Vaping has gained a ton of popularity over the last couple of years – remember when everyone was using a JUUL (we still see a lot of these)? Now we don’t advocate for nicotine vapes here, but vape pens for weed are an entirely different story.
Vapes are among the most convenient and discreet ways to get high. They’re handheld, portable, and – depending on what you put in them – they pack a punch. Weed vapes are getting more and more popular – you probably either know someone who has one or have one yourself.
There are three main types of weed vape pens:
1) A vaporizer that you fill with flower or concentrates.
2) Vape pens that are only a battery and pre-filled distillate cartridges.
Both have pros and cons. Vaporizers can be filled with whatever you choose – whether it’s bud or wax or whatever. Vape pens are strong and insanely easy to use. Both are discreet and portable.
Unfortunately, vape pens can get expensive. And you might be intimidated by the price point if you’re considering buying one. No worries, we’re here to help. You can find plenty of cheaper options that work just as well as the high-end ones.
Weed Vape Pens That Won’t Break the Bank
You can find vape pens at any dispensary and it won’t hurt to ask the budtender for help when deciding what to buy. But it also helps to go in with an idea of what you’re looking for. We’ll break down some of the best, cheapest options in this article, separated by type. If you see one you like, check out weed coupon websites like Cannasaver to see if there are any deals on the product.
Herb & Concentrate Vaporizers
Herb & concentrate vaporizers do exactly what you think they do – they vaporize flower or concentrates. You fill the cartridge with marijuana and the temperature-controlled device will make it possible to vape. They’re very user-friendly and allow for a lot of customization. Here are some of the best options that won’t hurt your wallet:
Black Mamba Vaporizer – $48.99
The Black Mamba Vaporizer is a slick-looking with a conduction oven that can hold about 0.65 grams of flower. It’s a different shape than your average vaporizer and the conduction oven slightly changes the vapor you get. At just under $50, it’s a good vaporizer to purchase.
Yocan Evolve Plus XL Vaporizer – $49.99
The Yocan Evolve Plus XL is the newest version of Yocan’s fantastic vaporizer line. The new line is slightly bigger and has several quality-of-life improvements. The vaporizer is now easier to fill and take apart and they’ve added a way to adjust the airflow intake for the perfect vape hit.
Kind Pen Bullet Vaporizer – $49.99
The Kind Pen Bullet Vaporizer gets its name from its – you guessed it – bullet-like shape. This vaporizer is used only for concentrates. Its shape allows for easy portability and discretion. The pen is also manufactured so that any leftover concentrate gets turned to vape on the next use.
Jump Atmos Dry Herb Vaporizer – $64.99
The Jump Dry Herb Vaporizer is a perfectly designed vaporizer that is both durable and easy to use. Simply pack the cartridge with flower and vape away. The cartridge should keep its heat for a short while, so you can take multiple hits quickly.
Honey Dabber II - $49.99
The Honey Dabber II is a concentrate vaporizer created by Honey Labs. The cherry wood sleeve gives the vape an authentic, natural look and doesn’t lower structural integrity. The piece is about five inches long, so the vapor will be cooled and mostly odorless by the time it hits. This cheaper option gives the look of a high-end vape and works just as well.
AirVape XS Go Vaporizer – $69.95
The AirVape XS Go Vaporizer is a small, portable concentrate vape. This vaporizer is also extremely light so it makes for the perfect on-the-go vape pen. The pen comes with five temperature options and a ceramic oven for easy cleaning. The mouthpiece is detachable so it can be cleaned in alcohol easily.
Vapium Lite Vaporizer - $79.00
The Vapium Lite is a dry herb vaporizer with eight temperature settings for maximum control. The ceramic conduction oven produces good flavor and vapor. The chamber holds up to 0.33 grams of flower for a nice, short vape session.
Distillate Vape Pens
Distillate vape pens differ from herb and concentrate vaporizers in that they need a specific pre-filled distillate cartridge. These are generally cheaper than vaporizers – but there’s a catch. Depending on how often you use the pen, the distillate cartridges may not last long. Unfortunately, they can sometimes be expensive, so make sure you’re getting a good deal.
Honey Stick Elf Auto Draw Vape – $24.99
The Honey Stick Elf is a small, buttonless distillate ‘pen.’ Its boxy shape allows for easy transportation. The magnetic connector piece for the cartridge allows for easy access and detachment. The Honey Stick Elf is compatible with most of the cartridges you’ll find at a dispensary.
Kandypens Slim Oil Vape - $34.95
Kandypens is known for its impressive selection of many different vaporizers. The Slim is just that – slim. It’s an elegant and simple design that will fit in your pocket and take up very little space. It’s compatible with all pre-filled cartridges from dispensaries. This vape is also buttonless and activates and you take hits.
HoneyStick BeeKeeper – $39.95
The HoneyStick BeeKeeper is a higher-end vaporizer that works with pre-filled cartridges. The vapor is both flavorful and great in quality. This vape pen has a button that must be pressed in order to draw in, but no temperature or heat controls are needed.
