CBD Vaping – What’s the Difference Between CBD E-Liquid and CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol or CBD is taking the market by storm. Part of CBD’s fame is the anecdotal health claims and therapeutic effects that treat various ailments. It has positive effects on anxiety and pain relief among other benefits.
While there are many methods of consumption, at the center are CBD e-liquid and CBD vape juices. To most users, these two products are quite confusing. And with the CBD industry at its infancy stage, there’s a lot of misleading information online leaving you unsure which one to trust.
Before vaping went mainstream, taking CBD orally was the most popular method. Now, there are many products giving users wide options. Even once you decide to vape, you still have to pick an e-juice from the hundreds of products in the market. That means doing a comparison of CBD vape juices and then picking the most suitable.
Which one is better when it comes to CBD e-liquid vs CBD oil? In this article, we look at what sets these two products apart to help you make more informed decisions.
What’s CBD Oil?
CBD oil generally refers to the cannabidiol extracted from the hemp or cannabis plant. Although the oil contains other forms of cannabinoids, CBD oil exists in higher concentrations. CBD oil can exist in the form of edibles, tinctures, oil, or capsules.
But most people tend to use CBD oil and CBD tinctures interchangeably. CBD oil refers to products that are taken orally/sublingually by placing it under the tongue. Such products are not designed for vaping or smoking.
What’s CBD E-Liquid?
CBD e-liquid or CBD vape juice is a form of CBD oil designed for vaping. The CBD oil extract is mixed with a thinning agent that makes it less viscous, a form that can be heated to produce vapor.
However, most people use CBD vape oil and CBD e-liquid interchangeably even though there’s no such thing as CBD vape oil. CBD e-liquid should only be used for e-cigarettes and vape pens.
CBD E-Liquid vs CBD oil: Method of Extraction
In its original form, CBD plant extract is solid. It needs to be converted into a form ideal for consumption and absorption. Carrier oil is usually used in this process, but the type of oil used is different for each of the consumption methods.
CBD tinctures or generally oils are taken orally are extracted using food-grade oils that are easy to digest and absorb such as coconut or olive oil. But to produce liquids that can be vaped, thinning agents are used since ordinary oils are too viscous for vaporization. The widely used thinning agents are vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), and medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil.
CBD E-Liquid vs CBD oil: Ingestion Method
How you take CBD oil and CBD e-liquid are different. That means you shouldn’t consume the vape juice orally or vape the oil. But to bring the difference home, let’s see the difference between CBD “liquid” and “oil”.
Any CBD product that has “liquid” in its name is designed to be taken in vapor form or vaporized. On the other hand, CBD products with the term “oil” are designed for oral consumption and not ideal for vaping or smoking.
Can you vape CBD oil? Well, CBD tinctures or oil are viscous. That means they are hard to turn into vapor. If you try vaping it, your vape pen could get clogged or malfunction.
Can you ingest CBD e-liquid? Majority of the CBD vape juices contain non-toxic food-grade ingredients. But while you can ingest them, you don’t have to. They offer a much better experience when vaped.
CBD E-Liquid vs CBD oil: Delivery
CBD oils are best ingested sublingually. Through this method, the oil is absorbed through the sublingual membrane into your bloodstream. Although it is a faster consumption method since the vape juice doesn’t undergo digestion, it takes a bit longer to feel the effects compared to vaping. But after waiting between 30 to 60 minutes, the effects last considerably longer- up to 12 hours.
Inhaled CBD e-liquid vapor rushes through the lungs into the bloodstream. This delivery method is faster allowing you to feel the effects in as little as 30 seconds. But on the downside, the effects won’t last longer – at most 5 hours.
CBD E-Liquid vs CBD oil: Taste
CBD oil in its original form has an unpleasant taste leaving an oily feel in your mouth. But tinctures come in various flavors from vanilla to chocolate which improves the taste. Similarly, most vape juices are flavored making them more delicious.
CBD Vape Vs CBD Oil: Pros and Cons
CBD Oil Pros
- More discrete
- Easy to use
- Comes in different strengths
- No need for special equipment such as vaporizers
- Easy to make at home
CBD Oil Cons
- Long delivery time
CBD Vape Pros
- Faster delivery
- Better taste
- Comes in different strengths
CBD Vape Cons
- Less discrete
- Banned in some places that don’t allow smoking
- Considerably more expensive
CBD is non-psychoactive. So, regardless of the method you choose, you can enjoy all CBD benefits. The key differences are in terms of taste, bioavailability, extraction, and consumption method.
However, everyone is different and sometimes it might take more time before you feel the effects. You need to experiment to find out which method is the most suitable for you. But don’t overdose for immediate effects, just increase the doses gradually as you note the results.

Vaping Illness Update: FDA Warns Public to Stop Using Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-Containing Vaping Products and Any Vaping Products Obtained Off the Street
FDA strengthens warning to public to stop using THC-containing vaping products and any vaping products obtained off the street.
- Consumers and family members of consumers who use vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC), a psychoactive component of the marijuana plant.
- Consumers who have used vaping products of any kind obtained off the street or from unknown sources.
- Consumers experiencing symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath or chest pain after using vaping products.
- Health care professionals treating patients who use vaping products.
In its continued efforts to protect the public, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is strengthening its warning to consumers to stop using vaping products containing THC amid more than 1,000 reports of lung injuries—including some resulting in deaths—following the use of vaping products. The FDA is working closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local public health partners to investigate these illnesses as quickly as possible.
While the work by federal and state health officials to identify more information about the products used, where they were obtained, and what substances they contain is ongoing, the FDA is providing members of the public with additional information to help protect themselves.
Problem and Scope:
A majority of the samples tested by the states or by the FDA related to this investigation have been identified as vaping products containing THC. Through this investigation, we have also found most of the patients impacted by these illnesses reported using THC-containing products, suggesting THC vaping products play a role in the outbreak.
Recommendations for the Public:
- Do not use vaping products that contain THC.
- Do not use vaping products—particularly those containing THC—obtained off the street or from other illicit or social sources.
- Do not modify or add any substances, such as THC or other oils, to vaping products, including those purchased through retail establishments.
- No vaping product has been approved by the FDA for therapeutic uses or authorized for marketing by the FDA. The agency recommends contacting your health care provider for more information about the use of THC to treat medical conditions.
- No youth or pregnant women should be using any vaping product, regardless of the substance. Adults who do not currently use tobacco products should not start using these products. If you are an adult who uses e-cigarettes instead of cigarette smoking, do not return to smoking cigarettes.
- If you choose to use these products, monitor yourself for symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, chest pain) and promptly seek medical attention if you have concerns about your health. If you are concerned about your health after using a vaping product, contact your health care provider, or you can also call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222. Health care providers also can contact their local poison control center.
More information is needed to better understand whether there is a relationship between any specific products or substances and the reported illnesses. To help gather and analyze as much information as possible, the FDA is working closely with federal and state partners to identify the products or substances that may be causing the illnesses.
The FDA’s Forensic Chemistry Center is using state-of-the-art technology to analyze hundreds of samples submitted by a number of states for the presence of a broad range of chemicals, including nicotine, THC, other cannabinoids, and opioids along with cutting agents/diluents and other additives, pesticides, poisons, heavy metals and toxins.
No one substance has been identified in all of the samples tested. Importantly, identifying any compounds that are present in the samples will be one piece of the puzzle but will not necessarily answer questions about what is causing these illnesses.
Federal and state partners are following any potential leads. The FDA is committed to taking appropriate actions as the facts emerge and keeping the public informed as we have more information to share.
How to Report a Problem:
CDC and the FDA encourage the public to provide detailed information related to any unexpected tobacco- or e-cigarette-related health or product issues to the FDA via the online Safety Reporting Portal.
