3 Reasons To Vape CBD Instead of Nicotine

3 Reasons To Vape CBD Instead of Nicotine

Vaping is on the rise - and is only expected to become more popular in the future. What’s also gaining popularity is the rise of vaping CBD as a healthier alternative to nicotine. 

Nicotine is a chemical found in tobacco - it is what makes smoking cigarettes so addictive. 

When swapping to vaping, away from cigarettes, you are already doing your body a big favour by reducing the amount of harmful chemicals entering the body via tobacco. Vaping doesn’t contain any tar or nasty poisons, unlike tobacco which can cause cancers and premature death. CBD, on the other hand, is a way of replacing the nicotine content in vaping and swapping it for a healthier choice. In fact, CBD is known for its medicinal properties and healing effects - essentially making vaping incredibly good for you. In this article we explain more about what nicotine is and why it could be beneficial to swap to a CBD alternative. 

What is Nicotine and How Does It Differ From Tobacco?

Nicotine is a compound derived from a plant (Nicotiana tabacum). It was first discovered in 1550, and the compound was obtained in purified form in 1828. In its pure state it is free from colour and odour and has a light liquid consistency. When it is exposed to air and light, it turns brown in colour and has a stronger odour, which we now know to be a tobacco odour.  

Nicotine is only one small element of the tobacco found in cigarettes, but it is the most addictive part. It works as a stimulant on the body but can cause toxic effects when too much is consumed, such as nausea and headache. Have you ever had a massive head rush from smoking cigarettes? That’s likely to be the nicotine. Nicotine also narrows the blood vessels and alters your hormones. Nicotine withdrawal causes agitation, physical symptoms like nausea and intense cravings that are hard to manage. 

Tobacco, on the other hand, is the cured, dried leaves from the Nicotiana tabacum plant. To inhale it, you must light it and inhale the smoke that comes from it, which is what introduces poisons and tars into the lungs and bloodstream. Cigarette companies have many dangerous chemicals in their tobacco, including nickel, arsenic and benzene. Smoking cigarettes is a cause of cancer and other diseases. 

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound derived from the cannabis plant. It is different to THC, which is another compound derived from the same plant. THC is the psychoactive element of cannabis (the bit that gets you stoned) and the CBD is the medicinal part. CBD is legal in most countries and will not physically harm your body (subject to ongoing research). 

CBD can be found in all sorts of forms. You can buy it in edibles such as gummies and lollipops, you can buy capsules, or you can get CBD vapes, such as CBD disposable vape pens. If you have skin problems, you can also get a range of topicals to run into the problem area. Many people swear by CBD as an all-round remedy. 

Differences between vaping CBD and Nicotine

Both CBD and nicotine can be found in vape pens - whether they are disposable or refillable. But there is a difference between the two. 

CBD is not physically addictive. Those who are addicted to nicotine will know how hard it is to go without nicotine for a period of time (such as a long flight, or during a long day at work). For that reason, CBD could be considered a healthier form of vaping, because there is no physical dependency, and you won’t get withdrawal symptoms if you stop vaping CBD.

CBD benefits the body whereas nicotine doesn’t. While nicotine does not do serious damage to your body, it does affect hormones and blood vessels and it does cause addiction. CBD not only does no harm but can improve your body’s overall health and wellness. CBD has been studied extensively and research is still ongoing, but it can potentially help with illnesses like epilepsy, depression, anxiety, Parkinson’s Disease, acne, chronic pain and PMT.

CBD balances the brain, whereas nicotine wires it. Nicotine is a stimulant, which can make us feel alert and awake, but then causes a crash later on requiring more nicotine. Some people report not being able to regulate their sleep cycles without dosing up on nicotine throughout the day. CBD on the other hand works with your endocannabinoid system, and helps to balance out the brain and body, giving you mental clarity and alertness without the wiring high.
