Is Vaping CBD Bad for Your Teeth?
Will Vaping CBD Damage You Teeth?
Can you wreck your teeth by vaping CBD?
I thought this was a funny (dumb) question. But the more I looked into it, the more I realized that there is a little something to it.
Whenever you take something besides air or water into your body, there will be some sort or reaction. Vaping is no different.
Bringing lots of hot vaporous chemicals into your mouth is something to think about.
CBD itself is non toxic and it’s impossible to vape enough CBD to hurt yourself.
However, most of the safety questions I get asked about come from the vaping part.
Vaping is generally safe – but not without risks – especially if you’re a knucklehead or you vape too much.
And that’s the whole point. All of the health concerns are about vaping excessively.
People addicted to nicotine vape all day long.
Consequently they bring in tons of stuff that is probably not that great.
The biggest concerns are:
- Propylene Glycol
All of these have been known to irritate your mouth and cause an inflammatory response
And vaping a lot nicotine might inflame your gums and the linings of your mouth – which could lead to more serious problems down the road – such as periodontal (gum) disease.
Vaping CBD and Oral Health
But vaping CBD is not like vaping nicotine. It’s a wellness tool. It should be used strategically. There is no reason why you should vape CBD all day long.
So realistically, having 20-30 puffs of high-quality CBD hemp extract will not damage your teeth or gums.
Nicotine addicts puff hundreds of times per day.
But if you are still concerned that vaping CBD might hurt your teeth or gums, follow these tips and you will have practically zero risk of long-term oral health problems.
- Don’t vape CBD all day long as you would nicotine. Find your right dosage and stick with it
- Drink plenty of water to avoid dry mouth
- Don’t use menthol flavors
- Keep good dental hygiene – brush, floss and see your dentist regularly.
- Avoid PG (propylene glycol) . Choose an CBD vape juice that’s MCT-based or 100% VG (vegetable glycerin).
- Vape CBD at low temp, wattage, voltage
- Avoid CBD vape products with a lot of added terpenes. Terpenes can be very harsh when heated
Vaping has a bad reputation. A lot has to do with unfounded myths. But some issues are more realistic, but they only should worry people who are compelled to vape habitually because of nicotine addiction.
Vaping CBD in the right way will not hurt your teeth or gums.
I like to compare vaping to alcohol.
Vaping CBD responsibly is like having a glass of red wine per day.
Vaping high-nicotine products is like drinking a quart of cheap scotch per day.
The CBD movement has ushered in a new era of wellness. Our health decisions are now in our own hands. We do the research and make our own choices.
Vaping CBD can offer immediate relief for a lot of things – and is very safe if used smartly.
So smile! Vaping CBD is wonderful and will not mess up your teeth.
