High On Sex

Foria, $45

'Plant Matter'

Various Pipes, $10-$50

The Fatty Zone, Mountain View

Vapor Trails

Ago G5, $40

Most vaping aficionados will tell you that it isn't worth spending less than $100 on a vape pen. However, if you do go the economy route, the the Ago G5 has received good marks from Gizmodo and can accommodate herbs, waxes and oils. (NV)
