CBD

CBD products have been trending exponentially over the last few years — and is expected to flourish at an annual increase of 22.2 percent through 2025, thanks to its health and wellness properties.

Continued feverish growth means more research and development into how the hemp plant can be beneficial. Currently, Delta 8 and Delta 10 and other analogs are becoming the most popular forms due to their specificity of effectiveness and strength.

Continue reading, and we will give you the rundown on CBD, how to purchase it, and how to dose and ingest it.

What is CBD?

CBD short for cannabidiol, which derives directly from the hemp plant. By law, it cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC. One of the most compelling qualities is its lack of psychoactive properties. In other words, you won’t get high but can support the symptoms of anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, and pain. Cannabinoids react with our endocannabinoid system, which is involved in regulating things like sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response.

Selecting and Purchasing

As with purchasing anything, solid, reliable advice is paramount. However, that is not always possible or available. 

Fortunately, Vape Militia has prioritized dedicating time and effort to spreading truthful and helpful information regarding all products we have available for purchase, including our CBD products.

We highly recommend reading the information below when considering purchasing any product. 

Check out our News section for continued updates and new information as it becomes available.

What to Consider When Purchasing?

We have the following guide to assist in purchasing the best for you..

Extraction method

Trustworthy manufacturers use pressurized and cooled CO2 for extraction. The function of the CO2 changes its state from gas to liquid and this leaves behind a cold liquid extract full of cannabinoids and other beneficial compounds such as terpenes and trichomes.

Solvent based extraction is the cheaper, more dangerous and unhealthy way to extract. This method can leave behind traces of the solvent chemical used, usually butane or chlorophyll. Both of which can be mostly removed, but will reduce the potency of the extract. Lab test will also confirm these harmful residuals are not in your CBD product.

Cannabinoid Spectrum

There are at least 113 cannabinoids that have been isolated that make up the cannabinoid system. You may have heard of some of these like THC, CBG and CBD. Others like CBN, and CBE maybe not. They all play some role in the overall effects of hemp and cannabis. As well as some of the more recently discovered cannabinoid analogs, such as Delta 8, Delta 10, and THCP. More are constantly being discovered.

There are also half a dozen or so “synthetic cannabinoids.” They are considered cannabinoids only because they intend to mimic the real thing. This quickly turned to disaster with the advent of “spice” and “k2”.

Third-party Lab Testing

The Certificate of Analysis or (COA) from a third-party laboratory is the only way to prove the potency, purity and ingredients of your CBD product. Often times these are found through a QR code on the packaging of the product.

The existence of “spice” and any other fake cannabinoid is why lab tests are so extremely important.  Just because it has a label and is on the shelf of a store does not mean it is a legitimate product anyone should ingest.

The Cannabinoid Spectrum

The wide and beautiful spectrum of cannabinoids

As we mentioned above, there are at least 113 cannabinoids, each having a unique role in the effect cannabis can have on the body.

We have included a pie chart below that helps quickly differentiate some of the more abundant cannabinoids and their effects on symptoms that one may want to dissipate without pharmaceuticals.

Unfortunately, not all of these are readily available for retail purchase. As demand dictates, the market and the manufacturers follow. Currently, the focus is on what we call “The Delta’s” which are Delta 8, Delta 9, and Delta 10. As well as THCP, THCO, THCV, and HHC. They are generally called cannabinoid analogs, with the exclusion of Delta 9.

This means they are not 100% found in nature at the potency needed to have an effect on their own and are considered rare compared to the other cannabinoids. Therefore, the analogs need one of two things

A. Another group of cannabinoids, such as those in the pie chart below, to create an entourage effect
B. They need to be manipulated or manufactured at the molecular level to have any real effect at all

Of the analogs, the most popular currently are Delta 8, Delta 10, THCP, and HHC. For more info on these, follow the links provided.
