If you’ve picked up a Koi Stik by Boulder or similar CBD vape pen at your local retailer and are looking for guidance on what to do next, we’re here to help you get started. You’ll learn how to use a CBD vape pen like the Koi Stik or similar and how to vape CBD properly.
What is the Koi Stik?
The Koi Stik is a portable vaping device for delivering CBD vape juice. It offers beginners an easy choice for experiencing the benefits of CBD vape juice without having to swallow CBD oils.
The Koi Stik by Boulder is simple, quick and easy to use. It’s also discreet enough to slip into your purse or pocket and won’t produce large clouds of vapor like regular e-cigarettes. This Koi vape pen offers convenient one-button operation for quick draws. A built in USB charger on the vape pen makes fueling up its long-lasting battery easy.
For non-smokers, the Koi Stik is a great way to sample and use CBD vape juices like those from Koi. CBD vape juice also allows you to try a variety of different flavors. We currently have six CBD e-liquids available that you can find at thousands of Koi retailers
across the United States.
How Does CBD and Vaping CBD Work?
A growing understanding of the benefits of CBD have led to many people choosing to add the cannabinoid to their everyday wellness program. Cannabidiol (CBD), like the well-known delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is one of more than 100 cannabinoids naturally found in cannabis plants, including hemp.
Cannabinoids like CBD interact with the endocannabinoid system (ES) inside our bodies. The ES is made up of a series of receptors spread throughout the body, mostly in the brain, immune system, and central nervous system.
The ES is responsible for maintaining balance and harmony in our bodies. When cannabinoids bind to receptors in the ES, there is a chemical reaction that promotes better balance and overall functioning. In short, a well-operating ES means you feel better during the day and sleep better at night.
Vaping CBD delivers the beneficial compound quickly to your body’s ES through the lungs. After you inhale the CBD-filled vapor, the cannabinoid is absorbed through your lung’s alveoli, reaching your bloodstream where it can start interacting with ES receptors in seconds to minutes.
How to Use the Koi Stik: A Step-by-Step Guide
Step #1: Charge your CBD vape pen
When you first purchase the Koi Stik by Boulder, it’s a good idea to charge it before first use. To charge the Koi Stick, simply pull the battery part away from the main body of the Koi Stik and plug it into any USB port.
A white indicate light on the CBD vape pen will come on while charging. Once the device is fully charged, the indicator light will turn off.
Step #2: How to refill CBD vape pen cartridges
Your Koi Stik will come with an empty CBD pod and a filler bottle for filling the cartridge. Place your CBD vape juice into the refill bottle. Next, take the plastic lid off your Koi Stik cartridge and fill the small reservoirs with your CBD vape juice. Make sure that both sides are full and then replace the cap. Now place the cartridge back into the Koi Stik.
Step #3: How to properly prepare your CBD vape pen
You need to allow at least 5-10 minutes for the CBD e-liquid to soak into the cotton wicking inside the cartridge before attempting to vape it.
Step #4: How to turn on the CBD vape pen
Once you have allowed the wicking time to soak, it’s time to turn on the Koi Stik. You simply press the on/off button rapidly three times to turn on the Koi Stik. This is a safety feature to prevent it accidentally firing while it’s in your pocket or bag.
Step #5: How to use proper vaping technique
Now it’s a simple matter of pressing the firing button while inhaling on the Koi Stik. You’ll need to hold this button down as you inhale and then let it go when you’re ready to exhale and in between draws. This is different from many disposable CBD vape pens, which have autodraw capability.
Start off slowly, with small inhales. Once you get comfortable, you can take longer inhales.
Step #6: Monitoring CBD vape juice levels
There is a small viewing window which will show you how much CBD vape juice you have left. It’s important to ensure that you don’t run the Koi Stik cartridge down too low as the coil and cotton will burn. Easy to fill CBD pods for the Koi Stik hold 1.5mL of Koi CBD Vape Liquid.
You should get multiple uses out of a single cartridge, but mixing flavors will change the taste of the CBD e-liquid. If your coil tastes burnt, then it may be time to replace it with a fresh cartridge.
