Are you considering getting a vape pen? Vape pens are essentially small pen sized technology that help you vaporize (hence the vape) materials for smoking. There are many different types of vape pens out there and, depending on what your intended use is, a variety of factors to consider. Let’s discuss them and come up with the best vape pen for your specific use!
Advantages of vape pens and how they work
Vape pens are easy to use and convenient. Not having to keep track of a match or a lighter can save you infinite time and frustration. They’re also much healthier than smoking a traditional cigarette and much more discreet, not emanating nearly as much smoke. They also cost much less in the long run! Vape pens can be slightly more expensive at first but when you add up the cost of packs of cigarettes over months and years, it’s not even close. Vape pens all have similar structure – consisting of a cartridge/tank (which may or may not be refillable depending on the brand), a heating element (the part that converts the oil to vapor), sensors (this tells the vape pen when to turn on), the battery (mostly rechargeable except in the disposable models) and the charger (for rechargeable models).
How to use a vape pen
The first step in using a vape pen is to make sure that it is charged thoroughly before the first use! Think of it as a new phone. It may be frustrating to wait, but it will be worth it and the battery will work for much longer, as well! After your vape pen is fully charged, load the cartridge. Read the instructions for specific directions, but most of the time it’s as easy as just screwing it the battery to the cartridge and the mouthpiece to the other end of the cartridge. Then, simply inhale! Some vape pens require you to push a button before inhaling, others simply use a sensor that recognizes that your lips are on the pen. Take a deep breath and blow it out. There is no need to hold it in as the vaporizing effects make the oil much quicker to vaporize and absorb.
How to know what type of oil to use with your vape pen
Depending on what you’re using your vape pen for, you may want to do some research before deciding what type of pen to purchase. You can get traditional oil or flavored oil. Make sure to read all labels and insure that the oil you’re using with your vape pen has been lab tested for safety. Due to the recent surge in popularity of vape pens, many cities have opened up dispensaries that sell many different types and flavors of oil for your vape pen. Check them out, see if they’ll let you try a few before you decide on one.
When looking for the best vape pen, consider first your intended use. Most vape pens require very little direction and are easy, convenient and safe to use with a little research!
