That’s a popular question that we get asked often”Can CBD vape oil go bad?”. Especially for people who only use CBD vape oil on a “as-needed basis”. For example, you only use CBD vape oil in the evenings. When you’re mind is running at a hundred miles per hour and even the thought of not getting any shut eye keeps you up. Which for some is a huge problem, but they only have these problems once or twice a week. In this article, we’ll be answering all related questions about how to keep your CBD vape safe for those times when you really need to just take a puff and and sit back.
Yes, CBD vape oil can go bad and will be less effective with time. The average shelf life of CBD vape Oil is 12-24 months when properly stored in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight. Do not store products in the refrigerator as the vape oil will tend to crystallize. Most CBD brands use a best by date which you’ll find printed on the packaging.
Can I still use expired CBD vape oil?
Expiration dates on CBD Vape Oils refer to the CBD quality and not necessarily it’s safety. What this means is the oil’s potency/ strength will begin to deteriorate and become less effective. A quick example would be a 1000mg bottle of CBD 3 months past its expiration date will now be a 900mg.
So, the answer is yes, you can still use expired CBD vape juice but it will not be as potent and effective as it was when you first purchased it. Also use common sense, if a bottle is 5 years old it’s time to dispose of it and pick yourself up a new bottle.
