CBD Vape vs Tincture: What’s the Deal?

We are always getting questions about our CBD  vape products here at Chronik, so we thought that we’d start a weekly column to answer some of the more common questions we come across in hopes that it will help others who are looking for the same information.  Be it CBD Vape ejuice or otherwise, we’ll do our best to answer.

With that said, let’s kick off the first of our series “What’s the Deal?” with a question we get a lot:

What’s the deal with e-juices and tinctures?  Can I ingest e-juice? Can I vape a tincture?

When starting Chronik, I must admit that this isn’t a question I would have thought up myself.  But after hearing from a few people, it seems as if there’s some confusion about what the differences are between the two.

Let’s start with an e-liquid.  Your typical e-juice is made out of Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol and naturally derived flavorings.  In the case of our Chronik Vape juices, we also add a healthy dose of CBD to make it a CBD vape.

But that is it, there isn’t anything else in there and all of the ingredients are non-toxic.  This means that you could technically ingest e-juice like you would a tincture without any ill effects.  Though as we all know, just because something is possible, it doesn’t mean that we should do it.

Tinctures on the other hand are usually made from a base oil (like hemp oil, coconut oil, olive oil, etc..) flavorings and CBD.  Tinctures are meant to be consumed and have had their flavor and texture tuned to be pleasing.

The base oils that used to make it are not meant to be vaped though.  It wouldn’t be toxic, but also might not burn well, while tasting pretty horrible to boot.

So, as you can see, you can ingest an e-liquid, but you can’t vape a tincture.

As I said earlier though, you probably want to use each for its intended purpose. Both products are made with a specific use in mind and it will usually be a better experience for the user to only vape their CBD e-liquid and ingest their tinctures.

I’ve heard stories of people ingesting vape liquid because they didn’t have access to anything else and having good results.  CBD vape juice is a new thing, and we’re learning more about it from our customers every day.

We really think that CBD is the start of a new movement in self-care and wellbeing that is just getting going.  And the best place for information about these products and how they work is from the people who are using them and benefiting from them today.

As we go forward I hope to bring some of the best questions and experiences from our customers forward to this audience to hopefully further all of our knowledge and help as many people as possible benefit from this truly remarkable substance.

Please feel free to reach out to us anytime with your own stories of success with CBD and vaping, as well as whatever questions you might have about our products or CBD in general.  We’re always here to serve you and hopefully make your journey a little easier in the process.
