If you're looking for a healthy vape to take the place of smoking cigarettes, or to take the place of vapes containing nicotine, this article is for you. We did the research to come up with the top healthy vape brands on the market today. So without further ado, here are our picks.
At a glance:
MELO & HELO
MELO and HELO are two zero nicotine vapes, produced by the same company, that share a similar goal — to give people an alternative to smoking cigarettes and to unhealthy vapes that are packed with nicotine.
Neither MELO or HELO vape pens contain any of the chemicals known to cause serious harm — like Diacetyl and vitamin E Acetate. What each disposable vape does contain is either caffeine (in the case of HELO) or melatonin (with MELO), to deliver either a natural boost of energy, or a relaxing chill. HELO makes our list of best caffeine vapes, while both MELO and HELO make our list of top healthy vape alternatives, safest vapes, best vapes to quit smoking and best oral fixation alternatives.
Both are available in two sizes — Air and Plus. The Air variety should deliver around 400 inhales, with the Plus doubling that to 800 inhales.
You can take your pick among more than a dozen standout flavors for each, including Cotton Candy, Orange Dreamsicle, Cosmic Berry, Gummy Bear and more for MELO. HELO offers Banana Ice, Caramel Coffee, Aloe Grape, Pink Lemonade and others. Both MELO and HELO are available from the manufacturer’s website (see below), or you can check out our article on where to buy caffeine vapes to find additional options for buying HELO.
HealthVape can be a great brand to try out because, with one of the widest selections of functional vapes around, you're bound to find one that induces the effect you want from your vape.
HealthVape's offerings are available as either disposal vape pens or e-juice pods, with the pens delivering around 400-500 inhales, and the pods good for around 200 inhales each. Here are HealthVapes vape options …
HealthVape's Boost contains vitamin B12 as the main ingredient, but also includes vitamin B6, along with L-Theanine, L-Lysine and Taurine, three amino acids that have been linked to calm focus and energy. Boost is available in either Berry Mint or Strawberry flavors.
Vitamin C takes the lead in Vital, which also includes Co-Enzyme Q10, vitamin D3, vitamin B12 and vitamin A. Vital is available in either Minty Lime or Mango.
Energy's main ingredient is caffeine, with vitamin B12, and amino acids L-Theanine and L-Carvone rounding out the list. Energy is available in two flavors — Citrus and Cinnamon.
Collagen is the featured ingredient in HealthVape's Restore blend, which also contains Glutathione, L-Carnitine, b-Ionone and Geranium. You can choose between Lavender and Peppermint as the flavors.
Chill highlights chamomile, and also includes the calming herbs valerian root and passionflower, along with the amino acid L-Theanine. Chill comes in Lavender and Lychee flavors.
Finally from HealthVape we have Soothe, a melatonin-based vape that also includes passionflower, chamomile, valerian root and L-Theanine. As with every other HealthVape offering, Soothe is available in only two flavors. Peppermint and Jasmine are the choices here.
LUVV is another nicotine-free vape company with multiple vape options designed to suit your mood. Where HealthVape has Boost, Vital, Energy, Restore, Chill and Soothe, LUVV features Rise, Wake, Vita, Glow, Zen and Calm.
Also like HealthVape, you can buy LUVV as either a disposable vape pen, or in pod form. Each LUVV disposable vape should deliver around 650-700 inhales, while each pod contains enough vape juice for around 200 inhales.
Rise is one of LUVV's "energy" vapes, and contains many of the usual suspects when it comes to the ingredients — vitamin B12, vitamin B6, L-Theanine, L-Lysine and Vegan-Friendly Taurine. Rise comes in Berry/Mint flavor.
The second offering in LUVV's energy vape category, Wake adds caffeine to the mix, along with vitamin B12, L-Theanine and L-Carvone. Wake is available in Mandarin Orange flavor.
LUVV says that its Vita vape contains "a combination of vital vitamins for daily use.” The full ingredient list includes Co-Enzyme Q10, vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin B12 and vitamin A. Vita comes in a Mint/Lime flavor.
Glow is LUVV's answer to HealthVape's Restore, featuring collagen as the main ingredient. Other ingredients include L-Carnitine, Geranium, Glutathione and b-Ionone. Glow is available in Peppermint flavor.
Zen is the second of LUVV's vapes focusing on helping you relax. Chamomile is the main ingredient here, with valerian root, passionflower and L-Theanine rounding out the list. Zen comes in a Lavender flavor.
Calm is LUVV's final entry, and features melatonin as the main ingredient. You'll also find passionflower, chamomile, valerian root and L-Theanine in the list. Calm is available in Peppermint flavor.
InhaleHealth wants to help you quit smoking cigarettes, plain and simple. That's the purpose behind its design. But more than that, it's a vape that also wants to help you stop vaping, which makes it unique among the options on the market today.
InhaleHealth's main device is called “Anti-Cigarette,” which is a rechargeable diffuser that delivers nothing but flavor, and that's compatible with the company's vape juice pods, which it calls Life Pods. Each pod contains 2 ml of vape juice, which InhaleHealth says is three times the industry standard, giving you more value for your money.
InhaleHealth's available flavors include Innocent Mint, Never Going Bacco, An Apple a Day, Mango Forward and Peach of Mind.
Capnos’s vape pens have been featured in Forbes and Yahoo! News, who highlighted the company’s Capnos E-Z and Capnos Zero flavored-air inhalers.
Designed to be behavioral aids to help you quit smoking cigarettes, both the E-Z and the Zero fall into the category of "nothing but air" nicotine free vapes that are getting more and more popular in the vaping industry. That essentially means they deliver flavor and a "throat hit" sensation with no additional ingredients.
The difference between the E-Z and the ZERO is in the amount of effort it takes to inhale. The Zero is Capnos's flagship device, and is designed to "mimic a deep-hit sensation." The E-Z variation is the same, but requires only 50% of the pressure the Zero requires to deliver the same hit.
Since the devices themselves aren’t disposable vape pens, they require vape juice pods, which Capnos calls Caps, and which are available in three flavors — Orange Citrus, Lavender and Mint.
Give Our Picks a Try
There you have it — a non-exhaustive list of vapes that are free of known harmful chemicals, and that want to help you quit smoking, give up nicotine vapes, or both.
It's important to remember that no vape, even nicotine free vapes designed to help you quit smoking, can promise to be 100% healthy. There's simply not enough evidence yet to make that conclusion. But if giving up cigarette smoking, or simply giving up nicotine, is your goal, or you're trying to switch from vapes that contain chemicals proven to be bad for you, give some of our picks — particularly MELO and HELO – a try.
