Non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant have been proven, with evidence, to be beneficial to our overall health and wellbeing. As a result, several brands have emerged in the UK and other parts of the world that sell products containing CBD and other cannabinoids.
MediPen is one such brand that is popular in the UK, which trades in Cannabinoid vaporizers. Their popularity stems from the fact that they are the brand behind the first legally recognized cannabis vaporizer in the UK.
The MediPen vaporizer has received several positive reviews since it became available in the UK a few years back. People find it especially helpful in dealing with pain, depression, anxiety, and similar issues. Additionally, it became the first cannabis product to be tested by the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK.
This MediPen review aims to provide you with all the information you need about the brand and its products. We will also be looking into reviews and responses by customers who have used the product to find out whether it works as well as it is advertised.
About The Brand
It is illegal to grow, sell, possess or grow cannabis in the UK, except for medical purposes, due to the potential for misuse of the drug. As a brand, MediPen aims to promote the potential positive effects of the plant in a bid to reform the cannabis laws in the UK.
The brand believes that by working together, it will be possible to raise awareness about cannabinoids in people. They intend to change the market for vaporizers, allowing people to gain the benefits of using legal non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
As a leading brand in the cannabis revolution in the UK, they aim to lay the foundations for developing other pharmaceutical companies specializing in the production of licensed cannabis-based medicines.
The cannabinoid extracts used in their products are sourced from highly advanced strains of the cannabis plant grown organically in the EU and the US.
The official website of the brand claims that all the batches of their formula undergo stringent quality analysis to check for cannabinoid concentration, contaminants, and residual solvents. While the lab results are not made available on their website, one can request the same by contacting the brand.
The MediPen cannabinoid vaporizer is a portable device that is fuss-free and easy to use. Designed to look like a pen, it is infused with cannabinoids, including CBD, CBDV, and CBG. With each inhalation, it releases a cloud of odorless, smooth vapor that is suitable even for non-smokers.
First-time buyers need to purchase the MediPen Starter Kit, after which you can opt for only the cartridges for refilling your machine as and when needed. You can also choose to buy the MediPen cartridges in bulk, as it is more cost-effective. The brand gives you an option to buy a single cartridge or in bulks of 3, 10, 15, and 20 packs.
The starter kit consists of a 1 ml cartridge, a USB charger, and a rechargeable battery. The device is simple enough to assemble, and you just need to screw in the parts together securely. The device doesn’t have any buttons, so you only need to inhale to activate the battery and enjoy the smooth and flavorful vapor.
The cartridge contains high-quality cannabinoid extracts blended with coconut oil, which undergo a triple vacuum filtration process before being encapsulated. Being devoid of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), it is both safe and legal to use.
You can choose from a variety of flavors for your cartridge. The currently available flavors include natural, spearmint, vanilla, banana, strawberry, peppermint, passionfruit, peach, mango, coconut, pineapple, watermelon, raspberry, cherry, orange, green apple, cranberry, and blueberry.
You also get some innovative flavors like bubblegum, butterscotch, cappuccino, mint choc chip, candyfloss, grape soda, cherry cola, fruit salad, pink lemonade, banoffee, candy, mojito, rhubarb and custard, coffee, Nutella, pumpkin spice, black forest fruits, cookies and cream, and cinnamon bun.
We are impressed with the vast assortment of flavors, as it caters to people of different tastes.
Social Media Sentiment
To get an idea of what people are saying about the brand, we took a look at the MediPen reviews on the Trustpilot platform. The brand has an average rating on Trustpilot, scoring only 3.2 out of 5. The reviews are a mixture of positive and negative comments by customers.
The brand has received some negative feedback from disappointed customers, mainly for delivery-related issues and lack of response from the company staff. As per our observations, the negative reviews are not for the product itself but based on their customer service, which several people term as “terrible.” The product, on the other hand, is recommended by most, which goes on to show that customers will appreciate a responsible customer team.
The MediPen brand has a total of 8 reviews on Trustpilot, which is too little to declare a proper verdict on the brand. Of this, the majority scores negatively on customer satisfaction. However, with proper customer care service and staff, the brand has a chance of redeeming itself, as most customers feel satisfied with the product.
Otherwise, the customers may move on to other MediPen alternatives, which can be a blow to the brand’s popularity. We came across Reddit users looking for such alternatives even though they were long-term customers of MediPen, and found it helpful for their overall health. The failure (or other issues) in delivering the product is making them opt for a switch.
We hope this MediPen review will be helpful for people looking forward to purchasing the cannabinoid vaporizer from the brand.
While the product seems to be worth a try based on the recommendations of customers, their service is definitely not up to the mark. The brand needs to amp up its customer services and engage more helpful staff if they wish to emerge as a preferred brand amongst audiences.
