Vaping Cannabis Introduction: Things You Should Know

At Local Roots, we aim to provide all types of people with quality cannabis experiences. This includes cannabis flower, concentrates and dabs, beverages, edibles, capsules, CBD, and vaping products. Since recreational cannabis was first legalized, the LR team has worked tirelessly to build relationships with the state’s best cannabis brands. We aim to provide patients with the best possible products no matter if it’s flower or edibles or CBD. Today we’re going to focus on vaping cannabis because consuming weed this way has grown to become one of the most popular options for people who want to consume.

There are currently all kinds of vaporizers options available to consumers across Washington State. The portability, general ease-of-use, and discrete-factor for many of these vape pens has helped millions of customers integrate cannabis into their everyday lives. People who consume cannabis are no longer restricted to smoking cannabis and having to hide the smell of burnt weed or stale smoke.

As long as you’ve got a charged battery that heats up a cannabis cartridge or pod, weed is now able to be consumed anywhere. Whether it’s legal to vape or not, people are vaping weed just about everywhere.

Important Things To Know About Vaping Cannabis

When it comes to vaping you’re going to need a few things. You can choose between a disposable vape pen or some form of battery-operated vaporizer. Both types of vaporizer products bring advantages and disadvantages to the table but they are quickly becoming a go-to product for novices and well-seasoned users of cannabis alike.

Disposable pens are typically filled with cannabis distillate that has been extracted using BHO or Co2 as the solvent. These pens come pre-charged and are usually good for anywhere between 150-350 “puffs”, depending on the size of the pen and the amount of cannabis extract.

Distillate oils are a popular choice for many of the pre-filled cannabis cartridges in Washington State. The process typically utilized for these vape products are known as “fractional” or “short path distillation,” but it is known to produce oils that can reach upwards of 99% purity. When distillates are truly done properly, the oil is often clear, and flavorless.

Battery-operated vape pens require cartridges or pods that are typically screwed into the top or placed into a slot that connects the cannabis to the heating elements. Cartridges have been around for a few years now which means that the technology along with the cannabis concentrates has improved over time. Popular cartridges typically have silver hardware, clear glass, as well as a unique mouthpiece. We personally enjoy ceramic, hard plastic, and the Pax pod products.

Currently, pods are one of the most trendy and popular products and cartridges are still just as cherished as ever. They key to having the best possible experience with vaping is simple if you follow a few basic rules.

#1 Don’t overuse your pen and burn through the battery’s heating elements.

#2 Don’t leave your cartridges in a hot place such as a car or purse, there’s a chance that the exctract might leak out if you aren’t using the original rubber plug.

#3 The rules for vaping do apply to more than just nicotine products. Cannabis, CBD, and vaping in general is illegal inside many businesses. Some sales are restricted in certain cities.
