Unless the internet hasn’t been available to you in the past few years, it’s highly likely that you’ve heard of dry herb vaporizing. As marijuana continues to gain popularity among nay-sayers and regulations become more inclusive, the methods to consume it have become more innovative.

The reason behind it:

Anyone looking to consume cannabis in any way, shape or form, probably does it looking for one thing; wellness.

A noun that doesn’t seem to pair well with the deed of smoking. So, as legalization continues to spread, innovative minds have set themselves to work in finding consumption methods that pay tribute to the wellness aspect of cannabis.

Something that doesn’t include inhaling carcinogens (smoke) into your pristine lungs.

But how to do it without giving up on the fast-acting, anxiety-crushing traits of taking a smoke break?

Enter Vaporizing

When you smoke weed all you’re really doing is converting the fine hairs that grow on cannabis flowers and leaves into an inhalable gas. 

These hair-like structures are called ‘trichomes’.

Trichomes contain the largest amount of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Once this was identified, some of our smartest minds dared to ask themselves the question; How can we consume these trichomes without having to actually burn the plant?

Vaporizing does just that.

By heating up at accurately defined temperatures that don’t charr the plant material holding the trichomes, vaporizing devices like the XVAPE Avant are able to evaporate the plant’s trichomes without reducing the flower to ashes.

Vaporizing was first introduced to us through big, clunky devices like oil rigs. Bong-like devices that you would heat up with a blow torch and then deposit your cannabis concentrate in. Prompting it into a gas state you may inhale.

Shortly after, we grew out of the habit of using blowtorches and slowly but surely migrated into stationary electric vaporizers. A device that met the same purpose without the need of using a blowtorch.

But then, we just ended going back to the classic joint, because there’s nothing like it for an ‘on-the-go’ cannabis experience.

Or is there?

A portable dry herb vaporizer designed with an incredibly compact and exquisitely flat architecture that fits right in your pocket.

The Avant has a magnetic zirconia mouthpiece that detaches easily but fastens securely to the body of the device. Allowing you to access easily to its 100% isolated air path when a little maintenance is due.

The impact-resistant metal body on the Avant makes it incredibly durable and protects the ceramic baking chamber from unwarranted falls. The baking chamber is made to fit large amounts of ground flower backed up by a powerful 1200mAh battery that will not run out of juice easily. 

The 5 temperature settings on the XVAPE Avant enable you to play in a broad temperature range of 356F-428F, making sure that it can handle multiple strains that perform better at different temperatures.

The XVAPE is unbelievably easy to operate due to its one-button design; 3 clicks to turn on/off, and holding it down to switch between temperature settings.

Overall Performance

The XVAPE Avant is a conduction unit. Which means it heats up your flower by touch rather than air.

When it comes to vaporizing convection seems to be a better option because it delivers a more balanced vaporizing of trichomes. But the XVAPE is a system that seems to conduct heat as well as any and takes only up to 30 seconds to reach the desired temperature.

Because you’re working with a conduction design, the metal body of the device tends to heat up quite nicely. But if we’re being honest, we’ve tried convection devices with a much higher price point that heat up just the same, which prompts us to believe that there might be speed to gain and money to save with the XVAPE.

Overall, the XVAPE Avant works well and efficiently. It heats up fast and the price point is unbeatable at $59 USD for a device built with high-end material and a legit, beautiful design.
