Don’t inhale too deeply when you’re smoking Sweet C02’s S.W.E.E.T 200mg disposable vape pens. I learned this the hard way while doing research for this review, and let me tell you, my choking could be heard across the mountains and into New Mexico. I’m still horrified.
But before I get into the story of the day I choked like an idiot on a disposable vape, let’s talk about what these S.W.E.E.T 200mg Disposable Vape pens are, shall we? It’ll help give you some insight into what the hell I’m talking about.
So, the S.W.E.E.T disposable vape pens are a new product from Sweet C02, our local cannabis extraction badasses. These pens are super affordable – about $27 for the 200mg version – and come in indica, sativa, and hybrid. They’re also available in a 500mg option, but the 200mg version doesn’t require a charger, a cartridge, or a separate battery; you literally just throw yo’ mouth on it, inhale, and voila! You are stoned. Perfect for tourists or people who aren’t ready to invest in equipment but want to imbibe on some sweet, sweet (pun intended) concentrate.
I went with the 200mg hybrid pen, which is filled with a little less than a 1/4 gram of C02 oil. The hybrid option seemed wise because I become a pile of sawdust with indicas, and on the flip side, I really didn’t want to spend my day cleaning the house or working on, well, work simply because I smoked a sativa. I wanted a middle ground. I like to straddle the line, not walk it. Johnny Cash I am not.
Going with the hybrid was a good call, because holy hell, these little vapes pack a punch. But they’re not only strong; they’re also super cool looking, what with their stainless steel exterior and the blue light at the end, which lights up when you inhale. I made the mistake of standing near a mirror and caught sight of the blue light at the end of the vape. It caused me to get a little distracted, so I ended up inhaling REALLY deeply, and then choked like I’d inhaled pepper spray.
After the choking subsided, I took a few more hits and then felt like I should have: stoned. My head was in the freaking clouds, my arms felt like pool noodles, and I was having trouble forming words, much less coherent sentences. I tried to say something – can’t really remember what – multiple times, but was met with laughter from the person I was attempting to speak to. They asked me what I was trying to say, and I vaguely remember responding with, “I don’t know…” in an extremely pathetic tone. That entire exchange seemed ridiculous to me, so I slipped into a giggle fit that felt like it lasted as long as the choking fit had a few minutes prior.
Luckily, things evened out a short while after, and I got not only the use of my lips back, but also my arms. A win! Nothing like getting your arms to cooperate while you’re high, am I right? That fuzzy, warm feeling of being stoned stuck around, all while I was able to communicate and shovel chips into my mouth.
I freaking love these new Sweet C02 vapes. There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to get high and finding that you never charged your pen. They’re a solid investment if you’re a lazy stoner (all of you! and us!), or if you’re in town for a few days. Just make sure you don’t smoke them in front of a mirror, a’ight? That blue light is very distracting.
