As the use of medicinal cannabis in studies becomes more widespread, we’re learning just how beneficial cannabis can be for a variety of ailments. From the purely medicinal effects of the cannabinoid CBD, to the healthier ways of consuming the plant, you just may arrive at the option of vaping CBD oil. We’re here to tell you why you should try vaping CBD as soon as possible!

Benefits of CBD Oil

First, let’s remind ourselves of the benefits of CBD oil. CBD is one of the most common cannabinoids, but unlike THC, it has no psychoactive effects whatsoever. CBD excels in relieving pain as well as improving mood. It has proven effective at treating muscle soreness and inflammatory issues, and some studies suggest it can target neurological conditions such as epilepsy and migraines.

Benefits of Vaping CBD Oil

Vaping CBD oil is a relatively new, but increasingly popular, form of partaking in cannabis consumption. Why is vaping a healthier way to consume cannabis? Proper vaping equipment prevents combustion, filtering out the harmful intoxicants in the smoke that would otherwise be taxing to the lungs.

It’s important to know that not all of the CBD you consume will directly affect your body: only a certain percentage will be able to enter your body’s circulation and produce its active effects, and it strongly depends on the manner in which CBD is introduced to your system. During vaporization, CBD enters your lungs and diffuses directly into your bloodstream, allowing a much larger amount of CBD to enter your circulation than had you ingested it via spray, tincture, or edible.

Furthermore, vaping CBD oil will decrease the amount of time it takes for the CBD in your body to become active, since you don’t have to wait for it to travel through your gut – you could potentially feel its effects 30 to 60 minutes faster.

How To Vape and Dose CBD Oil

CBD oil can be heated and inhaled through a vaporizer or vape pen. It’s typically available in entire bottles to fill a vaporizer or in a cartridge for one time use in a vape pen. Some varieties that are high in CBD include the CBD Enriched CO2 Cartridge and Pure CBD CO2 Cartridge, both from Emerald Farm.

Understanding dosage is everything when it comes to cannabis. It is highly recommended to consult your doctor before assuming the best dosage per day. If you’re a beginner to medicinal cannabis, start small. There’s no need to take one big dose right off the bat; instead, take several small doses throughout the course of the day. Take the same dose of the same ratio for a few days in a row and monitor the effects it has on you. Then you can adjust the dose or ratio accordingly.

When it comes to vaping CBD oil, most people install a cartridge onto their vape pen and use it periodically throughout the day.  By knowing the concentration of the CBD in the vape oil, you can calculate how much CBD is in the cartridge when you fill it.

One thing to be aware of: Make sure you buy CBD oil that does not include the chemical ingredient propylene glycol. Raised concerns of the effects and hidden dangers of inhaling propylene glycol, which is sometimes used to mix with CBD vape oil, include its conversion into toxic nanoparticles at high temperatures, which are known for causing damage to respiratory organs and may cause cancer, asthma, and other illnesses.
