Number four. Magic-Flight Launch Box by Magic-Flight. With immediate heat delivery at the push of a battery, Magic-Flight’s hand carved wooden box reminded judges of the old school days when getting high was easy. “It has a lot of hippy appeal,” said one, “and a style that’s both awkward and charming, but gets the job done.” Magic-Flight Launch Box includes two rechargeable batteries, battery charger, glass draw stem, and cleaning brush.

Number five. V2 Pro Series 7 vaporizer. Available in three colors, the V2 Pro was fairly stealthy and scored design points for offering mouth pieces for liquid, wax, and flowers. The pull was also easy and continuous at the proper temperature with little to know aftertaste.

Number six. The Crafty by Storz and Bickel. From the makers of the Volcano comes the Crafty, a portable handheld vaporizer that truly vapes your cannabis. The smallest of the company’s vapes, high tech doesn’t even begin to describe this excellent make and model. The Crafty had judges expressing the desire to vape anywhere, with great tasting hits, big clouds, and a sturdy design that scored high for durability. The Crafty includes filling aid, grinder, USB charger, brush, dab pad, spare screens, and spare seal rings.
