I have been smoke-free now for exactly 12 months and it is up there with all of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only do I feel fitter and healthier, but vaping is saving me money too.
This is because when you smoke, you are literally burning a significant portion of your herbs. Vaping, however, does not provide enough heat for your cannabis to combust which means there are more cannabinoids and terpenes available for you to enjoy 🙂
Throughout 2018, I tried over a dozen dry herb vaporizers in the search for the best possible vaping experience and I think I have now whittled the choices down to my favourite two; a portable vaporizer and a desktop vaporizer.
Best Portable Vape
Pax 3 – Performs every little bit as good as it looks
Upon using the Pax 3 for the very first time I couldn’t help but be reminded of Apple’s range of premium products. The Pax is possibly the best looking cannabis vaporizer I have ever used. Its entire body is made from a single sheet of ionized aluminium and has a matte finish. This is a massive improvement from the reflective body of the Pax 2, which was liable to be covered with fingerprints.
However, the Pax 3 is more than just a pretty face everything about my vaping experience with this vape screams high performance and quality engineering.
3 things I loved:
- Intuitive – The Pax 3 is incredibly easy to use. Despite its plethora of options and extras, it can be fully controlled with ease with the single button that doubles as a mouthpiece. Also, because its powerful conduction oven produces vapour from your herbs so quickly it has a very gentle learning curve. It really is idiot proof.
- The App – I had assumed an app would be superfluous but I’m happy to admit I was wrong; it greatly enhances your vaping experience with the Pax 3. Not only does it give you the ability to fine tune your perfect temperature, but it also enables you to choose from one of 4 vaping styles too. You can decide whether to vape with boost, stealth, efficiency or enhanced flavour. The app gave me more control over my cannabis than any other vape I’ve used in the past.
- The Power – The Pax 3’s petite frame is deceiving. Inside the body, the engineers have managed to squeeze in a massive 3500mah battery. This is almost double the power of the Pax 2 and it shows. It now reaches the full temperature in just 20 seconds and provides enough juice for 10 full sessions.
Best Desktop Vaporizer
Volcano Digit – Still the best vaping experience money can buy
Nearly 2 decades old years old, The Volcano is the original desktop dry herb vaporizer and has a well-earned reputation for effortlessly creating thick, dense and flavourful clouds.
The latest edition of the Volcano is the Digit. It has has a small cosmetic uplift and added a LED but inside it performs just the same as the classic.
The Volcano still produces thick clouds from tiny amounts of cannabis is one of the only dry herb vaporizers that guarantee zero combustion which makes it a great option for medical cannabis users.
Instead of opting for speed like most other vaporizers, The Volcano prioritizes heating efficiency. This means that it can take 5 mins to fill a balloon but it is well worth the wait. It’ll be some of the tastiest, most effective clouds you’ll have ever experienced!
