Curious about CBD and vaping, but don’t want to walk into a pot shop? Relax, we got you covered.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is a chemical compound extracted, usually by distillation, from the cannabis plant. It contains no THC, so it can’t get you high and you won’t fail any drug test.
Although CBD can be mixed with THC, and take many forms, we’re here to specifically address the non-THC, CBD oil filled cartridges for vaping, like we have here.
IS CBD LEGAL?
CBD is completely legal everywhere in the US.
SO WHY VAPE CBD?
Although inhaling vapor in your lungs can feel weird, it is considered significantly safer that smoking, especially when using quality ingredients. And while edibles can take 30 or more minutes to feel the effects, vaping CBD usually takes just 5-10 minutes, so you can feel the effects much quicker.
WHERE CAN I VAPE?
You can vape CBD, with no THC, in the same places you can “smoke” e-cigarettes. In California, you can’t vape in workplaces and many public spaces. You can vape in your car, but not with minors present.
Many people claim CBD has overall calming and healing effects while helping relieve pain, anxiety, and helping people sleep better.
Some compare it to how you feel after a warm bath.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
For some people, CBD may trigger a number of side effects including, ironically, some of the things it also claims to alleviate.
These cartridges, or carts, are made up of a mouthpiece, a CBD oil chamber, and a heating coil contraption on the inside called an atomizer.
The vape pen, is primarily a battery with an on/off button. When pressed, power enters the atomizer to heat the oil for vaporization. The battery is lithium ion and rechargeable. The Pen is reusable for other cartridges.
Although people respond differently to CBD, it is recommended to start small and increase dosages slowly. One or two full inhalations is a good start.
The pen comes partially charged, and is easy to use. Plug it in to fully charge.
Press the button 5 times quickly to turn on.
Then press and hold while inhaling at a normal, consistent rate, for about 2 to 3 seconds.
Pressing 5 times again turns it off.
Now relax, and enjoy your CBD vape.
