W Vapes – Premium CO2 Oil Cartridge Review
When W Vapes said “Premium Cannabis Oil” they weren’t kidding. W Vapes is gaining a lot of accolades, having won multiple awards, including Best Sativa Concentrate at the 2015 Green Games in San Diego. We were lucky enough to get our hands on some W Vapes cartridges pre-filled with 500 mg of their premium, CO2 extracted cannabis oil in Sour Diesel and Cotton Candy.
Not only are these cannabis oils impressive, so is the cartridge design. Each cartridge features a stylish silver mouthpiece tip engraved with the “W” branding. These metal tips feel great against your lips and will last much longer than their cheap, plastic counterparts used by other brands. These cartridges also feature a central pole that runs through the center of the oil chamber, allowing increased air flow for smoother and fuller hits. As with all of their cartridges, these are 510 threaded to fit universal sized vape pens.
Vape Pen Batteries
We tested these cartridges out of two separate W Vape batteries: the 280 mAh battery and the 350 mAh push button battery. Both batteries include USB port chargers and came pre-charged, ready for use right out the box. We prefer the push button battery for a few reasons: the weight feels sturdier in your hand, the button lights up, we could turn it off and on to save battery, and with the button allows better control over each pull.
Taste & Effects
We have tried a lot of cartridges in our day, and we can honestly say this was one of the best in terms of taste and quality. The hits are smooth and the effects can be felt within minutes. We got a little drowsy after about 15 minutes which is not typically associated with sativa strains (Sour Diesel), but we did have a long night, so we could have tired already. The Cotton Candy vape had a sweet, fruity flavor, but didn’t taste like real cotton candy as you might expect.
