Why I love the PAX 3

Look I’ll be the first to admit it – I don’t appreciate concentrates or dry herb vaporizing as much as I should. What can I say? I’m a smoker through and through. If anything were to change that though, it would be the PAX 3.

This wasn’t a machine I planned to get my hands on, but when one came my way, I could hardly say no. It’s small and sleek, with a single light display on the front and the only button on the device hidden in the mouthpiece. It strikes me as less than sanitary to have it there, but that’s my biggest complaint. Otherwise, I love it.

Why do I love it? A few reasons.

One, I can use it to vape dry flower. The oven is spacious (fits up to .5 of ground flower) and a compressed pack is recommended for maximum vapor production. It takes a minute to warm up and start pulling well, but once it does this thing rips. PAX recommends taking small sips rather than large hits, and you only have to make that mistake once to see why. It’s a vaporizer that hits like a bong if you’re not careful!

Secondly, it’s dual-purpose. The oven works for both flower and concentrates. All you have to do is switch between the oven lids and you’re good to go. The PAX 3 comes with two oven lids for flower, a full pack, and a half pack so the weed stays compressed even for smaller bowl packs. The concentrate insert has a small container to hold your budder/batter/shatter/ whatever and a lid to keep it contained.

I don’t usually have a lot of concentrate on hand, but I did pick up some 1:1 live sauce from Trade Roots in Massachusettes, and it hit beautifully.

About the PAX 3

The PAX 3 also has two mouthpiece options, a flat mouthpiece, and a raised mouthpiece. I’ve had my PAX since November, and I’ve never used the flat mouthpiece. The raised one is comfortable, easy to pull on, and still lets you hit the button easily.

The single-button navigation takes some getting used to, but rely on the instruction manual and PAX’s resources and you’ll get it down soon enough. It has four temperature options you can cycle through, indicated by the color of the light that flashes on the front.

The battery life on this machine is awesome – it lasts for over 2 hours on a single charge. When each smoking session is just a few minutes, it feels like forever. It also has an auto shut-off feature if it isn’t used for 30 seconds, which keeps me from draining the battery after I’ve hit it a few times.

The major advantage the PAX 3 has over smoking flower is the flavor. So much of the terpene profile and the flavor of the cannabinoids is lost in the combustion but is preserved in the PAX. Your flower and concentrates are far more flavorful and you can taste more than just “weed flavor.”

The PAX 3 is a bit of an investment – anything with a three-figure price tag is. But if you’re trying to smoke less, enjoy dry herb vaping, or want a sleek machine that travels well and keeps you from having “joint fingers”, this is a great machine.
