Weedjar’s vape pens are among our best products, in my opinion. It may be my bias, but I think vaping is my favourite method of consuming cannabis because of its flexibility and versatility–they are discreet, portable, and hassle-free. You can find vape pens at Weedjar in York, where any budtender will tell you that it is one of the most technologically advanced ways to enjoy cannabis. While there are more extreme versions of vaporizers that aren’t handheld, like the Volcano, vape pens offer a discreet, instant, and quick hit that isn’t as smelly as smoking a joint. This makes them popular with people who are just getting into cannabis, or for people who want to smoke very little. In contrast to joints and bongs, it’s much easier on the throat and lungs since it’s not harsh smoke. Vape pens are also a great option if you’re trying to avoid edibles since they provide less of an intense effect than edibles have.

What Is a Vape Pen?

A vape pen is a handheld device consisting of a battery attached to a cartridge filled with a cannabis concentrate.

The components of a vape pen are quite similar across the board, each pen has the basic four components. Each vape pen varies by design, but the general makeup of the pen usually stays the same.


What Is the Anatomy of a Vape Pen?

The Tank

If you’re using a rechargeable unit, the tank is where the cannabis oil goes. If you’re using a disposable unit for single use, this is called a cartridge. It’s basically where all the good stuff that you want to vape is stored! 

The Atomizer

This is where everything heats up. The atomizer is where the liquid, the herb, or the wax, heats the contents and turns them into a vapour that is ready to inhale. 

The Sensors 

This is self-explanatory – this part of the device signals if the device has been turned on through the push of a button, or by inhaling. Some devices have the feature to turn on through inhalation. 

The Battery 

For the vape pen to work, there needs to be a battery strong enough to reach 400 degrees to atomize the cannabis. Vape pens usually use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. 


What is the Difference Between Rechargeable or Disposable Vape Pens?

There are two different kinds of vapes that you can choose from, a rechargeable vape pen or a disposable pen. The disposable pen is good for short periods or if you’re wanting to experiment with vape pens to start. The pros of disposables are that they are more convenient, but the con is that they will likely cost you more down the line. 

Most of our cartridges for our vaporizers at both our Broadview North and Oakwood Village dispensary use the 510 Thread Battery. 


What is a 510 Thread Battery?

Most cartridges are compatible with a 510-thread battery. This is the most common type you’ll find. It gets its name from the 510mm thread on the bottom of the cartridge that connects to the battery.
