One of the primary benefits of inhaling weed versus ingesting weed is that it offers a much higher bioavailability. Photo by: Gina Coleman/Weedmaps

A word on vaping and bioavailability

If any of your prescription medications come with a warning to avoid grapefruit on the label, chances are it will interact with CBD, and this interaction could be potentially dangerous. This is because the grapefruit warning signals that the medication is metabolized by a group called the cytochrome P450 enzymes. At high enough doses, CBD can temporarily deactivate these enzymes leading to increased levels of the drug in your bloodstream.

Taking CBD with other medications

Take for example a half-gram cartridge that contains approximately 75 servings and has a total 250 mg of CBD inside the cartridge. Divide 250 mg by 75 servings and you get about 3.33 mg of CBD per 3-second pull.

Contrary to popular belief, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD have a lot in common. They’re the most abundant cannabinoids found in cannabis plants and they both have the potential to help with anxiety. They even have the same chemical structure (the atoms are just arranged differently). The main difference between THC and CBD can be summed up in one word: intoxication.

While CBD won’t get you high or intoxicated, it may provide a sense of calm, relaxation, and well-being. Depending on the dose and the individual, CBD might have sleepy, relaxed, happy, or even energetic vibes. While there are no serious side effects reported with CBD, overconsumption can cause drowsiness.
