Vaping with the Trifecta

Trifecta Vaporizer

Trifecta Vaporizer

After having vaped with as many different vaporizers as I have over the years it takes a lot to make one stand out.  The Trifecta has been able to accomplish exactly that, using superior components and holding themselves to a higher standard they have separated themselves from the pack.  Some vaporizers like the AtmosRx or the Vaporite Budy Pen try to sneak by using less than ideal materials, Trifecta on the other hand only uses top of the line materials.

The Trifecta is slightly more expensive than other vaporizers but that cost is reflected in the quality of the unit.  Some of the things I like best about the Trifecta are the high quality lithium ion battery, its fast heat up time and the one button activator system.  This pen vape is also super easy to use and has basically zero learning curve.  Most other herbal pen vapes are unnecessarily complicated and make you press a million different buttons just to get started, this pen vape heats up on the first try every time.  The only other pen vape that is as easy to use as the Trifecta would probably have to be the Vaporite Emerald.  The VaporX XRT is another great pen to use when you are in a pinch, I don’t think the vapor production is as good as the Trifectas however.

When I first started vaping basically all I wanted to do was vape dry herbs, lately however I have been making the switch to concentrates.  The Trifecta can handle both so it is a real time saver not to mention it saves you the trouble of having two different pens.  Usually I would just pull out Sky High pen for vaping wax but since I made the switch to the Trifecta I don’t really use it anymore, the Trifecta just hits harder anyways.  The battery life is also pretty substantial, I can get just about a full weeks worth of use from one charge.  The Atmos Bullet-2-Go will give me about 4-5 days which is close but still not good enough for those long road trips.

I recently got back from Idaho and had a blast, since marijuana is now legal in Washington we stocked up before we set out on our hunting trip.  We went to Grangeville to look for some Elk since they were in season, we also did some fishing at a near by lake.  While we didn’t bag any deer or elk we did catch a few salmon so the trip was still a success.  The pen vape was perfect for fly fishing, we just stood in the river and puffed away in wilderness.  I think the salmon were actually attracted to the smell of the vapor, during the early hours of the day we were not getting any bites.  Around noon we fired up the vaporizer and all of the sudden we couldn’t keep them off of the pole.  I snagged a 14 pounder and a 10 pounder in about 30 minutes time and that was just two of the six fish we caught that day.

Best Vaporizer Pens for Dry Herb

When you’re shopping for a vape pen to use with dry herbs, there are three key factors you should consider as part of your decision-making process:

1. Temperature – For efficient vaporization, you never want to exceed 390 degrees Fahrenheit in a pen-style vaporizer. Most of the best pen vapes are calibrated to heat up between 375-395 degrees; these are the kinds of units you’ll find from brands such as White Rhino, Pulsar, and Grenco Science. While their vaporizers are definitely made in Chinese factories, they quality test those bad boys so you know you’re not going to exceed 400 degrees.

2. Heating Chamber – The ease of airflow through the heating chamber is a mitigating factor for vaporizer pens of any shape or size. While I like the look of the SkyCloud by KandyPens, the herb attachment is super skinny and doesn’t allow for much ganja to go in there. If you stuff it full, then you’re not getting any airflow; but if you allow for airflow, then you end up vaping all your bud with one inhale, making it a terrible option for group sessions.

3. Size – If you’re going to be using a pen vaporizer for herbs, then you’ll probably want to keep it discreet. This is where I find herb pens basically act as a glorified pipe. Not to say this is a bad thing, you’ve just got to know it going in. If you want something that’s going to fit snugly in your palm as you vape it, there’s probably going to be combustion happening. Sorry. That’s just the breaks. If you want something that doesn’t burn your herbs, I would suggest checking out the T-Vape which is a little larger than I’d like a “pen vaporizer” to be, but it’s not going to singe the shit out of your weed.

T-Vape – The “True” Vaporizer

Conclusion: The T-Vape is nice because it has a separator between the herbs and the heating coil, unlike many herb pen vaporizers out there, such as the Pulsar 7 or AtmosRx Vaporizer. The problem with the T-Vape is that it’s a lot bulkier than the thin, sleek herb pens. This is the tradeoff you will inevitably encounter: sacrifice size for performance or vice versa. For me, I don’t mind the burning so much. I just like to have something handy for concerts and picnics with my boyfriend. The T-Vape is cool, but it’s a really thick shaft and that kind of intimidates me. If you like a big vape with some power and girth, then the T-Vape is definitely for you.

Texas is Considering Legalizing Medical Marijuana

One of the most conservative states in the United States, Texas is looking into changing its laws and allow medical marijuana. A bill that would epilepsy patients to use cannabis a source of medicine has been introduced and is being considered by Texas lawmakers.

This new house bill would essentially legalize oils containing CBD, which has been known to treat epilepsy and other chronic medical conditions. This bill is known as the Compassionate Use Act, which states that children can be treated through marijuana and prevent them from having seizures and other symptoms of epilepsy.

After some compelling testimonies from children who suffer from epilepsy, the Texas lawmakers will make a determination on whether or not allow this bill to be passed. The lawmakers have expressed concerns about allowing the easy access any sort of marijuana-related products.

In my opinion, this sort of thinking is a bit short-sighted. If cannabis has been proven to prevent seizures or cure any sort of ailment. Marijuana use for medical purposes has already saved many lives and trying to prohibited, rather than regulated it, is in a way irresponsible.

Interestingly enough, last year the University of Texas conducted a poll among Texans on whether or not they would support legalization of marijuana to some degree. The results of this survey were overwhelmingly in favor of some form legalization. The exact number of Texans that supported some form legalization was around 77%.

After reading and watching some of the testimonies from children, I am convinced that this law should pass. The latest hearings offered some insight from Colorado residents who have already began using marijuana for medical purposes and have essentially provided testimonials on how medical marijuana has saved the lives of children in their state.

I think lawmakers are probably scared of upsetting big pharmaceutical companies who have already received permission to sell drugs on a federal level that prevent or treat epilepsy. Again, part of the problem that many pro-marijuana supporters have had to face in every state is the backlash from big money and big pharmaceutical companies.

In many ways corporations and the corporate establishment has to a degree, slowed down the progress of America. This is one of the many examples. Hopefully, Texas as the biggest state in the United States, and as one of the most economically-vibrant states, sets an example to the rest of America in the fight against marijuana prohibition.
