Deciding to use a pre-filled oil vape cartridge takes the guesswork out of getting high. Counter to other methods of using concentrates such as a dab rig or even portable vape pens which require self-loading, a vape cartridge is usually as easy as screwing on your battery. At most, these products may need you to push a button and inhale. After you do that, it's up to you to decide how to have fun, or just relax.
For novice cannabis concentrate users, dosing can be an essential concern. Nobody wants an overwhelming experience when trying to enjoy cannabis oil products responsibly. Unlike dabbing, using a pre-loaded vape pen allows for a controlled dose with each inhalation. You can start low and go slow like you always should.
Refillable, rechargeable, or multi-use?
Some pens are not meant to be refilled and will only allow a certain number of pulls/inhales per battery. Some pens do have a rechargeable battery but cannot be refilled. The purpose of the pen is to heat the contents so it can be decarboxylated prior to consumption, allowing you to enjoy the activated terpenes and cannabinoids.
There are three distinct materials you can use: vape juices and oils, dry herbs, and concentrates. Generally, you can’t use one pen for every ingredient, at least, not without some additional equipment. You might think that vape juice and hemp oil are interchangeable, but you would be mistaken.
It's important to remember to use your vape pen only to vape the material it supports. In other words, if you have a dry herb vape, don't try and load it with concentrates, it will wreak havoc on your pen and waste your dabs. Some vaporizers have swappable parts that allow you to switch between loose leaf and concentrates. Make sure you know what needs to be done when you’re switching between modes.
What will you be filling your pen with? - CO2 Oil Safety! Ingredients to look for & avoid.
When vaporized, cannabis oils are commonly mixed with thinning agents for better vaporizing performance. However, when some thinning agents are heated, potentially harmful carbonyl compounds can be produced. Carbonyls are a group of cancer-causing chemicals that includes formaldehyde, which has been linked to birth defects and miscarriage.
A 2017 study conducted at the Medical Marijuana Research Institute in Arizona, looked at the byproducts produced when vaporizing cannabis oil. These popular cannabis thinning agents were studied:
-Propylene glycol (PG or PPG)
-Polyethylene glycol (PEG) 400
-Medium chain triglycerides
These thinning agents were heated to 230°C (450°F), and scientists tested the resulting vapours to detect the presence of harmful compounds like formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein.
Researchers concluded that individuals who vaporize cannabis oil utilizing these thinning agents may risk harmful exposures to the byproducts.
