Everything You Need to Know About Vaping CBD Oil
Sean is a fact checker and researcher with experience in sociology and field research.
Vaping has been around for more than a decade now and is growing in popularity—especially among teens and young adults. One of the newest trends impacting this growing vape culture is the desire to vape cannabidiol (CBD) oil. In fact, using this oil in vape pens is becoming increasingly popular and the industry is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years according to the Brightfield Group, a firm that studies the CBD market.
Part of the draw to CBD oil in areas where marijuana has been legalized is the fact that it has been touted as helping treat a host of medical problems. Some of the medical issues people claim that the oil treats include epileptic seizures, anxiety, inflammation, and sleeplessness. However, there is very little evidence backing up these claims with the exception of treating epilepsy.
In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved only one CBD-based medication, which is used to treat seizures associated with two severe forms of epilepsy. But, when it comes to CBD in general, they stress that it cannot be added to food, drinks, or dietary supplements. And although the FDA has warned manufacturers against making unproven health claims, it has not done much to stop the sale of CBD products.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. Typically, it does not produce a “high” or intoxication because it contains very little, if any, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In fact, CBD oil is only permitted to contain less than 0.3% of THC. CBD oil is legal in states where medicinal or recreational marijuana is legal. Meanwhile, several other states have CBD-specific laws on the books even though marijuana is not yet legal there.
According to the FDA, it is currently illegal to market CBD by adding it to food or marketing it as a supplement. Despite these guidelines, they warn consumers that some CBD products are being marketed with unproven medical claims and are of unknown quality. They also caution consumers that CBD can harm the liver and may interact with other medications you are taking. And, it may even have a negative impact on male fertility.
Is Vaping CBD Oil Safe?
Generally speaking, vaping is an unsafe practice regardless of what substances are in the vape pen. And, CBD oil is no exception. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently linked vaping products to an outbreak of nearly 3,000 lung illnesses that were so serious that even young people were being admitted to the hospital. Meanwhile, nearly 70 people have died from what is now being called EVALI (e-cigarette and vaping associated lung injury). And, the CDC believes thousands more may have admitted to the hospital with lung issues related to vaping.
Although the CDC has traced many of the EVALI hospitalizations back to vitamin E acetate, a substance used to dilute oils used in vaping, the risks of vaping CBD oil are not without risk, especially if the vape pens are obtained from illicit dealers, online sources, or friends. At least 26 of the EVALI cases were hospitalized after vaping CBD oil.
Additionally, numerous scientists, doctors, and researchers are concerned with the safety of inhaling CBD oil because little is known about the long-term effects. What’s more, when vaping devices are heated, a chemical reaction takes place in the vapor, which could pose additional risks to the lungs, especially in young people.
And despite the fact that the 2018 Farm Bill removed CBD from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act, it is still subject to the same laws and regulations as other substances monitored by the FDA. Unfortunately, though, there is very little regulatory oversight of CBD oil in general—even though vaping is one of the most popular ways of using the oil. In fact, the FDA has not yet determined how to regulate CBD vaping products just yet.
But many people are hoping those regulations will happen soon. Even the CBD industry is concerned and asking for oversight. For instance, without more regulations, organizations like the U.S. Hemp Authority are unable to certify CBD oils as it does with CBD topicals, tinctures, and edibles. And, until that happens, consumers have very little way of knowing what they are getting when they purchase a CBD oil.
To make matters worse, this lack of certification has lead people to sell vaping liquid they claim contains CBD oil when it actually contains harmful chemicals, which is injuring and killing people in the process. To determine the extent to which this is occurring, the Associated Press (AP) commissioned a study to analyze the contents of nearly 30 oils claiming to contain CBD.
Their testing was completed by Flora Research Laboratories in Grants Pass, Oregon, which is licensed and inspected by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. What they discovered is that 10 of the 30 vapes contained synthetic marijuana while others had no CBD oil at all. Additionally, eight oils had no detectable level of CBD while 14 were less than 0.3% CBD by weight. The other six ranged between 1.07% and 8.87% CBD by weight.
Because this testing was a such a small sample, the AP noted that their sampling is not representative of the entire CBD market. However, their testing does show just how risky it is to vape CBD oil when there is little to no regulation of the product. Vapers have no idea what they are getting when they take a puff.

Wild Hemp’s CBD Vape Oil is prepared using hemp derived CBD extract mixed with organic vegetable glycerin. This makes the CBD product suitable for vaping and inhalation, oral ingestion and adding it in your food/beverages.
Our CBD Vape Oil variants come in different strengths tailored based on our customers’ consumption needs. Regardless of the strengths, all our products are free from THC and as a result non-psychoactive.
All of our products are sourced from plants that are grown locally and organically. We do not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
As awareness around CBD oil increases in the USA, CBD Vape Oil is surging in demand owing to its convenience. Wild Hemp’s large range of strengths means the vape juices are suitable for both, the experienced users and beginners alike.
What Strengths Does Wild Hemp Carry?
Wild Hemp’s CBD Vape Oils carry CBD strengths to meet the varying demands of the market. Our products range from 150 mg per 30 ml to 1000 mg per 60 ml.
Offering CBD vape in varying strengths helps meet a wide variety of customer needs. Products with lower strengths meet the needs of first-timers who wish to try CBD vape and the beginners to vaping CBD products. The stronger ones can satisfy the more experienced CBD vaping users who want a higher concentration. We recommend you always start with a low dosage, then slowly and carefully increase till you find the optimal level for you as an individual.
All of Wild Hemp’s CBD vape products have their strengths accurately mentioned on the label. To calculate the units of CBD present per ml, divide the amount of CBD present in the bottle by the total ml of vape oil.
What Are The Benefits of CBD Vape Oil?
Research on the benefits of using CBD products is in its infancy. Though there are numerous anecdotal claims that support the positive effects of CBD, scientific evidence is only up and coming.
As of now, the various medical benefits of CBD articulated on the web have no sufficient medical backing. We highly recommend you get counsel and appropriate treatment from a GP for any ailments. There is still a need for more scientific evidence to prove the curative properties of CBD.
Firstly, CBD is widely consumed for the therapeutic effect it offers, due to the Entourage Effect. It’s the mechanism by which CB1 and CBD2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid system get stimulated by the cannabinoids in the product.
CBD Vape Oil’s most distinct and immediate benefit is its high bioavailability. Simply put, while vaping, CBD is assimilated into your bloodstream quicker than when consumed via other means. When inhaled, the vapors bypass the digestive system and directly enter the air sacs present in the lungs.
Subsequently, CBD is immediately discharged into the circulatory system. This helps you realize CBD’s relaxing effect faster.
That’s why, understandably, there is a rapidly growing market for CBD vapes.
What Are The Side Effects of CBD Vape Oil?
Research in many areas of CBD is still relatively new. New studies are churned out almost every day but the field is still taking baby steps in identifying potential side effects.
CBD dosages and their respective effects vary with different bodily factors. We would still recommend you to stop using these CBD vapes if they cause any discomfort.
Moreover, CBD is also known to interact with medications you may take, always take advice from your doctor before taking CBD if you are already taking medicines.
Can it Get You High?
All of our vape oils contain absolutely no THC in them. THC is the psychoactive component that induces the high associated with marijuana.
Wild Hemp’s CBD vapes are used for the therapeutic feeling they ease you with. They do not cause any psychoactive effects that give a big jolt to your mind and get you “stoned” or get you “high”.
CBD vapes are often taken for relaxation and do not make use of high-inducing, psychoactive compounds.
Sometimes the onset of CBD vape products can be faster for some beginners making them feel high. However, this effect is safe and users get used to it with time as opposed to the intoxicating effect associated with THC.
Moreover, we do not manufacture full-spectrum CBD oil products. All of our products are broad-spectrum CBD and contain no THC in them. All the relaxation you get is thanks to the rich CBD and other compounds present in the vape juice.
Thus, Wild Hemp’s CBD vape juices do not contain THC which may cause a high or similar psychoactive effects.
Will The CBD Show Up On A Drug Test?
According to the U.S. Drug Test Centers, the presence of CBD in your bloodstream will not appear on a THC drug test.
The US government’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, or SAMHSA, certifies the labs that conduct drug tests for employers and government agencies.
These drug tests screen users for the presence of THC- the psychoactive component present in cannabis plants. If the test confirms the presence of THC levels >50 ng/mL, then the individual would be tested positive for marijuana. Although these drugs tests detect the presence of any high-inducing compounds, they are not designed to test the presence of CBD.
For users who consume high levels of CBD (say, over 2000 mg/day), there is a small possibility that their tests would incur a false positive. However, this is rare and can be conclusively corrected with follow-up tests.
Hence, consuming or vaping CBD oil alone does not put you on the wrong side of a drug test. This is mainly because these standardized tests check for THC levels and not for their non-psychoactive counterpart, CBD.
Is CBD Vape Oil Legal?
In 2018, the USA passed the Farm Bill making manufacturing and selling organic hemp plants, which contain less than 0.3% THC, legal in the country. This converted the hemp plant into an agricultural product stripping off its earlier status as a “dangerous controlled substance with no medical use”.
Since then, cannabis plants that contain THC within permissible levels (
