Let’s take a look at the question, CBD vaping what you need to know. Vaping CBD is the most effective way to take your CBD as it has the highest bioavailability compared to CBD food, drinks, or others. This is because CBD can be directly absorbed into the bloodstream via your lungs.
CBD E-liquid has been manufactured to be vaped, similar to standard vape juice, with some key differences to ensure the best vaping experience.

For the est CBD Vaping experience
The CBD is manufactured to either a 50PG/50VG (or 70PG/30VG) ratio. This means that the overall liquid is quite thin and is best vaped with a Pod Style vape device with a Sub Ohm coil at a low wattage. This is to ensure that the liquid is properly vaporised and to ensure that your coil does not burn if set at a higher temperature.
- Ensure that you are using a vape pod kit and that your device is at a low wattage under -20W
- Fill your tank with your CBD e-liquid and check that the coil is properly soaked. It is recommended to leave the liquid to sit for 5-10 minutes before vaping
- Start your CBD Vaping experience by drawing the vape into your mouth first, and then inhaling it into your lungs afterwards.
- Hold the CBD vapour in your lungs for a few seconds to allow the CBD to be fully absorbed.
How much CBD Vape can I vape?
It is always recommended to start with a few vapes at a time and see how we feel. Our CBD should be taken slowly, leaving time for the CBD to be absorbed before redosing. It is recommended to take the first dosage of CBD at home where you are free of any strenuous activities or where high concentration is required (like driving, going to work etc.)
Why is CBD used for Vaping?
There are a few different ways to get CBD into your diet, from eating drops to vaping it. Each one can be useful, and which one works for you will depend on what you want out of the CBD. At the end of the day, though, it will be down to personal preference and how it affects your body.
What does CBD vape liquid consist of?
The four ingredients a CBD e-liquid will be made up of:
- Vegetable Glycerine (VG) – is normally made from soybean, coconut or palm oil. VG is used in a huge variety of food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics products.
- Propylene Glycol (PG) – Propylene Glycol has been the base ingredient in thousands of products for years. You can find PG in medicine, food (like ice cream) and more.
- Flavouring – Normally food flavourings are used to give the e-liquid a nice taste.
- CBD – Vaping liquid can contain CBD isolate or broad spectrum CBD here in the UK, and should have been tested to make sure that there is no THC or any other compound in.
Vaping CBD v/s other methods of consuming CBD:
Vaping CBD rather than any other method does have a few advantages, with one of the biggest ones being that CBD e-liquids seem to be the most efficient way to take cannabidiol.
According to the study, due to the way that CBD is being absorbed by the lungs – there are a huge number of blood vessels in the lungs – the CBD is absorbed the most as a vapour. Consuming CBD from drops or food the absorption rate is about 12%, meaning only 12% of the CBD is actually getting into your body and helping. With vapour, you can get up to 56% of the CBD!
Another benefit of vaping CBD is that gets into the blood much quicker than the other options, taking about 20-30 minutes for the vaporised CBD to start working. Compare that to other methods which can take a few hours for you to feel the effects and you can see the difference.
Eventually, it will all come down to your individual body and exactly what you are using CBD for. If you want to use CBD to help with your sleep or mental health then a slow and accurate drop system might be for you.
Potential Side Effects and Health Risks of CBD Vaping:
Some experts say that someone who regularly vapes CBD oil isn’t likely to notice its harmful effects at first. In fact, the immediate side effect of vaping CBD tends to make you feel relaxed. But over time, the damage can have a serious effect on a person’s health. A few of the health risks of regular CBD vaping are listed below.
- Popcorn lung
- Lung or heart disease
- Compromised immune health
Vaping CBD affects the lungs and heart and is linked to both lung disease and heart disease. Vaping impairs the ability of the inner lining of the blood vessels to produce a substance called nitric oxide. This inability can cause clotting and the blood vessels to constrict which can raise blood pressure levels instead of staying relaxed.
