Are These CBD E-Liquids Harmonious to Vape?
The blossoming vaping industry has also seen a growth in the use of CBD e-liquids.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol and whilst it indeed comes from the hemp plant the psychoactive compound is removed meaning you get the ‘benefits’ of cannabis – without the high.
Whilst scientists and health professionals are loathe to acknowledge any medical benefits from taking CBD in any form – there’s a growing amount of anecdotal evidence suggesting further research is needed.
Harmony is based in Barcelona, Prague and London and CEO Antonin Cohen certainly comes across as passionate about the properties of CBD.
He founded the company in 2008 and continues to work alongside doctors, scientists and activists to bring quality control to CBD products.
I sampled all three Harmony CBD 10ml e-liquids and each had 3mg Nicotine 100mg per ml of CBD with an 80/20 PG VG mix – other sizes and strengths are available.
This product was received free of charge for the purposes of this review. As always, our views are our own.
Harmony OG Kush
The famous strain of O.G. Kush has always been a mystery as its complete origin and genetics are unknown. Some theories state that the word “Kush” refers to strains grown in the beautiful Hindu Kush, Hindū Kūh (ھندوکوه) mountains in India where the word Kūh means mountain.
This strain has a high concentration of the terpene linalool, the same as in Lavender.
The smell from this is strong – pleasantly strong and reminded me of a kind of medicinal clove.
Vaping the Harmony OG Kush is a dream. Anyone who has enjoyed a really good ‘herbal cigarette’ will know exactly what I mean – this is both sweet and potent but with a real freshness to it.
Given man flu coupled with chronic back pain after– hanging curtain poles and curtains – I found myself vaping on this for a full day.
The relief was tangible to say the least and my normal anxious mood was pleasantly dulled.
I’m no doctor and Harmony are at pains to stress this is not medicinal – but I found this the best CBD vape liquid I’ve tried for both taste – vape experience and other benefits I’m not allowed to go into.
All I can say is I tried this and whilst it might be a so called placebo effect – it worked for me.
Mango Kush is a strain with a tropical fruit smell such as sweet mango and pineapple with a hint of banana.
It contains a high concentration of the terpene myrcene, also found in mango that gives it a sweet and musky aroma. This very cute strain is covered with orange coloured pistils.
Wow now this is a fruity vapers delight – it’s delicious.
The smell from the bottle was a little misleading to say the least smelling as it did with what I assume is the smell of those organic Terpenes – the compounds that give plants colour scent and flavour.
Organic is the word because the smell is a little like a herb garden – hard to put your finger on just what it smells like – but nonetheless extremely familiar and pleasant.
Vaping the Mango Kush reminds me of Lilt – that tropical crush you can get in cans – it’s mouth-wateringly good.
The vapor was so so – but then anyone vaping CBD oil is not looking to impress with cloud production.
Super Lemon Haze
This award winning cannabis strain has the most complete aromatic lemony profile.
It smells like fresh lemon and has a very fruity aroma due to the high concentration of limonene, the same terpene found in lemon and other citrus fruits.
Again the smell from the bottle wasn’t that impressive to be honest however once inside my vape pen and I took my first vape the smell was incredible.
As to the taste think fresh lemons bursting on your tongue but again with that hint of sweetness.
I can’t comment on the ‘effect’ the CBD content this flavour had on me as I only had one 2.5ml tank and think I still had plenty of the OG Kush in my bloodstream.
What I can say is they are the exact same mix so it’s down to personal taste which one you like.
If you like lemon – then this is not at all tart or at all bitter.
There’s plenty of CBD in the 10ml bottles I’ve sampled and taste wise they are extremely good.
Vapor production doesn’t really come into CBD e-liquids but there’s the same amount as you’d get from a normal cigarette and a good throat hit too.
I can only say that using the OG Kush for a weekend certainly had the effect I was looking for.
I’ve been fortunate to sample a variety of CBD e-liquids and pens and overall I’m extremely impressed with the benefits I personally have felt from using them.
It’s important to remember no-one anywhere particularly Harmony claim CBD has a medicinal effect.
However your own research will show very many [ok loads lol] of anecdotal evidence suggesting it does ‘help’ with pain and anxiety – without that ‘high’ cannabis users experience.
