Grenco Science Snoop Dogg g-pen
Packaging: The first thing I notice about the Snoop Dogg G Pen Herbal™? is the packaging. The box has a matte finish that's similar to a nice paperback book. Rather than make me think about crunchy stoners with Tibetan scarf wall art, the G Pen looks like latest Apple device. After fumbling with it for a few seconds, I realize that it swings across the top, revealing the vaporizer nestled in a plastic housing. I find myself wishing the box glowed like the briefcase from Pulp Fiction, but unfortunately it's just a cooler-than-normal package without any metaphysical properties as far as I can tell.
Contents: 1 Rechargeable Snoop Dogg | G Pen Battery™, 1 Snoop Dogg | G Pen Herbal Tank™, 1 G Pen USB Charger™, 1 G Wall Adapter™, 3 G Cleaning Tips™, 1 G Cleaning Brush™, 2 G Glass Sleeves™, 1 Snoop Dogg | G Pen Beach Towel*
Assembly and Looks: The G Pen itself is designed with a blue map pattern featuring Long Beach, California streets, which makes sense considering Snoop hails from the LBC. Like the box it came in, the pen has a rubbery finish that's nice to touch and has a expensive-feeling weight to it. After putting together the device and charging the battery using the Rechargeable Snoop Dogg G Pen Battery™, I load the G Pen Herbal Tank™ about half full with some three-week-old weed I bought from my friend's cousin who goes to NYU. As suggested by the directions, I make sure to first grind the pot so that it properly vaporizes. Then I use the G Cleaning Brush™ to mash down the weed, and pop the top mouthpiece part back on. To turn on G Pen, you need to press the power button five times, which sounds like a lot of times to press a button. But, then again, you don't want the G Pen to turn on in your pocket, do you?
Smoking: The actual smoking part works really well, which is great because that’s the whole point of this device. I press the button, hold, and inhale. It feels relatively smooth in my lungs, if a little bit harder to breathe in than if I were smoking out of a regular pipe. Still, when I exhale, there is a large plume of smoke and it smells like weed. Success! I wait a few seconds, then hit it again to similar
Final Thoughts: The Snoop Dogg | G Pen Herbal is a well-built device that does what it says it will. Unlike past G Pens, you can smoke actual weed out of it rather than just wax. It feels good in the hand, has a nice aesthetic to it, and comes with a bunch of cool extras. Though I've only used it once, it’s much better than an apple.
