Vapes Without Nicotine for Anxiety

Various studies estimate that around 30% of the population is suffering from anxiety at any given time, making it the most common psychological complaint by far. So, it should come as no surprise that millions of people are looking to vape without nicotine for relief from anxiety.

Below are our picks for vapes that might help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety. They're broken up into two main categories — non-nicotine vapes with CBD and non-nicotine vapes without CBD, which generally contain combinations of herbs and other natural ingredients known for their ability to induce a sense of calm.

Here are some of the best vapes to help alleviate anxiety symptoms.

TL/DR Summary of the Best Nicotine-free Vapes for Anxiety

Here are four of the best anti-anxiety vapes that don't contain any nicotine or CBD.

ARRØ: A great vape without nicotine for anxiety. This "flavored-air" nicotine-free vape can help occupy your mind and short-circuit negative self-talk.

HealthVape Chill: A leading non-nicotine vape with a liquid vitamin concentrate of chamomile, lavender, L-theanine, and passion flower extracts.

LUVV Air Zen: Similar to HealthVape's Chill. This vape contains chamomile, lavender, L-theanine, and passion flower extracts, but in different proportions/concentrations.

VitaBar Chill: The final vape with the now-familiar lavender and chamomile theme. It contains more inhales per vape than the HealthVape Chill or LUVV Air Zen.

Peace MONQ Diffuser: A unique aromatherapy device designed to be cycled through your mouth and nose rather than inhaled into your lungs.

Here are three CBD vapes formulated to help alleviate anxiety:

CBDfx: Leading CBD vape with 500 mg of broad spectrum CBD in 2 mL of vape juice.

Try the CBD: Features full-spectrum CBD derived from hemp grown in Colorado.

Avida CBD Vape Pens: These pens offer both broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD, letting you customize your CBD experience.

Non-Nicotine, Non-CBD Vapes for Anxiety

There are several reasons why you might not want to introduce CBD into your anti-anxiety regimen, including the fact that it may just not work for you. If that's the case, you're not out in the cold because dozens (if not hundreds) of devices produce an anti-anxiety, vitamin-infused vapor filled with essential oils that can help you relax.


ARRØ MAX device and boxes in Watermelon Aloe Grape flavor

Our ARRØ falls into the category of "flavored air" vapes. Think of devices like ARRØ as an anxiety puff bar, no nicotine included. These devices don't contain any ingredients beyond flavoring.

Instead, they help alleviate anxiety by satisfying your hand-to-mouth habit and giving your brain something else to focus on besides whatever the thoughts bring on the stress. This process can help "short circuit" the negative self-talk or other mental patterns that contribute to anxiety.

Available in two sizes — Regular and Max — you can choose from several popular flavors, including Hawaiian Ice, Watermelon Aloe Grape, Peach Berry, and others.

A regular size ARRØ device should be good for around 2,000 inhales, with the Max clocking in at around 5,000.

HealthVape Chill

HealthVape Chill in Lavender

Infused with chamomile and lavender, Chill from HealthVape is one of the leading nicotine- and CBD-free vapes. Many users report these devices provide calming effects that can help alleviate anxiety.

In addition to its two main ingredients, this vape is known for producing vitamin-infused vapor from a liquid concentrate containing well-known relaxants like L-theanine and passion flower extracts. As with every vape on this list (including other HealthVape products), there are no harmful ingredients like vitamin E acetate or diacetyl to worry about.

Each HealthVape Chill should deliver around 400-500 puffs per pen.

LUVV Air Zen

ZEN - Lavender Flavored Chamomile

Another anti-anxiety vape that draws on the calming properties of chamomile and lavender essential oils, LUVV Air's Zen is very similar to HealthVape's Chill, even down to its secondary ingredients of L-theanine and passion flower (though in slightly different concentrations).

The LUVV inhaler should deliver slightly more bang for your buck, with an estimated lifespan of 650-700 inhales per device, compared to HealthVape's 400-500.

VitaBar Chill

VitaBar Chill

In keeping with the lavender and chamomile theme, we have VitaBar's Chill, another vape focused on using the lavender, chamomile, L-theanine, and passion flower combination that should be familiar to you by now.

Chill has many great reviews and comes in at more inhales per device — 800 — than either HealthVape's Chill or the LUVV Air Zen, with many users praising its taste and ability to help "take the edge off."

Peace MONQ Diffuser

Peace MONQ Diffuser

MONQ diffusers are different from traditional vapes in that the vapor isn't intended to be something that you inhale into your lungs. Instead, the aroma is meant to be inhaled through your mouth and exhaled through your nose.

This approach, MONQ says, "directly activates a significant portion of the olfactory system and the brain," allowing the ingredients to do their thing.

MONQ has two main categories of diffusers — those that contain CBD and those that don't. The Peace diffuser we're covering here is CBD-free. Instead, it relies on frankincense, yellow mandarin essential oil, and rosemary as the main ingredients to promote a sense of calm (other ingredients include clary sage, eucalyptus, peppermint, and spearmint).

If you use a MONQ diffuser as the company recommends — which is for 2-3 puffs at a time, 2-3 times per day — the diffuser should last several months.

Non-Nicotine CBD Vapes for Anxiety

Why CBD for Anxiety?

According to several studies, Cannabidiol (CBD) shows lots of potential as a treatment for depression, insomnia, and, most notably for our purposes, anxiety.

As a result, companies have jumped on the chance to introduce CBD into their vapes and market them as antidotes to the stress that causes anxiety. We've collected a few with the best reputations below.

A note about CBD…

You'll generally find three kinds of CBD available in vapes, gummies, oils, or other products: Full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate.

In a nutshell, CBD isolate is the "purest" form of CBD. It contains no other cannabinoids or terpenes. Broad spectrum formulations contain other cannabinoids, which introduces what some users call an "entourage effect" — where the compounds complement each other to produce more profound effects.

Full spectrum is essentially broad spectrum plus some hemp-derived THC up to the legal limit.

If you're concerned about testing positive on a drug test or want to steer completely clear of THC for other reasons, it's a good idea to stick with CBD isolate.


CBDfx CBD Pen in Fresh Mint

CBDfx has been a respected player in the CBD space for years and has pioneered the introduction of CBD products, including CBD vapes, to the broader market.

The company's CBD vapes are available both with and without THC. We'll focus on the non-THC varieties here. Each disposable contains 500 mg of broad-spectrum CBD in 2 mL vape juice. Flavors include Blue Raspberry, Strawberry, Fresh Mint, Tropic Breeze and more.

CBDfx estimates that you should get around 800 inhales per vape pen.

Try the CBD — CBD Vape Pen

Try the CBD - CBD Vape pen - Indica Blend

Try the CBD offers a complete lineup of CBD products, including edibles, topicals, and, for the purposes of this article, CBD vape pens and CBD vape juice.

Each pen features a limited list of ingredients (which is a good thing!), including the main act — full-spectrum CBD derived from hemp grown in Colorado. Full-spectrum CBD has benefits that other variations don't have. Namely, it includes other cannabinoids besides CBD (CBG, CBN, and more), contributing to its effects.

Try the CBD. It offers several different formulations, but the two most geared toward stress relief and relaxation are Gorilla Glue #4 and Indica Blend. Each disposable pen contains a total of 300 mg of CBD.
