What is an Advanced Vapor Device or Cartridge?
Advanced Vapor Devices (AVD) were designed and produced in recent years with one goal in mind — provide users of cannabis distillate with access to reliable and premium oil cartridges without breaking the bank.
Before AVDs rose to popularity, handheld marijuana vapor devices were very expensive at the higher end, or affordable but unreliable at the lower end. Thanks to AVDs, this gap between price and quality was bridged, and consumers can now easily find well-designed and superior cartridges having to over-pay.
With the vast selection of cartridges carried by vendors now a days, it can be confusing to find one that suits your needs. But don’t feel overwhelmed by the massive amount of information available, because Cannabud Post has prepared a brief guide for you below. The information below is meant to help you become a pro at vaping cannabis, and hopefully you can give out some advice to vape rookies at your next smoke sesh.
Choose a Cartridge with the Correct Strength
When buying distillate cartridges, the most important thing to consider is the strength of the cartridge. Cannabis flowers are enjoyable only in the right dosage, and this golden rule is no different when it comes to weed distillate. With distillate cartridges, it is very easy to choose the right balance between overwhelming paranoia and uplifting relaxation. Pre-loaded “pens” (common reference to cannabis distillate cartridges) allow controlled and precise doses with every puff. At Cannabud Post, we purchase distillate pens from manufacturers that conduct lab tests on each batch of distillate oil they produce before they load them into each pen. Every time you receive our pen in your mailbox, you can safely assume that each pen contains 1 gram of THC.
Re-usable or Disposable Distillate Cartridge?
Re-usable and disposable pens are two of the most common options available to consumers. Cannabud Post offers re-usable pens that are formatted with a 510-threaded vaporizer battery insert. The 510-thread is most commonly used, and has become the standardized battery for distillate pens over the years.
Some larger companies, such as Pax, offer pens that come with their own internal batteries, which can be charged through a USB cable. Of course, these pens are more expense, as increased re-usability is often correlated with the similar trend in pricing.
Disposable pens are recommended for convenience purposes. For example, travelling with these products is feasible when your destination is a remote region without power sources (camping trips). The pre-charged batteries installed often can support the device until all the oil is vaporized. In cases where the battery outlives the oil vaporization process, some users have even disassembled the devices and filled the cartridges with more distillate oil themselves.
