If you are new to vaping, there is a whole new world waiting for you to discover. Vaping is the more socially acceptable and safer method of using your favorite substance. That could be tobacco, or cannabis, or any of a wide choice of CBD products. Cannabidiol – or CBD – can be legally sold in the USA as long as it is grown from the hemp strain of the plant, and contains very little THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive element of the cannabis plant.)
For newcomers there is a lot of jargon to overcome, and in a competitive and often changing market such as vaping, it helps to know some of the basics. For example, you want to buy a device to vape CBD. Your choice is vast, so where do you start? We suggest the increasingly popular CBD dab pen as your starting point, so let’s explain what a dab pen is and how it differs to other vape pens.
What is a Dab Pen?
First, we should explain that while early vape pens were shaped like pens – hence the name – modern versions come in a range of shapes and styles but remain known as pens. There are several different types of vape pen. There are disposable pens that come pre-filled with flavored e-liquids. There are refillable pens for vaping dry herb such as cannabis. Then there’s the Dab Pen for CBD Concentrate or cannabis concentrate.
Concentrate is extracted from the hemp as CBD or from the cannabis plant as weed. It is processed into a concentrated wax form that is more potent than burning the leaves. This is a cleaner and more effective method of getting your CBD or cannabis hit. You can refill the pen time and time again and with regular cleaning will last a long time. Why should you choose a dab pen over other types?
Why Choose a Dab Pen?
If you want to vape CBD and cannabis or one or the other the dab pen is a great place to start. If you want to vape dry herb this is not the type of pen you need. The wax concentrate can be bought from a licensed retailer and is simply to put into the cartridge. This is removed from the device to fill and is then screwed back in place. It is an altogether easier and cleaner routine to fill a dab cartridge as opposed to a dry herb example.
Now you have your wax concentrate in your pen you simply follow the instructions for operation. A tiny yet powerful battery powers a heating coil which heats the substance in the cartridge to the right temperature at which it is atomized. You now have a lovely vapor cloud of CBD or cannabis to inhale, and you will find it an enjoyable way of indulging. The battery on a dab pen can be recharged in a couple of hours by a USB connection. Let’s finish by looking at the legality of CBD.
Is CBD Legal?
There are many people who indulge in CBD for health reasons and while research is ongoing there are testimony from users that it helps with conditions that come with chronic pain. It can also help with poor sleep patterns, and there are signs that it can be beneficial in many areas of general health.
CBD products are legal in the USA as long as they meet the criteria mentioned in the opening paragraph. We recommend you talk to a reputable and established licenced retailer for the best quality dab pens and also top-quality wax concentrate.
