How to Vape CBD Oil?

First, it’s crucial to note that CBD oil cannot be vaped. People mean CBD vape carts or e-liquids when they say ‘vaping CBD oil’. CBD vape carts and e-liquids are made for inhalation. Vaping pure CBD oil can lead to significant health issues1S. Sung, H. D. Tazelaar, J. P. Crapanzano, A. Nassar, and A. Saqi, “Adult exogenous lipoid pneumonia: A rare and underrecognized entity in cytology – A case series,” in Cytojournal, vol. 15, 2018. [Online]. Available: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6069323/.


  • Vaping CBD vs. CBD Oil: Not all CBD products are made for vaping. Ensure you’re using CBD vape juice, not CBD oil, to prevent health risks.
  • Safety First: While CBD is generally safe, it’s crucial to source products from reputable brands with third-party testing to ensure quality and safety.
  • Legal Landscape: CBD’s legal status varies globally. Always be informed about local regulations, especially when traveling.
  • Potential Benefits & Side Effects: Many users find relief in vaping CBD for ailments like anxiety and sleep issues. Always consult with healthcare professionals before taking CBD.


CBD vape juice or CBD vape oil is made for vaping and is not the same as oil-based CBD tinctures or CBD oil which are NOT suitable for inhalation.

CBD Oil vs CBD Vape Juice: What’s the Difference?

CBD oil is cannabidiol mixed with liquids like coconut or olive oil, often taken orally.

CBD oil is not suitable for vaping; doing so can be harmful2S. Sung, H. D. Tazelaar, J. P. Crapanzano, A. Nassar, and A. Saqi, “Adult exogenous lipoid pneumonia: A rare and underrecognized entity in cytology – A case series,” in Cytojournal, vol. 15, 2018. [Online]. Available: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6069323/

Make sure you are aware of the difference between CBD oil (sometimes called CBD tincture) and CBD vape juice. 

Ensure CBD products are labeled for ingestion or vaping. If unsure, it’s best to avoid the product.

There are two main methods of vaping CBD – CBD Vape Juice and CBD cartridges.

CBD Vape juice

CBD vape juice is like regular e-liquid and is vaped in the same way. CBD vape juice has:

  • A base of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine
  • CBD
  • Maybe some flavorings
  • Nothing else

CBD vape juice works with most regular vape devices. The way to vape it is the same. To use CBD vape juice, fill your tank or atomizer and vape as with any e-liquid.

CBD Cartridges

CBD cartridges are prefilled with vape juice and designed for vape pens with a 510 thread.

These pre-filled CBD cartridges are designed to be used and disposed of when depleted.

You can also get disposable CBD vape pens that are prefilled with CBD. After use, you throw away the whole pen, not just the cartridge.

How Much CBD Should I Vape?

Determining your CBD dosage can be hard because of many factors:

  • Age
  • Weight and height
  • Metabolism
  • Tolerance levels
  • Overall health
  • Gender
  • The CBD concentration in the product you’re using

CBD dosage varies among individuals. Always start low, monitor effects, and adjust as needed.

  • Observe and adjust after taking your initial dose.
  • Wait at least a few hours before redosing.
  • Increase the dosage by 2-5mg each time.
  • Pay close attention to how you feel after each dose.
  • Some effects of CBD can be subtle.
  • Monitoring your symptoms or even keeping a journal can be beneficial.

Many people take 10 to 30mg of CBD daily for different needs. But it’s vital to find your best dose. Some with serious conditions take 200-1000 mg daily. A usual CBD cartridge with 100mg of CBD gives 1 to 2 mg per puff. But a CBD vape pen might give more CBD each puff.

Vaping too much CBD rarely causes bad side effects. But some might feel tired, sick, or have a bad stomach. If so, think about taking less. In short, be patient. Change your CBD dose based on how you feel and how it helps your symptoms.

When it comes to choosing your CBD vape, there are several factors to consider to ensure you get the best experience and benefits.

How to Choose Your CBD Vape

Picking the right vape is tough with so many options. 

While some CBD vapes are easy, some vape devices have advanced tech and suit those who are experienced. 

The easiest vapes to use are pods, cartridges, and disposables. But refillable vapes, while advanced, save you money.

1. Disposable CBD Vape Pens

For a cheap and simple way to vape CBD oil, try disposable CBD vape pens. They’re light pens filled with CBD vape juice. But if you vape a lot, these aren’t great. They last only a few hundred puffs. Refillable CBD vape pens might save you more money.

2. CBD Oil Cartridges

A CBD oil cartridge is a small vape tank with CBD vape juice already in it. It will connect to a 510 thread battery or a vape pen. These cartridges usually hold 0.5 to 1ml of CBD vape juice. They are the second easiest way to vape CBD.

3. CBD Pods

CBD pods are like CBD oil cartridges but only for particular devices. They also come pre-filled. If you have a JUUL pod system, you can easily switch between nicotine and CBD with a JUUL-friendly CBD pod.

4. Refillable CBD Vape Pens

For an easy choice, think about refillable CBD vape pens. They save money and give better flavor than disposables. But, they need some care. It’s best to try them once you know more about vaping.

5. Pod Vapes

Pod vapes are excellent if you’re looking for a refillable option. But with many types around, you’ll need to pick one that can manage thick e-liquids.

How to Vape CBD Oil?

How to Vape CBD Oil

Once you choose to vape CBD, follow these steps. 

Start by reading the user manual to know your device. Some vapes have unique features, so learn them. 

But if you use a disposable CBD vape pen, there’s little to learn other than inhale.

If you’re already a vaper, using CBD e-juice is easy. Vaping CBD oil is essentially the same process as vaping nicotine-based e-juice.

How to Use a Disposable CBD Vape Pen

  • Remove the vape pen from its packaging.
  • If there’s a seal or protective cap, take it off.
  • Place the mouthpiece of the vape pen to your lips.
  • Inhale softly to start the airflow. Some pens activate by inhaling, without any buttons.
  • Take short puffs to begin, gauging the CBD’s strength.
  • Wait 5 to 10 minutes between puffs to see how it affects you.
  • Increase the length of your puffs if you’re comfortable with the effects.
  • Monitor the pen’s battery life, if indicated. Some pens have a light that dims as the battery runs out.
  • Dispose of the pen responsibly when it’s empty or the battery is depleted.

How to Use a CBD Oil Cartridge

  • Connect the CBD cartridge to your 510 vape battery.
  • If there’s a power button, click it five times.
  • Press the button and take small inhales.
  • Wait 5 to 10 minutes between puffs to get the right dose.
  • If you’re okay with how it feels, try longer inhales.

How to Use a CBD Pod

  • Use a pre-filled CBD pod or fill one with your CBD vape juice.
  • Attach your CBD pod to the pod device.
  • Activate the device and start with small puffs.
  • Pause 5 to 10 minutes between puffs to check the CBD’s strength.
  • Begin slowly and increase your dose as needed.
  • If you feel good, take longer and more often.

How to Use a CBD Vape Pen

  • Load your vape pen with CBD e-juice.
  • Prime your coil for the best results.
  • Let the coil soak for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Click the power button about five times to turn on the vape pen.
  • Adjust the airflow if your pen allows it.
  • As you inhale, press the button. 
  • See how the CBD feels and wait 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Start slow and find your best dose.
  • Keep your vape tank clean for best performance.

The Benefits of Vaping CBD

Vaping CBD can help with many health issues, both in the body and mind. Here’s a clear summary:

  • Quitting Smoking: CBD vaping can be a swap for regular smoking. A 2013 study from University College London3G. Cossu et al., “Cannabidiol reduces cigarette consumption in tobacco smokers: Preliminary findings,” in Addictive Behaviors, vol. 38, no. 9, pp. 2433-2436, Sep. 2013. [Online]. Available: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.addbeh.2013.03.011 found people who vaped CBD smoked about 40% less tobacco, showing it might help quit smoking.
  • Mental Health:
    • Mood and Anxiety: CBD helps the body’s endocannabinoid system which manages stress and mood. It can aid with general anxiety, panic attacks, and social fears4E. M. Blessing, M. M. Steenkamp, J. Manzanares, and C. R. Marmar, “Cannabidiol as a Potential Treatment for Anxiety Disorders,” in Neurotherapeutics, vol. 12, no. 4, pp. 825–836, Oct. 2015. [Online]. Available: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4604171/.
    • Brain Chemicals: CBD changes serotonin and dopamine in the brain, which control mood and fear.
    • Sleep: CBD can help set the body’s sleep cycle and lower pain and swelling, which can disturb sleep.
  • Diabetes: CBD can potentially help with diabetes5R. G. Mendoza, M. L. Eiland, S. S. O’Neal, and E. M. Anderson, “Cannabidiol (CBD) Use in Type 2 Diabetes: A Case Report,” in Diabetes Spectrum, vol. 34, no. 2, pp. 198–201, May 2021. [Online]. Available: https://doi.org/10.2337/ds20-0023. It potentially lowers swelling, helps the body use insulin better, and protects the nerves, cutting down on problems from diabetes.
  • Psychosis: CBD might treat psychosis6I. G. Karniol et al., “Action of cannabidiol on the anxiety and other effects produced by δ9-THC in normal subjects,” Psychopharmacology, vol. 28, no. 1, pp. 95-102, Mar. 1974. [Online]. Available: https://doi.org/10.1007/BF00432554 by lowering symptoms made worse by fear and stress. It can also lessen the bad effects of THC.
  • Brain and Nerve Health: CBD has properties that protect the brain and nerves and can be used for disorders that hurt the brain7A. J. Hampson, M. Grimaldi, J. Axelrod, and D. Wink, “Cannabidiol and (−)Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol are neuroprotective antioxidants,” in Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, vol. 95, no. 14, pp. 8268–8273, Jul. 1998. [Online]. Available: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC20965/, like strokes.
  • Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Boost: The ECS is in the whole body and helps with many body processes. CBD makes this system work better, which can help with pain, swelling, focus, and more.

While vaping CBD has possible good effects, vaping itself might be risky. Always talk to a doctor and do good research before starting CBD.

Side Effects of Vaping CBD

CBD is known for its health perks, but it might have some side effects.
A recent study8J. Corroon and J. A. Phillips, “A Cross-Sectional Study of Cannabidiol Users,” in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, vol. 3, no. 1, pp. 152–161, 2018. [Online]. Available: https://doi.org/10.1089/can.2018.0006 found the following, however noted they are often milder side effects from many common meds.

  • Sleepiness: Taking a lot of CBD can make you sleepy. Smaller doses are less likely to do this.
  • Tired Feeling: New users or those using more CBD might feel a bit tired or slow. This usually gets better with more use.
  • Other Effects: Some folks have red eyes, eat more, or feel really happy after using CBD.

Remember, everyone’s different. While many have small side effects, watch how you feel and talk to a doctor if you’re worried. 

Always be safe and stay updated about new facts on CBD and its effects.

Can CBD Get You High?

CBD comes from the cannabis plant, but it doesn’t give the “high” that the plant is known for.

  • Not Like THC: THC in cannabis makes you feel high. CBD doesn’t do this.
  • Small Amounts of THC: Some CBD items have a bit of THC, but usually less than 0.3%. This tiny bit won’t make you feel high.
  • CBD Types: CBD comes from two kinds of cannabis:
    • Industrial hemp: Almost no THC.
    • Regular cannabis: More THC.
  • Most CBD items you can buy are from hemp, so they have little THC.
  • CBD vs. THC: CBD can lower the high from THC. If you use too much THC, vaping CBD can help calm the feeling.

If you worry about drug tests or getting high, you can get CBD with no THC. Always know where your CBD comes from and what’s in it.

The rules about vaping CBD change a lot depending on where you are. Here’s a quick look:

  • United States:
    • Federal Law: CBD is okay if it has less than 0.3% THC.
    • Some States: Places like Idaho, North Dakota, and Nebraska are tougher on CBD. They treat hemp products like cannabis ones. If you’re in a state where cannabis is okay, you can often use CBD, but watch the 0.3% THC rule.
  • Around the World:
  • European Union (EU):
    • Changes by Country: The EU doesn’t have one rule for CBD. Some countries in the EU let you use CBD, but the rules about making, selling, and using it can be very different.

Always check the CBD rules for where you are or where you’re going. Even if many people think CBD helps with stress, pain, and more, the law hasn’t agreed everywhere yet.

Can You Overdose on CBD?

Many people wonder if it’s possible to take too much CBD. Here’s a clear summary:

  • Not Very Toxic: CBD isn’t very toxic. If you take a lot, you might feel tired, but this isn’t dangerous and often goes away fast.
  • No Deaths from CBD: No one has ever died from taking too much CBD or any cannabis extract.
  • Hard to Take Harmful Amount: A study in the 1980s with monkeys found you’d have to take a huge amount of CBD to risk death. For humans, this is much, much more than the usual dose of around 30mg a day.

To sum up, always use CBD the right way and talk to a doctor about how much to take. But it seems very hard to take a deadly amount of CBD.

Not All CBD Products are Created Equal

With CBD not always checked by groups like the FDA or FSA, there are many low-quality fakes out there. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Watch Out for Fakes: Some CBD products don’t have much real CBD in them. Some studies have even found harmful stuff in them. That’s not safe!
  • How to Pick Good CBD: Buy CBD from well-known companies with lots of good reviews. The best ones check their products with good outside labs and show the results to everyone.

The Importance of Third-Party Lab Testing for CBD Products

Supplements like CBD don’t always have the same strict rules as food or medicine. Because of this, some sellers might try to sell bad products. Here’s what you should know:

  • Risks: Some CBD items have had bad chemicals in them, making people very sick. This shows why testing is so important.
  • What Tests Show: Good lab tests can tell you how much CBD and THC are in a product, if there are other terpenes, and if there are any bad things like leftover chemicals.
  • Good Test Reports: Make sure your CBD’s lab report is new (from the last year) and comes from a good lab. The best brands show how much THC and CBD their products have so everyone can see.
  • Trust and Quality: If a company doesn’t share its test results, be careful. Good CBD might cost more, but it’s safer and better quality.

To sum up, always get CBD that has been tested well by a good outside lab. This helps make sure it’s safe, high-quality, and real.

Are There Other Ways to Use CBD?

Many people like vaping as a way to use CBD. It’s easy, and the body can take in more CBD this way than most others.

But sometimes, you can’t vape (like on a bus). Or, some people might want a different way to use CBD that lasts longer.

Good news, there are many other ways to use CBD:

  • Creams and lotions for the skin
  • Stick-on patches
  • Edibles (like CBD gummies)
  • Drinks
  • Pills & Capsules
  • Tinctures (liquid drops)

For those who like to smoke or vaporize cannabis products, there’s also “CBD flower”. It’s a special kind of cannabis with lots of CBD and very little THC. You can smoke or vaporize it just like regular cannabis.

Final Thoughts

Vaping CBD oil has emerged as a popular method for many seeking the potential therapeutic benefits of cannabidiol.

This guide explains the differences between CBD oil and CBD vape juice. It also covers product safety and legal issues.

The CBD industry has moved from a lack of rules to better quality control. This shows why buyers need good information.

Always prioritize third-party tested products, consult healthcare professionals when in doubt, and remember that personal experiences with CBD can vary.

As the landscape of CBD continues to evolve, staying educated and safe is paramount.


Can You Vape CBD Oil?

No, you shouldn’t vape regular CBD oil. Inhaling oils can be harmful, leading to conditions like lipoid pneumonia10S. Sung, H. D. Tazelaar, J. P. Crapanzano, A. Nassar, and A. Saqi, “Adult exogenous lipoid pneumonia: A rare and underrecognized entity in cytology – A case series,” in Cytojournal, vol. 15, 2018. [Online]. Available: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6069323/. While some products are called “CBD vape oils,” they’re actually CBD vape juice which is oil-free and safer for vaping. These are made of VG (vegetable glycerin), PG (propylene glycol), CBD extract, terpenes, and cannabinoids. Always check product labels: if they contain actual oils or ingredients outside the ones listed, they may not be safe to vape.

Is there any risk posed by vaping CBD?

Yes, while CBD offers many benefits, including helping manage nicotine cravings, all forms of vaping come with some risk. That said, vaping CBD via vape pens, e-cigarettes, or disposable devices carries similar risks to vaping nicotine or flavored e-liquids. It’s essential to stay informed and use products responsibly.

Is CBD Safe?

Yes, current research indicates that CBD is generally safe. Common side effects like dry mouth, fatigue, drowsiness, and reduced appetite are mild and require a large CBD intake. However, CBD research is still ongoing. Unknowns include its effects on the developing brain, potential reproductive issues, and interactions with other substances. As with any supplement, it’s essential to use the correct dosage and stay updated with the latest research.

Which Brands Should I Avoid? 

It’s essential to be cautious as the CBD market has faced issues with false advertising11L. L. Gill, “Dangerous Chemicals Are Found in Popular CBD Products,” Consumer Reports, [Online]. Available: https://www.consumerreports.org/cbd/dangerous-chemicals-found-in-popular-cbd-products-diamond-cbd-5f-adb/. However, quality control in places like the U.S. is getting better. Always choose reputable brands that use third-party labs for product testing to ensure you’re getting a genuine, safe product.

Can vaping CBD cause me to test positive?

While CBD itself won’t cause a positive test, it’s derived from cannabis, the same plant that produces THC, which drug tests target. Ensure your CBD vape products don’t exceed legal THC limits. Remember, CBD products vary:

– Broad Spectrum CBD: Has multiple cannabinoids but no THC.
– Full Spectrum CBD: Contains all cannabinoids, including THC.

Always check product specifics to ensure you’re not consuming THC inadvertently. 
Find out more about how long CBD stays in your system, and THC drug tests.

Can Vaping CBD help me sleep?

Yes, many users report that using CBD vape liquids helps them relax and sleep better, mainly due to its fast absorption. However, everyone’s experience can differ. It’s always a good idea to speak with a healthcare professional before using CBD as a sleep aid.
