CBD, or Cannabidiol which the acronym is short for, is one of over 140 currently known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. For many years, most people have associated Cannabis with THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the cannabinoid that gets you ‘high’. However, most cannabinoids found in the hemp plant like CBD do not produce any psychoactive effects and don’t actually get you high. They do, however, have significant potential to aid our bodily functions.
Due to strict rules around making medicinal claims about CBD, we cannot legally give specific medical advice, and law-abiding companies will not be able to help with this.
Despite its versatility, your average high-quality CBD Oil, consisting of a full spectrum hemp extract and a carrier oil, is unlikely to be suitable for vaporisation. CBD Oils are very versatile products. The recommended way to use them is to hold the drops under the tongue for a couple of minutes before swallowing. But Cannabidiol Oil can also be ingested directly, mixed into food and rubbed on the skin.
CBD vape products normally consist of either CBD Distillate (a refined CBD extract), or CBD vape juice. Vape juices for CBD normally contain a refined CBD extract, such as CBD Isolate or CBD Distillate, and either propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerine (VG). They can also include added terpenes and flavourings.
But it is important to note that these products do not include hemp seed oil or MCT oil, which are commonly used in CBD Hemp Oils intended for ingestion. Vaporising oils carries the risk of triggering lipoid pneumonia, which is a rare disease that occurs when oil or fat enters the lungs. Lipoid pneumonia can cause symptoms such as a cough, fever, chest pains and shortness of breath.
So if you enjoy vaping CBD, it is crucial to buy a product that is specifically designed for vaporisation, and not a standard CBD Oil intended for ingestion.
The Cannabis plant, or Hemp, is a highly efficient bioaccumulator. This means that it is very good at drawing substances from the soil into the plant itself. In many cases, this can be very useful and is often used in farming as part of crop rotation to help regulate levels of unwanted substances from the ground.
Absorbing high levels of vitamins and minerals from the soil can also mean healthier food for eating. Hemp has even been used to clean up radioactive waste from the Chernobyl disaster.
However, this means that if Hemp is grown on poor quality, polluted land without proper management, it will more than likely contain high levels of heavy metals, such as arsenic, lead, copper, zinc, mercury, nickel and cadmium. And when large amounts of Hemp are used for extraction, the final product would contain these heavy metals in high concentrations.
Monitoring and controlling levels of heavy metals is a normal part of food safety for all food products that are sold in the UK – not just CBD – and has been for a long time. So as long as your CBD supplier is abiding by all relevant regulations, this should not be an issue.
