CBD Vaping: A Complete Guide
Vaping CBD oil is an attractive option for many CBD users. With tons of options to choose from in terms of flavor, concentration, and equipment, vaping CBD is a method that gives the user a great amount of personal choice. Using CBD alone also won’t produce the “high” from THC (a different cannabinoid) that is unfortunately still illegal in many places.
When deciding to vape CBD, there is a lot to learn about the differences between types of concentrates (more about that in our blog post here ), but if you’re thinking about vaping CBD, look no further for a complete guide to CBD vaping.
What Is CBD?
First things first, let’s go over what CBD actually is.
The substance’s proper name is cannabidiol, and it comes from the hemp plant we know as cannabis sativa. Unlike its relative, THC, CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive effects.
CBD is often used in products like oils or edibles made for consumption or inhalation i.e., vaping. People use CBD for a number of reasons. Though we can’t make any medical claims, there’s tons of research looking to connect the dots between CBD and stress relief, relaxation, chronic illness symptom relief, and pain relief.
Thus far, CBD itself has only been found to benefit people. As a natural substance found in a plant, users are typically more comfortable with ingesting and inhaling CBD products instead of manmade medicines.
Hemp vs. Weed
Cannabis sativa has two main species: weed and hemp. Though these are often used interchangeably, they are two distinct species with different qualities. Both plants contain CBD, but hemp has a lot more than weed. Hemp also has a very low concentration of THC compared to weed.
Cannabinoids are not present in hemp oil, though people might think so. Hemp oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant, unlike CBD oil which comes from the plant itself.
Can You Smoke Hemp Oil?
Smoking hemp oil products is always an option, but they’re different from CBD oil. If you’re wondering about the benefits of hemp oil, take a look at the beauty section of a natural-themed store. You may find hemp oil in beauty products or lotions due to its moisturizing qualities. Again, hemp oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant instead of the plant itself.
Can You Smoke CBD?
You can use a portable dab pen like the Dr. Dabber Stella , or burn dried hemp plant directly in a joint to smoke CBD. Both options create at least some form of smoke to inhale. Smoking is not only the most bioavailable option (meaning that your body will utilize the most CBD possible), but it also has the most immediate effect on users, working in just a few minutes.
When smoking CBD, the substance in the form of smoke goes from the lungs to the bloodstream almost immediately, and then travels around your body. Within three minutes of smoking CBD, the cannabinoid reaches its highest concentration in your plasma.
Can You Vape Tincture?
Before purchasing any cannabidiol vape products, it’s important to understand how to vape safely. A common confusion that people come across when deciding to start vaping is the difference between CBD tincture and CBD oil.
CBD oil and CBD tincture are often used interchangeably, depending on the context. When most people think of CBD oil, they think of a small bottle containing a mixture of CBD and other ingredients, similar to an essential oil.
However, there is a big difference between oils and tinctures. By definition, CBD oil refers to CBD-rich hemp flower extract. CBD tincture refers to a finished product that contains CBD oil along with other ingredients, such as flavoring.
The difference is that CBD concentrate, or oil, only contains the substances that are naturally part of the cannabis flower. CBD tinctures, alternatively, feature ingredients that could hurt the lungs if inhaled. The packaging can be confusing, but the difference is there.
The answer to the above question is always no. While vaping CBD tinctures may seem appealing due to their flavoring and portability, doing so can cause significant damage to your lungs. The distinction between vaping versus ingesting CBD oil is very important to understand.
Can You Smoke Hemp Oil In A Vape Pen?
By definition, you technically won’t be smoking, but you can vape hemp oil in a vape pen. Dab pens like the Dr. Dabber Ghost and Dr. Dabber Light are perfect for this.
The purpose of a vaporizer is to take a liquid and turn it into vapor to be ingested. CBD is just one substance that can be vaped, along with hemp oil.
It’s important to note that if you do decide to vape CBD, make sure to find a safe vape pen that is reputable. The Dr. Dabber CBD line, for example, is made with US grown hemp and designed with the highest quality ingredients. All cartridges are lab tested for quality and we include batch-specific lab results not only on each cartridge’s product page on our website, but also on all CBD packaging via QR code. We launched our CBD line in 2019 with the marketing campaigns, “No Fillers, Just Flavor” and “What’s In Your Cartridge?” because we believe people should have a product they not only love, but trust.
Can Hemp Oil Be Vaped?
Hemp oil or hemp “juice,” is completely safe to vape. Using CBD oil for your vape pen or vaporizer is a commonly chosen option among cannabidiol users.
CBD vape oil is mixed with a carrier liquid to thin the oil and then processed for use in a vape pen. The product usually comes in pre-filled cartridges that can be screwed onto your vape pen for vaporizing and inhaling.
There are three types of CBD vape oil available for use:
- Full-spectrum: This kind of vape oil contains other cannabinoids like THC (but must be in very small amounts to be legal)
- Broad-spectrum: This kind includes other cannabinoids and safe chemicals, but not THC. Dr. Dabber CBD is broad-spectrum distillate.
- CBD isolate: This form contains only CBD and is the purest form of the substance.
Each of these products produce similar effects when used. The differences between them come down to which compounds they contain. For example, as far as we know, vaping CBD isolate does not produce any differing effects from vaping full-spectrum CBD.
Does Vaping CBD Oil Get You High?
Since THC is only contained in CBD oils in small amounts, if at all, vaping CBD oil will not produce the “high” commonly found in THC products.
The legal amount of THC that can be contained in any sort of CBD oil or product is 0.3% or less. This is hardly enough of the substance to produce any sort of intoxicating effect.
While vaping CBD oil has many of the benefits associated with getting high, it won’t produce the classic high that people think of when referring to weed.
What Does Vaping CBD Feel Like?
Some people can hesitate to try vaping CBD because they don’t know the effects or what it will feel like. However, there’s nothing to be scared of.
Effects of CBD vape oil vary from person to person. Also, factors like the amount of CBD used and natural sensitivity also come into play. However, what’s most important to understand is that CBD alone will never produce the “high” that can make some people paranoid or uncomfortable.
CBD is just one of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Another common and well-known one is THC. As stated before, THC is the cannabinoid that is known to produce the euphoric high associated with cannabis use.
When using CBD vape products, you can expect to feel a little relaxation if that’s what you’re using the product for. But don’t worry about getting high, as the amount of THC in hemp products is typically less than the legal amount of 0.3%.
Are CBD Gummies Stronger Than Vaping?
CBD gummies or other edible products are also a popular choice among CBD users. It’s easy to pop a few gummies in your mouth before leaving the house for the day. Gummies have a few advantages, including prolonged effects, variety, and discretion.
Ultimately, the method you choose for using CBD can change your experience greatly. This makes it highly important to choose the method that suits you best. Both consuming gummies and vaping CBD let you enjoy the benefits of the cannabinoid, but the effects can vary.
Edibles provide prolonged effects as they build up in your body as well as greater discretion than the visibility of vapor. However, vaping CBD provides almost instant relief and can be more affordable. Neither one is necessarily “stronger,” as concentration determines how profound the effects are. It really just depends on personal preference. Overall, vaping CBD can be a viable option for people already acclimated to vaping or who are looking for a convenient CBD consumption method that takes effect quickly.
CBD products come in many forms, including gummies, oils, and of course, vape juices. Choosing the best CBD option for you is mostly based on personal preference and experiences with each product.
510 Thread Vape Pen & Carts Guide

Modern marijuana users are making the switch from smoking weed to vaping THC oil. Smokers have made vaping weed so popular because vaping simulates smoking and gives the same effects. Vaping, however, is proven to be far less harmful than smoking, as well as far more convenient and discreet.
The most popular vaping method is to use a 510-thread vape pen battery and pre-filled cartridge. As more laws permit recreational and medical applications of the cannabis plant, the demand is surging for quality vaping devices such as THC oil cartridges powered by 510-threaded vape batteries. As vaping grows in popularity, vape pen batteries for THC oil vape cartridges continually innovate to include features that make smoking weed easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable.
If new to vaping 510-thread cartridges with cannabis oil, this guide gives the most important information about vape batteries and how to use them.
How Do Vape Pens Work?
Getting a vape pen to work is relatively simple and only require a few steps. 510 thread vape pens for THC cartridges are typically a rechargeable power source that vaporizes cannabis oil contained in a 510-thread vape cartridge. The battery heats up the THC oil in the vape cartridge; heated cannabis oil turns into a vapor that can then be inhaled. Depending on the battery size, vape pens for THC vape cartridges come in different sizes and shapes.
How the vape pen battery is activated depends on the design. Some vape pen batteries have a power button or require the user to hold a button while inhaling to heat the cartridge. Others activate automatically when inhaling from the mouthpiece part of the THC oil cartridge.
Cannabis oil cartridges can be designed to work with only one particular vape pen battery, but most are interchangeable using a common connection called ‘510-threaded.’
What Does 510 Threaded Mean?
Vape pen batteries and vape cartridges are called ‘510-threaded’ because of the measurement of threads that connect the vape battery to the THC cartridge. Most vape cartridges and batteries use this universal connection type
How to Use Vape Batteries For 510 Thread Carts
When choosing a vape pen battery, it’s important to also understand the basics of a THC cartridge, also called ‘cart’ for short. Here’s an overview of THC cartridges:
- The most popular cartridge is a 510-thread, a common connection type that screws the cartridge securely into place.
- A vape cartridge is prefilled with cannabis oil, but it’s possible to buy empty 510-thread cartridges to fill up on one’s own.
- Ever buy a cartridge and wonder, “Why isn’t my vape cart full?” Cartridges are filled according to milligrams (mgs), not volume, so some ‘headspace’ is expected. The core of the cartridge can also absorb some of the THC oil, but it’s still there and ready to be used.
- Vape batteries are the power source that heats up the THC oil cart and creates a vapor. The vapor can then be inhaled through the mouthpiece of the cart.
- Disposable or single-use vape pens are also available. These contain the vape battery and THC oil cart in an all-in-one device. These all-in-one THC carts are popular for first time vaping, traveling, or trying out a new brand of THC oil or a new strain.
What Are The Benefits Of Vaping THC Oil Carts?
Vaping marijuana extracted THC oil offers a long list of benefits compared to smoking. For instance, unlike smoking, vaping allows users to take hits of marijuana at low temperatures. Lower temperatures give the user a smooth inhalation experience. Vaped THC oil also doesn’t create smoke, which means less throat and lung irritation.
In addition to these health benefits, vaping is also more discreet than smoking. With THC pens and cartridges, people can enjoy the benefits of marijuana to the fullest without drawing any unwanted attention to themselves. Vape pens are slim, compact, and nearly odorless. Vaping also puts off smaller amounts of exhaled vapor than smoking.
These reasons are why people are preferring vape pens and cartridges to get the benefits of inhaled cannabis.
What Are The Benefits of Vaping Cannabis?
The cannabis plant contains over one hundred chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. Even though research is still ongoing to unravel all of their benefits, a significant number of studies has yielded promising results about the health benefits of these chemical compounds.
Let’s explore the health benefits of the two most studied and well known cannabinoids — Cannabidiol (also known as CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD is one of the chemical compounds found in cannabis. This cannabinoid is not a psychoactive compound, which means it does not have any intoxicating effect on the user or provide the euphoria associated with being ‘high’ on weed.
While it may not be a psychoactive compound, studies suggest that CBD may provide numerous health benefits , including supplementary treatment of chronic pain, anxiety and depression, nausea and seizures, and many more. CBD is even used in Western pharmaceuticals, such as the FDA approved CBD-based drug called Epidiolex, which is used for the treatment of certain types of epilepsy.
One of the most prevalent chemical compound in cannabis, this cannabinoid is responsible for the ‘high’ effects people get from cannabis. THC is able to create this euphoria by mimicking one of our body’s own naturally occuring chemicals called anandamide, also known as “the bliss molecule.”
What Are The Benefits Of THC Oil Vape Pens?
A simple push of a button or draw on the cartridge almost instantly delivers a vapor dose of THC or CBD. Vape pens are an easy to use method when one needs a quick dose of THC to manage sudden symptoms.
Vape pens can vaporize THC oil at a variety of temperatures and settings, so users can choose a vape pen that serves their individual needs and brings out the best of their favorite strain. Users can opt for multiple cartridge and pen combinations for different purposes as well.
Inhaling cannabis oil at low temperatures gives a soothing and more relaxing experience than vapor produced at high temperatures. Regardless of whether one prefers oil heated at high or low temperatures, cannabis vape pens will deliver a more enjoyable experience.
Vape Pens Features To Consider
As vape pen batteries become more and more popular among cannabis consumers, they want to know which are the best for THC cartridges.
Here is a checklist of factors to consider when searching for a quality vape pen battery:
- What material is used to make the vape pen?
- Temperature Control
- Fast Charging
1. What Material is Used to Make a 510-Thread Vape Cartridge?
When buying vape cartridges, one of the first points is to check what materials are used to make the vape cartridge.
The most commonly used materials used to make vape cartridges include copper, quartz, ceramic, titanium and titanium alloys. Knowing how these materials affect your vaping experience will help you make the right choice of vaping pen.
Quartz cartridges are known for their efficiency and ability to deliver a smooth taste. Ceramic cartridges are the most popular, however, because they provide the biggest and smoothest hits, sometimes referred to as a dab pen for the high it produces.
Quality construction is important whatever the material. Poorly made vape pens can mean that metals can degrade and cause particles to enter the vapor, which can be unhealthy if inhaled.
2. Variable Voltage Vape Batteries Are The Best – Temperature Control
The best vape battery for THC cartridges are those with multiple voltage options. Variable voltage allows the user to control the vape temperature. Buying a variable voltage vape pen battery will provide the option of smooth, mellow hits or more intense and robust puffs. While higher voltage means stronger hits, it will cause flavor loss and less of the desired effects of some terpenes and cannabinoids. With variable voltage, cannabis users can customize their session for whether they want more flavor or stronger hits.
3. The Best Vape Pen Features – Fast Charging
Vape pens are batteries and require being charged. Most vape pen batteries take over half an hour or more to fully charge. This can be most inconvenient. The O.pen 2.0 Variable Voltage Battery, however, has a solution! The O.pen vape pen has a built-in rapid charge mode; simply swipe a finger across the USB charger to activate Rapid Charge mode and the vape battery will be fully charged in only 20 minutes or less.
Vape Pens Battery Safety Tips You Should Know
Always Use the Right Batteries
For a vape pen to work, it must be compatible with the voltage capacity of the cartridge. One way to ensure that one is getting the right vape batteries is to check if they are of the appropriate specs for a cartridge. The voltage recommendations are typically found on the packaging of THC oil vape cartridges.
Read the vape pen recommendations on the THC cart packaging, and never use a vape pen setting higher than the suggested range of voltage.
Store Vape Batteries in Room Temperature Environments
Resist the temptation to throw vape batteries in pockets or bags. Vape pens that use button activation can accidentally be turned on. how frustrating!
We also advise that any vape batteries that are not in use should be stored in a comfortable room temperature environment. This keeps the oil at the right consistency for vaping.
It’s also important to avoid any wet environment with a vape pen or cartridge. Water can damage the electrical components of a vape pen and compromise the integrity of vape cartridges.
Always Use A Dedicated Charger
It’s always best to use dedicated battery chargers. While many chargers may seem compatible, especially when they are 510-threaded and share a connection, only using dedicated chargers avoids the risk of potentially damaging the battery.
Other Vape Pen Safety Tips
- Avoid exposing vape pen batteries to extreme temperatures.
- Use the same battery type if a vape cartridge requires more than one battery.
- Charge vape pens with enough surrounding space so the area is adequately ventilated.
- Keep vape pens and charging vape pens out of reach from children.
What Are THC Vape Pens?
A THC vape is ready to use right out of packaging. Cannabis oil vape pens include a portable battery unit that powers and heats the cartridge, which contains the oil. Upon heating, the oil vaporizes, making the pure substance (THC) available for the user to inhale. This all-in-one device is the most easy and convenient vape pen.
A perfect example of a disposable THC vape pen is the O.Pen Micro, ready to vape right out of the packaging. The O.Pen Micro is a combination of ingenuity and versatility, made with quality vape pen materials and quality cannabis oil.
It offers two oil formulations — O.pen Micro Daily Strains and ISH.
