But have you ever wondered what’s in it?

CBD: What is It?

CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, is one of several hundred naturally-occurring molecules, known as cannabinoids, present in the hemp plant. Of all cannabinoids, THC is the most famous one, and for all the wrong reasons. THC, which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the cannabinoid found in marijuana that causes psychoactive effects and is the reason why cannabis products rich in THC are criminalised.

CBD shouldn’t be confused with THC as it doesn’t produce or cause any ‘high.’ In retrospect, it’s been shown to be non-addictive, non-psychoactive, and is thought actually to lessen THC effects. Key Take Away: Pur CBD will not, and cannot, make you feel ‘high’ or ‘stoned’!

So, What Is The Deal With CBD?

While cannabidiol’s potential is yet fully understood, its properties are still being studied in relation to a variety of issues, many of us have to deal with daily. According to reports, using CBD has proven to help ease seizure-related symptoms in people who suffer from seizures. At the same time, it is believed to have positive effects on people who suffer a variety of conditions, including:

  • Stress
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Skin Conditions
  • Rheumatism
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Neuropathic Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • ADD & ADHD
  • Anxiety and Depression

What Is In Your CBD E-Liquid?

‘CBD e-liquid’, ‘CBD vape juice’, ‘vape-oil’, whatever marketers decide to call it, it is still the same thing. It is ‘CBD’ infused in a liquid, that can be vaped using CBD vape pens.

The vaping phenomenon has become incredibly popular due to its significantly high bioavailability and ease of administration.

But what exactly is in ‘CBD e-liquid’ and is it safe?

Different manufacturers may change their CBD vape e-liquid ingredients to stand out in a competitive market, but for the most part, there are some core common ingredients they all share.

It is important to note that there is NO NICOTINE in cannabidiol e-juice and take a look here for a details of some of the top CBD vape oils available in the UK.

(Please always read the label of the product you are about to consume.)

Typical Ingredients found in CBD E-Juice

Cannabidiol CBD

CBD V THC

No prizes for guessing that ‘CBD’ is a prevalent ingredient in ‘CBD e-juice’. This highly popular, non-intoxicating cannabinoid comes in varying dosages from 3mg per ml to 60 mg per ml, and in some cases even higher.

PG & VG

The most common ingredients in all CBD vape e-juices are ‘PG’ – Propylene Glycol and ‘VG’ – Vegetable Glycerine.
Different products will contain varying ratios. The most common being:

PG – VG
80% : 20%
70% : 30%
50% : 50%

PG – Propylene Glycol

PropyleneGlycol

‘PG’ or ‘Propylene Glycol’ is found in practically all e-liquids and even some food additives, frostings, candies, toothpaste, cosmetics and much more.

It is a colourless, odourless, petroleum byproduct, water-like liquid, that “carries” oil and other ingredients, as well as helping to distribute flavor.

It is well known in the vaping community for providing a greater throat hit.

VG – Vegetable Glycerine

CBD E-Liquids

VG or Vegetable Glycerine is another very common ingredient in all ‘e-liquids’

 

‘VG’ or ‘Vegetable glycerine’ is another common ingredient in all ‘e-liquids’ as well as some foods, cosmetics and pharmaceutical medicines.

Made from plant oils, typically palm, coconut and soy, ‘VG’ has a thicker viscosity (consistency) and is most well known for producing thick vapor clouds.

Some producers have CBD e-liquid products that contain 100% ‘VG’ with no ‘PG’. This is especially popular amongst “cloud chasers”.

PG’ and ‘VG’ are considered as safe as foods but further research is required of ‘PG’ and ‘VG’ in aerosol form.

The FDA deemed ‘PG’ “generally recognised as safe”  as a food, but as an aerosol, given its quite novel to the market and there is currently no clinical research on any long term effects.

Can I Vape Any CBD Oil?

No. But some ‘CBD’ tinctures have been developed to be used sublingually AND as a vaping oil. Check the label before you vape.

Some ‘CBD’ oils use ‘hemp oil’ as a carrier. Hemp oil is made from the seeds of the plant as opposed to ‘CBD oil’ which comes from the flower and the leaves. Hemp oil is often used as a dressing for salads but is not suitable for cooking or vaping as it is heat sensitive. If in doubt, opt for a reliable brand such as one of Cannavape’s selection of e-juices.

So, Is Cannabidiol for Me?

Well, it depends. CBD oil affects people differently. As such, you need to take a moment and consider what you want to get from CBD. We have had fantastic feedback from some of our customers with most reporting that they’ve experienced positive effects in several areas of their lives. Nevertheless, we always advise our customers to research CBD some more to see if it might be beneficial to them.

With So Many Ways to Consume Cannabidiol, Why Should I Even Consider Vaping CBD E-Liquid?

A lot of people don’t know this, but vaping is one of the most effective ways to take cannabidiol as it gets absorbed into the bloodstream really quickly. When you vape a high-quality CBD E-Liquid, up to 80 percent of its content in the e-liquid gets absorbed. It is worth noting that there is no nicotine in our e-liquids.

Does CBD Have Any Effects on Health?

To this day, there have been no recorded cases of CBD overuse or abuse, resulting in adverse effects. However, it’s essential that you know what your body can and cannot handle. Your natural brain/blood barrier is only capable of absorbing 200mg of cannabidiol every 24-hours. It is worth noting that CBD usage has no defined dosage recommendations – it is ultimately up to the user to decide how much they should take. As such, you should take time and set personal goals when giving CBD a try. If you are new to vaping CBD, we recommend that you start with one of the items from our list of the best CBD e-liquids.

Are CBD E-liquids Legal?

Yes, they are! The production and supply of Cannabidiol vaping liquids are perfectly legal in the United Kingdom. If they weren’t then we wouldn’t be selling them. So you can rest assured that when you buy CBD E-Liquids from CBD Village that you are not breaking the law. All of our products have less than 0.2% THC which means that they are legal to sell in the UK. If you’re looking for a CBD vape, CBD village has a massive range of some the best in the UK, with reviews.

How Does Cannabidiol Work?

With lots of conditions currently being studied, how could Cannabidiol possibly influence them all? Your body contains a network of receptors known as the Endocannabinoid System that runs all through it and which specifically interacts with cannabinoids like THC and CBD. When correctly stimulated, these receptors, present in most of our organs, help regulate our internal chemistry.

The effect regulating this network can have on our body’s ability to deal with various ailments is what’s driving the interest behind most studies. Our endocannabinoid system is made up of two types of receptors – CB1 receptors, primarily found in the central nervous system and the brain, and CB2 receptors, found in the spleen, pancreas, digestive tract, and immune system. When absorbed into the bloodstream, cannabidiol appears to stimulate other receptors that allow CB2 and CB1 receptors to function consistently. It theorized that this indirect effect allows cannabidiol to work more efficiently as it tries to restore chemical balance in our bodies.

In What Other Forms Is CBD Available In?

Cannabidiol products are available in various forms – some containing more than one cannabinoid, like Broad-Spectrum Oil, some using CBD isolate and some use full-spectrum CBD(check here for our recommendation of the best full spectrum CBD E-Liquid). It all starts with the plant – the hemp plant to be specific. The plant’s material undergoes an extraction process that turns it into an oil that contains various lipids (fats), waxes (naturally found in the plant), and synergistic cannabinoids. It’s then further refined through a distillation process until it becomes a single, crystallized Cannabidiol molecule.

With this method, we are able to produce the best CBD products with 99.9% purity and zero THC or any other unwanted chemicals or cannabinoids so its not full spectrum anyway! By the time it’s done, what’s left is a tasteless, incredibly pure Cannabidiol powder. Having such a high CBD concentration from the get-go means lesser wastage during production and an extremely high-quality, highly-refined isolate.

Since we do not use any chemicals or harsh solvents, you can rest assured that our CBD vape oils are high quality, safe and the purest in the market. Want to know more about the best CBD e-liquids?
