I thought I was too dumb for the world’s most coveted cannabis accessory: the Puffco Peak, a $379.99 electronic device for vaping hash.
Billed as the first “smart rig,” the unit looks like some icicle technology from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, but gets you super-duper high.
This past summer I bricked two of the pricey units. Dead. Each time, the battery died quickly, or wouldn’t charge at all. Group dab sessions fell embarrassingly flat.
Puffco customer service reps were super helpful, but I decided to take my issues straight to the top: to Puffco CEO Roger Volodarsky. I met with Volodarsky in his gleaming, minimalist offices in downtown Los Angeles last month.
A bearded, 35-year-old New Yorker with arms sleeved in tattoos and an easy smile, Volodarsky assured me I am not dumb.
