Cannabis vapes typically refer to a cartridge or tank containing a concentrated form of cannabis oil, extracted using various methods, such as CO2 extraction or solvent-based extraction, attached to a vaporizer for inhalation purposes. The oil often contains a high concentration of cannabinoids (50-90%) and terpenes (3-10%).
Vapes allow for precise temperature control, providing users with the ability to control and customize their experience depending on the type and style. When inhaling cannabis you can expect a quick acting onset of effects (1 min-5 mins) with a moderate duration (2-4 hours). Making it great for those who need some quick relief from the daily grind.
Cannabis cartridges are the most prevalent and quickly becoming one of the more popular cannabis products. Cannabis cartridges come in a variety of strains, each with its unique cannabinoid and terpene profile. This allows consumers to choose products based on their desired effects or flavor preferences. Cartridges require a 510-thread or ego battery with a 2.8-3.6 voltage range. When activated, the heating element vaporizes the cannabis oil, allowing users to inhale the vapor through the mouthpiece. Vape pens are pre-filled and ready to use, making them a convenient option for on-the-go consumption. Pods are similar to cartridges in that they require a rechargeable battery, and are made up of a heating element, mouthpiece, and oil reservoir. However, pod-based vaporizers feature advanced airflow technology, a leak-proof design and premium materials for a smooth vaping experience. As well, pod batteries are proprietary to their pod system. They are typically rechargeable and intended for long-term use with many brands offering a manufacturer’s warranty to guarantee the longevity of the product.
