There’s no arguing that there are many health benefits of CBD oil use. There are also many different ways to use it. From edibles like gummy bears to tincture drops and even lotions and bath bombs, the options are virtually endless.

The most popular option, by far, is CBD vape pens. They’re very easy to use and relatively inexpensive, but if you’re a first-time user, it can seem a bit overwhelming.

Don’t worry! We’re here to provide you with everything you need to know about using vape pens safely and effectively. Let’s get started!

CBD Oil Vaping Basics

First, it’s important to understand what vaping is. It’s simply inhaling a vapor, which is created by a smoking device, like an e-cigarette or a vape pen.

When you hear people refer to “vaping CBD oil,” they’re referring to a type of liquid CBD that’s created specifically for vaping. This liquid is also sometimes called “CBD vape juice.”

You’ll want to make sure that the oil you’re thinking about using is made of food-grade materials and tested for quality and purity. While most CBD oil is perfectly fine to vape, some kinds are not. Make sure it doesn’t say “for oral consumption only.”

If you want the best experience, you’ll also want to look for a full spectrum CBD vape – this way you’ll know that you have all the cannabinoids that naturally occur in a cannabis plant. No matter what type you choose, always do your research and make sure you know what CBD vape oil ingredients you’re putting into your body.

Determining Dosage

When you’re choosing your vape, you’ll also want to consider the strength of the juice and your best dosage. Generally, it’s best to start with the lowest possible dose and then increase your intake by 5 mg at a time until you start to feel the desired effect.

One nice thing about a vape pen is that you can monitor your use so you get the right CBD dosage. While this may not be as exact as measuring out drops you put under your tongue, you’ll be able to take just a small puff and then wait to see what happens before you take any more.

The right dose for you will depend, in part, on the strength of the oil you’re using, your weight, and the symptoms you’re trying to treat. For most people, it will take some trial and error before you find the exact right amount. Just take it slow and you’ll be fine.

Different Types of CBD Vape Pens

Now, it’s time to get into the nitty-gritty. What kind of vape pen do you need? This is really a matter of personal preference. Here are a few of the most popular options.

Disposable Pens

If you’re just getting started, this is your best bet. Disposable pens are super easy to use and they’re pretty inexpensive. Since they’re designed to use once and throw away, this is a great way to try out CBD vaping and see if you like it.

Most disposable CBD pens are small and lightweight. They’re pre-filled with the CBD e-juice and have a built-in battery that you don’t need to recharge.

Most of these pens will last you about 100 puffs before it runs out. Make sure you read the label before you buy so you know exactly what you’re getting.

Oil Cartridges

You may also choose to purchase a 510-thread battery and then buy CBD oil cartridges, which screw onto the top. These batteries are rechargeable so this is a bit of a more environmentally-friendly option.

Usually, the pre-filled cartridges hold about 0.5 to 1 mL of oil. When the cartridge runs out, you’ll throw it away and replace it with a new one. After disposables, this is the second-easiest way to vape CBD.

CBD Pods

If you’re already a fan of the JUUL or you’re ready to jump on the bandwagon, then you’ll want to try CBD pods. These are compatible with the JUUL battery, which makes them very convenient for those who are using them for nicotine already.

Refillable Pens

If you’re willing to make a little bit of a commitment, then refillable/rechargeable vape pens might be your best bet. These are a bit more expensive upfront, but will likely save you money in the long run. You’ll also have more flexibility to choose how you set up your device and the different types of oil you want to use.

Refillable pens also often create a larger vape cloud and allow you to experiment with a wider variety of oil flavors. However, you’ll need to spend a bit of time learning about the various parts of vape pens so that you’re able to keep your pen clean and do some basic maintenance. This includes keeping your tank clean and changing out coils when necessary.

You’ll also want to note that not all e-liquid vape pens are suitable for CBD. This is because most CBD oils are quite thick. You’ll want to check before you spend the money and make sure that the pen you’re considering will work with the oils you want to use.
