There are a few ways you can use CBD e-liquids, again, somewhat similar to how you’d use regular e-liquids. There are cbd vape pens with prefilled cartridges you can just screw into place and inhale to vape. You can also buy pre-mixed CBD e-liquids to put in the tank or pod of your existing vape setup, typically these come in higher PG levels (many are around 80:20 PG:VG) meaning they’re best used in lower powered devices. You can also make your own CBD shortfill by adding a highly concentrated CBD shot to your nicotine free e-liquid. Pop it in the bottle, mix it up and you can vape your usual favourite flavour with CBD instead of nicotine. Never attempt to vape with CBD oils that are for oral consumption. Always use vape-specific CBD liquids.
Alongside the device itself and flavour range of CBD liquids you can also choose from a wide variety of concentrations. Which you choose depends on a few things like body size, what you’re using it for and how long you’ve been using CBD. Strength-wise, you can start low, at 30mg, then up it at your will. Popular strengths are in the mid range - 100mg to 300mg. There are even higher strengths you can go to, finding the right one for you requires a little bit of experimentation.
Based on our experience, we would typically recommend starting on the slightly higher of two strengths you’re looking at. If you’re torn between a 100mg and 300mg, starting on the higher one will help you find your perfect dose a little quicker. If you go too low you may not notice any relaxing benefit whereas when it’s slightly higher you can always dilute it slightly with some regular e-liquid.
There are a few benefits from doing it this way:
- If you’re vaping CBD e-liquids, you’ll know much faster how much you need to feel an effect.
- Adding to this, starting out with a higher strength will often mean you need to use less in the long term. For example with a lower dose like 100mg you may find you need to vape 2mls to feel the effects. With a 300mg being three times as strong, you’d in turn need less than 1ml for the same effect.
- Higher dose liquids are often more cost effective in this sense - if you need 1ml a day of a 300mg strength it’ll last you 10 to 15 days. A 2ml application of the lower dose would last you half that time.
- Higher doses also mean you don’t need to commit to vaping an entire tank full to get your required dose.
