James Henry’s disposable vape pens are a very good idea

They make a name for themselves with a sleek design and carefully formulated oils that deliver unique and precise effects.

Vape pens are beautiful, but their hardware presents some pain-in-the-ass issues. The cartridge, pen and battery charger are all separate units that have a nagging tendency to get discoconnected and lost in the bottom regions of your junk drawer.

A few vape companies have addressed this by making disposable vape pens. These all-in-one units pack the single-use pen, oil cartridge, and battery into one seamless device, great for travelers visiting recreational states (or for the vaper who’d rather not collect hardware).

Yes, disposable units are a throwaway society concept and they contribute to landfill. Unfortunately, the same is true for just about every vape product in California. A new player is based on Bay Area James Henry, whose elegant, 4-inch “mini-pens” are designed to allow you to discreetly strike while hiding the device in the palm of your hand. These are 300 milligram vape pens, not the standard 500 milligram cartridges you may be used to. James Henry pens are stunningly simple, with no “toke” button and a handy LED light on the end that tells you when you’re getting a hit.

What is truly revolutionary is the precise formulation of their oil, which is synthesized for specific therapeutic and mood effects. They are available in three different versions, and SF Weekly can confirm that each of them live up to its billing.

A CBD-dominant blend called Daytime: Focus delivers a calming, ethereal effect designed to empower and enable productivity. Weekend: Retreat Indica is a full THC formula that produces ambient and sleepy effects while Evening: Social Sativa shoot for a talkative and creative high.

These are definitely high-end luxury pens, going up to $40 or $50 before state and local taxes. In other words, these are 300 milligram pens that cost more than some 500 milligram pens that are on the same pharmacy shelf.

And disposable pens cannot be recycled; they are pure waste. This is no manufacturer’s fault, as California’s cannabis regulations have consistently failed to create a framework for legal recycling of cannabis products. Still, disposable behavior will be a deal breaker for some sustainability-conscious smokers.

But the luxury buyer will see James Henry vape pens as an elegant highlight. Their futuristic shape will impress, they are remarkably simple and easy to use, and the oil quality is on the very high end of the spectrum.

Potency: While the oil has high potency, the formulation is more focused on concentration or relaxation than a “head high.”

Odor: Your clean, exhaled smoke has no odor.

Taste: A very distinctive sweet floral taste – which is pleasant, but may not appeal to purists who prefer an unspiced taste.

Appearance: Small, smooth, silver and simplee. Completely intuitive for a beginner.

Medical Application: The three variants are “inspired by” Adderall, Prozac and Xanax respectively and can provide similar results without harsh pharmaceutical side effects.

Effect: The pens all give the exact feel advertised, so James Henry could become a household name.
