Are You New Vaping CBD?
Vaping has moved beyond a smoking alternative and now has an industry of its own. With tons of manufacturers and products, consumers get a flood of information – information, they may not be ready for. This article is targeted at the inexperienced consumer, as an educational resource amongst the shroud of marketing campaigns. In this post, we’ll give an overview of vaping, especially as it comes to CBD.
What is Vaping?
Vaping refers to the use of personal devices, including “pens” and “mods,” that use convection or conduction to heat its contents to their “vaporization point,” a point that is cooler than the combustion point.
Vape Pens: Vape pens are the original vaping devices. They have a battery with a fillable oil cartridge. Many of these devices, like the “O” pen, don’t require a button to heat its contents; all you have to do is inhale and the device is activated and begins to vaporize.
Box Mods: Box Mods offer more power than your traditional vape pens, as well as costing more. They have a longer battery life, and be customized to the user’s preferences. A user can often customize a mod by changing voltage, wattage, and temperature. In another article, we looked at the unique profiles of VG and PG, which have different temperature points for vaporization. A mod offers more flexibility than a pen does, and will allow you to find the sweet spots for different cbd e juice and liquid.
Once a vapor is produced, the user then inhales, avoiding the toxins, carcinogens and other chemicals that come from smoking. Still, vaping allows for quick entry into your bloodstream, many times quicker than other ingestion methods. This means that individuals vaping CBD or THC will feel the effects much quicker.
How do Vaporizers Work?
While hardware may look different, the mechanics behind vaping devices are usually the same. The involve the workings of a tank, atomizer, some software, and a battery.
- The Tank: The oil holder is typically called a tank if refillable, or a cartridge if intended for one-time use. Tanks are usually combined with atomizers to form single units. The material may be polycarbonate plastic, glass, or stainless steel.
- The Atomizer: The atomizer is the heater within a vaping device that converts liquid into airborne droplets. They may also be called cartomizers or clearomizers.
- Software/Sensors: Some vaporizers activate automatically when a user inhales, others require the push of a button. Sensors are built into the vaporizers to respond to either action.
- The Battery: Vape devices need to have strong enough batteries to power them to hundreds of degrees fahrenheit in just seconds. To accomplish this, your device needs energy dense rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
Whatever vaping device you use will rely on these components to produce vapor.
