Cloud chasers – folks that vape – have changed the way people look at smoking over the last five years, and we’re not just talking about cigarettes (though plenty of folks use e-cigs rather than traditional smokes for sure).
Vaping has gotten to the point where even those that don’t indulge know exactly what those crazy kids with little pens in their mouths are doing and recognize that the fluffy clouds those pens produce aren’t smoke, but instead vapor from a much more efficient combustion system.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that technology first created to replace traditional cigarettes (the original electronic cigarettes) would eventually be co-opted by those that like a little bit of cannabis now and again, but no one saw just how much of a revolutionary new step forward this was going to be.
But here we are today and the impact of vaping is undeniable.
To learn a little bit more about what vaping is and why so many choose to vape CBD oil, we put together this quick guide.
Let’s dive right in!
What Exactly Happens Inside a Vaporizer?
There are plenty of different reasons that vaping CBD oil has become so popular, but the number one reason has to be the fact that many consider this alternative to be much healthier and a lot safer than smoking, eliminating the carcinogens that are always created when you burn something – anything – and then inhale the smoke.
Instead of lighting your tobacco or cannabis on fire directly, vaporizers instead use either a convection or conduction heating element to more accurately and evenly heat your “material” in a specially designed chamber – and only to the exact vaporization point, a temperature always colder than the point of combustion.
This results in a much cleaner breakdown of your material – your tobacco, your nicotine, your cannabis, or your CBD oil as the case may be – which is why you see such a thick and luscious cloud of vapor as opposed to wispy clouds of smoke.
Controlling the combustion is the number one job of these vape pen options and many consider the vapor cloud to be a lot more enjoyable and a lot less harsh than traditional smoke, too.
Why Vape CBD Oil?
Whether you’re going to be vaping CBD oil with the help of a “Pull to Vape”, a box mod, or a nice set of ceramic the other pretty good you’re going to make the jump to vaporizing your CBD oil because you want more control, you want more convenience, and you want a safer, cleaner, and healthier alternative.
With traditional vape pens, those pull to vape options we highlighted earlier, all you have to do is slap a CBD oil cartridge into the pen itself and you are off to the races. The heating element triggers just as soon as you start to inhale, maintaining that control level of vaporization for as long as you inhale and then shutting things down the moment that you stop.
These are super-efficient pens with no button necessary for the operation and should help you stretch out your supply of high-quality CBD oil to anywhere between 100 and 150 hits per individual cartridge. At the same time, these units aren’t quite as capable of producing thick and luscious clouds of vapor the way that a box mod or ceramic set up can – so you want to look into those, too if you’ve got the budget.
Vaping CBD oil with a box mod is maybe the most popular method right now, and it’s easy to see why. You get dramatically extended battery life, extra power to vaporize more efficiently and more consistently, and a level of customization over your vaping experience you won’t get anywhere else.
These units are always a little bit larger than your traditional pen, but they can accommodate larger barrels of CBD oil and have bigger batteries. On top of that, some units include dual CBD oil reservoirs that let you mix and match your favorite flavors, giving you an unparalleled level of control over your CBD enjoyment experience.
Ceramics are quickly gaining in popularity and refer to any of the new vaporizers that use ceramic coating on the heating coils of the atomizer itself. Ceramics self cleans themselves, deliver a much cleaner and more consistent flavor with every pull, and practically guarantee that you never again have to worry about any burnt or acidic flavors coming through when you vape.
At the end of the day, the type of vaporizer you choose for vaping CBD oil is going to be uniquely personal. You might choose an open-top or closed system vaporizer, depending on the kind of CBD oil you want to vape, and you might choose from any of the technologies we listed above to dial in the experience you are after.
No matter how you choose to vape CBD oil, with this delivery mechanism you’re going to allow for upwards of four times as much CBD to enter directly into your system – and you’re going to find that it is absorbed a lot faster and has the maximum level of bioavailability, too.
That all means that you’re going to have to vape less CBD oil to get the same or better results, helping you save a little bit of money, stretching out your supply of CBD oil further, and practically guaranteeing that you get the most bang for your buck with this substance.
