Product Highlight: Puffco Proxy Vaporizer

Now Available at Your Favorite New Orleans Smoke Shop

Can you believe it’s been four years since the Puffco Pro revolutionized the dab market and brought what was once a fringe activity for uber smokers into the mainstream? We can’t…but maybe that’s because of pandemic-related time distortion. Anyway, the masterminds at Puffco have done it again, and this time, they’ve made a system that boasts an old-school shape and cutting-edge technology that renders it capable of vaporizing wax, dabs, shatter, or crumble with a 3D ceramic coil. It builds on all the precision of the original smart dab rig, the Puffco Peak, but adds portability and style. Are you ready to hear more about the Puffco Proxy? Good! Keep reading.

Puff, Puff, Don’t Pass

Along with the Puffco Plus, Pro, and Peak, the Proxy is one of the groundbreaking company’s flagship products (you’ve got to appreciate their commitment to plosives). Launched in 2013, the company’s in-house design and engineering teams changed the vape game by ditching fibrous wicks, bowl glues, and plastics in the airpath and adding temperature controls capable of heating your concentrated smoking materials to a precise temperature—a big step up from a butane blow torch and butter knife. Since then, they’ve been awarded High Times’ Best Vaporizer prize at least seven times and garnered glowing reviews from happy users—because the creators themselves are happy users.

More About the Proxy Vaporizer

While the Puffco Peak Pro, a sleek unit whose shape suggests a love child between a spaceship and a lava lamp, is best suited for at-home use, the Proxy, with its petite shape, loves to go on field trips. It’s a portable, modular way to enjoy just about any extract, as long as it isn’t too sticky.

The curvy modular vaporizer isn’t just Sherlockian in its silhouette, it’s also ergonomic, with a removable base that accommodates third-party glass–so you can trick the Proxy out with custom work by your favorite artist. Its four temperature settings bring the contents of the ceramic bowl to whichever temp you want via a precise process that heats from multiple directions thanks to the heated side walls—whether you want max flavor (use blue, the lowest temp), max clouds (use white, the highest setting), or something in between, there’s a setting that’s right for you, and it only takes 20-30 seconds for your bowl to get there.

It only takes an hour and a half to charge, and your Proxy comes with a handsome carrying case and USB charger. Best of all, unlike other lower-end vaporizers on the market, this is an investment that will stand the test of time. OK, you probably won’t pass it down to your grandkids (by that point, their consciousnesses will probably have been transferred to the cloud and they’ll have completely different ways of engaging with legal smoking herbs). But it won’t break the first time you bring it to a festival—and if it does, you can take advantage of a one-year limited warranty policy.

We hope this has been as informative and seductive as a good dating ad, because we’re really in love with all Puffco products. The next thing to do is meet IRL, which you can do every day between 10 a.m. and midnight at Mushroom New Orleans, or place an order online. See you soon!
