I’m intrigued by technology when it makes my job easier. Take the Puffco Peak, for example. This is quite the invention, and I am quite fond of it. Historically, I’ve shied away from vaporizers that use concentrates. The potency of the materials themselves have bothered my equilibrium in the past, making the circumstances of smoking “dabs” most unpleasant to say the very least. Then, there is the stigma of lighting a blow torch, reminds me of Richard Pryor and an ill-fated event with smoking cocaine. I have difficulty with the blow torch part of the equation. Enter the Puffco. It makes the process of smoking concentrates an easy adventure, nothing more than placing the material into the handy ceramic bowl and then pressing the on switch. In mere seconds, your vessel is vaporizing the dab and the smoking experience is easy on the lungs. No more inhaling red hot materials. I’m a fan of low-temperature dabs. If I’m going to dab in the first place, the Puffco makes it easy to do my sesh— always correct the first time, and every time. That’s quality for you. Because this device has done so much to change my views and contributed so much to concentrate culture, I just had to learn more about the man behind the technology. Now, please meet Roger Volodarsky, CEO of Puffco.
AKA: Mother’s Little Helpers-by the Rolling Stones is in the Public Domain. The BEST gifts for Moms. That’s the gift list that I want to put together. Just returning from the Hall of Flowers, I was privy to some of the finest cannabis flowers in the world, shown to me in all forms, from vaporizers (The Ghost comes to mind), to the ever cleverly designed Puffco Peak, there was something for everyone at The Hall of Flowers. Perhaps the greatest element of this B2B event was the opportunity to openly consume our cannabis, without fear of arrest. That stigma alone is my motivating force behind the use of vape pens. They are non antagonistic. They don’t shout: I’m smoking a joint. They are designed for pleasure, some with added terpenes for taste and aromatics, still others are the exemplification of class and comfort against your lips. I was charmed by so many, but I only have room for eleven, so here goes. Moms Little Helper indeed.

Technology certainly has taken the lead in the cannabis world with faster, stronger and better moving forward and the ‘old fashioned’ methods (the ones that I’m more familiar with), of enjoying cannabis being left in the dustbin of history. The old days of struggling to roll a joint to take your expensive medicine are the vestiges of time gone past. The very thought of emitting a deep cough from the sometimes-harsh cannabis smoke is uncomfortable on your throat. “High” Technology in cannabis makes taking a hit less onerous and stressful on the lungs, all the while enjoying the flavors and the textures of the concentrated cannabis vapors. I’ve been playing around with expensive technology and these are some standouts in the world of wonderful, cannabis gifts for the person who, has it all, or just wants the very best. Money is no object in most cases! I have included in my list a couple of non-technology items, just because I thought they are worthwhile and well thought out.
