Can You Mix CBD Oil with E-liquid?

Can You Mix CBD Oil with E-liquid?

With the growing popularity of CBD products, enthusiasts are inevitably experimenting with them in all ways possible. Among these is vaping, which has grown famous for its smoke-free nature, multiple flavours, and convenience to use in any permitted setting.

After extraction, CBD is often processed into an oil form. While CBD oil is versatile for use in different ways, mixing it with e-liquid is not a good idea unless it is a CBD extract mixed with propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine for vaping. Read on to learn why you should not mix CBD oil with e-liquid.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is a concentrated cannabidiol extract infused with carrier oils such as coconut, grape seed, or olive oil. These oils, often in full-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate types, are intended for ingestion or sublingual use.  Based on their composition, CBD oils cannot produce vapour. When mixed with an e-liquid, the CBD oil will likely burn and produce harmful vapour.

So, the carrier oils in CBD oil are essential for enhancing CBD's bioavailability, which differs from the PG and VG in e-liquids.

What is an E-liquid?

Instead of carrier oils, e-liquids (vape juices) contain alcohol-based vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol compounds, which are responsible for flavour delivery and vapour production when heated. This is why e-liquids are safe and perfect for vaping compared to CBD oil.

How does CBD oil compare to CBD e-liquid?

CBD vape oil has various PG and VG ratios in addition to other ingredients formulated for vaping. CBD oil contains carrier oils for oral or topical use and is administered sublingually, mixed with topicals, or added to your favourite foods for digestion before absorption into the bloodstream.

CBD e-liquid is for use in vape pens or e-cigarettes, where it is vapourised and inhaled to the lungs, where the CBD content is injected into the bloodstream.

In terms of absorption rate, CBD content in vape oils is absorbed much faster than CBD oil taken orally. This is because the lungs have a direct route to the bloodstream compared to the digestive system, leading to the first-pass effect, which impacts CBD’s bioavailability.

Can You Mix CBD Oil with E-liquid?

Instead of adding CBD oil to your vape juice, use available vape juices readily concentrated with CBD oil. These come in various flavours, including fruity, herbal, and tropical options.

How to Mix CBD Oil with E-liquid

You need a CBD vape device, your favourite e-liquid and a CBD vape additive for the best results. Using a dropper, add your CBD vape additive into the e-liquid, then shake well to ensure it is evenly mixed throughout the vape tank.

Our vape additives and CBD vape e-liquids come in varying concentrations, from 30 to 5000mg. So, start with lower dosages for effective concentrations and increase them gradually. When mixing the additives, check for specific instructions on the additives label print.

How to Vape CBD E-liquid

Vaping CBD e-liquid is no different from everyday vaping style. E-liquid preparation procedures may, however, vary slightly if you need to add CBD vape oil into the e-liquid. Beyond that, you’ll be fine vaping CBD the same way you would vape conventional e-liquids.

Remember, CBD interacts with everyone’s body differently, so you don’t want to follow other people’s vaping style. Turn on your vape device (or inhale to start if it has an automatic firing mechanism). Take small and slow draws on the mouthpiece, and hold the vapour in your lungs for a few seconds before exhaling.

Always start slow as a beginner, drink plenty of water, and clean the vape device regularly to boost its performance and avoid residue buildup.

Why You Should Avoid Mixing CBD Oil with E-liquids

Mixing conventional CBD oil with e-liquids is not a healthy practice. CBD oils contain residues that may not mix effectively with e-liquids and can cause multiple lung problems. Typically, the constituents of CBD oil are for digestion by stomach juices; heating them may cause fumes that may lead to respiratory issues.

Factors to Consider When Purchasing CBD E-liquids

Go for safe and quality CBD products whose CBD concentration accurately meets your needs.

Depending on your preferences, check whether you are having pure CBD (CBD Isolate), CBD with various cannabinoids and terpenes but no THC (Broad spectrum CBD) or a CBD type with terpenes, cannabinoids and trace THC levels (Full Spectrum CBD).

Confirm the PG/VG ratio meets your flavour and vapour needs. A higher propylene glycol concentration means more robust flavours with occasional harsh throat hits, and a concentrated vegetable glycerine means more vapour with smoother hits.

How to Make DIY CBD E-liquid

Creating your CBD e-liquids will allow you to customise the strengths and flavour to your taste desires. You’ll need propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, CBD vape oil, and optional flavourings. You can also include nicotine in the formulation for slight throat hits.

Mix a 50:50 ratio of PG and VG as the base, but if you are an experienced vaper, you probably know a specific ratio that best matches your needs. Add your CBD vape additive, and stir slowly or shake the mixture for an even mix.

How Much CBD Should You Vape?

There is no specific answer for how much CBD you should vape. Think of your individual needs and the concentration of CBD in the e-liquid. While you must start with low doses, especially if it's your first CBD vape, you should also consult with healthcare professionals in case of any medical issues.

If you don’t feel the desired effects, you can increase the dosage slowly until you get the expected effects.


Can I mix CBD oil with e-juice?

No, it is not recommended to mix CBD oil with e-liquids. CBD oil is not designed for vaping and can introduce harmful fumes to your lungs, causing respiratory issues if heated. Instead, use formulated CBD vape oils and additives to enhance your e-juice.

What happens if I mix CBD oil with e-liquid?

Mixing CBD oil with e-liquid can result in result in incompatible residues that may clog up the vaping device or produce harmful vapour.

How to identify safe CBD products for vaping

Look for products labelled as CBD vape juice or CBD vape additives. These are available at Flawless CBD and are safe for use in vape devices.
