A new trend in the cannabis product world is choosing the feeling or mood you want after smoking rather than selecting your high by strain. The reason for this is because it’s almost impossible for strains to be exactly the same, especially if different growers cultivate the plants. I mean, there are some dispensaries in Orange County that sell the Northern Lights strain as a sativa even though it’s famously known as an indica.
Thus, picking your high by the name of a strain is faulty. That’s why Evoxe Laboratories has made their vapes the name of different moods, rather than strain. They’re on their second generation vape pen, and the improvements are solid. Compared to the last generation, it’s much easier to suck the vape juice out of the pen thanks to a new mouthpiece. They also don’t leak the way they used to, which is perhaps the best improvement made to the disposable cigarette-sized vapes.
Evoxe has five different moods to choose from: Balance and Balance+ (CBD vapes), Deep (indica dominant hybrid), Engage (sativa hybrid) and Stealth (indica). The Balance+ is one of the best CBD vapes we’ve tried yet. It comes in a white and gold cigarette shape and hardly looks like a cannabis product. The oil extracted from the Harle-Tsu strain, which is a 21:1 ratio of CBD to THC. Evoxe uses CO2 extraction method, as well, in order to ensure the safest and purest ingestion.
You might be wondering why there’s THC in the blend if it’s supposed to be CBD and non-psychoactive. But CBD needs THC in order to be activated thanks to the entourage effect.
Balance+ is ideal for anxiety, stress and pain relief. But perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this vape is that the CBD oil is blended with different essential oils: Ylang ylang, which is an antidepressant and has antiseptic qualities; frankincense, used for relieving chronic stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, boosting immunity and it’s even said to have cancer fighting properties; tangerine, which is known for its antiseptic qualities as well as cytophylactic properties and aids in restoring damaged tissues in the body; and geranium oil, which is used to reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety and balance hormones. No wonder this vape blend is called “Balance+.”
Picking a strain isn’t always easy, but deciding what mood you want to be in is—who doesn’t want to be balanced? And if you’re just getting into smoking cannabis, going with Balanced+ is a no brainer.
