What is CBD?
CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is a natural substance found in the flowers and leaves of hemp plants. CBD makes up almost half of the paste which can be extracted from these plants.
Very importantly, CBD is completely different to another substance which is also extracted called THC. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the substance found in cannabis which can make you feel “high” and can be addictive. The sale of products containing THC is illegal in the UK. Because CBD does NOT contain any THC, it does not have any psychoactive affects and so will not give you a “high”. It will not have any negative or bad affects on your mind or behaviour. However, CBD does have many great benefits which have seen it become widely used over the past few years.
What is CBD used for?
CBD is increasingly used by people to treat a wide range of symptoms and ailments. These include:
- Chronic pain
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Crohn’s Disease
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
However, it should be noted that medical research is still ongoing into the exact health benefits, if any, that CBD can produce.
How can CBD be taken?
CBD can be taken in lots of different ways including:
- Inhalation through vaping CBD e-liquid
- Devices which spray CBD into your mouth
- CBD oils which can be rubbed on your skin
- CBD drinks
- Daily capsules
Why is vaping CBD oil e-liquid so effective?
Vaping CBD e-liquid is very popular because it is so convenient. You can use your normal e-cigarette device and simply replace your e-liquid with our CBD oil. CBD e-liquid does not contain nicotine and so it is not addictive like normal e-liquids. E-cigarettes heat e-liquids to about 200 degrees Celsius - at this temperature the CBD e-liquid vaporises. Inhaling this vapour is one of the fastest and most efficient ways of the CBD properties entering your blood (much faster than CBD oils or capsules). On top of this our CBD oil e-liquids are available in different flavours which can make vaping CBD a very pleasurable and flavoursome experience.
Does CBD e-liquid come in different strengths?
Yes, CBD e-liquids do come in different strengths. We offer two strengths of our CBD e-liquid; 100mg and 300mg. When vaping normal e-liquid for the first time, we recommend selecting a nicotine strength based on your current smoking habits. But this is different for CBD. When vaping CBD e-liquid for the first time we recommend starting at the lowest strength (100mg) and seeing how this feels for you. You can then increase the CBD strength if you feel it needs to be stronger. Please remember that all our CBD oils are nicotine free.
Is CBD e-liquid legal and safe to use?
Using CBD was made legal in the UK in 2016. However CBD products, including e-liquids, are still strictly regulated for quality and safety by the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). Like many products which we use for the first time, CBD can have some unwanted side effects like tiredness, feeling less hungry than normal and sometimes diarrhoea. As with all vaping products, we recommend that you speak to your doctor before starting to use CBD e-liquid, especially if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breast feeding; if you have a medical condition, unstable heart condition, severe hypertension or diabetes; if you are allergic/sensitive to any of the ingredients; or if you are unsure of use/ suitability.
CBD cannot be sold to anybody under the age of 18. Our CBD e-liquid is made right here in the UK at a specialist clean-room facility. We manufacture all our e-liquids to the highest safety standards and using only the best quality ingredients.
