You’ve heard all the commotion in the media lately about CBD oil and vaping. But did you know you could combine the two? Believe it or not, there are some great benefits to using the vape method to enhance the use of CBD oil.
To find out more information on how to use CBD oil in a vape pen, check out the how-to guide below.
What Is CBD?
First, let’s get things cleared up about CBD. It is not illegal to consume.
CBD is the acronym for the Cannabidiol extract taken from the Cannabis plant. There is no high associated with this extract when it comes from hemp. It does not have the same effect on a person as smoking the buds of the marijuana plant. To be safe and to be legal in all states, choose CBD products from hemp. You will not get high and they are fully legal in all states.

What Does CBD Oil Help With?
Still not convinced on using it? Reportedly, CBD oil can help numerous conditions and diseases. While we cannot claim it helps with anything, many people certainly report that it can help ease some of the pain and suffering associated.
- Chronic pain and inflammation
These are only some of the conditions that people are reporting can be helped with CBD oil.
This is a word that you might see come up in your research on CBD oil. Terpenes are the extracts within CBD that affect the smell and taste of the product.
As with extracts used for cooking (or even essential oils), the name of the extract indicates the flavor associated.
Terpenes can range from pine, vanilla, and mint all the way to the obscure like cheese, cumin, and kumquat.
We choose to offer our CBD oil with added Terpenes to enhance the overall flavor and experience.
No, you’re not going to become Arnold Schwarzenegger, but it is important to understand why vaping CBD oil is more beneficial than ingesting.
Bioavailability refers to the amount of substance that enters your bloodstream when actively introduced to the body. This is important to consider when using any type of medication because it determines how much something affects you as an active ingredient.
Research suggests that by vaping CBD oil, the bioavailability is 50 – 60%, whereas normal ingestion only leads to 15%. By vaping it, the user is gaining a more accurate dosage, in a more efficient way.
Naturally, CBD oil does not mix well with water, the same as your typical salad dressing. The oil is going to float on top of the water, rather than mixing in with it.
That’s essentially what happens when ingesting CBD oil via the stomach. The oil is going to have to pass through the gut of the user before going into the bloodstream.
Even if the concentration is high, the liver and other organs will pull the oil out causing the bioavailability to be significantly lower.
To bypass that, turning the CBD oil into vapor allows for it to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream through the lungs. There’s no extra filtration of the organs there, so the bioavailability stays high at the 50 – 60%.
Okay, that’s all the technical info you need. Let’s get to the exciting stuff!

Cleaning Your Vape Pen
Just like anything else, keeping your vape pen clean will prolong the lifetime of the equipment, and will be healthier for you.
Metal can oxidize if it’s kept in a moist environment for too long. If the inside of your pen starts to change colors, it’s overdue for a cleaning.
The oxidization can cause micro-particles to flake off while in use, which means that those go directly into your body. Not a good situation!
White vinegar will become a best friend. Though it doesn’t smell too pleasant, it definitely gets the job done when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting.
Simply take apart your device, submerge your reservoir or tank into a bowl of white vinegar. Avoid getting any in the battery area, it could ruin the device.
Let the pen soak in the vinegar for no less than 10 minutes to soften and disinfect any particles that may be inside. If it still shows signs of filth once removed, soak again. It’s safe to add a small amount of bleach if you feel it is necessary.
Once removed, wipe down with a cloth and allow to fully dry before use. Repeat as necessary, but it’s recommended you do this weekly or bi-weekly depending on usage.
