Introducing the first cannabis electronic cigarette

18 December 2014

kanavape Do you enjoy the drugs, but trying to quit smoking? Well, rejoice stoners, for the first 'e-joint' is now available to buy in the UK.

The first cannabis electronic cigarette came out in June, but it was only available abroad.

KanaVape, a device similar to electronic cigarettes but with cannabinoids, will be purchasable online from the UK from next Thursday.

The product uses hemp with 5 per cent cannabidiol, meaning that it apparently gives users the same effect  – especially the relaxed feeling – as cannabis but without the psychotic side-effects.

The e-joint will mean users can inhale cannabis vapour without the usual smell of smoke.

However the makers of Britain’s first e-joint – Antonin Cohen and Sebastien Beguerie – claim their product is entirely legal as it contains no THC – the chemical in marijuana.

As if to make it sound a bit wholesome, the hemp used in the e-joint is grown in France, Czech Republic and Spain without the use of synthetic pesticides and chemicals.

They said, in unison apparently: "We made KanaVape to give millions of people a legal and tasteful way of using cannabinoids. We craft our production with love, care and scientific research. KanaVape is good for our customers and good for the planet."

Drug charities aren't that impressed by the idea, shading it off as something of a lousy gimmick, but accept that it will be legal due to the THC issue.

That's literally someone's idea of a very merry Christmas. Not here though. Bitterwallet's body is a temple.

    I confess to being fairly ignorant in the ways of the bud so I have to ask: is this stuff going to get you high or not?

    Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main ingredients in the marijuana plant. Both CBD and THC belong to a unique class of compounds known as cannabinoids. THC is probably best known for being the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. CBD, however, is non-psychoactive. In other words, CBD can’t get you high.
