Basic Introduction To Vaping
How do vape mods work?
Vape mods make up most of the devices on the vaping market today. Replacing old-fashioned e-cigarettes, vape mods offer increased customisation, stronger power, and an extended battery life, leading to a significantly better vaping experience. Many vape mods also have advanced features like variable voltage and temperature control. Vape mods typically include a tank or atomizer, coils, a battery, and an outer container to hold all of the components.
What types of vape mods do you stock?
There are many types of vape mods, spanning different shapes and sizes and catering to the whole range of skill levels. On the simpler end, you have vape pens and tube mods. These are affordable and reliable, although they don’t produce that much vapour. Higher up the scale are box mods. Larger and more advanced, these offer customisable settings. Hobbyists and experienced vapers like mechanical mods, which require advanced knowledge because of their DIY setup. Pod mods are a more recent invention, consisting of an ultra-portable setup with replaceable or refillable pods.
Which mods are most suited for sub-ohm vaping?
For sub-ohm vaping, you’d need a mod with a low coil resistance of 1 ohm or less. It should also be able to produce a lot of power, so make sure your mod can handle 40 watts or higher. Box mods are the most common type of mod used for sub-ohm vaping. These are powerful enough to generate massive clouds, and you can easily tweak the voltage and wattage to give you an intense, satisfying vape. For those who want to push their vaping to the extremes, mechanical mods are another option, but you’d have to be very careful with safety handling.
Which mods are the most beginner-friendly?
Pod mods are a great choice for beginners. These have a small, minimalist design, so you can easily figure out how to use them. Some are even breath-activated! They’re fairly cheap, making them ideal for first-timers, and former or current smokers can transition smoothly to vaping because pod mods can provide stronger nicotine hits. You can also check out vape pens, although they’re usually disposable and result in a lower-quality vape. If you’re willing to spend more, there are box mods too that cater to beginners.
Which mods allow for greater customisation?
To fine-tune your vape, box mods are your go-to. These usually have a screen that lets you see and adjust your settings, including voltage, wattage, and even temperature. The more advanced ones have impressive features like preheat curves and a joystick controller. On the other hand, mechanical mods give you a bare-bones setup that you can tinker with directly. These are often used with rebuildable dripping atomizers (RDAs), where you have to build your own coils.
How should I store my vape mod?
Proper storage of your vape mod will help keep it clean and safe to use, even prolonging its life. When you’re not using your mod, make sure that there’s no chance of it firing accidentally by disconnecting the tank and the battery. It’s also best to store your mod inside a case or at least a small plastic bag. Finally, clean it regularly so gunk doesn’t build up and it stays in good condition.
Basic Introduction To CBD
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical compound that’s found in the cannabis plant. Typically extracted from hemp, it’s gaining popularity in the UK and other parts of the world because of its therapeutic effects, which range from increasing one’s sense of calm to relieving symptoms of certain medical conditions. CBD can be bought as an isolate or as CBD oil. It can also be infused in a wide variety of products such as vape e-liquid, food like lollipops and gum, and drinks.
What are the benefits of CBD?
Cannabis has been consistently used for wellness throughout human history, and there are already plenty of studies pointing to the mind-body benefits of CBD specifically. These can include relieving chronic pain and insomnia, easing anxiety and depression, helping with epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. CBD can also be used to promote relaxation and healthy sleep. CBD also has antioxidant properties, and it can potentially make addiction recovery easier because it curbs withdrawal symptoms.
Does CBD get people high?
No, CBD won’t make you high. To understand why it’s worth noting that there are two types of cannabis plants: hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but one major difference is that marijuana has a high percentage of a compound called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main cause of its psychoactive effects. As a result, you’ll get high on marijuana—but not on hemp. CBD in the UK is extracted from hemp with barely any THC, so at most, CBD will relax you, but you won’t get high.
What is the legal status of CBD in the UK?
CBD is legal in the UK as long as it comes from industrial-grade hemp that’s approved by the EU, with less than 0.2% THC content. As examined in official labs, the CBD itself must not have detectable THC, which has psychoactive effects. In special cases, some doctors in the UK can already prescribe CBD-based drugs to patients.
What’s the best way to store CBD?
The CBD extraction itself can last up to two years, but the expiration date of a specific CBD product depends on its ingredients as a whole. To prolong your product’s shelf life, it has to be kept away from heat, light, and air. For this reason, most CBD products have dark packaging, such as tinted bottles for oils, and they should be placed in cool, dark environments like closets or drawers.
