Vape review: Airo Pro pen and cartridge
Every once in a while, it’s fun to be as big of a jerk as you can possibly be. In a SILLY way, mind you. I used this week’s review product, the Airo Pro pen and cartridge – a product formerly known as the IndigoPro, which has won a bunch of awards over the years at the Cannabis Cup – to do just that.
How did I act like a supreme jerk with the Airo Pro, you ask? Well, it’s simple. The Airo Pro is a vape pen that’s known for emitting three freaking times the amount of vapor as other pens, and I just so happened to *forget* to tell that to our other pot writer, Blaze Ridcully. Oh, and I forgot to tell Blaze that little factoid right before encouraging them to see how hard they could hit the Airo Pro. You see where this is going.
The reason why I was able to pull this off is because the Airo Pro is an unassuming looking vape. It’s just a pen, a cartridge, and yo’ mouth. All of their cartridges are magnetic (magneat-o!), so you just drop them into the pen and they just chill there ready to be used. They also come in different varieties, including regular C02 oil and flavored cartridges. I had opted for the Naughty and Nice indica cartridge, which was supposed to taste like strawberries and chocolate.
When you draw, the pen lightly vibrates instead of blinking a million LED lights to let EVERYONE know you’re vaping. So between that and the fact that we often challenge each other to inanely stupid shit like “see how long you can inhale for,” Blaze never even saw it coming.
As expected, Blaze took me up on my challenge and drew in the biggest lungful of vapor on the planet. They tried to be super chill and let the vapor out slowly, but ended up choking and gasping for air instead. And, because I’m a huge dick, I just laughed and laughed because I’d been warned by the budtender at Prohibition about the vape’s prowess. Luckily Blaze is a good sport and they laughed and laughed too, probably because they were higher than a kite.
And that’s another thing about Airo Pro’s products. They’re not only discreet, they’re also strong as hell, even if they are meant to taste like slightly naughty, slightly nice flavors. I was super stoned after a few hits of the Naughty and Nice cartridge. Stoned enough that I wrote a note that said, “It’s so weird how famous actresses can never go back to pretending they’re doctors in TV commercials after they make it big.” I don’t know why that mattered enough to note, but it did. And I guess that is weird; you won’t see Meryl Streep playing a doctor prescribing Cialis any time soon.
Anyway, for what it’s worth, I thought the Naughty and Nice cartridge tasted delicious, though it reminded me more of vanilla and strawberries than chocolate. I’m not even normally a huge fan of flavored cartridges. Blaze, on the other hand, was borderline too high to answer me on what they thought the flavor was, other than, “Uhh, strawberry banana!” MAYBE they should learn to vape in moderation so they can be helpful with reviews. Or maybe I should stop being a jerk.
Listen, if you’re looking for a vape that will absolutely make you choke, die, and then return to the planet high off your ass, Airo Pro is it. And, if you want to do that while inhaling a delicious-tasting vapor, Airo Pro is REALLY it. Just make sure you warn your smoking buddies of the whole “three times the vapor” thing or you’ll be dodging daggers like I have been all morning. Some people have no sense of humor.
