BAT launches first CBD vaping product

BAT has pilot-launched its first CBD vaping product, VUSE CBD Zone. This latest innovation will allow us, for the first time, to offer adult consumers a range of high-quality CBD vaping products from our trusted, global brand, VUSE.

This new range is available in three e-liquid flavours: mint, mango, and berry; and two strengths – 50mg and 100mg. It has been developed using the company’s global vaping expertise, world-class science, product stewardship, and robust supply chain sourcing.  

Initially available in Manchester, UK, it will offer adult smokers and vapers sensorial enjoyment, as VUSE CBD Zone caters to a variety of moods and moments in their busy lifestyles.

Fredrik Svensson, General Manager at BAT UK & Ireland, said: “At BAT, we are committed to building A Better Tomorrow. With the rollout of VUSE CBD Zone in Manchester, our unique multicategory portfolio now, for the first time, offers products that go beyond nicotine. As the UK market leader in vaping, we are proud to be launching our new high quality VUSE CBD Zone range, which has been developed using BAT’s unrivalled global vaping leadership.
