Willie’s Reserve is a company named after one of the most famous potsmokers in the World. Willie Nelson. A lot of times people are annoyed with these types of “Boutique” brands that are named after a celebrity. After all, what exactly does Willie have to do with the creation of the product? I imagine he isn’t watering all the plants everyday. Nonetheless, the king of pot in the US has created a really fine product. I’ve got his buds before, and am never let down by the quality. They’re a bit pricier but it’s worth it.
So, if you’re buying the WIllie’s Reserve vape pen you’re going to get two things. One is a cartridge, this comes filled with the distillate (oil) which is then vaporized. Willie’s oils are marketed as being “terpene rich” which means they should give you the full experience of smoking weed, rather than just a quick dose of THC. The mothpiece has a nice big hole which can deliver pretty big hits. I’ve noticed on some of the smaller vape pens that the holes on these mouthpieces can often get gummy and sticky. I even have to occasionally use a toothpick to clean it out. This is not the case with the Willie’s Reserve vape pen. It absolutely delivers, and delivers in a big way.
The taste is really something to write home about. The other pens I’ve used in the past can sometimes have a chemical taste to them. With this pen, I was really happy to taste all the nuances of the bud. I’m still a big fan of smoking flowers, so I’m a bit picky when it comes to pens but I’m confident to say that this is the best weed vape pen I’ve ever tried.
One downside I’ve noticed is that for whatever reason, I do have to hit it a bit harder than my other pens. I’m not sure why this would be. But it was easily reconciled by simply puffing on it a bit before taking a monster hit. Perhaps the battery level effects the amount of heat produced, but I’ve noticed that I do have to hit it a bit harder.
The cartridges come in a few varieties. Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. I went for the Sativa and it produced a very energetic high that wasn’t couch locky at all. As someone who needs to work and smoke, I’ve found that this vape pen was truly a godsend that with only a few mini tokes, I could get back “on the road” again in no time.
