What To Look For When Buying Basic Vape Pens

The world of cannabis vape pens is popping off and there are a lot of great products hitting the shelves. Whether you are looking to buy a disposable vape pen or you are looking for more of a long-term commitment, there are vape pens for every need and price range. With so many amazing products available, how can you choose the right vape pen for you? In this guide, we are going to break down what to look for when buying a vape pen.

The Amount Per Cartridge

Vape pens can vary substantially in size—and not just the physical size of the pen. Depending on the pen and the cartridge size, you might end up with more or less cannabis than you want. In a lot of cases, recreational disposables cap out around 350 milligrams of THC. Individual cartridges generally come in higher amounts, like 500 milligrams. Be sure to check the overall content to get a good deal. 

A Good Vape Battery

One of the biggest complaints about vape pens is that not all of them have great batteries. If you are using a reusable pen, you might find yourself routinely in need of a charge, which can be particularly annoying if you are a regular user. While some charging is needed, if you find yourself plugging it in between uses, it probably isn’t a good brand. With disposables, you run an even bigger risk. Disposable vape pens that don’t hold a charge can mean that some of your cannabis actually goes to waste. If there is no way to charge them, then there is no way to get the rest of the THC. This can force you to waste money when shopping. 

Vape Pen Functionality

You would not believe how much functionality can be packed into a single vape pen. Some of the newer products on the market come with a wide range of added features. Certain vape pens can control how much vape you actually take in, which can be good for beginners. Others come with different temperature settings, which can be particularly important if you burn flowers. Surprisingly, there are even vape pens on the market that include games. Take some time to explore your options to find what is right for you. If you aren’t sure where to start, a disposable vape pen can provide a very basic experience to help you get started.


Vape pens were made to make it easier than ever for you to enjoy cannabis. These nifty devices bring you concentrated CBD and THC in an easy to use way that many people find more enjoyable than smoking. If you want a way to use cannabis that doesn’t make your house smell like it, vape pens are a really user-friendly option. They are great if you want to be more discreet about your use and will give you a way to feel the effects of cannabis very quickly. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for a good flavor. It really adds to the experience!
