A refillable CBD vape pen is any type of vape pen that can be filled with CBD e-juice. It usually has a tank that attaches to a rechargeable stick battery. They provide a simple convenient pen-style form factor and are generally smaller and lighter than the average mod and tank combo. Some of them are suitable for direct lung vaping while others provide a tight mouth to lung draw.
Refillable pod vapes are another option in this category. Though they are designed for vaping nicotine, and not exactly pen-shaped, these mini vapes can be used to vape CBD as well since they are also discreet and easy to use.
Disposable CBD vape pens are vapes that contain a battery, atomizer and are pre-loaded with cannabidiol-containing e-juice. They generally resemble cigalikes, which are small cigarette-style vape pens. Disposables are designed to provide usually a few hundred puffs before they are depleted.
Disposable CBD vapes are another practical alternative to CBD cartridges and pods, since they don’t require the investment of purchasing a battery or compatible pod system. They are typically draw-activated, which means it only produces vapor while you are puffing and there are no buttons to figure out.
Refillable CBD vape pens require the purchase of a device, and obviously some CBD e-liquid to vape. However, they are generally more cost effective in the long run, after that first investment. Another downside to refillable CBD pens is that they’re less convenient, discreet, and require more knowledge to use them properly.
The advantage is that there are more options out there to achieve a custom vape using a refillable CBD vape pen. Most of them even have adjustable power and airflow options for fine tuning the experience, depending on whether you prefer a direct lung vape with bigger clouds or a tighter cigarette-style draw.
Direct lung sub ohm devices are ideal for lower CBD strengths since they deliver more vapor each puff. On the other hand, MTL is best suited for higher amounts of CBD, since it would take a lot more puffs to achieve the same desired effect if you were to use the same concentration of cannabidiol in both devices.

Disposable CBD vape pens are one of the most practical ways to start vaping cannabidiol, especially for your first time. They generally don’t offer as much variety in terms of flavor and CBD strengths but are relatively inexpensive and couldn’t be easier to use. Since they are pre-filled, disposable CBD pens don’t require you to purchase liquid or any additional items. Just vape it, then chuck it.
They generally aren’t as cost effective as refillable vape pens if you consider the amount of CBD they contain versus the price. They are also by and large limited to a cigarette style draw, a style of vaping also called mouth to lung. This style of delivery combined with the low output also means you may need to vape it often to achieve your desired dosage.
