Vaping and Oil FAQ 2017-02-13T12:45:08+00:00


  1. What is the best way to charge my battery? Did you know that your battery only has a limited amount of charges? Extend the life of your vape pen by recharging only when it is almost out of energy and you will save time and money.
  2. How do I clean my Med-ePen? Extend the life of your vapor pen by cleaning it once a week with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Cleanliness is next to Vapiness!
  3. Why should I avoid cheap pens?  Not all the pens and lithium batteries are created equal. Sub quality batteries can explode causing harm to patient and property. Google “vape pen explosion”. That is why we source all of our batteries and accessories from certified manufacturers who also manufacture batteries used in cell phones, laptops and other mainstream electronics. Your safety is our number one concern.
  4. Do all vape pen companies use the same size battery in their cases? Beware of small batteries hidden in big cases with foam. Unscrupulous vape pen manufacturers use cheap foam to disguise small batteries. All #MedePen™ are made with bigger batteries than our competition so you get the long charge you need for your medical conditions.
  5. What is the difference between a “Gpen”, an “Open”, an “Epen” and the “Medepen”? A Gpen is a concentrates vaporizer made by a company called Grenco Science. An Open, made by a company called OpenVape is also a concentrates vaporizer more suitable for mostly oil based concentrates. An Epen is a vape pen made by a company called Vype and is more steered toward nicotine and ecig based liquids for use. The Medepen line of Vape Pens is our product line, which are refillable and can be used for everything from medical oils and wax to using Medepen like an ecig with nicotine juice or ejuice.
  6. Where can I buy Nicotine Juice or Other Concentrates to use with my Medepen Vaping Pen Kit? As far as being able to purchase nicotine juice, most likely you can look up local shops close to you on the Internet by searching the term e-juice store, or e-cig store. As far as concentrates are concerned such as wax, CO2 Oil, Wax and other concentrates, the laws can vary from state to state. If you are in a medical use state, you must have a card from a state run medical program and will be able to purchase medical products from a licensed dispensary once you are registered. If you happen to live in a recreational state, such as Colorado, and you are 21 years old or over, you can purchase concentrates from a recreational use dispensary which can be searched for via the Internet.
  7. What is e-juice (e-liquid)? E-juice (also known as e-liquid) is a liquid used in vaporizers (also known as e-cigs or e-cigarettes). E-juice is a fluid that is turned into breathable vapor inside of a refillable vape pen or e-cig. E-juice is used as refillable liquid for refillable vape pens or e-cigs.
  8. What is vaporizing or vaping? Thanks to greatly improved vaporizing technology, vaping has become popular with both smokers and non-smokers. Vaping is in many cases used as an alternative to smoking and also can help in quitting cigarettes. With smoking no longer allowed in most bars and restaurants, vaping offers what many consider a great alternative to walking outside to have a cigarette. Vaping does not produce any smoke, only vapor. This vapor dissipates quickly and leaves almost no scent whatsoever.
  9. Does e-juice produce smoke? No, e-juice does not produce smoke. The effect of e-juice may look like smoke but it is simply vapor and nothing more.
  10. How long does a cartridge of e-juice last? Our largest cartomizer can hold up to 1.5ml of e-juice. We sell a range of cartomizer sizes such as 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 1.0 and 1.5ml refillable sizes. Each person’s vaping style affects the length of use, but on average a 1.5ml cartomizer will last for: Non-Smokers: 1-3+ days depending on frequency of use, Light Smokers: 1 full day, Heavy Smokers: 1 half day to 1 full day.
  11. I’m not a smoker, will I like vaping at all? Many people vape who aren’t even smokers also enjoy the flavor of e-juice which also comes in just flavors with no nicotine content whatsoever. Vaping can also be a viable alternative for patients who don’t like the experience of smoking or dry concentrates and instead prefer to use a refillable vape pen such as Medepen for their concentrates and oils.
  12. I’m trying to quit smoking, will vaping help? It can assist smokers, at this time the US FDA has not approved this method as a smoking cessation device/method. It has been known among people that have smoked cigarettes that it is a helpful method of cutting down on cigarettes or quitting.
  13. Are vaporizers (e-cigs) allowed in public places? Portable vaporizers and e-cigs are typically allowed in public where smoking may be prohibited. Please ensure that you check with the establishment (bar, restaurant, shopping, etc.) as some businesses may not allow the use of portable vaping pens. In most cases it is ok but double check to make sure.
  14. What is a “cartomizer” or a “clearomizer”? The most important part of an e-cig or portable vape pen is the “atomizer”. This is the electrical part of the vaping system that heats and vaporizes the e-juice to produce the tasty vapor. The “atomizer” is placed inside a clear (or colored) cart which is called a “cartomizer” or a “clearomizer” (for transparent carts). The cartomizer draws e-juice from its reservoir and uses that reservoir to bring a consistent supply of e-juice to the atomizer.
