CBD Vape Juice
Oils that are specially made for vaping are called CBD vape juice. These vape juices do not contain oil. CBD vape juice is also called CBD distillate.

Dosage of CBD
There is no fixed dose of CBD. Various factors vary from person to person. For example, the bodyweight of a person, how much she/he can bear? Another important factor is that every person’s metabolism is different from others, so you cannot generalize this.

If you are a beginner, it is preferable for you to start it from low and then you can increase it later. For example, if you start taking your dosage with 1 and 2 mg of CBD then you should wait for the next six hours, then take another dose.
It is the most important point for you to ponder, how you are feeling after taking every dose? So if you are feeling relaxed and calm then you can increase it.
Note the dosage on which you are feeling relaxed and experienced positive effects. It is found, the average dosage of CBD is 20-30 mg per day.
