We’re always on the lookout here at Elements Boulder Dispensary for the latest new gadget, and boy do we have a doozie for you this time. Lookah has really upped their game with their new Seahorse Pro device. They’re beautiful and sleek, with a uniquely designed shape unlike anything else on the market. It has a wide body housing the battery and narrows as it comes down to the slender snout and the mouthpiece, giving it that iconic seahorse shape. Primarily the Seahorse Pro is an electronic dab pen designed for dabbing on the go. The Seahorse features an easily-removable glass chamber to cool your dabs nicely before they hit your lungs. The pen is button activated. It uses the standard five clicks on and off, three clicks to change heat settings, and then you just hold down the button, dab the quartz tip into your concentrate, and inhale. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. But that’s not all it does.
The Lookah Seahorse Pro also fits 510 threaded vape cartridges as well, so you don’t need a separate pen for both your dabs and carts. All you have to do is unscrew the quartz tip the Seahorse comes with and in its place you thread in your cartridge, and voila now you have a button operated, multi-heat vape battery. What’s kind of crazy is how the design allows you to hit your cartridge as you normally would out of the tip of the cartridge itself AND out of the Seahorse’s glass mouthpiece/chamber, thus cooling your vape and making it extra smooth.
The Seahorse Pro also comes with a bunch of nifty adapters to allow it to connect to any standard 14mm or 18mm dab rig. The adapters include a neon green silicone hose and two silicone adapters that allow you to port your Seahorse Pro into your dab rig and both of which connect to the silicone hose. You can connect the Seahorse to a rig in one of two ways. First, while you have a cartridge attached, you can place a silicone adapter over the glass chamber and port the entire device into your rig right where your banger would normally slot in. Then you hold down the button and rip away: now you have a rig setup if you want to enjoy some of your nicer live resin and rosin cartridges at home so that the water in your rig can cool the concentrate as you inhale. Second, when you have your quartz or ceramic tip attached, you can affix both adapters to the ends of the hose, slide an adapter over the glass chamber like the other method, and attach the other end of the hose to the rig where your banger sits. And then you just use it as you would in dab pen mode by holding down the button and dipping into concentrate while inhaling, except instead of inhaling through the Seahorse, you inhale through your rig like with more traditional dabs, once again cooling the vapor by running it through the cooling chambers and water in the rig.

Essentially this bad boy doubles as an affordable, portable E-nail that you can also use at home when you have access to some fun accessories. So whether you’re at home or on the go, the Seahorse Pro will fit in well with your dab routine. I have an $500 Errlectric E-nail at home, and honestly nowadays it sees less use than my Seahorse, because the Seahorse is just flat out quicker, more convenient, more easily operable than even the high end electric dab rigs. And if you’re concerned about the quality and composition of the heating element, there’s no need to worry: they come standard with a quartz tip and Lookah also sells both quartz and ceramic replacement tips if that’s more your pace. I’ve only gotten to play around with the quartz tips so far, but the taste that comes through is on point. I don’t even feel bad dabbing some of my fanciest, solventless 710 Live Rosin dabs with this fella, because the quartz keeps that terp profile intact and the variable heat settings allow me to dab at lower temps so I don’t just cook off some of the less shelf-stable dabs. Whether it’s at home or on the go, my Seahorse Pro sees use on the daily now.
From personal experience with dab pens, I’m all-in on the Seahorse Pro. Not only does it look cool and work well but it’s durable too. For me that’s a big issue. Most vapes and dab pens don’t last long in my pockets, because I spend all day standing up and squatting down to grab weed jars out from underneath our counter–this leads the battery to bend across my leg as my pants tighten, and over time the battery breaks, the cartridge leaks, or some connection shorts out. And of course this kind of damage isn’t warranted, so each time this happens I’m SOL. The nice thing about the Seahorse Pro is how durable the thick body is. It still fits in my pocket but is sturdy enough to withstand the stresses of daily carry, unlike the Terp Pen and most 510 threaded batteries. The amount of force it would take to snap the body which houses the battery would have to be pretty substantial. I have had mine for a month now and it shows no signs of wear and tear, despite being in my pockets literally every day. And from a maintenance perspective, the Seahorse Pro is super easy to clean compared to other electric dab pens I’ve had experience with. This for two reasons: the glass mouthpiece/chamber just pops right off and has a wide enough mouth to make it effortless to run the cleaning tool through. You can even stick it in the dishwasher. The only other piece that eventually needs to be cleaned is the airway between the tip and the chamber. It’s an inch long. Several other pens I’ve used have a much longer airway for concentrate to get sucked up into over time, and it can be a massive pain to thread something the entire length. The Seahorse Pro on the other hand is a snap. Instead of five to ten parts, the Seahorse has four components, if you don’t count the silicone rig attachments: the glass chamber, the body that houses the batter, and the 510 threaded quartz tip, and the cap that goes over the quartz tip. On average it takes me maybe two minutes total to disassemble, clean, and assemble the entire contraption. Upkeep couldn’t be easier.
On the whole, I can’t say enough good things about the Seahorse Pro. And I’m not the only one. I believe four of our staff now have Seahorses and use them on the regular, and if that’s not a ringing endorsement by professional potheads, I don’t know what is. What’s not to like about an affordable, convenient, dab apparatus that can be used in a variety of settings, from on-the-go to at-home? So if you’re looking for a new way to broaden your dab horizons, look no further that the Lookah Seahorse Pro, now in-stock at Elements Boulder!
