Using A Vape Pen & Cartridge In 2018

What Is A Vaporizer?

Vaporizers are a hot selling item when it comes to recreational cannabis. It didn’t take long for the convenience and discrete aspects of e-cigarettes to be adapted for cannabis concentrates, and it’s quickly becoming a normal way to consume cannabis.

If you’re looking to get a vape pen and see what the rage is all about, here is a quick start guide for new users. The idea behind vaporizers is to ignite cannabis using a heating coil instead of an open flame. A vape pen is exactly what it sounds like, a pen shaped device that contains a rechargeable battery and heating element.

There are a few different kinds of vape pens you can get:

First, are pens designed for vape cartridges. You buy the battery unit separately and the cartridges are screwed on. The battery is recharged and reused and the cartridges are easily swapped out if you want to smoke a sativa cartridge in the morning and an indica cartridge during the night.

Second, are units designed to manually load your own cannabis or concentrate on a per hit basis. These are more advanced and left for someone who is familiar with dabbing.

Third, is a fully disposable unit with everything included. The battery, heating element and oil are all self-contained in the device and can be disposed of when it’s empty. This is the easiest entry point for vaporizing and doesn’t take much explanation. Just open the package, suck on the mouthpiece and enjoy the experience.

How To Select A Battery

If you want to avoid the full disposable unit, I suggest purchasing a push button battery. Optimum and Vuber make battery devices. These devices usually have three different heat settings, depending on the amount of oil you want to inhale per hit or the type of cartridge you have.

It has an LED light that lets you know when the battery is fully charged or dead. You can turn the device off with five quick clicks of the button. This saves power and keeps them from activating within your pocket or purse. These usually run between $15 and $20 and can be found at most recreational shops. Find a budtender you trust and ask them for recommendations.

How To Select And Use A Cartridge

This decision can be more difficult to make because of the amount of options you have. Type of concentrate, brand, and price are just a few of the options you must weigh before making a decision.

Please take into consideration that price points can be different from shop to shop, but price points for quality 0.5 gram cartridges range from $40 to $60, usually. That seems expensive, but cartridges will last upwards of two weeks for the average user.

Using a cartridge is easy. Just line up the threads and screw it on top of the pen. Set your temperature on the battery, and push and hold the button to inhale. The LED light will light up, letting you know it’s heating and will disable automatically after each hit or after you let go of the button.

Setting the temperature is important for the vaping experience you’re looking for. The lowest temperature is designed to be as discrete as possible, uses the least amount of oil per hit and allows the strain’s taste and flavor to shine through. This setting is best for rookie vapers or smokers.

The middle setting will allow you larger hits, but you use a bit more oil and get less flavor.

The highest setting is designed for veterans who are looking to blow fat clouds and get stoned to the bone. This setting will sour the taste, use more oil, but you’re getting the largest hits possible from a vape pen.

Each setting has positives and negatives depending on your desired experience. Depending on the type of cannabis experience you want, there is a setting for you. I suggest trying them all out in every situation to see which combination best suits you.

Until we know more about the science and health behind cannabis use, the reasons below are the best we could find as to why someone should enjoy weed every day.

10 Reasons You Should Enjoy Weed Every Day

1. Weed can help with digestive issues.

2. Cannabis can help with chronic pain and inflammation.

3. Sativa strains can increase energy levels.

The benefits of smoking pot have been guesstimated by advocates of marijuana legalization for quite some time. Thanks to new laws surrounding the “legalization” of cannabis, researchers can study the drug’s medicinal uses and better understand how it legitimately impacts the body. According to Business Insider, the chemicals in marijuana that are believed to have medicinal applications are “cannabidiol (CBD) — which seems to impact the brain without a high— and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — which has pain relieving (and other) properties.”

GreenRush cannabis is considered top-shelf cannabis which means it is of the highest quality. This cannabis is perfect for users with every level of experience.

NFL Week 8 Highlight Round Up With Blue Dream Pre-Rolls

Pre-rolls tend to suck because they are rolled with shake. It tends to be the stuff that wouldn’t be sold as bud that ends up as pre-rolled joints. Make sure to ask your budtender to give you pre-rolls only proven to have been rolled with flower. GreenRush might be and should be one of their suggestions. Only big-beautiful buds are broken down and rolled up.

Blue Dream is a great strain to experience in a joint because it’s a mellow sativa hybrid that can be enjoyed during any situation. Smoke the whole thing and you won’t have to worry about getting too paranoid or bogged down. This strain is an enhancer in the truest sense of the word.

Light one, and smoke it to the crutch while you watch the dopest highlights from week 8 of the NFL.

Dr. Who #6 Sugar Wax Highlight

The Dr. Who #6 strain is one of the few strains in GreenRush’s garden that wasn’t hand bred by their Lead Grower, Blake Brush. This one was designed by TGA Subcool Seeds, and is the time-traveling offspring of Mad Scientist and Timewreck.

Dr. Who #6 test results came back with high amounts of Myrcene, which is a terpene associated with a spicy flavor and sedative effects. Dr. Who #6 has both in spades, along with strong grape/berry terpenes that shine through in the aroma and flavor.

Dr. Who #6 will turn almost jet black in the last two weeks of the flowering process. The trichomes shine in front of the black/purple flower backdrop. After Dr. Who #6 is put through the extraction process, it becomes a pale-yellow wax that resembles broken honey combs.

“Dr Who sugar wax from has the most exotic smells. Best way I can describe it is grape kush laced w sour skunk juice. If youre a concentrate head, you’ve gotta try it,” Brush exuded on Instagram.

Expect a potent hybrid high, with equal parts body relaxation and mental clarity. The Dr. Who #6 is potent, but still forgiving. Rookie smokers would be best to avoid this strain during the day, but if you’re a veteran in the cannabis game this one can power you through a rough day. Especially if you’re sore from a hard workout or mentally worn out from the daily grind called life.

Professor Chaos Sugar Wax Highlight

Professor Chaos is a strain that sounds like a horror movie of a cannabis experience, but this strain has more bite than bark. This strain is a combination Jack The Ripper and Mad Scientist, which probably adds to its intimidating nature if you aren’t familiar with them.

The Mad Scientist strain is an indica that combines Herijuana with White Widow to give you a relaxing indica with hints of sweet lemon and coffee, per Leafly. Jack the Ripper packs a paranoid sativa punch. Crossing these two extremes results in a mellow sativa hybrid.

Professor Chaos has a deep purple color late in the flowering process, with dark purple and black leaves that reach into the air, adding to its menacing appearance. The overall dark color allows the trichomes and hairs to stand out, making it one of the prettiest girls in the garden.

You could dab this sugar wax during the day or night depending on the type of dabber you are, even the greenest of stoners shouldn’t be overwhelmed by Professor Chaos. Pairing this with a coffee and it will be the kick start you need for any day of the week. As always, make sure and hit these dabs at a low temperature and taste the sour grape terpenes that Professor Chaos is known for.

Big City Lights Strain Spotlight

Big City Lights is a specialty strain designed by NorStar Genetics. The genetic profile is complex and provides a unique experience when smoking it. Big City Lights is a “large yield purple OG in seed form,” according to Blake Brush, Lead Grower for Green Rush Cannabis. Green Rush is a small farm located in Snohomish Valley, they produce small, but sophisticated crops with unique strains. Big City Lights is one of those strains.

Big City Lights’ mother is Dark Desire and its father is Frisco OG.

Dark Desire’s purple color characteristics are dominant traits and consistently passes on its purple flowers to the offspring, according to NorStar Genetics. Dark Desire was the result of Gooey Breeder’s attempt at making a purple strain with extremely dominant characteristics.

Frisco OG another NorStar exclusive and is the offspring of Hell’s Angel’s OG Kush and DeadHead Kush. This is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with a strong citrus and pine terpene profile and carries the pain reliving effects like an Indica, per NorStar Genetics.

Green Rush started with 40 phenotypes of the Big City Lights strain before slimming it down to the final two phenotypes used to breed the final variation.

The first phenotype was a “deep dark, purple yielder,” as Brush described it. The smells are reminiscent of the grape scented markers we used to have as kids. The smell is almost artificial. The grape really comes through, so much so you almost taste it, Brush exclaimed.  Brush described the high from this plant as the feel of an OG with the thump of a strong Indica. You get that stoned feeling in your face, but it never travels to your body. You can stay functioning and productive throughout the day.

The second phenotype had little of the deep purple color as phenotype one, but the high that came with it was too good to pass up. Dubbed “comatose,” Brush said with a smirk on his face. The phenotype was “uniquely strong,” and reminded Brush of a pure Trainwreck high, or the closest feeling to one’s he’s experienced in the last decade.

Over one-third of this line became hermaphrodites, which means the female plants that alone will produce big beautiful buds, started growing male parts which produce pollen and seeds for reproduction, not smoke-able flower. “Hermies” plants can start a chain reaction that can ruin a crop.

“There were some that remained stable, making the [pheno] hunt well worth it in the end,” Brush wrote on an Instagram post detailing Big City Lights.

The resulting high of these phenotypes is supposed to give you the Sativa OG feels behind a strong Indica kick. It will have pain relieving effects while allowing you to stay productive and motivated throughout the day. This strain sounds perfect for post workout recovery. You can relieve your sore joints and muscles while allowing you to stay focused and knock out the rest of your to-do list.

Big City Lights is “has terps to match her color, just oozing berry goodness,” Brush exclaimed.

Blue Dream Strain Spotlight

Blue Dream is one of the most recognized strains of cannabis there is. A cross between Blueberry and Super Silver Haze, in 2015, it was the highest selling strain in both Washington and Colorado’s recreational markets. It’s the strain the plug always had back before a recreational market existed, or at least, that’s what they told you it was “Blue Dream.” The strain has been granted “legendary status” by Leafly.

Green Rush’s Blue Dream has shades of indigo and blue sprinkled under a trichrome crust. The flowers and grow structures are fluffy and tall. The height and yield are awesome. Pair that with a low flowering time at around eight weeks makes this not only joy for smokers but farmers too.

Look no further than Blue Dream’s genetics to find out why she’s wildly popular. Super Silver Haze is a product of Green House Seeds and was a three-time Cannabis Cup winner throughout the 1990’s, according to Leafly. This skunky, hazy sativa provides Blue Dream with cerebral enhancing qualities.

Blueberry by DJ Short took home Best Indica at the 2000 Cannabis Cup. The sweet berry terpene profile and sedative effects balance out the Super Silver Haze and create a hybrid in the truest since of the word.

This strain is perfect for the blue-collar or beginner smoker. This one is made for a day time smoke, slight body effects with a good amount of mental stimulation, but none of the drowsiness from a heavy indica or the raciness from a strong sativa.

This strain is a “sativa lovers dream,” Blake Brush, Lead Grower of Green Rush exuded.

Crown Royal OG | Strain Spotlight

The Crown Royal OG strain from Green Rush was bred and crafted by their Lead Grower Blake Brush, formerly of RedEyed Genetics. Crown Royal OG has an extensive genealogy, making it one of the most exclusive and historical strains Green Rush has to offer.

 

“Crow Royal OG is by far one of my favorite strains I’ve bred. Straight up gasoline terpenes with a beautiful chemical OG backend,” Brush wrote on his Instagram about Crown Royal OG.

The high from the Crown Royal OG is a potent hybrid effect. A noticeable stoney feeling behind the eyes and mental stimulation come on right away. There’s some cerebral raciness with this strain, telling of the Chemdawg genetics. The peak of this high can be rather intense,  If you’re prone to paranoia when you consume cannabis, avoid this strain before bed time.

Crown Royal OG is a cross Royal Chem and Epoxy OG. Epoxy OG finished 2nd place in the 2016 Seeker Cup. Epoxy OG is the product of Josey Whales’ original Gorilla Glue #4 and Double Barrel OG. Gorilla Glue #4 is a two-time Cannabis Cup winner and is consistently a top seller in Washington’s recreational market. Royal Chem is crossed between Chemdawg 91 and Deadhead OG. Chemdawg 91 was used to make Royal Chem and Deadhead OG. The Chemdawg family are usually potent hybrids known for their diesel and skunky aroma profile. The Chemdawg’s have strong head and body effects.

Crown Royal OG has the diesel skunkyness from the mysterious Chemdawg family line and all the bag appeal from the Gorilla Glue #4. Making this a sativa-hybrid with bud structure that resembles a dank indica. Small dense nugs that are covered in trichomes. The hairs are sparse, but thick and vibrant orange.

This strain would be great for a day time smoke sesh and is recommended for the veteran smoker. This strain is surprisingly potent for only testing slightly above 18 percent. Crown Royal OG’s Chemdawg lineage combined with Epoxy OG’s Gorilla Glue influence makes for an incredibly strong effect. Crown Royal is a great example of why you shouldn’t choose cannabis strictly on potency numbers. A strains terpene profile is just as important for effect. Pay attention to how a strain makes you feel. For the ones you like, find strains with similar lineage and there is a good chance you will find a similar effect.
