To choose the right terpenes for your e-juice, you’ve got to figure out what flavors you want in your vaping session. Take a few moments to consider when and where you’re going to use your vaporizer and what kind of flavor experiences you want.
Finally, the moment has arrived; it’s time to make your first DIY CBD vape juice! Just keep in mind, this sample recipe is designed for 0.5 g of CBD isolate. Feel free to tweak this template as you gain more experience making CBD e-juices.
Anyone familiar with e-juices has probably run across the chemicals propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. These compounds are by far the most popular carrier oils used in CBD e-juices, so it’s crucial to understand the distinctions between the two.
Terrific Terpenes For Daytime Use
To take the complexity out of choosing your terpenes, we’ve compiled this list of the most popular aromatic compounds and their typical flavors. As always, we recommend experimenting with various terpenes until you find what works best for you.
Even if you flunked high school chemistry, we bet you won’t have too much difficulty making a flavorful batch of CBD e-juices. Simply follow the strategies listed below to start making steamy CBD vape oils.
For example, you probably don’t want a sleepy floral vape on your lunch break. Alternatively, it’s not a great idea to vape citrusy strains before you go to bed.
First and foremost, PG has a more liquid-like consistency versus VG. While this makes PG a bit easier to work with, it also tends to produce a harsh vape session. Most juices without CBD have higher VG percentages for a smoother vape.
If you are using a name brand CBD vape liquid from a reputable manufacturer, you’re likely getting a good product that is safe, inspected, laboratory approved, and healthy. If finding a reliable supplier is difficult, you may be best off creating your own product according to your own specifications.
At this point, it is time to make a decision. Are you going to add terpenes? If so you’re going to be delayed for a while. You’re only going to need 0.5 ml of a terpene in such a small quantity, and adding it doesn’t mean it automatically diffuses throughout. It is best to leave it for several hours so that it can disperse evenly.
Glycol is inexpensive and feels more like traditional smoking when you inhale. About 20% of e-liquids are made with Glycerol instead because it is sweeter tasting, provides a smoother inhale, and produces more vapour. These are desirable features for some users. You can experiment, of course, and you might find that a mix of 80% propylene glycol and 20% glycerol provides your best experience or it might be 50/50. Remember—you’re the chemist here—you get to decide!
Measure your CBD
Whatever the reason you now have the knowledge and a list of needed tools so that you can be your own chemist, making it precisely the way you desire. There’s a reason that people love Mum’s homemade dinners over-and-above what you can get in a restaurant, or the frozen dinner section of your local shop. Sometimes there is simply nothing better than doing it yourself!
So, if you have ever made a dumpling, or biscuit, or homemade soup, you are already a chemist! That means you probably already possess the skills required for making your own CBD e liquid.
Aside from that, you may want a stronger or milder product than is typically available. Maybe you love spearmint vanila flavour, and no one makes that…
In your clean container add your 30 ml of plain, unflavoured vape fluid. Set it on a mild heat source (such as in a shallow pan of very hot tap water) for several minutes until it is well above room temperature. Suggested Caution: do not microwave the vape fluid as it can quickly overheat and vaporize suddenly—be gentle—you’re in no rush.
