No Smoking Day | Smoking OUT – Inhale IN

Time to discover the real difference between , vaping,

and PhenoPen inhaler.

“No Smoking Day” 2022 takes place on 9th March. As part of our vision as a company to increase awareness for a healthier life, we thought you may find this article interesting.

We’re no stranger to the dangers of smoking. Most smokers had their first cigarette under 18, likely due to peer pressure, and haven’t stopped since. The tingling, burning sensation in the throat felt by first-time smokers is the body reacting to foreign and dangerous substances.

Tobacco contains toxic chemicals like nicotine and cyanide, which are lethal in large doses. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are toxins found in coal, oils, and gasoline. PAHs are emitted the combustion process of lighting a cigarette, creating problems associated with secondhand smoke. Short-term effects of smoking might be bad breath, asthma and increased risk of illness and injury. Lung damage, stroke, cancer, gum disease, skin problems, pulmonary and heart disease are some of the debilitating long-term effects of chronic smoking.

E-Cigarettes – What you’re friends don’t know, but

A common misconception is that e-cigarettes are a safe alternative to tobacco and similar to vapes. However, there is very little research on the long-term safety of E-cigarettes. A meta-analysis of 800 studies from the National Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine concluded that e-cigarettes emit several toxic substances such as acetaldehyde, acrolein, and formaldehyde.
These chemicals may cause asthma, coughing, and wheezing in young and increase the risk of serious disease in the long term. Secondhand smoke inhalation from E-cigarettes contains emissions found in engine exhaust and heavy metals. There is also no FDA evidence that using e-cigarettes can help individuals quit smoking.

Vaping – What’s in the extract?

A lot of vape extracts contain additives like PG, VG, and artificial flavors to avoid the bitter taste of hemp. Propylene glycol (PG) is a petroleum-based, sugar alcohol found in a wide range of medical and beauty products, toiletries, and pet food. PG is colorless, odorless, and easily absorbs nicotine and flavoring, making it an ideal base for vape pens. () is the sweet-tasting, oil-based chemical responsible for creating big ‘clouds of smoke’ due to its density.
VG is smoother compared to PG, which leaves a gruff sensation on the throat. PG and VG are typically mixed in equal proportion and enhanced with nicotine, , , and artificial flavorings for consistency and taste. PG and VG are relatively safe but long-term effects are unknown, and other problematic ingredients like Vitamin E acetate have been known to make their way into vape solutions. An alternative, healthier oil called (coconut oil) can be used in place of PG and VG, but these products are harder to find.

Is CBD Safe to Smoke?

Inhalation is the most efficient way to consume CBD since it enters the lungs instantly and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream. CBD alone is not toxic, but lighting a CBD cigarette stimulates combustion and releases PAHs, leading to the same respiratory concerns as smoking tobacco. Vaping is a better alternative to CBD flowers and is also more cost-effective since only a small dose is needed for a powerful effect. But not all vape devices are created equal. The best way to avoid harsh or unfamiliar chemicals is to use 100% pure hemp-based inhalation devices. These contain no PG, VG, solvents, toxic metals, or additives. The CBD is absorbed just as fast without any burning or combustion process.

What is so special about the PhenoPen inhaler?

PhenoPen may be the best solution for those who are looking for a 100% pure hemp extract with zero additives, solvents, and chemicals. Our potent formula contains 75% total cannabinoids and is cost-effective compared to other methods.
How so? Our PhenoPen utilizes an inhalation-by-evaporation method, so unlike cigarettes, the PhenoPen does not require a combustion process. This means no harsh chemicals are released and more CBD is conserved since no burning takes place. The temperature is much lower and targeted to preserve the active ingredients over time and maximize bioavailability, the amount of CBD absorbed by the body. 
The is purer, more durable, and economical since evaporation requires the use of less CBD in order to have the same effect.

Our highly concentrated solution is naturally hemp flavored and since CBD fumes are odorless, the device can be used in enclosed spaces. If you’re looking to finally kick the habit, anxietypaininsomnia, or simply unwind when you get home – this device is for you!

The Verdict

For those wanting to vape medicinal elements of cannabis and hemp, it’s worth looking out for CBD products that are made from 100% pure hemp extract. Avoid using nicotine, tobacco, or any delivery method that includes a burning process. Look out for any additives in your extract to make sure you’re getting the best CBD without any unwanted short or long-term effects.

Are There Risks Associated With Vaping PG and VG?

Time to know what is PG and VG and what you should know about it

THC is the psychoactive compound found in and it can be mixed with vape liquids to be taken in a vaporizer. However, the vape pods which led to the are thought to have contained another additive called Vitamin E acetate. It’s unclear why this substance, which is clearly not safe for vaping, was put into the , although some have suggested that it’s to do with consistency. We’re a closer look at the primary ingredients in vape liquids; namely PG, VG, and MCT.

What is PG?
 
PG stands for Propylene Glycol and it belongs to the alcohol chemical class of additives but is non-intoxicating. PG, like VG, is considered to be sugar alcohol and is found in a range of everyday products. PG is a petroleum-based that has no color or smell. It makes for good nicotine (or THC, CBD) carrier and is associated with the “throat hit” that many vapers enjoy. PG also carries any flavorings in the vape liquid well. PG is found in toothpaste, medical products, pet food, and beauty products.
 
For the time being, no one knows the effect of inhaling PG and certainly not the long-term effects as vaping has only been around for around a decade. Most people who vape PG have no issues with it, however, ’s no away from the fact that PG is a chemical, and is oil-based, and that is certainly a concern for some people.
 

What is VG?

VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin and is a natural chemical extracted from vegetable oils as the name suggests. VG is used in vape liquids to produce dense clouds of vapor and has a sweet taste. VG is also much thicker than PG, making the vape liquid appear more appealing. The other difference between PG and VG is that VG is smoother on the throat and some vapers even vape 100% VG-based liquids. PG and VG are usually mixed in a 1:1 ratio to make vape juice, and then the nicotine, THC, CBD, or flavorings are added into the mix.

Vaping products exist on the market that contains MCT, also known as coconut oil. MCT is rare to find in vaping products but it is available and some people consider it to be safer than PG or VG.

With that said, for those interested in , there are products that contain neither PG, VG, or MCT. For those wanting to vape medicinal elements of cannabis and hemp, it’s worth looking out for vape liquids which are made from 100% and nothing else. PhenoPen cartridges contain only pure hemp  (with various waxes and oils removed), CBD (300mg per cartridge), other minor cannabinoids and terpenes.
 
PhenoPen liquid is rigorously tested by third-party labs and contains no solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, or vitamin E acetate. If you’re interested in vaping potent, high-quality CBD with pure hemp extract and no PG or VG, check out the products page on our website.

New Study Finds Vaping Doesn’t Weaken Immune System Like Smoking

Whit all the negative headlines in the media these days surrounding vaping, a new has concluded something good about vaping, especially when compared to smoking tobacco.

Scientists from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette gave mice a strong dose of Streptococcus pneumoniae – the strain that leads to the majority of cases of pneumonia caught commonly by people in the street or workplace. The crux of the study carried out on the mice was that vaping appeared to have less of a negative effect on the immune system than smoking.

And while smoking tobacco increases the risk of catching pneumonia, vaping does not seem to do the same. While tobacco smoke can activate genes of the bacteria and lead to issues, according to the study, vapor did not.

The recent study on mice looked closely at gene expression patterns in the mice, who were given either E- vapor with nicotine, E-liquid vapor without nicotine, and cigarette smoke. The findings were interesting and quite compelling, even if they were only from mice. The researchers found that E-liquid vapor without nicotine “switched on” just 14 genes.

E-liquid with nicotine activated 264 genes, and smoke from tobacco switched on 982 genes. Of those genes, most were in some way involved in response, and that’s one factor that increases the likelihood of getting an infection.

As Dr. Kulkarni concluded, according to the same report, “Our work is part of a long series of observations coming from a number of research labs trying to define what effects e-cigarette vapor exposure may have on human and to differentiate between the effects of flavoring chemicals and nicotine.”

At the same time, according to Carlos A. Gonzalez, Ph.D., who published the previous research related to smoking and pneumonia, smoke from tobacco causes oxidative stress and alters responses of inflammatory cells.

It was only a matter of time before researchers would set up experiments to check the safety and dangers of vaping as compared to smoking, especially in light of the recent and grave vaping controversy. The latest study is a step in the right direction for vaping, and especially for vapers who have given up smoking cigarettes and were concerned about the recent controversy.

The best advice, for now, is still to stay away from -based E-liquids and cartridges until further clarification is forthcoming from bodies like the and .

Bear in mind that PhenoPen contains no THC and is made from 100% with no other additives, solvents, or heavy metals.

Why Is CBD Content In Vape Liquid So Important?

Do you know how much CBD you’re getting per puff from when you vape? It depends on a number of factors, such as CBD concentration, the volume of inhalation and duration of the puff.  You need to know what you’re vaping if you want to get the dose just right.

CBD has risen to popularity in recent years and is the favored remedy for thousands of people, treating a variety of different ailments. While some people use CBD to deal with of anxiety, others use it to treat pain from inflammation and insomnia. The true therapeutic (and potentially medical) benefits of CBD are still a bit of a mystery as researchers slowly reveal its application for treating many more conditions, including severe and chronic ones.

When purchasing tinctures, vape juices, or edibles, each product (bottle) contains different amounts of CBD in terms of concentration, often referred to as ‘CBD percentage.’ CBD percentage is one of the most vital pieces of the puzzle when it comes to buying the right CBD – whether online or from a retail outlet. There’s overall CBD content which is the total number of milligrams contained in the product. Then, there’s the CBD concentration as a percentage and also the amount of CBD per ‘dose.’

  • CBD Concentration (%) – It’s possible to tell how much CBD there is inside a CBD oil tincture or by the percentage. Taking PhenoPen as an example, the products contain approximately 59.7% of CBD per cartridge. That means that the other 40% is comprised of other minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and in this case.
  • Overall CBD Content (mg) – The overall CBD content in a product you purchase is one of the main things to look out for. Whether it’s Liquid or Oil Tinctures, the total amount of CBD in milligrams (mg) should be displayed prominently on the label of the product or on the website.  With PhenoPen, there’s a potent 300mg overall CBD content per vape cartridge.
  • CBD Per Dose – Without getting caught up or confused by the terminology here, this refers to the dose (amount) of CBD per capsule, per dropper, or per puff, depending on whether it’s a CBD Oil Tincture or CBD Vape Juice. There are roughly 300 puffs per PhenoPen cartridge so that means approximately 1mg of CBD per puff.

In terms of bioavailability, is the most efficient and most effective way of taking the natural plant compound into the system. Bioavailability refers to the amount of active ingredients absorbed into the body, and CBD vape is thought to deliver the most substantial amount, and more than when taken orally in tinctures or edibles. As it stands, upwards of 56% of the active compound enters the system when vaped, as opposed to lower percentages when CBD is ingested. That translates to up to 5 times the amount of CBD when vaped over other delivery methods.

You need to be careful when it comes to buying the right CBD vape product to meet your needs. For example, say you purchase a 30ml bottle of 1000mg CBD concentration vape liquid; that equates to roughly 33mg of CBD per 1ml of vape juice. That is very much on the mild side, and a significant number of puffs would be required by most people to feel any effects. For those seeking more potent relief from their symptoms, there are numerous disposable CBD vape cartridges on the market. Many of these contain 1ml of vape liquid and 250mg of CBD; that equates to 250mg of CBD per 1ml and is significantly stronger than the previous example.

Having explained more in detail the importance of CBD concentrations in vape juice, we want to tell you why PhenoPen is a great choice. For those needing fast and effective relief from conditions like anxiety, insomnia, and inflammation, PhenoPen is a natural choice. As well as containing only 100% Pure Hemp Extract as the carrier liquid, PhenoPen’s proprietary cartridges contain an unprecedented 300mg of CBD per 0.5ml. Apart from the Pure Hemp Extract and high CBD content (59.7%), PhenoPen contains other minor cannabinoids and terpenes from hemp plants. With PhenoPen, you get approximately 1mg of CBD per puff, and that makes it simple and straightforward to titrate with.

If you’re interested in a premium CBD vape experience and are looking for powerful and long-lasting effects, PhenoPen is the right . PhenoPen also represents amazing value for money as one cartridge equates to roughly one ounce (28g) of extracted CBD flowers.

3 Things You Need To Check Before Buying CBD This Christmas

The nascent CBD industry has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years, offering a range of different products for use in the therapeutic application of a variety of conditions. However, with an estimated 12 million different CBD products on the market, buyers need to beware and aware of what they’re purchasing

The fact that the CBD industry is for the time being wholly unregulated isn’t a great thing for consumers. Even some of the most dangerous and damaging human health hazards are brought to consumers in a regulated way. Take tobacco and alcohol as examples of things that cost thousands of lives per year. While both tobacco and alcohol are known to be dangerous and cause no end of troubles for society, they are regulated and can only be sold if they follow industry guidelines. That is not the case for CBD, even though reputable vendors do what they can to be transparent when it comes to things like the source of the CBD and third-party lab-tests.

With Christmas just around the corner and knowing that many people will be buying CBD as gifts for loved ones and friends the festive season, we’re bringing you five timely tips on what to check for before purchasing CBD.

CBD Oil or ?

The first point of order to discuss is the difference between CBD oil tinctures (AKA CBD drops), and CBD vape liquid (AKA CBD Vape Juice). While both contain CBD, they are very different when it comes to both the delivery method and the effects. CBD oil cannot be vaped, and CBD vape liquid cannot be ingested, and it’s important not to get the two mixed up. CBD oil, generally used under the tongue as a tincture, is hemp seed oil-based, and that makes it suitable for consumption and sublingual use.

When CBD oil drops are taken, bear in mind that it takes up to two hours for the active compounds to take effect. That’s due to the long journey the CBD needs to take through the digestive tract and ultimately into the bloodstream. CBD vape liquid is usually based in carrier liquids called PG and VG, but sometimes in liquid (as with PhenoPen CBD). When CBD is vaped in a suitable device and in the right doses, it takes effect immediately and peaks within minutes. This is thanks to the active compounds entering the bloodstream instantly through inhalation into the lungs.

or Hemp-Derived CBD?

When it comes to the source of the CBD, this is a vital factor that needs to be taken into consideration. This surrounds whether the CBD is extracted from cannabis or hemp plants. CBD that comes from cannabis and is only legal in some states (and is illegal federally) is often called “full-spectrum” and contains more than the legal limit of 0.2% – the psychoactive compound in the plant. The overwhelming majority of CBD products, whether in tinctures, vape juices or topicals, and creams, are derived only from hemp plants, which are specially cultivated to contain less than the requisite 0.2% THC.

When it comes to buying CBD to be used as a therapeutic application, you’ll want to ensure you are purchasing CBD extract that’s grown by an approved farm, is organic, and comes from hemp, not from cannabis. As mentioned already, most CBD oils and vape juices will come from hemp and not from cannabis, but it’s something you need to check for in advance just to be on the safe side. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with THC per se, simply that some people want to enjoy the therapeutic of hemp but without the “high” that comes when taking THC.

Reputable Third-Party Lab-Tests

Due to the CBD industry not being regulated and with such a lack of oversight on products, one of the most essential pieces of the puzzle is third-party lab-test results, carried out by a reputable hemp and cannabis testing laboratory. These labs charge CBD manufacturers a premium and test for things like profile, heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, and other chemicals such as Vitamin E acetate. Lab testing is vital when it comes to cosmetics, creams, wellness supplements, and the like to ensure that the final product on the shelf is safe for use and presents no threat to health. This also applies to CBD, whether in vape oil form or CBD drops or topicals.

It’s even better if the lab tests are carried out on a batch-by-batch basis, which the very best CBD manufacturers will do as a matter of course. By checking batch-by-batch, those in the CBD industry avoid doubt when it comes to the safety of their products. It may affect the bottom line for CBD vendors in general, however, when it comes to buying that CBD gift for Christmas, it’s all-important and essential.

Which CBD For Christmas?

If you’re in the market for some CBD this Christmas, whether as a special for yourself or as a gift for a family member or friend, make sure you follow the above advice. Never purchase CBD without lab-tests and correct labeling. Always choose CBD from reputable vendors and never buy it from gas stations or street markets. If immediate and potent relief from symptoms is the order of the day, it’s well worth checking out PhenoPen’s premium CBD vape liquid. With PhenoPen, you get approximately 1mg of CBD, other minor cannabinoids, and per puff.

Here’s What To Do If Vaping CBD Makes You Cough

People around the world and from a range of different walks of life vape for a variety of reasons. While some vape CBD due to its potent effects, others do so because they require immediate from their symptoms

CBD has risen to popularity in recent years as people around the world turn in their droves towards natural, herbal remedies in favor of prescription medication solutions. While many people have been attending doctors’ offices for years, willingly taking whatever patented chemical pill the doctor suggests, some have grown wiser and are opting for natural solutions over drugs. CBD is one such natural solution, and it’s taking the world by storm for some very good reasons.

Why Vape CBD?

There are many different ways to take CBD as it comes in various forms and a variety of delivery methods. There’s full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate, and they all vary in some subtle ways. However, for the purposes of this discussion, many people prefer to vape CBD over other consumption methods such as CBD oil drops or edibles. This is because when CBD is ingested and needs to endure the long and treacherous path through the digestive system, it takes time for the compound to enter the bloodstream and take full effect. Aside from the fact that many people vape CBD as a way of giving up smoking cigarettes, it’s the preferred intake method for many but especially those wanting rapid and potent relief.

Why Can CBD Make You Cough?

CBD isn’t the culprit here when it comes to coughing when vaping. The majority of liquids are full or broad-spectrum, and that means they contain other cannabinoids and from the plant. These terpenes can irritate the throat and lead to coughing and even choking in the worst cases. Another factor here is the fact that CBD, along with terpenes and suspended in a pure hemp liquid or food-grade carriers known as PG and VG, has a distinct flavor, and not everyone’s into it. CBD tastes nutty and earthy, and while it also has a sweetness to it, it can be considered something of an acquired taste. Those new to vaping CBD need to get used to the slight irritation on the throat and the interesting flavor in order to benefit from the therapeutic compound inside.

Minimizing Coughing From Vaping

One way to reduce coughing when vaping CBD is to choose pure hemp (such as ) products that contain only hemp and no additives or other liquid carriers. MCT oil is also considered to be milder on the throat and lungs than PG and VG and is also a good choice for those sensitive to vaping or for CBD beginners. Choosing a clean, third-party lab-tested CBD vape liquid is the best thing to do. You’ll also need to ensure that your vape pen is fully charged and that the tank is filled with your chosen CBD liquid. Having a cold glass of water or a hot tea handy is also recommended as oftentimes irritation, and coughing is caused by a dry throat.

  • Choose pure CBD liquid
  • Secondarily, opt for MCT instead of PG and VG Liquids
  • Vape only reputable, third-party tested CBD 
  • Keep a glass of water or a hot drink handy when vaping

Vaping Pure Hemp CBD Extract

One of the best ways to avoid throat irritation and coughing for some people is by choosing a vape juice that’s made from pure hemp extract. PhenoPen is a premium CBD vaping device that works well for some folks suffering from inflammation, pain, , and anxiety, among other conditions. Some people use PhenoPen CBD as part of a healthy lifestyle regime or just to enjoy their day feeling alert and calm or as a mood booster.PhenoPen contains a proprietary blend of CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes, crafted to target the endocannabinoid system in humans. Moreover, PhenoPen contains 59.7% CBD and 300mg of CBD per 500mg cartridge. That translates to roughly 1mg of finest CBD per puff, and that’s a great way to monitor intake and control dosing.

New FDA Vape Test Results Validate Products Like PhenoPen 

Many people are relieved that the FDA has finally released its preliminary findings regarding devastating lung issues caused by contaminated vape liquid. While the FDA’s findings are worrying, they’re also a small victory for nicotine vapers.

Vapers have had some serious cause for concern in recent months, with sometimes daily news headlines reporting another death caused by . Since the start of 2019, more than 1300 cases of lung issues connected with vaping had been reported in the US. Both the FDA and the (the Centers for Disease Control) have been scrambling for months to get a hold on the situation. At the same time, the whole tragic debacle left many in the vaping industry scratching their heads, trying to fathom what happened and why there have been virtually zero lung issues associated with vaping since it was invented and brought market around a decade ago. With 1300 reported cases within a year and 28 of those ending in fatalities, it was evident to many that traditional nicotine vape liquid was most likely not the culprit here and that THC vapes were to blame.

Tainted Vape Liquid

Of the reported cases, 28 ended fatally, and almost all of those cases have been associated with vape juice containing THC (from ) and not from conventional nicotine products. In vaping talk, vape pods (also known as cartridges) are usually pre-filled or “closed” pod systems that contain vape liquid. Vape liquid (also known as E-juice, E-liquid, and Vape Juice) usually contains liquid carriers called PG and . These carriers are essential as they enable the nicotine or other active compounds to be turned from a liquid into vapor. From the vaping-related fatalities reported, there appears to have been an ingredient called , which was detected during testing. Some assume that this ingredient is the culprit causing all the issues, while others are suggesting that vitamin E acetate may simply be a by-product of THC in vape form.

Black Market Vape Pods

The FDA’s preliminary findings from more than 1000 samples tested in laboratories and collected from 25 states where lung issues or fatalities were reported were interesting. The samples, collected by the FDA from vapers, hospitals, and other institutions, almost exclusively contained THC from cannabis and are most likely from black market vape pods containing a noxious liquid filler. The FDA’s website, where the announcement was made on November 8th, noted that  “The FDA has not found one product or that is involved in all of the cases; however, we do know that THC is present in most of the samples being tested.” That could explain why nicotine vapers seem to be unaffected by the latest crisis and that it’s those interested in (illegally purchased) cannabis products that have been affected.

Preliminary FDA Lab Findings

Here is a simple breakdown of the FDA’s findings from the samples tested according to the details provided by the FDA on their official website:

  • 850 of the samples collected were connected to lung issues in patients
  • 595 of the samples have been tested
  • 419 of the samples were found to contain THC
  • Half of those 419 THC-containing samples were found to contain a poisonous diluent called vitamin E acetate.
  • The percentages of vitamin E acetate found in samples tested ranged from 23% to 88%
  • 22% of the 419 samples tested were found to contain other diluents including MCT (medium-chain triglycerides)
  • At least 300 samples have been linked to more than 50 patients
  • 80% of these patients had associations with THC-based products
  • 74% of the reported cases contained vitamin E acetate

Vaping Safe E-Juice

In light of the FDA’s preliminary findings from samples tested, traditional nicotine vapers are feeling a little more relaxed. At the same time, those who benefit from vaping – a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis and hemp associated with various therapeutic uses – are also feeling vindicated by the FDA’s . As it stands, even though the findings are not yet conclusive, THC vapes are the culprit here, and as long as those are avoided, there should be zero health issues from vaping.

Due to the vaping crisis, even though the scientists knew that our pure hemp CBD vape extract was safe, we wanted to err on the side of caution and carry out substantial lab tests. Our intention here was primarily to ensure that our vape juice contains no vitamin E acetate, heavy metals, or other dangerous chemicals. We were thrilled when the lab tests, carried out by the renowned DB Labs in Las Vegas, came back completely clean. As well as showing a detailed cannabinoid profile, the test results also confirm there are no nasties in PhenoPen extract, and that includes various molds, solvents, and vitamin E acetate.

The new PhenoPen test results carried out at the end of October 2019, offer great peace of mind to existing PhenoPen customers and new ones alike. We instructed DB Labs to carry out special tests for various pesticides and Plant Growth Regulators. We also tested explicitly for vitamin E acetate and were pleased to confirm what we already knew; that PhenoPen’s proprietary 100% pure is safe to vape and poses no threat to health at all.

The Right CBD Concentration

It’s not really possible to define the right CBD concentration as it differs from person to person, on the condition being treated, and a number of other factors. The key is to find the right CBD concentration for yourself and once that’s achieved you can enjoy the full benefits of CBD in the most effective way possible. There a number of factors to take into account when it comes to finding the perfect CBD concentration and these include other factors such as the volume of inhalation, length of puffs, and lung capacity. Based on these factors (and others) one can expect anywhere between 1-3mg of CBD per puff on a premium vaping device (or vape liquid). The more commercial, everyday brands usually come in at less than 0.3mg of CBD per puff.

  • Choosing CBD Vape Liquid – The first step in this process is purchasing CBD Vape Liquid (or pre-filled cartridge/pod systems) with a reasonable CBD concentration inside. As a rough rule of thumb, CBD Vape Liquid is generally sold in 30ml bottles and comes in concentrations ranging from 250mg-1500mg CBD. Beginners are advised to start with lower concentrations, titrating upwards to find their sweet spot. More advanced CBD users will opt for higher concentrations in their vape, in order to achieve more potent effects.
  • Titrating With CBD – While dosing refers to the precise amount of the active compound taken, titration refers to finding the right dose that works to relieve symptoms. When it comes to vaping CBD, titrating to the correct level is fairly straightforward and doesn’t need to take more than just a few days. One simply takes a puff or two of their CBD and then waits for a few minutes to see if it’s worked or if additional puffs are required. As CBD enters the lungs when vaped and therefore makes its way into the bloodstream rapidly, its effects are felt almost instantly and peak within just a few minutes.
  • Dose Accordingly – For anxiety sufferers, life can be treacherous on a daily basis, but that doesn’t mean the anxiety remains constant or at the same levels. As with any ailment or condition, sometimes the anxiety is worse and sometimes it’s not as bad. The exact same principle applies to insomniacs, people suffering from inflammation and those wanting from general aches and pains. If the anxiety isn’t so rampant, perhaps just three puffs from the vape pen will suffice. On a bad day, that number may increase to six or seven, and that’s the beauty of vaping taking CBD in vape form.

Why Vape CBD?

In terms of bioavailability, vaping CBD is the most efficient and most effective way of taking the natural plant compound into the system. Bioavailability refers to the amount of active ingredients absorbed into the body, and CBD vape is thought to deliver the most substantial amount, and more than when taken orally in tinctures or edibles. As it stands, upwards of 56% of the active compound enters the system when vaped, as opposed to lower percentages when CBD is ingested. That translates to up to 5 times the amount of CBD when vaped over other delivery methods.

You need to be careful when it comes to buying the right CBD vape product to meet your needs. For example, say you purchase a 30ml bottle of 1000mg CBD concentration vape liquid; that equates to roughly 33mg of CBD per 1ml of vape juice. That is very much on the mild side, and a significant number of puffs would be required by most people to feel any effects. For those seeking more potent relief from their symptoms, there are numerous disposable CBD vape cartridges on the market. Many of these contain 1ml of vape liquid and 250mg of CBD; that equates to 250mg of CBD per 1ml and is significantly stronger than the previous example.

As well as containing only 100% Pure Extract as the carrier liquid, PhenoPen’s proprietary cartridges contain an unprecedented 300mg of CBD per 0.5ml.
