Disposable VS Reusable Vape Pens, Which Do You Need?

Cannabis consumption has come a long way in the last few decades – especially since state-wide legalization has made it possible for more research to be done on many avenues. Where grinding up your bud and tossing it into your batter used to be the way to go with baking, now we turn to more sophisticated (and flavorful) options like cannabutter; and where smoking used to be the best way to partake in the herb, now vaporizing is on the rise as a more health conscious and discrete option.

For those both living in or visiting a state where cannabis is legal there are still limitations on where it is okay to consume cannabis and how. Luckily though, vaporizers make this much easier as it offers a discrete alternative to smoking. It looks like any other vape, the aroma is generally more remnant of the citrus, pine or berry hints that the strain being used gives off, rather than the skunky aroma a burning bowl or joint is known to have.

There are several types of vaporizers you can choose from when you start looking – but the most popular are the pen style vapes that look like an e-cig. These are preferred because they are more discrete than bulkier vapes, are generally cost effective, and some come prefilled from dispensaries. However, even once you decide on a pen vape you will still need to decide if you would prefer a disposable or reusable one.

There are pros and cons to both – and it really all comes down to your personal needs.

Pros and Cons of a Disposable Vape Pen


-          Comes prefilled

-          Will not need charged between uses

-          Inexpensive


-          When it runs out, it’s out

-          Can be more expensive if used regularly

-          Only one choice in strain per pen

Pros and Cons of a Reusable Vape Pen


-          Can be recharged for frequent use

-          Interchangeable cartridges mean more strain options

-          Prefilled cartridges available (usually less expensive than disposable pens)


-          Requires charging before use

-          More expensive right out of the gate (less expensive over the long-term)

-          Batteries can die, and pen may need replaced

If you are looking into a vape pen because you think you will use it frequently while going about your day-to-day activities, then you may want to consider a reusable vape pen. It will save you money in the long-run to buy cartridges – and you can mix and match strains, giving your more options. Wake and bake vaping with a sativa and wind down at the end of the night with an indica – your options are limitless.

However, if you’re looking for something that will be just what you need in the short-term either because you don’t consume cannabis very often, or because you are visiting a legal state – then you may want to consider a disposable vape pen. If you want variety in strains, consider more than one – but then you won’t be stuck with something you hardly ever use or cannot keep when you go home. When the pen runs out, simply toss it – if you need another one you can always go back to the dispensary.

Evergreen Organix offers a variety of reusable and disposable vape pens and prefilled cartridges. Oil cartridges come as an indica or sativa strain, with either 250 or 500 milligrams of THC. No matter what your needs – medicinal or recreational – Evergreen Organix has a vape that will fit the bill.
