What are disposable vapes?
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found within and extracted from hemp and cannabis plants that has many potential therapeutic benefits. Being non-psychoactive means that it does not provide mind altering effects or a 'high'. The psychoactive properties of cannabis are mostly attributed to THC, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, and a few other minor cannabinoids that appear in varying levels depending on the individual cannabis strain where the extraction is taken from.
CBD was first discovered in 1940 by Roger Adams at the University of Illinois. This discovery was an important milestone for the study of cannabinoids which led to further research into the therapeutic benefits of the CBD molecule.
Taking CBD is widely done for its many reported benefits and can be used for:
- Stress disorders and for helping reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Aiding better sleep as CBD can be effective for insomnia and a broken sleeping pattern
- Helping sports recovery and other aches and pains of joints and muscles
- It's anti-inflammatory properties
CBD is (most often) isolated using sophisticated and advanced methods of extraction and is available in a number of forms, most commonly CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD and full spectrum CBD. There are very few side effects from CBD use, it has a great safety profile and can be easily incorporated into any healthy lifestyle or wellness routine.
CBD is legal in the UK, in parts of Europe, and in many other places around the world. You should always check the laws where you are and if you plan to travel.

Holy Grail wide spectrum cannabinoid pen
Full spectrum CBD contains a wide range of naturally occurring compounds from the cannabis plant including other cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. There is an effect called 'The Entourage Effect', where it is thought that all of the natural compounds work together synergistically to create a greater effect. People opt for a full spectrum product because it is more naturally complete and offers a greater or fuller effect due to the presence of other cannabinoids and naturally occurring compounds.
Full spectrum products do contain trace amounts of THC and other cannabinoids, so it's recommended to be wary of this if you have any restrictions due to work or sporting regulations. We also advise you to check with your healthcare professional if you have any concerns regarding the use with medicines, or potential negative effects due to existing healthcare and psychological conditions.
As full spectrum CBD gummies contain trace amounts of THC and other cannabinoids it's advisable to always shop with a reputable retailer that sources products from top manufacturers and provides 3rd party lab analysis.

Some of the best disposable vape flavours are sweet and fruity options, but there's a whole host to choose from.
There's also an abundance of CBD and other disposable cannabinoid vapes available. Vaping CBD or cannabinoid products is a very simple and effective way to get your daily dose. No need for complex vape pens, simply start with one of many different CBD vapes.
The benefits of disposable vapes
As well as being a great alternative to smoking cigarettes, there are many benefits of using disposable vapes. They are incredibly popular right now so let's take a look at some of the main benefits.
CBD gummies come measured to make dosing simple. You will find that (almost always) CBD gummies are measured in mg per gummy. This way you can easily keep track of your dosage by monitoring how many edibles you eat.
You have an option to choose a gummy that suits your strength needs per gummy, or to choose CBD gummies that you can eat multiples of to meet your dosage requirements (if you prefer to eat more gummies because, well, why not?).
Simplicity and ease of use
The effects that can be felt from CBD vary from person to person. We each have our own unique physiology, metabolisation rate and tolerance. When starting with CBD it is important to remember that it is different for each person and some initial experimentation is necessary.
How many CBD gummies should you eat? It all depends on the CBD strength and your requirements, but always check the manufacturer's guidelines and dosage advice. For first time users, it is also always recommended to start with a low dose and top up until you reach the desired effect.
Typical dosages are:
- Low - 5-20 mg per day for general wellness
- Medium - 20-50 mg per day for managing anxiety, sleeping issues or chronic pain
- High - 50 mg and above, for those suffering from considerable pain disorders, anxiety and other severe symptoms
Starting with a low dose allows you to see how your body reacts, and if you aren't getting the relief or relaxation you desire, you can then gradually increase the dose. CBD gummies can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to work, so be patient to avoid wasting your CBD gummies.
Variety of vape flavours and strengths
When you shop for a disposable vape you can be sure that there will be a vape with a flavour and strength profile to suit your individual needs. You will find organic, vegan friendly, THC free vapes in a whole host of flavours, each with their own throat-feel and drag feel. Top vape brands like Elf Bar and Lost Mary offer a high quality vapour with a great drag-feel, flavour and compact size suitable for on the go, or in the comfort of your home.
When you choose a disposable vape you have the option to try different varieties of vape flavours without being tied down to a whole bottle of a specific e-liquid. Typically disposable vapes contain 1-2 ml of concentrated vape juice with some vapes containing up to 600 or more puffs.
Discreet and convenient
Disposable vapes are not only ready to go and highly reliable but they take up very little space and are easily transported and stored. More often than not they can be tucked into your pocket or bag ready for when you need it.
Don't worry about cleaning or topping up, once the vapour stops coming out of your disposable vape it is finished and it's time to try a new flavour. If you're worried about big clouds of vapour then you can opt for vapes with less cloud properties.
