Inhalation is one of the easiest and most effective forms of consuming CBD. When inhaled, CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream faster than other methods like edibles or capsules. For those who don’t like the harsh smoke or odors from the traditional form of smoking CBD, vaping has become a popular alternative.
Vaping allows for CBD to enter the bloodstream through the lungs (like smoking) but is done without the harsh smoke or unflattering odors. To vape, users must use a pen or other hand-held device that turns some of the best CBD products into vapor for inhalation purposes – but everyone wants to know, are vape pens safe?
Understanding Vape Cartridges and Vape Pens
Grassroots Harvest vape cartridges use CBD oil. The various terpenes in the complex blend are combined with MCT oil, which is extracted from coconuts. MCT is one of the safest carrier oils for CBD, so CBD oil cartridges contain it. Some of the Grassroots Harvest cartridges don’t contain carrier oil of any kind and only use CBD and terpene blends.
Vape Essentials Starter Kit
Grassroots Harvest makes it easy to begin a vaping journey with CBD. The vape essentials starter kit offers everything you need to get started – GRH branded rechargeable hemp oil mod and flavored cartridges (Pineapple Express and Jamaican Skunk).
These can also be purchased separately through the website. The safest vape pens on the market are the ones with clear directions and offer a high-quality composition.
Known Effects of Using Safe Vape Pens
Research has been done to understand the effects of using vapor versus traditional smoke inhalation. Understanding certain truths about vaping might make the decision to use it with CBD easier (or harder). Grassroots Harvest believes in full transparency when it comes to the products we offer consumers.
- Vaping is less harmful than smoking but not considered completely safe. There have been lung injuries and even death associated with the use of e-cigarettes and vaping. These e-cigarette and vaping associated lung injuries (EVALI) have prompted an investigation and additional research. The CDC did confirm that the use of Vitamin E oil as a carrier oil was associated with EVALI (which is why GRH uses MCT oil). If you choose to vape, the CDC recommends that people avoid THC-containing cartridges, only purchase through a reputable dealer, and refrain from modifying the device or cartridges.
- Vapor pens side effects depend on the contents of the cartridge. CBD comes in a full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. Depending on the type of CBD used in the cartridge, the outcome of the effects could be different for each individual.
- Safe vape pens do exist. Even though we already talked about EVALI, it is possible to find safe options when it comes to your vape pens. Educating yourself on the different styles and types of vape pens (along with compatibility) is the first line of defense when looking for the safest option.
High-Quality Vape Pens – Is Vaping Safer Than Smoking?
Whether or not vaping is safer than smoking is an open-ended question. No matter your overall view on the subject, we want to clear the air a bit.
Even with the limited amount of research and studies done on vaping and smoking CBD, everyone can agree that there are potential side effects and risks with both. Many of the dangers involved with vaping involve the use of nicotine products, not CBD. All the information that you find, especially in research articles, specifically point to the vaporization of nicotine being harmful.
CBD vape cartridges from GRH do not contain nicotine.
Given the current research on hemp, CBD, and vaping – studies have found that vaping may produce better absorption of the CBD. Without the added chemicals, vaping CBD may be considered safer than vaping traditional nicotine-filled products. Nicotine is addictive, which is why vaping and smoking both correlate to addiction with those trying to kick the habit.
With the ongoing legislation, the State of Texas has tried passing Code 300.104 which bans the sale of CBD vape products. Grassroots Harvest continues to advocate for those Texans who want the right to have all CBD forms available. A judge ruling against the code has pushed the effective date out to February 2021 – making it possible for customers in Texas to purchase vapable CBD products until then.
Before You Decide if Safe Vape Pens Are Right For You
Ultimately, the decision to use CBD in vape form is up to you – a personal decision. Vaping is not for everyone. In fact, some people absolutely abhor it after trying it. For others, the experience is quite different and pleasing. In either circumstance, checking with a medical provider before trying any new CBD product is advisable.
Most vape pens are affordable, making it a worthy investment, even if you don’t end up liking them. You don’t have to worry about the expensive mods to enjoy CBD when you browse the Grassroots Harvest online CBD vaping catalog.
CBD is not regulated by the FDA, although trials have been conducted to help speed up the potential process of FDA regulation. Without this regulation, there are only suggested dosages that can be recommended – but no medical facts warrant them. Grassroots Harvest urges you to reach out to your medical provider to discuss the benefits of using CBD, especially in vape form, before initial use.If you have more questions about what Grassroots Harvest offers and high-quality vape pens or cartridge types, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
