CBD or cannabidiol raises many questions. This substance, which comes from the cannabis plant, can be consumed in different ways. Among the most popular forms of cannabidiol products today are e-liquids for electronic cigarettes. Overview of this product offered by some professionals.
The CBD vape, what is it?
For several years, the electronic cigarette has been used by smokers in many countries. Intended for recreational use, the e-cigarette is considered an aid in reducing tobacco consumption for regular smokers. According to the British public health agency, smoking an electronic cigarette is about 95% less harmful than smoking a traditional cigarette. However, the electronic cigarette is still the subject of numerous studies by scientists to elucidate certain facts.
With the rise of cannabidiol in many European countries, more and more entrepreneurs have embarked on the design of e-liquid based on CBD. Like other products derived from hemp marketed, the quantity of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC must not exceed the threshold authorized by the legislation in force in the field, i.e. 0.02%. In some countries, such as Switzerland, the maximum THC level can be up to 1%. Vaping CBD therefore does not get you “high”. Here are some insights on CBD e-liquids.
Just like other products derived from hemp, CBD e-liquids do not have any psychic effects. Unlike THC, this molecule also derived from hemp has no psychoactive effect. Although these two cannabinoids are extracted from the same plant, one is tolerated, the other not. For information, tetrahydrocannabinol is part of the category of narcotics in France. This is the main reason for the ban on consuming it on national soil for recreational use. E-liquids have many components.
Cannabidiol is also a substance that integrates rather well with other components, such as propylene glycol, or even vegetable glycerin present in some e-liquids. Today, more and more specialists are offering this type of CBD product certified without THC. This is an alternative used by a large number of individuals who wish to decrease the consumption of nicotine. Overall, the liquids designed for electronic cigarettes based on cannabidiol are subjected to the same manufacturing process as other conventional e-liquids.
The effects of CBD on the body
While there are many ways to consume this cannabinoid naturally found in the cannabis plant, the effects of CBD remain the same. From one form to another, the effects felt may take more or less time to be felt by the consumer. Vaping cannabidiol with an e-liquid has thus become a new way of consuming this molecule. Much research carried out by scientists has highlighted the effects of CBD on the human body. Here is some knowledge on the subject:
- Cannabidiol or CBD can affect the level of anandamide in the body. It is a molecule present in certain products such as chocolate. The latter indeed plays an important role in the feeling of reward and satisfaction of the consumer.
- This cannabinoid contains in particular anxiolytic properties to fight against a state of stress or generalized anxiety. This molecule would soothe people prone to anxiety attacks.
- Other studies carried out in the past have also been able to shed light on the antipsychotic effects of cannabidiol. This substance is the subject of various scientific programs with therapeutic aims to relieve patients suffering from pathologies such as schizophrenia or epilepsy.
- Mild analgesic properties are also naturally present in cannabidiol. These are indicated to alleviate the unpleasant effects associated with pain of inflammatory types.
In addition, a large number of researchers around the world have also mentioned that CBD would reduce the psychotropic effects caused by the consumption of THC. In short, you should know that this molecule is still the subject of much scientific research around the world. Taking CBD may pose a risk of drowsiness for some people. Among the other side effects linked to the consumption of this cannabinoid, a dry mouth is also listed. To date, no serious side effects have been reported by researchers.
