Your friend hands you a joint packed with high-THC cannabis oil. You’ve never smoked before, but peer pressure gets the best of you. So you take a deep puff, forcing that smoke down your lungs until, suddenly. You’re coughing uncontrollably for the next two minutes. And stoned for the next two hours.
The next time you’re over, like clockwork, a joint is passed around. But you’ll be damned if that happens again.
No, this time you take a puff and contort your breath to keep the smoke towards the front of your mouth for a quick second, then immediately whoosh it out.
Result? You didn’t get high. At least, it’s nothing compared to last time.
Asking the Right Questions
I don’t know if you can relate to that story, but it’s one I’d forgotten about until recently. I mean, subconsciously, that experience stuck with me and played a part in how I vaped later in life.
But I didn’t really think about it until recently when talking to a lady about her CBD vape.
“Why aren’t I feeling anything?”
she asked over the sound of a toddler’s tantrum in full-swing. She let out a laugh, explaining the toys her nephew was banned from touching after a toilet-related incident earlier that day. She certainly deserves CBD to work for her.
At first I thought, maybe CBD just isn’t right for her. But then, finally, the right questions came out.
How long should you inhale CBD vape?
She had been taking in a quick breath through her vaporizer, then almost immediately blowing the vape out. She liked the way the little vapor clouds looked and thought..well, that that’s how you do it.
To get the most effect out of your CBD vape, you should take in a deep breath when you vape. Breath in for about 3 seconds, and breath deep enough that the vapor goes to the back of your throat. After another 3 seconds or so, exhale the vape.
That will allow the CBD to actually get into your system. Whereas if you breathe it out immediately, much less is absorbed into your body.
How often should you vape CBD?
The appeal of vaping CBD is that you can do it anytime. It’s socially acceptable nowadays, so you shouldn’t feel weird pulling a vaporizer pen out of your bag and taking a couple puffs.
It’s very convenient if you need a lot of CBD throughout the day, or if it’s situational so you need an inconspicuous way to get CBD wherever you are.
Not to mention, vaping in itself is relaxing. And it doesn’t hurt that it tastes good, as opposed to most other CBD products.
When considering how often you should vape CBD, that’s something only you know —or that you can learn. There isn’t enough research, so you should pay attention to your body. Experiment to find what works for you, and just keep in mind that taking “too much” CBD isn’t a big deal. Some people get tired, dizzy or a slight stomach ache.
Will CBD vape get me high?
CBD is non-intoxicating, so it will not get you high. Hemp-derived CBD vapes are for-sure not going to get you high because they have 0.3% or less THC.
Just make sure you find a reliable source, because there are some shady products on the market. If you’re unsure about a product, ask for a COA (certificate of analysis) so you can review the lab results, which shows the cannabinoid profile.
If you’re vaping cannabis oil, even if it has CBD, there’s likely also a notable amount of THC. Out of the 80+ cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, THC is the only one that’s been found to cause intoxicating (“high”) effects.
Do your research to find out exactly what you’re putting in your body if you’re concerned about what the effects will be.
You’ve heard it before: we don’t know what we don’t know.
If someone is new to or considering vaping for the very first time, it may seem pretty straight-forward. A no-directions-wanted type of situation. They might not know to even consider there are tricks to it. So I hope this information will help someone discover that, with the right technique, you’ll get a lot more out of your CBD vape.
