Although it has a many medical properties but it’s therapeutic properties are being tested and confirmed by the researchers and doctors around the world. CBD is safe and non-addictive and it is one of the more than a hundred phytocannabinoids. CBD is also closely related to THC( tetrahydrocannabinol) as they both are components of Cannabis family. But THC causes the high to its users, however, since both contain many therapeutic properties, they have been most studied by the scientists. CBD does not makes a person intoxicated, and that is because both THC and CBD react differently on different receptors in brain and body. In fact, CBD can neutralize the psychoactive effect of THC, but it depends upon the amount of compound that has been consumed. CBD is potent therapeutically and it is non-toxicating.
CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other ailments. It is being studied that CBD has the potential to treat a wide range of diseases such as

HOW CBD WORKS IN THE BODY
CBD and THC impact us by augmenting the effects of endogenous compounds in our body. These compounds are similar to the compounds found in a Cannabis plant. They are termed as endocannabinoids which are a part of our regulatory system called Endocannabinoid system. Our endocannabinoid system has major implications for most of the area in medical sciences and it helps in explaining the versatility of CBD and THC compounds. The endocannabinoid system plays a major role in our physiological processes such as our mood, energy level, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, pain, stress, hunger etc. CBD has many beneficial benefits that can effect more than 65 molecular pathways. A product rich in CBD having a little or no THC can be beneficial without having euphoric or dysphoric effect. In order to gain these effects, the product should be having CBD in it.
Although CBD has become widely popular among it’s users but still research has been going on to prove its medical efficiency .
CBD can be safely taken on a high very high dose like 100mg in a single dose without any adverse effects. It is also well tolerated by the humans even if it is taken chronically. According to various researches cannabidiol does not have any harmful effect on embryonic development. Although, it is advised that pregnant and lactating mothers should not use it.
Studies show that cannabidiol is non-toxic in normal human cells and does not affect blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature. It also shows no signs of dependency as it is non-addictive and non-stimulating.

CARRIER LIQUIED FOR VAPE JUICES
The three main liquids are-
- VEGETABLE GLYCERINE(VG)
Cannabinoids and terpenes are not water soluble, so they have to be dissolved in either oil or something like it. Vegetable glycerine, which is technically a sugar alcohol is the main ingredient. It has some properties of oil but it is water soluble. It is made from wither palm or coconut oil. VG is completely safe and an ideal solvent. If gives wonderful, white, puffy vape cloud. But it is very thick which makes it difficult to get it into an eye dropper or a tank on a vape mode.
- PROPYLENE GLYCOL(PG)
It is a petroleum derived product, similar to glycerine in chemical composition. It is water soluble, colorless, odorless and acts like an alcohol. It is sweet and slightly peppery in flavor and has a low freezing point. It is declared safe by FDA. Manufacturers add PG to vegetable glycerine to lower its viscosity. Due to this, it flow more easily into tanks and coils, heats up more quickly and allow for true flavor. Ratio of VG to PC is 70:30.
- MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDE OIL(MCT)
By vaping pens, catridges and pods, we can vape CBD juice. These device use a highly concentrated CBDliquied whose base is MCT. MCT is clear, odorless, tasteless and is a food. It is a thin oil, that is liquid at room temperature. Human body has the tendency to break down MCT and metabolize it. CBD gets quickly dissolved in MCT. It vaporizes at a low temperature.
