As PG has no taste, it doesn’t interfere with the vape juice’s flavor. As it absorbs moisture quickly, it can cause dryness of the mouth. Yet this is nothing in comparison to the BIG problem.
If PG is overheated during vaporization, it produces formaldehyde and carbonyl compounds. A 2017 study by Troutt and DiDonato, published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine , looked at the most popular marijuana thinning agents which include PG, VG, MCT, and PEG 400 (Polyethylene glycol). All four agents were heated to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The researchers discovered that while PEG 400 produced the most harmful acetaldehyde and formaldehyde byproducts, PG produced far more formaldehyde than VG or MCT. Unless you have an expensive vaporizer that heats up your weed to a specific pre-set temperature, you may not know what temperature your vape juice is being heated at. Add in the fact that vaporizer batteries and cartridges are not always made perfectly, and you could be inhaling cancerous agents without even realizing the damage you are causing to yourself. In the long-term, it is likely that PG can cause a lot of harm. While it is thicker than PG, it is also less likely to cause allergies.
Its sweetness can help provide your vape juice with a better taste, and most users of VG say it provides a much smoother hit than PG. VG is an odorless liquid and is taken from plants in the form of triglycerides. As it provides you with a thicker vapor, it produces a more intense flavor than PG-based vape liquids. However, VG has also been linked with the release of cancerous compounds. Furthermore, manufacturers often mix PG and VG together in their vape juices. As VG is thicker than PG, it also requires more heat to vaporize properly. By raising the temperature, you also increase the risk of releasing carcinogenic byproducts. MCT is found in food items such as coconut or palm kernel oil. As it is flavorless, manufacturers like to mix it with concentrates. In general, vape juice that uses MCT as a carrier is considered to be much safer than juices with VG or PG. Unlike the other two options, MCT does not release carcinogenic byproducts when heated. It is also deemed to improve the bioavailability of cannabinoids and terpenes. MCT has also been linked to a host of health benefits. For example, it can improve glucose levels in individuals with Type 2 diabetes, it can help control your appetite, and MCTs are used as energy immediately instead of being stored as fat. Yet there are a few side effects associated with excessive vaping of MCT oil-based vape juice. The best-known adverse effect is known as lipid pneumonia. This condition occurs due to oil build-up in the lungs, which negatively affects the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide while you breathe. It is a temporary and treatable condition that can be avoided by using sensible amounts of vape juice. If you are new to vaping, a discussion about cannabinoid thinning agents may seem too complex at first. However, there are only three main options (avoid PEG 400 like the plague), and just one of them is worth genuine consideration. When purchasing vape juice , make sure you ONLY select products that use MCT as their carrier. While overconsumption can cause lipid pneumonia, sensible use can help you enjoy the full benefits of the cannabinoids and terpenes you are inhaling. PG and VG have been used since vaporizers became popular, but it is time they were consigned to the scrapheap of history. Both thinning agents release carcinogenic by-products when heated, and shouldn’t be allowed near your lungs, or those of anyone else. El cannabidiol es un quГmico presente en la planta Cannabis sativa, mГЎs comГєnmente conocida como marihuana.
Se han identificado mГЎs 80 quГmicos, conocidos como cannabinoides, en la planta Cannabis sativa.
Aunque el delta-9-tetrahidrocannabinol (THC) es el principal ingrediente activo en la marihuana, el cannabidiol tambiГ©n se obtiene del cГЎГ±amo, que contiene solo una pequeГ±a cantidad de THC. La aprobaciГіn del Proyecto de Ley AgrГcola de 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) prohibiГі la venta de cГЎГ±amo y de productos de cГЎГ±amo en EE. Aunque esto no significa que sean ilegales todos los productos del cannabidiol derivados del cГЎГ±amo. Dado que el cannabidiol ha sido estudiado como un nuevo fГЎrmaco, es legal incluirlo en los alimentos y suplementos dietarios.
