CBD Vape Pens

CBD, or cannabidiol, is experiencing huge popularity, and vaping is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to consume it. CBD is a compound found in cannabis plants that can be extracted from marijuana or industrial hemp and processed for consumption in oral and edible products, or for inhalation in e-liquid (usually called CBD vape oil). Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years for its fiber, and more recently as a source of CBD. Hemp-derived CBD doesn’t contain measurable amounts of THC, the psychoactive ingredient that produces the well-known “high” produced by marijuana. Vaping CBD is a more effective method of consumption than edibles, capsules, or topicals because the inhalation provides greater bioavailability. That means the user can absorb more of the product. While there is still more to learn about the long-term effects of vaping CBD, vaping is considered to be a much safer way to consume than smoking, while being equally effective.

Should you vape CBD?

Despite all the research already done, scientists and medical professionals agree that there is still much more to discover about the potential of vaping CBD. Now that you’ve seen some of the current research, you can make an informed decision whether a CBD vape is right for you. Even if you’re perfectly healthy, you may get benefits from using CBD. If you think that vaping is not for you, there are other ways to take CBD, like tinctures, and oral and edible products.

CBD vape juice vs CBD tincture:

CBD oil is also referred to as hemp oil and has been traditionally used in an oral tincture. It usually contains MCT oil (derived from coconuts) and is not suitable for inhalation! Studies have shown that inhaling oil like that can pose serious health risks like lipoid pneumonia. Unlike CBD vape juice, CBD tinctures are strictly for ingestion. Unfortunately, many of them do not have proper warning labels and are sold in e-juice style dropper bottles. There’s an important distinction to make between CBD oil tinctures and CBD oil made for inhalation. CBD oral tinctures are oil-based whereas CBD vape oil is not.

CBD Cartridges: 

Similar to THC oil cartridges, these are slim disposable e-cig tanks filled with CBD e-juice. (Organa’s CBD Vapes contain pure CBD distillate, made using a CO2 or a solvent-based extraction method.) They connect to a standard 510 battery and provide an easy entry into vaping CBD.  Available in several yummy flavours, you can check out Organa CBD vapes under Vape Pens on our site!

Cooking with CBD(Isolate)

 

How to Cook with CBD Isolate

Cooking with CBD isolate is a lot easier than you might think, and a lot of fun too. Those boring meals that once inspired you to order in suddenly seem more interesting. To turn any recipe into a cannabidiol masterpiece using CBD isolate powder you’ll need to know a few basic things: How to use the “Double Boiling Method.”,What a Carrier oil is,
CBD & Temperature.


The Double Boiling Method

The double boiling method is a simple heat control technique used in cooking. This method is typically used for ingredients you wouldn’t want to be exposed to high heat – such as cannabidiol. Whenever we cook with CBD isolate, the FIRST thing we do is use the double boiling method to infuse the isolate with a carrier oil. The double boiling method is important because it is how we turn the pure CBD isolate powder into an ingredient that can be used in just about any recipe.


How to Use the Double Boiling Method

To infuse isolated cannabinoids with a carrier oil – use the double boiling method as described below. Keep in mind that you’ll want to use an appropriate amount of carrier oil to match your dose. As you experiment you may use different doses, but we are going to keep things simple. If you are cooking with 1 gram of CBD isolate powder, you’ll want to use 1-2 teaspoons of carrier oil.

Fill the larger pot about a quarter full with water – you’ll want the water to sit about an inch below the smaller pot.
Place the smaller pot on top of the larger pot sitting above the water. You do not want the smaller pot to be directly affected by the boiling water.

  • Bring water to a low boil at a medium-low heat
  • Add your carrier oil to the smaller pot
  • Add your isolate powder to the carrier oil
  • Stir for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to blend your isolate with the carrier oil well – you shouldn’t be able to see any of the isolate once combined.

Once cooled – pour your CBD infused carrier oil into a container that’ll work best for whatever you’re trying to do.


What is a Carrier Oil?

A carrier oil, which is also known as a base oil, is a plant-derived oil which is used to “carry” essential oils and plant supplements. Essential oils and plant supplements can be overly potent or difficult for us to absorb directly, so carrier oils are used to help facilitate the process. Some carrier oils have benefits of their own and each work differently with the different plants they are mixed with. For example, studies show that unrefined coconut MCT oil provides better absorption of CBD than other carrier oils.


CBD & Temperature

When cooking with CBD one thing, you’ll need to keep in mind is the temperature. High temperatures will cause you to burn off the cannabidiol that you’re trying to infuse into your food. To avoid losing potency, you’ll need to keep an eye on the temperature or use the cannabidiol in your food a bit differently.For example, if you want to enjoy infused grilled chicken, you can’t really just put CBD into the chicken. Instead, you’ll need to infuse the cannabidiol with a sauce to put on the chicken once it has finished cooking. This is why recipes for pasta sauces, barbecue sauces, smoothies, and other low heat recipes are so popular. Sauces and other cold-prep recipes ensure you aren’t losing CBD while you cook. However, you can bake with CBD as well. Baking with CBD requires a bit more mindfulness. Your cannabidiol will be in direct heat, so you’ll want to be sure to keep temperatures below 320 degrees.

Now that you’re familiar with the basics of cooking with CBD, go forth my friends and create tasty cannabinol infused treats!

CBD Isolate: What is it?

What is CBD Isolate?

With the rapid growth of the CBD industry and constant advances in its technology, there are a lot of terms floating around that are unfamiliar, if not confusing, to many people. “Nano-Amplified CBD” is one of them. While the science and biological make-up of CBD is the subject of much research and scholarly articles, it can all be broken down into simple terms.

The Basics of Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD starts with the all-natural botanical concentrate that includes the cannabinoids and fatty acids found in hemp plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the more than 85 cannabinoids found in various concentrations throughout the different parts of the hemp plant, which is part of the Cannabiceae family. Cannabinoids are class of botanical chemical compounds that deliver an array benefits.

This CBD is then sent to a lab for third-party verification of quality. Afterward, it is added to or infused into foods, liquids, nutritional supplements, topicals, and even cosmetics. Also, CBD contains no THC, so products made from the isolate are not psychotropic and cannot get you “high”.

Psychoactive V. Psychedelic

The world “psychoactive” gets thrown around a lot to describe the “high” that comes with marijuana. It is also used in regard to the effects you do not get from CBD products. However, this loose definition needs clarification.

Psychoactive substances of any kind cross the blood/brain barrier and cause a chemical reaction within the brain. By this definition, substances such as coffee, alcohol, tobacco and even Robitussin can be defined as having a “psychoactive” effect on people, in that it will cause a chemical reaction in the brain.

Psychedelic substances also cross the blood/brain barrier. The difference is Psychedelic substances affect mood or behavior and can even expand consciousness.

CBD Isolate is not psychedelic, in that it does not cause the “high” associated with marijuana. However, it could be considered “psychoactive” by the scientific definition of the term.

What’s the Difference Between CBD Isolate vs Full Spectrum CBD?

When CBD is referred to as full spectrum or whole plant CBD, it means that the CBD contains all other cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. And yes, along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), but in very low concentrations (up to .3%), resulting in very minimal psychoactive stimulation. CBD Isolate, on the other hand, is simply purified CBD that has been extracted from the marijuana plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids.

Does CBD oil get you high? Short answer, no.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is naturally non-intoxicating. You may feel calmer when taking it as CBD’s effects are more relaxing vs a high feeling.

Not only will CBD not get you high, but it counteracts the high effects of THC, which is the compound notorious for getting people high.

Benefits of Carrot Seed Oil

Carrot seed oil is an essential oil produced when seeds and plant from wild carrots are steam distilled. Wild carrots are not like the orange carrots you are used to eating but are actually a flower that can be white or purple with a deep taproot under ground and these carrots are not commonly eaten by humans.

Carrot seed oil has many medical benefits due to its unique properties. This oil is antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidizing and antiseptic. It also has carminative (flatulent-reducing), and diuretic (urine-stimulating) properties.

Some of the things carrot seed oil is best for:

Wound care – Carrot seed oil carries antiseptic properties to fight against bacteria and fungi. Applied topically, it may help in reducing infections on the skin or in minor wounds. This also makes it a great remedy for fresh tattoo care.

Skin and Hair – Carrot seed oil is an antioxidant, which are substances that prevent damaging oxidation in the body caused by free-radicals or agents, this gives it an anti aging effect making it a common ingredient in skin care products . Carrot seed oil also contains stimulant properties, which can improve overall scalp and hair health.

Digestive Health – Because of its cleansing and diuretic properties carrot seed oil is great for indigestion, water retention and bloating.

 

 

 

 

Hemp Seed Oil vs CBD Oil

  Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are similar in some ways however there are some important differences. First lets take a look at what they are and how to distinguish the two.

 What is Hemp seed oil? Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seed of the hemp plant, the seeds contain as much as 50%of their weight in oil. While it can be extracted from all of the plants in the cannabis family, industrial hemp is the only plant this oil is made from, this kind of hemp is specifically produced industrially and the amount of psychoactive substances contained are minimal.

 Hemp seed oil is used for making things like lotions and soaps and is a great moisturizer for after the shower. It can be used as a base for different forms of plastic instead of using petroleum and can even be used in the production of eco-friendly paints compared to petroleum based paints. Hemp oil is amazing to use in cooking, it can give a nice nutty and crispy taste to your food like in a salad or can be used to replace other vegetable oils.

 What is CBD oil? CBD is one of the most vital components of marijuana. CBD, otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is the natural component of both hemp or cannabis. CBD oil is cannabis oil that has a significant content of cannabidiol and is made from flower, leaves and stalks of the plant, not from the seed. The extraction methods vary, but the safest known process is the oil based method, where the plant is soaked in a carrier oil- typically hemp or olive- to separate the components. Contrast this with the unsafe solvent-based approach that pushes butane, hexane or alcohol through the plant to extract the chemicals. Larger better funded operations may also opt to use a CO2-based approach which places the material under high pressure. This method offers the safest alternative and produces the purest end product.

  CBD is used most in the medical marijuana industry to help various conditions without the typical intoxicating effects of marijuana. CBD can be used for the treatment of cancer, inflammation, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, seizures, neurodegenerative disorders and so much more. CBD can be put into many things to get results for example soaps, lotions, salves, tinctures, food and candy, shampoos and capsules to name a few, depending on the issue you are trying to treat.

  Hemp and Marijuana are cousins in the plant world but marijuana has a much higher THC content than hemp. Hemp contains low levels of CBD– typically less than 25 parts per million, while CBD oil can have up to 15 percent CBD. Unlike CBD, Hemp has a strong nutritional value, as it is high in polyunsaturated fats like Omega-6 and Omega-3 as well as Vitamin E.

 

How Does Cannabidiol Interact With The body?

All of the 60-plus cannabinoids unique to the plant genus Cannabis interact with our bodies thanks to a network of neurons called the Endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid system runs throughout your body and it’s loaded with receptors that bind to the cannabinoids you introduce to your bloodstream when you consume Cannabis or hemp. It’s the chemical interactions of those bonds that create a wide and largely unknown series of responses in your body.

Without distorting the science too much, you could say that human beings are “hard-wired” for cannabis. The endocannabinoid system runs deep and touches all of the major systems of the body. And that’s why cannabis can do so many things for us, from altering and regulating moods to stimulating appetites and reducing pain. Even though cannabidiol (CBD) has no toxicity for humans—meaning, it doesn’t make you intoxicated (i.e. high)—it is highly reactive with the Endocannabinoid system. To put things as simply as possible, CBD makes things happen. When it binds to the Endocannabinoid system’s receptors, it stimulates all kinds of changes in the body. Most of those changes are incredibly beneficial, and researchers keep uncovering real and potential medical uses for them.
