Best Vaporizer

I have been smoking for some awhile and love to use a few of my vaporizers from time to time. I love the taste, but the time it takes and how dry it makes my throat feel makes me sway to towards smoking. But with smoking comes a cough, which nobody enjoys. So I have been looking around for a new vaporizer and doing my research on some products, but before I purchase anything I wanted to have some more input from people rather than companies.

I currently own a digital box/whip vaporizer with a hands free glass joints and a vaporgenie. The problem with the box setup is that the user has to pull, and it is hard to get a huge rip without a lot of effort. Also, the vapor is hot and does not cool much before it enters the user. This is not a vaporizer that could replace smoking for me. The genie is awesome, but I want something better that can cool the vapor.



I have looked at the volcano, Vapir One, Vapezilla, and pretty much every other vaporizer out there. However none of them are exactly what I am looking for. For instance, the heating element used in the Volcano and how the vapor sits in a bag. Or with a whip, the vapor is hot and you have to pull, which is usually a lot of effort for a little hit. Well, I think I finally found one that can do what I am looking for. Has anybody on here used a heat gun to vaporize? You can use a bong you already own with a special bowl, add ice for cooling or even water if you please.

I found a deal for one that is not too expensive,
https://www.gotvape.com/offers/gun_bowl_offer.php

There are some better heat guns and kits, but the get a little pricey. The Vriptech is an example of this. However their website was very helpful, maybe some of you would like to check out this article:

https://www.vriptech.com/comp.htm



So, should I buy the digital heat gun or would I be wasting my money and just go back to smoking? I want a vape that can provide big amounts a vapor. I would imagine using a heat gun and a glass bong with their special bowls would allow me to get some pretty big and tasty vape hits. If anyone has had any experience with these please feel free to provide some insight for me.

The heat gun with glass bong is a bit too much unnecessary work to get a clean smoking experience - not to mention the many dangers it encompasses (broken bowl pieces, accidental burns in general smoking area, touching heat gun or knocking it over, etc..).

you must have the 2nd generation vaporgenie, cause i have the 1st & it is nothing more than a pita, talk about a work-out to get a decent hit, that is if you can keep from overheating the herb !

In 2004 I bought a Vapir one and it was rubbish. I thought vaps were awful, fiddly, takes lots of time, plugged into the wall etc.

So I smoke and have alway smoked lots of joints. I use cannabis to treat anxiety and depression, which lead to lot's of joints. Recently I tried a volcano at a mates house and was very impressed. So much so I went out and bought one myself.

It's really simple to use, takes a minute or two to heat up, and I love the balloons! No longer confined to my smoking room when I want to medicate, I'm now free to wander around the house with my bag of vap. The taste is awesome too and that pesky cough has gone.

So for me, it's a big thumbs up for the Volcano (but there might be cheaper models out there that are just as good, I just haven't tried them so I can't comment).

I have a feeling the vapezilla would be too much like the box/whip I have now. Have you actually used the vapezilla? I want something that heats the bud to release the vapors rather then me having to pull on the herb. Also, you cannot cool the vapors with this product. Which is why I think a heat gun/bong for vape would be good. I'd rather deal with setting up a heat gun than deal with a cough from all the tar from smoking.

I'm not sure what generation it is, but the genie takes time to perfect and you have to take slow hits, using a small amount of bud. I like using it for a quick taste or hit, but not to use all night. For some it is easier than others. When attempting to have friends use it they usually give up before they get a proper hit. I want a vape where you dont have to learn how to hit it or hit it a certain way for it to work. Because most people I know like ease, and say "lets just smoke it". Well I want that ease in a vaporizer. I hope the heat gun/bong vaporizer provides it.

I'm sure people don't consider it the best but my Vapolution has never let me down. Cheap, easy to use and glass on glass. I just can't see myself dropping $500 on a Volcano however I have never used one yet .

Does anybody think the silver surfer is any good? I was thinking of getting this with the Ice chamber too cool?

Hi!

I have a Volcano and so far I'm happy with it. I guess the only thing that would make me change my mind was if it stopped working and the 5 year warranty didn't cover the fix up. But of course I don't expect that to happen

I've also tryed Vapir and Verdamper. The Verdamper is really good also, the Vapir did not convince me.

Good gardens!
