By Joseph Collins
Cannabis consumers have a variety of ways to ingest their products. Many choose the old-school way of rolling a joint or packing some flowers into a bong or a bowl. Others may choose the cannabis-infused edible route to provide long-lasting relief from what ails them. However, there is one other method that a majority of cannabis consumers are turning towards.
That venue is vaping. Vaping not only provides what some consider to be a healthier An alternative to smoking, it is also stealtheir and provides more of the beneficial cannabinoids than smoking alone. You can choose to buy prefilled concentrate cartridges at an online retailer like TheAmsterdam, but you still need a device to turn the oil or flower into vapor.
Read on to discover some of the best portable vaporizers available on the market and choose your best portable vaporizer accordingly.
#1. The Mighty by Storz and Bickel
The Mighty has been available for a few years now, but Storz and Bickel are well known in the industry for providing the absolute best in vaporizers. The vapor quality is on par with its famous desktop vaporizer, the Volcano.
Not only is the vapor quality excellent, but there's also an LED screen with easy up and down buttons to control the temperature. It also has an excellent battery life which was updated in 2018 to have 20% more battery life.
The Mighty is a dry herb vaporizer that might set you back a bit more than other vaporizers, but you get the quality you're paying for in this vape.
#2. The Airizer Solo 2
An improvement on the classic Airizer design, the Airizer 2 increased airflow, added a digital display, and precise temperature control. The battery life is stellar – it can go for about 3 hours before needing a charge. It also heats up in about 20 seconds, which is especially helpful if you're in a rush to get your medicine.
Like the Mighty, the Airizer Solo 2 is a dry herb vaporizer, but it can fit in your pocket and makes a great on-the-go vape.
#3. The DaVinci IQ
Building upon the successes of the original DaVinci and the DaVinci Ascent, the IQ is a sleek and versatile dry herb vape that provides phenomenal flavor. The design is sleek and sexy and lightweight, all pluses for those that need a truly on-the-go device.
When it comes to cooling the vapor, the DaVinci has three built-in cooling mechanisms that ensure a cool hit even at high temperatures. A ceramic oven means quality vapor production and a 'flavor chamber' allows you to vape dry herbs without having to grind it first.
#4. The Pax 3
Hands down, the best thing about Pax 3 is its size. It has a weight of 93 grams, which is amazing considering the technology packed into this little vaporizer. It also features a Bluetooth app that allows for unique vaping profiles depending on your preference.
But wait! There's more! The Pax 3 heats up in no time at all, requiring only 15-20 seconds. Lip-sensing technology can tell when you are using the vape. Battery life is improved with the Pax 3 as well. It can go for about 90 minutes before needing a recharge.
Another plus to the Pax 3 is that it can be used with both dry herbs and concentrates. This means it's truly and all-in-one device.
#5. X-Max Starry
For the budget-conscious, the X-Max Starry is one of the cheapest dry herb vaporizers available. However, it doesn't perform like a cheap vape. For beginners and veterans alike, the X-Max Starry is super portable for on-the-go vaping.
For a small unit, it heats up in about 20 to 30 seconds. It also offers a spectrum of available temperatures and an OLED display. It also has a battery life longevity of about 80 minutes, but the batteries are replaceable, allowing you to keep extra for longer excursions.
There are a number of portable vaporizers out on the market. There are vaporizers for those who prefer dry herb and vaporizers for concentrates. There are even some all-in- one unit for those that use both. Choosing the right one for you might take some time, but there's a world of options out there.
