DynaVap vaporizer - the one hitter
The DynaVap vaporizer is one of our favorite vapes to recommend to smokers who want to transition, but retain the classic feel of a traditional cigarette or one-hitter. This pen-shaped vape feels and almost works like one. Hold the vape in one hand and heat it up with a torch or lighter. When you hear the click, hit it as many times as you want until it clicks again. Take gentle sips and enjoy light, flavorful hits, or push it to the brink of combustion and finish it off in one huff, like a true one-hitter.
The DynaVap M’s mouthpiece tapers down to mate with 10mm female attachments, without an accessory!
Desktop vaporizers are better for our heavy smokers who don’t care to walk around with it. These vaporizers ditch the chargers for unrivaled power, open airflow, and massive bowls for the thickest sessions around.
Arizer XQ2 - the best bang for your buck
The Arizer XQ2 is the best bang for your buck desktop vaporizer. Its arsenal of accessories includes a large bowl for massive clouds, with the ability to relax with it hookah-style or walk around with a bag full of vapor. Full convection heat and a pure vapor path that sits away from the heating element keeps your vapor clean with zero waste in between hits. Don’t forget to program the remote once you find your favorite temperature settings. For the transitioning smoker that wants a strictly at-home unit, the Arizer XQ2 vaporizer should not be missed.
Grab an extra Arizer Elbow Adapter to hook it up to a bubbler! Just attach one end of the whip to the vape and the other to your bubbler.
Check out the Arizer Solo 2 for that signature Arizer quality in a portable form.
Volcano Hybrid - the biggest hitter
The Volcano Hybrid is the best choice for the thickest, most potent hits. Smokers will appreciate its massive half-gram heating chamber, precise temperature control, and bag or whip capabilities. Its mix of conduction and convection heat produces hits that are full of terpene flavor, but dense enough to satisfy the heaviest hitters out there. Blow up a bag and walk around the house with it, or grab the whip and take down fan-assisted hits for the hardest draw. It also comes with a stainless steel mesh pad for concentrate sessions that satisfy. If you want the best of the best from a high quality desktop vape, and price tags don’t scare you, the Volcano Hybrid is the clear winner.
The Volcano Hybrid can hook up to your glass rig as well with Arizer Elbow Adapter! Just attach one end of the whip to the vape and the other to your bubbler.

Best vapes for quitting smoking: FAQs
What can I replace smoking with?
Vaporizing! Dry herb vape devices deliver everything you seek from smoking, without the harmful toxins and byproducts. You'll use fewer herbs with more potency. Save money and experience even more from your loose leaf material (like CBD) with a dry herb vaporizer.
Do vape pens help you quit smoking?
Yes! Vape pens are healthier, taste better, and can supply different effects. Whether you want to quit for health reasons, money, or all of the above, vaping products can help you reach your goals. Dry herb vaporizers take you even closer to the plant. They vaporize loose leaf herbs instead of concentrates. There’s no better way to taste your herbs exactly as they were meant to taste.

How long does it take to feel better after quitting smoking?
It can take a couple weeks to fully cleanse your body from smoking and its side effects. You may wake up the next day groggy, with a nasty cough and strong cravings, but these symptoms will subside as time goes on. Commit and take a two-week break from smoke for the best results.
