For those of you looking for best dab pen for CBD or THC concentrate, We have a winner! This dab vape pen is truly revolutionary – it has state of the art technology that only recently (2019) has been introduced into pocket-sized wax pen devices. This is definitely a product to consider.
The Plasma GQ wax vaporizer is one of the most advanced “table-top” rigs which uses a proprietary heating element that sits beneath a quartz bowl. It comes with a great warranty, offers variable heating options and is very compact. It is also one of the fastest heating CBD concentrate vaporizers on the market, it only takes about 5 seconds before it’s ready to hit after being powered on initially.
In our HoneyStick Phantom review we discussed another great vaporizer, which is using more common (yet powerful) dual quartz coils to heat up concentrate. Plasma GQ dab pen, with its innovating Quartz (glass) Bowl Heater took the wax vaping into a new level of intense & purity.
What Makes This Dab Pen Best?
When vaping with this awesome product, the concentrate never actually touches the heating coil which often provides a “burnt taste” or “metal taste”. Instead the concentrate is vaporized in a quartz heating container that is heated by the Plasma GQ coil. Customers who are true connoisseurs for taste will love this product as it delivers some of the best tasting hits you can get out of any vape pen. This is truly one of the Best Vape Pens for Wax we ever reviewed, truly delivers the most flavor for each hit.
The Plasma GQ kit comes in a high-quality box which contains everything you would need to vape while on the go or at home. Unlike other CBD vaporizer kits, this one has a bunch of great items included. A list of the items contained in the box are listed below for your convenience:
- Instruction manual
- Charging USB cable
- 2 Iso-Propyl Q-Tips
- Spare glass for Chamber
- State of the art dab tool
When we ask our customers about the kit, they say that the provided dab-tool is said to have surgical precision compared to most other tools. The Plasma GQ starter kit retails for a great price and is very reliable. It can be used with most forms of concentrates including waxes, dabs, crumbles, rosins, thicker slabs, even small amounts of essential oils.
How to Use the GQ Plasma Dab Pen
When you first get your Plasma GW vaporizer pen, you should immediately charge your battery for at least a few hours to “train” the battery. Like most products that are battery operated, they might not arrive fully charged. Use the provided USB cable and a common charger converter that you can plug into a household power outlet (you must use a converter if traveling outside of the US).
To turn on the device click the button 5 times rapidly. Then the light will blink 3 times in blue, to indicate that you’re on the high setting and ready to vape your crumble!
The Plasma GQ Pen has just one temperature setting: super-high! The setting is 850-degree Fahrenheit which limits the batter to a 10-second session for safety. Keep in mind that the quartz container keeps the concentrate from ever touching the Plasma GQ coil which is much hotter than the average temp needed to preserve taste.
Before adding any concentrate to the quartz bowl, make sure the unit is off to avoid burning yourself. You can power off your pen by rapidly pressing the button 5 times. When you’re sure that it’s off, you can hold the base firmly with one hand and wiggle the top glass chamber off of the top of the pen as shown in the video below:
Loading Dab Pen with Concentrate
Adding concentrate to the bowl can be done at this point, add your concentrate of choice using the provided dab tool. We recommend loading the unit with a small amount of concentrate at first and never overfill your quartz bowl to avoid spillage. Once the quartz bowl is filled, you can put the glass container back over the top of the pen and hit the button 5 times rapidly to power up. This pen literally heats up in less than 5 seconds. Simply start hitting after and enjoy your CBD Concentrate.
You may notice that the coil gets a very hot and bright red at the beginning stage of the heating process. This is normal, the pen is programmed to heat up rapidly in the beginning then it’s programmed to cool down to provide ideal temperatures after the initial rapid heat up phase.
How to Clean and Maintain Your Plasma Wax Pen
Cleaning the chamber made of quartz regularly is advised. Some users that like to switch flavors often will clean the quartz container after each session to ensure that no left-over flavor from the previous session is left in the container to adulterate the taste of the new concentrate that is used for the next session. It’s not required to clean after each session but at least clean it once a week if you are vaping regularly.
To clean your GQ Plasma Wax Vape Pen, we recommend using the provided iso-propyl charged cleaning swabs or ones that you purchase separately. The cleaning process is fairly easy, the pen comes apart very easily as shown in the demo video above. Take the Plasma GQ glass cover off by wiggling it away from the base while holding the base firmly with your free hand. Once the quartz bowl is exposed, you can clean the quartz with your iso-propyl charged q-tips. Be sure to double check to ensure that the quartz bowl is not hot before cleaning as it will burn you if you touch it while hot.
Cleaning your quartz vape pen is essential if you want to get the best taste from your vaporizer pen. The left-over residue from past loads can end up adding up and give you a burnt taste over time, to avoid this, clean your quartz bowl as often as possible.
