER put tincture oil in your vape device. 

Right, this leads us nicely into our next question… 

What is a CBD vaporiser?

A CBD vaporiser is a device used to vape the cannabinoid. This tool heats the contents in the chamber and converts it into vapor to be inhaled. 

They can also be used for vaping nicotine e liquids and come in different styles for your needs. 

There are some that allow you to vape dry herbs and others waxes, most commonly, they are designed for ejuices. 

When it comes to vaping CBD you don’t want to be using a sub ohm kit (these are the big kits with lots of buttons and functions). Instead, you want to use a smaller device, such as a starter pen or a basic pod.

This CBD vaporiser will heat the eliquid to the ideal temperature of around 200 degrees C. You would then draw the vapor into your mouth and lungs, then exhale. You won’t be blowing massive clouds with CBD, for one the juice is high in PG which isn’t cloudy, and for two the basic kits aren’t designed to make dense fog. 

Not sure how to use one of these vaporisers? The short video below, 30 seconds in explains the mouth to lung kit that you'd use for CBD.

How should I use CBD vape juice

You might decide to use your CBD vape juice every day. Maybe you have a set time, such as first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Or you might just use the vaporiser when you are in pain or suffering from a bout of anxiety. 

In terms of how to use CBD vape juice, you will want to follow the instructions of how to fill your kit. Top it up with your CBD vape juice and allow it to settle for 10 minutes or so. This will make sure that the e liquid has saturated the wicks, to avoid dry hits or burning your coil. (This tastes horrible and ruins your coil, so make sure you do allow it to settle!) 

What are CBD vape juice effects?

Firstly, let’s talk about what the CBD vape juice effects are not, and that is intoxicating. CBD will not get you high, however much you take. That is because it contains legal limits or absolutely no THC. 

THC is the cannabinoid that leaves you feeling ‘high’, hungry, giggly and sometimes sick.

Instead, the effects of vaping CBD are quite the opposite. People report feeling:

  • Relaxed
  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced anxiety 
  • Less stressed
  • Lifted mood
  • Alert/ drowsy - depending on the dose 

Adverse effects may include: 

  • Light headed, particularly when chain vaping
  • Dry mouth from vaping (keep water to hand!)

Benefits of CBD vape

There are many ways to take CBD and each way has its own benefits and drawbacks. 

Many people choose to vape CBD over other delivery methods due to the benefits of CBD vape juice. These include:

  1. Bioavailable- The cannabinoid enters your bloodstream via the capillaries in your lungs and is the fastest way to feel the effects
  2. Discrete and easy - There are not huge clouds or complex kits with CBD vaporisers 
  3. Authentic - You can get authentic cannabis flavours if you’re into that  

You can read further into the benefits of CBD vape juice on our blog

Other ways to take CBD are:

  • Edibles like chocolate and sweets
  • Tea and other drinks (the most recent trend is cocktails!)
  • Capsules
  • Lotions and creams
  • Cosmetics, bath bombs etc

Now, how about the benefits of CBD vape juice in terms of what conditions it might help with 

  • Seizures - There are prescription meds now which contain CBD to help reduce or prevent seizures. 
  • Depression - CBD may help to encourage your body to use its own serotonin. This is the hormone that makes us feel happy and lifts our moods. 
  • Anxiety - Feeling anxious affects our sleep and other parts of our lives. A dose of CBD vape juice is thought to reduce activity in the amygdala, helping with mood and anxiety.
  • Sleep conditions - Insomnia is one reason why people reach the CBD. In doses above 160mg it is said to help induce drowsiness, helping you to drift off. In lower doses it may actually help you to stay more alert, so don’t think CBD vape is just good before bed.
  • Anti tumor - There have been lots of studies into cannabinoids for cancer treatment. The Cancer Research website writes how results have found that different cannabinoids can, cause cell death, block cell growth, stop the development of blood vessels needed by tumors, reduce inflammation and reduce the ability of cancer to spread. CBD has also been reported to help with sickness in those undergoing chemo.
  • Inflammation - This is another area that has tonnes of research. There are so many conditions which cause or are caused by inflammation. CBD may help to reduce this.
  • Pain - There are a few ways in which CBD is thought to help those suffering with pain. One school of thought is that it attaches to the bodies receptors to change the way we perceive pain. 

Can you make CBD vape juice from CBD oil?

You can’t make your tincture drops into an e liquid, however, you can make CBD vape juice at home. 

You just need a few ingredients and it isn’t very complicated. You’d just need CBD isolate, VG and PG. If you want to get creative you can also add your own flavourings and really make it personal.

We go into some serious depth about making your own CBD e-liquid including a recipe on our blog how to make CBD vape juice.

Does CBD vape juice contain nicotine?

Your CBD vape oil should never contain nicotine. This means you shouldn’t buy it containing nicotine and you shouldn’t add a nicotine juice to it. This is because nicotine degrades CBD. 

If you also vape a nicotine juice and use the same device for both nicotine and CBD, make sure you keep the two separate. You might have two tanks if you use both juices interchangeably. Contaminating your CBD with nicotine is just going to ruin it. 

How do I take CBD vape?

It is easy to take CBD vape juice. You just need to make sure you have the right equipment. This will be:

  • A vaporiser such as a vape pen or pod kit
  • A CBD e liquid (not tincture drops / oil)

You simply fill up your chosen device, allow it to settle for 10 minutes or so, then fire it up according to the instructions. 

Once you have inhaled the vapor, you draw it into your mouth, then lungs. There is no need to hold the vapor in. Exhale and relax. 

Does CBD show on a drug test?

This is a question we are often asked. Some people have to have regular drug screenings for work. If this is you, then it is certainly something you’ll be thinking about. As CBD is legal it will not even be looked for on a drug test. However… 

Full spectrum CBD vape juice contains THC. This is where you might feel a little worried. The amount of THC is 0.2% and within the legal limits, so only your VERY sensitive tests will pick it up.

If you’re worried, then we suggest you choose a broad-spectrum or isolate, over the whole plant. Both of these contain zero THC so you can sleep easy that it won’t show up on a drug test. 

We actually did a video of our founder taking CBD every day for 10 days. Guess what, no THC showed up on the drugs test! You can watch our experiment here 

What types of CBD vape juice are there?

We’ve kind of touched on this already, but no worries if you skimmed past it or skipped ahead. There are three main types of CBD vape oils. Then these are divided down into flavours and strengths.

types of vape juice

Isolate is just CBD. It is extracted from the plant in such a way that everything else is removed.

Broad-spectrum contains CBD and terpenes. Terpenes work in synergy with CBD to create the entourage effect.

The whole plant contains exactly that. THC is filtered out, however, legal limits remain which is 0.2% maximum here in the UK.

Where can I buy CBD vape juice?
