How to Use a CBD Vape Additive?

Most people think that vaping is all about consuming nicotine and using it as an alternative to traditional cigarettes. Frequent vapers have found that vaping can even be a functional activity.

CBD companies have understood this and stepped up to the expectations by producing high-quality CBD vape products that include CBD in vape juices as a functional ingredient. Making it more than just a way to consume nicotine or fill your palate with a delicious e-juice flavor.

The thing is:

Even if there is a lot of work put behind CBD vape juices, the frequent vaper will probably have a favorite e-juice already. Changing it might take more than just the promise of CBD in an alternative vape juice.

Especially when you understand that e-liquids made by different companies are likely to have a different formula that alters the taste, even if the flavors are supposed to be the same. Especially so when you add CBD into the mix.  

CBD extracts used in vape juices often have a strong herbal scent and flavor to them. This may cause the end product to stray far from what you might be used to when consuming your favorite e-juice flavor.

That’s where a CBD vape additive may come in handy.

What Is a CBD Vape Additive?

CBD vape additives are vape oils with a dose of CBD in the formula that have been designed specifically to mix well with other vape juices. CBD additives are the best way to enhance existing vape juices with the potential benefits and effects of CBD without the need of changing your favorite e-juice and flavor.

CBD vape additives should and are meant to be designed so they do not alter the consistency, scent, or flavor of the base e-juice. They are also produced with formulas that should not dilute the original mix of your e-juice.

At Hemmfy you’ll be able to find a vast variety of CBD vape additives from some of the industry’s best brands.

But CBD vape additives are not necessarily used with other e-juices that lack the cannabinoid in their formula. A CBD additive may also be used to enhance the potency of your favorite CBD vape juice if you feel like you require a bit more kick to it. This is a step usually taken by frequent consumers who have a higher tolerance for CBD.

CBD vape additives can be found with as many different formulations as you would vape juices. Usually using a 40/60 VG/PG ratio and hemp-derived CBD for a better experience.  At Hemmfy we strive to only provide you with the best CBD vape juices in the market, like the all-vegan, non-GMO, full-spectrum Rix Mix CBD Vape Additive.

As opposed to raw hemp oil and other hemp concentrates, CBD vape additives should not be vaped on their own. They are specifically formulated to be mixed with another vape juice, which means that using them as vaping oils could damage the product’s formula and cause unwanted effects.

What to Check For When Buying a CBD Vape Additive?

There are several things you need to be looking for when shopping for a CBD vape additive. Although vape additives are not vape juices per se, the things you should be looking for are not that different from those to look for when purchasing regular vape juices. 

But in the case of CBD vape additives, you might want to consider a few others, taking into account that CBD is sourced from hemp. That said, let’s take a deeper look into what we’re talking about:

1. Organically-Sourced

Hemp can be grown like any other crop, using organic processes and avoiding pesticides or other potentially harmful substances. But it can also be grown using synthetic materials, harmful chemicals, and other things that you do not want in a plant that is going to be the source of the most important raw material in your product; CBD.

Organic Hemp

You want to make sure that the brand you buy your CBD vape additive from specifically calls out their product as an all-natural or organic product. And remember, there’s a difference between all-natural and just using natural ingredients here and there. So make sure those are the call-outs on the label or product description. 

If the company is using organic farming techniques, they are sure to let you know. So it should be an easy-to-find piece of information on your product.

2. Third-Party Lab Testing

Lab reports are important because they ensure the quality and safety of the CBD vape additive that you’re about to put in your body. So are Certificates of Authenticity (COA).

If your CBD vape additive has a lab report, one thing you want to make sure of is that it is a third-party lab test issuing the report. Some companies own testing facilities, which means that the lab-test results may be biased, and that’s something you can bypass altogether only by making sure that the brand you buy your product from uses a third-party lab. 

Third-party labs are their own entities. Which means that they have a  reputation to look out for and are more likely to provide test results that don’t lean towards a goal. Not to say that there aren’t companies that are honest about their test results, but if you have the option then you might as well.

The certificate of authenticity, or COA, shares a similar purpose. With a COA you’ll be able to understand what ingredients are found in your product, hence, what ingredients you’ll be consuming and in what quantities.

This information should be found on the product listing page or access to it could be shared on the product label directly with a QR code.

3. Popular Brands

Popular brands usually mean that they are trustworthy when it comes to both the quality and safety of their products. At Hemmfy you’ll be able to further assure that quality and safety because we curate our product lineup to ensure you get only the best product in the market. Make sure to visit our CBD vape additive collection and browse through the best-selling items.

4. VG/PG Ratio

The VG/PG ratio of your CBD additive is important because it will determine the type of vaping you can do. The same goes for the vape juice itself.

The higher the VG content, the better the mix will be for sub-OHM or DTL vaping. If VG and PG content is the same or there is a higher content of PG, then it’s likely that your product is more suitable for MTL vaping.

How to Use a CBD Vape Additive

Now that you know exactly what you should be looking for during your CBD vape additive shopping session, we just need to learn how to use it. Luckily, using a CBD additive is a pretty straightforward process:

1. Measure CBD Dose & Fill Dropper

First, you’ll want to calculate how much CBD you’re getting per dropper. This information is usually provided on the label of the product by the manufacturer. If it isn’t, then just calculate how much CBD would be in 0.05ml of e-juice depending on the strength of the product you buy. A drop of e-juice contains around 0.05ml of product, so if you can figure out how much CBD goes into each drop, then you’ll know exactly how much CBD you’re adding to the mix.

Fill Vape Additive

Once you’ve done that, simply squeeze the end of the dropper and fill it with the CBD vape additive. Depending on the amount of CBD you want, you may use the whole dropper or just a portion of it.

2. Fill Tank With Vape Juice & CBD Additive

Start by removing the vape cart from your pen. Depending on the type of pen and brand you’re using, the design of the cart or pod will vary. 

If the vape tank has already been filled, just top it off with some CBD additive. If you have the opportunity of starting from scratch, the best way to do it is to use the CBD vape additive first and then continue filling the vape cart with the vape juice. This way you can make sure that you don’t run out of space in the tank by adding too much e-juice before you can use the CBD additive.

3. Replace Car In Vape Device If Needed

Once you’ve filled the vape cart, just place it back on your device and start vaping. Cartridges are usually placed on vape devices by screwing the top onto the device or using magnetic rings that help you to easily snap the cap back on.

The knowledge around CBD and other cannabis-derived products is growing and constantly changing, as does their legal status. Hence, we recommend checking with your local authorities and a licensed physician prior to consumption.
