There may, somewhere in world history, be a more ironic moment to launch a product named “Roam” than during a pandemic that has most of your customer base confined to their homes. But I’m struggling to think of one. (Maybe during the fall of ancient Rome?)
And while marijuana products in legal states and countries are moving faster than ever in this anxious age, with good reason, much of that growth is going into edibles. (Just ask my local socially-distancing dispensary, where any item you eat or drink is frequently sold out.) To continue to smoke or vape, given COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, is a thing that attacks the lungs? Or to quit, at least temporarily, and thus best preserve them? This question taxes the mind of many a stoner right now.
Grenco Science, makers of vaporization devices including the G Pen, soldiered on regardless. The company had a battle plan for its high-tech $250 handheld concentrate bong, the Roam. The plan involved bringing the product out April 1, in time for 420 — once considered among the year’s biggest celebrations, now more of a “maybe we’ll risk being 6 ft away from a joint?” abstraction — its marketing replete with models using the device in front of French and Spanish landmarks.
Coronavirus came for us all, for those countries more than most, and the Roam-an legion rode out anyway. Alea iacta est.
In one crucial respect, I’m glad they did roll out. And that crucial respect is: I’ve tested it. There can be no doubt, the Roam is the smartest, smoothest, tastiest, most efficient and effective pocket-sized weed delivery device I’ve ever tried. It heats up fast, won’t make you cough, and is if anything a little too easy to use. Insert your own review here on whether that is warranted under present circumstances.
“… Roam is the smartest, smoothest, tastiest, most efficient and effective pocket-sized weed delivery device I’ve ever tried.”
The Roam revolutionizes the bong concept by putting its water tube on the inside (making it much more stoner-proof than the Puffco Peak, the last portable bong to wow design fans). Its temperature is adjusted on an LCD display on the side, no app required (unlike Pax and Firefly devices). And that temperature can go all the way to 800F.
