Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge

written by Samuel Popejoy

Artizen has made a name for itself both inside and outside of the Washington recreational cannabis industry. As one of the most acclaimed brands in the WA market, I was excited to try this ultra-distilled Artizen Breathwork cartridge.

My cart didn’t look anything like the pictures online, however, and I found myself wondering how, exactly, Artizen made their distillate so pure. For what it’s worth, my Breathwork cartridge had strong effects, but based on the obvious flaws with the product, a $42 price tag for this gram is nothing short of absurd.

Product Gallery

I had high expectations of my Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge. I wouldn’t say I was exactly disappointed, but I am minorly concerned.

Through the plastic window of my Breathwork package, I could see that the components of my cartridge had separated. Up at the top of the cartridge was a crust of brown goo, underneath which was an almost full-gram sea of crystal-clear distillate.

Cannabis extraction is evolving all the time. Maybe there are extraction methods I’m not aware of.

In my experience, however, cart separation like this is usually due to the addition of filler ingredients or ultra-purification of distillate. When over-purified, cannabis extract no longer offers the entourage effect, and it often has a harsh taste.

Docking points primarily on price and effects, I give the Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge an overall score of 3.8 out of 5.

  • Super-easy curbside pickup experience at Cannabis & Glass in Liberty Lake, WA
  • Cart was strangely separated
  • Reasonably mild licorice flavor
  • Very smooth texture
  • Unremarkable hybrid effects
  • Overpriced only because distillate was separated
  • Activated quickly and felt like an average hybrid vape
  • Designed to be vaped at high heat

Convenience

Picking up my Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge at Cannabis & Glass was a breeze as always. C&G is one of only a handful of East Spokane dispensaries to offer curbside pickup, which is great for someone like me who has a bad habit of getting in fights with people over face masks.

I wasn’t all too impressed, however, by the packaging my cartridge came in. Sure, it was easy to open, but that average, ultra-cheap plastic vape cartridge packaging will never be truly worthy of commendation.

There weren’t any problems getting my cartridge connected to my battery, however. It wasn’t clogged, and I was able to take a hit instantly.

  • Convenient curbside pickup experience at Cannabis & Glass
  • Cheap, bottom-tier packaging doesn’t do Breathwork any favors
  • Easy to connect cart and start vaping

Flavor Profile

Breathwork is a strain Artizen bred itself. Usually offered in flower form, Artizen has also packaged this popular strain into vape cartridges.

I can’t say the flavor of Breathwork impressed me to any great degree. According to Artizen’s website, this strain is a “powerful hybrid between Mendo Breath x Grateful Breath,” so this strain’s genetics seem complicated to say the least.

Artizen describes Breathwork’s flavor as “[h]erbal with undercurrents of berries.” I just tasted licorice, however, and very faintly. It appears Artizen used a variety of different hydrocarbons, including BHO and propane, to make its Breathwork cartridges, which may have negatively impacted their flavor.

  • Generic flavor profile
  • Faint hints of licorice
  • Very smooth texture

Activation Time

I noticed the effects of my Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge instantly. I was able to get a deep, full hit on my first try due to the ultra-smooth texture of Breathwork.

Texture is truly the diamond in the rough when it comes to this Artizen vape cart. My cartridge might have had icky brown goo on the top and tasted bland, but at least the vapor it produced was easy to get down.

  • Effects activated quickly
  • Taking deep hits is easy due to Breathwork’s smooth texture

Effects & Duration

I can’t say much about the effects of my Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge. It certainly contained THC, and I definitely got high.

What terpenes were present, however, didn’t seem to augment the effects of my Breathwork cartridge considerably. I enjoyed a slightly disappointing experience that was more similar to the undifferentiated effects of consuming edibles than the rich, full, and flavorful experience that vaping cannabis concentrate is supposed to be.

  • Passable effects
  • They lasted for more than 60 minutes
  • No noticeable strain-specific effects

Price

Isn’t 2 out of 5 stars a little harsh? Maybe, but this section is really more about value than it is about the price I paid at the dispensary.

For $42, you expect to get a high-quality, tasty vape cartridge that will more than get the job done. What I got instead was a questionable cartridge that became even more concerning the more I looked into Artizen and this brand’s peculiar definitions of “organic” and “pesticide-free.”

As a result, I have to dock this cartridge on price even more than I would have based on its overall quality and value. There’s something genuinely wrong with my Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge, which immediately causes its value to plummet.

  • 2 out of 5 stars might seem unreasonable
  • Consider, however, the value Artizen withholds by making its cartridges questionable

Best Dosage

The Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge is very highly concentrated (80%+ THC), so you’ll need to use less of this concentrate than you would when vaping live resin or another lower-potency extract type.

I’d say 1-2 hits every 1-2 hours would be more than sufficient with the Artizen Breathwork cartridge.

Target Audience

Artizen’s products are geared toward relatively uneducated cannabis consumers who don’t want to spend too much to get high. Breathwork is about as generic as it gets when it comes to cannabis strains, further cementing this Artizen cartridge’s status as an entry-level cartridge that you’re probably better off not asking too much about.

About the Product

Based in Lacey, Washington, Artizen is one of the state’s largest non-Seattle cannabis producers. Positioning itself as a mainstream, affordable brand, Artizen skips the bells and whistles while still investing heavily in customer education and a robust, impressive web presence.

As something of a cannabis connoisseur, I’m not satisfied with Artizen’s level of quality. This producer is undeniably a big name in Washington cannabis, however, and I can certainly see the important role Breathwork and other Artizen products play in the state’s recreational cannabis market.

Artizen Breathwork 1g Distillate Vape Cartridge FAQ

Have any more questions about this Breathwork cartridge by Artizen?

1. Is Artizen pesticide-free?

That’s a really good question. Artizen’s website has an entire (and very long) page all about pesticides in cannabis products.

Throughout the text, Artizen takes a defensive posture and tries to gaslight consumers into thinking “pesticide-free” doesn’t mean anything. While Artizen doesn’t come right out and say it, the entire context of this page makes it look like this producer does, indeed, use chemical pesticides on its cannabis.

2. Is Artizen a good brand?

Artizen offers medium-tier cannabis products for a reasonable price. Are Artizen products the epitome of top-tier cannabis? That’s a definitive “no.”

All the same, Artizen might be up your alley if you’re looking for a deal on cannabis flower or vapes. It helps if the idea of residual pesticides doesn’t worry you all that much.
