Shop CBD E-Liquids in Ireland with Xmania

CBD e-liquids are a popular way to enjoy the many potential benefits of CBD hemp-based products. With all the different types, subcategories, and products available, it can be difficult to know how to choose the right one or if a CBD e-liquid is right for your needs.

In reality, the topic is much simpler than you think, so read on for a full breakdown of what they are and how to buy the best CBD e-liquid in Ireland.

What is a CBD e-liquid?

CBD e-liquid, also known as CBD vape juice, CBD e-juice, and CBD vape liquid, is the CBD-infused liquid that powers your vaping device. It can be neutral or flavoured and comes in varying levels of CBD intensity.

When the liquid is heated in your vape kit it turns into the vapour that you inhale. This delivers CBD directly into your bloodstream, through your lungs, with every draw you take.

Since vaping has taken off in recent years, CBD-infused e-liquids have become increasingly popular as a great way to relax, relieve stress, or just enjoy a delicious flavor, while also getting your daily dose of CBD.

Using the product couldn’t be easier. All you need is a vape kit, with a CBD e-liquid cartridge and you are ready to go. Many kits don’t need any prep, and all you need to do is press the button and inhale. For anything else required, the packaging contains full instructions.

What are the advantages of using CBD e-liquids?

There are many ways to use CBD including in oil from a dropper or capsule, or as an edible in the form of gummy bears, gummy cubes, brownies, or even chocolates. All these methods are great but CBD e-liquids offer another alternative with distinct advantages.

Why use CBD e-liquids?

  1. Health benefits Research - indicates that CBD may be effective for pain relief, insomnia, anxiety, and the alleviation of inflammatory conditions. Remember that if you are using CBD for medical reasons, you should always consult with your doctor first.
  2. No added calories - Compared to CBD edibles, inhaled vape juice adds zero calories to your diet. Unlike those delicious brownies!
  3. Fast acting - Ingestibles like CBD oil, brownies, and gummy bears, take longer to act on the body. Inhaling CBD-infused e-liquids is the most efficient way to obtain the desired effect from your CBD, particularly if you are using it for pain relief.
  4. Quit smoking - Vaping in general is a great way to kick the habit of smoking. Add in some CBD vape juice and you not only lose a bad habit but you can have a positive impact on your well-being as well.

Dosage: How much CBD in E-liquid should you take?

There is no preset formula to know how much will work best for you, but luckily, it’s very easy to determine this through a simple, ‘start low and go slow’, trial and error process.

Neuroscientist Dr. Adie Rae of the Legacy Research Institute in Portland, Oregon, estimates that about half the CBD in vaping liquid enters the bloodstream compared to about 5% with edibles.

As every person has a unique endocannabinoid system, metabolism, diet, and lifestyle, as well as other factors that influence the effect, there is no standard protocol. But you can still work out your relative dosage intake with a few simple calculations.

Here are some numbers to give you an idea of the dose you can obtain from a CBD e-liquid compared to a brownie or a gummy bear.

CBD e-liquid vs CBD gummy bear vs CBD brownie: the numbers

A standard 50ml CBD e-juice bottle with 1000mg of CBD contains about 5000 puffs if we calculate approximately 100 puffs for each 1ml of liquid. Divide 1000mg of CBD by 50 and this gives you 0.2mg per puff. Of this, your body will absorb about half or 0.1mg per puff.

A standard brownie contains about 25mg of CBD of which about 5% will be absorbed or 1.25mg. This means that about 12 to 13 puffs will give you the same amount as one brownie.

A standard gummy bear contains about 10mg of which about 5% is absorbed or 0.5mg. This is the equivalent of 5 puffs of CBD e-liquid.

Keep in mind that the onset of your CBD vape juice will happen within minutes while your brownie or gummies might take as long as two hours to take effect. The best way to gauge your optimal dose is to take a 3-second pull and then wait for about 15 minutes. If you don't feel any effects then consider taking a second puff.

Did you get all that? Don't worry too much about the numbers, just remember, 'start low, go slow' and you'll know your optimum dose in no time.

How are CBD e-liquids made?

CBD is extracted from the hemp plant through one of a variety of methods, such as carbon dioxide extraction, ethanol extraction, and steam distillation. The extracted CBD is then purified and tested for quality assurance.

The pure extract is combined with carrier oils and other flavourings. The most common carrier oils used for CBD liquids are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG), although other oil-based mediums are also used. The carrier oils help to balance out the CBD content and facilitate the addition of terpenes for flavour.

The CBD extract, dissolved in the carrier oils, is now mixed with any desired flavourings. The ingredients are heated, cooled, and then tested again to ensure that everything is properly combined. Depending on the manufacturer and the desired product, the CBD liquids can be homogenized or mixed using a variety of methods.

The entire process must be sterile and conducted according to strict EU guidelines to ensure safety for human consumption.  Depending on the formulation, CBD e-liquids can have a range of flavours, from sweet and fruity to earthy and herbal.

In a nutshell

CBD e-liquids are fast acting and easy to use. Compared to other CBD consumables they are more rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream so they are perfect when you need a quick result.

Finding the best dosage for your needs is as simple as taking your first puff, waiting 15 minutes to see if there is any effect and then proceeding from there until you know how many puffs you will need to obtain your desired result going forward.

The product is made under strict laboratory conditions from hemp plant extracts and food-grade carrier oils and flavourings. Using your vape kit couldn't be easier and if you have any doubts you can read the packaging or get in touch with us if you have any questions.
