The Ultimate Wax & Dab Pen Guide 2020: 510 Thread & Vapes

Dab Pen Vaping Stoner

If you love getting your daily dose of cannabis, then a dab pen is one of the many tools that need to be in your arsenal. They’re great for ripping on the go or for just laying back on the couch with a good ole’ session.

Unlike traditional smoking, vaping uses oil, concentrates, CO2 oil, and all your favorite cannabis extracts. Higher cost vaporizers come with advanced features like temperature settings for getting the right kind of dose at your control.

In this post we’ll go over some of the different kinds of types to puff from including 510 thread vapes, oven wax pens, Puffco Plus, Yocan Evolve, and other proprietary vape pens like the Pax Era and the Stiizy. Other names you might see in this post for dab pens are vape pens, weed pens, vaporizers, and weed vapes.

Proprietary Vapes

Stiizy Vaporizer

Let’s start off with this new generation of vaporizers. The Stiizy.

It looks a lot like the infamous Juul, but rather than using pods with nicotine and fruity flavors they contain cannabis oils for getting you high conveniently and discretely.

STIIIZY offers a stoner’s product that is built for portability and the ultimate discreetness to medicate easily. The premium build and sleek design keeps you looking classy while you’re toking. The quality concentrates are lab-tested to ensure supreme quality and contain a high level of potency and purity extracted and processed from premium top-shelf flower to ensure that you stay elevated, every time.

Where can I buy STIIZY pods? STIIIZY products are only available for sale in CA, NV, MI, and WA dispensaries.

Pax Era

The main competitor to the Stiizy pen is the Pax Era.

Even closer looking to the Juul (which was actually invented by Pax), this oil pen is just as good, yet at a lower price point than its competition. The modern brand contracts out local grow farms and extractors to make high quality oil pods that are 100% proprietary to the device. Take a portable dab everywhere you go, and stay discreet. No one will know you’re getting fried!

Unlike the Stiizy, the Era offers an app for temperature control, reading about the pod you’re currently using, or even games.

Where can I buy Pax Era pods? As of the time this article was written, Pax Pods are available in AZ, CA, CO, IL, MD, MA, NV, OR, or WA dispensaries.

510 Threaded

The vape pens that take 510 thread cartridges are probably the most popular form of vapes. They’re essentially like smaller versions of your larger-sized vaporizers that are compatible with a wide range of vape cartridges from different companies that use a male 510 thread. You can charge these with a synonymous 510 threaded USB Charger, offered here at The Stash.

These vapes tend to have a battery life that lasts longer and that is designed for portability and easy-use. Some versions offer a button to get you going sky high with just a click with multiple heat settings for added power and extra vapor.

Cannabox recommends you only purchase 510 threaded cartridges from a licensed dispensary to confirm the accuracy of the information provided on the packaging. Under no circumstances should you look to buy this type of vape on the black market, as there has been a recent outbreak of health concerns for non-licensed manufacturers.

iMini 3 Vaporizer

A good example of a 510 thread vape is the extremely compact designed and universal-fitting, iMini 3. This vaporizer is charged by USB and includes pre-heating to give a little more flavor in your pulls from this pocket-friendly vape pen. It includes a tank-style cartridge with a wick-less coil for the smoothest and more flavor-rich rips and puffs.

Wax Pen Vaporizers

Yocan Evolve Plus Portable Vaporizer

The Yocan Evolve Plus Portable is a type of oven wax vape pen that utilizes dual quartz coils to transform your concentrates and dabs to the cleanest and purest vapor. This portable vape pen is the ultimate techy stoner gift for our favorite pot heads that just love toking up where ever they go.

Every vaping session will be a pure experience with a vaporizer that heats up instantly for quick sessions and fast action in the form of huge vapor clouds. It’s larger chamber also makes for better sessions by providing additional space for holding even more of your favorite concentrates. And if big is never quite good enough, the bottom of the Yocan Evolve Plus has a silicone jar for storing and containing your extra concentrate when you’re planning a casino trip or board game night with all your buddies.

Get ready for fast heat times, big clouds, and a great stoner experience!

Puffco Plus V2 Portable Vaporizer

Next is the popular Puffco Plus Portable oil vaporizer with a ceramic heating chamber for quick and even heating. This device features an integrated loading tool called “the dart,” to load your favorite concentrates in the wax oven with ease and convenience every time.

The multiple heat settings give you full control of the desired temperatures and the size of your smoke clouds during each session. You’ll notice the enhanced airflow and smooth rips every time you pull from this vape when you get smacked with potent hits and intense flavors.

You’ll love the easy cleaning and the ability to get medicated wherever you choose to go.

Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer

The Dr. Dabber Ghost Vaporizer is one for the stocking this Christmas. The tree will be decorated and bright, and all the stoners will be lit when St. Nick comes by with this vape pen for oil and concentrates. The Dr. Dabber Ghost features a dome-less nail to make it feel like the traditional dabbing setup so you don’t miss a single beat if you’re going over to your in-law’s over the holidays.

This vape pen is completely battery powered and ready to heat up to 700 degrees in 30 seconds all without a torch.

Your concentrate will be transformed into pure vapor and smooth flavor all with the help of the innovative percolator for water filtration and cooling.

Made for Flower

Pax 3 Basic Kit

Last on our list is the Pax vape pen.

The Pax 3 is unlike any of the other vape pens on this list. This portable vaporizer is perfect for dual use, allowing you to fill your vape pen for dry herb and extract. Get ready for endless possibilities and sessions with just a single push of a button with faster heating than ever. 

If you’re thinking about getting your stoner partner a gift this holiday, this portable vaporizer comes in all your favorite colors made in a high quality stainless steel: black, silver, and rose gold.

Lay back and chill with easy control of your music and your Pax 3 vape pen from your phone. Just pick and choose how to toast and roast your flower and extract!

See any vape pens you want to try? There are loads more out on the market but this is a good list to start out with. You can’t go wrong with a vape pen that takes 510 thread cartridges or the popular and best-selling Pax 3!
