Disposable CBD Vapes – What You Need to Know
Let's talk about everything CBD disposable vape devices; what are they, why use them and what do they do?
Arguably one of the easiest ways to try CBD for the first time, disposable CBD vapes are a great way for vapers to try CBD or enjoy it on the go. Let’s go over some of the important things you should know about them.
What are disposable CBD vapes?
Disposable CBD vapes are hand-held vape devices that allow users to vape CBD liquid on the go. Usually, these devices are non-refillable and single-use. They can also come in a variety of flavours that make vapes even more enjoyable.
Our Cali Greens range of disposable CBD vapes include the flavours Granddaddy purple (grape), Amnesia Mango, Blackcurrant Ice and Lemon Haze. CBD Go boasts at least 500 puffs and 150mg of CBD in the 2.5ml liquid contained in the device.
How are CBD vape liquids different from nicotine E-Liquids?
CBD vape liquids feature Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine as a base just like nicotine-containing E-Liquids. These two chemicals help create a liquid able to be vaped and carry the additional flavours added to the vape liquid.
Where it differs, normal E-Liquids either contain nicotine, nicotine salts or are nicotine-free with the intention of mixing with nicotine shots. CBD vape liquids instead include cannabidiol, the naturally occurring chemical compound found in hemp plants.
Whereas nicotine-containing E-Liquids can be addictive due to the nicotine in them, CBD is not addictive. A 2016 study concluded this after testing that CBD did not display addictive behaviours in the subjects of the study. This is why some vapers looking to move away from nicotine have been making the switch to CBD vapes.
Our CBD Go disposable devices are made with CBD Isolate – the purest form of naturally occurring CBD, from high-quality CBD sustainably grown in Colorado. CBD Isolate does not contain THC, the psychoactive element of cannabis.
What does it feel like to vape CBD, will it get me high?
You may have already tried vaping and are familiar with the feeling which is not too dissimilar.
If you’re looking to switch from smoking to vaping and have never vaped before, then it may feel a little strange to you. We promise it’s nothing like inhaling smoke, vapour is much thinner and more pleasant to inhale. Unlike nicotine-based E-Liquids, you don’t need to hold in your CBD vape when you inhale to get the effect of CBD. Holding your breath while vaping can irritate the lungs, so it’s best to exhale once you’ve drawn the vapour into your lungs.
CBD vapes offer a quicker absorption of CBD due to the vapour being inhaled, with some users claiming a feeling of calm or relaxation. You won’t experience a euphoric feeling as some may think when taking CBD, this is because the compound that creates this (THC) is not present in CBD vapes.
How much should I vape?
Most people are recommended to start at 10mg per day but the dosage per person really does differ. It’s important to note that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) state that you should have no more than 70mg a day.
There are tons of factors that can mean your dosage is different from others, from the method of taking CBD to your body type. We suggest a steady approach and taking 2-3 puffs a day to see how you feel. If the CBD effect isn’t strong enough for you then gradually increase your puffs over the next few days until the desired effect.

Moving from disposable vapes
Disposable CBD vapes are a great way to try CBD if you’re already a vaper, as they offer an easy way to vape without any prior knowledge or equipment. For those who enjoy vaping CBD and have done so for a while, we recommend upgrading to using a refillable vape pen or ‘tank style’ vape with a battery. This not only works as a more cost-effective method but gives you greater leeway to tailor your CBD intake or try the greater variety of flavours available on the market.
