What Are Vapes?

Vapes are an easy, efficient, and discreet way to inhale cannabis oil. There are several different types of vapes that can be used to vaporize cannabis, but the pre-filled vape cartridge with a rechargeable battery is one of the easiest. The combination of the vape cartridge and battery is commonly referred to as a vape pen because they are the same size and shape as a pen.

Vape Cartridges

Our vape cartridges are pre-filled with cannabis oil and have a mouthpiece that you will inhale through. The packaging for the vape cartridge includes plastic caps on the base and tip that will need to be removed before use. We currently produce three types of vape cartridge oils. They are full spectrum, distillate and live terpene distillate vape cartridges. The main difference between them is the source of the terpenes, the compounds that contribute to the flavors, effects, and therapeutic benefits of cannabis. Below is more information about the types of vape cartridges.

Full Spectrum Vape Cartridges

Our Full Spectrum Vape Cartridges are filled with a refined whole plant extract from cultivar-specific flowers. The effects and flavor of the full spectrum vape oils will be similar to that of the specific flower cultivar. We list the terpene content for the Full Spectrum Vape Cartridges on our menu.

Distillate Vape Cartridges

Our Distillate Vape Cartridges are filled with distilled cannabis oil from a blend of cultivars. This oil is more refined than full spectrum vape oils, and the terpenes are no longer present. We add specific terpenes derived from non-cannabis plants to produce the desired flavor and effects.

Live Terpene Distillate Vape Cartridges

Our new Live Terpene Distillate Vape Cartridges are also filled with a distillate cannabis oil. What makes these vapes different is that we blend cannabis-derived terpenes into the distillate oil. These terpenes are sourced from sun grown cannabis plants that are bred for their terpene content. These plants are harvested, and the terpenes are live extracted. In order to maintain maximum freshness, the terpenes are then kept at sub-zero temperatures until our lab is ready to blend them and fill cartridges.

Like all of our products, we have our vapes tested at an independent lab that ensures they are free from contaminants, including heavy metals. 

Vape Batteries

Vape batteries are rechargeable electronic devices that power vape cartridges. You will need both the battery and cartridge to vaporize the cannabis oil. Our vape cartridges are compatible with any standard 510 thread vape battery. To use, you will carefully screw the vape cartridge either directly onto the battery or onto a magnetic connector. Make sure not to overtighten so there is space for airflow. Turn on the vape and for most, you will push the button when you inhale. Some batteries also have a pre-heat feature that warms the oil and makes it easy to use. There are different styles of vape batteries with various features.

  • Be sure to stand your vape cartridge in an upright position when it is not in use.
  • Avoid using high powered charges as they can sometimes overcharge and burn the battery out.
  • Cold temperatures may cause your battery to die. Store battery in a temperate environment.
