Safe CBD Vaping: Learn Before You Buy
Sadly, not every vape product on the market was made with your well-being in mind. This isn’t something that only affects the vaping industry, this is also true of the food, cosmetic, and supplement industries. To avoid buying poor quality, unsafe products — discernment and research are key.
On a more positive note, not every business or manufacturer cut corners. A good selection of brands will source safe, organic ingredients and use ethical practices when producing consumer products.
In this article, the specific focus is on the safety of CBD vape pens. We’ll discuss the effects of vaping, the reasons people like to vape, and helpful facts to know before you buy. After reading this article, you’ll have a solid understanding of vaping safety and what to pay attention to when you start shopping for one.
What is vaping with CBD?
Although vaping can easily be associated with tobacco, you can now find many vape pens that have cannabidiol (CBD) and zero tobacco. For hemp-derived vape pens, the CBD gets extracted from the plants and infused into oil. That CBD oil and potentially terpenes, and other additives, get added into the vape pen.
These pens also include a coil and heating element. When the power source gets turned on via a home button, or through draw-activation, the coil gets heated and turns the oil into a vapor. This is what’s inhaled and then exhaled, and often referred to as a vape cloud.
Effects of Vaping CBD
To know what types of effects you can expect from vaping, you’ll need to know what’s in the vape oil. For instance, it will contain CBD, which has specific therapeutic properties. This cannabinoid may promote feelings of calm, deep relaxation, internal peace, and can make a great addition to your bedtime routine.
Besides cannabidiol, some vape pens include terpenes. Some of the most well-known hemp terpenes include myrcene, caryophyllene, pinene, linalool, limonene, humulene, and several others. Each terpene has its own unique smell and flavor, plus beneficial health properties as proven by science.
So, the unique formula inside a vape pen, along with your individual biochemistry will ultimately determine the effects you’ll experience when vaping.
Why do people like to Vape CBD?
Some people might enjoy the taste or experience of vaping. While others choose to vape because they want to stop smoking. In addition, vape pens are great options for those who live active lifestyles. The small, hand-held device fits into your pocket, purse, or bag, and you can easily take it on the go.
How to avoid buying a poor-quality vape pen
To make sure you don’t end up with an unsafe, low-quality product, watch out for and avoid the following:
Cutting agents: Some common examples include propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, PEG, Vitamin E, and MCT oil. These aren’t healthy ingredients to inhale and they also dilute the potency of the CBD in the pen.
Artificial ingredients: Avoid products with artificial flavorings, additives, preservatives, fillers, etc. They’re not good to have in your food, and definitely not necessary or safe to have in your CBD vape pen.
In fact, Dr. Jahan Marcu, Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) of Americans for Safe Access, discovered through research that “cutting agents and fillers in vape oil formulas have the potential to be harmful.”
