Vaping 101: How Much CBD Should I Add To Vape Juice?
Knowing the right amount of CBD to add to your vape juice can be challenging. This article discusses how much CBD should be added to vape juice, including what vape juice is and the benefits of vaping CBD.
Vaping has become increasingly popular in the UK and beyond. While it has been commended as a safer alternative to smoking, CBD vape juice has shown a greater impact in addressing various health issues. The idea of adding different flavors to vape juice came about for various reasons. Vape juice's variety of flavors appeals to many users. This means people are more likely to buy vape juice. However, if you are new to CBD vaping, it can be challenging to figure out the right amount of CBD for your needs. You need a considerable amount to achieve the desired effects. Finding an ideal CBD dosage may also be difficult since the effects of vaping are influenced by several factors, including metabolism, the severity of the condition to be treated, CBD potency, body weight, etc.
What Is Vape Juice?
Vape juice is also known as e-liquid or e-juice. Some people call it "juice." It is a liquid vaporized by an electric device such as a vape pen. The main ingredients in vape juice include vegetable glycerine (VG), propylene glycol (PG), food-grade flavoring, nicotine, and water. These ingredients are used considerably to give vape juice an ideal flavor.
How Much Is CBD Added to Vape Juice?
Vaping and CBD have become increasingly popular across the world. While CBD has been hailed as a treatment for various health conditions, vaping has been thought of as an excellent alternative to smoking. Some people may want to combine these two benefits by mixing/adding CBD to their e-liquids. Since vaping involves several elements, it can be difficult to determine the correct amount of CBD to produce the desired effects. This is also because the effects of vaping are influenced by various factors such as individual metabolism, body weight, CBD potency, and the severity of the condition being treated. There is no ideal dosage, and figuring out the right amount to include in your vape juice can be difficult, especially if you are a beginner. Finding an ideal amount that works for your needs is a matter of trial and error. You may need a few tries to determine the correct amount that works best for you. However, monitor how your body responds and choose the amount that makes you feel exactly how you want. Many experts recommend starting low and adjusting until you achieve the amount that produces your desired effects. Adding CBD to your vape juice is recommended. Add one drop of CBD oil into your e-liquid for optimal results.
Although there is a limit to how much CBD a person can consume, CBD may be toxic under extreme and absurd circumstances. The relative toxicity of CBD is judged by comparing the concentration of CBD in your product. Although it is difficult to determine a definite amount that may cause CBD toxicity, (Naheed, 2020) explained that CBD might become toxic if consumed at concentrations above 20,000mg. Reaching that level of toxicity is nearly impossible. Taylor et al. (2018)also showed that doses of up to 1500 mg of CBD are well-tolerated in human subjects.
The following are some of the most common factors that help CBD consumers determine the right amount of CBD to include in their vape e-liquids and achieve desired results:
The CBD potency or strength also determines how much CBD you may need for your vape juice. You may need to use more low-potency CBD than high-potency CBD to achieve the same effects.
People with heavier weights may need stronger CBD to obtain the same effects as those with lighter weights. Assuming they are all using 300 mg CBD, the one with more body weight may need more CBD oil to achieve the same effects as their counterpart.
People who want to experience stronger effects may also need more CBD than those who wish to achieve mild results.
Benefits of Vaping CBD
Many people experience daily pressure and stress, affecting work productivity and other activities. CBD vaping is among the most natural ways of relaxing, especially after a long day. CBD'S anxiolytic effects, coupled with the rhythmic act of inhaling and exhaling, provide a therapeutic way of promoting relaxation and unwinding. The act of relaxation also relieves mental stress. Mental stress is often associated with symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and insomnia. According to Kuhathasan et al. (2019), higher doses of CBD can help improve sleep quality and reduce sleep disturbances.
Helps in Pain Management
People experience pain differently, and in whatever way it may come, it always causes discomfort. Analgesic medications may not provide intense effects against certain types of pain, such as neuropathic pain or chronic inflammation. Various studies have evaluated cannabidiol and revealed its potential to alleviate pain and inflammation. Singh & Lippmann (2018) suggested that vaping CBD may provide significant and quick pain-relieving effects that may help patients with different pain types.

Cons of Vaping CBD
Vapers may face a smoking stigma for those who neither smoke nor vape, probably because of the denormalization that surrounds smoking.
People who want to try vaping for the first time may get overwhelmed with endless options, making it hard to choose what suits their preferences.
Vaping may have side effects such as drowsiness and a harsh throat, especially if the vape juice is too concentrated.
Even though pre-mixed CBD vape juice is highly popular, some users love adding CBD oil to their preferred flavor. The above information is ideal for those interested in trying CBD vaping for the first time. CBD is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, even in high doses. Experts recommend that users start with low doses and gradually adjust until they find the ideal amount that works for them. Besides, the amount of CBD that works for you may not work for another. It is a matter of trial and error until you get the right amount for your body.
