The use of electronic vapes has grown quite a lot over the past few years. Alongside the popularity of e-liquid vaping, many consumers and experts have decided to start making their very own e-juices, combining the elements used to make e-liquids to their liking and adding their preferred cannabis flavours.
At La Huerta Grow Shop you can find everything you need to prep your own e-liquids with the best cannabis flavours.
What’s an E-Liquid Base?
E-liquids are made up of a base to which flavours are added, and in some cases, CBD or Nicotine. Bases contain propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine.
- Propylene glycol is an insipid organic compound that’s clear and produces no aroma, used frequently in the pharmaceutical industry and food industry. In food it’s used as an additive as it thickens and stabilizes, and is also a solvent for food colouring and aromas. Propylene glycol allows aromas to be dissolved in e-liquids.
- Vegetable glycerine is a natural alcohol that’s extracted from coconut oil, cotton seeds etc. It’s highly used in the cosmetic, food and pharmaceutical industries. In the food industry it’s used as a preservative, e-colour and humectant. Vegetable glycerine is clear and doesn’t produce any odor, although it has a sweet flavour. It adds sweetness and density to e-liquid vapor.
Companies that make e-liquids use different concentrations of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. This proportion between both products establishes a ratio that usually appears on the product’s ingredients. E-liquids which contain more vegetable glycerine cause a more dense, sweet vapor, although they’re less healthy.
Products that make up e-liquid bases, which is to say PG and GV, can be acquired separately so that you can make your own e-liquid in your preferred proportion.
The Best E-Liquid Bases with and without CBD
Here you can find e-liquid bases both with and without CBD so that you can make your very own version. CBD is one of the main cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp, and it has been subject to many scientific studies thanks to its possible therapeutic benefits. These studies confirm that CBD may possess anti-inflammatory, pain relief and calming properties. However, you should always consult with your doctor when it comes to treatment.
In order to create your own CBD e-liquid, all you have to do is to get a CBD-rich e-liquid and add your own flavours to it.
Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine
Check out our catalogue for pharmaceutical-grade USP Propylene Glycol. This means that it follows all standardized regulations and has the highest possible purity, more so than food grade. Available in 100 ml and 1L containers.
Plus, if you want to add in to your e-liquid base you can also use vegetable glycerine, which is also quite pure (99.9%), even purer than that required for pharmaceutical grade products. Glycerine is packaged in PET containers with a safety lid that prevents children from opening it. Available in 100ml and 250ml containers.
Cali Terpenes CBD E-Liquid Base
Our catalogue has a wide range of brands including the renowned Cali Terpenes, who creates their very own CBD e-liquid base. This base is ready to add your preferred cannabis terpene profile to, and it can also be used to dilute concentrates such as BHO and Rosin. This allows you to vape them in an e-liquid vape or e-cigarette.
Cali Terpenes’ CBD e-liquid base doesn’t contain any type of contaminants such as Vitamin E, nor does it contain any transgenic products. The CBD in these e-liquids was obtained following regulations and is 99.8% pure. These e-liquid CBD bases do not contain nicotine nor THC, and they have a 90/10 PG/VG ratio, making it one of the healthiest on the market. Available in 100mg CBD per 10ml.
Harmony CBD E-Liquid Pure Base 10ml
If you’re looking for a CBD base designed to mix with other e-liquids, we recommend using Harmony CBD Pure Base, which only contains CBD and propylene glycol. Harmony’s base is designed specifically for mixing with e-liquids, or with terpenes and GV. It uses pharmaceutical and food-grade ingredients. The amount and composition of their CBD is certified in independent labs monthly, and each base contains 100mg CBD per 10ml.
If you already have an e-liquid base but you’re not sure how to add flavour, we recommend checking out our terpene section, where you can choose from over 45 aromatic profiles that imitate your favourite cannabis strains.
We should mention that in 2017, the WHO declared that CBD is not additive or a health hazard, adding that it has possible therapeutic benefits, and then in January 2020 the World Anti-Doping Agency also removed CBD from their list of banned substances.
Remember that all of the information given here regarding CBD has been obtained from official scientific investigations. If you are having health issues, always check with your doctor; these products do not substitute medical care.
