What Is A Vaporizer? #CatchTheRush

What Is A Vaporizer?

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.

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.

There are three kinds of vape pens you can get:

Thereare pens designed for vape cartridges. You buy the battery unit separately and the cartridges are screwed on like the lid of a beverage. The battery is recharged and reused and the cartridges are easily switched out if you want to smoke something specific in the morning and something 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 ok devices. The device pictured above has 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 sheer 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 a quality half 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. I suggest trying them all out in every situation to see which combination best suits you.

Low Temp Dabs: What You Should Know

Anyone who has been dabbing or smoking concentrates for a long time has most likely taken dabs off a hot nail. Red hot, or even being close to red hot, isn’t the proper way to dab.

Nobody knows any better at first. You attempt to dab like you smoke weed, just put heat to solvent and get high, but through the years of trial and error and learn there is a lot more subtlety and technique to dab the correct way.

If you’ve ever heard of low temp dabbing, now is the time to learn what’ve you’ve been missing. The easiest way to make sure your dab is low temperature is simply by using your stopwatch app on your smartphone. Set it up and fire up your torch. Heat your torch up and when it starts glowing red/orange, hit the lap button.

Now you’re letting the nail cooldown watch your timer.

The amount of time you let the nail cool down really depends on the type of nail, let’s just say it’s quartz. Most quartz nails take at least 45 seconds to cool down before you hit the correct temperature.

If it’s thick like a 4mm, then you will want to wait up to a minute and thirty seconds.

There will be a three to five dab practice period when you’re zeroing the timing of your nail.

If you see the remaining oil in your nail is black or its crusted to the nail, it was too hot when you did you dab. You want a warm brown puddle for remains. This will make for easy clean up with Q-tips. If you didn’t get it all cleaned quite quickly enough, you can burn off the rest with your torch with ease.

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.

How To Buy Cannabis When Budtenders Are Bad

Every day we dedicate hours and hours to connecting with new stores across the state. We’ve been visiting all kinds of shops and meeting budtenders, learning about each city and neighborhood day after day. Throughout all of our travels, we notice that many budtenders aren’t “that” educated on cannabis.

The next time you visit a shop,  you might ask for something and get something entirely different. You’ve got to be educated about cannabis or you might end up consuming something you don’t like. It goes beyond tasting gross weed when you’ve got different types of highs and effects to consider too.How To Buy Weed When Budtenders Are Bad

If you have to step out of your comfort zone and buy something you don’t normally go after, THC percentages are just a small part of what really matters. All budtenders are not equal. Just because you love getting high and have done so for years, doesn’t mean you’re educated about cannabis. To find a budtender that is educated about the products you’re asking about is actually hard to find still.

 

You should look and listen for someone who can communicate knowledge and experiences about products in an appropriate way. This means finding ways to describe things to different types of people. Old, young, experienced or not, a GREAT budtender can communicate about terpenes, cannabis genetics, grow methods, how concentrates are made, the differences between concentrates, their store’s brands, plus they’ve got to know the in’s and out’s of recreational compliance.

It never hurts to do research online. These days, there are plenty of strain reviews on Leafly and Wikileaf, plus there are Washington-specific product reviews on Respect My Region. Many brands also have websites and social media accounts that share product information. We want you to create relationships and ask questions with budtenders, but you’ve got to be able to make informed decisions based on what YOU know, versus what they know.

If you’re a frequent user or buyer, you can attend vendor days, network with cannabis industry people and maybe even tour grow facilities. If the store doesn’t have something that catches your eye, don’t feel pressured into buying something. You can walk out and go somewhere else just as easily as you first chose that store. Some good strains for first-time users include blue dream, pineapple dream, and locktite. If you’re a seasoned smoker looking for the best, professor chaos, blue rush og, golden panda, and pineapple dream are great choices.

While THC packs the psychoactive effects, we prioritize terpenes because we know that’s what drives the high. How THC and cannabinoids interact with terpenes is what facilitates strain-specific effects. Terpenes produce the smells we associate with cannabis. Hazes are usually energizing and typically have high amounts of terpinolene while Citrus aromas come from terpenes like myrcene and limonene. Citrus aromas can help people focus or induce anxiety depending on the individual. Pine smells come from pinene while Linalool is associated with lavender and de-stressing. Terpenes have been known to carry more THC across the blood-brain barrier. This is why a strain can be extra effective, despite having high THC or having low THC numbers.

If the buds look pretty and the budtender confidently says it should help provide the kind of high you’re looking for, don’t overthink the purchase. We suggest you try it out. The best way to know if cannabis is worth trying or not is to ask questions and then just try it. If the buds are thick, full, fluffy, covered in trichomes, or if they don’t look dried out, why not try them?

Legal Cannabis Purchasing Limits In Washington

Forms of cannabis outside of flower have evolved to fit the consumer market. With legalization and strict regulation from the government, there have been strict limits imposed. These limits impact the amount of cannabis that someone can have with them and/or purchase from a recreational store. These legal limits exist to regulate the market and deter people from selling weed for personal profit.

There are a few basic forms of cannabis that must be discussed. Each of these forms has a strict legal limit that comes with. First, it is important to understand the basic forms of cannabis before the limits are introduced. Following these limits is important because they allow our market in Washington to continue to grow.

Flower: This is the most common form of cannabis you are going to find. Before the product has been extracted to turn into oil, or combined with butter or cooking oil to create edibles. Adults, who are over 21, are able to purchase up to one ounce of 28 grams of flower. Cannabis flower comes in a variety of weights from grams to full ounces. You can mix and match as much as you want, but be sure to stay at or below that 28-gram limit.

Oil: More potent than flower, this highly concentrated form of THC is extracted using butane or other extraction methods. Similar to flower there are limits on the amount of oil an adult is able to purchase at one time. In Washington, adults are limited to purchasing 7 grams of oil at one time. Concentrates typically come in gram packages, occasionally you’ll find half grams. You could buy 7 different grams of concentrates and have hit your legal limit for the day.

Edibles: There is a maximum of 16 ounces of edibles in solid form that an adult can purchase at one time. This can be one individual serving, which is highly unlikely, or it can be divided among multiple servings. Washington State has a 10mg per serving limit on edibles. However, you are able to buy packages with up to 100mg of total THC. Meaning, your edibles will be broken up into 10 servings of 10mg each. Edibles are not always packed in singles or tens, but there is a 10mg per serving limit. This is where companies have found methods to deliver more THC to their consumers by breaking up large edibles into 10mg servings. I wouldn’t recommend it, but you could eat 100mg of cannabis from a package of 10 edibles.

Cannabis also comes in a liquid form, specifically tinctures, and drinks. An adult consumer is able to purchase 72 ounces of cannabis-infused liquid.

What’s Not Allowed?

There are products that are not able to be infused with cannabis. The packaging also cannot appeal to children. You wouldn’t want your kid eating a heavily medicated package of skittles, would you? Fruit and juices are not allowed to be infused. This helps prevent children from eating things that they are not meant to eat. Dried meats, dairy products, and any pie that contains egg cannot be loaded with weed according to the Canna Law Group. Some of these laws may seem to be a little strange or strict, but compromises had to be made in order for I-502 to be successful in Washington.

Washington’s Edibles

There are numerous companies in Washington meeting the edible needs of cannabis consumers. Even with strict regulations on what can and cannot be sold, there is a wide variety of products available. Recently a THC infused sriracha sauce hit the market. Ciders, waters, brownies, gummies, and mints are also available. Essentially you are not limited by many dietary restrictions or by your taste buds.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.

Our products have intoxicating effects and may be habit-forming. Marijuana can impair concentration, coordination, and judgment.

Learn About Dabbing & Concentrates

Dabbing has seriously taken off in popularity over the last few years. For all kinds of people, they are a simple and easy way to smoke. They allow you to save weed while getting really high. This method of smoking concentrates offers a variety of types of oil that can be smoked. While some might be better than others, there are enough consistencies or types to meet everyone’s needs and desires.

How Concentrates Are Made

Concentrates are created by extracting the THC off of the plant matter. This can require the use of Butane, or another solvent, although there are other methods of extraction as well. Commercial companies utilize a system referred to as a “closed-loop system.” This means that the system has no openings for the flammable gas used during extraction to leak out. Before the commercialization of cannabis extraction, people would use cans of Butane and glass tubes to extract their own concentrates. This is exceptionally dangerous and should not be tried at home.

In a “closed-loop system” though all of the solvents are placed in a tank that has been pressurized. This tank is hooked up to a tube holding the plant matter. The solvents are then pushed through the extraction tube pulling THC off of the cannabis and into a catch jar. This has one huge advantage according to High Times, the solvents can be recycled.  

How To Dab

In order to take a dab you need a dab tool, usually has a pointy end and a spoon on the other depending on the type. You can also buy glass dabbers that are a little bit fancier, but look better when paired with a hand-blown rig. To go with the dabber you will need a quartz banger or titanium nail. Your local smoke shop or rec store should be able to set you up with all of the necessary materials.

Dab rigs also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Silicone rigs that are portable and indestructible can be purchased on Amazon for as low as $20. Hand-blown glass rigs vary in price and size dramatically, although entry-level models can be found for as low as $30 at some stores. You can also choose to buy a high-quality rig and spend your entire life savings. The choice is yours. I use a custom disc golf piece that was blown by a friend.

 

A rig and a dabber leave you wondering where your concentrate is supposed to go. That is where a quartz banger or titanium nail comes in. Personally, I prefer a quartz banger over the titanium nail because the flavor of the cannabis is preserved better. They do not stay hot for as long. Titanium nails have a bad habit of getting stuck inside a rig, which can lead to breaking at that joint. Titanium nails do have a durability advantage over quartz, but the choice between the two is personal preference.

 

You are now almost ready to dab! Lastly, you are going to need a propane or butane torch to take a dab. Heat either your nail or banger up for 5-10 seconds, maybe less depending on how hot your torch is. Take the concentrate that you have placed on the dab tool and drop or scrape it onto the nail or banger. Now inhale! Those sweet terpenes should begin filling your lungs. Careful, your first dab will probably kick your ass.

Concentrate Types

Concentrates come in a variety of forms. Textures vary based on extraction methods used and the temperature at which the product was purged of any impurities.

 

Butane Hash Oil (BHO), is the most common form of the concentrate. It has a gummy texture to it. Think honey with THC in it. The same consistency and stickiness, but you can smoke it. This form is hard to handle and can be difficult to separate into manageable dabs. The temperature at which the product is purged influences the consistency of the product. Because of its sticky consistency, oil has a tendency to be the most affordable of the concentrates. There are other consistencies that BHO can come in.

 

Shatter starts out as a slab of concentrate spread out on a sheet pan. Usually in one solid piece. It is then broken down into single grams to be sold to consumers. Honeycomb BHO looks exactly how it sounds. This type of BHO can easily be worked with because it is a lot less sticky than oil. Finally, depending on the extraction method,  BHO can also turn into a crumble. Crumble looks like crumbs of THC that can be easily scooped to dab.

 

Cannabinoids can also be extracted using CO2 as the solvent. Utilizing high priced botanical extractors with a combination of pressure and carbon dioxide to divide plant matter, according to Leafly. Hands down, one of the best ways to convert cannabis into usable compounds. This method leaves behind an oil of amber colors that can be smoked using the ever popular vaporizer pens.

 

Possibly my favorite way to dab is with Rosin. This method utilizes both heat and pressure to pull vaporize the terpenes off the plant matter. You can create Rosin at home, according to Leafly, with a hair straightener and parchment paper, although you would have better luck purchasing it from a marijuana store. The result is collected into parchment paper. This technique does not require ANY solvents. Meaning, all you are smoking is THC. This is method retains the most flavor in the cannabis. You truly get to experience all of the terpenes within the strain.  

Clean Your Banger

Remember to keep your banger clean. You can do this with Qtips and 99% isopropyl alcohol. This helps preserve the flavor of whatever you are dabbing and prevents flare-ups when heating your banger.

Dabbing might be the most cost-effective way to smoke. You don’t waste weed like with blunts. You experience all of the terpenes within the cannabis without that nasty lighter taste. Finally, you get exceptionally high off just a bit of weed.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.

Learn About Different Types Of Terpenes

Terpenes are hydrocarbons seen in the oils of plants. While they are an important part of the cannabis plant, terpenes are also found in all fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Terpenes are responsible for providing flavors and also usually produce a highly potent natural aroma. While terpenes differ from one strain to another, there are a number of types that are consistently seen.

Beta-Caryophyllene

Beta-caryophyllene is a terpene that has the scent of sweet, woody, and spicy flavors. While this terpene found among various different strains, it is most commonly seen in topicals due to bonding closely with peripheral CB2 receptors. There are a fair number of medical benefits from this terpene as it has consistently shown to decrease inflammation and fight against anxiety and depression. One of the most interesting facts about beta-caryophyllene is that it reduces an individual’s craving for alcohol. While this terpene exists in many strains, the most popular can be found in OG Kush, Bubba Kush, and Chemdawg.

 

Humulene

Humulene is best known for helping cure cancer and reduce inflammation throughout the body. This terpene also decreases the appetite, which has a far different effect from a number of other terpenes. Studies have shown that humulene has effectively provided treatment for arthritis, bursitis, and fibromyalgia. Humulene is most frequently found in the sativa strain. Aside from cannabis, it can be described as having a beer scent as it’s also found in hops, cloves, and basil. Common strains that contain this terpene include White Widow and Headband.

Limonene

A few other common terpenes seen in cannabis includes limonene and pinene. Limonene contains a scent that is more citrus and lemon-based. It’s is a terpene that is considered to be more relaxing when it comes to effects.

Pinene
