Hello again, vaping lovers.
Today from Cali Terpenes, we want to solve most of the doubts about e-liquids, all those frequent questions that you ask us and that we believe it is important to explain to the whole community.
F.A.Q. and information about e-liquids, by Cali Terpenes:
What composition do e-liquids have?
Aromas are usually added to this base, which can be chemical or botanical (in the case of the Cali Terpenes, botanical aromas).
You can also add other elements like CBD or nicotine.
It’s important to pay attention to the composition of the e-liquid that you are going to choose, which does not contain toxic or illegal elements or substances. That is why we always recommend acquiring branded e-liquids in the legal market.
What composition do Cali Terpenes e-liquids have?
Our e-liquids have the lowest concentration of Vegetable Glycerin on the market, that’s one of the reasons to be the healthiest eliquids.
What is healthier? Smoke or vape?
Vaporizing eliquids is according to many studies and clinical trials from around the world around 95% healthier than smoking.
So yes, vaping is healthier than smoking.
Visit our post “smoking vs vaping” for more information on the subject.
What vaporizer to use for e-liquids?
For tasty and as healthy vaping as possible (thanks to an optimal vaporization temperature), we recommend using vaporizers with resistances between 1 and 2 ohm (0.5 if it were ceramic) and powers of maximum 30W.
The vaporizer for e-liquids with the highest resistance and durability that we offer is the Eleaf x Just Fog kit.
What is the correct temperature to vaporize e-liquid?
The healthiest and most effective e-liquid vaporization temperature is around 200ºC.
If you increase the temperature for example to 250 degrees, any eliquid can start generating toxic by-products.
On the other hand, too high a vaporization temperature will only generate more steam, but the taste will worsen.
What is the best resistance to vape e-liquids?
Avoiding the quick overheating of the resistance, the vaporization temperature stays much better and a tastier and healthier vaping is achieved.
It’s also true that some ceramic resistances for e-liquid, usually offer better flavor than conventional resistances, even if you choose one of less resistance, so with this resistances you could work from 0.5 ohm with the same benefits.
We advise that you shouldn’t vaporize with atomizers less than 1 ohm, as the flavor will worsen, despite removing more steam. The temperature will no longer be optimal and the formulation of the eliquids may destabilize and generate toxic by-products.
That is why Cali Terpenes does NOT recommend Sub-Hom vaping (except in the indicated cases)
What does it mean to vaporize Sub-Hom?
Sub-ohm vaping means using very low resistances, below 1 ohm, usually with especially low resistances like 0.1 ohm.
This type of vaporization has the sole purpose of generating more steam.
We know that it can be very good on social networks, but we do not recommend it, since the vaporization temperature is not adequate and can cause health problems.
Also, with vaporizers like the Eleaf x Just Fog Kit you will get enough steam to share a great post on instagram 🙂
Are e-liquids toxic?
E-liquids, if are professionally formulated, are non-toxic. It is true that they are not 100% harmless, but they are at least 95% healthier than smoking.
It’s also true that there are eliquids and vaporizers with cannabis products on the market (both legal and illegal) that contain toxic or illegal products, that is why we recommend established brands and buy in the legal market to avoid problems.
Cali Terpenes assures you the best quality of raw materials. Furthermore, the formulation has been developed in collaboration with the doctor Mariano García de Palau.
Are e-liquids used to quit smoking cigarettes?
Vaping e-liquids can be an alternative to quit smoking. As we have previously commented, it is also healthier than smoking (as long as they are properly made products from the legal market).
Cali Terpenes believes that it is better to choose nicotine-free e-liquids, since it is a highly toxic substance that your body does not need. In addition, a few days after vaping (especially with CBD eliquids), there is no longer a physical addiction to this substance.
What is the difference between e-liquids with terpenes and e-liquids with CBD?
Our eliquids with terpenes contain:
- Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin in 90/10 ratio
- Terpenes from Cali Terpenes of botanical origin
In the first version we offer the possibility of enjoying the characteristic flavor of the most famous cannabis varieties, thus avoiding the risks derived from combustion.
With the CBD version you can also enjoy the benefits of CBD in conjunction with each terpene profile (cannabis aromas).
Can I make my own e-liquid, like CBD e-liquid or terpenes e-liquid?
At Cali Terpenes we not only offer our line of ready-to-use e-liquids, we also offer you all the necessary elements to create your own cannabis flavored e-liquid with or without CBD.
Can I add cannabinoids to e-liquids?
Yes, you can add cannabinoids to e-liquids.
To do this, you can starting with an e-liquid already prepared (starting for example with our eliquid with terpenes) or create your own e-liquid “from scratch”, using propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, terpenes and cannabinoids, which you can get for example in a cannabis concentrate like “rosin“.
The option that we recommend the most (especially for a homogeneous result or if you are going to use a large amount of cannabinoids) is to create your own e-liquid, since you have the option of adding each of the elements in your favorite proportion.
In addition, with this method you can use a magnetic stirrer, which allows the mixture to be much more homogeneous, faster and without effort.
You can see more information on how to “make your own cannabis flavored e-liquid with CBD” (is the same for adding THC).
Can I add THC to e-liquids?
Yes, as we explain in the previous question “can I add cannabinoids to e-liquids”, you can add THC to e-liquids.
Can I add CBD to e-liquids?
Yes, as we explained two questions before, you can add CBD to e-liquids.
Our CBD e-liquids already contain Cannabidiol, but if you need to add a higher concentration of CBD you can do it.
Can I dilute an extraction as “rosin” with the e-liquid?
Yes, you can add rosin to e-liquids in order to have an e-liquid with THC (as we explained previously).
You can also add little by little eliquid with terpenes to the rosin until you achieve the texture you want to make cartridges for “vape pen”.
Are e-liquids safe?
E-liquids are around 95% healthier than smoking, but like anything, should be consumed in moderation.
Would you not eat 3kg of macaroni in one day or drink 10 liters of water? Well, you do not have to vape 50ml of e-liquid in one day 🙂 Vape responsibly.
On the other hand, Cali Terpenes e-liquids have an high-quality formulation (with a low glycerin content for an healthiest vaping) and all raw materials comes from Europe to ensure a superior quality.
Don’t buy e-liquids in the illegal market, as they can be made with toxic elements.
There recent alarm, caused precisely by purchases on illegal market of “vape pens” with THC with some toxic elements present in them (specifically Vitamin E acetate) that caused problems for some of those who consumed them.
The brands in the legal market are subject to enough controls and regulations, and you can get them in most stores, grow shops and on the net.
Can e-liquids cause health problems?
As we explained in the previous question, e-liquids that are formulated with toxic elements, in most cases are illegal products. Those can cause health problems.
For this reason we recommend that always choose safe and certified products, such as Cali Terpenes e-liquids.
Are e-liquids flammable?
No, Cali Terpenes e-liquids are NOT flammable.
Do Cali Terpenes e-liquids contain Vitamine E?
Absolutely NO, Cali Terpenes e-liquids do not contain Vitamin E.
Do Cali Terpenes e-liquids contain MTC oil?
Do Cali Terpenes e-liquids contain diacetyl?
No, no toxic element has a place in the formulation of our e-liquids.
Do Cali Terpenes e-liquids contain THC?
No, Cali Terpenes e-liquids do not contain THC.
Can I test positive for a drug control with CBD e-liquids?
No, not with Cali Terpenes CBD e-liquids, because there isn’t thc inside.
There are brands that use broad spectrum CBD in some cases with a little THC presence, but the CBD used in the formulation of our e-liquids is 99.8% pure and there is no THC presence, so there is no way to test positive at a drogotest with our e-liquids.
Do Cali Terpenes e-liquids contain Nicotine?
No, Cali Terpenes e-liquids do not contain Nicotine.
You can add nicotine to your e-liquid if you wish, since if you remove the dropper cap from the e-liquid you can add whatever you want.
On the other hand, Cali Terpenes does NOT recommend the use of nicotine because it is highly toxic and addictive.
What is the origin of the aroma provided to Cali Terpenes e-liquids?
Our botanical aromas are made from terpenes of natural origin from all kinds of plants, flowers and fruits.
The Cali Terpenes flavorings do not contain additives or diluents and come from crops without GMOs (No gmo).
What is vegetable glycerin?
Vegetable glycerin is also known by the name of glycerol. It is extracted from some vegetable oils, such as coconut or palm oil. It is a colorless, odorless, sweet-tasting liquid and is soluble in both water and alcohol.
In the world of vaping, it has the function of providing thickness to the liquid (so that it does not sublime in vaporizers) and that it also creates more vapor when consumed.
What is Propylene Glycol?
Propylene glycol is a colorless, tasteless and odorless organic compound. It’s obtained by hydrating propylene oxide.
In the world of vaping, it has the function of acting as a base and conductive vehicle for other elements such as terpenes or CBD in our case.
Can I add more terpenes to Cali Terpenes e-liquids?
Yes, you can add more terpenes to our e-liquids, although you should bear in mind that they contain around 2 and 2.5% of terpenes depending on the variety.
In total into the e-liquid, we recommend that there be no more than 4% of terpenes
Are e-liquids with terpenes psychoactive?
No, e-liquids with terpenes are not psychoactive, you will never “get high”.
By the way, if you are under the influence of THC, our e-liquids with terpenes, because its formulation with terpenes, can modulate, enhance or lengthen the effect of the THC that you have at that moment.
Are CBD e-liquids psychoactive?
No, CBD e-liquids are not psychoactive, they do not “get high”.
Are the aromas from Cali Terpenes e-liquids organic?
Yes, the aromas of our e-liquids come from plants, they are not created from synthetic terpenes.
Feel the difference with Cali Terpenes 🙂
What are the varieties of Cali Terpenes e-liquids that are most similar to cannabis?
All! Although you must take into account several things:
1- The aroma provided is exactly that of each cannabis variety, but there are obvious differences between smoking and vaping eliquids: vaping e-liquids there is no combustion (which alters the taste), our vaping liquids do not contain vegetable matter (instead it is liquid and formed by PG and GV) and there is an absence of some cannabinoids (THC, CBG, ..) in addition to other lipids present in cannabis.
2- Vaping e-liquids with terpenes is more similar to vaporizing marijuana than smoking marijuana, the combustion influences and muddies the original flavor. If you have steamed or grown you will perfectly recognize each of the flavors, if not, it may cost you a little more.
2- If you are used to smoking, for example Amnesia, we would recommend starting with the eliquid with Amnesia terpenes (or Amnesia CBD) so that you can appreciate the faithful flavor provided in the formulation.
We have ever come across users who do not recognize any variety such as Gelato or Girl Scout Cookies in e-liquid or terpenes, but it is also true that these users acknowledged not having previously tried these strains on flowers, and don’t having grown them.
The result when trying eliquids of which they had tried the herb was much better. For this reason, we recommend starting with varieties you know and after, discovering other flavors, just like cannabis.
American varieties often have very different aromas than European varieties, such as Critical or Super Lemon Haze. Little by little the American ones are crossing with the European ones and they have more similar flavors (for example Lemon Cookies).
So, choose your favorite variety among the 15 available and … enjoy!
If you can’t find any of your favorites among these, remember that you can create your own e-liquid with any of the 47 varieties of terpene profiles (cannabis aromas) and an e-liquid base.
Why vape terpenes?
Vaping terpenes will allow you to enjoy the taste of your favorite cannabis variety in the healthiest way, without combustion.
In addition, terpenes separately and together have numerous properties and benefits.
To delve into the properties of terpenes, we recommend you visit our post “entourage effect” and the posts on isolated terpenes such as “Myrcene” or “Caryophyllene” in the category information on terpenes.
Why vape CBD?
As we mentioned before, CBD stimulates the natural response to stress, anxiety and some pain and illness.
More and more discoveries are being made about this non-psychoactive cannabinoid of great medicinal value.
Vaping CBD is a fast and effective way to consume CBD, being much healthier than smoking CBD flowers for example.
Why vape terpenes and CBD?
Consuming cannabinoids in isolation is not as effective as consuming cannabinoids along with terpenes.
Terpenes, in addition to modulating the effect of cannabinoids, allow greater absorption of cannabinoids.
This is known as the “entourage effect“.
Why vaping has been recently harassed by the media for being dangerous for the health?
Surely you have heard about the current alarmism about the use of vaporizers in the media.
News of US hospitalized vapers flew around the world without first investigating the cause. Once investigated, it was found that all the hospitalized had consumed THC vaporizers from the illegal market.
The final conclusion of the health authorities determined that the substance that caused respiratory problems was Vitamin E acetate.
Why did those “vape pens” contain vitamin E?
Distillate cartridges (or live resin or other cannabis concentrates) do NOT need Vitamin E. Vitamin E is used to mimic the texture of THC or CBD distillate, but starting with lower quality extractions.
Distillates, to be consumed in vape pens, only need terpenes to add flavor and to modulate the effect of cannabinoids according to the terpenes used.
On the other hand, properly made e-liquids are at least 95% healthier than tobacco, which is why some tobacco companies have also pushed to eliminate them, since they cannot dominate an existing market and with so many already established companies .
If you want to know more about tobacco vs eliquids, visit our post “smoking vs vaporizing“.
Our products are manufactured under the relevant regulations and under standardized conditions under the strictest controls. Furthermore, our products are made from ingredients of the highest quality and safety.
Are e-liquids with terpenes legal?
Yes, e-liquids with terpenes are legal in most countries, although there are exceptions (in countries where no vaping item is allowed).
Check the legislation of your country before making the purchase.
Are CBD e-liquids legal?
Yes, CBD e-liquids are legal in most countries, although there are exceptions (in countries where no vaping item is allowed).
Check the legislation of your country before making the purchase.
What are the differences between Cali Terpenes E-liquids and other brands?
Cali Terpenes e-liquids have one of the healthiest formulations on the vaping market, and it is due to:
1- They have been formulated in collaboration with the doctor Mariano Garcia de Palau, expert in vaping, cannabis and terpenes.
3- The aromas provided are of botanical origin, NOT of synthetic origin (like most e-liquids flavored with cake, donut, etc.). There are brands on the market that use synthetic flavors even to provide fruit flavors such as apple or strawberry (since they are cheaper).
Our aromas, in addition to coming from plants, provide a flavor with many different nuances, thanks to the presence of many different terpenes in each of the e-liquids.
Our cannabis aromas of botanical origin have a higher and more precise number of terpenes (when compared to other brands that use less terpenes or of synthetic origin).
Also, the CBD that our CBD e-liquids contain is 99.8% pure, unlike other brands that use lower purity CBD and sometimes with small traces of THC.
What is CBD base e-liquid Cali Terpenes?
If I buy the CBD e-liquid base, how many terpenes do I have to add?
Are e-liquids legal worldwide?
They are legal in most countries, but e-liquids are not legal worldwide, before buying, find out about the legislation in force in your country.
Can I mix different e-liquids?
Is not advisable to mix different e-liquids, because you could get an unsafe e-liquid and probably with a bad taste.
What is the best e-liquid?
If you are going to buy an e-liquid, it is legal in composition and you know the country of origin, since in countries such as Asia they have softer regulations when it comes to using components in vaping liquids.
Can e-liquids get bad or expire?
Yes, e-liquids have an expiration date like all consumer products (the date is indicated at the bottom of the e-liquid box).
We also advise you to store them in a dry place, away from heat sources and direct light for better conservation.
When do e-liquids expire?
The expiration date of each e-liquid comes in its packaging.
I have seen that you have two types of e-liquids with CBD, with 30mg and 100mg, which one to choose?
The concentration and amount of CBD required for each person is very relative.
If you have never tried CBD, you can start with 30mg and choose one of 100mg of the same variety so you can see the difference between them.
Why do Cali Terpenes e-liquids taste like cannabis?
Cali Terpenes e-liquids are available in 15 different flavors, all with cannabis aromas.
To create our e-liquids we use our terpenes (cannabis aromas), of botanical origin and free of GMOs and contaminants.
Do Cali Terpenes e-liquids contain cannabis?
No, our e-liquids are formulated with our botanical terpenes (aromas) that reproduce the aroma of marijuana, but composed by isolated terpenes from other plants, flowers and legal fruits throughout the world.
Despite having many elements in common with marijuana, they don’t come from it, making them legal almost everywhere in the world.
Can I vape e-liquids on the plane?
No, vaping is prohibited on airplanes.
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the main cannabinoids (chemical compounds) that are naturally present in Cannabis (or hemp).
It is obtained from the flowers of the plant and only some strains of Cannabis are rich in CBD, since until now most of them were high in THC, the psychoactive and best known cannabis cannabinoid.
Unlike THC, CBD does not have a psychoactive effect, that is, it does not “place”, but rather stimulates the body’s natural response to pain, anxiety and stress, according to numerous studies carried out around the world.
Find out more about this cannabinoid in our post “what is CBD“.
Do e-liquids work with CBD?
Vaping is one of the easiest, fastest, and most effective ways to consume CBD.
Bioavailability is higher and the effect more immediate (compared to oral or topical use).
Furthermore, it’s healthier than smoking CBD.
Do CBD e-liquids taste like cannabis?
In general, CBD e-liquids can have a neutral flavor (due to the absence of added aromas), flavor to different cannabis varieties (due to the presence of terpene profiles), or a donut or similar flavor (from synthetic flavorings).
For this reason, in the Cali Terpenes CBD e-liquids we use cannabis aromas of botanical origin.
Can e-liquids with CBD make you “high”?
No, CBD e-liquids cannot “make you high”, but you may feel relaxed with those with a more relaxing terpene profile (for example with Holy Grail Kush or Blackberry Kush) and somewhat more creative with varieties like Super Lemon Haze or Jamaican Dream, for the presence of terpenes and CBD.
How much e-liquid with CBD can you consume?
Although e-liquids are safer than smoking, we recommend vaping responsibly.
For example, drinking water is healthy, but drinking more water than you can can cause problems. The same with e-liquids.
How are CBD e-liquids used?
We always recommend using vaporizers with 1 to 2 ohm resistances and using maximum powers of 30w.
Like all e-liquids, shake well before using.
