Let’s face it, there are a ton of vape pens on the market. Every day a new brand appears, promising improved user functionality, better hits and sleeker designs.
The truth is that many of these pens are the same. If you like vaping, chances are you will enjoy most of them. However, there are few pens that stand out in such a way that you should seriously consider adding another vape to your collection.
The Terrapen Vape Pen from the Legion of Bloom can be such an anomaly, if only for a very specific reason: this thing packs a huge punch.
Available in four separate terpene profiles — Re:sweet for pain, Re:lax for sleep, Re:vive for energy, and Re:zen for mental clarity — I was pretty sure what to expect when I took a few modest puffs of the Re. :loose formula. Instead of the gradual arrival of the psychoactive properties you expect from cannabis, this pen sent me sky high in no time.
One problem with vape pens I hear over and over is that they just don’t fit the heavy lifting of bongs, other glassware, and rolled paper products. I happen to think it’s appealing to be able to choose how heavily you want to feel the effects of your drug – versus the inevitable result of a massive tear of a RooR – but I understand the problem.
If you’ve ever wondered if a vape can take on the big boys, you’ll find the Terrapen is ready to deliver.
I’m not surprised the sleep formula would pack a punch, but the speed at which two hits sent me straight to the couch was impressive to say the least.
From a technological point of view, the Terrapen meets the latest expectations of modern vape users. The device includes a preheat function, a temperature indicator with three ranges, and an on-off and mode cycle system that is activated by how often you press the center button of the pen. (This ensures that you don’t accidentally activate a session while you’re in your booth.)
It also resembles most of the others on the market. However, for on-the-go puffs, I still prefer the ultra-compact, low-profile aesthetic of the PAX era. Very few people are likely to view a liquid-filled glass chamber attached to an oversized battery as anything other than a cannabis delivery system, but not every device needs to prioritize discretion.
Obviously, Legion of Bloom was more concerned with making sure the flower’s natural flavor wasn’t lost between electric coils and metal containers. They have succeeded on this point as well. The hits I got from the Terrapen were bursting with flavor – in no way inhibited by the brassy aftertaste that inferior vapes can sometimes cause.
Overall, the Terrapen is a great product for anyone who wants a portable, easy way to get great hits from a vaporizer. I’d say it’s more suited to living room and backyard sessions than sneaking out sneaking to concerts or days out on the town, but it’s worth considering as an addition to any patient’s vape collection.
