Vape Pens: So Stealth, Let Us Count the Ways

Perhaps the greatest cannabis product to hit the market this century is the marijuana oil vape pen. No matter which brand, strain or viscosity you got, a vape pen looks like an e-cig. (Unless, of course, you’re still using a box, in which case, it’s time for an upgrade.)

E-cigs are ubiquitous in current culture, seen as the healthy alternative to cigarettes that still provides the hand to mouth sensation and the nicotine buzz craved by former cigarette smokers. God bless ‘em, let’s hope that e-cigs really aren’t as dangerous as cigarettes are. But also bless ‘em because they brought cannabis oil vape pens on their heels.

Pot pens have little to no odor, unless they’re flavored, in which case they just smell like a sweetly flavored e-cig. As long as you’re discreet in your passing of the torch, so to speak, you should be able to get away with vaping your cannabis anywhere that the nicotine vape pen can go.

Sometimes vapes can even be used in locations where they’re technically not allowed. Sneaking a toke while your kid goes on Space Mountain for the third time has never been easier or come with less paranoia. Even if security asks you to put your pen away, that’s all you need to do. As far as they’re concerned, you’re just getting your nicotine fix.

Walking down the streets of NYC watching joints being passed will always be a thing, and a fragrant one at that. And with looser laws on the horizon, it’s not likely to be going anywhere anytime soon. But there’s a new breed of stoner, and they value their discretion over a lively open air smoke sesh.

The other nice thing about vape pens is that if you use them indoors, the vapor dissipates very quickly and, again, with little odor. It makes parental elevation easier and more discreet so that you don’t have to have the “pot talk” until the tots are ready to learn about the real history of the failed War on Drugs — and also, of course, how to approach each potential substance that might come into their precious lives.

Vape pens are all the rage for a good many reasons, but remember that in some cases you’re going to get what you pay for. It’s a good idea to invest in a good pen with a good battery that you can swap cartridges off-and-on easily and efficiently. That way, you can carry a strain for different occasions and keep your cannabis connoisseur ways under wraps at dinner parties and even the train station.
