How to mix CBD e liquids - CBD calculator video

    How to mix CBD? This is a question we hear a lot from our customers. In this blog we will explain how to mix your own CBD e liquids and show our CBD e liquid calculator in action.

    So why mix your own CBD e liquids? Well it can of course work out cheaper but you can also have control over how strong your CBD is and plus as we know from mixing our own nicotine e liquids it's fun! 

    Before we get into how to mix CBD, if you aren't sure what CBD is then click here for our informative blog. So let's get into this, we will start first by explaining the different products you can purchase and what they are/do 

    CBD isolates

    CBD isolates are the main component of mixing your own CBD e liquids. They are little crystals that look very similar to powder. These isolates are what you will be using to create a CBD e liquid. 

    There are flavourless CBD isolates, these are mostly used if you want to create a CBD e liquid that is flavoured for example a Strawberry CBD e liquid. These isolates do not carry any taste and are best used for people who don't enjoy the taste of hemp. 

    There are terpene infused CBD isolates, these isolates contain the flavour profile from the Cannabis plant. This is why they will have different names such as Lemon Haze, Silver Haze, Blue Cheese etc. These isolates do carry a hemp taste but they also contain different cannabidiols, as you are aware there are 60 compounds in a Cannabis Plant and these are what Scientists call cannabinoids, what we refer to as CBD is just one. In these terpene infused isolates they contain CBD but other cannabidiols too. This is what is referred to as full spectrum CBD. Please note this is in reference to the terpene infused CBD isolates we stock, please check with your supplier if the terpene infused isolates do in fact contain the other cannabidiols. So why do people want full spectrum e liquids? Simply because people report the more of the cannabis plant you have, the better the e liquids work. Some people also report of having an entourage effect which can make them feel happy/relaxed after vaping.

    Terpenes

    Terpenes are liquid drops specially blended to mimic the flavour profile of Cannabis strains. These do not contain CBD and are added to CBD e liquids made from the flavourless isolates to give the e liquid a hemp taste. 

    Propylene Glycol

    Propylene Glycol is a synthetic organic compound. It is a viscous, colourless liquid which is nearly odourless and is used in e liquids 

    Vegetable Glycerin

    Vegetable Glycerin or glycerol, is a clear, odourless liquid produced from plant oils, typically palm oil, soy, or coconut oil. Also used in e liquids 

    How to mix CBD e liquids

    Now for the fun part, below will be some instructions on how to mix a 10ml CBD e liquid with different instructions for using flavourless isolates, terpene infused isolates and how to mix if you are wanting to add terpene drops or a flavour concentrate. Please note we recommend to only use a 70PG/30VG ratio for your CBD e liquids. Too high VG will cause the CBD isolates to clump together and be un-vapeable.

    Here is a table of how much isolates you need in order to make different CBD MG strengths with different e liquid bottle sizes. If your chosen CBD MG strength or bottle size isn't there, why not try our CBD calculator here where you can select from different MG strengths, bottle sizes and the calculator will work out exactly how much Isolate, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin you will need. See a preview video of how our CBD calculator works at the bottom of this page. 

    TERPENE INFUSED ISOLATES CBD E LIQUID METHOD:

    1. Put on some gloves and set a clear area on a table for you to work from
    2. Grab a big sized beaker or container for example a 100ml sized beaker and fill it half way with hot water from the kettle
    3. Grab a smaller container for example a 50ml beaker and place it inside the 100ml beaker. This is used to warm the Propylene Glycol (PG)
    4. Syringe 7ml of PG into the empty 50ml plastic beaker, allow the PG to warm up for around 1 minute
    5. Please set your scales to measure in grams
    6. Using a tea spoon measure out your chosen grams of CBD isolate (refer above for a guide). For example if chosen to make a 250MG CBD e liquid, measure out 0.250 Grams of CBD isolate
    7. Tip the isolates into the PG beaker and stir gently until the CBD isolates are fully disolved. Leave for approx 2 minutes
    8. Measure out 3ml of Vegetable Glycerin (VG). We suggest using no more than 3ml, as VG can cause the isolates to crystalise
    9. Add the 3ml of VG to the beaker and stir again. Leave no longer than 30 seconds
    10. Pour the finished liquid into an empty 10ml bottle
    11. Shake your CBD e liquid before every use   


    FLAVOURLESS ISOLATES CBD E LIQUID METHOD:

    1. Put on some gloves and set a clear area on a table for you to work from
    2. Grab a big sized beaker or container for example a 100ml sized beaker and fill it half way with hot water from the kettle
    3. Grab a smaller container for example a 50ml beaker and place it inside the 100ml beaker. This is used to warm the Propylene Glycol (PG)
    4. Syringe 7ml of PG into the empty 50ml plastic beaker, allow the PG to warm up for around 1 minute
    5. Please set your scales to measure in grams
    6. Using a tea spoon measure out your chosen grams of CBD isolate (refer above for a guide). For example if chosen to make a 250MG CBD e liquid, measure out 0.250 Grams of CBD isolate
    7. Tip the isolates into the PG beaker and stir gently until the CBD isolates are fully disolved. Leave for approx 2 minutes
    8. Measure out 3ml of Vegetable Glycerin (VG). We suggest using no more than 3ml, as VG can cause the isolates to crystalise
    9. Add the 3ml of VG to the beaker and stir again. Leave no longer than 30 seconds
    10. Pour the finished liquid into an empty 10ml bottle
    11. Shake your CBD e liquid before every use


    IF YOU WISH TO ADD TERPENES DROPS PLEASE ADD 1 DROP PER 10ML


    FLAVOURED CBD VAPE JUICE METHOD:

    1. Follow steps 1-3 from above
    2. Syringe 5.5ml of PG and syringe 1.5ml of your chosen flavour concentrate into the empty 50ml plastic beaker, allow the PG & flavours to warm up for around 1 minute
    3. Follow steps 5-11 from above
