Vape refers to a device that heats a liquid wherein the product vapor is inhaled. In cannabis, vapes are used to consume cannabinoids and terpenes through the process of vaporization. All vapes are comprised of an atomizer, a power source like a battery, and a cartridge or tank.
Vaping cannabis can activate more terpenes and minor cannabinoids present in flowers than smoking, which can burn off many of them. A device with precise temperature settings allows you to select a temperature appropriate for the cannabis or terpene you want to experience.
