How to choose the best weed vape: Indica vs Sativa vs Hybrid, and other important features to look for

Weed consumption has come a long way with many different options available. Consumers are looking for the best option they have, and finding the best weed vape has become one of these quests. With a variety of choices, from strain types to hardware, the decision-making process can be both thrilling and overwhelming. In this article, we will guide you through this maze, exploring the nuances of indica, sativa, and hybrid strains, flavour profiles, hardware considerations, and some other out-of-the-box things you should look for when choosing the best weed vape for you.

Understanding strain types: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid

Choosing the right strain type is fundamental to tailoring your weed experience. Indica strains are known for their relaxing and sedative effects, making them ideal for evening use to sit back and relax. Sativa strains, on the other hand, offer an energetic and uplifting experience, perfect for going dancing or going out. Hybrids combine the elements of both, providing a balanced effect that can cater to a variety of preferences like doing yoga, reading a book, or unleashing your creativity. 

At Zyre, we’ve taken these 3 strains and curated a selection of 3 distinct vapes, each crafted with precision to enhance a specific experience. Our Launch 1.0 is Pineapple Punch flavoured and a Sativa strain, and pairs well with activities where you want a burst of energy, while our Recline 1.0 is Blueberry flavoured and an Indica strain, ensuring a relaxing experience, almost like a sleepy state. Recline 1.0 is also our top-selling full-spectrum vape in BC – not surprising considering BC folks have a beautiful environment in which relaxation is prioritized! For those seeking a harmonious blend, our Spotlight 1.0, which is Wild Strawberry flavoured, is our hybrid strain, offering the best of both worlds. 

4 other things to consider beyond strain type when choosing the best weed vape:

1. Full spectrum vs distillate

“Full spectrum” refers to a cannabis product that contains a wide range of natural compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds include cannabinoids (like THC and CBD), terpenes, and other elements. The term “full spectrum” highlights that a product is not just focused on one or two specific compounds, but rather aims to preserve the entire array of naturally occurring substances in the plant. This diversity of compounds working together creates an enhanced and more well-rounded effect, known as the “entourage effect”. It provides a more complete and authentic experience. 

Choosing full spectrum weed vapes over distillate offers a more holistic and authentic weed experience. While distillates are known for their high potency due to the extraction of THC, they often lack the diverse range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other elements found in the original plant.

This is why Zyre is committed to creating a well-rounded experience for our consumers, with our flavoured cured resin vapes that are a proprietary blend of terpene sauce, distillate and botanical terpenes precisely formulated for the full-spectrum vibe along with a smooth fruit-flavoured experience.

2. Explore flavour profiles

Beyond the effects, the flavour profile of your weed vape plays a crucial role in the overall enjoyment of your experience. Trust your taste buds. If it tastes bad, you might be picking up on chemicals or bad hardware mixing with your vape oil, bringing out a bad taste. 

Zyre vapes are custom-batch fruit flavours, coming up with unique formulae for each SKU to make sure the underlying strain’s distinct cannabinoid and terpene profiles are maintained for the entourage effect, but at the same time making sure the fruit flavours are shone through: Launch 1.0 – Pineapple Punch, Recline 1.0 – Blueberry Pie, and Spotlight 1.0 – Wild Strawberry. 

3. Select quality hardware

Selecting the right hardware of good quality is another important factor when it comes to choosing the best vape. Ceramic vapes allow the temperature to be stable which helps preserve the terpenes and cannabinoids. Unlike metal vapes, ceramic does not react with the acids found in cannabis, keeping the oil pure and your experience smoother. Metal vapes, on the other hand, can leach and taste metallic. 

Zyre has invested extra in curating quality hardware with our all-ceramic vape, ensuring ultra-smooth draws that elevate the vaping experience. The sleek and stylish design of our vapes reflects our dedication to both form and function. 

4. Support brands that stand for something important

Every brand has a story and at Zyre, our story is as captivating as our products. We proudly stand as a woman-owned cannabis company, emphasizing diversity and empowerment in the cannabis industry. Our vape was made by a woman who couldn’t find products in the market that were full-spectrum, tasted great and easy on the throat, so she decided to make her own!

Our founder, Audrey Wong, is a strong advocate for women in cannabis. Her journey in building Zyre is motivated by her being one of the few women in the industry, and wanting to change the the narrative. As we approach International Women’s Day, our message this year is to support women in cannabis more than once a year. While Zyre is a woman-owned full spectrum vape brand that you can support more than once this year, look out for other woman-owned brands that speak to you and your beliefs, and support them too (more than once a year). 

We need more women in cannabis to make more products catered to women. Diversity is not just a buzzword, but something that helps people feel more included, seen, and motivated to grow in an industry.
