Can You Vape CBD Tincture? Read Before You Try!

It’s natural to wonder if you can vape CBD tinctures since they seem similar to CBD concentrate. CBD extract, however, has a very different composition from most CBD tinctures, and vaping a tincture could harm you.

Learn which CBD products you should and shouldn’t vape. Then, check out our top Secret Nature vape picks to start your CBD vaping adventure today.

What’s the difference between CBD oil and CBD tincture?

Vaping a tincture could be dangerous. Some kinds of CBD oil, on the other hand, are designed to be vaped. Let’s start by defining some important terms:

— CBD oil (concentrate) —

Depending on the context, CBD oil can mean a variety of things. This term technically applies to CBD-rich hemp flower extract, but the average person uses “CBD oil” to refer to CBD tinctures instead.

— CBD tincture (oral) —

A CBD tincture is a finished hemp product that contains CBD-rich hemp flower extract and various other ingredients. In addition to CBD extract, one or more carrier oils are used to make the cannabis extract less viscous. Every popular carrier oil has the potential to harm your lungs.


— What’s the difference? —


CBD concentrate contains nothing but the substances that are already present in cannabis flower. It’s possible to vaporize oils present in cannabis for the same reason it’s possible to vaporize cannabis buds themselves.

CBD tinctures, on the other hand, contain ingredients that could hurt your lungs if inhaled. Don’t get confused by the packaging. Even if that bottle in your hand is labeled “CBD oil,” look at the ingredients list to understand what you’re working with.

If just one of the ingredients looks like it shouldn’t be vaporized, don’t. You shouldn’t risk the potential damage to your lungs that can occur when you inhale the wrong vaporized oils.

Let’s be abundantly clear: You should not vaporize Secret Nature tinctures under any circumstances.

What happens if I vape CBD tincture?

Some oils, like cannabinoids, absorb easily into the cells that line the inside of your lungs. Most oils, however, shouldn’t be inhaled since they remain on the surface of your lung lining where they attract bacteria, leading to lipoid pneumonia, a potentially fatal illness.

Common carrier oils used in tinctures, such as hemp seed oil and MCT coconut oil, have the potential to cause lipoid pneumonia when vaporized. Very few oils are safe to vaporize, so chalk it up to a lucky accident that we can inhale cannabis flower vapor at all.

If vaporized, however, oil from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant has the potential to be harmful. Not even Secret Nature hemp seed oil, which comes from the best organic sources in the world, is suitable for vaporizing.

Don’t vaporize Secret Nature CBD tincture for any reason. Visit our CBD vape product category page for convenient cannabinoid vaping solutions.

Is CBD vape juice the same thing as CBD oil?

Not exactly. Vape juice has gotten a bad rap in recent years — and for good reason. A red flag should immediately go up the moment you hear something you inhale described as “juice.”

Just as the name suggests, vape juice is all too often a cocktail of potentially dangerous substances thrown together hodge-podge. While CBD vape juice cartridges sometimes contain the amount of CBD listed on the package, they just as well may contain less or none at all.

CBD vape juice might, however, contain plenty of potentially fatal pulmonary toxins like vitamin E acetate, the culprit behind the 2019 spate of vaping-related illnesses.

When vaping cannabis or hemp, it’s best to vaporize cannabinoids, terpenes, and other Cannabis sativa flower constituents only. Anything added actually detracts from the usefulness and safety of vaping CBD (with the sole exception of organic cannabis terpenes).

Secret Nature vape cartridges contain 100% organic, CO2-extracted hemp extract and live resin cannabis terpenes only. Live resin is the most flavorful form of terpene extraction ever devised, and it may boost the effects of cannabinoids.

What kind of CBD is best for vaping?

Now you know you can’t vape CBD tincture. What kinds of CBD is it okay to vape, though, and which vapable CBD products are best?

— CBD flower —

Yes, you can vape CBD flower. Vaporizers for cannabis flower have been around for decades, so whether you want to go all-out on a volcano-style rig or stick with a simple dry herb vape pen, there are lots of options on the market.

Vaping CBD flower provides you with one of the most natural vape experiences possible. The vapor produced by heating CBD flower is delicious and mild, but grinding hemp on the go might be a bit too much of a strain.

Even if you don’t get a bunch of green crumbs everywhere, people might wonder about the source of that unmistakably dank aroma. CBD vape pens are best for when you’re out, but you’ll love sinking into that genuine analog haze that sets in the moment you inhale a thick cloud of delicious Secret Nature flower.

— CBD dabs —

For CBD manufacturers, dabs are among the easiest products to make. Before we put it into our vape cartridges, Secret Nature CBD distillate is essentially the same thing as CBD dab concentrate.

Inhaling a CBD dab is an entirely different category of experience from vaping CBD flower. With dabs, you have total control over the dose you use, and the sky is the limit when it comes to hardware and accessories for making your dab dreams come true.

The only problem with dab rigs is that they’re hard to transport. There’s nothing better than CBD vape pens if you want to use CBD vapor on the go.

— CBD cartridges —

Vape pods or cartridges may well be the most convenient tools for using cannabinoids ever devised. Filled with distilled cannabis extract, these tiny cartridges attach to rechargeable batteries.

Small enough to fit in your pocket, Secret Nature CBD vape pens offer more benefits than the competition. Here’s why:

  • Live resin terpenes

Instead of being derived from dried and cured buds, live resin comes from nugs taken fresh off the vine. If you’ve ever smelled a living cannabis plant in full bloom, you understand there’s no better aroma on Earth.

Curing is necessary to make CBD flower ready to vape or smoke. The same rules don’t apply, however, to CBD concentrate.

Live resin terpenes taste like flowering cannabis plants smell, loudly declaring the refreshing purity of each Secret Nature CBD vape cartridge. There’s truly no better terpene extraction method on the market.

  • Excellent hardware and product options

Secret Nature vape cartridges are available in 700mg and 1200mg sizes, providing a refreshing departure from the standard 1g option. We offer a slim, rechargeable battery that fits either cartridge size.

  • Trusted brand reputation

The CBD flower market has exploded recently. They’re all just imitators, though — Secret Nature is the genuine article. Not even artisan, high-grade recreational cannabis outshines our frosty nugs.

Secret Nature products have received more 5-star reviews than every other CBD flower brand’s products combined. Your trust has only made us stronger.

Does vaping CBD have any side effects?

Scientists have not yet discovered any serious side effects of CBD. Vaping appears to be much better for you than smoking, so there aren’t any added side effects when you choose this ingestion method. 

Some CBD vapes, however, might include unnecessary, harmful ingredients. Always make sure you know what’s in your vape products before you take your first puff.

Here are some of the tools you might find useful as you determine whether a CBD vape product you’re considering is safe:

— Third-party lab reports —

In most industries, government regulation provides consumers with assurance that the products they’re using are safe. The CBD industry, however, is too new to be fully regulated, making it necessary for producers to set standards for purity and potency themselves.

A CBD product’s lab reports should be from a facility that isn’t associated with the producer. They should confirm that the product you’re considering contains the amount of CBD listed on the label.

— Ingredients list —

All products intended for human consumption should have ingredient lists. Reading through these lists gives you an idea of what’s in your product, but you need to be prepared to understand the context of each ingredient. Is propylene glycol (PG), for instance, actually safe? What about “natural flavoring” — is it really natural?

Don’t settle until you’re entirely sure what’s in a CBD vape product you might use. There are a lot of CBD brands that go the extra mile for their loyal customers, but there are also plenty that don’t. Learn to tell the difference — starting with the ingredients label.

— Customer reviews —

It’s natural to trust fellow consumers more than you trust brands. It’s usually possible for brands to alter their reviews to some degree, but it’s much harder to fabricate entire reviews.

Take a listen to all the unique voices singing the praises of Secret Nature. Our customers don’t just like our products — they love them.

Should I use different doses of CBD tincture vs. CBD dabs?

As the measurement of your body’s ability to absorb a substance before it is excreted, bioavailability is the key to understanding the doses you should use with different CBD products. Oral CBD products have greatly reduced bioavailability compared to inhaled CBD products due to the well-intentioned interference of the liver, which tries to filter out dangerous substances before they move on through your digestive tract.

You might want to use more CBD tincture than CBD vape, therefore, since the bioavailability of vaping CBD is higher than swallowing it. Tinctures are usually designed to deliver 10-50mg of CBD per dose, and most vape pens deliver 5-10mg CBD per draw, which just about balances out the bioavailability differences between these product types.

What you choose to let into your lungs matters, which is why Secret Nature rigorously adheres to the highest standards in quality, customer service, and product engineering. We invite you to try the following Secret Nature CBD vape products before any others:

The bottom line: Can you vape CBD oil?

Never vape CBD tincture under any circumstances. Even if it only contains natural carriers like MCT oil or hemp seed oil, you still might harm your lungs by vaping a CBD tincture.

Tinctures are meant to be tinctures, and vapes are meant to be vapes. These two CBD product categories should ever overlap.

Secret Nature tinctures only contain the best organic ingredients, but each ingredient is intended for oral consumption only. As far as our vape products go, we’re confident there aren’t any better options on the market.

As we developed our company, one of the first things we noticed was the lack of transparency in the CBD vape market. Not only do we tell you exactly what’s in each Secret Nature vape cartridge, but we even insist on using nothing less than the best CO2 extract that science can produce.

Vaping related injuries are entirely preventable, and the best way to keep yourself safe is to demand the highest standard of quality from your CBD vape products. In that regard, Secret Nature will never disappoint.

Vaping CBD tincture FAQ

What else would you like to know about the dangerous mistake of vaping CBD tincture?

1. Where do I learn how to fill a vape pen with CBD oil?

Fool Island, for all we know. Because that’s what you’d have be to fill a vape pen with CBD tincture — a fool.

Refilling vape cartridges is a risky business under any circumstances, and under no circumstances should you vape CBD oil. CBD concentrate is another matter, but you need to clearly tell the difference before you accidentally inhale something that might damage your lungs.

2. Why is vaping CBD so popular?

Because it’s easy, pure, and effective. As long as you choose the right CBD vape manufacturer, you know you’re not inhaling any additives, and vaping delivers the effects of CBD more strongly than any other ingestion method.

Remember that the only two ingredients permissible in CBD vape products are CO2-extracted hemp flower concentrate and (optionally) cannabis-derived terpenes. Anything else is unnecessary and potentially dangerous.

3. Are heavy metals a problem in CBD vapes?

Heavy metals can sometimes be present in CBD extracts due to agricultural contamination of the hemp flower source. Coils in vape cartridges also release heavy metal nanoparticles when activated.

In studies, heavy metal exposure levels due to natural coil degradation were far below recommended safety thresholds. Nevertheless, it’s important to be aware of this (very faint) health risk that could be inherent to vaping anything using a metallic coil.
