E-Liquid Vape Pens
Vape Pens for E-Liquid

E-Liquid vape pens are by far the most popular type and the type most people refer too when they talk about vape pens. With the starter kits, you get everything you need to start vaping except the actual e-liquid as the flavors and strengths are so vast it would be counterproductive for the manufacturers to include it.

A typical kit comprises of a base unit which often houses the battery, on the shaft you have the power and fire buttons. You also get a tank with a pre-installed coil and a USB charging cable.

The kits vary from brand to brand but the majority also give spare atomizer coils, glass housing and a selection of replacement o-rings.

The best vape pen to vape e-liquid has to go to SMOK. This vape pen is specifically designed for direct lung inhales and comes with the popular 5ml TFV8 Big Baby tank which produces some of the best tastes and clouds. The V8 kit boasts a huge 3000mAh internal battery with USB charger and spare coils. The starter kit comes with everything you need except e-liquid.

EVOD Vape Pens
EVOD style Vape Pens

EVOD style vape pens are another popular type of vape pen, used to vape e-liquid and often referred to as EGO E-Cigs.

They are basic vape pens and ideal for the new vaper or those who are trying to quit smoking with e-cigs. They are all available in starter kit form and the only thing you have to buy in addition is the e-liquid, as with all vape pens and e-cigs.

EVOD generally have an atomizer which has a resistance greater than 1-ohm, and therefore require less power and also ideal for mouth to lung inhales as the draw is slightly more resistant and requires a harder pull, similar to regular cigarettes.

1st Place -VaporFi VAIO GO

Designed specifically for the new vaper it is very easy to use. The coils can be replaced and come in different resistances so the user can find their perfect match. Although the vape cloud isn’t as big as the best e-liquid vape pens, you still get a nice tasting vape, smooth and satisfying, especially for the mouth to lung vapers.

CBD Vape Pens
Vape Pens for CBD

CBD Vape pens are no different than regular vape pens, they can be used for both e-liquid and CBD liquids.

There are companies that specialize in just CBD Vape Pens, but in our opinion, they are not as good as the mainstream brands.

Don't be fooled into buying a separate pen for CBD. Just change the coil as you would when changing e-liquid and try it out. Or buy one of the best vape pens that can be used for both e-liquid and CBD as listed here.

The Best CBD Vape Pen

1st Place – SMOK Stick V8

The best vape pen for CBD is also the best e-liquid vape pen. If you already have a vape pen, don’t rush out and buy one just for CBD. Just change the coil and try it out. CBD comes in e-liquid form for all types of vape pens. However the SMOK Stick V8 is the best vape pen on the market and has been around for over a year now, that’s how good it is!
