The vaping industry is growing rapidly and has now produced many disposable vape pens. We cannot even count the number of flavours, types of pens, coil resistances, mouth piece sizes etc that have been designed.
We understand our primary readers and audience are those who consume CBD. We also understand that some of our readers and customers want to cut down on nicotine intake without increasing CBD consumption. So we went out on a hunt to find the best 0 nicotine disposable vape.
Our initial aim was to find the best vape with no nicotine in it. So our managing director and founding director went on an online research and hunt phase.
Considerations When Deciding on What to Test
There is no way our leadership at CBD Oil King could physically test every single vape out there that has no nicotine in it. So they decided to first select a handful that they as customers would want. But how would they choose?
They came up with 4 things to look at when deciding their initial list:
They both decided not to choose based on available flavours as there were far too many. So they decided not to let flavour be a consideration when choosing the initial list.
No Nicotine Vapes Chosen to Test
Without going into too much detail, the two founders combined list included the following vape pens:
Geek Bar 0 Nicotine - It looked very well made and seems to be popular.
HYLA Dopa - Because it has additional plant extracts.
Darwin CBD The Big One - The E liquid inside is similar to disposables without CBD. So they thought this pen should also be considered for testing.
Now there are loads of other disposables that were considered, such as the Aroma King Jewel, Insta Bar, Kingston, iBreathe Xero, Ultimate Bar to name a few. However, these did not make the test list.
It was difficult to test for the absolute best as it became clear that the disposables could be placed into its own category. Despite that they did decide on an overall winner, however they mentioned that it was important to tell our readers the best for each of the following:
Flavour - it's intensity
So our founders and the rest of the team here predict that the Darwin CBD The Big One will come out on top. This is probably because we are biased towards CBD but let's see the results shall we.
Results and Discussion
When our founders were forced to put the vapes in order i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd. They refused to complete the table and just told us to tell the readers the following as a summary and then broke down the discussion into categories:
Our founders agreed that HYLA Dopa should take the top spot. The primary reason is because it had the most true and intense flavour and the hardest yet tolerable throat hit. The HYLA Dopa Mango + Menthol flavour truly tasted like flavoursome Mangoes from South Asia with that Ice cool menthol hit. This could be because they actually use Mango and Mint extract in the E liquid, where as the others simply state natural or artificial flavourings. So for us this is the best nicotine free disposable vape.
Aroma King Dark Knight takes this one by a mile. Both founders agreed that the Dark Knight had the smoothest feel when vaping. It really helps that it has an adjustable air flow, where as none of the others have it. So this is the primary reason of its triumph over the others in terms of smoothness. Our founders did however point out that all vapes were very smooth and none failed this test.
Moreover Aroma King's 10000 puffs made it a very strong contender for best overall as well. Needless to say, if you are looking for a vape pen that lasts pretty much forever and is good, then we highly recommend the Aroma King Dark Knight. We can't recommend a particular flavour but just don't buy the Banana one. It tastes horrible.
HYLA Dopa takes this one. It had a very hard yet tolerable throat hit. This is certainly for those who absolutely need that hit. We are not quite sure what produced the hit more so than the others but we believe it may have something to do with the additional extracts i.e. Guarana & Mucuna-Prurien or the fact that they used Mint extract as an ingredient.
Darwin CBD The Big One is the recommended pen for those vapers who want CBD but want the usual vaping sensation from normal vapes. the Darwin does have less of a throat hit compared to the others so you can take longer draws. It also feels very close to sub ohm vaping, so feels good as well. At 2000mg of CBD and 3000 puffs, it is a pen that will last long and will also give you extended periods of benefits of CBD.
Our founders mentioned that you should know the HYLA Dopa and the Aroma King Dark Knight are rechargeable. They both have USB-C sockets so if you find that the battery dies, you can recharge it. This is not the case for the smaller Geek Bar and Elf Bar. They are designed to last 600 puffs or so so a one time single battery should work. However, in our experience as a retailer of disposable vape pens, this is not always the case. Far too often we have had customers contact us to let us know their vapes only lasted a few puffs or arrived dead. So it is important that customers choose disposables that do have charging ports even though they are disposables.
So if you are looking to wean off of nicotine then we recommend the HYLA Dopa vape pen. However, if you want something that is a little less exotic or if you are worried there is little info on the plant extracts in the HYLA pens then we recommend Aroma King Dark Knight 0mg. A well known brand amongst vapers. Finally if you do want a vape pen with CBD then we recommend trying out the Darwin CBD The Big One. It does come with 2000mg of CBD, so don't take too many puffs if you are just starting out with CBD.
