What are the best cannabis strains for vaping?

November 26, 2021

Vaping weed, either as a dry herb or in concentrate form is growing in popularity. There is plenty to be said in its favor. Taking a quick puff on a vape pen is less convoluted than going through the rigmarole of rolling a joint. It is also a more subtle way to consume cannabis if you are in public.  

Then there are the health considerations. We won’t delve too deeply into that here, as the potential health risks associated with vaping are hotly debated, but there is general consensus that vaping is less harmful than smoking, regardless of whether it is tobacco, cannabis or some other herb, as it means you are not inhaling the various compounds created in the combustion process.  

Another point on which there is general agreement is that some strains of cannabis lend themselves more readily to vaping than others. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular choices.  

Blue Dream

A sativa strain boasting high THC content, Blue Dream was one of the strains that really put California on the cannabis map. Despite the above-average THC, Blue Dream is popular with beginners and veterans alike. It delivers an exceptionally smooth smoke, which advocates say becomes all the better when delivered inn vape form. Blue Dream is also one of the more common strains to be prescribed for medical purposes, specifically to treat conditions like stress and depression. 

Girl Scout Cookies 

Another legend from the West Coast, girl scout cookies weed is one of the most popular strains among regular smokers. It is getting just as much attention from the vaping community. It is one of the more potent strains, and the euphoric high can be intensified when you vape it in concentrate form. It’s like nothing else on earth, and is definitely one that should be approached with caution if you are new to cannabis.  

Pink Bubba Kush 

This indica-dominant strain could not be more different to the first two on our list, save for the fact that it’s another that is super smooth as a vape. The sweet aroma is unmistakable and the initial feeling of euphoria is soon surpassed by deep relaxation. If you like a vape before bed, this is the one for you. In fact, this strain is sometimes used as a natural remedy for insomnia. Sweet dreams indeed! 

White Widow Shatter 

Two classics, White Widow and Shatter combine to form a hybrid that’s even greater than the sum of its parts. Like Girl Scout Cookies, it is one where the inherent intensity is wonderfully refined within a vape concentrate for an unforgettable experience. Medical users have reported that it can also be an effective analgesic for moderate pain, but further research is needed before any definitive claims can be made. 

Vaping is here to stay, and its applications for cannabis will only increase over the months and years ahead. If you are considering giving it a try, the above strains make a great starting point.
