If you have never used CBD Vape Oil products before you probably have questions about them, the most common one we get asked is “does vaping CBD Oil get you high?”
This is such a common question we thought we’d better address it, obviously with all the similar connections between the tabaco and cannabis industries we have found a lot of misconceptions which need to be cleared up around CBD, that being said the reality is Vaping CBD Oil alone does not get you high, but it does have many therapeutic benefits.
Vaping is probably one of the easiest ways you can get a good daily intake of CBD (cannabidiol) into your system because of the fast way it enters into the bloodstream via your lungs so it doesn’t take very long to take effect, anything from almost immediately to just a few minutes.
But to understand exactly why CBD doesn’t get you high, we should look into what plants it is extracted from.
Sourcing CBD Oil
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring chemical found in the cannabis plant family. On its own CBD is non-psychoactive and doesn’t get you high. This has caused some confusion within the industry because there are CBD vape products on the market that do get you high.
The psychoactive side effect depends on where the CBD is derived from either marijuana or hemp.
Both marijuana and hemp are from the cannabis plant family that have naturally occurring CBD. The main difference between these 2 plants is in the levels of THC.
THC is probably the most known cannabis chemical due to its psychoactive properties. Hemp has been cultivated to have very low THC and high CBD; so, to be legally considered as hemp, the cannabis plant must have less than 0.2% THC here in the UK. 0.2% is considered a trace amount that will not create a high. Marijuana is cultivated to have high THC; plus the levels of CBD in marijuana vary depending on the strain.
Vape e-liquids containing CBD extracted from hemp are non-psychoactive and are legal in the UK, EU & the USA but Vape e-liquids containing CBD derived from marijuana are psychoactive and are only legal in certain states in the USA that have legalised the medicinal or recreational use of marijuana, but here in the UK and most of Europe it is illegal.
All our CBD Vape Oil is made with hemp-derived CBD oil and certain products do contain a small amount of THC but they are all UK EU & USA legal as they contain less than 0.2%.
Our CBD vape liquids will not create a high. If you are interested in learning more about our products, visit our shop page.
CBD Vape Oil Effects
CBD interacts with our very own endocannabinoid system, and has recently been proven to have a significant impact on homeostasis. Homeostasis is the balance of our body and cells amidst external changes. A balanced endocannabinoid system has been linked to a number of therapeutic benefits.
In conclusion to our post, when CBD is sourced from hemp, CBD does not get you high. With that in mind, it is important to buy from a reputable seller to ensure that the amount of CBD and THC mentioned on the label is what is in the product. To know you’re getting what you pay for ask the manufacturer/seller for a COA, or certificate of analysis. This will confirm the levels of chemical compounds in a CBD product.
