Are you as big of a fan of vaping as we are? As much as we love it, we don’t always want to feel elevated by the exhilarating effects of Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC. Sometimes, we want to feel the general wellness benefits of CBD and enjoy the flavors and aromas of our vape juices. If you feel this way too, then you’re not alone — CBD vape juice is totally a thing!
CBD vape juice is an easy and quick way to consume CBD and receive its benefits, which is why it’s one of the most popular CBD products on the market. If you’re new to vaping, that’s okay! We got you covered! Keep reading to learn more about vaping CBD and find out which one of Hollyweed’s premium-quality CBD vapes is right for you!
What is CBD Vape Juice?
CBD vape juice is a liquid that typically comes in a prefilled cartridge that you can attach to a standard vaping device. These vape carts use cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, as their main ingredient instead of nicotine. While some vape carts do contain nicotine and are considered tobacco products, here at Hollyweed, we never use nicotine in our carts.
Some of the most common fluids used to make CBD vape carts include:
- Vegetable glycerin (VG)
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)
- Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil
- Natural terpenes
What is CBD?
CBD is a natural compound found in abundance in the hemp plant and is valued for its ability to boost a person’s general wellness. By consuming CBD, it can support your endocannabinoid system (ECS), a vast network of internal receptors found throughout your body that’s responsible for regulating many biological functions, some of which include mood, appetite, digestive health, mobility, and sleep.
CBD vape juice is derived from hemp plants grown in compliance with the 2018 Farm Bill. Under these federal regulations, all CBD products must be derived from hemp and contain 0.3% or less Delta 9 THC.
CBD Vape Oil And Vaping
Vaping is short for vaporizing. When you vape an e-liquid, the vape juice you use is heated into a vapor that can be inhaled. Resembling fog or smoke, the vapor usually carries the aroma of whatever flavored vape juice it was produced from.
What Types of Vape Pens Are There?
A vape pen, also known as a vape or battery, is what you attach your CBD vape cart to vape. Without a proper battery, you won’t be able to enjoy your CBD vape juice!
Several types of vape pens exist for you to enjoy your CBD vape juice:
- Push-Button Vapes: This is the most common type of vape pen. These vapes use a push-button to turn it on and off and to take a drag. Some push-button pens might also provide tailored heat settings.
- Rechargeable Vapes: Exactly what the name implies, these vapes are rechargeable batteries that can easily attach to a standard vape cartridge.
- Disposable Vapes: Fully charged, all-in-one device that comes with a prefilled, non-removable vape cart. Once consumed, simply throw away.
- Draw-Activated Vapes: These vapes come without any buttons. All you have to do to activate the vape is inhale through the mouthpiece.
- Box Mods: Bigger, bolder, and more advanced than the average vape pen, these vapes are high-tech batteries that allow you to vape a variety of substances. Box mods may include several advanced features like display screens and voice activation.
Is Vaping the Same as Smoking?
Vaping is not the same as smoking since vaping produces vapors and smoking produces smoke. When you smoke, you burn and combust whatever compound you’re lighting up before inhaling it. When you vape, your vape pen heats the vape juice to the point where the liquid starts to vaporize. What you end up inhaling are vapors, which usually only contain organic compounds and flavorings — that is, if you’re consuming quality-controlled products. We’ll talk more about this later!
How is CBD Vape Juice Made?
CBD vape juice can be made in a few different ways. The common component of CBD vape juice is CBD, which is extracted from hemp plants using safe and clean processes, such as the CO2 extraction method used at Hollyweed.
The main difference between the different types of CBD vape juices available are the carrier fluids used in making them. Many companies others use synthetic supplements like PG or MCT oil to make their vape oil.
At Hollyweed, we make our vape juice out of CBD extract from organic hemp plants and natural terpenes, which are the natural compounds responsible for how all plants smell. We keep our ingredients list short and sweet, so you know exactly what you’re getting when you consume our vape carts. If you prefer a more uplifting experience instead, check out our Delta 8 THC vape carts and Delta 8 Disposable Vape Pens.
Knowing What’s in Your Carts
Before purchasing CBD vape juices (or any CBD products, honestly), we highly suggest that you look into how the products are made and what they contain. Substances like MCT oil, PG, VG, PEG, and even coconut oil are not great for your body when heated and inhaled, and you should avoid inhaling products that contain them if you can.
Some common side effects associated with these substances may include:
- Lung irritation and injury
- Blood vessel damage
- Affecting your natural blood flow
- Cell toxicity
Benefits Of CBD Vape Juice And CBD Vaping Effects
Aside from being an enjoyable way to unwind, did you know that CBD can be beneficial for your body, too? CBD is known for being able to:
- Promote a better night’s sleep so that you can feel more rejuvenated on a day-to-day basis.
- Boost appetite and help regulate the digestive system.
- Elevate your mood and assist in calming your nervous system.
- Alleviate ailments by helping to relieve general discomfort.
And this doesn’t even account for all the added benefits from any added terpenes! Because onset times for vaping are so quick (from almost immediately to up to 90 seconds after inhaling), you’ll be able to experience these benefits at a moment’s notice. This makes dosing a lot easier, too, because you’ll be able to tell almost right away if you want to consume any more, instead of having to wait almost an hour to feel any effects like with CBD edibles.
How Long Will Effects of Vaping Last For?
When you vape CBD, the effects will generally last from 3-4 hours. You don’t have to worry about planning your day around CBD since CBD products aren’t as euphoric as Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC products.
What About the Side Effects?
Though CBD is generally well-tolerated by most people, it is possible to still experience some side effects. Don’t worry, though — side effects are usually minor and short-lived in nature.
These side effects can sometimes include:
- Slight drowsiness or fatigue
- Mild upset stomach
- Dry mouth
- Mild diarrhea
- Eye redness or dryness
If you’ve never tried CBD before and are unsure of your tolerance levels, we recommend starting with a smaller amount first. Remember, you can always consume more once you get a feel for how your body tolerates it.
While there are no official guidelines for dosing, we suggest consuming about 0.25 mg of CBD per pound of body weight for a regular dose. For a smaller dose, you can consume less, and for a stronger dose, you can double this amount. To learn more about dosing, check out this article we wrote.
Ask For Your Doctor’s Opinion
Still unsure if CBD is right for you? Give your doctor a call! A licensed medical professional will be able to help you determine what’s right for you and your body.
Is CBD Vape Juice the Same As CBD Oil?
CBD vape juice and CBD oil are not the same things. Though they may sound similar, they’re created differently and should only be consumed as intended. CBD vape liquid is formulated to be heated up and inhaled with the use of a vape pen, while CBD oil tinctures are formulated for ingestion.
Whatever you do, never add CBD oil to your depleted vape cart. Oil tinctures are highly flammable and can cause significant harm if vaped or inhaled.
How Do You Use CBD Vape Juice?
Consuming CBD vape juices is a lot easier than you think! All you need to get started is your charged vape pen (you won’t have to worry about this if you prefer disposable CBD vape pens) and a new CBD vape juice cart.
How to consume your CBD vape juice:
- First, connect your CBD cart to your vape device. Remove the rubber protector from your cartridge before starting. Then, twist the cart clockwise to attach it to the battery. Be sure not to twist on too tightly.
- Next, power on your vape pen. Every device powers on differently, but many of them power on either by pressing and holding the power button or pressing the power button five times. Some pens may not even have a button and you can just inhale directly!
- Then, press and hold the power button to power your vape’s atomizer. This will heat your vape liquid and create vapor!
- Consume a hit, and enjoy! After heating the vape liquid, you can inhale the vapor through the mouthpiece as you would if you were smoking normally.
Once you’ve finished with your vape pen, be sure to turn it off and store it either in its container or in an upright position in a safe place away from kids or pets.
At Hollyweed, all of our vape carts are replaceable. Once consumed, they must be replaced with a new cart. Under no circumstances can they be refilled with vape juice.
What Are The Most Popular CBD Vape Juice Flavors?
It’s almost impossible to determine the best CBD vape juice because there’s a flavor out there to suit everyone’s tastes. We asked our friends (and taste-tested for ourselves) and came up with some of our favorite flavors:
- OG Kush (400 mg): Like the classic many know and love, our OG Kush will send you on a citrusy-fresh journey through a lush pine forest, so you can lay back and soak in nature’s glory.
- Sunset Sherbert (400 mg): After spending the day under the hot California sun, there are few things we love more than chilling out with a bowlful of sunset sherbert. Juicy orange and pineapple swirl? Count us in!
- Gorilla Glue (400 mg): If you’re into mocha lattes, you’ll love Gorilla Glue. With notes of chocolate, freshly-brewed coffee, and a hint of lemon, you’ll roll out of bed ready to take on the day.
- Fruity Cereal (400 mg): Fruity, fresh, creamy, and delicious. Start your day on the right foot with a serving of crisp, Fruity Cereal!
- Pineapple Express (400 mg): If you’re a fan of fruity flavors but don’t want to experience overwhelming sweetness, Pineapple Express may be the right ride for you. With hints of pineapple, mango, and pine, you can chill out and feel refreshed anywhere with this vape.
What Are the Benefits of Buying CBD Vape Juice Online?
While you can buy CBD vape juice in stores, many benefits come from purchasing it online instead. When you purchase your CBD e-liquid online, you’ll be able to ensure that you’re spending your hard-earned dollars on a quality product that’ll suit your wants and needs.
Better Verify the Quality of Your Vape Juice
Even though you can purchase CBD e-juice in places like gas stations and convenience stores, it may not always be the best idea. Shopping online gives you the ability to find out exactly where your CBD products are coming from — all the way down to the very farm that the hemp plant was cultivated. To figure out more specific details about your CBD products, look for Certificates of Authenticity (COAs) before buying.
Compare Price Points More Easily
