    i ordered 5 grams of CBD isolate and was planning on making some vape juice. I wanted to know if anyone has done this and could answer a few questions I have? I’m going to use pg only I think and was wondering how many grams will dissolve in how many ml’s? Can I put 5 grams in 10ml’s of pg? If not how strong can I go? Also can I use it as a tincture if I wanted? I know it’s not ideal but is downing a little pg ok to do? Lastly what’s the best way to vape it? I was planning on dripping it on my Profile rda that is been used with regular juice so I don’t have to absorb a ton of CBD in the wicking. Thanks for any guidance you will be able to provide.

    PG is in a lot of foods, like margarine and gummy candy, is perfectly okay for tincture or sublingual

    I used to have a formula I used to dissolve CBD isolate, but now just leave it for about a month in as little PG as possible, and dilute it and add about an equal amount of VG when I want to vape it, just a drop goes a long ways

    So if I wanted to make 50/50 juice it would be ok? I’ve read that adding too much vg can cause the CBD to re-crystallize. As long as you wait for it to fully dissolve before adding the vg would that work?

    I've found it (at least the isolate I use) tries to recrystallize no matter what I dissolve it in

    @JuicyLucy one more question if you don’t mind. I’ve mix about 4 grams in around 20mls and with the pg only it dissolved and left clear liquid basically identical to just pg. I then added about 10ml’s of vg and it is opaque now. It doesn’t look like the CBD has crystallized so I was wondering is this what your CBD liquid looks like also? Or should it be clear?

    Yes very accurate description. Mine did exactly that....now I’m a little reluctant to use as a tincture. I think I will stick to vaping it, lol. Thanks again, you’ve been very helpful.

    I think Isolate for vaping as I do not think one should vape the CBD oil?

    I don't vape the oil. Been buying pre made cbd e liquid. Just pricey. N i know i can get way more isolate for my money. And it is more diy fun.

    Vaping the tincture is a big no no.

    Adding dissolved Terpenes also give you a full spectrum CBD which is much more potent than just isolate BTW

    Out of curiosity, where have you found good isolate cheap? I picked up 5 grams from bluebird botanicals for $86 I believe. There is a coupon code for first time buyers for 20% off. I think the code was firsttime. Anyway it is $112 regular price. Just wondering if you’ve found a place with better prices.

    Havent found any better than that yet. I was just comparing isolate pricing to pre mixed cbd juice. And if ther is 1000mg per gram even 112$ is way better in comparison

    Yea it 5000mgs for $112 without any coupon codes. The only thing I don’t like is the lack of terpenes. I’m of the belief that mother nature knows what she’s doing and it’s more effective to take all the ingredients of the plant together. I don’t like what THC does to me but even that in small amounts I think is beneficial. Bluebird has their concentrated tinctures on sale right now for 30% off with the code feed30 for any who are interested.

    I've been looking at b bird. I really need to mix my own full spec juice. Between me and my wife pre mixed is just to much $ to use it as needed. I am not a fan of thc either. Used to smoke medically but now i dont want 2 b drunk or high on anything. So cbd is a godsent to me.

    This is an old post but I thought I would contribute my experience. I make Cbd vape juice.

    I start by adding 2 grams of Cbd isolate to 30ml bottle filled with PG (Cbd will not mix in vg). I place the bottle in very hot water for 5 minutes then give it a good shake. I don’t usually have any issue with crystallization this way, though I do give it a good shake every time I use the bottle to mix. This bottle Of pg now has about 67mg per ml of Cbd.

    i make my vape juice in traditional 60ml bottles. So when I make my 70/30 juice, i add the amount of Cbd I want sourced from the premixed 30ml bottle of Cbd pg. I usually do 3ml, which is 200mg Cbd. That will be 3ml of the total Pg needed. Then the nic and flavor. And then vg to finish it off.

    200mg Cbd in 60ml is 3.33 mg/ml of Cbd in the finished vape juice. I usually go through about 10-15ml juice a day, which is 33-50mg of Cbd microdosed per day. You may need a lower dose, especially if new to using Cbd. Dosing can vary pretty wildly per individual. You will need to adjust this formula based on how much you vape per day on average, as well. I also supplement this with sublingual dosing 1x per day. I take for chronic pain condition, so tend to require higher doses than many users. You can find dosing suggestions online.

    just thought I’d share my experience, because Cbd is so expensive, but can be really affordable to diy. I get my Cbd isolate from the hemp barn and hass hemp Colorado. Hemp barn is usually about 15 dollars for a gram, and it’s on sale at hass hemp for $12/g right now.

    So is it full spec or str8 isolate? Your method sounds solid but for my pain n anxiety I've found full spec is the best in my case.

    cbd isolate, though I have done the same with Cbd distillate before, which is full spectrum. Harder to find Cbd distillate online though. With sublingual tinctures I’ve found the full spectrum more beneficial, but for vaping, the isolate has worked really well for me.
