Now that you’ve been well versed as to how vaporizer pens work and operate, we wanted to review one of the best, and shockingly, most cost effective marijuana concentrate or dab vaporizers on the market to date. The Smooth 2 Loaded Vaporizer Gold (Wax and Oil Pen), sounds like tongue twister when you first say it out loud, but once you use it, you realize it’s one of the better vape pens for wax, oil, dabs, etc., that’s out there currently.
What Makes This Vaporizer Stand Out?
One thing that I find disconcerting from some vaporizers on the market today is the fact that they take FOREVER to use. Some require you to hold a button for five minutes, wait half an hour for the damn thing to load, or read a set of instructions that when you’re done reading, will have you thinking…..”WTF did I just read? I wanted to vape, not join N.A.S.A.” The great thing about this pen is that there is none of that. A matter of fact, the pen comes with barely any instructions at all and you kind of have to be in “the know” as to how the heating element works, because in the end, it’s the speed of the heating element that makes this pen stand out from the pack.
The Heating Element
If you’re like me, you like your vape pens to be quick and stealthy, especially when your blazing your dabs on the go. Unlike other concentrate vaporizers that can sometimes take minutes to heat up, this one heats up your dabs in less than a few seconds. All it takes is a double click from the vape pen’s button and you’re ready to inhale.
How to Use the Smooth 2 Loaded Vaporizer Gold (Wax & Oil Pen)
All and all, this is great pen at a surprisingly great price, but since it’s our first review we’ll give it a 9/10 instead of the 10/10 since we’ll be reviewing some more products for dabs.
Chances are you’ve heard of dabbing, and are reading this because you want to give dabbing a try. If you have no idea what a dab is and want to know more, please check out our last post, Dabs 101. Ok, So let’s get right to it. There are several ways to ‘do a dab’, but I’ll walk you through the most typical dabbing method.
Season the Nail
If you are using a titanium nail, you’ll first need to season the nail by torching it until it is red hot and then dunk it in cold water. Use tongs to dunk the nail and repeat the process 5 or 6 times. Now place the nail on the stem of your rig.
Heat the Nail
Heat the nail with a torch until it starts to glow. It is best to wait about twenty seconds for the nail to cool before you begin dabbing. This should give you enough time to prepare your dab.
Prepare your Dab
Scrape or scoop up a single dose of concentrate with your wand.
Take a Hit!
Slowly inhale the vapor from the mouthpiece of your pipe as you gently touch or ‘dab’ the concentrate to the top of your nail.
Cannabis concentrates are potent, and can be up to 90% THC. So, keep in mind a little goes a long way.
