Smashing the stigmas about vaping CBD
Return to Vaping Blog

CBD is causing quite the buzz in our media as of late. We see advertisements for oils, creams, infused foods and beverages, medical clinics…the list goes on. It’s all over the news, the internet, and is likely available at your favorite vape shop. But what exactly is CBD, anyway?  Cannabidiol — or CBD for short — is one of the many compounds that can be extracted from hemp plants. There is a substantial amount of controversy surrounding hemp and its counterparts, but instead of surrendering to the stigma, we’re going to help clear up the most common misconceptions people have about vaping CBD. 


“CBD gets you high”


THC is the cannabis-derived compound with hallucinogenic properties, not CBD. While CBD and THC are both found in cannabis, they do not affect the body in the same manner. Vaping CBD will not get you high and has no mind-altering effects whatsoever.


“Vaping CBD doesn’t work as well”


Many people think that the benefits of using CBD aren’t as effective when inhaled via vapor. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When inhaled, CBD is absorbed into your bloodstream through your lungs. This means it gets directly into your system without being broken down during digestion, resulting in higher potency.


“I don’t have any serious conditions, so why should I bother vaping CBD?”


While CBD can be used for more severe medical conditions such as seizures, epilepsy, and even Parkinson’s disease, it is also great for remedying conditions that millions of Americans face on a daily basis. Ever had a migraine? What about insomnia? Do you suffer from anxiety or depression? CBD has proven benefits for alleviating symptoms of these conditions as well.


“How is CBD used in vaping?”


You can find CBD in a variety of the flavors that we all know and love. Just like nicotine in regular e-liquids, they are available in various strengths. There are also unflavored and even concentrated CBD oil additives on the market, which means you can add CBD to your existing e-liquids and control the amount you use.
