From a distance, the VapeXhale could pass for an offbeat glass vase or decorative knickknack, a conversation piece. On closer inspection, it warrants even more curiosity. The cylindrical base has a single dial and an on-off switch, like the base of a slim blender.
But this $450 device is designed specifically for the consumption of marijuana.
As acceptance for marijuana grows, so too do the consumption options available. The cannabis industry is becoming a consumer market like any other, and the de rigeur accessory of the moment is a vaporizer. In a vaporizer, as in an e-cigarette, a battery-powered or electric atomizer heats loose cannabis leaves, or cannabis wax or oil, until the THC becomes a gaseous vapor that can be safely inhaled.
