The Ghost MV1 Vaporizer

This is the one guys, the vape we’ve all been waiting for.

It’s called the Ghost MV1 vaporizer, and it’s a very impressive portable unit designed for use with both dry herb and concentrates. Check out my new MV1 review video above to see what this thing is all about, and keep scrolling for an extended comparison video with other top-rated vapes.

You’re lookin at on-demand convection heating with this one, which means it heats your material solely with super-heated air, and you heat it up for just one draw at a time for max efficiency.

Ghost Vapes MV1The metal alloy body feels very solid & durable, and it has a bit of weight to it. It’s one of the sexiest and most elegant vaporizers I own, it makes you want to keep it out on the table as a statement piece.

It has a glass mouthpiece that’s retractable, a ceramic herb chamber that’s removable, a long-lasting battery pack that’s removable, and all of the internals can quickly be accessed for easy cleaning.

The flavor, smoothness, and potency of the vapor it produces is extremely impressive, even for me who owns just about 200 vapes. Vapor this cool and comfortable is not something you typically see in a portable vaporizer, it’s usually reserved for top-tier desktop units.

You can take two draws in under a minute and be good to go with this one, I’m serious. It’s very rare to feel the “results” of your vaping so quickly. Guess what else? There’s no draw resistance. Nada.

Click here to buy one from the official Ghost Vapes store. I’ve helped them with a few aspects of this vape and they do compensate me if you buy one through my referral link, but I truly feel you will be as impressed as I am with it and your support means the world to me!

UPDATE 9/14: Those of you who reserved units during pre-sale are now starting to receive your vapes, and Ghost will be opening up their store to the public as soon as everyone on the waiting list is given the chance to order. Stay on top of the forum for the latest updates.

UPDATE 8/31: I posted a must-read update on the forum today, stock is arriving!

UPDATE 8/29: Stock should start arriving at Ghost’s warehouse at the end of this week, please stay tuned to the forum for updates on how to be first to order.

UPDATE 8/22: I’ll have a new update coming this week and I should know for sure when Ghost will start taking orders.

UPDATE 8/3: Outside factors have caused the release of the vape to be delayed a few more weeks, Ghost Vapes does not want to start taking orders until they have physical stock in their US warehouse. I will be posting a full updated MV-1 review in the next day or two, and then a comparison video shortly after that where I’ll talk about how it stacks up against my other top picks. Please standby for further updates, thank you!

UPDATE 7/13: I just added new pics of the Satin Silver MV1 below! Review ETA is still in two days ;-)

UPDATE 6/29: The new ETA for this vape is 7/15, two weeks past my original estimate. It is in production and everything is still looking great, they are just perfectionists and won’t launch their store until they’re certain they have stock that can start shipping out right away. My full review will be posted at the same exact time their website goes live, we are coordinating that effort, and that’s when I’ll be posting my referral link to order as well. If anyone is interested in a matte finish they will have a Satin Silver color also that is mostly matte with only chrome accents (see pics below). ALSO, if you haven’t seen it I am offering a personal buy-back guarantee for the MV-1, solely because of how much I believe in it and how much I think you’ll like it. Stay tuned for updates!

UPDATE 6/16: I just got my final production unit and I’ll be putting it through extensive testing for at least the next two weeks. As of today the ETA for my full review is 7/1, and that’s also when orders will open up on their website. The MV1 is already in production so there will actually be some stock when it first goes on sale, but if you happen to miss out on the first batch you’ll be able to put in a pre-order to reserve your spot in line for the next shipment, which won’t be far behind. Check out the new pics I just took of my final units!

  • First of all great vape & vapour quality
    Is definitely next level….,,
    But please someone tell me where in
    The blue hell do you download the
    APP from ???? Anyone

  • Bud you sold out… Endorsing that POS unit and claiming it’s practically the best vape around is total bs. And I know for a fact you knew that too.. So whatever hate and criticism you receive from hyping te Ghost MV1 is defenitely well deserved. So thanks for lying to us all and hurting your credibility.

  • Got my mv1 and all I can say im really disappointed. From day 1 this thing was overheating my sessions were cut drastically I eventually had fo switch out to storz and bickel’s mighty to finish my session. One thing I found really annoying was the noise it makes when you take a hit, goddamn sounds like you are going down an elevator. As for potency it was decent when it actually worked but definitely does not take 2 hits and be good to go like bud claimed in the video. Waste of money to be honest.

      • Hey bud what is your email I would like to send you an email and send my ghost mv1 to you for a refund. Thank you bud, much appreciated Eli .

    • Yes John I can confirm min is doing the same thing it is my second day owning the ghost Mv1 and it is not working out for me either when I first bought this thing I was reassured by bud that if I tested it within two days and did not like it I could send it to him And he would check it out make sure I didn’t scratch it up and then give whoever sends one to him that bought it under his link would get a refund from him I was wondering how you do that?

  • What does it mean when 3 red LED’s appear followed by a long vibration when on a level other than six? I think it is an air flow issue but don’t see it documented anywhere. I will be half way through a session (primarily when sharing with others) and when holding the vape button, this behavior begins a few seconds in effectively ending the session until it cools down. Is this normal? Does this mean it is packed too tightly or the unit is too hot? Aside from that issue, this is one of the best vapes I have ever used. I’m a week in and my 4 Crafty’s (I’ve been an S+B purist up until now) have been reduced to one. Love the review, recommendation and experience. Excellent, excellent job and thanks for all you do for the vaping community.

  • Disappointed
    I as well got my brand new mv-1 a couple days ago and have to disagree with the positive comments about it. (I may have gotten a defective unit I won’t know until ghost gets back to me). Vapor production is terrible and very uneven heating is what I’m mainly seeing, and I’m not a stranger to high-end Vapes or their quirks and tricks of using them.
    So for me I’m disappointed in both the unit and the review (this will be the third vape I’ve bought mainly from buds review ) but we’ll see what happens bwhen ghost gets back to me.

  • Got a black chrome one today. I kinda wanted nickel but I didn’t want to wait any longer. Good decision on my part! After I charged the battery with the free quick charger I got the thing loaded and fired her up. Outstanding, love it but it’s got a little getting used to. Thanks for your recommendation. Tell them they need hats and t-shirts

  • Hello Vape Critic community,

    Bud, I really appreciate you taking your time to help us make informed decisions. I notice you have some skeptics and other impatient stoners commenting (cmon guys.. read) and Im hoping this post helps clear the air. I received my Ghost today and Im commenting to verify Bud’s review in that it is indeed a good vape.

    A really, really good vape. Totally worth the wait. Granted, Ive only used it a few times (again, got it today), but I am more than satisfied. Bud has endorsed a solid product (pending quality control?).

    That being said, I will disagree with you Bud, on one thing. I dont feel the draw resistance is “practically none”. This was one of the reasons I bought it, unfortunately. Im not saying its hyperbole, but not what I thought considering your opinion in the video.

    Be that as it may, its the best portable Ive used (Crafty, Pax, Solo) and better than most desktops, if not all of them.

    I hope you’re making money off of this – thanks for what you do.


  • The only thing I wanted to know was the only thing you never mentioned: how long the battery lasts (considering all the heating variables)……

  • Hey Bud, Just purchased a black chrome MV1 and am pretty stoked, but what’s the deal with the app? I went to download it to my iPhone and it’s nowhere to be found. One of the reasons that’s I got the vape was the precise temperature control that the app offers. When will it be available? Seems a bit hasty to release the vape before the whole package is complete.

  • Hey bud just wanted to check with you. Any idea when we should be getting that second email? I got mine on the 31st Oct. but still haven’t gotten another one. Thanks a lot again!

  • After reading the comments an seeing how the FF2 dropped in score makes me think if this will be over hyped by the critic only time will tell.

  • This guy has resorted to name calling? I am a tool and a dodo bird for making a comment? WOW! Ghost, is this guy really your mascot?

    • Well, sorry Damon, you’re kind of being a tool and I’m pretty sure you are a Dodo Bird. You obviously just signed up for this site without doing a lick of research or reading a single thing about what is going on with the MV1 release. You don’t know this is a brand new start up company with no retailers yet, much like some other popular vaporizers that have come to market recently, the Grasshopper comes to mind immediately. There is something called the “internet” that we have today where you can buy goods and products without having to go to a brick and mortar building. Look into this, there are thousands of companies that do business this way now…right now, TODAY!
      They are trying to launch their dream company, which you can’t understand…you just want a quote for your insurance company so they can pay for your free vaporizer. You’re mad they didn’t drop everything they’re working so hard for to put your wants ahead of everybody else on the planet.
      If you did anything else but raise red flags and bitch about what you don’t know about, you WOULD know the Vape Critic is offering his buy back guarantee without the backing of Ghost. It’s been thoroughly discussed everywhere and you would have known these things if you would have taken a even a moment to do a modicum of research before starting to raise your uninformed red flags.
      You wonder if he shares in this company? Only you do, because everyone who has been following this knows that he has no ownership in Ghost at all. He did give suggestions during development, some they used, some they didn’t…but being the new tool in the shed you wouldn’t know about these things. He’s backing the vape because he believes in the vape, after extensive testing.
      There are no retail outlets selling the MV1 yet, well, because it hasn’t been released yet…but you want your “quote” before anyone can even buy one. Why do you think you’re so special that you can go directly to the front of the line? No offense, but you really sound like a self entitled pompous butt rash.
      This is again, obviously, the first and only time you’ve even heard of the Vape Critic, or you would know you kill all of your credibility by calling him “unprofessional”. I don’t need to say a single thing more than that to defend him…you’re the one who made yourself look really bad here…you should probably just shut up and go away, just a suggestion.
      And I fire customers like you all the time from my businesses. You’re ignorant and ill informed beyond redemption and more trouble than you’re worth. If I were Ghost, I would fire you as a customer and make damn sure you couldn’t get your hands on my product. I know you would go out of your way just say something negative and disparaging about it, no matter your true feelings.
      People like you aren’t happy unless they’re bitching about something…and I wouldn’t give you the chance.

  • [email protected] BUY IT! What an expected comment coming from someone who lacks professionalism. So basically, I hit the nail on the head with my comment.

    I didnt know you were so well off that you dont need my business. Must be nice eh?

  • Isnt anyone else curious to know why reputable retailers wont be selling any ghost products? Companies have the option to become a retailer, yet I cannot find any retailer, Canada or USA. So, ghost has become the manufacturer AND retailer of their product. HUGE RED FLAG.

    I am a medical cannabis use as I am sure many here are. In Ontario Canada, a vaporizer is considered a medical device. Therefore, the cost is eligible for insurance coverage. In order for me to take advantage of insurance coverage, I require a quotation for the product.

    I currently own several vaporizers, where the retailers were able to provide quotes that I submitted to insurance. I would buy the product outright and insurance reimburses me.

    I have requested a quote from Ghost for their vaporizer and this seems like an impossible task. Another RED FLAG in my opinion.

    I would suggest to people not to rush into an impulse purchase of this product. Let the other suckers try it out and see if it lives up to the hype. We have seen this hype before from EVERY other vape manufacturer. Dont you people wonder why the Vape Critic is the ONLY one that tested the product? Why hast anyone else? And if they have, why isnt it public news? Another RED FLAG.

    So the Vape Critic is willing to buy back the unit after 3 days? You people realize its Ghost that will be refunding the Vape Critic, I hope. Makes me wonder if this guy has shares in this company. Pretty bold to offer a “buy back” guarantee.

    I for one will hold onto my money as you all should, and let the public inform the public on this product’s capabilities, not some guy with “special interests”

    If the product is well received from the public, great! Let them be the judge, not some dude with a score sheet that looks like a report card from preschool.

    • Yes it looks like tomorrow their store will be ready to start taking orders from those that pre-registered, but I will confirm this on the forum tomorrow morning.

  • Hi Bud, one question about the rating. I just had a look on the comparison table in the ghost vap article. In this table the ff2 got only 84 Points. But i had a look to the ff2 article. There the rating is 95 (Same as ghost mv1) i am a little bit confused about that???? Because til now i took your advices very serious. Hopefully you can give me an answer because I would like to have the ghost too :)

    • Hey I’m very sorry about that!! That was an oversight on my part, I updated my ratings recently and somehow I missed updating the Firefly 2 page, I just made the change.

      My apologies for the confusion and thanks very much for bringing it to my attention!

        • My rating system used to be different, I recently re-worked the whole thing. A 95/100 rating previously meant it was a Tier 1 vape, there were multiple vapes with that rating and I only had four ratings: Tier 1, 2, 3 & 4.

          After the MV1 came out and I updated my rating system the FF2 dropped significantly.

          • Other ones too, I’m checking around my site and either I somehow missed more than just the FF2 or somehow my changes got reverted by mistake, but I’m going through the others and updating now. DaVinci IQ and PAX 3 used to also be Tier 1 and dropped a bit with the new ratings.

  • I got an e mail that I was one of the first to sign-up for the goast but can’t put my Creat card in,are they taken payments yet. Thanks Mary McKinney

  • This thing looks like a light saber, or some sci-fi weapon.

    It’s funny reading all the bitching and whining in this thread about it taking a minute longer to come out, what fortunate times we are in to have such problems.

    Stoked it’s getting close to coming out

  • Why arent Canadian retailers jumping all over this? This has me concerned, as a Toronto Vaporizer customer, where I first learned of the Ghost MV1. So ghost is going to retail their own product, fair enough, but will I be able to purchase from your referral link so you can collect your commission, and I still receive the free charger you are offering? I live in Toronto Canada.

  • Hi, Bud, a friend was selling me on the Firefly 2, so I did a little research and found your reviews, on your recommendation I have reserved a Ghost MV1. However, I am in the UK, no I am wondering as someone below in the comments asked, will it be shipped overseas.

  • I’m eager to get my hands on this love my firefly2 took me a minute but my technique is down like riding a bike now is this flavor up to par with the firefly2? Is the referral link for the charger wit purchase still active or is it useless until they activate pre orders? I much rather it take longer than get sub par product but a official date would be nice I just want an awesome vape lol but yeah flavor in comparison to firefly2?

  • @bud – are they going to push back the release date then to sept? Rather have a decent product than thing that comes out with any kind of problems – however from your video it seems the unit was functioning superbly.

  • For all of you guys wetting themselves because it is taking longer to release, take a chill pill and flog your dolphin. Geeziz. Relax!

  • hi @bud @vapecritic i don’t know how to pay your attenction but i really need an answer, i’m an european customer and i want to buy that beast, so, over knok when do you think it gonna come out i need to know if they gonna sold the mv1 in europe, or if they could send it

  • Wow only 2 year warrenty is a bad sign compared to pax amd davinci……makes me think there may be to many parts that can get faulty with time. Also with the high price tag at least a 5 year warrenty is a must to show your product will last. Would hate this to be like my crafty where after 2 years it was toast and warrenty over… ..made the crafty not worth the price

  • All bud said on this was bull**** .. still not out and still making us wait with no update .. if you ask me this was just to promote the company to see how many ppl will be intrested and then start making product..

  • Hey. I watch a lot of your videos and I’ve seen you use a “scooper” (a hand tool with a scoop or spooned end). In a few vape reviews you’ve used this to load a vape, etc. Would you mind letting me know what that is and if you’d recommend it for loading? Thanks.

  • Oh, other questions relating to this vape…

    I have a Firefly, Davinci IQ, and a Mighty. Different experiences across all three. However, ease of use is key. Temperature control is a one touch affair. It looks like I physically have to look down at the device to cycle through temperatures. Can I use my pinkie or index finger one handed with single presses to cycle through the temperatures or do I have to cycle through those LED light submenus? One handed operation with minimal futzing around is key. I can raise up the temp with the davinci or run a smartpath with single button presses on the side. The Mighty, same deal, simple button presses. When I had the crafty I could cycle between two heat settings with button presses. Easy. One handed type stuff yo.

  • Hey! What happened to the free charger with purchase? I clicked on your referral link when it came up and reserved or at least marked the items as wanting to buy and linking my email. Was that enough to make that work at that very short period of time you had it up on your website? You took down all of the mentioning of that now. I went back through all of the pages and want to make sure I’m good. Thanks

  • Curious if one could use the concentrate pad and put some flowers on top. Is there enough room in the crucible on top of the concentrate pad? a dab of cbd oil with some flowers on top is my favorite.

    • Hey there, had a quick question… kinda complicated, thc-v has quite a high boiling point. 428 °F (220 °C). Now, would I actually have to set it that high to get the benefit of this chemical? It’s very useful for my condition, i’m not talking about normal thc… I assume you now that.

      I realize you’d probably never set a convection vape that high, but with a close temperature would you still get that compound from your herb? Thanks for you answer in advance.

  • Your killing me with that new review, need this vape already! Quit teasing me!

    Seriously though, I had ordered a mivape and luckily the store was out of stock and had to refund my money, then I found your website when looking for an alternate vape and you sold me on the ghost mv1. Been waiting anxiously for the release, probably more anxious than I should be cuz I got no good vape to use right now. My solo is about dead and barely works anymore. I made the mistake of taking it all apart to clean it real good and pulled the oven out, no the temp control is all over the place and doesn’t hold steady. Anyways, still holding my money for the mv1, just hope it actually does come out soon!

  • I hope they design a glass crucible so you could vape concentrates like my favorite vape, the cloud evo’s vapexnail. I’m not a big fan of the concentrate pads. But they are pretty cool and better than nothing.

  • Hey Bud,
    It amazing that it has all the great features that were missing in some of the top vapes.
    Looking forward to getting one asap.

  • I enjoyed the new video. Had one question, Will this vape include the hard case that’s pictured on Ghost website or will that be a accessory available later on?Thanks for all your hard work Bud with this vape and being patient with the complainy vape divas out there. I know the delay is out of your control. I’m very much interested in adding this one to my collection. I have many vaporizers that you have reviewed and don’t regret buying any of them bc they all work very good and all have a different purpose depending on my mood and vaping situation. FYI for any herbalizer owner’s out there, I have found that you can use Volcano Solid Valve kit on the herbalizer, you just have to hold it down, it’s way more relaxing and you can change bags, even put turkey oven bags for 2 bucks a box at any grocery store.
    Thanks again

  • UPDATE: I just posted my new review of the MV1 at the top of this page, it’s a revised version of my original video with a lot more info in it.


    I want to be able to return this product with my money back if it is not worth it.

  • I think we the customers should get a much better price on the units for being so patient and giving them a chance to sell their product and make alot of money. instead they decided to overcharge us for batteries.that was not wise. We may just have to wait and see what kind of defect rate these units really have.thats why as many have stated, they must include a good warranty (lifetime) or i would advice not to buy a disposable unit for that price. Ive seen this happen with plenty of new units reviewed by people, they come out people praise them until the forumns get flooded with unsatisfied customers.thats why i dont believe reviews until actual mass-produced units are well tested and priced accordingly.

  • Still not released. There must be a problem. It would be wise to wait for a couple months so they can get all the bugs worked out.

  • ive been smoking joints for years now but it’s getting to the point my throat can’t take it anymore especially that last third. I can afford anything you’ve reviewed so far but I can’t afford to make a mistake and buy another. Not really interested in bags, whips seem like they’re just going to get nasty after a while and some of those glass ones will get knocked over by me or one of my lap dogs. So I’ve narrowed it down and for me the Mighty or the Ghost look to be the most sensible choice. The reliability complaints towards the Mighty have me leaning to the Ghost so much so I’ve put my name in que there. Finally getting around to the question. I noticed in your Ghost review video on the 3rd or 4th draw you appear to be hacking up a lung. Many reasons for this one being a harsh hit,so my question is does this thing hit easier and cooler than a joint?

  • Are you going to be to get a ‘view out on the loto lux coming out? I’m curious about it’s induction heating. Looking forward to it and it’s comparison to the other top dogs.

  • Hey, Bud!

    I have this question, I don’t really need a portable one, it will just be a little comfortable but nothig else.

    How would you compare it to VapeXhale EVO?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

  • I am totally down to buy this and check it out to see if it really is the best vaporizer for me. What I look for in vaporizers is its ability to get strong rips and have good taste, and have a long battery life. How much material can fit in a bowl for this vape?

    I currently have the Pax 2 so hopefully this vape is a huge upgrade.

    I am very excited for there to be a money back guarantee in case it doesn’t live up to the expectations. How can I assure I order the link with that money guarantee option?

    ** Lastly, Bud, can you please do a video where you complete multiple sessions at different heat levels. I wanna see how this thing constantly rips. Not just a video where u show two hits and thats it. Thank you, big fan of your work and I trust your word! Keep flying high ~ !

    • I don’t think there is such a thing as a money back guarantee in the marijuana industry. Once you’ve used it doesn’t it become a federal illegal piece of merchandise?

      • Try and keep up with the class, Bruce. You can find the link to Bud’s Money Back Guarantee below. Absolutely astounding offer too, IMHO.

  • Requested info from ghost vapes twice. No reply. And yeah, $120 for a 2nd battery and fast charger? I’m quite leary of shelling out $300 for this 1st time product from a rather stealth new company. And maybe I’m wrong here, but has Bud stopped reviewing other new products (arizer solo 2), just to push the mv1?

  • Battery 60$ + Fast Charger 60$…come on. The Battery inside the Ghost Battery is worth 10$. I think, this is the try to make a better Firefly 2. It use the same methode. But…this method is shitty :-) Firefly has proved it twice! ;-)

    • You won’t need the spare battery, only if you want a backup, and if you go through my referral link to order you’ll get the fast charger included for free (limited time)

  • Hey Bud,
    Very excited about this vape, looks like the one I’ve been waiting for. I reserved mine, but how do I make sure I purchase it through your link so I can take advantage of your very generous (amazing, really) money back guarantee. In my opinion you’re going way above the bar on this offer, so I’m pretty sure I won’t be sending it back. Can you tell us what the manufacturers warranty is and where we could find it on the site? I couldn’t find it anywhere.
    Thanks, Ben

    • Hey Ben I’m going to post my referral link front and center once they start taking orders, and I’ll make sure to send out notifications on all platforms. They’re actually still in the process of finalizing the terms of the warranty, please standby for the final word on that, but I was told it will be “years”

  • Hi Bud thank you so much for all your time that you put into this vaperizer , you certainly do deserve something you’re good to all of us I remember with the firefly I hated it it didn’t work no matter how hard I tried but you took interest and you were able to get a refund for me or an exchange I’m sorry and that’s when I bought the mighty I trust everything that you say about this vaporizer as I know you’re on our side I put my order in but how do you get credit for it if I put it in on the ghost website

  • If you had to compare the firefly and ghost mv1 side by side with taste, smell and size, which would you prefer?
    I am stuck between the two and I am going to be living in an illegal state for my college years, and I smoke for my anxiety and naseua
    I feel like these two would be the best in those categories, I cant decide and I wanted to ask your raw opinion if you did not mind.

    • @Albert: Check out my overall VapeRatings for each unit in the chart posted under my review. Overall the MV1 gets a pretty significantly higher score, but taste and smell specifically are not night & day.

      MV1 has no draw resistance (big difference) and there’s no stirring required (another big difference)

  • Bud, can you please include in your vid, or make a vid where you unlock the settings and vape at the highest setting you can stand it? Now I’m curious about that green section where the crucible goes. I’ll post this question also in vape life.

  • When and where can I purchase this, I want a good semi portable and this one looks like it is the cat’s meow.

    • Oil?

      I really hope this will work with concentrate as no convection vape has satified that itch yet

  • As soon as I saw the vapor production video I was sold.

    The moment a matte black finish comes out I’m buying one of these!

  • Hey Bud I know you are getting tired of answering this question but I am wondering when the MV1 is being released. All of us are waiting patiently for this thing to drop and it’s killing me because I don’t have one yet. I can’t watch the videos anymore cuz you are really making me jealous. :) and I want one. Did I already ask if mine is in the mail yet. The biggest draw for me is being able to control or dictate how I want my session to go being able to heat on demand solves the I gotta puff like a madman until it’s spent or oh shoot I fried my material cuz I spaced out. Thanks again for all you do man really really appreciate it.

  • Isnt Grasshopper the only other on demand portable? ???,Ah thank you Grasshopper, youre a very good student of vape and herbolgy my wise one.

  • Nice job on both videos for this unit. I am excited for this vape because it looks like I will be able to use the crucible to practice some portion control. I thought I saw a crucible case at some point and I was thinking that would be perfect! Anyhow, I think this would be good for use in the home but can’t imagine taking it out in public places. I’d still use my pax for that. Well like everyone else here looking forward to it’s release!

  • Hi!
    I hope you will answer this question:
    I have the Davinci IQ (thanks for your in-depth review!), and from what I understood the MV1 is much better in many ways. I have the Plenty too (thanks for your 2 reviews) and from part 2 you are telling me the MV1 is as powerful as the Plenty but in an handeld volume? Is it right?

  • Hey Bud, thanks for the reviews! Maybe can you tell us how much you helped them to tune MV1? How much it changed since you got involved? And what were the main issues at the start. Would be interesting to hear. Thx and keep up good work ;]

  • Release date? And will you have coupon codes? Also how well does it work with concentrates. I don’t recall seeing anything about that in the two videos.

  • You are an agent for this company given your work with them so your reviews are going to be affected by this, more favorable. People need to understand this.

  • If you want to really get rid of a lot of the skepticism about this vaporizer you need to do a video showing the most vapor you can possible get from a hit off this vape.

    Start at high temperatures, increase the draw resistance, and take a long pull and display the cloud with proper lighting.

    Do the same thing through water and try to white wall a water piece.

    That’s what people really want to see from a vaporizer at the end of the day. You can’t show us how good the flavor is at low temps, but you CAN show us how thick the vapor is at high temps.

  • Extremely Important Question: What happens if material falls through the loading capsule on to that stainless steel plate above the heating element?

    I see a great danger for concentrates leaking through if the concentrate pad is loaded too full.

    Do you have the ability to blow through the heater from the bottom in order to warm and clean that steel plate?

  • Although the Ghost MV1 seems to look and perform quite decent… I can’t help but to think your review and judgement of the devise is definitely biased and might be not as truthful and a bit shrouded by the fact that you did in fact have a part in the manufacturing and/or sale of the product. Maybe its the reason you disabled the comments on your youtube channel regarding this vape? Still looking forward to trying out the Ghost MV1 but I just hope your review isn’t too influenced by your connection to the company.

    • That’s why I’m offering the personal buy-back guarantee, for skeptical peeps like you, even though I’m the most transparent reviewer on the internet.

      YouTube comments are disabled on all of my videos going forward because I don’t have the bandwidth to monitor and reply to all of those messages, that’s why I created the forum where I encourage you to share your thoughts and ask questions.

      • Can we PLEASE not apply Stoner Skepticism to Bud’s review? God, do people have no faith?

        Yes he took part in the process of creating this vape, but I’ve owned 4 vapes now because of Bud’s reliable (iny my opinion) videos and Ive liked all of them (Pax 1, ENano, Volcano and Crafty). If anything, we should appreciate that his expertise went into creating this device whereas other vaporizers are designed by… well probably not people like Bud.

        How many other ‘people on the internet’ are standing behind a product like Bud is? Uhm.. no one. Crazy considering he’s just a guy doing what he does and is willing to accept that burden of returns.

        Im thankful for your videos Bud and Im very curious what my own personal experience with the Ghost will be. I hope others are too.

        • Right on OtherJames …what trips me out as well is how people making demands and shit lol as if they are experts and know how to make these devices. And then, instead of making a decision based solely on what they think, they gonna talk about it and then bandwagon.

          Not to mention the fact that, as you said, this is Bud we’re talkin about. If it were somebody we didn’t know and they started blabbing away about “buy buy buy it now!” then I understand, I’d be the same way cus I wouldn’t know the person from a bucket of paint. But some of us have had experiences where Bud actually guided us to products that made us happy and lived up to our expectations. As he said in his part 2 video, if he were just for the money and screwing people, we all wouldn’t be nowhere near him or his sites to this day….yet here we all are . I’m a supporter of people doin right by others and I’ll always support that cus I would want the same.

      • “YouTube comments are disabled on all of my videos going forward because I don’t have the bandwidth to monitor and reply to all of those messages, that’s why I created the forum where I encourage you to share your thoughts and ask questions.”
        what does that even mean??
        you don’t have the bandwidth to monitor?
        and what you accessing this forum magically doesn’t use up any internet data?

    • What more do you want he is given us a buyback guarantee if you’re not happy what did you get your money back

  • Hi Bud

    From where this unit will be sold eventually? US ? EU? And more importantly, from where is the unit sold when buying it via your link? Im from europe so it would be very nice to be able to buy the vape from EU country to avoid customs fees (even if Im buying it via ur link). Is there EU plugs on fast charger?

    BTW how is it performing when using concentrates? I have deep doubts about convecting style vapes and concentrates. I hope u can prove wrong.

    Thanks for your video reviews.

  • Hi Bud thanks for the video ,count me in,when will it go on sale ?also it sounds a little complicated , if you’re not that mechanically inclined do you think it would be very hard to learn how to use it ?also I will not order from any other place other than the one you recommend for I know I’ll be safe that way I trust your judgment and opinion

  • Aye Bud, I’m curious as to the minor difference of rating the vapor production of the Mv1 an A rather than an A+ like the mighty and the crafty. Why the half Mark off? Is it because you don’t see the clouds from the first draws?

  • Forgot One quick question are the two green parts between the crucible silicone? Maybe you mentioned it but I missed it. Thanks again

  • Thanks Bud! Nice review your making me jealous cuz it really looks like your enjoying that vape. Really looking forward to adding this to my collection. Keep up the nice work your reviews are spot on many enjoy and appreciate your work. Is mine in he mail yet!

  • This vape looks nice, here’s some things I wonder about that I’m hoping you could comment on:

    •Is the external charger included or costs extra? (I have a hunch on this one…)
    •Water adapter usability?
    •Concentrate performance, is there spillage, what kind of concentrate pads?
    •Can you take longer draws by resetting the heater button?
    •Does it overheat and stop heating ala the Firefly 2?
    •Loading capsule durability?
    •Is the loading capsule hot after a session is finished, how long does it take to cool?
    •What is included in the box? How many capsules, batteries, chargers, cables, glass stems, etc. ?


    In case you missed this official update from Ghost Vapes today please check out their post:

    Unfortunately they gave it everything they had to get the store launched today but they still need a small amount of time to feel comfortable launching, which in the end is better for all of us.

    They don’t want to take pre-orders and have you waiting for vapes you already paid for.

    They’re going to be launching their website next week and forum members will get first dibs on reserving their MV1 of choice (no deposit required).

    • Like the Grasshopper that I paid for and then waited three years for delivery…And then had to send it in for service four times in the first eight months I had it. Good move Ghost…sell it when it’s ready and able to ship.

  • Bud how we lookin on getting the review posted? I need to get one of these on order and get back to my yard work. Thanks Bud

  • Hope to be rewarded for my patience and get one of these NOW! That vape looks awesome and checks every box on my list of what I want. I am patiently waiting for the review and website to open up take my money please. Soooooooo close mouth is watering I have dropped everything I’m doing.

    • lol the Black Chrome is awesome it’s actually my fave, check out this pic I just took it shows the colors a little better (shiny vapes are hard to photograph):

      MV1 Colors

      • Yeah tbh I thought the rose color was pink, I’m definitely not into pink, but now that pic shows them much better. I might get one of the chrome colors because I hate having the same as everybody else, I’m a lone wolf follow my own shit…but the satan silver is calling my name. When I saw that, I wanted it. But that’s trivial, now I want the verdict of it’s performance and that will be the highlight of my day after work. If I’m “up in the clouds” the color of that thing is the last imma be thinking about if the vape is the best. I can see that the reflection of light is what causes it to look shinier than it really is, so I can through that and have an eye for that. Where is the 4th color…was it chrome silver?

  • Aye Bud, I want to pre-order and also want that Satin Silver, it looks dope af. Also, I definitely will take you up on that buy back offer, because I’ve been screwed so much in the consumer world lol I’m just about had it. I want to believe in this vape…and I want it to last so long my youngsters will inquire about it. So my next question is, after your testing and review, do you think it’s longevity is promising like some of the other vapes you prefer and like? What can we do if the product does malfunction, is it a long drawn out process to get it fix? I already know that will probably addressed in the warranty topic but details would be nice. Any cool accessories that it comes with? I mean for a nearly $300 product that would be nice if it came with some stuff. But even better if it doesn’t need any, just means it’s that much more efficient. Lol anyways I’m excited and can’t wait for the review and hope it’s like you say…. like a kid seeing the toy they want on commercials.

  • Thank you so much for your awesome vaporiser reviews. I was about to pull the trigger on a mighty or firefly 2 but this ghost MV1 looks so much better. I’m so glad I checked your site. How does the bucket size compare to the mighty/crafty’s? Does it come with something equivalent to storz & bickel liquid pads if I don’t want to fill up whole bucket?
    Many thanks

  • Seems a bit complex, and bulky.

    On the positive side, the performance as you state seems impressive; the removable oven (crucible) and battery are badass.

  • There’s actually 4 colors per Bud’s mini intro review :|… and two of them ik appeal to people.. I guess they went invisible while viewing them hahaha

  • I was extremely happy with you recommendation of the Crafty, 2 yrs later I Lost my Crafty, I was about to buy one on vapeworld & something told me “BRO! Before anything checkout & see what he recommends now”. After watching that video! WTF! I’m willing to wait for as long as it takes for my MV1. MOVE OVER STORZ & BICKEL. Do you know if this company is going into desktop units? Thank you in advance for the answer.

    • Not yet but there will be as soon as I post my review, please standby for updates, the current ETA for my review is 7/15. Thanks for your interest!

  • Also what will the warranty be? What are their other products warrantys and how long has the companie been in buisness? Their website isn’t very informative right now.

    • Please standby for final word on warranty, it will be sufficient I can assure you, their first priority is making sure you enjoy the vape and have no problems. It’s a new company in the vape scene but the people running it behind the scenes are very experienced in inventing and producing high-end consumer products. The ETA for their full website launch is also 7/15 and it will have all the info you’ll wanna know about them.

      • Ok, you’ve got me. I’ve spent days researching different vapes, the last few days deciding between the mighty or da vinci IQ, now it looks like I will wait a bit longer

    • Yes lol, the polished finishes look really really nice in person, they’re just very hard to photograph, and they feel very durable and high quality, I wouldn’t say that if I didn’t believe it.

      They will have a matte Satin Silver color that is only shiny on the oven door and heat sink, I’ll have pics of that one posted ASAP!

  • The “chrome” look is hideous. Definitely should have went with an all matte finish or anything else but that chrome look. It makes it look really cheap like those “chrome” rim covers auto zone sells. The paint will probably peel quickly and not last long at all. This looks like a really good performing vape and I would like one but the chrome is turning me away.

  • Hey guys,

    Thanks very much for posting your questions and feedback, I really do appreciate it a lot and it’s extremely helpful.

    I just posted this update on the forum and I wanted to post it here as well:

    A couple of you guessed it right that I’m under a strict NDA with this vape.

    My original ETA of 7/1 was Ghost’s intended target date not an official launch date. They did not release it publicly or give me a specific launch date but I wanted to give you guys an estimated time-frame. Please direct any frustrations at me and not at Ghost just to be fair to them, they’re really trying hard to make this happen and not disappoint you.

    They spent the last 2 years working on this project under a veil of secrecy. They placed an embargo on media coverage in advance of their launch and I had to plead with them to let me preview it a few weeks ago. I agree with you that this is maybe not the typical way to do things but these guys are pros and everything they do is well thought-out, please don’t worry.

    I’m embracing the different approach because a lot of companies have made the mistake of launching too early and ended up disappointing people. They assured me that they’re going to launch and get this vape in your hands as soon as possible and I believe them.

    This vape is becoming my go-to and I cannot wait for you guys to enjoy it too.

    Your patience, as always, is appreciated more than you can even imagine.


    Stay up!

    • Thanks Bud, I’ll definitely be waiting cus I want to get on that list or at least be one of the first to get it if it’s as spectacular as you say. As I said before lol, you’ll definitely be making us spend the money and I’m sure the company will appreciate you for that.

  • Reading some comments lol I see people judge real quick. Anyways about the superficial stuff like colors and size. From the photos it doesn’t look big at all…it looks like some type of device I’ve seen them skaters use for their electric skateboards. Any type of smoking device such as a vape is going to take up space when considering all its working/quality components the way I see it, but it’s all about how it takes up the space and I think from the looks of this thing, they’ve done well enough. Besides there’s time and place when needing to be discrete. And the shine, well I’m partial about that. When I first saw this, I felt it stood out BUT it’s not in a bad way, it actually looks too unique to look like a vape. I would suggest a blue color cus that’s my color lol. I’m more concerned about it’s function than anything, the price for the value, the flavor, the effectiveness, battery life, durability, it’s longtivity, it’s maintenance and of course be entertained by some nice vape clouds. But I’ll say this as well, I definitely don’t want no shit like I got from that V2 ..that 7 series crap from florida…ill be waiting and expecting the best

  • Lol Bud, you definitely know how to make people spend their money because they way you make it sound…I already want to purchase it …and remember I just bought the arizer air not long ago…but I do want something more portable, and just in case I feel risky to burn something else, I want that option. And the price?! I’m all for spending the best of the buck for something well worth it. I’ll be wait for your review Bud cus if it’s all good, imma get my behind on that list hahaha..dont let me down.

  • this vape sounds great, the ONLY downfall i can think of is
    1. is it water tool friendly?
    2. maybe a future version where its less bulky, say more like davinci iq size form factor = perfect
    3. warranty period?

    but overall still very impressed and will pick one up, on demand temperature regulated, replaceable battery, sounds good to me

  • I am very interested in this vape but i noticed you said you would post a forum we could preorder our mv1 ghost from to recieve a very important accessory when will you be posting the link for that?

  • Hope it’s not another Firefly 2,they must have paid Bud for that review………
    I don’t trust him like i used to do,too many kickbacks in it.

    • Same here that Firefly 2 sucks. I took his word for it. The mighty is good that I have no complaints. But the Firefly does not do nothing for me. I tried every way it sucks even try sucking Vapor out of it sucks.

  • Not impressed. Give me something sleek, gives great hits, long battery life and… really portable. This thing stands out like a sore thumb. Looks way too bulky and that shine…. please. I don’t care about 40 proprietary parts and supposedly next generation technology, sounds like bs. You’re really going to have to do a great convincing job on that review Bud. Airvape XS, Davinci IQ, Pax 3, etc. all look better to me.

  • Tell them to do a matte black, carbon fiber finish (semi gloss)

    As of now its too shiny imo, matte black would probably take the cake as preferred choice

  • It looks like a VR controller, it’s very bulky looking in the hand, and the chrome makes it look cheap or painted metal plastic looking.

    If the internals are not plastic, the outer shell is metal like the arizer air solo (a light metal shell that keeps it cool), battery life is good and you get good clean hits I’m ok with it looking ugly.

    There seems to be a lot of parts and the more parts the more maintaining and possible missing parts or break downs. Are the coils easily replaceable incase they burn out or break. The glass meeting the thin metal screen and ceramic bowl and if so does the other end of ceramic bowl build up material like the DaVinci IQ making it hard to clean.

    This seems like a house unit to me, which I’m fine with, for $295 the quality needs to be good. If you have any input I would ask if you can have the option to make it silent, sometimes you want it to not make a loud vibrating noise and sneak a few hits here and there because the DaVinci IQ is extremely loud with the vibrations. Please see if they can make a matte black or a chromeless color. Also if they can make a more travel size one maybe 25%-50% smaller kind of the concept of mighty and craft (I use mighty as home unit and DaVinci IQ on the go but also use water adapters with DaVinci IQ), make better colors for more of a portable or camping going out to bar/discreet etc…Make this for home and a smaller one for on the go and then you have a HR. ***Also I think this is a must, make a new chamber or screen system because that thin metal screen is going to be extremely to hot to handle just as the ceramic chamber, also it might be easily lost when putting materials in or out.

    I have not seen it in person so this is all just first initial thoughts and concerns I have. I hope this helps in any feedback you might be looking for.

    • Wow, for someone who has never seen or used this unit, it’s amazing the amount of detail you go in to fix it. You’re living in a dream world. Do you realize how much it costs in patents, production maching, development, testing, marketing, etc., etc., to get a product like this to market? You say make ten different colors, different sizes, etc., like money is no object. Sorry, but that’s not possible for a startup and their first product. I would suggest you keep your comments in the basement until you actually try the product first, then give your “professional” review.

  • Thanks for all your reviews! I would love to see a report of your “top 3 best-flavor portables and desktops”. Just a thought…

  • I am on the market for a vaporiser and I am definitely going to buy this one, I hope that you are going to post your review as soon as possible.

  • #thevapecritic need to know when pre sale will be available want this product asap now I am very excited about this product have been waiting for double portable for a long time that is not a combustible vaporizer that will be smooth on the lungs please update asap want this now

  • Sign me up! I want to get this baby. I am going to work extra just to get it. I hope it is as awesome as it looks.

  • Looks really cool but I’ll a few months until they’ve done a few more production runs. It seems that whenever something new comes out, there are a lot of quality control issues the first couple of runs.

  • I think I will pass on it. Looks bulky and fiddly. I prefer my Pax2 which is sleek, discreet, and is a good sipper but not a ripper.

  • What’s great about it is that it looks nothing like anything we’ve seen before so kudos to Ghost for doing it different! Hoping the performance takes me out of this world like it’s looks!

  • DUDE! The vape looks hella ugly and cheap. Is it plastic with a chrome plating? Reminds me of those old toys I used to get from the local Pic ‘N’ Save as a kid.

  • Hi,

    You mentioned these are UK designed, yet they have a $ price tag. Any idea if there will be a UK release date alongside US? Do you have a price for us over here across the water in UK?

  • Thanks as always for your efforts. I was wondering if you could run this through a water piece for massive, milky hits. Thanks again and stay up! :)

  • I want one I just hope it’s like the firefly,I trust your opinion as I did buy the mighty when you were able to get the exchange for me on the firefly thanks to you or I would’ve never got it back thank you so much I love you you’re the best

  • Great review. I’m curious to know how long does the flavor last. I have a davinchi and a crafty. The davinchi flavor last longer to me. In comparison to the davinchi do you think the flavor last longer? And would you recommend this over the davinchi?
    Thanks for all your videos too. I definitely trust your opinion!

  • Can’t wait for this device! On-demand convection is the way to go, especially if it features a removable battery, full temp control and a pod/crucible/capsule system. Also hoping that the MV1 is truly more medically built and driven than most vapes out that feel too much like a toy.

    Bud, How does the vape feel? Heavy duty and solid or light and crispy? Is the main body metal?

    I would love to see some detail pics of the chamber, mouthpiece system etc…Thanks for the awesome preview and keep doin it!

  • Hey Bud, can’t wait to see the review! How would you stack this up to the Mighty? The quick preview already has me considering grabbing the Ghost!

    • Hey Nick it’s a pretty different vape from the Mighty as far as the technology and how it works when you’re using it, and I’ll never say I don’t like the Mighty anymore. But this one is certainly very impressive with what it can do as an on-demand convection unit, the vapor it produces is very good quality and it’s very potent. Stay tuned for the full review bud!

  • Do you have to stir between hits like the firefly 2?. How cool is the vapor?

    I’m sure you’ll cover everything. Bought 3 vapes now based on your reviews, never been surprised or disappointed. Thanks Bud.

    • Stirring will not be required for excellent results with this one, but it can never hurt with a convection vape.

      The vapor is very cool with this one, possibly top 3 smoothest vapor I’ve experienced from any vaporizer, it’s one of the major advantages for sure.

      Thanks for stickin around my friend! ;-)

    • LOL I hear you! We haven’t gotten there yet, this kind of performance in a tiny compact unit, it’s a pretty serious machine.

  • Hey man, thanks for all the information regarding vapes, you really made a difference in this industry.

    A few questions:

    Does it work like the FF2 in that it is not session based?
    What is the heating up and cooling down time?
    What will be the cost around the FF2 or the IQ?

    Thanks agian

    • Hey sup!

      Correct, you heat it up for one draw at a time, and then it cools down until the next draw.

      The first heat up from a cold start takes about 10 seconds, then you start your pull. After that the unit is warmed up and it only takes a few seconds for it to be ready after you press the button.

      Cost will be $295 which is only a tad more than the other ones.

      Stay up!

  • Heya, so this vaporizer can not be used like a session vape(The Mighty)? I’d like to be able to take 11 or more big tokes from a vaporizer ;> Is there something else – new or not – that I can compare with the mighty in terms of a good session vape?

    • Hey that is correct, each packed chamber in this vape is good for about ~5-8 draws depending how you use it. If you want more you’d have to swap out the crucible for another one (it’s gonna come with at least 2).

      As far as the best portable vape for full sessions, where you take 10-20 draws back-to-back in one shot, the Mighty is still on top.

  • Well we know what will be sold out in seconds once released. It will be this “Sexy Beast” of a machine!!!

    • This looks like how I hoped the firefly 2 would be! Instant heat , great vapor, and draws like the crafty. Could be awesome if it is as good as it looks – wish I hadn’t spent the cash on a firefly 2 which has now packed in with a cracked bowl even though it has never been dropped.
