O.penVAPE RESERVE Review

O.penVAPE RESERVE Review

As far as cannabis is concerned, I am a snobby, outspoken, flower enthusiast. If you grant me the option of cannabis flower or one of its many derivatives, I’ll yell “take me to the source!” My old-school sentiments do not, however, preclude me from occasionally trying one of the many cannabis derivatives that grace today’s modern cannabis society, which brings me to the O.penVAPE RESERVE Cartridge.

At first glance, the O.penVAPE RESERVE looks like any other O.penVAPE vaporizer. The new device is the same sleek, discreet, black vape pen that O.penVAPE helped to develop as the standard for basic cannabis vaporizers.

So what makes the O.penVAPE RESERVE Cartridge stand out from the crowd? Until very recently, most of O.penVAPE’s vaporizer pens used cannabis concentrate cartridges that included polyethylene glycol, a common vape product additive which helps to maintain a physical state conducive to vaporizing. In recent years, however, there has been controversy regarding the safety of additive inhalation; and so began the race to find an alternative. The O.penVAPE RESERVE line did away with polyethylene glycol entirely to create a pure cannabis oil cartridge for the choosy cannoisseur.

Unlike many vaporizers currently on the market, the O.penVAPE RESERVE uses cannabis concentrate cartridges that purely consist of cannabis oil. As I mentioned above, the vaporizer maintains the same look, feel, and usability that consumers have come to expect from O.penVAPE products. The pen is still easy to assemble with only two components – the cartridge and battery – which screw into each other. A third, USB component can be screwed into the battery when the device must be recharged.

Once charged, the O.penVAPE RESERVE is incredibly easy to use as there are no buttons to push, and a light at the bottom of the pen signals when the pen is in use, overheats, or needs to be recharged. The O.penVAPE RESERVE has maintained its discreet form (my favorite feature), which allows both patients and recreational users to consume at times and places they may not otherwise be able.

The most noticeable difference in appearance is how much thicker and darker the concentrate in the RESERVE cartridge is without any additives. For me, this is reassuring in that it is looks as I’ve come to expect cannabis concentrates to appear.

Drawing on the O.penVAPE RESERVE requires just a little more strength than the original, given the thicker concentrate, but the RESERVE product rewards you for your extra effort by smoking more like a load-your-own vaporizer or even an actual dab. The pure concentrate has a clean oil flavor that lets the terpenes shine through. The O.penVAPE RESERVE also offers a more robust smoke that the consumer will definitely feel accompanied by an oddly satisfying increase in the amount of smoke exhaled. If you are a seasoned smoker, you probably prefer to feel each drag and subsequent exhale without feeling like you’re inhaling unnecessary chemicals. On these marks, O.penVAPE RESERVE delivers.

For this review, I sampled the Aspen OG 420 mg (420, nice) RESERVE cartridge, which is a sativa concentrate on the sweeter, robust side; O.penVAPE RESERVE also offers other sativa, hybrid, and indica concentrate cartridges that are strain specific, so there is something for all different types of consumers. In this case, the Aspen OG gave me a moderately uplifting high that effectively amounted to an afternoon pick-me-up and was accompanied by physical sensations in my head and chest. I never felt like I was zoned out or ultra focused, but I was definitely high and energized from just a couple tokes.

Overall, I would say the Aspen OG cartridge stoned me without rendering me dysfunctional, which is perhaps the perfect combination for a product that is often used in situations where discretion is necessary. More importantly, I felt good about using the O.penVAPE RESERVE because I knew I was consuming pure cannabis oil. I would highly recommend the O.penVAPE RESERVE products to individuals who currently vaporize but are looking for something cleaner and with a more pronounced smoking experience. I would also encourage those who need to be discreet in their cannabis consumption to check out the O.penVAPE RESERVE as, in my opinion, it is the perfect compliment to the clandestine cannoisseur’s paraphernalia collection.

Jetty Extracts Silver Haze Cartridge Review

Jetty Extracts Silver Haze Cartridge Review

When purchasing any cannabis product, I like to remind myself that there’s power in choosing which products to buy and, by proxy, which ideals you’d like to support. Occasionally, you’ll find a company whose passion for their product extends to all aspects of their business, and Jetty Extracts is a perfect example of such a company. Even if I ended up disliking their product, I would feel good about giving them my money (more on that later).

But I am indeed a fan now that I know Jetty delivered on every one of their claims. My half-gram cartridge of cannabis concentrate came in packaging made from recycled materials and was clearly labeled with the strain name — Silver Haze. The cartridge was filled with a cool-toned brown concentrate that was liquid in texture but not runny. At $40 for a half gram of cannabis oil, this cartridge is on par with other premium cartridges.

Out of all the many cannabis strains on the market, Silver Haze is one of my personal favorites. To me, it has a complex, pungent campfire aroma of wood and sweet smoke. Silver Haze was bred from the original landrace Haze strain, and is categorized as a sativa. Being crossed with Northern Lights, a popular indica strain, makes Silver Haze a go-to for those seeking relief from pain and depression. If you’ve found sativas to be too overwhelming or racy in the past, but still want a strain that offers the uplifting, energizing effects typical of a sativa, Silver Haze may be a good choice. For those seeking immediate relief, this is a fast-acting strain.

I tested this cartridge while getting ready for the holidays, so I had a multitude of items on my to-do list that required both physical and mental tasks, which didn’t leave a lot of time for medicating. Silver Haze works quickly, and Jetty made a cartridge with little to no drag, allowing me to medicate and get on with it. The first draw right out of the package can be a bit harsh, but this was perfectly smooth. After the first puff, I realized that this was a cartridge I’d like to spend time tasting and experiencing. Within a few minutes I started to feel the cerebral relaxation, and suddenly my to-do list didn’t seem so long. I did all of my online Christmas shopping and decorated my house without the anxiety I often feel during the holidays.

Now it was time to kick back and relax, and this Jetty Extracts cartridge was a great product for that. Short pulls, long pulls and frequent hits all tasted just as great as the first, with no burnt flavors or harsh hits. Since I was able to medicate more, I experienced a stronger body high, complete with floaty, weightless tingling in my arms and legs. The psychoactive effects were comfortable, allowing creative thoughts and a decent attention span while still being grounded in reality.

Buying cannabis oil cartridges in LA is still a journey. Most dispensaries only carry a few different brands of cartridges (if any), and only a couple of strains of each. This cartridge is definitely worth the search. In addition to buying a great product, I’m supporting a company that gives back to the community and continues to focus on research and development. Jetty donates one percent of their gross sales to cancer patients, including consultations for treatment plans and guidance in cultivating at home. Jetty also provides easy access to the independent test results of their products, which is a level of transparency that sets them apart from the competition.

Even without all of the good-will qualities, Jetty makes a top-notch product at a reasonable price, and I will be purchasing again.
