    Not one mention of Mighty/Crafty. Interesting.

    • Jannell Garcia

      Thats what I thought as well. The Crafty is by far my favorite!

  • Janine

    Thank you for comparing and sharing

  • ChallengePrivilege

    The technology might be nice, but the prices remain a predatory obscenity, and they smack of price fixing, i.m.h.o. I have a Pax2 that I was lucky to find for half-off at a year-end sale at my local dispensary, and am very pleased with it (always use it at the highest temp setting with leaf). Given the way too high replacement value, however (Pax3 is now over $300), I tend not to take it out of the house, for fear of losing it. For outdoors and away from home, I like oil pen vaporizers for their discretion, effectiveness and convenience.

    OUCH!! god, the prices on your reco’s!! Did someone have to pay you to pick THOSE portables? If anyone spends more than $25-50 on a portable then you are just peeing away your money. On your next foray out, go to a less economically advantaged neighborhood cannabis shop and pick up an affordable portable for $35-45. It will last you 3-5 years, battery included, if you take care of it and follow the directions on cleaning the unit and charging the battery.

    • Janine

      If that’s true about your comment regarding portables could you please suggest the best ones to invest in. Thank you for your time

    • Janine

      What can you tell me in the direction of purchasing the best pipe for oils ? I was looking and there are so many. The glass ones look the best

  • Wuggy Ump

    I started out with the Magic Flight, but then tried out a Boundless CFX, let me tell you, the CFX is way better. If you shop around they can be had for around $130. One thing also with the CFX, if you do the *very* simple screen mod, it is even better.

    Do the dry herb vaporizers create smoke as a traditional bong or pipe does?

  • sasha

    Thanks for the great reviews! I’m definitely interested in the Hydrology 9, I have the Pax 2, which I find the draw to be really slow on and I’m trying to go back to flower after using the pens primarly. While the pens are convienient, they are so expensive and I’m not sure they are healthy for you! I’m sticking with leaf…

  • Norman Poisson

    With vape cigs the smoke has no smell. Is it the same with these?

  • Neil Alexander

    I am new to smoking bud/flower. I have only smoked using the small glass pipe the dispensary gave me and my mouth, throat and sinuses are not happy with all the particulates. Would a dry bud vaporizer provide a cleaner/smoother smoke than my using a water filled bong device? Excuse my ignorance. Thank you.

  • viper643

    Hannah should update this article. Many more LOWER cost units available nowadays. Herb vaporizers with adjustable temps are perfect for enjoying the range of terpene flavors.

  • I am looking for herbal vaporizer pen. I need the portable vaporizer to carry outside. I have seen people using vitamin B12 vape pen. I also need something like that. Nicotine free and herbal. Can I use cannabis flower vape as smoking any other vape pen? That type of smoke which elevate the mood and gives relief to anxiety, stress etc
