Cannabidiol, often called CBD, is a cannabinoid extracted from cannabis plants that is used for its many therapeutic and wellness properties. There are several reported health benefits of using CBD products, including reduction in inflammation, fast pain relief, the treatment of skin ailments, and anxiety and stress relief, to name just a few.
CBD is renowned for its diverse range of applications and huge variety of ways in which to take it. You can find products like:
- CBD vape pens and disposable CBD vape pens
- CBD edibles
- CBD oils
- CBD herbs and solids
- CBD lotions, creams and balms
With so many ways to take CBD it can be hard to decide what is best for you. In this guide discover the pros and cons of using disposable vape products as opposed to other consumption methods.

What are disposable CBD vapes?
Disposable CBD vape devices are single-use CBD inhalation devices that come pre-filled with CBD vape juice or CBD vape oil and a readily charged battery.
CBD vape devices are extremely simple to use, no need for topping up your vape CBD oil or recharging your battery, simply open the package and start puffing right away. Commonly disposable CBD vape devices contain up to 200 or more puffs and each brand has its own unique CBD e-liquid recipe.
You can choose from hundreds of different styles, flavours and strengths and find the perfect combination for you. Check our huge range of the latest disposable vape products for the lowest prices and best deals on multi-buys.
Vape vs other methods of taking CBD
As we look at the pros and cons of these different product types it is important to note that not one CBD product type is superior to another. It comes down to your personal requirements on product strength, when and why you choose to take CBD and how it fits into your lifestyle and routine, as well as the quality of your CBD product.
When shopping for CBD you should always use a trusted retailer with plenty of experience with CBD products. Look for 3rd party lab tested products and those that provide an analysis report of the purity and strength of the CBD.
Trusted retailers source only the finest CBD products from around the globe and at ICE Headshop we offer unbeatable prices and customer service.
CBD vape vs edibles
Let's look at the main pros and cons of vapes and edibles. Each has great benefits and their differences too!
Vaping CBD is arguably the fastest way to feel reported effects. The effects of vapour inhalation can be felt almost immediately, meaning those who need fast relief from pain and stress, or a quick aid for helping with sleep can use it as and when they need.
Vaping CBD is relatively hassle free. Most disposable CBD vape pens can be used right away and are reasonably priced.
Although the fastest way to absorb CBD, the inhalation of vapour does pose some potential health concerns. Vaping is not recommended for people with lung problems and other respiratory issues.
Many disposable vapes are made of plastic and other non-recyclable materials. The battery components and other small parts also have the potential to cause danger to the environment and wild animals.
CBD edibles are almost certainly one of the most interesting ways to ingest CBD. They come in many shapes, sizes and flavours and are simply delicious. Choose from many product types each with its own unique cannabinoid profile and flavour.
CBD edibles are also discreet, easy to use and transport in a bag or pocket. CBD edibles are generally not large, they come in gummy bear form, as chocolate bars, biscuits and even in teabags and boiled sweets. You will often find vegan and 100% natural edibles.
One of the only downsides is that CBD edibles can take a long time to work because they have to go through a metabolisation process in the stomach. Often this process can lead to less CBD being absorbed as some of the CBD is lost during the process.
CBD edibles often contain sugar, so be sure to check the contents of your product if you have any special medical or dietary requirements. Although CBD edibles are often 100% natural, be aware of the potential for high levels of sugar.
CBD vape vs CBD oils
CBD vapes and oils are two products that are both incredibly popular. Let us take a look at why.
CBD oil is a firm favourite amongst CBD users around the world. The variety in strength, level of purity, as well as diversity of flavour is astonishing. There is definitely a CBD oil out there for everyone. Choose from a variety of strengths and bottle sizes, isolate, broad spectrum and full spectrum profiles.
CBD oil can be taken very quickly either dropped in food or drink or directly under the tongue. You will find CBD oils that are highly bioavailable and are easily absorbed into your system. Taking CBD oils orally and in food or drink can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours to feel the effects, good for that morning start or afternoon top up. CBD oral oil can also be easily incorporated into your daily routine.
CBD oil is not always easy to dose. If taken sublingually then you might want a mirror to check how many drops you're using. If you're trying to be discreet with your CBD intake then oil probably isn't the one for you, as people are often curious and may ask questions.
The time it takes for oral oil CBD to be absorbed into the body can vary depending on your metabolism and lifestyle as well as many other factors. For quick relief or an instant effect then CBD oral oil is probably not the best option.
CBD vapes can contain as much (or if you want, more) CBD as a high quality CBD oral oil. During metabolisation some CBD is lost from oral oils while CBD vape products allow you to absorb most of the CBD meaning you can get better value for money.
CBD vapes are a very fast acting, efficient and cost effective way to get your CBD dose. You can find strong and long lasting vape juice and CBD e-liquids available at great prices. Vaping a quality e-liquid is as effective as any other method of taking CBD.
Remember, always check with your health professional or GP about using CBD and if you're taking other medications.
There is not necessarily a superior product in terms of a comparison of vape vs other CBD products as each individual has preferences and methods that work best. Vaping is a very accessible way to get CBD as there are so many choices in flavour and strengths, and vaping itself is quite popular. However, if it isn't right for you for whatever reason, there are many other ways to enjoy CBD.
If you are considering using a CBD product, whether it is a vape product, an edible or cosmetic balm, there are a few simple steps to follow to ensure you get a quality product:
- Shop with a trusted retailer, like ICE Headshop, where our experts source the finest CBD products from around the globe.
- Look for certified and lab tested products. When you buy a lab tested product you can be sure that you know the amount of CBD it contains, it's strength, and the purity of the CBD.
- Be flexible. Don't be afraid to try new products and at different points throughout your day to see what works best for you. Consult your doctor, start with a low dose and build up until you get the results you desire.
