The Boundless CFX is Boundless’ flagship devices and is a portable dry herb vaporizer that’s designed and engineered to compete with the likes of other top-shelf dry herb vaporizers like the Crafty + Plus from Storz & Bickel. That said, you will find some premium features in the Boundless CFX that allow it to put out a performance as good (or even better) as its competitors. These features include a high-quality herb oven and heating element that combines the benefits and the advantages of both conduction and convection heating allowing the Boundless CFX to provide its users with some of the best tasting vapors one can get from a device in the said platform. The hybrid heating technology of the Boundless CFX is paired with precision temperature controls which not only lets you customize your sessions but also allows you to extract different active ingredients out of your ground botanical plant matter. And if that’s not enough, the Boundless CFX is outfitted with a beefy 2500mAh battery that does not only put out great performance but also give you lasting sessions in between charges. It lets you enjoy your select ground botanicals without having to look for the nearest power outlet after every session. However, should you need to plug it in, you can recharge the Boundless CFX in two ways. Apart from these main features, the Boundless CFX has other tricks up its sleeve like a crisp display screen, a vibration notification system, a magnetic mouthpiece, and an isolated airpath – all geared towards conveniences and impeccable vapor production.
That said, a device chock full of features as the Boundless CFX can’t be as affordable as those with less and fewer features that they can bring to the table. That’s why some consumers think twice before spending money in buying and investing in a vaporizer as feature-laden and as superior as the Boundless CFX. So, if you find yourself contemplating whether or not to get yourself a Boundless CFX, make sure to check out our full review and read some of the device’s pros and cons so you’d know whether the Boundless CFX is the right device for you. Get to know this portable dry herb vaporizer more so you can make an informed decision before you splash the cash. So, let’s not waste any more time and get right on in the review.
A Beast of a Unit
Don’t let the term “portable” fool you. While the Boundless CFX allows you to take it almost anywhere you go, it’s not nearly as pocketable as other portable vaporizers under Boundless’ stable. The Boundless CFX stands nearly 5 inches tall, close to 3 inches wide, and 1.2 inches deep. Sure, you can fit it inside your bag or your purse, but you will probably have a hard time carrying the Boundless CFX at the palm of your hands should you decide that it’s the way you want to carry it as you roam across town on a Saturday night. Plus, it weighs nearly 1 lbs. or 453 grams so holding it long enough could be tiresome. If you’re looking for something smaller or something concealable, you better check the Boundless CFC Lite because the Boundless CFX needs all the real estate it can get. This beast of a unit requires a larger span to fit all the technology and the features it has to offer. Size is always one thing you should consider nowadays especially when shopping for a vaporizer and knowing the exact dimensions of the Boundless CFX (see below information) can help you in making a decision in investing in this portable dry herb vaporizer.
If you’re going to ask us, the “size to feature ratio” of the Boundless CFX is pretty much spot on. And while it’s not as small and compact as other vaporizers, it’s not as heavy and as bulky as lugging around a desktop vaporizer. That said, some of today’s portable dry herb vaporizers aren’t nearly as capable as the Boundless CFX. The substantial weight you feel when handling the Boundless CFX is mainly from the single 2500mAh internal battery installed on the unit. A battery with this much capacity will have a mass that’s equal to its power proportions. The battery can yield an average of 14 to 15 sessions in a single charge. Of course, the number of sessions you get will depend on how frequent you use it and how much high you keep the temperature settings at, but you still get more power from using this beast compared to other devices, even those found in Boundless’ catalog. That power is a handful even for experienced dry herb connoisseurs who have built a tolerance to the psychedelic active ingredients they get from their favorite dry herb strains. For beginners and vape novices who have just started consuming herbs, the Boundless CFX’s battery capacity is more than enough for short and quick sessions with small doses of dry herbs in the Boundless CFX’s chamber. That said, if you’re shopping for a dry herb vaporizer that has all the right features and offers more than enough power to boot, then you should consider checking this bad boy out.
As we’ve briefly covered above, the Boundless CFX is outfitted with precision temperature controls that allow you to customize your sessions. The level of precision and accuracy the Boundless CFX offers is the same kind you get from larger desktop vaporizers which makes it one of the best devices to use for when you want to get specific results from your favorite dry herb strains. Like most of the devices offered by the brand that offer precision temperature controls, the lower temperature ranges are best suited for smooth and flavorful vapor production. On the other hand, the higher temperature profiles are ideal for extracting the potent vapors from your herbs. The folks at Boundless Technology have been designing and manufacturing dry herb vaporizers for decades and they’ve grown good at it having spent countless hours researching and studying the effects of different temperature levels on different dry herb strains. That said, they’ve given the Boundless CFX a wide temperature range. Here’s what it looks like.
100° F to 430° F
37.8° C to 221.1° C
This gives you a good spread of temperature profiles which allow its users to reap the curative benefits of their dry herb strains as well as the psychoactive compounds they have to offer. The settings in between let you enjoy and experience anything from res, relaxation, a good night’s sleep, or deep meditation. Boundless CFX’s precision temperature settings can be seen through its crisp display screen that shows a lot or relevant information including the running temperature, the target temperature, temperature scale, and battery life. The information displayed gives you the necessary details and does not flood you with useless data.
Having a device with precision temperature controls is always handy because you get to customize and personalize your sessions down to the smallest detail and lets you be in control of the situation no matter what. On that note, the Boundless CFX could feel like driving a stick shift. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. Other consumers, especially beginners and vape newcomers, may find that using a device that has precision temperature settings can be a bit daunting. Not only will you have to decide which temperature setting to choose but you also have to do it manually. One should have some level of basic understanding of cannabinoids and how they react to heat in order to maximize their time with the Boundless CFX. So, if you’re a beginner looking for an easy device to work with, you should be checking out other vaporizers from Boundless that have preset temperature controls. However, if you don’t mind a little learning curve, the Boundless CFX is worth checking out.
Clean Vapor Production
Under the hood, the Boundless CFX uses an herb oven that’s made of ceramic. For the uninitiated, ceramic is an inert material and one that’s capable of releasing the active ingredients from your botanicals with clean vapor production. That’s because ceramic is capable of heating your herbs without getting to the point of combustion. It slowly but surely ramps up heat and therefore creates the perfect environment for your dry herbs. The Boundless CFX is also outfitted with a hybrid oven that uses the power of both convection and conduction heating to deliver the best vapors one can get from a portable device. Conduction heating uses the heat coming directly from the heating element, or in this case, the heat coming from the walls of the chamber. On the other hand, convection heating uses hot air to vaporize your herbs instead. Combining hot air and the heat from the walls of the herb chamber allows the Boundless CFX to effectively and efficiently permeate your ground botanicals. This results not only in flavorful vapors but in the faithful preservation of the overall quality of your select dry herb strains.
