As an old school stoner, I remember the old days of taking turns with a blow torch, heating up a nail, and literally dabbing a concentrate onto the red-hot nail using anything metal we could find. Thankfully, those dirty old days are long gone, as a whole industry of eRigs, electronic dab rigs, has descended upon the world like angels here to take us to the “most high” promised land.
Puffco is one of the leading brands of electric dab rigs in the world and is a community favorite. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone with experience using eRigs who hasn’t at least heard of them. Puffco makes numerous products (including the Puffco Plus), but their signature product, the Puffco Peak, remains one of the most popular and high quality dab devices in the world. So, when Puffco announced the Puffco Peak Pro, released November 2020, most users and reviewers were skeptical: how can Puffco possibly improve on an already mind blowing and much-loved design? We’ve had the chance to try out both products, and although the Puffco Peak remains one of the best dabbing rigs in the world, upgrading your setup to the Puffco Peak Pro Next-gen eRig is a leap that every Puffco user will find easy to make.
The Puffco Peak
Upon release, The Puffco Peak outshined all other products, and it quickly became the standard in concentrate vaping that all competition was forced to market themselves against. For multiple years, companies released products that aimed to go head-to-head with the Puffco Peak, including the High Five Duo, Focus V Carta, Dr. Dabber, PAX, KandyPens Oura, X-MAX Qomo,G Pen Connect, and Boundless Tera. Despite the competition, the Puffco Peak remains one of the top contenders due to its high quality and multiple top of the line features.
What is a Puffco Peak?
The Puffco Peak is an electronic device that allows you to vaporize cannabis concentrates with the push of a button. This makes dabbing safe and easy, and even has the added benefit of conserving your supply since you won’t be wasting any through the natural drip of the concentrate that occurs when using traditional nails.
Can you smoke flower (bud) in a Puffco Peak?
The simple answer is: no. This device is intended for concentrates only, including wax, budder (butter), or shatter. As a vaporizer, you aren’t “smoking” the concentrate; the device is heating the concentrate without actually combusting (burning) it, meaning that there are significantly less chemical changes taking place. This reduces the toxins and carcinogens produced through inhaling any burned material to nearly zero. Different temperatures allow the release of specific cannabinoids (eg. THCA ranges from 220°F to 428°F, while CBC is released closer to 450°F).
