The disposable vape by Vapin Ape isn’t the first time the Grand Rapids cannabis brand is making a foray into the disposable vape market. They have wowed users for quite some time with several flagship vaporizers and THC vape pens.

The Animal Mints, for instance, is a sleek yet compact and lightweight disposable vape. It features the flagship full-spectrum cannabis oil from Vapin Ape with about 0.1% content of CBD and a potent 85% THC. The brand claims it offers a relaxing yet giggly and happy-feel effect from the cannabis with a serious entourage effect from predominant terpenes, most notably Myrcene, Terpinolene, and Limonene.

The Vape Ape disposable range sports more than a dozen strains in total. The lineup boasts a sweet apple flavor with undertones of menthol and a soothing taste of crisp mint at the center stage, and you should expect Animal Mints to come in all of these rich flavors.

Overview of the Vapin Ape Vape

Vapin Vape

The Vapin Ape Full Spectrum Disposable is a pre-filled, disposable vape pen manufactured by Vapin Ape. Each disposable vaporizer contains 1000mg of full-spectrum CBD oil extracted from cannabis sat plants.

When it comes to the cannabis strain, Animal Mints is a result of crossing Animal Cookies pollen with a Blue Power mother x GSC (formerly Girl Scout Cookies), carefully bred by the experts at Seed Junky Genetics in Southern California. This strain showcases the delightful flavors of mint and cookies, just like its renowned parent strains.

Full-spectrum CBD oil contains all the naturally occurring compounds in the hemp plant, including CBD, minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN, flavonoids, terpenes, and essential oils. Proponents of full spectrum CBD claim it provides enhanced benefits compared to CBD isolates due to the entourage effect of all the compounds working together.

This strain contains a rich blend of soothing terpenes such as Myrcene, Terpinolene, and Caryophyllene. These terpenes work together to produce a powerful and relaxing effect on both the body and mind, making them perfect for unwinding after a long day or for evening use. When exhaling, this strain has a delightful sweet and spicy aroma with a refreshing minty undertone.

How It Works

The Vapin Ape disposable contains a 280mAh lithium-ion battery connected to a 1.2ml CBD oil cartridge. To use it, simply inhale from the mouthpiece like a traditional vape or e-cigarette. An integrated heating coil vaporizes the CBD oil, producing thick clouds of vapor. The vapor is smooth and flavorful, carrying the natural flavors and aromas of the hemp plant into the user’s lungs and bloodstream.

Within minutes, the CBD is absorbed through the lungs and delivered systemically through the bloodstream. From there, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to provide potential benefits. Some users report feelings of relaxation, reduced anxiety, better sleep, and pain relief from the Vapin Ape vape. The effects vary between individuals based on factors like dosage, body chemistry, and reason for using CBD.

Design Features, Benefits, and More

Vapor Quality, Performance, and Efficiency

For a simple disposable vape, the Vapin Ape performs quite well. The vapor it produces is thick and flavorful, carrying the natural aromas of hemp. The vapor is also very smooth – I detected no irritating flavors or chemicals in the vapor.

The integrated heating coil vaporizes the CBD oil efficiently. A few good pulls are usually enough to feel the effects coming on. The 1.2ml cartridge provides around 200 puffs, which most users report is enough CBD for a day or two of use, depending on dosage needs. Clean burning and efficient vaporization are important for delivering CBD without wasting any through combustion.

Design and Build Quality

As a disposable device, the Vapin Ape doesn’t need to withstand heavy, long-term use like a rechargeable vape. However, the build quality still feels solid. The battery and cartridge connect securely with no looseness or leakage. After regular use over several days, mine still functioned perfectly with no signs of failure.

For the low price, users shouldn’t expect top-tier build materials. But the plastic and metal components feel durable enough for a single-user disposable lifespan. No parts felt flimsy or like they could break off during normal use. Overall, the Vapin Ape is a well-constructed simple device that should last through the full 1.2ml cartridge with average use.

Safety Features and Reliability

Safety is always important with vaping, especially for beginners. You can count on the Vapin Ape disposables for a raft of good-for-you safety features:

  • Short automatic shutoff helps prevent accidental firing in pockets or bags.
  • No button means less risk of accidental presses during transport.
  • Standard 510-thread connection works with any standard CBD cartridge for future use if the battery dies.
  • The battery has over-charge, over-current, and short-circuit protection.
  • Child-resistant packaging.

In testing, the Vapin Ape battery performed reliably through numerous charging cycles without any issues like shorting, explosions, or venting. The cartridge also stayed securely attached with no leaks. For a simple disposable device, it has good reliability and safety features.

Temperature Flexibility and Settings

Unlike some adjustable vapes, the Vapin Ape has no temperature control settings. The integrated heating coil vaporizes CBD oil at a single temperature. However, this fixed temperature seems well-suited for full-spectrum CBD oil.

In use, I detected no burning, chemical tastes, or other signs the oil was being overheated. The vapor was consistently smooth and flavorful. While adjustable temps allow fine-tuning vapor quality, the fixed temperature on the Vapin Ape performed very well right out of the box. No fiddling with settings is required, keeping the experience simple for beginners.

Battery Life

The Vapin Ape battery has a 280mAh capacity, which Vapin Ape rates for around 200 puffs of use. In my testing, this matched up well. With moderate use, taking 4-5 puffs per session a few times a day, the battery lasted around three days before it was drained. Heavier users may get 1-2 days, but light users could stretch it to 4-5 days.

Overall, the battery life is sufficient to use up the full 1.2ml cartridge before needing recharging or replacement. Carrying a second disposable as a backup is a good idea for extended trips away from charging. But for around-town daily use, one Vapin Ape provides enough battery to cover the cartridge lifespan reasonably.

Ease of Use

As a true disposable vape with no buttons or settings, the Vapin Ape is extremely easy to use. You simply inhale from the mouthpiece to activate the heating coil and draw vapor. It couldn’t be much simpler to operate.

Even complete vaping novices reported no issues understanding how to use it. And with no maintenance, filling, or cleaning required, it’s about as low-effort as vaping gets. The child-resistant packaging also makes it safe for storage and transport. For on-the-go CBD consumption, few devices are as simple and hassle-free as the Vapin Ape.

Portability and Discreet Vaping Experience

At only 5 inches long and about as thick as a marker, the Vapin Ape is highly portable. It easily fits in pockets, bags, or even your hand for on-the-go use. The matte black finish also makes it discreet to use in public without drawing attention.

Vapor production is not excessive so it can be used discreetly indoors without lingering clouds. And with no button clicks or lights, it’s quiet to operate. Overall, the small size and subtle vapor make the

Vapin Ape ideal for portable, discreet CBD consumption whenever and wherever you need it.
