2014 Buying Guide

This section is like a vaporizer buying guide and was just updated December 2014. I call it a guide because each vape review in the series has large, high-res and detailed pictures of each vaporizer along with instructions and tips on how to use it with medical cannabis.

Each review is written from my personal experience and many hours of hands-on testing. I try to shoot clear photography showing how each vaporizer is used with medical cannabis so you get a good understanding of what it's like to use over time, not just a first impression by someone who doesn't know what they're talking about. I am fortunate to live in San Francisco and where I am a legal medical marijuana user and patient. I fully converted from smoking weed to vaporizing my medical marijuana and now I'm on a mission to help you.

My vapes are part review and part user-guides. After reading my reviews you’ll know:

We always include specs on battery life, charging times as well as the warranty info in each review.

Yes, some vaporizers smell more than others, and I try to note little details like this. You learn about these tips and tricks only after using dozens of different vaporizers in hundreds of situations. If you browse around on my site long enough you'll learn lots of useful stuff, like the difference between sativa vs indica or the best temperature to vaporize medical marijuana to reduce inflammation.
