CBD is a compound that is extracted from industrial hemp and cannabis plants to achieve a wide variety of benefits and relief. CBD has virtually no traces of THC (the compound that makes you feel high), so when taken, all of the therapeutic effects are present without the feeling of being high. This makes CBD a popular consumption among people with anxiety, depression, pain, sleep problems, and disease.
It’s important to note that Hemp and Marijuana are both part of the Cannabis species, but the laws regarding them differ. There is a clear distinction between the two, and are both used for completely different things. All CBD products that Vapers Choice and its affiliates carry is 100% farm bill complaint hemp-derived CBD.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound that is extracted from the cannabis plant to achieve a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects. CBD has no psychoactive properties because it contains such trace amounts of THC. E-juice companies have recently started making CBD e-liquid so that it can be consumed by vaping. Although hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 US states, evaluations have not yet been made by the FDA.
CBD has a long history of being used to treat various health ailments. Archeologists believe that the source plant for CBD, Cannabis, was likely one of the first crops to be planted by man. Both the seeds and oil have been used for food and treatments as early as 6000 BCE! Once it made its way to America, hemp farmers started growing it for its unusually strong fiber, which it then became a well-known and respected component of medicine and dietary supplements.
Since the 1950s, growing Cannabis, even for industrial hemp purposes, has been prohibited. It was only recent that licensed hemp farmers could participate in the Federal Farm Bill, allowing them to legally grow hemp and cultivate CBD with less than 0.3% THC. Any more THC than that and it is considered marijuana, and therefore illegal.
CBD products made from industrial hemp that contain less than 0.3% THC are legal in all 50 US states. Federally, hemp-derived CBD cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. These trace amounts are not nearly enough for anyone to feel high, and if it were to contain more than that, it would be federally illegal. To legally be able to cultivate CBD, one must be a state-approved hemp farmer registered through the Federal Farm Bill. All CBD products sold by Vapers Choice are third party tested to assure they are derived by fully legal, industrial farm-compliant hemp.
It’s important to note that hemp and marijuana are both part of the Cannabis species. What determines Cannabis as marijuana is if it contains more than 0.3% THC. Marijuana is federally illegal, whereas CBD sits in a grey area depending on where it comes from.
The debate around legality revolves around whether it comes from marijuana or hemp. Currently (2018), Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington are medically and recreationally legal states. They have free range over whether their CBD products come from hemp or marijuana. However, other states where Cannabis is only medicinally legal may vary in their allowed THC limit. Some of those states even have limited-access laws where CBD can only come in an oil form.
As of now, there are only 4 states where all marijuana derived CBD products are illegal. These states are Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota. If you are using CBD in one of those states, it’s especially important that you know where your CBD is coming from.
Vaping isn’t the only way you can consume CBD, in fact, that is only a small portion of how you can use it! CBD is commonly taken through tinctures and concentrates, but can also include edibles, dry herbs, capsules, topicals, e-juice, and much more! Vapers Choice carries a wide variety of these products so you don’t need to smoke or even vape to be able to experience the effects of CBD.

People usually prefer tinctures as they are one of the easiest ways to take CBD. Tinctures are an alcoholic extract of a plant or material, or in this case, CBD. It comes in a bottle with a dropper to add to food/drinks, or to simply put under their tongue. If you’re new to CBD, this is a great place to start.
Concentrates are similar to what some would call wax or “dabs.” CBD concentrates are the purest form of the substance. When it comes to extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, one uses solvents such as CO2, butane, or ethanol to get the oils and resins out of the plant. It is then inhaled using a special vape tank or device.
Edibles are exactly what they sound like: food! CBD infused gummies, baked goods, chocolate, butter, and anything else consumable would be considered a CBD edible.
When you hear “dry herb” you probably think about traditional buds, flowers, or leaves. CBD dry herb is exactly that, only with its allowed limit of 0.3% THC. Smoking dry herb CBD does not get you high, but may satisfy those who like a good smoke.
Topicals are things like creams, lotions, and anything else that would be used on the skin. One thing that people use CBD for is pain. CBD topicals are good for people who have pain in specific areas that want to experience targeted relief.
Think of traditional e-juice, but replace the nicotine with CBD. The extract is put into the e-juice blend and then vaped to experience effects. Vapers Choice carries an extensive collection of CBD vape juices and pre-filled cartridges to suit your needs.
CBD is used for a wide variety of illnesses and ailments. Some people have used CBD as a crutch to quit smoking or other substance abuse. When quitting, claims have been made that CBD helps reduce cravings and symptoms of anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, and pain. CBD reacts with our endocannabinoid system which is involved with regulating things like sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response.
Recent research has linked CBD will several benefits affecting the heart and circulatory system, sometimes even reducing blood pressure. Other uses for CBD include acne, diabetes, fibromyalgia, PTSD, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, cancer, and even pets! Dosages vary among ailments.
Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dry mouth, dizziness, diarrhea or changes in appetite. If you experience any of these effects, drink plenty of water and call your doctor. Do not consume CBD if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking other medications.

CBD stands for cannabidiol (canna-bi-die-ahl). It’s a compound that is extracted from hemp/cannabis plants to achieve a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects.
One of the most compelling qualities about CBD is its lack of psychoactive properties. In other words, CBD doesn’t get you high. Unlike Marijuana, CBD has virtually no traces of THC (Tetra-hydro-cannabinol). When taken, all of the benefits are present without the effect of getting high. This makes CBD a popular consumption among people for better sleep, increased mood, decreased anxiety, and reduced pain.
CBD is not to be confused with hemp-oil. CBD is extracted from the flowers and leaves of hemp, whereas hemp oil is pressed from the hemp seeds (which contains no CBD and no THC). Oils that contain concentrations of CBD are known as CBD oils. The concentrations and the uses of these oils can vary.
Hemp and marijuana are BOTH part of the Cannabis plant species. Hemp is defined as the cannabis plant that contains less than 0.3% THC. Anything more than that would be considered marijuana. CBD is not marijuana.
Federally, CBD cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. These trace amounts are not nearly enough for someone to have psychoactive effects. If CBD contains more than 0.3% THC it is then considered marijuana, and depending on the state, could be illegal.
This ideology was adopted into the United States Federal Farm Bill, which determined 0.3% THC or less was the standard qualification for American farm-compliant hemp. The Federal Farm Bill is what allows CBD to be cultivated without violating laws.
Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 US states. Marijuana-derived CBD laws vary from state to state. All CBD/hemp products sold by Vapers Choice are third party tested to ensure legality.
CBD produces effects by attaching to certain receptors in the body and telling it to use more of its own cannabinoids. Without distorting the science too much, you could say that human beings are “hard-wired” for CBD. The endocannabinoid system touches all of the major systems of the body and can do so many things for us. When CBD is consumed, there are no “intoxicating” effects. However, it’s said to produce effects such as increased mood and decreased anxiety. Others have used it for pain management and to quit smoking, among other disease related ailments.
CBD is commonly found in concentrate and tinctures, which are used to mix with food or drinks. Other forms include oils, e-juice, wax, dry herb, capsules, sprays, beauty products, edibles, and even pet treats!
Side effects usually include drowsiness, dry mouth, fatigue, lightheadedness, dysphoria, and/or a mild stomach ache. If you experience any of these side effects, make sure to drink plenty of water and/or call your doctor. No one has ever overdosed on CBD.
You can purchase CBD at any Vapers Choice, CBD Source, Smokers Choice, or Munchies Convenience location.
