Industry Spotlight: Grenco Science

For the next installment of our ongoing industry spotlight, we highlight one of the OG’s of the portable cannabis vaporizer industry Grenco Science. We discuss their company origins, outline their current market share, and discuss some of their awesome products.

Company Origins

Grenco Science, makers of the highly popular G-Pen portable vaporizers, is one of the most amazing brands in the vape game. They have been in business since 2011, which is rather remarkable because the industry evolves and changes as much or more than any other. We have used many of their products and we will discuss those later.

Grenco Science’s founders and Chris Folkerts and Anthony Marino compiled a team to develop a lifestyle brand. While they were very successful with this initial endeavor, they have since evolved into a cutting-edge tech brand that boasts international distribution. They are now in 19 states and 29 different countries. They have development facilities in 5 major U.S. cities as well as China and have working relationships with 5 factories that produce vaporizers, according to an interview with New Cannabis Ventures.

Because Grenco had very little competition when they first emerged almost 10 years ago, they were able to achieve success for themselves early on. Vaporization has come a long way since then, and only companies with a proven track record like G-Pen could expect to survive something as serious as 2019’s vape crisis. Grenco was well-funded from the jump, but with a strategic partnership, they seek to grow even further.

Grenco Partners with Vapium

Last year, Grenco announced that they were forming a joint venture with fellow vape manufacturers Vapium to develop an ‘accurate dosing protocol’. There is a void in the cannabis industry for accurate dosage, as many consumers find it difficult to know exactly what they are getting. Vapium is a resident of Johnson & Johnson Innovation - JLABS. Their goal is to develop the dosing protocols so doctors feel more confident prescribing their patients with medical cannabis. This partnership has stalled a bit due to COVID-19 - like most things have in 2020 - but they should take off even further in 2021.

Grenco Science: The Products

Finally, we get to the fun part! The Grenco Science brand features some of the best portable vaporizers you can buy. Their flagship devices were for dry herbs: the G-Pen and the G-Pen Pro. With the success of these devices, they developed the G-Pen Elite which had upgrades over its older siblings based on feedback from consumers.

After that, they added the concentrate vaporizers the Nova and the Nova LXE as well as the oil vaporizer the Gio. The Nova is one of the best wax pens out there right now, but it has the added benefit of vaping pre-filled cartridges because of its 510 threading.

The new G-Pen Roam offers a dab rig experience on the go, heating concentrates to 800 degrees F in about 30-45 seconds. This type of technology was unheard of when Grenco first got started as a lifestyle brand, but their development team is responsible for bringing us such awesomeness.

"The Grenco Science brand features some of the best portable vaporizers you can buy."

Most recently, the Grenco Science brand responds to a trend in the vaporizer industry by offering an affordable entry-level dry herb vape for under $100. The G-Pen Dash runs for about $80 and is hand-held, easy to clean and load, and the vapor quality isn’t bad - according to what we’ve heard from most consumers.

Most of G-Pen’s products were $250 and above before the Dash, allowing flower lovers to try a G-Pen product without breaking the bank. Grenco isn’t finished there. They will more than likely be releasing at least one more device before the end of 2020, and we will be sure to keep you updated when they do.

Grenco Makes a Dedication to Charity

A lot of companies say that they want to help to promote change, but Grenco Science actually does it. They created their Charity Series, which is a series of products that are linked to nonprofit organizations. With each unit they sell, a portion of net proceeds is donated to charity.

Obviously, not all companies can make this kind of dedication to charity, but many big companies that can choose not to. This is one of the reasons why we love highlighting companies like Grenco because they put their money where their mouths are. As the cannabis industry evolves along with the changing attitudes and needs of we the consumers, we will only see more of this happening. One thing we would love to see Grenco Science do more of is put their tech team to work on developing more sustainable products and using eco-friendly packaging. Companies won’t sell eco-friendly products, however, unless consumers like us demand it. And we make those demands with dollars.
