    I recently started getting more into vaping in an effort to cut down on smoking so much bud. I’m trying to just stick with cbd-only products for a bit, of nothing else for a tolerance break, but also hope to see some improvements in my motivation. Anyway, I’ve been getting my cbd from CBDistillery and I just bought the KandyPen RUBI. I’ve been kind of just arbitrarily mixing cbd terpsolate with mct oil this past week (maybe 1:1 or 1:2), but was hoping to find some guidelines on a good ratio to work with. If anybody can point me in the direction for such or offer their own mixing recipes, I’d really appreciate it.

    I was also wondering what yall’s thoughts on and experiences with using mct oil as a carrier are? I’ve noticed a slight wheezy cough after vaping with it all night, but it goes away pretty quick after my last puff (maybe 20 mins). Is this common? I’m assuming it’s the mct, but am hoping it’s just because I’m using too high a ratio of mct:cbd, or maybe just low-quality mct oil. I’m a bit concerned about the byproducts of vaping PG and VG, whereas I feel more confident of mct’s chemical stability based on my (limited) chemistry knowledge. Nonetheless, I am getting this cough. Any insights on this would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    MCT or medium chain triglycerides are a form of lipids. Lipids (fats are one) should never be inhaled as they can cause a lipid pneumonia.

    I found a rather detailed thread on another forum you may be interested in reading. It will give you some guidance on how to make pure cannabis concentrate... among other things.

    MCT is best for CBD isolate and sublingual use.

    PG breaks down cbd powder or crystals (or terpsolate). Mix them and heat in the bottle. Then add VG. Great for vaping. Unsure how to avoid PG or VP unless you use a dab pen.

    I ended up mixing 1:1 with mct oil. Tried some PG, but couldn’t stand the taste. The cbd-mct mix causes a small amount of irritation after a full night of vaping, but not as bad as before (which I think was like 1:3 cbd:mct); I’m not noticing the dry cough I was having before either, maybe was the mix or just a mild throat cold. Next order I make, I’ll probably up the ratio to 2:1 cbd:mct.
