BENEFITS OF VAPING CBD

One of the most well-known ways to consume CBD is vaping. This method was originally used among cigarette smokers looking for a healthier way to consume tobacco, but it’s since become incredibly popular among CBD users.

Vaping (short for vaporization) introduces CBD into your body via inhalation, similar to smoking.

However, vaping involves much lower and safer temperatures, resulting in vapor instead of smoke.

1. Vaping CBD Can Help You Quit Cigarettes

For those struggling with a nicotine addiction, there are a few reasons to try vaping CBD. The first is that, unlike tobacco, CBD is non-addictive. It’s odorless, so you won’t have to worry about lingering smells on your clothes or in your car. And the action of vaping resembles smoking enough to satisfy the urge to smoke a cigarette, so you won’t have to stop taking smoke breaks.

But CBD’s power to help curb addiction goes beyond breaking a psychological habit. A study conducted in 2013 compared the effectiveness of CBD vaping against a placebo inhaler for reducing cigarette use. The researchers found that while the placebo group didn’t change, the CBD group smoked 40% less cigarettes over the course of the study.

2. Vaping CBD is Quick and Efficient

One of the unique benefits of vaping is how quickly it enters the bloodstream (also known as its bioavailability). The speedy delivery of vaping is particularly appealing for those who use CBD for pain reliefanxiety, or relaxation. Fast-acting relief is important for relieving nausea, curbing migraines, and anxiety attacks resulting from panic disorder or PTSD.

While the health benefits of CBD don’t depend upon the way it’s ingested, preliminary research into cannabinoids suggests that vaping allows your body to absorb more CBD than some other methods. With edibles and capsules, CBD must pass through the digestive system and liver, which can take a little longer and reduces how much is absorbed.

Vaping, on the other hand, is nearly instant, since it skips these physiological processes.

3. Vaping CBD is Convenient

Potentially the most obvious benefit, the discrete size of a vaping pen makes it incredibly portable and convenient.

If you’re seeking an alternative to edibles or capsules, vaping may be the perfect solution for you.

Whether it’s for use on your daily commute or during a road trip, a vape pen can easily fit into your pocket or purse.

CBD E-liquid or juice contains CBD along with vegetable glycerin and/or propylene glycol, which makes the vaping process more effective.
