How to Mix CBD Oil and Vape Juice
Since the invention of vaping, companies have attempted to find many different ways to innovate and alter how we vape. Even when we look back to the creation of the vape, the creator knew that the market would not get excited about just any plain flavor. Because of this, even before vaping started to trend worldwide, people were vaping with a variety of different flavors.
The technique of adding additional flavors to vape juice came about for a number of different reasons. First of all, vape juice with a variety of flavors is more appealing to the general public, which means people would be more likely to purchase the vape juice. It is also important to remember that the vast majority of vape has nicotine in it, which isn’t necessarily an appealing scent or taste. Because of this, adding differing smells and flavors became the norm for most vape companies, in fact it is rare to find a publicly sold flavorless vape.
As flavors and scents were added with a positive response from the public, it was clear that there was a gap in the market for adding additional features to vape juice.
Vaping CBD oil
While vaping was skyrocketing in popularity, there was a new product that was taking the world by storm. Much like vaping, CBD is no new creation. However, before the last decade very little was known about the product, aside from its association with marijuana.
Is IT Beneficial to Vape with CBD?
Once CBD oil became much more popular in the common domain, further research was done into the benefits of using CBD oil. Before further research was completed on CBD oil, there had been a negative association with CBD due to poor advertising done by companies that didn’t want an increase of business in the hemp business. However, once you looked past these facts, it is clear to see that CBD oil has a lot of benefits to your mental and physical health.
Mental Benefits of Vaping with CBD
CBD oil has been proven to have a positive impact on the state of your mental health. This is especially the case if you are dealing with mental health issues such as anxiety. CBD oil has been proven to change the way that the receptors in the brain respond to serotonin. Studies have suggested that dosing as little as 600mg of CBD oil helps people with anxiety function better as a member of society and leaves them feeling more relaxed and less nervous.
CBD oil has also been used to treat a variety of other mental health issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and even insomnia. So it is no wonder why the oil has become so popular in recent years.
Will Mixing Vape and CBD Help with Physical Pain?
As well as helping overcome mental health issues, research has also shown that CBD oil can be extremely effective when trying to deal with physical ailments. Now, there has been no verified proof that CBD oil can completely rid you of your physical problems, but it has been proven to offer pain relief.
CBD oil has proven to be especially beneficial for those who are suffering with chronic pain disorders that don’t enjoy the idea of taking constant doses of pain relief medication that can lead to drowsiness.
CBD is actually so effective as a pain relief that it has been integrated into many prescribed medications. For example, in the UK there is a product called Sativex which is a combination of THC and CBD. This is prescribed to people with issues such as MS and painful arthritis, however this medication is rarely prescribed and so people choose to use CBD oil to directly combat their physical pain.
Can Vaping CBD Help with Acne?
A lesser known fact about CBD oil is that it actually has anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this, it is actually commonly used as a way to treat acne. It can either be applied directly to the skin or digested.
With all of the positive effects that CBD can have, there is no wonder why people have become eager to integrate it into their lifestyle. However, digesting the CBD oil as it is can be inconvenient. Afterall, when you’re out and about, you don’t really want to be using a dropper to redose CBD. Because of this, people started to think up new and innovative solutions for how to take doses of CBD oil in a convenient way.
Within this search, it was discovered that CBD oil could actually be mixed with vape juice and digested via e-cigarette. People found this to be much more convenient than digesting the oil via food or straight from the source. They also found that the effects of vaping CBD oil were much more immediate than other forms of digestion.
Due to the popularity of the CBD oil and vape juice combination, many companies actually released a CBD vape which had the CBD oil premixed into the formula. However, there were limitations on how much CBD oil they could actually put into the vape and many people found the standard CBD vape to not be strong enough to meet their needs. Because of this, many CBD users decided that it would be better to premix their own CBD oil with vape juice, but how exactly do you do that?
The process of mixing CBD oil with vape juice
Decide how much CBD you would like to take
Before you can mix your CBD oil, it is important to consider just how much oil you want to digest during the day. It is not a good idea to eyeball how much you will be using and when you use a CBD oil, there will be recommended doses that you should take depending on what you need. Most CBD oils will be accompanied by a pipette and usually it will not be recommended to use more than a couple of drops from the pipette. However, when mixed with vape juice, you should add more as one tank of vape could last more than 24 hours.
How to mix the two
Mixing vape liquid with CBD oil is actually very straightforward and can be done in a number of different ways, depending on how you choose to vape.
For most people, the process can be as simple as adding a couple of droplets of CBD oil to pre-existing eliquids of your choice. It is recommended that you only add CBD oil to vape juice that lacks nicotine, as nicotine and CBD oil could combine and make an unpleasant taste. Nicotine also reverses a lot of the effects that CBD oil has, so it would be recommended to avoid this.You can also use the method of using a CBD booster, combined with a shortfill of your favorite vape juice. It’s extremely straightforward, however you should make sure that your CBD oil is properly mixed with your vape juice. This can be done by giving it a vigorous shake by hand, which will take no longer than a few seconds. If you are someone that creates your own vape juice, then you may have access to a miniature mixture. These are much more effective mixing tools and will ensure that there is no separation with your product.
How To Mix A CBD Booster
Premixed CBD e-liquid has already proven popular, this might be due to not many people knowing how to mix an unflavoured CBD booster with their current favourite e-liquid. I’m sure if more people knew how to, they would rather this method of vaping CBD as the booster is higher in concentrate than pre-mixed CBD e-liquid.
There are two ways of mixing your CBD booster with your e-liquid, you can use the CBD as a shot for a shortfill or add the CBD to your tank which is a little bit more accurate. Please look at our CBD Dosage Blog, to see what your daily dosage is, only then you would be able to calculate the correct percentage of CBD to mix.
Here at House of Vapes – London we currently have an extensive range of CBD products from brands such as Hello CBD, CBDfx, Somnio CBD & more.
The Tank Calculation
Here are a couple of examples of how to calculate a desired daily dosage of 10mg CBD with a 500mg bottle and a 300mg of CBD Booster pure base.
A drop from a bottle/dropper is equivalent to 0.05ml.
A 10ml bottle of CBD that contains 500mg means that 1ml of the bottle is equivalent to 50mg CBD. In order to achieve a dosage of 10mg, you would need to divide the 1ml by 5 and add the 0.2ml of CBD to your tank then fill up the rest with your favourite e-juice. In order to add 0.2ml to your tank, you will need to use 4 drops of CBD Booster.
A 10ml bottle of CBD that contains 300mg means that 1ml of the bottle is equivalent to 30mg CBD. In order to achieve a dosage of 10mg, you would need to divide the 1ml by 3 and add the 0.33ml of CBD to your tank then fill up the rest with your favourite e-juice. In order to add 0.33ml to your tank, you will need to use around 6 or 7 drops of Pure Base CBD.
Depending on the CBD strength used, you will get different results. All you need is quick and simple maths to calculate the correct number of drops needed. We have created a chart with the strengths available from us to make it even easier for you.
The Shortfill Calculation
Similar to the Nicotine Booster Guide, in order to get to the desired CBD dosage, you will need to add 10ml booster bottle to a shortfill then calculate the following CBD strength added (300mg) divided by end result (60ml) = 5mg per 1ml. This means that if your daily dosage is 10mg, you can use 2ml of your mixed 300mg 60ml CBD.
Below we have created a chart with the most used boosters mixed with shortfills.
Please note that you should NOT use nicotine with CBD e-liquids, as nicotine can counteract the effects of CBD.
Both premixed CBD e-liquid and unflavoured CBD boosters are great, however, the boosters are financially better, and you can enjoy your favourite flavours with the addition of CBD. In addition to this, we believe that it is easier to monitor your daily CBD usage when using a CBD booster whether the tank method or the shortfill method.
