Everyone and their mother has heard of CBD and vape pens. Soon enough, our grandmothers are going to be telling us about the terpene profile of their carts. With the gain of popularity, it’s even more important to stay educated and make informed purchases. So, what should you look for in CBD vape pens at Los Angeles Dispensaries? Roots LA has you covered!
How Do I Choose a CBD Vape Pen?
The first step to choosing the perfect vape pen is to know your needs. Are you looking for something disposable or long-lasting? Are you in the market for a battery and a cartridge or a handheld device? Figuring out these questions will be a guiding light on your journey.
Full-Spectrum or Broad-Spectrum?
The second factor to consider when choosing a vaporizer is whether or not you’re looking for full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD. Basically, broad-spectrum CBD varieties have no trace amounts of THC. Full-spectrum will have traces of THC and could potentially show up on a drug test.
Both of these varieties will have different effects, flavors, and terpene profiles. It’s essential to ask your budtender and try a few brands out to get a feel of what works for you.
Avoid Harmful Ingredients
Unfortunately, not all CBD products are created equal. The rise in popularity has attracted brands who may not be doing their due diligence to ensure a quality product. No matter, as a consumer, you can choose products that are right for you.
Always check the ingredients on any product you’re purchasing. You’ll want to avoid ingredients such as propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), MCT oil, or polyethylene glycol (PEG).
Remember, CBD comes from a plant. It’s a simple natural product with many benefits. The more ingredients and additives reduce and complicate things. While some may not be directly harmful, why would you want to ruin a good thing?
Consider The Dosage
Another factor to consider is potency. Although CBD products won’t create cerebral highs like THC, it’s best to consider your tolerance and the correct dosage.
If you have low tolerance, it’s best to stay on the safe side. Dosing guides vary on weight, but a low dose to start with would be around 10-15mg. If you weigh a bit more or have a higher tolerance, 20-25mg would be a good starting point.
Remember, you can always add more but can’t take it away. It’s best to stay on the safe side until you feel for the product and your tolerance. Be sure to consult the budtenders and dosing guides on the packaging.
