What Is An Electric Vape? Vape Pen vs. Enail
When cannabis is heated to temperatures between 300 – 450 degrees Fahrenheit, cannabinoids transform into tiny droplets called vapor. Vaping removes any health risk from the harmful byproducts of combustion. That’s a huge reason your lungs are irritated as a pot smoker. It can also cause real health effects.
Portable vape pens and enails both skip the burning and use convection or conduction to heat the surface around a cannabis concentrate. Pens use either a cartridge or tank and atomizer to vape terps and cannabinoids. Batteries power these types of vapes.
An enail on the other hand is a part of an electric dab rig. These setups are generally larger and often need electricity to run.
These are two similar ways to get to the same tasty vape goal. Let’s explain.
Vape Pen vs. Enail: Cannabis Vape Carts?
Vape carts are small attachments to a marijuana e cigarette, often called vape pens. They’rpre-filled filled with cannabis concentrates rich in cannabis’ active ingredients. Most vape carts are loaded with THC, but some contain cannabidiol (CBD, a non psychoactive cannabinoid), and/or perhaps terpenes.
Cannabis vape carts fit on an e cigarette base which contains a battery. The battery powers an atomizer, which heats the cannabis oil gently until it turns into vapor.
Vape Pen vs. Enail: Vape Pens
Some vape pens can vape pure cannabis concentrates that you drop into their tank. These work in largely the same was as the cart vapes. The difference is that a vape cart may contain an added ingredient or two that helps the cannabis concentrate achieve the right consistency. Making the oil or wax less viscous (runnier, more fluid) helps the atomizer handle it.
Vape Pen vs. Enail: Why Consider An Enail?
There are many reasons to consider an enail type set up. For starters, some of the hottest electric vapes on the market right now are mostly for home use. They’re great for parties, large groups and feature some of the most cutting edge technology.
Furthermore, e-nails make dabbing safer and simpler. Dabbing with a torch and nail leaves you exposed to burn risk. With an e nail, there is less exposure risk because there is no open flame. Your contact with the nail itself is also limited. After you figure out the perfect temperature settings, you can easily dab with no fuss.
Many are also semi portable. The Puffco Peak and the Hydrology 9 are two excellent examples. These are not the enails of old. While older enail technology requires a warming period, the latest wave of electric vapes heat up in seconds. It really gives a whole new level of versitility to vapers.
This is especially true for anyone who wants to avoid the risk of exposure to liquidizers, thinners and additives sometimes slipped into vape carts.
