Vape pens are some of the most exciting products on the cannabis market today. Their popularity has exploded due to their convenience and discreetness. Vape pens are flexible in their usage, allowing consumers to vape a wide range of concentrates such as distillates, CO2 oils, hash oils, and isolates, just to name a few. Vape pens are especially appreciated as an alternative to smoking. Moreover, vape pens are stealthy and discreet, allowing many users to enjoy them in peace. Despite the complexity of their usage and the many benefits that they offer, vape pens are deceptively simple to build and use.
What Is In A Vape Pen?
Vape pens are vaporizers that are condensed into the shape of a pen for added convenience and usability. They function similarly to other vaporizers and e-cigarettes, except they usually specialize in vaping marijuana concentrates or flowers.
A vape pen consists of two main pieces: a battery, and a cartridge. Depending on the style of pen, additional pieces can include a mouthpiece, a heating element, and a heating chamber. The science behind a vape pen is simple. The battery quickly heats up the heating element, which in turn heats the heating chamber or cartridge, thus producing cannabis vapor.
What Can You Vape With A Vape Pen?
There are a wide range of marijuana consumables that can be vaped with a vape pen. Be sure to check if your pen is able to vaporize a certain item. Some pens are specifically designed to only be used with concentrates or flowers. Here are just a few of the consumables that can be vaped out of a pen.
THC Distillates have gained notoriety for their purity. Some distillates claim a THC purity level of close to 100%. This is accomplished through a new extraction process called ‘short path distillation’. Afterward, lipids, impurities, and solvents are removed, resulting in an odorless, tasteless, high-purity distillate liquid.
CO2 oils get their name from the extraction process that is used to produce them. They are produced through a process called supercritical fluid extraction that uses carbon dioxide and pressure to extract plant material. These oils are commonly sold in pre-filled cartridges that simply attach to most vape pens. Additionally, they are one of the most commonly used concentrates in pre-filled portable vaporizer pens.
CBD Isolate is one of the newest products on the medical marijuana market. Isolate comes in the form of a white powder that is filtered to produce 99% pure CBD. Isolate is a very flexible and convenient product since it can be vaped, eaten, drank, ingested sublingually, or even added to other marijuana products.
