I’ve found that medicinal marijuana is far more effective than synthetic drugs for treating my medical problems.
As a natural remedy, it is safe & avoids long-term setbacks.
However, I don’t necessarily want pretty much everyone to know that I’m consuming cannabis. I would love not to draw attention. While smokable flower provides a fairly easy consumption method & quick onset of effects, the process also creates stinks, smoke & ash. There is a bit of a mess & the need for specialized gear. Smoking weed is hard on the lungs due to the carcinogens, and for me, a current alternative is better, but one of the budtenders at the local dispensary introduced me to vapes. They sell both disposable vape pens & refillable cartridges that are appealingly easy to use. It requires little more than the push of a button. The vape pens are portable & discreet, because the concentrate is heated to the point of vaporization rather than combustion, the cannabinoids & terpenes are preserved. Because of this, vapes offer an extra boost of flavor. Their popularity has led to a nearly endless selection of strains. I’m able to choose from sativas, indicas & hybrids of all potency levels. There are CBD strains that avoid psychoactive effects. The higher quality vapes allow for precision dosing & temperature adjustment. The onset of effects is quick & smooth. The dispensary carries the vapes & the batteries. Some of the models charge by way of a USB. I’m able to carry a vape with me just about somewhere I go.
