Can I Mix CBD with Nicotine?
If you currently vape nicotine based e-liquid and are starting to think about vaping CBD e-liquid for the first time, then there may undoubtedly be a few questions that you have on your mind.
Can you mix CBD with nicotine? What will happen if you combine CBD vape oil with your e-liquid? Can vaping CBD help with your nicotine addiction? What are the differences between CBD and nicotine? The curious and intricate world of CBD and nicotine interaction is definitely something that vapers should know more about – let’s delve on in and find out more.
Does CBD Have Nicotine in It?
The first thing you need to know is that neither, CBD E-liquid or CBD Oil contains any nicotine. Both products primarily use CBD extracted from the legal and industrial hemp plant – the key difference is the liquid that delivers the CBD to your system. CBD oil will typically use high quality and natural olive oil, whereas, CBD Eliquid will use the natural VG liquid that is found in the nicotine-based e-liquid that you may already be familiar with.
Can I Mix CBD with E-Liquid?
Similar to mixing strawberries with sugar syrup or tomatoes with treacle – yes you are able to mix CBD and e-liquid – however, in our opinion there should really be no need to and is not necessarily something that we would advise. Of course, we all have our own preferences, though our advice would be to keep it clean, keep it green and don’t mix your CBD E-liquid with your regular e-liquid because you’re just diluting the CBD.
In the case that you are thinking about mixing CBD with your e-juice, it’s of utmost importance to mix the right products. CBD Oil and CBD E-liquid are two very different products, intended for two very different purposes. It may be easier to find the right product for you before you experiment around.
As the name suggests CBD vape oil is used together with a vaporizer that has a refillable e-liquid chamber and will be the product that you will need to mix with your favourite e-juice. You can blend CBD e-liquid with either nicotine or nicotine-free e-liquid, but if your reasons for mixing CBD and e juice are for flavour, then the best option would be to choose a flavoured E-liquid or a Terpene infused vape oil.
Packing a tasty punch and available in numerous flavours, these nicotine-free CBD vape oils make a great alternative to the flavoured nicotine e-juice you’re used to. Quality CBD vape oil will use the best and most natural ingredients to complement the natural purity of the product, which will mean a high VG content in your CBD vape oil.
Be aware, that when you mix CBD vape oil with e-juice, your preferred e-juice may not be actually using the best ingredients, and maybe a lower quality to the CBD vape oil you’re mixing it with. As well as quality, your e-juice may be using PG liquid, which will thin the overall consistency of your final mixture.
The alternative to CBD E-liquid is the CBD sublingual oil, which is placed under the tongue or mixed with food and drink. Do not mix this with your e juice! The combination of CBD oil and e-liquid will leave a pretty bad taste in your mouth, not to mention clogged up coils in your vaporizer.
Wonder if cannabidiol oil with nicotine can be mixed in your system or if vaping CBD can help with nicotine addiction? Let's delve into the CBD interaction.
How To Mix CBD Oil With Vape Juice
There is a very simple answer to this question; you can’t mix CBD Oils with vape juice. Especially if you are thinking about mixing a CBD Oil tincture (like a hemp oil) with a conventional e-liquid, it just isn’t going to work.
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.
CBD Vape oils are designed specifically to be vapourised so that the integrity of the CBD is maintained and so it can be added to almost any conventional vape or juul. These products are a really quick way to get a dose of CBD on the move- the compounds are absorbed directly into the bloodstream from the lungs.
So, this blog post will hopefully help you understand how to make your own CBD e-liquid at home. If you don’t want the hassle, we have some great CBD vape oils in our shop for you to check out.
How To Make Your Own CBD E-Liquid | DYI CBD E-Liquid
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.:
- A Large Pan of Water
- A Large Beaker
Now here are the ingredients you will need:
- Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- CBD Isolate/Wax/Crumble or Concentrate (Organic & Lab Tested is best)
- Optional Flavouring
- Optional Nicotine Liquid.
Firstly, you need to fill your big pan or pot full of boiling water and put it on the heat. You want to have the heat on a low level so that the water is on a slow simmer.
You can then add your VG & PG into your beaker. Generally, to start with, it is suggested that the ratio should be 50/50 of each, but if you are an experienced DYI vape oil user, then you will already know the ratio that is best for you. Note; CBD doesn’t always stay in solution if the VG ratio is too high. The more you make your own DIY CBD e-liquid, the more you can play with the concentrations to get it perfect for you.
Now place the beaker of oil into the hot water.
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.
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.
Now Vape your DIY CBD Vape oil!
Easy right? This is a foolproof way to make your own CBD e-liquid at home. It is a great way to create something at home and get something that is perfect for your tastes. Getting the right dose and concentrations for you is a labour of love.
