More info in previous post. I have to say, I really like this little device. While I’ve got some reservations about what’s actually inside the pods (no farms listed, different processors, different methods of extraction) the unit itself is quite advanced for the market and totally worth a shot for those that rely on cartridges. For one, the app which I expected to be gimmicky is actually worth using to fine-tune adjust the temperature or even lock the device. Handy if the slippery thing slides out of your pocket on Easter and a 4-year-old picks it up (check, this happened). Nice if you feel like swapping out the color palate of the blinky and surprisingly informative LEDs or indulge in one of the Simon-like games while you sit stoned waiting for the bus. It hits like a champ too, you can dial the temperature from 430 to 790 degrees Fahrenheit, so the tradeoff of flavor to vapor production is up to you. Even at temps around 525, I can still get enough vapor to blow decent “smoke” rings and occasionally catch a big enough hit to send me coughing. The Candyland Sauce cart I had was nice, tasty though not too complex, but loved the effect. This Tangie that I’m puffing on now is flavorful but not clementine juice running down your face flavorful, so keep in mind while there are some flavor improvements, we’re still a long way away from true flower flavor or a tasty lung-busting hit of live-resin. Though cost is relative, these things are considerably more than most cartridges. It’s a half gram at the price most full grams are being sold at. You’ll have to weigh if the added tokes due to temp adjustment and leak free design are worth the added cost. If you prize slick design and appreciate fiddle-free function then I think it’s worth throwing this into the rotation and seeing if it’s a good fit. I’ll definitely be checking the pods around town when I gear up for my next road trip. Keep in mind the unit is slick in more than one way, the device slipped out of my pocket again while I was writing this. You’ve been warned. – – – – – – – #🔊💯 #cannabis #cream #ommp #recreational #exoticgenetix #kush #bestinpdx #thc #cbd #weshouldsmoke #joints #dabs #vape #420ph

I could see the Pax Era coming from miles away. Pax started as “Ploom” a first era version that had little pods of ground up tobacco that you loaded into a device and vaped. Cute, but fidgety, the product was sold to a Japanese tobacco company after the Pax vape rolled out and outshone the Ploom. Now at this time, the Pax was being sold as a tobacco vaporizer, and a good way to curb tobacco use. We could see from the first models of the Ploom and the fact that this was being designed in cannabis-friendly California that this was all entrée into the cannabis field. Then the Juul launched and now it’s a deep Google search to find out if the Ploom ever even existed. The Juul promised viscous, flavored oil spiked with nicotine in easy to swap pods. The USB sized battery was discreet and easy to use and inevitable stoner ingenuity quickly provided instructions for loading the carts with whatever THC oils you could jam into the thing. I don’t typically enjoy nicotine but I snagged one of the units just to satisfy my curiosity. It was nice. Artificially flavored smoke rings of Creme Brulee and Virginia Tobacco surrounded me in my downtime. I ordered more flavors and got a little too comfortable with my increasing “tobacco” habit. Then, I lost the slippery little thing when it fell out of a pocket at a wedding and I never ordered another. Shrug, fun while it lasted. Of course, the Era was on its way. Pax seems to have embraced their product as a Cannabis vape and stopped the “tobacco use only” nod to headshops. The Era is only for cannabis use, the Juul pods aren’t compatible, but using the same tech are leak free and flavors are easily swapped out. The cartridges themselves are cleverly sold in slick little boxes with child-resistant packaging. I’m a sucker for nice design and this thing has it in spades.

Berries and Creme or “Cremé” if you indulge cute affectations, is a recent addition to the @certifiedpdx line up. A worthy addition too. Bred intentionally in-house (read: not a happy accident) this cross between Grease Monkey from Exotic Genetix and Breeder Steve’s Shiskaberry combines the punch and terps of our modern strains with the variety and complexity of the decades-old favorite. The result has bag appeal that’s off the charts and a subtle flavor that begs for a second impression (and third, then fourth). The flavor here is caramelized sugar, freshly made waffle cone, under-ripe fruit and blackberry bush. A stem rub reveals tomato leaf, black pepper and a whiff of volatile acetone reminiscent of a mid-mural cloud of spray paint. The effect is pronounced. Felt first behind the eyes then spreads and relaxes the rest of my face. Clench released, the clarity of thought assists in a few decisions I’ve been postponing and then I’m right into planning mode. Clearly stoned and positively productive, my favorite. One last thing to point out, this batch tested at something like 12%. I had to go back and read that result three times. I’ve had growers tell me that they had to stop running beautiful plants because they tested too low too often. This just goes to show that THC percentage has been turned into more of a marketing tool than an accurate representation of how well a flower is grown or how that translates to effect. Try this alongside some boofy 31% Banner and taste the difference. On shelves now @farma_pdx , and @archive_portland. Photo 📸 by the talented @mathiasailstock and lifted from the @certifiedpdx feed.
