How Much CBD Should I Vape?

CBD vape oil does not come with a recommended serving size, which can make it difficult for a beginner to know how many drags to take off a vape pen. Without direction, one may be left wondering if they are taking too few or too many pulls. When it comes to vaping CBD, we want to achieve the desired results without overusing (or burning) the vape oil.

How Much CBD Should I Vape?

You will find that CBD retailers do not provide serving sizes for CBD vape oil because there is not a standard serving size. As you will find with all CBD products, the serving size for vape oil is dependent upon the person vaping. Some require higher quantities of CBD; others need only a small amount of CBD to be effective. While there is not a definitive answer to this inquiry, we can provide recommendations to help you uncover the right serving size.

Our Recommendation

While we cannot determine exactly how much CBD you should vape, we can explain the best practice for discovering a suitable serving size.

When introducing CBD vape oil into your system, we recommend starting low. One to two drags is a good starting point. After pulling the vapor from the pen, make sure to inhale the vapor to get it into your system. Continue with this serving size for a few days, making sure to note how you feel afterward. The effects of vaping CBD are nearly immediate, so you should consider how you feel within a few minutes of vaping.

If the results are not as you expected, increase the number of drags by one. Continue this process until the desired effects are reached.

Some Considerations

There are many variations to vaping. For example, the depth of your drag will affect how much CBD enters your system. A lengthier pull will introduce more CBD into your system as opposed to a short pull. You can try to keep your drags consistent or experiment with different drag lengths.

The situation can also determine how much CBD is required. You may require more CBD in a situation where you are targeting a specific concern. As you are uncovering how much CBD to vape, it will be beneficial to note how you are feeling before vaping as well.

Additionally, our products do not contain nicotine or THC. Both ingredients have an influence on the body and should be considered (if present) when determining serving size.

The Alternate Vape products do contain an MCT oil base. If you are using an Alternate Vape CBD oil, be sure not to take three pulls in quick succession to avoid burning the oil.

Can I Vape Too Much CBD Oil?

Currently, there are no recorded side effects of vaping CBD. Some have reported drowsiness when consumed in excess. Considering this, increasing your serving size of CBD should not raise concern.

Determining CBD Vape Oil Serving Size

Over time, you will recognize how much CBD you need to vape depending on the situation. While adding CBD to your routine is, at first, a learning process, many find the benefit to be worth the initial curve.
