Vape Pen vs Flower High

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 01 February 2021 in Canna Blog

As someone who’s worked at a dispensary, I know there are two items that newbies and connoisseurs alike typically flock towards upon entering – vape cartridges and flower.

Flower is absolutely timeless, most likely being the first way you ever indulged on marijuana goodness. However, as legalization has spread, vape cartridges have become ever more popular as time passes. 

Whether you are a first-time flyer or an experienced THC warrior, you’ve become curious as to what is the big thing about vaping and what could possibly be the difference between smoking a vape pen vs flower? 

Let’s get this bout started, the match of the new cannabis millennia, vape pen vs flower high.

Difference Between Smoking a Vape Pen vs Flower 

Though marijuana strains and flower options increase in potency every day, vaping has risen high above the clouds, providing a swifter kick of a high than regular ol’ flower. 

Vaporization works by heating THC to a temperature between 250-400 degrees Fahrenheit which creates vapor. This process optimizes your cannabinoid intake by making just enough heat to create a high concentration cannabinoid vapor. 

This contrasts with smoking flower due to flower needing to combust in order to burn THC. Smoking flower produces carcinogenic chemicals as a byproduct of combustion. This can lead to coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and other lung-related issues. 

Vape cartridges offer an alternative to combustion.

A Note About Vaping As “Healthier”

In terms of whether flower or cartridges are worse on your body, flower, unfortunately, wins for now. 

Though vaping is “healthier”, edibles are the only true way to consume marijuana without resulting in any long term bodily damage.

Even though vaping may be considered better for you, whether it be weed, tobacco, or any other smoking substance, inhaling smoke of any kind is bad for your lung health.

The Good & Ugly of Smoking Flower

We all love cannabis, which typically starts with the smoking of classic marijuana flower. 

Flower provides intense effects that occur by combustion releasing every cannabinoid from the bud in your pipe to your lungs. This produces the strong euphoric or sedative feeling we associate with getting high. 

Much cheaper than vape pens in terms of initial investment of items needed to smoke from. With papers and various cheap glass out there, smoking is really no problem. 

The bad and ugly with our precious flower comes in the method needed to activate the glorious THC: Combustion. 

Flower provides less overall control of cannabinoids with them being activated all at once instead of overtime through this process. As stated previously, combustion causes complications in our bodies we should avoid.

Vape Pens: The New Kid with Unknown Intentions

Studies have shown that vaping is the most efficient delivery of THC into the body. Dosage for dosage, flower can’t compare to vaping. 

With such high concentrations of THC, cartridges hit the bloodstream faster than flower. The concentration of THC hits with a high often described as a “cleaner” high. Not leaving you feeling as heavy as flower can. 

Vapes tend to pronounce flavors more, putting terpenes and other cannabinoids into cartridges for full marijuana effect and tastiness. 

Do note: there is a bit of a learning curve to vaping: adjusting settings, general maintenance, and learning about proper temperatures. 

If you are not inclined to learn about a new device, it may be best to stay away. With flower, you just have to load a bowl.

Let it also be known that studies on vaping and its long term effects are fairly new. Long term effects associated with vaping in any way is yet unknown. Black market/ street dealers don’t always sell up to par cartridges. These cartridges are often known as the vapes that killed people containing vitamin E. 

Just stick to legal companies – companies such as PAX or GreenDot (Labs), who are respectable and responsible brands with high-quality products.

Vaping requires no lighting of a bowl, no use of a grinder. Simply beautiful.

When it comes to smoking, everyone has their choice. It seems like when we truly look at vape pen vs flower high, vaping is the way of the future. Vaping has many things that let it shine and renovate the way cannabis evolves.

Cheap Vape Pens for Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 12 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Vaping has gained a ton of popularity over the last couple of years – remember when everyone was using a JUUL (we still see a lot of these)? Now we don’t advocate for nicotine vapes here, but vape pens for weed are an entirely different story.

Vapes are among the most convenient and discreet ways to get high. They’re handheld, portable, and – depending on what you put in them – they pack a punch. Weed vapes are getting more and more popular – you probably either know someone who has one or have one yourself.

There are three main types of weed vape pens:

1)  A vaporizer that you fill with flower or concentrates.

2)  Vape pens that are only a battery and pre-filled distillate cartridges.

Both have pros and cons. Vaporizers can be filled with whatever you choose – whether it’s bud or wax or whatever. Vape pens are strong and insanely easy to use. Both are discreet and portable.

Unfortunately, vape pens can get expensive. And you might be intimidated by the price point if you’re considering buying one. No worries, we’re here to help. You can find plenty of cheaper options that work just as well as the high-end ones.

Weed Vape Pens That Won’t Break the Bank

You can find vape pens at any dispensary and it won’t hurt to ask the budtender for help when deciding what to buy. But it also helps to go in with an idea of what you’re looking for. We’ll break down some of the best, cheapest options in this article, separated by type. If you see one you like, check out weed coupon websites like Cannasaver to see if there are any deals on the product.

Herb & Concentrate Vaporizers

Herb & concentrate vaporizers do exactly what you think they do – they vaporize flower or concentrates. You fill the cartridge with marijuana and the temperature-controlled device will make it possible to vape. They’re very user-friendly and allow for a lot of customization. Here are some of the best options that won’t hurt your wallet: 

Black Mamba Vaporizer – $48.99

The Black Mamba Vaporizer is a slick-looking with a conduction oven that can hold about 0.65 grams of flower. It’s a different shape than your average vaporizer and the conduction oven slightly changes the vapor you get. At just under $50, it’s a good vaporizer to purchase.

Yocan Evolve Plus XL Vaporizer – $49.99

The Yocan Evolve Plus XL is the newest version of Yocan’s fantastic vaporizer line. The new line is slightly bigger and has several quality-of-life improvements. The vaporizer is now easier to fill and take apart and they’ve added a way to adjust the airflow intake for the perfect vape hit.  

Kind Pen Bullet Vaporizer – $49.99

The Kind Pen Bullet Vaporizer gets its name from its – you guessed it – bullet-like shape. This vaporizer is used only for concentrates. Its shape allows for easy portability and discretion. The pen is also manufactured so that any leftover concentrate gets turned to vape on the next use.

Jump Atmos Dry Herb Vaporizer – $64.99

The Jump Dry Herb Vaporizer is a perfectly designed vaporizer that is both durable and easy to use. Simply pack the cartridge with flower and vape away. The cartridge should keep its heat for a short while, so you can take multiple hits quickly.

Honey Dabber II - $49.99

The Honey Dabber II is a concentrate vaporizer created by Honey Labs. The cherry wood sleeve gives the vape an authentic, natural look and doesn’t lower structural integrity. The piece is about five inches long, so the vapor will be cooled and mostly odorless by the time it hits. This cheaper option gives the look of a high-end vape and works just as well.

AirVape XS Go Vaporizer – $69.95

The AirVape XS Go Vaporizer is a small, portable concentrate vape. This vaporizer is also extremely light so it makes for the perfect on-the-go vape pen. The pen comes with five temperature options and a ceramic oven for easy cleaning. The mouthpiece is detachable so it can be cleaned in alcohol easily.

 Vapium Lite Vaporizer - $79.00

The Vapium Lite is a dry herb vaporizer with eight temperature settings for maximum control. The ceramic conduction oven produces good flavor and vapor. The chamber holds up to 0.33 grams of flower for a nice, short vape session.

distillate vape pens

Distillate Vape Pens

Distillate vape pens differ from herb and concentrate vaporizers in that they need a specific pre-filled distillate cartridge. These are generally cheaper than vaporizers – but there’s a catch. Depending on how often you use the pen, the distillate cartridges may not last long. Unfortunately, they can sometimes be expensive, so make sure you’re getting a good deal.

Honey Stick Elf Auto Draw Vape – $24.99

The Honey Stick Elf is a small, buttonless distillate ‘pen.’ Its boxy shape allows for easy transportation. The magnetic connector piece for the cartridge allows for easy access and detachment. The Honey Stick Elf is compatible with most of the cartridges you’ll find at a dispensary.

Kandypens Slim Oil Vape - $34.95

Kandypens is known for its impressive selection of many different vaporizers. The Slim is just that – slim. It’s an elegant and simple design that will fit in your pocket and take up very little space. It’s compatible with all pre-filled cartridges from dispensaries. This vape is also buttonless and activates and you take hits. 

HoneyStick BeeKeeper – $39.95

The HoneyStick BeeKeeper is a higher-end vaporizer that works with pre-filled cartridges. The vapor is both flavorful and great in quality. This vape pen has a button that must be pressed in order to draw in, but no temperature or heat controls are needed.

Vaping vs. Smoking

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 28 June 2021 in Canna Blog

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of vaping or are vaping as you read this. If not, you’re wondering, what is vaping? Vaping is often seen as the modern alternative to actually burning a bowl. Being a relatively new marijuana byproduct, vaping vs smoking marijuana has become an interesting topic between canna-connoisseurs and newbies alike.

Going head-to-head, we are going to look at the methods of cannabis consumption and decide which is better – Vaping or Smoking? 

vaping vs smoking

The Device Known As A Vaporizer

Vaping has risen high above the clouds in which they were formed, providing a superhero high compared to regular marijuana flower smoking. 

Vaporizers are known as the most efficient way to smoke marijuana. Vaporizing cannabis works by heating THC to a temperature between 250-400 degrees Fahrenheit which creates the titular vapor by creating high concentration cannabinoid steam.

Vaping is an amazing way to enjoy your favorite cannabis with little-to-no smell. 

The Volcano continues to reign supreme as far as dry herb vaporizers are concerned. Though initially expensive (between $250-600), it will help you get the most out of smoking your weed with the ability to re-burn vaped weed a couple of different times. These things also last a long time. 

If you're on a budget, there are plenty of vaporizer accessories and vape deals available through our website.

Vaping vs Smoking: Which Gets You Higher?

Recent studies have found that vaporizing your favorite marijuana does factually provide a grander high than smoking.

People who the studies followed had their health monitored such as blood drawn, blood pressure monitored, and heart rate monitored during different smoke sessions. When vaporized, marijuana can produce grander overall effects than smoked marijuana. Vaping has been reported to make people feel much higher than smoking regularly. 

Dosage for dosage, cannabis buds when smoked doesn’t compare to vaping.  

Vaping vs Smoking: Health Benefits

Though vaping is technically “healthier”, eating edibles is the only true way to consume marijuana without resulting in any bodily damage. Well-built vaporizers are designed to maintain that vapor only passes through materials like quartz or ceramic. They avoid plastics, glues, or rubber near vape heating elements.

Many medical patients have problematic respiratory systems and their lungs may be highly irritated by smoke, so they often find relief in vapor inhalation. 

Disadvantages of Vaping

  • Bit of a learning curve: adjusting settings, general maintenance, and learning about proper temperatures. These can be trickier for older folks due to the curve so discretion is advised. If you are not inclined to learn about a new device, it may be best to stay away.

  • There are concerns about random devices on the market. Do lots of device research and try to stick with well-received brands.

  • Inhalation of smoke of any kind into your body isn’t necessarily good for your lungs. Smoke still contains particles that can create lung issues. 

  • Long-term effects in terms of vaping are still pretty darn new. Long-term effects associated with vaping in any way are yet unknown. Black market/ street dealers don’t always sell up-to-par cartridges. These cartridges are often known as the vapes that killed people containing vitamin E and propylene glycol. 

  • You possibly might get way too high.  Just like with smoking, it is possible to get way too high if you vape too much, which can be incredibly off-putting when wanting a good cannabis experience. Go slow

Smoking vs Vaping: Effects on Lungs

Novice consumers also tend to prefer vaporizing because the vapor can be inhaled in short puffs rather than deep breaths. Additionally, people appreciate the added benefit that it is more discreet to use a vaporizer.

Even though vaping may be considered better for you, whether it be weed, tobacco, or any other smoking substance, inhaling smoke of any kind is bad for your lung health.

The ugly truth about our precious cannabis flower comes in the method needed to activate the glorious THC: Combustion. 

When sparking up a bowl of glorious green flower, many stoners have experienced you tend to cough up unwanted inner mucus. Smoke tends to be harsher than a hit from a vaping device.

Vaping: Pros Vs Cons

The PROS

  • Discreet: One of the most appealing aspects of vaping marijuana is that it doesn’t produce as much of an odor, especially at lower temps. In addition, vaping smells a lot less than smoke, so it’s a smart option if you’re trying to fly high under the radar.

  • More pronounced flavor: Vaping typically produces a more pronounced flavor than smoking. You taste the individual terpenes and cannabinoid profiles of each strain more distinctly, whereas smoking obliterates the taste and subtle nuances between strains. But, keep in mind that the flavor will significantly diminish towards the end of the sessions.

  • Control over temperature: Most weed vaporizers have adjustable heat settings that give you control over the temperature throughout your session. It takes a bit of trial and error to find the best temperature for vaping weed but it can produce a range of effects from mellow and uplifting to a more intense euphoric experience.

  • Efficiency: Vaporizing weed allows you to extract the cannabinoids from your dry herb slowly and effectively. You can often get multiple sessions from a single pack. Already vaped bud, or ABV, can also be used to create edibles and tea, or even as an emergency smoke or vape. On the other hand, when you combust weed, it turns to ash and is no longer valuable or even a thing.

  • No lighter/matches required: Vaporizers don’t require an external heat source, so you’ll never have an incident where you’re stranded with weed and no lighter. 

The CONS

  • The learning curve: Unlike smoking, there is a significant learning curve with vaping cannabis. It takes experience to learn how to vape weed properly, getting the right grind and pack, learning to adjust the settings, and how to inhale from your device.

  • Requires general maintenance: Vaping marijuana requires a bit of maintenance versus smoking it. Keeping your vaporizer clean and in top shape is essential to its performance. After every few sessions, it is imperative that you clean your vape — but this is similar to having glassware.

  • Typically requires a grinder: Most vaporizers don’t function properly without a medium to fine grind. This calls for a good grinder, especially if you’re using a portable vape that runs on conduction heating (which the vast majority do). Grinding increases surface area and allows all of the cannabinoids and terpenes to be extracted from the plant more efficiently.

  • Not cheap: A solid device for vaporizing cannabis isn’t cheap. There are a few decent inexpensive vapes out there, but they typically run upwards of $100. Luckily, they save you money in the long since vaporization is a more efficient method.

  • The device MUST be charged or plugged in: You won’t need a lighter, but if your device isn’t charged or near a wall socket, then you’re out of luck. The good news is that when it is fully charged, most portable vapes can provide several sessions before needing a recharge.

Smoking: Pros Vs Cons

The PROS

  • Smoking is a ritual: The entire process of rolling, packing, smoking can become almost ritualistic at times. It can be difficult for some to break this routine.

  • More intense effects: Smoking dry herb can more quickly create intense and euphoric effects. The extreme temperatures of fire immediately release all of the cannabinoids responsible for this more sedative effect such as THC in addition to THCv.

  • Standard investment required: Smoking doesn’t require as much of an investment upfront unless you are buying a big fancy glass piece. It’s so much cheaper to just buy some rolling papers, which prevents a lot of smokers from delving into vaping.

  • No learning curve: Smoking is simple and doesn’t require a lot of practice. Anyone can light up a joint or bowl, and it’s easy to know when your session is over. Vaping pot is more complex and requires a bit of experience and knowledge.

  • Low maintenance: There is some general maintenance involved with pipes or bowls, but they typically don’t require as much effort as cleaning a vaporizer. Joints, on the other hand, are relatively low maintenance, aside from having to roll them.

The CONS

  • Risks associated with combustion: The reality is, although weed smoke is said to be less harmful than tobacco smoke, it’s still smoke! There is a common misconception that although smoking tobacco is bad for you, smoking marijuana isn’t. When any plant matter is combusted it produces tar, carcinogens, and other by-products like toluene, naphthalene, and benzene. This is an unavoidable consequence of smoking, not to mention the hazards of second-hand smoke and using an open flame.

  • Less control: There isn’t much you can do to control the effects of smoking. You can find a strain with less THC, take smaller puffs, or roll your joint a little tighter, but that’s about it. Vaping gives you a lot more control over the overall experience.

  • Not as efficient: Smokers tend to burn through their stash quicker than people who vape it. Once you smoke a joint or a bowl, it’s gone. When you vape it, the herb is cooked much slower, giving you more opportunity to extract every last drop of THC.

  • Stronger odor: Smoke can be detected from much further away and it lingers for longer than vapor. It’s not even close! When you vape weed, it has an aroma, but it doesn’t have the same burnt smell and it dissipates quicker, especially after airing out the room.

The Verdict?

The winner… well, that’s up to you, really. It's all personal preference.

If you’re looking for a safer, discreet way to smoke, or if you are a medicinal marijuana patient, vaping might be best for you. But, if you seek to get completely blazed, smoking is a cheaper route.

Ultimately, the choice is yours my dear friend, but keep an open mind and if you haven’t tried vaping weed, try it.

You may enjoy it.

The differences between vaping vs. smoking marijuana can be night and day.
