Vape Pen Guide

Cannabis vape pens are increasing in popularity among Canadians at a very fast paced rate. And it’s easy to see why. Vape pens are discreet, don’t smell, and are even refillable! They are the ultimate method for achieving your desired level of high as you control how much vapor is going into your system. But, for those who aren’t quite on board with the vape pen craze, or don’t understand how they work – here is a brief and simple explanation of their functionality.

What is a Marijuana Vape Pen?

A Marijuana Vape Pen (also referred to as ‘vape’ for short) is a rechargeable electronic device that has 2 main components. A battery, and a tank (tanks are also called ‘cartridges’). The battery is responsible for powering the tank. And the tank is responsible for for holding your marijuana concentrate, and heating it up into a vapor. It is an incredibly simple and revolutionary concept, and works the exact same way as an e-cigarette.

The marijuana vaporizer is extremely easy to use. All you have to do is press a button and inhale! Once the tank is empty, you simply unscrew it from the battery, and replace it with a new one. (Might we suggest our delicious Five Alive distillate). Or brands like Toko, Pura Vida Vape, Flyte, Little Farma, Ohm, and Zen Tanks who continue to prove their product quality.

Vape pens are a very clean method of smoking, as you are inhaling THC & CBD in the purest possible form! It’s easy to see why this simple device has taken the Canadian cannabis market by storm. But, if you’re still not convinced:

5 Reasons to Try a Vape Pen

1. Efficiency

As mentioned earlier, vape pens are probably the most efficient and easy to use device on the market today. All you need to do is pull out your weed vape pen, press a button and inhale, and then put it back in your pocket! Not to mention that you are getting a high dose of THC & CBD, so your desired affects come on a lot more quickly than say smoking a joint.


2. Flavor & Taste

Five Alive THC Distillate

The flavor of the vape pen is truly one of a kind. Although each concentrate is different, you will find that our high quality distillates taste absolutely incredible! That is because our distillates (and other high quality vendors like Toko, Pura Vida Vape, Flyte, Little Farma, Ohm, and Zen Tanks) are extracted with the maximum amount of Terpenes. Basically terpenes are what give plants their unique smells and flavors.

3. Discreteness

Although that’s not an actual marijuana vape pen, it just goes to show how casual vaping truly is. Marijuana pens casually blend in just like an e-cigarette. And, for the most part, if you are smoking them in public no one bats an eye. If Leonardo DiCaprio can pull out a vape in the middle of a dinner party, why can’t you!

4. No Strong Smell

Unlike traditional e-cigarettes that often leave a very fragrant smell depending on their flavor, marijuana vape pens barely smell at all. The smell, if any, is dissipated within a minute or so after you exhale. On top of that, if there is a smell, it’s no where even comparable to the pungent and instantly recognizable scent of a joint or bowl being burnt.

5. Price!

Weed Pens are extremely cheap to use and last a long time. Most .5ml tanks will last an entire battery life or 2 – depending on the battery, around ~24hrs or constant use. And, once you do run out all you have to do is buy a refill or new cartridge.


In essence, vape pens are one of the best, most discrete, cheapest, least smelly, and flavorful methods of consuming marijuana. They also can get you pretty high as the distillates (or concentrates) used in them contain very pure and high amounts of  CBD / THC.
