Wholesale Guide to Vapes

How Do Vapes Differ From Other Methods

If you are well-versed in cannabis industry trends, you know that vaping has become one of the most popular ways to consume it. Cannabis enthusiasts love how discreet, easy to use, and virtually odorless vaping devices are compared to traditional smoking methods. However, vaping is an umbrella term covering many products that use vapor instead of smoke. That's why it's essential to know precisely how vapes differ from other methods and their benefits when stocking your store. Luckily, our wholesale guide to vapes will explain everything you need to know when selling dry herb vapes, oil vape pens, disposable vapes, wax pens, and tabletop vapes to your customers!


Types of Vaporizers For Weed

When customers come into your store asking for a vape, they could be talking about many different products. Let's dive into what makes each vape type unique so you can help your customers find the perfect vape to fit their needs!


Dry Herb Vaporizer

Weed vape pens are different from other vaping devices because they are designed specifically for flower instead of a concentrated THC substance like oil or wax. For customers that prefer using the marijuana plant in its natural form but enjoy the convenience of an electronic device, dry herb vaporizers are an excellent option. Below, we will highlight the benefits that weed vapes provide over traditional smoking methods.


Weed Vape Pen Features and Benefits

If a customer wants to know more about dry herb vaporizers like the Ooze Drought, you should mention several vital benefits to score the sale. First, a weed vape pen is much better for the lungs than smoking. Instead of burning the flower, it uses flameless air heat technology to vaporize just the terpenes and cannabinoids. The inhalable vapor this creates is a smooth hit without being tainted by any carcinogens.

Another benefit of purchasing a dry herb vaporizer is that it only produces a slight odor easily covered up by lighting a candle, unlike the pungent scent a joint would produce. This means that dry herb vaporizers are portable if your customers have something simple like perfume or cologne to mask the smell.

Dry herb vapes are a lot more expensive than a hand pipe or a standard bong. High price point can deter customers from ever trying these devices out, but the Ooze Flare was designed with price-sensitive customers in mind. This is the ideal device to recommend to any customer looking for a dry herb vape under $100.

Dry Herb Vapes are also an excellent option for customers who like to savor their stash. Weed lasts much longer because weed vapes only require a tiny amount added to its chamber every few hits. Plus, this bud can be reused and made into edibles!


How to Use a Weed Vape Pen

If your customers want to know how to use a weed vape pen, they need to know it's vital to sterilize their pen before the first use. Then, simply add ground nugs of their favorite flower into the vape's chamber and allow it to reach an optimal temperature. The Ooze Drought even has a digital temp screen to show precisely when your customers should inhale.

It's also important to note that a dry herb vape cloud will not be thick like a regular puff of smoke. Instead, it will be an extremely potent mist. Finally, to maintain their weed vape pen, you can tell customers to wipe down their chamber with a resin wipe. This is an excellent upselling opportunity!


THC Oil Vape Pen

When customers ask for an oil pen, they are probably looking for a vape pen battery like the Ooze Slim Twist 2.0. These Vape pen batteries are used in tandem with an oil cartridge that your customers can get pre-filled with cannabis oil from the dispensary or fill themselves.

If you own a smoke shop or a convenience store, we recommend keeping several vape pen battery options in stock that your customers can choose from since they all provide unique features and benefits. As an owner of a dispensary, we suggest carrying both 510 vape pen batteries and 510 thread oil cartridges so your customers can have a wide variety based on their preferences.


Benefits of Cannabis Oil Pens

Cannabis oil pens are an excellent option for customers seeking a discreet, potent, and portable way to consume THC. These days, vape pens for thc oil look very similar to nicotine vapes, so they are the most discreet option for consuming cannabis in a public setting. They are also virtually odorless and do not stink up the 'joint' as one would.

THC extracts are also way more potent than smoking the plant itself. For example, flower contain a THC level between 10-25 %, while cannabis oil has around 50-80%. This makes it easy for consumers to vape a small amount of oil from their pen yet feel the effects instantly.

One of the best things about THC oil vape pens is that they are super portable. Customers love that they can put one in their pocket or purse as they run out the door. The Slim Twist 2.0 even has an extremely long battery life and safe sesh cycles, so your customers won't have to worry about it dying or turning on in their pocket while they're out on the town.


How to Use a Vape Pen With an Oil Cartridge

3 steps to attach a 510 oil cartridge to a THC oil battery.

Using a vape pen with a cartridge is easy, but your customers may ask you how to do it. First, they must understand that their vape pen battery and cartridge must be compatible. Most batteries and carts will be 510 threaded, meaning ten threads at 0.5 mm per thread. In layman's terms, they must purchase vape parts with the same connection points to ensure proper functionality.

To use their vape pen, they must screw on their oil cartridge, turn on their battery, and hit the pen by inhaling through the cartridge's mouthpiece. If their battery is not auto-drawing, they will want to press the button usually located on the front of the device while they inhale. The Slim Twist 2.0 can be used both ways for a hands-on or off vaping experience!


Refillable vs. Disposable Vape Pens

If a customer asks about the difference between refillable and disposable vape pens, there are a few key things to note. Disposable vape pens are an excellent option for customers looking for something that comes pre-charged and pre-filled. Once they have vaped the extracts inside, they can toss the vape out. On the other hand, a refillable and rechargeable vape pen is super versatile because customers can fill them with different extracts depending on their preferences. They are also a more sustainable option because they are reusable. Depending on your customers' preferred features, refillable and disposable vape pens are both great options to keep in stock!


Wax Pen for Dabs

For your customers that prefer dabs, a wax pen like the Ooze Fusion is an excellent investment for their on-the-go needs because they do not require a dab rig or a torch. This means your customers take a torchless, flavorful, and highly potent dabbing experience with them anywhere!

Many confuse vape pens for wax and vape pens for oil, but they are not the same because both devices vaporize two different thc materials. Unlike vapes for thc oil, wax vape pens have a coil and a wax chamber to load in concentrates.

However, both pen types can use the same battery with separate vape attachments. While oil vape pens require an oil cartridge attachment, wax pens can require a globe or wax atomizer attachment. If this is confusing to your customers, we recommend carrying wax vaporizer kits like the Ooze Fusion or Ooze Globe, which have everything they need to get started!


Wax Vape Pen Features and Benefits

Dab pens are a great alternative to dabbing out of a rig because they don't need a torch, butane, or a large dabbing surface. All your customers will need is a dab pen, a dabber, and their favorite wax. As a portable and easy-to-use alternative to a rig, setting up a display of wax pen kits in your smoke shop or convenience store makes total sense!

Another key benefit is that wax vape pens significantly reduce the chance of inhaling carcinogens associated with butane torches. By switching to a vape pen for concentrates, your customers will notice a smoother and more flavorful hit!


Tabletop Vapes

Tabletop vapes are for serious vapors who want to make a significant investment in an advanced vaping device. Desktop vaporizers represent the absolute cream of the crop because they can handle the most product while supporting the most intense vaping session. However, they can usually cost a pretty penny. Below, we will discuss the pros and cons of a tabletop vape dry herb device so you can help your customers with this large sale opportunity!


Pros and Cons of Tabletop Vapes

Tabletop vapes provide an elevated vape session and can actually save your customers money in the long run on their stash. This is because desktop vaporizers use weed more efficiently since your customers can get more vapor from the same amount of bud as their portable counterparts. Plus, a tabletop also has a system to cool down the vapor before you take a hit. So whether it's a balloon vaporizer or contains a water filtration element, your customers can inhale it deeply. They are also more durable and can be used for a long time if appropriately managed.

However, your customers could worry about some cons to desktop vaporizers, starting with the initial cost. Desktop vaporizers are pricey and generally cost anywhere from 200- 600 bucks. Another issue is that this vape usually requires an energy source, so it's not a portable or super discreet option.

If your customers are looking to vape in their home and aren't strapped for cash, a desktop vaporizer is a no-brainer choice to keep them high and happy!


What to Consider When Choosing Vapes For Your Store

Now that you know all about the different types of vaporizers, it's vital to find the right supplier. With so many sellers in the wholesale vape space, it's essential to consider several key factors when choosing your wholesaler.


Understand Your Customer's Preferences

Understand what brands and products your customers are looking to buy. For example, if you own a convenience store, your customers will most likely be in the market for a vape pen battery for maximum convenience. On the other hand, smoke shop shoppers might want to make a big purchase like a tabletop vape. By fully understanding your demographic and their needs, you can narrow your focus and look for vape products that make sense for your customers!


Discover Popular Vape Brands

Do your research to find the best vape brand. Look into what brands are most popular with your customer base and in the local area. Having products from the brands your customers ask for by name is key to making the sale.


Choose A Reputable Wholesale Vape Distributor

Before buying wholesale vape products from any online shop, compare prices from different sellers. Shopping around will help you identify which online wholesalers have the best pricing. We recommend finding a wholesale vape distributor like Cannatron with exclusive pricing on popular brands to maximize your profit margin while still getting the products your customers know and love!
