CBD VAPE - VAPE JUICES, CARTS & PENS
CBD is gaining mainstream popularity for its calming and relieving effects, with CBD products now offering a natural, plant-based alternative in supporting the management of anxiety, pain relief and sleep (amongst other things).
Vaping CBD is the fastest and most efficient way to get CBD into your system. It’s also one of the most convenient and affordable methods for taking CBD. So it makes sense that CBD vape products are now amongst the most popular on Handpicked.
At Handpicked CBD, we stock a wide variety of CBD vape products from the leading manufacturers and brands in the UK.
So, whether you’re a regular vaper looking to add some CBD into your routine, or you’re a complete beginner to both CBD and vaping, we’ve got you covered.
For beginners, here are some CBD vape basics:
CBD vapes are made by adding CBD extracts to an inhalable carrier such as VG (vegetable glycerin), PG (propylene glycol) or MCT oil. Oftentimes, additional flavourings are added for taste and smell.
There are 3 main ways that you can vape CBD:
CBD VAPE E-LIQUID
Also known as CBD vape juice, this is the most popular and cost effective way to vape CBD.
You’ll need to buy a refillable vape device (if you haven’t got one already) into which you’ll pour your CBD e-liquid.
Once you’ve got your device, it’s simply a case of choosing the flavour and strength of the CBD vape juice that you want to try.
There are literally thousands of juices to choose from, with every flavour imaginable. At Handpicked, we’ve carefully selected a range of CBD vape juices that we think are the best available in the UK. You can find them all in our CBD E-Liquids section.
CBD vape juice tends to come in 10ml or 30ml bottles and the price can range from as little as £6.99 to upwards of £50 depending on the amount of CBD contained in the juice.
CBD VAPE CARTS
CBD vape carts are also very popular.
These non-refillable cartridges are a lot less ‘fuss’ than working with e-liquids. You simply screw the cart onto a vape battery and off you go. Each cart should last you 1 month+ (of course, depending on how much you vape).
If you’re looking for a sleek & clean vape experience then check out our select range of CBD vape carts on Handpicked.
CBD VAPE PENS
CBD vape pens are growing in popularity, especially amongst those that are new to the vaping world.
CBD vape pens are disposable. There’s no set up, you buy the pen and can use it straight away until it’s empty. Just like you’d buy a drink from the shop.
CBD vape pens are usually discreet and stylish and won’t produce massive clouds like you’d see from regular vape juice devices.
We’ve handpicked our favourite CBD vape pens on the market in the UK. Take a look at the range here.
IS VAPING CBD BETTER THAN TAKING CBD OIL UNDER THE TONGUE
There is no single best way to take CBD. Everyone is different!
But if you don't like the oily consistency of a CBD tincture, or find it difficult to measure the right dose of oil drops, then a vape might be what you need.
Vaping CBD oil works faster than taking oil drops, gummies or capsules.
CAN I VAPE CBD FOR PAIN RELIEF?
The science on CBD is playing catch up, but there is lots of anecdotal and pre-clinical evidence to suggest that CBD can help to soothe pain.
Pain relief and inflammation are at the top of the list of reasons why people use CBD. Vaping speeds up the delivery of CBD, transporting it to your bloodstream from the first puff, without a need for the body’s metabolic processes to break it down, which is what can happen with gummies and capsules.
DOES VAPING CBD HELP ANXIETY?
There is an increasing body of research that suggests vaping CBD can have therapeutic benefits for those with anxiety and depression.
Like pain management, anxiety and mental health disorders are at the top of the list of reasons why people use CBD. In 2019, a US mental health study found that 79.2% of patients experienced less anxiety from taking just 25mg of CBD a day for 3 months.
IS IT SAFE TO VAPE CBD?
As long as you buy CBD vape products from reputable sources like Handpicked CBD, then yes vaping can be considered safe.
It’s important that you can see the ingredients list and a third party lab tested certificate of analysis before you buy. This will prove that there are no nasties, or THC, in the product. Any legit retailer should make this information available on their website!
Vaping is regulated across the EU and in the UK. The manufacturers of vape products must comply with these strict rules.
CAN ANYONE VAPE CBD?
Healthy adults over 18 can buy CBD vape products. However, it is not recommended for those with Asthma or other respiratory conditions.
CAN I GET HIGH FROM VAPING CBD?
No. If you are using a legal CBD vape oil bought from a reputable source you will not get high. That sensation from smoking illicit cannabis is caused by THC, which is prohibited in CBD products in the UK.
DO CBD VAPE OILS SMELL LIKE CANNABIS?
They can, if that’s what you’re into! That typical cannabis odour is actually from another part of the plant, terpenes.
Like the CBD ingredient in your vape juice, terpenes also come from hemp and give off a pungent aroma which some people don't like (and others love).
There is some scientific evidence to suggest that terpenes can enhance the effects of CBD. However, this is all down to personal preference. If it’s something you’re conscious of and you want to vape CBD discreetly then you’ll probably prefer vape formulations that don’t include terpenes.
IS VAPING CBD THE SAME AS SMOKING FLOWER?
No. The first difference is the process of vaporization. This alone produces fewer carcinogenic compounds than combustion (which happens in smoking). As a result, there are no carcinogens inhaled in vaping. To break it down, there is far less of a chance of a vaper inhaling carcinogens compared to a smoker. This is one of the reasons why Public Health England say vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking. With a lit cigarette, you can expect temperatures of around 315°C. When you use a CBD vape, the oil is heated to approximately 180°C.
