In this post, we are reviewing the Ice Cream Dry Herb vaporizer from Lookah.
This is a new entry-level cannabis vaporizer that came onto the market in 2020.
Lookah has been manufacturing fancy glass pipes, bongs, and dab rigs since 2009. As more and more cannabis users like to use water pipes with vaporizers, Lookah has been making their own vapes as well. First, they started with wax pens and 510 threaded vapes and the Ice Cream is their first vaporizer for dry herb.
The Design of the Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer
The Ice Cream is a simple, round-shaped designed vaporizer with a 950mAh built-in battery. Despite the reasonable size battery, it is surprisingly lightweight at a tiny 75 grams. To clarify, that is indeed very light for a dry herb vape. After all, it is a vape with a size of 115mm high, 35mm wide, and 38.2mm deep.
The Ice Cream is built with a round-shaped, top-loading ceramic 5 pin baking chamber. The chamber is powered by a nano black ceramic heating element.
The magnetic mouthpiece resembles the look of an ice cream swirl, hence the name. Also, there is a power button and an LED light on the front of the vaporizer.
On the bottom of the device, you’ll find the micro USB charging port and a portable cleaning tool. Whenever you need assistance with packing or cleaning the chamber, you can slide out the stainless steel cleaning tool from the bottom.
What’s in the Box?
In the box, you’ll find the Ice Cream vaporizer, a micro USB charging cable along with a user’s manual. It is not the most accessorized portable vaporizer on the market, perhaps an extra mesh screen or two would be a nice addition to the kit.
How to Use the Lookah Ice Cream
Just like most portable vaporizers these days, the Lookah Ice Cream is very easy to use.
First, take off the mouthpiece and pack the chamber with ground dry cannabis flowers. The chamber is a fair size, takes about 0.5 to 0.7 grams of ground marijuana.
Once your chamber is packed, put the magnetic mouthpiece back into place.
At this point, press the power button five times in a row to turn the device on. Next, press the power button to toggle between the four preset temperatures.
At every press, you jump up one level, indicated by the below color LED lights.
Green – low temperature – 392 Fahrenheit or 200 Celsius
Blue – medium-low temperature 410 Fahrenheit or 210 Celsius
Purple – medium-high temperature – 428 Fahrenheit or 220 Celsius
White – high temperature – 446F Fahrenheit or 230 Celsius
After 4 minutes the LED flashes three times and the vaporizer shuts off itself. If you’d like to keep going with your vaping session, simply press the button five times again to turn it back on.
The Purple and White temperature levels produced somewhat of a burnt taste for me. So I found myself using the two lower temperature settings most of the time.
The Lookah Ice Cream vaporizer is a unique entry-level dry herb vaporizer that retails for about 80 bucks at the time of this review. It has a reasonably large baking chamber and very easy to use.
As constructive feedback, it could be a good idea to include a replacement screen in the kit. Additionally, a silicone cover for the mouthpiece might also be useful. Just like most portable vaporizers, the vapor path is pretty short and the mouthpiece tends to get hot after a period of time.
The Ice Cream is a simple to use entry-level vaporizer to get you started on the vaping journey.
