I’ve also been partial to smoking my cannabis. I don’t care for the taste of cannabis-infused edibles or beverages. Tinctures are convenient but not fun or exciting in any way. I prefer to light up, inhale and appreciate the process, flavor and quick onset of effects. Smoking provides an experience. It’s great for relaxing on my own, as a curative remedy and for socializing with friends. However, there are some drawbacks to this old-school method. Smoking dried flower requires having specialized gear available. It takes some time to roll a decent joint and can make a mess. While pre-rolls solve these issues, the consumption still causes smoke, ash and odors. It draws attention that can sometimes be a problem. Because of this, I’ve gotten into cannabis vapes. The recent popularity of vapes has led to a tremendous influx of options. There are endless strains to try and all sorts of disposable and refillable carts. I have my choice of full-spectrum CBD, high-potency THC or CBD isolates. I can try indicas, sativas or hybrids and sample all sorts of terpenes. The process is about as simply as pushing a button and inhaling. There are no telltale smells or smoke. Vaping doesn’t create ash or mess. By heating the cannabis oil or concentrates only to the point of vaporization, the valuable cannabinoids and terpenes are preserved. This results in exceptional flavors. Plus, vapes are super portable. The higher quality options allow customization of temperature and dosage. They also provide especially long battery life. While I will also like traditional smoking best, I’ve gotten where I purchase vapes most of the time.
