White Widow Bhang Stick Black Review by OCWeedReview.Com
The classic 510 thread has become the gold standard in the portable vape pen market, with most major companies tossing their own versions into the proverbial ring, including the Bhang Stick by well known cannabis edible maker Bhang.
However, to set yourself apart in a crowded market like this, you have to do something special, so Bhang has upped their game by introducing Bhang Stick Black – Private Reserve, a high potency version of their standard Bhang Stick vape. The Bhang Private Reserve line uses pure cannabis oil in their vape, with no additives or thinners added.
The “ultra refined” oil in Bhang Black is tested for potency, residuales, and microbials for a safe, high quality product. Each vape cartridge contains 275 mg of strain specific CO2 oil. The White Widow we reviewed tested in at over 75% THC. The oil had a golden yellow color and hits revealed a rich, woody flavor.
I’m sure I’m going to ruffle some feathers when I say these hits of Bhang Black seemed to me to be about as close to a real dab as a disposable vape pen can get. A rare few other companies, like Oasis and Spliffin, pull off this achievement.
It actually took a while to get used to the potency, after testing a lesser vape product the week before. The high is immediately heady, even a bit dizzying. Sensory engagement with the world around you is heightened and sharply stimulating. A balanced indica/sativa hybrid, most patients report White Widow to be creative and energetic, making it an effective daytime strain.

When the market for any product is as saturated as the vape pen market is becoming, there is only one surefire way to rise above the competition, the combination of R&D and consumer specific design found in the J-PEN II from Vaporous. From battery to mouthpiece and all the tiny bits inbetween, this is the most carefully thought out mini-vape we have come across, and it shows with its user experience.
In a world of long, bulky, heavy vape pens, it is a breath of fresh air to be able to use such a portable product. Fitting in the palm of my hand and completely hidden except for the mouthpiece when in use, it is the definition of discrete, and the J-PEN’s short body size and light weight means it easily fits in a pocket, purse, or laptop bag for vaping on the go. But it’s small size certainly doesn’t mean a weak vaping experience.
The J-PEN’s double coil atomizer design creates an immense amount of heat, and its unique drop down air regulator keeps your extract down on the heating element where it belongs, ensuring huge, vaporous hits even with short bursts from the 3.7V battery. This innovative design also keeps excess concentrate residue out of the mouthpiece, to lessen the effort needed to maintain a clean and working unit. Because of the use of silica and ceramic wicks and the amount of heat produced by the battery, be sure not to burn the atomizer dry to avoid damaging the unit.
It is also recommended that you prepare your atomizer by dripping vape liquid, available at any smoke shop, onto the wick before use with extracts. We decided to forgo this step and used a less viscous CO2 oil with the unit right out of the package. On the very first hit, we received an enormous, flavorful cloud of vapor, confirming the J-PEN was working as advertised.
Even with daily charging, frequent use drained the battery to empty with less than a day’s intense testing, leaving us stranded a few times without a way to medicate. This is a trade-off for small battery size, so it’s not a bad idea to invest in a backup battery (almost any 510 thread will do) which saved us more than once while out and about. Especially with several hours needed for a full charge, vigilance in tracking battery life is critical, since no one wants to be out of commision that long. The J-PEN II comes with an extended wire on the charger to keep weight off your usb port connector. However, because the unit charges through the atomizer connection, it is impossible to vape while charging.
Because of the design of the air flow regulator, the clean-up for the J-PEN was a snap. With CO2 oils, it just required wiping down the inside with a paper towel. Waxes and shatters might need some high-grade rubbing alcohol as a solvent. Regardless, the J-PEN required much less maintenance than any other vape pen we’ve tested for reliable, issue-free use.
Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with the innovation included into the J-PEN. We have yet to review a better small format vape pen, and the sleek design and mini-size make it a versatile solution for the discerning vaper.

aGo G5 3 Mode Vape Pen from King Pen Vapes Review by OCWeedReview.Com
It seems like vape pens are everywhere lately. Ex-smokers are using them to kick the habit. Millennials are using them for the richly flavored clouds they can create with their vape juice, and cannabis patients love them for discreet medicating with the assortment of mediums we have available to us. The problem thenbecomes, not whether a vape pen exists for your needs, but how many different pens you find yourself needing. If you have a separate pen for your oils, waxes, and flower, then you are the perfect user for the new aGo G5. Each unit comes with 3 attachments: one for liquid vape juices and oil, a wax atomizer for cannabis concentrates, and a dry herb coil. No matter how varied your demands, the aGo G5 can handle them.
One of the first things you notice about the G5 is that it has the industry standard 510 thread, meaning both the battery and the attachments are interchangeable with most other pens. So unlike your Apple products, your aGo G5 will play nice with all your other toys. During our time testing this pen, we loved the versatility of both the battery and the interchangeable attachments, and we still use the components, together and separately from each other, daily.
Personally, I have just begun using dry herb vape pens. Though even in my brief experience, I have learned to spot the difference between a true vaping experience and just burning the plant material. Be sure to order the clear heat filter offered by King Vapes to keep your bud up and off the coil. Even using this added spacer, I still ended with some light singeing and a burnt taste and smell when taking big hits, a lighter pack and shorter times on the hot coil lessened this effect. There is a convenient spring that keeps the bud on the heat, while the multiple layers of filters help the mouthpiece from becoming resinous or clogged. Each pack gave 2-3 hits, the first being the most vaporous, with each hit diminishing from the last. True dry herbvaping doesn’t produce the big clouds that wax and liquid vaping do. But the taste and the high will let you know it’s working.
With the wax attachment, we had air flow issues. If not originating in the design, it may have been anoverpack effect because it certainly wasn’t a power issue. The wick and coil became red hot almost immediately upon hitting the power button. I found it offered quick vaporizing of the waxes I used with it, and the extended battery time means that you can take long, cloudy rips.
I’d never used a vapor pen before that used liquid, so I took a trip to my local vape store to see what they could recommend. I ended up walking out with a strawberry flavored, nicotine-free “juice”. Being a novice, I enjoyed the easy to fill reservoir, and holding up to 1.6 ml of liquid, it is large enough to take on the road with you without needing a refill. The wick system used by the G5 is incredibly efficient. The fast heating and long hit time offered huge clouds with minimal warm up. With a saccharine sweet strawberry flavor to my vape juice, I could easily see the appeal to using this attachment just for flavored vapes. It can also use glycerine based vape oil with either nicotine or cannabis, meaning this is a multifunctional attachment for vapors of all types.
One of our favorite features of the G5 is its battery life. We were able to log over 350 hits per charge just using it around the office. Regardless, thank goodness for the power gauge, so you can realistically know how much charge is left when it finally does run down, rather than just guessing like with some batteries. The hit counter resets after each charge, adding to the ability to avoid your battery being drained when you need it most. Not once while using the aGo G5 have we been stranded with a dead battery.
When buying this complete set from King Pen Vapes, you get all three attachments mentioned above. You also receive the usb charger and an added wall charger, a cleaning brush and an extra spring for the dry herb unit, and a multi-purpose packing tool. Not only that, but King Pen Vapes offers free shipping and includes a gift with every purchase. On an anonymous follow up order we placed to test their service, they upgraded one item we ordered and doubled the quantity of another. We’ve been pleased with the aGo G5 pen and the King Pen Vapes online vape store and confidently recommend them both.

Seego Vhit King Dry Herb Vape Pen by OCWeedReview.Com
I’ve long looked at getting myself a dry herb vaporizer so that I could give my lungs a much needed break after almost two decades of smoking cannabis. However, by the time I fully committed to vaping, extracts were all the rage, and I ended up getting wrapped up in the new fangled concentrate pens. This didn’t curb my curiosity about dry herb pens, though, so when Seego approached me with the chance to try out their new Vhit King dry herb vape, I jumped at the opportunity to finally vape flower.
I’ve mostly used mini vapes like the Cloud and the microG, so a piece this size is a new experience for me. The unit itself is quite long, just a couple inches short of a foot, but can still conveniently be thrown in a laptop bag or large purse. Despite this, I found it easier to keep the unit at home. But even with its size, it is notably more discreet than smoking due to the lack of smell. I could comfortably vape in my home or backyard without worrying about the negative smell of smoke and those who might be bothered by it.
Seego’s dry herb vape is quite heavy as well, further limiting some of its portability. Its heft is due to its solid steel construction. In a world of cheap plastic and thin aluminum vape pens that break as soon as you use them, it is refreshing to find Seego using such quality materials. Just handling this pen, it is clear that it has been well crafted and will last for years, and I’m confident that I will still be using this vape well into the future.
The Vhit King offers a clean, metallic design and several great innovations. The first of these is their mosquito coil heating element, which increases the surface area from where the heat is produced and raises the overall effectiveness of the pen. The second is their unique plunger system that assists in both thepacking of your dry herb and emptying of the unit after use. Lastly, the Vhit King offers a choice of air intake sizes so that you can control the airflow of your hit. With these advances in mind, Seego clearly has interestin producing a cutting edge vaping experience due to the development put into this unit.
I found that using very dry, finely ground flower worked best when vaping with this unit: think that freerollfrom your dispensary last visit. Also, be sure not to exert the plunger too hard, or your cannabis will pack too tight, restricting air flow and singeing your green, causing a burnt smell and taste. My one criticism about the Vhit King isn’t about the vape attachment, but about the battery. I would have preferred a system that allowed longer than a 5 second hit, but it sounds like, as of printing the review, Seego has already addressed this with their new batteries, the G-hit GIB-2, offered in the Vhit King Kit, which includes everything you need to get started using the Vhit King dry herb vape.
This unit does not make the huge clouds of vapor that my wax pens do, if really vaping and not just burning the flower. However, the pure taste of flavorful cannabis buds tells you its hitting. There was also no real way to tell when the bud was cashed, which took some trial and error to learn. However, I must say I have gotten better using the Vhit King with practice. Training myself on what to expect with use, dry herb vapinghas become one of my preferred methods of medicating thanks to Seego’s Vhit King.
