Weed culture has come a long way. No longer confined to shady dealers and sketchy transactions, these days in a growing number of states you can stroll into a hyper-clean shop reminiscent of an Apple Store and walk out with fresh flower, THC concentrate, edibles or whatever else you need to get properly high. And with weed going mainstream, that means there are now more products than ever for the cannabis connoisseur to choose from.

That's why we've decided to launch the first-ever Gear Patrol Cannabis Awards. Over the last several years, we've tested the best vapes, bongs, grinders and pretty much every other weed-related product on the market, keeping track of those we liked best and have continued to use in our daily lives. The following 20 winners are intended to help you cut through the noise of one of the country's hottest industries so you can make the best decision when it comes to your pot purchases. So without further delay, these are our favorite products from across the stoner spectrum.

How We Chose the Winners

These awards were given out to products that we consider the best in their respective categories. We took a number of criteria into account when deciding the winners, including expert feedback, public popularity, extensive research in the space and our own hands-on testing, all of which we've spent years gathering. The winning products were all pulled from our own buying guides and reviews, and in most cases are personally used (and loved) by our staff.

Best Overall Vape

Pax Plus

$200.00 (20% off)

An improvement over Pax's previous standard-setting vape, the Pax 3, the Pax Plus is compact, easy to use and works with both dry herb and concentrate. Designed with your convenience in mind, the vape features four distinct modes — Stealth, Efficiency, Flavor and Boost — that make customizing your experience as simple as pressing a button. The Pax Plus is also easier to clean than its predecessor, but still heats up just as fast and lasts just as long as the fan-favorite Pax 3. It's basically everything we want in a vape.

Best Vape for Sharing

Davinci IQC


Sometimes, whether you're vaping with a group or you're at a party, you're going to want to share your vape. But not all vapes are made to be shared. DaVinci's IQC, however, was designed to be the anti-bogarting vape. Chief among this vape's traits is its antimicrobial mouthpiece made from a proprietary, FDA-approved polymer called ShareSafe. And while this vape is resisting germs and microbes, it's also offering performance fit for a crowd, with a 5-inch ceramic long zirconium vapor pathway that allows for long, full pulls.

Best Splurge Smoking Device

Stündenglass Gravity Infuser


Endorsed by none other than Seth Rogen (more on him later), this ultra-premium gravity bong is a massive improvement over the ones you used to make in college. It's made of borosilicate glass and aircraft-grade anodized aluminum, is dead simple to use and delivers ultra-smooth hits that make its sky-high price tag seem reasonable.

Best Manual Grinder

Higher Standards Aerospaced


Our favorite old-school grinder is crafted from aluminum and features sharp, diamond-like teeth that make short work of even the stickiest of bud. It's also available in multiple colors and sizes, so it's easy to find one to suit your tastes and needs.

Most Effective CBD Joints

Dad Grass


Legal in all states thanks to its low THC content of <0.3 percent, Dad Grass's high-CBD pre-rolls are meant to give you a relaxing smoking experience — you know, like Dad used to get back in the day. These joints won't get you high, they'll just mellow you out a bit, and few things are better after a long day.
