Is It Legal to Vape CBD in Public?

At present, most studies have been regarding nicotine vaping, which is far more popular than CBD vaping. Moreover, nicotine vaping has been around for much longer than CBD vaping. Even then, studies suggest that vaping does not produce toxic smoke.

The UK government's document regarding the safety of vaping or the use of e-cigarettes in public spaces says that even nicotine vapes are 95% safer than tobacco smoke. It also tells policymakers that there is no evidence that passive inhalation of vape vapour causes any significant harm.[1]

Therefore, it is worth knowing that CBD vaping in public places is legal.[2]

Of course, there are some concerns regarding CBD pens. The activity has become very popular. There are many types of vapes, and not all are equally safe. That is why the UK government is now focusing on understanding these differences. In future, the UK government may ban certain kinds of vaping completely and also prohibit specific kinds of vaping in public.

However, the chances are slim that this would affect CBD vape laws. This is because, as a rule, CBD vapour contains vapour produced by heating sugar alcohols like vegetable glycerine and some flavours and only traces of CBD. It is therefore important to learn how to vape CBD properly

Those who passively inhale get very small amounts of what is released due to vaping. Studies show that even active vaping is safe and rarely causes severe side effects. Therefore, passive CBD vaping is not likely to cause any issues.

What Else to Know?

Though one can vape in public places legally, there are still a few things to know. Some places, like restaurants, may have specific policies at place, and one would need to follow those policies. Therefore, it may not be a good idea to vape in a smoke-free area of certain public places, restaurants, stations, and so on.

Additionally, one must understand that not everything in the world is regulated by laws. Many people do not like smoke, and thus, they may not like it if you vape. People may be especially sensitive if there are children around. Hence, one must follow specific rules when vaping. One has a responsibility towards the society.

Additionally, it is worth understanding that if you are travelling, learn about the local laws and norms in that place. Remember that vaping is illegal in many nations. In many countries, CBD vaping is strictly prohibited, and possession of CBD products is a crime.

Responsible Vaping Practices

Regardless of the legal status, practising responsible vaping is essential when using CBD vapes in public:

  • Choose High-Quality Products: Ensure you're using reputable, high-quality CBD vape products that are lab-tested and free from harmful additives or contaminants. This is good for your health and also for those passively exposed to vapours. Please do remeber that high quality CBD can affect workout performance
  • Be Informed: Stay informed about local and federal laws and regulations regarding CBD use in public. This knowledge will help you avoid legal issues. Firstly, the laws regarding CBD vaping in public spaces are constantly changing. Secondly, laws differ in different nations or countries.
  • Respect No-Smoking Areas: Always adhere to designated smoking and vaping areas. Avoid vaping in enclosed public spaces where it's prohibited.
  • Consider Others: Be considerate of those around you. Not everyone may appreciate or understand vaping, so try to minimize its impact on others.
  • Avoid Minors: Keep CBD vape products out of reach of minors. Laws often have stricter regulations when it comes to vaping in the presence of children.
  • Transportation: Be aware of the rules and guidelines for travelling with CBD and vaping equipment, especially when using public transportation or when you're at airports.


The legality of vaping CBD in public spaces is influenced by a complex interplay of local, state, and federal laws, as well as the nature of the place you're in. It's crucial to research and understand the specific regulations that apply to your location. Responsible vaping practices, consideration for others, and compliance with posted rules are essential to ensure that you can enjoy the potential benefits of CBD without encountering legal issues or inconveniencing those around you. Always stay informed and follow the law to make your CBD vaping experience safe and enjoyable.
