How Much CBD Should I Vape?

Published on

When starting my CBD oil journey, I wondered how much CBD should I vape, once I learned e-cigarette vape liquid to be the most effective (and enticing) method for me.  Really it depends on your vape device.  Isn't vaping CBD the best?  It’s easy to do in public, it works fast, and you can control how much CBD you're getting in your system throughout the day. It can be a little intimidating with all of the different options, though. There are a lot of different kinds of e-cigarettes and e-liquids, where do you start with dosing?

When figuring out how much CBD you should vape, you have to consider how long it might take you to get through a cartridge as well as the level of CBD in the oil. If you have a cartridge that is 200 milligrams in one milliliter, the average puff will yield 2 milligrams of CBD per puff.  When you are just starting out, it's important to keep your daily dose under 10 milligrams until your body has acclimated. From then on, you raise the levels gradually until you reach the point of relief.

How To Tell How Much MG in E-Liquid

It is almost impossible to tell how much CBD you get with each puff without watching each person through a microscope while they do it. It’s a good idea to monitor how long it takes to go through a milliliter of e-liquid to gauge for yourself how much you are dosing CBD.

The dosing differs between the type of e-cigarette, how long you are drawing the vapor, and how long you are holding it in. If you are just starting out, the best thing to do is get a starter kit that comes with an e-cig and replaceable cartridges. The starter kits we sell in our shop are between 100 and 180 puffs per milliliter, which is pretty easy math to figure out how much CBD is in each puff.

If it only takes you 100 puffs to get through a 100-milligram cartridge that is 1 milliliter, you would be getting 1 milligram of CBD in each inhale. If it were 180 puffs,  you would get 0.55 milligrams in each inhale if you hit it the same way the same time with no malfunctions or alterations to your e-cigarette. Like stated before, using these calculations is just for a general idea of how much CBD oil you’re getting in each puff. If you are looking for a more exact dose, according to our CBD Dosage Chart, using CBD tinctures or pills are an easier way to be as precise as possible.

Once you get the hang of this whole vaping thing, you’ll be able to get customizable e-cigarettes you can modify to fit your smoking style. Just keep in mind the number of puffs will change with every change to the e-cigarette you make.

How Much CBD Should I Take?

Now that we know how to figure out how to dose, how much CBD oil should you aim to take? Before you make any decisions, it is essential to consult your doctor before adding any medicinal changes to your routine. If you are taking any medication, there is a possibility that it can interfere with what CBD is trying to do for your body. Safety always comes first, even before enlightenment.

Once you get the go-ahead from your awesome doctor, you will probably already know that you need to start at a low dose. It can be dangerous putting large amounts of anything into your system. Just think about how too much caffeine can affect the body! Even in high volumes, CBD is well-tolerated, however you just never know with your body, so better play it safe.

A low dose would be less than 3 milligrams per sitting. If you have anxiety or pain, you might start feeling relief in minutes after taking your first dose as so many have. It is commonly recommended to start yourself with around 10 milligrams per day until you feel your body has acclimated and there are no adverse reactions. Gradually raise your milligram level over a few weeks to keep an eye on any side-effects.

How Long Should I Hold a Hit of Cannabis or CBD?

It's a myth that holding smoke or vapor in your lungs after a hit makes the CBD or THC more effective.  What you're actually doing is depriving your brain of oxygen!  Instead, try to take a puff and inhale air afterward.  Learn more about how long to hold smoke in your lungs and remember to breathe!

  • Hey Brian,
    It really depends on how much CBD you are getting in your hit and it can vary from person to person. Generally, it can last for a few hours at a high dose.
    Hope this has helped!

  • How long does a hit last and how many times a day should I take a hit?

  • Hey K!

    In one gram of CBD flower, 10-15% would be .1 to .15mg in the entire gram. So, this would be a small amount of CBD. If you finish a gram in 20 hits, at most, you would be getting around .0075mg of CBD.

    Hope this has helped!
