Vaporizers — those small, battery-powered devices for gently heating instead of burning cannabis and extracts — are making fans of folks who thought the herb was their enemy. Listen to this week’s episode of The Hash to hear our own Max Savage Levenson share his story of the power of the vape pen — and how it may be a great alternative for those negatively affected by marijuana.

We asked Max what model vape pen salvaged his relationship to cannabis, and he says it’s likely an O.pen-style vape pen that works with cannabis extracts that come in the form of oil. Here is some of the best vape pens of 2015, courtesy of our media partner, Smell the Truth.
