In my last portable vaporizer pen review on the O.Pen Vape, I predicted that it would be the last pen I would need for awhile. This prediction has so far been true; the O.Pen has remained a go-to source for portable sessions with virtually no mechanical issues, and changes in the O.Pen and marketing of the cartridges have actually made it even better.
As stated in my first review, the deal is that you get the actual device, a skinny and totally discreet pen with a smart phone/tablet stylus on the other end, for free when you buy two strain-specific cartridges. This remains true, though there are now only 250 mg ones available. The amount of pre-loaded strains continues to increase, which is very cool; in most cases, manufacturer Organa Labs seems to work with dispensaries to use some trim from their grows to keep new strains coming. While not every store seems to always have the strain specific cartridges in stock (mostly because they just sell out so quickly), the variety of cartridges available is certainly impressive.
In lieu of the larger strain-specific pre-filled tanks, syringes with specifically diluted oil are now available. These syringes comes with a needle that make it easy to just pop the plastic plug out of an empty cartridge and fill it back up. A “tank refill kit” has 700 mg of THC and can fill up 2.5 tanks. Retailing for around $50 ish (depending on where you get one), this is a good value that lasts a long time, and is certainly better then having to get a new tank every single time one runs low. The syringes come in indica, sativa, or hybrid, and while not strain-specific, are definitely accurate: the sativa has a more “up” kind of feeling while the indica is way sleepier.
These syringes can be used in ANY portable vaporizer pen that can be filled with hash oil, and I highly recommend using this over any other thicker oil. While many other vaporizer pens can be filled with “raw” hash oil that was created just for smoking or dabbing, often times it is too thick to smoke or draw properly. Because portable vaporizer pens are really designed for thinner oil (like nicotine oil found in most e-cigarettes), the thicker the oil, the worse the smoking experience will be. Because the Organa Lab Tank Refill Kit syringe is watered down with glycerin, it will be a much smoother and overall much better hit when you take your O.Pen, Atmos, or any other oil-based portable vaporizer pen with you.
