Ways To Consume Cannabidiol (CBD)

How CBD Vape Pens Work And Their Components

Vaping is a relatively new phenomenon that has come into mainstream culture within the past decade. Among cannabis and CBD consumers, the use of vapes and vape pens have become a staple.

Since vaping has become such a large part of popular culture, the Oxford Dictionary selected vaping as their “Word of the Year” in 2014. Vaporizing releases the beneficial ingredients of the plant into your lungs without burning. This method ensures you are not inhaling tars or other harmful carcinogens as you would if you were smoking. Vaping does not involve combustion, nor does it produce smoke.

One of the concerns you hear among vaping is known as “popcorn lung effect.” Diacetyl is what causes this effect, which can lead to lung disease. Diacetyl is found in cigarettes, electronic cigarettes and other unnaturally flavored vaping products when added to the latter’s e-juice. Canna Hemp’s vape pens do not contain diacetyl or any other unnatural flavorings. You can inhale worry free!

Despite vapes being a highly popular choice for cannabis and CBD consumption, many still do not know what vapes and vape pens are, what they’re used for and the differences between the many models available. Below we will discuss the components of our disposable vape pens with a brief overview of how they work.

Canna Hemp Disposable Vape Pen Components


The tank, or chamber depending on your personal preference, is what holds the CBD or cannabis oil. If the carriage is disposable (meaning single-use), it’s called a cartridge, like our Canna Hemp disposable vape pens. Almost all tanks are made of glass, but others are made with stainless steel or polycarbonate plastic. While some tanks and cartridges are refillable, Canna Hemp vape pens are not. The purpose of our CBD Vape Pens is convenience, that way you don’t have to worry about refilling the pen tank.


Simply put, the atomizer is the little heater inside your vape pen. If you’ve got a really fancy vape pen, they may call it a “clearomizer,” or “cartomizer.” The heating component inside Canna Hemp’s disposable vape pens is a heat coil. When you inhale through the mouthpiece, there’s a sort of alert that lets the coil know it needs to heat up to make the vapors. There’s also an automatic switch off factor to help prevent any overheating. The pen will not let you draw for more than six seconds. After that, there’s an automatic switch that turns the heat off.

Air Intake Chamber

The tiny hole underneath the tank is the air intake chamber. When you breathe in through the mouthpiece, it helps to create the vapors you’ll inhale. Be careful to not cover the intake chamber! If you do, this will cause the heat coil in the pen to cook the oil. It will also blow out the coil and cause the pen to stop working.

Power Source

While most vape pens have a rechargeable battery, but the power source inside Canna Hemp’s vape pens are not. They were designed to be disposable and convenient, so you wouldn’t have to worry about recharging any battery. Canna Hemp’s vape pens last around for 90 draws and the power source will often last just as long, but keep in mind to not hit the pen too hard, too fast. The heat inside the pen will strain the power source and cause it to perform poorly. Be sure to spread out the times between hits.

LED Indicator 

At the bottom of each disposable vape pen is a small LED light that lets you know that the pen is working. When you inhale through the mouthpiece, the LED light will turn on. A good way to make sure the light is turning on is to check in a mirror, or hold your hand our towards the bottom of the pen to see if light shines on your hand. The light will blink twice after you’ve inhaled for more than 5 seconds to let you know the pen will be turning off.

What this all means

Vape pens are not the only method to consume cannabis or CBD oil. Other types of vaporizers, such as table-top versions and hand-held vaporizers (the ones that look like walkie-talkies), are also popular methods when it comes to using cannabis or CBD.
