According to The National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety affects nearly 18.1 percent of adults — approximately 40 million adults — throughout the United States.
Everyone handles anxiety differently. Some people prefer an alternative approach and have turned toward cannabis for help. There are now a growing number of products on the market that use key ingredients to facilitate and promote wellbeing in consumers, aiming to help alleviate the symptoms associated with anxiety.

An Alternative Approach
One approach that many consumers have taken to combat anxiety symptoms now that cannabis is legal is using a disposable vape pen. Vaporizers are popular tools throughout the tobacco, cannabis, and hemp industries, and have been designed to help customers find a targeted method for their individual needs.
The Anxiety Pen from Vapor Slide, for example, isn't just some run-of-the-mill pen slapped with a CBD label and marketed one-size-fits-all. It has specific cannabinoids — the active chemical compounds found within the cannabis plant — that carry out specific functions. In the Anxiety Pen's formula includes CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN, as well as delicious and fragrant terpenes.
Vapor Slide has another similar option — the Day and Night Pack — where the experience is even further customizable. The Night Pen portion includes CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN as its star players. Consumers love this pen for its soothing experience, packed with all the terpenes that help with relaxation.
The Day Pen, on the other hand, is created with CBD and CBG, aimed to stimulate the mind and body. Consumers have reported feelings of calming energy, ideal for someone who wants an extra boost.
More on the Ingredients
Each of the Vapor Slide Disposable Vape Pens has a different mix of ingredients, featuring specific cannabinoids and terpenes. They are lab tested, THC-free, and work best together in formulated amounts.
Unless you've been living under a rock (in which case, welcome back), there's a pretty high chance that you've heard of CBD.
Here's a quick refresher: short for cannabidiol, CBD is a cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant. It can be extracted and then used as an ingredient in wellness products, where people report it has relaxing properties. It is non-psychoactive.
CBG, or cannabigerol, is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. While still fairly new in the industry, research has suggested that CBG is a "stem cell" of CBD and THC. It's basically the parent cell; both CBD and THC start out as CBG before evolving into their final forms.
Another cannabinoid, CBN stands for cannabinol. Though research on CBN is limited, but here's what we do know, oversimplified: when cannabis ages, the THC gradually breaks down. Over time, combined with heat or oxygen, CBN is born.
With the same origins as CBD and THC, CBC is a lesser known cannabinoid known as cannabichromene. It's one of the "big six" cannabinoids that show up within the realm of medical research, thanks to its promising benefits.
CBC is thought to work best with other cannabinoids, via the entourage effect, but also works well alone. Research suggests that this cannabinoid may be tied to benefits such as fighting pain and inflammation, while also being non-psychoactive.
Terpenes are another ingredient found in these CBC, CBG, CBN, and CBD disposable vape pens. In short, terpenes are chemical compounds found within plants that are responsible for the smells and flavors associated with the herb.
They are found within the essential oils that are made naturally by the plant's flower. These same glands that produce terpenes are also the ones producing cannabinoids (like the large assortment of three-letter acronyms previously discussed). The oils are able to be extracted through a process of vaporization, and the terpenes can then be used.
Similar to cannabinoids, each type of terpene has specific, unique traits and purposes. Sometimes they are specific to aroma, other times to taste, and sometimes consumers report different medical benefits. There are over 200 terpenes found in cannabis and hemp, each bringing something different to the table.
Mix and Match
By combining all of these ingredients, the end result is a mixture of these powerful cannabinoids and terpenes working together, each serving as an equally important piece of the puzzle. With precise dosing and specific amounts, these ingredients are able to expand the possibilities of cannabis-sourced products.
CBD-disposable vape pens should be suited to fit individual needs. With the all of the ingredients that are now available beyond CBD and THC, such as terpenes, we are able to customize the vape pen experience more than ever before, and that's exactly what Vapor Slide aims to do.
