With more than 20 states still debating on whether or not they should legalize marijuana for medical use, only 29 states have officially implemented frameworks that allow residents to apply for medical marijuana. And of that 29, only 8 have allowed marijuana for recreational use. With these restrictions in place, CBD oil has become the latest trend and has slowly been dominating the cannabis market for the past 18+ months.
It’s important to note, however, that CBD oil is only permitted in states that have adopted a medical or recreationally legal approach towards cannabis. If you are thinking of using CBD oil, then it’s important to understand your state’s laws as some states specify that CBD oil can only be used to treat specific medical conditions, such as epilepsy.
A lot of consumer’s today testified that CBD vape oil is worth to buy, it is the best product that gives the value of what you are paying. Some suppliers sell CBD vape oil for $30-$100 and 25mg-300mg of CBD per bottle or cartridge others offer are cheapest which giving you the chance to pick the best item or price. But, you should know that high retail prices are reflecting with high importing fees, process, manufacturing and other factors, thus it doesn’t mean that the cheapest one is the best option.
To use CBD oil tinctures you put a pipette filled with oil under your tongue and leave it there for a minute or so before swallowing. The CBD in the oil (or at least a good part of it) is absorbed by the soft tissue under the tongue. The balance is swallowed, digested, and processed through the liver, which takes much longer (up to a couple hours).
The creators of Koi CBD had prior experience making e-juice, so it only made sense for them to step into the booming market of CBD vape oils. What separates Koi from the tons of other CBD hemp oil companies? Aside from their quality, Koi CBD’s biggest selling point is the flavors.
This is explained in an article from High Times, but the short version is that the DEA considers all CBD products cannabis extracts, which in turn means they’re Schedule I controlled substances under federal law.
CBD’s ability to target a specific serotonin receptor, the serotonin 1A receptor, is associated with a remarkable range of therapeutic possibilities. Professor Roger Pertwee, a pharmacologist from the University of Aberdeen, spoke with Leafly about this aspect of CBD biology.
Figure 2. Receptor Systems Involved in CBD’s Potential Therapeutic Applications. CBD interacts, either directly or indirectly, with many different receptor systems in the brain. It indirectly influences the major cannabinoid receptor in the brain by decreasing THC’s ability to stimulate this receptor. It also interacts with a variety of other receptors. A subset of these are shown here. Each red shape represents a different brain receptor that might be found on a neuron. Some of the potential therapeutic applications associated with CBD’s interaction with each receptor system are listed below each receptor.
Overall, while there are reasons to choose marijuana-derived CBD oil over hemp-derived CBD oil, there are practical issues that make hemp an easier choice and the downsides can be minimized by responsible companies.
Most Oil vaporizers on this list work with pre-filled 510 cartridges, and some with refillable cartridges. 510 is the standard thread that connects the cartridge to the vape pen. Other ways to vape weed include dry herb vaporizers or vape pens for wax & dab.
The confusion starts with the word cannabis. Yes, cannabidiol (or CBD) compound is found in both, cannabis and hemp but it is the THC (the other compound in cannabis) that is psychoactive and that will give you that high feeling. The reason why CBD is non-psychoactive is due to its lack of affinity for CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are found in high concentrations in the brain, and are the pathways responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC.
I’ve done an incredible amount of research on CBD after someone suggested that I use it to treat a year long painful case of sciatica. I was at the end of my rope. The VA wouldn’t even diagnose the problem and the 3 Dr’s I saw on the outside all agreed that it was sciatica that needed surgery, they also agreed that my heart problems would make having surgery very risky. Another patient told about using CBD oil to treat the inflammation and gave me the name of the that he bought his from. I bought a 1000mg oz and probably took more than I needed to but by day 3 I could really feel the difference and by day 5 the pain was nearly gone! I take blood thinners for my heart problem and when the VA tested my blood it was dangerously thin! As it turns out taking CBD orally impacts the liver enzyme P-450, a vital enzyme for breaking down almost all medications! I have only found 2 CBD companies that know about it! I hope I got your attention and you should research it yourself (google) if you have to take medication everyday. If you don’t than don’t worry about it! The P-450 enzyme can actually cause your daily medications build up in your system and cause an overdose so please just check it out for yourself!
But it’s really even more complicated than that. Even if CBD oil is considered illegal in your state, the truth is that enforcement of any rules around it has been very lax. In fact, there are hardly any instances of people being arrested for selling CBD oil, and apparently no examples of people being punished for possessing it.
Consider this – while the dangers of tobacco have been extremely well-known and well-documented for decades, at least the industry is regulated in a way that allows consumers to KNOW what they’re ingesting. For instance have you ever seen the massive “This Product Causes Cancer” warning labels on the side of cigarette packs? It’s scary, but at least it’s transparent.
The dosage of CBD in the e-juice works just like in oils and tinctures: you choose from a range of strengths (listed for the whole bottle), in the same way you’d choose nicotine strength for an ordinary e-juice. There are quite a wide range of strengths, from 20 or 30 mg per 10 mL up to 500 mg per 10 mL, or even higher. As usual, start on a lower dose and work your way up if you aren’t sure.
Koi CBD publishes third-party test results on their official website for their entire line of e-liquids. Koi uses a natural CBD isolate process that helps eliminate that strong, earthy aftertaste that is frequently associated with other CBD oil vapes.
This is usually a high-CBD oil derived from hemp, with only very small amounts of THC. “Full-spectrum” or “broad spectrum” extractions contain other cannabinoids in small quantities too. Some CBD oil is purified and doesn’t include other cannabinoids; it may be just pure CBD mixed with hemp seed oil or other types of oil.
Red Devil is a strawberry-vanilla flavor with hints of tangerine and mango for tropical fruit lovers. Black Kat is a marshmallow-cereal flavor with a hint of cinnamon. Blue Moon also has Flan, a caramel-vanilla custard and Pure, an unflavored additive to be mixed in with your all day vape.
Stories like Charlotte Figi’s have really brought CBD into the spotlight, and the CBD market is seeing the benefit of all the positive attention. CBD has also gotten much cheaper to buy over recent years, as consumer interest has increased and more companies have started selling it. The price per mg declined from $1.25 in early 2013 to around 2.5 to 4 cents in late 2016 – up to 50 times less expensive! Throw in the connection with the rise of vaping and the increasingly liberal attitude to marijuana in many states and the booming market makes sense.
So, you’ve decided you’re ready to incorporate CBD (cannabidiol) into your daily routine, for one of a million possible reasons. As you begin to diligently research your initial CBD purchases, you find yourself overwhelmed by the different terms and products for sale. After all, CBD comes in a ja…
“It has definitely not been proven to be by body weight. What has been concluded is that certain ailments require different levels of CBD. In my research I’ve started to put together a list of what has shown to be working for more extreme medical conditions. In general, I would say it’s best to start low and work your way up to what works best for your endocannabinoid system. Everyone is different. There is absolutely no need to jump right to the highest level of CBD you can find.”
Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much research into CBD vaping. Consequently, the information in this area is purely anecdotal. According to an entry at the CBD Oil Review website (a commercial and informational resource on CBD oil), “Based on customer reviews, there are less CBD vape oil effects when being compared to other methods of administering CBD tinctures, capsules and concentrates.” So by the looks of things, it appears that the relaxing effects of CBD – while obtainable through vaping – don’t seem to do the job as well.
