CBD vape is not THC vape

In the news, you may have heard some scare stories about vaping. However, these relate to vaping THC oil, brought illegally. This isn’t from vaping regulated e-liquids designed to pass through devices and be inhaled.

The scare stories may have you worried that CBD vape e-liquid is as bad as THC oil.

We’re here to tell you all about it. 

What is CBD vape e-liquid 

Despite sometimes being called CBD vape oil, it is an e-juice. This is designed to go through your vape device and be inhaled. It is made up of PG, VG, flavorings and has CBD added to it. 

Oil is not designed to be inhaled. This is where the problem lies with the mysterious lung disease, also known as lipoid pneumonia. Lipoid pneumonia usually happens when animal fats or oils are inhaled.  

The oil will get stuck in your lungs, as it is not soluble in water. E-liquid is soluble in water, which is why it moves through the device and into your lungs and then back out. 

Why are people inhaling oil?

We agree, it sounds like a weird thing to do. However, on sale illegally is THC oil. THC oil is the cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant which will get you “high”. Users are then vaping the THC oil using cartridges and vape pod systems or other kits. 

The majority of those who died from this lung disease admitted to using THC oil. Those who didn’t were found to have vitamin E acetate in their system which is added to THC oil.

Is it safe to vape CBD oil?

No not CBD oil. It is best not to add CBD oil to your vape device. Instead make sure you are using CBD vape e-liquid, not tincture oil drops.  

CBD vape e-juice has been specially created and doesn’t contain oil, so it will not have the same effects as inhaling THC oil.

Will CBD vape get me high?

The idea of CBD vape juice is not to get you “high”. CBD has many therapeutic benefits that have been known to help people with various conditions, illnesses, and pain.

Even if your CBD vape juice contains trace amounts of THC it will not have any psychoactive effects.
