3 ways of consuming CBD!
Which are the three best ways to appreciate the characteristics of CBD?
Let’s take a look at some of our suggestions.
1 – CBD can be consumed as an e-liquid by means of electronic cigarettes.
On the market you can find a variety of zero-nicotine products with different concentrations of CBD; with 20, 100 and 200 mg CBD contents on 10 ml of product.
Many people appreciate the benefits of CBD by vaping; the choice between the various CBD concentrations depends on different factors.
If we vape often, we would better chose a low concentration of CBD to avoid an excessive state of “relaxation”.
On the other hand if we want to obtain an immediate effect, for example to neutralize a state of anxiety, we should chose a higher concentration.
After an intense workout, for example, vaping CBD is becoming ever more common amongst sports people.
However it is a subjective matter and it depends on how much we know about CBD as well.
People with no experience in using CBD, should start with the lower concentrations and can then decide how to proceed according to their own needs.
2 – Another way of consuming CBD is taking CBD oil
On the market we can find Hemp seed oil with CBD , a product which is having a great success amongst those who intend to improve their general psycho-physical conditions and want to obtain the most out of the nutritional values of hemp oil, like Omega 3 and antioxidants.
The CBD oil is used by a wide range of consumers: sportspeople, children, women in their midlives etc.
Excluding specific cases, we can state that CBD oil helps to regulate our metabolism and its physiological processes.
CBD oil doesn’t have any particular side effects and in this period is getting appreciated ever more by the consumers
How should we use it?
The most common way is to put a few drops under the tongue and retain it there for a minute or two, then swallow the remaining.
I t is also possible to consume it in foods; CBD passes the stomach without getting degraded by its acids which makes CBD rich hemp seed oil an efficient and valid product.
3 – A third option is to consume CBD by vaporizing it in its crystal form, already discussed in former articles.
We can use a nebulizer but can also find apposite vape pens on the market, as it is very important to pay attention to the temperature when vaporizing crystal.
If we don’t, we risk to burn the crystals and as a consequence are not able to appreciate their characteristics.
Crystals vaporize at temperatures between 140 and 180°Celcius.
T his way of consuming CBD is used mostly by those who at the end of a heavy workday intend to relax using this direct and healthy way.
T here is no combustion! In any case the nebulizer, just like the aerosol, is used by those who think it useful to contrast inflammations and support psycho-physical states by using CBD, which means to sustain ”healing processes”.
Does a “best way” for using CBD exist?
We can state that one way is no better than the others, as it depends very much on our personal characteristics, on our needs and on how much awareness we have regarding CBD.
What about you, how do you prefer to consume CBD?
Can you put cbd oil in a nebulizer? A common question people ask us: let's discover more about ways of consuming CBD!
Why People Are Using Nebulizers For CBD Oil

In the unending search for lower impact and less paraphernalia-esque methods of CBD oil administration, a few medical marijuana entrepreneurs have turned over an interesting stone вЂ” the pulmonary delivery method known as the nebulizer, previously used exclusively for respiratory illnesses such asВ asthma,В chronic obstructive pulmonary diseaseВ (COPD), and cystic fibrosis.
Instead of heating CBD oil to its activation point as with vaping or smoking, a nebulizer sends a mist of aerosolized CBD into the userвЂ™s mouth, providing a way to inhale the substance without irritating the throat and lung tissue. The first CBD nebulizers to market are jet nebulizers, which send compressed air through a specially formulated CBD water emulsion, turning it into micro particles that can be inhaled into the lungs.В
Can you put CBD oil in a nebulizer though? As cannabis and its extracts are hydrophobic вЂ” meaning they donвЂ™t like water вЂ” this is only possible with some tweaking, which has been the main obstacle in the way of CBD nebulizers until now. And overcoming this roadblock is the main innovation claimed by three innovators now on the scene.
вЂњThereвЂ™s a whole industry now looking at water solubilization technology,вЂќ as Yaron Eshel, the Director of Life Sciences at iCAN:Israel-Cannabis, told The Growth Op. вЂњHow do I get this oil and make it into very small molecules so that the body can absorb it? ItвЂ™s called nanoencapsulation. ItвЂ™s very standardized in the drug industry, very standardized in the food industry.вЂќ
EshelвЂ™s company is one of the first to market cannabis and CBD nebulizers. In collaboration with a technology company called CannRx, theyвЂ™ve developed two FDA-approved nebulizers, one for medical applications and the other for recreational use. As is the case with another early pioneer вЂ” Canna+Neb, whose medically-rated nebulizer starts at $1,999.99 вЂ” higher-end CBD nebulizers target conditions which require a consistent flow of CBD, such as insomnia, administered through a mask connected to the device. Recreational-use devices like that produced by fellow trailblazer Pearl2o are less expensive and can be administered via mouthpiece.
The Pros and Cons of CBD Nebulizers
Advocates of CBD nebulizers say theyвЂ™re healthier than other methods of using CBD, such as smoking or vaping. ItвЂ™s safe to say that nebulizers are healthier than smoking, but a lot of the evidence against vaping is either tenuous or the product of a poor regulatory environment. If nebulizer emulsions can avoid the contamination and inconsistency that have raised concerns about many low-priced vape pens and CBD vape oils (at the moment, thereвЂ™s not enough available research to say whether they do or not), then they would have a clear advantage over vaping from a health standpoint as well.
This benefit is magnified for those who seek to use CBD oil for its bronchodilatory effects. Studies have shown that in some cases CBD is as or more effective than common asthma and COPD medications albuterol and ipratropium in opening the airways and increasing airflow to the lungs вЂ” the research goes back to 1973, when a study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that вЂњmarihuana smoke, unlike cigarette smoke, causes broncho-dilation rather than broncho-constriction.вЂќ But while smoked or vaped CBD can cause irritation in the esophagus or lungs for some people, nebulizers can deliver the necessary medicine without causing discomfort of any kind.
In fact, one of the most interesting advantages that nebulizers provide is an ability to deliver CBD without heating or combustion. A Johns Hopkins study found that the metal coils used to heat vape tinctures likely leech significant amounts of heavy metals like nickel and chromium into the vapors that users inhale, an outcome that most would probably prefer to avoid.
Another advantage that is clearly established is the higher and faster bioavailability of CBD emulsions compared with other forms of delivery. This is attributed to both the fact that no CBD is вЂњwastedвЂќ upon exhalation, and the strong concentrations of the emulsion itself.
A subjective plus is the lack of taste and odor in nebulized CBD, and many people appreciate the absence of secondhand smoke or vapor.
There are few drawbacks to CBD nebulizers, but the ones that do exist might be enough to keep them from becoming mainstream. One is the cost, which likely factors into the niche distribution that currently constrains the devices. Even cheap models are hard to find for under $100, while mid-range devices can cost around $500.
To complicate matters, many of these devices only work with special formulations, and a fragmented marketplace of proprietary blends is likely to hinder the widespread adoption of CBD nebulizers. Since CBD is hydrophobic, making oneвЂ™s own emulsions at home requires a level of chemistry expertise that most people donвЂ™t have, which takes the DIY option off the table as well.
Finally, thereвЂ™s the convenience factor: although some CBD nebulizers are relatively portable, theyвЂ™re still not exactly svelte, while others are bulkier and hard to use outside of the home. Administering them also requires much more time than taking a CBD capsule or a few puffs of a vape pen.
In a world increasingly focused on price and efficiency, these factors might continue to restrict CBD nebulizers to a dedicated (if highly satisfied) segment of users.
Nebulizers are a clean, healthy (if somewhat expensive and cumbersome) way to use CBD oil.
