CBD vape oil, otherwise known as CBD vape juice is manufactured from a variety of cannabis called hemp. Hemp typically contains high concentrations of CBD and only trace amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, typically less than 0.03%. Cannabidiol or CBD is recognised for its many medicinal benefits, whereas THC has a psychoactive effect on users.
Vaping is rapidly gaining favour as a means to ingest CBD. When a person vapes CBD, it enters the lungs and diffuses directly into the bloodstream. Some estimates put the bioavailability of vaped CBD in the region of about 50 to 60%, meaning that for every 10mg of CBD you ingest by vaping, around 5-6mg reaches your bloodstream. Researchers estimate that the bioavailability of oral CBD is about 15%.
An advantage of vaping CBD is that the onset of effects is more rapid. For instance, this rapid relief can be of particular benefit to those using CBD to treat seizures or anxiety. In conclusion, be careful not to use regular CBD oil or CBD tinctures in a vape pen, as the viscosity is too thick for use in most vaping devices.
