What are the health benefits of using it?
There is not a lot of concrete evidence to support the health benefits of CBD but it has been reported by users that there are many health benefits.

For anxiety CBD calms your body down and relaxes your nervous system so that you are not in a heightened ‘fight or flight’ response. Studies suggest that CBD may also help with insomnia, helping people fall asleep and stay asleep.
CBD is also said to help with seizures according to a study done in 2003 and the FDA has recently approved a drug called Epidiolex, which is made from CBD and is used to treat patients with severe seizures that are hard to treat.

It is important to note that not all CBD oil can be vaped, some of them can only be consumed orally through edibles for example. Before you start vaping CBD you need to determine the dosage which will depend on the following factors:
- Your body weight.
- Your body chemistry.

It is recommended that you start with the lowest dose possible and then increase gradually in 5mg intervals as needed. Side note, if you are using Vaping to stop smoking then you can mix the CBD oil with the nicotine vape juices.
