CBD e-liquids aren’t psychoactive, the same as any other legal CBD products here in the UK. CBD vape juice features very minimal traces of THC, which is the compound that accounts for the psychoactive properties. As such, you can rest assured that vaping CBD e-liquids won’t cause any psychoactive reactions.
Vaping CBD is increasingly popular. Whether you are brand new to vaping or have simply never tried vaping CBD liquid, the great news is that the process is straight-forward. Vaping CBD is no different from vaping with regular e-liquid!
Are CBD e-liquids psychoactive?
Experience aside, other factors can determine how strong you should go with your CBD intake, including age, weight, and the symptoms you are trying to ease. It is, for this reason, we always advise to air on the side of caution and opt for a low dose of CBD to begin with.
If you are a regular consumer of nicotine, you will have to ensure you do this separately from your CBD vape, as nicotine and CBD cannot be combined in e-liquids.
However, on average, you can expect a 10ml of 100mg of CBD vape juice to last around a week without overuse.

The Ins and Outs of Mixing Cannabis and CBD Oils with E-Liquids
One of the greatest advantages of an e-cig is the convenience, although that can quickly evaporate if you hope to use cannabis or CBD oil without at least a foundational understanding of what you’re doing. Many do-it-yourself sites online will offer all sorts of ways to start from scratch to make your own e-liquid first and then blend it with a cannabis extract, which is a process only for those with high doses of patience (and, possibly, for masochists). Plenty of sites even suggest making your own cannabis oil as well, taking the entire process to a new level of complexity.
You might be a bit of a rookie if you don’t know the difference here, but the vaping industry as a whole is moving towards inclusivity instead of some esoteric “in-club” that the long list of terminology might suggest. And when it comes to something that is used as regularly as most use CBD oil, there are no stupid questions. All that to say that, yes, people have tried to vape orally-intended CBD oil and vice-versa, as it can be easy to believe they are one in the same despite that being very far from the truth.
It is also a crucial distinction for anyone looking to mix an extract with e-juice manually. After all, you don’t want to start mixing preblended CBD vape juice with an e-liquid unless you’re doing a YouTube video of exactly what not to do. The result will be that the combined liquid will be far too thin to offer a viable vaping session, and you simply won’t get anywhere near the effect that you’re looking for. While many out there wrongly interchange oil and vape juice when describing a CBD product, anyone looking to mix CBD oil with a separately purchased VG or PG-based e-juice absolutely needs to know the difference.
The reason for this is simple – the CBD in a food supplement has been added to a carrier oil (Like Hemp Oils, or MCT Oils) which are not suitable for vaporising. The result may be harmful for your lungs, or completely destroy your vape! The liquids we use to vape CBD (and nicotine) are not really oils, but rather a very specialised sugar syrup that looks and feels oily.
There are a couple of steps to this process and each seems a little more difficult than they actually are. So, here follows a couple of things you will need before you make your own CBD e-liquid.:
How To Make Your Own CBD E-Liquid | DYI CBD E-Liquid
Once the isolate has dissolved, it is time to take the vape juice out of the water and allow it to cool down. Once it is cool, you have the base for you DIY CBD e-liquid and you can add anything you like; whether that is flavours or nicotine.
As the oil starts to warm up, keep stirring the liquid until it reaches 60 degrees – this is the optimum temperature for the CBD to bind with the VG and PG. Measure out your CBD to get the concentration you think is best. Try and work out the concentration in mg’s per 10ml of liquid so that you do not overdo it, or waste the CBD.
Add the CBD isolate to the liquid and ensure that you keep stirring the liquid until the crystals/ white specks have fully dissolved- this could take 10 minutes, or could take an hour. It’s all a waiting game. Try your best to keep the temperature at a steady 60 degrees and not much higher than that.
