Looking for the ultimate stoner gear right now?
If you get to your 20s, 30s or 40s and you still enjoy the herb, you’re in good company.
Millions of people regularly smoke pot. And it’s not just dudes that live in their parents’ basements either.
You got plenty of talented guys and gals that use weed for improving their creativity – as well as chilling too.
The rise of legal marijuana and micro-dosing in the US, and elsewhere, has created a modern utopia for pot lovers.
Go back 10 years and imagine that one day, in the not too distant future, you’d be able to LEGALLY buy pot in the US?
But Here’s The Thing… You Shouldn’t Be Smoking Pot
That’s a bad idea.
Firstly, smoking is terrible for you.
And second, there are WAY better ways to enjoy pot these days.
And, no… I’m not talking about eating it, either – that’s a whole other kettle of fish!
Vaporizers – AKA The Ultimate Stoner Gear
When it comes to vaporizers, you have a TON of choice.
You have ultra-portable devices like the ones from PAX and DaVinci which are ideal for when you’re on the go – or at a party.
But, if you’re after PURE horse-power you simply cannot beat a desktop-style vaporizer.
And the long-standing king of the hill in this field is the Volcano Vaporizer – it is a monster!
And how it works is super cool too…
You basically heat up the weed and it sends the vapor into a ballon. You might have seen it used in Super High Me, the Netflix documentary.
Either way, it makes A LOT of vapor and you can use the valve on the ballon to take little hits (and then save the rest for later).
The benefit of the Volcano vaporizer is that you plug it into the mains, so you don’t have to worry about it running out of juice.
The downside, however, is that you can’t really take it with you on a picnic or to a house party at your cousins and stealthily use it in the toilets.
Ideally – if you’re cash-flush and fond of pot and keeping your lungs in decent shape – you’d have both: the Volcano for at home, and the PAX for on the move.
Joints vs. Vapes
We know smoking is bad.
That’s a fact.
We also know that vaporizing materials – things like E Juice or Cannabis – removes 95% of the toxins.
This is a good thing.
Both for your lungs and your health.
But the benefits don’t stop there – especially in the context of cannabis.
Multiple studies have now shown that vaporizing cannabis yields better results, more potency, and a cleaner high.
Why’s that? Simple: no toxins or tobacco.[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]When you’re smoking, you immediately destroy 50 percent of the cannabinoids upon combustion. You lose another 15-20 percent of these medical compounds due to smoke burn off. That’s a very low-efficiency rate. Maybe the lowest for cannabis delivery methods – GreenFlower.[/perfectpullquote]
So, yeah… vaporizers are cleaner, more efficient, and better for your health.
If you’re a pothead and you’re still smoking, or burning your cannabis, perhaps it is time you switched up to a vaporizer.
Desktop vs Portable Vaporizers
There is a difference, and it’s kind of a big deal.
The first is portability: a vaporizer like the DaVinci IQ fits in your pocket and can go anywhere with you.
A desktop vaporizer like the Volcano vaporizer cannot.
But you will get a TON more performance from the Volcano, as it is bigger and connects to your mains, voiding any issues about battery life and power.
So what you lost in portability you gain in power, flavor, and potency.
The other thing is the price: the Volcano vaporizer costs $599, while the PAX and DaVinci IQ retail for $274.
In fact, you can grab the PAX 2 for even less – around $150!
Pros & Cons
As with most things in life, there are good and bad aspects to each type of vaporizer.
With an ultra-portable vaporizer like a PAX, the thing that will annoy most is battery life – you only get a few hours.
In the context of the Volcano, it’s the size of it that will cause most issues.
It’s not exactly travel-ready.
This is why I said it’s a good idea to have both types (funds allowing, obviously). That way you get the best of both worlds.
If you can’t do that (like most people), you just need to figure out what’s most important to you?
✔ Battery Life
Vaporizers aren’t cheap.
And it pays to invest in a decent one, as cheaper units just aren’t anyway near as good.
I’ve used a bunch of “cheap” vaporizers and comparing them to the DaVinci IQ or the PAX 3 is like comparing a Hyundai to a top of the line Mercedes or BMW.
It’s night and day, basically.
If you’re after the ultimate stoner gear you need to be looking at PAX or DaVinci.
What Vaporizers Do I Use?
I have the PAX and DaVinci IQ. These are my main, go-to vaporizers. The ones I use most.
Out of the two, I generally prefer the DaVinci IQ – it looks better and it has a removable battery.
Both are extremely close when it comes to overall performance and vapor production, however.
And then there’s the Volcano vaporizer which is truly a monster.
It’s great for when you got people over or you want to vape weed in the best possible way.
Is it for everyone? Hell no! It’s very expensive and is really only for the most serious of pot users. Pros, if you will!
99.9% of users will be just fine with an ultra-portable like the PAX 3 or DaVinci IQ.
If you want to up your game, however, the next logical step from here is the Volcano Vaporizer – if you can stomach the $599 price tag!
It is very much the top of the food chain when it comes to vaporizers.
