I have always been partial to smoking traditional cured flower.
- I like the process of inhaling, the quick onset of effects and the flavor.
However, there isn’t always enough time to pack and roll a joint. Sometimes, the ash and smoke are a problem. I don’t always have access to rolling papers, rolling tray, lighter and ashtray. The odor of smoking a joint draws attention that can be an issue. The budtender at my local dispensary in Denver introduced me to cannabis vape pens. Initially, I was reluctant to try them. I was convinced that this modern smoking method would take the enjoyment out of the experience. Once I tried vaping cannabis, I changed my mind. The process of creating vapor from cannabis oil happens at a lower temperature level than burning dried flower. It avoids combustion and keeps more of the cannabinoids and terpenes in tacks. Vaping also converts a greater percentage of THC. Because of this, vaping provides a better flavor and potency. It takes very little to achieve the desired effects. Plus, vape pens are portable. They are compact enough to fit into my purse or pocket. To use the pen, all I need to do is push a button and inhale. No extra accessories are necessary. The vape doesn’t produce any strong odors or ash. It doesn’t draw any attention. Plus, the better pens allow me to customize the temperature and amount I inhale. The dispensary in Denver offers a wide variety of refillable and disposable carts. They are sold in a wide variety of flavors and potencies.
