Cannabidiol, CBD, is a natural hemp compound in the cannabis plant. CBD vape oil is also called; CBD vape juice or CBD e-liquid. According to Rosenberg et al. (2015), some benefits of using CBD oil include relieving symptoms associated with anxiety, inflammation, depression, pain, and epilepsy. It can be infused in various products, including Capsules, vape juice, edibles, and CBD tinctures.

CBD Vape oil comes in three forms

  • CBD isolate: It is pure
  • Broad Spectrum: contains CBD with other cannabinoids, except THC.
  • Full Spectrum:  Contains CBD and some THC.

The dosage depends on body weight and tolerance or the symptoms being treated.

Advantages of Using CBD Vape Oil

Relieves pain

Fine & Rosenfeld (2013) explains that CBD has some pain-relieving effects. CBD can regulate appetite, pain sensation, sleep, and immune system response through a person’s endocannabinoid system. The human body produces endocannabinoids neurotransmitters and binds cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system. Chronic pain is reduced by affecting endocannabinoid receptor activity by interacting with neurotransmitters and reducing inflammation.

Reduce Mental Health Disorders

CDB oil has promised to control some mental health disorders like anxiety disorder. Bitencourt & Takahashi (2018) suggest that CBD oil is used to safely treat insomnia and anxiety in children with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Alleviate Certain Cancer Related Symptoms

CBD can help reduce cancer-related side effects symptoms like vomiting, nausea, and pain, according to Good et al. (2019). Approval may be needed to use CBD products in cancer-related cases from the health center.Marinol, a synthetic THC drug, can treat chemotherapy symptoms as it helps in regulating nausea and vomiting.

CBD May Have Neuroprotective Properties

CBD can act on the endocannabinoid system benefiting people with neurological disorders. Sativex has shown to be a safe and effective way to reduce muscle spasticity in people.  In 2018, the FDA satisfied the use of Epidiolex, a prescription of cannabidiol product to treat seizures associated with two severe forms of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome and Lennox- Gastaut syndrome, Pauli et al., (2020).

Benefit To Heart Health

DeCaria & Can explains CBD oil may be beneficial to people with the problem of high blood pressure and a heart condition.


CBD Vape oil is beneficial. However, more research is needed to understand the long-term and short-term effects of CBD Vape oil. Overdosing the product is not advised as it needs a prescription from a licensed center. In combination with THC, CBD may reduce some pain associated with conditions with neurological and cardiac problems. More research is needed to investigate its potential to manage pain.
