Add the Water Pipe Adapter with this vape kit for the best cloud kicking performance. If the ONE’s smaller oven isn't going to cut it for you, see our next option below.
The ‘CF’ in ‘CFX’ stands for Cloud Factory, and this beast lives up to it. The Boundless CFX is a true big hitter, with a whopping ⅓ gram capacity and high, cloud producing temperatures. This portable monster clocks in with impressive wattage (80w) and a 20 second heat up for rich clouds from the very first draw. The CFX comes with precise temperature control settings, a full OLED Screen, and will satisfy those hungry for huge clouds.

Sticky Brick vaporizers
Our lineup of Sticky Brick vaporizers are a unique option. These wooden, on-demand vaporizers draw their hits from the power of torch lighters. No batteries, no precise temperature controls, but all the flexibility in the world. They have a slight learning curve, but master it and you’ll be glad you did. These handcrafted works of art can produce the thickest clouds on the market in an instant. Push it to the limits with your torch and take your herbs to the brink of combustion for the most potent, cloud chugging hits around. If you want a full rundown on what these vaporizers are and how they work, check out our Sticky Bricks Review.
The DynaVap VapCaps are another one of our torch-powered, on-demand powerhouses. These pen-shaped vapes take a familiar form and produce potent clouds from a tiny amount. Similar to the Sticky Bricks, VapCaps come with unrivaled flexibility, but with a smaller bowl for our small to medium appetites. Heat the cap and wait for the audible ‘click’ for a rich, flavorful hit, or push it a little bit further to milk your herbs to the max. Nail the technique and chug out thick clouds to your heart’s desire.
