First & foremost, you may be asking yourself…

‘What is a vape pen?

While you may be thinking of a nicotine device, we’ll be sharing our intel into the cannabis form of vaping. A ‘vape pen’ can be defined as a handheld device consisting of a battery attached to a cartridge filled with cannabis concentrate. Vape pens vaporize rather than burn cannabis, resulting in vapor instead of smoke. 

Similar to nicotine vapes, your cannabis vape pen has a power source that heats up your cartridge, so when you inhale, you intake vapor instead of smoke. When you purchase a vape from Eaze, it will come pre-filled with a distillate & concentrate. The concentrate will look similar to the golden hue you find with others, like dab oil.

Are there different types of vape pens? 

To answer your question, YES! There are a couple different types of vapes, but they will all leave you feeling nice & toasty. Your vape pen can either be a disposable/all-in-one (AIO) or a cartridge that comes with a rechargeable battery. Regardless of the one you choose, your vape will offer a variety of settings that will affect the size and potency of your hits. If you choose an AIO (all-in-one), the cartridge needs to be disposed of after using, while the rechargeable vapes can adapt to most cartridges.

Eaze Vape Pen Types

The Buttonless/Autodraw Battery (PAX Era, STIIZY, dosist)

If you’re looking to ‘eaze’ your way into the vape life, these brands are the most beginner-friendly! Once you insert or screw in your cartridge, all you have to do is inhale for the oil to heat up, and exhale. Yep, it’s that easy! Shop buttonless vapes here.

The All-in-One Vape Pens (Nuvata, Leune, Dompen, Heavy Hitters, Kurvana, Circles, Torch, Dreamt, Provisions)

AIO’s are also a great option for beginners! These brands offer a built-in battery and cartridge so you don’t need to worry about charging, finding a charger or any other ‘high’ maintenance searches for a surge. All-in-ones tend to contain less than 0.5g of concentrate so you can use & toss after one hit. Hope dope is that?

Push-Button Battery

Push-button vapes tend to be for more experienced vapers that want more control over their hits. If hit too hard or long, one can get “too high” – yes, even by the most seasoned of smokers. To use, click the pen button five times fast. Once you’ve clicked, you should see a light flash meaning that it’s on. After you see the light, press twice for the oil to heat. After the oil is nice and hot, you’re ready to vape the goods! Psst – make sure you hold down the button on each inhale otherwise you won’t get anything on your inhale.

Can I mix & match my battery cartridges?

Great question! Some brands are exclusive to their own batteries, while others are made for universal use! Most pens, like Circles, Heavy Hitters & Jetty (to name a few), have a 510 thread battery – meaning they can sync with most universal cartridges.

How much will my vape pen cost? 

Your pen can range from $7 to around $350 depending on how much you want to invest. Check out Eaze’s vape selection. 

What are the benefits of a vape pen over other cannabis consumption methods?

Here are a few benefits to making vape pen life your go-to cannabis method:

  1. Convenience & Discretion. There’s no doubt that smoking cannabis has an undeniable smell & results in large clouds of smoke when exhaled. Luckily when smoking a vape pen, there’s little to no smell and subtle clouds of vapor that don’t linger in the air, making it more discreet when enjoying in public settings.
  2. It’s Safer. It’s been claimed that vaporized cannabis does not release the same toxins as those from flower when smoked – this means healthier lungs! However, in the past couple years, studies have shared the dangers of toxic cartridges that have been tampered with. To avoid hazardous experiences with your vape, ensure you get your cartridge from an FDA-approved brand. Here at Eaze, we take safety very seriously, as well as the brands we partner with, by ensuring each brand is carefully tested to California cannabis standards so you can shop our vape selection with ease.
  3. It’s Cleaner. Vape pens allow for an easier cleanup. All you really have to do is ensure you properly dispose of your cartridge (cannabis cartridges are non-recyclable, so please toss in the trash). This means no ash/resin or peice cleanup!
