The Art of Vaping Your Herbs
We’re convinced Davinci makes the best hand-held vaporizers for herbs and oils. Why? Keeping your vapor cool while delivering great vapor are just two of the many high-end designer features you can expect from their superior products. They promise purity, innovation and control. Here’s our honest review of Davinci.
With the legalization of medical marijuana now in 29 US states and 25% of the US permitting its recreational use, portable herbal vaporizers are on the rise. On June 20th, 2018 Canada legalized recreational cannabis use. Davinci, focuses directly on the world’s growing cannabis market with a small but powerful line-up of three exceptionally high-end vaporizers with superior features. They also sell an assortment of aromatherapy herbs (not including marijuana) that can be vaped.
The Importance of Vaping Herbs
Davinci’s mission is to promote the benefits of aromatherapy. They’re committed to the promotion of safely vaping your herbs rather than smoking them using combustion, (lighting them up with a flame).
Why Vaping Herbs is Healthier Than Smoking Them
Unlike most ecig companies, Davinci has no issues talking directly about the health benefits of vaping and how it can dramatically improve how you feel and function. They even choose to quote Colgate to make their point clear about the dangers of smoking using combustion.
Combustion “can cause stained teeth, bad breath and a diminished sense of taste. Over time, it can also hinder your immune system, producing more concerning side-effects that include a reduced ability to recover after surgery. Because of this, it is also one of the most significant risk factors associated with gum or periodontal disease, which causes inflammation around the tooth. This irritation can affect the bone and other supporting structures, and its advanced stages can result in tooth loss.”
There are many vaporizers that excel at vaping e-liquids, but it takes a well-designed vaporizer to deliver cannabinoids and other herbal essences without burning your throat.
What Makes Davinci Vaporizers Special?
Divinci’s devices all use conduction heating which heats rather than burns and allows for more precise temperature control. What sets the company’s three vaporizers, the IQ the Ascent and the Classic apart from others, is that they use a variety of state-of-the-art heating methods. These include an all–glass vape pathway, an anodized aluminum casing, and a ceramic heating chamber. Unlike most conduction vaporizers, Davinci’s will give you balanced heating and a smoother, cooler, vape.
Davinci vaporizers’ unique features have put them on many respected “top vaporizers for marijuana” lists, (including ours). The first thing that blew me away was their packaging.
My IQ vaporizer arrived in a small wooden crate with an easy slide off lid. I was told that the crate will soon become a collector’s edition (starting holiday season 2018) so I was happy to get one! Still, the standard packaging is very high end and your vaporizer will come in a sturdy box.
Here Are The Most Important Features of Each Davinci Vaporizer
The Davinci IQ
Winner of the 2017 SPANNABIS Award, the IQ has been acclaimed for delivering pure, safe vapor production using Smart Path technology and precise heating technology. Unique to the IQ is its 100% ceramic zirconia air path and 4 different temperature settings that can be controlled from within the device’s settings or by using the Davinci vaporizer app. This style vaporizer is made specifically for vaping herbs.
The IQ heats up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit in just 16 seconds. You can set it to a maximum output of 431 degrees, but for the smoothest, coolest most satisfying vape you’ll never need to go anywhere near that level. Vaping the IQ will also keep your herb lasting longer than traditional vaporizer and certainly longer than if you were to smoke it.
Other features include a rechargable/replaceable 18659 battery that will give you up to 1.5 hours of use and different modes for energy saving.
You will need to use at least 0.7 grams of herb to fill the chamber. If you want to use less, use the must have accessory – the glass spacer which packs down your material to give you maximum vapor production.
Stunning Design Unlike Any Other
There’s a 51 light grid display which is very cool. At only 1.65″ W x 3.54″ H x 0.94″ D, the IQ fits in the palm of your hand. It weighs only 5 oz.
The Davinci IQ Includes:
- USB Charging Cable, Alcohol Wipes, Chimney Brush, Keychain Tool, 10mm Adapter (mouthpiece), Carry Can
- Colors Include: Stealth (black) , Gunmetal and Blue
- You can even personalized your IQ with engraving which costs $10 in the US and $40 international.
This little vape gem is truly in a “designer level” class of it’s own. So is the price – $271.99, but other reviewers think it’s worth it for the exceptional level of design, materials and overall quality. The IQ also comes with an impressive 10 Year Warranty.
The Davinci Ascent
Davinci’s top-of-the-line vaporizer, the Ascent, like the IQ, works with both herbs, oils and wax. If you’re concerned about chemicals that can be produced by high temperatures, this model goes a step further and features Davinci’s famous 100% all–glass pathway. Glass is one of the safest materials to use, because the heat produced causes a zero (0) chemical reaction.
The Ascent also has a glass-coated ceramic bowl, a 3-hour battery life and precision temperature control. All of these features offer unadulterated flavor and incomparable purity every time you vape.
Although this device is popular with vaping connoisseurs, it’s a winner for both new and advanced vapers.
Priced just under $200, with free shipping to the US, Canada and the EU, the Ascent comes in a variety of designs including Stealth, Carbon Fiber, Burl Wood, Croc Skin and Black Skulls. You can even personalize your vaporizer with custom designs.
The Kit Includes:
- Wall Charger, (choose US, UK, EU or AU), Glass Stems, Glass Oil Jars, Metal Pick, Carrying Satchel
- Five Colors
Davinci Classic Vaporizer Bundle
Designed for durability and portability, the Classic is made for vapers on the go. This extremely rugged vaporizer has been drop tested at heights over 10Ft. It even contains a built-in stash box for your materials.
You get a precision Temperature Control feature that can heat your vape up to 405°. The air pathway is made of metal and silicon. This little vaporizer can also be used with oils and wax.
The Classic Kit Includes:
- Wall Charger
- Oil Cans
- Pack of Screens
- Cleaning Brush
It comes in three colors, Back, Gray and Green and is now selling at $129 with free shipping to the US, Canada and the EU.
Wrapping Up Our Davinci Review
Davinci really impressed us with their specialized product line-up. We think they’re destined to replace not only the bong of yesteryear, but many now-popular herb vaporizers.
Yes, they are pricey, but after testing and comparing their herb and oil vaporizers to others on the market, I think Davinci’s well-designed products are worth it…and you do get free shipping to US, CAN, and the EU.
There are also some cool, must-have accessories including a glass spacer for the IQ which I will review soon. Customer service is also excellent.
