How to find the best for your budget
You’ve probably heard it, “not all pens are created equal.” Lucky for you, and us, we only carry vape pens that we love and actually use ourselves. But even so, it can still be a challenge to choose the perfect pen. If only there was a sorting hat that would just tell us and that would be that.
What is a vape pen? Just like when you light up, a vape pen is designed to heat the THC or CBD oil to a hot enough temperature (315-465 F) to activate the cannabinoids. The difference is that a vape pen can achieve these high temps so much quicker and more accurately.
A standard 510 threaded vape pen is made up of:
- Cartridge or tank
- Power button
The biggest variables that you’ll see when looking for your perfect vape pen are:
- Voltage settings
- Heating element
- Cartridge compatibilities
- Battery size, how many puffs you can get per charge
- Dose control
- Temp control
If you’re new to vaping, welcome! You’re (probably) going to love it! This guide will help you in your search to finding the right pen for your needs and your wallet.
If you’ve been vaping since before it was cool, we hope this helps you find something new and fresh to play around with.
