Vape Pens & Cartridge FAQs
Vapes provide an alternative way to consume cannabis by inhalation in order to obtain therapeutic or recreational effects. Vaping does not use a flame, but a battery that fuels convection and conduction heating that controls temperature to ensure cannabis doesn’t burn and produce smoke.
Among the variety of vaporizers that are used for cannabis are vape pens, which are the most popular option among users. Vape pens are discreet, potent and inexpensive. Vape cartridges are screwed into a battery base that powers the vaporizer, allowing for longer use than an all-in-one vape pen which is disposable after use. Vape carts are portable, just like a pen. Tabletop vaporizers are large and cannot be easily taken around. Most are convection vaporizers that create large amounts of vapor from a small amount of pot.
The main difference between cannabis vapes and the use of joints or blunts is the way they are fired up. A joint or blunt is lit with a flame from a lighter or a match, while a vape is lit through vaporization that occurs at a lower temperature than combustion. The convection or combustion lighting mechanism in a vape is powered by a battery. Vapes also use cannabis oil, while joints or blunts use cannabis flower.
