If you smoke weed, you should be vaping that shizz – just like Snoop Dog and Wiz Khalifa
Plenty of people smoke weed these days. Loads, in fact. People, all across history, have used Marijuana in one form or another for things like getting high, contacting spirits or just kicking back after a long day at the office.
But did you know you can vape weed?
Regardless of your opinions on weed, if you don’t smoke it or condone it, that’s fine, we can all agree that those that do should be encouraged to do it in the safest way possible.
Vaping weed is the safest way to “smoke” pot available to pot enthusiasts in 2017. There are a plethora of mods and devices for doing it with too.
I’ve tried a good few in my time, but the vaporisers listed below are the best vaporisers for vaping weed or dry herbs around.
They vary in price, but the more expensive options, predictably, are the one’s that offer the best overall performance.
I own both the PAX 3 and DAVINCI IQ and they are both stunning devices. You can read more about these below, as well some other, cheaper options.
PAX 3 Dry Herb Vaporizer – AKA One of The Best Ways To Vape Weed PERIOD.

If you’re looking for the absolute MAC DADDY of dry herb vaporizers though… there really is only one name in the game, and that is the PAX 3, which is highly regarded as the best performing dry herb vaporizer on the planet.

Building on from the momentum established by the PAX 2, the PAX 3, while similar looking, has been re-designed from the ground up to include more power, better heat-up time, wider support via a phone app, and, best of all, twice the power of its predecessor.

Not only is this one of the best-looking mods on the planet, decked out in black and featuring a gorgeous, easy to read display, it also produces awesome vapor and great flavour.
Snoop Dog even liked Grenco’s mods so much that he worked with them to develop is own line of vaping mods.
The Snoop Dogg G Pen Ground Material Vape Mod

The Snoop Dogg G Pen Ground Material is the most popular and the one Mr. Dogg uses himself. This mod is a freaking revelation; if you’ve never vaped weed before, this device will blow your mind.
“What’s fly about the vaporizer movement is that it’s clean and convenient. Launching my custom G Pen is a great way to kick off the business partnership with Grenco Science,”
said Snoop Dogg.
I had a couple of friends test this one and the G-Pen Elite out and they were blown away by the results.
My brother used the G-Pen Elite for a few months and said it completely changed his life. The only reason he still ingested tobacco was when he smoked weed. Since using the G-Pen Elite, he hasn’t touched tobacco since.
And it ain’t just those guys, either. You can see just how popular the G-Pen and Snoop Dogg G-Pen are on the Grenco Science website, which hosts live reviews from users all over the world.
Basically, if you’re interested in vaping weed, these are the only mods you need to be looking at. Period.
I mean, if it’s good enough for Snoop Dogg…
Vaping Weed is WAY Healthier Than Smoking Weed
And vaping weed, like vaping in general, is a HELL of a lot better for you. Science, as always, is on hand to support this claim as well:
“Cannabis smoking can create respiratory problems. Vaporizers heat cannabis to release active cannabinoids, but remain cool enough to avoid the smoke and toxins associated with combustion. Vaporized cannabis should create fewer respiratory symptoms than smoked cannabis.
We examined self-reported respiratory symptoms in participants who ranged in cigarette and cannabis use. Data from a large Internet sample revealed that the use of a vaporizer predicted fewer respiratory symptoms even when age, sex, cigarette smoking, and amount of cannabis used were taken into account. Age, sex, cigarettes, and amount of cannabis also had significant effects.
The number of cigarettes smoked and amount of cannabis used interacted to create worse respiratory problems. A significant interaction revealed that the impact of a vaporizer was larger as the amount of cannabis used increased. These data suggest that the safety of cannabis can increase with the use of a vaporizer. Regular users of joints, blunts, pipes, and water pipes might decrease respiratory symptoms by switching to a vaporizer.”
It’s not just for marijuana, though. You can put all kinds of dried herbs into these devices. Even tobacco. And they work in a very similar fashion to normal vaping: you hit a button and the contents of the tank is heated — either by conduction or convection — and this then turns the dried goods into vapor, which you inhale.
There are A TON of dry-herb vaporisers out there but one of the most well known brands, likely because it is endorsed and used by Snoop Dog, is the G Pen. If you’re after the best overall performance, great design and awesome features you NEED to go for the G Pen ELITE, as it is just about the best one we have ever tested.
Other Options: Different Strokes For Difference Folks
There’s a whole bunch of dry herb vaping products available out there, and all of them do different things, which means before you commit to one you need to know what you’re vaping needs are beforehand: do you want to vape weed, dried herbs, oils, ejuice or all of the above?
You can pick up multifunction weed pen vaporisers that let you switch between waxy concentrates and dry herbs, as well as dedicated marijuana vaporiser pen products that feature chambers for vaping essential oils and e-juice.
