I have been personally testing out several key varieties and methods of smoking marijuana, and I must say that after everything that I have sampled, the multi function vape pens are the most versatile products on the market. The basic premise is that they can vaporize any type of substance or material, from dried herbs to waxes and oils. Most of the other vape pens on the marijuana marketplace are only designed to heat up one type of substance, but these multi function pens can handle everything in the book. It’s great to have a product that isn’t held back by primitive design flaws, because then you can really find out the true benefits of the device by pushing it beyond what typical units are able to do consistently. The only major complaint with these multi function style pens is that they are seriously lacking in the dry herb department. Yes the wax chambers work fine, the oil cartridges work fine, but the herb attachments on these units simply don’t function as they were intended do. They always end up burning the herb to a crisp, so these are not true vaporizers, so please keep that in mind.
One of my favorite all time multi function vapor pens is the Vaporite Budy Pen Platinum. This pen does use the outdated heating coil design for heating up dry leaves, but it’s still one of the best all around units for having on hand when you are on the go throughout your daily routine. This is a super convenient vape pen that can easily be packed with any type of substance and then taken with you on the go. I have been using this particular pen for quite some time now, and it’s one of the best on the market for it’s specific uses and features. Some people say they don’t like the herb chamber, and I can definitely see where they are coming from, because it’s a basic stainless steel heating coil design that doesn’t offer any advanced vaporization capabilities. Heating coils also tend to burn out extremely easy, so you will have to try to find replacement chambers for the pen, which can sometimes be difficult. One good thing though is that this is standard 510 threading, so it is compatible with Atmos RX vape pen parts as well, so keep that in mind when you need to buy some extra chambers.
So overall I would say that the multi function style vapor pens are great for beginners who are looking to get their feet wet in the vaping field without spending too much money. This can be a great starter vape, or a great pen to have for when you are on the go, but just be sure that you aren’t using this for your go to dry herb vape. I would suggest that you purchase a heavy duty desktop vaporizer that was designed strictly for dried herbs. Something like the Arizer Extreme Q, because that can handle the demands of heavy, daily use. The Budy Pen Platinum is great for taking with you on the go and traveling around town, but maybe not so great for a big party where everyone is looking to smoke until they drop. For that you will need something bigger and more heavy duty. That is when you need to break out the Volcano’s and the Herbalizers. But for some personal day to day moderate usage the Vaporite Platinum is a great vaporizer pen for your needs, and one that you should definitely have in your vaping toolkit.
