The Ghost MV1 is a dry herb vaporizer with a fast and powerful vapor. The near-instant heat-up makes the Ghost MV1 a great portable vape for all-day carry and use.
In my updated Ghost MV1 review video, I venture outside the typical vape review studio and show you how the MV1 performs in the real world.

Ghost P of the V Puffitup
I start my day and the Ghost MV1 Review in the park for my daily meditation and … medication.
The Ghost MV1 is an on-demand vaporizer for dry herb, which means it doesn’t vaporize your marijuana until you tell it to. When the coast is clear and no kids are lookin’, hold the button down and wait for the vibration. Put the mouthpiece to your lips and rip it. The MV1 produces a potent and delicious cloud of vapor at the touch of a button.
I like to use a higher temperature and fully extract the .15g crucible in 2 or 3 hits.
Hardest Hitting On-Demand Convection Vaporizer
The Ghost MV1 is the hardest hitting battery powered dry herb vaporizer with on-demand convection.
The MV1 will get you high in a single hit. No other vape offers such a quick lift at the push of a button. You can literally turn this vape on and activate the heater while its still in your pocket. When its ready, pull it out and take your meds. It’s just a vape to the public, especially if you have a beard.
Best Tasting Vapor
The MV1 extracts quickly and smoothly. The full convection heater delivers a terpene rich vapor that’s been cooled and fluffed by the clever heatsink design and glass-like mouthpiece.
The first couple of hits from a fresh crucible are the best tasting and feeling vapor I’ve experienced from any vape with a button or a battery.
As the crucible finishes, the taste diminishes and becomes rather stale. The vapor remains cool and smooth, but the taste is less desirable. The first couple hits make up for it. 🙂
The Ghost MV1 can vape 14 crucibles on a single charge. That’s 14 highs. FOURTEEN .15g trips to the moon.
And the 13th crucible was every bit as powerful as the first. The 14th suffered. I’ll forgive this one.
I’m still not a fan of this interface. The little crucibles and the dispenser work well for on-the-go usage, but for vaping at home the process becomes tedious. The vape itself as improved over the year and the fit has become less finicky than earlier versions.
Ghost MV1 Vaporizer Maintenance
The maintenance factor is important to me. The daily routine of the Ghost MV1 is really only related to the crucibles. The MV1 crucibles are ceramic and can be cleaned with a small brush. I soak my crucibles and screens in alcohol about once every 10 days with daily use. Emptying the crucible and brushing off the screen while it’s still warm will keep it cleaner longer. The finger burns are worth it.
Cleaning the heatsink is more involved. I’ve let my MV1 get VERY dirty without any effect on performance. To clean the Ghost MV1 heatsink, take it apart and soak it in 91% isopropyl alcohol. Brush clean and re-assemble.
** Previous MV1s tested were all super sensitive to cleanliness and needed deep cleaning every battery charge. Updated heatsink and mouthpiece appear to be bullet-proof and VERY reliable**
Because the Ghost MV1 went through rigorous updates over the last year and I have actually reviewed the Ghost MV1 vaporizer several times – each with progressive improvements – I’m leaving the previous MV1 review content here so to help you understand my opinions and reasonings.
Ghost MV1 Review from August 2018
It’s been a year since the original overhyped Ghost MV1 drama. Vape Critic hyped the MV1 for many months exclaiming it as the best vape ever, but when it finally released it was a dud.
Ghost spent the next 10 months improving the vaporizer and solving most of the issues and I’m happy to offer an updated review the Ghost MV1.
Unlike other reviewers, I make no money from the Ghost MV1. I even purchased my units with my own money…
Here is what Ghost fixed after my first MV1 review
– redesigned heatsink and mouthpiece gasket to prevent leaky airpath
– improved interior surface of the heatsink to reduce glass-on-ceramic scratching
– reprogrammed software to maximize battery life and bring it into an acceptable range
– designed and launched a crucible dispenser for us stoners who vape more than .1g at a time
– fixed tolerance gaps in silicone/crucible fitting to eliminate air leaking
– tweaked software to reduce electronic noise
Here’s what they didn’t fix
Crucibles – Ghost is committed to the crucibles. They’re a pain in the ass to deal with now because they’re ceramic and stainless steel and re-usable. They’re small and difficult to deal with, especially when they’re hot. These will eventually be replaced with disposable K-cup style pods, trading convenience for landfill space. Even worse.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeee – The vape makes a high pitch squealing sound when in use. It’s not loud or obnoxious to the point where it bothers everyone in the room, but it’s loud enough to bother me. Partly because I know it’s coming from low-quality electronic parts…
Here’s the good parts of my Ghost MV1 Review
Vapor Taste & Quality
The MV1 does put out some fantastic vapor. It is punchy, pure, and it tastes great. The MV1 is an on-demand vape. Push the button*, take a hit, put the vape away if that one hit was enough for you.
The crucible only holds .1g or less of ground cannabis. The vapor experience depends on your draw length and heat settings.
Vaporization & Extraction
The Ghost MV1 does a great job evenly extracting the THC and cannabinoids from dry herb and concentrates. Several comments and reviews mention a ‘magical factor’ that somehow extracts more or gets you higher than other vapes. This is nonsense. The Ghost MV1 won’t get you any higher than any other vape would.
At higher temperature settings the Ghost MV1 will completely extract a crucible in 3-6 long draws.
On Demand Dry Herb Vapor
I’ve never really been a fan of on-demand vaporizers until the (fixed and updated) Ghost MV1 showed me what it can do. With the loaded and ready MV1 in your pocket, you’re always 20 seconds away from a rich and tasty cloud of cannabinoids.
The on-demand usage is perfect for stepping into the men’s room and catching a quick lift while the wife and mother-in-law do their thing at whatever-the-fuck-store.
The Ghost MV1 is currently $295 with an extra battery, fast charger, and crucible dispenser.
The standalone MV1 is $295.
