The Kandy Pen vape pen kind of reminds us of something you’d find in a old lady’s purse—like a lipstick container—but it’ll get you hella high. The Kandy Pens dudes claim that their Kandy Pen vape pen, which they call the Sky Cloud, has 3-in-1 functionality. This means that the Kandy Pen will vape three separate marijuana products—dry herbs, concentrates and liquids.
The Kandy Pen completely incinerated our dry herb—rendering the dry herb chamber itself useless after just a single hit. What’s up with that? And the hit itself tasted like vaping a charcoal briquette—not the purple weed we packed it with. That’s the thing with these types of pens and vaping dry herb—the technology just isn’t there yet.

And we never got the eliquid attachment to work—it clogged before we could use it. The concentrate atomizer? It worked fine, but made our tasty wax taste a bit metallic.
Here’s the play-by-play: Our Sky Cloud vape pen arrived fully charged. Which is cool, because who the fuck likes waiting? We immediately bypassed the instructions and went straight to filling the concentrates atomizer. Like most pens of this species, there’s not a ton of room on the nail, but that’s a worthwhile sacrifice for such portability. We tested our pen with some HBC Tangerine wax from the Harborside Health Center. It tasted spectacular—like bright, tangy fruit in our dab rig. In the Kady Pen vape pen? Not so much. It tasted more like a transistor battery than Tangie.
Next we loaded up the dry herb atomizer with some Purple Kush. The chamber is really small—think one-hitter. No make that a half-hitter. We filled the chamber with maybe .3 grams of ground up herb and that shit went up hella quick and torched the hell out of the weed. The charred weed stuck to the inside of the atomizer rendering it useless.
We tried to test out the liquid atomizer with some Purple Kush oil. Pop the mouthpiece off and it’s supposed to be simple to fill. We discovered that it wasn’t easy at all and never got it to actually work.
The battery lasted about a day and the size of the vape clouds declined proportionately with battery life. KandyPens offers a lifetime warranty on the battery, which is cool. You’re on your own with the atomizers, however and don’t even bother with the dry herb or the e-liquid one actually—you’ll waste your weed.
We’re a bit disappointed with the Kandy Pen vape pen. It’s portable and easy to use, but isn’t exactly 3-in-one.
