What is CBD E-liquid? | Guide to CBD Vape Oil

What is CBD E-liquid

Everything you need to know about CBD Ejuice

CBD vape juice, also called CBD vape oil, is a way in which people take the cannabinoid. This cannabinoid is said to help with a variety of conditions and ailments, such as anxiety, inflammation, depression, chronic pain, epilepsy, sleep disorders and more.

In this blog, we will share exactly what is CBD e-liquid and why you might use it. We also cover whether it is safe as well as the best kits to vape CBD. You’ll also learn about some mistakes to avoid!

What is CBD e-liquid?

You might have heard of CBD oil. CBD e-liquid is not an oil. It contains the cannabinoid but also contains PG and VG as a base for the e-liquid. Oil doesn’t move through devices well or your lungs for that matter. It is not suitable to inhale via a vape kit.

CBD eliquid contains the usual base ingredients of all vape juices.

  • PG

  • VG

  • Flavourings

  • CBD 

In CBD e-liquid you will not find nicotine. Nicotine degrades the cannabinoid so it is best to keep them separate. 

You will also not find as much VG as you would in other e-liquids. This is because VG is thicker and would make the liquid too dense when combined with the CBD. Instead, it is a high PG base. This high PG base means that you will be best to use a starter kit or basic pod rather than something with lots of airflows which can cause leaks.

What is CBD?

What is CBD

CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant is quite controversial, due to the fact it contains the psychoactive element THC. However, CBD doesn’t contain THC, or if it does it is a very small, legal dose which is less than 0.2%.

The cannabinoid has been used for thousands of years as an alternative and natural remedy. More recently, it has made its way to high street stores as more people realise the benefits. CBD shouldn’t have negative side effects or get you high, it is purely therapeutic.

How do you use CBD e-liquid?

CBD vape juice is meant to be vaped. Ideally, you will use a smaller kit, such as a pod device or a starter kit. This is because CBD vape liquid is high PG which means it is thinner. When you put a thin e-liquid in a big tank or could devise you’ll be leaking all over the place. 

You will fill your device up with CBD e-liquid, not CBD oil! Once filled up you can enjoy either authentic flavours of something like Green House, or something a little fruity such as CBD IBZ.

Can you vape CBD oil?

Would you put olive oil in your vape device? We’re guessing not. Make sure you keep the oil tincture drops for your tongue and the vape oil, for your vape device. Don’t get them mixed up. 

Oil is not designed to be inhaled. This is where the problem lies with the mysterious lung disease, also known as lipoid pneumonia. Lipoid pneumonia usually happens when animal fats or oils are inhaled.  

The oil will get stuck in your lungs, as it is not soluble in water. E-liquid is soluble in water, which is why it moves through the device and into your lungs and then back out. 

Does CBD vape oil contain terpenes?

When you buy full-spectrum CBD vape oil you will have the added benefits of terpenes. Terpenes have their own therapeutic benefits which work in synergy with the cannabinoid. You will also find less than 0.2% THC in full-spectrum vape oils, which is within the legal limit and will not have psychoactive effects. At Vape and Juice, we sell The Green House and Dutchie Originals, which are known for its quality terpenes profile.

Is it safe to vape CBD?

You might be wondering about this question after the deaths and illnesses from vaping THC in America. However, vaping THC is illegal. People have been obtaining THC cartridges from illegal outlets and businesses. These can be mixed with all sorts and you can never be 100% sure what you are taking. When you enjoy CBD from a reputable company you will be able to ask to see the certificate of analysis. This certificate will tell you exactly what it contains. 

Why would people inhale oil?

We agree, it sounds like a weird thing to do. However, on sale illegally is THC oil. THC oil is the cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant which will get you “high”. Users are then vaping the THC oil using cartridges and vape pod systems or other kits. 

The majority of those who died from this lung disease admitted to using THC oil. Those who didn’t were found to have vitamin E acetate in their system which is added to THC oil.

It is best not to add CBD oil tincture drops to your vape device. Instead, make sure you are using CBD vape e-liquid.  

CBD vape e-juice has been specially created and doesn’t contain oil, so it will not have the same effects as inhaling THC oil.

Best Device to Vape CBD?

In order to vape CBD, you will require a vape device. If you already vape nicotine then you may know a little about vape kits and e-liquids. However, CBD e-liquid is quite different from your regular nicotine e-juice. This is mainly down to the base which is used. In your usual e-juice, you will have a ratio of 50/50 PG/VG or as much as 20/80 PG/VG. It is the PG/VG ratio in CBD e-liquid which will determine the device. 

What is PG?

PG, also known as Propylene Glycol, is used as part of the base of e-juice. It is colourless and odourless. This is used in a 50/50 ratio in nicotine e-liquids and is of thin consistency.

What is VG?

VG, also known as Vegetable Glycerine, is thick with a slightly sweet taste. It is used by nicotine vapers to produce huge clouds.

Here are a few ideal devices for vaping CBD e-liquid.

Aspire Pockex
