As the world progresses, so do businesses and brands selling their products. The cannabis industry is slowly starting to introduce more new and improved products and gadgets that can help make it easier for customers to enjoy the effects of the cannabinoids that they desire. Vape pens are an example of those products, and have become widely popular in the market. However, there are some people who haven’t tried out these products and can’t help but wonder and compare how strong their effects are to the effects of an ordinary cannabis flower.
In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss vape pens, what they are, how they work, what are their effects, what benefits they offer, and are their effects stronger than cannabis flowers.
What Are Vape Pens & How Do They Work?
Vape pens are a type of small handheld vaping devices that look similar to a pen. They have a cartridge attached to them containing a concentrate of nicotine or a cannabinoid of your choice which is then heated with the help of a power source that is also attached to the vape. Vape pens are also referred to as e-cigarettes because of their appearance.
There are also many different types of vape pens that you can find in stores online and physically. Some vape pens come with rechargeable batteries, which means that you can use them over and over again, and once their battery dies, you can charge them and then use them again.
There are also some vape pens that have their cartridges attached to them with a screw, and there are also some vape pens that have cartridges that can be refilled and reused. There are other vape pens, which are also known as disposable vape pens, which can only be used once because they don’t have rechargeable batteries or cartridges that can be refilled or reused.
Regular vape pens consist of 5 essential parts that are either separated or connected together. They include an atomizer, battery, tank/chamber, and a button. The way this vape pen device works is that when you press the button of the device, the concentrate which is present in a cartridge held in the tank/chamber of the device starts getting heated. This is because the battery of the vaping device is activated the moment you press the button. That’s also when the battery activates the atomizer of the vape pen.
The atomizer is a part of the vape pen, that acts as a heater. It is used to heat the liquid or concentrate of a cannabinoid present in the cartridge which is attached or placed inside the vape pen. Once the concentrate is heated up to a specific temperature, the liquid will turn into vapors that you can inhale, allowing you to enjoy the effects of the cannabinoid concentrate.
What Are Flowers & How Do They Work?
Now don’t let the name confuse you, these flowers aren’t the type of flowers that you’re thinking about like roses and lilies. The flowers that we’re discussing in this blog, are the dried buds of the cannabis plant which you can smoke. These flowers can be smoked through many different methods such as joints, blunts, and pipes.
A joint which is also known as a cannabis cigarette contains the flower which is grounded in powder form. When you’re going to smoke a joint, all you need are rolling papers, a paper filter, and the flower. After that, all you have to do is light the non-filter end of the rolling paper, and inhale through the filter. Rolling papers are also very cheap and they’re sold at any store.
Smoking a blunt is quite similar to smoking a joint as well, all you need is a blunt wrap or tobacco leaves and the powder form of the flower. Similar to the previous method, roll the blunt wrap and add the flower into the blunt, then light one end of the blunt, and inhale from the other end of the blunt.
Pipes are a bit more different than joints and blunts. They are handheld smoking devices that are small and super easy to use. The first thing you need to do is take some of your flower and place it in the bowl of the pipe and then light it. After that, you just need to lightly inhale from the mouthpiece of the pipe and enjoy the effects and flavor of the flower.
What Are The Benefits Of Vape Pens?
There are many benefits that vape pens can offer, such as:
Most vape pens have small and thin frames that can easily fit inside your pockets. They’re perfect for when you need to calm your nerves down and not have to worry about getting caught or drawing any attention to yourself while puffing away. They can easily be concealed and some people might also mistake them for pens because of their similar-looking appearances.
Portable & Easy To Use
Another major benefit that vape pens have to offer, is that because of their small and thin frames they can easily be carried anywhere inside your pocket. They’re also very easy to use and don’t require much effort because they already have everything fixed inside of them.

Final Words – Are Vape Pens Stronger Than Flowers?
Many people assume that because flowers come directly from cannabis plants, they create stronger effects when smoked, but that’s not the case here. This is because the concentrates or vape oil that goes into the vape pens contains a higher amount of THC which makes it more potent.
So when the oil is vaporized and you inhale those vapors, the THC cannabinoid travels into your bloodstream much quicker than it would when you smoke the flower. This means that the effects produced by the vape pens will also be stronger than the effects of the flower.
