Dabbing CBD vs. Vaping CBD

Liquid THC is not legal everywhere, but CBD vape pens are (in most part). Most people don't want to run the risk of getting caught with a THC vape, so many of them choose to get their cannabinoids from CBD vape pens. Vaping CBD from traditional vape pens isn't the only way to get your cannabinoids. You can also dab the extract in different forms as well.

One of the most important things to look for when purchasing any type of CBD product is certified lab test results. Any reputable CBD brand will have multiple independent third-party lab test results to certify their products are what they say they are. These test results not only let you know the purity, but they also let you know the potency of any CBD product you purchase.

Choosing a quality CBD product with a good reputation is always a wise decision. All CBD is not created equally. Some manufacturers try to slip in things like hemp seed oil, grape seed oil, and more.

What is CBD?

CBD is a short way of saying cannabidiol. CBD is a non-psychedelic compound produced by the cannabis plant. Over recent years, there has been a lot of talk circulating about the potential helath benefits of CBD oil. Cannabis legalisation is moving at a slow pace, and this is causing some countries to have drastic delays in research.

The research that has been conducted about CBD shows anecdotally that it has many different therapeutic properties. The United States Food and Drug Administration approved a CBD-based prescription drug called Epidiolex for the management of symptoms associated with two different types of epilepsy. The scientific discovery of CBD as we know it was said to have happened in 1940.

About two and a half decades later, CBD would begin to be understood when Dr. Raphael Mechoulam began studying cannabis. CBD offers all the benefits of cannabis minus the notorious, legendary intoxicating effects produced by THC. CBD can be found in both medical/recreational cannabis and industrial hemp. The CBD that is sold around the world is derived from industrial hemp, which just so happens to be very rich in this phytocannabinoid.

Unlike tobacco and nicotine, which comes with a wide array of health risks, CBD seems to offer more benefits than risks. The FSA recommends healthy adults only consume 70 mg of CBD within a 24-hour period. Consuming too much CBD could lead to headaches, nausea, jittery feelings, restlessness, and possibly even insomnia.

Different Types of CBD

CBD comes in a wide variety of flavours. You can also get CBD in many different strengths ranging from his little as 5 mg CBD to 1000 mg CBD or more. Beyond the different flavours and strengths of CBD, there are three different varieties of CBD consumers can choose from.
  • CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD having all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant compounds removed.
  • Full-spectrum CBD contains everything found in the industrial hemp plant, including trace amounts of THC, no more than 0.2% and no more than 1mg in a closed container. These are often sold as THC vape pens in UK. 
  • Broad-spectrum CBD has everything found in full-spectrum CBD minus the THC.

Different Types of Raw Concentrates

CBD comes in a wide variety of extract and concentrate types. CBD isolate only comes in powder or water soluble solution form, but both full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD can come in various forms. These include, distillate, crude paste, shatter, crystals, budder and wax to name a few. The type of extract will determine whether you can dab it or not. Usually shatter, budder and wax extract types are the ones you can dab. 

What Dabbing CBD Means

Dabbing CBD is much different from vaping CBD. You must take caution to be aware of how much CBD you're consuming and what type of CBD it is. You will also want to be very vigilant as to the strength of the CBD concentrate, you're consuming. Here’s an example of how a gram of CBD dab breaks down.

If a gram of CBD contains 80% CBD, that is roughly 800 mg of CBD per gram. If you broke that gram into 20 dabs, that would put each dab at around 40 grams of CBD per dab. When you dab CBD, you use a concentrated crystal-like substance (i.e. shatter, budder or wax) that is placed in a hot banger or on a hot nail or in a dab pen. Upon contacting the hot element, the CBD becomes vapor which is then inhaled.

What Vaping CBD Means

Vaping CBD is different from dabbing it. CBD vape juice are available in all three varieties of CBD with different strengths and flavours. Most commonly, CBD vape pens come with pre-filled cartridges or pods that can be disposed of when they run out. When you vape CBD, you're using an electronic device like a vape pen. Some people use CBD vape juice to load into their own refillable vape pens. It's really a matter of convenience for you. When CBD is vaped, the source is in liquid form as opposed to solid form when dabbing.

No matter if you’re dabbing CBD or vaping CBD, it means that you are getting cannabinoids in your system. Cannabiniods work with our body's endocannabinoid system to help increase communication between cells and nerves. This doesn't happen when smoking tobacco. Tobacco only releases a brief reward of dopamine, leaving you craving more. If you're wanting to vape CBD and completely avoid other cannabinoids like THC, CBN, or CBG, make sure that you only vape CBD isolate vape pens or e liquids. If you want other cannabinoids, you may want to opt for a broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD vape pen. Most importantly, enjoy your CBD experience no matter if you choose to dab or vape CBD.
