Ingredients required to make CBD Vape Juice
Ordinary vape juice is made up of vegetable glycerin, flavourings, MCT oil and propylene glycol.
In comparison to this, CBD vape juice is also prepared with the blend of similar ingredients yet with an addition of CBD extract and a fraction of terpenes for making your vape juice aromatic.
In order to prepare a fine quality CBD vape juice, you need to fully understand each and every ingredient being used in it. So let’s have a deep look over it!
It is used as a carrier in vape juice. It is actually a kind of alcohol just like glycerin!
It is used for holding the taste of your vape and making the clouds thin and lighter.
It also acts as a preservative and facilitating the vape juice to last longer.
Sugar alcohol made from plant oils. Plant oils are heated at a specific range of temperatures which removes the fatty acids from the glycerin components giving an end product of a sweet and odourless gluey liquid which is actually called glycerin.
It is added in the most blends of the available vape juices because it helps making a heavy and thick smoke everyone desires for.
Having a hint of sweetness VG is considered to be the most essential ingredient of a vape juice.
Used as an alternative to PG and VG.
Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) is a fatty component derived from oils like palm and coconut.
It is an odourless and a flavourless oil used by many of the vape juice manufacturers as a carrier.
These are quite similar to cannabinoids!
It binds with the receptors in your brain and body in order to provide assemblage effect.
Also, terpenes are added in CBD vape juice to activate the aromatherapic feel and floating a natural flavour in the liquid.
It’s eveyrone’s favourite!
Yes, the flavour. 😀
Flavour defines the probability of being choosed by a vape user.
It makes your vape more aromatic and enjoyable to make you feel good while vaping.
FDA (Food and Durg Administration) has a detailed enforcement policy over the use of vape and electronic ciggaretes. It also defines the kind of approved flavours that could be sold to the end users!
NOTE: Flavourings used in vape juices are totally non oil-based. In fact, none of the components used in vape juices are made from ordinary or essential oils as they’re really dense and are not safe to inhale.
Preparing CBD Vape Juice with CBD Isolate
Many of the CBD users are aware of the difference between CBD Isolate Vs. Full Spectrum CBD.
But, for those who don’t know. The one liner defenition of CBD isolate is “it is the purest for of CBD“.
So without wasting any bit of time, let’s dive into the recipe for prearping vape juice with a CBD isolate.
Here is the list of key ingredients you’ll be needing to prepare 30ml of CBD vape juice.
- Propylene glycol (15 ml)
- Your favourite flavouring or terpenes (3 ml)
- Vegetable glycerin (12 ml)
- CBD isolate extract (500 mg)
- Digital scale
- An empty vape juice container
Now since we have noted down the list of ingredients for prearping CBD vape juice ourselves. Here’s a step by step guide for preparing the vape juice!
Step 1: With the help of syringe add 15ml of propylene glycol in the empty vape juice container.
Step 2: Measure 0.5gm i.e. 500mg of CBD isolate extract and add it into the vape juice container holding the 15ml of propylene glycol.
You should know that how much is too much. So here’s a guide over the CBD dosage for your ease!
Step 3: Gently shake the container for making a solvent of CBD isolate and PG until it is fully dissolved and make sure that no solid particles are visible in the container.
Step 4: Now using the syringe, add 12ml of vegetable glycerin into your mixture and again shake it gently to make it a blend of all three.
Step 5: Add your favourite flavourings in a limited amount of 3ml.
Step 6: Now you are ready to fill up your vape tank and smoke. 🙂
Just make sure that you put the remaining vape juice in refrigrator or any cool dry place in order to make it last longer.
You might be thinking that how much this thing can last?
You genuinely need not to worry about this because in most cases a CBD vape juice can last for like 18-24 months and if stored gently, it may last upto even for 5 years.
So in order to increase the shelf life of the juice, it is more receommended to store it in a cool dark place.

Can you vape CBD oil?
Can you vape CBD oil is a question that comes up quite often. This is because things get a little blurred and confused around the names. This is an industry-wide issue, so make sure you know you are buying vape juice and not actually oil.
Here are the different names and what they mean
CBD oil – these are tincture drops and are designed to be taken orally
CBD vape oil – these are products which are designed to be vaped, despite the fact it has oil in the title, it is not oil.
CBD e-liquid/vape juice – these are designed to be vaped. It is the proper name for vaping CBD though vape oil and eliquid are often used
So the answer is no. You can’t vape CBD oil which comes in the form of tincture OIL drops.
Why make your own CBD vape juice
You might decide to make your own CBD vape juice if you want complete control over your CBD vape. This means you control the flavour, the cloud, the strength and the terpenes you want.
Having a product perfectly suited to you and your tastes might take a little more effort, however, the end results could well be worth it. The after product may also work out that little bit cheaper in the long run as you can batch make and store.
What do you need to make your own vape juice from CBD isolate?
To make your own CBD vape juice you will need a few things. Some you should have knocking about the kitchen, other equipment might mean a quick visit to ebay or Amazon, and of course, Vape and Juice.
You can buy your isolate and terpenes at a CBD dispensary.
- A sensitive gram scale
- A clean and sterile container
- Funnels, spoons and stirrers
- Bottles to store the e liquid
- Pestle and mortar (or you can use a rolling pin and bowl!)
- A low level heat source such as a pan of warm water or a radiator
- Your chosen terpenes for flavour and effect
- CBD isolate – this should be a white powder or translucent slabs
- Vape juice – either unflavoured VG and PG vape juice fluid in your chosen ratios. If you are using a premade juice, make sure there is 0mg nicotine
How to make CBD vape juice
Right, so you’ve got your equipment ready. Your white lab coat on. You are ready to go. Now… where do you start. Follow our step by step guide for how to make CBD vape juice to make sure you nail it and perfect your own personal blend. Before you get started you need to do a little maths.
Firstly, you want to decide how big your bottles of vape juice are going to be, and what the % of that will be CBD. Here’s where you need to really think about your ratios.
You could create a 100ml bottle of eliquid, however, if you add 500mg of CBD this gets quite heavily diluted to if you had a 10ml bottle with 500mg of CBD. It is important to take this into consideration as it is a CBD vape mistake that we see too often. More on this in the video below.
Along with your CBD volume, you also need to decide your ratio of VG and PG. In brief, VG creates clouds and is good for direct lung inhale, whereas PG is more like a traditional smoking experience with an MTL inhale. You can get down into the detail on our blog Ultimate Guide to Vaping.
Most often, CBD e liquid is made up of 50/50 of PG/VG. However, when you make your own you have the option to add more VG if you are after something a little cloudier.
One thing to note here is to make sure your ratio is going to work with your device. If you have a basic pod or pen, you will want to go no higher than 50% VG. If you have a larger tank then you can go higher, just make sure you don’t heat it to above 200 degrees when vaping.
Okay, enough housekeeping… let’s get into how to make CBD vape juice
- Measure out your chosen amount of CBD on your gram scales then crush it up using your pestle and mortar or home improvisation. Set aside.
- Decide on your ratios of VG and PG, measure out your bottles and leave them close to a radiator or in a bowl of warm water (with the lids on obvs) for about an hour
- Empty the CBD isolate into the warmed up vape juice until it is fully dissolved
- Time to add the flavour! This comes in the form of terpenes. You will only need a few drops of your chosen terpenes as they are very concentrated. As a guide, you might add 0.5ml of terpenes for every 10ml of vape liquid
- Leave your newly created CBD eliquid in a cool, dry place for 2 days to allow the flavour to steep
How to put CBD in your vape juice
You can try the above with your own VG and PG blend, or you can add your CBD isolate powder to ready-made eliquid. This might be your choice if you don’t want to create from scratch completely, or you are happy with the e liquid flavour you have.
You just need to make sure that you don’t add CBD isolate to nicotine eliquid. This degrades the CBD, making it pointless and a waste of money.
Homemade vs shop brought CBD vape oil
- More control over your product
- You choose flavour
- You can select perfect strength and PG/VG ratio
- Cheaper to buy raw materials and make in bulk
- Could make it wrong and potentially waste your CBD
- Available in different flavours
- Various strengths to choose from
- Don’t have to buy large bottles of VG and PG
- No cost of other equipment such as funnels and juice bottles
- Easy and convenient
Will CBD get me high?
It doesn’t matter how much CBD you add to your homemade blend, it will not get you high. This is because it doesn’t contain THC – the intoxicating cannabinoid.
Why add terpenes to your homemade CBD vape oil?
Terpenes add flavour to your homebrew, but that is not all. You’ll find terpenes in lavender, pine trees, orange peel, black pepper and so many more. They’ve long been used as alternative remedies, additives to your cleaning products and cosmetic items.
They have their own individual aromas and potential benefits. When you add these to your CBD isolate you create a broad spectrum CBD. This means that it contains terpenes too.
Having your terpenoids along with your CBD is thought to create the entourage effect, where different cannabis compounds work together.
Currently, it is a theory which is supported by a small amount of research. However, there have been lots of anecdotes from cannabis enthusiasts who experiment with different terpenes and cannabinoid blends.
All the ingredients you need to make your own CBD vape juice can be found at Vape and Juice or CBDStar – except the optional lab coat and goggles. We don’t sell those, but you could always order one elsewhere if you really want to look the part.
