If you are looking for a natural way to help your dog with what they may be experiencing,  Tasty Drops 4 Pets is definitely worth a try. This is our CBD product made specifically for dogs, being a tincture that can be added to their food very easily.

Hemp Oil for Joints

Many pet owners will look to CBD hemp oil to help treat anxiety issues as well as joint issues in their dogs. For older dogs, or even larger dogs that have issues with joint pain and mobility, CBD oil may be helpful in managing inflammation and pain. By adding Tasty Drops 4 Pets into your dog’s food, you can easily avoid the pain of trying to add pills to treats. With reduced inflammation, your dog’s mobility will improve and their pain could be reduced.

Hemp Oil for Anxiety

If your dog experiences anxiety, whether it be from traveling or separation, adding CBD hemp oil into their food can be extremely helpful for increasing their comfort. Tasty Drops 4 Pets can be easily mixed into their food and, in addition to aiding their emotional wellness, it will benefit their physical health as well.

Many pet owners notice an improvement in disposition once CBD hemp oil is incorporated into their diet. With reduced anxiety and inflammation, you can improve your pup’s quality of life with better physical and mental health.

Hemp Oil For Other Pets

Dogs aren’t the only furry friends that CBD can help, we also sell tinctures for their mortal enemies: cats! We don’t recommend that you should give your dog a cat tincture, or vice versa, since they have been formulated with each pet in mind. Other than cats and dogs, CBD products have also been seen being used to help out horses! While we don’t sell those products, it’s good to know that CBD can help animals just as much as it can help out humans.

With our industry on the rise, there are a lot of very good questions being asked by those who are looking to experience the benefits of CBD. Like any other supplement, serving sizes are important in using the product correctly. Any confusion practically doubles when you see how many CBD products there are, anything from gummies to tinctures. Unfortunately, the answer is not as straight forward as you would think, as it is mostly dependent on you.

Our Recommendation

What is tough about this question is that there is no “right” answer. How much CBD you need to see any change is completely up to you as a person. Everyone is different, and the process of finding your sweet spot is something that you will need to do yourself. This reality is largely due to the FDA having not done any rigorous testing regarding CBD’s effects. So until then, we are on our own.

Don’t worry, doing this is easier than you think.

Finding Your Sweet Spot

When you first start utilizing CBD, we recommend following the serving size that is on the label for one week. Whether you see any difference or not, keep it consistent for one week to see how it goes. Then, going into the next week, change it up as you see fit, changing it up as you go.

Keep in mind that there is a good chance that you might not end up following the label when you find your sweet spot. Don’t worry about this, you know yourself much better than anyone else ever will.

If you are worried about not ever finding your sweet spot, don’t worry, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on all of our products. Our main focus is to help people, and if you find that CBD is not your cup of tea, we will make sure that you get your money back.

What Happens If I Take Too Much CBD?

There have been no reports of anything negative happening to those who have taken “too much” CBD. We have heard that some customers have gotten somewhat sleepy, but other than that, you can’t “overdose” on CBD. The worry around taking too much CBD should have more to do with making sure that you don’t waste any, not that you will ever have a bad experience.

One of the first questions that we get on a daily basis is if CBD hemp oil will get you high. “Hemp” is usually assumed to refer to marijuana. However, CBD is an extract from an industrial hemp plant, meaning that there are no psychoactive effects. Meaning that CBD will never get you high. While hemp and marijuana may come from the same plant, they are not the same.

CBD Supplement Sourcing

Though hemp and marijuana differ, cannabidiol (CBD) is still found in and an extract of both plants. Therefore, it is important to be mindful of where the CBD is sourced from when purchasing CBD supplements. Hemp plants are bred for CBD content and contain low concentrations of THC. Conversely, marijuana plants contain high concentrations of THC and low levels of CBD.

If you are purchasing a CBD product sourced from marijuana, it can and likely does contain enough levels of THC to cause a high. Especially in a person who does not regularly consume THC. These products are federally illegal, and only available for purchase in states with medical marijuana medical programs.

With the 2018 Farm Bill recently passing, CBD is 100% legal in the United States! Even with this being signed by President Trump, it is important to know as much as you can about where your CBD products are sourced, and the THC content within it.

CBD vs. THC

Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two of the most common cannabinoids naturally occurring in cannabis. CBD and THC are similar at the molecular level which causes confusion among the public and scientific community. However, the chemical properties of CBD and THC vary enough to understand that they are, in fact, different.

Cannabinoids like THC and CBD interact with our endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is composed of a series of receptors, called cannabinoid receptors, which are located throughout the body. Cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, work as messengers to send information to these receptors.

Cannabinoid receptors produce varying effects based on whether they are interacting with THC, CBD or one of over 90 other cannabinoids. THC interacts directly with these receptors to create a high. CBD inhibits other enzymes from interacting with cannabinoid receptors, therefore, CBD not only does not cause a “high” it actually decreases the high effects from THC. 

An Everyday Supplement

Since CBD hemp oil does not create a high, many people can enjoy the benefits of CBD. CBD hemp oil can be used safely as a daily supplement. Hemp oil can benefit all members of the family and can be easily be incorporated into your diet or regular nutritional regimen. Tasty Hemp Oil offers a wide range of products that fit into many areas of a healthy lifestyle.

Our Products

Tasty Hemp Oil offers a wide variety of hemp products so you’re bound to find one that works for you. If you are new to hemp nutritional supplements, we recommend trying a few forms to see which method suits you best.

Products containing CBD oil come in many different forms, such as oils, capsules, infused edibles, and even skincare products! Each of these has its own method of being used. To receive the full benefits of CBD, it is important to take the product as intended. In the form of an oil, CBD is best experienced when placed under the tongue.

How CBD Oil Works

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid extracted from the hemp plant. CBD oil works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system., which is responsible for keeping the body in homeostasis. The effects of CBD are non-psychoactive and do not cause a high or intoxicating effect; instead, CBD can promote relaxation, a sense of calm, and general wellbeing.

The Best Way to Dispense CBD Oil

Sublingual application, or application under the tongue, allows for the active ingredients of CBD oil to be directly absorbed through the mucous membrane in the mouth. There are many capillaries, or tiny blood vessels, under the tongue which transfer directly to the bloodstream. When absorbed under the tongue, CBD bypasses the digestive system and processing of the liver; therefore, the effects of CBD oil are not decreased by digestion. Sublingual application allows CBD to quickly enter the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system.

Products like Tasty Drops are designed for sublingual application, as the liquid is easy to hold under the tongue. Sublingual tinctures are a great fit for those who have trouble taking traditional capsules. They are also a good choice for those who are looking for quick results from their CBD oil.

The Effects of Placing CBD Oil Under the Tongue

CBD is being studied by researchers for many different benefits. No scientific claims can be made yet, but studies are showing many advantages of using CBD as a dietary supplement.

How you take CBD and how much CBD you take can influence the effects you experience. Further research can help you make a decision on what CBD oil form is the best fit for you.

The serving size of CBD oil will differ for everybody. We recommend that you start out with 15 drops, once or twice a day. This is not a standard, but a guideline to get you started. Finding your ideal serving size could take some research and trial and error.

You can learn more about our CBD oil products and how they should be dispensed by contacting us at (616) 863-2222.

Even with being a little over a week into the new year, there is a chance you have already cheated on your resolution. Whether it was ordering a pizza instead of dining in or watching a movie instead of going to the gym, it is very rare to stay on track to achieve your resolution. If this has happened to you, don’t worry, as only 9.2% of people completed theirs in 2018. However, the benefits of CBD can make it a lot easier for you to get back on the right track. Are you in that 9.2% so far? Keep on reading, because the tips here will help you not fall back into your old routines.

Benefits Of CBD

CBD can help tremendously with any of the “stereotypical” New Year’s Resolutions while having applications to many others. CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system, an internal network that helps your body maintain homeostasis or a state of internal stability.

The ECS helps maintain systems such as your mood, appetite, and memory. Many of our customers use CBD for reasons such as pain relief, post-workout recovery and even anxiety. Here we will be going through two of the most popular ones, and seeing how cannabidiol can either get you back on track or continue pursuing your goals!

Working Out Consistently

Unfortunately, there is nothing in CBD that will force you to go to the gym and work out. You will still need to make that choice for yourself (just make sure you don’t skip leg day!). However, after working out, CBD’s anti-inflammatory capabilities will help make your post-workout recovery much more manageable. No sane person who wakes up sore wants to go back to the gym. Period. With CBD, inflammation will become a distant memory of 2018.

Making New Friends

It has been reported by The University of Sao Paulo that after conducting a study of their own, that CBD contains anti-anxiety qualities. For the study, 24 individuals who had Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder were given a public speaking simulation. Before the mock presentation, half of the subjects were given a placebo, while the other half were given a single dose of 600mg of CBD.

After the “presentation” had been completed, the subjects given the placebo reported a much higher level of anxiety than those given the 600mg of CBD.

Like we mentioned with the first resolution, CBD isn’t going to get you up and put yourself out there for meeting new people. What it can do, is making it a whole lot easier.

There Is No Secret Ingredient

CBD is not a quick and easy “fix-all” solution. While it does have great benefits, achieving your New Years Resolution is going to take more than just using cannabidiol. There are many ways to get you on the right track, whether it’s waking up early to run a mile or even going to a get-together. 2019 is just beginning, there’s still plenty of time left to hit your goal.

With Christmas almost upon us, family get-togethers are right around the corner. While the food, music, and presents make up most of these parties, there is one part that some people dread: small-talk. The art of talking to that one aunt you see once a year who is way too curious about your life.

If you use CBD, there is a great chance that it can come up in these lovely (or dreaded) conversations with family members. To be prepared for the onslaught questions from Aunt Susie once she hears you use CBD, be sure to read on!

Sharing CBD vs Selling: What To Keep In Mind

Before we go on to the questions you might need to answer, let’s be sure to remember a few things. If you are being asked about CBD, chances are you have a chance to clear up some “fake news” for your family members (such as the difference between hemp and marijuana). Doing this could lead to your family trying CBD themselves and improving their health!

Even with that being said, be sure not to go overboard when it comes to educating family. Your goal isn’t to sell a product, that’s our job, your goal should be to educate and tell your own personal story. If you sell too hard, your family will think there is an ulterior motive, when you only really want them to be healthy.

Being someone who knows their CBD, you should want nothing more than to help them become knowledgeable about this new product. Also, if you are successful in educating them and they seem interested in trying our product, be sure to give them coupon code “HAPPYHOLIDAYS” to get 10% off their first purchase!

The 5 Questions You’ll Be Asked (With Answers)

When discussing CBD with your family, these are the 5 questions you are likely to be asked.

Is CBD Legal?

CBD is indeed legal, according to the 2014 Farm Bill. Explain this to Aunt Susie by describing while CBD is derived from the hemp plant, just like marijuana, it has very different effects for those who use it. On top of this, our CBD is derived from industrial hemp, which means that it contains less than 0.3% THC, making it legal according to the 2014 farm bill. There is also a new farm bill which is about to be approved by the President which will make hemp an agricultural commodity, meaning it will be able to be grown and cultivated in every US state!

So Wait, Does It Get You High?

Aunt Susie will probably hit you with this follow-up, which is very easily answered by explaining that CBD has no THC, which is the substance found in marijuana which results in a “high”.

What’s the Difference Between CBD and THC?

While CBD and THC are both chemicals found in the hemp plant, the slight difference in chemical makeup goes a long way to differentiate the two. For a simple explanation, describe to Aunt Susie they are two different substances: CBD has a calming effect, while THC once again results in a “high” feeling.

How Do You Take It?

CBD comes in many different forms. Whether it be in tinctures, concentrates, or even edibles such as chocolate or gummies. One of the greatest things about CBD is the variety of ways you can take it, flexibility like this is unheard of with other products in the health industry.

What Are the Benefits of Using CBD?

We can report that our customers use our products for such things as anxiety and inflammation. It also helps us relax, provides a calming effect as well as having anti-inflammatory properties.  There are many other benefits to using CBD oil, but when talking to a relative we recommend you explain why you personally use CBD and the benefits you have seen. Your own personal experience with CBD will trump any sort of statistic you memorized beforehand.

Resources That Can Help Your Family Members

If your family is curious to learn more, we have a free E-Book you can download by subscribing to our newsletter! In it, we have stuffed a lot more information about CBD. Once you get your email containing the e-book, feel free to forward it to anyone, or even print it out to have on hand at the yearly Christmas party!

Also, be sure give them an extra Christmas surprise by telling them to use coupon code “HAPPYHOLIDAYS” to get 10% off their first purchase!

Today, President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill, a revolutionary piece of legislature for multiple industries, but most importantly: the hemp industry. For decades, hemp (and in turn CBD itself) has been listed as a Controlled Substance, putting it alongside marijuana and other intoxicating substances. However, moving forward, hemp will be placed under the supervision of the Department of Agriculture.

This change will revolutionize the CBD industry, which had been living in a legal gray area for decades. Some regulations were eased with the 2014 Farm Bill, but it was still very difficult for CBD companies like us to follow the guidelines, as some were up almost entirely to interpretation.

With the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp farmers are going to have the ability to participate in USDA programs for certifications for competitive grants, that partnered with a CBD industry that was worth $350 million in 2017 (even with the regulations), the sky is the limit for hemp!

The History of Hemp Prohibition

The Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 was one of the first steps that America made in the crackdown on hemp plants. However, even before this was passed, attempts to slow down the hemp industry took place as early as 1906. Back then, hemp was used primarily as a way to make paper.

The Tax Act of 1937 was eventually overruled by Leary v. United States in 1969. This found the previously enacted tax act unconstitutional, after Timothy Leary himself was arrested for possession of marijuana.

In the next year, the Controlled Substances Act was passed, which the new 2018 Farm Bill successfully overrules. This was a replacement for the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 and placed hemp as a controlled substance.

The Highlights Of The 2018 Farm Bill

Read on for the main highlights from the bill itself by attorney Jonathan Miller from Frost Brown Todd LLC, or you can read the entire 807-page report.

  • “By redefining hemp to include its “extracts, cannabinoids and derivatives,” Congress explicitly has removed popular hemp products — such as hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) — from the purview of the CSA. Accordingly, the Drug Enforcement Administration no longer has any possible claim to interfere with the interstate commerce of hemp products. This should give comfort to federally regulated institutions — banks, merchant services, credit card companies, e-commerce sites, and advertising platforms — to conduct commerce with the hemp and hemp product industry.”
  • “Hemp farmers now may finally access needed crop insurance and can fully participate in USDA programs for certification and competitive grants.”
  • “State and Tribal governments may impose separate restrictions or requirements on hemp growth and the sale of hemp products – however, they cannot interfere with the interstate transport of hemp or hemp products. We are hopeful that local and state officials will follow Congress’ lead, as well as the statements and resolutions of the World Health Organization and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that declare, after intense scientific scrutiny, that CBD is safe, non-toxic, and non-addictive.”
  • “The FDA continues to exercise jurisdiction over the regulation of ingestible and topical hemp products.  We applaud the agency’s continued efforts to crack down on bad actors who undermine the industry through misguided marketing claims.  And while we are concerned about non-binding statements made by the FDA that have led some state and local officials to question the legality of the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD, we are hopeful that we can work with the agency to clarify that CBD – which their own scientists concluded has no abuse potential and does not pose a risk to public health – should not be withheld from Americans who count on it for their health and wellness.”
Section By Section
  • Section 7129 (p. 313): Includes hemp in USDA’s supplemental and alternative crops programs. Section 7501 (p. 338): Includes hemp in USDA’s critical agricultural materials programs.
  • Section 7605 (p. 347): Orders the USDA Secretary to prepare a report on the 2014 Farm Bill pilot program, and then repeals that program one year after the new permanent hemp program is created. Section 10113 (p. 429): The guts of the new permanent legalization regime:
  • Section 297A (p. 429) Defines hemp as all parts of the plant less than 0.3% THC, including “derivatives,” “extracts” and “cannabinoids.”
  • Section 297B (p. 429) Empowers states and Tribes to submit plans to USDA to implement a permanent hemp growing program.  Requires information gathering, testing, and inspection procedures.  The USDA Secretary must sign off on, or reject, the plan within 60 days, and consult with the Attorney General.  The Secretary can later audit state programs and work with the states to develop corrective action plans where there is noncompliance.
  • Section 297B(e)(p. 431): Orders states and Tribes to develop procedures to address violations, including corrective action in the case of negligence.
  • Section 297B(e)(3)(B) (p. 432): Individuals who commit drug felonies cannot participate in state or Tribal growth programs for 10 years following the date of their conviction.  However, participants in the 2014 Farm Bill pilot programs are grandfathered in to participate in permanent programs despite any prior felony committed.
  • Section 297C (p. 432): States and Tribes are required to maintain information on lands where hemp is grown and testing, enforcement and inspection procedures.  The USDA Secretary must collect such information to be accessible in real time to local, state and federal law enforcement.
  • Section 297D (p. 434): The USDA Secretary is required to submit an annual report to Congress on the program’s implementation.
  • Section 297D(c)(p. 434): Nothing in the new law affects the FDA’s authority under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act or the Public Health Service Act.
  • Section 10114 (p. 435): Nothing in the act prohibits the interstate commerce of hemp, nor can States or Tribes prohibit the transportation of hemp or hemp products through their territory.
  • Title XI (p. 439):  Hemp farmers are made eligible for crop insurance, and marketability requirements for the crop insurance program can be waived.
  • Section 12619 (p. 540): Hemp is removed from the definition of “marihuana,” and THC found in hemp is excluded from the definition of a controlled substance.”
In Closing

As we look to the future of the hemp industry, one thing is for certain: the best is yet to come! Are you interested in learning more about CBD, or finally trying it? Shop CBD now!

When most people think of anxiety, a variety of different occurrences can be imagined. For one, it could be seen as a weakness, while to others it can be seen as an expected aspect of life. Whether it’s the feeling of nervousness before going out and giving a presentation, or the knot in your stomach that appears as your flight gets ready to take off, anxiety is a normal part of life that should not be feared.

While anxiety alone is normal, there are those who have a lot worse than a temporary fear. Instead, what is momentary to most people becomes constant to those who have anxiety disorders. This is where cannabidiol (CBD) comes in.

Many of our customers here at Tasty Hemp Oil have reported CBD has done amazing things in their lives. Helping them feel calm and not overly anxious is one of them. In this blog, we will look at what anxiety itself is, and while the FDA has not yet released any findings, there are a few studies which have shown positive results when it comes to CBD and anxiety.

What Is Anxiety?

As previously mentioned above, anxiety is a normal and expected part of our daily lives. It can come in different forms, depending on where it originates, which could be either professional or personal aspects of your life. Being the “flight or fight” response to a situation we find ourselves in, the severity of the anxiety is based on what exactly is going on.

18.1% of all adults in the United States are affected by anxiety disorders, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. However, with many individuals either never seeking assistance or being misdiagnosed, the current estimates skyrocket to 30%.

What One Study Has Shown – CBD & Anxiety

The University of Sao Paulo, located in Brazil, has posted their findings on a study done to test the effect of CBD on anxiety. For the test, a total of 24 individuals who had Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder were given a public speaking simulation. Before the mock presentation, half of the subjects were given a placebo, while the other half were given a single dose of 600mg of CBD.

When asked afterward about how they felt during the presentation, the subjects who were given the CBD reported having felt a lot less anxious as they normally would be under similar circumstances.

How Does CBD Oil Help With Anxiety?

The endocannabinoid system is a biological network that runs throughout your body. It’s one job is maintaining homeostasis, which means psychologically balanced and stable. This helps regulate your mood, appetite, pain and memory functions that your body performs, usually without you realizing it.

Throughout your endocannabinoid system (ECS) there are CB1 Receptors. These are where endocannabinoids, such as anandamide (which causes sensations of pain, pleasure, and hunger), can be affected.

Both CBD and THC, the latter being the substance which gets you “high”, interact with your endocannabinoid system in different ways. THC perfectly fits into CB1 receptors, which gets you high. While on the other hand, CBD does not fit into the CB1 receptors, but other receptors found in the ECS that makes you feel more relaxed and calm.

In Closing

While there is still no FDA approved studies to prove it, CBD still continues to gain traction from the benefits it provides. While anxiety is not the only thing that our customers have tried it for, CBD is very quickly making a lasting impression on the medical field. With a new and improved 2018 Farm Bill on the table in the House for voting as we speak, the passing of which will clear up all confusion about industrial hemp, and lead to CBD products to be thoroughly tested by the FDA.

Today, December 6th, recreational marijuana is now legal in Tasty Hemp Oil’s home state of Michigan. This is thanks to Proposition 1, which was voted on back in November. With this huge change coming to our state, what does the proposition cover, and how will it impact our industry of non-intoxicating hemp products?

What Does The Proposition Change In Michigan?

From today onwards, adults who are 21 and over can use marijuana recreationally. Keep in mind smoking publicly is still illegal. While you can have up to 2.5 ounces of the herb on you in public, you can have up to 10 ounces on you if you are in a secure location, such as your home. Growing will also be legal, allowing up to 12 plants per household! As we stated when Proposition 1 first passed, this is nothing to take lightly, as most other states who have legalized marijuana only allow 4 plants at the most.

If you are interested in reading the proposition in its entirety, check it out here.

How Will This Influence CBD?

While this law passing does not directly affect CBD, it obviously sets a new standard at the state level. We at Tasty Hemp Oil are hoping this will lead to more testing and research regarding the many benefits of CBD, which would also result in an increase of public education on CBD itself.

With hemp (where CBD is derived from), the Michigan House of Representatives recently approved a bill, which would classify hemp as an agricultural product instead of lumping it with marijuana. This would clear the way for hemp to be grown in Michigan; this would allow us to grow and source our CBD from our own hemp plants locally.

House Bills 6330, 6331 and 6380, are waiting to be approved by the Senate, which will clear up the gray area currently surround hemp and therefore CBD as well.

While CBD is still legal in Michigan, it will clear up a lot of confusion that the industry faces.

Will Tasty Hemp Oil Now Sell THC Products?

As we said when the proposition first passed, there are currently no plans for us to produce and sell THC products. Helping people is one of our main core values and will be top of mind as we discuss this issue.

If you are a grizzled veteran of the health-industry when it comes to cannabidiol (CBD), you have probably heard of the term “winterizing.” As cannabis research continues, the term itself is becoming very important to the current state of the scientific community.

Winterization is an optional step in the process of extracting CBD. Before we dive into the ins and outs of it, we must first discuss the process of extracting the CBD from the hemp plant.

What is Winterization?

Winterizing is an extraction process which further purifies a hemp extract. When this method is being employed, the hemp oil is soaked in alcohol and then frozen to separate out the waxes. The final product has a maple-syrup like consistency and is dark in color.

After winterization, our hemp oil is processed into a CBD isolate. As we discussed in a previous blog, CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD. CBD isolate contains no other phytonutrients and is THC-free. With THC being the compound which gives the “high” other cannabis byproducts are known for, like Marijuana, being THC-free allows for more flexibility in how you can enjoy cannabis.

Extracting CBD from Hemp

CBD, or cannabidiol, is an active compound found in the hemp plant. By extracting it, cannabinoids such as CBD are separated from the plant matter in the form of an oil.

Our hemp oil is extracted using the CO2 method. During CO2 extraction, hemp is put under high pressure and low temperatures, which eliminates the need for harsh chemical use. While this is a complex and time intensive method, it is the cleanest and safest method of extraction and ensures a pure CBD product.

After CO2 extraction, we are left with a hemp oil concentrate. Raw concentrates have a thick, paste-like consistency and contain all the available phytonutrients from the hemp plant.

In this form, we have what is known as full-spectrum hemp oil. From here, the hemp oil can be used in a variety of products or consumed as is. However, CBD can be refined further in a process known as winterization.

Why is Winterization Important?

A primary reason why winterizing is the resulting THC-free CBD products. Using a product that contains THC can limit consumers, especially ones who are asked to pass drug tests. Being able to enjoy the many benefits of CBD should be as stress-free as possible.

While we do not utilize winterizing (Tasty doesn’t offer vape products), our sister company Alternate Vape does, which makes their vapes 100% THC-free. Alternate Vape has chosen to use this method because winterizing prevents the buildup of cuticle wax in the lungs. Keep in mind, this is only a byproduct of vaping CBD, and there are no studies that have proven this to be true. Smoking other forms of cannabis wouldn’t result in a buildup, as the wax is burned away due to the higher temperature compared to vape pens.

To learn more about vaping CBD, be sure to check out our partners at Alternate Vape!
