Buddha Grass

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 23 May 2022 in Dispatches from the Highlands

Review of Buddha Grass

By W. Goodwin

We arise in the predawn darkness fearing another disappointment. Are the clouds of the previous three days still blocking the giant peaks from our hungry eyes? Barefoot, we cross the dirt floor of the typical Nepali ‘guest house’ and step out into the cold air… Not a cloud in the blue-black sky! The astonishing mass of 26,795-foot Dhaulagiri looms over us, her eastern face already radiant in the sun. Shivering, we turn around and stare at the ragged silhouette of the Annapurna massif. Between the two giant mountains and in the gorge far below us, the Kali Gandaki River roars through its gorge.

We hurry back inside, boot-up and stow our stuff. Packs once again on our backs, we hit the still-dark trail slugging water and scarfing down granola bars.

We are hiking the steep sides of the planet’s deepest river gorge on a footpath connecting Nepal and Tibet. We never know what we will see next on the trail: a pushy crowd of brown yaks, a herd of long-haired goats, barefoot porters with filing cabinets on their backs, women hauling thirty-kilo bundles of wood, robed monks chanting as they trek, itinerant sadhus with flashing eyes…

We finally emerge from the Kali Gandaki gorge into the unfiltered light of the high Tibetan plateau. Being in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, the terrain spreading out before us is brown and deforested, the only green being scattered rice terraces. We have entered the ancient and secretive province of Mustang.

Around mid-afternoon, two saffron-robed monks approach us on the trail. They are accompanied by an unusual honey-brown yak carrying four large woven bags on its back. The monks stop and attempt to speak with us. They know about four words of English and we know not a single word of whatever language they speak. After fruitless attempts to understand each another, one of the monks reaches into a bag on the yak’s back and extracts what looks like a dried-out, cornhusk-covered tamale wrapped tightly with a thin vine.

A twinkle in his eye, the monk removes the vine from the dehydrated ‘tamale’ and carefully peels back the husk to expose a core of desiccated plant material. To my eye it looks like very old marijuana. With a serious, almost formal look on his face, the monk hands the ‘tamale’ to me. My trail mate and I peer closely at it. Greyish in color, it looks like a few cannabis tops have been crushed together, stems, seeds and all, and dried for years. Breaking the bundle open a little, I sniff it… vague scent of dust is all I get. It is so compressed and dried-out I cannot separate out a single stem. It was the least promising cannabis I have ever seen.

The monks manage to convey they would like to sell us some. Their price is so low we buy a couple of the super-desiccated ‘tamales’ just to be good sports. The monks jabber at us and smile through missing teeth, we jabber at them and smile back. Then we part ways.

As they disappear behind us, I almost throw the cornhusk-wrapped junk into a ditch, but looking around at the spectacular high-altitude vistas surrounding us, I decide to hold onto the ‘tamales’ a little longer.

Later that day we decide to try the Buddha Grass, a name I made up on the spot (literally two miles high) for a strain I have never seen listed anywhere, not even on Cannapages. I suspected it might be good for a laugh and probably a lot of coughing, but not much more.

I pry open one of the ‘tamales’ and pull back the husk. I break off a nub and crumble the dusty material between my fingers. I stuff it into our pipe and fire it up. Each of us takes a hit. It is surprisingly smooth but tasteless. I hold the smoke in my lungs for ten seconds and just as I exhale, hallucinations begin swarming my brain. I fall into some sort of waking dream where the most bizarre things occur…

Hours later I return to reality. I look around and discover I am inside a cave cut into a low cliff. My buddy is rolled up against a wall. Hopefully he is still alive. An almost naked man sits on his haunches watching us. Later after my buddy awakens we learn this man found us wandering and incoherent. We are, apparently, in his home.

To this day, that Buddha Grass remains the most hallucinatory, mind-bending cannabis I have ever smoked. We tried without success to find more. Maybe it was the language barrier, or perhaps those monks were the only people on the planet with a stash of that innocent-looking stuff, but for whatever reason, those ‘tamales’ were the only Buddha Grass I ever tasted.

Best Weed Strains in Colorado for 2016

Posted by CANNASaver on Sunday, 06 November 2016 in Canna Blog

Colorado Prefers Sativa: Where to find the most popular weed strains

Despite the plethora of marijuana strains Colorado cannabis consumers have to choose from, more often than not, they reach for the Sativa varieties. According to a recent report in Business Insider, the most popular marijuana strains in Colorado are sativas or sativa dominant hybrids. The report was based on an analysis of point-of-sale data provided by a large sampling of Colorado marijuana dispensaries. The three strains named in the report as the most popular marijuana strains in Colorado are all sativa-dominant: Blue Dream, Durban Poison, and Bruce Banner #3. If you're wondering where to find Blue Dream in Denver, or where to find Durban Poison in Denver or the famed Bruce Banner #3, read on. We’ve also included information on the effects, genetics, and origins of these top 3 marijuana strains to shed some light on what makes these particular buds the most popular weed strains in Colorado.

Blue Dream

Blue Dream is the #1 Most Popular Strain in Colorado. It's easy to find Blue Dream in Denver as many marijuana dispensaries keep it in stock. A cross between Haze, a powerful sativa, and Blueberry, a fragrant and potent indica, blue dream originated in California, where it remains a popular strain. Blue Dream produces a relaxed and joyful high without causing drowsiness, and it tastes and smells like blueberries. It tests at anywhere from 17% to 24% THC, so it's a pretty reliable strain that seldom disappoints. Denver isn’t the only place where Blue Dream is “highly” popular, either. Blue Dream is also the most popular marijuana strain in Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, Phoenix, and several other cities where medical and/or recreational weed is legal. You can find Blue Dream in Denver at many medical and recreational dispensaries including Livwell and The Green Solution Northglenn. These stores often offer marijuana coupons for blue dream deals and other dispensary deals and weed discounts on CannaSaver.

Durban Poison

The second most popular marijuana strain in Colorado is Durban Poison. Originating in Africa, Durban Poison is a pure sativa that tests at 16% to 25% THC. It has a sweet, earthy taste and smell. Unlike indica that can slow you down and give you that heavy, sleepy feeling, Durban Poison is almost energizing in its effects. With thick, chunky buds that are coated in sparkling trichomes, Durban Poison is a popular marijuana strain throughout Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and pretty much everywhere else that it's available. You can find Durban Poison in Denver at Life Flower Dispensary or pick up some Durban Poison clones at Karmaceuticals.

Bruce Banner #3

Coming in at #3 is, coincidentally, bruce banner #3. One of three variations of the popular Bruce Banner strain, Bruce Banner #3 is a cross between OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel. It was created by Delta 9 labs. A popular marijuana strain in Colorado, Michigan, Oregon, and Washington, Bruce Banner #3 is famed for its quick-acting euphoric and calming effects. It has a spicy, earthy, and citrusy flavor and smell. Bruce Banner #3 is considered to be the strongest and best of the Bruce Banner phenotypes. You can find  Bruce Banner #3 in Colorado at Native Roots dispensary , Buddy Boy Brands dispensary and other marijuana dispensaries in Denver, Boulder, and elsewhere in Colorado.

Why Colorado Chooses Sativa

With all the opportunities for outdoor adventure, nightlife, and other fun things to do, Colorado is one of the most active states in the country. We might smoke a lot of weed here, but Colorado marijuana lovers shatter the stereotype of the lazy, couch-bound stoner. We like to get high, and we also like to get out and do stuff. In Colorado, smoking weed and having adventures go hand in hand. There are mountains to climb, trails to hike, hills to sled, and marijuana activities and 420 tours abound. Exhilarating and energetic in their effects, sativas and sativa dominant marijuana strains are the perfect complement to the active Colorado lifestyle.

The Volcano-Hybrid Blew Our Freakin' Minds

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 23 March 2022 in Wacky Racky

Honestly, I don't know if Storz & Bickel are Genies or Geniuses. Maybe they are aliens from a parallel universe? Those lizard-people we hear conspiracy theorists whisper loudly about? What is clear, is that they are not of this world.

Pros:

  • Taste
  • Ease of use
  • Bag or Whip/Hookah smoke options
  • Odor
  • Quiet-ish

Cons:

  • Price
  • Portability

I don't even know where to start with this review. Nothing about this machine makes sense to me. How is every bag filled with vapor so consistently full of flavor? How can it be so smooth yet hits like you should be coughing up a lung?

After many weeks of testing I am still mind-blown. How many bags can this unit fill before the weed is spent? How do you tell when it's spent? When the effects are no longer hitting that hard? Most units it's when the weed starts tasting like burnt popcorn, which I have yet to experience that taste, even by bag #5.

 

What I can tell you is most of the YouTube Videos out there are showing you the wrong way to use your Volcano Hybrid. Even the Storz & Bickel manuals could use clearer words and graphics, but their customer support department kindly helped me find the right instructions online when I reached out. 

After you fill your herb chamber, screw it back onto the Volcano. Start preheating until the desired temp is reached. Wait about 5 seconds, attach the balloon bag, and hit Air. Fill the bag to the desired amount, then turn off the Air. Unscrew the fill chamber with the bag still attached. Remove the bag from the chamber and insert the mouthpiece. Then sit back and enjoy.

In the manual it says if you have lung disease, don't use this machine. For legal reasons, I understand why. I can tell you as a COPD patient, sometimes you just have to smoke to get relief nowadays. Sometimes we cannot wait 20 minutes for a tincture to kick in. On bad breathing days, one's anxiety can climb, even extremely high. If a full-on panic attack hits, your breathing gets even worse, and you want to prevent that from happening. In about 2 minutes you can do just that, with the Volcano Hybrid.

I would actually describe this unit as "medical grade" and absolutely perfect for people with lung conditions that still need to smoke for whatever reason. These people should already be aware their doctors would prefer them not to smoke, but if you are stubborn like me, wouldn't it be wiser to instruct patients about tools available to make that smoking more comfortable?

The vaporizer creates a vapor that is room-temperature and smooth. It is fairly easy on the lungs unless you are a guy who still wants to show he can take big hits (then you might end up coughing yourself silly). I take little tiny hits. I mean really tiny hits. One bag gives me 30 at that rate. For my adult son it's five or six hits. Hubby, seven or eight. 

 

Readers will laugh but I was curious what would happen if you used the bag system to inhale through the nose. No, please don't envision me shoving the mouthpiece up a dirty nostril. I mean, using the bag to gently push the vapors out, while inhaling nasally. Yes, some vapor escapes, so it isn’t the same experience as inhaling orally. But regardless of what some might think this method actually works. I didn't experience any nasal or sinus irritation, no coughing or sneezing either. But did I feel the effects of the medicine? You betcha biscuit I sure did! 

But what would possess me to try such a thing? Curiosity. While edibles are great for people that can’t or don't want to smoke, they’re difficult to predict and not always potent enough to feel. I often wondered if you could use the Volcano Hybrid bag system to directly blow vapor in one’s face, to indirectly medicate like you might while hotboxing, or ‘shotgunning’ the puff. Surely it’s not the best/most effective way to use the Volcano but it does work. However, a facemask attachment to the bag system would be awesome for people who need assistance in partaking. See? There is a method to my madness *sometimes*. 

The bags are extremely durable too. I have been using the same one since it arrived. They also seem impossible to pop, even when left to overfill. 

The price is on the high side, but consider the age-old adage correct in this case: you do get what you pay for. If you have to save for it, do it--you won't regret it.

Like most well thought-out products, I am always a little disappointed with packaging. I would love to see items like the Volcano delivered in a reusable carrying case rather than a disposable box. I mean, this is a cool product that would be great for parties (well, pre-covid) so an equally fabulous case with all kinds of branding would be functional and commercial. But that’s just me.

The only way I could really see this unit improving--beside facemask attachment--would be some sort of attachable chamber for ice or water. This probably wouldn't be good for the bag system as that could possibly be a moisture nightmare and potential health/mildew issue? It’s not a perfect idea; the Volcano’s vapor isn't hot to begin with, but maybe a chamber could make the vapor cooler, even frosty, if used with the Hookah tube attachment? 

Despite some confusing instructions starting out, this unit really is so easy a beginner can use it. Maybe it's the German engineering, but Storz & Bickel are so far above the competition, that giving this my Seal of Approval almost seems lame. So I've revamped my rating system: from now on, it's bronze, silver or gold. A vape on its own echelon, the first product to set that gold bar is, hands down, the Volcano Hybrid.

Colorado Pot Featured In High Times “Strongest Strains on Earth”

ChemDog with 32.13% THC, is an indica entered by Next Harvest. High Times states that the Chem has achieved what most people thought impossible with it’s level of potency - which begs the question: How potent can a flower go in terms of producing psychoactive THC?

The Brotherhood came in second with 27.65% THC and is also an indica. It was entered by Animas Herbal Wellness Center. It’s our understanding that it’s propagated from seed and her lineage stacks up like this: (Willie’s Wonder x Grape Krush) x (Bubba ’91 x The White).

Sour Kush 60/40 with 26% THC, a hybrid came in number three. It was entered by Black Dog LED. Next is Lemon OG Haze with 26.14% THC. It’s a sativa entered by Ethos Seed Company. Ghost Train Haze was next with 27.46% THC, sativa, entered by Greenman Cannabis in Denver with the review noting, it’s a Rare Dankness–bred strain dipped slightly.

The strongest CBD strains were tested by three different labs across four separate competitions. Coming in at number 5 out of the top six CBD strains is Colorado's The White entered by Green Grass Central City, expressing 16.57% CBD with 0.67% THC. The sixth strongest CBD strain AC/DC entered by Emerald Triangle Genetics came in expressing 15.4% CBD with 0.8% THC.

The top CBD strain, Cannatonic, entered by IDK Farms topped out at an amazing 20.8% CBD with 0.8% THC. The second highest strain was CBD OG entered by C.R.A.F.T. expressing 19.5% CBD with a fairly high level of THC reaching 9.01%.

Perkins Cut Cannatonic entered by Mota Rebel Genetics expressed 18.8% CBD and 0.7% THC and was listed as the third highest. The fourth on the list was CBDee's #1B entered by Pure West Compassion Club with Light Sky Farms. It expressed a CBD level of 18.6% with THC at 0.7%.

In 2013, Bruce Banner came in number 3 at the Denver Cannabis Cup with a high of 28.35% THC. In 2015 a well known LA dispensary by the name of Greenwolf, took home the Denver Cup for their entry, Emperor Cookie Dough. This is not your ordinary cookie dough though. This stuff has a walloping 31.1% THC. Denver's own Next Harvest, wasn't about to be stirred. Their entry of ChemDog Cut surpassed the 32% mark setting the bar high with a new all-time record of 32.13% THC.

These are impressive levels and from the looks of it, the USA is producing a more power packed marijuana plant than that of our tokking friends in Jamaica.

The top of the list of six only reaches 17.8% THC submitted by St. Best Ganja Growers apparently going by a self titled name. The entry was submitted by Kevin Samuels and the strain is called Kevies Skunk. Second on the list of entries from Jamaica is True OG entered by Kingston Skinny with a 17.4% THC level followed by Power Nap entered by Sunspice with a level of 16.8% THC.

Next in the lineup is Gummy Berry 2 entered by Bongo Mannie. It's an indica flower grown outdoors with 16.6% THC. Following GB2 is Orange Hill Ebola entered by Juna Johnson. OHE is an outdoor grown indica with a 15.8% THC level. Wrapping it up at number six is M.G. Express - G.O.E.Original, coming again from St. Best Ganja Growers this time submitted by Glendon Elcis. This flower is an outdoor grown sativa leveling out at 15.4% THC and by the hyphenated name and initials G and E in the title, one must guess Glendon Elcis had a little influence.

Marijuana Strains Born in Colorado

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 03 January 2017 in Canna Blog

Marijuana Strains Originating in Colorado

With all the marijuana strains available at Colorado dispensaries, curiosity regarding weed genetics and origins is bound to kick in sooner or later. You can find marijuana strains from all over the world here, as well as a few really good strains from Colorado that have become world-famous. Some of the better known marijuana strains originating in Colorado include Colorado Cough (also known as Fort Collins Cough), G-6 also known as Jet Fuel, Aspen OG, and High Country Diesel. These strains have provided the genetics for many of the popular newer strains you see in dispensaries today.

Read on to learn more about these acclaimed marijuana strains that originated in Colorado.

Colorado Cough Genetics and Origins

Colorado Cough is a strain originating in Colorado in the 1990s. This strain was first grown in Colorado by two students from Colorado State University in Fort Collins who had the brilliant idea of crossing a Northern Lights #5 with a Haze #17. The result is a powerful sativa head high with an equally relaxing effect on the body. It has a very earthy scent and a bit of an odd flavor, almost like it has a hint of old orange peels. It’s definitely not the tastiest of buds, but the long-lasting high more than makes up for what it lacks in flavor.

G-6 Jet Fuel Strain Genetics and Origins

G-6, also known as Jet Fuel, is a strain that first originated in Colorado. This Colorado sativa dominant hybrid strain was developed by Denver-based 303 Seeds from Aspen OG and High Country Diesel, two other strains originating in Colorado. The genetic lineage of G-6 includes original Diesel, East coast Sour Diesel, G-13 Haze, and SFV OG Kush (San Fernando Valley OG Kush). It has a piney flavor with hints of diesel. The high you’ll get from G-6 is very uplifting and lighthearted, so it’s great after a long day or whenever you need a pick-me-up.

Colorado Strain Aspen OG Genetics and Origins

Aspen OG is another strain developed in Colorado by 303 Seeds. It’s a cross between SFV OG Kush and Sour Cream. Coated in crystals, this bud looks almost frosty. It has an earthy yet sweet flavor that’s reminiscent of forests and berries. A hybrid, Aspen OG provides a happy high that may also leave you with a serious case of the munchies.

High Country Diesel Strain Genetics and Origins

High Country Diesel is another of the widely acclaimed hybrid strains originating from Colorado. A cross between Loompa’s Underdog a.k.a. Headband and East Coast Sour Diesel, High Country Diesel has impressive genetics. Loompa’s Underdog is a cross between Amherst Super Skunk and Chemdog, while East Coast Sour Diesel is a powerful sativa with energizing and euphoric effects. This makes High Country Diesel a great hybrid strain for those seeking an undeniable high that’s long lasting without rendering you completely immobile.

How to find Colorado Marijuana Strains Near You

This is just a sampling of the many marijuana strains originating in Colorado. There are sativas, indicas, and hybrid strains first grown in Colorado that are now famous across the country.

Blue Dream is the Best!

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 16 January 2017 in Canna Blog

Blue Dream Strain Review, Genetics, and Origins

With so many different varieties of marijuana available, those strains that stand out and become widely known must really be something special--or at least, especially prominent. One such strain that has maintained its popularity for many years now is Blue Dream, a strain with genetics and origins that don’t seem too wildly different from other modern cannabis strains, but that has garnered thousands of rave reviews nonetheless. Part of the popularity of Blue Dream is due to the fact that this strain provides a well-balanced, all-around good high.

Blue Dream Strain Genetics

Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant hybrid that brings about 20% indica together with 80% sativa genetics. The strain results from the pairing of a sativa Haze, and Blueberry, which is an indica. Blue Dream tests at about 17-18% THC on average. If you want to grow Blue Dream, you’ll need to get a clone or a cutting, as you can’t cultivate it from seeds. Luckily, finding Blue Dream clones is no problem, as they are readily available in cities like Denver or Los Angeles, and the cost is typically very reasonable, often as low as $5 to $10 per clone.

Strain Origins - Where was Blue Dream First Grown?

If you want to know the origins and history of Blue Dream, just look west to the coast. Like so many other top weed strains, Blue Dream first emerged in the golden state of California, in the Santa Cruz area medical marijuana scene well over a decade ago. It became a big hit with medical marijuana patients who benefit from the pain-relieving, muscle-relaxing, anxiety-reducing effects of this strain.

Where to Buy Blue Dream in Denver

Blue Dream is available at many dispensaries in Denver. Some of the more popular dispensaries that have it are Medicine Man Aurora, Livwell Stapleton, and The Joint by Cannabis Dispensary.

Blue Dream Strain Review - Is it really that good?

While Blue Dream isn’t the most potent strain, it’s a very enjoyable and lasting high. The sativa qualities give you a positive, relaxed, and light feeling, while the genetic heritage of the Blueberry contributes a delicious smell and flavor that truly is very reminiscent of blueberries.  The flavor, the smell, the bluish color of the bud itself--it’s hard to beat Blue Dream for a good, enjoyable high with quality you can count on.

One thing that’s hugely different about today’s modern cannabis culture compared to what it was like a decade or two ago is the vast array of marijuana strains that are now available. With countless growing operations large and small, and so many vying to produce the latest, greatest bud, there is pretty much a constant flow of marijuana strains that keep getting better and better. The history of cannabis cultivation is changing before our eyes. Whether you’re a grower or a stoner, this is our collective marijuana heritage. Whether it’s Blue Dream, Girl Scout Cookies, Sour Diesel, or Bubba Kush, learning about the history, genetics and origins of different marijuana strains can give you a greater appreciation for that wonderful, wonderful herb.

Og Kush Strain Info

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 28 January 2017 in Canna Blog

OG Kush Genetics History and Strain Review

OG Kush is a very popular marijuana strain that has played a role in the creation of countless other hybrid strains that modern stoners enjoy. The genetic history and origins of OG Kush aren't entirely certain, but parts of the various origin stories seem to have a ring of truth. There is also much that can be ascertained about OG Kush through scientific analysis in the laboratory, and even more that can be learned through direct experience of its effects on the mind and body. Here's what we know about the strain genetics, origins, and effects of OG Kush.

OG Kush Strain Origins

While there are several different variations of the legend, many of the stories surrounding the origins of the OG Kush strain involve a seed found in a bag of otherwise seedless buds obtained at a Grateful Dead show sometime in the 1990s. Some say that seed was grown into Chemdog, which was at some point crossed with an unknown Kush (possibly a Lemon Thai Kush/Pakistani Kush hybrid to produce the OG Kush strain. Most accounts of the history of OG Kush say that the strain first emerged in California.

Chemical makeup of OG Kush

Laboratory analysis of OG Kush has identified the primary terpenes in OG Kush to be myrcene and limonene, with caryophyllene and pinene also predominant. The myrcene gives OG Kush the heavy, stony qualities of an indica while the pinene and limonene provide a joyful, energetic type of buzz. The caryophyllene is reputed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant properties.

OG Kush Strain Review

OG Kush is a hybrid strain that has the powerful, long-lasting effects of an indica as well as some of the finer nuances of a sativa. The buds are a vivid lime green accented with fiery orange hairs and sparkling crystals. OG Kush has a lemony yet earthy scent, and the buds are dense and sticky. It has a very robust and complex flavor when smoked, woody yet citrusy. The high is very satisfying, deeply relaxing while at the same time bringing on a cheerful mood that encourages fun and adventure.

Where to Buy OG Kush in Denver

You can buy OG Kush at many Denver dispensaries. The OG Kush strain can be purchased at recreational dispensaries as well as at medical marijuana dispensaries, so whether or not you have a med card you’ll be able to buy OG Kush in Denver. The Joint by Cannabis, DEN-REC, and DANK dispensary are among the dispensaries where you can often find OG Kush. You can get coupons for these and other dispensaries in Denver and many more cities on CannaSaver. CannaSaver has free printable coupons for weed and other dispensary deals in your area, and you can also find contact information for dispensaries in Denver, LA dispensaries, San Diego dispensaries, and other popular marijuana friendly cities. If you're looking for a particular strain and you won't be satisfied with a substitute, it's a good idea to call ahead to make sure the strain you are after is in stock. Popular strains like OG Kush sell out the fastest, so consider stocking up when you find it.

Jet Vaporizer From Subtle Escape Review

Cannabis legislature continues to take shape from California to New York and down to Florida, and even into Puerto Rico where Medical Marijuana was recently made legal.  As more and more states legalize the herb, patients and recreational users are finding better ways to consume the “drug”.  Vaping is currently the trendiest way to consume cannabis because it is discreet, (virtually no smell) and because vaping is viewed as healthy compared to traditional combustion methods. 

 When users vape cannabis, the cannabis is typically in an oil form.  The oil has been extracted from the raw plant material using a hydrocarbon like Butane, or liquid Carbon Dioxide.  Once the raw oil has been extracted, it must go through a refinement process to get the oil to the proper viscosity.  Once, the oil has been refined, it is put into a cartridge or a Tank which is then screwed into a battery.  From there, the user can simply push a button and the oil is heated to a point where it begins to vaporize as the user inhales. 

 There are lots of vapes to choose from, but one of our favorites is the Jet Vaporizer Pen by Subtle Escape.  It's the first mobile, compact, powerful, all-purpose, reusable Jet vapor diffuser to hit the market and has no buttons to push.  The Jet is draw activated, which means the user only needs to inhale and the battery activates.  The battery heats the oil up to the proper temperature for a smooth, clean hit each time.  The battery is small but extremely powerful and provides a huge hit for the user, if they are looking for that! 

 The Jet vape pen also lasts a long time on a full charge.  So no need to worry about it running out of batteries while you are out and about.  A full battery will last about 40-80 puffs depending on individual use. 

 Another cool innovation from Subtle Escpape is the slider case called The Flight, with built-in power bank that keeps 2 Jets charged on the go for weeks at a time.  The Flight is a unique carrying case that includes docking station that can hold and charge two Jet batteries at once.  The Flight comes with an LED battery percentage display as well as a micro USB port for charging. 

 The Jet & Flight are full vaporizing systems that are extremely durable and are sure to exceed customer expectations.  These awesome products can be purchased at select locations in the Denver metro area and be sure to check out subtleescape.com for a complete list of retailers carrying these products and offering coupons on CannaSaver.  Vaping cannabis oil is not only better for your lungs, but it won’t get you completely zonked out like smoking a joint or hitting a bong.  It provides for a much clearer head and won’t leave you tired and sleepy.  The Jet by Subtle Escape is the perfect vaporizer for the sophisticated stoner who cares how he smokes, since he is the most interesting stoner in the world.
