In a previous article we discussed some of the benefits and short term side effects of CBD. The long-term effect of CBD vape isn't exactly clear. The medical community spends a lot of time contradicting and trying to disprove cannabis in most places rather than learning about what it has to offer. Research regarding CBD in Israel is decades ahead of places like the UK and the United States. In order for the long-term effect of CBD vape to be studied, tight regulation needs to continue to assure product quality control.
When The legal CBD industry kicked off in the UK, it was a mess. Products were loosely regulated and seldom contained what was actually on ingredient labels. Regulatory authorities stepped in and changed this, setting strict guidelines for CBD products sold in the UK. All products must have multiple certified lab test results and offer certificates of analysis for merchants and consumers at all times. This helped people buy the best refillable CBD vape pens easily, without compromising quality and without fear of buying something that is either illegal or worse, fake.
To look at the long-term effect of CBD vape, it would have to have been legal for a long time, and quality CBD products would have to be factored into these effects. Substandard CBD vape does not produce the same results as quality CBD vape. In order to begin to paint a picture of the long-term effect of CBD vape, we have to turn our attention to consumer reports. By looking at what other people are saying about vaping CBD and watching the popularity of CBD vape, we can begin to see some of what CBD does or doesn't do.
Vaping CBD has been a popular trend since about 2018. You may have opted for the best CBD vape oil for anxiety and want to know what the long term effects are. Since this time, the CBD industry has taken off globally. In 2019, the CBD industry in the UK was worth around £300 million. 3 and 1/2 years later, in 2023, the UK CBD industry is worth £700 million and on track to be worth £1 billion by 2025. These numbers don't necessarily pertain to CBD vaping but to CBD as a whole. It's hard to iron out statistically who has been consuming CBD long-term and who hasn't. There are many other things to take into consideration, such as dependency issues, medications, and mental and physical health, when looking at the effects of a CBD vape.
CBD vape is considered a safe option for smoking tobacco or marijuana. One of the big differences between the two is that traditional smoking requires the burning of leafy material, which releases carcinogens. In the case of cigarettes, there are around 5,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke, of which 70 of them are known to cause cancer. Beyond Cancer causing carcinogens, smoking tobacco causes users to inhale poisonous gasses and toxic metals too.
As positive cannabis reform laws are passed, more effort will be tailored toward the study of topics such as the long-term effect of CBD vape. Until then, we'll have to look to all the happy people seeing great results who continue to buy CBD for our answers.
