Whether you call them concentrates, wax, shatter or dabs, chances are that you’ve heard of these in recent years. But perhaps you’re still asking yourself, what are concentrates? Why are they so popular? If I want to start vaping them, which vaporizer should I get? Well, we answer all these questions and more in the article below.
All About Concentrates
So why are concentrates so damn popular, well there’s a few reasons. First and foremost is that concentrates deliver potent hits each and every time. Unlike dry herb concentrates deliver potent clear-headed highs each and every time. Added to this is the fact that transporting concentrates is actually much more discreet than using dry herb. The smell of concentrates just isn’t as pungent as dry herbs and so you won’t have to worry about sitting on the bus or train absolutely reeking of weed. Concentrates are really the only choice for the discreet vaper. Below we’ve listed the most popular concentrate pens of 2019, have a look and see if any of them is the right fit for you.

KandyPens Galaxy Vaporizer Pen
One of the cheaper vapes on this list but certainly no slouch when it comes to quality, the KandyPens Galaxy has a lot of things going for it in its tiny package.
