If you smoke cigarettes and are looking to cut back or quit, the SMOK NOVO4 might be for you. I have been using the Novo 4 for months now, and have cut back significantly. I don’t use it for cannabis, and don’t know if you can, as the oil that you use is too thick, but I’m not positive there isn’t a hack for that. There are e-juices that contain CBD, however.


The SMOK NOVO4 is conveniently sized, coming in at 93.5mm by 26.5mm by 17.7mm, or about 3.8 inches long. It weighs in at 51.7 grams, or 1.8 ounces, and has 800mAh battery. It uses the newer USB C charging port, which I like as it doesn’t matter which way it plugs in, it works both ways. I usually only charge it once a day, and haven’t noticed any degradation in battery life.

Juice and coils

The Novo 4 can use nic-salt e-juice, but I personally found it too strong, and use regular e-juice instead, at 6mg. My go to every day flavor is a straight menthol, but I bought 5 extra pods and fill them with flavored juices for a change of pace. I haven’t had to change coils in quite a while, the only one that I did have to change was my own fault, as I didn’t let it soak at all, and it had a burnt taste.


Pocket sized and convenient, the Novo 4 blows decent clouds, and has great taste. If you need an inexpensive pod system, I think the SMOK NOVO 4 might be the right vaporizer for you.

Here’s a video showing how to change the coil and add e-juice. Make sure the pod is empty before taking the coil out, otherwise you will make a mess.


I have been a pot smoker for 44 years, and have some experience with growing. I love marijuana and feel blessed to live in a state where it is legal (Illinois). It is also legal to grow here as long as you have a medical card
