The world of cannabis is constantly changing and at an ever quicker pace. We see this in breeding with the explosion of finely tuned strains designed to treat specific symptoms and also in the plethora of new ways people are ingesting their medicine. While smoking flower will always be popular, we are seeing a shift towards the consumption of cannabis concentrates like BHO and various other concentrated oils. Marijuana oils and concentrate cartridges and disposable vapes offer clear benefits that other routes of administration do not. Here are some of the major benefits of vaping concentrates.
As much as we love to spark up a joint and pass it around from time to time, there is nothing discreet about smoking a joint or smoking anything for that matter. Smoking leaves a noticeable smell that clings to furniture and clothing for hours which can be a huge inconvenience if you have things to do or people coming over that require a smoke free environment. Vapes, on the other hand, are almost entirely odorless. You can vape anytime, anywhere and what little odor it produces will disperse in just a few minutes! The sleek, cylindrical design of a vape pen also makes them quick and easy to slip into a pocket or purse.
Plants can vary in yield and potency from one grow to another, leading to occasional dips in quality when buying flower to smoke. That’s just assuming you’re sticking to the same strain, from the same grower. If you go to a handful of dispensaries and pick up a gram of the same strain from each you can bet all three will have different potencies. This makes it hard to guess how potent cannabis is before you smoke it. Without a reliable way to know the cannabinoid content you’re forced to feel out how potent each flower is which can lead to smoking too much and burning through your medicine or smoking too little and not controlling your symptoms.
You avoid those issues, and any others associated with consistency, when you switch over to using oils and vaping. Vape cartridges and oils will have their cannabinoid content listed which means that you always know the potency of your medicine. In addition, the oils used in vape pens follow a set recipe and are often lab tested to ensure a consistent product. It doesn’t matter which dispensary your visit, if you get the same brand of vape cartridge you can count on getting a consistent product.
While there is a certain subset of cannabis users that loves to clean their pipe, maintaining glass pieces isn’t very high on everyone’s to do list and neither is rolling a joint or blunt. Vape pens and disposable vape pens, are arguably the most convenient way to medicate. All you have to do is pull the pen out of your pocket, push a button and voila, you have your dose of cannabinoids. You’ll notice that you didn’t need any glassware, lighters, papers, grinders or anything else which makes vaping extremely travel friendly since there’s no additional gear needed. As long as you have your pen you’re good to go, and with our disposable models it isn’t the end of the world if you accidentally lose it in a taxi or hotel room.
With their sleek, low profile design, vape pens are a discreet way to get your dose of medical cannabis. They are also extremely convenient since you don’t need any other equipment to use one, you literally just push a button and you’re ready to go! Perhaps, the best benefit of using a vape is how consistent the distillate oils are in flavor and potency, making vaping one of the most dependable ways to medicated today!
