There are many cannabis products on the market today and many ways to ingest them. It can be hard to know what the best way is.
One of the most popular cannabis products on the market today is CBD. But, let’s face it, quality CBD isn’t the cheapest product you can buy. So you’ll want to make sure you get the most out of your CBD product.
To get the most out of your CBD, consider vaping it.
What Is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis. There are more than 100 different compounds in cannabis, and science has only scratched the surface when figuring out what they all are.
Of these hundred compounds, there are two that are most prominent: CBD and THC.
CBD is claimed to offer benefits to users, thanks to its many properties. Some studies suggest CBD:
- Helps alleviate feelings of anxiety and promote calmness.
- Is an anti-inflammatory, helping to soothe irritated skin and sore muscles.
- Is an antioxidant and helps regulate free radicals in the body.
But CBD may be best known for what it doesn’t do. It does not get people high. That’s THC’s job. Many people enjoy using CBD because they get all the benefits it (and cannabis in general) has to offer, but without the high that cannabis provides and that some people may find it off-putting about taking cannabis.
CBD can be used in many ways. You’ll likely find CBD edibles on the market, as well as CBD oils, tinctures, and even CBD capsules. However, the most effective way to get the most out of your CBD is to vape CBD oil.
A Look at Vaping
Vaping is one of the biggest trends in the cannabis world right now, with many people preferring to vape to smoking weed. For those not familiar with what vaping is and why people do it, let’s take a look at vaping.
Vapes, also called e-cigarettes, are simply a device used for inhaling cannabis products. Instead of lighting up and smoking the product, vapes heat the product at a lower temperature and create vapour, which the user inhales.
The vapour these pens create is often much less harsh than traditional smoke created by smoking a joint. It’s gentler on the lungs and throat, creating a much more pleasant experience for people.
Other benefits of vape pens include:
- They produce very little odour, and if they do, it is much more pleasant. Cannabis has a very distinct smell. Most people will recognize the smell of cannabis smoke anywhere, and it can be challenging to cover up. Vapes put off a much more pleasant smell that is not near as potent, providing users with some discretion and preventing the smoke smell from bothering people around them.
- They are portable and easy to carry discreetly. In fact, people may not even know what it is if they do see you carrying a vape pen.
Users can buy vape pens that are pre-filled and disposable. They’ll come already loaded up with your favourite CBD oil, and you can throw them away after using them. Or, you can buy a reusable vape and add your own oil or pre-filled cartridge when you are ready to use it.
Why Vaping CBD Is Most Effective
There are many ways users can take and ingest CBD (and cannabis in general). But, not all methods are created equal. Some will take longer for the CBD to go into effect, while others may cause the CBD to lose some of its potency as you use it.
Vaping is one of the most effective ways to use CBD. It not only offers quick-acting effects but ensures minimal CBD is “lost” in the process.
When you ingest a CBD edible, your body needs to process it, and you’ll have to wait for it to reach your gut before its effects kick in. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour for more people. Plus, if CBD is baked into an edible at too high of a temperature, some of it will burn off, leaving you with less-potent effects.
Vaping, on the other hand, is processed and absorbed by the body much faster. Instead of passing through your gut and liver, vaped CBD immediately enters your bloodstream. This means you’ll feel the benefits CBD has to offer almost immediately.
Vaping also optimizes the bioavailability of CBD. Bioavailability refers to the amount of CBD that makes it to your bloodstream. Other methods will cause you to lose some of this bioavailability as CBD is burned off or absorbed into your fat cells as your body processes it, limiting the amount of CBD your body can use.
Vaping CBD has high bioavailability, meaning your body will absorb and use the maximum amount of CBD possible. This gives you the maximum effect and the most bang for your buck as you use your CBD oil.
Final Thoughts on Vaping and CBD
Vaping CBD helps you get the maximum effect CBD has to offer. When you vape CBD, the CBD is absorbed directly into your bloodstream without having to pass through your liver and stomach, allowing you to experience effects quickly.
By doing this, the bioavailability of your CBD also increases. Less product is lost between you inhaling the vapour and your body processing it, which means you get the most out of your vaping session.
Many people choose to vape because vape “smoke” is much less harsh than smoke produced by joints and has a much less potent aroma. Instead of the tell-tale weed smell, a fruity or even chocolatey aroma can waft around you, creating a more pleasant experience for everyone.
While vaping CBD will give you the maximum benefit it has to offer, those with lung issues may still find vaping to be difficult. No fear, you can still find plenty of other ways to enjoy CBD and the effects it has to offer.
