What are the effects and benefits of vaping CBD?
A lot of research has been conducted on CBD (cannabidiol), and many believe this substance has a lot of benefits to a variety of conditions and symptoms. CBD is a compound found in a cannabis plant and can be extracted from marijuana or industrial hemp, it then goes through the necessary process for consumption.
CBD produced from hemp won’t get you “high”. It simply doesn’t contain nearly enough THC to do so. It can however produce a comforting feeling of relaxation and stress relief without the anxiety and paranoia that marijuana produces. CBD is described as: “an overall improvement in mood” but still so much more.
How to consume CBD?
You don’t necessarily need to be a smoker to consume CBD. There is more than one way to consume it, like topicals (lotions, creams, salves) edibles, capsules, but vaping is by far one of the most easiest and enjoyable ways to consume CBD. Not only that, but the effectiveness of CBD smoked through a vape device is greatly increased. Inhaling this substance means the user can absorb more of what it has to offer.
Most common reported effects & benefits of CBD
• Pain relief
• Stress relief
• Improved mood
• Sleepiness (in high doses)
• Alertness (in low doses)
Even though there is not a lot of research on vaping this oil in the long run, scientists have done their research on CBD, and suggest that this substance can also have a positive effect or benefits on the following, because of its wide range of therapeutic properties:
Prevents plaque buildup in arteries
Stimulating new bone growth
Strengthening bones affected by osteoporosis
In another study, epileptic patients that received 200-300mg of CBD per day had fewer seizures. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved of a CBD-based drug for treating seizures in June 2018, making it the first drug that contains a purified substance derived from cannabis and that is FDA approved. This drug is called Epidiolex.
If you ever think that CBD oil might be for you, make sure you get your supplies from a trusted source or brand, there have been reports of “CBD oil” containing synthetic chemicals that can make the user feel uncomfortable. Reputable brands tend to have very good customer and professional reviews.
CBD can be seen as nature’s very own medicine. Not only does it help for a number of health issues, but it’s also organic and safe to use. As a result of this, more countries are legalizing the use of CBD. Both Canada and South Africa legalized the use of marijuana in 2018 and many countries are sure to follow in their footsteps. This is one of the stepping stones in our modern world and vapers will be able to join in this new proven health trend.
I am a small business owner in South Africa. I am passionate about educating the public about the health benefits of vaping in my free-time. As a former smoker, I have personal experience about the differences between smoking cigarettes and vaping. The moment that I learnt about vaping, I became obsessed with the idea and since then I can honestly say that I’m physically healthier and socially more comfortable. The blog of Heaven Gifts has given me a platform to share my thoughts about vaping.
