Denver Dispensary Shares 4 Key Things You Need to Know About Vaping CBD

August 31, 2021

CBD is one of the most popular items on the market right now. It provides many benefits and can be used safely without forcing you to worry about getting high. While you can take it topically or enjoy a CBD-infused edible, it’s also easy to vape! But before you pick up your first CBD vape cartridge from your Denver weed shop, make sure you know what to expect. Here are a few must-know tidbits.

You’ll Still Have to Choose the Right Type

CBD cartridges are available in the same varieties as the tinctures you have access to at your dispensary. This means you’ll need to choose between full-spectrum, isolate, and broad-spectrum CBD. The type you choose is largely personal preference. However, most people prefer full-spectrum options. These cartridges have more of the beneficial cannabinoids that help your body get the most out of CBD. Keep in mind that isolate and broad-spectrum will still be effective.

It’s Best to Avoid Cartridges Purchased Outside the Dispensary

You’ve likely heard about the vaping lung disease going around. Though the exact cause of the disease has yet to be determined, most cases have one thing in common: the cartridges were purchased on the street or online from unverified sources. These cartridges aren’t certified to have the ingredients mentioned on the packaging and if you’re not sure what you’re inhaling, you’re putting your health at risk. 

Cartridges purchased at local dispensaries have been carefully selected for their quality manufacturing and pure ingredients. Best of all, the manufacturers behind the products are licensed and monitored by local governments to make sure they’re in full compliance with the production line. 

Understand the Potency

CBD products, like both medical and recreational marijuana products, are labeled for potency. The higher the number on the label, the more CBD you’ll get in each dose. But remember, the number on the package isn’t the amount of CBD you’ll get in every dose—it’s the amount contained in the entire product. That said, the highest potency products may not be the ones you enjoy using most. Experiment with different types of CBD vapes and start using the ones you respond best to. There’s no right or wrong answer here. 

Vapes Are the Easiest Way to Get Potent CBD

Vaping CBD isn’t the only way to get the beneficial cannabinoids you’re looking for. But it is one of the best ways to do it. Since you’re inhaling the concentrate, your body gets more out of each dose. You’re not losing CBD to your digestive tract or accidentally cooking off its potency by adding tincture to hot tea. That said, it can cause some throat and lung irritation if you have pre-existing upper respiratory conditions like asthma or allergies. If you’re interested in trying it, start with the smallest dose possible and make sure you feel good after using it.
