CBD Pods: How to Use Them


If you are a fan of vaping, then there’s a good chance you’ve heard of CBD pods. CBD pods are made by a variety of manufacturers and are basically small cartridges that you insert into a flat device that looks very similar to a USB drive. The contents of the CBD pod do not contain any physical plant material, but rather a liquid substance infused with CBD, terpenes, and other substances found in the hemp plant and CBD oil.

They come in many flavors, and companies have gotten pretty crafty in coming up with flavors such as: Strawberry Gelato, Fruit Loop Milk, Watermelon, and Wildberry. They are designed for one-time use and are super easy and convenient to utilize. Some people prefer CBD pods over CBD vape pens, as the CBD pod device is super light and does not require you to mess with oils while refilling the compartment.

Although there are pros and cons to both vaping and CBD pods, it’s merely a personal preference as to which one is better in your eyes. In this article will be taking a look at CBD pods more in-depth and how to use them properly for the best effect.

What Are CBD Pods?

As briefly touched upon above, CBD pods are tiny cartridges that can be inserted into compatible devices. The company that started it all, Juul Labs, developed and released a device that can be charged easily into the USB slot of your computer and is light to touch. This device can also turn the liquid from the special cartridges into an aerosol vapor which can then be absorbed into the lungs and hence into the bloodstream. Although the official company that made this device is Juul, many other companies have started to make cartridges in different flavors and potencies that are designed to work with the Juul devices.

CBD pods are usually used once; you don’t have to mess with unloading and refilling a compartment with vape juice; you simply throw them away when you are done. On average, one CBD pod will give you about 200 puffs, so it’ll last you about the same amount of time as a pack of cigarettes.

Like vape juice, you can get so many different flavors and potencies, with many different substances within. As to whether you prefer smoking traditional joints, vaping your CBD, or using a vape pod, it all comes down to your personal preference on what is most easy and convenient for you. Many people love vape pods because they are super simple to use, convenient, and not as messy as vape juices. They are, on the other hand, a bit pricey if you will use your CBD pods a lot. Two CBD pods usually retail for around twenty bucks, so that is something to take into consideration as well.

How Do I Use a CBD Pod?

The first step to getting yourself set up for using CBD pods is to buy yourself a CBD pod compatible device. Juul Labs created the original Juul device, which is what many other companies have spin-offs of. After you buy your device and have stocked up on a few of your favorite flavor of CBD pods, make sure your device is charged and ready to go.

After its charged, you should take the CBD cartridge, liquid side down, and insert it into the device. Once it is powered on and heated, you can then inhale on the mouthpiece as you would any vape pen. And voila – it’s as simple as that.

After your vape cartridge is depleted, you just throw it away. A lot of people have gotten crafty, however, and started trying to refill the cartridges themselves to save on the number of pods they are purchasing. The plethora of videos available on the internet of people teaching other pod users how to replenish the cartridges is proof that people don’t like paying for them, but in this case, it would probably be better to just have a vape pen. If you’re going to be going through all the hassle of trying to open up a cartridge that isn’t meant to be opened, you might as well!

Overall, it’s pretty easy to use a CBD pod. The company Juul Labs has made it super convenient, which has contributed to its popularity as an e-liquid device.

Final Thoughts on CBD Pods

CBD pods have become quite trendy in recent times due to their convenience and simplicity of use. Instead of messing with refilling vape cartridges by hand, CBD pods allow the user to put a cartridge into a very lightweight and slim device and derive the same benefits without any of the hassles.

As more and more companies pick up on the popularity of CBD pods, the flavor selection is increasing as well, and many companies are offering very niche and unique flavors. Although it can be a bit expensive to use CBD pods as your prime source of CBD (reaching about $20 for 2 CBD pods), it can be worth it if convenience and simplicity of use are important to you and you are willing to pay the extra money. It is, ultimately, all up to the consumer and what he or she finds preferable.

But overall, CBD pods are super easy to use and can be inserted into any compatible device within seconds and vaped without any mess or hassle of oils. No plant materials are inside like a dry herb vape device, nor does combustion actually takes place – so it is a lot easier on the lungs than smoking a traditional joint to get your CBD. In addition, CBD pods used in the Juul device contain significantly fewer toxins than other methods of CBD consumption. Diacetyl is not frequently used in CBD pods for flavoring, so this is also another good thing.

We hope you enjoyed this breakdown on what CBD pods are and how to use them. Feel free to give them a try and see if they really hold up to the cult following that they have accrued over recent time!
