*Straight out of Holland comes a company that prides itself on being innovative, and they have gone all out in their attempts to prove this by introducing the world’s first electronic joint.
Yep, welcome to the E-joint, y’all.
But before you get too excited and invite all of your friends and relatives around the world to join you for a toke, you should know that the point they seem to be interested in making has nothing to do with getting high.
I know. Bummer.
But get this: its shaped like a typical joint. It has a green cannabis leaf lighting up through a chrome-plated tip every time you take a toke. And it certainly has the look of pot paraphernalia.
But there is still that missing element, THC, the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis.
The fake “100 percent legal” joints may not give you the desired effect; but they vaporize so-called ‘safe components,’ such as natural Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin and “100 percent biological flavor,” into water vapor.
Hey, I’ve got an idea! You can think of it like those fake cigarettes. The one’s that claim to help people stop smoking!
But you’re going to have to shell out around $12 for this little ditty; which comes in six different flavors, including green apple, passion fruit, red cherry and watermelon.
Oh wait! There may be hope for those who are still not impressed.
The company plans to release other, more advanced joints in the future. For example, there’s a 100 percent THC-free rechargeable joint in the works, a dry herb/wax vaporizer, and as sports-oriented as we are these days, there is even a World Cup joint that comes in orange/apple flavor.
Oh, never mind.
Menno Contant, the CEO of E-N joint BV., which, by the way, is making 10,000 E-N joints a day out of its manufacturing facilities in Shenzhen, China says, “Holland is well known in the world for its tolerant and liberal attitude toward soft drugs, and the introduction of this new product clearly makes a statement. As long as you don’t bother or disturb other people and stay within the legal boundaries, all is well.”
He added: “Everyone should feel fine, because what we are doing is no crime.”
In a promotional video posted on YouTube, however, some comments were posing the question that is on everyone’s mind: without THC, what’s the point?
In response to one user, E-Njoint stated “our products are made for fun, but not to get you high.” Our products does [sic] not contain cannabis, but we are working on a cannabis flavor…”
Of course that answer satisfied absolutely no one. So the company tied this: “The purpose is to enjoy a fun product with 6 great flavors without cannabis, nicotine or tobacco… Just like you would enjoy a sisha or a regular waterpipe!”
On the firm’s Facebook page, E-Njoint BV says, “We distinguish ourselves by providing constant innovation and unique designs of electronic vaporizing products.”
However, much like the far more conspicuous vaporizer pen, users can reload a spent e-joint with concentrated forms of marijuana oils to get high.
E-Njoint BV is currently in negotiations with medical cannabis company Tikun Olam to see if their e-joint can be marketed as a health product, in what could likely be an attempt to capitalize on the legalization wave sweeping through the US.
