I have been a long-term fan of smokable cannabis flower.
I enjoy the flavor, smell and experience of lighting up a pip, joint or blunt and inhaling the cannabinoids, then the onset of effects is almost immediate, then however, in certain situations, the smell can be a problem. There is mess involved with rolling a joint, and the process requires specialized gear, however consuming a joint creates smoke and ash. Just recently a budtender suggested that I try out cannabis cartridges. I was initially skeptical, but cartridges are especially convenient and offer some unique benefits. There are lots of openings to choose from, including indicas, sativas and hybrids in high to low THC levels. A cannabis vape cartridge is a current and innovative consumption method. Cartridges can be either disposable or refillable. They include a battery that powers an atomizer to heat the cannabis oil. The heating process activates the oil’s chemical compounds, producing the effect. Cartridges are small enough to fit into a pocket and are wonderfully portable. They allow personalized dosing and the better products give control over temperature. All it takes is the push of a button to heat up the cannabis oil to the point of vapor! Because there is no combustion process, the problem over inhaling carcinogens is greatly reduced, however vapes are a cleaner and healthier alternative to traditional smoking. The onset of effects is immediate and the conversion of cannabinoids and terpenes is incredible. The flavors are amazing. While I will also enjoy smokable bud, I absolutely love the convenience of cartridges. They are so popular that the dispensary offers a wide range of openings and frequently includes special sales and deals.
