If you want a better idea of what your options are, we’ve provided a brief guide to what a portable vaporizer is and what kinds are out there.

What is a Vaporizer?

Gone are the days of lighting up a rolled piece of paper that offers virtually no protection to your lungs. Now, both herbs and tobacco are lit up with electrical power that quickly and precisely heats them to the proper temperature creating a powerful vapor along the way. Once inhaled, vapers get the “effect” they are after without risking all the harmful side-effects of inhaling toxins.

By combusting natural materials to insanely high temperatures quickly, the vapor is infused with all of the powerful active ingredients that you are after. By bypassing tar loaded smoke, you keep your lungs healthy without sacrificing the relaxing and soothing effect of smoking.

Dry Herb Vaporizers: Also known as Marijuana Vaporizers are great for dry herbs, cannabis leaves and more. It usually has a deep chamber that is ceramic, stainless steel or all glass. There is a heating coil element on top, the sides or the bottom of it that is ready to heat up the herbs within a minute depending on portable vaporizers.

Wax Vaporizers: Concentrates, wax and hash oils need a different kind of coil to heat them up. A much smaller chamber with a coil that is smooth ceramic or a tightly wrapped coil around a wick. Gently use a dab tool and lay the wax on the coil.

Electronic Cigarettes: As many of you have seen, people walk around blowing clouds of vapor with either big boxy looking devices or small pen shaped vaporizers. Well these are electronic cigarettes or e-cigs which can hold some nicotine in there to help you quit cigarettes.
