    Default Dry herb vaporizer?

    I guess kind of health related but is anyone using a dry herb vaporizer and have recommendations (what model to buy, differences, things to avoid)? I donít even know where to start.

    Been using a Pax 3 for two years. Highly recommended!

    Nothing beats it... apple of the market. But comes with that price tag too... has an accelerometer in it too and games

    Not overly efficient though... for efficiency the magic flight is amazing, but takes a while to figure it out as itís very manual

    Arizer air 2 is my go to portable vaporizer. No complaints and does the job really well!

    I have a Pax3, I really enjoy the discreteness of it and the technology behind it

    Pax 3 is great, but being discrete has its drawbacks. It's the best in terms of build quality and technology, but in terms of vapor quality there are better options. Depends what you're looking for really. I find my cheaper $200 vaporizer has its place just as my pax does. Being a conduction vaporizer, the pax requires a lot of cleaning, and is picky in terms packing (needs to be finely grinded and packed tightly). Convection vapes are more forgiving in how you pack them. In terms of vapor quality only, the Mighty is at the top of the list. It's one of the very few vaporizers that heat via conduction and convection both. However for a $500 vaporizer, it feels very cheap and is quite bulky. If it's your first vape, I'd definitely start with a cheap one ~$200

    My buddies always recommend Arizer solo - its just been around a while and is super durable/ reliable. Although I don't think it is the most discrete thing to carry around.. i.e. better for home.

    I was going to buy this one but then my other friend gave me a g-pen elite for free. This one is average but can't beat free!

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. I’m thinking to start out my order from most important to least would be:

    ease of use-> price -> functionality -> discreteness

    Probably looking to spend in the 200-250 ish range for my first one.

    Also do you guys order online or do you find shops have ok pricing/selection?

    When I was looking online always seemed better, but that could just be my experience.

    I got the PAXII years back locally when the headshop in deerrun had a “back to school” sale... $300 out the door. The 2 is great also if you can find one somewhere on clearance

    Volcano for home, Mighty for portable. Not that I would know anything about that.

    Why are people still vaporizing dry herb though when you can get CO2 extracted cartridges? So much more convenient.

    Ah you’re going to have to school me a bit on that, with the c02 cartridges do you buy cartridges prefilled with canabis oil or something like that?

    Yeah, they are .5ml - 1ml cartridges that use CO2 extracted oil. You can either buy them pre-filled, or you can buy the CO2 oil to inject into the cartridge. The vaporizers that receive the cartridge are also only $10-$40. I've tried just about everything excluding suppositories and they are the best delivery system IMO.

    CO2 extract would only be available from grey market still

    I still prefer dry herb... you lose at lot of the cannabinoids with the extractions as the whole idea is to try and isolate just the thc

    Also using a mighty medic. I believe itís the exact same as a mighty, but it has a different model number and is approved by health Canada as a ďmedical deviceĒ, so you can use it as a medical expense on your taxes.

    Pros: amazing battery life, adjustable temperature (to the degree), good vapour, good cartridge system including a magazine for them, made in Germany (store & Bickel same company that makes the volcano)

    Cons: price (around $500), not very discreet/portable

    If you can stomach the price and donít need discreetness/need to fit it in your pocket then I would highly recommend it. Personally I only use it in and around the house so it works for me

    Yup, loss of terpenes is the biggest drawback with thc distillate. I find the high is different and much shorter lasting. Also destroys my tolerance...After a few days in a row of vaping distillate, straight herb doesn’t do anything

    Convenience factor can’t be beat tho

    Yea that is another thing I should have mentioned, I want to be able to get everything completely mainstream and no legality grey areas.

    Couple of months and you'll be able to purchase them.

    Somebody told me yesterday the Alberta cannabis website is now offering THC pills?

    I use the Davinci IQ and love it. Best vape I've used yet.
