What is CBD E-Liquid?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, and it’s one of numerous different compounds found in the cannabis plant, and unlike the compound THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD it has no psychoactive effects. It will not get you high.
CBD is a cannabinoid which is a name for a chemical which interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in your body. The body is naturally capable of making its own cannabinoids too.
Each individual type of cannabinoid has a different effect, and the amount of each one present in cannabis varies with each specific strain of the plant. CBD strains are becoming commonly used in e-liquid, cosmetics and the medical sector.
What is CBD E-Liquid
CBD e-liquid is just the same as traditional e-liquid, but instead of nicotine, CBD extract is added. So you will still usually find the base fluids of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol in varying amounts, plus flavourings and then some CBD extract.
Quality CBD e-liquids should have a uniform structure and should not separate into different layers.
CBD e-liquid is also known as CBD vape juice and some people call it CBD vape oil. It will not get you high but many people find it very relaxing. It’s not advisable to start your day on CBD because it make well have the opposite effect of a cup of coffee.
CBD E-Liquid Strengths
The amount of CBD content can vary, and different liquids will state the level of CBD (in mg/ml) contained within the product, just the same as if it was a flavour with nicotine content. Users may well increase the strength of their CBD vape e-liquid over time, ie increase the milligrams, which is in contrast to many users on nicotine who are aiming to reduce their levels. To give you some idea, below are examples of milligrames per 10ml for CBD e-liquid currently available on our site, but there are others of course:
Pre-mixed flavours: 100mg, 200mg, 300mg, 500mg (ready-to-vape)
CBD Vape Shots: 250mg, 500mg, 1000mg (to be added to a flavour)
Still under construction - will be back on this soon!
