A Quick Guide to Vape Pens

With continued cannabis legalization and availability comes an increase in consumption methods. For those who love the experience of concentrates but not the idea of lighting up a butane blow torch every time you want to get high, vape pens might just be your new go-to Eaze order.

Vaping has become a welcome alternative for those who don’t want to smoke via combustables. However, vaping today isn’t just used for grabbing your nicotine fix without the excess risk to your lungs–it’s increasingly being used for cannabis.

Whether you prefer the flavor of concentrates, controlling your high more closely, or simply the discretionary element of a vape pen, this alternative method of cannabis consumption is something to pay attention to. And within the vaping realm, there are many different routes to take when picking out your pen.

Vape pens are a power source that work to heat up your cartridge and vaporize its content, allowing you to inhale. Your vape pen will work with almost any cartridge, which come pre-filled with distillate and concentrates that typically have a goldish hue much like the oil you pack into your dab rig.

Vape pens can either be a cartridge with a rechargeable or disposable/all-in-one, and will usually have a variety of settings that affect the size and potency of your hits, depending on how much you’re trying to consume. Rechargeable pens can adapt to most cartridges, while all-in-ones come with a cartridge and are to be disposed of after using.

While most vape pens have 510 thread batteries (which gives them the ability to sync with most universal cartridges like Circles, Bloom Farms, Herbology, Heavy Hitters, and Jetty), some brands like PAX or G Pen work exclusively with their own brand’s version, so be sure to pay attention to the details when shopping for your vape pen and/or cartridge.

Pens can range anywhere between $7 and $350, so it’s important to know exactly what you are looking for, how often you’ll want to vape, and how much you are willing to invest.

The Buttonless/Autodraw Battery (PAX Era, G Pen)

Vape pens with a buttonless battery are the most beginner-friendly, and an ideal starting point for someone who is inexperienced with vaping. Once you insert or screw your cartridge into the pen, all you have to do is inhale for the oil to heat up and vaporize.

The Push-Button Battery (Chemyx)

For those who are a bit more experienced and/or want closer control over their hits, a push-button battery like the Eaze-branded Chemyx is a great option. Most seasoned smokers have experienced getting “too high” at least once or twice, and it can easily taint your experience. To heat up your oil, you’ll need to start up the pen by clicking the button five times fast. Once you’ve done that, you should see a light flash, indicating that it’s on. Once that happens, press it twice for the oil to heat. Once that’s complete, you’re ready to vape–just make sure to hold down on the button for each inhale, or you won’t get anything.

The All-in-One 

Another beginner-friendly option for someone who is just dipping their toes into the vape world is the all-in-one vaporizer. With a built-in battery and cartridge, you don’t need to worry about charging, finding an adaptable cartridge, or any other form of maintenance. All-in-ones typically contain less than 0.5g of concentrate, allowing you to use it once and throw it away once you’re done–completely hassle-free.

With a variety of options in the vape pen world, it’s an ideal route for anyone wanting to switch it up a bit. Here are some of the benefits of opting out of other methods of cannabis consumption for vaping:

  • Convenience and discretion. Anyone who has smoked cannabis in public and tried to be discrete about it knows what a feat this is. From the undeniable smell of the flower itself to the large clouds of smoke, it’s almost impossible to smoke your loud in silence. However, the smoke from a vape pen typically has little to no smell, which makes it ideal for smoking in public or other areas that require discretion, and it is noticeably smoother than the hit you’d get from a pipe, bong or joint.
  • Safer than smoking. Vaporized cannabis does not release the same toxins as those released when flower is “combusted,” which allows for healthier lungs. However, studies have come out in the past couple years about the dangers of toxic cartridges that have been tampered with. To avoid this, make sure to always get your cartridges from an FDA-approved brand. Eaze’s brand partners take safety seriously, with every brand fully tested to California cannabis standards, so you can shop our vape selection with great ease.
  • Vaping is cleaner. In the same vein of convenience and discretion, smoking vape pens allows for a much easier cleanup–all you really have to worry about is properly disposing of your cartridge (in the trash–cannabis cartridges are unfortunately non-recyclable). Otherwise, there isn’t much maintenance required–a welcome relief from the ash, resin, and smoke that comes with pipes/bongs/joints.
