Here on Vapegrl.com, I’ve discussed CBD a few times. Given the great degree of interconnectedness between the vaping and CBD industries – and the fact that, right now, the CBD industry is probably growing at a faster rate than the vaping industry – you can expect that trend to continue. Everyone is stocking CBD these days. I just bought some at my local Vitamin Shoppe – and nowhere is the intersection of CBD and vaping more evident than in the world of CBD vaping. If you’re a fan of CBD vaping, I’m about to explain why the Yocan UNI Pro might be the absolute best all-purpose CBD vaping device that money can buy. If you’re not on the CBD vaping bandwagon yet, though, I’ll begin by explaining why you should be.
What Is CBD Vaping?
CBD vaping – just like e-liquid vaping, the main topic of this website – is the act of heating a hemp extract until its active components turn into vapor and become airborne. Once those compounds are vaporized, you can inhale them and absorb the compounds through your lungs. Millions of people, like me, have taken up e-liquid vaping as a means of replacing cigarette smoking. When you vape a CBD e-liquid, CBD oil or CBD concentrate, though, you’re not inhaling nicotine. Rather, you’re inhaling cannabidiol, one of the active compounds in the industrial hemp plant.
Hemp is the name of a specific type of cannabis grown for industrial purposes. Unlike marijuana – the more famous form of cannabis – hemp is legal to grow everywhere in the United States and does not contain enough of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC to get you high. Listing all of the reasons why people use CBD is beyond the scope of this article, but some of the most common reasons include chronic pain, anxiety and sleep disorders.
Like the nicotine that you inhale when you smoke a cigarette or use a device for e-liquid vaping, inhaled CBD enters your bloodstream extremely quickly thanks to the vast network of blood vessels connecting your lungs to your circulatory system. In addition, research suggests that you’ll get more total CBD into your system if you inhale it rather than consuming it orally because inhaling a substance allows it to bypass the first-pass metabolism of the liver.
In short, then, the benefits of vaping CBD are as follows:
- You’ll get it into your body more quickly.
- Your body will use more of the CBD than it would if you consumed it orally.
Why Do I Need a Box Mod for CBD Vaping?
The world of CBD vaping is very similar to what the e-liquid vaping industry was like several years ago. There’s an enormous variety of different CBD vaping cartridges out there, but apart from the fact that virtually all of them use the common 510 connection, the specifications of the cartridges can vary greatly. You can use any CBD cartridge with just about any small vape pen, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have a good experience. If your vape pen delivers inadequate power, you won’t get a satisfying amount of vapor out of the cartridge. If your vape pen delivers too much power, you’ll experience harshness when you vape and may even end up burning your cartridge’s wick.
There’s also the fact that combining a vape pen with a non-matching cartridge can result in a vaping setup that’s flat-out unappealing to look at.
So, if you want to have a great CBD vaping experience, it definitely makes sense to buy a device that works with whatever cartridge you’d like to use and won’t become instantly obsolete when some company releases a completely new type of cartridge. A device that allows you to vary its operational wattage gives you a future-proof vaping experience because it works with everything. The Yocan UNI Pro has that feature, but so does virtually every other box mod on the market. So, what makes the UNI Pro so special? You’re about to find out.
What Makes the Yocan UNI Pro Unique?
As I mentioned above, one of the major problems with CBD vaping is that combining a vaping device with a non-matching cartridge often looks terrible. You end up with a tall, narrow cartridge sticking out of a bulky box mod, and it simply looks funny. It’s also not very pocket friendly.
The Yocan UNI Pro is unique because it physically adapts itself to accommodate virtually any CBD vaping cartridge that you’d like to use. Whether you prefer e-liquid cartridges, CBD oil cartridges or CBD concentrate cartridges, it’s no problem as long as your cartridge is no wider than 14 mm and has an atomizer coil resistance higher than 0.5 ohm. You can raise or lower the cartridge mounting platform so that, even if you’re using an unusually tall cartridge, only the tip of the mouthpiece will stick out from the top of the mod. Using a convenient dial on the side of the Yocan UNI Pro, you can even make the device’s top opening smaller until it fits snugly around the cartridge. You’ll have a perfect fit every time, and since most of the cartridge will be inside the device, you’ll also have a vaping setup that’s both powerful and extremely pocketable.
Are you worried that holding your cartridge inside the body of your vaping device will mean that you won’t notice when the cartridge is almost empty? One of the more brilliant features of the Yocan UNI Pro is that it has a cutout allowing you to view your cartridge while it’s inside the device. You’ll always know when you’re running low on CBD.
Special Feature for CBD Wax Atomizers
The Yocan UNI Pro has one last feature that you’ll find particularly special if you’re among the world’s growing legions of people who love vaping ultra-potent CBD concentrates. A CBD concentrate, as you may know, is a very waxy substance when it comes out of the dispenser. You need to warm the concentrate gently to liquify it. Your atomizer’s wick absorbs the liquid, and then you can vape it. The Yocan UNI Pro comes with an automatic preheating function that warms CBD concentrates for you. Just tap the fire button twice, and the device automatically warms your atomizer coil for 10 seconds. When the preheating cycle is complete, you’re ready to vape!
