Different Types of Vape Pens

Vaping is easy, subtle, and a great way to consume cannabis concentrates on the go. Many people who vape are able to take their vape with them almost anywhere, and some vapes even offer an odor-free experience, leaving you smelling fresh and clean. It‘s easy to pick a flavored (or unflavored) vape pen cartridge, find a suitable battery pack that fits your vaping desires, and charge and go! Just like that, you are able to vape anywhere, anytime, and discreetly.


The Anatomy Of The Vape Pen

A vape pen (or vapor pen) is an alternative to smoking with papers, blunts, bowls, or bongs. Cannabis vape pens share a name with tobacco-filled pens, (more commonly known as e-cigarettes), but we aren't talking about those today. We're taking a look into vape pens specifically for cannabis, whether they be THC dominant or CBD.

To put it simply: A vape pen is an electric smoking device that contains cartridges with flavored or unflavored THC or CBD (sometimes combined with CBG or CBN) oils, or sometimes types of cannabis concentrates.

A vaporizer is an electronic device that uses a battery pack to heat up the oil inside the cartridge in turn, makes the vapor that you inhale. Many cannabis consumers tend to prefer vaping over traditional smoking to get stoned because it is convenient and there's a lack of smoke.

  • Vape cartridges, which come from a cannabis store,  are prefilled with cannabis oil or CBD, and are usually made of plastic or glass.
  • Attached to the cartridge is the mouthpiece, where the cannabis vape is inhaled.
  • At the other end of the cartridge, there will be a connector between the cart and the battery. The battery is usually a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is either button activated or just turns on while inhaling.
  • Both rechargeable, and disposable pens, which have a pre-charged battery, contain an atomizer which is the heating element or temperature control. This heats the oil or other cannabis concentrate to a high enough temperature to turn it to vapor. 

After screwing in the cartridge to the battery pack, you are ready to toke up by either pressing the button on the battery to heat up the cannabis oil or just begin inhaling with an auto-turn-on vape pen.


How To Choose A Vape Pen

Vaporizers come in all different shapes and sizes: some, a simple pen battery, others, emulate a bong, or come in bigger sizes for volcanoes and other ways to take hits.

The most average and easiest way to smoke a vape is commonly known as dab pens or vape pens. These are the pen-like batteries with cartridges full of tasty cannabinoid oils. Other types of vape pens take cannabis flower or dried herb, but tend to be more expensive and more work to use. It’s important to know the different types of pen batteries that exist in order to find one to suit your needs.

Some batteries just come with one heat setting, and a simple on/off switch.  Others, like the Puffco Plus - Vision, are more tailored to someone looking to smoke high-quality concentrates and even refill their own live resin into the heating chamber.

Other vape pens are more high-tech, and allow each user to have their own unique smoking experience by choosing a heat setting perfect for their concentrate. Choosing a simple reusable battery is a great way to get started if its your first time in trying different vape cartridges and finding a flavor or strain that will give the best high.


Where to Get a THC Cartridge For Your Vape Pen
