CBD vapes are overtaking the shelves everywhere from high-end cannabis stores to gas stations. You may even see them alongside nicotine vapes, which may make them seem like a tempting alternative to smoking tobacco. Harvard Medical School cannabis specialist Jordan Tishler cautions that there is no evidence supporting using CBD vapes to wean yourself off nicotine ones, but he does say that they are healthier in comparison. "Vaporizing CBD would be better than vaporizing nicotine because it’s non-habit forming and doesn’t affect blood pressure and heart rate like nicotine does," he tells Allure.

Because CBD regulation by the FDA is complicated, there may be unhealthy additives in some products on the market. "Many [CBD products] inadvertently contain heavy metals and pesticides which are bad for you, and some of them contain nasty chemicals," Tishler says. While the government is still figuring out how to handle cannabis, do your research to make sure you buy a safe product. In legal states, you can buy vapes that contain both THC and CBD, often in ratios that offer much higher CBD with just a little bit of the psychoactive stuff. Some people find a little THC helps the CBD work better, although doctors caution that THC can work even in small amounts. "It’s probably the tiny bit of THC that’s making you feel good," says Tishler.
When Congress passed the landmark Farm Bill of 2018, they removed industrial hemp and hemp-derived products, like CBD, from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. The law defined legal hemp and hemp-derived products as those which contain less than .3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid responsible for producing the “high” associated with typical cannabis plants.
