As one of the hippest products currently available on the market, CBD has taken the world by storm, becoming one of the biggest trends of the past few years. To those who are unfamiliar with the substance, this seems peculiar. How could a product that is such a trend simultaneously have medicinal properties? And do those medicinal properties really work?
To make a long story short, yes. In the US, CBD has only been recently embraced, but the research stretches back many years before the trend began. What is CBD, though, and how does it work?
In this article we’ll be taking a look at what CBD is, what it does, and how to use it in your vape.
Before we go into the article, it’s important to mention that—regardless of if you have a condition or not—it is always important to consult a medical professional before introducing a medication or routine into your life.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol is the full name for what is commonly known as CBD, a substance that is sourced from both hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike its counterpart THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects, meaning that those who use it don’t get “high”.
What does it do?
Instead of having strong psychoactive effects, CBD is effective for keeping people calm and regulating anxiety. It helps your body feel calm by encouraging your body’s endocannabinoid system to be more efficient, helping regulate pain and attentiveness. It can also be good for those dealing with chronic pain resulting from illnesses such as arthritis, as it can help decrease inflammation and your overall pain levels.
How do you vape it?
Those interested in vaping CBD can go to any smoke shop and pick up vape liquids that contain CBD in them. This is because CBD is legal in many US states provided it contains a legal amount of THC. To view the specific laws on CBD for your state, here is a handy guide with more information.
Once you get vape liquids or CBD oil, you’re able to use it like any other type of e-liquid you have. Vape liquids containing CBD and CBD oils are designed specifically to be vaped, meaning that they’ll last as long as any other type of vape juice.
