When I first started smoking cannabis vapes, I had no idea what the differences between different extraction processes meant, and because of this, I couldn’t fully enjoy cannabis cartridges. So please don’t make my mistakes; grab a joint and get comfortable while we break down the definition of a pure extract and how it affects you.
One question many new cannabis users have is whether they should smoke or vape cannabis. When I first started I was already a heavy cigarette smoker on my way to making the switch to vapes, fuelled by the ever-growing mounds of evidence that vaping was better for you and just as strong as cigarettes. As […]
When it comes to consuming cannabis, there are dozens of methods. From infused joints to sticky dabs, the possibilities are seemingly endless. For those seeking a convenient and stylish alternative to traditional cannabis smoking, the Omura Series X is the answer. Utilizing innovative Heat-Not-Burn technology, and a handy prefilled Flowerstick system, this cutting-edge vaporizer provides a smooth and precise consumption experience every single time. Simply pop a Flowerstick in the chamber, and you’ll be set.
The Series X is the second iteration of Omura’s system, following the groundbreaking Series I. And while the original device certainly turned heads, the Series X is already garnering plenty of attention in its own right, taking home a Good Design Award for its game-changing technology and attracting a wide array of partner brands in both CBD and THC varieties.
As one of the only dosed, whole flower devices on the market, the Omura was built with one goal in mind: to create a future-facing cannabis experience that is inclusive and consistent. The Series X takes this to a new level, and with even more Flowerstick options, Omura is poised to go above and beyond their initial objective by truly offering something for everyone.
Omura System Stands Out
The team behind Omura worked diligently to develop an exceptionally sleek and efficient vaporizer from the start, and the second generation only improves on its predecessor’s capabilities. Crafted by award-winning designer Michael Young, the Series X’s futuristic aesthetic combined with self-heating mechanisms; dual temp options that work perfectly for THC or CBD; and easy-to-use charging base make this device both fun and functional.
Here’s how it works: Biodegradable paper sticks containing 0.125 grams of lightly ground premium CBD or 0.145g of THC flower enter a compartment at the top of the unit, leaving one end exposed to act as a mouthpiece. Sensors within detect when a new Flowerstick has been inserted, automatically activating an internal convection heating component. A slight vibration indicates that the Series X is on. Three lights on the exterior begin to illuminate as the temperature rises — once all lights are on, another buzz signals the start of a three-minute session.
Users then inhale from the Flowerstick’s mouthpiece, taking in smooth, terpene-rich hits. The device automatically turns off at the end of the session. Used sticks are then removed and placed in compost or trash. The unit can then be returned to the charging base to keep it secure and fully charged day in and day out.
Out of the box, the Series X has a high-tech vibe, invoking visions of the latest smartphone. The fast-charging USB-C base has the device ready to go in no time. In your hand, the Series X is lightweight yet sturdy, with a smooth exterior and metallic finish. Designed to be displayed proudly in the home, the unit comes with a matching charging base and goes well with any decor.
Consistency is King
When designing the Omura, its inventors set out to build an aesthetically pleasing yet dependable consumption tool capable of offering a large catalog of cannabis cultivars that are suitable for any occasion, day or night.
THC Flowersticks are currently sold in California and Massachusetts with more adult-use states coming soon. Brand partners include Caliva, TSO Sonomas and Tradecraft Farms on the West Coast, and Revolutionary Clinics on the East Coast. CBD offerings can be purchased in 40 states, with a wide array of blends available from Oriel, Bluhen, Barbari, Ohho and Libertine. Empty Flowersticks are also available for those who wish to use their favorite cannabis or home grow with the Omura vape.
We had a chance to try the Libertine Sour Space OG hemp variety while reviewing the Series X. The earthy and herbaceous tasting Flowerstick offered a mellow and relaxing effect, perfect for those seeking to reap the benefits of non-psychoactive CBD via a simple and effective system.
The Series is available for $99.99. Each new device purchased includes two complimentary boxes of empty, fillable Flowersticks or one box of prefilled CBD sticks. This allows you to hit the ground running and easily enjoy all that Omura has to offer.
Every year, vape devices are spiking in popularity. Whether you’re smoking flowers, concentrates or oils, there is a vape product for everyone! There’s sooo many out there so I’ve narrowed it down to a few of my favorites for 2021. All are lightweight, easy to use, and discreet – and we’ll look at a couple other factors like price point, vapor quality, and style. Check out the top portable vaporizers of the year so far.
Vaping is the by far the healthiest way to consume cannabis smokables. You can can prefilled carts and disposables, or you can use your own concentrates if you prefer. Whatever you decide, make sure you’re using high-quality products.

For Dry Herb
A lot of people associate vaporizers with vape liquids and synthetics and often overlook the fact that you can get dry herp vapes to consume your high-quality flower at exactly the right temperature. More terpenes, more flavor, and better effects.
The Firefly 2+ is a really cool device. It’s small and lightweight with decent battery life and fast charging. It heats up very quickly and you can pick from six different temperature settings between 338° and 437° Fahrenheit, allowing users to get the perfect vapor density with each strain. For example, THCV strains burn better at slightly higher temps than THC. Obviously you can’t make these type of distinctions when smoking.
What’s also interesting about the Firefly 2+ is that all these settings are controlled by the Firefly app. This can be a double-edged sword as it allows for a user-friendly interface but can be problematic if you’re having connection issues or your phone is dead or something like that.
It can take a bit of getting used to, because you need to take a slower draw to get a nice, smooth, full-bodied hit, but once you get used to it really delivers the perfect vapor. Its efficient design makes it easy to use, clean and maintain, making it one of the most convenient portable vaporizers for those who are on the go, or in any situation.
Arizer Solo 2
Arizer Solo 2 made the list for two main reasons – one: it produces excellent vapor quality, and two: it holds a very long charge, probably the longest of any portable vaporizer. The Arizer Solo 2 will keep going for nearly 3 hours on just one charge, plus, it heats up in a bout 20 seconds so no waiting to vape your buds.
The device is solidly built and features a ceramic/stainless steal hybrid heating system. This, coupled with the long glass air path, makes for some thick, delicious, and very smooth vapor. It’s semi portable, small but since it features the glass mouth piece you will need to make you store it in a padded pouch or box. It’s discreet, effective, and for the price, it doesn’t get much better than this vape. If you’re looking for a decent dry herb vaporizer, but sticking to a budget, look no further than the Arizer Solo 2.
Concentrates are great. Highly concentrated cannabis products for maximum potency and flavor. But smoking wax the traditional way, with a dab rig and torch lighter, can be pretty harsh. Using a vape to consume your crumble, sugar, rosin, or whatever is to your liking, will give you smoother tasting vapor and a much better high.
Kandypens Crystal 2
This is my all-time favorite dab pen. Kandypens released the first Crystal vape in 2018 and it quickly became one of the top-selling concentrate pens on the market. Late last year, they released the Crystal 2, a new and improved version of their original design.
They basically just expanded on their original success, but included a more powerful battery (from 900mAh in the previous version to 1200mAh ), adjustable airflow design, and an upgraded atomizer. Its stainless-steel design is very durable and you can definitely feel that when you hold it in your hands. It also has a glass mouthpiece and absolutely has no silicone or plastic parts to impact the flavor of your wax.
And finally, their rainbow design is fire. It has that spilled gasoline look that I love on pipes, vapes, and other smokables. It’s colorful and attention grabbing but not over-the-top flashy. Definitely more feminine but they have some solid-colored black, white, or silver options for male customers.
The Puffco Peak is unique because it’s a sleek, portable device that’s a fun combination between vape and bong. To use, you start off by detaching the glass section from the device and filling it with some water, but just enough to cover the air holes. Then you reattach the glass piece, adjust the temperature, and add your concentrates. After loading the concentrates, you place the carb cap back on and it’s ready to use.
It heats up pretty fast, not almost instantly like some of the others on this list, but roughly 20 seconds depending on the temperature settings, so it’s still pretty fast. The vapor quality is amazing – bold yet smooth, potent and flavorful hits. The water filtration adds an extra element of filtration, plus, it cools the vapor down considerably which makes for an even smoother hit. Overall, it’s an impressive vape that’s portable, high-end, well-manufactured, and delivers the hits and high you would expect from a top-notch piece like this one.
Disposables are exactly what they sound like: disposable, portable vaporizers. These are great for anyone who is looking for discretion, like for a camping trip or even a walk around downtown. You can take a disposable anywhere and, more than likely, no one will have any clue what you’re smoking on.
These disposable vapes from Delta Effex are some of my favorites. They’re extremely well-priced, discreet, and they come in a variety of delicious flavors: Blue Candy Kush (Indica), Ekto Kooler (Sativa) and Wedding Cake (Hybrid). They contain a perfect blend of Delta 8 and Delta 10 THC, as well as some beneficial plant terpenes.
The effects of Delta 10 are mild compared to Delta 9 which most people are used to. But for me, the high from D10 is very alert, conversation, and lighthearted. These disposables are great because they’re so small and lightweight that you can literally take them anywhere. They don’t smell like cannabis so you can use them while out and about without hesitation, and they’re low-priced so you can stock up on them regularly.
Of all the portable vaporizers on our list, this one is by far the cheapest. However, it’s a fillable pen, so you will pay for whatever vape oil you fill it with. The Mig Vapor D1 is a very basic, no frills, easy to use vape pen. It has a very basic slim and basic design, but don’t let that fool you, it’s sturdier than it appears.
One of the best parts about this vape pen is that, even though it’s disposable, it’s also refillable. All you need is a little syringe and you can refill it a handful of times before it needs to be replaced, which isn’t an issue since they’re so inexpensive you can buy a few at a time and stay stocked up. It’s as simple and basic as they come, and couple with the low price point, it’s a great piece for any casual vaper or anyone who is looking for a small and discreet vape pen to take on their adventures.
