Toko is a company that produces disposable vape pens, along with refillable and rechargeable ones. All of Toko’s products contain THC extracted using a CO2 and ethanol extraction, along with terpenes that have been re-added to enhance the flavour. The Toko Gold Tip worked well, allowing the extract to flow into the chamber providing smooth, flavourful and potent hits.
The best place to source Toko vape pens is through CannaWorld.ca, who regularly stock all of their products. Registration is open to all Canadians 19+ and is simple to complete. Toko vape pens are available in some dispensaries in Toronto, and are becoming more popular.
Toko Pricing & Selection:
Toko produces a variety of different vape pens, all infused with THC and terpenes. All Toko pens are lab tested, using THC extracted using CO2 and ethanol. Once the THC has been extracted, terpenes are added to the extract to make it more flavourful. Some of the Toko products use non-cannabis derived terpenes, but the majority use live cannabis derived terpenes from the exact same cannabis strain.
The Toko Flave Pen’s are disposable, containing 0.5mL of extract, or roughly 0.55g each. These pens use non-cannabis derived terpenes to create their vast array of flavours including Blueberry, Root Beer, and Honey Dew, retailing for $60 each. The Toko Slim’s are disposable and contain a 0.4mL cartridge, holding about 0.44g of extracts. They used live cannabis-derived terpenes for flavour in the Slim’s, creating the Grape Kush, Pennywise, and Girl Scout Cookies vape pens which retail for $55.
The Toko Gold Tips are Toko’s line of rechargeable and reusable vape pens. Toko is currently putting the final touches on their refill bottles that will soon be available. These bottles will come prepackaging with the concentrate and terpenes already mixed and ready for the vape pen. The Gold Tips use live cannabis derived terpenes from the fresh cannabis plant to flavour the concentrate. The Gold Tips have a 0.5mL cartridge containing 0.55g of concentrate. The Gold Tip on its own retails for $70, and retails for $100, when the adjustable heating Toko battery is included. This allows you to vaporize your concentrate at various incremental temperature settings.
Unique to Toko:
Toko sets themselves apart by creating vape pens that are flavourful, potent and easy to use. Each vape pen has non-cannabis or live cannabis derived terpenes, which create the unique taste profiles of each vape pen. The terpenes are mixed with a THC extract produced from CO2 and ethanol in a closed loop system. This process is very effective in recovering all of the solvent, providing a clean finished concentrate. Once the terpenes have been added to the concentrate, the THC concentration is lab tested at 51-68% depending on the strain. The lab results below is from a previous batch of vape pens and because of that, the percents do not match the packaging.
There are a number of different Toko vape pens to fit what works best for you. The disposable pens are great for people on the go, and the refillable pens allow you to top it up for long-term use. If you purchase the Toko vape battery as well, it will allow you to customize your vaping experience. It has multiple heat settings to vape your cannabis at the precise temperature you prefer. This attention to detail is shown by customizing the user experience, resulting in a great final product.
Gold Tip Grape Kush Smell, Texture, Taste:
When you first receive the Toko Gold Tip it will come packaged in a cardboard container marked with THC, CBD, and CBN percents, all of which have been lab tested. The packaging also notifies you it is a “CO2 extracted cannabis oil processed with food grade alcohol,” has a refillable 0.5mL (0.55g) cartridge, the strain name, along with safety and storage tips.
Once you open the packaging you will notice that the amber liquid is quite runny because of the terpenes, this allows it to easily flow into the heating chamber. Through out using the Toko Gold Tip, not once did the cartridge get blocked. Previously, other vape pens will on occasion block the airflow requiring you to heat up the pen until the concentrate vaporizes and airflow is restored.
The cartridge has a slight grapey scent to it, but not one that is strong or distinctly cannabis. If you take a close smell you will be able to distinguish this pen as the Grape Kush tip. The vapor definitely has a noticeable grape flavour; with the terpenes being extracted from the live cannabis plant and being re-added after the THC has been extracted. The flavour is not exactly grape because it uses cannabis terpenes, rather than grape plant terpenes. This results in a flavour that has strong grape notes that trail off into an earthy, sweet cannabis flavour. There are some slight hints of lavender that help relax the patient. This taste is very pleasant and enjoyable, producing medium-large sized vapour clouds. When taking larger drags on the Toko Gold Tip Grape Kush it can provide lung expansion, causing the patient to cough. This will help the effects settle in and usually happens on longer, warmer hits that usually possess a more earthy flavour. The vapor from the Toko Vape Pen Grape Kush leaves a slight dab smell in the air that lingers for a few minutes. This product works really well for discrete sessions.
Gold Tip Grape Kush Effects:
When using the Toko Gold Tip, I noticed that the onset of effects is slightly more delayed (1-2 minutes) than when cannabis is smoked. When the effects do fully settle in it provides a strong, relaxing sensation. With the effects being slightly delayed, it is recommended you take your time when vaping to ensure you don’t consume too much. Grape Kush is an indica dominant hybrid that is known for it’s creeping effects. If you consume too much, the effects can be over powering and put you to sleep. When consuming an appropriate amount this strain acts more like a hybrid and can even provide uplifting effects. The Toko Gold Tip Grape Kush is a great product to de-stress from a long day and in larger amounts can help you sleep. Medically this strain works well for anxiety, stress, appetite, and insomnia.
