The budtender at my regular Abuequerque dispensary talked me into trying cannabis vapes.
I have always been dedicated to dried flower.
I preferred the old-school smoking method and quick onset of effects. I appreciate the process and skill involved with rolling a perfect joint. There is something satisfying about lighting up, inhaling and getting that burst of flavor and aromas. However, smoking is also messy, time-consuming and not discreet. If I light up a joint, everyone knows. I need to have access to various tools, and there’s smoke and ash involved. I was interested in a consumption method that would provide the same rapid effects but also offer greater portability, convenience and discretion. Cannabis vapes were the ideal solution. This modern version of traditional smoking is extremely simple. There are disposable and refillable vape pens that fit right into a pocket. The better quality devices allow the user to determine dosage and temperature. They feature long-lasting battery life. All it takes is the press of a button to inhale the precise amount of cannabinoids. There is no smoke, smells or ash. There is no need for any additional accessories. Because vaping only heats the cannabis oil to the point of vaporization instead of combustion, the desirable cannabinoids and terpenes are preserved. This provides superior flavor, taste and health benefits. The popularity of cannabis vapes has led to a huge selection of brands and strains on the market. I can choose from indicas, hybrids, sativas and CBD cartridges. I can be picky about the THC percentages, CBD levels and terpenes. I now use vapes more often than dried flower.
