In an effort to make toking more innovative, the industry evolved into using vape cartridges to offer an alternative to smoking. However, they need extra equipment in order to function and then there’s the residues to contend with.
The cartridges are small attachments to a vape pen. They are sold pre-filled with cannabis oil concentrate. The battery (usually activated by the push of a button) powers an atomizer, which heats the cannabis oil at low temperatures and turns the oil into vapors. There is almost no smoke, since the oil is heated only enough to vaporize it, and there is very little odor. In summary, they’re super discrete, easy to use, and work REALLY fast. So with that being said, they have some perks. But man oh man, what a mess.
I put the dead ones in the recycling bin. Is that where they really go? They’re made out of metal, plastic, and glass… A roach you can just throw away, these things linger.
I can definitely see the need for the alternatives to traditional combustion. But between the packaging and the cartridges that end up being tossed, it just doesn’t seem that environmentally responsible. I just think that a product coming from an industry that supports wellness to individuals should be supporting wellness of the environment also. Just a thought…
Final Thought: Kudos to CT for minimal packaging. In some cases one will have to peel through 5 or 6 layers in order to get to their prize. CT only has one. Open the bottle and enjoy.
