Taken separately, vaping and CBD represent two of the hottest trends in cannabis. Together, they’re absolute dynamite, combining the high-tech efficiency and convenience of the vape pen with the beneficial effects (and low psychoactivity) of high-CBD cannabis.
That said, choosing a CBD vape can be harder than it seems: There are a lot of new products hitting the shelves seemingly every day, and it can be difficult to differentiate among the many options. We’ll share a bit of background on both CBD and vape pens, and then let you know about some truly exciting CBD vapes we’re currently stocking!
CBD Vape Basics: What Is CBD?
CBD is the second most common cannabinoid—or cannabis’ “active ingredient”—after THC. It isn’t a type of cannabis, but rather a compound found to some degree in nearly all cannabis.
Until recently, CBD received far less attention than THC, but that’s changing rapidly. While it doesn’t impart any of THC’s “high,” it is mildly psychoactive, imparting what’s usually described as a very mild, calming “buzz.”
If CBD doesn’t get us high, it’s demonstrated some extraordinarily useful benefits. You can read more about this fascinating cannabinoid here.
CBD Vape Basics: What’s a Vape?
Short for “vaporizor pen,” a vape is a small battery-powered device designed to vaporize a tiny quantity of cannabis concentrate. Because it heats this concentrate just to the point at which its oils volatize rather than burning plant material, it’s objectively less harmful to our lungs and airways. What’s more, vapes are convenient, reliable, and discreet. No wonder they’re fast becoming one of America’s favorite ways to consume cannabis!

Cannatonic 2:1 CBD Cartridge by Mfused
Cannatonic is a unique hybrid was bred specifically to deliver a high CBD content while retaining some THC effectiveness. While it’s not free of psychoactivity, fans love its relatively short-lived and mellow high and is a favorite among the medical community.
CBD Sour Harle Tsu by Optimum Extracts
Winner of both the Dope Cup’s “Best CBD Concentrate of 2016” and “Best CBD Oil 2017” awards, this world-class CBD powerhouse is a godsend. As one of the first strains developed for its CBD, Harle Tsu is also one of the most beloved.
1:1 CBD Buddha’s Smile by AiroPro
The practice of reintroducing terpenes to purified cannabis extracts is a contentious one. While we’ll remain carefully neutral on the topic, we can say that this potent, compact cartridge designed for AiroPro devices is a uniquely convenient option for those on the go, and we like the “wild orange blossom” flavor. It’s pleasant and invigorating, but not overdone.
