Vaping has come to be known as one of the best ways to treat chronic pain or other conditions with CBD, as it has been proven to offer quick relief to pain.

Vapes come in different varieties and categories and it can be an arduous task getting to pick the most appropriate vaping equipment. So many vapers have been shortchanged because they do not have knowledge of vaping and the components involved. Selecting the appropriate equipment is not that difficult if you have access to the right information, and this article is here to help with that.

Vapes have four basic components: an atomizer— the heating element, a battery, a mouthpiece and a chamber in which the material to be vaped is held. The operation is simple, the atomizer heats up whatever content is in the chamber and the vapor is inhaled from the mouthpiece.

There are two distinct types of vapes to be taken cognizance of:

The pen-style vape is the type of vape that is used for concentrates. Basically, it comprises a chamber that has a metal coil that heats concentrated CBD isolate. The heated CBD is then vaporized and inhaled by the user. The downside of this type of vaping is that the coil needed to heat the concentrates must be periodically replaced when it eventually burns out and the price of this coil starts from $20 upwards.

The second style of vape is known as the "tank style" vapes. These are the vapes that come with all those billowing clouds you see in the media. It comprises an e-liquid, CBD, vegetable glycerine, a mixture of propylene glycol and flavorings.

For people who have been smoking, then the refillable tank will suit you better, however, for a non-smoker looking to treat some ailments or just simply vape for fun, the refillable pen style vape which makes use of CBD concentrates in lieu of e-liquid is the perfect option.

Research has shown that allergies may later develop from vaping as a result of the chemicals and materials comprised in it. The small amount of metal particulate found in vape equipments have been proven to be inimical to health. So before you vape, gather adequate knowledge about the type of vape that suits your body system and whether or not you are susceptible to allergies peculiar to vaping.

In the pen style vape, the heating coil is the material of concern. The heating coil can be made from a variety of materials such as stainless steel, titanium, nickel-chromium alloy or pure nickel wire.

A recent study conducted by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health showed that "overall exposure to metals from electronic cigarette use is not expected to be of significant health concern for smokers switching to electronic cigarette use, but is an unnecessary source of exposure for never-smokers."

The conducted study has proven that vape made from stainless steel and borosilicate glass is less likely to cause contamination. The safest option is to use a vape with cotton or quartz wick and a Kanthal heating coil. The study also advises that since 10-20% of the population is sensitive to nickel, coils that are made of nickel and nickel-chromium should be totally avoided to forestall any occurrence of allergies.

Vaping may or may not be right for you, but consuming CBD is a tested way to treat certain ailments, you just have to find the best way of consuming your CBD. Carry out research to know what works best for you; join a Facebook group, look up information on Google, watch videos on YouTube to acquire knowledge of whatever product you intend to buy. Due to the fact that vaping is new technology, sufficient data and analysis have not been carried out to reach a detailed conclusion about its safety. So, until more studies about the long-term effects of vaping surface, it will suffice here to say that non-smokers avoid vaping for now especially those who have been known to have allergies in the past.
