What are Vaporizers?
One of the main reasons people turn to vaporizers for their medicinal/tobacco needs is the potential health benefits. When you vape, the only thing you produce is vapor, not smoke. This is because the herbs never reach a temperature that causes combustion. When compared to smoking, vapor is a gaseous state achieved by heating, but not burning the material. This likely produces less residue and much fewer toxins. Another thing to note is that vaporizers can release up to 100% of your herbs active substances over time versus all at once when smoked. This allows you to enjoy any medicinal compounds of your herbs and a much more flavorful vapor draw.
Who Should Use a Vaporizer?
There are a multitude of reasons for people to start vaping. Vaporizers tend to use less material per session so you save money in the long run. When compared to smoking, vapes provide a combustion-free option which is consider by many to be a healthier choice. Vaping is much easier on your lungs and throat than smoking. This is because it produces no smoke. And since the temperature on most vaporizers rarely goes above 500°F, you may not even feel the vapor as it enters your system.
Most popular desktop vaporizers are convection style, which means the herb sits above the heat source and air is pulled through it to create vapor. As a result, most vaping aficionados migrate towards these devices as they provide some serious top tier performance. Also known as session or tabletop vaporizers, desktop units aren’t just more consistent than portable vaporizers, but they provide a much more potent cloud of vapor. Which in the end is what everyone really wants, right? There are even some hybrid models that give you the choice of enjoying your vapor through the whip (aka tube) or via the balloon bag system, making them extremely versatile. Two perfect examples would be the Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer and the newly released Volcano Hybrid from Storz & Bickel. Although they may differ in price, they both offer an incredible experience for anyone who is looking to take their vape game to the next level.
As the name states, portable vaporizers are just that, a handheld vaporizer that you can take anywhere and use discreetly. Early portable models where not very efficient and often burned the material. Luckily as technology advanced in the vape industry, portable vape improved a lot. You’ll know find portables with digital display screens, retractable mouthpieces, haptic feedback and more! If you decide to go with a portable, make sure it’s compatible with the material you plan on vaping. Some portable units are only compatible with dry herb. There are multi-compatible options you can pick up, such as the PAX portable vaporizer that gives you the option to vape dry herb or concentrates. Another thing to consider is the size of the vaporizer. The smaller the size, the more discreet you can be with it. However, do note that the battery life of the unit will take a hit the smaller you go. Which decreases the time you get to use your device before having to recharge it.
What is a cartridge vaporizer you might ask? It’s basically a device that you can use with prefilled oil or wax tanks. This gives you the luxury of vaping on the go without draining your wallet. The perfect example would be the Sutra Auto Cartridge Vaporizer. This little device won’t break the bank and is compatible with virtually any 510-thread cartridge on the market. Now that you have your cartridge vape, all you need is to pop in an oil tank filled with your favorite oil and vape away. You can generally find these tanks already preloaded at your local dispensary or online if your state permits. And if you’re the adventurous type, you can pick up an empty refillable tank to fill with your own oils.
