My goals during this step are to use minimal heat, finish expediently, and recover as much alcohol as possible. For this task there’s only one affordable, easy to use, at home appliance for the job, the Source Turbo by ExtractCraft (www.extractcraft.com). If using the Source, for safety of operation, you must make absolutely sure there is no butane remaining in the wash. You can run 300ml per batch, clean about 21 grams of dirty extract at a time, use only around 100°F to keep the terpenes strong, and reclaim 95% of the ethanol safely in the home in a little more than two-hours. DEMONSTRATION: The results from the initial filtering were clean and looked great.
A total of 32g of quality concentrate was recovered from this batch. An additional 4.5g was recovered from the second wash of the re-filtered undesirables. I threw the delicious oil in the vac oven and made some happy days! G Pen Pro Cleaning brush + packing tool USB charging cable Grinder card. Compatibility : The G Pen Pro is only compatible with dry herb. You can get replacements for the mouthpiece, grinder card, and the charging cable at the G Pen website. However the grinder card is not the best way to grind herb, so you would be better off using a quality herb grinder like the SLX, which you can get from Vape-Smart. It’s also unnecessary to buy a replacement cable from them since you can buy one anywhere. Whatever you decide to buy from their website, don’t forget to use the G Pen coupon code when you do.
General Design : The Pro has a very sleek, discreet design that looks good, but also won’t attract too much attention, which is a pretty nice trick. It has a smooth, slim design without any bumps or protuberances since the power button sits flush against the body of the vape. That means it fits nicely in your hand and easily slips into your pocket. It has the understated grey color that you see in all of G Pen’s vapes, and it manages to look good without being too noticeable. My only issue is that the flat mouthpiece with the small slit isn’t my favorite type of mouthpiece because it always feels awkward. It does help with portability and concealability though, so I can see why they chose it. Ease of Use : This is a pretty good choice for beginners because it is very easy to use. There is only one button to control the power and preset temperature settings, so it’s pretty simple to come to terms with using the Pro. Loading is easy too since all you have to do is remove the mouthpiece when you want to fill the chamber, and replace it when you’re done. The G Pen Pro is a simple, uncomplicated weed vaporizer to use, which is always a good thing. Build Quality : The Pro is made from aluminum so it’s nice and durable, plus its fingerprint and scratch-resistant, which is always a plus. The mouthpiece is made of plastic though, which is a little problematic. That’s because it’s located right over the oven, and since plastic doesn’t really disperse heat all that well, the mouthpiece tends to get a little warm during use. You can use the included cleaning brush to clean out the chamber. As for the mouthpiece, a soak in isopropyl alcohol for an hour or two should do the trick. Remove the mouthpiece from the rest of the vaporizer to expose the herb chamber. Fill the chamber with herb and replace the mouthpiece. Press the power button five times to turn on the device. Hold down the power button to cycle through the temperature settings. Once the setting has been chosen and heating is complete, inhale from the mouthpiece. Vaporizer Performance : The Pro heats up in about thirty seconds, which is pretty quick for a dry herb vaporizer. As I mentioned earlier, the mouthpiece does get a little warm after you use it for a while.
Vapor Quality : The vapor produced by the Pro is just decent. You wouldn’t expect amazing vapor quality in a weed vape that costs less than $100, but even in that category, the Pro isn’t the best. Vapor quality starts out decently strong but falls off during each session, which is pretty disappointing. I got the best vapor at the lowest temperature setting because, at the higher ones, the vapor becomes too harsh and uncomfortable. Vapor production isn’t too dense no matter the temperature setting, which isn’t a bad thing since the Pro is meant to be a discreet vape. Battery Performance : The battery only lasts for about thirty to forty minutes and takes roughly two hours to recharge. Those aren’t great numbers even when you take the Pro’s size and price point into consideration. Grenco Science: The Comprehensive Guide to All Vapes. Grenco has become a byword for ‘quality’ when it comes to portable vaporizers. The company was founded several years ago by Chris Folkerts, who was so blown away by the taste and therapeutic effect of his first weed vaping experience that it led him to invent the original Grenco G Pen back in 2012.
In the years since, the vape manufacturer has become ubiquitous in hip-hop culture, with industry legends such as Snoop Dogg heavily involved in the brand. In fact, Grenco vaporizers is one of several proprietary labels that has recorded astounding growth over the last few years, in what is quickly becoming a multi-billion dollar industry.
