As it stands at the moment, there are 25 states, as well as the District of Columbia, that have legalized medical marijuana. That number is expected to grow sooner rather than later, and that means that the demand for dry herd vaporizers is likely to be on the rise in the coming years. Different people like to get their weed in different ways, with some using dry herb, while others fall on the side of wax concentrates. There are some who like to mix and match, which is why a good multifunction vaporizer is an excellent option for anyone considering using medical marijuana. There are a number of these types of devices on the market, and we will try to review as many as possible. Let’s get things started by looking at the Boundless CFX vaporizer to see how it hold up against the admittedly stiff competition that is out there right now.
Getting to know the Boundless CFX
Portability – This is a device that may best be used in the home, as it is a good deal bigger than the pen style vaporizers out there. This one has a box style that is not quite so easy to get into your pocket or use discretely.
Ease of Use – There is very little in the way of draw resistance with this device, which makes it easy for newbies. The controls are straightforward and easy to use, so no real learning curve here.
Power Source – The Boundless CF is powered by a pair of rechargeable lithium ion batteries that deliver an average life for a unit in this price and quality range. Charging time is relatively quick, but we would recommend investing in a couple of spare batteries so that you always have a charge.
Prep Time – This device comes with a very large chamber that is easy to load. You might think that the larger chamber means a longer prep time, but this unit can be ready to go in under a minute.
Temperature Settings – You have a great deal of flexibility with the temperature settings on the CFX, and the digital display clearly shows exactly where you are at. Even at the higher settings, the unit never feels overly hot in the hand.
Vapor Quality – If you are looking for huge plumes of vapor, we suggest looking at higher priced models. If, on the other hand, you are happy with a consistent taste and potency level, then this is indeed the unit for you.
Pricing – You will probably end up paying in the $180 price range for this model, which isn’t at all bad when you consider that it is able to handle a variety of different materials.
Guarantee – You have a couple of options here. You can stick with the 2-year warranty automatically provided, or you can pay an extra $25 to get a lifetime battery warranty, which we think is the better deal.
