Now that CBD has become so popular, growers are creating strains of the cannabis plant that are optimized for producing high amounts of this particular cannabinoid. There are tons of new strains on the market that feature a high CBD-to-THC ratio. This makes it even easier for the processing facilities to remove the CBD and turn it into an oil extract.
Oh, was I just talking about Girl Scout cookies? I prefer showers over baths—we all have an allegiance to one or the other—but we can’t ignore how many memes have come out of #bathbombs. It’s satisfying to watch them fizzle, they turn your bath into fun colors, and they claim to provide aromatherapy benefits, too. They’re also much tidier than traditional bath salt products; just chuck one in and wait!
There’s no definite amount that’s appropriate for everyone, but the ratio of CBD to THC will indicate how psychoactive the product is and if it’s legal in your state. The more CBD compared with THC, the less of a high, and vice versa. “Managing psychoactivity is key to successful cannabis therapy,” says Lee. “Amounts should be made clear on the label and lab-certified so people know what’s helping them and what’s not.”
Great article! Excellent point by Matt, precisely why I found this article. I would just add that the CBD percentage in the extract can be significantly lower than even the 20%, but its probably fair to use that to give a rough idea how much CBD might be in an Amazon product, so divide the claimed percentage by 5!. Claims of up to 60% on Amazon are totally ludicrous, any concentration above 20% CBD become darker very viscous and the CBD starts to crystalize in the bottle! You would need to heat the bottle (which can damage the properties of the carrier oil) to re-liquidize! Also beware of Amazon reviews which are notorious for being fake. As author suggests, contact seller for full data sheets or seek a reputable supplier elsewhere that gives full transparency of information up front.
Roger, I’m not 100% certain on this, but I’m pretty confident that the difference here (and what makes it legal for people to sell it on Amazon) is that they are ONLY selling Hemp derived CBD vs. Cannabis derived CBD. Hence the “hemp extract” which is why the Farm Bill passing was such a big deal. As far as I’m aware, you can get CBD from both cannabis and hemp, but the hemp is legal federally. The bigger problem that I see is how misleading all of the amazon products are though because of these amazon regulations. All of the bottles I’ve seen only show the amount of “Hemp seed extract” (ex-2,500 mg Hemp Oil Extract) which is just like buying 2,500 mg of orange juice when I’m looking for vitamin c!

Other potential side effects include low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and drowsiness, but these have typically only occurred in patients who have exceeded doses of 1,500 mg daily for a period of 4 weeks or more; far more than the average person will need take on a daily basis for chronic pain symptoms. (In fact, the majority of CBD users claim they find an effective dose to be anywhere between 10 and 40 mg daily).
as long as it is ejuice (pg/vg) based then I’m sure using it in your tank or on your rda will work fine.. you may need new coils or atomizer cartridges after using it tho.. I’ve been vaping cbd juice in my rta like regular ejuice & it works just fine.. not rly sure about the effects.. maybe a little bit of a anti-inflammatory benefits & some anxiety/stress relief.. but i only just started vaping cbd’s & it’s supposed to take awhile for it to totally absorb your system for the effects to work optimally.. anyway.. if it helps you at all & can reduce your need for prescription drugs or other habit forming medications i say hi for it.. I’ve already quit smoking cigarettes by switching to vaping hopefully this will help me reduce another detriment to my health by not needing as much pain & anxiety medication
