With modern technology propelling innovation and research in the world of cannabis, there are now more ways than ever to consume your cannabis. The THC vape pen or weed pen is something that stands out as the golden child of cannabis products.
To find out more about why they are so great, keep on reading!
What is a THC Vape Pen?
A THC vape pen is a small, portable device that is battery operated and designed to work in conjunction with pre-filled and/or disposable cannabis oil cartridges.
In general, vape pens utilize their battery to generate enough heat to manipulate the cannabis oil into a vapor which can be inhaled for its relaxing effects.
Most of them also rely on vape cartridges that are pre-filled with cannabis concentrate to supply the high. Typically, they’re filled with either 0.5 or 1 gram of cannabis oil and can easily be interchanged with one another.
Although you’ll typically find many of the higher end vape pens giving you the option to change out vape cartridges with customizable temperature controls, there are also many pre-filled disposable vape pens available on the market as well.
The Advantages of Using THC Vape Pens
There are tons of methods available on the market that you can use to consume your cannabis products, including but not limited to edibles, concentrates and flower itself. However, vaping has a host of health benefits over smoking while also providing you with the same ease-of-use and convenience that traditional smoking has.
To help you decide which method is right for you, here are some of the benefits of using a vape pen over smoking joints.
Ease of Use
Whether they’re loaded with cannabis oil or not, vape pens are popular for their ease of use and convenience.
Their cartridges are small, transportable, interchangeable, and pre-filled with cannabis distillates and concentrates, meaning that they can easily fit in your pocket and be brought around.
Our Hooti Jool Vaporizer Kit comes with everything you need to get started with vaporizing your cannabis. It comes with 1 battery, 1 charger and 1 cartridge that is made by using the THC distillate mixed with organic fruit terpenes.
Once you get your brand new Hooti pen, just simply press the button, inhale and enjoy!
And in case if you need to charge it, the USB charger comes with a pen, so be sure to plug it in and wait for the green light to turn on.
Aside from being easy to use, vape pens carry the advantage of discretion, especially over smoking your weed.
While it’s commonly known that the combustion of cannabis can leave an intense and pungent smell, THC vape pens use vaporization instead of combustion.
Since they produce vapor, not smoke, and do not have an odor attached to them, they can be used indoors and in confined spaces without attracting others’ attention.
Put a Hooti pen in your pocket, go for a walk and enjoy your cannabis on-the-go without attracting people’s attention.
The traditional way of consuming cannabis, through superheated smoke, can cause irreversible damage to the lungs.
Vape pens mitigate this issue by heating the cannabis just enough to activate its ingredients, but not so much as to cause combustion.
In fact, the traditional smoking of weed has been well documented to carry upwards of 100 toxins, some of which may even lead to cancer.
It also increases the risk of conditions such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, as well as pneumonia and emphysema.
However, when it comes to vape pens, they are believed to be healthier.
Since vaping your cannabis produces vapor, not smoke it helps to preserve your lung condition. In addition, a research study has also shown that respiratory symptoms in cannabis users who vaporize decrease when they stop smoking and opt for vaping.
If you’re worried about the long term health consequences of smoking and combusting cannabis, then switching to a THC vape pen will ameliorate all of your fears.
For the most part, vape pens are handheld, and so are their cartridges. If you ever need to bring a large amount of weed around, it would be much easier to carry around a large amount of vape cartridges rather than actual buds.
Not only that, but the cartridges are securely sealed and can fit in your pocket with no emission of any cannabis odor, unlike the dried flower, which can have a very strong smell.
Hooti vape cartridges come in 9 different flavours to choose from and are made with Hooti’s top-shelf blend of THC Distillate and reintroduced strain-specific terpenes.
Each cartridge includes 1 Gram of THC Distillate that can be used to deliver a deep relaxation or elevate your state of mind.
Switching to a THC Vape Pen – Right For You?
Whether you live with a neighbour who does not like the smell of the weed, or small kids, for whom cannabis smoke can be harmful, vape pens can be your option to substitute weed.
Known to absorb the smell of the weed and being less harmful than cannabis smoke, vape pens are great for everyone who wants to protect their loved ones from cannabis smoke and medicate discretely even when indoors.
Vape pens are also excellent outdoors. If you are an admirer of an active lifestyle and like to spend your time hiking or kayaking, try the Hooti vape pen to medicate on the go.
How Long Does a Vape Cartridge Last?
For the average consumer, a vape cartridge will last a decent amount of time, however, this is highly dependent on the individuals smoking routines and frequency of consumption.
Some heavy smokers can get through a 1 gram cartridge in a matter of days, although this is an extreme case. For someone who’s hitting the pen much more casually, a 1 gram cartridge could last for weeks, perhaps even longer.
Some vape cartridges even have the option to be refilled after they’ve been used. Typically, a syringe is used to refill the cartridge with fresh oil so as to not create a mess and waste any valuable oil.
On top of this, many cartridges offer different cannabinoid combinations, with some being Indica dominant, Sativa dominant, or even pure CBD oil.
Final Thoughts on THC Vape Pens
For some veterans in the cannabis world, it can be a difficult jump to take to move into the vape territory. However, if you enjoy the convenience and stealth these pens have to offer, then investing the right pen can make all the difference in your cannabis experience.
As with any other cannabis products, we recommend researching your weed pen and choosing trusted brands from a reputable dispensary.
