Does Vaping Make You High

First of all, let’s be clear that we are only discussing CBD vaping, not vaping of any other kind. Since CBD is extracted from cannabis, it is right to ask, “Does vaping make you high?”

Humans have used cannabis for thousands of years. However, they have not only used it for recreation. The cannabis plant has been crucial in treating ailments, religious experiences, spiritual journeys, and more.

Not only that, it is also a plant that has immense industrial significance. Hemp is a variety of cannabis plant that grows higher. It is low in substances that cause high, that is, THC. Its seeds are an excellent source of omega-3-rich vegetable oil. Humans have used its stalk to make robust fibres. These fibres are so robust that they were traditionally used to make sails of early ships. So, yes, cannabis made catching high winds possible and enabled sailing.

Does Vaping Make You High

The whole purpose of telling about the cannabis plant is to make sure that readers realize that the cannabis plant is not just about marijuana.

Hemp is just a type of cannabis plant that is naturally low in THC. Modern hemp varieties grown or cultivated in Europe or the UK naturally have a THC content of less than 0.03%. Yes, that is pretty low to cause a high until or unless you consume hemp in massive amounts.[1]

Just for comparison, Cannabis Indica, another variety of cannabis plants used for recreation or creating medications, has THC in massive amounts. It may have a THC concentration as high as 25%. Yes, those are huge amounts, and even small amounts of extract from that plant would cause a high.[2]

So, you see that though CBD is extracted from cannabis plants, it is derived from hemp plants legally cultivated. These plants are naturally very low in THC. Hence, their extracts are also low in THC. Nonetheless, the plant is high in CBD and other cannabinoids. Thus, this plant is perfect for CBD extraction and other cannabinoids.

So, as one can guess, CBD extracted from the hemp plant would not cause high. Since the substance that causes high, that is THC, is almost absent in the plant.

Many CBD vape juices and other products are made using CBD isolate. It is a special kind of product made from hemp plants. 

Therefore, if CBD vape was made using CBD isolate, it would be THC-free. This also means it cannot cause high even if you overdose.

However, there are also full-spectrum CBD vapes containing THC in small and legally permitted amounts. Nonetheless, the concentration of THC in those vapes is just too low to cause any high. Such vapes are just better for a relaxing effect. They are more potent than CBD isolate based vapes for anxiety relief, managing stress, and insomnia.

So, keep in mind that high is caused by THC. However, legally produced CBD vapes, vape pens, and juices are either THC-free or contain it in tiny amounts. They are created to provide that relaxing effect and cannot cause high in any way. That is why it is even safe to vape these pens and drive.

The Bottom Line

Cannabis is quite a versatile plant with many varieties. CBD vape pens and e-juices contain CBD extract that is either THC-free or has it in minute amounts. Thus, legal CBD products or vaping would not make you high. Of course, this small amount of THC will still make you feel more relaxed.

This is why experts recommend that beginners start vaping using CBD-isolate-based pens or vape juices. And, once you are comfortable or experienced, you can try something more potent and use full spectrum vape juices that contain THC in small amounts.
