My last cannabis flower vaporizer was a wooden box with a plastic slide cover, heating coils, and a battery. Comparing my old wooden vaporizer to the G Pen Elite is like comparing a rotary phone to the iPhone. Sleek, portable and high tech, my G Pen Elite Vaporizer arrived in a black cylindrical box that included a several tools — a plastic keychain scoop (G Pen Tool), credit card grinder (G Card), cleaning brush, and a charger. The G Pen Elite Vaporizer from Grenco Science has an LED temperature display, rapid heat up time and a large range of heating options, all at a competitive $170 retail price.
I really liked the modern packaging that the G Pen arrived in, and the little G tool, G Card Grinder and cleaning brush make using it fool-proof. The G Card, which is more like a grater, is great for on-the-go vaping. Since the compact and discreet size and shape of the G Pen Elite is perfect for on-the-go vaping, I appreciated the inclusion of a portable grinder that fits in a wallet.
The chamber that you load your cannabis into is the biggest on the market, holding .75 grams of ground material, so this is a great option for those who don’t want to reload after a few draws.
Users have precise control over the heat setting of the G Pen Elite, as it can be set anywhere between 200 and 428 degrees Fahrenheit. It heats up quickly and displays the temperature clearly on a small LED screen. This allows the user to more intentionally explore various terpene and cannabinoid profiles through vaping at different temperatures. The heating chamber is right beneath the mouthpiece, so the hotter temperatures may be a little uncomfortable to use.
The vaping experience with the G Pen is subtle, but the flavor is off the charts. Vaping removes the flavor of combustion that permeates anything that burns like pipes, joints or bongs. When smoking, to discern the flavor profiles of various strains of cannabis, one must wade through the taste of combustion. The G Pen Elite allows the full flavor of whatever strain is loaded to come through unobstructed. It has allowed me to rediscover the flavor of my favorite cannabis strains.
It is discreet, compact and high tech. I am so impressed with the flavor I get from the G Pen Elite that I will be using it when I review strains from now on to get the purest flavor profile. I would recommend the G Pen to most people looking for a cutting-edge handheld vaporizer.
