Most people already know by now but for the ones that are not familiar with it, a vaporizer is an electronic device that helps specific materials turn into vapor. Whether it’s dry herbs, concentrates/wax or liquids/oils, a vaporizer is one of the better options if you’re thinking of smoking it. Smoking can cause many different illnesses due to the heat of the smoke, tar build up and many more. Vaporizers just vaporize the active ingredient of your material while leaving all the extra unnecessary stuff out.
Benefits of Vaporizers
Benefits of vaporizers far outweigh the advantages to smoking. Smoking is surely the old school way of doing things and has since been implemented in us that it is the only way to go. Smoking also kills a lot of the active ingredients that you would have smoked and wasted away. Here are just the few ways vaporizing is better than smoking:
- · Discreet – Vaporizers are much more discreet in the way they look and are used. Instead of needing to use a lighter and light your herbs or concentrates, simply press a button, inhale and walk away.
- · Save Money – They do have an upfront cost to them and some can definitely be upwards of $30 to $300 or more. However, after the initial purchase you do not have much upkeep besides your oils or waxes.
- · Conserve – You can conserve more with a vaporizer especially if its temperature controlled. You can choose how much you want to heat it up. The more you heat it up the more you will use.
- · Health – Not many long term studies have come out about vape pens but it helps knowing you are not smoking, burning or combusting any herbs. If you have throat or lung problems, vapor is much cooler so it shouldn’t irritate as much as smoking will.
Different Kinds of Vaporizers
Herbal Vapes – Herbal vaporizers are the main ones dominating the market right now. Whether you just want to go the safer route or want control of how strong you vaporize or burn your herbs, vapes are the better way to go. Most dry herb vaporizers come with the ability to change the temperature on your battery. This helps because not all herbs vaporize at the same temperature. Some maybe more moist or dense than others. Make sure your vaporizer is a convection vaporizer which means the herbs do not come in contact with any heating elements. Conduction vaporizers has the dry herbs sit right on the heating element which burns it.
Wax Vaporizers – Wax or also known as concentrates are a concentrated form of your material. Dab pens can also come with the ability to change temperatures since not all concentrates are the same too. The main types of coils wax vape pens come in are ceramic, titanium and quartz. There is also CBD wax too.
Liquid Vaporizers – Vaporizers are more known for their role in e-Cigarettes to help smoking cessation. Liquid vaporizers are often used with eliquids which contains doses of nicotine but are also used with CBD oils. It is better if your vaporizer comes with a variable voltage option and you get the right atomizer tank for it, you can vape it at higher voltages.
