Have you ever taken a draw from a vape pen and tasted butane?
Is your vape pen too big to fit in your pocket or too bulky to use discreetly?
Are you getting the most potent high from your cannabis oil, wax, and shatter?
Do you know that the oil you are vaping is clean and pure?
The difference in quality from one pen to another can be dramatic. Not all vape pens are created equal. And, it’s important to find one that fits your style and meets your needs.
Let’s explore what makes a great vape pen, what you should consider when shopping for a new pen, and where you can go to find the best vape pens and THC oil in Colorado.
What Makes a Great Vape Pen?
The best vape pens aren’t always the most expensive. And the most durable pens aren’t always the biggest or heaviest.
So what makes a great vape pen? And how can you know you’re getting smoothest draw and the most THC/CBD from every hit?
1) Durability & Reliability
No vape will be 100% reliable: time, use, extreme temperatures, mishandling, and manufacturer
defects can all affect how long your pen works and how much THC you get from each draw.
Before spending your hard-earned money on a vape pen from a brand you don’t know or haven’t
tried, take some time to look at the manufacturer’s website and talk to your budtender.
● How do they test their vapes?
● Will they be able to stand up to Colorado’s changing seasons, elevations, and conditions?
I want a good-looking pen, sure. But more than that, I want a vape pen that works.
2) Smooth, Clean Hits
Many vape pens require you to pull especially hard to get a good hit, either by design or due to clogs. Others leave an unpleasant aftertaste that makes it hard to enjoy your THC or CBD oil. And some burn too hot, singeing the oil and reducing the total cannabinoids you get with each draw.
To address clogs and allow for more even, controlled heating of the cannabis oil, many manufacturers are turning to ceramic, wickless atomizers. And some cannabis concentrate companies, like Karing Kind Labs, have developed their own line of vape pens, designed specifically to work with clean-extracted CO 2 oil and deliver a healthier, smoother, more controlled, and higher-potency vape experience.
3) Greater Temperature Control (for a Better High)
When the heating elements in a vape pen burn too hot (over 455° F), you lose some of the THCA that would have converted to psychoactive THC at a lower temperature. This can also make for a harsher, less flavorful hit.
At lower temperatures (below 347° F), however, cannabinoids don’t convert as efficiently. This means you’ll get a less intense high with a higher ratio of terpenes.
To get the most out of every hit, whether you want the strongest high or the best aroma and flavor, look for a vape pen that gives you greater control over the temperature.
4) Easy to Use (and the Right Size)
Some vapes are button activated. Others work as soon as you inhale through the mouthpiece. A number of pens use replaceable cartridges, while others have refillable chambers (and some are disposable/recyclable). One class of vape is large and bulky, while another is slim and discreet.
Do you want something lightweight like a joint, or heavy like a smartphone?
Start by looking for highly-reviewed pens in different styles, paying attention to user reviews. If you have friends who vape, ask if you can try theirs before buying so you know if you like the feel of it and the way it hits.
How easy a pen is to use depends on whether it meets your needs.
Karing Kind Labs Vape Pens
One of the most reliable and sought after brands in vaping is also one of the first in Colorado.
Karing Kind Labs uses a patented, wickless system with a ceramic coil, which gives you greater control over temperature for a smoother, more flavorful hit every time.
The proprietary technology was specifically designed to work with the Lab’s pure, CO 2 extracted cannabis oils, so you know you’re getting the most cannabinoids and terpenes (flavor) in every pull.
And Karing Kind Labs vape pens are more than just a pretty face. After more than 2 years of rigorous field testing, they have a 98% success rate, even AFTER being abused and exposed to extreme conditions (like a hot car in summer, being left out in the winter, or brought above 12,000 feet).
Button-Activated Vape Pen
The Karing Kind Labs button-activated pen comes pre-loaded with 250mg or 500mg of Karing Kind Labs CO 2 Oil. Easy-to- refill cartridges (including pre-filled carts), long-lasting batteries, and a touch-sensitive button allow for a smoother, more controlled draw.
With a sleek design, impressive durability, and sized to fit in a pocket or purse, this durable, easy-to-use pen is not only one of the best on the market, but it’s less than half the price of many other pens that offer the same features.
Air-Activated Vape Pen
No buttons. No on switch. Just 250mg-500mg of pure hash oil in a durable, refillable, discreet vape pen.
Disposable Vape Pens
For those days when you just don’t want to have to worry about whether you’ll lose or break your vape pen, Karing Kind Labs developed the disposable (and fully recyclable) vape pen.
Specially designed and fully recyclable, these low-cost, low-stress pens are the perfect alternative when you need a discreet option that you can take on the go. The durable devices are small and sleek, and each one comes pre-loaded with Karing Kind Lab’s flagship CO 2 oil.
● CBD options as well
Each Karing Kind Labs vape pen (not including disposables) uses easy-to- refill, easy-to-replace cartridges. Whether you prefer sativa, indica, hybrid, CBD, or strain-specific oil, it’s always easy to get the product you want. Just buy a pre-filled cart or grab your favorite oil or terp juice and reload your own.
