If you're interested in the world of CBD vaping you might have come across a device called CBD vape bar. This is a small, portable, one-time-use electronic device in a particular shape. It is prefilled with a measured dose of CBD-infused vape liquid. These disposable devices are popular for their ease of use, convenience and variety of flavours.
CBD vape bars have become increasingly popular as a new method for consuming CBD. Just like disposable vape pens (the only difference here is the shape) they offer a convenient and discreet way to enjoy the potential benefits of cannabidiol without the need for combustion or smoke. Unfortunately they are not the most eco-friendly due to the fact that they are getting thrown away once the e-liquid or battery is depleted. This is why Harmony is currently not offering fully disposable products.
CBD vape bars are disposable devices with a distinct shape
They are available in a variety of flavours and concentrations
They are convenient, but their single-use nature makes them less eco-friendly
What is a CBD Vape Bar?
A CBD vape bar is a small, bar-shaped vaping device. Compared to a disposable vape pen, it is shorter and wider. Some people prefer this form factor - while all other features and characteristics are essentially the same. These devices are designed to deliver a dose of CBD with each puff. An ideal option for those who are looking to buy a user-friendly and disposable (maintenance free) vaping solution.
The process of using a CBD vape bar is really quite simple: just inhale through the mouthpiece and enjoy the effects of CBD. Once the liquid is empty or the battery ran out the full device gets disposed off. This means a battery gets thrown in the trash every time - a reason why at Harmony we don't offer this type of device. Our user-friendly alternative is the Harmony FLOW that comes with a prefilled 500mg hemp extract cartridge and a rechargeable battery that you can use over and over again - thanks to the added USB charger.
CBD Disposable Vape Bar: Key Features
The most compelling advantage of using CBD disposable vape bars is their convenience. They come pre-charged and pre-filled with vape juice - so they don't require any charging or maintenance. It means you can simply start vaping right away.
Another significant aspect is their size - and with it their portability. They are very small, lightweight and easy to carry around just like pen-shaped disposables. This is making them an popular choice for those on-the-go or who don't want to invest in an elaborate vape setup. They are also available in a variety of CBD strengths and flavours.
However one thing to keep in mind is that disposable vape bars are intended for a single use. This means that once the vape juice or built-in battery is depleted you'll need to dispose of the bar safely and purchase a whole new one. This is not the most eco-friendly option and it will cost you more over the long turn than a refillable device or one with a rechargeable battery.
Types of CBD Vapes
You might have noticed that there is a variety of options to choose from when it comes to CBD vapes. There are disposables, vape pens and refillable vape kits - all catering to different preferences and budgets. Here's an overview of the most common types:
Disposable CBD Vapes
Disposable CBD vapes are a convenient and low-maintenance option for those new to CBD vaping. They come prefilled with CBD vape juice or CBD extract and are ready to use straight out of the box. Vape bars fall into this category.
Vape Pens and Kits
CBD vape pens and kits are a popular choice as they provide more options for individualization and better value for the long term. Vape pens come with tanks, cartridges or pods that can be either disposable or refillable. They are often available as vape kits with a pen-style or box mod device plus a tank or cartridge to hold the vape juice.
Refillable Vape Pens
Certainly the most cost-effective and eco-friendly option long term! These devices might require you to buy CBD vape juice separately - but they can be easily refilled and often come with adjustable temperature or wattage settings. This is giving you more control over the vapour production and overall experience.
CBD Oil, Vape Juice, and Edibles
In addition to vapes you'll find a wide selection of other CBD products available nowadays. This is including CBD oil, edibles and gummies as well as topicals like creams and gels. Each type of product comes with its own unique benefits. In addition to different types of products there are also different types of CBD extracts used to make them. "Full-spectrum CBD" contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds from the hemp plant (including traces of THC). "Broad-spectrum CBD" is the same but with the THC removed. Last but not least CBD isolates are the purest form of CBD and 99+% pure with no other cannabinoids.
Benefits of CBD Vaping
CBD vaping has become increasingly popular as more and more users talk about the wellness benefits they are using it for . Over the last few years more and more scientific research has been conducted, underlining CBDs potential to help you relax and reduce stress and anxiety  as well as helping with sleep . Prelimiary studies also suggest analgesic (pain relieving) properties  and many more.
Vaping CBD e-liquids allows for quicker absorption into the bloodstream compared to other methods of consumption. This means you should be able to feel the effects quicker  which also facilitates dosing.
Unlike traditional cigarettes CBD vapes contain no nicotine. This is allowing you to reduce dependency on nicotine while still enjoying many flavours and the habit of vaping itself. Unlike THC-containing cannabis products CBD e-liquids have no psychoactive effects - making them a perfect choice for vapers looking to maintain mental clarity. CBD has even been shown to act anti-psychotic  and it is being explored as a tool to combat substance addiction .
In summary: CBD vaping offers numerous potential benefits all while remaining free of psychotropic effects. Additionally - thanks to the diverse range of flavours available - you can enjoy a personalised and delightful vaping experience!
