ANAHEIM, SEPT. 27, 2018 — Dr. Delights won the award for “Best CBD Vape Cartridge” on Saturday at CBD Expo West 2018, California’s first conference dedicated exclusively to products and services in the CBD (cannabidiol) industry.

The company’s winning entry was the Relieve CBD vape pen, which is meant to help ease inflammation. This pre-charged pen delivers 100 doses of organically-sourced cannabidiol in a blend of other organic plant extracts.

Interviewed by Cannabis Channel TV at the Expo, brand co-founder and product developer Rose Burnett explained that each Dr. Delights product contains an “outcome-specific” blend of cannabinoids and terpenes. Some products, like those in the Relieve collection, are enhanced with non-cannabis essential oils such as peppermint that not only add flavor, but may also support the desired wellness outcomes.

  3. Intensity/Feel
  4. Aroma
  5. Smoothness of Draw
  6. Taste

The Fast-Growing CBD Community

The US consumer market for CBD is booming. As a non-psychoactive “cousin” of THC, cannabidiol is popular for helping to ease anxiety and inflammation, and supporting other mental/physical benefits, without the risk of distorted perception or other common THC side effects. Says Burnett, “CBD also seems to counteract the psychoactivity of THC, so we have pens that combine the two compounds for different wellness outcomes.”

CBD Expo West featured nearly 100 exhibitors with booths focused on CBD tinctures, treats and other cannabidiol products for people and pets. The event was organized by staff of the magazine CBD Health & Wellness, and it was hosted at the Marriott Anaheim.
