The Science of Bioavailability: Why You Should Consider Vaping CBD!

In order to provide a comprehensive view of the benefits and drawbacks of vaping CBD, it is important that we set out to understand what bioavailability means. Bioavailability refers to the degree and rate at which a substance enters your system, whether through inhalation or ingestion. The ability for CBD oil (when ingested) to enter your bloodstream is not as quick as when you vape it. This may be because there are more barriers between inhaled material and blood flow than there are with ingested materials, such as food in the stomach or substances entering through the mouth. We still don’t know why this is but these facts should inform how you go about experimenting with CBD if you’re interested!

What is bioavailability

How CBD enters the bloodstream highly impacts bioavailability. When you ingest CBD orally, it has to first go through your liver before it enters the blood stream. When you vape CBD, it goes straight to your lungs and then into your blood stream bypassing first pass liver metabolism.

When you first take a tincture or oil of CBD, you have to wait for your body to metabolize it which can take an hour or two. On average, 10% of the amount of CBD that enters your bloodstream will be available for absorption by cells in your body. But when you vape CBD, 50% will be available for absorption!

Even though vaping CBD will effect you so much quicker, it doesn’t mean you should stop taking your CBD in an oil or tincture. I always vape and take my CBD as a tincture for maximum benefits.

The difference between vaping CBD and ingesting it through your mouth

Vaping CBD is different than ingesting it through your mouth because you will feel the effects of the CBD much faster. Scientists are not 100% certain why this is, but some believe that vaping causes a more direct route to the bloodstream and the liver. Which means that you feel the effects of CBD very quickly after vaping it. For those interested in experimenting with CBD, we recommend trying out vaping it before ingesting it through your mouth.

Why you should consider vaping CBD if you are interested in experimenting with it

1. Vaping CBD is a more efficient way of delivering the compound to your system

2. It’s also a healthier alternative for those looking to avoid any potential smoke from smoking cannabis

3. The effects of vaping CBD are felt much faster than if you were to take it orally as an oil or tincture, which can be beneficial for those who need immediate relief from their symptoms

4. People may find that they have better luck using vaporizers because they feel the effects immediately and don’t have to wait on absorption through the digestive tract

5. Vaporizing is also helpful for people who suffer from nausea since it absorbs quickly into the bloodstream without having to go through your stomach first

6. For those who have a hard time swallowing capsules or other oral forms of CBD, vaping may be your best option

7.It’s perfect for those who are interested in the health benefits but highly dislike smoking cannabis

Vaporizing CBD is more efficient than ingesting it. The effects of vaping CBD are felt much faster, which can be beneficial for those who need immediate relief from their symptoms or feel nauseous when they take it orally as an oil or tincture. Vaporizing also has the added benefit that you don’t have to inhale smoke from burning plant material like cannabis (which some people may prefer). If you’re interested in experimenting with CBD but dislike smoking cannabis, consider giving vaporizing a try!
