CBD in e-cigarettes refers to electronic cigarettes containing CBD (Cannabidiol). CBD is a compound known as a cannabinoid extracted from the cannabis (marijuana) plant, and it is known for its relaxing, health, and beauty benefits.

There are some who believe that CBD is addictive, but in December 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported in a document that “there is no potential for abuse or harm from CBD.”
What are the Pros and Cons of CBD E-cigarettes?
Let’s discuss the advantages and disadvantages of consuming CBD through e-cigarettes (CBD vaping) compared to other CBD methods like sublingual intake and CBD edibles. First, take a look at the quick reference chart below.
|CBD Oil (Sublingual)
|Time to Take Effect
|Within 5 minutes
|Within 30 minutes
|Within 2 hours
|Time to Peak Effect
|About 20 minutes
|About 1 hour
|Duration of Effect
As you can see from the chart, the characteristic of CBD in e-cigarettes (CBD Vape) is the quick onset of effects. Therefore, if you want to relax quickly, CBD in e-cigarettes is recommended.
However, the downside is that the duration of CBD effects is the shortest, so the effects wear off quickly therefore, if you want the effects of CBD to appear quickly and last longer, a combination of “CBD in e-cigarettes + CBD Edibles” is recommended.
Incidentally, the sublingual intake of CBD oil offers the best absorption rate in the body, so in terms of cost-effectiveness, CBD oil (sublingual intake) is actually the best option. However, since it’s oil, some might be concerned about the calories, or find the taste of CBD oil a bit bitter. In that case, CBD vape liquids, which are available in delicious flavors, are a good choice for those who dislike the taste of CBD oil.
Is it Dangerous to Vape CBD?
There is no particular issue with CBD liquids that do not use Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in their vape liquid components.
How Much CBD Should You Vape?
It varies from person to person, but inhaling 2-3 times usually shows the effects of CBD in about 5 minutes. If you still feel it’s not enough, you can adjust by inhaling another 2-3 times.
CBD or CBN: Which is Better?
Each has different effects, so it’s not straightforward to say which is better. However, consuming both can lead to an entourage effect (synergistic effect), so taking both CBD and CBN together can enhance the overall effect.
