What to Look for in a CBD Vape Pen
Over the past few years, the hemp and cannabis industries have embraced vaping. Nowhere is this more apparent than the hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) market. CBD users now have a huge selection of e-liquids and vape oils, and devices in which to take them.
CBD doesn’t get you ‘stoned’, as it’s non-psychoactive. In a nutshell, this is because it doesn’t make the required reaction with the necessary receptor. This has really helped to increase the profile of CBD vape products, as the risk of side effects is negated.
CBD is safe, even in large doses, and can have lots of mental and physical benefits. It’s also used as a dietary supplement, as it’s great for the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Efficiency is one of the key things that people look for when taking CBD – and that’s exactly what you get from vaping with a vape pen. This article will cover all the basics on vaping CBD.
About vaping CBD
The bioavailability of CBD is higher when vaping than with other methods. As well as offering a more economical CBD experience, vaping is also more immediate than tinctures and edibles. The process of CBD absorption via the lungs takes just seconds, and brings the effects to the user in just a couple of minutes.
CBD-isolate vape juices are the perfection introduction to CBD. People who have heard stories about potential benefits may still have scepticism about hemp.
That’s why they’d prefer to stick to a product that separates the therapeutic CBD out from everything else. This gives them a chance to see whether CBD can help them. These products have no THC in them at all.
Whole-plant CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, full-spectrum CBD – it’s all the same. E-juices that are made with these extracts are infused with all the plant compounds from hemp. This includes non-psychoactive, but helpful cannabinoid such as cannabigerol (CBG) and terpenes. The latter are great because they add lots of natural flavor to a product, and have health benefits of their own.
Most CBD e-liquid products have a combination of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). Some are also made with medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil.
PG: This odorless, viscous liquid is used as an ingredient in many food products. It has a barely sweet taste and produces lots of vapor when heated.
VG: Thicker and sweeter than PG, VG is used often in the food industry. Its syrupy consistency of means you’ll rarely find an e-juice made with 100% VG.
MCT oil: Research has found that CBD is more bioavailable when consumed with fatty foods. As it facilitates quicker metabolization of CBD, it speeds up the effects. MCT oil is often taken from coconut oil.

How to use CBD oil in a vape pen
If you are using CBD cartridges with your vape pen, then there’s very little you have to do. Just attach the cartridge to the device, and start inhaling either directly or by pressing the activation button if there is one. Once the cartridge is finished, just dispose it and replace with a new one.
CBD vape pens with a tank require you to add the e-liquid yourself. This gives you total control over what you are vaping, and you can vape a single e-juice or mix and match with your preferred options. To enhance the potency of an e-liquid, you can also dissolve some pure isolate crystals.
