The Extreme Q is a fantastic desktop vaporizer that allows for dual use with either a direct draw using a whip, or like the Volcano using a bag system. It is without question one of the best desktop vaporizers on the market for the price. Let’s take a quick overview once again before we get into the review itself.

  • Fully digital display
  • Comes with remote control
  • 3 fan speeds
  • Vapes material thoroughly
  • Easy to use
  • Best quality desktop vape for the price

  • Filling bags takes a while (4 minutes at lowest fan speed, 2 at highest)
  • Smaller herb chamber than the Volcano

The Review


Best Dry Herb (Medical Marijuana) Vaporizers for 2017 Reviewed -Arizer Extreme Q 4.0 ReviewIf you read the first page of my review, you know that for the longest time, all I used was The Volcano. I loved how well it vaped through my weed and how quiet it was compared to previous vaporizers I had used. I was so spellbound by it that it was quite sometime before I even tried anything else in the desktop category.

All that has changed, and with rapid advances being made in vape technology, it seems like I am trying a new vaporizer every few months now. Since I have started this review site I am inundated with suggestions for the best vaporizers for 2017.

One thing is for sure, I am continually amazed at how well some of these newer vaporizers are able to compete with what I always considered to be the benchmark.

In short, what I can say about the Arizer Extreme Q 4.0 is that I get vapor quality easily as good as I get from The Volcano, it’s just as quiet if not even quieter, it’s a pleasure to use and…it’s less than half the price.

Best Dry Herb (Medical Marijuana) Vaporizers for 2017 Reviewed -Arizer Extreme Q 4.0 ReviewThe Extreme Q features a fully digital screen which is easy to read and displays temperature settings, it features a surprisingly handy remote, and can be used either directly using the whip or, like the Volcano, using their bag system.

The vapor produced is as good as it gets in terms of purity of flavor and strength of the hit itself. The heating chamber is fully ceramic so the heat is retained well and purity of the flavor comes through quite nicely.

There are a few places where the Volcano does have The Extreme Q beat. One is the valve system which helps contain your vapor when changing bags on the Volcano bags which is absent from The Extreme Q bags. Although the valve system is nice, when you consider the price differential, for most The Arizer wins out.

The other small complaint I have about the Extreme Q is the length of time it takes to fill a bag. On the Volcano a bag is full within about 30 seconds, but with the Arizer, it takes 2 minutes on the highest fan speed and up to 4 minutes at the lowest. Again, not really a huge deal but something to consider when making your choice.

Best Dry Herb (Medical Marijuana) Vaporizers for 2017 Reviewed -Arizer Extreme Q 4.0 ReviewUsing The Extreme Q is a breeze, you choose your desired temperature setting using the up and down buttons, wait about a minute for it to heat up, the heat light let’s you know when it’s ready, insert your herb using the glass insert and then choose whip or bag and select between 3 fan speeds.

I find the slowest fan speed gives me to fullest vapor but it can take up to around 4 minutes to fill a full bag that way (it can feel like an eternity when you are in need of some medication). If I use the highest setting, it’s much quicker to fill the bag, maybe about half the time, but the vapor quality isn’t as good.

I find I use it mostly direct using the whip on the lowest fan speed and I just turn the fan off when I am holding in vapor. It just works best for me that way.

There are many reasons to be impressed with the Extreme Q. I’m quite happy with it and I use it mainly as a direct draw vape using the whip. Using the bags for me isn’t very convenient because I already have a Volcano. If I didn’t, I would definitely be using it that way too.

The vapor quality really is just as good, it’s just the time to fill the bag on the Volcano is so much faster and I can put so much more herb in the chamber with the Volcano than with the Arizer.

I wouldn’t call the Extreme Q the best desktop vape on the market but I rank it a very solid second and for those on a tighter budget, it will not disappoint.

The Verdict


Best Dry Herb (Medical Marijuana) Vaporizers for 2017 Reviewed -Arizer Extreme Q 4.0 ReviewThe Arizer Extreme Q is a great little desktop vaporizer that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone. Yes, there are a couple of downsides but they are minor and can easily be countered with one word: Price.

I would like to see a valve system for the bags and I wish I could get them inflated faster but at about a third the cost of the Volcano, those are minor details. That being said, if you are the type of person that has to have the best of everything, get the Volcano.

For anyone looking for a good, reliable, easy to use desktop vaporizer that won’t break your bank, check out The Extreme Q. There are many vapers who still consider it one of the best desktop vaporizers for 2017. One thing is for sure, it does not disappoint and will leave even the most seasoned vapers nodding their heads in complete enjoyment.

  1. The Arizer extreme Q has been pretty good so far. For the best quality out of this machine u really need to let it heat up for 7-10 minutes. The heating element heats quicky but the glass bowl takes a bit to get up to temp. Also with this unit u need to set the temperature higher than with others because the herb sits a good way above the heating element. I usually start at 200c and end at around 215c. Some people say this is too high but if u read the high times study on vaping they found that they got the most thc out of 220c. The bags are pretty good and probably my favorite way for beginners. Elbow packing is the best way to use the whip but only pack it about half full and don’t pack it too tight. Now with an elbow pack it is even farther from the heating element so I usually set it at 220c. One cool thing is the moth piece size will fit into a lot of water pipes so u can

    • Hey Hunter,
      True. I noticed I do have to set it a bit higher than I do with my Volcano for the same results but I’ve noticed it varies quite a bit between vaporizers anyway so it’s really about trial and error until you find the ideal temperature for you and the strain you are vaping. I usually end up maxing out most vapes toward the end of a bowl anyway. I also don’t pay any attention to what others recommend as far as temps because it really is so personal to taste. Glad you’re enjoying the Extreme Q! Happy vaping!
