You may have noticed that CBD vapes are increasingly populating the shelves everywhere, from small gas stations to high-end cannabis stores all around the world. You can even find them next to nicotine vapes which makes it seems like they’re alternatives for smoking cigarettes or tobacco.
However, that is not so! While they are not habit-forming or addictive, like nicotine-containing products, CBD vapes should be used for their intended purposes; medical and calming effects.
Let’s have a gander at what CBD is and its many benefits for your body.
What is a Cannabinoid (CBD)?
CBD is a chemical compound found in cannabis plants. There are many components within the plants – so far only 104 have been identified – and research mostly focuses on two key components.
- THC: The component that gives you the ‘high’ that is usually associated with using cannabis.
- CBD: The component that gives you the calming effect, and has shown to help with pain and anxiety.
There are two main types of cannabinoids: phytocannabinoids which come from the plant and endocannabinoids that we have in our bodies.
It is this second type of cannabinoids that help us keep our bodies regulated and well-balanced. Cannabinoid receptors in the body can be activated through internal or external sources (CBD, THC).
So if you’re too hot? They’ll cool you down! Running low on sugar? Sends hunger signals! Running low on aqua? The thirst is quenched (with a signal)!
Best of the CBD Vape!
The cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis have already shown tremendous benefits for various conditions that affect the natural balance of your body.
However, apart from that, it was found that CBD can help with a huge range of more serious medical issues such as:
There are more problems that CBD has helped tackle and research is still looking into the benefits of CBD on Alzheimer’s, obesity and respiratory diseases.
Are there any negatives to CBD?
The short answer is…we don’t fully know.
There are not a lot of long-term studies with data showing if there are any negative effects of CBD.
On the bright side, short-term studies show that adults tolerate CBD well with various doses and with no serious side effects to vital organs or the central nervous system.
Some folks have reported feeling mellow and some change in their appetite (munchies anyone?).
There you have it guys, CBD is pretty safe and beneficial to use! Research is still finding more information and its effects, but so far it has been shown nothing but good potential.
As inhaling CBD is still the most popular and effective way of using this oil, I’m sure the popularity of vapes will continue to grow. Do your own research before purchasing a vape, and definitely make sure you buy the best CBD vape for you and your needs.
