Weed vape pens are used to ingest cannabis vapor in a manner similar to smoking a marijuana cigarette. Instead of breathing in smoke from burned marijuana bud (flower), weed vape pen users inhale and exhale oil-based vapor, making it a preferred method for many people, especially those who don’t enjoy smoking regular or marijuana cigarettes.
Weed vape pens either use cartridges with cannabis concentrate, such as oil, or whole bud. Cartridge weed vape pens heat the cannabis concentrate into a mist that can be inhaled from the device. Those that use whole bud heat the flower to a hot enough temperature that it extracts its natural oil — which contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) — turning it into vapor that the user inhales.
