Why we love it: The Volcano from the German manufacturer Storz & Bickel is known as the ultimate convection vaporizer. Using heated forced air, the volcano evenly vaporizes herb and pushes the vapour into a balloon that can then be detached and easily inhaled from. The Volcano has a manually controlled heating dial to customize your experience, and Storz & Bickel even offer liquid pads (sold separately) to make the device compatible with waxes and oils.
Why we love it: The Yocan Evolve Plus wax vaporizer is a sleek pen-style device with an 1100mAh battery. With direct access to the quartz or ceramic heating coil and a built-in silicone storage jar, adding wax to the device is simple. The Evolve Plus is a fantastic option for those looking for an on-the-go dab pen.
Why we love it: The Prohibited 5th Degree brings the convenience of pod-style vaping to marijuana vaporizers. With its selection of replaceable pods and an intelligent battery that senses and adjusts to each variety, the 5th Degree allows for use with both flower and concentrates. The 5th Degree offers easy magnetic USB charging, and is small and lightweight enough to carry around with you. And, if you’re so inclined, Prohibited also offers dabber and e-rig attachments for even more functionality.
Why we love it: Designed in Canada, the Utillian 721 offers all of the features of the 720 but with increased battery life. The 721 can be used with both dry herb and concentrates, giving it a strong advantage over many other vaporizer models. It also uses convection heating, making it a less expensive competitor to higher-end brands like Storz & Bickel. The Utillian 721 provides 90 minutes of continuous battery life, and eight preset heat settings, each with a five degree boost for extra intensity. Its easy-to-use single-button operation system makes the 721 a convenient, yet functional option for beginners.
Why we love it: The Arizer Air II is a vaporizer with the best of both worlds. A hybrid of convection and conduction, the Air II provides a rapid heat up in addition to even vaporization. It’s powered by a removable 18650 battery to provide 90 minutes of continuous use, but an external charger can be used to charge any additional cells (not included) to maximize the battery life of the device. The temperature of the Air II can be adjusted manually and is displayed on an OLED screen. The herb bowl/mouthpiece combo is a glass stem that cools the vapour and is easy to clean.
