Google's most asked CBD vape questions of 2022 

Navigating the cannabis world can be straight up confusing. There's so many different options, buzz-words, and industry jargon that sometimes it can feel overwhelming. In this article, we tried to breakdown the most frequently asked questions on google regarding one specific part of the cannabis world, CBD vapes, so you can find everything you need in one place. 

What is a CBD vape cartridge? 


Not to be confused with CBD e-juice, a CBD vape cartridge, or cart for short, is a 510 threaded cartridge that has been pre-filled with high CBD percentage cannabis extract. They come in gram and half gram sizes and are popular for being the cleanest, most potent way to vape CBD.

Generally, they contain about 75% CBD and are blended with other cannabis compounds like terpenes and minor cannabinoids. They're available in different strains such as Blue Dream and Strawnanna that are decided based on what other cannabis compounds are mixed in with the CBD extract.

How do you use a CBD cart? 


One of the best things about cartridges is that they’re easy to use. All you have to do is buy a 510 vape battery, screw in your cart, and inhale. Our batteries are inhale-activated and set to the perfect voltage, but if you happen to purchase a variable voltage battery, check out our setting recommendations here. If you find your cartridge isn't working, it is likely because the vape battery isn't working correctly, in which case we suggest you make sure it is sufficiently charged and check the manufacturers instructions to ensure you're operating it correctly. The other reason vapes can stop working is because they are clogged. To unclog your cartridge, try using a paper-clip to scrape out the vape oil, or taking a longer drag to heat up the oil and loosen it up a bit.

How strong are CBD vapes? 


Most pre-filled carts range from 300-450 mg CBD per half gram, and 600-900 per gram. An average hit from a cart can distribute anywhere between 1-4 mg of CBD. It’s hard to get it down to an exact science, but for most people 5 to 6 medium sized hits is a good session to get the most out of the experience. If it’s your first time, it never hurts to start with small pulls and give yourself time to see how you feel before redosing. Everyone reacts differently to different doses, so giving yourself some room to experiment and find out what works best for you is never a bad idea. 


Do CBD cartridges actually do anything? 


Not for everyone. Vaping CBD is the quickest way to absorb it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you will feel something from the dose afterward. Most people do feel something though, with the spectrum of experience ranging from mild relaxation, to powerful relief. If you don’t believe us, check out our reviews. While CBD vapes aren’t intended to be used for any therapeutic or medicinal purposes, there is some promising research regarding the potential effects of CBD, which you can check out here: 



How long does a CBD vape take to work? 


Compared to smoking herb, edibles, tinctures, and topicals, vapes are the most bioavailable way to consume cannabis. This is just a long winded way of saying vaping THC and CBD is the quickest way to feel it’s effects. After inhaling, you can start to feel the sensations within one to ten minutes. If you’re new to carts, you’re likely to feel it quicker than a regular user. Keep in mind that CBD is more subtle than delta-8 as it doesn’t produce a high, so it’s possible you may only feel a slight difference in your mood, and in some cases none at all. 


Are CBD cartridges legal? 


In short, yes. The long answer is a bit more nuanced. 


CBD cartridges are federally legal as long as they contain less than 0.3% delta-9 THC. 


Where it gets tricky is that some states have created laws that oppose this. As of right now, Idaho, Nebraska, and North Dakota have restrictions in place and some states might require a medical card.  For this reason, it’s best to check with your state’s current laws to ensure that you’re making an up to date decision before making a purchase. 


Do CBD cartridges get you high? 


CBD is non-intoxicating, so no. Cartridges must contain less than 0.3% delta-9 THC to be legal, so to inhale enough to produce a high would mean smoking a nearly whole half gram cart in one sitting. 


There are, however, delta-8 cartridges, such as our Martian Candy Carts, that also contain high amounts of CBD and are legal in most places. These do produce a high and are about 60-70% as strong as traditional marijuana vapes. 


So if you're not looking for a buzz, make sure you double check and make sure you’re not ordering a delta-8 vape instead of a CBD vape. Nobody likes an unintended high! 


Do CBD vapes show up on drug tests? 


Yes, all full spectrum CBD products contain a small amount of THC which makes it possible to fail a drug test. If you have an upcoming drug test and are thinking about using a CBD cart, we recommend playing it safe. 


What’s the best place to buy CBD carts? 


There’s three main things to look at when buying CBD: lab tests, ingredients, and brand reputation. In most cases, for most people, it can be really hard to determine any of these things in a retail store setting. That’s why we think the best place to buy is online, where you can see reviews, test results, and more information about the product you’re interested in before buying. Not to mention, you can get your carts delivered straight to your door and usually at a better price. 


We have some of the most highly reviewed full spectrum CBD cartridges on the internet. They contain high amounts of CBD and CBG, and are made with two simple ingredients: hemp extract and cannabis-derived terpenes.

How long does a cannabis vape cartridge last?


That depends on a few things. 


  • How frequently you’re vaping
  • How large of hits you’re taking 
  • What size cartridge you’re using

There are about 175 two to three second hits in a half gram cartridge. So if you hit your vape around 5 times a day, then it should last you anywhere from two weeks to a month. If you’re ripping it consistently throughout the day and have a hard time keeping count, then it could last less than a week. 


The best way to maximize how long your cart lasts is to make sure you use a low temperature setting on your cartridge battery and limit your intake. A good voltage is 2.7-3.3V to minimize temperature. It’s easy to get carried away with vapes because they’re so convenient, so remember that sometimes less is more with most things cannabis. 



Is it safe, or healthy to vape CBD oil?


To fully answer this question we first have to address that there’s a distinction between CBD oil and CBD vape oil. CBD oil is used to refer to a tincture meant to be consumed orally with droppers. If you’re wondering if it’s safe to vape something that is meant to be swallowed, we would say probably not for that reason. 


CBD vape oil is distinct from regular oil because it is processed in a particular way to make it conducive to being vaporized. If you try to vape a tincture, you’re probably just going to break your battery device, potentially hurt yourself, and waste some good product. 


Okay, now that that’s out the way we can address what we think others might be meaning to ask, which is: Is vaping CBD vape oil healthy, or safe? 


It’s generally considered safe and has few mild side-effects. To minimize health risks, the best thing you can do is purchase from a vendor with third-party lab tests and authentic reviews. Apart from that, avoiding consuming too much of any vape device will always lower your chances of experiencing adverse effects.


Side-effects can include 


  • Dizziness
  • Cotton Mouth
  • Nausea 
  • Tiredness 

What is the best volt setting for a CBD, or THC vape?


It depends on your preference. 


To preserve flavor, terpenes, and avoid too large of a hit, go with a low voltage. For a stronger, more potent hit, go with a medium to high range. 


Really low voltage (2.5V - 3.0V)


Ideal for beginners and those who really prioritize flavor, this voltage range produces a slow pull and fully preserves the flavor of the concentrate. This means you’ll have to take longer hits to get the same mg content as other settings, but it definitely has its place. 


Pretty low voltage (3.0V - 3.3V)


For a more full and potent hit, this range is still great for beginners, but it offers a larger dose in a shorter period of time. As it’s still a low voltage, this is a sweet spot for balancing flavor and function.


If you want to take it up a notch from there, there’s medium voltages. Depending on the quality of cartridge battery you have, this range can produce a large dose while keeping most of the terpenes intact. 


Medium voltage (3.0V - 3.7V) 


3.7V is a popular voltage. It’s about as high as you can go without risking burning away some flavor and potentially having a nasty throat hit, or just vaping too large of a dose. This means you get the biggest hit possible and a blast of flavor as well. 


High voltage (3.7V-4.8V) 


If you’re trying to get as smacked as possible, this is all you. In this range there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to lose a decent amount of your flavor profile and potentially even some cannabinoids, but higher doses take priority for some people and there’s nothing wrong with that. Plus, who doesn’t like blowing a fat cloud every once in a while?

Can you ingest CBD vape oil?


You can ingest just about anything, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. CBD e-juice often contains propylene glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, and other artificial chemicals for flavoring. It probably wouldn’t put you in the hospital, but why would you want to swallow something that’s not meant to be swallowed? 


CBD distillate, on the other hand, is often used in edibles and can be ingested raw to full effect. This form of vape oil is what’s used in pre-filled cartridges and is generally blended with terpenes, and other minor cannabinoids. Because the distillate is decarboxylated, meaning the CBD has been activated, you can feel the effects from swallowing distillate. Thus, you can generally safely ingest what’s inside a CBD cart. 


Is CBD vape oil darker than THC oil?


Not necessarily. Both THC vape oil and CBD vape oil vary in color from light gold to amber-brownish depending on a number of factors such as ingredients and how it has been processed. Darker colored cartridges tend to be full spectrum and contain natural plant matter, while lighter colored carts tend to be more refined. Color generally isn’t a sign of quality, unless it is so dark you can’t see through it. All distillate in pre-filled cartridges should be see-through when held up to light. 


Can you vape CBD when pregnant? 


Experts do not consider it safe to use any cannabis product while pregnant. While there’s some controversy surrounding this, we think it’s best to avoid all weed and CBD when pregnant, or breastfeeding.
