I love the acts of vaping and smoking, but I’m not always looking to get high. I’m not looking to smoke cigarettes or consume other types of tobacco products, either.
Fortunately, I had a revelation while consuming my nightly CBD oil. What if I smoked or vaped CBD? I told a friend about my idea and they recommended a small Boulder-based hemp extract company that sold CBD vape oil.
In exchange for an honest review, Bluebird Botanicals sent me over a 1,000mg bottle of their CBD Vape oil to test out. They also offer a smaller 333 mg bottle for a fraction of the price.
Unfortunately, the company discontinued their vape kits, so you’ll have to find a vape pen for oil from another supplier if you don’t have one already. For this review, I used the VaporFi Air 2 Mini Vaporizer to consume the oil.
Combined with the vaporizer, the oil really helps me fulfill that urge to smoke or vape without needing to smoke cannabis as I normally would. Too often, I get preoccupied with the concept of smoking that I forget how much cannabis I actually consume. Before I know it, I’m outside looking at the different shapes the clouds are making when I should be working… whoops. That’s why I recommend to this product to cannabis consumers who have always been smokers of all sorts, just like myself.
I also get to reap the benefits of medicinal cannabis without consuming THC. Typically, edible (non-vape) CBD oil knocks me out and puts me to sleep. However, that’s not the case with this vape oil. In fact, it keeps me awake and attentive, which is ideal for my work as a self-employed writer. The oil also combats my anxiety, and has the potential to bring me down from a head high if I’ve consumed too much THC (similar to Bhang’s chewing gum).
Leafly even recommends vaping CBD rather than ingesting it, because you can feel the affects 30 to 60 minutes faster. By vaping, CBD enters your lungs and therefore, your bloodstream directly--“allowing nearly four times as much CBD to enter your circulation”--much more quickly and efficiently.
However, you will have to determine which dosage is right for you through a process of trial and error like other CBD products.
Overall, I recommend this product to those looking for a good vape oil to replace the urge to smoke, especially if it’s cigarettes.
