In-Depth of the Da Buddha Vaporizer

Da Buddha Black

- Price - At a price of $189, the Da Buddha is one of the less expensive desktop vaporizers on the market today. Many vape enthusiasts consider it to be the least expensive unit that is still capable of producing vapor of adequate quality to make for an enjoyable experience.

- Reputation – While the 7th Floor Da Buddha does not have the same stellar reputation as other dry herb models like the Volcano, it is known for producing satisfying vapor. Most people consider the amount, taste, and potency of draws from the DBV to be average when compared to all desktop devices, and above average when compared only to vapes sold at a similar price.

Da Buddha Carrying Case Cushioned

- Guarantee - The heating element on this movel has a 3 year warranty, which is about average for desktop vaporizer models and a little less than what's offered on some other vapes. The glass components of the device are not covered by the warranty, and they can break if they are not cared for properly. It's recommended that the device is always be stored in its padded carrying bag when not in use to protect the pieces.

- Prep Time - This 7th Floor vaporizer does not require a lot of time to setup. The unit gets hot in approximately 2 to 4 minutes, which is about average for desktop vaporizers, even those that are more expensive.

- Heating and Temperature Regulators - The DBV features a powerful ceramic heating element, and it does allow you to set the temperature to the optimal level for whatever you're vaping. One thing to keep in mind is that there are no numbers on the dial, so it is hard to set the temperature precisely.

- Ease of Use - With the Da Buddha, there are not a lot of buttons to push or settings to configure. Most people will be able to begin vaping and getting satisfying draws with the vaporizer right away. The DBV has a ground glass connection as a standard feature. A benefit of this is that it holds the wand in place, so there is no need to grip it while vaping. The only problem is that the angle of the wand causes the herbs to fall down inside of the whip, which can result in uneven heating. To eliminate this, it's necessary to stir the herbs frequently. This somewhat lessens the benefits of having the hands-free connection. Da Buddha Vaporizer Dissected View

Da Buddha Heating Process

  1. Air is inhaled through a small hole in the mouthpiece of the whip
  2. Da Buddha's ceramic heating element heats the air to the vaporization temperature (pre-selected by the user)
  3. Air moves from the heater into the wand
  4. Hot air vaporizes your herbal blend or tobacco
  5. Vapor is produced for you to enjoy

How to Vaporize with Da Buddha - two methods:

    Option A - Turn the glass knob to 100 percent and wait for two to three minutes. Then, turn the knob back approximately to the 1 o'clock position on the dial for use.

    Option B - Turn the glass knob to your preferred temperature position and wait three to five minutes for full preheating

Process of vaporizing with Da Buddha:

  1. While you wait for the unit to preheat, we recommend that you grind your herbal blend or tobacco. Grinding is necessary to get best results
  2. Fill the wand so that it is 12 percent to 25 percent full. You can fill it with your fingers or suck it off of a flat surface into the wand
  3. Insert the wand into the heater hole on the device
  4. Draw through the mouthpiece. A slow draw will produce hotter vapor, while a fast draw will produce a cooler vapor
  5. Stir the contents of the wand periodically to ensure complete vaporization and the best possible flavors
  6. When finished, empty the used blend into the trash

How to Maintain Your Da Buddha Wand

To keep your Da Buddha vaporizer working in peak condition, you will need to periodically change the wand screen. The process for changing the screen is as follows:

There are many types of vaporizer weed desktops for medical marijuana available on the market, but the 7th Floor Da Buddha Vaporizer is one of the most well-known and affordable.

A Quick Da Buddha Vaporizer Review

For the low price of the Da Buddha Vaporizer, this desktop model offers real value for the money. The medical weed vaporizer produces very potent, smooth vapor that is of excellent quality for medicinal cannabis users' needs. The vape is ready for use in about 2 to 3 minutes, and its temperature regulators are highly effective, to reduce the risk of combustion, and ensure that you're getting a true vaping experience and not just burning your material.

There are a couple of small drawbacks to the Da Buddha vaporizer. The biggest one is that the angle that you insert the whip into can be a little awkward, as you have to turn the wand horizontally to heat up your material. Some other desktop vaporizers have angled heating elements that are simpler to use. The other major drawback is that there are no numbers on the analog dial, so it can be hard to return to the exact same temperature setting once you find one that works for you.
