What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over a hundred cannabinoids found in plants of the Cannabis Sativa family. The World Health Organization describes it as “generally well tolerated with a good safety profile”.
- CBD e-liquids and vape juices are legal to buy and consume in the UK.
- CBD e-liquids and vape juices are non-intoxicating so won’t get you high .
- Consuming CBD isn’t habit-forming or addictive.
- CBD won’t show up on a drug test.
- CBD won’t impair your ability to drive.
How does CBD work?
CBD works by blocking enzymes that are responsible for breaking down the useful molecule anandamide. Anandamide is a human cannabinoid that naturally occurs in your body. It acts as a chemical signal to help your body systems maintain a healthy balance. When CBD is present, your anandamide levels build up and your body can quickly respond to any problems it faces.
What is CBD e-liquid?
CBD e-liquid, (also called CBD vape juice), is a liquid made up of hemp extract, flavouring and carrier oil. The carrier oil is often a combination of vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG), but some brands use other substances like fractionated MCT oil.
When heated in a vaporiser, the vape juice forms a vapour that can be inhaled to deliver the active ingredient to your bloodstream via your lungs. Flavouring is added to disguise the taste of the hemp and to make it more enjoyable.
Although most e-liquids are similar, they can have some small differences:
- The ratio of PG to VG can determine how smooth the vapour is on your throat.
- Cheaper vape juices use CBD isolate, but some contain full-spectrum extract.
- Most e-liquids range in strength from 1% to 10% CBD.
- Some e-liquids are dispensed from the bottle by a narrow tip, others use a dropper.
Can I mix CBD oil with vape juice?
You should not mix CBD oil and vape juice; vape juice is designed to be vaped and inhaled safely, whereas CBD oil is made to be swallowed or absorbed under the tongue. If you want to add more CBD to an e-liquid, you could mix it with a stronger CBD e-liquid or a specially designed CBD vape additive.
Does it contain nicotine?
The CBD e-liquids we sell are different to those used in e-cigarettes and don’t contain nicotine.
Isolate, full-spectrum or broad-spectrum e-liquid?
E-liquids made with isolate contain CBD that’s been purified to contain no other cannabinoids or plant substances. It often comes in the form of powder or crystals that are combined with carrier oils and flavourings.
Full-spectrum e-liquids contain CBD that’s been extracted from the plant alongside other cannabinoids and nutrients. The entourage effect theory suggests that keeping these substances together may enhance their effects.
Another option is broad-spectrum; these e-liquids also contain a full range of cannabinoids but with the exception of THC. The THC has been removed and the third-party lab results should show that none has been detected. Some brands also use terms like ‘zero THC’ or ‘THC-free’.
Advantages and disadvantages of vaping CBD
· Available in a range of flavours
· Produce results faster than other CBD types; vaped CBD can reach your bloodstream in 10 to 20 minutes.
· They’re more bioavailable than other CBD products; 34-56% will reach your bloodstream.
· Taking more or fewer puffs is an easy way to make minute adjustments to how much you take.
· You need to purchase a vaporiser before you can get started.
· Some people don’t like the sensation of inhaling the vapour.
· When vaped, CBD doesn’t stay in your system as long as when taken sublingually or eaten.
· Less choice of full and broad-spectrum juices with most containing cheaper isolate.
How do I use CBD e-liquid?
The process of vaping will vary depending on the equipment you’ve selected. You’ll need an e-liquid vaporiser and a bottle or cartridge of CBD vape juice.
- Start by familiarising yourself with the vape. Read the instructions, assemble it and test the controls.
- Now, carefully pour the liquid into the tank or attach the cartridge.
- Turn your device on; most turn on with 1, 3 or 5 clicks of the power button.
- Take one small puff. Some models will automatically vaporise the e-liquid as you inhale, others need you to hold a button down each time you breathe in. Hold it in for a second or two and exhale.
- Do this 2-3 times and repeat as needed throughout the day.
We recommend the Jem vape from Innokin. This is a pen-style vape but is wider than most, 16mm, making it easier to refill the tank. If you select the Jem starter kit, it comes with a 1.6-ohm kanthal coil and a 2.0-ohm ceramic coil. This will give you everything you need to vape standard VG/PG e-liquids and those made with fractionated MCT oil, like the full-spectrum CBD Ultra oils we sell.
How much CBD should I vape?
When you first start vaping CBD, begin slowly and get an idea of how much is right for you. Vaping allows your body to use more of the CBD due to its high bioavailability. So, you will require a lower concentration for vaping than you would if you were going to take it using another method.
When first using a CBD vape juice take a few steady puffs 3 times a day. After 3 days, begin to increase the number of puffs you take but stick to 3 times a day. If you achieve your desired effect, continue to use the same amount.
This table will give you an approximation of how much you’re using. We have used the term “puff” to describe inhaling for approximately one second, this is a guide only and will vary depending on the device and settings used:
CBD: Isolate vs Broad Spectrum vs Full-Spectrum
CBD oil has become as mainstream as vitamins. Pharmacies to gas stations sell it. But just seeing “CBD” on a bottle doesn’t mean much.
The first thing to know is that CBD products fit into three main categories: CBD isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum. Knowing the differences are as important as getting your CBD dosage right. Each category has different implications for the user.
CBD isolate vs full-spectrum extraction
The chart above shows where the CBD extraction process diverges for isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum. Some steps may vary, and others may be skipped depending on the lab, but it’s a basic roadmap for understanding the process that starts with the hemp plant and arrives at the three main types of CBD.
What is full-spectrum CBD?
Charlotte’s Web Hemp Extract
Charlotte’s Web offers the most premium full spectrum hemp extract you can get. This tincture comes in 30 mL and 60 mL sizes containing 300-600 mg CBD, or 60 mg per mL. It also contains the entire spectrum of phytocannabinoids and terpenes extracted from USA-grown hemp. It’s now available in three flavors.
Full spectrum refers to a CBD-rich product that contains the full profile of organic compounds (cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.) that can be found in the hemp plant. But to better explain what full-spectrum CBD is, let’s first go through the whole process once.
First, CBD along with an array of cannabinoids are extracted from the plant, using one of many types of extraction methods—most commonly supercritical CO2 extraction. The extract then can go through winterization, a process that removes a wide array of unwanted substances, essentially further purifying it.
Then, through a process called decarboxylation (removing a carboxyl group from the molecule), components of the extract that come in acid form (CBDa, THCa, etc.) are transformed into their active forms (CBD, THC, etc.).
For CBD bud smokers, this process takes place when lighting a joint or using a vaporizer. For every other type of CBD product, it takes place in a lab. The end result is full-spectrum CBD.
An important thing to note at this point is that while full-spectrum CBD does contain THC molecules, widely available CBD products are derived from hemp, which is naturally low in THC content.
In fact, the legal requirement for the hemp plant is to contain up to 0.3% THC, and most full-spectrum CBD products contain less than that. But note that while the THC content of hemp-derived CBD is not enough to get you high, it could potentially cause you to fail a drug test.
If you’re concerned about a drug test, CBD isolate or broad spectrum is what you are after.
Full spectrum and whole plant: not the same
While full-spectrum CBD and whole plant are often used interchangeably, these are two very different things. In fact, they refer to different parts of the process altogether. Simply put, whole plant refers to using all parts of the hemp plant instead of the CBD-rich flowers. In other words, whole-plant extraction may end up in full-spectrum CBD oil, but full-spectrum CBD doesn’t necessarily come from whole-plant extraction. Quite the contrary; most labs stick to using only the flowers, which usually also leads to final products with higher CBD content.
What is CBD isolate?
Hemp Bombs CBD Oil
Hemp Bombs CBD oil contains premium CBD isolate extracted from European hemp. Since they use CBD isolate instead of whole-plant extraction, it has a very pleasant taste. They come in a variety of strengths ranging from 125 mg to 4000 mg CBD and are available in unflavored, watermelon and peppermint.
CBD isolate is exactly what its name implies: the purest form of cannabidiol (CBD). The process to obtain CBD isolate follows the same route as full-spectrum CBD, with the addition of some extra steps in order to isolate CBD from the rest of the hemp plant extracts.
Once the extract is activated after decarboxylation has taken place, it then goes through a type of distillation. The specific method used may vary, but CBD distillation is not much different from the process used for alcohol.
What remains after distillation is a white powder that’s typically made out of at least 99% CBD—with the remaining 1% being traces of plant matter that could not be removed.
The final product of these processes can be bought in crystal form, or used by manufacturers to create tinctures, vape juice, and a wide variety of CBD isolate-based products.
How to use CBD isolate
CBD isolate can be used sublingually, the same way you’d consume a CBD oil tincture. Furthermore, its crystalline powder form allows it to be used as an additive to foods and drinks, and even in topical creams or vape juice. But don’t forget that CBD isolate contains 99% CBD or more; this means that one gram of isolate will contain at least 990 mg of CBD. If you intend on using CBD in isolate form, make sure you dilute it properly in order to get the CBD dose that’s right for you.
What is broad-spectrum CBD?
Avida Broad Spectrum
Avida offers a broad spectrum MCT-oil based tincture in 125 mg or 500 mg strengths. Their oil contains no THC and features CORE Spectrum technology. It contains a proprietary blend of phyto cannabinoids, terpenes and real spearmint extract. Their CBD tinctures are BPA free, gluten-free and third-party lab tested.
Simply put, broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD minus the THC. At least that’s what it’s supposed to be; many manufacturers tend to use the term for any CBD product that contains even one cannabinoid more than CBD.
True broad-spectrum CBD comes from removing THC from a full-spectrum extract, and chromatography is the most commonly used method for that purpose.
By removing THC from the extract, what remains is a CBD-rich broad-spectrum formulation that contains a wide array of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other organic compounds.
What’s the right type of CBD for you?
A proper dose of a CBD product from a reputable source should be enough to get the benefits of CBD in most cases. But when trying to find the best type of CBD for you, there are some additional factors you should take into consideration.
Drug tests on the horizon?
Hemp-derived full-spectrum CBD generally contains traces of THC, and while it depends on the exact test taken, there is a chance it will result in a positive drug test. If you are concerned, then go with CBD isolate or broad spectrum—both of these types are THC-free by definition. If you want to be sure about that, always buy your CBD from reputable sources that use extensive third-party testing.
Want the most out of your CBD?
The organic compounds (cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.) contained in broad-spectrum and especially full-spectrum CBD work together to produce what’s called the “entourage effect”.
That’s a commonly used term that was first introduced in the study of cannabinoids when scientists discovered that CBD can potentially suppress the psychoactive effects of THC. But in the process, they also discovered that regardless of THC content, CBD itself may become more effective when combined with other compounds than it does in isolation.
Isolated CBD provides its effects inside a specific range of dosage—with anything lower than that being ineffective, and anything higher than that not producing additional effects.
That’s commonly referred to as the bell-shaped dose-response—imagine a bell-shaped graph, with the effects rising steeply after a specific dosage, and subsiding at a similar rate soon after that.
The entourage effect seems to allow CBD to become effective at a lower dosage, and to keep raising its effectiveness at higher dosages—especially when using CBD for pain management.
Flavor and odor
CBD isolate is supposed to be flavorless, colorless, and odorless. Broad and full-spectrum CBD will generally come with a hemp-like flavor due to the terpenes and other organic compounds involved. If you are after clean flavor, or if you will be vaping CBD e-liquid and want to be as inconspicuous as possible, CBD isolate is the best option.
After reading this guide, you should be able to differentiate between the types of CBD, and know what type should be a better fit for your needs. As with most things, the type of CBD you choose boils down to personal preference and priorities.
Full-spectrum CBD has shown lots of promise when it comes to effectiveness due to the entourage effect, but the risk of a failed drug test is not something that should be taken lightly. Isolate on the other hand is the most versatile CBD type, but you should take care to get the right dosage if you are using it in its powder form. For these reasons, some people may find that broad-spectrum CBD combines the best of both worlds.
Whatever you choose to go with, always make sure you are buying your CBD products from a reputable source that offers third-party test results. And as always, don’t hesitate to use the section below for your questions and comments.
