The Basics of CBD

A lot of vape shops these days have also been selling called CBD oil.  I wasn’t very familiar with what CBD oil was, so I decided to reach out to someone to write a post that will help explain it to vapers like me that don’t really pay much attention to things outside of basic nicotine vaping.

Cannabidiol or more commonly known as CBD is a major cannabinoid found in the cannabis or hemp plant. CBD is extracted from cannabis and used in dietary and nutritional supplements found in many products from isolates to oils.

Why Should You Use CBD?

CBD has been proven by many researchers to be totally harmless even in high doses for both children and adults. More importantly, CBD is popular because it’s a non-active cannabinoid unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and thus does not provide any psychoactive effects on people consuming it. CBD is actually an inhibitor of THC and lessens the “high” associated with the active compound.

Where Does it Come From?

CBD can be extracted using a variety of methods from either hemp or marijuana. There much debate currently about CBD extractions from the psychoactive marijuana being better quality and more effective rather than the non-psychoactive CBD extracted from the hemp plant. The negligible amounts of THC do not exceed 0.2% to be classified as hemp. The majority of these hemp CBD extractions are being cultivated and processed in Eastern European countries like Croatia and Slovenia.

How to Use CBD?

CBD may be consumed in a couple of different ways. The two most popular methods are vaporizing and eating it.

Vaporizing CBD

Vaping CBD is one of the most effective and efficient ways to enjoy the benefits of it.

Because vaporizers heat the CBD product at much lower temperatures than smoking it in a joint, you will be inhaling a much smoother cool vapour steam rather than a harsh smoke.

There are a ton of different CBD oils available on the market.

Vaporizing CBD is a convenient and healthier way of correctly dosing your body with cannabinoids. A quick vape session can give you as much as 2 hours of claimed calming effects of CBD. CBD is not only a good stress reliever, it reportedly is good for relieving pain, inflammation, reduces anxiety, has antipsychotic effects, relieves nausea and promotes good health.

Many top executives and sportsmen are realizing the benefits of CBD and incorporating it into their busy lives. Vaporizing CBD during the day helps you give you cannabinoids on demand and allows you to quickly experience the calming effects of the cannabinoids during the day. Vaporizing CBD allows you to also correctly record CBD dosages and increase or decrease those the dosage depending on your needs and requirements.

One of the best benefits of CBD, its available to everyone, no cannabis recommendation required. You may easily purchase a vaporizer online from the many e-commerce stores and get it delivered to your front door. Just be sure to read cannabis vaporizer reviews before you decide which vaporizer you want to purchase. Not all vaporizers are designed for CBD, so it’s important to find a suitable device that will work effectively.

There are also many vape kits that come with vape pens and CBD oil combined, that make it much easier to work out the dosages.

If you are looking for a new vital tool for easy stress management, vaping CBD oil might be just for you. CBD is safe, non psychoactive and does not have any chronic side effects, even when taken in large doses (50mg plus).

Eating CBD

One of the preferred methods by many is to ingest CBD orally. There are plenty of products on the market such as the image above that allow easy ingestion of CBD edibles.

Many products taste great while others do not. That being said it’s likely the easiest method considering the fact that you don’t need to purchase anything except the edible to enjoy the benefits.

Whether you decide to vaporize it or eat it, CBD has a ton of health benefits that you can take advantage of. It’s something that everyone should try.

So if you not interested or need the high of THC, try the very beneficial alternative, is cannabidiol.
