Cannabis vaping (or “vape”) products include cartridges and accessories. Essentially, a vape device is a battery-powered accessory that heats a substance until it produces a vapour, which is then inhaled. Unlike smoking, in which cannabis is burned, the product is heated, releasing its cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD.
Vapes can be handheld or pen-shaped and may be disposable or refilled using pre-filled cartridges of cannabis extracts. A vape is made up of four basic pieces: a mouthpiece, tank or reservoir (which holds the vaping product), heating element and battery.
- Battery powered devices that heats a substance until it produces a vapour which is then inhaled
- Unlike smoking where cannabis is burned, vaping “heats” the product
- Depending on which extracts you choose can have very different effects on the body, so start with a small amount and wait a few hours to see how it affects your body
