No matter what products you choose to vape, access to the items you need may have gotten challenging during the pandemic. If you like to buy locally but found that your favorite shop no longer has your chosen products, you may have had to start a search for a new favorite. Online access has gotten more difficult for legal buyers because of the risk of delivering vaping products to children. Users need to be aware of what these rulings and regulations have done to their favorite stores and products.
The law requiring an age check before delivering vaping products is a rule that makes sense on the surface and creates a nightmare of fuss and bother in the real world. For adults who enjoy vaping tobacco products, having to be home to get your shipment means that you
- may miss out because you are at work
- may miss work while you wait for your delivery
- pay more because the store has to add shipping fees
Additionally, fake IDs that used to work at bars can easily be shown to the delivery person by the teenager who is not supposed to receive the product. If your employer offers you the chance to receive packages at the office, consider switching your delivery.
The Farm Bill of 2018 legalized the production of hemp and the sale of hemp products containing cannabidiol or CBD. While it is true that hemp is a plant within the cannabis family, nearly all hemp plants contain less than .3% tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.
CBD is referred to as non-euphoria inducing. It cannot get you high. Many users choose to vape with CBD to
- reducing unhelpful, anxious thoughts
- managing chronic pain
- fighting insomnia
- boosting their immune system, especially against autoimmune challenges
Additionally, CBD has been approved by the FDA in the treatment of seizure disorders in children, and research into treatments for migraines, anxiety, stress, and pain management are ongoing.
Anyone buying CBD products online should carefully review the third-party certifications offered by the seller. These certifications are an additional testing step, paid for by the seller, that confirm what is on the label is what is actually in your vaping cartridge.
Even if you live somewhere that THC, also known as the cannabis compound that does get you high, can be bought online, take the time to shop with a critical eye. If THC is illegal in your state, a reputable shop will not ship to you. Anyone offering to ship to you illegally may not be following other rules, and the product in your vaping juice is probably suspect.
Getting your vaping products delivered has gotten a bit harder, but quality vaping stores are still producing a good product. You should expect to need to sign for your product, so it may be a good idea to either get things delivered to your office or to arrange to work from home on delivery day. Additionally, you may want to set up a subscription or keep a spare cartridge in a cool, dark spot for an emergency.
