Frequently Asked Questions
CBD is short for Cannabidiol, and is a type of chemical compound found in the Cannabis plants. CBD is widely popular for its calming and relaxing properties, and it has been known to help people suffering from anxiety, inflammation, chronic pain, depression and sleep-related disorders.
There are different ways of consuming CBD - while vaping CBD oils is the most popular way of using CBD, some prefer to ingest CBD as edibles, while others prefer applying it topically as creams.
Also, here’s some myth-busting for you - vaping CBD does not get you ‘high’, since CBD does not have any psychoactive properties by itself! The ‘high’ actually comes from a compound called THC. Most of the commercial CBD is extracted from ‘industrial hemp’ or Cannabis Sativa plant, which contains trace levels of THC.
CBD can be vaped using CBD vape juices, since they are specially formulated for inhalation/vaping of cannabidiol. CBD vape juices are created using CBD extracts, VG (vegetable glycerin), PG (propylene glycol), terpenes, and natural or food-grade flavoring ingredients.
Vaping CBD is similar to vaping a nicotine-based e-juice: you can either use a disposable CBD vape pen if you’re a beginner looking for an easy way. You can also vape CBD using CBD vape pods, or a refillable CBD vape pens.
CBD vape juices are either available as ready to vape CBD e-liquids or as CBD booster shots that can be added to your favorite e-liquids to give them a relaxing CBD spin!
Choosing what strength of CBD to vape depends on a couple of factors - whether you’re new to CBD or an experienced user, as well as the severity of symptoms you’re looking to relieve with CBD.
If you’re new to using CBD, we recommend starting out with the lowest dosage of CBD, and slowly working your way up if you prefer. This will give your body time to adjust to the effects of CBD, and will help you gauge the CBD strength that you’re comfortable with.
Here’s our quick and handy CBD calculator to check the strength that would work for you!
While people with mild levels of anxiety, sleep issues or mild pain may feel relief with lower doses of CBD, those with chronic pain, higher levels of anxiety and chronic insomnia may find better results with higher dosages - again, working your way up is a good idea even in this case.
As more and more studies legitimize CBD’s medicinal properties, it is slowly being legalized across various countries. As of today, CBD oils and supplements are legal in the UK, provided that it is extracted from select approved strains of cannabis that contain less than 0.2% of THC.
The US, on the other hand, has different laws for CBD production across its 50 states, with some states such as California and Washington legalizing the recreational and medicinal use of CBD, while other states prohibiting its production and use.
All of MIST UK’s CBD vape juices are extracted from 100% legal cannabis plants, and are crafted with a lip-smacking range of flavours for the ultimate CBD vape experience.
