Sure, you’ve probably heard of a chemical called THC, which is the ingredient in marijuana that is most well known for getting users “high”. But recently, attention has shifted to another, completely different compound in marijuana called CBD, and for good reason.
Because while doctors can’t seem to look past certain side effects of THC, CBD doesn’t present any of those problems, and as a matter of fact, evidence of CBD’s health, performance and cognitive enhancing benefits is instead growing by leaps and bounds.
So what is CBD, exactly?
CBD is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied.
But unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. It is completely non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-altering effects of THC. But unlike THC, CBD does not interfere with your psychomotor and psychological functions, and it is extremely well tolerated by users of all ages and experiences, is completely safe, even at high doses, and possesses a huge host of beneficial characteristics that can help your body with everything from sleep to focus to fat loss to hormone balance to fighting inflammation and beyond.
According to a comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following powerful properties:
-Antiemetic (reduces nausea and vomiting)…
-Anticonvulsant (suppresses seizure activity)…
-Antipsychotic (combats psychosis disorders)…
-Anti-inflammatory (combats inflammatory disorders)…
-Anti-oxidant (combats neurodegenerative disorders)…
-Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer (combats tumor and cancer cells)…
-Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant (combats anxiety and depression disorders)…
Because of these CBD properties, a pharmaceutical version of CBD was recently developed by a drug company based in the UK called GW Pharmaceuticals, who is now funding clinical trials on CBD as a treatment for schizophrenia and other types of epilepsy. In addition, a team of researchers at the California Pacific Medical Center has stated that they hope to begin trials on CBD as a cancer therapy.
In addition to all these benefits, you can click here to read a comprehensive article Ben Greenfield has written on the dizzying array of performance, hormonal, sleep, appetite control and even fat loss benefits of CBD.
Interestingly, if you’re already using “weed” or some other form of THC, CBD actually reduces the negative effects of THC, and seems to offer natural protection against the marijuana high and some of the other unpleasant phenomenon associated with marijuana use. Numerous studies suggest that CBD acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment, psychoactivity and paranoia.
And perhaps the best part is that CBD derived from organic, industrial hemp is 100% legal for anyone to use, including children, athletes both in and out of competition and anyone, anywhere in the world!
What Is Vaping?
Vaporizing or “vaping” is simply defined as the act of inhaling water vapor through a personal vaporizer, and is a very popular and fast deliver mechanism for either CBD, THC, or both. Unlike smoking, when you vape there is no bad smell and no bad breath, no cigarette burns, no dirty ashtrays, and far less likelihood of getting cancer or any other smoking-affiliated illnesses – you get the drift.
Vaping involves the use of a vaporizer. The vaping process involves applying heat to a liquid, which then generates a vapor. The user, called a vaper, then gets a “hit” by inhaling this vapor. Vape pens or vaporizers work by using a battery to heat a coil up that then volatilizes the oil into tiny airborne droplets that form the water-based aerosol we call “vapor.”
Vaping allows near instant delivery and instant experience of all the benefits of a compound, without producing thick, clinging smoke the same way combustion does, and without requiring tar or other chemicals present – annoying chemicals that linger and cling to your clothes and other items, and cause damage to your body. The water vapor actually disperses within a few seconds of being exhaled, and only those in close proximity briefly even smell it. You don’t have to worry about your home and clothing smelling of smoke, and second, it adds an element of “stealth” as the vapor does not travel far before it disappears, this can be beneficial if you don’t want to draw attention to yourself.
When you are drawing the CBD’s into your mouth and lungs with the vapor, you experience almost immediate absorption into your bloodstream because the thin membranes of the lungs soak up the CBD right away. So technically, vaping your CBD is the fastest method of delivery into the system if you want to get all of the benefits of CBD right away.
CBD vape oil is simply a concentrated form of cannabidiol in a liquid form, heated and inhaled through a vaporizer. This vape oil is typically purchased by a user as a one-time use “cartridge” for a vape pen, is made from the stalks and stems of hemp plants and contains an enormous variety of active cannabinoids and terpenes, without the intoxicating effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Various natural flavoring agents can even be added to enhance the vaping taste and to subsequently enhance the vaping experience.
You absorb hemp-based CBD almost immediately when vaporizing, which is why many medicines are available in vape formulations. Vaping is not addictive or habit forming, and you cannot get high or psychoactive from vaping a hemp-based CBD oil.
This means that unlike the use of marijuana, when you vape CBD, you experience NO munchies, NO paranoia, NO cottonmouth, and NO red eyes – just the pure health, physical and mental performance effects that CBD can provide.
Vaping CBD’s has another benefit in that it allows you to determine your dose with extreme precision and accuracy. So you can give yourself a little dose with one or two inhalations, or you can give yourself more based on the support you desire but increasing your inhalations.
So between fast absorption and controlled dosing, vape is an increasingly popular option for people to get their CBD’s. Because of all these vaping benefits, and because it is the most effective way to absorb CBD’s
as fast as possible (through your lungs), the process of vaporizing seems to have caught on like wildfire, and hundreds of thousands of people now walk around with “vape pens” in their pockets and purses.
But there is big, big problem with vaporizers…
The Problem With Vaporizers
There are increasing concerns regarding the creation of carcinogens and other dangerous toxins due to the rapid heating of various substances by the battery-operated heating mechanism in most vaporizers (remember, these are also known as “vape-pens” or “vapes”).
But just like any product we buy to ingest into our bodies, companies will do just about anything to have these compounds appeal to our taste and experience as much as possible.
Problem is, when it comes to vape products, there are two main ingredients that most companies will add that you must absolutely avoid and not ingest into your body.
The first such compound is “diacetyl”, a flavoring chemical linked to cases of severe respiratory disease. Diacetyl has been found in more than 75% of vaporizers, flavored electronic cigarettes and refill liquids tested by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the flavoring industry have warned workers about diacetyl because of the association between inhaling this chemical and the debilitating respiratory disease bronchiolitis obliterans (termed “Popcorn Lung” because it first appeared in workers who inhaled artificial butter flavor in microwave popcorn processing facilities).
“Recognition of the hazards associated with inhaling flavoring chemicals started with ‘Popcorn Lung’ over a decade ago. However, diacetyl and other related flavoring chemicals are used in many other flavors beyond butter-flavored popcorn, including fruit flavors, alcohol flavors, and, we learned in our study, candy flavored e-cigarettes,” said lead author Joseph Allen, assistant professor of exposure assessment science.
These same dangerous diacetyl chemicals can be found in many, many vape products, including, unfortunately, even hemp-based CBD products from many companies.
There has also been a raised concern of the effects and hidden dangers of inhaling another chemical called propylene glycol, which is widely used to mix with vape oil.
Propylene glycol is a thinning compound and is also the primary ingredient in a majority of nicotine-infused e-cigarette solutions. But high temperatures, propylene glycol converts into toxic nanoparticles which are known for causing damage to respiratory organs and said to cause cancer, asthma, and other illnesses.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has considered propylene glycol safe for ingestion and for topical application, and recognized it as “safe” when used as a food additive. This is determined and classified as “safe” based on the low oral toxicity, but never based on heating and inhaling propylene glycol into the lungs. Once you heat it, things change dramatically.
Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are the most common solvents used in e-cigarettes (ECs) and vape pens. It has been shown that at high temperatures both VG and PG undergo decomposition to low molecular carbonyl compounds, including the carcinogens: formaldehyde and acetaldehyde.
Why do these dangerous compounds exist in vaporizers?
Frankly, because vaping has become so popular, people are looking to the vape industry as the next big gold rush within the tobacco and cannabis industries, and the vape industry knows what sells: flavor and taste and sweetness, even if artificial and chemical-filled.
But the bottom line is this: stay away from any CBD product that is NOT 100% oil, free from PG, VG and Diacetyl. You need to care for your body and mind, and not turn it into a toxic waste dump. This is not something to just pass off and must be considered for the safety of your health and well-being.
So you might be asking yourself, is it even worth it to risk getting a CBD oil vape product with these oils and chemicals, and are there any products that do NOT have these dangerous additives?
