Searching for the best vaping experience, but don’t know where to start? Let us be your friendly guide to show you the way! The best place to start is by brushing up on industry-standard terms so you can understand the basics. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying the exquisite vaping experience you deserve!

Together with the expanding scope of cannabis legalization on a global basis, the immense popularity of vaping is swiftly opening the market for cannabis extract oils. It has also spurred a new phenomenon: the sophisticated cannabis concentrate connoisseur, the 21st-century version of the wine connoisseur, who has left behind the harsh, distasteful smoke of joints and pipes for a lighter and more pleasant consumable.

In the process of expanding their cannabis horizons, these concentrate connoisseurs are relegating cannabis’s machismo, stoner stigma to the dusty realms of yesteryears. These connoisseurs are as concerned with the potency of what they are vaping as they are with the ranges of oil flavors, aromas, viscosities, and vapor densities, and how these qualities all interplay with the high-tech delivery hardware of various pen types.

High tech does not always equate to high quality, however, and many vape pens are not able to deliver the high-quality tastes and vapors of certain concentrates and oils due to poor designs, cheap materials, and shoddy manufacturing processes. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the general vape pen options currently on the market.

Taking cannabis concentrates to the next level

If you’re ready to explore the exhilarating new wave of cannabis oil vaping, the first thing you need to consider is how to choose the right vape pen for you. First-time vape users can often be overwhelmed by the dazzling array of pens on the market and are often unaware that not all vaporizer hardware is created equally . . .

As you peruse the pens on display in your favorite dispensary, two of the most popular types ought to stand out: disposable all-in-one pens and interchangeable cartridge pens.  

On closer examination, however, there’s more than meets the eye. And many times, the factors that distinguish a high-performance pen from a lower-quality are hidden in the hardware’s interior. We’ll explore this crucial area momentarily. But first, let’s discuss the basic differences of these two pen types:

Disposable all-in-one pens

With disposable all-in-one pens, vape oil connoisseurs simply discard their devices in waste receptacles when all of the preloaded oils are consumed. This style of pen is ideal for those keen on convenience. It’s also the perfect style of pen for ultra-connoisseurs who are determined to sample and compare as many combinations of oil and pen types as possible.

Interchangeable cartridge pens

Interchangeable cartridge pens have more personality and are more suited for vape connoisseurs who prefer to keep their batteries and maintain greener thumbprints. Besides their sleek aesthetic designs, these pens contain powerful, long-lasting lithium batteries and present users the opportunity to swap out different preloaded cartridges within the same device.


A word of caution: avoid refillable oil vapes!

Some non-disposable pens market themselves and their cartridges as refillable, but we advise that you steer away from them. Refillable cartridges require new coils with each oil refill, which are costly and difficult to replace.

If you are completely new to vaping, stick to either disposable all-in-one pens or interchangeable cartridge pens.

Vape Oils Inside Your Pen

The one important similarity between disposable all-in-one cartridges and interchangeable cartridges is the quality of oil inside of them. But how do you determine whether the preloaded oil is what you’re looking for or a waste of money? Poor-quality oils can be cut with PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin), MCT (medium chain triglycerides), and other noxious ingredients, in addition to other toxic impurities and inconsistent amounts of THC and CBD.  

High-quality pens, on the other hand, usually contain top-notch oils that are verified by certified third-party testing laboratories. This verification can usually be found on the products’packaging.
