>>Though I guess w/ vape pens, people will just probably assume that you're constantly eating cotton candy and cinnamon rolls?
the one i got didn't have any fancy smells or flavors added in. mostly it's a smell that is kinda dank if you sniffed the cloud after exhaling, but it dissipates very quickly. Ive heard its best to avoid the ones with added smells anyway since the effects of breathing those additives aren't really known. The more pure thc/cbd the oil is the better (supposedly anyway, I havent had too much experience with these yet).
I like the smell a lot too. Freshly ground herb makes for some good sniffing.
Pre-made cannibutter is definitely going to be a thing, but the legal industry here isn't there yet (heck, I still have yet to purchase any 100% government approved product cus the availability isn't there yet). But in general I do think if i went back to edibles, the capsule form is probably better suited to me now. candy and baked edibles often taste nasty anyway. I've heard that beer companies are trying to make mass-market cannabis drinks, which could have major potential if they actually taste good.
>>That's the idea but I'm not sure if it really works that way. Water pipes just seem like small bongs to me and hit pretty much the same (and just like bongs they can still be pretty harsh despite the cooling nature of the water).
hmm, well I'll still give one a try. I've never used a bong aside from a few random hits at parties from bongs that definitely weren't the cleanest. So I really don't have a sense of what water-filtration is actually like. Maybe I'll like it better, maybe I wont.
I feel you on the old-habits die hard thing. I definitely still don't feel super comfortable lighting one up in public yet, especially if nobody else is doing it. it just feels weird. Like if I see someone outside smoking I'll think "oh hey neat, thats cool", but if I'm out in public I always think people who see me are thinking *stoner alert! look at this walking stereotype!*
But yeah things are changing. The park near my house is pretty great to go for a stroll with a joint and some music when the weather is nice. There are some weirdos in there though which is annoying. The last few times some random guy showed up out of nowhere and wouldn't leave me alone until I gave him the rest of what I had, and another time some gangster dude came up to me asking me if I wanted to buy weed from him. That kind of stuff is a turn-off for sure.
