We were chatting just the other day about how surprisingly few decent quality CBD additives there are on the UK scene.
Lo and behold, then we stumbled across the Nano Shot from CBD Asylum which has somehow flown under our radar!
We’re already big fans of their range and in fairness, it has only been out a short while so right away we placed an order.
As usual, it arrived the next day (you need place an order before 3pm for same day dispatch) and it was time to add it straight to our daily nicotine-based juice.
What’s A CBD Additive?
Some people aren’t all that keen to keep their CBD separate from their standard vaping setup.
We usually recommend that people do in order to help measure dosage (especially with higher strength compounds) but in fairness, carrying around two kits can be a bit of a faff.
There’s also the fact that not very many good quality e-liquids come with decent flavours (or any flavouring at all for that matter) which seems a pity seeing as there are so many out there for ‘standard’ vaping.
The point of an additive is that it’s high strength concentrate – in this case, a very decent 320mg – which you apply to any general e-liquid.
Remember that there are plenty of very good nicotine-free juices available as well, so you needn’t fret about having nicotine alongside your CBD unless you want to.
It makes no difference to the taste, and the only practical pointer would be to try and apply the compound to the tank before the e-liquid, and remember to give it a decent shake too.
What Makes The Nano Shot Stand Out?
It’s a full spectrum extract that’s not just CBD but also contains all the other goodness which is naturally present in hemp.
Plenty of terpenes and of course dozens of other cannabinoids to supplement those our body makes itself, but often struggles to produce enough of. Hence the ‘full spectrum’ label which is usually only found oral drops or oral sprays.
It may be a personal opinion but many aficionados would agree that this is the most effective form of CBD to be found.
It’s also usually more expensive, which is why we were surprised that this additive was so reasonably priced especially given the strength!
It’s tasteless and odourless; meaning that all you’re doing is massively fortifying your daily vape with goodness.
What About Dosage?
When it comes to vaping CBD e-liquids you need to be careful on your dosage.
Not because you are going to ‘overdose’ – that is impossible as it is inherently benign anyway (no THC) – but just as a matter of sensible economy.
Good quality e-liquids tend to be quite pricey, especially for impoverished scribes like us, so it’s important to make it stretch out. How better than just adding a few drops to your standard vape?
We’re not quite sure what the ‘nano technology’ is that they refer to on the packaging, but what counts is the strength and quality of the extract.
If you have a 2ml capacity tank for your device, we’d suggest no more is needed than a 0.2ml per fill.
Obviously, you can add more or less, but at that economy, you will have enough from the 10ml bottle for 50 refills – so for most people a couple of months worth of vaping.
The only ingredients are:
Vegetable Glycerin (60%)
Propylene Glycol (30%)
Nano CBD Solution (10%)
So this will be denser liquid than usual which makes it even more handy for adding just a little with.
All of their range is exclusively sourced from top tier unadulterated organic hemp with no chemicals used at any stage of the manufacturing process. Plus it’s vegan and kosher friendly. Highly recommended indeed.

This is a very impressive product! In fact, the consensus is that this is going to be a regular feature in our vape tanks and short fills for the foreseeable future.
The beauty of vaping CBD is that it is by a considerable distance the fastest way to get it into your bloodstream while bypassing the liver which can filter out some of the quality.
The only problem is that it has a lower longevity, so when vaping throughout the day that the problem is also addressed.
A top quality extract that already plenty of other people are raving about.
Consider us part of the party - this stuff is really great!
60% VG / 30% PG / 10% CBD
Very easy to use
Full spectrum terpenes
Not suitable for those who have an intolerance to Propylene Glycol (PG).
Whilst the taste is almost flavourless, which is great for those who dislike the taste of hemp, it can be very easy to add too much to your existing juice. Therefore this product may be more suitable for use in short fills so you know exactly how much you're consuming.
