Discontinued The Herbalizer

Enthusiast/Customizer
Just saw that the herbalizer team added bowls to their website. They must be absolutely high out of their mind if they think they can markup the bowl by 100-120% (I can’t remember if the bowls were $50 or $60).

My unit stills functions perfectly, but I’ve always wanted an extra bowl and kick myself for not getting one long ago.

$130 for a bowl is wild. They were definitely $60-70 before.

I’m wondering who is even gonna buy this thing when it relaunches. This is a decade old design and they don’t seem to be making any big changes. And the price is likely going to come in at the top of the market. I guess we’ll see…

It’s actually really grimey of them to price things items like this. The only people that want/need parts are current owners, being that there aren’t any being sold at this time. Even the screens and bags are overpriced.

I guess the new mantra is to rip off current owners and then target new customers. Idk.

I have a hard time seeing many current owners paying this amount and not sure the original part was too likely to break, but we don't know what the cost to produce a small run of these looks Iike (I'd assume it is a small initial run) or the profit margins here.

At the original price, I might be tempted to get a new one, and keep the original as a backup. But not at $100+. But the manufacturer also needs to do what they think is necessary to be profitable and survive financially.

Check if a local headshop has any

When the company shut down I was able to get one for $30 from one in my area

Almost there...
P.s: if I’m misunderstanding what the time frame for repairs to be available is, I’m sorry
Considering the original company went bust years ago and the units we have now are around 10 years old, they have served us very well.

New company, new rules unfortunately...
To me it makes sense that they want to get up and running again and ensure they can supply all their retailers with stock before looking into repairing units from years ago.

Who knows if there have been design changes made with these newer units??
They were very involved in the initial run but do not seem interested in posting on our community this time around.

Maybe post a wanted ad in the classified section and try and pick up an older working unit?
Or it may be time to look into other vaporizers that are commercially available at present with good customer service and repairs.

Not too many 10 year old vape companies out there still repairing their first offerings to the market.
Can only think of a few commercial companies still around and servicing their older units.
Lots of log makers here still service their first vapes from back in the day.

Herbalizer Production is imminent!​

An update from your friends at Herbalizer:

Consistent with our promise to our loyal customer base, we wanted to give you an update on the manufacturing status: Manufacturing of Herbalizers is now imminent!! We know this has been a long journey and many of you are probably as anxious for the release of the Herbalizer as we are.

Given our high standards for quality and the high-tech nature of the Herbalizer, we expected some supply chain hiccups and manufacturing wrinkles to occur, especially with what happened to global supply chains during the pandemic. However, there was one particular challenge which proved to be exceptionally difficult.

As you may know, one of the unique features of the Herbalizer is that the heated air never touches plastic as it moves through the hot-air pathway; it only comes in contact with glass, ceramic, and stainless steel, all of which are inert materials that don’t affect the flavor of the vapor. As an added measure to ensure the pure, clean quality of the vapor, even the plastic near the airway is a high-performance plastic used in high-temperature applications where being chemically inert is essential. Over the last several months, this plastic has been in high demand for defense/military purposes, and our order for that material was pushed out several times.

We finally have the necessary materials, production has already begun (as you see below), and we are looking forward to having completed units ready for purchase by the end of January!

Thank you for your continued support.

I am thinking that their return is not going to be as big as their initial release!
Everything they have added to their new site is WAY more expensive than they have ever been.
Bowls at $130 before taxes... Now on for $99, may be a sale but still MORE expensive than before.
Balloons are $50 for 4 plus taxes and shipping...

I am waiting to find out how much the actual unit is!!

My OG is still running so i will keep an eye from the curtains!

And today is the day I will bring Herbie out for a Xmas spin!

I am old enough to fondly remember these movies and the shape of the car reminds me of my Herbie!

Highellow all.

I have been using the Herbalizer since it came out but never with concentrates. I know the aroma pad that is stored in the lid can be used but am wondering if I can just put the concentrate on top of the herb. I have never done concentrates so advice would be great.

Thank you

Longtime Herbie user here too. I mostly use flower, but when I use concentrates, I prefer to skip the pad with a 'trate sammich' -- a layer of herb, a small dab, and more herb on top. Less is more for sure, and IMO the dryer the material the better. The best results I've had has been an 'old school hash' with the consistency of pressed kief. I can break up a tiny chunk and spread it around. Stickier material works too, the only thing to watch out for would be a particularly viscous dab dripping down to the bottom screen. But if you don't overdo it, you'll be fine. You may need to clean your top screen more often though. And grab a friend, because the bowl lasts FOREVER!!! :ko:
