Vaping CBD: A Beginner's Guide

Vaping CBD is taking the UK cannabis market by storm.  It is the most popular technique to harness the therapeutic benefits of CBD. This blog discusses the advantages and benefits of vaping CBD and what CBD vape pens are.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound extracted from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD has no mind-altering effects such as hallucination, highness, and paranoia but exhibits therapeutic benefits like relieving body discomforts. There are many ways to use cannabinoids, but vaping is the most popular choice because it is more flexible and convenient. It involves using electronic devices like vape pens or pods to vaporize CBD oil into vapor for inhaling directly into the bloodstream via lung tissues. However, you need to know when people say vaping CBD oil; it means CBD vape juice or CBD e-liquid. You can't vape CBD oil.

Vaping CBD

Vaping, short for vaporizing, is a CBD consumption method where cannabis consumers use an electronic device to mimic the act of smoking cannabis. The most common vaping device is CBD vape pens.   The device consists of a battery that powers an atomizer in the chamber to vaporize CBD into an inhalable vapor inhaled directly into the lung tissues. However, there is a lot of controversy surrounding vaping CBD. One issue that pops up is whether extracted CBD oil and vape juice can be used interchangeably in the vape pen. A standard CBD oil is too viscous to be vaped. .According toYamashita et al. (2019), upon extraction, the CBD oil is subjected to high pressure to split its molecules, further forming fine super fluid oil for easy usein vaping.

What Is aCBD Vape Pen?

A CBD vape pen is a small electronic device that vaporizes CBD e-liquid. It is specifically designed and developed to heat CBD oil to the point it evaporates without being degraded or destroyed. They are convenient and mostly come with a user manual for how to use, store, and recharge. They are two types of CBD vape pens, namely:

Refillable CBD Vape Pens:

They contain a removable cartridge and battery. The cart can be easily filled when it runs dry of CBD e-liquid, while the battery has a charging port in case its power depletes. They also have a button to activate the device during the vaping session.

Disposable CBD Vapes

They contain a non-rechargeable battery and a permanently fixed cartridge. They contain a pre-determined amount of CBD oil and a certain number of puffs to deplete it. Unlike refillable, disposable vape pens are typically draw-activated with no button. Prime puffs are mostly used to jump-start the battery in powering the atomizer.

Advantages of Vaping CBD

Vaping is the most popular way to harness the benefits of CBD. It is more convenient than smoking since it causes no respiratory problems but instead helps to soothe the negative effects of smoking. Other CBD consumption methods include taking CBD oil sublingually by placing it under the tongue, ingesting CBD edibles, tablets, and CBD-infused cooked goods, and topically applying it to the affected area. However, vaping and inhaling CBD is the most recommended method of dealing with body complications since it offers the following advantages:

Fast Reaction Speed
Vaping is the fastest way to incorporate CBD into the bloodstream. CBD molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream through the soft lung tissues upon vaping, and its effects will kick in within 2 to 4 minutes. Other methods, such as ingesting, have a long onset time ( 1 to 3 hours) since the cannabinoid is subjected to digestion and liver metabolism before being absorbed into the bloodstream.


The ease of vaping makes it the best option to take CBD. Most vaporizers are small and sleek, sousers can store them in backpacks. They are readily available in almost all hemp shops at an affordable price. Furthermore, you can find CBD vaping devices that fit your lifestyle and preference.


Vaping devices like vape pens are very small and can be carried everywhere. They also don't produce smoke, and the vapor quickly disappears. Therefore, you can enjoy the calming effects of CBD at public events without drawing too much attention.

Increased Bioavailability

Hauser et al. (2018) suggested that vaping quickly allows high doses of CBD to penetrate the patient's system. Bioavailability is the degree of the rate at which a high amount of CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream. CBD consumers can easily consume high doses of CBD to tackle chronic conditions quickly, and the effects will manifest faster.

Good flavors

A bitter earthy taste, a big roadblock to many cannabis consumers, characterizes CBD oil. Fortunately, most CBD vaping devices contain CBD e-liquid infused with different ranges of flavors that provide a great platform for users to choose their favorite aroma.

Health Benefits of Vaping CBD

Immediately after vaping, CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream through the lung tissues, where it interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).  The system is responsible for maintaining body balance by treating body discomforts like pain, anxiety, and stress. Body health condition weakens the system affecting its functionality. Therefore, CBD interacting with ECS can provide the following benefits:

It Helps Manage Anxiety and Stress

CBD has anti-depressant properties, where it interacts with brain receptors to boost the production of the hormone serotonin. Increasing the hormone concentration alters how depressed patients perceive traumatic thoughts.
CBD helps in treating sleeping disorders like hypersomnias and insomnia. CBD induces calming effects in tired minds and muscles by vaping a few minutes before bed, making you fall asleep quickly.

Vaping CBD Can Help Alleviate Body Pains

According to Leas et al. (2021),CBD blocks the signaling of nerve impulses into the brain neurons by interacting with pain cannabinoid receptors, making you feel relieved and calm.

It Also Helps in Reducing Excessive Body Inflammation

It supports normal inflammatory responses by the immune system and promotes cell reproduction in healing damaged tissues.

Treats Cancer

Nayak et al. (2022) stated that CBD is powerful in fighting cancer cells and treating medicinal symptoms like vomiting.  It promotes the reproduction of healthy body cells, reducing the spread of cancer tumors.

Boost Focus

Vaping CBD helps to boost mental focus and clarity. It promotes the release of mental compounds like dopamine that control people's mental behavior and clarity.

CBD helps to boost body energy levels. Interaction of CBD with ECS receptors boosts the conversion of body fats into glucose, thus making you feel energetic.


Although there are many ways to take CBD oil, vaping is the most preferred and popular method. You will enjoy the good aroma, cost-effectiveness, fast reaction speed, and increased bioavailability in vaping CBD with a functional vaping device like CBD vape pens. Vaping can be easily customized to people's lifestyles depending on your preference, the style of the vaping device, and the dosage. Theyprovide many health benefits like boosting mental clarity and body energy, reducing body pains and inflammations, treating sleeping disorders, and even being used in cancer treatments.
