HOW MANY HITS DO YOU TAKE ON A CBD PEN

HOW MANY HITS DO YOU TAKE ON A CBD PEN?

A vape pen is an electronic device that burns e-juice and converts it into vapor. Cannabidiol (CBD), an active cannabis compound, comes in a wide product range. Vaping cannabidiol (CBD) is an effective and delicious experience, especially for beginners. Consumers should understand precisely the amount in each vaporizer and the number of hits to avoid overdosing. In the current article, we discuss the factors determining the number of hits in CBD vape pens.

A vape pen is an electronic device that burns e-juice and converts it into vapor. Cannabidiol (CBD), an active cannabis compound, comes in a wide product range. The products are consumed through various methods including but not limited to edibles, topicals and vapes. Cannabidiol pens have become most prioritized, especially in teens and young adolescents. The method delivers instant results because the vapor enters the bloodstream directly. You should know precisely the amount of your CBD pen and the number of hits needed to yield the desired effects before using the vapes.

WHAT IS CBD VAPE?

Vapes are cannabidiol cartridges and atomizers combined with disposable concentrate chambers that link with batteries to dispense CBD through inhalation. Also, the cannabidiol vaper’s battery provides atomizers (cartridges) with the power required to transform oily cannabidiol concentrate into vapor. The external cartridge constituents enable the vapor emanating from an atomizer to penetrate the lungs when inhaling. Cannabidiol vapes are available in various types. Some key things to consider when purchasing cannabidiol vapes include added base oils, ingredients, CBD type, strain-specific terpenes, and other additives such as thickeners and flavorings. The premium cannabidiol vapes are natural. They involve full-spectrum, and carbon dioxide extracted from hemp distillate. CBD vape pens come in different types, including disposable, refillable, and pods. They have unique advantages and disadvantages. For instance, disposables are cheap, come pre-filled and charged, although used once. On the other hand, vapes manufactured with plastics might pollute the environment.

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE WHEN VAPING CBD?

It hits faster and harder when consumers vaporize cannabidiol instead of oral ingestion. Nevertheless, the effects persist for about 60 to 90 minutes. This duration is half of cannabinoid products consumed orally. Vaping CBD produces similar effects, tastes, and smells for people who have never vaped or smoked cannabis. Emoto et al. (2020) stated that vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cause intoxicating effects. Thus, understanding your vape oil’s ingredients is paramount to achieving desired results.

HOW TO DOSE CANNABIDIOL VAPE

UNDERSTAND THE CANNABIDIOL CONTENT IN YOUR VAPE PRODUCTS

Different variables and extraction technique significantly impacts the cannabidiol concentrate composition from 45 to 90 percent cannabidiol. According to Allison et al. (2001), natural extracts have a decent potency. However, artificial cannabidiol extracts have poor-quality hemp with low potent vapes. Determine the accurate cannabidiol amount per hit. After this, you can determine the CBD milligrams you intend to inhale daily. The vape’s potency differs with manufacturers. Therefore, discover the overall cannabidiol amount present in the vape cartridge.

PULMONARY ADMINISTRATION METHOD AND BIOAVAILABILITY

Bioavailability explains the ingested compound that enters the human system. The pulmonary administration method entails taking substances through the lungs. Administering CBD through the lungs effectively delivers cannabidiol into your bloodstream. Moltke & Hindocha (2021) observed that vaped CBD’s bioavailability is three to five times greater than oral ingestion. Bioavailability affects the dosage accuracy because vaped cannabinoid has a higher potency.

HARDWARE AND HEAT                      

Vape batteries are modified to burn cannabidiol oil to various temperatures. Consuming a standard hit from one pen may offer a higher dose than a regular hit. One blocked airway changes the CBD amount an individual inhales with every hit on the vape cartridge. The heat supplied in vaporizing cannabidiol concentrate affects the cannabidiol amount generated per hit. Also, the specific hardware uniqueness impacts the cannabidiol dosing calculations.

HOW LONG DOES CBD VAPE LAST?

The above factors are crucial when determining the cannabinoid amount to vaporize per hit. One drawback of vaping cannabidiol is that the effects remain for a short period. According to Ashton, vaping cannabidiol effects last for approximately sixty to ninety minutes. About one hour after your last CBD vape hit, the effects disappear. However, certain pleasing post-effects might manifest. The sixty to ninety-minute effects are essential in determining the accurate cannabidiol vape needed to obtain the desired effects. 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD CONSUMERS VAPE CANNABIDIOL DURING THE DAYTIME?

Normal adults stay awake for about 16 hours daily. This gives around ten ideal cannabidiol vape sessions, if you intend to maintain the hemp experience continuously. People who prefer taking some vapor vacation may vape approximately 5 times daily.

CONCLUSION

A vape pen is an electronic device that burns e-juice and converts it into vapor. Such vaporizers generate vapor containing high cannabidiol contents. They are cannabidiol vape cartridges and atomizers combined with disposable concentrate chambers that link with batteries through common threaded ports to dispense CBD oil into the lungs. The external cartridge constituents enable the vapor emanating from an atomizer to penetrate the lungs during inhalation. Vaping delivers the cannabidiol effects faster but persists for about 60 to 90 minutes. Ensure you know the overall cannabidiol amount in the vape cartridge to decide the number of hits to inhale. While CBD is generally tolerated in the body, improper vaping could lead to lung irritations.
