Is It Okay to Vape Once a Month?

Most people vape primarily for pleasure. It is a lifestyle choice for many. Of course, people also vape for its perceived benefits. For example, CBD vaping may help reduce stress and anxiety and help with physical ailments. Most who vape do it regularly. But is it okay to vape once a month?

There are Different Kinds of Vapes

It is vital to understand that there are different kinds of vapes. Among them, nicotine vapes are the most popular and have been used for quite some time. However, in recent years, CBD vape pens have become quite popular, as they are safer and have many health effects.

It does not matter what kind of vape it is; 98% of vape juice content is propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerine (VG). In most cases, PG and VG are in different ratios. These sugar alcohols (PG and VG) are mainly responsible for producing the vapour.

Other components of vape juice are flavours, CBD or nicotine, terpenes, and other additives.

How Much Vaping is Good

Vaping is one of the best and even recommended ways to quit smoking in the UK.[1]

However, it is worth understanding that vaping is not completely safe and there is no such thing as a healthy vape. Of course, it rarely causes some side effects; nonetheless, it causes some issues. It is several times safer than tobacco smoking but is not entirely safe.[2]

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) says that ingesting 10 mg of CBD a day is safe. This is approximately equal to 30-40 puffs a day.[3] Note that these recommendations are for daily and regular CBD intake. If you do it casually, you can safely vape much more without causing any risk.

However, the FSA’s recommendation is regarding oral CBD intake. These are not recommendations for vaping. This is because vaping causes some irritation and even respiratory tract inflammation.

So, what do we make of all the above information? It means that vaping is relatively safe and could be good in some instances. However, if you do not vape, do not start vaping at all.

It also means that though vaping is very safe when done casually, but it is not entirely safe. It does have some adverse health effects.

Is It Okay to Vape Once a Month

Now, coming to our primary question: what about vaping once a month? Many people do not vape regularly. They might vape when meeting friends or socializing. They might vape once to twice a month under specific conditions like meeting friends in a bar or a pub.

Well, it is worth understanding that dosage matters when it comes to vaping. Hence, it would be correct to say that vaping casually, like once or twice a month, is not likely to cause any adverse effects.

Of course, much would depend on the dosage. If you vape once a month, that is not likely to cause harm if you do not abuse or vape too much on that given day.

There is no study or data indicating that vaping in such small amounts may cause any harm. This is because, even if someone is intolerant to vapes, vaping once a month will provide enough time for the lungs to recover.

Moreover, if you vape nicotine or CBD, there is something called a washout period. That is the time after which these substances are not found in the body. The body is generally able to get rid of nicotine or CBD completely in two or three days. Casual vaping means the body has much time to recover from the minutest of injuries that vapes might cause.

The Bottom Line

There are a few things to understand: vaping is not very bad or harmful to health. However, it is not a healthy habit. Some vape ingredients like terpenes and CBD are indeed quite good for health in most cases. However, at the same time, it is also worth understanding that vaping does cause some irritation of the respiratory tract.CBD vaping, in particular, can NOT be used as an antidepressant or to treat any underlying medical conditions. 

Some people appear to be intolerant of vapes. It means that they are more likely to develop health issues than others. Fortunately, most adults tolerate vaping well.

Based on these understandings, it would be correct to say that vaping casually is entirely safe. This is especially true for CBD vaping. Once a month, vaping is not likely to cause any adverse effects. This is because of very low exposure to the vapours. Additionally, the body gets enough time to metabolize, regenerate, revive, and cleanse.
