The cost of cigarettes for the average American smoker is $38 a week. Over the course of a year, this leads to roughly $10’000. But is vaping going to be a cheaper alternative? Well, it depends on how much you currently smoke. The more you smoke, the more you’ll vape, which means the more vape oil you’ll need to stock up on.

While the cost starting to vape may be quite more than a packet of cigarettes, once you’ve started vaping you will find your wallet will be a lot happier. To begin with, a good vaporizer will probably cost around $60. After that, though you will only need to spend maybe between 10 or 15 dollars a week for the maintenance of the vaporizer along with the oil itself.

However, it’s sure to last you a good few years if you look after it well.

CBD Vape Oil – Is it for You?

CBD oil (an abbreviation for Cannabidiol) has increased in popularity in recent months due to studies indicating that it contains medical therapeutics. CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant, but it doesn’t contain any psychoactive effects (doesn’t makes you high). There are many ways to ingest CBD such as through CBD-infused topical creams, tinctures, CBD-infused food, beverages, capsules/pills, and more. However, CBD vape oil is increasing in popularity more so because people who have used it describe it as having an almost instantaneous effect.

Vaping CBD is said to be a quick and prolonged effect in treating a range of ailments due to the possible therapeutic effects it holds. Many use CBD vape oil to reduce anxiety, pain, depression and to promote a good nights sleep. However, with all of this being said, it’s important to note that preclinical and clinical studies are still ongoing when it comes to cannabis, CBD oil and vaping, as we are still unsure about the possible side effects.

If you are already using a different method of consuming CBD, it could be worth trying the vaping method. This is because studies have indicated that vaping CBD maximizes the effects of it. For example, CBD edibles, pills and capsules go through your digestive tract and can take up to an hour for it to enter your bloodstream. Vaping, on the other hand, enters your lungs and is directly diffused into your bloodstream. To add, this makes distribution more effective.

Vape oil from a registered vendor only contains 4 ingredients. These are vegetable glycerin, food-grade flavoring, propylene glycol, and sometimes nicotine or CBD. Of course not inhaling anything into your body is probably the safest thing but switching to vaping is still undeniably better than cigarettes. But, if you’re looking to treat an ailment, or you just want to feel more relaxed during a busy day, CBD oil might be an option for you. Vaping CBD allows you to play around with, test and control your dosages. While there’s no definite answer to how much CBD should you take, it means that it’s all down to trial and error and how it reacts with your body. In saying this, it’s better to start with lower doses and work your way up slowly. It’s even better if you consult your local physician or other medical professionals for a better indication of what is best.

Keep in mind that, while you still are not allowed to vape everywhere in public space, compared to smoking you have a lot more freedom. Finally, making the switch from smoking to vapes is only one step in helping you kick the habit. Talk to your doctor to seek further advice and discuss what vaping device will be right for you with a registered vendor.
