CBD is everywhere these days. Be it gummies or lotions, you may be at a loss for where to start. Especially when CBD is crossing over into Juul pods and has become a part of the vaping craze. But where do you get started with vaping? In this article, we discuss potential effects, precautions, and legal status of CBD-infused vape oils.
Why Use CBD Vape Oil?
Upon inhalation, CBD directly enters the bloodstream to interact with our endogenous endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The endocannabinoid system is an internal system responsible for establishing and maintaining health. It regulates complex systems, such as the central nervous system, digestion, sleep, appetite, and a variety of other crucial biological functions.
Is CBD Vape Oil Legal?
It depends. With the passing of the U.S. 2019 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD became federally legal. All 50 states allow CBD-infused products under varying circumstances, so be sure to understand the laws in your home state before purchase.
Will CBD Vape Oil Make Me High?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating chemical compound secreted by both hemp and cannabis plants. Hemp-derived CBD vape oil will not get you high, as hemp must (by law) contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight.
How To Store CBD Vape Oil
Like any other compound, CBD-infused products can lose potency over time. Vape oil, for instance, consists of concentrated CBD and can even include extracted or added cannabinoids and terpenes. All of these components will inevitably degrade over time. However, you can dramatically extend your product’s shelf life by following this simple storage tip.
Direct exposure to light, heat, air, and time could drastically affect product quality. Store CBD-infused products in a cool, dark, and dry environment, such as refrigerators and low cabinets. However, extraction methods can vary, which may affect recommended storage options for longevity.
Which CBD Vape Oil Is Best?
In case you’re new to buying CBD-infused vape oils, here are some critical criteria to keep in mind:
- Amount of CBD per bottle and serving size
- Cost of product
- Format: full-spectrum (whole plant, less than 0.3% THC), broad-spectrum (includes added terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, except for THC), and isolate (CBD-only)
