Most people I know are on a budget and so have to be mindful of what they spend each month (if you don’t – lucky you!). This means when shopping for non-essential items, we want to get the most bang for our buck! Vaping, whilst essential to many, fall into this category for me. I could live without it if I really had to, but honestly vaping CBD helps me so much with my anxiety and calming down after a long day that it is becoming more and more of a necessity and so something I need to make work within my outgoings.
There are many options for cheap vape pens in the UK which can be overwhelming, to say the least. It can be tempting to just go for the cheapest option, but I wanted to write this blog to say that going the cheapest often ends up being pricier. Trust me, I have made the mistake (several times over)!
My key takeaways from trying out the cheapest pens that came up from my Google search of the “best cheap pens in the UK”:
- Disposable vape pens are a subpar vaping experience – it is hard to draw from a disposable pen and even then not much vapor comes out. Vaping a disposable vape pen is not comparable to vaping with a more robust, high-quality device both taste and effect.
- Disposable vape pens are worse for the environment and will end up costing more than you think given you will have to replace the whole pen each time you finish it
- The level up from disposable vape pens, I call “somewhat disposable.” They are usually a vape pen battery which you screw on a compatible charger that tends to come with it, but that you can buy replacement cartridges for. You turn these on by drawing in or sometimes there is an on / off button
- Somewhat disposable pens have basic hardware and, whilst it will last a few more goes than a completely disposable vape pen, it is not usually long before the vape battery pen kicks in and you have to buy a replacement
- Cheaper models tend to be made from cheaper material, usually plastic – plastic cartridge, mouthpiece, battery encasing, etc. The more I vape, the more important it is to be vaping from higher quality materials for example glass cartridges that have ceramic coils. This not only makes for a better vaping experience but it is healthier too. I don’t love the idea of vaping plastic as I fear unnecessary toxins might sneak in when heating plastic at such a high temperature. Bolder cannabis and extracts are best for the vape pens
I then came across the Paso vape pen – in my mind the best of the cheap vape pens for sale in the UK. Here’s why:
- Affordable: whilst it is not the lowest end of the price scale, it is extremely reasonable at £19.95. Moreover, over time this will end up being even cheaper if you think about all the replacements you will have had to go through with the cheaper models (replacing your vape pen each time you are done!)
- High-quality hardware: the Paso folks have not skimped on quality even at this price point. Their vape pen has variable voltage and pre-heat functionality so you can pick the best vape setting for you
- Versatile: The Paso vape pen works for CBD e liquids and CBD vape oils. What is often called a “cannabis vape pen,” in the UK, means a vape pen that is able to heat up thicker oils or extracts. This requires a more powerful device than for CBD e liquids, but with their variable voltage, you can flick between a lower and higher heat depending on the vape liquid! Again, an added cost saver of not needing two devices to vape each type of CBD vape liquid
- Amazing design: the vape pen is silver plated and looks a lot more high-end than the price suggests. It is thin and lightweight so very easy to carry about with you in a pocket
