A Guide to CBD Vape in Ireland and the UK

Taking a look at the industry of CBD vape in Ireland & UK and introducing you to the best terpene infused CBD vape distillate.

The use of CBD vape in Ireland & UK has increased significantly in the past few years, along with some other CBD products. If you want to try a CBD vape, but you don’t know anything about it, then this article is for you. We will tell you all you need to know about CBD vapes and introduce you to the best CBD vape in Ireland & UK.

What Exactly Is a CBD Vape?

CBD has quickly turned into a popular product after its first introduction into the market. It claims to be an all-natural solution to different health conditions such as seizures, anxiety, pain, and insomnia. And these are not just claims. They are backed up by thousands of testimonials from happy customers and scientific research that proves more of its benefits every year. CBD comes in many forms such as capsules, oils, creams, etc. and each takes a different time length to affect the body.

The fastest way to see the result of CBD is by using a CBD vape.

Vaping is the process of inhaling vapor through a vape pen. The vape pen consists of a power source, an atomizer, and a cartridge that holds the liquid that you vape. Vaping, which was originally introduced as a method to help smokers quit, is now used by many non-smokers for delivering beneficial compounds to the body. One of these compounds is CBD, the non-intoxicating component of the hemp plant.

Your lung will immediately absorb the CBD you vape and it will enter your bloodstream in a matter of seconds. After about 10 minutes, 30-60% of the inhaled CBD will be distributed throughout your body where it will stay for another 3 hours. The instantaneous effectiveness of a CBD vape makes it a good option if you’re targeting acute pain.

But there is so much more to vaping CBD that you need to know to have a safe experience and avoid toxicities. Let’s look at some of those.

Common Toxicities of CBD Vape in Ireland & UK

The industry of CBD vape in Ireland & UK has gone through many changes in terms of what is used in the products, but the main focus has been on four different ingredients:

  • CBD Isolate, which is the purest form of cannabidiol with potential health benefits; 
  • Propylene Glycol (PG), which enables the product to hold stronger flavors and binds the flavors together; 
  • Vegetable Glycerin (VG), which produces big smoke or vapor clouds that consumers often desire;
  • Flavorings, which are infused into the CBD vape and you can taste them when taking a puff.

While CBD isolate has not shown any side effects and is completely safe, various studies show the other ingredients that most companies use in their vape juices, are toxic.

For instance, a 2018 study from the University of North Carolina found that synthetic flavorings such as vanillin and butter flavorings, among many other artificial flavors, are highly toxic for the body and can adversely affect cell viability, which is the measure of healthy viable cells in a population. For a full list of chemicals and their toxicities, you can check out this website.

Other than the flavors, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin can be toxic too. There are various percentage blends of these two products in a CBD vape, from 80/20 to 60/40 or 50/50, usually in favor of a higher percentage of propylene glycol. But according to consumers, PG can cause headaches and dry mouth, and leave a plastic aftertaste. Besides, formaldehyde, acrolein, and acetaldehyde are products of propylene glycol and glycerol heated vaporization. According to studies, these are all carcinogens, which means they can cause cancer. And you’re choosing a CBD vape to receive its benefits not get cancer!

How Is Our CBD Vape Different?

At Full Circle Hemp, we have never been aligned with the use of propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine to produce a CBD vape product because of their toxic and carcinogenic side effects.

One of our main passions is to educate and empower our customers by continuously creating effective and transformative products for them. Right now, most of the companies providing CBD vape in Ireland & UK create products that have a low percentage of CBD, with a maximum of 500mg CBD in a 10ml bottle of CBD vape juice. This means the CBD content is only 5% and accompanied by the previously mentioned toxic compounds.

That is why we have increasingly seen the need for a stronger CBD vape product that is not only less harmful to the body but delivers instant effects. So we conducted extensive research and during our travels to the US became aware that most health-conscious American CBD vape consumers leaned towards a pure CBD distillate infused with plant-based terpenes that mimic the effects of cannabis strains.

CBD distillate contains up to 90% pure CBD and many more of hemp’s natural and beneficial compounds, and studies show that CBD vape distillate has a significantly lower hazard index than smoking hemp flower or hemp bud. Since distillates can be tested for the pesticides and heavy metals often found in CBD vape juices, we knew that we could produce a clean product rich in cannabinoids and terpenes without the harmful agents. 

These efforts have all led us to produce our wide range of CBD vape products with a high strength of 50% CBD blend providing 500mg of CBD per 1ml cartridge and 250mg of CBD in a 0.5ml cartridge. The high strength means an instant effect with less vaping.

Our CBD Vape Hardware

One of the most important areas of vaping pure natural terpene infused CBD vape distillate is your hardware. In our vape pen kits, we use the highest quality hardware to give you the most satisfying experience. Our fully ceramic cartridges create the perfect temperature and allow the true flavors of the terpene infused CBD vape distillate to come through. Along with reusable batteries and environmental-friendly material, you can enjoy your CBD vape without harming the environment.

Our CBD Vape Products

Our CBD vape products are a range of hand-blended, terpene infused CBD distillates that we have created with great diligence and care. Featuring pure CBD distillate infused with a Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid blend of terpenes.

These blends each bring their own effects based on the strains that they mimic. The Sativa acts as a daytime blend that is energizing and creative; the Hybrid is synergistically uplifting yet relaxing. The Indica is a night time blend for deep relaxation and body ease. 

Our distillate contains a full array of cannabinoids that includes a high percentage of CBG (Cannabigerol) and different terpenes. We’ve been talking a lot about terpenes without really looking at what they are and what they can do for your body. Next, we are going to take a deeper look at terpenes and their effects. Plus, we’ll tell you which ones are in our products, so you can choose based on your needs.

What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes or terpenoids are natural aromatic components of most plants, responsible for their scents and extracted essential oils and used in perfumes and aromatherapy. Other than playing a part in the plant's defense mechanisms by fending off harmful insects and attracting good ones like bees, terpenes help enhance the effects of cannabinoids like CBD. This is called an entourage effect where terpenes and other compounds of the cannabis plant work together with cannabinoids to create a better and more wholesome experience.

Plus, studies show that terpenes can limit the effects of psychoactive cannabinoids like THC and allow the therapeutic effects to dominate. With more than 100 types in different strains of the cannabis plant, terpenes can give each strain a unique effect and be the determining factor in their difference.

Here are some of the terpenes we use in our CBD vape products:

Myrcene

Myrcene is one of the main terpenes in cannabis and other plants such as lemongrass, thyme, and hops. Most of the currently used cannabis strains are the ones that are dominated by Myrcene. This terpene has an earthy flavor with several benefits backed by science, including its pain-relieving, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects. For a CBD vape with Myrcene, you can try our Blue Dream products.

Alpha Pinene

Alpha Pinene is the most abundant terpene on earth. It is found in plants such as pine needles, basil, dill, and rosemary and it gives them their fresh scent.

Alpha Pinene is responsible for the piney taste and aroma of cannabis. Its research-based therapeutic benefits include its anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and anti-microbial effects. Plus, studies show that it can help improve memory.

For a CBD vape with Alpha Pinene, you can try our Blue Dream products.

Limonene

The second most abundant terpene in nature is Limonene. It is commonly found in fruits such as orange, lime, and lemon and carries with it the citrusy scent and flavor.

Other than its energizing effects, research suggests it has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, and anticancer properties.

For a CBD vape with Limonene, you can try our Key Lime Pie, Blueberry Muffin, and Gelato products

Beta-Caryophyllene

Beta-Caryophyllene can be found in herbs like black pepper and cloves. It holds an herbal and spicy flavor.

Beta-Caryophyllene has pain-relieving, antinociceptive, and anti-inflammatory benefits as it interacts directly with the CB2 receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system.

For a CBD vape with Beta-Caryophyllene, you can try our Key Lime Pie, Blueberry Muffin, and Gelato products.

Ocimene

 

Ocimene is one of those terpenes that act as an insecticide in the plant’s defense against harmful insects. It is found in plants such as hops, basil, mangoes, lavender, orchids, pepper, kumquats, and bergamot. It has a sweet and floral scent with hints of woody undertones.
This terpene has uplifting effects and anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antioxidant, antifungal, and antiviral properties.
For a CBD vape with Ocimene, you can try our Blueberry Muffin products.
Linalool

Linalool is most commonly found in lavender and coriander and has a strong floral scent with hints of citrus. Linalool is responsible for the calming effects of lavender essential oils.

Studies show that Linalool has anti-inflammatory, anti-hyperlipidemic, antidepressant, anticancer, antimicrobial, and anti-anxiety effects.

For a CBD vape with Linalool, you can try our Gelato products.

 

These are just some of the terpenes we use. We have other terpene infused CBD vape products including our Green Crack vape with a citrusy and earthy flavor and energizing effect, and our Zikittles vape with a taste of tropical fruits that improves focus.
