CBD is short for cannabidiol, a compound found in plants belonging to the genus Cannabis. CBD is just one compound in a whole group called cannabinoids. CBD by itself has a number of properties that have been found to be beneficial to health with the added benefit of not making you high. However, according to the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) CBD is not considered a medicine and cannot be prescribed by doctors. No medical claims can be made regarding CBD stating that it can cure any illnesses. In keeping with the HPRA regulations, we at Dr. Hemp Me do not answer any questions regarding the medical benefits CBD is rumoured to have.
CBD oil and CBD Vape oil
CBD oil or CBD tincture is a product that has been specially prepared to be taken orally under the tongue. CBD, when extracted from the plant, is in solid form and is dissolved in a food grade oil to help ingestion and absorption by the body. The oils used for CBD tincture are usually vegetable oils like hemp seed oil, olive oil, or canola oil. For more information on how to find high-grade CBD Cannabis Oil click on this link.
If a product is marked CBD oil or CBD tincture it is important to note that these products cannot be put in a vape pen and vaped. The carrier oils are not ideal for heating and releasing the vapours of CBD.
Dr. Hemp Me CBD Vape-Oil, on the other hand, has been created specifically to be vaped. The oils used for this purpose are thinned to make them less viscous and easier to heat. Vape oils are also known as Vape e-liquids because their consistency is much thinner than oil. When placed in a vape pen the Vape Oil heats quickly releasing the CBD vapours.
What is a vaporizer?
A vaporizer or a vape pen is a device that can be used to generate CBD vapours for inhaling through the mouth. A vaporizer has a chamber where the vape oil can be placed, and heating coils that heat the oil. There is a spout through which the vapours can be sucked into the mouth.
Does Vaping get you High?
CBD is non-psychoactive and does not have the same effect on the body as smoking high THC weed does. Vaping allows the CBD to enter the body and quickly get picked up by the bloodstream without having any intoxicating effects.
The Benefits of Vaping CBD
Vaping has several benefits including:
- The temperature used in vaping is much lower than the temperature used in smoking which means that you only inhale vapours and not smoke and particulates.
- Vaping CBD is the quickest way to feel the effects of CBD.
- Vaporizing causes CBD to be suspended in very small droplets of vapour allowing it to get absorbed quickly and efficiently by the bloodstream. This helps the effects of CBD to be felt sooner than if ingested orally.
- Vape pens are compact and easy to carry around.
Dr. Hemp Me currently supply two different strengths for vape products. They include 100mg and 300mg CBD. Additional CBD vaping products will be added in the near future.
