Patients have many methods to choose between for consuming medical marijuana. But flower reigns, and the numbers back it up. In a study of modes of marijuana use, over 90% of marijuana consumers reported smoking marijuana, and over 58% responded that they smoke exclusively. For those who prefer flower, there are then even more choices for tools to use. One such tool is the Mighty, a dry herb vaporizer from Storz & Bickel.
What’s a dry herb vaporizer?
Dry herb vaporizers are devices which heat ground, dry herb in a chamber. The heat boils the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other active ingredients in cannabis. Importantly, the heat remains below the point of combusting the plant material. This makes vapor, rather than smoke.
Combustion, which results in smoke, can destroy active compounds before they have a chance to be consumed. The heat of the flame from a butane lighter averages 3,500°F. Marijuana combusts at temperatures around 450°F. It’s inevitable, at those temperatures, that combustion will destroy cannabinoids.
Compared to combustion methods like joints, blunts and bongs, vaporizing can use less flower for the same effect. It’s less harsh than smoke. It’s typically more discreet. And most of all, the full flavor of each strain shines through.
What sets the Mighty apart?
Mighty is a portable, rechargeable dry herb vaporizer that can fit in your pocket. It sets itself apart in its focus on the user experience.
It uses a patented combination of full hot air convection heating and additional conduction. Convection heating moves hot air through the herb to vaporize it. Conduction heating directly heats the herb. By utilizing both, the Mighty is able to deliver powerful vaporization from the very first draw.
The Mighty also features a cooling unit. As vapor is pulled through the device, the cooling unit ensures users have a smooth experience. It’s designed with low draw resistance that works for those who lightly sip or hit heavy.
Above all, it’s easy to use. The LED display is uncluttered with actual temperature on top, set temperature in the middle, and battery meter on bottom. Two buttons to either side are used to set the temperature, and pressing both at the same time allows users to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit. An orange power button on the side turns the device on or off. The Mighty turns off after detecting 2 minutes of inactivity, rather than using an automatic timed shut-off.
Whole, rough ground, and fine ground herb all work in the chamber. The ability to utilize the included dosing capsule provides a convenient pre-packing option. It also comes with a filling aid that makes loading herb into the chamber easy and tidy.
Two lithium-ion batteries power the Mighty, with an impressive typical runtime of 90 minutes per charge. Charging takes around 2 hours, and the device works while plugged in, avoiding any downtime.
