Besides the euphoric bliss and health benefits, cannabis basically makes everything just a little bit better. And my favorite thing about our favorite plant has to be the taste. When I was a teenager getting stoned in parking lots and skateparks, we would consider ourselves lucky to get a gram of cheap ditch weed from some sketchy dealer that smelled more like Pine-Sol than cannabis. (The cheap ditch weed, not the dealer. Then again . . .)
Now that we have the luxury of legal, lab-tested cannabis available with just a few swipes on our phones, it’s easy to forget how far we’ve come. One thing that I will never take for granted is the availability, convenience and results I get using my Pax Era vaporizer pen while running errands, working or binge watching all my favorite rom-coms from the comfort of my bed. Now that Island, one of my personal favorite brands, has teamed its expertly crafted extract experience with Pax’s sleek design, I really don’t have much to say other than to throw up a shaka and order another mai tai.
Each solventless cartridge comes ready to use, will last you about twice as long as the competition and tastes like a vacation in your lungs. For every vape device on the market that is worth the price tag, there are about 10 that kind of suck. Lucky for you, I am here to be your mystical shaman on the path toward cannabis enlightenment. Seek out Island to find out for yourself why its products stand out in a crowded sea.
