So many health benefits are associated with the use of a CBD vape juice or oil. It is true that you can enjoy the same benefits by using CBD as a topical solution or digesting it. But, still, you there is a huge fan base for CBD vape oils. It all comes down to personal preferences. Some people enjoy the sensation of inhaling the compound, and they like it because vaping allows rapid absorption of CBD so there are almost instantaneous results.
There are some other reasons too. For instance:
- A great thing about CBD vape oils is that they are available in different flavors. Many people enjoy earthy flavor, which is usually the result of the oil being derived from hemp. However, some people don’t, so manufacturers have come with different techniques to mask the flavor with mint, vanilla or fruit or something more pleasant.
- The ease of use is yet another reason why people prefer vaping instead of eating or applying it topically. It seems the perfect choice if you’re already into vaping. All you have to do is add a few drops of the oil to your cartridge and inhale slowly to experience its effects.
Because of its ability to offer fast-acting relief, so many people suffering from pain caused by serious illnesses prefer vaping. But, you should also bear in mind that although inhaling CBD oils offers quick relief, they are usually quite short-lived, especially compared to other types of CBD-based products. In most cases, the effects wear off in about a couple of hours. Therefore, you may have to vape more often, which often makes people ask another question.
Can CBD vaping get you too high?
The truth is that if you’re buying from a quality manufacturer and they source their CBD oil from hemp, you don’t need to worry about getting too high. Reliable sellers use oils obtained from industrial hemp that contains higher levels of CBD but very low concentrations of THC, which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. You’re likely to get a high if CBD oil you use contains high levels (5%-20%) of THC, which usually happens if the oil comes from marijuana not hemp. So, knowing the source of the oil is of paramount importance.
Even if you’re taking CBD oils with lower concentrations of THC, your personal body chemistry will play a role in how you feel. Your body weight can change the equation too. However, some studies have shown that you should do fine if you take anywhere between 1mg and 6mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. Still, it is a good idea to stick to the lowest dose in the beginning and find out how it affects you.
Whether you enjoy vaping CBD because it helps you relax, even get a little high or want to try vaping for its medical benefits, it’s good to know there are options to make it more palatable and to help talking it fit into everyday lives. In all honesty, as long the THC levels in your vaping oil stay low, it’s pretty difficult to get stoned on a vape. In most people it produces more of a gentle buzz, like the inner warm glow you’d get from a scotch or couple of glasses of wine.
