Vaporizer
    For the canna-curious: 
    Ooze Slim Pen Twist Battery with Smart USB, $19.99
    Available at various Detroit-area dispensaries; oozelife.com
    
    We were canna-curious once when it came to vaping, and we remember not wanting to do a damn thing other than huff and puff on a portable and discreet pen anywhere and everywhere regardless of legal ramifications. Leave the high-maintenance vapes for the canna-sseur and don't overthink baby's first vape (as in you, baby, not an actual human baby, because that would be irresponsible). Welcome to the Ooze life: Ooze, a Michigan-bred cannabis accessory company, was one of the earliest vape batteries around. “Batteries? I thought we were talking about vape pens?” Calm down, newbie. Most disposable vape pens harness a battery, which you can then screw/pop in your favorite concentrate cartridge. You good? OK, so Ooze offers affordable — and colorful — USB rechargeable batteries that are so slim and so portable that you won't even know it's there. Well, that is until you hit that shit and you're on clouds 9, 10, and 420.
