One of the many great things about CBD is that there are a multitude of different ways to use it to help with different ailments. Most of the time, it’s used for pain relief. The method of vaping CBD helps with immediacy, as patients with chronic illnesses oftentimes don’t have the luxury to wait 30 minutes or longer for an edible to kick in, for instance.

Types of CBD Vapes

There are different kinds of smoking devices to vape CBD. Most of them, like cartridges, pods, and disposables are pretty straightforward so even inexperienced CBD vapers can easily use them. 

Refillable vape pens are way more cost-effective but a bit more advanced than disposables. Nothing crazy though – with a bit of practice, these devices are incredibly simple to use. 

Disposable CBD Pens

This is the easiest and most affordable way to vape CBD. They are lightweight, cigarette-looking pens that are filled with CBD vape juice. You can usually get about 100 puffs from one and simply throw it out afterwards!

CBD Oil Cartridges

Oil Cartridges look more like vape tanks, which are the devices most commonly associated with vaping. CBD Oil Cartridges also come pre-filled with about 0.5 to 1 ml of CBD vape juice. 

CBD Pods

Probably the reason why vaping CBD (and overall vaping) got so popular. Remember JUUL? These e-cigs pods can now be swapped for CBD vape juice pods and voilá, you have your very own CBD Pod. 

Refillable CBD Vape Pen

This is where we get a bit more pro. CBD Vape Pens allow you to fill up the tank of your pen yourself. Like we mentioned earlier, not every CBD product is meant to be vaped, so make sure to use CBD vape juice specifically. 

Benefits of CBD Vaping 

The biggest benefit is the quickness at which CBD works when vaped. Like we mentioned earlier, CBD is used by a lot of patients that suffer from chronic illnesses. Vaping sends the actives right to the bloodstream, having an almost immediate effect on the patient. This is also why it’s important to make sure the CBD products you’re consuming are safe. There are also the added benefits of higher purity and fewer ingredients, customization, and added relaxation that make vaping CBD many patients preferred method.
