If you’ve recently decided to invest in a commercial vaporizer but know little to nothing about what they do, how they work, or what kinds of vaporizers exist, then you are in the right spot. We’ve gathered up a basic “what’s what” of herbal vaporizers and what you can expect when you head out to find the perfect one for your needs.
If you are an avid smoker, whether its tobacco or different herbs that you’re smoking, you have likely heard of vaporizers. Of course, there is a lot more to these nifty gadgets than meets the eye. For example, herbal vaporizers contain internal heating components, we’ll get into that a bit more later, that heat up-or vaporize-herbs and transform them into a pleasant vapor. That vapor is much cleaner and far less toxic than the chemicals contained within traditional smoke. You can use a blend of oils, dry herbs, and pure chemicals to achieve the “high” you are after. Anyone who smokes on a frequent basis can greatly benefit from using a vaporizer as they limit toxins without reducing the THC levels that naturally occur in marijuana. Technology has helped create a more “convenient” way to enjoy greenery, and thanks to herbal vaporizers you can smoke without the fear of adverse health effects.
Different Kinds of Herbal Vaporizers
Just like any other industry, the vape market has created numerous types of vaporizers for consumers to indulge in. From large to small, desktop to portable, digital to manual there is a virtually endless supply of vaporizers on the market. While some vaporizers are specifically geared towards tobacco smoke, the vast majority can be used for herbal vaping. Some vaporizers are even used for patients who are prescribed marijuana for pain relief. Often times their doctor suggests investing in a vaporizer to avoid inhaling toxic carcinogens commonly found within marijuana smoke.
In reality, there is an herbal vaporizer for any type of smoker out there.
Whats the Difference Between Desktop and Portable Herbal Vaporizers?
Desktop vaporizers are bigger and bulkier herbal vaporizers however they work optimal. Portable herbal vaporizers performance can vary widely but they are purchased more because they don’t cost as much usually. Desktop vaporizers are not rather discreet and they usually need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet. Portable vaporizers are charged or filled up with butane and continue working for 45 minutes to a couple days.
One of the more commonly asked questions about vaporizers is what is the difference between conduction and convection heating? The answer is complicated, but we’ll take a stab at it.
Conduction heating is similar to smoking out of a pipe in that the heating element must be in direct contact with the herbs in order to produce a smooth vapor. At its core, conduction heating is the simplest form of vaping available and is becoming less popular as new, more efficient vaporizers are released on to the market.
Convection heating is caused by forced hot air blowing up and against herbs thereby creating vapor. Typically, a fan is used next to the heater to push the vapor up and out while extracting the herbs ingredients.
What are the Benefits of Herbal Vaporizers?
There are countless benefits to using an herbal vaporizer over traditional pipe or paper smoking, but the ones that stick out to us include efficiency, dosage control, reduced toxins, and affordability. Save yourself from inhaling carcinogens by investing in an herbal vaporizer.
