Everything You Need to Know About Cannabis Vapes
Smoking not really your thing? Say hello to the vape.
You’re about to sit down with your favourite film, or share a meal with friends. To complete the ritual, you just need to start your sesh. Alas, you don’t want a cloud of smoke, but you need a more immediate impact than a softgel or edible can afford you. Whatever to do? The extract vape has arrived to solve this conundrum.
What’s in the extracts, though?
Simply put: cannabis. Extracts let you experience all the charms of dried flower without any of the combustion—all of the same wonder, but less smoke than before.
Extracts are made of resin-based cannabis products like oils or distillates. Legally, they can’t contain nicotine or other added vitamins or minerals, but they can contain THC or CBD, or a combination of both. The limit for THC in vape extracts is 1,000 mg per package
WHAT MAKES A TOKYO SMOKE VAPE DIFFERENT?
The Tokyo Smoke vape has received the UL Certification. So? Well, Underwriter Laboratories has been testing and evaluating products for over 100 years and represents the absolute pinnacle of vape technology safety. Still don’t see why you should care? Our vape is the only vape hitting the market to have received the certification. We’re a little proud.
START LOW GO SLOW
As these vapes involve extracts, they have the potential to be much more potent than dried flower—new consumers should approach with caution.
Health Canada has not yet released specific recommendations for the new vapourizers.
Without getting too scientific, illicit dried cannabis can absorb and hold onto nasty things like banned pesticides and heavy metals.
Regulated cannabis is cultivated by licensed producers and tested rigorously for contaminants to ensure that only the highest quality products are sold to the public.
Illicit cannabis producers cannot guarantee dosage, product safety or facility cleanliness.
You should see familiar symbols on labels for vape products, like the standardized cannabis symbol for products containing a concentration of over 10 μg/g THC.
You’ll see these symbols printed directly on accessories that contain cannabis (like vape cartridges). THC/CBD content will be listed too, along with a Health Canada warning message.
