If you’ve been wondering how to get more flavor out of your cannabis experience, putting down the lighter and picking up a vape might just be the way to go. Countless canna-thusiasts have been vaping their favorite strains for several years. Ranging from simple, portable vapes to powerful at-home plugin devices, enjoying your favorite cannabis strains can go far beyond a stack of rolling papers or a traditional water pipe. Not only that, but when it comes to fully enjoying the flavor of your dry herb, new and old vapers all agree that vaping is one of the best methods. Who doesn’t want to taste the true flavors of their cannabis?
Flavor Matters at True Blue
Call us biased, but it doesn’t make much sense to buy the best terpenes available from us, only to miss out on most of the flavor because you’re smoking cannabis as opposed to vaping it. Of course, smoking has its own advantages and our cannabis terpenoid experts aren’t here to tell you how you should enjoy your cannabis, only offer suggestions on new methods that could enhance your experience.
We are going to take a look at a few notable advantages of vaping, especially as it pertains to getting the maximum amount of flavor and terpene profiles from your flower. Remember, as always, our cannabis terpenes and flavorings are completely safe for consumption, never made with synthetic carrier agents like propylene glycol, and contain no THC or CBD.
No Smoke? No Joke
In short, vaping simply heats up cannabis, or other dry herb materials, without burning it. With the help of a heating element, this heat releases the active ingredients of the cannabis - various terpenes and cannabinoids like THC and CBD - turning it into a fine, concentrated vapor. Since combustion does not (or should not) occur when vaping, no smoke is created. While the long-term health effects of vapor inhalation are yet to be fully understood, the scientific consensus is that vaping is objectively healthier than smoking, at least as a matter of comparison.
Less Smell, More Flavor
If you’re looking to be more discreet about celebrating twenty minutes past four o’clock, vaping is the ideal method. It’s a refreshing alternative to the pungent, sometimes even overpowering, aroma of smoked cannabis. Vaping produces a light, refined and barely-reminiscent of cannabis odor. This smell is often described more like “cooked popcorn kernels” than cannabis-like, and that’s probably due to the fact that combustion doesn’t occur during vaping. So, if you have a sensitive roommate, you want to keep things low-key on the street or you just want more flavor out of the experience, vaping is the way to go.
Not into Vaping?
Regardless of the benefits of vaping that we’ve discussed above, there are plenty of people who just don’t like inhaling smoke or vapor. If you happen to be one of those people, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. There are plenty of other options out there. Let’s take a look at some of them:
Cannabis-infused food and drinks are one of the more obvious alternatives to smoking. Completely discreet and frequently delicious, cannabis edibles can take the form of just about anything from medicated soda-pop to infused roasted garlic crackers. Given the versatile nature of cannabis butter or oil, it’s easy to make your own edibles.
If you’re not much of a baker or cook, there are many dedicated “gourmet” edible companies that craft carefully curated treats to be enjoyed responsibly. As is obligatory when it comes to cannabis edible advice, just make sure to start with a low dose and be patient - edibles can take from thirty minutes to over two hours to really start to take effect.
Referring to any cannabis concentrate that is taken orally, ingestible cannabis oils are usually encapsulated. Seen in the prescription form as “Marinol,” these concentrated oils are similar to edibles in that they take a while to take full effect and can be quite potent, depending on the dose. However, unlike with enjoyable and delicious treats like edibles, ingestible oils offer little in terms means by which to appreciate any terpene flavor profiles.
Did you know that there are a range of cannabis-infused lotions and balms out there? When applied directly to the skin, topicals provide localized relief for pain, soreness and even inflammation. Due to the fact that many cannabis topicals contain CBD but no THC, people can treat symptoms without experiencing any of the intoxicating or psychoactive effects that cannabis is traditionally associated with.
