Different ways to vape CBD e-liquids
There are a number of ways that cannabidiol can be consumed. Some users prefer sublingual ingestion — putting a highly concentrated solution under the tongue for fast absorption. Others use it in drinks and food, for a much slower absorption rate. Vaping CBD e-liquids (sometimes erroneously referred to as “CBD oil” for marketing purposes) falls somewhere in the middle.
Inhaling offers a faster absorption rate than eating or drinking. Some prefer vaping CBD e-liquid over sublingual ingestion since it allows for steady dosage throughout the day. Of course for ex-smokers and current vapers, the hand-to-mouth habit is satisfied through vaping cannabidiol e-liquid instead of eating it, drinking it, or putting some under your tongue. Between the vaping and hand-to-mouth habits, this is why many people prefer vaping CBD e-liquids over other forms of consumption.
There are currently three common methods of vaping cannabidiol. Similar to vaping regular e-liquids, there are disposable products, mixed e-liquids, and concentrated solutions. CBD e-liquids and concentrated solutions come in different strength levels, just like regular vaping e-liquids come in different nicotine levels. The effects are stronger as the milligrams of cannabidiol rise. However, the effects vary from person to person, as well as from ailment to ailment. Unlike nicotine levels, where it’s common to start high and work your way down, it’s suggested that users of CBD e-liquids work their way up.
It has definitely not been proven to be by body weight. What has been concluded is that certain ailments require different levels of CBD. In my research I’ve started to put together a list of what has shown to be working for more extreme medical conditions. In general, I would say its best to start low and work you way up to what works best for your endocannabinoid system. Everyone is different. There is absolutely no need to jump right to the highest level of CBD you can find.
Cannabidiol extracts can have a unique flavor. Some describe it as earthy, while others say it’s grassy. In my experience with CBD e-liquids, I definitely found it to be more of the former. In some ways, the taste reminded me of the smell of used coffee grounds. The distinct flavor of some CBD extracts can be used as a nice complementary flavor or it can be masked by other flavors. Naturally, taste is subjective (Jim McDonald TM). Now let’s move onto some of the products themselves.
CBDfx: disposables and concentrated solutions
One of the leaders in the CBD e-liquids space, CBDfx offers disposable products and concentrated solutions. The disposables are just like cig-alike products. They’re simple sticks or pens that are easy to use. You simply vape them and throw them away when you’re done. CBDfx’s disposable vape pen is listed at 30 milligrams of cannabidiol.
CBDfx also offers “Vape Additive” products. They’re a mix of CBD concentrate, PG, and VG. They come in glass dropper bottles that will be familiar to vapers. The additive is meant to be mixed with the e-liquids you already have. The company recommends adding one half or full dropper of additive per tank of e-liquid. CBDfx Vape Additive is available in 60, 120, and 300 milligrams of cannabidiol.
Our CBD vape liquid has a natural sweet earthy flavor that some people describe as an Earl Grey tea- or green tea-like flavor. It is smooth and carries the natural flavor profile of the organically grown hemp plant.
As far as flavor goes, I found CBDfx Vape Additive works well with savory dessert and tobacco e-liquids. The earthiness can be a pleasant complementary addition to these types of flavors. When mixing it with candy and fruit e-liquids, I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much. The earthiness clashed with those flavors (for my tastebuds, anyway).
Koi CBD: premium premixed e-liquids
Some people might not want to mix CBD solutions themselves. Whether they find it inconvenient or don’t want to worry about flavor clashing, a premixed product works better for them. This is where products like the ones offered by Koi CBD come in handy.
Koi CBD currently has two flavors on tap. Gold Koi is a vanilla custard, while Red Koi is a strawberry milkshake. The company’s 50 and 100 milligram CBD products are available with 0, 3, and 6 milligrams of nicotine. At this time, the 250 milligram CBD flavors are only available without nicotine.
Koi CBD is a natural 99-percent pure CBD isolate with lab results showing no pesticides, no fungal & bacterial contamination, and no residual solvents and 100% legal to buy and sell in all 50 states.
In addition to having nicotine options, Koi CBD e-liquids are a convenient vaping option. You don’t have to worry about mixing the right amounts or carrying multiple bottle with you. You simply drip or refill your tank.
