I’ve regularly stuck with smoking old-school cannabis flower.
I savor the tradition of it. The buds of the female cannabis plant are harvested, dried & rolled up into a joint. I appreciate the inhalation process, the taste of the smoke & the effects, however what I don’t savor is the work & mess involved, but rolling our own joints or blunts takes time, precision & specialized gear. There’s regularly waste. I soemtimes roll the joint or blunt too thin or thick. I occasionally end up with a honestly unsatisfying & inconsistent burn. I’ve tried pre-rolls but they offten hide sub par bud inside. I don’t want to get stuck with seeds, stems or shake; Pre-rolls still require that I have access to a lighter & an ashtray. The budtender at the local Ann Arbor dispensary finally convinced myself and others to try vapes. I was skeptical about vaping. It’s such a modern process. I felt savor I was losing the honestly essence of smoking weed. I was totally wrong. The vapes heat cannabis oil just to the point of converting it into vapor. They eliminate the combustion process, which retains the integrity of the cannabinoids & terpenes. The taste is entirely incredible. Plus, vapes have become seriously popular & lucrative, inspiring every manufacturer to produce new strains. The selection of vapes are nearly endless. There are all sorts of indicas, hybrids & sativas that provide outstanding flavor & cannabinoid pleased. I can choose from high THC percentages, pure CBD or an equal balance of the several. I have our choice between refillable & disposable cartridges. I can buy rechargable or disposable pens! All I need to do is bush a button & inhale. There is no ash or teltale stink & the smoke dissipates right away, making vapes wonderfully discreet. They are also certainly portable.
