Best Vapes for Flavor: How we test
When we use a vaporizer for the first time, one of the very things we notice is the taste. Are the flavors strong and vibrant, weak but noticeable, or nonexistent altogether? Now of course, the quality of your herbs is very important, but the vaporizer is what brings those herbal aromas to life.
Before we begin, we take each vaporizer and start with a fresh load of herbs at varying temperatures to see how well they present flavors from start to finish. At some point during a session, the flavors dissipate as the herbs vaporize and you're left with tasteless clouds or no vapor altogether. Our goal is to see which vapes keep up with flavors the longest before it's time to repack or raise the temperatures.
