Being a pothead in 2020 is complicated. Sure, getting high is great, but there are thousands of weed companies selling flower, edibles, sprays, and tinctures. There are hundreds of extract companies selling waxes, shatter, budder, and sauce. At this point, thousands of manufacturers also produce cannabis vape oils, cartridges, dry herb vapes — some that actually look like spaceships — and handheld dabbing vaporizers.
How the hell are people supposed to know what to consume when products hit the market at the same rate Forever 21 and H&M churn out new styles? It’s impossible to keep up. Also, how does one even consume products like rosin or wax, and does it always require a blowtorch? How do you know if a vape is safe?
If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions or found yourself overwhelmed and confused about what products to consume — you’re not alone. Even well-versed stoners find themselves in the same position, particularly when it comes to the spectrum of vaporizers on the market. From pens you buy in dispensaries to dry herb vapes to portable vaporizer dab rigs, the vaping sector of the cannabis industry offers a host of distinct experiences. Not only can you vape cannabis oil, but you can also vape nugs and concentrates. Neat, right?
After tons of research, we finally determined what companies offer the best vaporizing products on the market and broke it down into a digestible list. Because, ultimately, we’re not doing our job unless we’re giving you the details on how to live your best, most elevated life. So, we hope this accomplishes just that.
Extreme Q by Arizer:
The Extreme Q is a desktop dry herb vaporizer from outer space. Ok, just kidding — it was made on Earth. But, the futuristic vaporizer is well designed and user friendly to simplify your vaping experience. It’s also extremely easy to clean and sanitize.
The best part is the Extreme Q’s custom session settings. The ceramic heating warms up fast, you can choose what temp you want to burn your flower at, and it comes with a remote control. The quality is stellar, too, and at half of the price of competing desktop vaporizers. What more can you ask for?

ArGo by Arizer:
Go to the next level of portability with the ArGo handheld dry herb vaporizer. Made by the same people who designed the Extreme Q desktop vaporizer, the ArGo is unparalleled in style, quality, and convenience.
Vaping cannabis oil is not for everyone. Taking big hits out of a bag isn’t either. That’s why the compact ArGo vape is a dream come true: it’s versatile and you can take it pretty much anywhere. You don’t have to roll joints or bring a pipe and lighter with you when you go out. You can easily pack this nifty tool in a bag and be on your way.
Plus, dry herb vaping is arguably the safest method of consumption because you don’t inhale nearly the amount of plant-matter you would while smoking a joint or hitting a bong. Why not get stoned the healthy way?

It makes sense the Oura rocks. KandyPens is among the go-to brands for vaporizers, especially when it comes to smoking concentrates. The products they manufacture represent the highest level of vaporization in the business.
