Dr. Greenthumb’s x Gpen: Stealthy, Sophisticated, and Fun!

Idon’t know about you, but even with newfound rules on smoking weed in public, I still look over my shoulder when smoking a joint around others. It’s just the smell that sets stigmatized folks off, and rightfully so with a forty-eight or so hours out of circulation that I experienced once in New York City. I learned how important it is not to antagonize others with weed smoke. Everyone should know this. The terminology in play here is called common sense. My correlation to this would be smoking a joint in the street in NYC. It still makes me nervous.

Imagine my appreciation when I received a brand spanking new Dr. Greenthumb x Gpen smoking device at my doorstep. This vaguely pickle-sized (and colored) cannabis smoking device was certainly an easy study. It came fully charged (a big plus), and it holds that first and subsequent charges through many sessions. The learning curve for this device was not outlandish. All I did was go to their YouTube and watch any number of videos with instructions that even a person of my age and intellectual capacity could appreciate under the influence of certain substances. This learning by watching methodology is definitely appreciated!

But back to the Gpen Dash. I’ve owned several of these over the years, and none have been as intuitive and smooth on my lungs as the new Dr. Greenthumb version. Filling with just about ¼ of a gram of nicely chopped flowers from my Gemini grinder is the start. Then I gently heat my secret blend in the Gpen to the lowest temperature. I’m catapulted into a realm of easy and nice, all at the same time. And that’s what the experience of smoking cannabis should be, at least for me. I want the experience to be simple and forthright. It’s important for this device to work silently and easily, just as it is important to be easy to clean and keep charged, ready for the next sesh.

What I like about this device:

It doesn’t get hot in my hand. That is a plus, so I’m not worried about setting my pocket on fire.

It does not shout the vapor as those “vape” cartridges do. The mist dissipates quickly and without much fanfare. A real plus when walking down the street when you don’t want to shout, look at me, I’m smoking weed. This device is especially easy to clean and keep clean. It doesn’t get mucked up with resin, nor does it change the flavor of your strain. The experience is pure and comfortable from start to finish.
I love mine. Fun to use and easy.
