National CBD Day – Why Vapers Can Enjoy Too
Now’s the perfect time to try CBD if you haven’t before!
The 8th of August is National CBD Day, a day where we CBD enthusiasts appreciate CBD and the many ways it can be used and enjoyed. Since becoming legal in 2017, CBD has boomed in popularity across the UK, and the globe, with many people across the EU and various states in the US, adding CBD to their daily lives. It’s also a time for us to help share awareness on what is still quite a hush subject. Many incorrectly think that CBD naturally means Cannabis, or that it isn’t legal, so let’s spread a little CBD knowledge ahead of this day.
What is CBD and is it legal?
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a natural compound extracted from the hemp plant. Hemp and Cannabis plants contain a wide variety of cannabinoids which include CBD. It is a non-psychoactive, non-addictive compound that is often enjoyed by those in the wellness community. CBD is very much legal in the UK but only as long as it does not contain any more than 0.2% of THC. THC is classified as a Class B drug making it illegal for use in the UK.
CBD can be found in a variety of products including CBD oil, CBD topicals, CBD edibles, CBD vapes and more. There are also several types of CBD: CBD Isolate (pure CBD without THC or terpenes), CBD broad-spectrum (CBD with terpenes but no THC) and CBD full-spectrum (CBD, terpenes and THC).
How can you enjoy CBD as a vaper?
CBD vapes have grown increasingly popular and for good reason. For one, vaping is the most effective way to absorb CBD as it bypasses digestion and enters the bloodstream directly through your lungs. This makes it fast acting, benefitting those looking for a quick CBD effect. It’s also being touted as a great alternative to nicotine for vaping as CBD has been so far noted as non-addictive and satisfying.
Disposable CBD vapes are perfect for those who have yet to try CBD but are curious to give it a go. These offer ready-to-vape devices that contain CBD vape juice in a range of flavours including those inspired by Cannabis strains like Granddaddy Purple and Blue Dream.
Devices will likely contain more mg of CBD than is recommended to use daily, as disposable CBD vapes are intended to be used over several days. You’re more likely to use a CBD disposable a lot longer than you would a typical disposable vape. We recommend a couple of puffs a day when you feel you need it, to start with.
Those already invested in CBD can also find bottles of CBD vape juice which can be used with many vape devices. Low wattage devices work better with CBD as you’re less likely to burn and waste your CBD vape juice. For those who are partial to their shortfills, some brands like Cali Greens offer CBD Shots which can be mixed with shortfills instead of nicotine shots.
How can you celebrate National CBD Day?
One of the best ways to help celebrate National CBD Day is to, of course, try it for yourself! If you haven’t already tried CBD, take this time to give it a try and see if you think CBD might be for you. It’s also a great excuse to introduce your friends and family to CBD. Even those who don’t vape can enjoy CBD through topicals like muscle balms, edibles, oral drops and even bath bombs!
The best thing you can do as a CBD advocate is to help spread awareness by relaying your own experiences with CBD. You can also help companies by leaving reviews of their CBD products to help others make more informed choices when buying. At My Vapery we stock one of the UK’s premium CBD brands, Cali Greens who offer a variety of CBD products to cater for everyone. If you haven’t yet tried CBD, make the 8th of August your day to try something new.
