The Beginner’s Guide to Quality Cannabis Vaporizers

If you are new to herbal vaporizers, finding your first may be a tougher endeavour than anticipated. With all the outlets and stores selling marijuana vaporizers coupled with all the new brands and models hitting the market , your first vaporizer is arguably the hardest one to purchase.


Other factors to consider such as price, portability, ease of use and quality become even more complicated when factoring in your reason for buying your first vaporizer – wanting a healthier method than smoking, treatment of a medical condition, and more discretion are just a few factors.


At To the Cloud Vapor Store, we want to make buying your first vaporizer easy and hassle free. We are the only retailer to offer a trial period on every vaporizer we sell and include lifetime exchanges, so you can always upgrade or try something else.
That being said, here is some advice we have on a beginner buying their first cannabis vaporizer.

Cost for Herbal Vaporizers

As with most things in life you get what you pay for. The best vaporizers are going to run you from $400 – $600. That said, it is completely feasible to find something that will deliver great vapor and do the job for your first vaporizer well under $200.


There are herbal vaporizers out there for under $100, but we would never endorse or promote any such device. These lower echelon vaporizers are constructed with inferior plastics that often melt over time. Besides posing a plethora of health issues, the vapor quality is low grade and when dealing with your first vaporizer the last thing we as vapor advocates want is for you to swear off vaporizing forever because of an inferior product.

Portable Herbal Vaporizers

We recommend the following herbal vaporizers for those on-the-go individuals seeking something that does the job.


G Pen Elite  – Grenco Science is a brand name that delivers quality, despite their low price. They just released the G Pen Elite, which really improves on older Grenco designs. The G Pen Elite has also been serialized to combat counterfeits. Being portable with a huge chamber and modern design make it a recommended buy for your first vaporizer. At $169 you won’t break the bank. With our trial period you can return it for a $120 dollar partial refund should the G Pen or vapor not be for you.

Other vaporizers for you to get your feet wet with in this price range include the Alfa Vaporizer by Goboof , the original PAX by Ploom (now Pax Labs), Arizer Air and the Davinci Ascent. It is very important to buy these vaporizers from a reputable vendor. The spread of counterfeits in this segment of the market are at their worst. Counterfeit vaporizers may also skew your opinion of vapor.

Desktop Herbal Vaporizers

You may want to consider a desktop vaporizer for your first if you don’t mind being confined to your residence. These units offer better quality vapor, but require a few more steps to use than a portable vape would.

The best economical desktops come from 7th Floor LLC, the makers of the following:

Silver Surfer Vaporizer

Silver Surfer Herbal Vaporizers

Da Buddha Vaporizer

Da Buddha Herbal Vaporizers

Life Saber Vaporizer

Light Saber Herbal Vaporizers

The 7th Floor Vaporizers are all similar and surprisingly simple in design. A durable build delivers the best vapor for desktops in the $200 price range. These really give you a feel for what a great vapor is. They all come with the whip or wand option, making set up and use a breeze. Another great option in this price range is the Arizer Extreme Q, at about half the price of the Volcano. The Arizer Extreme Q also boasts a whip and forced air bag option.


If you want to dive right in with your first herbal vaporizer, there are no substitutes to the products made by Storz & Bickel. Generally these are for those who spare no expense. They are the best vaporizers on the market today and their prices reflect this.
However, for the sake of this post, if you are on the fence about purchasing your first herbal vaporizer then the above mentioned starter units are the best option to give your vaping herbs a fair shot. These get the job done to a more than satisfactory degree, while being much more economical than other high end cannabis vaporizers on the market. Again, these starter units will give you a great introduction to a healthier way to consume and still quit smoking.
