Vaping CBD

Vaping seems to be a modern trend but it is actually an ancient practice. The practice of breathing in steam or smoke from burning herbs probably goes back into prehistory. The first evidence of it is from ancient Egypt. Herbs were used in sweat lodges and saunas as well. While the intention wasn’t precisely to breathe the smoke it definitely happened.

The idea for an electronic cigarette came about in 1927 but the technology wasn’t there. It was 1965 when a man named Herbert Gilbert invented the first “smokeless nontobacco cigarette.” Since then vaping has come into its own.

At first it was a means to quit smoking. The nicotine hit would be there but could be slowly lowered. However a lot of people kept using the e-cigarettes. As time progressed different flavors were add to the e-juice.

The first mass produced e-cigarette was created in the 2000s by a Chinese pharmacist. His name was Hon Lik. The reason for his invention was simple. His father died a slow, cruel death from lung cancer. His father was a heavy smoker and Mr. Hon wanted to find a way to help prevent the cancer.

Once congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill experimentation with hemp began. It didn’t take very long before there were vape cartridges for CBD as well. Most people who use CBD for health reasons agree that it is a safer method of getting the cannabinoids where they need to be as fast as possible.

There are a lot of good points about vaping CBD. First, of course, is that CBD is scientifically proven to be effective for pain, inflammation, anxiety and depression. It’s also known that the receptors in the endocannabinoid system respond to CBD when it is smoked as well as when it is vaped. That’s a good thing because it means it is fast acting. It doesn’t have to go through the digestive tract before it can be helpful.

The main benefit vaping has over smoking is that it removes smoke from the equation. People with lung diseases, which also respond to CBD, will find that it is far smoother and less irritating. Vaping also gives more of the chemical per puff than smoking does.

Vaping CBD is also a lot more convenient than smoking it. Many cities and states have strict no smoking policies. Some go as far as restricting smoking in a vehicle with a passenger. Add to that the fact that many people don’t know the difference between hemp and marijuana vaping seems the perfect answer. It is also highly portable and easy to use.

Is there any danger to vaping CBD? There are potential problems just as there are with other medications. One is a health risk for people with pre-existing illnesses, particularly asthma. Too much oil in a puff or heating it too high can cause coughing fits. Thankfully these can be taken care of by looking carefully at the settings on the vape pen.

There is another reason for keeping the vape temperature lower. CBD oil is thick and not conducive to use in a vape pen. Thinning agents have to be added. The two most common thinning agents are propylene glycol and polyethylene glycol. Both of these break down into carcinogens when overheated.
At least one study also found that propylene glycol can induce coughing fits, especially in people prone to them.

There is a way around this problem as well. Instead of vaping the oil there are vape pens that allow you to vape the dried flowers. These eliminate the need for thinners at least until some can be found that are not a problem.

It is also important to be sure of your source of CBD oil. Not all producers use proper techniques. The number one issue on this topic as something called cuticle wax. That is not the wax on a humans nails but a substance found on the hemp plant itself. Smoking the plant burns this wax but vaping doesn’t burn at high enough of a temperature to do that. The problem is that it collects in the lungs and can potentially cause serious lung problems over time.

Addiction: CBD has been proven to not be an addictive substance. That said, actions can be addictive and the act of vaping itself can be an addiction. The actual concept of vaping CBD can cause people to become obsessed with it, partly due to the novelty, wonder and convenience of this method over any others.

These process addictions can be treated using behavior therapy. If one develops it does require professional help to get your life back together. Like substance addiction process addiction affects the brain. Unlike substance addiction this effect is indirect. It still exists and needs attention.

Dangerous thinners: The unscrupulous will not care what they use to thin the CBD oil. While the two thinners mentioned may have problems there are others. There is also a problem, mentioned by psychiatrist Dr. Agress, that the unscrupulous may not just use hemp.

How can you steer clear of these possible problems? The answer is that you have to be quality conscious. Make sure that the person who provides the CBD juice uses proper methods. Be certain that the only compound other than the appropriate thinner is hemp and be careful about using it. You also need to be sure you have a quality vape pen.

You also want to get a vape pen specifically designed for CBD. Some of these pens don’t require thinning agents which alleviates the problem of respiratory disease. They are often set up for microdosages where those meant as regular cigarette vape pens may not be. The vape fluid for these pens can contain essential oils that help the problems that require CBD. Lavender and peppermint essential oils can help with pain relief. Menthol and eucalyptus can help for sinuses and lavender once again is useful for anxiety.
