The Prohibited In The 5th Degree Vaporizer is the latest and greatest gadget to hit the vaping market. This one takes a different approach to most products we promote on ElectronicCigarettesReviews.net but fits with many of our readers as well. It’s a vaporizer specifically for getting high to be blunt (pun intended). The 5th Degree Vaporizer is the most advanced device we’ve ever tried for buds and concentrates ever.

The device comes in 4 color options: purple, teal, white, and black. Our favorite is the teal color (called Jade on their site), and it looks fresh. This is one of the first devices to come ready to use for both dry herbs and concentrates. Most other vaporizers make you buy the concentrates adapter separate when the device is capable of multiple mediums. The other alternatives make you use the same chamber for both, and that is a mess if you’ve ever tried it.

This kit is priced at $199.99, and while that may initially seem high to some, it’s a fair price point. The Pax 3 Vaporizer which cannot handle concentrates and performs a little worse on the dry herbs is priced at $275. We see it as a considerable factor of going with the prohibited 5th Degree Vaporizer over Pax. You won’t find coupons for this product either because it’s brand new and they have no intention of discounting it for some time meaning $199.99 is the best price you’ll get anywhere.

We’ll keep monitoring sites to see if we can find it cheaper. Until then your best bet is going directly to the manufacturer, Prohibited, for your purchase. This will ensure the best warranty claim process in the unlikely event you need to use it. Speaking of warranty, the Prohibited line of Vaporizers are all backed by a limited lifetime warranty. That means you’re protected from anything happening to your device. Most products in this space only come with a 90-day warranty or less.

This kit comes with quite a bit of goodies included. You will get the vaporizer body, the magnetic dry herb cartridge, the magnetic concentrates cartridge, a magnetic charging cable, a wall adapter, pick tool, and brush tool. Everything you need to start vaping. The box it comes in is neat as well and features a slide-out portion with the vaporizer and cartridge in it. Then in the hidden tray are all the accessories. This box doubles as an excellent way to store the device and pack it up to go since it’s a higher quality box than you would expect.

The device comes with a charge to work right out of the box, but we do recommend charging it entirely before using it. The fully charged device can last weeks for concentrates and days for dry herb depending on how much you use it. The internal battery is much bigger than we expected. The device itself is charged by a magnetic charger that snaps on and off with powerful magnets. The cartridges drop in the same way and are held in place by magnets. The ease of use of this device is off the charts.

When you’re ready to vape dry herbs, you need to grind up the herbs into a fine consistency and then load the surprisingly large bowl. If you pack the bowl too tight, you might have problems getting great vapor on lower settings. You’ll have to adjust the temperature to the top level or load it more loosely. This is true with any dry herb vaporizer though. When done, just put the top on and drop the cartridge into place on the vaporizer.

The device has three heat level settings that you can cycle through by pushing the power button rapidly. It will then begin to auto-cycle, and you push the power button again when you’re at the level you want. Then to start vaping you hold the power button until the lights come on. This will begin the convection heating cycle, and you can take hit after hit as the device brings it to the perfect temperature and maintains it. The period of use lasts about 2 minutes, and for more substantially packed bowls, you’ll want to run a second cycle right away. Then when finished you scoop out the vaped material and refill as many times as you want. One bowl will probably be enough for most people though.

The concentrates cartridge is our favorite part of the Prohibited In The 5th Degree Vaporizer because it performs far better than anything on the market today. The cartridge is the first one to use dual-quartz and titanium to deliver some of the thickest and most consistent vapor out there. The concentrates are put directly on the coil too meaning there is no waiting time, just push the power button and it’s instantly vaporized. You can adjust the temperature setting in this mode also using the same process outlined above. Just merely load more in when you’re done and keep vaping.

The latest addition to the Prohibited in the 5th Degree line is the Dabber attachment that is available for $59.99 now. If you’ve ever dabbed or wanted to dab, this is going to be the best experience you’ll ever have with dabbing. The most prominent hassle in dabbing has always been using the torch and refilling it along with getting the temperature where you want it. You have always had to guess if the temperature was where you wanted it reasonably. Now with this attachment, torches, butane, and guessing the heat level are a thing of the past. The temperature can be precisely set up to 350 degrees Celsius, and as long as you have a battery charge, you won’t need to worry about running out of butane. The attachment snaps on to the top of the In The 5th Degree Vaporizer and has a glass tube that functions similarly to a nectar straw. Just let it heat up and then dab it on the cartridge filled with dabs. It is straightforward to use and quite clean overall. You can even travel with your prohibited still because the dab isn’t going through the actual device itself, just the attachment.

Coming later this year is the e-rig attachment that will make the Prohibited device by far the best on the market. We think it already is the best value on the market with the addition of the dabber attachment, but it goes that much further above with the e-rig. It is the supreme tool for super-concentrated vapor from dabs, with a heating capacity up to 450°C! The Prohibited portable E-Rig for concentrates comes with a glass water bubbler and interchangeable e-nails, all in a convenient travel case.

Maintenance is a breeze with the prohibited vaporizer line because the cartridges are the only place where the substances go through. With the Pax line, the vapor comes up through the body making it a nightmare to clean. With it all self-contained in the cartridges, you can even get a new cartridge and travel with the device anywhere in the world. That’s a pretty cool feature to have if you wanted to visit Colorado for a weekend of fun. You won’t need to clean the concentrate cartridge at all, just keep adding more. The dry herb cartridge only requires a quick clean with the brush to extend the life and effectiveness.

The Prohibited In The 5th Degree Vaporizer is by far our favorite alternative vape device available today. We look forward to releases of other models in the next two years, but this one is worst getting now. If you vape anything other than liquid, this is a must-buy for you. You won’t regret your purchase, and it comes with a 30-day full refund policy. What are you waiting for? Join the vape revolution now with the Prohibited line of vaporizers!

    I have stage 3 Bladder cancer, and was given the Prohibited in the 5th Degree. WOW!! This is the best thing next to the volcano. Thank You so much for making this product. Thanks to this I don’t have to go to the garage to smoke I use my Prohibited and I can vape around my hubby and not have to worry that he is getting any to create a false positive.

    I’m almost exclusive to using wax so this purchase was an easy decision. The price is great for the quality on wax alone and it comes with both cartridges so when I do use buds it is all included. The wax cart can hold a LOT of wax. So i load it up before i head out and can use it all day. The battery used is so minimal too. I can’t wait for the dabber though because that will be legit.

    That would be related to the product you’re using in it. I’ve used this device extensively and the taste only varies based on the material put in from my experience. Make sure you’re removing stems as well and grinding it up before use. Also adjust your heat setting lower and go from there.

    Overall the product is great, nice pull and doesn’t get hot. But I can’t even use it. I get this really weird nasty taste when I pull. The taste is unbearable. I would really like to enjoy this product if I could use it lol. I wondered if I was doing something wrong or missed any step. If anyone could help.

    I love the prohibited vape. So smooth and yet rich and flavorful vapor. It does matter what material you put into it. I only go dank so it’s always smooth. Be sure to grind up everything real nice to get the best experience.

    This device itself is amazing and a great standalone product. However it will fully be worth the cost when you get the dabber and e-rig when those come out. I use it daily and love the wax cartridge. It hits really well and performs exceptionally well every time and instantly.

    I used this at my buddy’s house and it was downright amazing. He showed me the concentrate cartridge and it makes me think regular bud is a thing of the past. One or two hits and we were flying!
