The most expensive vape in the world (is not worth the price)
As you may have noticed, it's 4/20 this week, and we've been posting quite a few good deals on different gear available online. But we're not called The Frugal Stoner -- we're the Elegant Stoner, so we figured it would be fun to take a look at a piece of gear that's not quite so cheap.
Now, when you read the words "most expensive vape," you might be thinking of the legendary Storz and Bickel Volcano vaporizer, and you wouldn't be wrong. The Volcano is basically an industrial strength vaporizer, and unlike our actual choice here, it is definitely worth the money. While it is very expensive (you'll pay $600 for the model with the LED screen, not to mention buying the bags that you collect the vapor in), it's the best vaporizer money can buy, and it will easily get a whole room full of people having a great Saturday afternoon with no fuss or muss. (By the way, S&B, if you're listening, please feel free to send us a Volcano -- we'll be happy to review it here, and by review it here we'll mean sing it's praises, because it really is that great a device).
Outside of the Volcano, there are some other great choices out there as well. The S&B Mighty will set you back about $400, and while we haven't gotten to use it, unlike the Volcano, the reviews on it are great already. The Vapexhale Evo is supposed to be excellent as well, and it's a pretty penny (not to mention all of the extra glass and accessories you can grab there if you want to). Once again, we're happy to try and review any of these (or any other vaporizer, if you happen to have one you like).
None of those live up to the most expensive vape ever made, however. The most expensive vape ever made is called the Shisha Sticks Sofia, created for one customer by a British company. The story goes that a Russian billionaire wanted to make a custom vape for a girlfriend (named, of course, Sofia), and the company put together this pretty plain vape pen, and decorated it with real gold, diamonds, and other expensive crystals. The vape boasts 246 flawless gems, with a six-carat diamond on the end (and a button encased in gold). The glass in the top unit is hand-blown, and part of a centuries old tradition of glassmaking on the Venetian island of Murano.
Total price for this bad boy? $890,000. Yes, there are four zeros in that price. Someone paid nearly a million dollars for a vape with a bunch of stones on it. Sofia must have a great personality!
Now, technically, this is an e-cigarette vape, but if you put cannabis oil in that top reservoir, it would probably work just fine. And we can't recommend this at all -- if you want something pretty much exactly like this, you can go to your local dispensary, buy a battery and tank for about $15, and then pop some rhinestone stickers on there -- odds are good no one will tell the difference anyway.
But there she is, the most expensive vape in the world. If you want, you can pair that up with the most expensive bong you'll ever see, and have quite a pair. But seriously, Storz -- if you have a Volcano sitting around, we're happy to take that off your hands instead.
