Ingredients: Per the package, "Pure Cannabis Oil, Beta-Myrcene, Alpha-Pinene, Nerolidol"
Functionality: This model of disposable pen is as simple as it gets. There’s not even a power button. You simply draw on the pen and it automatically activates and produces vapor. The tip has a blue light indicator when the pen is activated. The pen shuts off automatically after about 5-6 seconds.
Performance: I did not experience any issues with performance or reliability.

Terpenes Profile & Flavor Experience: Beta-Myrcene ?%; Nerolidol ?%; Alpha-Pinene ?%; (LK Pure Labs)
The packaging lists these three terpenes as being reintroduced into the final product. I’m guessing these are the top 3 terpenes with the highest quantities present in flower's profile.
Since I have never tried the flower, I looked to World of Seeds for an indication of what flavors to expect, which describes the aromas and flavors as “A bittersweet, fruity aroma and taste.” I tasted the spicy-fruity Beta-Myrcene (which for some reason always bothers my throat) combined with the pine flavor from the Alpha-Pinene and partly from the Nerolidol. Did that flavor combo accurately translate the flower’s inherent flavors? I'm unsure because I’ve yet to try the flower.
TIP: To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Having never tried the flower, I did not know what to expect. The supplier, World of Seeds, describes the high as “A potent Sativa effect initially that becomes more sedative as time passes.” Essentially, that was the set of effects that I experienced. Some folks report feeling mostly the Indica effects while others like myself experience an initial, sustained Sativa lift before the relaxation kicks in. For me, the effects were somewhat reminiscent of the Alien Rock Candy strain.
Duration of Effects: 1-2 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with stress. May also help with mood, anxiety, mild fatigue, mild aches and pains, appetite (and more)
A solid pen that’s reliable and offers a unique landrace.
