Our pick Mighty and Crafty+ - Power and consistency. The Crafty+ and Mighty are two of our favorite vaporizers for their impressive vapor output with herbs, and that power can translate to concentrates too, if you turn up the heat. Both vapes include stainless steel pads to prevent anything from dripping down into the heating element, and they’re as simple to use as they are with herbs. Just a little dab on top of the pad, and off you go.
That also makes the Mighty and Crafty+ more shareable and more pocketable. You can load up dosing capsules with both herb and concentrates and head off to your destination knowing you and your friends are totally set, no matter the situation. The Firefly 2+’s concentrate mode works excellently right out of the box, with the included concentrate pad that fits perfectly into the oven. Place a small amount of concentrate on the pad, set the Firefly 2+ to the highest heat setting, and enjoy tastes you’ve missed before. The gentle, convection heat preserves your concentrates the same way it does flowers, extending the herbal taste much further into your sessions. Instead of monster dab clouds, the Firefly 2+ delivers longer sessions with your concentrates, that are gentler and tastier than high temperature dab hits, but still effective. The Firefly 2+ is a solid choice for someone who mainly vaporizers flower, and has the occasional concentrate on hand to enjoy.
These powerful vaporizers may ditch the cord (contrary to our selection of desktop vaporizers), but they do it in a way that won’t leave you wanting more. Great vapor, easy to use, and a slightly larger size that’s just a little too big to be pocketable all add up to a great experience that you can take with you from the living room, to the kitchen, and everywhere in between. The Mighty is the closest you’ll get to a desktop experience in a portable vaporizer, and consistently great to have around the house. It’s easy to load and fire up at a moment’s notice, and no special techniques or buttons means anyone who happens to stop by the house can join in on the fun. There are no hot parts or extra steps, so you can hit it as you please, and not worry about leaving it in the bedroom when you sit down to have dinner. It’s a little on the larger size for a portable vaporizer, but still small enough to take with you in a bag or purse. The extra long battery life means you don’t need to worry about charging it, and as long as you’re at home, you can use it while plugged in. It’s convenient and reliable, which is exactly what you need when you come home and are just looking to relax. Glass stems may not sound groundbreaking, but Arizer’s unique system helps preserve the herb’s natural flavor, and slowly adds conductive heat to your herbs for a full, flavorful session. They aren’t the easiest to carry around, but they work perfectly at home, where you can load them up as you need them, or prepare a few before anyone comes over. If you’re looking for a medically licensed vaporizer, you only have one real option. Spider mites can be detrimental to your cannabis plants/ read on for a detailed look at what spider mites are and how you can prevent them in your grow area. Cannabis, just like any other plant, is susceptible to garden pests which, despite their size, can have devastating effects on a plant’s ability to grow and develop. In this article we look at spider mites, arguably one of the most common pests affecting cannabis plants. We’ll show you exactly what they are, how to get rid of them and how to prevent them coming back. For more articles like this and the latest cannabis-related news, grow tips and more, bookmark our site and check in with us regularly. Also, make sure to check out our earlier post for more tips on cannabis pest prevention. Spider mites are a common garden pest that generally lives on the undersides of plant leaves, where they may spin protective silk webs to protect themselves against the elements and other predators. They are less than 1 millimetre (0.04 inches) in size and can be red or black in colour. Spider mites prefer hot, dry conditions and lay transparent eggs which can hatch in as little as 3 days. Hatchlings are sexually mature in 5 days, and female mites can live for up to 2-4 weeks, laying up to 20 eggs per day. Spider mites feed off cannabis plants and cause damage by puncturing plant cells in order to feed. Spider mites affect both indoor and outdoor plants and can wreak havoc when not controlled quickly. Some initial signs of a spider mite infection include tiny spots or stippling on leaves (caused by feeding) and thin, silky webs surrounding the underside of plant leaves and branches.
Larger colonies can cause leaves to turn yellow, become limp and eventually, die off altogether.
A large spider mite infection can have a significant effect on a cannabis plant; by destroying the plant’s leaves, they may stunt its ability to grow and develop, eventually resulting in lower yields. Spider mites may also infect the surrounding areas of buds, which can affect their ability to develop and mature properly. Finally, a large enough colony can kill entire plants, although that is very uncommon. We do not recommend using chemical pesticides on spider mites.
