The most common method of CBD consumption remains oral ingestion (either by drops or capsules), but increasingly more and more people are now beginning to explore a whole variety of different ways to consume CBD. Some of these increasingly popular methods can be either by dabbing or by using a vaporizer.
While oils and capsules are a perfectly safe and typical way to consume CBD, it should be noted that you can't smoke CBD oil. Some people now prefer to smoke or vape CBD, but this method is best consumed with a CBD e-liquid as oil smokes and burns at high temperatures. This new trend of vaping is because the CBD enters the bloodstream at a faster rate through the lung tissue, thus allowing for a quicker and more noticeable effect on the user.

If you are looking for a high concentration of CBD, then smoking CBD form an “oil rig” is one of the most effective ways to achieve this. An oil rig is a device similar to a traditional water pipe, which uses a heated element (usually titanium or quartz), to heat up the CBD e-liquid to a critical temperature. The e-liquid is then vaporized, directed through water filtration for cooling, and then inhaled by the user in a large concentration. This produces a smoother smoke that is not as thick as a cannabis-plant smoke, however it can be a little ticklish on the throat and may induce some coughing.
Dabbing is another common method of smoking CBD that is increasingly gaining in popularity thanks to it’s powerful and rapid effect. This method of consumption allows you to enjoy CBD in its purest form. Using a CBD concentrate in this form is a really effective way of harnessing the effects of CBD. Users who use CBD in this form swear by its rapid effectiveness and potency. New users should use caution, though, when dabbing for the first time, as this consumption method is far stronger than capsules or oils. Although you won’t overdose on CBD, consuming an excessive amount via dabbing could result in an uncomfortable experience.
Vaping CBD is one of the easiest methods of consuming CBD and also one of the healthiest when it comes to absorbing CBD via your respiratory system.
Vaporizing has rapidly emerged as the preferred method for CBD consumption among health-conscious CBD users with an increasing amount of people swapping their cigarettes for a CBD vape pen. Indeed, using a vaporizer (or vape pen) is now one of the most common methods of CBD consumption thanks to its convenience, discretion and fast effects.
What Is a Vaporizer?
A vaporizer is a device that uses convection or conduction to precisely and evenly heat your CBD. This process produces a pure, clean vapor that can be safely inhaled to absorb the natural health benefits of your CBD.
For people with chronic pain or other conditions treated with CBD, vaping provides a convenient and almost instant relief that you might not achieve when taking CBD in capsule or oil form. Many users do describe an almost instantaneous effect when they first vape CBD, so if you need a fast and effective relief from pain, vaping could well provide the solution.
This method of consumption also allows users to remain discrete and consume CBD in public, while also offering fast and effective relief as the CBD enters your bloodstream at a quicker rate than via either capsule or oil. With so many people now looking to quit smoking (cigarettes), CBD vaping provides a healthier alternative that is now increasing rapidly in popularity, all thanks to the multitude of potential benefits that CBD can provide.
Benefits of Smoking or Vaping CBD
Smoking a cigarette is probably one of the most pointless things a human being can do in 2018, but sadly millions of people remain addicted to a substance that killed 6 million people last year. Such numbers are truly barbaric and devastating to our society. However, millions of people remain hooked in spite of all the deadly information that is so readily available to us today.
One of the main problems, of course, is that smoking is incredibly difficult to quit. Thankfully, alternatives to smoking are now available and one of the best ways to help you quit smoking is by vaping CBD. There is actually some really promising evidence that CBD use may help people to quit smoking. One pilot study found that smokers who used an inhaler containing CBD smoked fewer cigarettes, but did not have any additional craving for nicotine. Not only are you getting rid of those horrible cigarettes, but you will actually replace a killer substance with one that can actually help to heal you. That makes sense right?
So many smokers claim to enjoy a cigarette because they suffer from stress, anxiety or nervousness. They may even just enjoy the feeling of holding something in their fingers when in public. Now, by vaping CBD, you can actually help to treat your anxiety, avoid cancer and still continue your habit of holding something in between your fingers!
When you vape CBD, the CBD enters your lungs and diffuses directly into your bloodstream rather than passing through your gut and liver. This process allows for nearly four times as much CBD to enter your circulation as compared to oral ingestion. Basically, this means you can achieve the same beneficial effects with a much smaller dosage of CBD.
Vaporizing devices are also quick and convenient, allowing you to take small “hits” of CBD throughout the day as opposed to taking a pill or oil in the morning or evening. This allows you to control your intake of CBD throughout the day or to have it available when you need it most.
So, while you can certainly smoke CBD, there are so many different options now available that give CBD users the freedom to reap the benefits at their pleasure and convenience.
