Why Vape CBD?
Vaping CBD can provide the same benefits as consuming CBD using the various other methods available today on the market. Vapes however, offer quick and convenient near immediate relief for many people suffering from a variety of ailments including; chronic pain, stress and anxiety, sleeplessness, inflammatory issues and more. more. You will learn throughout this article that vaping CBD is one of the most efficient ways to consume and benefit from the effects of this amazing cannabinoid. Aaron Cadena from CBDorigin said it best in his article titled “What is CBD bioavailability and Why Does it Matter?:
Bioavailability is the degree and rate at which a substance that is absorbed into the bloodstream.
By directly entering the lungs, the CBD can then quickly and directly enter the bloodstream, with decreased breakdown rates and higher bioavailability. With numerous medical studies reporting bioavailability rates between 34–46%, and some even reporting up to 56%, vaporizing CBD is by far one of the most effective methods to take CBD, and our recommended method. Read on to learn about the beginners guide to vaping CBD.
What is CBD Vaping?
So, what exactly is vaping CBD? Vaping is when you inhale vaporized liquid through an electronic device known as a vaporizer or vape/ vape pen. It works essentially by using a battery powered heating device to rapidly heat liquid creating vapour which is then inhaled into the lungs. From there, it quickly enters the bloodstream interacting with the bodies various cannabinoid receptors. What makes vaping unique is its bioavailability, CBD vape consumers often praise this method of consumption because of its almost “instant” effect. Contrast this with say, CBD gummies or edibles, which can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes to enter your bloodstream, and you can understand why CBD vapes are becoming increasingly popular, especially for consumers looking for rapid relief.
CBD Central put together an excellent diagram showing the main parts of a CBD vape pen, they include; the battery, heating element (atomizer), the mouthpiece and a chamber to contain the oil. Check out the diagram below:
With a variety of brands on the market, it is important to select the right CBD Vape product as you will learn, they are not all equal. For example, vaping CBD products that contain harmful substances like vitamin E acetate can be very dangerous. It is incredibly important to purchase CBD vape products from brands and manufactures that are trusted but more importantly tested; ask for lab reports and talk to the manufacturer or brand about the ingredients. For more on this, our friends at Leafly.ca put together “5 things you should know about vaping CBD”, and you will see there are plenty of safe options available on the market today. You will also learn that CBD Vapes can contain various types of CBD that include full spectrum, broad spectrum and CBD isolates. Also, CBD vape pens can come in both refillable and disposable options.

How long do CBD Vape Pens Last For?
Again, this will differ across brands, on average Vape pens lasts for an average of 150 draws so if there is 150mg of CBD it’s approximately 1mg of CBD per draw. It really comes down to usage and how frequently you are reaching for your CBD vape pen. As
mentioned above, whether or not the CBD vape pen is disposable or refillable can also impact the longevity of the product.
You’ve heard what we’ve had to say about CBD vape products now let’s catch up with one of Europe’s leading experts in the CBD vape industry; Hiatus.
Hiatus is on a mission to be the most trusted and respected vapes brands in the CBD ecosystem.
By delivering state-of-the-art vape devices with premium CBD and terpene formulations Hiatus aspires to offer you an escape from the daily grind, to create simplicity in everyday moments, to promote mindfulness, contentedness, security and community.
We caught up with George from Hiatus for an exclusive look and interview about what sets their CBD vape products apart, more information about the company, and CBD vape information in general, check it out below:
Hey George, thanks for taking the time to speak with us. Where did you come up with the Hiatus name?
We wanted something that represented the feeling of taking a moment for yourself. A break from the daily grind.
Can you tell us about your hardware?
The Hiatus hardware is made of premium (and safe) materials that are commonly found in cooking and medical devices. The body is made of borosilicate glass and medical-grade stainless steel that contains no heavy metals. Each draw is optimally heated to that just-right temperature range to maintain terpene integrity and the custom ceramic coil provides a clean flavour and no burnt aftertaste.
Can you tell us about your ingredients?
The bespoke formulations we’ve come up with are what really makes Hiatus stand out above other CBD vape devices on the market. Each Hiatus pen contains 150mg of pure CBD isolate combined with a mix of high-grade natural terpenes specifically chosen to match the need states that they represent.
Can you tell us about what makes each product different? Revive, Rest and Focus.
In short, the flavour and the terpenes. The “Revive” pen for example is Raspberry, Cucumber & Garden Mint flavour, which is like nothing else on the market. It really takes you to a rejuvenating place and we’ve combined that with Limonene, Caryophyllene and Linalool terpenes to enhance that feeling. The strong blackcurrant & blueberry flavour of the “Rest” pen combined with compatible terpenes evokes a state of relaxation. And the citrusy taste of the Pineapple & Orange “Focus” pen is distinctly unique, again combined with matching terpenes.
Those flavours sound great. What dosage do you recommend?
It really depends on user preference. We find that most of our customers soon get into a routine of using their pen throughout the day, as and when it’s needed. It acts as a great comforter to have at hand, enabling you to step away from what you’re doing and take a moment for yourself. On average the pen lasts for an average 150 draws so given there’s 150mg of CBD, it’s approx. 1mg of CBD per draw.
How does Hiatus compare to other brands on the market?
We’ve done extensive research into the other CBD vape pens on the UK market, and we’re confident that in Hiatus we have a product that really stands out from the crowd. It really comes down to the hardware and formulations. In terms of hardware, most other vape pen brands use a standard CCELL TH001 device (or similar) and simply wrap it with their branding, whereas the Hiatus device is custom made, feels great to hold and has a window to see the formulations, which is unique. In terms of the formulations, as we’ve discussed the terpene and flavour profiles have really been thought through to serve a purpose, which again makes us unique. And, of course, they taste absolutely fantastic!
Any comments on the CBD vaping industry, or consumer trends?
Vaping has taken a bit of a setback in recent times, but it remains the second largest consumption method of CBD. When it comes to bioavailability, vaping is right up there as the most efficient, and that will continue to attract people to the method. We also foresee lots of people that want to give up smoking turning to CBD vape products, they act as a great replacement for smoking cigarettes with the added benefit that CBD and terpenes deliver.
Thanks George! We appreciate you taking the time to describe your product and brand to us, we appreciate it and I am sure our readers will as well.
As you can see, a brand like Hiatus is putting the consumer first, from the best in class materials they source to the high-end feather hardware pen, they care about CBD and they care about providing an excellent consumer experience.
