Plenty of vape companies market their ranges as being specifically designed for this style of vaping. This isn’t often actually the case. Most of the time the pens included will already be part of their range for vaping ‘traditional’ e-liquids.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing – plenty of them such as VSAVI are market leaders who develop outstanding products.
Where these exist they tend to be top of the range and designed for dry herb vaping, and are rarely if ever sold as part of a vape starter kit.
Tank Or Cartridge?
When choosing a starter kit, perhaps the first thing to consider is whether you would prefer a tank or cartridge based system.
The advantage of a tank is that it can be filled at leisure with a liquid of any strength and is cross-compatible – although we’d recommend using a dedicated unit for this style of vaping. Replacement atomizers are cheap and widely available.
Alternatively, you can look for kits that use cartridge-based systems. These can be either refillable or disposable, and generally speaking use a much purer form of CBD compared to that found in the majority of e-liquids.
Most of the time they are unflavoured and aim to deliver as full-on a delivery of healthy (non-psychoactive) cannabinoids as possible.
What To Look For
One of the many great things about this kind of vaping is that the e-liquids do not really require a huge amount of power.
Any CBD pen that offers between 3.7-4.2 volts (pretty much all of them) will be able to adequately heat these specialist e-liquids. Simple as that may sound, there can be surprisingly considerable differences in quality even between low powered vape pens.
One of the drawbacks of a basic CBD vape kit is that it may offer a very limited range in power.
Head a little further upmarket and for just a little more, devices become considerably more powerful and flexible in regards to temperature ranges and battery life.
For the casual vaper this may not be that big of a deal, but for those intending on daily use, it’s a sensible investment that will have long-term rewards.
Another alternative could be to consider box mods (such as the XEO Void Vaporizer). These are much more powerful units that are starting to be included in a few CBD vape kits. While they do require a little more upkeep, they are an ideal choice for people intending on using a higher VG e-liquid for some heady cloud-chasing.
Generally speaking, these have lowered in cost over recent years and can be an ideal way of enjoying this kind of vaping.
Buy A Starter Kit That Works For You
When considering which kit always look a little beyond the bottom line (price).
Manufacturers do vary in quality considerably and most of the big names with the best reputations for standard vaping have now entered the CBD scene in one form or another.
Always take the time to check out the reviews from current users as these can be enlightening.
Pay particular notice to the likes of atomizer longevity and battery life if you intend to use your vape pen on a very regular basis. It’s also worth looking into the variety of strengths of CBD e-liquids that they have on offer/include within the pack.
Reputations are hard earned in this incredibly competitive industry, so bear that in mind when making your decision.
