Cannabis legislature continues to take shape from California to New York and down to Florida, and even into Puerto Rico where Medical Marijuana was recently made legal.  As more and more states legalize the herb, patients and recreational users are finding better ways to consume the “drug”.  Vaping is currently the trendiest way to consume cannabis because it is discreet, (virtually no smell) and because vaping is viewed as healthy compared to traditional combustion methods. 

 When users vape cannabis, the cannabis is typically in an oil form.  The oil has been extracted from the raw plant material using a hydrocarbon like Butane, or liquid Carbon Dioxide.  Once the raw oil has been extracted, it must go through a refinement process to get the oil to the proper viscosity.  Once, the oil has been refined, it is put into a cartridge or a Tank which is then screwed into a battery.  From there, the user can simply push a button and the oil is heated to a point where it begins to vaporize as the user inhales. 

 There are lots of vapes to choose from, but one of our favorites is the Jet Vaporizer Pen by Subtle Escape.  It's the first mobile, compact, powerful, all-purpose, reusable Jet vapor diffuser to hit the market and has no buttons to push.  The Jet is draw activated, which means the user only needs to inhale and the battery activates.  The battery heats the oil up to the proper temperature for a smooth, clean hit each time.  The battery is small but extremely powerful and provides a huge hit for the user, if they are looking for that! 

 The Jet vape pen also lasts a long time on a full charge.  So no need to worry about it running out of batteries while you are out and about.  A full battery will last about 40-80 puffs depending on individual use. 

 Another cool innovation from Subtle Escpape is the slider case called The Flight, with built-in power bank that keeps 2 Jets charged on the go for weeks at a time.  The Flight is a unique carrying case that includes docking station that can hold and charge two Jet batteries at once.  The Flight comes with an LED battery percentage display as well as a micro USB port for charging. 

 The Jet & Flight are full vaporizing systems that are extremely durable and are sure to exceed customer expectations.  These awesome products can be purchased at select locations in the Denver metro area and be sure to check out subtleescape.com for a complete list of retailers carrying these products and offering coupons on CannaSaver.  Vaping cannabis oil is not only better for your lungs, but it won’t get you completely zonked out like smoking a joint or hitting a bong.  It provides for a much clearer head and won’t leave you tired and sleepy.  The Jet by Subtle Escape is the perfect vaporizer for the sophisticated stoner who cares how he smokes, since he is the most interesting stoner in the world.

Vaporizer vs Vape Pen

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 28 October 2021 in Canna Blog - Latest News

We are incredibly lucky to have all sorts of devices that help us get the most out of our favorite buds. But for many, the rise of such devices can confuse consumers quickly.

Even with these bad boys existing for years, vaporizers and vape pens are often mistaken for one another. As a past budtender, I definitely have been asked probably thousands of times and it has gotten me confused when a customer is describing one of the products but calling it the others’ name.

With so many different marijuana devices appearing over the years, it may be good to check out the similarities and differences between vaporizers vs vape pens. 

vaporizer vs vape pen

The Benefits of Vaping

Some may not be into smoking flower straight from a bowl or even consuming cannabis, but are still looking for a healthier way of consuming cannabis

Well, vaping is one, for starters! 

Here’s why:

  • Easy to use: By simply hitting a button, both will provide more even doses of THC per session.

  • Less cannabis waste: Vaping typically requires less marijuana to get the kind of high you desire. Seshs are much more potent so will require less marijuana.

  • Cleaner hits: Vaping allows for more potent/cleaner hits. With no combustion, the vapor contains much fewer toxins per hit. 

  • Less smell: Marijuana flower often has a strong, skunky smell that some people cannot stand to be around. Vaping cuts out the smell by 60-75%. They put off more of a terpene smell.

Vaporizers Vs. Vape Pens by Definition

Let’s contrast these two ways of smoking by their definition, shall we?

weed vaporizer

Vaporizers

Vaporizers (dry herb vaporizers) are made up of a vapor pathway, a heating oven for the flower, a button for temperature/on and off, and a mouthpiece. 

They are small and handheld, though are bigger than vape pens. 

These devices pack a more powerful punch in terms of energy. Vaporizers use conductive heating which allows for even burning while vaping. 

Brands like PAX and Firefly are dry herb vaporizers.

weed vape pen

Vape Pen

A marijuana vape pen has a defined thin, long design. 

This is why it’s known as a pen. They are made to be discreet. 

The majority of the device is taken up by the actual battery which warms the device. 

A body is there to fire the device and change temperatures.

Vape pens typically will need a cartridge (THC or CBD). The mouthpiece of a vape pen will come with the cartridge you purchase. A variable of the vape pen would be a disposable vape pen with the cartridge and battery all in one. 

When empty, you simply throw the device away. 

Similarities Between Vaporizers & Vape Pens

Now, it’s easy to get the two confused, and here are a few reasons why:

Portable

Vaporizers and vape pens are very portable. 

Being handheld, both devices are great for traveling, break times, or when convenience is needed.

Discreet

Vaporizers and vape pens are incredibly discreet. 

These devices don’t scream that you are smoking weed. This can be useful for some people.

Built To Vaporize

Fundamentally, both vaporizers and vape pens have a power source (battery). 

The battery allows the devices to heat a chamber/coil and vaporize flower, wax, oils, etc. 

Control Of Temperature

Both herb and oil vape devices have an assortment of models. 

Each one offers different temperature control ranges. Some are limited, while others provide a full range of settings.

Rechargeable 

Having lithium batteries, vaporizers and vape pens can be recharged via USB cable in most instances. 

The other type has removable batteries which go into a charging pack. 

Differences Between The Vaping Devices

So, as you can see, they are quite similar. However, here’s how you can distinguish between a vaporizer vs vape pen:

Type of Marijuana Product Vaped

The type of marijuana preparation defines the product you will want to use. 

Vaporizers are typically used for vaping actual buds. Vape pens are used when vaping THC oil cartridges. Though they do make wax/concentrate vaporizers so just be aware of what you are looking for.

Loading Process

With vaporizers, cannabis buds need to be finely ground up and placed into a heating chamber. You will also need to dump and clean out the chamber after each use. 

With vape pens, prefilled cartridges filled with THC oils can simply be screwed onto the battery. On the other hand, oil cartridges come in both pre-filled cartridges and ones you can fill on your 

Vaporizer Heating Chamber vs Vape Pen Cartridges

For the average dry herb vaporizer, a dry herb vape chamber will last forever. It gets packed and cleared similar to bowl packing. Oil vapes, on the other hand, require a battery equipped with a cartridge. Unlike chambers, the cartridge used in oil vape pens is interchangeable and replaceable.

Maintenance of Devices

Both devices are easy to maintain. Charging the battery will be the biggest thing to remember. The vaporizer will need the chamber cleaned out to keep the device vaping with good flavors.
