This is by far the most popular way to use CBD crystals. You basically melt the concentrate and inhale the cloud of vapour. The only real downside to this method is that you will need some accessories if you’ve never dabbed before. These include a dab rig, a torch lighter, a dabbing tool, and of course, your CBD extract. If you have assembled all the necessary tools, put the crystals on the dab tool, heat the nail with your blow torch till it’s red hot, wait 30–60 seconds for it to cool down a little bit, put the crystals on the nail to melt them, and inhale. You will feel the effects almost immediately, which is a benefit over other methods. This is also the most efficient way of consuming CBD crystals, and has the best taste to it.
The next step is to listen to your body and become aware of any positive or negative effects. You should wait 3–4 hours after your first dose because it can sometimes take a while for the effects to become fully noticeable. In the event you don’t feel any effect at all after a few hours, take a slightly larger amount. Once you’ve reached the point where you start to notice an effect, you should remain at this dosage for about a week.
The advantage of CBD crystals is that they can be dissolved in food and drinks, applied sublingually or as a topical salve like many regular CBD products, or they can be vaporized or dabbed. This opens up a whole new world of CBD consumption options (more on that later). Moreover, crystals lack the strong and bitter taste that most consumers find unpalatable about other CBD products. Of course, CBD crystals also contain 0% THC, which means they are non-psychoactive.
CBD crystals are the cleanest and purest form of CBD available today. They reach a purity level of 98% with marginal traces of other cannabinoids and terpenes in the mix. This product and its purity are achieved via different extraction methods, one being the supercritical CO₂ process. Plant material gets filtered out to remove all the unwanted components like excess waxes. The resulting end product is a CBD isolate that has a powdery crystal form (hence the name) and looks like fine sugar.
With CBD crystals, a precise scale is an absolute must. You will have to weigh the crystals to get a correct dosage. If the recommended average daily dose is 10mg and most CBD products tell you to use it 3–4 times a day, that would mean to vape, dab, or ingest an amount of 2.5–3.3mg of CBD crystals per dose.
You’ll want to monitor your body closely during this week. How is your overall health, your mental state, and energy level? With this knowledge, you can now increase or decrease the dosage to get to your desired effect. Just don’t rush the process! Start small and only make minor adjustments. No big rises! This way, you don’t waste money by ingesting too much, but don’t get a weak effect either.
Vaping is pretty similar to dabbing in that it has a quick onset of effects and a better overall taste. You will need not as much paraphernalia as with dabbing, but will require a quality vaporizer that was developed for use with concentrates (vapes for flower won’t do the job). Put your extract in there, heat it to the desired temperature, and draw. It’s that simple! But don’t heat it too high, as that will introduce carcinogens and benzenes into the mix, which we try to avoid as much as possible. This is also true for dabbing CBD crystals.
CBD crystals are simply a form in which CBD can be presented. It gets its name from its resemblance to actual crystals, yet the consistency itself is nothing like crystals, and you needn’t worry about them being hard.
CBD shatter is thin and has an appearance like that of glass, for it usually comes in sharp pieces, and will shatter when dropped or hit. CBD wax shatter is usually not clear in colour, for it is not a pure isolate, but it is very clean and is preferred for many different types of DIY CBD products thanks to its malleability.
How to Make Your Own E-Liquid with CBD Crystals?
E-liquids are actually very simple and easy to make. Especially when you want to make one just to your liking, or to cover certain preferences or needs of yours.
If you want to make a flavoured E-liquid you will need to purchase a high-quality E-liquid Flavour Concentrate in the flavour of your choice. You can get these on Amazon or from any Vape Shop.
Now, to begin making your own CBD e-liquid you must first know that the most E-liquids have a PG to VG ratio between a 60:40 and 70:30. Meaning it is made up of 60% PG (Propylene Glycol) and 40% VG (Vegetable Glycerin).
