Grenco Science G-Pen Elite Review – Well Rounded Herb Vape
Dry herb vaping technology is changing. Our G-Pen Elite review will cover how the newest vaporizer from Grenco Science is taking advantage of new technology to give you a better, more comfortable and more convenient experience. The famous Grenco Science G-Pen is a widely popular product for herbal vapers. If there was any issue is was that sometimes the materials could get a little singed because they would come in direct contact with the heating element. Not anymore.
The G-Pen Elite features ceramic heating technology so the dry herb never comes in direct contact with the actual heating element. This will go a long way to ensure that you are vaporizing your materials and not burning them! Along with the ceramic heating the new features of the G-Pen Elite include custom temperature control, longer battery life, a new mouthpiece design that does not burn your lips and a rounded form that is comfortable to hold and outstanding for portability.
Before we get too far into the G-Pen Elite review I wanted to give you a few specifications and features along with the nuts and bolts. That way you can decide early on if this is the vaporizer for you and if it isn’t, I don’t want to waste your time. So, to be clear, the G-Pen Elite is for dry herb only, you cannot vaporize waxes, dabs or concentrates. It is not a dab pen, it is a dry herb vaporizer and a very good one at that. The heating element is 360 degrees encompassing the entire ceramic heating chamber. This means faster heat-ups than other ceramic vaporizers and very even, efficient use of your materials.
The G-Pen Elite sells for $149.95 with free shipping. You get the vaporizer, a charger, G-Pen tool, brush, G-Pen card and user manual. The chamber capacity is 0.75 grams so it is a much larger capacity than the typical 0.5 gram heating chamber. The 2200 mAh battery gives you ample battery life for a full vapor session rather than just a couple of hits.
Despite the larger capacity chamber on long lasting 2200 mAh internal vaporizer battery, the G-Pen Elite is so portable it could also fit into the vape pen category.
A bright, OLED screen gives you a constant read-out on your selected temperature and battery life status. The temperature control range is from 200 degrees F to 428 degrees F. For our international and metric leaning audience, that is 93 degrees C to 220 degrees C.
G-Pen Elite Specifications
One of the biggest features here is that the Elite is a ceramic vaporizer. Many feel that ceramics are better for heating and vaporizing dry herbs. The reason is because metallic heating chambers may be more susceptible to burning and wasting your expensive materials. With ceramic heating, metal does not contact your material.

Who Is The G-Pen Elite For?
The G-Pen Elite is an herbal vaporizer designed to vaporize the active ingredients of dry herb materials. Medical marijuana patients may benefit from using a dry herb vaporizer as opposed to smoking. A University of California San Francisco study found that the vapor produced by a vaporizer does not have the carbon monoxide that you get with smoke. In fact, they found that the vapor was comprised largely of the actual active ingredients of the herb. As a result, if you are a medical marijuana patient be aware that the vapor from a vaporizer delivers much more TCH than you will get in a puff of smoke.
When you smoke medical marijuana, you are still exposed to all of the byproducts of combustion. On top of that, combustion destroys most of the THC and or CBD. Combustion is also uncontrollable. Even when you are not inhaling the smoke and stink continues to emanate from a lit marijuana cigarette. As a result, much of your expensive medical marijuana simply, pardon the pun, goes up in smoke. With a vaporizer you get mush more mileage out of your materials.
You may also want to check the laws in your state or jurisdiction. For example, in New York State medical marijuana patients are not allowed to smoke but can use a vaporizer.
Vaporizer For Smoking
Can you use a vaporizer for smoking tobacco or other herbs? Yes you can. Using a vaporizer for smoking is not as popular as using an electronic cigarette with e-liquid. Be that as it may, some tobacco consumers who enjoy the taste of real tobacco but want to avoid the combustion may find that using a vaporizer to smoke fits the bill. If you do use a vaporizer for tobacco, we recommend finding some organic, untreated tobacco. No sense vaporizing all of Big Tobacco’s chemical additives.
Herbal smoking goes back many generations in a variety of cultures. Herbs like lavender, lemongrass, sage and others have been used in ceremonies or for enjoyment. Using a vaporizer to enjoy a variety of herbs is preferred by many herbal traditionalists.
