It was one of the cheaper ones there, with only some handhelds being cheaper but not even looking like real vaporizers. They had a silver surfer for a little more, iolites, volcanos, and various others. I knew I didn’t want a volcano or any of the bag type ones, because I wanted the unit to be as compact as possible, but still high quality. I also like drawing on my herb manually, I don’t want a machine to do it for me. \t The Aroma Classic was the one that caught my eye mainly because it was the only one with real character. The Silver Surfer was pretty cool too- but it looked too much like a garage project with glass pipes glued to it. I really liked the look of the bamboo casing for the Aroma Classic, and the construction quality of the unit and included parts were top notch. The unit has an On and Off switch, and a temperature control knob on the front. When you switch the unit on, the glass stem (which houses a ceramic tube with the heating element in it) lights up a bright green color, and looks fantastic. The glass stem is mounted in the back of the bamboo box with a big sturdy silicon holder. It seems extremely sturdy, and resilient. \tThe temperature knob is very smooth, and precise. There is a sticker under the knob which indicates that 9:00 is the coolest, and 3:00 is the hottest. This is one problem I have with this vaporizer. This sticker really threw me off the first night I was vaping with this, because I didn’t think I should go past the 3:00 mark that says it is the hottest. I now have found out that the sticker gauge is just showing which direction to move the knob to get the desired temperature. After turning up the knob past the 3:00 point (it goes all the way to 6:00) I had a much more fulfilling and productive experience. \tThe whip that is included is a dual chamber whip. It has a small glass bottom piece that screws into a larger glass chamber that the tube is connected too. The small bottom piece and the large glass chamber both have screens in them where they screw together. This makes loading, vaping, and emptying extremely clean and easy. (I only touch my herb when I’m taking it out of the jar it’s in, and putting it in the grinder.) I can’t imagine how anyone would vap without this type of system. Having only one screen to keep the herb from sucking through, but not having one to keep it from falling onto the heating element seems really ridiculous and a very poor design choice. This design makes the most sense, and works amazingly well. Instead of taking the whip off and having to stir the herb around (like people say your supposed to do) I just kind of shake it a bit. The herb gets stirred up this way, but because of the dual screens it doesn’t fly out. Very easy- very quick. I let the unit heat up for exactly 3 minutes every time, and it always produced visible exhalable vapors. I used 0.3 - 0.5 grams of ground herb for every session. The vapor is thick, and extremely delicious- I can easily blow vapor rings with it. \tUpon experimenting with the unit a bit, I have found quite a few things: Temperature matters greatly when vaporizing. \t \tThe first night, I didn’t turn my temperature up enough because of the sticker thing I mentioned. I was getting vapors, so I thought I was at the right temperature. I definitely got high, but something was seriously lacking compared to the normal high I get off of a bubbler/bong bowl. I had my knob set at around 1:00. You can get yourself unequivocally, seriously fucked up vaporizing. \tThe second night I decided to turn the knob up to around 4:30, and wow... Did I have a different experience. THIS was the high I had been hearing about from so many different people. The vaporizing high. It was incredible. It IS incredible. I have a hard time believing that this is actually way better for you, because shit never works like that in the world. Usually the better and more potent is worse for you, but not for this. I have been smoking for the past 3 years just about every day. For a year in there, I was blazing bowls about 4-7 times a day. I still smoke everyday, but usually just in the evenings- What I’m getting at is- I know my way around weed/getting high, and I can’t say more simply: VAPORIZING MARIJUANA WILL GET YOU MORE BLAZED THAN SMOKING IT WILL. The Aroma Classic is one mean Vaporizer\t I am really happy with this purchase. Before buying this I was skeptical as shit. I had heard all the great things about vaporizing, but still took it as myth- or rationalized it that perhaps those people who are having a great time vaping don’t really smoke weed like I do. I went to the store ready to buy the vaporizer, believing that it would be neat, but not really practical- or maybe that it wouldn’t really get me high like smoking would-believing that my trusty bong and pieces would serve me for years to come. Little did I know. This unit is built extremely well, and has the best style of any of the vapes I’ve seen. The way it lights up green, the smooth operation, the bamboo case- its all just oozing awesome. The whip that is included has by far the best design I’ve seen on the market and it extremely easy to load, vap, and empty. I would recommend this vaporizer to everybody, especially to those looking for a more efficient, potent, and all around improved way of enjoying those beautiful crystal covered buds.
