Best Vaporizers For Weed
You might already be familiar with vaporizers, but for those who aren’t, a vaporizer is a device which heats your weed or concentrate up just enough to vaporize the cannabinoids you want, without combusting the plant material.
Like edibles, this is healthier than smoking, because you are not getting the byproducts associated with burning the weed, such as tar.
They also generally smell less, making them ideal for stealthy use. Today I’ll go over what the best vaporizers for weed are, whether you want a portable, table-top, or concentrate vape.
The Best Portable Vaporizers
Portable vaporizers have a few key characteristics. One, obviously, is being small enough to be portable. They are all usable away from a power outlet, but generally pack less of a punch than a desktop vape.
One great portable vaporizer is the Magic Flight Launch Box.
The name may sound a bit kooky, but this is an excellent choice for a first vape.
The box is powered by a rechargeable nimh battery, which is the same size as a AA. Stealth wise, this is about as good as you can get. I have never seen a smaller vaporizer than the Launch Box. It will take a little bit of time to get used to the battery, but once you do you can use this pretty much anywhere.
Best of all, you get a lifetime warranty. Having owned one of these for years, I can tell you they have some of the best customer service around.
The Pax Portable Vaporizer for Weed
Another great option is the Pax. While bigger than the Launch Box, the Pax does give bigger hits, and is much sleeker looking in comparison.
This vape is simpler to operate than the Launch Box, but also requires slightly more cleaning and other maintenance, such as one piece that requires oiling.
All that said, the Pax is definitely better when in a group environment than the Launch Box. This is because while the Launch Box requires the battery to be used for each hit, once the Pax is ready to go it can be passed around without needing to be powered up manually for each hit.
The Best Table-Top Vaporizer
If you have tried a portable vaporizer and didn’t feel it was enough, a good table-top vape can help.
Table-tops are more efficient than portables, and will definitely give bigger hits as well. The one drawback is these vapes need to be plugged in, severely limiting their portability.
The VapeXhale Cloud EVO
The VapeXhale Cloud EVO is one of the higher end vaporizers on the market right now.
The EVO is capable of producing huge clouds of vapor, all while maintaining smoothness and flavor by utilizing water filtration. It heats up in about 3 minutes, which is faster than most comparable vaporizers. The EVO is a sleek black, and is small enough to be hidden if needed.
The VapeXhale Cloud Evo is one of the most expensive vaporizers out there, as it should be. It costs anywhere between $500-800 depending on the package ordered. Check out the VapeXhale here.
The Volcano Vaporizer
If you like tried and tested products, you should look at the Volcano.
This is one of those classic vapes that will be around for a long time. Instead of sucking vapor from a straw like, as is the case with most vapes, the Volcano fills a bag with vapor that can then be removed and passed around.
These are an excellent choice for group sessions, as the Volcano combines the power of table-tops with some of the convenience that portables offer.
Best Concentrate Vaporizer
If you have looked for a vaporizer for concentrates, you’ve probably seen the many brands offering a pen style vaporizer. There is one that stands apart from the rest, and that is the Trippy Stix vaporizer. Unlike many other pens, the Stix is available in an assortment of beautiful colors. It boasts one of the fastest heat up times I have ever seen, at about five seconds. It is very easy to use and includes an auto shutoff safeguard to avoid hurting the battery. It does require some cleaning, but it is a minimal amount compared to keeping a rig clean.
There are many awesome vaporizers on the market; This is just the tip of the iceberg. When looking for others, just remember to buy from a reputable store or website, as counterfeit vapes are somewhat common and can be hazardous to your health. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is!
